"For Genre Save Readers"

PAct breaks the format in a lot of ways. The magic system is very unique, the main character is a grey hero, may be an antihero, and the sense that he has any control over what is happening in the series is minimal.

It's a constant cascade of action, frantic pacing, skin of the teeth escapes, and then diving immediately into the next issue caused by whatever hair-brained bad idea saved you from failure at the last juncture.

A non-human main character becomes a thing and I adore how well and reasonable that character's motivations end up being written.

If you have read enough to want something fresh and to love a subversion then this is perfect for you.

The intense pace, highly conceptual and fluid magic system, intense cascade of consequences, and general complexity of the story may be rough for new readers.

I imagine people who enjoyed the Dresden Files or Twenty Palaces Series would like this
