More demons, epic battles and fights to the death: introducing the unmissable next instalment in the Summoner Trilogy....
On trial for a crime he did not commit, Fletcher must face the Inquisition, who will decide his future. The process is grueling, led by those who will do anything to see him suffer and haunted by ghosts from the past with clues to Fletcher's tragic origins.
But Fletcher has little time to dwell on these new revelations when the king announces a deadly challenge to the graduating students at Vocans. One that involves entering Orc territory to complete a risky mission. With loyal demons by their sides, commoners and nobles, dwarves and elves must overcome barriers of class and race and work together to triumph. The reward: a fortune in gold, the safety of an empire and peace.
With the entire empire watching, Fletcher has much to prove, but there are those out to get him, and it soon becomes clear that there's a traitor in their midst, trying to thwart the mission and create unrest within the empire. With everything stacked against him, Fletcher must use everything in his power to fight his way to victory.

awsome now i have to wait till the next book is released to continue. loved the way it ended in a cliff hanger again just like the first book. i think i have a new fav book series to replace harry potter
Enjoyed this more than the first book. Entertaining story, thoroughly detestable villains. Voice acting was top notch. Can't wait for next book.
As is often the case, the book containing the back story is better and this is no exception. This book starts to deal with the politics of this world and it actually makes the book interesting in a different way.
The action and the typical fantasy book plotline are a little weaker in this book than the 1st that contains the back story but this is balanced by the development of a world, the political machinations within that world and the struggle for power/money
The rescue lacked some believable elements to it but there was a nice little plot twist atthe end which was nice.
Enjoyed it - bread and butter stuff. Looking forward to the next one
This is a really good story. Enjoyed listing to it thoroughly and cannot wait to listen to the next book. However the recording was poorly edited as at several points the reader repeats the same line twice.
The book was superbly well written with a story that while sometimes a bit liner to those veteran readers/listeners like my self it still manged to keep me on edge in this book you see the start of a "closer" relationship between Fletcher and sylva which i promise is not cringey it brings the same elements to the table as the first book with a few additions
The narrator is the same as the first book and while Stephen fry is better he is the second best which is high praise indeed
Too conclude the book is a brilliant second installment in the serious and manages too end on a cliffhanger (again)
