Hello Ladies and Gents
I am here today to bring you another review of a book that I think you guys will totally enjoy. DO you love Demons, mystery,suspense, corruption, and Elves? Well of course you do because you have amazing reading taste. I am here today to share with you my thoughts about the second installment of “The Summer Series” by the creative writing style of Taran Matharu. Tara Matharu is a great example of someone who is passionate about not only tier characters but also the entire environment in which his character have to reside. Honestly I feel like Matharu would be the best DM if he were to play Dungeons & Dragons. He would probably have this entire team constantly wishing and hoping for their characters survival. the same way he holds the attention of his readers.
This installment is exactly what fans of the first book, “The Novice” needed and author Taran Matharu sure did developer! We needed a fast pace book that would complete against the slower paste the first book. I felt that the first book was slower only because it showcased how naive our protagonist, Fletcher Wolf, was to the world. I know some people took issues with how Fletcher’s characterization. but within the first few chapters of “The” Inquisition” Matharu, truly created a more mature Fletcher, that has experiences the best along with the worst that the world could offer him. Tara definitely went about giving the character Fletcher his lovable loyal description that most readers fell in love with. Honestly, Fletcher is perfectly in context within the overall plot of the first book, however this two year older Fletcher, is found dealing with consequences of his actions of the first book. This is a great character development that Matharu has given his characters, along with his readers.
This book is fast paste, if you aren’t completely hooked within the first 50 to 100 pages, then we aren’t reading the same book! This book has more to offer than the first book ever could, with more demons, more complex plots and plot reveal, along with heart breaking adrenaline rushing twist and turns within the first chapter. There were times where I HAD to stop reading, but found myself constantly wondering what was going to happen to the characters when I returned. This is how great the paste of this book is, there is truly no reason to ever stop reading or to slow down! Each chapter was written with miniature cliffhangers that only hooked their claws into the readers curiously for the characters safety.
Speaking of characters, there are new characters along with familiar characters that readers might remember or forgotten. I know I did! It makes me really annoyed when a character makes a decision that I feel is obviously a bad choice, but I did not have any of those moments when it came to Fletcher 2.0. He made all the right decisions that I would have given if I were to be in that or a similar situation. I really love how the new environment of the characters have created a more dynamic focus between their friendship. I really enjoyed how intense the missions are, and how important each of the characters me to each other during these trying times of war. The last given to the characters in this installment of the Summoner Series really give great value to how important each friendship means in volumes to just just each other but to the entire kingdom!
There is also a little bit of romance in this story that makes me REALLY excited, I mean R-E-A-L-L-Y EXCITED! It’s so subtle, which is exactly how it should be done. Seriously, who has time for romance when you’re in the middle of a war? Umm everyone! It just can’t be so obvious, or at least not yet! I am so excited for the future ships I see starting to form within this book. Yes I know this book is more about war, demons, the Orc war, but I can’t help it! I am a creature of romances! Who says you can’t kick but and hold on to someone tightly at the same time! NO ONE!
Overall I really found this novel to be simply amazing. I don’t ever think a 5 star novel could stay a 5 star novel. There are times within a series, that I found the second book to either be either worst or better than the first book. I didn’t expect for Taran Matharu to keep my interest at 5 stars through both books! He really did! O-M-G he’s really an amazingly talented writer. I can’t believe this is just a trilogy. I have s sickling feeling that this series is not going to a trilogy but perhaps he’ll do what Leigh Bardugo did to her Grisha Trilogy? One can only hope! This book is definitely a book that you need to get your hands on and join the fight! It’s just amazing!
Happy Ether Hunring Ya’ll!
