Magic is returning.

That is a simple fact. As the small newly reborn town of Barthel is whisked into the sky by the return of the powerful supernatural force, beings lost to time immemorial are returning. An entire mountain lifted into the air, surrounded by mysterious pillars, the only saving grace; three portals appeared around the town keeping travel possible.

Jamie, apprentice scavenger at an antique shop has let their life become mundane, enjoyable in the nature-filled monotony of the small town. But when a small thread of mana pulls itself out of the ether and begins granting wishes, even their own life will be thrown into chaos.

Contains: Town growth. Dungeon-core esq dungeon building. Adventurers. and mild litrpg elements.

I'm not good at this so I will keep it short. 

This story has just started and has achieved a good balance between world building and excessive info dumps. It has an interesting concept and some characters who are really cute. 

There's a flying mountain and living toys.

This story really pulled my attention, it's incredibly unique. Without spoiling too much it comes down to the fact that we get to see so many perspectives about how the world has changed/is changing. There are both sides of my favorite coin here too, it has just enough OP influence from will (a very interesting take on a typical cliche character) while being balanced out by the current slightly underpowered jamie. My only criticism is I don't feel like we have spent too much time with Jamie yet, while most of the characters feel alive and vibrant Jamie is a little bit flat. However I am optimistic that this will change as it gets further into the story.

thanks for writing this story!

Great story, I have not been able to find any serious grammar or spelling mistakes (with this I mean that the grammar and spelling are great). 

So far the author has shown to be very competent. They have succeeded in adding magic to the mundane world. The world itself is rich (with this I mean that there are good descriptions of the world) and the characters are fun and engaging.

I would recommend this book if you like the following things:

  1. Fantasy 
  2. Dungen building
  3. Town building
  4. Worldbuilding

What the title says. Prose is a bit clunky and has some mixed-up tenses and such, but the setting is hypothetically interesting enough - a world rediscovering magic - but then you follow all sorts of characters with not enough coherence. More slice-of-life-ish than anything else, but still jumping around between PoVs too much for me.

If you don't mind that, it's probably okay...ish.

I don't really care for LitRPGs or town building or whatnot, but this one is set in the Appalachian Mountain region of the United States (AKA my motherland), and stars a nonbinary protagonist! And it's filled with cute characters and humor! Surprised this one isn't as big of a hit yet because it hits all the marks of being actually pretty neat.
