"Terrifically entertaining....Fans of the first book will be delighted with this sequel to Septimus's story." (Voice of Youth Advocates)
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.
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.
The only other book I have listened to is the first book within this series and to me they are the same.
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.
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.
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.
