New York Times Bestselling Series

“Terrifically entertaining. Fans of the first book will be delighted with this sequel to Septimus’s story.” —VOYA (starred review)

“Readers will find themselves quickly immersed in this imaginative world, moving from one well-crafted adventure to another at a suspenseful pace.” —School Library Journal

It's been a year since Septimus Heap discovered his real family and true calling to be a wizard. As Apprentice to ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, he is learning the fine arts of Conjurations, Charms, and other Magyk, while Jenna is adapting to life as the Princess and enjoying the freedom of the Castle.

But there is something sinister at work. Marcia is constantly trailed by a menacing Darke Shadow, and Septimus's brother Simon seems bent on a revenge no one understands. Why is the Darke Magyk still lingering?

Bringing fantasy to new heights, Angie Sage continues the journey of Septimus Heap with her trademark humor and all of the clever details readers have come to love.

This was purchased for my 10 year old son. He is an avid reader and liked the series very much. He feels that the children in his class that enjoy reading would also enjoy this book. It has a " Harry Potter " type of feel to it and like Potter , Septimus Heap would be liked by boys and girls . The only flaw that he mentioned was it was a little slow in parts . On a side note , for children that participate in the Accelerated Reader program , it has a value of 18 points.

Flyte... WOW!!! The followup to Magyk really makes you want to read the whole series! So do! Enjoy them, I know I have and will continue to love this amazing, touching series of the family of Septimus Heap, the boy otherwise known as Boy 412, but now Sarah Heap's son, or Marcia's apprentice. This book is a good one! Four stars is definatly a fair rating, though, because Magyk is much more amazing than Flyte. Continue to read The Heaps' stories! They will change your life!

For the second book in a series, this was suprisingly almost as goo as the first. The author was still able to put wonderful magyk and detail to the story. Not to mention the fantastix humor. Angie Sage has done it again. Flyte is a perfect sequel to Magyk. Great job Angie Sage! Keep it coming!

Book Title Flyte Main Plot Septimus Heap, who after 10 long years in the Young Army is finally realizing his place with Magyk, has seen something awful. His sister, the Princess Jenna, has been kidnapped... by her own older brother, Simon, who has turned to the Darke side! Now, if only he could get Marcia, Alther, and basically anybody to believe him! To track Jenna, Sep and boat boy Nicko Heap travel far and wide, where they meet a whole new cast of interesting characters. This is not the only thing going on in the Castle. Marcia has noticed that she is being followed by a Darke shadow, and has to collect some parts of a ShadowSafe from a crazy guy. Why is this book called Flyte? You will have to read it and see. Likes The climax is almost nail bitingly exciting. A sudden twist shakes things up. I also love the Flyte charm. Dislikes Milo Banda. Everything about him is weird. Especially his welcome. Sum Up A good book and the second in a great series in the tradition of Harry Potter.

I read the first book and now i'm hooked. This book is astounding I loved it with the twist at the end. I loved magic that is involved in them. I liked how they find a lost family member and how they get the very newest and most awesome pet in the world. And the long lost spell of...... well you've got to read the book for yourself. P.S.

Septimus Heap has been restored to his family and become the apprentice to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard, Marcia Overstrand. His parents, Silas and Sarah, have moved into the castle with their foster daughter, Princess Jenna. When Simon, Septimus' oldest brother, arrives on a Darke horse and carries Jenna off, no one seems to take this as seriously as Septimus does. He is determined to save his sister whether he has help or no.It's hard for me to sum up my reactions to rereads. I have both current and past ideas of the story so wrapped up together that it's hard to make head or tails of it. For example, when I first listened the story, I remember being really taken aback by the change in narrator, and the resulting change in every character's voice. Expecting that this time, and remembering odd bits of the plot, I was not as enamored of the story as before. I still like the characters, but I find myself getting more annoyed with the narration, which tends to add tangents and unnecessary background to the story such as how Nicko learned to swim in a passage discussing his work at the boathouse. While I still think it's necessary for me to reread the books in order to remember what's going on when I finally read Syren for the first time, I often remember plot points just before the story reveals them, which takes the edge off any tension. Still, a series I would recommend.

A good light read, if not slightly forgettable. The characters pull you in and you ride along with Septimus and Jenna as they try to save the people they love, and themselves, from the dark forces. Add a delightful new pet and the fun just keeps going. Who wouldn't want to fly?

The second book of the Septimus Heap series. Septimus is now an apprentice of the ExtraOrdinary Wizard, Marcia Overstrand. Simon Heap, now a Darke Wizard, kidnaps Jenna. When Septimus rescues Jenna, Simon uses the incomplete Flyte charm to chase after Jenna and Septimus. With the charm and Jenna, Septimus retreats to Aunt Zelda's. There, Septimus completes the Flyte charm, and gets his own dragon.
