Description

Reidon Ward will become a god.

He doesn't know it yet, of course. Reidon was born weak, sickly, and small. Afflicted with a painful disease and abandoned by his parents because of it, he has had to fight tooth and nail for every minor advantage life has allowed him.

However, his perseverance has not gone unnoticed, and when the most powerful artificial intelligence in human history takes an interest in him, things began to change quickly. Granted a CAD - a Combat Assistance Device - with awful specs but an infinite potential for growth, Reidon finds himself at the bottom of his class at the Galens Institute, one of the top military academies in the Collective. Along with his best friend, Viviana Arada, Reidon will have to start his long climb through the school rankings and on to the combat tournament circuits that have become humanity's greatest source of excitement and entertainment.

So begins the rise of a god. So begins the ascent of the Stormweaver.

Fun progressive fiction.

This book had some struggles with dialogue and plot. The conversations were often too quippy or full of exposition, and though I expect some of that in every sci-fi or fantasy novel, there were a couple a moments that were too much. Some of it was done pretty well - the nerd trope that two of the main characters have going on gives a reason to be well-versed and informative for the reader and can mask a lot of exposition dumps, but at some points it becomes a crutch. I hope the sequel will lighten up on this.
The plot was predictable at all stages, but I didn't pick this up to be wowed by spectacular plot twists - I picked it up because Space Cyborg Ninja Fights and I got that, damn it. It was a fun romp through campus life, and watching Rei get stronger and try to outhink problems was great popcorn lit. The book does leave us with some dangling plot threads I expect to be woven into a more cohesive pattern when book 2 arrives, whenever that will be.
Luke Daniels did a great job of keeping the voices distinct and engaging, and I think his performance was top-notch.
All in all, if you want something low stakes but fun, you could do worse than Iron Prince. I enjoyed it enough that I'll pick up book 2 when it releases.

Pretty good start

Great start to the series, ill definitely be picking up the next book.

HOWEVER. The story itself is not really original. Your typical started from the bottom school progression story, staring the best friend, the school bully, the forbidden love interest, the teacher, the angry teacher, the rival...yeah you get the picture. The characters themselves arent particularly interesting. I understand their motivations but i didnt find that any of them (including the main) stand out to me.
The narrator is a bit too BREATHY and dramatic at times, it can make some scenes a bit silly and uncomfortable.
The fights can be drawn out and certain parts can be over detailed, several times i found myself spacing out DURING fight scenes. Yikes.
Its better than *Sufficiently Advanced Magic* but not as good as *Cradle*

Still great.

Just read

Story is told smoothly full of action, twists, and yuks making you hesitant to pause or fall asleep. And the other comments seem to agree! My only complaint is there isn’t more to the series.

Fun progression sci-fi with likeable characters

While I wouldn't say that this novel is incredibly unique in a lot of ways, it does a lot of things right. Good pacing, an exciting progression system, a likeable cast of characters, and fun interaction between them.
This, coupled with an incredible performance from Luke Daniels, kept me engaged the entire time. Finished the whole thing in like 4 days.

There are only two main criticisms of the story I can think of:
1. the characters seemed a bit to glued to each other, would've been interesting to see some more individual development.
2. the dialog at times felt a bit juvenile and cringeworthy? Maybe a bit overdramatic. Though to be fair I would prefer this over the norm in a lot of modern fantasy/sci-fi dialog, which is just incredibly dead and uninteresting. Also the characters are basically kids, so it somewhat makes sense.

Overall, one of my favorite things I've read/listened to this year, can't wait for the next book!

wow

incredible read if you like progressive fantasy. easily the best I've heard in the genre.

very minor annoyances:
* cutting off the swearing midway through
* romance in the book is more akin to 12 year olds rather than 18
* the author definitely goes very red when embarrassed as that's pretty much all anyone does in this book.

highly recommend. may read again.

Great fun book

Great first book. If you like the idea of a Sci Fi, Harry Potter/Enders game coming of age book you will enjoy this book. The narrator is able to have enough different character voices to keep the listener involved and the "LIT" format is not so over done to make the book a endless narration of Statistics. I look forward to the upcoming Stormweaver series books. I think the success of this book will depend on how fast the author is able to get the other books in the series out.

Best book I've heard all year!!

I could not recommend this more if I tried. My only gripe is that I read it when it came out and now I have to wait until winter for book 2.

I love the book, but it's too long

The world building, "magic system" and character development are all really well done. Cannot be denied.

The first time I read this book, I could not put it down. I was completely enthralled. I was hoping I would enjoy it just as much 2nd time around in audio form, but I found myself not having patience to sit through it all.

What comes across in the 2nd read, or listen in this case ...is that there are a lot of sections that you can skip through without really missing anything important storywise.

So I guess, my only complaint is that the book can be long-winded at times ...and even that isn't as big an issue on the 1st read/listen. On 2nd listen tho, and I recognize that this is nitpicking because I wanted the book to be a timeless classic that I could go back and enjoy over and over again, I feel like it's too long. Details are over-explained, and honestly there's a lot of fluff in there.
I honestly believe that the book would be better if it were pared down.

That said, I would still highly recommend this book to anyone into progression fantasy. It's a super creative interpretation of the genre, and I am very much looking forward to book 2.

Fantastic story, killer narration

I read this in paper copy. Stayed up all night to finish it, it was that good. 6 months later, I listened to the audiobook. Even though I knew what was going to happen, I still couldn't stop listening.

All hype & fluff

Bought audio book based on review... my mistake. No substance... repetative...

Set in the far future, on a military school campus that feels like an entitled highschool campus. The students learn to use alien tech mech suits to fight MMA style... very repetitive

A GREAT book with unique take on sci-fi fantasy.

Between O'Connor, Chmilienko, and Daniels. This book has the best making I've read in a while. 3 great artists. One very great book that is a little outside the norm.
The gamelit aspects are a different spectrum from the normal leveling.
The fantasy tech suits are a nice highlight for the story.
And lastly the story itself has a good bit of uniqueness that doesn't deprive the story of any action drama or mystery.
I highly recommend this to anyone who likes sci-fi fantasy, but don't expect much magic in the normal sense though. I feel that the magic like portions of the story will ramp up more in the second book.

Not very interesting.

Imagine "Super Powereds" with no depth and no interesting characters. Just listen to Super Powereds instead.

Speechless

This is what I wake up to hear. This book is awesome and makes me feel it deserved full price over a credit. Definitely one of the best credits ever spent. Can't wait for book 2.
