Physik is the third book in the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage. Take a look at Kidzworld's book review for more information.

Author:
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 Artifacts

In 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.

    In my opinion, cursing in general is pretty tasteless. It's not exactly a behavior to admire.  However, in regards to the question, I don't think people who are 13 and under should be cursing. Not to sound condescending to those who are younger than me, but my reasoning is, many people who are in that particular age group don't fully comprehend the weight expletives carry.  Here is an example: A mother is out running errands in heavy traffic. Her 6 year old son is seated in the back of the car.  As she's about to make a turn, another vehicle cuts her off. Irritated, she curses the offender under her breath, unaware that her son has heard her. Later, while in a check-out line at a supermarket, her son, growing restless, stomps his foot and yells the same curse. The six year old didn't understand what he was saying, he was repeating what he'd heard from his mother. He didn't understand that the word was inappropriate and potentially offensive.  The average 13 year old (or even a 10 year old, for that matter), however, would understand that it was inappropriate and that it was offensive.

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are all kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But let's take a looksie back in the past, shall we? In some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;     Amen to that!
