Mechs, Exo Suits and Sci-Fi done right!

This novel is worth your time and you owe it to youself a read if you like one or all of the following:
-Sci Fi
-Good Fiction

It may seem slow to start for some, but I enjoyed it from it's start to where it is currently. Authour has some things he can improve on but it's as close to a perfect novel as you'll find.

  • Overall Score

I enjoy the world and characters this author has created. Mecha stuff is pretty dope. I like how detailed he gets with it.

I am a big sci-fi buff so whenever royal road gets a good one its always a treat.

There were about four months where the author went afk, and I was pretty sure this was dead, but he is back, and I'm glad he is.

I am looking forward to seeing more from this author.

I just didnt want to put it down.

Really great story

i like the Charakters even if the main Character is a bit too Op with his A.I. After the first 40 Chapters it gets alot better. I also felt like the autor knows his sience.  The writing is great. I especially like the team that gathered in squad Zero they each have a lot more personality than most other non protagonist on this site.

I read a lot and it is one of the great ones on the internet. If you put it on amazon i buy it .

No errors found. Interesting story. Weird but likable MC. Side characters are interesting as well.

I don't have time for an advanced review right now but I can tell you that Skully delivers again with an other category. The grammar and style are on point, and as with his other story there is a great attention given to worldbuilding which makes the story even more immersive and believable. Last point I LOVE the character development here. Keep up the good work Skully

  • Overall Score

This is definitely one of my favorites on this site. 

What I like is that the characters are distinct and interesting. That is quite a feat on this website as most stories either have characters that feel the same or are simply just cookie-cutter archetypes. 

I also like the take on the genius OP MC. The main character still feels real and believable even though he is absurdly smart, and that is because he has weaknesses. His physical abilities are weaker that a lot of his squad and classmates, but he still succeeds in spite of it. Hopefully you keep that weakness throughout the story as it is the only thing keeping the MC from not feeling ridiculous and the story having a sense of tension.

As for the plot, I like that there is a sense of mystery and that we don't know what exactly is going on because the MC is too inconsequential to know what is going on. Thats a great way to create continued interest.

Read it you will not regret it.


I saw that the Author has the tendincy to hide chapters behind pay wall.

I dont mind that panteon is 20 chapters Ahead. Its extrem compared to other authors. But its no problem as long as the chapters get released over time.

You have an extrem update shuedle. Im not sure how you manage 4 chapters a week. Please dont burn yourself out.

The other story had chapters fully hid behind paywall thou and that is a no go.

I do hope you dont plan to do it here. It would certainly ruin the rating of this really good work.

Dont forget not everyone has the money to buy books / your work.



The prolog allready hit me and it shows on a very belivible level what earth could become if we joined together.

Part will happen either way or has allready happend on the tech scale.


Also finally a shool life were the MCs life is not constantly in danger due to jelous shool mates. They may be still jelous but they keep it to the arena. 
So again mutch better then the usal stuff you read here.


The sci-fi too is one of the best i have read. And even more beliveble.


All in all i can only recomend this with 5 stars in all.  Thats my personal option here.

I dont mind grammer as mutch as others. The style is good the charcter are good the story keeps me coming back. 

Only the wandering inn and savage divinity have that aspect from everything i read so far.
