The final book in this gripping series.
on 28 April 2013
This has to be the best and sadly the last of this incredible series of books about Septimus Heap the ExtraOrdinary Wizard's Apprentice (Marcia Overstrand), Marcellus Pye the Alchemist.......in fact, all the characters from the original books are written into this story.
It took me 2 and a half solid hours of reading to finish this book and then I felt sad because there won't be anymore tales about Magyk, Alchemie and Charms.
Luckily for me, I got the dust jacket that matches all my original books and I think the rough looking edging to the paper is to make the book look old.
Marcia has finally given Marcellus permission to open the Alchemie Chamber and re-start the Fyre but will it work and have the Drummins survived the original catastrophe that saw Marcellus nearly killed? Simon has been offered a job by Marcellus much to his astonishment and is now married to Lucy nee Gringe.
When two disreputable characters turn up at the Heaps, they are finally recognised as Septimus's Uncles. They are not Wizards but Conjurors but harmless ones at that and turn out to be likeable. However, something or somebody is after them and when Marcia finds the double headed ring is missing things start to turn bad for everyone.
I don't want to say anymore because it would be a spoiler but I can say that there is a death and also a birth.
A brilliant series of books........a huge well done to Angie Sage and a lot of gratitude for giving me such pleasure over the years.
