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.

Book has interesting concepts but main character is needlessly ignorant of many seemingly well known concepts in the world. For a person who was privately trained to be a magical warrior he seems to have missed a large portion of the magical part. Was hard to keep listening and finally dropped it when the author randomly added a love path with an interesting character out of no where for seemingly no reason or purpose.

I read a lot of manga/Manhua (don’t judge me). And this has a strong theme from some of my favorite stories. So excited to see a story like this on audible to give one of my favorite plot types a refreshing twist.

The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. Becoming a permanent addition to a game world, it doesn't take long to learn that people with his abilities are actively hunted. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves.

Love the concept, the entry into the game is a little redundant but still one of my favorites with a no way out situation. Couldn’t stop listening and finished in 2 days. Can’t wait for release of book 2! Already pre ordered it

I love Tim’s narrations, he does a great job with his spectrum or voices and accents. The book itself is hard to put down. I enjoyed the revelations that came around this book and the answers found.

I really was excited for this book. It seemed to have an interesting plot and the 3 for 1 purchase was awesome. However I should have read the reviews. This is my first returned item after 2 years constant listening. I'll probably get it on kindle if I can find the time to read. Really wish the narrator was better.
