Septimus Heap - The Amazing Story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fyre: Septimus Heap book 7 (Hardcover)
I first found Magyk at a charity book stall and I got hooked! I originally purchased the set of 6 books and then the 7th one. It is the story of Septimus Heap, the 7th son of a 7th son. He was taken at birth by the midwife who told the family he had died. But he was put in the 'Young Army' controlled by the infamous Dom Daniel, the Extraordinary Wizard at the time but who was subsequently ousted and Marcia Overstrand took over as Extraordinary Wizard who controlled the magyk settlement. Septimus was reunited with his family and became Marcia's apprentice. The books tell the story of the perils Septimus (and his brothers) go through to rid the land of the ghost of Dom Daniel and of Princess Jenna who was placed in the Heap family as a baby to save her from his clutches as he did not want her to grow up and become queen (having murdered her mother). Excellent story for all ages from about 9, depending on the reading age of the child, and for those much older - I am 70! I passed them on to my daughter (47) who is now enjoying them and then they will be passed on to my grandson (now aged 7) in a couple of years!
I found them unputdownable!
