I have something of a taste for children s and young adult fantasy stories I m a total geek for Harry Potter, and quite enjoyed Fablehaven, Tithe, and Wicked Lovely, amongst others The thing is there are some children s books which, while written young, can appeal to an older audience, and there are others which are written in such a way as to make the cross over nigh impossible This was on of the latter Leaving aside the cliched plot and all the other things that people have pointed out, there [...]
This was pretty good A nice, quick, easy read that kept me entertained I especially enjoyed the whimsical tone throughout I would have liked to see a bit emotional depth and moral ambiguity from the characters though This book doesn t really go there Also a tad long for middle grade Still, a good read, especially for kids, I m sure.

melissa413readsalot I read this book many, many moons ago I loved it then and I love it now Things from the book came back to me as I read them Septimus Heap was taken away as a newborn child with the nurse saying he was deadhe was not He was taken away to turn him into something else In his place there was left a baby girl that was found by the father, Silas Heap It s funny this happens right as their baby is taken hmmm wonder who she is So the house is full of Heaps and several years later whe [...]
Long, entertaining, with some humorous lines, and nice chapter illustrations British version More Harry Potter similarities I didn t mind the postscript with what happened to the minor characters And the prose was certainly better than Paolini s first book I somehow can t force myself to read the second one , and the plot was a lot fresher, too But there were some negatives as well too many characters, without a focal character With no main person to focus and interpret things, it was hard to fe [...]
REVIEW MAGYK by Angie SageI have just read and enjoyed Magyk by Angie Sage It is the story of Septimus Heap, a wizard apprentice I noticed a few similarities to my own Spook s Series For example both Tom Ward and Septimus Heap are both seventh sons of seventh sons Also pointy shoes are mentioned and a boggart features Of course there are differences too Angie Sage s book features wizards who are wielders of magic In my books the Spook and his apprentice practise a craft and use salt and iron and [...]
Poor Angie Sage How annoying, to write a book about a young wizard right in the midst of Harry Potter mania Comparisons are unavoidable, and reading this story in the shadow of Rowling s legacy makes it difficult to properly evaluate the characters and plot without drawing mental links between Boggart and Hagrid, DomDaniel and Voldemort, that leave an adult reader feeling dissatisfied with the world of Magyk It is, however, important to keep in mind that this IS a different book, with different [...]
Eine s e und toll erz hlte Geschichte aber leider nicht meins Im direkten Vergleich haben mir die Chroniken von Anbeginn besser gefallen Das Buch hat f r mich auch nichts mit Harry Potter zu tun Aber das nur am Rande hat nichts mit meiner Bewertung zu tun, hab das nur des fteren in anderen Rezensionen gelesen
I actually ended up enjoying this book quite a lot It took me a few chapters than I would have liked to get into the story and the characters, but after a while I found that I did feel invested I liked the distinct personalities of the characters, and how consistent they seemed to be It also took a while to understand the magical world Two parts to this one, being the good vs evil statuses and people, how things came about, and what it all meant I still feel there is to it all though, and perh [...]
This book is totally unoriginal Even worse, the author try so hard to created her own magical story by replaced a magic wand to a gun Yes, you heard me, a GUN I mean, WTF A magician using a God damn gun This is what I called overly creative dumb ass And using bold in some words e.g Magyk word totally treat the reader like a total retard I totally don t get the point It s totally pissing me off for the fact that this book get so much praise.Enough said.
Amazingly good written Clever, funny, and magical I LOVE IT
Magyk book one of the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage conjured up a certain expectation in my mind before I started reading it that of a young wizard in a medieval setting who has to fight against some other evil wizard That s about as much as the blurb on my edition gives away.So, I m guessing new readers could be very surprised to find out that baby Septimus Heap dies in the first few pages, and is instantly replaced by an orphaned baby girl that the patriarch of the Heap family, Silas, fou [...]
I picked up this books mainly on the aesthetic value the cover had The other reason I was so keen on reading this book was because its summary talked about the seventh son of the seventh son I ve always like this superstition Sadly, when I actually got to reading the book, I was incredibly disappointed.First of, absolutely none of the characters are lovable or eve likable I didn t get attached with any of the characters because they all seemed extremely annoying especially that dog, Maxie Second [...]
Of course one could draw paralells between this book and Harry Potter Rats to send verbal messages instead of owls etc but so what I find the book creative, cute and funny How can you not like pens that can write in any color if they are in good mood.Or a pet rock named Petroc Trelawney, which mostly sleeps but you need to feed it and take for a walk daily Ingenious And you can write your magical ideas on anything Even on preferably unbuttered toast Even though the point of view is omniscent, I [...]
Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooIf you ve been looking for a series that combines the magic of Harry Potter with the imaginative characters of Artemis Fowl, then Septimus Heap and his first book, MAGYK, is definitely the story for you A quick, delightful read that can stand on its own, MAGYK is, without a doubt, an intriguing page turner Septimus Heap, the seventh son of a seventh son, died shortly after birth Born to a family of Wizards, there s no telling what he might have become, as his linea [...]
Children should read this book as a lesson of what a novel should not be The plot is pathetic and weak, careening all over the place without ever forming into a cohesive story line I listened to hour after hour, and it felt an awful lot like when you are listening to someone who takes an hour to tell you a simple story about some mundane task like going to the grocery store Their story is never all that interesting in the first place, but the fact that they manage to drag it out for such an insu [...]

I have been trying to drag myself through this book for the past few days and, if nothing changes, plan to give up within the next 25 pages Yes, this is a children s book No, I am not a child However, I still believe that books can be timeless ageless I read Roald Dahl again towards the end of last year and still found it hilarious I ve also read a few of Dean Lorey s Nightmare Academy series and found them funny and well written While I wouldn t jump to read every book in the series in its corr [...]
classic example of choosing a book based on its prominent display location I saw it was a series, sounded interesting, so I got it While only begun, it is a fun read so fard now, the verdict is, in the words of Simpson s everywhere Mehdly entertaining, annoyingbold, italic , misspelledwordes The story is ok, but nothing gripping I actually left it for weeks with only a few pages at the end.While it wasn t a bad book, per se, it isn t one I can recommend at all.
4.5 stars I really enjoyed this, it was such a fun read.
Overall, this book was a little disappointing It was simply alright It wasn t bad, but I wasn t that into it either I was certainly right when I said this would be a light read It was VERY light The book just seemed a little undeveloped It was like it COULD have been great, but it just wasn t It had the potential, but it was just undeveloped and thin Maybe it s because this book is clearly for a younger audience, maybe I m reading this way too late, maybe I would ve really liked it if I had ve r [...]
I enjoyed this despite the fact that a It was a tad on the slow side.b It gives a really weird introduction to the world, magyk and everything else in general c For the most part, nothing happens.This series is in the what to read after Harry Potter lists and is the principal reason why I wanted to read it While it s a fun book, it s certainly nothing like Harry Potter I felt a little underwhelmed by it all The world of the book and the magyk in it doesn t feel very cohesive and well defined to [...]
This book is packed with action and I can not say one bad thing about it It is one my top 10 list.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, Sila Heap, comes across and 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 whois this mysterious baby girl, andwhat really happened to their beloved son Se [...]
Prvo da napomenem ova knjiga je pisana za relatiovno mladu populaciju, po mojoj proceni do 12 ili 14 godina starosti to zna i da je jako naivna Sa druge strane odli no je napisana Dr i pa nju, likovi su interesantni to je i dobto po to je skoro ceo fokus na njima World building je veoma slab, tek tolko da se dobije neka ideja a ak ni magi ni sistem nije previ e obja njen iako se jako puno vrti oko njega.Nema dosadnih momenata, nema ekspozicije i svet se dr i sopstvenih pravila to je uvek plus ta [...]
One word for you CLICHE
This book was an interesting and unexpected read, I picked it up yesterday in Waterstones and started it in the car on the way home but then found myself unable to put it down and finished reading it in less than 24 hours The most interesting thing for me was that this book is very much like a prequel book that the author doesn t think about until after they ve written the rest of the series but it was in fact the first book in the series And Septimus Heap who I suspect will be the main characte [...]
Magykwasn t BAD, necessarily, it just really pales in comparison to so many other fantasy stories I ve read My main problem with it was the complete lack of a central main character The series title, Septimus Heap, is supposed to be that main character However, he doesn t,technically,show up until really late in the book Before that we jump between SO many different characters Jenna, Silas, Marcia, Nicko, bad guys, good guys, and even boggarts, mice and a wolf I mean those animal narrations are [...]
