Angie Sage's second installment was still entertaining, albeit a bit more predictable while the characters were rather more irritating than enchanting, as in the first. But, I can't help wonder if it was the narration that changed things for me. Allan Corunder did such a phenomenal job in the first book. His voices were so riveting, entertaining, enchanting - it was hard for any of us to put the book down. This second narrator was okay - and that was it - just okay. I almost felt as if I needed to reacquaint myself with some of the characters, who seemed totally different than in the first book (example, Marcia was so solid and funny and quirky with her fascinating purple shoes in the first book; in the second, she seemed inept and downright irritating at times - and that to me really stemmed from the narration, not the writing). I miss Mr. Corunder's hilarious interpretations, and I wish I could hear him narrate for all the books. As it is, I'm not sure I'll go on with the series. There certainly isn't a delicious anticipation to get to the next in the series as there was in the first. - A bit of a letdown.

I really enjoyed the first book of the series, and it threw me for a loop when they switched narrators. I really enjoy Gerard Doyle, however, I had just finished the Eragon books he narrated and it was a little strange hearing the characters' voices from another series in this one. I would have given this book 4.5 stars because of that. However, the story itself, is fun and entertaining. And as always, I was looking for a book with no vulgarity or inappropriate language for very young children, yet interesting enough for me. This series definitely fulfill those requirements.

Flyte is a brilliant read and well narrated although the voices are a little over the top for some.

The children (7 and 9) loved this just as much as they did the first episode. Good listening for the whole family.
