Fletcher is nothing more than a humble blacksmith's apprentice when a chance encounter leads to the discovery that he has the ability to summon demons from another world. Chased from his village for a crime he did not commit, he must travel with his demon to the Vocans Academy, where the gifted are trained in the art of summoning. The academy will put Fletcher through a gauntlet of grueling lessons, training him as a battlemage to fight in the Hominum Empire's war against the savage orcs.

Seems like it would be pretty good if the narrator's mouth didn't sound as dry as a prehistoric riverbed. With all the squelching his mouth does i couldn't take it after an hour. And he must have never heard of a Mage before because he pronounces it "Maj"

Kylar has rejected the assassin's life. In the wake of the Godking's violent coup, both his master and his closest friend are dead. His friend was Logan Gyre, heir to Cenaria’s throne, but few of the ruling class survive to mourn his loss. So Kylar is starting over: new city, new companions and new profession. But when he learns that Logan might be alive, trapped and in hiding, Kylar faces an impossible choice. He could give up the way of shadows forever and find peace with his young family.

I had to drop the series. The fact the main character is an immortal shadow ninja but at the same time a 20 year old virgin who blushes when a girl even looks at him, drives me crazy.

All the while he grew up in a "game of thrones" type setting where there is sex and murder everywhere but he is the picture of innocence. I just don't see how anyone who grows up the way he does ends up being such a week willed, idiotic and naive "man"
