New York Times Bestselling Series

“A memorable, edge-of-the-seat escapade that will enthrall confirmed fans and newbies alike.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Sage proves again that she has an inventive feel for fantasy adventure.” —ALA Booklist

“The most suspenseful installment yet.” —VOYA (starred review)

In this sixth Magycal installment, Alther Mella has been Banished, a Darke Domaine engulfs the Castle, and a Darke dragon is on the loose. Septimus Heap must use all of his skills to save the Castle and the Wizard Tower from destruction: He must enter the Darke. But he cannot do this alone. With the help of Jenna, Alther Mella, Marcellus Pye, and Septimus's estranged brother, Simon Heap, Septimus and Marcia Overstrand battle the spreading Darkenesse. Will Septimus succeed in protecting his Magykal world?

Written with Angie Sage's characteristic flair, Septimus Heap, Book Six: Darke is a compelling fantasy adventure filled with surprises, thrills, and laugh-out-loud moments. Readers will revel in the action-packed story as they realize the wisdom of Magyk—that all things are meant to be part of a living whole.

Angie Sage is such a great author, I really look up to her. Her characters are so well developed and I am going to be so sad when the series ends. (Only one book left after Darke!) The age range for this book is 9-12 years old. I am older than that and I still love it. Anyone who has read and enjoyed the Harry Potter books will love this series. I have waited FOREVER for Darke, and now it's finally out!

This was my favorite book in the series! This is a great read to any one that likes adventure, suspense, and fiction! I couldn't put this book down. If you are one of those people that read books in a serious out of order. Don't do  that with this series. It won't make any sense to you at all, even though she explains what happened in the other  books. If you are debating if you should or shouldn't read this book. READ IT!

The story begins with Marcia Overstrand trying to banish Tertius Fume to the Darke Halls. Halfway thru the spell, Fume turns the tables and banishes Alther Mella instead. Coincidentally, young Septimus Heap is about to begin his Darke Week, meaning that he is the only one who can save Alther. But thats not the only thing our young hero faces. Merrin Meredith, Sep's doppelganger, is back with a vengeance (and a Two-Faced Ring) to set a Darke Domaine over the Castle in a final attempt to take the life of Septimus Heap. The characters in this book continue to have new dimensions added to them with hilarious escapades by the dozens.

In Syren if one Thing magically freezes then all the other ones freeze too because they are a group. But in Darke when Jenna and Sep find three things in the Spit Fyre's cabin Sep freezes one of them but nothing happen to the others. Besides why didn't they think of it in the first place? Besides that it was one of the best books in the series. I loved it ;)

The 6th Septimus Heap book continues just as good as the others. I was only going to give 3 stars... mainly because of Sarah Heap. Nobody could be as stupid and behave as childishly as this woman did and it really made me want to skip any part that she was in. However, any book that can make me laugh out loud (as this one did at the very end) automatically gets a 1 star bump from me. Aside from Mrs. Heap, it was a great book and I'm looking forward to reading Fyre.
