As the story of Septimus Heap continues with Septimus Heap a year and a half into Septimus's apprenticeship, Simon comes and kidnaps Jenna. Septimus must try to find her and bring her home again.
I liked that this book had surprises around each corner! It's never boring,and has a good adventure to the book. It's definitely a must-read.
The characters are all wizards, princesses, and more. All are courageous, good and bad alike.
I give this book five out of five foxes
