Publisher's 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.

    "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.

    Yes - I love the reader's voice and expressions through out the story.

    I couldn't stop listening - I just finished and am downloading the next book now!

    "Entertaining but too many unanswered questions!"

    I love this series, each chapter leaves me wanting to go on to the next. Has kept me up all night with this one because I feel like the characters are family. But Angie let me down on this one.

    I feel that there were too many unanswered questions lingering in the air, and the final chapter seems a bit like an after thought.

    I can't wait to hear the next in the series...

    "Very enjoyable & had me glued to my headphones"

    This is the 4th novel in the series and I tell you I am truly enjoying myself. The story is so interesting that at times, I can't put my audio book down and listen late at night when I should be in bed. I highly recommend this series for anyone who is interested in Magical Fantasy storylines.

    "Best in this series"

    Sometimes books in a series are never as good as the first one, but I thoroughly enjoyed "Queste". I think this is the best so far.

    I was sorry to come to the end.

    "Fascinating!"

    One of my two favorite books in this series. This one is as good as Magyk. Story is well structured, has some humors within, and every chapter is full of new excitement. Personally, I believe that this one is far more better than Physik.

    "Queste"

    I think that this book is very interesting and adventurous because it is very active in its story and doesn't dordle in the beggining.
    If you like adventure and fantasy then you will probably love this book.
    So please try this book if you think it sounds good, and don't just sit around thinking "it's to expensive, it's to expensive, it's to expensive'.

    "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.

    "Excellent listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Queste the most enjoyable?

    It's quite difficult for a writer to keep not only the ideas, plot lines and character play going in only one book, however, Angie Sage brings it together in all of the Septimus Heap books. The humour and satire brought to this book is exaggerated all the more by the performer narrating the story... Very good character depiction made me laugh all the way through.
