Student Saturdays: Syren - Angie Sage

Publisher:  Bloomsbury
Pages:  628
Student Reviewer:  Lauren

Syrah Serra was a wizard apprentice that was "possessed" and was stuck on one island for 500 years.  Septimus Heap is the wizard apprentice that is still in training and is the latest wizard apprentice.  Marcia Overstrand is Simon's girlfriend.  Simon is Septimus's big brother.  Miarr is a cat that protects the lighthouse.  Wolf boy is also Septimus's best friend.  On the 7 islands, the islands that possessed Syrah.  The middle of the ocean, Lucy and Wolf Boy were trapped by pirates.  The Ice Tunnels, the jinn tried to take over the castle.  The Wizard Tower, where Septimus and Marcia live.  I would recommend this book to people who like fiction, fantasy, action and adventure.  One rainstorm can cause dramatic things to drive out of their right places.  This book was a very excellent book.  I got so attached to it that whenever I took it out to read I would have to force myself to put it down!  When Lucy, Wolf Boy and Miarr were hiding in one of the rooms of the lighthouse so that they wouldn't get shot, reminds me of when I was little and played hide and go seek tag with my friends.
