In the book Magyk by Angie Sage, nothing is as it seems. When the boy Septimus Heap is lost in a hospital mix-up as a boy, his family was devastated. Then, they found a little girl the same age as their lost son and took her in. They didn't realize that the queen of the land had just died, and that her daughter, the princess, was the child they had just taken in. In a world filled with magic, Septimus was to become one of the most powerful people that ever lived; he was the seventh son of a seventh son. Anyways, Septimus was raised to fight (he became enrolled in a version of our 'army') and trained hard with a bunch of other homeless boys. Soon, on an ill-fated mission, he will discover his real origins and break free from the terrible and uncontrollable destiny that lays in wake of him. Only when the Heaps, Jenny the missing princess, and Septimus's lives intertwine to prevent the greatest evil ever known do things ever start to resolve themselves, loose ends tie up, secrets are unearthed, and the family destroyed get reunited.
This is an amazing read that is truly inspiring and outlandish. I think that this is one book everyone should own.
