Exclusive: Taran Matharu reveals cover for ‘The Summoner’s Handbook’

If you’ve ever wanted to get up close and personal with any of the characters from Taran Matharu’s Summoner series, then The Summoner’s Handbook is for you!

Book 1 in the Summoner series starts with The Novice, which follows a man named Fletcher who discovers he has the ability to summon demons from another world. Forced out of his village, he travels to a school that promises to teach him about his gift. But, as is always the case, dark forces are afoot.

“Delve deeper into the world of Summoner, with the Summoner’s Handbook!” Matharu tells us. “Read the journal that started it all, and rediscover Vocans through the eyes of the commoner, James Baker. The guide contains a fully illustrated and complete demonology and spellbook, with assorted drawings, maps, diagrams and sketches throughout! You’ll learn everything a Summoner should and more.”

This new addition to the Summoner series sounds like it’s a perfect treat for new and old fans alike, though there’s something special for those who hold the original books near and dear to their heart:

“You may even see Easter eggs that reveal what really occurred behind the scenes in the original trilogy, and even catch a glimpse into the future, seeing what happened to Fletcher and his friends after The Battlemage,” Matharu continues. “Beautifully rendered in two tone colours and full of detailed sketches from artists David North and Nicolas Delort, this is a must for Summoner fans.”

But that’s enough talk. You came here to see the cover for the first time, didn’t you? Well, then, without further ado…

The Summoner’s Handbook by Taran Matharu will be available to purchase on Oct. 2, 2018. In the meantime, you can pre-order it from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or IndieBound, or you can add it to your Goodreads list!
