But, for a story that's supposed to be about a peaceful man learning to fight to avenge his family, the main character barely mentions them.
Instead, he is accepted into a compound of mostly women, routinely abused and put down, and several attempts are made to force him to have sex with women against his will.
In one scene, a woman tells, not the MC, but his girlfriend, that he will be sleeping with her tonight. When he refuses, the Queen/Leader/Coven head (All three titles are used interchangeably) attempts to force him, with him having to threaten to leave to escape the forced sex.
This is AFTER the Queen/Leader/Coven head attempted to force him herself, and was only denied, because she didn't have the permission of his 'master'....the Master at Arms of the compound, who also tells him he's useless, and promises to beat him up to avenge the 'insult' of him not having sex with the Queen/Leader/Coven head.
His family comes to visit, but instead of telling them about the abuse and attempts to force him into sex, they just teach him some magic and leave again.
After only a week, the MC is fighting 'sorcerers' (We have no idea how sorcerers are different from witches, except they are all male and unpleasant) and enslaving them, as apparently, when you lose a single battle, you lose all your magic and are enslaved to the person who beat you.
Despite the MC winning and enslaving four sorcerers, he's still told he's weak and useless.
I couldn't finish this book, the themes and normalisation of forced sex, degradation and abuse were not enjoyable.
As other have mentioned the "constantly made to feel stupid even though you keep saving our bacon" grew very tiring pretty quickly as well as the abuse-fest that seems to be the norm in his world.
Has to be a YA attemp. I cant recommend for any age group.
To me it is a little 'tongue in cheek' as seems very funny the whole challenge with first spells and then they punch 'each others lights out' so to speak. I really liked all the different characters, for example Tess, Gill, Don were fun. I thought it was a fun light hearted book in some ways although the start was pretty horrible and some of the revenge was bit brutal but on the whole it was great. Ok, the young guy is like a magic prodigy the way he just hits the deck running with his skills growing literally daily but that is part of the story. I love the way he always gives back chat to a main leader and basically he is a good guy that loves to help heal animals with his special skill and avoids gratuitous sex and refuses multiple partners (bummer......,lol).
Sure, this is not a New York Times best seller or the next Tom Clancy, I mean this is a 99 cent book and I reckon outstanding value for that price. Part of the reason for my 5 stars is related to price, if this was a $10 book i might be saying 3 stars as I would expect a lot more, more content, better quality story etc etc
