Tris harbors a deep secret. In a land where spirits walk openly and influence the affairs of the living, he suspects he may be the mage heir to the power of his grandmother, Bava Kaa, once the greatest sorceress of her age. Such magic would make Tris a Summoner, the rarest of magic gifts, capable of arbitrating between the living and the dead.

Not half bad
While waiting for a couple of other series to continue (Wheel of Time, Kingkiller Chronicles and Stormlight Archives) I decided to try this series.
While it is your classic good vs evil fantasy story with your standard character types, I must say I rather like the way this book is written. The writer takes time to introduce the characters properly and while perhaps the action side of fantasy is lacking somewhat (there are battles but nothing epic yet) I feel this is a good setup for what is to come.
I would not call any of the characters or even the story original but with fantasy you usually have your archetypes anyway so I don't mind. The characters and setting are interesting enough to make me want to continue the story.
So if you need something to listen to while waiting for other series to continue, or if you feel like a well written (and performed book) give this a try
