“Magyk,” book one in the Septimus Heap Series, is a great book for any young reader. If you like the Harry Potter series, you will love the Septimus Heap Series. This book takes you on an adventurous journey from the castle, into the woods, and over great marshes. I recommend this for any reader, young or old. It is such a great page-turning book; you will encounter things you never thought you would. Magyk has been the best series starter I have ever read.

Comparisons with Harry Potter are inevitable; but this isn't a copy; it isn't derivative. Sure, there re echoes of JKR, but also echoes of Tolkien, C S Lewis, and every other fantasy book that's ever been written for children. Because there always will be; there are only so many stories to be told. But Angie Sage has put her own spin on the eternal story of good versus evil and produced a great new set of characters. They don't replace Harry and their friends, but they certainly deserve a place on the same shelf.
Although I'm long past the age group this book is aimed for, I absolutely loved it and devoured it in two days. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Highly recommended.
There are 7 books in the series, each one as unputdownable as the previous one.
It truly is a Magykal story ! I bought the series of 7 books for my grandson, aged 10, who is enthralled. I am keeping my own set to read again, probably when I get to 80! (Now 73!) Get them all - you will not regret it! I prefer these books to Harry Potter!
It seems to have been written so that young teenagers would enjoy it without getting bogged down in over zealous descriptions and intricate plots. It is a vary easy read.
The story seems to centre on the main character, though I guess you could say there are several main characters, who is simply known as Boy 412, a 10-year-old orphan who is conscripted into the Young Army. Captured by the enemy (or so he thinks) he refuses to utter a word throughout almost the entire story. He is wisked off from the castle he knows as home and becomes embroiled in a plot against the Extra-Ordinary wizard (who has "captured" him), a sort of chief wizard. I became quite attached to him and was hoping he would make it to the end.
I vary much enjoyed the story and as the story progressed I did start to figure out the ending, but it was still great to see it unfold before my eyes. It is totally different from Harry Potter, though there are one or two things that crop up in the story that remind you of Harry Potter (Boggarts and a character called Rupert Grinch - Rupert Grint who plays Ron Weasley in HP? >.< ) but that is where any similarity ends really.
I look forward to reading the sequel Flyte: Septimus Heap Book 2
Note on the Kindle version: Good formatting and only only typo that I saw right at the vary end where a Shield Bug is called a Shield Bag. Other than that; perfect.
However, because of all the mystery, I think it's only worth one read because knowing what's going to happen really ruins the mystery if you read it again.
Hope this honest review helps, have a nice day.
Thoroughly enjoyed the story, I've since bought the entire set in paperback which I'm very looking forward to reading.
