Description

Corin Cadence finally has a firm reason to believe his brother, Tristan, is still alive. Unfortunately, finding more information isn’t going to be easy. Tristan appears to be entangled with a clandestine organization that calls themselves Whispers. And Corin’s last brush with the Whispers didn’t exactly end well.

As much as he wants to follow that lead, Corin has more pressing problems to deal with. Sera is still suffering from a mysterious malady that has stolen her voice and her magic. Corin knows that a portion of that is his fault, and he’s determined to fix it. His mother is still off in another country, and there are growing odds that she’s involved with a conspiracy to overthrow the visages.

Corin has also been branded with a new magical mark on his right hand - one that even veteran climbers don’t seem to recognize. He’s going to need to figure out how it works, otherwise it could be more of a vulnerability than an asset.

Corin still hasn’t finished his first year at Lorian Heights. If he fails his final exams, he’ll be sent off to the military and lose his chance to investigate his brother’s fate. And finally, there’s the issue of enemies. He might have made a few of them.

The biggest problem? He’s not sure if Jin, once one of his closest companions, is one of them.

Why did you have to go that direction?

I understand the way of the world these days, but i really wish the author didn't push this Social justice warrior BS into his book. I didn't want a lesson in pronouns, i wanted a fantasy story... it felt forced and like an after thought, it left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Nick Podehl did amazing as usual, even if the characters were whiny and a bit over the top, he delivered them with masterful skill.

Great Sequel! Nick is the best.

Great book, and of course Nick Podehl delivers another amazing performance! Solid sequel, although if the epilogue is true I'm not sure I'd be as interested in a side story rather than the next entry...

Interesting Dungeon Delving/university fun.

I love the world, the story and Nick's performance. The only failing in my eyes is that it's another awkward white guy as the protagonist, which while it's the demographic you're going for makes it hard for me to try to get some friends to move past it when I recommend it. Loved the lbgtq friendliness built into the society.

great story

loved the story and characters. the performance of the narrator was epic. my only issues were with a few things corinne does that's out of character especially regarding his father's scenes.

well performed, good story

Wish there was more, climatic battle not as epic as last one. Feels like a foundation or bridging book to the overall story.

Loved it!

This might be the only book I like even better in audio than the original print version! I didn’t have enough will power to pause it very often. As always, I loved the writing and the twists and turns, and especially the sass. Definitely READ IT!

The author tries awfully hard to be hip and modern

The author likes to talk about using gender-neutral pronouns, and mixes in our cultural biases without any explanation of how it fits into the fantasy society. It's often distracting and haphazard at best. Sarah seems more likable than our main protagonist. Other than that the story is good for the most part. Neat ideas and directions are taken that makes the story still enjoyable. I just wish our author introduced the society a little better, it just takes away from the story when you add in random modern day political beliefs into a fantasy story without even doing it smoothly. I read these kinda of books to get away from all the political stuff on TV today. Not be reminded of it again in a random way that doesn't even fit with a medievalish society.

Fills a void.

I was super excited for the second book in the series with the ramp up of the previous. I just couldn't get into this one the same way. There was interesting magic, a few exciting scenes, but it was also very fluffy and dragged in many parts. Corin can get very annoying, and it starts to grate on you. I'm not saying to skip it, but don't expect the same excitement as the first book.

Love this series

When I first read Sufficiently Advanced Magic, I was hooked. I could not wait for this book to come out. After finishing this book, I know that this is one of my favorite book series. Nick Podehl is an amazing narrator and I cannot wait for more books in this series. I will definitely tell everyone about this series. I highly recommend reading it.

Finally the 2nd installment, & it didnt dissapoint

I had been waiting for this book since i had stumbled across the first one and then got pissed when i found out the 2nd book was not out yet. The e-book came out first but I couldn't get into but I bought the audio book because i just knew that this is one of those books that is just better listened to rather than read, kuddos to the narrator for that btw. So check this book out bit if you havent listened to Suffeceintly Advanced Magic then do so then follow up with this one. Myself personally am already waiting on the next book.
