Publisher Comments:

In this fifth book in the Magykal series, Septimus ends up on a captivatingly beautiful island, one of seven set in a sparkling sea. He's stranded there with his badly injured dragon, Spit Fyre, along with Jenna and Beetle. There are some strange things about the island, including a Magykal girl named Syrah, a cat-shaped lighthouse that has lost its Light, and an eerie presence that sings to Septimus—can he escape the persistent call?

Trouble is also brewing for Lucy and Wolf Boy, who have become entangled with some nefarious sailors at sea, and for Milo Banda, Jenna's father, who is harboring a mysterious treasure chest in his ship's hold.

Charismatic storyteller Angie Sage continues Septimus Heap's Magykal journey with more laugh-out-loud adventures, more enchanting charms and spells, and an ever-deepening understanding of the interior life of a young hero.


"Once again, Sage's tale combines humor, adventure, and inventive storytelling and is sure to please her many fans." Booklist


"Syren is Sage at her best: it's full of fun, adventure, humor, irony, friendship, loyalty, and nonstop action." School Library Journal

This book was definatly something to look forward to after Queste. It shows how much the characters have grown and the stressful situations they have to face. It's another great adventure and keeps you going till the last page.

As the characters mature, they gain in power and have more complex relationships. I'm sad to say that I found this installment rather wearying. I wondered where the story was going, and also had a hard time caring. This made for a more passive reading experience. I found myself wondering what this book contributed to the series story arc, or whether it was more picaresque than anything else. I hope not; I want these details gathered up and nicely integrated in the remaining two books.
