Overview

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 bestselling 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.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
08/01/2014
Gr 5 Up—This companion to the series set seven years later, tells the story of Pathfinder Alice TodHunter Moon (Tod). It opens with her first MidSummer Circle, when the 12-year-old and the other Pathfinders of age revel in their legacy—a story told by Dan, Tod's father and leader of the Pathfinders. Tragedy soon follows when he disappears while fishing, and she is forced to live with her wicked Aunt Mitza, who soon plans to get rid of Tod. Luckily, her friend Oskar alerts her and helps her escape, which is when the real adventure begins. A dizzying number of characters brings this tale across its 12 parts. Kidnappings, Darke Magyk, secret passages, sailing ships, message rats, and creatures of all sorts pack the pages, taking readers along. Not surprisingly, all of the characters meet up by means of hubs that slip time and space and reveal Tod's purpose. Fans of the first series will certainly delight as characters familiar and new go on new adventures and reveal new mythologies.—Stacy Dillon, LREI, New York City
