    "Wonderful"

    After having been a bit disappointed in Syren, I'm glad to say that I thought Darke was one of the best yet. It took me less than 24 hours to finish the whole book. I started in the afternoon, forewent television in the evening to listen and finished it the next day. The story was intriguing and well written, with lots of twists and turns that came together nicely in the end without being too convenient or contrived. Many of the old characters returned and new ones were introduced. A couple of the story lines took unexpectedly realistic paths without being disappointing as they were handled well. Sage moves on in Darke to reflect the ages of her characters instead of arresting their development as some might be tempted to do, but keeps enough of the surroundings intact to lend the books a sort of homey feel to them. She also obviously loves language and uses it to the fullest advantage and in keeping with "time" and feel of her books. Superb vocabulary, wonderful characters and a great story. Loved this one and can't wait for more!

    "Will leave you wanting more..."

    This latest installment of Septimus Heap has some unexpected twists and will not disappoint devoted readers of the series. It is interesting to see the characters grow and mature with each book and in "Darke" they are really coming into their own. What I find intriguing is how much responsability the characters are given at a young age and how the author has woven this into the time and setting of her story. I did miss seeing Aunt Zelda and Wolf Boy, though I did not miss Milo at all (we get a little glimpse of them in the end). Gerard Doyle once again gives a great performance. He is truly enjoyable to listen to. Unfortunately it will be another year before we are able to visit the Castle once again. We can only guess what Angie Sage has in store for us next!

    "Can't Wait For More!"

    I look forward to every single Septimus Heap book. I love listening to them. I think that Angie Sage is a master wordsmith and I get giggles over her use of language. I highly recommend these books. Every time I listen to them, I find myself driving very slow on the way home wanting to get more of the book listened to before I have to turn it off. In addition, Gerard Doyle is an excellent narrator. (Of course, I'm sure it helps with my narration that I am seeing Gerard Butler in my head when I listen to these books).

    I'm just really glad that Angie Sage hasn't decided to stop these books at seven - I know that I'll have Septimus around for a while.

    I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.

    "Gerard Doyle was off his game"

    I love the Septimus Heap series and was very excited for a new book. I love the progression of the story and very much look forward to the next one. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed in Gerard's narration in this book. He narrated the previous four books and was absolutely supreme. He did so many different and fun voices for all of the characters. A lot of that was missing from Darke. The voices weren't as distinguishable as they had been previously and that was a bit disappointing. However, it won't deter me from listing to this book dozens of time like I have the previous ones.

    "Excellent Read"

    This book is the first in an ongoing series of book, currently seven. It is an excellent read for young or old, and the imagination of the author makes it a fun story which you just don't want to put down.

    "Book six of a great series - never a dull moment!"

    Septimus Heap is a great listen, once you start with Book 1 you can't wait to listen to the following books. I loved each and every book in the series. Septimus Heap is the main character, he has a different adventure to protect his Magycal world in each book. He and his friends complete the quests, which are action packed - despite the suspense there are also lots of funny moments. In this last book the story is concluded, it has a great ending but I have to say I will miss Beetle, Septimus and little princess Jenna.
