Re: Novels with a magic system similar to Mother of Learning

If you're just looking for the magic system, then "The Villain Wants To Live" might be good.  It's an absurdly strange concept for a series once you realize what it's doing, but the magic system is probably as interesting to read about as Mother of Learning's was.  It's detailed, freeform, and logical.  

Try and ignore reading the tags ahead of time on novel updates.  This series turns all of them on it's head.  So while you might expect something from one tag, you are absolutely not getting anything even remotely similar to what you are thinking it'll be.  It turns things on it's head a lot.
