Who is Septimus Heap? A lost child? An ordinary hero? A powerful wizard? The Magyk begins here.
The first book in this enthralling new series by Angie Sage leads listeners on a fantastic journey filled with quirky characters and magykal charms, potions, and spells. Magyk is an original story of lost and rediscovered identities, rich with humor and heart.

"Deliciously spellbinding." (Kirkus Reviews)
My wife highly recommended that I read this book and I am glad that I did. The story was amazing and the narration was great as well. I can't say enough about this book, and I can't wait until the next book in the series is released.
I really like this book I can't wait to hear what happens next. Some of the people are frustrating but it was a great book over all. Even my kids like it.
I will usually finish a book. I'll suck it up and get to the end, but I couldn't do it with this one. When the author puts in so much effort to make town walk seem like an epic journey (so much so that the protagonist is wondering how her mother is doing...as compared to 20 minutes ago) I have to bow out.
I have listened to this audiobook lots of times. It is my favourite. I really like the characters and the reader. It is fun to listen to this while you play with your toys. It is very fun. What's great about this story, is that it is a series and it doesn't end quickly. Even when the series is done, I will be listening to them again and again.
This book was great! Even though it is a children's "chapter" book, it's a fun book for adults too. The story is engaging and the characters have personality - and the narrator is amazing!! He really brings the story to life. He does great voices for the characters who need them and his "singing"... Too funny! I'm thinking that I'll wait for the sequel to be recorded rather than read the book - if the narrator is the same. WONDERFUL!!!
I really enjoyed this book. As a Harry Potter fan I did notice alot of the 'borrowed' names, but for me it didn't hinder the story but made it feel familiar.
I really enjoyed the many characters in this story however, there are many unanswered questions which have left me longer to start the next book.
inconcistencies in the story. lots of orattle about nothing. no logic regarding the magical system. 12h book. 2 hours (tops) worth of story. I wouldnt even recomend this to children, as there are so much better childrens fantasy out there.
"Facinating, Good Storyline"
Yes, because it has a good story.
The dragon boat
I have and this one is the best.
I liked how a soldier became the extra ordinary wizard apprentice.
I would recommend this audio book to anyone. This is the first great story in a series of great stories. Angie Sage has created a world full of Magyk, ghosts, princesses, witches, and everything else you can imagine. The audio performance is brilliant and really makes this story come to life.
I'm not sure I can compare it to anything else because it's rather unique.
Allan Corduner makes unique voices that are very recognizable.
When Septimus is finally reunited with his family at the end, finding out who he is, and where he's from, and why he spent all his life in the Young Army.
If you only get one audio book this year, get this one.
