Publisher's Summary

When Silas Heap unseals a forgotten room in the palace, he releases the ghost of a queen who lived 500 years earlier. Queen Etheldredda is as awful in death as she was in life, and she's still up to no good. Her diabolical plan to give herself everlasting life requires Jenna's compliance, Septimus' disappearance, and the talents of her son, Marcellus Pye, a famous alchemist and physician. And if Queen Etheldredda's plot involves Jenna and Septimus, then it will surely involve Nicko, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, Beetle, Stanley, Sarah, Silas, Spit Fyre, Aunt Zelda, and all of the other wacky, wonderful characters that made Magyk and Flyte so memorable.

Wonderful Series

As a mother of very young children, I'm always on the hunt for books that interest me, yet are kid friendly. (no cussing, vulgarity, etc) This series is wonderful. If you liked the other Septimus books, you'll enjoy this one as well. The narrator is very good (after getting used to him in the second book) and one that I enjoy listening to. Though I do wish the had kept the original narrator from the first Septimus book.

wish they would make movies from these books.

Would you listen to Physik again? Why?

i read these books to my kids and even my husband would stop and listen. i would compare these to the harry potter books. great imagination. great adventure. im 43 and plan to listen to all of the angie sage books. clean reading.

Who was your favorite character and why?

cant choose

What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

easy to understand and great expression

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

continue in the love of wizards and imagination with septimus heap and his adventures.

Too many late nights

This series is wonderful, full of intrigue and humour and very adictive for both adults and children alike. They have caused my 10yr old son to get into trouble more than once for staying up very late listening to them on his ipod in the dark when he was supposed to be sleeping. Next book PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

love the septimus series but....

this was probably the most upsetting story so far. what etheldredda did to her own children, just so she could be queen forever.
