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.

New spin on a dungeon story

I really love this story in the beginning it seems like a straightforward dungeon/tower storyline, and it will probably follow the expected have to climb all of it story. But the storytelling around it and the hints of how there are lot of different powers influencing the outcome as well as the atypical setting of the main character as a support is what makes it interesting in my opinion. I also like the kind of scientist/inventor mindset that's shown where he always is planning on researching or developing things with newly gained knowledge. All in all it is a nice twist and good storytelling to a dungeon type story

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.

Magie & Story

Was will man mehr als Fantasy Fan wie komplexe Charaktere, eine sehr gute / interessante Story, Magie und Schwerter!?
Dieses Buch erfüllt alles zu 100%!

Ich konnte nicht aufhören es zu hören bis ich durch war und nun hasse ich mich dafür, weil Teil 2 noch nicht veröffentlicht ist :(

Alleine der letzte Satz in Teil 1 steigt das Verlangen nach mehr!

Kann es jedem empfehlen!
