Editorial Reviews


"This is a book for people who like deep, mysterious worlds and complex, well defined magic systems" -Reviews, Amazon Reviewer

"A great story that flows well from beginning to end. The main character has both flaws and skills and the cast of characters are fleshed out and believable!" - J.Taylor, Amazon Reviewer

"I really enjoyed the complex magic system. It was a fun read and I already can't wait for the next ones!" -J, Amazon Reviewer

From the Author

This book is my love letter to Japanese role-playing games ("JRPGs") like Final Fantasy, the Tales series, Dragon Quest, etc. It also draws from the tropes in shonen anime and xianxia fiction, though to a lesser extent.

A part of my goal was to write a story where game mechanics exist in the world, but they're clearly explained and researched by characters within the setting. For example, "respawning" monsters exist, and characters have researched why and how this happens.

There are a lot of game-like elements in the story, including (but not limited to) the way magic works. If you like game-like worlds and magic, you'll probably enjoy those elements of this story. If you don't enjoy tons of magic system detail, you're probably better off skipping this one.

For those of you that are checking this out from the "LitRPG" community, this is not a pure LitRPG - it's more of a mix between a traditional fantasy novel and a LitRPG. There are no user interfaces or chat logs here - this does not literally take place within a video game, just in a world that is intended to *feel* like a RPG world.
