“When a traveler cannot find a path, sometimes he must make his own.”
I have seen this series mentioned a lot as one of the best indie series out there. I always thought it was a long historical fiction series and I was not ready for that kind of obligation. Then my friend David got into the series and he liked it so much and he mentioned it has a great magic system and it turns out that it is a fantasy series after all and that’s when I knew I had to give it a chance and I am glad I did.
I had strong Naruto vibes from this series and then noticed that my friend Petrik mentioned that in his review, and since I am not as good as expressing my thoughts as him, I am linking his review here.
I think I now understand the success the series has because it is full of good elements. It has very simple but captivating writing, the books are short so it is a very good break from all the huge fantasy tomes, the characters are excellently written and the plot twist in this one was something I did not see which was a huge plus for me.
“The son of a cripple might be a cripple, but the son of tigers won’t be a dog.”
The story also takes place in a fantasy school (kind of) and that is one of my favorite settings which made this even more enjoyable. I think if I am going to criticize something then it is how fast sometimes it can be and some events needed more time to absorb.
Summary: I am keeping this a short review because I think it is good to go into the series knowing as little as possible. I enjoyed everything about this series and I am definitely reading the whole series now.
