Septimus Heap Book Two:  Flyte

Angie Sage

Katherine Tegan Books, an Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, 2006


Flyte is the second of the Septimus Heap series; he is a year older and has been an Apprentice to Extra-Ordinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand during that time. Jenna, the Queenling, is getting used to being a princess and living in the Palace with her parents, Silas and Sarah Heap. In this book we are introduced to some new secondary characters and catch up on the ones in the previous book. DomDaniel is still a part of the picture but I will not say how.

Major Characters:

o   Septimus Heap    

o   Jenna Heap

New Secondary Characters:

o   Wolf Boy, long lost friend of??

o   Thunder, a beautiful and fast horse

o   Spit Fyre, Septimus’ new friend

o   Jannit Maarten, boat-yard owner

o   Billy Pot, lawn guy

o   Una Brakket, creepy housekeeper

o   Professor Weasal Van Klampff, absent-minded professor

o   Beetle, Septimus’ best friend

o   Milo Banda, mysterious stranger

Septimus and Jenna come up against their brother Simon who is intent on getting rid of both so he can become the Extra-Ordinary Wizard’s apprentice.  He takes Jenna for a horse-back ride but Septimus is suspicious and tries to enlist the adults around him to do something. They don’t pay him any mind and he takes matters into his own hands. Excitement ensues, danger is around every corner and Magyk is everywhere. Septimus also learns the ancient art of Flyte in ways even he can’t imagine.

Flyte is funny, imaginative, exciting and a great read. This is the third time I’ve read it and it is even better than it was the other two times. It is a definite that I will read it again!


5-paw rating for Magykcal excellence and Flytes of fancy!!

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your website in internet explorer, would test this IE still is the market leader and a good portion of people will miss your great writing due to this problem. kckabedbebedegbb

      Thank you for your comment. I closed Google Chrome (what I use) and pulled up site in IE but saw not problems with it. Maybe you can elaborate on issues with IE? I am not technically savvy but I know people who are! Thanks again.
