I obviously forgot to put up a review for this book. This is the fourth book in the Septimus Heap series I’ve read. My memory of it is rather vague as I read it some time ago, but from what I remember I felt it was better than its predecessor, Physik. Having said that, it wasn’t a complete return to the form of the earlier books.
That’s not to say that the book isn’t enjoyable, it’s still a good read filled with some interesting ideas. It still seems to meander around and then finish a bit too abruptly though. I also think that the series lacks a good strong villain.
