maap review-nya di hidden karena yang punya rumah masih malu ama "keki" review-nya disalip orang
*mondar mandir sambil ngedumel sendirian*
padahal gw duluan yang yang baca buku ini. trus gw kan dengan bangganya majang itu bukunya (meskipun pinjeman). sementara jeng roos (yang nyalip gw) gak majang buku nyaaaah *cemberut* trus ujug2 kluar aja review-nyaaaaah. emang pake mantra2 khusus yang bisa ujug2 kluar reviewnya. mustinya pan gw duluan yang beres kelar bacanya *masih mondar mandir kebingungan sambil ngusap2 perut* jangan2 jeng roos ini punya jimat magyk khusus "ujug2 tamat secepat kilat" neh... uh, ntar kalo gw baca flyte gak bakalan dipajang bukunya di currently reading ah, biar dia kaget.. ujug2 kluar aja reviewnya, huahahaha *devilish grin*

hmm.. koq jadi inget lagi lagu metal keren punyanya iron maiden yang judulnya "seventh son of a seventh son" karena tokoh utamanya (septimus) merupakan putra ketujuh dari putra ketujuh yang didunia sihir diyakini memiliki kekuatan magis yang hebat yang sangat diidam-idamkan kaum penyihir dan necromancer untuk dijadikan murid

Here they stand brothers them all
All the sons divided they'd fall
Here await the birth of a son
The seventh, the heavenly, the chosen one

Here the birth from an unbroken line
Born the healer, the seventh, this time
Unknowingly blessed and as his life unfolds
Slowly unveiling the power he holds

Then they watch the progress he makes
The good and the evil which path will he take
Both of them trying to manipulate
The use of his powers before its too late

Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son


eh.. malah ngelantur. sabar yak, pan udah disuguhin cemilan buat nunggu review-nya
gini.. ceritanya buat gw sedikit "kekanak-kanakan" (ato gw yg udah tuwir?). cukup menarik untuk sebuah seri pembuka dari 4 seri yang udah terbit. ceritanya imajinatif meski sebagian besar jalan ceritanya udah bisa ketebak dan juga karakter-karakternya yang lumayan bejibun. spells/mantra2 yang unik dan terutama kapal hotep-ra yang bener2 kereeeeeeen (setengah naga setengah kapal) karena bisa terbang. sumprit, gw pengen punya kapal kayak ginian *ngayal mode on*. moga2 musuh2 dibuku kedua lebih seram dan lebih sakti. atu lageeee, yang bikin heran koq semua yang baca buku ini perempuan sih? (dari semua tingkatan umur) uh, kayak baca chicklit aje. pada kemana laki-laki nya? *garuk-garuk*
buat fans HP silakan dicoba buku ini :D dan terutama tentu saja fans cerita2 fantasi.

" So ein wunderschönes Kinderbuch <3Vielen vielen Dank Sabrina dass ich es durch dich doch noch entdeckt und direkt gelesen hab! " said.

"I can not say that I didn't enjoy this book because I actually found it a very good read. I have to admit it was a little immature for me in places and I prefer my YA novels to be the older age of the spectrum.

I loved the characters and they were well written and engaging. You can clearly see how the characters will further develop through the books. I have to admit that I guessed the true identity of Septimus Heap very early on but I believe this was intentional. The reader knows a secret that the characters in the book don't.

I did however find the story a little slow in places and the fact that there was so many characters to keep track off meant that the story was slower as you introduced new characters.

Overall I think this book would appeal to a younger audience. I am not totally against reading further in the series but I will not be rushing out to buy the next ones.

" Magyk wasn't BAD, necessarily, it just really pales in comparison to so many other fantasy stories I've read. My main problem with it was the complete lack of a central main character. The series title, Septimus Heap, is supposed to be that main character. However, he doesn't, technically, show up until really late in the book.

Before that we jump between SO many different characters: Jenna, Silas, Marcia, Nicko, bad guys, good guys, and even boggarts, mice and a wolf. I mean those animal narrations are pretty funny, but it felt really unnecessary to me. And not having a central character to direct it all, it just felt way to jumbled. Add the fact that you meet a new character almost every chapter, introducing new viewpoints, personalities and opinions; I just starting not caring. I was never confused, persay, it IS a kid's book. It just felt like the author knew about her serious problem (aka lack of a hero), so she tried to throw in all these "crazy" characters to make up for it.

Story wise, it's just mediocre. Something about a seventh son of a seventh son born to take down the evil DomDaniel. It's not groundbreaking, we've all seen this before. That would have been fine, if I would have cared for the characters. And previously mentioned character problems really prevented that from happening

Reading on my nook, I was confused when I would happen across a word like, "Flyte" and it would be capitalized. I then found out in the actual book, those words are also bolded to show emphasis on Magykal spells and whatnot. The capitalization annoyed me, I couldn't even imagine the bolding.

It's exactly the same problem I had with Chuck Palahniuk's Tell All. I don't need you to point out something obvious to me, I'm not an idiot. And I don't even see how it helps kids, yeah you can put spells in bold and make them jump out at the reader, but what's the point? If you're reading the book you already know what the spells are, there's no need for it. I guess it just comes down to feeling like I was talked down to at times, and I don't enjoy that at all.

In the end, a cliched plot, kiddie characters, and a hilariously obvious twist all mean one thing: my Magykal *gag* journey ends here.

"Prvo da napomenem ova knjiga je pisana za relatiovno mladu populaciju, po mojoj proceni do 12 ili 14 godina starosti. Što znači da je jako ... naivna. Sa druge strane odlično je napisana. Drži pažnju, likovi su interesantni što je i dobto pošto je skoro ceo fokus na njima. World building je veoma slab, tek tolko da se dobije neka ideja a čak ni magični sistem nije previše objašnjen iako se jako puno vrti oko njega.

Nema dosadnih momenata, nema ekspozicije i svet se drži sopstvenih pravila što je uvek plus tako ako vam treba štivo za čitaoce u razvoju ovo je odličan način da ih privuče. I taman da budu spremni za Harija Potera :)

PS: da sam jedno 20tak godina mladji ocena bi bila pre oko 4 ili 5.

I enjoyed this despite the fact that:
a) It was a tad on the slow side.
b) It gives a really weird introduction to the world, magyk and everything else in general.
c) For the most part, nothing happens.


This series is in the “what to read after Harry Potter” lists and is the principal reason why I wanted to read it. While it’s a fun book, it’s certainly nothing like Harry Potter. I felt a little underwhelmed by it all. The world of the book and the magyk in it doesn’t feel very cohesive and well-defined to me yet. The explanations came when it was convenient and only then. The characters arrive at a cottage at a certain point in the story and they remain there for like, the next 60%.

I thought the characters were all adorable. The Heaps were a loveable bunch and so were Marcia and Alther and even the Boggart. The villain didn’t feel villainous to me so it was hard for me to take him and the ‘threat’ he posed seriously. What I did feel particularly interested by was Septimus’s role in all of this. I was not expecting him to be how he was. I guessed it after but did not expect it so that was new.


I would like the series to mature and darken a little. Overall, I feel it’s an extremely entertaining book but it barely scratches the surface.

“Let me fade into the air
Let all against me know not where
Let them that seeke me pass me by
Let harme not reach me from their eye”
