Description

In the sixth book of the Magykal series, Alther Mella has been banished, a Darke Domaine engulfs the Castle, and a Darke dragon is on the loose. Septimus Heap must use all of his skills to save the Castle and the Wizard Tower from destruction: He must enter the Darke. But he cannot do this alone.

With the help of Jenna, Alther Mella, Marcellus Pye, and Septimus's estranged brother, Simon Heap, Septimus and Marcia Overstrand battle the spreading Darkenesse. Will Septimus succeed in protecting his Magykal world?

Written with Angie Sage's characteristic humor, Darke is a compelling fantasy adventure filled with surprises, thrills, and laugh-out-loud moments. Listeners will revel in the action-packed story as they realize the wisdom of Magyk - that all things are meant to be part of a living whole.

Will leave you wanting more...

This latest installment of Septimus Heap has some unexpected twists and will not disappoint devoted readers of the series. It is interesting to see the characters grow and mature with each book and in "Darke" they are really coming into their own. What I find intriguing is how much responsability the characters are given at a young age and how the author has woven this into the time and setting of her story. I did miss seeing Aunt Zelda and Wolf Boy, though I did not miss Milo at all (we get a little glimpse of them in the end). Gerard Doyle once again gives a great performance. He is truly enjoyable to listen to. Unfortunately it will be another year before we are able to visit the Castle once again. We can only guess what Angie Sage has in store for us next!

Wonderful

After having been a bit disappointed in Syren, I'm glad to say that I thought Darke was one of the best yet. It took me less than 24 hours to finish the whole book. I started in the afternoon, forewent television in the evening to listen and finished it the next day. The story was intriguing and well written, with lots of twists and turns that came together nicely in the end without being too convenient or contrived. Many of the old characters returned and new ones were introduced. A couple of the story lines took unexpectedly realistic paths without being disappointing as they were handled well. Sage moves on in Darke to reflect the ages of her characters instead of arresting their development as some might be tempted to do, but keeps enough of the surroundings intact to lend the books a sort of homey feel to them. She also obviously loves language and uses it to the fullest advantage and in keeping with "time" and feel of her books. Superb vocabulary, wonderful characters and a great story. Loved this one and can't wait for more!

Can't Wait For More!

I look forward to every single Septimus Heap book. I love listening to them. I think that Angie Sage is a master wordsmith and I get giggles over her use of language. I highly recommend these books. Every time I listen to them, I find myself driving very slow on the way home wanting to get more of the book listened to before I have to turn it off. In addition, Gerard Doyle is an excellent narrator. (Of course, I'm sure it helps with my narration that I am seeing Gerard Butler in my head when I listen to these books).

I'm just really glad that Angie Sage hasn't decided to stop these books at seven - I know that I'll have Septimus around for a while.

classic good vs. evil battle

Loved this continuation of the life of Septimus Heap. Book 7- Darke was a suspenseful classic good vs. evil battle. Really grabbed my attention compared to some of the prior books in the series. Most days did not want to have to stop listening it was so good.

very nice story, but underwhelming speaker

the reading sounds nearly robotic in places. however, it's a truly charming story, and after a while you forget the darting tone
