Continue the excitement He can summon demons. But can he win a war? Chased from his village for a crime he did not commit, Fletcher must travel with his demon, Ignatius, to an academy for adepts, where the gifted are taught the art of summoning. Taran Matharu wrote his first book when he was nine years old.

The Novice is the first book in the New York Times -bestselling Summoner series, which includes three books and a prequel, as well as the companion The Summoner's Handbook.
Books in this Series. That is the only problem worth any importance. Completely and utterly unnecessary this book.
I loved the Summoner trilogy when I read it last year, it was fantastic. There was a novella about how Arctuturs came to Vocans called 'Origins' and while I didn't love it so much it was all fine and good. The Outcast was a full-length novel about Arcturus that bas But, what was the point of this book? And it was pointless.
I didn't want to know more about his past! I already know what happens to him in the end and that is all that matters, doesn't it?
Summoner: The Battlemage
And it was unexciting besides. It added nothing new to the world of Hominum or the world outside it.
Consider this, the Grisha trilogy is prequel to Six of Crows, right? While the former is set in Ravka, the latter takes place in Ketterdam.
Two countries in the same world, their own problems, politics, cultures and languages. You catch a reference here and there in the sequel about the 'events' but that is it.
What that does is make for an incredible world-building and the concept of sequel and prequel is done justice. It's essentially two stones with one throw: you tell an original story AND expand the same world.
I would have much preferred a story from let's say the elves' point of view or the dwarves, touching more on the first dwarven rebellion or the Ether and how that came to be or even Orcs! Hell, what I REALLY would have liked was to get a prequel that went as far back as the time of the old civilizations whose traces Fletcher found in caves in the trilogy.
Things like the first time humans discovered the Ether or summoned a demon or when they discovered that there were other races besides them in the world. Or just about anything that defined this world more clearly. As far as I can tell, there is only Hominum, Orc jungles and Elf settlements.And it was unexciting besides.

With no one but Ignatius by his side, Fletcher must decide where his loyalties lie.
The Novice is the first book in the New The magic system is simple yet serviceable, and skillfully I corporates the familiar, or "demons" as the book calls them. Fletcher is tested to his limits, bullied by the noble students, and subjected to constant scrutiny by the teachers, but he also makes new allies among the less-privileged students, including representatives from the dwarves and elves.
Hm... Are You a Human?
Am ready to see more of view spoiler [young Edmund and Alice Raleigh hide spoiler ], Fletcher's parents? I highly recommend this series. The world is at war with the orcs, but the hero, Fletcher, is just a boy finding his way in the midst of it all.
