Magyk (Septimus Heap #1)

So, I'm guessing new readers could be very surprised to find out that baby Septimus Heap 'dies' in the first few pages, and is instantly replaced by an orphaned baby girl that the patriarch of the Heap family, Si...more

It took me a few more chapters than I would have liked to "get into" the story and the characters, but after a while I found that I did feel invested. I liked the distinct personalities of the characters, and how consistent they seemed to be.
It also took a while to understand the magical world. Two parts to this: one, being the good vs. evil statuses and people, how things came about, and what it all meant. I still feel there is more to it all...more
If you've been looking for a series that combines the magic of Harry Potter with the imaginative characters of Artemis Fowl, then Septimus Heap and his first book, MAGYK, is definitely the story for you. A quick, delightful read that can stand on its own, MAGYK is, without a doubt, an intriguing page-turner.
Septimus Heap, the seventh son of a seventh son, died shortly after birth. Born to a family of Wizards, there's no telling what he might have become, as hi...more
Septimus Heap, the seventh son of the seventh son, disappears the night he is born, pronounced dead by the midwife. That same night, the baby's father, Sila Heap, comes across and abandoned child in the snow--a newborn girl with violet eyes. The Heaps take her into their home, name her Jenna, and raise her as their own. But whois this mysterious baby girl, andwhat really happened to their belove...more
and now, the verdict is, in the words of Simpson's everywhere: Meh.
mildly entertaining, annoying bold, italic , misspelled wordes . The story is ok, but nothing gripping. I actually left it for weeks with only a few pages at the end.
While it wasn't a "bad" book, per se, it isn't one I can recommend at all.
"Who is Septimus Heap?" asks the back cover--the whole subplot is this ongoing mystery. As far as his family knows, he died close after birth. Given that the series is named for him, we as readers know differently.
The Heap family is a family of wizards, mostly. Silas, the father, was a seventh son. Septimus was his seventh son-...more

Sementara itu, pada hari itu juga, Sang Ayah, Silas Heap, yang sedang mencari ramuan obat untuk anaknya yang baru lahir, menemukan seorang bayi perempuan, yang 10 tahun kemudian diketahui sebagai putri kerajaan.
Septimus ist einfach zu niedlich. Er weiß natürlich nicht wer er ist und hält nicht all zu viel von den Zauberern mit denen er auf der Flucht ist, aber nach und nach freundet er sich mit ihnen an. Von der ganzen Familie Heap bekommt man nicht vi...more
The book is about a web of people living in common area. There is not a particular protagonist, but many of the many of the main characters possess a Magykical power, for Silas Heap, Marcia Overstrand, six of the Heap boys, and their mother Sarah, as well as the ex- ExtraOrdinary ghost wizard Alther and many others have been exposed to Magyk, and some of them are even wizards.
Thus, the title is Magyk.
Now, I love this book, even if it took me a few tries to get into it the first few times I tried...more
Angie Sage´i Septimus Heapi seitsmeraamatulise sarja esimene raamat “Wõlukunst” üllatas mind kahel põhjusel: esimeseks on suurepärased kõrvaltegelased, kelle puhul (mõistetavatel põhjustel) ei häiri, et nad n...more
When I first found this book in my school library, I didn't expect that I would like it so much that I would wait eagerly for the day that I would read the second book, too. And after reading the first chapter or so, it certainly didn't seem like it. It was interesting, I guess, but the first little bit of it was missing the colour and flavor that the rest of the book proved to have (to me, anyway). I guess it seemed like I was just reading s...more

Some of the problems I have with this book are pet peeves: Head hopping like lice, tedious plots, authors who must describe everything in intricate detail, down to the weave of the cloth. Others are just annoyances; words bolded to be "special", mixing random bits of cultures together without apparent rhyme or reason and then throwing them wholesale into the created world, and a writing style that made me want to spork my eyes o...more

It was one of those, "hey look it's 2.99" and I thought...oh what the heck.
I started reading it and given that I'm massively stuck in my book about Suleyman and Charles V, it was a really nice escape from "oh look the pope is in trouble again."
What makes this slightly different than some other YA scifant I've read is that the adults are still major characters and aren't just backdrop as they are in other series. The world created is fun and...more

“You have astonishing Magykal power. I told you before. Maybe now you’ll believe me.” She smiled.
“I—I thought the power came from the ring.”
“No. It comes from you. Don’t forget, the Dragon Boat recognized you even without the ring. She knew. Remember, it was last worn by Hotep-Ra, the first ExtraOrdinary Wizard. It’s been waiting a long time to find someone like him.”
“But that’s because it’s been stuck in a secret tunnel for hundreds of years.”
“Not necessarily,” said Marcia mysteriously. “Things have a habit of working out, you know. Eventually.”
