Product description

Nicko and Snorri are trapped in the long-ago past, and now Septimus faces a perilous Queste to find them. Everyone at the Castle knows their chances of coming back are slim. Then Septimus, aided by Alchemist Marcellus Pye, learns of a place where all time meets: the House of Foryx. It could be a chance to save his friends – except that no other apprentice has ever survived such a mission! Meanwhile, Simon Heap has taken on a new apprentice: Merrin Meredith, Septimus’s arch-enemy! With the help of a frightening creature called a Thing, Merrin plans to reclaim the identity he used to have… that of Septimus Heap!

“Full of hurtle-paced humour.” Telegraph
