Waiting On Wednesday: Darke

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is...

Septimus Heap, Book Six: Darke
by Angie Sage

Releases on June 7, 2011

We're just a week away from the return of Septimus Heap.  Darke is the 6th book of Angie Sage's Magykal series. 

Septimus has a special place in my heart.  Check out my thoughts of the series on my About Me page.

Description from Amazon:

In the sixth book of the Magykal series, Alther Mella has been Banished, a Darke Domaine engulfs the Castle, and a Darke dragon is on the loose. Septimus Heap must use all of his skills to save the Castle and the Wizard Tower from destruction: He must enter the Darke. But he cannot do this alone. With the help of Jenna, Alther Mella, Marcellus Pye, and Septimus's estranged brother, Simon Heap, Septimus and Marcia Overstrand battle the spreading Darkenesse. Will Septimus succeed in protecting his Magykal world?

Written with Angie Sage's characteristic humor, Septimus Heap, Book Six: Darke is a compelling fantasy adventure filled with surprises, thrills, and laugh-out-loud moments. Readers will revel in the action-packed story as they realize the wisdom of Magyk—that all things are meant to be part of a living whole.

Check out the Official Septimus Heap Blog for updates and some awesome illustrations from Darke.
