    So at last we come to the end of the

    series...or is it? Not with this level of high action, and highly relevant social commentary as the previous books' allegory for the rampant prejudices of today's world continues to develop, and deep emotional investment because we the readers need Fletcher and Ignatius and all their comrades-in-arms to survive these trials, gorrammit!

    Naturally, some of them don't.

    But the ride there is loaded with all that action, right up to the very end. I'm not kidding - Taran Matharu gives this series a

    Wooow!!! What a book!! I loved every single thing about it and there's nothing I would change. First things first, this has become one of my favourite series of all times, hands down!!! I mean, it has everything a fantasy lover wishes for. Great world, awesome plot, dwarfs, orcs, goblins, elves, summoners and magical beings. They're not kidding when they say this series is a cross between Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Pokemon and I might add His Dark Materials. Trust me, you're in for a ride!

They're not kidding when they say this series is a cross between Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Pokemon and I might add His Dark Materials. Trust me, you're in for a ride! I like how even though the plot is complex and we have action in spades, you don't feel like you can't keep up. The flow is so beautiful and natural and you feel like you're there beside the characters. Speaking about the characters, omg I couldn't love them more! Beautifully penned with wonderful traits and so very real. I love Fletcher, Ignatius, Athena, Sylva, Othello, Arcturus and Lovett with my whole heart!

    I adore The Battlemage so much, I can't even write a proper review. I want to say how pleased I am with this ending of the trilogy even though it's bittersweet because there were many fallen characters.

    The series got better and better with each book and that is a rare thing.

    I want more in this series. Be them spin-offs or novellas. I want to know more about how Fletcher and his mom are doing, I want more about Fletcher and Sylva, also Alice and Harold, I want them to happen, oh and Othello, more Othello and Cress.

    I know for sure that another book is going to happen in the Summoner world, because it was written at the end of the book so I can only say, please can it be 2018 already?!!!!!

    If you haven't read the Summoner series yet, just drop everything and read it already!!!

    I cannot recommend it enough!!

    Well... how do I start.

    Firstly, this series is for fans of the following. Harry Potter ( I know thats cringe because everyone says that but just bear with me. ) Pokemon... yes you read that.. Pokemon. Warcraft and Skyrim.

    Its set in a fantasy world with a cast of amazing, diverse characters. The premise is that some people can summon demons, making them summoners and they go to a school to learn what that means. I wont say anything else because I want you to not be spoiled .. so READ THIS SERIES.

    This is the best finale to a fantasy trilogy i have read in a while.. considering i just devoured the full book in one sitting today, I think that proves I love it.

    OK,.... Taran.. this next bit is for you..

    I am so incredibly happy that I went into your publishers offices that spring day two years ago. I remember when was briefly told in passing about this new, amazing fantasy story that is coming out that following May and that it was something they knew i would love. Then I remember when I nearly was able to take a copy home, but then was promised one would be sent to my home the following day.

    Two days later, a package arrived. In that package was more then just a book. It was the gateway to a friendship that i cherish close to my heart.

    I remember us connecting over the fact that i was the first person to leave a review for The Novice online. I remember meeting up for the first time for pizza and a chat. Now, after endless meals out, drinks and laughs I am so glad I can call you my friend.

    The future is so bright for you Taran, I look forward to clapping for your success as we watch you grow and conquer.

    You are brilliant Taran. Thank you for bringing this series into the world and encouraging so many young readers to pick books up. Be proud!

    Fletcher is maybe one of the best characters I've read...he's just generally a

    guy. The kind everybody wants in their corner. He shines in this book. The relationships he has with various characters are a joy to read. And since this is one of those fate-of-the-world finales, there's some heartbreak too. But that in itself is a kind of victory for authors, yea? They've made us care about these fictional characters.

    I still can't quite figure out if I'd classify this as YA or middle grade. I mean, I'd lean toward YA...but it just

    more like a middle grade. Because that makes total sense.
