    Inhaltsangabe

    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.

    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!

    Godly narrator meets awfully written MC.

    The main character is so awfully whiny and rather stupid and in terms of depth just shallow... The author seems just to have mixed every niche characteristic he could think of: shy, awkward, introverted, asexual but maybe homosexual, dense, a little bit of autism and aspergers and on top just a tad of domesric abuse, in to a blender WITHOUT any redeeming qualities to balance it. There is just no way this has gone through any professional editor.

    He has no wit, no spark, no cunning and is completely helpless and doesn't even actively drive the story forward.
    He is beeing introduced to have trained soo hard to find his brother to climb the tower but he knows NOTHING like absolutely NOTHING of the world he grew up in, he is completely utterly oblivious to anything you would imagine is common knowledge to anyone let alone someone whose one and only drive is to find his brother... Like wtf has he been doing all this time?! It probably wouldnt have bothered me too much if it wasn't the f'ing premise we are introduced to, thats just completely contradictional.
    The Cherry on top are those eeeeeeendlessly mind numbing internal monolouges which arent the least bit entertaining and try so hard to give him depth with all his insecurities and doubts and flinching and oh no i used 2 mana, i don't want to overuse my attunement and so on and so on and so forth.

    The magic system is one of the plus points for this book, if any of the characters would have been made with even half the enthusiasm as all the different aspects we get to know about magic, this book could have been a great book.

    Schade

    Dieses Buch ist toll! Naja zumindest für alle die sich einmal gefragt haben wie sich die Nebencharaktere in einer Geschichte gefühlt haben. Den unser vermeintlicher Held in diesem Buch hat nichts anderes zustande gebracht als mit offenem Mund an der Seitenlinie zu stehen und allen anderen Charakteren dabei zuzusehen wie sie die Geschichte vorantreiben. Vom "Powerlevel" ist er schwächer als alle seine Mitstreiter und das um ein gutes Stück. Er macht seine schwächen in Sachen Kampfkraft aber leider auch nicht durch Intelligenz oder Führungskompetenz wett.
    Ich wollte mehrere male aufgeben SPOILER ( vor allem bei dem Survivalmatch und als er sein Schwert an seine Schwester gegeben hat)..... aber dann hätte ich nicht mit gutem Gewissen diesem die Bewertung geben können wie ich es getan habe.

    Schade denn der Schreibstil des Autors war sehr Anfangs sehr vielversprechend...

    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.

    Empfehlung, v.a. wenn man auf Details steht

    Der Sprecher ist fantastisch, die Geschichte spannend und der Hauptcharakter mit seiner Unbeholfenheit im sozialen Bereich sehr sympathisch.
    Alles "mechanische" wird genau und logisch erklärt und on Detail beschrieben. Jeder Charakter bringt etwas eigenes mit und bereichert die Geschichte, was der - ich kann es nur noch mal betonen - fantastische Sprecher auch super rüberbringt und jeder Figur Leben einhaucht.
    Ich konnte das Hörbuch kaum wegpacken und habe mir auch direkt den nächsten Teil geholt!

    Es wird immer besser

    Nach der ersten Stunde wollte ich erst aufhören das Hörbuch zu hören, aber jetzt kann ich es kaum erwarten den zweiten Teil zu hören. Dran Leinen lohnt sich!
