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.

wonderful!

The 4th great book in a wonderful series, enjoyed by all my family, and so sorry when we finished it. I do hope Angie Sage will be writing some more!!! Highly recommended, but listen to the others in the series first or you will miss out.

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.

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.

Amazing Series

I absolutely love this book, and the series at represents. it was the first time I came in contact with the writings of Angie sage, and if it came a passion to follow the adventures of Septimus Heap. Honestly the series reminded me of Harry Potter, only without being any type of knock off or copycat. The series characters are well fought out and brought to life, and septimus's transition from boy 412 to apprentice is what of my favorite scenes, even though it takes much of the book to occur. given that this is written in a different world, it is interesting how the port, the marshes, and the wizard tower all come to life in your mind as you read or listen. I own all of the books in physical print, and they are exceptional in the different sizing and the spelling which is unique and artistic. for the audiobook, I could not imagine a better fit. I absolutely love the narrator's voice and his capability to bring each character to life regardless of gender. He is an exceptional narrator.
