When Alice TodHunter Moon was five years old, she saw a beautiful golden Dragon Boat fly over her PathFinder village. She knew at once that the boat was Magykal.
That was years ago, before her mother died, her father disappeared at sea, and the Garmin took her best friend, Ferdie.
Now it's up to Tod and Ferdie's brother, Oskar, to rescue Ferdie from the Garmins' keeper, the malevolent Lady. Their journey takes them to the Castle, where they receive help from ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap and ex-ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand.
But the Lady's brother, the Darke sorcerer Oraton-Marr, has a plan that will put everyone Tod holds dear in danger. To save her people, Tod must embrace her identity as a PathFinder and navigate the Ancient Ways, mysterious Magykal paths leading to unfamiliar - and sometimes dangerous - lands.
Taking place seven years after the story arc of the original best-selling Septimus Heap series, PathFinder celebrates the joy of discovering one's own personal Magyk and of choosing the path that lets that Magyk flourish and grow.

Gerard Doyle would have been better
Great start to Sage's offshoot series, but!
Continues storyline well!
Alice "Tod" Todhunter Moon--who can resist a young, female character finding her inner warrior?
Nicola Barber is a fine narrator, and I enjoyed her development of the new characters. However, my question is why would there be a change of narrators? I would get it if this wasn't an offshoot series that involves several characters already well established and identifiable, but even with a female lead, Gerard Doyle should have continued as the narrator. He has given so many of the characters their audio personalities and the change of narration is jarring and detracts from Sage's great new storyline to widen and enrich the world of Septimus Heap she has created.
Angie Sage incorporates humor, tender moments, romance, danger and plenty of action which allows the reader a scope of emotions. This keeps you reading and/or listening!
Bring back Gerard Doyle! This does not mean Barber isn't also a great narrator, I just want the real characters from the original series back.
