The Summoner - Gail Z. Martin7.76

The world of Prince Martris Drayke is thrown into sudden chaos and disorder when his brother murders their father and seizes the throne. Cast out, Martris and a small band of trusted friends are forced to flee to a neighbouring kingdom where he believes they can regroup and plot their retaliation. With only a handful of loyal colleagues to support him, he must seek retribution and restore his father’s honour. But if the living are arrayed against him, Martris must call on a different set of allies: the ranks of the dead.

The Summoner is an epic, engrossing tale of loss and revenge, of life and afterlife – and the thin line between them. It will appeal to all fans of Robin Hobb, Lois McMaster Bujold and Terry Goodkind.

The Summoner marks the debut of a stunning new talent in the fantasy firmament, and the beginning of an epic story that will leave readers gasping for more.
