Summary

In an academy that trains people to deal with monsters and mayhem, there's one challenge even Gryff may not be ready to face: final exams. 

On the plus side, he'll capture a giant armored monster and get to ride around on its shoulder while the beast smites things with its sword.

An awesome series

I have been listening to audiobooks for over 40 years. I've been an Audible customer for around 15.
I have a varied collection in my library however, I have never been hooked on a series like this before.
I've just downloaded the fifth book in this series and book six is on its way.

Great characterisation, Great narration Great story

The best thing about Eric Vall (aside from his quality writing) is his prolificacy. The man seems to never stop writing. He has new books out every week and the Audible versions are never far behind.
I'm fairly new to his work but have five of his books in my Audible library.

I wish exams were this exciting in the real world.

Another nice and exiting tale from this series. I still find the protagonist really annoying with his attitude and expectations but everything else is all right. Definitely not for kids.

Must read For LitRpg and Fantasy Fans(And 18+Fun;)

Since there's no review for this Book yet I feel I'm obligated to, because I have read the prior books of the series, and it has become one of my Fav book series out there.
What I usually look for in a Book Series is Edge of your seat Action, Land Trotting Adventure, a True almost Unattainable Love Or a Scintillating sizzling Harem Romance ;P and finally Comedy so knee jerkingly funny you'll have co-workers looking at you weird for the random fits of Snorts or Giggles you let out XD
Well look no further because Eric Vall's "Summoner" has it all and More!

Follow the "Country Hick" Gryff in his adventures of becoming a top tier summoner, putting monsters and snarky arse nobles in there place, proving to everyone Summoners are not just a one trick pony in the military of magic vanguards.

MC can be as arrogant as the antagonists...

Story is ok, skipping the sex bits doesn't hurt the story - which is good. I think its weird the female characters, youth or adult, are fine with the MC shagging every warm and willing woman in sight... Most harem based story lines create some kind (albeit lame) pretext explaining the overwhelming attraction and mad dash to the sack, but not here. The MC has a "meaningful" conversation with one of his lovers, and a paragraph later he is welcoming the flirtations of his next... well, his next.

This constant behavior 1) kills his credibility when he frequently explores his feelings for any of the female characters, 2) undermines the depth of any of these relationships, and 3) dilutes the span of villainy and heroism amongst the primary roles. I'd like to see the MC grow the hell up and stop acting like a 14 year old who has just figured out the wonderous mechanics of intercourse.

All that aside, I like where the creature connection is going! This will open up some new ground for storytelling.

Same flaws as the others

I keep listening since I'm so invested at this point but I keep seeing the same problems. More than anything I hate how much the MC calls his girlfriends his "lovers". Its so awkward and out of place. What young 20 something refers to his girlfriends as "lovers"?. Its just weird. Otherwise the narrator still speaks in an unnatural cadence often and even pronounces words differently than the first time he says them. I think he even got a name wrong. And the writing in general isnt great, there is a lot of cheese in the story. These arent terrible but the only reason I'm still listening is because I've made it 4 books in.

It's a great book, really enjoyed it but..

I just dont understand why so many great books especially newer titles, all feel the need to add sex scenes. The whole series I liked but every sex scene is irrelevant, not needed, just skipped over and its unnecessary filler. but atleast it's only 2 or 3 mins a few times each book and not hours like some other books I've listened to.

Entertaining and easy to follow

another book in the series down, and much has remained the same. The story is still a little on the simple side, but I found it has become my favorite soundtrack to when I'm doing more important things. The main character is my flavor of cheeky smartass. Although it was a little disappointing to see one of the more interesting characters get devolved into Captain exposition; overall it was a good listen, would still recommend.

Incredible

Not one but 2 Class A monsters added to his repitiore. That's incredible. His academic attitude toward exams is entirely believable. Acing them? Questionable lol
All around a great story
Keep it up

Not much to say

I liked the story so much that I purchased the book and devoured it. Then I purchased the audio and have listened to it twice. Those actions say more than I could ever write out in a review.

summoner 4

love this series. there r great friendships, great fights, sex scenes r spread out perfectly where they actually make sense, there's always something happening w/o fillers no one cares about, and great character development so that u really come care about the characters. worth the credits for sure!
