The bestselling Septimus Heap series is perfect for kids who love adventure stories filled with magic, mythical creatures and (age-appropriate) danger.

Septimus Heap, Book One: Magyk (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $4.49)

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?

 

Septimus Heap, Book Two: Flyte (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $5.69)

It’s been a year since Septimus Heap discovered his real family and true calling to be a wizard.

As Apprentice to Extra Ordinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, he is learning the fine arts of Conjurations, Charms, and other Magyk, while Jenna is adapting to life as the Princess and enjoying the freedom of the Castle.

But there is something sinister at work. Marcia is constantly trailed by a menacing Darke Shadow, and Septimus’s brother Simon seems bent on a revenge no one understands. Why is the Darke Magyk still lingering?

Bringing fantasy to new heights, Angie Sage continues the journey of Septimus Heap with her trademark humor and all of the clever details readers have come to love.

 

Septimus Heap, Book Three: Physik (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $5.69)

When Silas Heap unSeals a forgotten room in the Palace, he releases the ghost of a Queen who lived five hundred years earlier.

Queen Etheldredda is as awful in death as she was in life, and she’s still up to no good. Her diabolical plan to give herself everlasting life requires Jenna’s compliance, Septimus’s disappearance, and the talents of her son, Marcellus Pye, a famous Alchemist and Physician.

And if Queen Etheldredda’s plot involves Jenna and Septimus, then it will surely involve Nicko, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, Beetle, Stanley, Sarah, Silas, Spit Fyre, Aunt Zelda, and all of the other wacky, wonderful characters that made Magyk and Flyte so memorable.

With heart-stopping action and a dash of humor, Angie Sage continues the fantastical journey of Septimus Heap.

 

Septimus Heap, Book Four: Queste (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $6.83)

There’s trouble at the Castle, and it’s all because Merrin Meredith has returned with Darke plans for Septimus. More trouble awaits Septimus and Jenna in the form of Tertius Fume, the ghost of the very first Chief Hermetic Scribe, who is determined to send Septimus on a deadly Queste.

But Septimus and Jenna have other plans—they are headed for the mysterious House of Foryx, a place where all Time meets and the place where they fervently hope they will be able to find Nicko and Snorri, who were trapped back in time in physik.

But how will Septimus escape the Queste?

Queste, like all the books in the Septimus Heap series, is filled with nonstop action, humor, and fantastical adventure as Septimus continues his journey of Magykal self-discovery.
