The Lovereading4Kids comment
A story of sorcerers, wizards, dragons and, of course, Magyk, Sandrider, the second book in Angie Sage’s Todhunter Moon series, is another enthralling piece of storytelling from an author whose invention never flags. Apprentice wizard Tod has an important task: she must find the Egg of the Orm, and before it hatches. That means a race against the clock – against the egg-timer to be really precise – and a dangerous journey to the Desert of the Singing Sands. The plot moves at a cracking pace, and the worlds and characters Sage conjures up make for fascinating reading. This series is a must-read for young fantasy fans, and indeed for anyone who likes their adventures to be full of twists, surprises and excitement. ~ Andrea Reece
A Piece of Passion from her editor Zoe Griffiths: Angie Sage is a name we all know and love. Angie has the most wondrous talent for storytelling. There is a gorgeous richness to her words and reading her books makes you feel like you are being wrapped up in a warm blanket and given the most delicious mug of hot chocolate to savour. Angie truly is a master of her art and you can be safe in the knowledge that in any of her books there will be characters you wish you knew in real life, a fantastically exciting keep-you-on-the-edge-your-seat plot, and the most breath-taking action. Angie knows how to write a page turner and to keep her readers hooked, and I promise that by the end of her latest triumph, SandRider, you will have enjoyed every second of the journey.
Set in the same glorious world as Angie’s bestselling creation, Septimus Heap, SandRider is a must read for all fantasy fans, or anyone who loves books about Magyk, bravery and friendship. I know you won’t be disappointed when you pick it up and I also know you won’t be able to put it down again once you’ve turned that first page. Enjoy the Magyk that lies within…
