Isekai Character Backstory!!!!


Perhapse it is a sign of the novel market when I get excited about a protagonist that the story eludes to having a very interesting backstory but this became a page turner for me because I wanted to know more about the main character and what he had been through in life. I bought this series on a bundle whim and read a book a day until I was out. The author has done a wide breath of research on historical magical systems to make a little tangential learning fun. It falls a little short due to a few common Japanese Light Novel pitfalls I will call "light novel protagonist syndrome"... but I would put this on my top ten most anticipated new novel releases for 2019.
