When Silas Heap unseals a forgotten room in the palace, he releases the ghost of a queen who lived five hundred years earlier.

Queen Etheldredda is as awful in death as she was in life, and she’s still up to no good. Her diabolical plan to give herself everlasting life requires Jenna’s compliance, Septimus’ disappearance, and the talents of her son, Marcellus Pye, a famous alchemist and physician. And if Queen Etheldredda’s plot involves Jenna and Septimus, then it will surely involve Nicko, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, Beetle, Stanley, Sarah, Silas, Spit Fyre, Aunt Zelda, and all of the other wacky, wonderful characters that made Magyk and Flyte so memorable.

With heart-stopping action and a dash of humor, Angie Sage continues the fantastical journey of Septimus Heap.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Readers will quickly warm up to the stars of the book, sketched with liberal doses of humor, and all back in top form. Chapters alternate points of view, keeping suspense high, while lots of vivid details portray a palace life humming with Magyk. Fans of the series will enjoy the secrets that are revealed as Physik delves deeper into the labyrinthine palace walls and will eagerly await the next installment.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Readers [will] savor the quirky storytelling, marked by a sprawling, omniscient purview and plenty of entertaining tangents. With entries as strong as this one, Sage’s efforts will continue to stand strong within the crowded young-wizard niche.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lianne | 2/15/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 2/7/2014

    " So far I found this story to be the slowest beginning. I was 2/3 of the way in before I felt the set up really finished. Good ending saved the star review. I'll probably take a bit of a break before I read the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 2/5/2014

    " I have nothing to say that can describe how much I love the Septimus Heap series, all I can say is if you read the books before this (and you better have, who reads the third book in a series first?) then you definitely need to read Physik. If you read the first two books and didn't really like it, well I still think you should give it a shot. You never know, maybe you'll suddenly start liking the series halfway through, that's happened to me a couple times. "

    " Not my favorite of the series...this one was hard for me to follow--I kept having to go back and re-read parts of the book to understand what was going on. Plus, trying to follow the conversations that took place 500 years ago was difficult as well. I hope the 4th one is better :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arman | 6/18/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brownie | 6/14/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherry | 5/18/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hikari | 5/1/2011

    " I don't like this book as much as the other Septimus Heap books. I don't like the story that they got trapped in another time. And as for the "accent" of Marcellus Pye and Princess Esmeralda - it gave me the head ache! I can't understand them. :))) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Austin | 4/27/2011

    " In this book, Septimus is aligned with a side of himself that he has only met once before. But he does not become acquainted with this skill willingly. It is the kidnapping done by Marcellus Pye, that does it. "
