At first, you think 'oh just another douchebag MC in another faceslapping novel', but things change real quick once you see him fleshed out more and his character develops - not to mention his humbling experience(s).
I believe the story's most powerful strength is its MC and his characterization, followed closely by both the world-building and the style of the writing, fresh and engaging.
Impatiently waiting for more. 👍
Edit: May or may not have cried after finding out about MC's backstory...
Love it, and I don't even like Harry Potter!👍
MC is relatable and feels like a real character. World is very fleshed out - author definitely has done his research and has taken Rowling's world a step further with his own world-building.
