Sufficiently Advanced Magic: Arcane Ascension, Book 1 Audiobook by Andrew Rowe is fantasy work in a universe where magic and people who wants to develop their magic skills should go to a test, a dangerous one indeed.
In this world, people take a test done in the Serpent Spire; this is an enormous tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and many monsters. The main idea to go through the tower is to obtain an attunement which granted magical powers to the bearer if he or she survives the trials. Stories are told that those who get to the top of the tower will be given a blessing by the Spire’s goddess. It is good to insist that this would be obtained if you survived your time at the tower. Five years ago, Corin Cedence’s brother attempted to take the test, but he never returned home.
So now it Corin’s chance to go through the tower and prove his worthy to get the attunement and he is also interested in finding out his brother within the walls of the tower, if he is still alive in there. He pretends to get to the top of the tower and talk to the goddess, but the dangers ahead are going to require for Corin to be ready for them and he will need all the help he can get from his training, some allies, and a lot of inventiveness.
The obtaining of the attunement guarantees your entrance to a school to improve the magic gift given and, after a certain time, it will give the chance to return to the tower to earn more attunements.
But in the case of Corin, the attunements are just one part of the quest.
