Good premise, bad editing. (Updated as of ch159)

Okay, first off; the story is good.  The premise is cool, it's slow-rolled nicely, and the ten or fifteen chapters at the start feels like some real classic Starship Troopers bullshit, which is just great.  Read it with the Stellaris soundtrack on in the background.  I'm maybe twenty five chapters in, and looking forward to reading more.

But.  I suspect english isn't the author's primary language, and it shows a lot.  Tenses are a big problem, mostly.  Not so much typos, though there are a few of those; it's more just a constant need for a proofreader that makes it a bit too difficult to get through some paragraphs.  Afterward, when I think back on what I've read, my mind auto-edits most of it out, and I like the story.  But in the moment, actually parsing the language is too challenging to be fun.

I would love to see this get an editing pass.  At that point, I'd probably spike my review up to the 4, 4.5 that I think this story deserves.  But until then, it's difficult to recommend outright.

 

EDIT

Good news!  The author has gotten a lot better at the language and flow of the story.  It's still not perfect, and the rough edges certainly show in terms of dialogue, but it's a lot easier to read, and I'm enjoying it constantly.

Most Room For Improvement goes too....

Reviewed at: 185 - Gone Rogue

Okay, review time.  After having read up to chapter 120 I must say that I have NEVER been so frustrated by a fiction.  This could be one of the very best on this site, but its few flaws are massively impactful.  Lets go over them.

 

First:  Grammar. 

Oh God, it hurts.  So many errors.  Not just in number, but variety too.  Swapped words, wrong tenses, mispellings, and even sentece structure and word choice.  Literally every aspect of grammar takes a hit throughout the course of these chapters.  And consistenly.  This alone was the cause of a loss of a star, maybe even a star-and-a-half.

 

Next:  Style.

We've got info dumps galore as well as poor scene transitions.  Thow in a couple tangential strings of thought, and awkward dialog as well.  These issues are much less prevelant than the constant grammatical errors.

 

And lastly:  Characters.

All of the characters are believable, which is a plus, and the few cliches are used well.   However, there are many situations that come off as inconsistent or illogical.  It only happens a few times, but when it does happen it is quite jarring.  One final note here.  I would have liked to have had a "main" character, as the POV does jump around quite a bit, and having the story favor one character's POV would have made it just that much more engaging for me.  This is total preference though.

 

The best thing this fiction has going for it is the story.  By far.  The author is descriptive, he's built up a world that feels real, and the characters actions and motivations are relatable.  The premise is unique (enough so that I have yet to find its like on RR) and is executed rather well.

I am enjoyng this story quite a bit except for the grammer but I am not sure how much more I can take before I give up on it>

As of chapter six, the fight scenes are definitely a strong point, very enjoyable (really all there is at the current chap).

But I had to stop reading-dear god, get a proofreader. There are a ton of errors.

If it was properly edited, 4 stars so far? I just couldn't keep going through all the errors.

Pleasant addition to unpopular genere.

Story flows smoothly, with suprisingly low amount of sudden changes i peace and gracefully avoid getting clogged on info-dumps. This might be just my personal tendency, but even chapter getting deeper into magic theorem was still interesting and didn't feel out of place, like people explaining things in stories tend to. Even if chapters are discouragingly short they make up for it with terrifying speed they appear with. The whole story seems to be planed beforehand with forewarnings for a few ways situation could develop. Personally I enjoy it enough to not notice errors. Fusion fantasy is rare enough to rank it higher just for genere sake.

Interesting twist on the Isekai genre.

Caught up to chapter 284.
First things first: as stated on the title, it's a nice twist to an overused genre. 
Thinking the human race as ultra tech falling in a medieval fantasy world is really interesting, and, even thou I understand the characters to have all kinds of military background, it's a little exhausting to have descriptions of every little piece of machine they develop.
World building is interesting with lots of character cores and many different plots.
The characters sometimes are interesting and well built but often they just seem shallow and empty. Their love relationships seems a bit forced too.

Spoiler: Spoiler

 The grammar is bad. No point saying that over and over again as other reviews have already done so. Tip to the author: better use of would and should will have a major impact on your writing as well as the differences between similar words such as affect and effect.

Overall, I’ve really enjoyed myself and the writing speed of the author is nothing short of awesome. I hope you can continue to deliver and develop as an author.

Please, ignore any mistakes on my rumblings as English is not my first language.
Thanks and have a great day!

A fresh blend of sci-fi and new world fantasy

This is a novel that brings a breath of fresh air to the over done troupes of new world fantacy.  The sci-fi elements really give it a feel of possiblity and realism that most other novels on this site lack. There are a lot of characters, which can be confusing and daunting, but it adds to the reality of the situation these pople find themselves in. Most all of the characters seem well thought out and have differing motives which helps provide depth. If you enjoy both fantacy and science fiction then this is a must read novel on RoyalRoad, enjoy!

A great blend of fanasy and sci-fi

Set in the not too distant future the UN ship Singapore comes under attack and is forced to escape when the enemy boarding party catastrophically damages the ship in mid-warp sending it light years off course. The captain crash lands on a planet in uncharted space where the crew must face the new world. The new world's inhabitants have magic and resemble fantasy beings like elves, Orcs, goblins, and Dragons and other mythological creatures. It is a world at war and is technologically set in the medieval era. There are some light-hearted goofy moments mixed in as well.

Story-wise I love it. The military jargon is good as well as the transitions from points of view. Spelling needs work or a good editor, but not so bad that you can't understand what the author meant. The grammar does improve further into the story. As of this review, I have read up to chapter 279 and have become a patron.

My daily morning read, along with coffee

Good story, 

I love the genre of mixing tech and magic.

and I like it that contrarily to some others stories of the genre : they don't become uncharacteristicly OP 

its one of may daily pleasure, almost every morning !

The story is well though, with many levels of threats that can provide matter for many further plotlines and chapters

The characters are starting to grow on me, even if we mostly see their actions... however for a story without a Main MC, many characters are fighting to be the most interesting one :)
