About A Certain Magical Index Novel Volume 1

A Certain Magical Index Novel Volume 1 is written by Kazuma Kamachi with illustrations by Kiyotaka Haimura.

In Academy City, magic and science coexist in an unwavering power struggle. Toma Kamijo, an academically-challenged student in Academy City, wields the power of the Imagine Breaker in his right hand, which allows him to completely negate all supernatural powers - as well as his own luck.

When he happens upon a mysterious nun named Index, whose mind has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum - 103,000 ancient texts banned by the Church - Toma's luck is about to be pushed to its limits when he finds himself in the middle of a war he never expected!

A Fascinating Blend of Science and Magic


This was the first light novel I ever read, the old fan translations being found on a particular site years ago. While this licensing meant an end to the free reading of a series I came to love, it does feel nice to be able to finally support this work.
The novels follow the premise of a conflict between the sides of advanced super-science with psychics (ESPers) who can manipulate the fabric of the universe and actual magic itself, controlled by groups part of the world's major and minor religions. In the middle trying to maintain balance and a war that could tear apart the world is Kamijou Touma, a regular person from the science side, whose only advantage is that his right hand can negate any supernatural effect, whether is be the power of the ESPers or the mages.

an amazing introduction to a fascinating world


being the first real light novel I've both fully read and owned i can really say its amazing. it blends the world of science and magic very well with characters that are very memorable if your looking for a series that's both long and feels alive i would recommend giving this work a try or even checking out the anime adaption it lacks what the books give but it fallows to a great degree to the story. happy reading guys!
