    Another enjoyable book by Sage. I wasn't quite as enthralled with the second book as I was the first (some of the inventiveness and cuteness seemed lacking just a smidgen) but it was still a good story.I felt it continued the story and plot well, holding fairly true to the characters and flavor of the first book.I only have a few... not complaints... but rather things that weren't quite up to 5 stars:I'm still awaiting further explanation of the ...

    quirky, most definitely something new to the children's bookshelves. these books show a lot imagination and creativity. dark with light humour in between the nasty bits. i like the way angie sage also uses the phonetic spellings of 'magykal' words to show a distinction between the norm and the wizards. her World is full of adventure, surprises and humour.
  • Vonette
    I loved the first book, and rated it 4 stars because the characters were so three dimensional. I could really understand their motivations and believe in their personalities. This second book struck me as being put together more hurriedly than the first one. There were a lot of "holes" in the story (why do we never see into Marin's thoughts again after he leaves with Simon? Or even have any clear idea if he DID leave with Simon? why is so little ...

    What a fun series, I love how all the characters are so perfectly original and surrounded by a wonderful story that just keeps getting better with each book. It is fantastic how there is always new magic in so many avenues of Septimus's young life. Dragons, wolf boys, ghosts, magic all wrapped up in generations of splendid wizardry. Gerard Doyle's individual voices are so good that it is easy to forget that it is just one person. An excellent, cl...

    Review that I posted as a comment in May 2012 because I was a Goodreads noob back then. Now updated to show as an actual review:An enjoyable read :) Many of plot twist that didn't become apparent to me until just before I read them :P And at the back of the book with the "What happened Before..."s was fun to read :D It's nice to know how the minor characters came about, something you don't always get to know in books :)

    In the second book of the Septimus Heap series, Flyte we see Septimus as the apprentice to Marcia. This book is budding with a whole new lot of secondary characters, a lot of them, playing their role in the Magykal world. Then, there's the Dragon Spit Fyre to which I looked forward to and then there's Simon Heap, the betraying cousin of Jenna who ressurcts Dom Daniel, villain of the previous book. This book is not as quite as upto mark as the fir...
  • Chrissy (The Every Free Chance Reader)
    Why did I pick this book: I read this book because it is Book 2 in the Septimus Heap Series. When I read a series, I usually read the entire series, unless it is absolutely horrible. So far, this series isn’t horrible.Did I enjoy this book? Yes. I enjoyed it more than the first book, Magyk. (See my review of Magyk here.) I was more used to the “misspellings” and the capitalization . . . it still got a bit annoying, but as I said, I was used...
  • Avery (ThePagemaster)
    3.5 out of 5 StarsDespite a star drop from the first book, Flyte is still just as entertaining as Magyk was. Re-reading this series, you pick up on things that sped past you the first time.Flyte shows more magic(Magyk), Charms, spell books. And Dragons! In this one, Simon Heap, the oldest of the Heap sons, is still salty because Septimus Heap is now the Apprentice to Marcia Overstrand--but not him. So, he decides to go rogue(for reasons I won't e...
  • Becca
    I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one, maybe even a little bit more. I loved getting to know all the characters better, and being able to learn more about Angie's world. I, once again, fell in love with her writing, and I particularly noticed, and loved, how she gave everything a "voice". Even the stove and coffeepot in the ExtraOrdinary Wizard's kitchen had minds of their own. It was very fun to read those passages in particular.The ...
  • Kathy
    Flyte picks up Septimus' story a year later than when the first book of the series ended. It's really Jenna's story, too, as we learn more about the Princess. In this one, Simon Heap (Septimus' older brother) is the villian as he kidnaps Jenna, attacks the Dragon Boat and tries to bring back Domdaniel, the evil Extraordinary Wizard. Good continuation of the series and nice introduction to more characters that I expect we'll see going forward. The...

    This is the second in the young adult fantasy series, Septimus Heap. In Flyte, young Septimus takes off on his own to rescue the young Princess Jenna when his brother, Simon, kidnaps her. For no one will believe that Simon isn't just taking her for a ride on his horse. Turns out that Simon is incredibly jealous of Sep's position as the Assistant to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard and fully intends to oust Septimus by the use of Darke Magyk.Lots of fun, ...

    What a magycal read this was. I had read this years ago and it seems like I took so much more away from it this time. I am so very glad that I decide to come back to this series. I really loved visiting with some of my favorite characters again and meeting some new ones. Angie Sage adds the perfect amount of magic to this story. It allows her readers to become totally immersed in such a beautiful world where magic is real. And as I read it, I can...

    I've finally broken my streak...I actually liked this (book 2 in the series) the best. This has absolutely never happened to me before! I'm going to have to review some of my other long held beliefs...Anyway, this is an action packed book which continues the saga of Septimus Heap, long thought of only has Boy 412, but now the apprentice to the most powerful of all wizards. His newfound status, however, has some jealous, including his eldest broth...

    Here is the summary of Flyte and so Septimus Heap is cleaning his library. So he catches six small spiders and lets them out out of the window. Then Septimus finds a big spider and the spider bits his thumb and then Septimus got the spider and then went to Marcia and she gave him medicine and so then the medicine made his thumb worse. Septimus went to the doctor and had to stay in his bed and do nothing for a week. This is my summary of the book....
  • Cindy
    This was a bit slower/less awesome than the first book. It seemed like the entire book was just made up of people not believing anything Sep said, which was frustrating. At some point, someone somewhere has to believe you. I just didn't understand the blindness everyone turned to everything Sep said.It was nice seeing Sep visit his brothers and see the return of a few of the characters from book 1. Overall, I enjoyed it.

    first read June 17, 2008, second reading 2013, with my ten year old.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!Lori AndersonLori Anderson:The Store Lori Anderson:The Blog

    I know u are confused that I liked it, read it and gave up on. Actually I thought this book was really great even though I could not finish it. So that is why I gave it 5 stars!
  • BJ Rose
    What a delightfully enjoyable fantasy series!
  • Baige Bell
    This series is really cute and perfect for middle grade readers. It gets a bit frustrating when 98% of the adults are hapless idiots, but I suppose that's middle grade plot for you.
  • P.S. Winn
    Magic, charms and the incredible wizard Septimus Heap return in book two of a fun series that young adults and adults can love.
  • Richard
    7/10 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 J...

  • Michael
    Flyte, like it's predecessor, is a "boy wizard coming of age" story joined to a "girl princess coming of age" story. But if you've made it this far, you already know that Angie Sage somehow avoids falling into the same tired old tropes of books in either genre. For example, when our princess is kidnapped by a Bad Guye she is fully able to rescue herself, thank-you-very-much. When a magykal creature hatches and becomes bonded to someone in the sto...
  • Maria
    I like Flyte.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 enjo...

    Flyte by Angie Sage was an amazing and wonderful book. I really enjoyed the action and suspense that was in this book. Also, the word choice of Angie Sage was outstanding!In Flyte, a lot of interesting things happen. In the beginning, Jenna, the princess, is kidnapped by her brother, Simon. She discovers that Simon is planning to bring back the evil wizard, DomDaniel. Simon thinks that he will be DomDaniel's apprentice. Meanwhile, Septimius is de...
  • An Odd1
    "Flyte" (Septimus Heap 2) by Angie Sage is full of: so much imagination, I can only say - read it; and of frustration - disbelief by those supposed to be your nearest and dearest - I know the feeling. Nobody trusts our hero Sep (12ish?): that his eldest brother Simon, now 20 but acts 10, has kidnapped Princess Jenna, 12ish, that Ice Tunnels run everywhere beneath the Castle. Simon has the long-vanished true Flyte charm, can chase them, their Drag...

    Ok, I’m (surprisingly!) really enjoying this series! Normally I’m not a huge fan on middle grade books, but this is quality middle grade fantasy. And while it’s definitely aimed at a younger audience, it’s not too light or juvenile for me to enjoy it! FLYTE brings us more magic, action, ghosts, witches and dragons, and I might’ve liked it even a bit more than I did MAGYK. I’m not sure how, but as rats freak me out my brain has decided...
