Septimus Heap is a series of seven books featuring a protagonist of the same name. The series follows the adventures of Septimus Heap who, as a seventh son of a seventh son, has magical powers. After he becomes the apprentice of the ExtraOrdinary Wizard, Marcia Overstrand, he starts his studies for seven years and a day to become an Ordinary Wizard (or maybe an ExtraOrdinary?).
His adventures take place in a fictional world full of secrets and mysteries, a world where rats are messengers and can speak, a world where spells are common and where the dark forces are trying to penetrate. MAGYK, FLYTE, PHYSIK, QUESTE, SYREN, DARKE and FYRE are telling his and his friends’ adeventures in this magykal world.
The books are published in the United States by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, in Canada by HarperCollins Canada, and in the United Kingdom by Bloomsbury Publishing.
The illustrations are realized by the amazing Mark Zug, who also worked on the companion book of the series, THE MAGYKAL PAPERS.
