If you’ve never experienced the incredibly adventurous world of Septimus Heap, the boy who is the seventh son of a seventh son who having discovered his real family and true destiny to be a wizard goes off on some wild and often dangerous adventures. Here in the 5th one of the series, there are sinister goings on, on the remote island that Septimus, his dragon and one or two of his friends have been stranded on.

Synopsis

Septimus Heap: Syren by Angie Sage

In the fifth book of this Magykal series, Septimus and his friends find themselves on an island whose secrets are as dark and dangerous as its inhabitants. Septimus Heap returns to the House of Foryx with Spit Fyre to pick up Jenna, Nicko, Snorri, and Beetle. But the journey home does not go well and when Septimus and his friends are caught in a storm, Spit Fyre crashes into the Rokk Lighthouse. They are rescued by the lighthouse keeper who is disturbingly sinister, and who has an equally sinister cat. And all the while, Septimus is trying to fight the strange pull he's feeling to the island and its mysterious secrets.
