Fans of Angie Sage's New York Times bestselling fantasy series, Septimus Heap, will be delighted with this digital original addition to the series: The Darke Toad, a 96-page novella packed with action, humor, and magic that will have any child or fan of such fantasy books as Fablehaven or Harry Potter laughing and asking for more!

DomDaniel returns in a hilarious escapade with the witches of the Port Witch Coven. In this tale that takes place between the stories told in Magyk and Flyte, the witches want DomDaniel's powerful Darke Toad—and will go to ridiculous lengths to get their hands on it. But first, Simon Heap must get his master to the Port Witch Coven's door, which may require a bit more Darke Magyk—and a much stronger stomach—than he bargained for. Is Simon up to the task?

Meanwhile, ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand has taken her young Apprentice, Septimus Heap, on a field trip to the Port. But what Marcia had hoped would be a fun yet educational outing quickly turns chaotic, for it slipped Marcia's mind that tonight is Hallowseeth—the perfect night for Darke mischief to go unnoticed among the revelers.

With Angie Sage's characteristic humor, beloved characters, and Magykal setting, Septimus Heap: The Darke Toad is a must-read for every Septimus fan.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Septimus Heap

The Bookbag

A few small strands of storyline (like Snorri and Alfrun, for example) appear in the text but do not develop until we reach what could be called the epilogue, when a series of paragraphs tells us what happened to them after the defeat of the Darke Domaine.
