Young Reader Reaction: The cover immediately draws you in immediately with its unique diary-like appearance that looks like it came from within the magical world the book is about. Flyte is a wonderfully written book from beginning to end. The mini life stories about certain characters at the back of the book are fun to read, provide insight, are entertaining, and quite humorous. Although the bold-type, intentionally misspelled words can be slightly confusing at times, they are a unique twist to the book and are helpful in signifying spells, charms, and anything magical. There is no shortage of excitement and surprises when it comes to this book, whether it is underground ice tunnels in the summer or a self-renewing banana chew that reappears every time it gets spit out. the characters are well developed, each with their own personalities and singular characteristics that bring them to life.

Adult Reader Reaction: Review pending.

Pros: Flyte gives readers a good fantasy book, complete with adventure, action, and magic for the total package.

This is Book Two in the Septimus Heap series and continues the story seamlessly. Commendably, each book can be read and enjoyed on its own. Both books are pretty derivative and you'll recognize a lot of parallels to the Harry Potter books. However, they are different enough to be thoroughly enjoyable for the young reader.. The characters are engaging and easy for a youngster to identify with, the situations pile fantasy upon fantasy in a combination of adventure and pure fun that make it a very worthwhile read. Recommended. ( )

The second book in the Septimus Heap series. Flyte relies a little more on deus ex machina than did the first volume, but generally speaking is still an above-average children's fantasy. Picking up about a year after Magyk, the plot is perhaps both a little too complex and, at times, a little too obscure for its payoffs. As in the first book, older readers will quickly figure out the major plot points, but if you enjoy spotting foreshadowing you won't be troubled by this. ( )

Clever and amusing, but my least favorite of the series. Spit Fyre may be my least favorite fictional dragon, alas, and the Heap family gets less and less endearing, except for Jenna and Septimus himself. ( )
