Between his studies at the Varle Academy for Gifted Mages and his duties to the monster response team, Gryff will find himself fighting not just monsters, but bandits, thugs, and a local street gang as well.
But hey, no one ever said becoming the world’s greatest summoner while also juggling three hot girlfriends would be easy. Especially when you add a fourth girl to the

This book overall was a lot weaker than the first installment. It has three glaring flaws in core areas, the plot, the characters and the harem.

1. The plot. It pretty much goes nowhere. The entire book is more slice of life than plot driven. There is no overarching goal, no progress made and nothing really happens. It's a string of minor events and scenes where the characters are eating and they eat a lot. Which usually is described in detail.

2. The characters. There's very little to no develope

Another awesome book.

I truly enjoy this series. It is fun to read and I like the characters in the book. I find them enjoyable and engaging they continue to grow and develop so that they are not just filler characters.The book was solid and continues to fill out the world and how it works.Overall I would have liked to get more backstory on Nia hopefully we will see more in book three.

Rating 4.0 stars

This is turning into a really good series. I still think the cover art is a little misleading, it makes it seem like Gryff is surrounded by scantily clad women that can't get enough sex. While there is sex in this book, it is not over the top. Gryff does have sex in this book with multiple women, but it seems more like friends with benefits. He enjoys hanging out with his friends and if an opportunity arises when a female friend wants to have sex with him, that's great. He is no

“Blood doesn’t make a family, love does”- Gryff
As corny as that sounds, it still got me deep.
While I’m still not over the dubious premise and other issues I mentioned in my review of the first book but the little things I liked got even more fleshed out in this one. And I loved every bit of it- the character interactions, random banter, their back stories etc.
Their uncertainty over their future, mixed feelings of returning home for the summer holidays, moments like those brought back all the bit

Great follow-up to the first novel. The only reason that I gave it less stars than the first was because I felt the publication was rushed and it didn't have a proper editing done. There were also editing errors in the first book, but not as severe as in this one. For example, there were a lot of times in this book where the prose style went from past tense to present tense for a single paragraph and then back again or even just a single sentence. Keeping the same tense throughout a story is one ...more

Didn't measure up to the first

I was rather intrigued by how the author decided to go with the title "Summoner 2."

The bold move won brownie points with me as a reader, and I may have given the author too much credit.

Now this is the part where I'm going to be brutally honest, although I encourage the author to keep his work up. Pressure makes diamonds. The flirtatious dialogue became cheesy at a point, and the repetitive things Gryff said to his female companions weren't as witty as I'd hoped they

Theres some action throughout, not much but enough to keep things interesting. Book was mostly slice of life. Romance is done well with most of the women. Author glossed over the lead up to the threesome, which is a shame, would have been amusing to see cyras reaction to layla being keen on it.
Didn't get too smutty with the sex scenes which was good, was right in the middle.
We finally see our MC use a new monster summon instead of his usual staple of summons. But he only uses it once a

Enjoyable but the small inconsistencies wear on me.

Let me get this out of the way it's an enjoyable story with unique action. The sex scene are explicit but not graphic (think Cinemax not porno) which makes it satisfying but isn't long enough to be off putting to those who don't enjoy that sort of thing. My issue with the series is small but annoying, any story has the inconstancies but they feel like they add up more in this series. Saying it's been a week when it's been 2 or 3 days, saying the

Summoner 2 a fun read

The Summoner story is growing into an epic tale as Gryff grows in ability and adds more notches on his belt with the ladies. Not sure if you can call this a harem tale as most of the ladies are not aware of the others at this stage anyway. I keep wondering if any of the girls will end up pregnant as there never seems to be any protections used or mentioned. It’s not all about sex as this is an action adventure tale with plenty of bad guys and monsters to fight.

A decent improvement.

The previous instalment was lacking when it came to the development of the protagonist, this sequel has definetly improved on the character and brought in some other interesting characters to boot.

The over-arching story in the series doesn’t progress very far in this instalment, but there are some interesting and enjoyable events. The books are well written, and i find my self becoming more invested in the primary cast as the story progresses.

Great idea.

The idea for the story is good and most of it is well written, though the adaults scenes feel forced and add nothing to the story. They also come across as completely unnatural. This on top of the fact that the protagonists claim to fame it that he coordinates his summons instead of acting as a powerhouse with them.... He is also the first and only one to know how to do this...

Summoner are Stronger than you think

Yes, it's true! Summoner are a lot more powerful than they are given credit for. If you need to take out an evil monster, sure you can freeze it or light it aflame, but summon another monster that can be made of metal and deflects electricity, now that's a great fight!
Again I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next book.
Yes there is some sex, but it's not the focus of some of the harem stories.

Éric Vall has an interesting imagination for summoning. I really enjoy the dark and gruesome descriptions of the monsters within this series! Character building is still growing strong within the second book of the series, relations between the characters as well. This is exactly what i like to look for within a fantasy style novel; adventure, character building , intelligent fighting/tactics and a unique outlook on magic(summoning).

Romance and Monsters

I like this world. I like Braden better. Rich, big & burly, the quiet type that smolders quietly then explodes. That said, the storyline is good, the action is definitely fast paced and the drinks flow freely. Summoner 2, straight and to the point. I liked it. On to book three t see what's going on with Gryft & his buddies. You'll like it, well, I did.

A Nice Romp

Nothing earth-shattering here: just a nice easy, interesting read. The characters work as previously defined, and we get to know more about them. We get good action, drama, and a little romance. A good read, and likely a lull before some serious action. (No, the other kind of action, with monsters and stabby metal tools.) Recommended.

As Good as Book 1

Gryff’s adventures continue, which is a good thing. In Summoner 2 Gryff and his friends continue to maneuver themselves through their first year at the academy. A little more character development is provided for Layla and Nia finally starts to thaw towards our hero. If you enjoyed the first book, the second will not disappoint.

Excellent Book 2

Eric Vall doesn't dissapoint in the second book of the series. Gryf helps Layla with her family issues and challanges brought on by her POS brother and takes out the gang trash. The trio go visit Maelor during their holiday break. They have some great adventures, and his reunion with Nia is quite memorable! I really recommend this series!

Fun to read

As with the first, the action and characters are well written. The "recap exposition" at the beginning of the book is a little heavy handed, but not too bad. Most unusually, there isn't much of an overarching plot. It's fun to read, but lacks cohesion as a single story. It's best read like a magazine serial.

Interim book

The story is still well done, and worth the read. It is certainly an interim type of book where different elements are brought together and a bit of foreshadowing. I like it, and look forward to the next in the series.

This series is excellent, full of action, engaging characters, and a entertaining plot. Looking forward to further books from this amazing author. Keep up the great work!

A fun light novel, kinda waiting for the other shoe to drop though. A good fun read if you're looking for something that doesn't take too much thinking and has it's fair share of shagging.

It was good but a plot is needed for me to continue

The characters are great. I saw a few spelling and phrase mistakes. Some of the action is good but it needs a plot now that can suck me in the next book

Very good book

I’ve read the first 2 books in 2 days now. Really enjoyed them. I’m going to look for the third now (don’t know if it’s out yet) but if not I’ll definitely read it when it comes out. Great work

Great Story

From the first chapter of the first book, I've been in love with these books. The characters are rich, connections built and expanded upon, and a great writing style. My only complaint is the abundance of grammatical errors almost make it unreadable.

A decent read

I enjoyed it. This one felt like it was more about the main character's romantic exploits than any real progress in his abilities or the story. But it was a fun distraction for a few hours.

Nothing really happened.

The action in this one felt rather hollow. Our mc flips from killing fine to it not being his thing in a few weeks. And I get that it's a harem story but the amount of vagina flying at this guy is ridiculous. I hope the next book has substance.

Character progression but meandering story

Hero is too busy dipping his wick into all moving girls to progress the story much. Even that NFSW content is not fleshed out. Makes one wonder the authors target audience. Anyways an okay read if you don't have much on your reading list.

A trip home

Gryph takes a spring break vacation with his friends Branden and Layla. Heading to the last known place where his adopted father was working. Aside from the excitement of the trip on horseback, they enjoyed the companionship and beauty of the wilderness. A good read.

I am truly enjoying these stories with the summoners. The friendship between all the characters is heart-felt. The fight scenes are exceptional and I keep like the new monster combinations that are coming out of the fights.

Not enough hours in the day

I just started reading this series today and I will probably try to fit in two or three books tomorrow. I'm officially hooked. Can't wait to see how much stronger Gryff becomes and how his relationships progress.
