What a cool trailer. Great to encourage middle/older readers with a bit of magic and mayhem. I thoroughly enjoyed Angie Sage’s earlier Araminta Spook series. In fact I even have a little Araminta doll sitting in a basket on my desk.
While it has been suggested that readers read the Septimus Heap series before reading the new Pathfinder series, it isn’t essential. So briefly this is the blurb.
Tod has grown up a PathFinder, one of an ancient seafaring tribe. Her mother, who died when Tod was young, had a very different history. She was from a mysterious magykal desert-dwelling family. When Tod’s father disappears she is not only alone, but soon finds herself swept into the path of an evil sorcerer. Now Tod must choose which of her pasts will help her to survive: PathFinder or Magician. Magyk will allow her to fight like with like, but her PathFinder heritage gives Tod something special – the edge.

Angie Sage’s new book combines breathtaking action with fabulous plotting. The characters are instantly engaging, the tension is relentless and Angie’s superlative storytelling weaves the threads seamlessly together for an utterly satisfying read.”
I know a group of year sixes who loved Septimus Heap so this is on the list of books to buy for school this year. And with a trailer like this one, who wouldn’t want to read it?
