I am not always sure what to read so I would be grateful if you could leave comments below giving me some recommendations. I like Fantasy books with a little bit of humour in the them. This is not a very big post I, but as I say I would be grateful if you could leave suggestions below if  you have read a good book and you would like me to read it. If I enjoy it, I will do a book review on it and give you a shout out :)

Darke by Angie Sage

Septimus Heap, extraordinary apprentice is about to enter his most dangerous week yet. You might think he has gone through quite a lot already, but nothing can compare from what he is about to face, and what he is about to face is... his Darke Week. But while he is preparing, a powerful force is growing in the castle, wreaking havoc, and smothering every light in it's path... and to make things even worse, Marcia has accidentally Banished Alther to the Darke Halls. Can Septimus and crew get rid of the powerful Darke force, and find and defeat the culprit, and rescue Alther, and pass Septimus's Darke Week as well! Find out in this magical (or should it be magykal?:) ) adventure in the 6th (but no worse!) book.

Syren by Angie Sage

In the 5th book of the Septimus Heap series, Septimus, Jenna and Beetle have found and rescued Nicko and Snorri. All Septimus has to do is fly back with his dragon Spit Fyre, collect everyone and fly back to the castle. Simple right? Wrong! When Septimus arrives, he discovers Jenna's Dad (Milo Banda) has arrived and Jenna has been rather spoiled. After a couple of days, Sepitmus can stand it no longer. He gets on Spit Fyre, along with Jenna and Beetle who decided to join him, and flys away, but Septimus has set off with a storm coming in. Before long, Spit Fyre is struck by lightening and goes hurtling down towards a mysterious island. When he climbs off, Spit Fyre is badly injured. Not only that, the island has a mysterious presence that calls Septimus's name. There is also a mysterious lighthouse with cats ears. Apart from the island being strange, it is also very beautiful.
Meanwhile, Lucy, Gringe and Wolf Boy have become mixed up with an evil skipper who is a servant to the pure evil Tertius Fume,and some murderous crew
Join Septimus, Jenna, Beetle and many more characters in this exhilarating book, that once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down. (that's why I read it in a week!)

The Boy Reader rates this book 5 starts *****
