    "A great book"

    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.

    "One of the best series in the world"

    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.

    "great book!"

    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!!!

    "Phenominal Story"

    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.

    "Took awhile to get into"

    I eventually found this story entertaining. It started a bit slow, but looking back you needed to have all of that detail to enjoy the rest of the story. Fantastic performance by the readers!

    "Inventive children's book"

    The story is refreshing if lacking in complexity.

    Annoyingly loud music between some chapters makes it less good for listening in bed.

    Enjoyable in general.

    "Undeniably charming story"

    Though there were parts of the story that I felt were over-described and under-described respectively, this first book of the Septimus Heap series had an utter charm that was difficult to criticize. Kids will adore the book for sure, and adults who appreciate whimsy and wry humour will forgive the predictable storyline and fall into the journey. The narrator's voices are pleasantly rural for the most part, making for a distinctive and interesting narrative. Overall, an easy and enjoyable indulgence of a book.

    If you could sum up Magyk in three words, what would they be?

    Very well read


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a fun story, with interesting characters and a wonderful performance.


    What does Allan Corduner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I found his character voices great fun, particularly Marcia Overstrand and the Tom Jones sound-alike Alther Mella!

    Story
    "Funny and unpredictable"

    I really love this series of books. It's a great mix of fantasy with humour. The plots are creative and unpredictable - one does live in hope that the good will end well, but it is far from obvious how they will get there. I think Angie Sage has done a brilliant job of carving out a unique inch in a crowded market of the fantasy/ magic genre.
    Magyk is a great start to the series. It is full of suspense and little funny details. I especially liked the character of Septimus and the way he is gradually revealed, but all the characters are interesting.
    The reader for this is good - nice to listen to, good differentiation of characters.

    "Good fantasy series with lots of humour"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My 8 year old son has a voracious appetite for fantasy stories and the Septimus Heap audio books are currently keeping him happy.

    I like the fact that they are more light-hearted than other books in this genre, there is still some violence but there's also a lot of humour.

    I have and this one is the best.

    Story
    "It's Magykal"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Magyk to, and why?

    I'm not sure I can compare it to anything else because it's rather unique.


    What about Allan Corduner’s performance did you like?

    Allan Corduner makes unique voices that are very recognizable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    If you only get one audio book this year, get this one.
