Physik: Septimus Heap, Book 3 – Angie Sage

physik

When Silas Heap un-Seals a forgotten room in the Palace, he releases the ghost of a Queen who lived five hundred years earlier. Queen Etheldredda is as awful in death as she was in life, and she’s still up to no good. Her diabolical plan to give herself everlasting life requires Jenna’s compliance, Septimus’s disappearance, and the talents of her son, Marcellus Pye, a famous Alchemist and Physician. And if Queen Etheldredda’s plot involves Jenna and Septimus, then it will surely involve Nicko, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, Beetle, Stanley, Sarah, Silas, Spit Fyre, and Aunt Zelda.

This book did not read as well for me as the first two did.  Though Queen Etheldredda is a worthy opponent (she’s quite creepy), the plot seemed too confusing or unbelievable sometimes.  I do love Spit Fyre, Stanley, Alther Mella and most of the other characters, though, and that kept me going.  Let me know what you think.     – Jessica, Teen Librarian
