The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of our Books of the Year 2015 - August 2015 Book of the Month Angie Sage is best known for her wonderful series about apprentice wizard Septimus Heap. Septimus makes an appearance in her new Pathfinder series, though it has a brand new and very different central character. Tod’s happy life with her father in a little fishing village is interrupted when he is lost at sea. Tod must live with her thoroughly unpleasant aunt until something even nastier arrives – the terrifying Garmin. Soon Tod is embarked on a dangerous adventure to rescue her father and defeat a Darke Sorceror. Fortunately, she has some Magyk to help her! Sage’s plotting is superb, her fantasy worlds vividly and inventively described, and her characters are true originals too. Over 300 pages this is satisfyingly long, reading it will be a happy as well as exciting experience. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Pathfinder A Todhunter Moon Adventure by Angie Sage

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.
