Marvelous Middle Grade Monday - Darke

Marvelous Middle Grade Monday  

Shannon Whitney Messenger decided it was time to give middle grade stories the attention they deserve, and "Marvelous Middle Grade Mondays" was born.   
Darke
by Angie Sage 


Goodreads Blurb:
Angie Sage's Magykal series continues in frantic, high-spirited fashion in this latest number. To save the Castle and the Wizard Tower from certain destruction, Septimus Heap wades into the Darke to battle evil; but he isn't alone: Jenna, Marcellus Pye, Alther Mella, Marcia Overstrand, and even Septimus' problematic brother Simon assist in the fray. A nice mix of action and wit.
I have loved the Septimus Heap series from the very first book and this one was no different. If you haven't read these yet, get started! And if you've been waiting for book six as long as I have, you won't be disappointed.
*** Others who can be counted on for a great MMGM review each week: ***
This week, sweet Lenny Lee has posted his first MMGM review--and it's about Hilary Wagner's sequel to Nightshade City, THE WHITE ASSASSIN. Hop over and say hello to our sunshiney friend!!  
 Happy Monday!

I love the cover as much as I love the blurb!! Thanks for sharing! I'm definitely adding this one to my TBR pile.

I wish that I was young enough to truly appreciate middle grade fiction. When I read it now, it seems too juvenile. Ah well...not the first time that I've wanted to turn back the clock and it won't be the last either. For the record...this looks like an enjoyable book.

Excellent cover that hooks me and great blurb that drew me in! Thanks for another excellent recommendation.

i haven't read these yet. I eye them in the store, but something stops me from buying them. Since I respect to your recommendations, I must stop that!

By the way, I bought a book based on one of your middle grade Mondays a couple of weeks ago.

I read three in that series and got sidetracked with something else. I'll have to get back to it!
