In a world full of super powers, Felix has a pretty crappy one.
He has the ability to modify any item he owns. To upgrade anything.
Sounds great on paper. Almost like a video game.
Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities.
With that in mind, Felix settled into a normal life. A normal job.
His entire world changes when the city he lives in is taken over by a super villain. Becoming a country of one city. A city state.
Surprisingly, not a whole lot changed. Politicians were still corrupt. Banks still held onto your money. And criminals still committed crime.
Though the black market has become more readily available.
And in that not so black market, Felix discovers he has a way to make his power useful after all, and grasps a hold of his chance with both hands.
Warning and minor spoiler: This novel contains graphic violence, undefined relationships/partial harem, unconventional opinions/beliefs, and a hero who is as tactful as a dog at a cat show. Listen at your own risk.

So good, I'm lacking the appropriate adjective
I'm listening to audio books daily for at least 2,5 hours. Some of them are good, some not so. But this one was outstanding. I must admit, the first 30 (?) minutes I was definitely not convinced and I remember that I was briefly thinking about returning the book, but I'm so glad I didn't.
The story is truly unique. It has a rich set of round characters, some a bit exaggerated, but it makes them even more lovely.
Jeff Hays did a really great job of bringing every single one life and give them a unique character.
What confused me in the beginning, but helped me to dive even deeper into the story were the "sound effects" when Felix was thinking or someone was talkin on the phone, great!
I often get bothered when I hear a new audio book and realize that this was just the beginning of (another) series I have to follow, but when I realized it this time, I was simply relieved that the story will go on.
Just saw that book #2 was released some days ago and I hope it will be available as audio book soon.
Can't wait, recommend it highly!
