Magyk (book review)



Magyk is a suspenseful fantasy story by Angie Sage. In this story, Silas and Sarah Heap are celebrating the arrival of their seventh son, Septimus Heap. Septimus is special and Magykal, as he is the seventh son of the seventh son. When Septimus is taken from them by the Matron Midwife, a servant of the dark and powerful wizard, DomDaniel, the Necromancer, Silas and Sarah lament. But then a baby girl is found in the woods. The Heaps take her in and name her Jenna. But this girl holds a dark secret...a secret that, ten years later, will send Silas to a place he never imagined he would ever have to go, with people he never thought he'd meet, on a mission he never thought he would embark on. Is Jenna the key to finding Septimus and restoring peace?

It took me five days to read this book, but I enjoyed every minute of it! I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

I give this book 10 out of 10 stars.

The Once Upon a Time Challenge: 8 books down, 7 to go.

I've read all 3 and they are all good! I think I like Angie Sage ALMOST as much as Cornelia Funke! But I think I liked Inheart/Inkspell just a "little bit" more lol

You've really made me want to read this book, Annie. Now can you add the time to my days so that I can? I remember how much I loved summers when I was a kid (as opposed to now when I only get to act like one and then only from time to time) because I had even MORE time to read. I've added Magyk to a list with Shiva's Fire as books I really want to look at. Thanks!
