Summary: It’s been a year since Septimus Heap discovered his real family and true calling to be a wizard. As Apprentice to ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, he is learning the fine arts of Conjurations, Charms, and other Magyk, while Jenna is adapting to life as the Princess and enjoying the freedom of the Castle.
But there is something sinister at work. Marcia is constantly trailed by a menacing Darke Shadow, and Septimus’s brother Simon seems bent on a revenge no one understands. Why is the Darke Magyk still lingering?
Review: The second installment of the Septimus Heap series is as good as the first or actually even better. Angie Sage has shown her indubitable skill once again in Flyte. I enjoyed the plot of this story very much, as it was devised exceedingly well. The depth of her characters has not faltered or faded in the least bit, in fact it is quite the opposite. Sage is truly a marvelous writer, successfully capturing the essence of fantasy and shaping it into a delicious epitome of creativity. Bravo! 😉
