Love this series! ( )

Very nice book...Quite riveting story.....I love the Wolf boy and Lucy in book 5.

The plot was good....some more stuff on the tunnels is revealed. I got a feeling that the ice tunnels will be having something with the main plot.

On the other hand Jenna is turning into a bitch. Quite irritating. I liked her character in the previous books but this time it was pure awful. Even Beetle irritated a bit. Zelda and Marcia are fun as ever.

Highly Recommended Series. ( )

Really a 2

I was was so looking forward to reading this last book in the Septimus Heap series, but at the end I was disappointed...

Septimus, Spit Fyre, Jenna (Queenling), Beetle, Lucy Gringe, & Niko sail out on Milo's (Jenna's father's ship).....They are waylaid by pirates, the lighthouse light gets moved to the Syren's Island...Syrah Syrah, an apprentice who never returned from her Queste has been possessed by the Syren (for 500 years), helps Septimus.....Tertius Fume has the djinn under his power in order to take over the castle. Septimus also has a Jinnee under his command...

I'm sure there was more to the book....but of all the five this one was the weakest. I saw the Queenling as being actively ignorant and amazing immature compared to her being in the previous four books....

I don't know, it just didn't work for me. ( )

I think I am over the Septimus Heap series by now - or maybe there was just too big a gap between the last one and this one but it just didn't catch me like the other ones had. ( )

This is the 5th book in the Septimus Heap series and let’s say it was a bit different.
I missed the castle and its surroundings. We’ve spent most of the time in Port or on The Islands. Surrounded by water, that means waves. Going up and down. Being a bit bored when the water was calm and the days seemed to take forever. This totally changed after we found out what Miro’s cargo contained and [spoilers removed]. What an adventure!
Can’t wait to read Darke! And hopefully find out what became of Syrah! ^_^ ( )
