This one is a really promising urban fantasy. Magic system is original, characters are 3 dimensional. Consequences of using magic in our world aren't ignored, which is my pet peeve with most urban fantasies. Potential mysteries are foreshadowed. I'm hooked. Hopefully the author will stick with this book for a while.

On a more serious note, the main charactar seems to act appropriately for his age. I do like the fact that the MC is not a savant that can solve all his problems without effort. The MC genuinely makes mistakes, but he doesn't come off as an idiot. The main villain is an interesting take on someone with delusion of grandeur, but it is hard to see if he will get much development moving on in the story. The situations so far have provided just the right amount of tension and originality to keep me wanting more chapters. I look forward to seeing where this story goes.

an urban fantasy that isnt complete hot garbage

Reviewed at: Chapter 19: Pants on Fire

Much like the authors other works. This story stands up to the standards of his other work. The story is refreshing compared to the slob that i usually see in urban fantasy

Soul magic and the ways that authors depict the magic systems for souls. Has always been a "you can barely do anything with it" or a "you can do unspeakable things to the core essense of another persona and your self" Rarely do you find a story that reachs a middle ground that isnt "Only the mc can use it, cus macguffin". This story still has that exclusivity for the mc to feel special, but its presented in a way that still challenge him, Resulting in logical amount of conflict for the story to run on

tl;dr Story good - semi casual read - Creative magic system

Been reading this story on the patreon, it lives up to the expectations set by his other works. Interesting premise, creative use of powers and interesting plot with good pacing.No system stuff in this one but you can still watch the MC wrestle with what is in front of him

Quality of his works is continuing to go up as well.

Not Macro's Finest work, but good enough.

Reviewed at: Chapter 21: Slumming It

The story reads as a fairly standard urban fantasy. It's plotted like any other book in the genre, which is a dissapointment as, so far, it's lacking Macro's signature "clever use of magic" themes pervasive in all his other stories.

Also I think I'm getting too old to read ninteen year old main characters, I prefer characters with their brains closer to their heads than their balls. Jeb was a nice change of pace in that regard. I'm sure any publisher would like this book, and it'd do decently well in the genre, but it doesn't feel like a Macro book, which is the only reason I started reading because I don't like Urban Fantasy. At least it doesn't fall into any of the obvious pitfalls or cliches most of the others in the genre do, so 4/5.
