Septimus Heap Book III: Physik by Angie Sage
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is way more engaging than the first two books! :)
The plot, quest for eternal life, is perhaps the common denominator of all fantasy/magic books. But Physik made it unique by incorporating time travel through pairs of glasses, a Spirit Seer with a pet cat that transforms into a panther by night, a young dragon with a very good appetite, and a single-toothed creature that inflicts the Sicknesse, and many more. :)
I also liked the sort of old English language that was used to further emphasize the mood of 500-years-ago. :)
"Now 'tis Despoiled," Marcellus sighed. "But the Hour is against us. It must be bound as it stands. 'Twill show that, tho' Man may strive for Perfection, he will Ever fall short. 'Tis the way of the Worlde. But a few Spottes of Ink will not divert my Purpose."
