"Terrifically entertaining....Fans of the first book will be delighted with this sequel to Septimus's story." (Voice of Youth Advocates)
Audible is the balm for an itch I can't scratch that sits right between my ears.
Book two in the series takes a bit of a dark turn with the complete change of one of the characters to an antagonist. The rest of the tale proceeds as expected with less mystery than book one but at least one surprise thrown in.
My son loved this book as much as the first, with dragons, flying and chocolate he did not want to stop once he started.
The narration was excellent and the characters carried over well from book one.
I found the narrator very good and I absolutely LOVE Septimus Heap. 🙈I've now listened to the book 4 times or something ridiculous like that! But the narrator said a few words wrong, being Australian I can pick it up but you said moat wrong, you pronounced it mot and that got me confused for the first time I listened to the series.
This book is very good for Harry potter lovers.the book is full of fantasy and magical actions good luck!
I really like it although there were few differences with the audio book.. I am looping forward to read the next book.
I am still looking to find a better way to read and listen simultaneously.
I wish they hadn't changed the narrator. Gerard Doyle is still entertaining, but Allan Corduner was inspired. Doyle is so intense in his enunciation it's at times exhausting listening to him.
The story though continues to be a lot of lighthearted fun, I have the entire series purchased and am looking forward to many many more entertaining hours of easy listening.
This book is part 2 of the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage - if you enjoyed the first magical book this one is even better!
The characters just come to life in this story - the writer did a very good job!
The story is just more interesting - I actually dislike reading but listening to a book is different and I love this. I am able to keep track of what is going on and I can listen to this book at work while I am still doing my job.
Yes but to give it away in this review would give away parts of the story - read the book! :)
I'll be sad once I reach the end of the series
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
What a fun series, I love how all the characters are so perfectly original and surrounded by a wonderful story that just keeps getting better with each book. It is fantastic how there is always new magic in so many avenues of Septimus's young life. Dragons, wolf boys, ghosts, magic all wrapped up in generations of splendid wizardry. Gerard Doyle's individual voices are so good that it is easy to forget that it is just one person. An excellent, clean story for all ages that moves along at just the right pace to keep it captivating and exciting. Looking forward to the next book.
This is a fun audiobook for young people and the young at heart.
Marcia Overstrand's shoes and her interactions with the Septimus' new "pet".
Consistently enjoyable and irritating at the same time, like the characters.
I listened to most of it on a long road trip.
