Summary: The seventh son of the seventh son, aptly named Septimus Heap, is stolen the night he was born by a midwife who pronounces him dead. That same night, the baby’s father, Silas Heap, comes across a bundle in the snow containing a new born girl with violet eyes. The Heaps take this helpless newborn into their home, name her Jenna, and raise her as their own. But who is this mysterious baby girl, and what really happened to their beloved son Septimus?
Review: Angie Sage has created a riveting world of fantasy, adventure, and of course humor. The spellbinding dance of the plot is full of captivating characters and is rich with mystery. She provides new take on the world of wizards and magic. Magyk is the first book in the Septimus Heap series. It is an excellent read for those who are fond of Harry Potter and I recommend it to any young or old reader. I can’t wait to review the next in the series. 😉
