Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

For a book about people called PathFinders, this oddly meanders a lot; it lacks a clear structure and objective for its heroic characters until close to the end. Which can be pretty hard on the reader, especially those not fully engaged in the Septimus Heap world already (this reviewer read the first four Septimus Heap books and still got a little lost).

If readers have read all previous books and are loyal fans, they'll really like Tod regardless of story structure problems. She's a brave tomboy character who has some pretty cool skills to contribute if she decides to study magic.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
