Queste by Angie Sage was really an excellent book. I laughed for most of it, even parts most people wouldn't have found funny. I really thought the plot was wonderful and the underlying themes were startling when you had forgotten about them, but really clever. I loved the characters, and as the fourth book in the Septimus Heap series you really seem to know the characters. Again the plot was great and I wouldn't just suggest this to a friend, I'd make them read it.
