There's Magic After Potter

If you’re a Harry Potter fan and you know you’ll go through Potter withdrawal when you finish the seventh – and final – book coming out July 21, then consider another seven-part British kid-wizard series: Septimus Heap. Three books of the series have been published since their debut in March of 2005, the first being Magyk, published by HarperCollins Children’s Books. The other two are Flyte and Physik. All are written by British author Angie Sage.

If you like your fiction in the form of movies, fear not. Warner Brothers Studios has picked up the rights to this series, according to
The Book Standard. Read all about it.

My wife, Kate, is a Potter fan but after the ordeal of waiting for
J.K. Rowling to finish seven books vowed never to get involved with an unfinished series again. Still, when I told her about the Septimus Heap series, she sighed and said, “I should take a look.” She does love ‘er wizards, ‘Arry.
