#SPFBO Finalists: My fourth book


Below is a round up of the ten finalists that have been put forward in this year’s SPFBO (Self Published Fantasy Blog Off).  A link with more information about the competition can be found here.


I’ve now randomly chosen my fourth book for the SPFBO.  The books I’ve read so far are:  The War of Undoing by Alex Perry, Chaos Trims my Beard by Brett Herman and Pilgrimage to Skara by Jonathan S Pembroke.  The fourth book that I’m about to embark on is Sufficiently Advanced Magic by Andrew Rowe. This book was the finalist put forward by Bookworm Blues.

A little bit more about the book:

Sufficiently Advanced Magic (Arcane Ascension #1) by Andrew Rowe

sufficiently advanced.jpgFive years ago, Corin Cadence’s brother entered the Serpent Spire — a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire’s trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire’s goddess.

He never returned.

Now, it’s Corin’s turn. He’s headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

If he can survive the trials, Corin will earn an attunement, but that won’t be sufficient to survive the dangers on the upper levels. For that, he’s going to need training, allies, and a lot of ingenuity.

The journey won’t be easy, but Corin won’t stop until he gets his brother back.

    It sounds intriguing, though kind of a variation of the other one you just reviewed. I hope it delivers and you like it very much. 🙂

    The premise sounds quite engaging: I love stories about “shifting rooms, traps and monsters”! 🙂
    Looking forward to your review!
