In PathFinder, readers journeyed with Alice TodHunter Moon, a young PathFinder who found her way to the Castle seven years after the events of the original Septimus Heap series.
Now it’s two months later and Alice is settled into her new life in the Castle. Being Apprentice to ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap is tricky—there’s loads of new Magyk to learn—but at least she’s mastered the Unseen charm.
She’s lucky she has, too—that Unseen will come in handy when she sets out with friends Oskar and Ferdie on a perilous journey to retrieve the Egg of the Orm from the Desert of the Singing Sands. If they don’t reach the Egg before it hatches, the new baby Orm could imprint on the evil sorcerer Oraton-Marr, giving him unlimited Magyk to do with what he wishes….
Bursting with humorous and poignant moments, SandRider celebrates the satisfaction of taking charge of one’s path in life—unexpected adventures and all.
Perfect for anyone who can’t get enough of the world of Septimus Heap!

The Magykal World of TodHunter Moon
by Angie Sage
Release date: 14.10.2014
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.
TodHunter Moon: Book One

ON SALE: 10/14/2014
The first book in a new arc in the Septimus Heap series!
When Alice TodHunter Moon—who insists on being called Tod—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 bestselling Septimus Heap series, and full of Angie Sage’s characteristic humor and heart, PathFinder celebrates the joy of discovering one’s own personal Magyk, and of choosing the path that lets that Magyk flourish and grow.

Well it’s snowing on the blogsite now, so it must be Christmas! Hope you all have a great time over the holidays and get a chance to read lots of good things. That’s what I love about time off the best – it’s reading time.
We are nearly into 2014 which means it will soon be time for the re-release in the UK of ARAMINTA SPOOK books I and 2: MY HAUNTED HOUSE and THE SWORD IN THE GROTTO.
It’s so great to have Minty back out there again and this year a new Araminta Spook/Spookie book will finally appear: GARGOYLE HALL on June 6th. Yes – I got some time to write it at last. The good news is that GARGOYLE HALL will be published in the USA too, by Bloomsbury US, which is great.
TODHUNTER MOON book two is coming into existence now, I am about a quarter of the way through and beginning to get a feel for how the story is going. And really enjoying writing about a tortoise… (an Apothercary tortoise, for all who are wondering).
I’m also doing short story number 1 as a bridge between FYRE and TODHUNTER MOON for all diehard Sep fans. And if we get some snow I’m going to make a snowman…
Have fun this holiday and here’s wishing you all a very Happy Christmas indeed!

When Araminta throws cold water over her best friend’s mum to disperse a crowd of panicked bats, it’s decided Araminta has been ‘helpful’ one too many times, and she is packed off to boarding school. On arrival, Araminta is surprised to discover that Gargoyle Hall makes her home, Spook House, seems positively cosy. Strange moans and clanks echo down the corridors and the two head girls are equally creepy. Most of the other pupils have been scared away, but Araminta senses that something – or someone – is behind the menace.
With the help of best friend Wanda and Uncle Drac’s prize bat, she is going to do something about it!
To be released: June 2014 (UK)
