Septimus Heap is a series of fantasy novels featuring a protagonist of the same name written by English author Angie Sage. In all, it features seven novels, entitled Magyk, Flyte, Physik, Queste, Syren, Darke and Fyre, the first (Magyk) in 2005 and the final (Fyre) in 2013.
Alther Mella has been Banished, a Darke Domaine engulfs the Castle, and a Darke dragon is on the loose. Septimus Heap must use all of his skills to save the Castle and the Wizard Tower from ...more
Roar - so Robert really likes Angie Sage (he met her once) but I've gone off her a bit because of this book; there's a Pesky Dragon in it. (Angie Sage calls it a Darke Dragon but it comes to the same thing.) We Dragons have enough bad press already, without contemporary authors adding to it with their books with Pesky Dragons in! Roar! At ...more
Well. I finised it, and I'm disappointed. Not that the story was disappointing. It was typical Septimus Heap. Septimus, now fourteen, must undergo his Darke Week, and what he wants to do is rescue accidentally-Banished ghost, Alther Mella, from the Darke Halls. But pretty soon, an old menace finally makes his move; Merrin Merredith has beseiged the Castle with a Darke Domaine, trapping everyone in a giant pool of suffocating Darke Magyk. Exciting ...more
I'm getting dangerously close to the end of this series and frankly, since I've come to love and appreciate it, I wouldn't have minded if it had 15 more books. Sticking to a series can be hard but once you get over the hesitation it feels amazing to keep visiting the same world over and over again. Provided the books are good, of course.
-I would say that the sixth Septimus Heap book was darker than the rest, not only would it be a pun but it'd also be true. The whole Castle was at serious risk t ...more

Wow!! rec'd a store copy this week in addition to the advanced reading copy. I am amazed.
started reading this on my vacation. Generally not an issue its book 6 and i never finished chapter 1 of book 1. Necessary knowledge from the previous books is woven into the story without disruption to the plot reminders for those who have read books 1-5 and info for those of us who haven't.
I am not finding myself attaching to a ...more
I absolutely adore how well Sage enters into a child's mindset with their attitude, thoughts, and behaviors. I recognize myself as a child as well as the adult who's watching the kids mess up. AND, to be fair, the kids are doing a pretty good job of life.
It's really Beetle who's the hero ...more
He is clearly the best character in this series. And that's saying something. I find that Darke, just like every book in the Septimus Heap series, has great character work for every single character. And there are a lot. Most of them are not even written to be likeable (like Marcia), but they feel so real you can't help but fall in love with them anyway.
I have to admit though, Jenna and Septimus are starting to get on my nerves. Jenna just spends the ...more
I loved this book! The plot is full of action and magic and twists. I adore the characters, and I love how they grow and learn throughout the series. This book was particularly emotional for the Heap family as prodigal son, Simon, strives to win back his family’s love and trust.
My only troubl ...more
I wouldn’t say that the long wait was a wasted effort; though the book fell short of expectations. At least in my case.
In this volume, Merrin Meredith, apprentice to necromancer Domadaniel and now wearing his two faced ring has decided upon himself to setup a Darke Domaine in the castle and overcome even the Wizard Tower, with the help of his faithful THINGS. This D ...more
This is probably my favorite book of the entire series. It keeps you on the edge of your seat as the "Darke" (the bad magic)threatens to overtake the kingdom. The Darke also tasks the strongest wizards, and for a while, the reader wonders who will come out unscathed (spoiler -- not everyone makes it).
Dragons, magic rings, mysterious dark clouds, "Things", ghosts (the good kind), a reunited son ...more
The series has Harry Potter like elements with magic and wizards and a young male hero but is not so dark and a very different writing style. There isn't really one bi ...more
