Publisher's Summary

Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess.

He never returned.

Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

If he can survive the trials, Corin will earn an attunement, but that won't be sufficient to survive the dangers on the upper levels. For that he's going to need training, allies, and a lot of ingenuity.

The journey won't be easy, but Corin won't stop until he gets his brother back.

Yeah its a good story. Give it a go

The story is good, opens a world full of possibilities, basically if you have been half am imagination you can work out how powerful a perceived weakness can be.

Good characters, good amount of action and story, good amount of twists, some you may see coming, others you wont.

Give it a shot.

Engaging even if a little derivative

I enjoyed this despite myself. The voice acting is superb though. Some good twists and turns and interesting magic system although a little deus ex in some places. Fun book and will listen to the next for sure.
