System programmer: The Maiden and The Madman
After dying, our main character found himself summoned by a young woman. She comes from a long line of summoners and had expected to partner up with a powerful being, like the rest of her family. Instead, she summoned a computer programmer, who from now on will be living inside her head. Powerless, he's unable to help her with the upcoming war. Disappointed that neither of them had been blessed by fate with some divine abilities, he decides to build a computer system inside her head himself.

Overall: 8.25 out of 10

Assessment:

Plot: “System Programmer: The Maiden and the Madman” is a fairly standard fantasy novel with adventurous quests and an evil that must be defeated, but adding Joshua as a spirit from the 21st century gives it a unique edge.

Prose/Style: Jean-Philippe Janssens presents a fun, easy-to-read style filled with lots of dialogue quips.

Originality: Janssens takes the standard fantasy plot and tweaks it by having the summoned soul be a boy from the 21st century, lending a relatable and contemporary feel to the storyline.

Character Development: The characters in Jean-Philippe Janssens' fantasy novel are quite unique. The main character, Joshua is a reincarnated soul summoned by Catherine, a summoner from a less technologically advanced world.
