“Readers will find themselves quickly immersed in this imaginative world, moving from one well-crafted adventure to another at a suspenseful pace.” —School Library Journal

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?

Bringing fantasy to new heights, Angie Sage continues the journey of Septimus Heap with her trademark humor and all of the clever details readers have come to love.

Editorial Reviews

Following the events of Magyk, Septimus Heap continues his apprenticeship with ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, and Jenna is enjoying her new life as a princess. But something seems amiss; does the Darke Magyk still linger in this royal preserve? This installment of the exciting adventure series features a few new characters, including a memorable dragon.
Publishers Weekly
The second book of the Septimus Heap series, Flyte by Angie Sage, picks up one year after the launch title, Magyk. Here, Septimus is apprenticed to Marcia Overstand, the ExtraOrdinary Wizard who switched him with Jenna at birth in order to protect him, and Jenna is enjoying life as a princess-until the Darke Magyk threatens everyone's sense of security.

A year has passed since the Heaps have discovered that their seventh son, Septimus, is alive and well. But the family's joy is not shared by oldest brother, Simon, who sees Septimus as a fraud and upstart who has taken the position of Apprentice to the ExtraOrdinary Wizard Marcia Overstrand, which Simon thinks should be his. So while Septimus learns Magykal Charms, Simon turns to Dark Magyk to overthrow both Septimus and Marcia. He begins by returning to the Castle to kidnap Princess Jenna. Jenna uses her own wiles to escape Simon, meeting up with Septimus as he searches for her. They complete their journey to the Dragon Boat, which Jenna must visit each MidSummer Night, but Simon pursues with his newfound Flyte ability, determined to wreck the Dragon Boat. Septimus must fly the Dragon Boat, sled through ice tunnels, and wrest Flyte from Simon in order to save Marcia Overstrand, the Dragon Boat, and Jenna. This novel is a delightful continuation of the Magykal capers begun in the first of this series, Magyk (Katherine Tegen Books/HarperCollins, 2005/VOYA February 2005). Although the book is written for younger Harry Potter fans, older students and adults can enjoy the series, with its quick pace, humor, and clever cast of characters. Sage is clearly following in the footsteps of other fantasy masters, echoed in twists and turns of the tale that include Septimus's stone from Jenna hatching into a dragon (a la Paolini's Eragon), but the story is terrifically entertaining. Fans of the first book will be delighted with this sequel to Septimus's story.
