These books are addictive! I won't add more than I had a "woah!" moment when I saw the picture the illustrator had drawn for Marcia Overstrand -- I'd pictured her all along as an older, heavier wizard! Boy was I wrong!
Cool book, great series -- on to book three!

Flyte is a fun sequel. The emphasis on the importance of family is what I liked the most in here. See, Septimus' oldest brother Simon is the villain. Even if Simon tried to "indirectly" kill him a few times, Septimus chose to spare his brother's life in the end. Now, isn't that nice?
I got a lot of laughs while listening to the audiobook. Nico's the most entertaining character! Besides Septimus, his rants and banters are the most enjoyable. And the spells are delightful, especially t ...more
The 2nd outing in the Septimus Heap series and it continues a year after the first book following both Septimus and Jenna. It was an enjoyable read without ever really getting to the stage of being hard to put down. It never got into top gear and the plot meandered a little too much for my liking which kept the overall rating down.
There are plenty of enjoyable things going on in this book , the most enjoyable of which was Simon kidnapping Jenna and then the escape that ensues, and the worl ...more

This book is definitely better than the first Septimus Heap book, its action is much faster, and the plot is more unexpected. I think people who like Harry Potter will definitely love this book too. The two series have a lot in common, but they are both irresistible.

Flyte is yet another inventive, funny, and cute book from Sage. I loved the introduction of Spit Fyre and the return of the Dragon Boat. The magic is, of course, Magykal and lovely and oftentimes funny. I like the ghosts and the way they work and the way people react to them.
I often found myself frustrated when a character did not believe or went against another character, but I consider that a good thing; it means that I’m getting involved in the characters and am connected with ...more

it must be here. they can't have eaten that... i dunno, Nik, what do they do?'
I'm sure we all wish that, Sarah," said Marcia sternly. "But unfortunately he has progressed rather further than the silly stage. Evil-minded-scheming stage is more what I would call it.”
