A magical school. A talented boy. Things should've gone perfectly, a talented magus should've been created within the walls of this school. Yet it is now, now that he is here that all these horribly dangerous events transpire.

Traitors of the continent are hidden within the school. Mage supremacists are making their move. Schools will fall and cities collapse when the events begin unfolding.

So what will become of this boy, wanted by both groups? Will he perish under their manipulative hands or will he rise and bring magic society to a new high?

The setting bears surface level resemblence to Harry Potter, however the story progression and character morals have the feeling of a cultivation novel. The magic system seems, at least on the surface level, to be quite strict and complex spells and mechanics are built on top of more fundemental and simpler rules and mechanisms. 

There seems to be some plots being set up, so there is hope for story progression beyond just "MC got stronger again".

A lot of the power progression seems to involve mastery rather than just sitting in a cave for a couple thousand years. This also allows more room for conflict to be resolved in various ways, since the result isn't preset due to 100x power differences. Compared to many similar novels on RR this is unfortunately a significant improvement!

Nothing here is ground breaking, but it is a fun read.

Story wise I like the concept for the magic system; it's well thought out and strikes the right balance of detailed and open ended. I also appreciated how the MC was given an advantage without it being obnoxious, his perk is baisically just being super talented.

Character wise the MC is not the most interesting character. But it's still early and I feel that, since he has memories of his past life and the his new life has magic, the reality of this being his life and not some character he is playing has not yet set in. So far we haven't gotten a ton of background on other characters, but so far it seems like there is a diverse set of backgrounds and motivations to find out more about in the future. 

I haven't noticed any egregious issues with grammar, though I have noticed some typos. 

Style wise the author favors direct language and description over dialogue, though part that omay be because the MC is a bit of a loner.

Overall book knows what it is and does it well, and I would recommend it to others.

Something familiar, something new.

Reviewed at: Chapter 7: Attaining Magic!

If you like isekai, you'll be right at home - the story knows what it is, and plays to that strength pretty nicely with a thorough introduction of its magic systems and setting. Though it seems similar to a certain other book series about a secret society of wizards, it very quickly becomes obvious that the similarities are skin-deep.

I haven't yet read the entirety of the story as it is now, but it's been a pretty comfy ride so far. The MC does begin with some perks, but the usual pitfall of an OP protag is handily averted - the MC's perks don't really give him advantages any bigger than the average player character has over NPCs.

There's a whole lot of setup happening as is to be expected, and I expect that it will unfold into a sprawling tapestry of a hundred plotlines soon enough.
