The Inquisition: Summoner: Book Two (The Summoner Trilogy #2) (Paperback)
Second in Taran Matharu’s New York Times bestselling epic fantasy Summoner Trilogy, The Inquisition is an action-packed adventure of a young man gifted—or cursed—with an extraordinary and terrifying power…
A year has passed since the Tournament. Fletcher and Ignatius have been locked away in Pelt's dungeons, but now they must face trial at the hands of the Inquisition, a powerful institution controlled by those who would delight in Fletcher's downfall.
The trial is haunted by ghosts from the past with shocking revelations about Fletcher's origins, but he has little time to dwell on them; the graduating students of Vocans are to be sent deep into the orc jungles to complete a dangerous mission for the king and his council. If they fail, the orcish armies will rise to power beyond anything the Empire has ever seen.
With loyal friends Othello and Sylva by his side, Fletcher must battle his way to the heart of Orcdom and save Hominum from destruction . . . or die trying.
This paperback edition includes an interview with the author, a special sneak peek of the sequel, The Battlemage, and more.

Praise for The Inquisition:
"A fast-paced, familiar tale with strong echoes of Tolkien, Pullman, and Pokémon." —Kirkus Reviews
Praise for The Novice: "A young orphan makes friends (and enemies) at a magic school in this solid series opener. Fletcher is appealing precisely because of his Everyman qualities: he is not the smartest or the strongest, but he is a loyal friend and a fierce fighter against injustice." —Kirkus Reviews
"The appealing characters, fast-paced plot, focus on racial politics, and interesting demon varieties (demonology addendum included) make this an enjoyable read."—School Library Journal
Following 12-year old recently orphaned Joseph on his quest to get his only family back -his beloved horse Sarah- author Gemeinhart brings together race relations in the late 1800's, western lore and a clear-eyed pragmatism that, coupled with his signature action/adventure plot twists and a kindheartedness thread permeating the story, this wonderful, evocative and first rate middle grade title builds on his exceptional debut (The Honest Truth). This is an author that has clearly established himself as a must read for warm hearted, realistic adventures. - Maureen
