more fun than Harry Potter, but with less anxiety

I loved this installment of the Septimus Heap series. Ms. Sage has created a number of interesting and eccentric characters throughout her series, both good and evil, with Septimus holding the central heroic position as is only fitting for the newly promoted Apprentice. Syren is a book that has wide appeal for all ages! The book had enough action to hold my interest, and even though it is written for a much younger audience, I had a great time reading it and was wishing for more at the end. It has all the magic that the Harry Potter series has, without the gut-wrenching anxiety and violence. Syren is written just for fun, and that's exactly what it is! Bravo!


I've read all the books thus far and this by far was my favorite. The story is brimming with adventure and action, but Sage does not drift away from the humor that keeps her book unique and exciting. The descriptions provide the reader with thorogh descriptions and the story gives an intimate look into what it's like to be a preteen. As a teenager in her later years of high school, this book was not too far off what I felt only a couple of years before. The book shows teenage angst, but doesn't lather it on like some books often do. I definately recommend this book and can't wait for Sage to release another!

Enchanting & Humorous!

The fifth in the series and this one is my favorite of the five. We are getting to know and love Septimus and his friends! I think this book is great for boys as well as girls ages 9 to 12! P.J.

Think It is The Perfect Fifth Book In This Series!

I think the character development in this one was perfect, and do not understand the comment another reader made that it was not. I felt we learned more about these "tweens" as they are approaching adulthood, and I felt it was realistic development, too. The story line is, as always with Ms. Sage, engaging, and new characters come on the scene smoothly. The new characters themselves are interesting, and I find myself looking forward to Book Six--the wait! the wait!!!! It is so hard to wait!!! --with great anticipation, to see how they progress.

I Loved It.

Angies books just keep getting better and better! I loved the 4th book and just could not wait for this one. This book is a 1000 times better than previous ones. The plot is stunning and the descriptions are beautiful. Simply put, this book will complete your colection!
