Publisher's Summary

For a boy coming of age and discovering a magical self-reliance and new powers for every occasion, the future is in the cards, in this fantasy adventure.

Arthur lives with his father, a fallen but proud former noble, in Border Village #49, along with the other good folks condemned to toil in service to the Baron. But Arthur has an edge: a stolen heart card that secretly fell into his possession, thanks to a dragon. It’s a priceless source of power for the Baron and the tyrant will kill to get it back. Invaluable, too, to a young man of spellcasting ambitions.

So, at the behest of his father—and to save his own hide—Arthur flees and joins a trader caravan on the kingdom’s backroads. Mile by dusty mile, he gains new skills and learns more about his increasing capabilities. But when he meets Horatio, his sharp-tongued new best friend and a spell card collector himself, Arthur discovers the greater powers to come by building on the Legendary card hidden close to his heart.

One step ahead of the Baron’s hunters, Arthur and Horatio forge on under a sky full of guardian dragons—from the adorably loopy to the mystically wise—and their unflappable riders. Amidst danger, rescue, and friendships with both humans and those creatures of the more leathery variety, Arthur awakens to a newfound confidence . . . and the extraordinary things that can arise from the simplest magics.

The first volume of the hit progression fantasy series, featuring a unique card-based magic system, now available for the first time!

Critic Reviews

“A fantastic work that is fast establishing Honour Rae as one of the big names of LitRPG. The characters, plot, and world-building are incredibly compelling, and like many readers, my only issue was devouring it and then having to wait for more.”—Travis Deverell aka Shirtaloon, bestselling author of He Who Fights with Monsters

Awesome

This is easily up in my top gamelit series of all time. It's very well written, the world building is fantastic and most importantly, the story is fun.

A kid from the sticks happens upon an ultra powerful card and keeps it. Slotting it into his body gives him the ability to 'gamify' learning new skills, which could either make him very powerful, or a target.

I did have occasional issues with moral choices the main character made not being the ones that I would have made, but it didn't affect my enjoyment of this book. Do yourself a favour and read this, you won't regret it.

I'm begging for more

I have 14 days until book 2 comes out, that short amount of time feels like ages cannot wait for book 2. 100% recommend.
