One year after the events of book one, Septimus Heap has easily slipped into his new life as Apprentice to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard, the ever-dignified Marcia Overstrand. But the 'darkeness' still lingers as a menacing shadow follows Marcia constantly. Meanwhile, Jenna also has easily adjusted to her new life as Princess and ejoys the freedoms the Palace offers. But one day, when the mysterious and revengeful Simon Heap shows up, no one understands why he suddenly kidnapps Jenna. Septimus, agitated that no one believes him when he says Simon is now evil, goes off on his own to rescue Jenna from Simon's plot to return the evil Dom Daniel back to life.
In 'Flyte', Sage continues Septimus' story with her trademark offbeat humor and quirky magic. All the little details that readers have come to love about her writing are abundant in this sequel, and all old favorite (and not quite so favorite) characters make reappearences. However, the middle book in a trilogy always suffers from some problems. The adventure feels very loosely created, with no defenite climax. The characters wander around from place to place in the supposed big finale for the last hundred pages, meeting and overcoming new obstacles just like a video game. The villain Dom Daniel was defeated so quickly with about a hundred more pages to go, that I felt confused about what was the climax and what wasn't.Read more ›
It is an intriguing well written book with its quick, witty cast of characters and infinite magical imaginary capabilities.Magyk (Septimus Heap, Book 1)Physik (Septimus Heap, Book 3)
Although Marcia Overstrand ousted necromancer DomDaniel from his reign as ExtraOrdinary Wizard, spiders linger in the Tower, a sign that Darke Magyk remains there. In fact, an ominous Darkenesse follows Marcia constantly.
When Septimus and his adopted sister, the reinstated princess Jenna, visit their mother, their brother Simon charges up on a dark horse, still furious because he believes Septimus usurped Simon's rightful Apprenticeship. Simon swoops up Jenna and carries her away, despite her protests and Septimus's efforts to stop him.
As Simon kidnaps Jenna and heads toward the Badlands, Septimus pleads for help from others but no one will believe that Jenna is actually in true danger. So Septimus packs a bag and starts his quest to save his adopted sister from their evil brother.
Septimus meets up with his brother Nicko, who not only believes Simon has kidnapped Jenna but also has information about an ominous "dark stranger" asking questions about the young princess. Could it possibly be that DomDaniel, assumed to be dead, is actually alive after all?
Septimus is relieved when Nicko joins his quest to locate Jenna. The brothers travel into the forest to find the wild Wolf Boy, who they hope to recruit for his amazing tracking skills. However, all they have is a poorly-drawn map, and soon Septimus and Nicko are lost in a forest full of carnivorous trees, vicious beasts and evil spirits --- and night is falling.
Meanwhile, Jenna learns of Simon's plans for her.Read more ›
In this book Septimus is coming into more acceptance with his family and finding his place in their lives and as Apprentice to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard. The plot moves quickly, and while there are a few moments of predictability, in general it kept me guessing. I look forward to reading the third installment soon.
