Product Description

Amazon Review

Storytellers these days, it seems, cannot write a novel that begins and concludes in a single volume. Some stories, however, are just too gloriously delightful to try and cram into one book and they beg for more space to breathe, to be enjoyed and savoured. Angie Sage began her Septimus Heap sequence of stories with Magyk, and this refreshingly still-just-as-good sequel continues the story of Septimus with great skill and panache.

It's been a year since Septimus Heap, the seventh son of a seventh son, discovered his real family and true destiny to be a wizard. As Apprentice to ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, he is learning the fine arts of Conjurations, Charms, and other Magyk, while his best friend Jenna (the adopted girl who lived with his family for ten years until it was discovered that she was royalty!) is adapting to life as the Princess and enjoying the freedom of the Castle.

But, as is the way with all good fantasy stories, something sinister is still afoot. The evil necromancer DomDaniel may have been has been disposed of, but something Darke is undeniably stirring. A Shadow pursues ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, following her every move, growing stronger every day. Septimus realises the danger but, before he can act, Jenna is snatched, taken by the most unlikely kidnapper. Could it really be his jealous brother Simon who is responsible? Septimus must rescue his sister but does not, at first, realise the nature of the threat apparent.

This satisfying second volume, again stuffed with mayhem and thrilling adventure, confirms the immense readability of Sage’s novels and consolidates the reputation for her growing sequence of funny fantasy novels that should mean they remain popular with young readers for many years to come.

(Age 10 and over) --John McLay


"Those who have been waiting for Flyte will not be disappointed and are likely to return for more."--School Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
Septimus Heap, seventh son of a seventh son, has settled into his life as the Apprentice to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard. Formerly thought to be only an orphan boy serving in the Young Army, it was quite a shock to the Heap family when they discovered that Boy 412 was actually their youngest son, who they believed had died after childbirth. Now that Marcia Overstrand has taken Septimus back to the Wizard Tower as her Apprentice, Septimus is truly learning how to use the Magyk that flows strongly through his lineage.

Although DomDaniel is believed dead after the wreck of his boat, and, in fact, the end of the first book in the series saw his skeleton sinking to the bottom of the Marram Marshes, not all members of the Heap family are happy to have the prodigal son return. Simon Heap, the oldest of Silas and Sarah's sons, had always hoped to gain the apprenticeship to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard. When that goal was thwarted by the reappearance of young Septimus, Simon's anger turned to revenge. After rescuing the bones of DomDaniel, the evil Wizard, from a watery grave, Simon disappeared into the Badlands, much to the worry and horror of his family.

Nearly a year has passed, and Jenna, the Princess who will one day become Queen, is enjoying the quiet, peaceful life in the Palace. She has settled into her life on the Palace grounds, once again happy and secure. Nicko Heap has taken a job at the boatyard; the four wild Heap children are still living in the Forest with Wolf Boy; Septimus is learning the ways of Magyk. All is well until one day when Simon Heap, surrounded by Darkness, rushes onto the Palace grounds upon a black horse and kidnaps Jenna, taking her away to the Badlands.

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.

Format: Paperback
It would be extremely hard to write a book that was better than Magyk, and in this second book in her series, Angie Sage does not quite manage that feat. But all the same this is an extremely enjoyable story, which again mixes an off beat sense of humour with a wonderful tale of danger, deception, kidnappings, magic, friendship and love.

In this story, Septimus' eldest brother, Simon, is consumed by envy for the younger brother who he feels has stolen his birthright - to be apprenticed to the extraordinary wizard, and consequently he takes matters into his own hands to rectify the injustice.

The story is full of wonderful twists and turns, which leave you hankering after more of everything - except maybe Aunt' Zelda's cooking.

Format: Hardcover
Flyte continues where Magick left off, with Jenna returning to the castle to take her position as queen and Septimus heading to the wizards tower to take up his apprenticeship under the Extraordinary Wizard; Marcia Overstrand. The Evil Dom Daniel has mysteriously returned and so the heaps and their new friends must once again defeat him. The plot is generally very good and does indeed hold many twists and turns however they can be slightly transparent.

A great kids book that can be enjoyed by all. It is fast paced, gripping and wickedly funny. Sage has included the return of all the major characters including the hilarious message rat Stanley and the ever-grumpy Bogart. The second book in the Septimus Heap trilogy is just as good as the first this is funny tale of magic and intrigue that you will not want to miss. If you liked the first one then you will love this.
