Darke (Septimus Heap, #6)
by Angie Sage
Published June 7, 2011
Angie Sage's Magykal series continues in frantic, high-spirited fashion in this latest number. To save the Castle and the Wizard Tower from certain destruction, Septimus Heap wades into the Darke to battle evil; but he isn't alone: Jenna, Marcellus Pye, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, and even Septimus' problematic brother Simon assist in the fray. A nice mix of action and wit.
I've loved all the Septimus Heap books, but this might be my favorite. I'm afraid if say anything else I'll give away the whole story, and I'm not into spoilers. SO. Go read it!
