Publisher's Summary

One boy's ability to summon demons will change the fate of an empire.... 

The epic conclusion to the fantasy trilogy described as "Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings meets Pokemon". 

After the thrilling cliff-hanger at the end of book two, we rejoin Fletcher and his friends in the ether, where they must undertake a mortally dangerous quest, all the while avoiding capture by enemies and facing foes more terrifying than anything they have yet encountered. But this is nothing compared to what truly lies ahead for Fletcher, as his nemesis, albino orc Khan, is on a mission to destroy Hominum and everything and everyone that Fletcher loves. Epic battles, dramatic revelations and breathtaking drama await in the third and final book in the New York Times best-selling Summoner series.

A bit too predictable for my taste.

Every choice fletcher makes seemed plot driven, rather than character driven. The elf romance was there not because he sought out love but because she was the only other female within his age range that was in the story + the backstory of his family wanting trade with the elves. Fletcher seems overly targeted for it to seem believable and for all the bluster the orcs were made out to be. the entire ordeal was delt with in 2 and half years with about 4 significant character deaths. I didnt like the resolution. The build up of the existential threat was concluded in a single chapter and all the human threats were handled in a epilogue.

Nice listen,

The wait is finally over, this was a great ending to a series. I lovd every minute of it and wished it could go on for ever, but good things must come to a end. I wil be sure to keep an eye out to see what Taran Matharu writes next as I'm sure its going to be worth listening to. If you want a gripping listen ten give this series ago you wont be disappointed.

Fantastic Characters, Great Story

I have now read/listened to all four books, on this occasion I read/listened to them in order. However, if you wanted to you could read the Prequel 1st, then books 1, 2 & 3. The correct order is The Novice, The Inquisitions, The Battlemage then the prequel, The Outcast. Although you can read the Outcast 1st, its written to be read last, the reason i think is that although it explains lots, there is also lots of twists, which you may not get if you read it 1st. Now, the books, fantastic characters, super story line and great twists. I read/listened to all four books in four weeks. I found the story line to be a mix of Harry Potter, meets Lord of the Rings, meets Game of Thrones. The writer has spent a lot of time, making sure that the story flows. This along with the twists and fantastic characters, makes them a must read.

A great series held back by a rushed ending

dead romance, unclimatic finish, needed another 200+ pages for the fitting ending the series deserved!

Ok Series

I thought I’d listen to the complete trilogy before posting a review. This series is like a mix up of Pokemon, Harry Potter and the Demon Cycle series with a few original ideas thrown in. I genuinely thought the first book was the best but the writing quality slipped as the series went on. I personally found myself losing concentration by the end as I found the last third of the story a little repetitive. I reckon the target audience is young teen but good for adults who are looking to pass some time with an easy to follow story.

A bit derivative at the end

Although the story and character progressed well, a lot of the elements seem derived from other fiction.

Excellent ending to a great series

The last book in the series picks up brilliantly where the one before left off. The story is gripping and actions packed all the way through.
Will be looking out for more from the author.

enjoyable conclusion to the series

I enjoyed the book, it was narrated well but it did seem a bit shorter than the others. or I just enjoyed it and time flew by.

Solid if not great conclusion

I felt it was the weakest of the books. Some of the antagonists were dealt with in a paragraph or so with no great satisfying payoff and it felt rushed to end. It feels like there should be a book 4 on some levels though it is labelled as a trilogy. Disappointing after the first two great books. Solid job by voice actor.
