There were two reasons why I got and read Magyk, the first book in Angie Sage’s Septimus Heap series. The first is that I have a very difficult time resisting anything that is free (and at the time the book was Barnes & Noble’s free Nook book of the week). The second is that there has been a small void since the last of the Harry Potter books came out that can only be temporarily appeased (and it’s still a little early for me to go ahead with my plan to re-read the original seven before the release of the final installment of the movie franchise in July).

Septimus Heap is born to a wizard family and happens to be the seventh son of a seventh son, making him a very magykal being. Unfortunately, Septimus dies shortly after birth leaving the family temporarily devastated. But Silas Heap found a newborn baby girl in the snow on the way back to his family the day of Septimus’ short life and she helps the distraught mother and bewildered boys to heal. Until the day that an Assassin comes to kill their beloved girl who is really the daughter of the late queen, slain ten years earlier on the day of the girl’s birth (and Septimus’ death). The Heaps are not the only ones determined to protect the princess as Darke magyk threatens more than just their family.
