Demons, magic and epic adventure - the first book in the New York Times bestselling Summoner Trilogy has been chosen for World Book Day.

Fletcher was nothing more than a humble blacksmith's apprentice, when a chance encounter leads to the discovery that he has the ability to summon demons from another world. Chased from his village for a crime he did not commit, he must travel with his new demon to the Vocans Academy, where the gifted are trained in the art of summoning.

The academy will put Fletcher through a gruelling lessons, training him as a battlemage to fight in the Hominum Empire's war against the savage orcs. Rubbing shoulders with the children of the most powerful nobles in the land, Fletcher must tread carefully. The power hungry Forsyth twins lurk in the shadows, plotting to further their family's interests. Then there is Sylva, an elf who will do anything she can to forge an alliance between her people and Hominum, even if it means betraying her friends. Othello is the first ever dwarf at the academy, and his people have long been oppressed by Hominum's rulers, which provokes tension amongst those he studies alongside.

Fletcher will find himself caught in the middle of powerful forces - with no one but his demon Ignatius by his side, Fletcher must decide where his loyalties lie. The fate of the empire is in his hands...
