In the Darkely fantastic penultimate book of this internationally bestselling series, Septimus and his friends find themselves attempting the impossible as Septimus begins his initiation into Darke Week.
Septimus is on the threshold of his fourteenth birthday, which falls on the shortest day of the year. While everyone celebrates and the Castle is lit with traditional candles, Septimus has greater concerns on his mind. He has finally reached the period in his Apprenticeship known as Darke Week. During this crucial time, he hopes to undertake the very dangerous mission of restoring Alther from Banishment, following the attempted invasion of the Castle of Syren. But while this preoccupies him, other Darke things are afoot in the Castle.

I’m back home now after a really great book tour. It was good to be there but it’s wonderful to be home now.
Today it’s cold and wintry, leaves blowing everywhere and getting dark already at four o’clock – perfect writing weather!
And I am well into writing again now – book six is on the way. Chapter six today. Tomorrow to Cornwall to see the wild sea…
Happy winter (or happy summer down in Oz)!
