Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best seller!

A Publishers Weekly best seller!

A year has passed since the Tournament. Fletcher and Ignatius have been locked away in Pelt's dungeons, but now they must face trial at the hands of the Inquisition, a powerful institution controlled by those who would delight in Fletcher's downfall.

The trial is haunted by ghosts from the past with shocking revelations about Fletcher's origins, but he has little time to dwell on them; the graduating students of Vocans are to be sent deep into the orc jungles to complete a dangerous mission for the king and his council. If they fail, the orcish armies will rise to power beyond anything the Empire has ever seen.

With loyal friends Othello and Sylva by his side, Fletcher must battle his way to the heart of Orcdom and save Hominum from destruction...or die trying in this sequel to The Novice by Taran Matharu.

Thought it was better than the first book.

The story starts with basically Law & Order: Fantasy Realms which was turned into a useful plot thread which weaves itself throughout the novel pretty well. Story still moves very fast but once I checked a map of this world understood why everything was moving so quick. Had at least one twist I didn't expect, so, well done. Still mostly just easy listening fantasy Pokémon. Oh, but there are some hormones this time.

The author knows how to leave you wanting more!!!

This series has been great. Great characters well developed story, excellent narratoration. you can get lost in the story and characters, but the best part are the cliff hangers that make you have to buy the next book in the series. it's like please take my money!!!!!!!!!!
