Although DomDaniel is believed dead after the wreck of his boat, and, in fact, the end of the first book in the series saw his skeleton sinking to the bottom of the Marram Marshes, not all members of the Heap family are happy to have the prodigal son return. Simon Heap, the oldest of Silas and Sarah's sons, had always hoped to gain the apprenticeship to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard. When that goal was thwarted by the reappearance of young Septimus, Simon's anger turned to revenge. After rescuing the bones of DomDaniel, the evil Wizard, from a watery grave, Simon disappeared into the Badlands, much to the worry and horror of his family.
Nearly a year has passed, and Jenna, the Princess who will one day become Queen, is enjoying the quiet, peaceful life in the Palace. She has settled into her life on the Palace grounds, once again happy and secure. Nicko Heap has taken a job at the boatyard; the four wild Heap children are still living in the Forest with Wolf Boy; Septimus is learning the ways of Magyk. All is well until one day when Simon Heap, surrounded by Darkness, rushes onto the Palace grounds upon a black horse and kidnaps Jenna, taking her away to the Badlands.Read more ›
It's a bit slow at first, but as you read on, you'll find that you can't put the book down.
There are a lot of twists and plots in this book that will surprise you and keep you going. The boys have all grown up and started to lead their own lives. For Simon, he had just came back from some unknown places and has changed a lot since then. His family felt that somethings odd about Simon, but they just can't place what. For Sam, Edd, Erik, Jo-jo, they went to live in the forest and has slow down their pace of living, just like the forest. Nicko went to work at Jannit's boatyard and is working along with Rupert Gringe, Lucy(Simon's lover)'s brother. Septimus has learnt more about Magyk since the Apprentice dinner and is growing more accustomed to it. He lives in him own room in the Wizard tower, and tidy the Library every morning, since it's his job as Apprentice to the Extraordinary Wizard. The Heap family has moved to the Castle along with Jenna, Septimus visits there sometimes, when he has his day off, which is not a lot.
But when Simon kidnapped Jenna and no one believed it(except Nicko), Septimus must find a way to rescue her, no matter how much it costs. On the other hand, Jenna felt uneasy being with Simon, he seems to have changed and his moods are unpredictable, sometimes he would be kind to her, but only for a second, then he became the evil man again. Both Septimus and Jenna must find a way, for the former, to save Jenna; for the latter to escape Simon's grasps. And together, the three of them, Septimus, nicko and Jenna, undergoes a perilous journey to face the unknown.Read more ›
A great kids book that can be enjoyed by all. It is fast paced, gripping and wickedly funny. Sage has included the return of all the major characters including the hilarious message rat Stanley and the ever-grumpy Bogart. The second book in the Septimus Heap trilogy is just as good as the first this is funny tale of magic and intrigue that you will not want to miss. If you liked the first one then you will love this.
Septimus has gotten into his role as apprentice in the wizard tower, and it is never boring. Jenna has moved into the Palace with her parents, and she is enjoying her newfound freedom. But one day Jenna is kidnaped by her older brother. A brother blinded with jealousy and rage. He is in lead with the evil necromacer, and once again Jenna and Septimus will have to fight for their lives, the safety of everyone they love. Are they up to the task? Is Jenna ready for her role as the young Queen?
Another thrilling adventure. Fast paced and hillarious! Great stuff!!!! :)
