Description

Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess.

He never returned.

Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

If he can survive the trials, Corin will earn an attunement, but that won't be sufficient to survive the dangers on the upper levels. For that he's going to need training, allies, and a lot of ingenuity.

The journey won't be easy, but Corin won't stop until he gets his brother back.

Levels doesn't matter

So the levels of the power doesn't really matter as you can see even a first year student can hold off experienced higher level opponents with some prepping. Let's just make up stuff while we go, shall we? And the LGBT bit was dropped in like a bomb without preamble. It is got a good world setup but all gone to waste.

The protagonist gets on your nerves...

I almost sent this book back, but I kept slogging through it because the story had some potential. I liked some of the characters, some interesting plot twists, but it could not stay on track. It obviously is playing on the success of the Harry Potter line, which I really enjoyed, but it did not do a good job. The plot had "dragon-sized" holes in it. The Tristan "thread" did not ring true or authentic. The whole story with Corin's family was very thin. What is up with Mom?! Corin's level of angst, second-guessing himself and seeming incompetence (which the author describes in excruciating, annoying detail) does not make sense based on the level of training he did. This book was unnecessarily long (please don't have a spell that takes over five seconds to say while you are in combat!). Having said all that I did finish the book. I am still debating whether I will buy the second book. I have not read the reviews and I don't know if I can take any more of Corin Cadence. If I do, I will have to change my mindset. Just try to enjoy what is done well. I read/listen to a lot of this genre. This is not IMHO a book as good as Rowling, Card, Bujold, Hearne but it has some good points...just not enough of them.

Feels like an RPG

In most magic based series it's hard to understand how strong/skilled a person really is and even harder to truly understand their growth. This author made it a whole lot easier by giving us actual numbers and words any gamer could easily understand. One of the reviews here states the reader couldn't get passed a certain point because the protagonist of the series isn't remotely as skilled with magic as the reader assumed he would be based on the characters background, I happen to disagree, but maybe we understood that background a little differently. The main character grew up in a family famous for being very skilled in regards to dueling. In fact it is their militaristic prowess that helped them become nobles in the first place, the author makes it clear that the character was pulled out of public school to be privately trained for the previous 5 years in the art of dueling. And one could assume this meant magic too, but reading onward you should realize that until they receive an attunement magicians are fairly weak and have little to no useful skills. Thus, the character was brought up as a "melee" duelist, he happens to be far more skilled than most of his peers in terms of physical combat. Not magic although he certainly has potential. I'm not in any way a writer so please pardon any grammatical errors, I have also begun the second book so I'll stop here to avoid any spoilers. Give this series a shot, I definitely believe it deserves it.

juvenile

I assume the target audience is teens, because this book has no plot whatsoever. it's like a lame D&D RPG game brought to life. It essentially starts in a dungeon and assumes the reader gets excited by listening to how someone else chooses their adventure. literally that's how new characters are introduced....random encounters.

Book is pretty bad

The narration is good, but the story is honestly not very good and poorly written.

Author deceives audience for first 3/4 of book.

75% of the way in you find out its just pushing authors agenda. which is sad because i really loved the world. And i really liked the over analyzing. Then, with absolutely 0 buildup or any foreshadowing the main character is now gay. even though he spent the whole book noticing female beauty. Im ok with a gay protaganist, just please dont change personality mid way to make a name for yourself.

Performance can't overcome poor story :/

I had high hopes for this series, but it really is a 2/5 in many ways. I don't have much to say on this book except it's very cringey in many spots, and I would really like to be warned ahead of time before they talk about underage homosexual potential. I am actually going to return this book if I can and this is only second time I've done this. Be warned - although minor and not graphic, normal dudes just do not want to hear about homosexual stuff, period. I have 2 friends who are gay, but the last thing I ever want to hear is about teenage boys having a crush on one another and thank god they didn't put anything graphic in this book or I woulda stopped it immediately. I will not purchase book 2 and I highly recommend people are prepared for a very boring book that uses the word disconcerting a ton. Also the magic system is really bland and the main character is a scared ass who's outshone by his sister and several others

Lackluster

Book has interesting concepts but main character is needlessly ignorant of many seemingly well known concepts in the world. For a person who was privately trained to be a magical warrior he seems to have missed a large portion of the magical part. Was hard to keep listening and finally dropped it when the author randomly added a love path with an interesting character out of no where for seemingly no reason or purpose.

Completely misleading book

This book had me pulled in and relating with the main character and took an awful turn in an attempt to be edgy.

You should know the term LitRPG before reading

This book is like Zelda and Harry Potter had a baby. That might be good or bad. If you are looking for a book that is conventional fantasy with a complex story and deep charakters this is bad. If you are looking for looting and leveling with more than 50% fighting this is good for you.

Altbekannte Ausgangssituation + viel kreativ-Neues

Fühlt sich stellenweise wie ein Computerspiel an:
Es gibt einen magischen Turm (bzw mehrere) in dem neue Magierschüler ihre Aufnahme bestehen müssen, um magische Fertigkeiten zu erlangen. Umso höher im Turm, umso schwerer die Gegner/Rätsel/Hindernisse. Später geht's ab in die Schule (perfektes Setting um als Leser stufenweise in die Welt der Magie eingeführt zu werden), dort trifft man Freunde und Feinde (Harry Potter hat es gut vorgemacht) bis schließlich im geheimen Alleingang gegen die Regeln verstoßen werden muss um den Tag zu retten. Soviel dazu.
Ich fand den Schreibstil dabei so angenehm zynisch trocken, die Herangehensweise des Hauptcharakter mit seinen vielen vielen Ideen und aufgewecktem "das könnte man doch auch noch probieren" und "schön dass du denkst, das könnte ein Problem sein, ich probier das jetzt einfach" sehr unterhaltsam und abwechslungsreich.
Viel Spaß beim Hören!

An intricate & poetic masterpiece

The plot and the fantasy - world is outstanding in its complexity and detail, paired with beautiful - partly seemingly poetic wording. I found it very easy to understand and agree with the main protagonist decision which made immersion really easy - a very interesting character. However, a great (audio) book is nothing without an equally amazing voice actor. Safe to say that I am very glad that this voice actor belongs now to one of my favourites because of his great voice variety, sound and way of painting an entire fantasy world. 5/5 - I definitely recommend this audio book! The only thing that saddens my mood right now, is the long time that will pass until the sequel will be published; however I look forward to that day and I will surely be among the first ones to buy it. Great job!

The reader is 6 out of 5 stars.

The many voices and accents of the reader are so much fun. The story is a fun and interesting introduction into a fantasy world that has more inspiration from pen&paper and anime than i am used to read. Had a great time and will listen to the next book immediately.

the problem with the power of friendship

Let me just say, this is a good fantasy book. I enjoyed the time listening to it apart from having to hear the same spell incantations over and over again (the speaker made this worse with his melodramaticism), I really enjoyed the humor of the author and overall writing style. The main character was actually witty, smart and it didnt feel forced. (reminded me a bit of the humor in skullduggery pleasant ) I would recommend this book to people that are new to the fantasy genre and like lighthearted storys, but i wouldnt tell fantasy-veterans (or people with developed taste in storys) to read this. The charackters are only mildly interesting (except for the main charackter and the prisoner) and none of the turning points in the story came as a suprise. Personally i am just tired of feel good storys where no charqckter actions have actual consequences. Every bad thing that happens to the main charackter and his friends, just gets solved with healing magic. Since this book refrences to videogames (mmorpgs) and you get to know powerlvls of charackters through mana and auras, the reader has the chance to understand, that kids with shitty powerlvl should die in combat situations in no time. this isnt a problem in school trials, since there is some form of supervision but rather, later on in the story. I dont understand why the "power of friendship" trope is still so overused in fantasy. sure friends are usefull and can help a great deal but giving everybodsy around the main-char plot armor because they are friendly is just dumb. It should be the other way around if anything, the protagonist is usually involved in dangerous situation, this should also mean being a friend of him/her should put the friends at a risk of dieing. One of the books that does this right is the Night Angel Trilogy, there the actions of the main charackter actually matter even tho he has some amount of "plot-armor"- I give this Book 3.6/5.

Der Sprecher ist phänomenal

Das Buch ist super! Jede Menge detaillierte Gesetze der Magie und wie man sie anwenden kann. Und man erlebt und lernt das alles gemeinsam mit dem Hauptcharakter Corin, aus dessen Perspektive die Geschichte erzählt wird. Der Sprecher spricht dabei alles so lebensecht und humorvoll und lässt wirklich jeden Charakter unterschiedlich wirken. Einfach eine meisterhafte Kombination!

Schöne Geschichte

Insgesamt eine tolle Geschichte, die Spaß macht. Einziger genereller Kritikpunkt ist eine m.E. vollkommen deplatzierte Homophilie in einer Nebensequenz, die bis auf eine weitere Erwähnung vollkommen künstlich erscheint, was lediglich den Eindruck hinterlässt, hier auf den derzeitigen Hype aufzuspringen. Wenn das Thema nicht implementiert ist, scheint das Buch „offensichtlich“ nicht vollkommen zu sein. Da es sonst Beziehungen (außer die zu Vater, Mutter, Mentor, Freundschaft) komplett ausklammert, wirkt dieser 60-Sekundenexkurs vollkommen erzwungen und passt so gar nicht in diese Fantasy-Story, welche sich generell dem typischen diversen Gender-Hype entzieht, und deren Stärken in ganz anderen Bereichen stecken. Schade. Deswegen der Abzug eines Sterns für die Story.

Wow

Loved it. The whole world with it’s different styles of magic. A few twists and turns here and there. Awesome narration as well. Highly recommended
