When Alim is exposed by his rival Liam for academic corruption, his career in the Pinnacle University of Scholarly Magic is destroyed, and only a breakthrough in the study of the highly-profitable essence known as demonweave will be enough to regain his standing.

His efforts to restore his reputation are disrupted by the University, however, when they assign him to uncover a means to replicate the production of demonweave, along with a team of experts on demon magic: his nemesis, Liam; his primary competitor in the field of demon research, Sylvestra; and the handsome and tender-hearted professor, Jack.

As if that wasn't bad enough, Alim is well-aware the University intends to sell demonweave to mages for a hefty profit, and they will expect their researchers to do whatever it takes to discover a way to control the production of demonweave, even at the risk of the demons who create it—and there's no telling how the demons will retaliate.

Dislikes

  • It feels like the story is dragging a bit even though it's not very long*
  • That the department head punched Alim in the throat; responding with violence seemed stupid

Emotional Depth

Content Warnings

  • Violence (main, one, present)

*DNF @ 33% – the theme of constant resentment seems tiring, and the negativity was off-putting enough that I did not want to finish the book
