Inhaltsangabe

Corin Cadence finally has a firm reason to believe his brother, Tristan, is still alive. Unfortunately, finding more information isn’t going to be easy. Tristan appears to be entangled with a clandestine organization that calls themselves Whispers. And Corin’s last brush with the Whispers didn’t exactly end well.

As much as he wants to follow that lead, Corin has more pressing problems to deal with. Sera is still suffering from a mysterious malady that has stolen her voice and her magic. Corin knows that a portion of that is his fault, and he’s determined to fix it. His mother is still off in another country, and there are growing odds that she’s involved with a conspiracy to overthrow the visages.

Corin has also been branded with a new magical mark on his right hand - one that even veteran climbers don’t seem to recognize. He’s going to need to figure out how it works, otherwise it could be more of a vulnerability than an asset.

Corin still hasn’t finished his first year at Lorian Heights. If he fails his final exams, he’ll be sent off to the military and lose his chance to investigate his brother’s fate. And finally, there’s the issue of enemies. He might have made a few of them.

The biggest problem? He’s not sure if Jin, once one of his closest companions, is one of them.

Just what I'd expected

Good book, some cringy jokes, some great fights, constant progress for the main Charakter :)

Keeps the huge promise of the firtst book

I loved the first book and was hoping the second wouldn't disappoint. Needless to say, I am satisfied.

More magic, bigger battles and more sharp interactions

Masterpiece in every way.

Andrew Rowe is a superb author and Podehl is a genius at what he does.
Can't wait for the next part.

Book 2

Strong continuation of a well crafted story and intricate world building. Recommended for people also not too fond of LitRpg

Good book, poor pacing

I have also enjoyed the 4th Andrew Rowe I have encountered, Arcane Ascension 2 is another nice book for RPG fans. The characters are interesting, the magic system intricate. However, the plot does not really develop very well in this book. The problem is that the bigger picture is almost not dealt with until 18 hours into the book and much like in GRRM's latest book it seems that the author only then noticed that the overall plot should maybe be a bit developed in this book. That leads to so much happening in the last couple of hours that it feels clogged and hasted. Overall, the book is enjoyable no question! It will be a long wait for the 3rd but it is no masterpiece.

good book

the transgender part of the story is unnecessary and does not add anything. feels like propaganda pushing.

Lacks a storyline

The first part in the series was somewhat entertaining, but this one is just awful.
