Cherry's Review:
'Kiddie book' which is a reading pleasure for adults as well.

If you are looking for something "academically correct masterpiece", this is probably not your book. But if you are looking for a good read just for the heck of enjoying one, you might just want to pick this one up.

This is the first book of the Septimus Heap series. Tells about the story of the poor but magical Heap family in a kingdom beside a forest. Septimus was stolen at birth by the midwife but the midwife's baby boy was mistakenly taken by the evil sorcerer instead of Septimus. 11 years later Septimus found his family again but its not a happy ever after but a struggle against evil. Of course the story was not as straightforward as that. It has twists and turns that makes this book an enjoyable read on a lazy Sunday morning.

Cherry's Rating: 4.5 out of 5

This is a great book no matter how old you are. If you like Harry and Artemis you will like Septimus just as much. Angie Sage tells a wonderful, quirky story that will hold your interest from the first page to the last. The artwork in the book is very cool also. I HIGHLY recomend this book!!

This book is, in my oppinion, a very good book, and many people, I'm sure, agree with me. Often, at the end of these books written by Angie Sage, are extra chapters which always make the rest of the series make more sense, and to understand them you'd really have to read those too, and that it probably where the problems those few people who don't actually like the series come from.

I loved this story. Never a dull moment throughout the entire book. When I finished it, it was late at night. The next day I drove to 4 different bookstores to find the next book in the series, Flyte. This is a great read for all ages.

Product details 608 pages HarperTrophy - English 9780060577339 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Sage's debut novel, the launch title of the Septimus Heap series, introduces the seventh son of a seventh son, destined to have deep magical powers but who, as the book opens, appears to have died soon after his birth. Silas Heap, the father (who is also a wizard), has just returned home after discovering a newborn baby girl in the snow, and finds Septimus being whisked away from mother Sarah by the midwife. On the heels of these events, Marcia, the newly appointed ExtraOrdinary Wizard, commands Silas to raise the baby as his own, which he does and names her Jenna. The author quickly reveals the girl's heritage via a busybody tavern owner who passes along some gossip: it seems the Queen was assassinated and the baby princess disappeared. The tale then jumps ahead 10 years, where readers find corrupt wizard DomDaniel trying to finish off the royal line. A chase lands Jenna and friends at the island home of the matronly Aunt Zelda, at which point the pace slows dramatically. The author introduces several subplots, summarized rather than dramatized, incorporating many cameos (e.g., Jenna's best friend and Simon's fiance are mentioned in passing), and one boy claims to be Septimus. The author eventually reveals the real Septimus in a clever, if predictable, turn of events, making way for the next installments. Ages 9-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "Heads?up, Harry, there's a new young wizard on his way up....A quick?reading, stand?alone, deliciously spellbinding series opener."
"Review" by , "[S]cores of less-jaded youngsters will lose themselves happily in Sage's fluent, charismatic storytelling, which enfolds supportive allies and horrific enemies, abundant quirky details, and poignant moments of self-discovery."
"Review" by , "[A] fine choice for fantasy readers looking to delve into a new world with lots of magic, plenty of action, and a few neat surprises."
"Review" by , "[T]his story makes use of the themes of identity and belonging, perhaps not altogether originally, but with strong family bonds and interesting characters. Older children may find they have guessed a twist or two before they occur, but will read on anyway."
"Synopsis" by , The first book in this enthralling new series by Angie Sage leads readers on a fantastic journey filled with quirky characters and magykal charms, potions, and spells. Magyk is an original story of lost and rediscovered identities, rich with humor and heart.
