Author Angie Sage Unveils Official Title, Cover & Synopsis of TodHunter Moon Book #1

As an exciting extension to the Magykal universe created by Angie Sage in the famous Septimus Heap sesries, Todhunter Moon, who was a secondary character back then, takes the spotlight in a new series of his own. So don't worry if you still have some Septimus Heap pangs, because this spin-off series is definitely for you.

And just so you know, the title has been revealed as TodHunter Moon: PathFinder, and is marketed over Amazon as Septimus Heap: TodHunter Moon, Book One: PathFinder. And you can see below the final cover of the first book in the series. Another good thing to be excited with is that illustrator Mark Zug, who did all the illustrations in the Septimus Heap series, is back.

Check out the cover of TodHunter Moon: PathFinder by Angie Sage.

Septimus Head, TodHunter Moon: PathFinder by Angie Sage


When Alice TodHunter Moon—who insists on being called Tod—was five years old, she saw a beautiful golden dragon boat fly over her PathFinder village. She knew at once that the boat was Magykal.

That was years ago, before her mother died, her father disappeared at sea, and the Garmin took her best friend, Ferdie.

Now it’s up to Tod and Ferdie’s brother Oskar to rescue Ferdie from the Garmins’ keeper, the malevolent Lady. Their journey takes them to the Castle, where they receive help from ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap and Ex-ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand.

But the Lady’s brother, the Darke Sorcerer Oraton-Marr, has a plan that will put everyone Tod holds dear in danger. To save her people, Tod must embrace her identity as a PathFinder and navigate the Ancient Ways—mysterious Magykal paths leading to unfamiliar—and sometimes dangerous—lands.

Taking place seven years after the story arc of the original bestselling Septimus Heap series, and full of Angie Sage’s characteristic humor and heart, PathFinder celebrates the joy of discovering one’s own personal Magyk, and of choosing the path that lets that Magyk flourish and grow.

TodHunter Moon: PathFinder by Angie Sage will hit bookstores on October 14, 2014 under Katherine Tegen Books.
