The Outsiders S. The Hobbit 1 year J. Fleeing a criminal sentence, Fletcher lands in cultural center Corcillum and, after another fortuitous intervention, arrives at Vocans Academy.
Previously closed to females, commoners, and members of other species, Vocans now grudgingly accepts all adepts, to Fletcher's delight and the noble students' horror. In between rescuing friends from mobs and entangling himself in the dwarves' rebellion, Fletcher attends class and trains his adorable but deadly Salamander demon.
Plot, dialogue, and characters recall other school-set fantasies, but 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. The detailed setting is a hodgepodge of arrows and ammunition, medieval and industrial, but the few anomalies do not impede the action.
Debut author Matharu tackles class inequalities and racism in the form of speciesism , mixes humor with violence, and plays with fantasy conventions, with varying success. Fantasy readers should enjoy this entertaining, comfortably familiar-feeling adventure featuring an earnest soldier-schoolboy and his demonic sidekick.
After Fletcher and Ignatius, his ferretlike demon, attack the local bully, Fletcher is forced to flee his village. Through a chance encounter with a mage, Fletcher finds himself attending an academy for battle mages.
Trained mages are needed in Hominum's ongoing war with the orcs and in the armed truce against the elves.
