Publisher's Summary

When Alice TodHunter Moon was five years old, she saw a beautiful golden Dragon Boat fly over her PathFinder village. She knew at once that the boat was Magykal.

That was years ago, before her mother died, her father disappeared at sea, and the Garmin took her best friend, Ferdie.

Now it's up to Tod and Ferdie's brother, Oskar, to rescue Ferdie from the Garmins' keeper, the malevolent Lady. Their journey takes them to the Castle, where they receive help from ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap and ex-ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand.

But the Lady's brother, the Darke sorcerer Oraton-Marr, has a plan that will put everyone Tod holds dear in danger. To save her people, Tod must embrace her identity as a PathFinder and navigate the Ancient Ways, mysterious Magykal paths leading to unfamiliar - and sometimes dangerous - lands.

Taking place seven years after the story arc of the original best-selling Septimus Heap series, PathFinder celebrates the joy of discovering one's own personal Magyk and of choosing the path that lets that Magyk flourish and grow.

    "Gerard Doyle would have been better"

    Would have preferred Gerard Doyle to read this as he did the last series. He didna better job in my opinion. but the story is great as expected.

    Story
    "Fun listen for Septimus fans, don't expect a wow."
    Would you recommend PathFinder to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you are a fan of Septimus, this is a fun book to listen to. I would not recommend starting with this series. There are too many characters (some new, most old) and it is difficult to attach affections to any one of them.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    New narrator for a new series, difficult for a fan of the 1st series and performances. Accents are good, but there is not as much excitement generated.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did not have trouble pausing, but found myself coming back to here about what Septimus was up to.

    "Liked it"

    I have to say the story was interesting. I prefer the narrator from the Septimus Heap series. Not sure if I'll get the second book.

    "Great Listen"

    Very happy to hear another great tale from Angie Sage, and even happier that this new series includes our old friends from the Septimus Heap series. The narrator doesn't really nail the imperious quality of Marcia from the original, but that's a small thing. On to the next book!

    Story
    "I miss Gerard...."
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nicola Barber?

    I would have preferred Gerard Doyle. He never called Marcia, Marsha! I understand a mistake once or twice but she keeps going back and forth with it. She has a great voice, and her reading is fluent but I just listened to all 7 Septimus Heap books back to back and now I have to shake their old voices out of my head for their new ones. Like when they replace an actor in a show, takes a while to a just too!


    Was PathFinder worth the listening time?

    The story is great and I look forward to the rest of them.

    "Narrator is a new favourite for me"

    Every character had a recognizable and distinct voice and accent. Lovely storytelling! I am looking forward to listening to more.

    Story
    "Okay start and lots of potential"
    If you’ve listened to books by Angie Sage before, how does this one compare?

    I'd say this is the weakest of the books I've read in the Septimus Heap series, with regard to transition and clarity. I read the first series, one right after the other, and got more and more invested in the characters. I liked each book better than the previous one, so when that series ended and this one began I had great hopes; jumping right into this book. I don't really know what I expected, but it took me a while (more than half the book) before figuring out who everyone was, and what was going on (this was a bit of a disappointment that I can't quite resolve).

    That said, I think (I hope) this series will be different enough to carry on a new story line, and the characters (both new and old) have changed enough that I am willing to try book 2
