This book takes you through time and on queste that you can get lost in. The queste is like no other that I have read. You go through times that you ae almost jumping up and down, bitting your nails, and sreaming because it's so thrilling and mysterious that it feels like you can't get to the answer quick enough. And when you get there you feel like it was worth the nail bitting, screaming and jumping up and down.

I really enjoyed this book! The characters all seemed very real there was not a dull moment in the book. I had trouble putting it down! The story was written in such a way that it sounds like it really happened and each setting painted a vivid picture in my mind. It was exactly as I would have imagined it. I think Queste is a great book for children 11-13 as the plot might be a little confusing to younger children. Overall, Queste was a great read and the rest of the series just keeps on getting better and better......

This book is for all fantasy lovers. They will find it very enjoyable, even though it is a bit slow at times. Queste is a book for all ages, not just for teens. Im 11 and thought it was pretty cool. (WARNING: THIS BOOK MAY NOT MAKE SENSE IF YOU DID NOT READ THE OTHER BOOKS)

I have really enjoyed reading these books. I like sci-fi fantasy books and have read Jordan's Wheel of Time and many other series including Harry Potter. This is a simple yet interesting 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. As each book passes, more and more interested elements reveal themselves about the world that Angie Sage has created. I love the concept of the House of Foryx, the Witch's Way, the Queste and how it was initially intended to work, but that it was distorted from its original purpose. Also, Hotep-Ra showing up in the House of Foryx was another great twist that I didn't see coming. On a literary note, Sage has proven to have a keen ability to continue to evolve her characters from story to story in a way that's not only enticing to readers, but also shows a larger character arc that makes the characters seem very palatable. I could imagine myself in this world, interacting with these magical people. Septimus and Jenna especially wrestle with many internal issues that often mirror the difficult circumstances that happen around them. It's brave of Sage to show that the two main protagonists can make the wrong decisions, which lead to catastrophic things happening in not only their lives, but the lives of everyone else around them as well. Even throughout books four and five, Jenna still struggles over the fact that her decision to lead Septimus into the room with the two-way mirror in book three has split her family apart. I recommend all the books in this series to readers 9+. -Lindsey Miller,

In this newest edition of a much loved saga of a boy wizard apprentice struggling to find himself in a Magykal world, we see each character going to a new and deeper level as the main cast progresses in age and wisdom. The story begins with Merrin Meredith, alias Daniel Hunter, alias Septimus Heap, trying to send Septimus on the deadly Queste from which no ExtraOrdinary Apprentice has ever returned. He enlists the help of " Old Goat-Face" Tertius Fume, first Chief Hermetic Scribe, to do this. Of course, if someone is trying to put Sep in harms way, Jenna, Beetle, Sarah, Silas, Alther, and Marcia will be there to back him up! Another tale of family, friendship, and Magyk written by masterful Angie Sage. I liked how much the three characters sent to The House of Foryx matured and used present and past learnings to assist them. I was not impressed by the fact that Sage tried to keep Seps Questing status hush-hush until Chapter 36. (Although it is revealed in passing in 28) I enjoyed the concept of a Siege and the Gathering. This book was sweet and funny, and I reccomend it to all new and established fans of Seps adventures.

Queste, the forth book in the Septimus Heap Series, continues where book three left off. The story is exceptional and just plain entertaining for readers of all ages. I can't wait for book five to continue the fun.

I have found all the books (so far) of Septimus Heap (by Angie Sage) to be engaging and entertaining. Though I sometimes pre-guess what is to be revealed, that does not diminish but rather enhances the thrill of the story. Though intended for young readers, I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good story (I'm 46...)

Have you ever been on a Queste? If not just wonder, the adventures begin when you open this book. From the palace, to the forest, and to the house of Forx, adventures lie everywhere. .In this epic journey far a way to a place where all times meet. Septimus Heap travels along with his sister Jenna, and his best friend Beetle, but what lies ahead? A mixture of witches, magic, and enchantment, this book will never leave your hands until your finished. This is the best book ever!
