This is the first book of the Summoner series that I have read, and I thought it was a good place to start in this series since it is a prequel novel. This book hooks you from the beginning, and it keeps you entertained because it is full of intrigue, mystery, and a lot of action that allows for perfect pacing for this book.
The book was well-written, and the characters were very well developed. The world was fantastically written, and you are able to fully see this world in your mind.
I definitely look forward to reading the rest of the series as soon as I can get my hands on the books, and any other series or books that this author has published or plans to publish. I would definitely recommend this novel.
