Waiting on Wednesday (4)

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly MEME hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together and pick our most anticipated upcoming book releases!

Here's my choice for this week: 

Fyre (Septimus Heap #7)
Release Date: April 16th, 2013
Author: Angie Sage

Synopsis: Now that Septimus, Jenna, and Beetle are fourteen years old, they have assumed larger roles in their Magykal world. Beetle has become the Chief Hermetic Scribe of the Manuscriptorium and Jenna is waiting to be crowned Queen, but Septimus is still battling the remnants of the Dark Domaine, which will remain until the power of the evil Two-Faced Ring is destroyed forever. To accomplish that, the ancient Alchemie Fyre must be relit—a task that sends Septimus to the very origins of Magyk and Physik, testing both his skills, and his loyalties to ExtraOrdinary Wizard, Marcia Overstrand, and Alchemist Marcellus Pye.

In a journey that encapsulates the entire Septimus Heap series, Septimus will continue to discover the truth of who he is and expand upon his Magykal power and skills. Septimus Heap, Book Seven: Fyre weaves together every singular character from the entire series and incorporates many of the Magykal places from each book. Written with Angie Sage’s distinctive humor and heart, Fyre is the grand finale that celebrates the greatest Magyk of all: When the Fyre inside is kindled and when the Time is Right, anything is possible.


Fyre is the 7th and final book in the Septimus Heap series and it's been a pretty long wait to the finish.  With the release finally drawing near(er) and looking back on the previous 6 books I realize I have close to no idea where Sage is going to go with this final chapter of her tale.  The way book 6 ended was the way I had imagined the series ending so I'm ready for big surprises and some nostalgia while we revisit everything Septimus has accomplished in his Magikal training.  While the series as a whole was somewhat hit-and-miss for me (especially at the begining), overall I still really enjoyed the story; especially book 6... but I'm even more anxious to see how it will all end!

    1. Crazy huh!? At first I thought it was suspiciously like another 7-book series about a boy wizard, but she has a reason for doing 7 as well :) Thanks for visiting Amanda!

    1. OMG YAY! Another Septimus Heap fan :D I couldn't believe how long the wait for book 7 was going to be when I finished Darke (which was easily my favorite in the series!) but now that we have a cover and reasonably early 2013 release date I'm getting really curious!

      We really do have very similar tastes in books don't we? ♥ Thanks for visiting Shaheen!
