Taran Matharu’s New York Times bestselling epic fantasy The Summoner Trilogy is the story of Fletcher, a blacksmith’s apprentice who discovers that he has the rare ability to summon demons from another world.
When he is chased from his village for a crime he didn’t commit, Fletcher travels with his demon, Ignatius, to Vocans Military Academy to be trained in the art of summoning. He is trained as a battlemage to fight in the Hominum Empire’s war against Orcs alongside the children of nobles and other commoners. With the threat of deceit and betrayal surrounding him, Fletcher must decide on what side of the war his loyalties lie as the fate of the Empire rests in his hands.
“[This] plot-focused fantasy adventure will be a satisfying read for a wide age range of readers, especially fans of role-playing games and Christopher Paolini.” — VOYA (on The Novice)
