Now I love the Harry Potter books. Artemis Fowl books. Bloody Jacks books, and The Tar man series, not to mention Val Tyler and her Time Wrecca books, and these set of books are up there, if not ahead of Harry Potter, as far as I'm concerned. These give me everything I could wish for in a fantasy, without giving me names and places which I have no idea how to pronounce. And so many characters, that I lose who is who. The humour is brilliant, and the characters sheer genius. I had read all the books so far and Angie Sage is, as far as I'm concerned, right there with The Lord of the Rings. But even better for me because I don't get lost with who is who and who did what, like I do with the actual Tolkien books.
Brilliant. Highly recommended. A world I would like to live in.
I read the first book in this series while I was on holiday in France, I was around 13 at the time and I found it great. But even is I've gotten older as the books have been comming out I still find that i enjoy them and Would gladly recomend them for both children and adults alike.
Previously voracious reader of paper books. Audible saved my sanity when I could no longer read them.
This series has really captured my son's imagination. We've read some of the books and listened to some on audio. The narration is superb. It's definitely not a Harry Potter rip off just because there are wizards involved - a very different feel. Highly recommended
"Super Fun Book!!"
I actually like Septimus Heap more than Harry Potter, so do my kids! We have thoroughly enjoyed listening to these books!
As always, it's easy to disappear into a book full of adventure and magic. The narrator is great and I can't wait till the next book comes out.
"I loved it!!"
I love the audible version so much the way he changes his voice for each character brings the book to life.
The the description of everything in the book made me feel like i was there.
The personality of each character, comes out in his voice.
I love every book cant wait to finish the series...
I have enjoyed this series. I initially picked it out because I was looking for something my daughters might enjoy. I like it so much, I went on to continue the series. If you like Harry Potter or the Percy Jackson books you should enjoy this. This particular book was probably my favorite of the series. My 12 year old daughter has loved them as well! Can't wait for the next in the series!
"the download did not give me whole book"
This was very disappointing I was really into book and have read/listened to all the others but this one stopped before the end of the book and I downloaded everything that was offered. It just stopped.
Not too happy.
Love the series and the speakers they do a great job just wish the whole book was given in the download.
