Publisher's Summary

Five 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.

Overall great

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The author did a great job of creating well thought out world.

My problems, which keep me from giving a 5. ** may contain slight spoilers **
Corin - it is annoying how he can so scared and brave throughout the book. In addition, he wants to (has to grow stronger faster than anyone) progress but refuses to use his own mental powers. It's so frustrating.
Plot line - the are many different threads that the author will probably get to but they are weaved in and out and a lot aren't answered.
Characters - are all unique but don't have the greatest depth or growth
Pace - jumps around and gets slow at points.

It is OK!

The idea or premise of the story is good. The romance is forced and out of place. The main character is annoying, whiny, and a bit of a coward; not completely likeable. The story is slow. The majority of the book is explaining and building the world and some of the characters. I never really cared for any character, so it was hard to get engrossed in the story.
