    1. Nice introduction to the series. It has a bit of a Harry Potter vibe and I quite liked it. I want know more about the characters so I'm looking forward continuing.

    2. Good primer to reading the series starting next month. Although the themes are nothing new I did like the world, characters and writing style.

    3. This didn't tell a lot that wasn't in the first book but it was nice to get a refresher of sorts on characters and the summoning process both of which I might not have grasped firmly earlier.

    6. 3 stars.Very pleasant prequel to the Summoner. I liked the concept of demons as familiars. The story, however not that original, is a very cosy read.

    7. This book is obviously written for the younger audience. I know one should expect such with YA, but as an adult you feel yourself rolling your eyes at the type of language use or the way the hero speaks so blatantly. But then, I am impressed when adults can write like this. Not that Matharu is patronising, not at all. His words bring vibrancy to the world of Hominum, and his younger readers will not realise their vocabulary swell with the generals wearing their “tasselled epaulettes” on thei [...]

    9. A nice introduction to the series. A light and entertaining read. I liked the characters and the magic system and enjoyed the writing style.

    10. OriginsPrequel FunOrigins takes place quite a few years before the first novel of the Summoner series, The Novice; and it’s really quite excellent. Revolving around the mysterious character of Arcturus (a professor in the first novel), we discover how he got into the academy and where exactly he fitted in, in the social spectrum of things. We find out some interesting things within the first novel that are also discussed within this book so it was fun to find out the more intricate details. It [...]

    11. I was introduced to the Summoner world through wattpad, and The Novice and later the Origins were some of the first books that really captivated me. I loved the universe of summoners and demons, and I was insanely excited about the Origins ebook. My reaction at finding out it was available as a free ebook on the kindle storeSo naturally, I downloaded it that instant and retreated into my little reading-shell for a couple of hours while I devoured it.It was everything I expected and more. Arcturu [...]

    12. про Арктура читать было интересно, но уж больно его история похожа на историю Флетчера. да и персонаж тоже. хотя увидеть всех взрослых детьми было весьма любопытно.спойлеры.помощник конюха Арктур прочёл свиток, отобрал демона сахариссу у Чарльза, попал в школу, изучил азы. [...]

    13. Oooooh yes! This was a little gem and I loved it - I only wish it was longer! Here we have the back story of Arcturus, who by know you may know from your spell casting lesions in The Noviced if you don't you get to know him a whole lot more and continue your journey.Even though I cant actually pronounce his name I really like Arcturus and it was great to have his back story which was spoken a little about in The Novice but here we get to experience it and in a similar was to The Novice it really [...]

    14. I was so happy after finishing The Novice to realise there was a novella and, at 100 pages, this novella is decent sized and gives just the right amount of story.Origins takes place when Summoners realise that commoners and not only nobles have the chance to summon demons and perform magic. Arcturus, who is Fletcher's mentor and teacher in The Novice, is the main character in Origins and the novella gives the reader a look at Votans in a way the other book didn't. The Novice is set in a time whe [...]

    15. 3.5 starsI had downloaded it on my Kindle ages ago and still hadn't gotten to reading it. (FYI, it's free on amazon so go ahead and download it).Surprisingly I liked it. But I felt that many more things could have been added but then again it was just a prequel. And mostly the thing that was going through my mind was wow I don't remember much from The Novice and after that I went to re-read or maybe glance in from chapter to chapter just so I will have a good idea about the plot. I can't wait to [...]

    16. Nice prologue to the Summoner-series. It definitely makes a new reader curious about the first book The Novice and is a good 'follow-up' for anyone who has already read The Novice and/or The Inquisition already.

    17. He keeps bloody teasing me. Mr. Matharu your series is the number one that I have been looking forward to. Once I am done I am reading it all over again. Please, if you care, give me the second book. I look at the titles and I am more excited than my own girlfriend (which has never happend before).

    18. I really enjoyed this prequel to the Summoner trilogy! Arcturus is a commoner who can summon a demon. When discovered, he's sent to Vocans Military Academy to learn the art of summoning demons.

    19. I love the backstory you get with this novella. I wanted to know more about this particular story when I read the first book so it's great that this exists!4/5 stars

    20. Mit "Die Dämonenakademie" hat Taran Matharu sich nicht nur in das Herz vieler seiner Wattpad-Leser geschrieben, sondern er konnte auch einen Verlag mit der Trilogie überzeugen und erobert nun die Leserherzen von Fantasyfans weltweit. Darunter auch meins. Zwei der Bände der Trilogie sind schon erschienen und um die Wartezeit auf den 3 Band zu verkürzen, der erst im Januar 2018 auf Deutsch erscheint, musste ich natürlich auch die Spin-off-Geschichte zu Fletchers Lehrer Arcturus lesen.Vorab: E [...]

    21. snowyy13.wordpress/2017/1Ich finde die Dämonenakademie Reihe so super, dass ich jede zusätzliche Kurzgeschichte nicht auslassen kann. Die Welt, die Charaktere und auch die Dämonen haben so etwas einzigartiges, dass ich es nur jedem Fantasy Lover ans Herz legen kann.In dieser Kurzgeschichte begegnen wir unserem guten Freund Arcturus, der seine Geschichte erzählt, wie er als Bürgerlicher in die Dämonenakademie kam. Normalerweise haben nur die Adligen die Gabe einen Dämonen zu bändigen, doc [...]

    22. Excelente introdução, trama muito bem trabalhada que só te faz querer saber o que vai acontecer a seguir. Empolgado para ler a série toda. Tem um ar de que talvez possa ser algo como um novo Harry Potter, mas não acho que a história irá pra esse lado.

    23. Well damn it I want more of Arcturus' back story and I want it now lol. I loved seeing all of the adult characters from the novice back in the schoolboy days. I still want my very own Sacharissa!

    24. Great readLoved reading this was great to get a look into the past before novice. Now I have to continue to wait for book 3 can't come fast enough

    25. I loved reading about Arcturus as a teenager. His origin story is similar to Fletcher, but it was a wild ride for such a short story. I wish the author would write a series about Arcturus! Some violence, minimal mild cursing, and such a fun look into the earlier lives of a lot of the adults in the Summoner Trilogy.

    26. Parece ser muito interessante essa série, ela se passa em um universo com bastante potencial.

    27. OriginTitle kinda covers it. Went into detail more of the professors childhood which is cool. Good to know Charles and rook were always giant Richards. The wendigo and Minotaur fight was nice as well.

    28. Original review posted hereThis is a quick, easy to read prequel to The Novice, Book One in the series by Taran Mathuru that everyone seems to be talking about right now, which is easy to see why when it's described as Harry Potter meets Pokémon.I actually enjoyed this more than The Novice, which I read first. It's interesting to see how Arcturus started out, especially as he has similar underdog qualities to the next book's protagonist, Fletcher. It adds colour to some of the background things [...]

    29. I literally finished reading this last night and was amazed at how much I really enjoyed it. It's a short little prequel to the main Summoner books but it's perfectly formed and is a wonderful and rich story in it's own right.Arcturus was a stable boy who found he had the ability to summon demons in the way that is usually only held by the upper classes, the first born nobles. After a run in with a noble boy that leaves Arcturus in accidental possession of the boy's demon and a subsequent face-t [...]
