Setting: the Trading Post, the Wizard Tower, and the islands
This is book 5 in the Septimus Heap series. I don't know why this is not more popular - it is very engaging and suspenseful. I love Septimus, Jenna, Beetle, and Nikko. They are very strong characters, but even minor characters like Stanley the Message Rat are well defined. They are big books, but they read fast. Maybe they are suffering from being compared to Harry Potter, but just beca...more

We are huge fantasy fans in our house and when I saw a chance to review this book at The Product Review Place I knew I just had to grab it. This fabulous series by author Angie Sage will give Harry Potter fans a new tooth to chew. I totally loved this book! WB has grabbed up the movie rights for this series and I can't wait to see it on the big screen.

The island is captivatingly beautiful, but there is also something strange about it… not least the cat-shaped lighthouse and an eerie presence that sings to Septimus… Trouble is also brewing for Lucy and Wolf Boy, who have become entagled with some nefarious sailors.
Let me start by saying, yes, I like readi...more
I must say that Syren is more for a younger audience but it is actually still entertaining and really enjoyable. As the book is in sequence you have to read them in order. So if you haven't read any of the others I suggest you do so before Syren.
One thing I really like and also get really annoyed with is t...more
