The second book in the Septimus Heap series carries on the wacky notions, action, adventure and inventiveness of the first. Septimus is slowly growing into his role, but limitations on his magyk abilities mean the problems he faces cannot simply be solved with a charm and he has to rely on others and his ingenuity to get him out of the numerous holes he finds himself in.

A great read for all ages with laughs and edge-of-the-seat action in equal measure.
