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.

Epic and Beyond Delightful

It feels like returning to dear friends in getting to reconnect with the Heap tribe and other castle inhabitants. Exciting at every corner and delightful new characters. I can’t wait to re-read! I thought it might be disappointing to be in the same world as the Heaps but not hear much about them with it being a new series - but they are present and active and it’s so wonderful to get to engage with them in their grown up years. Love love love this book and the whole series!

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.

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!

not "nah" enough to keep me from reading more

One can read this without having read Septimus Heap, but knowing the backstory adds flavor. New characters in this iteration sometimes seem more true to their age - impetuous (Why did you do that?). Continuing characters are role-models of virtue. And in standard fantasy format, being a parent is not a good career path - either early exit by death or relegation to irrelevance. Storyline plods as Alice learns that she is central to fighting an inexplicably evil entity. I think Nicola Berber does a fine job of narrating. Sage's writing style and Barber's voice communicate well. I don't need someone attempting to be a full-cast rendition.

Pathfinder The Movie 🎬

Incredible backup to Septimus Heap series. The characters and storylines are wonderful without missing a step. I can't wait for the next book. These stories deserve a movie deal for all ages. Thank you, Angie Sage!

Shane Good- about Gerard Doyle

PathFinder was amazing and very action packed and fun. The narrator was not as good and I wish the narrator was Gerard Doyle was doing it like the other series Septimus Heap but the PathFinder
