Publisher's Summary

The Hollow is dying.

Beset by nightmarish creatures from the caverns below, Jason’s tribe is slowly being whittled away. Only a brave few still stand against the darkness.

Jason dreams of joining the glorious Shadowfront and battling the enemy known only as the Void. But, as a lowly Pastfinder, he is denied that path and forced to serve as little more than a glorified scavenger.

It is only when he chances upon the ruins of a long dead civilization that his fortunes change. Jason discovers a forgotten form of cultivation, one fueled by the ghosts of centuries-lost history and powerful, forbidden knowledge.

For the first time in his life, Jason has the strength to join the fight against the shadows.

But, if his fellow tribesmen learn of his new power's cursed origins, the Void will be the least of his concerns....

Inspired by the worlds of Xianxia and Wuxia, Julian Gyll brings a fresh, western fantasy take on the burgeoning cultivation genre.

Good one

Okay so it starts really slow and is somewhat repetitive with the explanations given to introduce the world but pick8 up nicely after jason goes into the void but i have to say that the plot twist was not a surprise at all, saw it coming when their blind faith was first mentioned but in the end it was an entertaining story

Frustrating but good.

The story is unfortunately predictable. That's not saying it's bad. If you're look for something new, then this isn't it. Retreading religion and followers zealot belief in said religion.

A hamfisted but enjoyable journey

The Story itself:
Problems- the story is in a word cookie cutter if you've read a couple progression fantasy before this will be nothing new to you, the plot follows a fairly predictable structure and the twists were quite obvious, the characters were okay nothing special but they weren't insufferable which all to common in this genera.
Positives- I really like the flexibility of the magic system and integration of history and collective memory into it. The overall pace is fast and rarely drags.
Neutrals-this book wears it's ideals on its sleeve and is not shy about showing them to you, I personally enjoyed this but it may not be for everyone
Performance- Travis dose a great job making the book feel alive, no notes
Overall and above average package worth a credit if you enjoy series like cradle or arcane ascention
