Overview

When Silas Heap unSeals a forgotten room in the Palace, he releases the ghost of a Queen who lived five hundred 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's 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.

With heart-stopping action and a dash of humor, Angie Sage continues the fantastical journey of Septimus Heap.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Silas has only himself to blame for sparking the plot of the third Septimus Heap installment. Unsealing a long-forgotten room in the palace, he accidentally unleashes the formerly inert spirit of malevolent old Queen Etheldredda. Five hundred years of downtime have not mellowed the scheming monarch; in fact, she's now eager to enact a devilish plan to make herself immortal and omnipotent. To neutralize her, Septimus and his allies must go into corrective overdrive. Plot surprises, engaging characters, and snappy wit.
ALA Booklist
“Few fans of the best-selling Septimus Heap series will be disappointed.”
Children's Literature - Stephanie Guerra
The plot in this third magical adventure of the "Septimus Heap" series weaves and darts in unexpected directions, entertaining the reader with tight prose, humorous observations, and notable new characters along the way. When the ghost of Queen Etheldredda the Awful is released from the portrait where she has been locked for centuries, she starts wreaking havoc in her quest to reclaim the throne from its rightful heir, Princess Jenna. As if Etheldredda is not plagued enough, a fearful sickness spreads through the kingdom and people start to question Jenna's rule. It takes time travel, Septimus' crash course in the study of physik, and the help of a wayward teenage dragon to discover the mysterious cause of the plague and put Etheldredda back in the portrait where she belongs. Angie Sage is an expert craftsman; she has created a believable fantasy world peopled with colorful characters and rich with adventure. She navigates without a slip the complicated task of writing time travel into her plot and once again delivers a most compelling and satisfying story. Fans of J.K. Rowling and Eion Colfer will be sure to love Sage's books.
VOYA - Mary Ann Darby
In this third installment of the Septimus Heap series, while Septimus tries to discover a cure for a mysterious disease sweeping through the Castle and its environs, Jenna must deal with an unwelcome ghost of a dreadful queen from the past, who manages to have Septimus yanked through a mirror to the Castle five hundred years earlier so that he can assist her son, an alchemist. Determined to bring Septimus back, Jenna finds help from a young Northern Trader named Snorri, Sep's brother Nicko, Spit Fyre, Stanley the rat, and a host of others-ghost, animal, and human alike. When Jenna and her companions also go back in time, the full story of the horrible plotting Queen Etheldredda emerges, but Septimus and Jenna respectively find a cure and dodge a bullet. The story starts off with what seems to be an incident disconnected from Septimus, Jenna, and the other main characters of the story and then follows new and very likeable Snorri and her changing cat, which might leave some readers a bit confused. But Sage quickly heads back to the travails of Septimus and Jenna, as well as many others of the enjoyable cast, weaving the bits and pieces into a magykal tapestry of merriment, bordered by Sage's quick wit. By the middle of the tale, readers will be indubitably hooked-worrying, laughing, and gasping over the nonstop adventures of this engaging troupe. Fans of the first two books will not be disappointed with this installment and will certainly hope for more.
School Library Journal

Gr 4-10
In the third volume in the series, the young Apprentice to the Extraordinary Wizard yearns to go beyond his training in Magyk to Physik, an ancient form of healing championed by the great Physician Marcellus Pye. He gets his chance when the decrepit, 500-year-old Marcellus kidnaps Septimus back in time to help him turn his ill-fated tincture for everlasting life into one for everlasting youth. Princess Jenna, joined by Nicko and his love interest, a new character named Snorri, goes searching for a way to reach Septimus and bring him back to his rightful time. She must also elude the ghost of Marcellus's mother, Queen Etheldredda, who is bent on murdering the princess so she can assume the throne. Explanations of time travel are wisely avoided: "at that point, Septimus' brain refused to think anymore," and many other plot elements are juggled successfully. There are too many characters to keep track of, however, including lesser figures who are not presented with enough background information. Readers will quickly warm up to the stars of the book, sketched with liberal doses of humor, and all back in top form. Chapters alternate points of view, keeping suspense high, while lots of vivid details portray a palace life humming with Magyk. Fans of the series will enjoy the secrets that are revealed as Physik delves deeper into the labyrinthine palace walls and will eagerly await the next installment.

Chapter One

Snorri Snorrelssen

Snorri Snorrelssen guided her trading barge up the quiet waters of the river toward the Castle.

It was a misty autumn afternoon and Snorri was relieved to have left the turbulent tidal waters of the Port behind her. The wind had dropped but enough breeze caught the huge sail of the barge-named Alfrún, after her mother who owned it-o enable her to steer the boat safely around Raven's Rock and head for the quay just beyond Sally Mullin's Tea and Ale House.

Two young fishermen, not much older than Snorri herself, had just returned from a day's successful herring catch and were more than happy to catch the heavy hemp ropes that Snorri threw to shore. Eager to show their skills, they tied the ropes around two large posts on the quay and made the Alfrún secure. The fishermen were also more than happy to dispense all kinds of advice on how to take the sail down and the best way to stow the ropes, which Snorri ignored, partly because she hardly understood what they were saying but mainly because no one told Snorri Snorrelssen what to do-no one, not even her mother. Especially not her mother.

Snorri, tall for her age, was slim, wiry and surprisingly strong. With the practiced ease of someone who had spent the lasttwo weeks at sea sailing alone, Snorri lowered the great canvas sail and rolled up the vast folds of heavy cloth; then she heaved the ropes into neat coils and secured the tiller. Aware that she was being watched by the fishermen, Snorri locked the hatch to the hold below, which was full of heavy bales of thick woolen cloth, sacks of pickling spice, great barrels of salted fish and some particularly fine reindeer-skin boots. At last-ignoring more offers of help-Snorri pushed the gangplank out and came ashore, leaving Ullr, her small orange cat with a black-tipped tail, to prowl the deck and keep the rats at bay.

Snorri had been at sea for more than two weeks and she had been looking forward to stepping onto firm land again, but as she walked along the quay it felt to her as if she were still on board the Alfrún, for the quay seemed to move beneath her feet just as the old barge had done. The fishermen, who should already have gone home to their respective mothers, were sitting on a pile of empty lobster pots. "Evening, miss," one of them called out.

Snorri ignored him. She made her way to the end of the quay and took the well-trodden path that led to a large new pontoon, on which a thriving café was built. It was a very stylish two-story wooden building with long, low windows that looked out across the river. The café looked inviting in the chill early-evening air, with a warm yellow light coming from the oil lamps that hung from the ceiling. As Snorri walked across the wooden walkway that led onto the pontoon she could hardly believe that, at long last, she was here-at the fabled Sally Mullin's Tea and Ale House. Excited, but feeling very nervous, Snorri pushed open the double doors to the café and nearly fell over a long line of fire buckets full of sand and water.

There was always a general buzz of friendly conversation in Sally Mullin's café, but as soon as Snorri stepped over the threshold the buzz suddenly stopped, as though someone had thrown a switch. Almost in unison, every customer put down their drink and stared at the young stranger who wore the distinctive robes of the Hanseatic League, to which all Northern Traders belonged. Feeling herself blushing and wishing furiously that she wasn't, Snorri advanced toward the bar, determined to order one of Sally's barley cakes and a half-pint mug of the Springo Special Ale that she had heard so much about.

Sally Mullin, a short round woman with an equal dusting of freckles and barley flour on her cheeks, bustled out of the kitchen. Seeing the dark red robes of a Northern Trader and the typical leather headband, her face took on a scowl. "I don't serve Northern Traders in here," she snapped.

Snorri looked puzzled. She was not sure that she understood what Sally had said, although she could tell that Sally was not exactly welcoming.

"You saw the notice on the door," Sally said when Snorri showed no sign of leaving. "No Northern Traders. You are not welcome here, not in my café."

"She's only a lass, Sal," someone called out. "Give the girl a chance."

There was a general murmur of assent from the other customers. Sally Mullin gave Snorri a closer look and her expression softened. It was true; she was only a girl-maybe sixteen at the most, thought Sally. She had the typical white-blond hair and pale, almost translucent blue eyes that most of the Traders had, but she did not have that hard-bitten look that Sally had come to remember with a shudder.

"Well ..." said Sally, backtracking, "I suppose it's getting on to nightfall and I'm not one to be turning out a young girl into the dark all on her own. What will you have, miss?"

"I ... I will have," Snorri faltered as she tried hard to remember her grammar. Was it, I will have or I shall have? "I shall have a slice of your very fine barley cake and a half-pint of the Springo Special Ale, if you please."

"Springo Special, eh?" someone called out. "There's a lass after me own heart."

"Be quiet, Tom," Sally chided. "You'd best try the ordinary Springo first," she told Snorri. Sally poured out the ale into a large china mug and pushed it across the counter toward the girl. Snorri took a tentative sip and her face wrinkled in disgust. Sally was not surprised. Springo was an acquired taste and ...

    great book!!!!

    this book is very good!!!! septimus heap is a series that I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy reading. Those who have read the Inheritance series will notice some slight similarities between Septimus Heap and Spit Fyre, and the characters Eragon and Saphira.

    A fun series

    This series is often compared to Harry Potter, but I think in many ways it's much different. The only parallels that I see are that it involves a boy, who at one point is an orphan, and magic. Definitely written for a younger audience, the Septimus books have a tendency to be a little silly sometimes and the endings easily resolved. However, in contrast, Sage deftly creates an interesting world with often odd and humorous characters who have the ability to surprise the reader. The plot structures of each story vary, and, to any fantasy reader's great joy, she doesn't use the same antagonist throughout every single book. Some of the characters switch sides, and other, new bad guys emerge as the series progresses. Also, unlike many series writers, Sage will start a chain of events that last throughout several books, continuing to hook readers from book to book. She does not wrap everything up neatly, but is still able to finish a book in a way that makes the story seem complete. Then, the reader has the anticipation of discovering how some of the issues that arise in earlier books will unravel in later additions.

    Within this book specifically is a prime example of a complicated plot structure and set of characters that break the far too often tread mold of fantasy novels. The main bad guy is a Queen named Etheldredda, who is now a ghost attempting to live forever. However, another 'bad guy' of this book is her son, Marcellus Pye who kidnaps Septimus from 500 years in the past. However, in order to create three-dimensional characters, Marcellus is shown throughout the book to be kind and fiercely intelligent, winning Septimus's admiration and trust even though he doesn't want to be back in time. Far too often, the antagonists are simply evil and have nothing more to them. It certainly makes the reading more interesting when there are levels of good and evil, and not everyone has to be simply one or the other. Even Simon, who was the bad guy in the previous book, seems to be coming around because of Lucy's influence. I recommend this to all readers 9+, skewing more toward boys.

    Reviewed by Jennifer Wardrip, aka "The Genius" for TeensReadToo.com

    I have to state that it's taken me a very long time to write my review of PHYSIK, mostly because it took me such a very long time to finish the book. Although I absolutely loved MAGYK, and was nearly as impressed with FLYTE, it was much harder for me to get into the story of PHYSIK. I wasn't immediately struck by the newly introduced characters, and even some of my old favorites were, at first, acting quite different than they had originally. That being said, though, I'm glad I finally finished this third installment in the Septimus Heap saga, and can recommend it to others without feeling guilty. <BR/><BR/>The story opens with Silas Heap, father of the Heap clan, unknowingly unleashing the ghost of Queen Etheldredda, a Castle Queen who ruled long ago. Along with her spirit is also released that of her pet Aie-Aie, a rat-dog-snake hybrid that is hideous to look upon. Although Silas and his companion, Gringe, aren't first aware of what has happened, they'll soon learn that the room they unlocked would have been better left alone. <BR/><BR/>Nearly at the same time, Snorri Snorrelssen, a young North Trader, arrives at Sally Mullen's Tea and Ale House -- and can immediately sense that she's not welcome there, even if she can't understand the language that's being spoken. After weeks at sea, however, Snorri is not about to turn her back on her mission, that of following in the footsteps of her father. <BR/><BR/>Back at the Palace, Septimus Heap is putting off his studies with ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, instead indulging in his new obsession of learning all there is to know about Alchemy. He wishes to learn under the famous Alchemyst Marcellus Pye, who just so happens to be the son of the dreaded Queen Etheldredda. <BR/><BR/>All of the usual characters are back in this installment: Jenna, Nicko, Aunt Zelda, Spit Fyre, and Alther Mella, along with new ones like the above-mentioned Snorri and Marcellus Pye. Some of them act as they've always acted; some of them act in surprising ways. All of it leads up to a showdown of wits and talents and, of course, the next book in the series. <BR/><BR/>As I said, I'm glad I finally finished reading PHYSIK, as I definitely plan to read QUESTE, the fourth book. Although some readers may have trouble in the beginning, as I did, once you get into the story of Septimus and family, you'll be quite enthralled until the very end.

    Awesome book! I read this one first and it was great.

    Great humor, suspense, action, and that what-is-gonna-happen-next feeling. This book is always changing in ways you don't notice and skip over until it jumps outta the book and gets ya from behind. So watch yo back as you read this superior novel, and enjoy it. If your friend lends this book to you, you scored. Don't worry about the loan time limit, you will finish by then. This page-turner will have your fingers sore after changing pages so repeatedly. Read this book, especially if you can get it from your local library. This book is worth the time and effort. This is a must read. I highly reccomend this book to people ranging from 11-111, as it contains some serious suspense in one or two parts. My favorite characters were Alther, Septimus and Nicko. You'll love this book, and find it is one of your top ten favorite series. Have fun reading it, and enjoy!
    My top five books(just to let you know) are:
    Lord Brocktree by Brian Jacques
    Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
    Triss by Brian Jacques
    Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
    Septimus Heap Series by Angie Sage
    Also read all the rest of the Redwall books by Brian Jacques.
    Enjoy!!!!

    Agree with "Please..." !!

    This is a great book, but some people think it's bad, and that's ok. Aren't there some books you think are awful, and would you like it if some one was really rude to you about it....probably not. It took me a while to really get into it, but that happened fome with the first two, also, so I kept reading, and about a third of the way through, the cliffhangers got me. ;)

    Wow!

    Yes, simply outstanding best book in the series. I almost need to read it again I think it was so good that everyone would like to read it again and again. Fans of Magyk and Flyte will be delighted to the sequel to the Septimus's story. Thrilling and highly detailed, some passages were sad some were funny and some were plain just creepy. The best part in the book is when Spit Fire, a Dragon hatched by Septimus, learns to spit fire (laughs) Because Jenna, the queen, tries to find Septimus, her older brother,any chants this spell to Spit Fire and says , ¿ Faithful dragon seek the one whom you be imprinted on let this seek show your mind FIND!!!!¿ and they set on a journey to find Septimus. Will they make it thats for you to find out. I would highly recommend this book to any one who read Flyte or Magyk. P.S when taming a dragon to breath fire don't do it near a house.
