The first book starts you off with an amazing beginning! It gets better an better as you read along! I couldn't put the book down.

Boy 412
This was one of the best books I've ever read! I'm only in fifth grade, too! this book made me feel like everyone has magyk and they just need to show it! my fave person in MAGYK was Boy 412 (a.k.a. Septimus Heap) my fave book out of the first two was FLYTE because of Spyt-Fyre! I encourage everyone to read this series!

Full of magyk and wonder. Very well written and full of unpredictable surprises.

Magyk is the best fantasy novel that I have ever read which is extremely well seeing that all I read is Magyk related. I think that it is the best book ever! I am looking forward to reading the next book.
#1 fan!!!

the 1 and only best book in the history of reading!!!
This is the best book I've ever read and I encourage Angie Sage to write more. I think that the book is creative,amazing,and a true 2 thumbs up novel!!! OBVIOUSLY IT IS MUCH BETTER THAN HARRY POTTER!!! If you have not read any of these books you are missing out on a lifetime. In conclusion...the book is a chunk of fun, fantasy, and in between them there is a sprinkle of humor!!!

This is the best book I have read in a long time. Amazing. Absolutely astonishing, it was just great.

Flyte is the best book EVER!!
Oh my goodness this is the best book ever! I loved the first one Magyk, but Flyte was even better! who ever reads this HAS to read the book!! it is really good. Jenna and Septimus have GREAT journeys together! This book is always exciting! I AM TELLING YOU READ THE DARN BOOK!!!
