Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess. He never returned. Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

Nick Podehl does a wonderful job as always. As a first book to a series I enjoyed it. Did not have a problem getting through it. It fall into some normal fantasy tropes but I have never seen a book that does not.

Looking forward to listening to the second book in the series.
