Enter the world of Septimus Heap, Wizard Apprentice. Magyk is his destiny.
Necromancer DomDaniel has been defeated. His Darke ship burned and sank, taking its evil master with it.
But later that night, a fair-haired boy rows a canoe to the place where the ship went down. He waits, and then out of the water rises a skeleton. It climbs into the canoe.
DomDaniel is back
– with a vile plan for revenge. And now he has such an eager accomplice, anything is possible.
