Now that Septimus, Jenna, and Beetle are 14 years old, they have assumed larger roles in their Magykal world. Beetle is the Chief Hermetic Scribe of the Manuscriptorium and Jenna will soon be Queen, but Septimus is still battling the remnants of the Darke 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 continues to discover who he is and expand upon his Magykal power and skills. Fyre weaves together every character from the 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.

Yes, it was entertaining, along the lines of 'whatever happened to....' Not a page turner or earworm, but okay.
If they had listened to all the other Septimus Heap books, yes, why not if they have some extra time they need to kill and an extra credit to spend. If this was their first Septimus Heap book, no definitely not.
Narrator was fine. Steady performance in line with the other books.
No thank you. Unless it is the start of a new series, with new characters set in the Septimus Heap universe.
It should have been an epilogue to Darke, the true ending of the Septimus Heap saga. On its own it's not worth the trouble.
Audiobooks are better than radio!
I always enjoy a well read book. The reader makes all the difference between enhancing the written word or just making it a chore to listen to the book. Mr. Doyle brings the characters to life with his performance.
I truly enjoyed becoming reaquainted with characters that appeared in various books throughout the series.
The one near the end with Septimus. I shall reveal no more!
It feels like so many of my favorite series are ending :( I was so excited to get this audiobook because I love the world of Septimus Heap. I think Angie Sage has created an unique and creative magical world and her use of language is just terrific. She has some of the most intelligent humor I've ever seen in a book intended for this age of child. Sage assumes that the person reading her books is intelligent and never talks down to her audience. I love that. This is one of my top audiobooks so far this year. Gerard Doyle does a fantastic job narrating. I loved seeing Septimus and Jenna grow and take charge of their lives (even though they're just 15). At the end of the day, I was pleased where Sage ended the series (even though I still want more).
If you haven't started these books, I highly recommend them.
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%.
I would listen to it again there was a lot going on in the book and it is easy to miss something.
Septimus seeing himself in the house. That means new series is coming.
Gerard is one of the best vocal performers I have listened too. I don't think there is anything I wouldn't listen too that he reads.
We read and listen, sometimes together with the grand kids, at times as a couple. Occasionally someone would cheat and finish ahead of everyone. So please,Ms Sage, hurry with the next books already.
"This Book Is On Fyre!"
This book is brilliant, just what I've come to expect from Angie Sage. A memorable end to the Septimus Heap series.
It's hard to pick them out it's so memorable over all, but I'd have to say when Septimus made his decision between Alchemy and Magic, or when the ghost of Jenna's mother appeared to her daughter for the first time, and the flight of the dragon boat.
This is just as good as all his performances. Gerard Doyle is good at making characters come to life, keeping you interested in the story, and overall a good performance.
Yes this is not only a book you want to listen to in all one sitting, but the entire series is like that.
