I got this book thinking it was the first of its series. I didn't look at the spine until I had already checked it out. There was nothing I could do about it. And I was thirsty for another Magyk book, so I took the plunge.

As an afterthought I realize that this was a mistake.
This book is about the fabled egg of orm, I suppose it might be in the last book. But I wouldn't know because I haven't read it.
It begins with the sorcerer, Oraton-Marr's (or something like that), point of view. It wasn't very confusing because it introduced the characters well. And I didn't need to have read the first book to figure out what was going on.

Then it switches Kaznim. A young girl living in the desert. The Sorcerer steals her baby sister and threatens to drown her if anyone interfears with the hatching and binding of the orm.
I became fond of Kaznim. And therefore hateful to everyone else. I didn't even like Tod. And Septimus has aged terribly. Honestly! He steals from little girls and then chases after them? In the end Tod was able to redeem herself. But I never liked Septimus again. Perhaps I'd like him better if I'd read the first book. Who knows?

I am going to read the first book and then maybe I'll change my comment.

UPDATE
Reading the first and third books did not help me like Septimus any more.
