Publisher's Summary

Gryff never knew he was the most powerful summoner in the world until a rogue monster attacked his village.

Now, he's been recruited into the top magical academy, beautiful women are breaking down his dorm-room door, and the headmaster has big, big plans for him. Instead of summoners being maligned by society, Gryff is in a position to make them revered and honored.

There's just one problem: The most powerful fire mage in the academy wants to protect the status quo and will do anything to stop him.

This novel has harem elements.

Wish fulfillment central.

There was way too many wish fulfillment aspects to this novel, to the point where it was sickening.

from being the first to realise his class was decent, to monsters being overpowered and fitting every situation as a plot device. the relationship dynamics are non existent. the mc can slerp with 100 different girls and the others will just go along with it.

The only thing I really enjoyed was the cover art.

performance is worth the listen alone

this book was very enjoyable, it read like a harem anime and I really liked it. I was completely blown away by the audio version of the book it really went above and beyond

story not very good

the story was really everywhere. it was too short and I had a hard time with the main character hooking up so much without. gaining any kind of attachment to any girl.

the character seemed too powerful and didn't struggle. anything he didn't know or needed was handed to him. overall I was bored.

the readers of the audio did a great job overall but they also had a bad script to work through.

Not my kind of book.

I lost interest about half way though this book and stopped. This books main character has his good moments but the book as a whole dragged it down. Summoners are one of a few kinds of magically capable people in this world. Summoners to this point surprisingly have yet to realize the obvious combination combat capabilities of the summoned monsters. I mean after so many decades you can't be serious. A town gets attacked by monsters, the main character displayes his revolutionary monster combo tecnique, and is snapped up by a convenient head master flying past in an air ship. The book ambles on and I was just not impressed. Summoners makes me think really hard about pokemon and how this author must have gotten their inspiration for the magic class from them. Also so many of these monsters were made for the purpose of being used in combinations or in menial labor I mean cement trolls? Really? They excrete fast hardening cement. The only thing that could save this book in my eyes were the romance scene as promised by the summary. This too let me down as the romance was just DTF. No romance about it. Then you have the scenes themselves which were depressingly short and lacking in detail. Narrator tried to save it but this is just a book that didn't need to be made into an audio book.

Be prepared for repeats

Over all the book is good the editing on the audio needs work multiple times a phrase will be repeated. It dose break the Immersion a bit but dose not ruin the book

Enjoyable.

I enjoyed this book. The narrator muddled voices here and there and occasionally mistimed the cadence of some dialogue but I still look forward to the next installment

skipping records destroy story

but overall I've only given two Stars the reason for that is the editor of this story has made it so it's like a skipping record that continually but hits a certain spot skips repeats skips repeats this is so bad I'm returning it but I'm doing so under a protest that the author should be paid by the editor for how horribly they've mango the story by their doing this practice of skipping and repeating sentences

Blah

The premise was interesting but the delivery was bland. The story suffers from falling into the tropes of LITRPGs without actually being a LITRPG. The romances, while there, take away from the story instead of adding to it. They shock you with their awkward abruptness and feel forced.

Boring

Story start out well and interesting but by the middle of the book nothing was happening. I also did see any difference between the main character and his rival. They both just wanted to flex there egos. it just a badly done underdog story.

2 hours in and had to stop

Characters have no personality and the head master of the entire school just showers him with praise for a small feat.
I really like the story idea just the ways they interact is cringy

Loved it.

Need the other Eric Vall books on Audible as he is becoming one of my fave Authors. This audiobook was a fantastic start to the series.
