Quiz: What Animal Would Your Fantasy Sidekick Be?

This animal sidekick quiz is sponsored by Taran Matharu’s Summoner Series.

When stable boy Arcturus accidentally summons a demon, he becomes Hominum’s first common summoner and the key to a secret that the powerful overlords would do anything to keep hidden.

Whisked away to Vocans Academy, Arcturus finds himself surrounded by enemies. But he has little time to settle in before his life is turned upside down once again, for Hominum Empire is in turmoil.

In the thrilling prequel to the New York Times-bestselling Summoner series, rebellious intent simmers among the masses, and it will not be long before it boils over. Arcturus must choose a side… or watch an Empire crumble.

An ideal companion is similar to your personality, supportive, and able to defend you against enemies. But what animal would be your perfect fantasy sidekick? Take this fun quiz to find out.
