Publisher's Summary

There's trouble at the Castle, and it's all because Merrin Meredith has returned with Darke plans for Septimus. More trouble awaits Septimus and Jenna in the form of Tertius Fume, the ghost of the very first Chief Hermetic Scribe, who is determined to send Septimus on a deadly Queste.

Septimus and Jenna have other plans, however. They are headed for the mysterious House of Foryx, a place where all Time meets and the place where they fervently hope they will be able to find Nicko and Snorri, who were trapped back in time in physik. But how will Septimus escape the Queste?

Queste, like all the books in the Septimus Heap series, is filled with nonstop action, humor, and fantastical adventure, as Septimus continues his journey of Magykal self-discovery.

Listening to it over and over again

I bought the Septimus Heap audiobooks (4 of them so far) for son (age 5). And as always I listen to them first to make sure they aren't too scary for him (they're not). And this time I find MYSELF listening to them over and over again. LOL Every time I get to the end of Queste, I don't want to stop listening, so I just start at the beginning again! Gerhard Doyle is a wonderful narrator and the books are beautifully written, especially for those who like dreaming about life in a land with wizards and dragons. The characters are very real and again Gerhard Doyle does amazing voices for them. I love the EOW :-)

Great Book & 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) I have enjoyed the entire series and this book was not a disappointment. I just wish there were more books in the series. These books will get listened to time and again.

I love how the author is able to tie in all these small details and make them affect the other characters in ways I wasn't expecting. it's my favorite of the series so far!

Abrupt ending.

It was entertaining but it ended too abruptly. I was looking for some closure to the story of Niko and Snorri existing in another time for 500 years. Sadly, it never came. Everyone just hugged Marcia, said hi to Sara and then *bam* some back story for minor characters.

Patience

This continuation chapter of the Heap Tale demands attention, but, be patient; the first third of the book does not seem to have anything to do with the title. Readers must keep track of the large cast of characters and their parallel stories. Eventually there will be a quest, although I would not call it riveting; it is more comedic, without the laughs,

Great performer

Gerard Doyle is a pleasure to listen to! He really makes the characters come alive and carries their personas throughout the series. I haven’t looked ahead, but I hope he finishes out the series. Also, I would seek out other books he reads just for his talent. As for the story - it’s a wonderful adventure!

A bit of fun and fantasy

Angie Sage has written these books for children, but as an adult I find my own enjoyment in the way these books are written, they are an excellent bit of diversion when I have just read something a bit heavier, and I can't wait to listen to them again when my grandchild is a little older.
