Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm going to feature a book from a series that I dearly love. I only knew of this new installment last month but of course I've been always positive that the Septimus Heap series would not end with only six books. After all, seven is the most magical number, right? :)
So without further ado, here it is:
Series: Book 7, Septimus Heap series
Author: Angie Sage
Release Date: April 16, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
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.
WHY I'M WAITING ON IT
I've always enjoyed Middle Grade books and the first six books entertained me a lot. I can't wait to see what happens next to Septimus and the others. I also miss a lot of characters, especially Nicko and ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand. I expect this would be a welcome breather since my TBR pile mostly consists of Young Adult and New Adult books. It's a bit sad, though, because this is the last book of the series. Nevertheless, I'll be keeping an eye for it come April. ^_^
Is anyone also waiting on Fyre? What book are you waiting on?
