Publisher's Summary

Lee Amaranth is a mystic, not a mage. In fact, he’s never cast a spell in his life. His day to day routine involves communing with unseen supernatural entities and using silver weapons to banish rampaging specters. With his sister missing, however, he has no choice but to go on a search that leads him to the locked gates of Primhaven University, a school forbidden to those untouched by arcane potential.

Luckily, if he plays his cards right, he might just have some help. A cute ghost from another century. A nerdy spellcasting prodigy. A beautiful teacher who sees right through his bullshit. It’s up to Lee to decide who to place his trust in as he formulates a plan to fake his way through classes and exams.

WARNING: This novel contains graphic sex scenes between the main character and numerous women/succubi/monster girls.

Dude gets too lucky

At first, I really enjoyed the book, along with it's premise. The issue is it quickly becomes apparent the mc has poor decision making and is getting lucky it hasn't caught up to him. He constantly lies about his abilities which is the only reason the plot continues. He also for some unknown reason has the full trust of his friends even after doing things that should have lost that trust, and is somehow angry and thinks people are crazy for responding in LOGICAL WAYS!!!

I found the story and MC frustrating.

The characters are great and the premise is great. The mc is kind of annoying and never really does anything exceptional. Honestly the only reason i kept this book is because of the FANTASTIC narration. Alex has the best voice for the male and female characters out of any narrator ive listened to. Including luke daniels, andrea parsnue, and nick pohdel. The second book is a bit better. If the third book doesnt have the mc actually able to DO something i think im going to drop the series.

Amazing narration; pretty good series

This is a basic novel, made more enjoyable by the narrator and fun dynamic between the MC and a ghost. The MC is more lucky than smart and doesn’t evolve much, but the dialog, characters and plot are solid enough throughout the series. I don’t love the way the betrayals and tragedies are handled, but that might be personal preference. I’m surprised Alex doesn’t have a lot more books. I hope she does more narration in the fantasy genre.

great story

arcane dropout is a great story. it is about elden, or Lee as he goes by for most of the book, on his quest to find out what happened to his sister. his only clew is the magical university his sister went to before he lost contact with her. elden is a mystic, which means he is able to see and interact with ghosts. he uses this power to pretend, together with a nice beautiful ghost girl, to be a mage and enters the university to see what he can find out about what happened to his sister. as the book goes on, Lee begins to actually like the university he goes to, and it slowly becomes more complicated than just finding his sister. the narrator does a great job on this one. every character has an unique voice, and she can also do a brittish accent well.

MUST GET!!

I’m not saying this is the best book I’ve read but by the end of it I was almost begging for just one more chapter. Or ten more.

Interesting

Very Interesting concept and MC. Will be looking forward to hearing the next books. It's too bad the boss was given away so easily at the end though. It seemed like a good mystery to hold on to a bit longer

I will be continuing the story!

I haven't read/listened to many books so my standards aren't amazing, but I enjoyed this. I found myself turning off Netflix just to keep listening to this. I will be getting all the other books in this series. The voice was a little weird for the male characters, but I can understand why, so I didn't mind. The female voices were amazing and added to the intimate parts. Thank you!
