Physik is the third book in the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage. Take a look at Kidzworlds book review for more information.
Septimus Heap and the rest of the Heap family are in for more magic, intrigue and adventure with the latest book in Angie Sage's fantasy series. Find out if Physik lives up to the first two books with Kidzworld's book review!
Ancient ArtifactsIn the last Septimus Heap book, Septimus was forced to battle his older brother Simon to save his younger sister Jenna (who's also the princess and future queen!). While he managed to defeat the Darke powers of Simon and his master, the wizard DomDaniel, Septimus faces new evil powers in Physik. A centuries-old ghost has been accidentally released from her tomb and is determined to rule the Castle once again - no matter who she has to destroy in the process!
Through the Looking Glass
Septimus may be an up-and-coming powerful wizard, but he's also just a kid who likes adventure and mystery. When his sister offers to show him a magical Looking Glass in her private Queen's Room, Septimus jumps at the chance. Little does he know, he won't be coming back! When the two siblings arrive to look at the mirror, Septimus is pulled through by the infamous alchemist Marcellus Pye. Septimus finds himself taken back 500 years in time. Jenna tries to pull her brother back, but is left with nothing more than his boots!
Ding, Dong the Witch is Dead
Despite being dead for hundreds of years, the nasty Queen Etheldredda is back in the world of the living and she has a lot more powers than most ordinary ghosts. She is the one responsible for Septimus' mysterious disappearance and since her arrival, a Sicknesse has started to plague the Castle. Jenna needs to find a way through the Looking Glass so she can save her brother - if she doesn't, life as they all know it could be changed forever.
The Bottom Line
Along with all your beloved Septimus Heap characters, there are a few new faces in Physik. Snorri Snorrelson is a trader from the North who has the ability to see ghosts. She has come to the Castle in search of her dad, but quickly finds herself traveling back in time with Jenna and Nicko to battle the Queen and Marcellus Pye. Physik carries on all the page-turning adventure of the previous Septimus Heap books and is a must-read this summer for all fantasy fans! There's quite the cliff-hanger of an ending, so be prepared for at least one more book from Angie Sage in this series.
