Is burned daughter Paul must enter the dangerous world of Flex dealers to heal her Except he’s never done this before – and the punishment for brewing Flex is army conscription and a total brain wipe File Under Urban Fantasy Magic Pill | Firestarter | Bureaucramancy | The Flex the Flux. Loved the idea wolfed down the first few chapters at a sitting started to feel the drag in the middle DNF at 83% because I don't feel any urge to know how it ends which ain't good Plot's gone completely static A good dev edit could have fixed this but TBH it also suffers from Ready Player One syndrome ie if you aren't completely immersed in the videogames one character uses for her magic you just sit there looking blankly at pages of incomprehensibility If you like videogames a lot it may be brilliant and hilarious of course Pity the start was great

Dear FerrettDon't take the rating personally It's not you it's me Really there's a lot to like in your book; a parallel world with 'mancers magic that comes out of passion distilled magic as part of the drug tradeWait not that last bit Because while it makes absolute sense I just don't I don't do sloppy drug trade setting and prefer to avoid the realistic setting in anything but Serious Movies Maybe its because the memory of the last kid I took care of whose 'buddies' dropped him off not breathing and a lovely shade of light blue at the ER The night was capped off by calling Security when he was ripping out the IV ready to walk out the door and his helpless frustrated mom who walked out before he did I don't like playing in that world during my free time because I live in it at work It is heartbreaking and maddening there are too many assholes a lot of sad stories a truckload of lies both unintentional and purposeful and no happy endings I suppose you might have reached that message somewhere in Flex perhaps with the concept of Flux coming back to bite the magician in the butt but what I mostly got was the idea that Paul would deal with the devil to achieve his goal and if he could make drugs magic without cost he would The extreme characterization of a drug dealer who chains his source to a radiator didn't really help your causeLet's talk characters particularly Paul underdog hero His endless guilt trips particularly the self flagellation about his daughter Aliyah and his directionless wandering in his own life did not build a character I cared about Again I'm willing to take blame here I don't have children and don't understand the endless guilt trip Paul has about saving his kid's life and his obsession about getting her plastic surgery Maybe because his character doesn't have any balance; there's the ex relationship the daughter issues the work issues His history comes in context of an unhappy divorce and previously unhappy job Whatever it is I have a hard time identifying with him or even rooting for him as I watched him run on his mental gerbil wheel The best parts were the times that Paul delved into his magic and his joy in creating order from chaos was able to shine For the rest well congratulations on being able to bring a whiny self centered six year old to life I know I know; they all are Your villain not so much If we didn't have you switching to the villain's perspective I don't think I'd know much at allAlthough if we're being honest I'd have to say you should share a tad bit of the blame The storytelling was choppy I appreciate an experimental narrative structure in the hands of a practitioner but chapter installments drew attention to the lack of transitions instead of facilitating them Sometimes the chapter ended and picked up one second later Sometimes it ended and the next began in the future then flashed back to the middle It's not a bad idea but you need a story and style that can use the sophistication of that techniue I suppose the underdog concealed power plot is based on the superhero tradition but could you have classed it up a bit Apparently Paul is able to identify the villain through magical nausea but lines like focusing on her magic was like pushing his head deeper into a barf bag isn't going to win you much loveThe ending pulled it together in a decent way and your writing finally had a chance to shine I wish you luck with your series I really do but I have doubts I'll continue It's got the underdog double life superhero thing going for it so I'm sure you'll find an audience I think it'll especially appeal to fans of Wendig's Miriam Black series Which I also disliked so you're in fabulous companyReallyTwo and a half snorts stars
