In PathFinder, readers journeyed with Alice TodHunter Moon, a young PathFinder who found her way to the Castle seven years after the events of the original Septimus Heap series.
Now it’s two months later and Alice is settled into her new life in the Castle. Being Apprentice to ExtraOrdinary Wizard Septimus Heap is tricky—there’s loads of new Magyk to learn—but at least she’s mastered the Unseen charm.
She’s lucky she has, too—that Unseen will come in handy when she sets out with friends Oskar and Ferdie on a perilous journey to retrieve the Egg of the Orm from the Desert of the Singing Sands. If they don’t reach the Egg before it hatches, the new baby Orm could imprint on the evil sorcerer Oraton-Marr, giving him unlimited Magyk to do with what he wishes….
Bursting with humorous and poignant moments, SandRider celebrates the satisfaction of taking charge of one’s path in life—unexpected adventures and all.
Perfect for anyone who can’t get enough of the world of Septimus Heap!

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
I loved this this book. It was very good and kept me hooked.
My favorite character was Tod or Alice, if you want to call her by her formal name. I think that you will love TodHunter and the Tribe of Three. Tod is a pathfinder as well! Alice is also kind and is serious about her job.
My favorite part is when the Orm hatches because its such a beautiful moment I imagine in my mind.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes the Septimus Heap books, fantasy and adventures!
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 to 14.
