A powerful necromancer plans to seize control of all things Magykal. He has killed the Queen and locked up the ExtraOrdinary Wizard. Now, using Darke Magyk, he can create the bleak and sinister world he desires.
But the necromancer made a mistake. A vital detail he has overlooked means there is a boy who can stop him – the only problem is, the boy doesn’t know it yet.
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.
Septimus Heap has been flung 500 years into the past. Who will stop ghostly Queen Etheldredda’s deadly plot now that he has gone?
What Septimus doesn’t know is that his friends are already travelling back in time for him – heading straight into the clutches of the living Queen, who is far more diabolical than her ghost.
Septimus Heap needs to find the sinister place where all Time meets.
He must rescue two friends stuck in the past, and Time is literally running out.
But Darke Magyk tricks Septimus into accepting a dangerous Queste – now time is running out for him too.
Septimus Heap is stranded on a remote island with a badly injured dragon.

Septimus needs the help of his friends and some powerful wizards to try and stop the Darkeness from spreading – but they might be too late.
