My Magical Career at Court Living the Dream After My Nightmare Boss Fired Me from the Mages’ Guild!

Magic is everything to Noelle. She loves it so much that she puts up with her horrible job at the Mages’ Guild to practice it. The hours are long, the pay is rock-bottom, and the boss is a nightmare! But as long as she has magic, she can withstand the hardships. At least, until the day she hears these dreaded words:“You’re fired.”

Noelle’s hometown in the outskirts of the kingdom doesn’t offer many alternatives for a career in magic—especially now that she’s been blacklisted from guild work! Just when it seems like all hope is lost, Noelle’s old friend Luke shows up to give her an opportunity she never could have imagined: a job as a royal court magician.

Now Noelle is living the dream, rubbing shoulders with the kingdom’s greatest magicians and showing off her skills. She has a beautiful new workplace and a generous new boss, but how will she cope with intense entrance exams, her marriage-obsessed mother, and the rules of etiquette? What awaits Noelle in her magical new career?

  • just finished vol 2 and some of what I felt about vol 1 still holds true. it’s still easy to read for the most part with decent characters. but the same goes for the constant switching of viewpoints which is getting annoying. on top of that, i feel like the action/combat scenes are… not that well written. there are novels where you can read it and picture it in your mind what’s going on as if it’s a manga, but this is not it at all. it’s a little all over the place, things are not really being described well and sometimes just summarised as “a flurry of attacks”. there are scenes that makes me wonder “how” and go “huh?!”. if it’s more of a slice of life this might have been fine, but the backstory of the FMC is that she’s very very strong, and i kinda feel like not being able to flesh that out is hurting the series a bit.

    then the story in volume 2 doesn’t seem to vary much and seems to be just repeating the same formula. the romance portion has almost zero progress, and the plot progression feels slow. it’s a short-ish book to begin with, but there are still a few “extra side chapters” at the end to pad things out, and that is on top of the switching of viewpoints at the same events. I think there are still things that are interesting about the series, and it’s still a comfy enough read, but volume 2, the enjoyment factor is much lower.

    so i’ll have to retract my last comment on the 1st volume saying that if you like Dhalia in bloom you might enjoy this too, since i don’t feel that way anymore. I just don’t feel like it’s in the same tier at all in terms of characters, writing, or story quality.

  • Perfect book example of Mary Sue type character

  • I’m with lunox on this one here. It’s a comfortable read and besides that Noelle is an overpowered clueless airhead a real nice story. Nothing special but also nothing annoying. The male MC is in love with her but because she can’t read the signs and even dismissing them despite her mother constantly telling her she should go for him it goes nowhere for now. Also there probably is a rival lurking in the background already.

  • pretty easy and enjoyable read for the most part. lovable airheaded female MC, likeable love interest, interesting enough premise and supporting characters. it does like to switch viewpoints from time to time which can sometimes feel a little jarring, but it’s often not too long, and usually related to the female MC (expounding her abilities or just how other ppl views her actions), so it isn’t that bad. but definitely would be better if there were a bit less of it IMO. As for romance, there is a clear male MC for now, but there isn’t really much romance going on yet. Understandably so since it’s the first volume, and gotta let the author cook a bit longer first. a decent start for a first volume. at the base of it, i think it has similar cliches to Dahlia in bloom which is a series i really enjoyed, so if you like that, you might like this too. I think it’s not quite at the same level in terms of the quality of writing, but it’s good enough that I don’t feel like I’ve wasted my time reading it.

  • Loving all this josei recently. Thanks! 😁
