Horn Book Review

Just as Septimus is learning about the dark side of magic during his wizarding apprenticeship, a figure from his past returns to destroy his world. Though fans of the series may enjoy seeing so many of the characters together, their sheer number occasionally slows the pacing and hinders character development. Nevertheless, the story is well plotted. (c) Copyright 2011. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
