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!
