Thanks to Netgalley and Hachette Children’s Group for giving me this book to review.
The Outcast is an enjoyable prequel which is fast paced and a good addition to the Summoner series. However, there was no real jeopardy, even in tense situations, and it is annoying that practically all the adults from the main series featured in this book.
I like Arcturus as he is streetwise but also kind and courageous. I loved the growing friendship between Arcturus and Sacha, as they were very protective and caring of each other.
I enjoyed this book and being back the world of the Summoner. I would recommend The Outcast to fans of the main books in the series.
