HASH(0x9f1e903c) out of 5 stars Septimus Heap rocks and this set is the best way to get started. May 4 2008
By Joshua G. Feldman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Pitched at 4th-8th graders, the Septimus Heap books are awesome and have wider appeal (my second grade son is now reading the 3rd and his mother and I devoured these with glee). They are well written with relentless page turning pace and, while packed with danger and excitement, light enough not to cause nightmares or anxiety. Septimus Heap novels are situated in a Tolkien-style magical world of medieval technology humans and a vivid pantheon of light and dark magical creatures (witches, brownies, boggarts, wraiths, talking rats, dragons, enchanted insects, etc...) The society is dominated by a sort of bicameral government of wizards with magical power and a political power dimension of a queen/princess (although it's held by a corrupt tyranny through most of Magyk). I'm not going to give any spoilers but I will say that the protagonists are children (age 10) and various pre and barely adolescent siblings who are smarter than the parental figures who are supportive and avuncular without having enough initiative or insight to spare the kids the lions share of the action. The struggle is the ageless one between good and evil and those elemental forces are echoed in the magyk and the nature of landscapes flora and fauna. The major themes are family, destiny, courage, and friendship. The central trope - magyk - is brilliantly conceived. The rules and behavior and appearance of magyk are really creatively and beautifully done. The story telling is brisk with great (relentless) pacing. Angie Sage has a great cinematic sense of action and a good ear for dialog. They are real page turners well pitched for middle school grades. Adults will like them too, I basically couldn't put them down until their conclusions. Highly recommended for the right kids (you know who they are) - and well recommended for parents to read it too. Tons of fun.

As for paperback versus hard cover issue - these are pretty thick chunky books (more than 500 brief quick reading pages each). The paperback adds some much needed lightness and flexibility and saves about 35% off the price. I was the 3rd person to read our particular paperback copies (after my son and wife). They were still in fine condition (no pages falling out or smudged ink). I have no problem recommending this dirt cheap edition.

I haven't read the second book yet but I really liked the first one. I would recommend Angie Sage. I am not a young reader and I still enjoyed the book.

HASH(0x9f1e94c8) out of 5 stars AMAZING book series Aug. 3 2011
By J. Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback
I came across a site that spoke of this series, so I decided to give it a try for my 10 year old son. I decided to read it at the same time so I could "book chat" with him. It turned out I fought him for the book, as I could not put it down. It was such an easy read, and great story. I couldn't want to start the second one, and since then, we have acquired the entire series. I highly recommend it!!!

HASH(0x9f1e996c) out of 5 stars Just as good as Potter books May 13 2009
By MommaMia - Published on
Format: Paperback
I can't understand why these books haven't received the attention that the Harry Potter books did. They are well written, exciting stories for young kids and adults alike. I tried the first book because I liked the cover and size of the book and it caught my eye at the library. I am purchasing copies for my 21 year old son and will eventually read them to my 5 year old. I think it's a matter of advertising or the book publishers getting the word out because this writer is right up there with JK, no doubt about that. I hope that more people hear about these books and give them a try. I'm going to spread the word because I think they are worth the read.
