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.

    This book was amazing. I read it quite a long time ago so I don't exactly remember the story but I do know it was really good and every body should read it.

        Magikal and darke, this book really pulls readers into the book itself! Actually, if Septimus was real, I might have had a small crush on him. Well, just kidding! :) I prefer Spit Fyre better.
