The Library at Mount Char [book, audiobook]

I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DARK ACADEMIA IS SO I'M GOING TO CLAIM IT'S THIS. I LIKED THIS BOOK QUITE A BIT. I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT FEELS LIKE THERE IS A MILLION FANTASY BOOKS WITH THIS BASIC STRUCTURE BUT THIS STILL MANAGED TO BE TOTALLY UNIQUE. LIKE THERE IS A MILLION BOOKS THAT ARE LIKE "WHAT IF GREEK GODS BUT IN MODERN DAY" BUT THIS WAS THAT, BUT LIKE, INSTEAD OF GREEK GODS BEING SOME FICTIONAL RELIGION THAT SEEMS LIKE SUMERIAN CREATION LEGENDS OR SOMETHING.  LIKE GOD BEING A MORTAL MAN WHO DEFEATED THE PREVIOUS GOD 60,000 YEARS AGO WITH THE HELP OF A TIGER AND A WOMAN WHO DIED AND BECAME THE SUN TO BRING LIGHT TO THE EARTH. THE BOOK DOESN'T EVEN DO THAT MUCH WITH MOST OF IT'S IDEAS BUT I REALLY LIKE HOW DENSE IT IS WITH THROW AWAY STUFF. LIKE A GODDESS THAT IS CONSTANTLY PREGNANT AND HAS TO KILL HER CHILDREN AT BIRTH SO THE SPIRITS OF THEIR CHILDREN CAN WHISPER ALL THE POTENTIAL LIVES THEY COULD HAVE LIVED. IT'S A BOOK THAT IS REALLY GOOD AT MAKING UP WILD STUFF THEN NOT NEEDING TO ELABORATE PAST MENTIONING IT BECAUSE EVERY CHARACTER IS SWORN TO NOT EXPLAIN ANYTHING ABOUT THEIR DOMAIN TO ANY OTHER CHARACTER SO THE AUTHOR CAN JUST MAKE UP ANYTHING COOL THEY THINK OF AND THEN DROP IT INTO THE STORY LIKE A BOMB AND MOVE ON WITH A BUILT IN EXCUSE WHY THAT IS ALL THE INFORMATION YOU WILL EVER GET ABOUT THAT THING. IN A LESS WELL WRITTEN BOOK THAT WOULD BE EXTREMELY ANNOYING, BUT IN THIS IT ALWAYS GIVES JUST ENOUGH INFORMATION TO GET YOU THINKING OUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF WHAT WAS JUST SAID THEN NEVER BOGS DOWN BY ACTUALLY HAVING TO WRITE OUT ANY OF THE DETAILS. 

PS. IN MY IMAGINATION THIS BOOK IS ENCANTO BUT IF THE MOM DIED INSTEAD OF THE DAD.
