In this fifth book in the Magykal series, 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.
I have the first 4 books. And as you can see below, this book came out in 2009. So t's been a while since I read the books, and it was a bit hard to get into the world at first. But then I started remembering bits and pieces, and it just drew me in, with all the things that were a part of it, all the little side plots, and how it all came together.
This book was really interesting, it expanded on some things like the ice tunnels, and it had old characters (dead and alive) who were introduced in previous books to come back, and it was just really great.
I loved this book, and once I past halfway, I really started reading it and really getting it read. It was a great book, and I hope you guys check out the series!
