Praise for the Summoner series
"A fast-paced, familiar tale with strong echoes of Tolkien, Pullman, and Pokemon." --Kirkus Reviews
"A young orphan makes friends (and enemies) at a magic school in this solid series opener. Fletcher is appealing precisely because of his Everyman qualities: he is not the smartest or the strongest, but he is a loyal friend and a fierce fighter against injustice." --Kirkus Reviews
"The appealing characters, fast-paced plot, focus on racial politics, and interesting demon varieties (demonology addendum included) make this an enjoyable read." --School Library Journal
