Publisher's Summary

It's been two months since Alice TodHunter Moon - who insists on being called Tod - left her home in the seaside PathFinder village to pursue a life of Magyk in the Castle. Being Apprentice to ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap is tricky, though - there's loads of new Magyk to learn, and she dearly misses her friends, Oskar and Ferdie. But at least she's mastered the UnSeen Charm.

She's lucky she has, too - that UnSeen will come in handy when she sets out with Oskar and Ferdie on a perilous journey to retrieve the Egg of the Orm from the Desert of the Singing Sands. If they don't reach the Egg before it hatches, the new baby Orm could imprint on the evil sorcerer Oraton-Marr, giving him unlimited Magyk to do with what he wishes....

Bursting with humorous and poignant moments, SandRider celebrates the satisfaction of taking charge of one's path in life - unexpected adventures and all.

Needs editing

The narrator didn’t seem to know much about the characters, which is surprising since she did the previous book. She made young characters sound ancient. Somehow, the editing also missed her breaths so you get random gasps of air.

Overall, the book is lovely as always.

Inconsistent voices and pronunciation

I truly enjoyed the story. I also think the series is very well written and very entertaining. Unfortunately the narrator did not listen to the previous books in the series. She didn't understand how things were pronounced and it really bothered me that she kept getting characters names wrong. I did like the fact that the new characters had different accents from the previous characters but once again I was not very thrilled with the narration.

Questions

Do not try to read this book without reading PathFinder first.

What is Lapis Lazuli? Sage gives it her unique twist, linking it to power (just like alchemy was linked to greed). How do sleds operate with no regard to elevation and gravity? Once you know the answer, you will wonder why the runners need to be polished. If you have ever hurtled down a ski slope, you may wonder how Tod could notice so many minute details as she raced along.
Why do characters like the "clicking" monsters (PathFinder) and age-mate apprentice bullies (SandRider and StarChaser) only appear in the story when something dastardly needs to happen?
How did so many world-spanning transport systems get built?
Magical beings seem to know exactly where to go, so why does Jim Knee need a guide?
It is interesting to watch the mood-swings or plot-swings of Kaznim, Marissa, Jim Knee, and even Septimus. They serve to keep the story moving along. The Tribe of Three also keeps things going by insisting that they know better than anyone else what needs to be done.

Great balance of characters!

The story was great. I️ like that throughout the story it was not predictable and neither was the ending. She is doing a great job of focusing the story on the apprentice while appropriately balancing the roles of the old characters that we know and love.

Angie Sage added to the great world of Septimus Heap. Tod has brought a great set of characters to the castle and wizard tower.

The reader keeps gasping...

I love Angie Sage's books. However, the reader of these keeps gasping while reading, like she needs to take a deep breath. It's grating.
