Summary

The highly anticipated prequel to the New York Times best-selling Summoner trilogy.

Arcturus is just an orphaned stable boy when he accidentally summons a demon. As Hominum's first common summoner, he becomes the key to a secret that the powerful nobility would do anything to keep hidden.

He is immediately whisked away to Vocans Academy, where the lost arts of summoning, spell craft and demonology are taught to the noble children of the Empire. In no time Arcturus finds himself surrounded by enemies as noble teachers and students question his right to be there.

But before he can even attempt to make friends, his life is turned upside down once again, for the Empire is in turmoil. Rebellion is simmering among the masses, and it will not be long before it boils over. Arcturus must choose a side...or watch the Empire crumble

Set before the events of Summoner: The Novice, this is the perfect introduction to the Summoner series.

Rounds off the series very nicely

Builds deeper on the characters and also sets the tone for some of the villains in the future. Great addition and ties in nicely
