The Novice: Summoner: Book One (The Summoner Trilogy) - Taran Matharu

A nonstop action and adventure fantasy story which drew me in quickly and held my attention all through. I thought the world was well thought out and the systems in place were easily relatable. Some characters were a bit predictable but not so much that they were unbearable.  Over all, a good one for fans of sword fights, spells and the underdog coming out on top.

Ran across this series
The Novice's Tale - Margaret Frazer

When I was browsing Brother Cadfael & I'm wondering if any of my BL friends are familiar with it?

 

It's the Sister Frevisse series, set in 1431. Anyone?

My Thoughts:

 

This wasn't a perfect read, but it was fun.

 

Most people put this in the young adult catagory. I feel most middle graders would handle this well.

 

To me it is obvious that this author was greatly infuenced by a lit of other popular novels of this genre, but that does not by any means make this any less of great read. I think this is great blend of everything previous done right, but with an original flare all its own. I found the way the demons worked to be especially interesting.

 

I love that this started on watt pad and really turned Inot something great that got the recognition it deserved.

Why the heck did it take me so long to read this? I really am enjoying this. Big thanks to Bookstooge for the idea on how to plan readinget! If not for that post I a, not sure I would ever have read this.

 

On the side note. I counted how many books I have purchased through Amazon, Google Play, I books, Feedbooks, and other sites that I have not read... too large. Over 150. I don't even want to think about how much money it is that I spent on those books that I will never eventually read... shit, I thought about it. I will post my list soon, in sections. I am organizing my list into series right now.
