The second book in the internationally bestselling Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage, featuring the funny and fantastic adventures of a wizard apprentice and his quest to become an ExtraOrdinary Wizard.
New York Times Bestselling Series
“Terrifically entertaining. Fans of the first book will be delighted with this sequel to Septimus’s story.” —VOYA (starred review)
“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.

l'auteur a un style d'écriture qui rend la lecture aisée en V.O.
l'histoire contient un peu d'aventures, de liens humains, de mystères et tout ça dans un monde empreint de magie. Les rebondissements en font une bonne série, adaptée aux adultes aimant les romans comprenant du surnaturel mais ne maîtrisant pas assez l'anglais pour lire les oeuvres de Tolkien.
adaptée également aux enfants qui ont acquis les bases de l'anglais (2 à 3 ans de découverte de la langue + un bon dictionnaire français/anglais suffisent)=> à partir de 8/9 ans environ.
le seul point noir : je ne l'ai pas trouvé avec une couverture rigide comme les harry potter
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.
Simon, who now considers himself to be the Apprentice of evil DomDaniel, knows he must get rid of the Princess, and his brother, Septimus, if he has any chance of returning to the Wizard Tower as ExtraOrdinary Wizard one day. Bent on revenge, he has a plan to get DomDaniel back into a position of power, and it is up to Jenna, Septimus, Nicko, Aunt Zelda, the entire Heap family, and the Dragon Boat to make sure that doesn't happen.
FLYTE is a great follow-up to book one, MAGYK. The Septimus Heap series continues to delight, with its introduction of new characters, intriguing plot lines, and great dialogue. I'm eagerly awaiting book three, which should no doubt continue to entertain!

I felt it continued the story and plot well, holding fairly true to the characters and flavor of the first book.
I only have a few... not complaints... but rather things that weren't quite up to 5 stars:
I'm still awaiting further explanation of the magical world (though as it's only book two, I'm not too concerned). I think it's all there, it's just not entirely explained and I think it would be very interesting to learn.
A few times I feel Sage has her characters act too young for the rest of their actions. Yes, the cast mainly consists of people under the age of 20, so it makes sense that they would act "young," but sometimes it seems a little out of place (but, not often enough for it to be distracting overall).
Finally, (and yes this is super picky!), a few character traits were a tad annoying: i.e. how unbelieving the Heaps are to one of their son's actions, or how it appears that telling someone what to do firmly is all it takes to be a leader. I'm pretty sure that those weren't the intentions Sage had in mind - I'm guessing that she was trying to show more the undying love of a parent, and that leadership comes with maturity not age, but I'm not sure that it came off quite as well as some of her other messages.
I was very pleased by some of the new characters and the growth of some of the others. I give Sage credit for not manipulating a plot to get her where she needs to go. She seems to have things well set up and a good idea of where the overall story needs to lead. The book isn't very predictable (happily) in most cases, and I was very curious to see how the story unfolded and it kept my interest to the end. I'm anxious to read the third book, so that's always a good sign.:)
It's another nice fantasy story and it doesn't feel like a rehash of many of the other ones. Worth the read!:)
