Fletcher also mentioned him being a…more I think it's Ignatius ^^ When you look carefully at the head and tail, you can see it's shaped like Ignatius' ^^
Fletcher also mentioned him being a little bigger after the lava bath so I think he's growing :D (less) (hide spoiler)]
But luckily, I'm only spending time reading as many books as I can in two of my groups to get my badges and get books DONE! This one now gets its place on the shelf with the first two. Of course now there is a prequel coming out in May. Not sure when I will get to that one as I will surely be in chemo when that comes out.
I'm so happy this was a great ending to a great trilogy! I truly ho ...more
Firstly, this series is for fans of the following. Harry Potter ( I know thats cringe because everyone says that but just bear with me. ) Pokemon... yes you read that.. Pokemon. Warcraft and Skyrim.
Its set in a fantasy world with a cast of amazing, diverse characters. The premise is that some people can summon demons, making them summoners and they go to a school to learn what that means. I wont say anything else because I want you to not be spoiled .. so READ THIS SERIES. ...more
OK, I had no patience to wait for my buddy readers, so as soon as I finished book two in the trilogy, I dived in this one... Wow!!! I think my label of middle-aged woman came off and was replaced by my inner teenage boy, with big letters on my forehead:):):) This world has really won me over, while having me root for the Disney/Pokemon like cute-as-hell demons!!! In this book there was even one that was like a benevolent giant tortuous, whom our heroes were very lucky to encounter in ...more
So at last we come to the end of the Summoner series...or is it? Not with this level of high action, and highly relevant social commentary as the previous books' allegory for the rampant prejudices of today's wor ...more
A good old school series where there's the good guys vs the bad guys and very little gray. This YA/Epic tale is well written and the thing I liked most about it was the world. The aether and especially the demon types were well thought out and entertaining.
I did this series as a group read but also read it with my middle schooler at the same time. She enjoyed the books and it's a very safe series for tweens. Fantasy 101 for them to lea ...more
full of epic moments, adventures & battles!
a bit slow in the middle.
but again, rush of adrenaline after that :)
Chapter 15 & 31 were full of excitements!
World building: ★★★★/5
Written style: ★★★★/5

Matharu is a good writer in terms of style. For me it flows well and for the most part conversations feel real. And the first two books in the series were pretty good - I even liked book two more than book one and assumed this wo ...more
I have really enjoyed this series but this took it to another level I think.
The world building takes it up a notch here as we see some new places and some old ones revived.
It really works and transports you into that world quite perfectly. There's also some battle scenes that I thought were done extremely well.
The characters are fantastic as always and Fletcher really grows and develops in this one and I really like seeing that transformation happen. Sylva though is ...more
Fletcher is maybe one of the best characters I've read...he's just generally a likeable guy. The kind everybody wants in their corner. He shines in this book. The relationships he has with various characters are a joy to read. And since this is one of those fate-of-the-world finales, there's some heartbreak too. But that in itself is a kind of victory for authors, yea? They've made us care about these fictional characters.
I still can't quite figure out if I'd classify thi ...more
The Battlemage is the third book in The Summoner series and in this one, Fletcher and his demons, Ignatius and Athena as well as his best friend have to work their way out of the Ether they’re trapped in (without dying), and then catapult into the final battle between their home and the orcs trying to take it.
I really enjoyed this book as always - and it had been almost two year ...more
خب این هم جلد پایانی مجموعه احضارگر که متاسفانه اصلا شایسته ی همچین روایتی نبود. چهارصد صفحه اول عملا همش حرف از راهپیمایی،توصیف جن ها، خانه سازی، انواع غذاها، انواع سلاح ها و حرف از چیزهایی که نباید زده میشد گذشت واقعا هیچ پیشروی خاصی نداشت در حالی که در جلد های قبل پل ها چیده شده بودن تا در این جلد کلی هیجان داشته باشیم و بعد در صد صفحه آخر داستان تموم میشه با یک جنگ که سرنوشت تمام دشمنان فلچر مشخص میشه که به نظرم اون هم ضعیف بود. خیلی ازجاهای کتاب اتفاقاتی شگفت انگیز میوفتاد اما هیچ یک ا ...more
I still believe that three average books could have been combined into one solid artwork.
Kaput went any and every little problem I had with this series as soon as I started reading the Battlemage. It put its predecessors and a lot of other trilogy finales to shame by how glorious it was. Finesse, mortals, finesse. It was filled to the neck with it. From the first page to the last it was shameless PERFECTION. GAH! *flops around like a dying fish*
The first one was okay, the second one was much better and this one was BLOODY SPECTACULAR. I loved the prose, loved the pace, loved the bat...more
Protagonist: At the end of The Inquisition, Fletcher's world got rocked when the prisoner he and his team were sent to recover wasn't Lady Cavendish as they thought, but Fletcher's own mother, long thought to be dead. However, before he could even let that twist faze him, they all had to jump straight into the ether, a place believed to be poisonous to humans. Fletcher's journey in this story is a pretty interesting one. His team looks to him as a leader and even when all seems hopeless h ...more
