Publisher's Summary

In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one.
He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything.
Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game.
Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities.
With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job.
His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a super villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state.
Surprisingly, not a whole lot changed. Politicians were still corrupt. Banks still held onto your money. And criminals still committed crime.
Though the black market has become more readily available.
And in that not so black market, Felix discovers he has a way to make his power useful after all, and grasps a hold of his chance with both hands.
Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/partial harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

Lot better than I thought it would be

I was looking at the reviews for this and really didn't think I would like it. Yeah it had a decent rateing but everyone was saying it was a bunch of wish fufillment harem sillyness. I thought I had run into some big new YA novel popular with younger folks or possibly that someone had paid for some good reviews. But I was in a hurry to get something before I had to hit the road and figured why not.

Really glad I did. It is a bunch of wish fufillment harem sillyness but is also well written. The characters are fun and grow well with the story. Paceing is spot on. I expected a lot of cringeworthy writing that never materierized.

it's not perfect. the points stuff is annoying and probably works better in the written form. And there are some issues with nonsensical plot points and characters occasionally behaving out of character. But overall it was a very pleasant surprise.

Awesome listen!

Wonderful start to a potentially amazing series! The only part of this I disliked was the frequency of one aspect. The point counting. Needed in some spots but, honestly a couple times could have just been summed up with total/spent/remaining and it would have been fine.

Other than that I loved it! 12 hour book that I finished in less than 24 hours. I unfortunately had to stop listening to sleep.

Typically I dislike stories with harem aspect because they come off cheesey, creepy or otherwise lecherous. Arand managed to pull it off tastefully and it didn't bother me at all.

Have already suggested this book to several friends that are comic book fans, and will do so again.
