HARPERCOLL

The fifth book in the internationally bestselling Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage, featuring the funny and fantastic adventures of a wizard apprentice and his quest to become an ExtraOrdinary Wizard.

New York Times Bestselling Series

“In Sage’s most thrilling book yet, a new host of characters appear, giving the complex plot even more sparkle.” —VOYA (starred review)

“Once again, Sage’s tale combines humor, adventure, and inventive storytelling and is sure to please her many fans.”ALA Booklist

Syren is Sage at her best; it’s full of fun, adventure, humor, irony, friendship, loyalty and nonstop action” School Library Journal

In this epic Magykal installment, Septimus ends up on a captivatingly beautiful island, one of seven set in a sparkling sea. He's stranded there with his badly injured dragon, Spit Fyre, along with Jenna and Beetle. There are some strange things about the island, including a Magykal girl named Syrah, a cat-shaped lighthouse that has lost its Light, and an eerie presence that sings to Septimus—can he escape the persistent call?

Trouble is also brewing for Lucy and Wolf Boy, who have become entangled with some nefarious sailors at sea, and for Milo Banda, Jenna's father, who is harboring a mysterious treasure chest in his ship's hold.

Charismatic storyteller Angie Sage continues Septimus Heap's Magykal journey with more laugh-out-loud adventures, more enchanting charms and spells, and an ever-deepening understanding of the interior life of a young hero.

Syren is a really good book, though I don't know why Syren is italicized. It isn't like a magical name, it's just a spirit name.

Ms. Sage needs to write another book after "Darke" b/c that would finish the story line. this book was probably the best, besides "Flyte"

This book is easily one of the best in the series. A simple plot line made into another wonderful Septimus Heap book by Angie Sage. The ending of the book was put together well, and convinced me that this was the last book in the series [despite what happened to one character] !

Overall, a good and worthy read, five stars for sure!

Syren is about Septimus, Jenna, and Beetle getting stuck on an island, because Spit Fyre got struck by lightning.

Theres a "Syren" on the island, and it lures people and traps them...

That's all I'm going to say otherwise it will spoil the entire book.
