Again a very good book of a good series. Nice and riveting plot. Highly recommended.

Can't wait for the next installment. Also Jenna getting more irritating. My least liked character. Missed Wolf Boy and Aunt Zelda. Only a page for them in the entire book. ( )

The sixth in the series of Septimus Heap, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son & Apprentice to the Extra Ordinary Wizard.

The Darke has taken over the castle....and the Wizards are locked safely in the Wizards' Tower.... Septimus, Princess Jenna (who has inadvertently become a Witch), Simon, their mother Sarah, Lucy & Marcellus Pye have escaped the Darke. Together they are intent on defeating the Darke and restoring life back to what it once was.

Although I liked most of the book...all the myriad of minute nit picky descriptive details Bored the Heck Out of Me..... I was close to putting down the book about 5/8ths of the way through.... but I managed to finish, just barley, which is why I only gave it 3 ?s. ( )

I love all the Septimus Heap books and was so delighted to have the chance to spend some time in that world again. I'd been missing it since I read (or rather, listened to) all the previous books last summer. But this one went by entirely too quickly!

Given that it's the sixth book, and Septimus (the seventh son of a seventh son) is poised to become the 777th ExtraOrdinary Wizard, I'm sure there's a seventh (and final) book in the making. But I'll be sad to see the world come to an end, although I understand a film version is in the works. I just hope they don't cast someone as Marcia who looks like the drawings I've seen on the Septimus Heap wiki, as that's not her at all! ( )

I think this is one of the better books in the series. I like how one scene definitely ends and then you move on to something else. I also appreciated the end notes of what happened to everyone. It tied up all the loose ends quite nicely. ( )

Going through this book, I was encountered with beautiful detail. The plot was incredibly great. The invasion of a dark magic called the "Darke Domaine" was infesting the castle. Many citizens were being lulled into a peaceful sleep or were plucked up by a "Darke" dragon. The evil Merrin was forcing this domain to kill and rule the castle. The wizards were sealed in their tower for protection, but it is a fruitless cause. The Darke Domaine now rules the castle. Now Septimus must face the dragon and Merrin with all his might. Good thing he has his own dragon to help out.
