Humanity on the run. Desperate base building. Dark deeds done during daylight.
Joe has started to draw attention to himself and his abilities. While some of the attention is good and allows for personal growth, most of it is from various organizations that feel threatened by the sudden upswing of power that Joe’s guild—The Wanderers—are attaining.
As the threat to earth begins to reach its peak, all of humanity has a choice: flee to Eternium, or stay for an uncertain future. Some stay, some go, some don’t make the choice quickly enough. In Ardania, the human Kingdom is seeing an unprecedented influx of people. Supply and demand is an issue no matter where you go, as a civilization of a few million can’t prepare to accept an eighth of earth’s inhabitants at once.
Joe sets out to solve problems where he can, but he can’t be there for everyone… especially when a group of smiling enforcers are working to bring him down.

Full disclosure: I received an advanced copy for review, I purchased a copy when it became available.
An enjoyable story from start to finish with many small lines and puns that made me chuckle. A few small things: Early parts of the story felt a little disconnected and some real world stuff while neat may not make sense yet. Or may never make sense unless you've finished the divine dungeon series. However, most of the story is good slice of life stuff. I personally enjoyed the details in the crafting, and ritualist stuff. I like it when it gets into magical theory based on real science and logic. Oh, and not to forget one of my new favorite characters, the Coffee elemental. OMG, how has no one thought of that before? So cute too. "Drink me. I'm delicious." I can absolutely see this as a plushy.
Score: 7.5 out of 10
