    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 magical world (though as it's only book two, I'm not too concerned). I think it's all there, it's just not entirely explained and I think it would be very interesting to learn.A few times I feel Sage has her characters act too young for the rest of their actions. Yes, the cast mainly consists of people under the age of 20, so it makes sense that they would act "young," but sometimes it seems a little out of place (but, not often enough for it to be distracting overall).Finally, (and yes this is super picky!), a few character traits were a tad annoying: i.e. how unbelieving the Heaps are to one of their son's actions, or how it appears that telling someone what to do firmly is all it takes to be a leader. I'm pretty sure that those weren't the intentions Sage had in mind - I'm guessing that she was trying to show more the undying love of a parent, and that leadership comes with maturity not age, but I'm not sure that it came off quite as well as some of her other messages. I was very pleased by some of the new characters and the growth of some of the others. I give Sage credit for not manipulating a plot to get her where she needs to go. She seems to have things well set up and a good idea of where the overall story needs to lead. The book isn't very predictable (happily) in most cases, and I was very curious to see how the story unfolded and it kept my interest to the end. I'm anxious to read the third book, so that's always a good sign.:)It's another nice fantasy story and it doesn't feel like a rehash of many of the other ones. Worth the read!:)****Review pending...'m quite curious to read the second book in this series. I hope the quality continues.

    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.

    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 mention given to the fate of the dragon boat at the end of the book? why doesn't it occur to Jenna to ask Septimus to fly her to Aunt Zelda's on his dragon rather than go to the rat office? why is so little explanation given of the identity of the shadow? why was that whole meaningless section about dragon droppings put into the climax of the story?) I imagine some of these issues will be expanded upon in the next book, but they still could have been handled better in this book so the reader does not feel that things are abruptly dropped in or skipped over without explanation. Also, the characters were not handled as well in this book. Simon is one-dimensional. It would have been more believeable for me if he had some ambiguity about what he was doing. There should have been some lingering feelings for his family that he had to struggle against. As it was, his character was so annoying that I actually wished the author would kill him off. It also seemed to me that his parents should have had SOME doubts about Simon's character, given his history. Instead, they seem to trust him blindly despite having many reasons not to. As a parent, I love my children, but I also know them well enough to recognize their weaknesses and faults. How did Simon's parents manage to miss such glaring ones?

    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, clean story for all ages that moves along at just the right pace to keep it captivating and exciting. Looking forward to the next book.

    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 :)

    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 explain, due to spoilers) by kidnapping Jenna. Septimus and Nicko adventure to save her and things ensue. Meanwhile, Marcia Overstrand has a "Shadow" following her around, causing emotional and physical strain on her, as well as those around the Wizard Tower.As I mentioned before, the Magic/Magyk is more focused in this series, showing off more spells and more charms that do certain things, like flying, reverse, identify, curses, etc. With Septimus and Nicko exploring to rescue Jenna, it opens the world more than the first book did, which mostly took place at Aunt Zelda's house.There were moments, also, where Flyte sets up for the third book and further; first, as a hint, then a little more obvious in some places, which fishtailed the story a little. But overall, it's still a thoroughly enjoyable series, devouring this 500+ page book in a matter of a couple of days.

    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 first one and I really miss the Marshes and the atmosphere there. The first half of the book is great, totally great but after it it begins to fade a bit. Simon can be considered from now on as a major character. Obviously, Angie Sage is an expert in character development and human anatomy and understanding and conveying the reader the emotions of young Children. I liked the captivity part of Jenna(The Chocolate Charm, especially) but after half the book it gets dull, though Septimus remains interesting. Also recruiting the Ex villain again just in the next book is not very cool. New charms, books, creatures, Magyk methods, Castle places, Characters are a major improvement in the series. Sage is very particular about parentage, in this book Jenna's father is revealed as Septimus' was in the earlier book. Mysteries keep unfolding every where and its really nice to see and experience TBS characters grow and improve their abilities. I hated the Dragon Boat Part and those misleading boat repairs. I loved the captivity, Shadow, Escape, Into the Forest, Discovering Boy 409 A.K.A Wolf Boy, Banishing Simon, Destruction of Dom Daniel Parts. Interesting and mysterious book. Strongly recommended to Magyk readers. I notice that Sage focuses many times on unnecessary points confusing the reader, especially in the early chapters, but still it was worth a 3.5 out of 5. Check the plot:- When Simon kidnaps Jenna, Septimus goes out to search for her. He is assisted in his search by his friend Beetle. But Jenna runs away from Simon's observatory in The Badlands and makes her way towards The Port. Eventually Septimus is able to rescue Jenna with Nicko's help from the Port but they are tracked by Sleuth, Simon's tracking ball.They make their way to the Marram Marshes where they take the Dragon-Boat from Aunt Zelda's cottage and fly her to the Castle. But they meet Simon, flying in the sky. Simon drops a huge Thunderflash on the Dragon-Boat and it drops over Jannit Maarten's Boatyard. Septimus, Jenna and Aunt Zelda are able to revive her through the Transubstantiate Triplet spell.Septimus is also in search of the long lost Flyte charm. He finds the separated charm and unites it along with the small arrow Flyte charm that Marcia had given him. Eventually he is able to fly and even warns Simon never to harm Jenna again. Also, the rock that Jenna gave him at Aunt Zelda's cottage turns out to be the egg of a dragon and eventually it hatches. Septimus absolutely adores the dragon and names him Spit Fyre. The dragon for some strange reason identifies Marcia as his mummy, much to Marcia's annoyance.Septimus also rescues Marcia by identifying the shadow that has been trailing her. He also finds out that the ShadowSafe Marcia is developing contains, unbeknownst to her, the bones of destroyed Necromancer DomDaniel, which, once reassembled, try to kill Marcia. With Septimus's help, Marcia is able to Identify him and he is once again destroyed.

    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 to it this time around.The story moved faster, and the characters were just as enjoyable if not more so. I really liked the scenes with the Dragon Boat. They were written in such a way that I felt like I was there watching the adventure unfold just like Aunt Zelda. I was also excited to meet the new characters: Beetle, Wolf Boy, and Milo Banda. They are all welcomed additions to this cast of characters.One of my favorite parts was when Sarah Heap told the ExtraOrdinary Wizard how it was going to be when she requested a visit from her son, Septimus. That scene just made me giggle . . . you don’t mess with the Mom. We see this same frank attitude from Sarah at the end of the book as well. Sarah is not a prominent character in this or the last book but I enjoy her.Would I recommend it? If you liked the first book, Magyk, then, yes, you should read this one.Will I read it again? I don’t think that I will read this series again for the sake of reading it. This may change when I read the remainder of the series. I will probably read it again when my kids are old enough to read it so I can discuss it with them as they read it.

    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 only thing that could be a negative was that this book did feel a little filler-y to me. Nothing really seemed to happen plot-wise. It was all more character growth, which I'm totally fine with actually. I think it may be why I prefer this book, slightly, to Magyk.But yeah, loving this series so far, and I can't wait to start reading the next one!

    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. These are nice books for young adult readers - pretty clean but dramatic.

    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.

    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.

  • Kathy Davie

    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, exciting, and scary adventures for both Jenna and Septimus with the ex-Messenger, now Secret Rat; escaping with the dragon boat; the new baby dragon, Spit Fyre; the Ice Tunnels; and, battling with Simon time after time.Zelda's help comes in very handy in unexpected ways while Marcia, the ExtraOrdinary Wizard, proves to be extraordinarily self-obsessed and unaware of anything that's happening around her. Although that's not to say that, Jenna and Septimus are necessarily bright in several of their adventures...with Simon on the attack, why on earth would they all ignore him when one of them is hurt. Surely with their existing experience at least one of them would have the smarts to keep on eye on Simon!?? Then when Simon is flying after them when they are on the dragon boat and Jenna uses the magnifying glass she stole from him when she was Simon's prisoner...and she uses it to great effect...why does she crumple face down to the deck when Simon goes on the attack? Why not keep using the magnifying glass?? Duhh...Except for a few places where the characters act, well, out-of-character, I enjoyed this installment of the series and although Sage has not provided any tension about the future, I am looking forward to what she cooks up with the hints she has dotted throughout the story.

    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 really feel like the magic is real in our world as well. Reading this, I also found myself wondering what it might be like actually having a dragon, or the ability to fly. This is one of the reasons why I love this series so much.In this story we revisit with all of our favorite characters. Septimus and his entourage must fight the evil that exists here. And Septimus must also come to terms with his brother Simon and his prospects of becoming an apprentice to his own Extra-Ordinary wizard. The story gives it's readers plenty of magical action and excitement. I look forward to moving on to the next installment, Physik.

    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 brother, Simon Heap. Simon aligns himself with the dark wizards and begins to reek havoc on Septimus' life and that of their adopted sister, Jenna, the Princess.

    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. ( only chapter #1) Izabella G.:)

    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 to picture messenger beavers rather than messenger rats (thanks, buddy!) but yeah, FLYTE also gives us more talking animals and various other magical creatures. Me, every time Simon Heap talks, thinks, breathes or is, you know, mentioned in this book:“OMG, WHY ARE YOU BEING SUCH A DICK, SIMON?!”I’ll definitely continue this series, it’s not mind blowing or anything, but it really is fun and entertaining!

    I gave this book a 4.5 stars, I think the book was extremely well written and had an enjoyable plot. I just don't think it was as good as the first book-which I loved! 'Flyte' was a very quick read and there was never a dull moment in the book, in all honesty the Septimus Heap series has to be one of my favourite fantasies. I particularly liked the dragon-Spit Fyre and the family rivalry between Septimus and Simon. I look forward to reading book 3-'Physik'.

    The book is quite enticing at the beginning but the action really dies down. Many of the plot twists and dramatic reveals are almost too obvious and the writing becomes boring and forced towards the end. There was also parts of the book that made absolutely no sense and was very hard to follow along to and could've used more explaining. The book might be enjoyable to those who like more older styles of writing but I couldn't really enjoy the book as much as I wanted to.

    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 Jenna and then the escape that ensues, and the world that Angie Sage has created and the glimpses of the magic system that have been on show provide plenty of positives. The characters are likeable and there are plenty of different strands of story to keep the reader’s attention. This is also a negative though as there doesn’t feel like there is a main plot on which to concentrate and rather just a number of short stories that are interlinked into the world. It is quite easy to compare this to Harry Potter with the underage wizard learning magic in a castle and trying to save friends and family from an evil plotter. Unlike Harry Potter though the story doesn’t flow and feel like there is a main plot line and focus for the story to develop. I also think that perhaps the time taken for me to read the 1st book, Magyk, and this one made me forget a number of things and characters which didn’t help me. Little things I had completely forgotten popped up and it took me a couple of pages for some sort of recognition to pop into my head.I will read the next in the series and hopefully the series will hit its stride and provide more insight into the magic of the world and also have a more central focus. Whilst not the best Young Adult books around there is plenty to work with. If you like this, try: “The Spooks Apprentice” – Joseph Delaney, The Wardstone Chronicles.

    Simon Heap ist auf die dunkle Seite der Macht zu DomDaniel gewechselt. Er möchte seinem neuen Meister helfen wieder an die Macht zu gelangen, damit er allen anderen beweisen kann das er viel mächtiger ist als Septimus. Sein erster Auftrag lautet die Prinzessin zu entführen, was ihm auch gelingt mehr oder weniger!! Nun ist es an Septimus und Nicko ihre Schwester Jenna zu befreien.Familie Heap ist wieder unterwegs!! Einer auf der bösen Seite, die Anderen auf der guten. Septimus begegnet auch endlich seinen anderen Brüdern, die allein im Wald leben und ziemlich verwildert sind. Hoffentlich kommen sie mehr in den nächsten Bändern vor. Septimus gewöhnt sich langsam an sein Leben als Magier und an seine Familie. Er trifft einen alten Bekannten wieder der ihm sehr viel bedeutet und findet einen neuen Kameraden, ich sag nur so viel groß, gefrässig, gefährlich und super niedlich und Sep ist seine neue Mama!!Ich bin total enttäuscht von Simon, er ist ein richtiges Biest geworden, so wie Draco Malfoy. Er ist ja so von sich eingenommen und er sollte ja der Lehrling von Marcia Overstrand, aber nein sein kleiner, gemeiner Bruder hat ihm ja alles versaut!! Hört Simon sich überhaupt selbst zu?? Marcia wollte ihn niemals haben und so toll ist er nun auch nicht. Ich hoffe er bekommt bald gehörig den Kopf gewaschen!!Fazit: Spannend, witzig und unterhaltsam das ist Septimus Heap "Flyte"!! Ich liebe den Schreibstil der Autorin!! Zu dieser Ausgabe bekommt man sogar eine kleine, niedliche CD, aber was drauf ist müsst ihr selbst entdecken!! Das Cover ist mal wieder der Hingucker!!
