A new day, a new review. This one will be about the book "Magyk" by Angie Sage. It's the first book in the Septimus Heap series, and it's targeted to a young audience. This book was actually great! I had a lot of fun reading this awesome book.
The basic plot of "Magyk is that: This guy, Septimus Heap, disappears the night he was born. He was pronounced dead by the midwife. Very shortly after that, Septimus' father finds a baby lying in the snow. He adopts the baby, and names her Jenna. the questions are, who is Jenna and what happened to Septimus?
There were many great things in this book. One of them was a great variety of characters. They all had different personalities and they were very interesting.
Another great thing about this book was the huge amount of magic in it. I'm a fan of Harry Potter, so I really enjoyed that aspect of the book. The world in this book is really fascinating.
I also loved how there was an epilogue, which was all about what happened to minor characters. In most books, you don't get to find out what happened to supporting characters, so I thought that was great.
The only thing I did not like about this book is that it was a little, tiny bit predictable. That's the only negative thing about "Magyk".
That was a really awesome book! If you like books like Harry Potter, Inkheart and Fablehaven, you will love this.
