It's a joke that this isn't among the best rated

I have zero bad things to say about this fiction. I don't know what it is doing on this site, it ought to be published properly. It is exciting and original, and is polished and worked over in a way that is seldomly seen here. Read or it's your loss.

TLDR: FrustratedEgo is one hell of a writer, but this story is one huge frustrating blob of pent-up tension with very little release. 

You know how sometimes authors will use the first few chapters of a story to show how the MC starts out as a weak and confused character striving beyond reason to grow stronger only to use the next few chapters to show how totally OP the MC gets? Well, FrustratedEgo spends the entire first book doing this exact thing...only without the OP part.

Don’t get me wrong, FrustratedEgo has some serious talent and a very captivating writing style. The author does an excellent job building a world that is interesting. The characters are given depth and personality such that I felt pulled into their stories. And errors with spelling and sentence structure seemed almost non-existent.

However, despite how into the story I was, I also found it is seriously frustrating. Its like chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter of foreshadowing, confusing mind trips, and maybe-next-times. I’d estimate that I spent the last 10 chapters just waiting for the MC to get his crap together…maybe in book 2.
