This is book 1 of the Septimus Heap series, which I have read all six of. It leans closer to the Narnia series than Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, because while there are continuing threads and cause-and-effect between the books, there is no overarching threat that unites it all. Somewhat more connectivity than the Narnia books, since they are continuous in time.( Collapse )
