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.

    "Great book"

    Narrator spoke too slowly so I had to speed up the reading of the story. The story was great though and I can't wait for the next one.

    "still good"

    I enjoyed this book as much as the first, at times it gets confusing because there are soo many characters it's hard to keep up with each one and what their goals are. I do like that at the end they go over most of the main characters and tell you kind of what is going on with them and it kind of gives you an idea of where that they will be doing in the next book.

    "Not as good as the others, disappointed."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The last half was very lacking. It felt rushed and unfinished. Fragmented.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Syren.. number five in the series. I hope it is as good as 1,2 & 3.


    Could you see Queste being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not without a rewrite and things tied together better.

    "Great Reading & Listening Adventure"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Queste?

    In the place where all time converges. I thought it was interesting how problems were solved, creative as always. I also could picture Neeko getting anxious and possibly making a hasty decision. It was also how the story converged at this point


    Any additional comments?

    The books in this series keep getting better. The kids all gain a more mature perspective, as if they too are growing up; and the character development keeps getting richer. Love it

    "Excellent Narration!"

    On to the next one. This series saved me from poorly thought out stories and is cleansing my palate for 2015 .

    "HP fans may well enjoy Septimus Heap"

    This isn't the strongest book of the series, but moves the story along quite well and continues to develop the many characters and storylines. It's not on the same level as Rowling's or Flanagan's writing, but is well done and enjoyable. While there are some truly "bad guys" I am glad Sage chose to inject some self correction into Simon's character as he matures. Sage is an imaginative storyteller, and the narration is very well done.

    "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.
