Summary

Ian Arthur had very little going for him. He was turning 20 and his life existed within the confines of the walls of his uncle’s antique shop. That is, until a box of junk came in and he found a bracelet. After he tried it on, it changed his life forever.

Penelope—the fiery, redhead, twin-tailed Fox girl, or Kitsune—was sent to get him. But his first night of learning about magic was definitely not normal. He damages his uncle’s shop, slays Darkbeasts, saves the beautiful Penelope (without knowing how he did it), and gets transported to a different world of learning.

When he gets to the Acadamia, he learns there are no other males there, just him. And the mostly female monster girl student body are now fighting over him. None of them realized that things are about to turn out differently. Ian now has magic, and it’s powerful.

This series contains the unabridged text, mayhem, monster girls, lots of tails, and magic the likes of which have not been seen in ages from a Magician.

A fun story

This is one of those stories that you just enjoy listening to. It's easy to get into if you know what I mean. It's just fun. The narrators do such wonderful job bringing it to life. I can't wait for the next installment.

Mixed feelings

Take away the narrator and do some touch up and the story would be amazing. However the absolute lack of any kind of build up for literally anything that happens is depressing, especially with the narrator being more than underwhelming in his delivery (would it kill him to give some emotion?) Major plot points just develop suddenly, without warning, without ..... well.... plot. There will be some spoilers from here on.

When Ian first has sex with Penelope, it happens without any tension being built up, coming on the back of a chapter where he was trying to assert that he isn't a trophy to be won. Like come on. 5 min ago you weren't a trophy, but the absolute most innocent teasing and the very first time your alone with the girl again you pounce, no foreplay either. Straight to pound town with what equates to penis goes in vagina as the whole scene. The next major wtf is suddenly he's the decendent of king Arthur and Merlin..... really? From there we move on to apparently he has an idedic memory when it comes to reading and studying, but only that. That one came up with absolutely 0 hinting or foreshadowing btw. This all happens within like 3 chapters.....

Great book and great narration!

I really enjoyed listening to the book. It was well written and I enjoyed the characters. The narrators brought the characters to life very well. I really enjoyed having both a male and female narrator. I'm looking forward to the next one!

No character development

didn't finish the book guy is a literal Mary sue like rey but a dude. He is strong, really smart, looks good mans has no flaws and i can already tell he isn't gonna evolve as a character like one thing you absolutely need in a book is a CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT and it feels like he's already at his absolute peak of what he can be and I'm only at chapter 3. so yeah if you wanna read a book with a stale piece of bread this is your book.

Story Felt Rushed

So the performance was good but the story felt really rushed. For instance it felt like they kept dropping one bombshell after another, with no regards to time and place. Like they where just itching to spill all the beans and end the book in one go. I get you have to progress your story but it felt like they just bulldozed right through the story and skimmed over some of the other parts. They kept doing time jumps, right after each major piece. They could have have highlighted more of their school life, in the classroom room or out shopping or something. Highlight more of the main characters interacting with the teacher and other students. Just felt super rushed to drop each significant bomb shell.

great start

I think this was a great start to a series . plenty of good characters. plenty of action without an hour long boss fight with an idiot mc. If authors make op characters and after an hour long battle of 11 sure deaths and 16 most excruciating pain ever they finally remeber a power they have. not this guy. if he wants you dead you have seconds left.
I am not sure of the future direction. but this story did not lack in anything. great listen. the narrators are well known and excellent. Hazel sounds like an angel. christian pulls off powerful op mcs without sounding arogant or condescending. thanks. waiting for volumn 2

Main character is limiting himself.

The key component of this book makes me annoyed because of the main character limiting himself on how high his power can get. Mainly because of someone who isn't around anymore.

A Lot of Inconsistencies

From having an ability one sec to not later, and telling the and explaining the same thing multiple times. This story sounds good, but sends like alterations were made mid story without correcting earlier statements.
