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.

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!

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.

Brilliant!

It took me awhile to get into it, but then I understood the quote on the cover. Why sleep if you could listen to this book? The slow parts are as gripping as the fast-moving ones and after I was hooked I was never bored. The speaker did his job well, while the women didn't have the most heavenly voices (a bit difficult to do with a deep voice) he used suitable accents for different characters (even if it's all fictional). I'm glad the second book has just come out!

Interesting universe and story, flat characters

I liked the story alot but the characters lack depth and are unconvincing and act sometimes unreasonable. Also the Author uses the protagonist as storyteller with too many expositions for my taste.

Captivating story. Plot twists. Awesome magic!

Loved this book and can't wait for the second one. All the magic used and explained by a system and learned at a university.

Snarky protagonist

a good story with a very quirky protagonist that is both annoying and endearing. The main character's struggles deel real. Pacing is a little slow at times but the characters are well made.
