Book 2

lgmosher May 26, 2020

I can't say that I was thrilled that the first half of the book was trials. Law and order was never my thing.... But Matharu made them interesting enough and moved through them. And I suppose I should have expected as much with the title being "the Inquisition".

Honestly, and I hate to say this about Matharu's work but it doesn't seem to me like there is much character development. While reading I wasn't able to bind with any of the characters. Sure, I cared about what they were doing and why but I didn't get an attachment to any of them.

With that fact, it made.... Dramatic things that should have crushed my soul just... Sad things. I didn't have any major heartbreaks (which I should have with the happenings of the book) and yes some things were a surprise but since I am having a hard time latching onto the characters it didn't do much for me.

It was a big t wordy for me. It seemed that the description went on and on.... With that said, it didn't take too much from the story. It was intriguing and compelled you to keep reading.

With that being said, the story... the plot line Martharu stays true to it and it is indeed a terrific story. It took great turns and still compelled you forward to find out what's going to happen. So I was happy enough with it.

On to number three.

Another action-packed addition to the Summoner series that contains great world-building. For fans of Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings".

I absolutely loved the first book and this second one is a worthy addition to the series. I made sure to request the third book right away because I cannot get enough of this world. The characters are funny and believable and the addition of the demons definitely adds another level of depth and complexity to the story. Many authors might not have handled it as well, but Taran Matharu does it beautifully. I recommend this series to anyone who likes fantasy or is wanting to get into fantasy.

This second installment of Matharu's series lays out all the history and information about Vocans and the entire cast you've already met, as well as future characters. The battle for the world is upon Fletcher, and this riveting tale will keep you on the edge of your seat--and impatient for the next installment!

WHY the SPOILER

I really enjoyed reading this book and could not put it down. But, I felt that the beginning was very drawn out and did not contain anything that was really relevant to the rest of the story (except.... SPOILER ALERT... that Fletcher was a noble). The beginning seemed a bit like page filler to me.

"They loped out of the gloom like a pack of wolves. Scores of orcs, lean, muscular giants with hunched shoulders and heavy brows, puffing great gouts of steaming breath in the chill night air. The short tusks jutting from their lower lips gleamed white in the lantern light, and they held their clubs and axes aloft as they ran."
