    Status: chapter 34: the danger

    This story is an interesting one. While the world that all the characters move though owes there origin the the Harry Potter novels, the adaptation found here is just different enough to give a breath of fresh air.

    The main character is young to be sure, but so we're the characters in the original works. It almost feels like it pays homage to them in that regard.

    The trust issues that Axel faces are brutal to say the least. Though that's not a bad thing. Trust, when lost, is extremely hard to get back. Mix in his rough upbringing and it feels, if emotionally fueled, realistic. His growth has significance when it happens, far more than it would otherwise.

    I like that the system doesn't appear to be malicious, condescending, or slovenly. It has a purpose and seeks to fulfill it.

    The characters feel human and the world is a fun blend of magic and tech.

    Good work so far. Keep it up.

    I dig it, there might be a few little inconsistencies or things that don’t make much sense in reality but it’s a book that has magic in it so it doesn’t really matter, the MC is a hardened street rat who steals from someone he shouldn’t and is painfully thrust into the wizard world. He’s the typical ‘badass edgy thief’ style character like you might play in a DnD campaign but better fleshed out since he does more than stab and steal

    It's quite good. It managed to include a system into the story without messing up the magic setting and make MC too op. Keep up the good work author.

    Overall I recommend it. 

    The character has a formidable will from the start and gets a chance to earn strength. He is definitely weak at first however in various ways, some obvious and some not so much. I appreciate the character growth and the interesting supporting cast. I also appreciate the changes from canon, making several things more logical or palatable. Then too it is a nice change to see a character that is neither irrationally heroic nor so villainous as to be unsympathetic. He is a bit broken but has a bottom line. I do find interactions with one side character feel out of place (Rose). I also wish some of the zany items and food from the original were included a bit. These are minor quibbles in the end for what is on the whole a very enjoyable novel.

    Status: chapter 15

    So this is a story about an orphan who gets thrust into the wizarding world after gaining a 'system'. The weird part is the kid is 11 but acts like he's in his mid 20s. He calls himself a master thief but again is only 11 and has only been living on the streets for 3 years. The worst part of the entire story is that the MC falls into one of my least favorite tropes, the hyper-anti-social misanthrope whose entire thought process boils down to "all people bad, no trust anyone". It makes for a incredibly shallow character that barely interacts with the other characters. All in all I'd give it a 6.5/10.

    Great history, I was read It in webnovel, but I prefer scriblehub, if the new chapters reach It here at the same time.

    This is one of my favorite novels right now! Axel is a very good main character and I would say more but it is nearly two hours after the last chapter so this is it!
