Publisher's Summary

More demons, epic battles and fights to the death: introducing the unmissable next instalment in the Summoner Trilogy....

On trial for a crime he did not commit, Fletcher must face the Inquisition, who will decide his future. The process is grueling, led by those who will do anything to see him suffer and haunted by ghosts from the past with clues to Fletcher's tragic origins.

But Fletcher has little time to dwell on these new revelations when the king announces a deadly challenge to the graduating students at Vocans. One that involves entering Orc territory to complete a risky mission. With loyal demons by their sides, commoners and nobles, dwarves and elves must overcome barriers of class and race and work together to triumph. The reward: a fortune in gold, the safety of an empire and peace.

With the entire empire watching, Fletcher has much to prove, but there are those out to get him, and it soon becomes clear that there's a traitor in their midst, trying to thwart the mission and create unrest within the empire. With everything stacked against him, Fletcher must use everything in his power to fight his way to victory.

Great story, poor editing.

This is a really good story. Enjoyed listing to it thoroughly and cannot wait to listen to the next book. However the recording was poorly edited as at several points the reader repeats the same line twice.

Loved it but a bit little character introduction

The book was superbly well written with a story that while sometimes a bit liner to those veteran readers/listeners like my self it still manged to keep me on edge in this book you see the start of a "closer" relationship between Fletcher and sylva which i promise is not cringey it brings the same elements to the table as the first book with a few additions
The narrator is the same as the first book and while Stephen fry is better he is the second best which is high praise indeed
Too conclude the book is a brilliant second installment in the serious and manages too end on a cliffhanger (again)

Much better than the first

Story and pace has improved quite a lot. My only qualm was sometimes, the narrator breaks character on a few sentences and mispronounced a few words. But I guess that's the be expected as human error

Superb Book - Only flaw the slow start

Beginning "court case" has unnecessary twist and goes on a bit, otherwise the book is flawless.

Excilent

I jumped out of my sling when the music at the end of the audiobook played I was so wrapped in the story and it ended on such a high cliff hanger I couldn't believe it was the end of the book I had another look to see if it was in parts but it wasn't best new series

My son was engrossed.

My son read the first in this series about a year ago and ever since as been champing at the bit to read further. I even enjoyed listening in the car too and fro from school.
Unfortunately he is devastated he has to now wait for the next in the series to come out
