Summary

Enter the dangerous world of Flex, distilled magic in crystal form. The most dangerous drug in the world. Snort it, and you can create incredible coincidences to live the life of your dreams.

This complete trilogy includes Flex, The Flux and Fix. Over 37 hours of epic thrills, psychological twists and sci-fi adventure.

A desperate father embraces forbidden magic, drawing from his obsession with bureaucracy in order to save the life of his injured daughter. An obsessed bureaucromancer who's turned paperwork into a magical Beast that can rewrite rental agreements, conjure rented cars from nowhere, track down anyone who's ever filled out a form. But when all of his formulaic magic can't save his 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.

First book is good, but...

...then it turns into a kid's book. Infantile story, stupid choices. Couldn't even finish it.

Awful!

Listening to this narrator is like being fired at by a shotgun, every word is punched out with no expression. It grates so badly.
The story makes very little sense and i found it so tedious that I couldn't finish it. It's gotta go!

Terrible

Hard to keep up with the story, too complicated and badly explained. Tried and tried but gave up. I got about 6 or 7 hours into and I still don’t really understand what it is about

biggest gripe

for a nerd that gets all the pop culture references peppered throughout the story, it was ear bleedingly grating to hear the narrator mispronounced words. from videogames to anime it he mangled references. I don't fault him for not knowing, but it should have been quality checked to make sure by either the author or a Google search.

what a ride!

I fell head first into this trilogy, and could not stay away! my only complaint is the narrator, who continually mispronounced words and tended to be so quiet at some points that it was impossible to hear without turning the volume up very high, then being deafened at the next line said at full volume. otherwise, an amazing series!

Turning Meth into Fantasy is Too Fun

To put it bluntly I was shocked with the most guilty pleasures with how the in your face writing reeled me into a book that I feel many listeners would be wary of if they don't relax and give it a chance. The characters go places I don't imagine and grow in ways I would not have chosen and that is the best and most fun thing about it. An author that is not only not predictable but also still satisfying in his decisions and has me wondering how happiness can be pulled off and still believed is a treat. My one complaint? The narrator gives the main character a totally different voice from how he voiced him in the first two books and it really grated on my nerves. While it the character, I wished he went back to not trying and using his own voice for the guy.
