The most amazing story of Magyk and Wizardry
on 23 August 2017
The first book in the Septimus Heap chronicles. This is my second time of reading and I enjoyed them even more this time.It tells the story of Septimus who is the 7th son of a 7th son and, therefore, magykal! He is stolen from his mother, Sarah, as a newborn baby but is replaced by a newborn baby girl whom the Heaps bring up as their own. However, unbeknown to the Heaps, Septimus is placed in the 'Young Army' and, when he is old enough, he is sent on 'Do or Die' exercises. Does he get back with his family? You will have to read the book to find out!
There are 7 books in the series, each one as unputdownable as the previous one.
It truly is a Magykal story ! I bought the series of 7 books for my grandson, aged 10, who is enthralled. I am keeping my own set to read again, probably when I get to 80! (Now 73!) Get them all - you will not regret it! I prefer these books to Harry Potter!
