Book Review, Flashback Friday, magyk

Flashback Friday: Magyk

Happy Friday everyone! Flashback Friday is when I post a book I loved but haven’t read in awhile. Just so you know these reviews will be lacking in the details department since I have a TERRIBLE book memory. I can remember the characters, but I couldn’t tell you what happened to them or even how it ends sometimes. Hey, it makes re-reading fun and just as exciting as the first read. 🙂

Title: Magyk
Author: Angie Sage
Publisher: Katherine Teagan Books
Release Date: March 2005
Pages: 564 (I think the print is bigger with smaller pages)
Series: Septimus Heap #1
4 STARS: I Really Liked It

The seventh son of the seventh son, aptly named Septimus Heap, is stolen the night he is 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?

The first book in this enthralling new series by Angie Sage leads readers on a fantastic journey filled with quirky characters and magykal charms, potions, and spells. Magyk is an original story of lost and rediscovered identities, rich with humor and heart.

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book and the entire series. It’s been at least five years since I read Magyk. I read five of the six books. This book is great for young teens and old. It’s for anyone who wants to read a light, fun, exciting fantasy. Go read it, have your kids read it, you’ll love it. I think I’ll go re-read it too.

This post is really to just introduce you to this great book even though I can’t remember what happens. That’s embarrassing. =P

Happy Reading!
