    Story
    "Simply beautiful."

    Just as humorous, vivid and surprising as its predecesor, Flyte is full of twists of phrase and plot that never cease to entertain and entrance.

    Worth many listens.

    "Missing!"

    I was very disappointed. The recording left out an entire section of the book: "What happened before" at the end of the book. It ties up loose ends and sets the scene for the next book!

    Story
    "Completely enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I listen to these books to fall asleep. The story line is great and the voice is soothing.
    The stories flow nicely and I get to discuss the book with my niece who is reading them. It works out great for both of us because we always have something to talk about. Sometimes, as we all know that can be difficult with a twelve year old.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy the way Septimus can still be such a well centered boy after having suffered for the first ten years of his life and the characters are well animated.


    Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to Magyk and enjoyed his voice very much. He has a voice that is easy to listen to and he has a nice rhythm to his reading. His voice matches the story perfectly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A magic family, a seventh son of a seventh son and great adventure. It doesn't get any better.


    Any additional comments?

    How do I buy a credit?

    "Still adore this series"

    This book is awesome, has to be since Spitfire is introduced. Though I must say I didn't like Gerard Doyle as narrator nearly as much as the first book's.

    "A great family audio for long trips."

    Great story to enjoy with the family. My 10yr old daughter loved it. We will be listening to the remaining books.

    Story
    "The Plot Thickens"
    What made the experience of listening to Flyte the most enjoyable?

    The most enjoyable part of listening to this book was the continuing stories and adventures that Gena and Septimus get into from the first book, but it seems that they keep learning more and more about the town they are in and the people around them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Some parts seemed drawn out and it took me a minute to get into them but then other parts kept me interested and ready to hear what happened next. Parts that caught my attention dealed with the Heap boys and finding their grandfather in the woods, then all the additional secret passages and rooms in the catsle and under the castle. Just trying to figure out what will happen to Gena, and Septimus as they grow is something that is interested.


    Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The only other book I have listened to is the first book within this series and to me they are the same.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several parts of the book that moved me but the end where Gena found the Queens room and her father was introduced to her those two parts stand out to me from this book. They seem like two of the turning points in the book and within Gena's life.

    Story
    "Dragons!"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I love dragons and am so excited to see who helps Septimus with his new dragon. I hope Simon stops being vengeful since that doesn't always work out, and comes home some day because he is sure living in the creepiest worm hole Ever! This adventure was fun because we learn more about Septimus and Jenna, forever working with their family (who seem quite resourceful and caring). And now there are scary villains.

    Story
    "An adventure boys can't put down"

    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.
