Publisher's Summary

God is dead. Killer at large.

In a world filled with powerful witches and wizards, Professor Marcus Orren is about as magical as your average brick, leading to a life of rampant cynicism, coupled with mild-to-moderate alcohol abuse.

While his contemporaries are content in their sorcerous ways, Marcus dares to ask the important questions in life, such as: “How can a pyromancer summon fire without fuel and a spark?” or, “What, exactly, is so special about a simple chalk circle that people assume it will ever turn iron into gold?”

His latest theory, an academic rebuttal of a God named Tomas, stands so air-tight that the Universe itself is forced to agree, promptly erasing the actual Tomas straight from existence. Unfortunately for Marcus, there are hundreds of Gods roaming the heavens above, and nearly all are the type to hold a grudge.

Ya know what I mean?

Great story! Great narrator! My only complaint is that there wasn’t another 5 hrs of the book.

Pretty Good, feels like I'm missing something

I like it, the narrator did a pretty good job especially with the male characters I thought. I think the recording is out of order because it feels like there a jump and then the missing chapter feels like it comes back at a very odd point. I would recommend. also the ending confuses me some.

Weak derivative story, annoying narrator.

Interesting idea ruined by nonsensical narration

I really wanted to like this book. It's premise seems genuinely fun and interesting. All credit to the author, if I was reading this I think I would have really enjoyed it. However, the narrator does a huge disservice to the story and its characters. He seems to be reading the whole thing ironically and over emphasising words in sections where it is wildly distracting. I would recommend reading the book if you are intrigued by the premise but skip the audiobook version.
