Christmas wormsAs my handle and avvie say, I am a fan too - although with bits I like and bits I dislike.
Christmas wormsNo, not yet. When does it come, by the way?
Christmas wormsSeptimus is kind of bland most of the time. Marcia Overstrand certainly dominates the premises both from an In-Universe perspective and from a reader's perspective - so to speak.
Child of ChaosI read the first three ages ago. They were pretty good. I still have the first two, so maybe I should start rereading one of these days. I thought it was funny how they had a "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue for all the extremely minor characters at the end of each book.

C Ds of the first book now. I'm definitely liking it! Even after I finish this one, though, I probably won't dive into the rest of the series just yet. I tend to bounce around between a bunch of different series and genres, because I often find that reading a bunch of books in a row by the same author gets dull. I've also listened to Inkheart, Clementine, and Fablehaven on CD recently, but I'll wait a bit before continuing any of those series. Actually, I probably won't continue the Inkheart series at all. *sweatdrop*
Christmas wormsEh, I like Darke more as I am familiar about how such stories play out in RL.
So Warner Bros. is going to make a movie adaptation of Septimus Heap. You know who would make a perfect Septimus? Asa Butterfield. :3
I think my favorite is Fyre due to almost everyone who had a major part in the previous six books being Back for the Finale. I was a little disappointed that spoiler: Jim Knee literally Slept Through the Apocalypse (the Darke Domaine wasn't the end of the world, but it came pretty close), so I was overjoyed that he's a major character in Fyre. All in all, I felt that Fyre tied things up very nicely. They even got some Maybe Ever After pairings in (I admit, I have a pair of Shipping Goggles that I wear pretty often), such as Septimus/Rose, Beetle/Jenna, and (I think?) Marcia/Milo.

Christmas wormsMay I ask you to spoiler that? I have postponed the book until after the exams so that I don't get distracted.

Okay, I spoilered a lot out. I left the bit about Darke in there, because seriously, that's been out for like 2 1/2 years now. I'm really sorry about that! I know how much you want to headdesk after reading spoilers (I raged a lot after accidentally reading a big plot twist in Vision of Escaflowne)
Christmas wormsYeah, I did read Darke. The Jim Knee business looked a bit out of plot device land. Anyhow, out of curiosity, are there any fanfics out there?
Stick of the FallenI just finished Fyre yesterday. My two main complaints were that it took over half the book for the bad guys to show up and cause conflict, and that the bad guys sucked. In every confrontation, they never felt like a threat to the heroes. Julius Pike would have made a far better antagonist. Otherwise, I liked it. I had though Septimus and Syrah were getting together, but I suppose Rose is alright. Too bad Stanley didn't do much, as he's my favourite character. With Future Septimus, I thought for a minute that Simon was the ExtraOrdinary Wizard and we were getting the Ultimate Troll Ending.

"Oh great! Let's pile up all the useless cats and hope a tree falls on them!"
Christmas wormsBumping after some time. I just did reread Fyre another time - the settings felt a little surreal there. I have to echo what @20 said, by the way - the bad guys could have used some backstory.
I think the movie's been on hold for a while now. Also, don't they start out ten?
Christmas wormsWell, the first book starts out shortly after their birth, but yeah, they are 10 by the time the story proper starts.
WandererI've finished the first two books after getting introduced by reading half of the third (a leather-bound copy was used as a prop in a show I was in). It's fun stuff, but it's even more of a kid's book than the Harry Potter books were.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
