In this original enovella complementing the bestselling Septimus Heap series, DomDaniel returns in a hilarious escapade with the witches of the Port Witch Coven. The witches want DomDaniel's powerful Darke Toad ÂÂ and will go to ridiculous lengths to get their hands on it. But first, Simon Heap must get his master to the Port Witch Coven's door, which may require a bit more Darke Magyk ÂÂ and a much stronger stomach ÂÂ than he bargained for. Meanwhile, ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand has taken her young Apprentice, Septimus Heap, on a field trip to the Port. But what Marcia had hoped would be a fun yet educational outing quickly turns chaotic, for it slipped Marcia's mind that tonight is Hallowseeth ÂÂ the perfect night for Darke mischief to go unnoticed among the revellers.With Angie Sage's characteristic humour, beloved characters, and Magykal setting, The Darke Toad is a must-read for every Septimus Heap fan.
