Review: Magyk (Angie Sage)

Read-a-thon book #10

I really enjoyed this novel, which is Book One in the Septimus Heap series. The writing was witty and entertaining, aside from the slightly frustrating occurrences of trying to incorporate too many points of view in one chapter. I liked the plot a lot, too, as it was a good example of kids/teen fantasy. I’m definitely going to look for the next books. (This one had been an ebook freebie once upon a time. Good idea on the publisher’s part, since they hooked themselves another fan.)

Septimus Heap, the seventh son of the seventh son, disappears the night he is born, pronounced dead by the midwife. That same night, the baby’s father, Silas Heap, comes across an abandoned child in the snow — a newborn girl with violet eyes. The Heaps take her 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?
