Septimus Heap: Magyk by Angie Sage is about a family of wizards who’s seventh son died on the day he was born. If he had survived, he would have been hugely powerful being the seventh son of the seventh son. On the very same day of his death, Silas Heap, the father of the large family, finds a baby girl in the snow with violet eyes. Ten years later, several mysteries arise that question the true fate of Septimus Heap, who’s magykal powers would make him the target of many evil wizards trying to use him as a weapon against society. Soon the Heaps and the ExtraOrdinary Wizard, Marcia Overstrand, are hunted by the necromancer DomDaniel, and forced into hiding.
I must say, I loved this book, though it was a little confusing at times because the author switched back and forth between characters points of view constantly. I don’t think I ever stopped laughing once I got started on the book. If you loved this book, there are six more in the series. I would say that this book should be read by kids starting at eight and ending at 1000 years old. I certainly recommend this book for anyone who loves comedy, magic, fantasy, and excitement.
