It is a very engrossing, extremely well written story. You will not regret spending coffee money on something as awesome as this!
This book is one of the most engaging stories I have read in years and I've already read the story multiple times. I will continue to avidly follow Alex across his literary multiverse.
5/5 stars, why haven't you already added this book to your cart?
The characters are realistic, the magic system is creative but coherent, and the play with history/theology is fun to read. I'm hoping the quality sticks with later books, but I'm hooked for now.
Apocalypse, and enough unique ideas to stand on its own. Good action narration.

I loved the beginning, it posted so many opportunities and character developments in sight, and this is what upset me the most. I understand the book was written fast, small passages at a time, and this might be a direct fault of that: the character development is almost inexistent. Yes, we see him unlock powers and have clever moments, but you never really connect with him. There's never really a moment where the story gives you the time to asses what is going on with his life or feelings. He's told to "roll with it" and I feel we're told that as well.
We get exciting characters that pose so many questions and we see them start to slowly change. But why? As a reader, I haven't felt further apart from any characters as o felt reading this. And when we finally get to see a real backstory, where there is a real emotional reason for someone being "evil", the character's entire moral code is rewritten in almost a single paragraph as "mad". I wanted to feel it, where was the exact moment it happened? How he got there. It seems almost too generic.
Lastly, too many unnecessary branching stories. I understand the main plot line, and all subplots should derive from that and converge. They do not. Most of them are added for what seems to be a comedic reason, but they become an important part of the story?? with every side story added, we are given another "enemy" for the main plot, to the point where it becomes too tedious and almost obvious the main character will win.
This makes the character's initial main focus fades into petty politics and drama between him and other characters. This was the most disappointing part.
In all, I think the story juggles too much between advancing the plot and trying to find ways to place characters in situations they wouldn't be in just to finish the arcs. Felt rushed.
Its such a good story that i decided to buy the ebooks to re-read while waiting for the next installment of the saga.
If you buy it, you wont be disappointed.
I am an avid reader in my spare time but I am also very busy so I am usually very picky about how I spend my time. I found however that when reading this book I couldn't put it down, the story would suck me in and not let go and I had to make myself put it down so I could go and be productive.
Now the book is not without its faults, as any book is subject too, especially independently published books, it does have the occasional spelling or grammar error, however a majority of them are minor and there are very few.
I originally read the book when Alex published the first draft on his blog, now for anyone who did the same and is wondering why they should also read this, I can tell you from first hand experience that it is very worth it. Almost every part has some new addition to it, adding to the story and better explaining the thought process of all the characters.
Overall I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has the slightest interest in fantasy books based in mythology (Greek, Roman, Norse, Egyptian, etc.).
