Carter is reviewing one of his favorite reads from our library
Magyk by Angie Sage
Sudden spells cast into the night.
A thunderflash the light is blinding.
The shockwaves knock me down, and the noise breaks the quiet of the night.
An assassin cremated with only a thought, run! Flee! Save the princess!
The book is very detailed and every detail has a place in the story but is still very whimsical with hidden jokes and enhanced humor that is hard to understand if you haven’t been interpreting everything you read and going over confusing details the book is definitely interesting and wears its heart on its sleeve in regard that it has clear emotions, themes, and details.
Now for a short description of the book: a wizard family has born a seventh son of a seventh son and he has died at birth but the details of the death are mysterious and now there is a plot to kill the queen and her daughter the princess with twists and turns it follows the life of the heap family and the princess closely.
To summarize it is a good book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
