Summary

A mage's fate is worse than death....

Lucian dreams of a new life outside the cesspool of Earth. Unfortunately, his wish comes true when the government identifies him as a mage.

No one knows why the mages are being born. No one knows why their powers lead to madness and death in a terrifying disease known as "the fraying". The only solution is to quarantine the mages in academies.

Lucian is exiled from Earth and must attend the Volsung Academy. He is to become a Talent, a mage dedicated to developing his powers in service to the League of Worlds.

But during the long voyage, he meets a mysterious sorceress. She prophesies Lucian is marked by the Manifold, the reality that is the source of all magic. It is a destiny that requires Lucian to master magical abilities he never imagined he possessed.

He faces a terrible choice - to continue down the path fate has prescribed him. Or, to try and outrun destiny...

Not very interesting

The book is very slow. the MC is always talking about taking care of himself and he doesn't need anyone. But he is always choosing the path that someone else makes for him. I understand he is going through growth in the story ark, but it gets tiring when they entire book is about this and you really don't feel like he is getting anywhere.

consistently inconsistent

it's probably supposed to be the main flaw of the main character which he'll work on improving over the series, but the large swings in logic and reaction to situations quite annoyed me over time. like the premise and world building, but the main characters were disappointing.
