Publisher's Summary

The comfortable world of Martris Drayke, second son of King Bricen of Margolan, is shattered when his older half-brother, Jared, and Jareds dark mage, Foor Arontala, kill the king and seize the throne. Tris is the only surviving member of the royal family aside from Jared the traitor, and he flees with three friends: Soterius, captain of the guard; Carroway, the courts master bard; and Harrtuck, a member of the royal guard.

Tris harbors a deep secret. In a land where spirits walk openly and influence the affairs of the living, he suspects he may be the mage heir to the power of his grandmother, Bava Kaa, once the greatest sorceress of her age. Such magic would make Tris a Summoner, the rarest of magic gifts, capable of arbitrating between the living and the dead.

BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Gail Z. Martin.

Just what I was looking for

If you could sum up The Summoner in three words, what would they be?

Adult Garth Nix

Who was your favorite character and why?

Verhainian, he's all manly and stubborn yet still likeable

Which character – as performed by Gail Z. Martin and Peter Ganim – was your favourite?

Michale, very mysterious and intriguing

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Many parts of the book made me laugh out loud, even though the plot is a serious one, the characters are so well developed you can't help but feel what they feel

Any additional comments?

I had been looking for a saga or trilogy to match trudi canavan and robin hobb and stumbled upon this, I have since listened to the rest of the saga and would recommend all to anyone who enjoys epic fantasy.
