Great author, great expectations, great start

Vihyungrang has previously completed two other novels on this site, so going into this one, here's what you can expect: A long, well-planned, well-paced story with a creative and fleshed out world and a variety of three dimentional and interesting characters. Releases every four days with extremely few exceptions, and absolutely no worry about getting dropped. Grammar and style that are at the higher end of anything seen on RRL, and are continuously getting better - don't expect anything like exposition dumps, but do expect to be imersed in what feels like a breathing world. A protagonist who is ridiculously overpowered compared to most, but still has to work to achieve her goals, and who is facing challenges on a galactic scale. Also, occasional mature scenes that are also spoilered out so you can avoid them if you want.

As for this story itself, it's too early to say, but while the start seems a bit slow, there's definitely the feeling that it is building up to something epic. It's epic science-fantasy with the theme of newer species slowly uncovering the secrets of an ancient empire, but it seems that each of the main factions are already getting their moments to be detailed.

Verdict: if science-fantasy, overpowered protagonists, or just plain old epic adventures are at all your thing, you shouldn't even consider missing this.

Great story, a little weak on the reasoning behind the disappearance of the progenitors - surely some would have fled beyond the rim of their empire where the desease couldn't reach them, if no other path existed. But still a 5 star+ for overall awesomeness

About trust in an author and an interesting novel.

There is a moment in the life of an author where they gain the trust of the readers. If tomorrow Jim, butcher, author of the Dresden Files, releases a book about whatever I would provably read it becaus I trust Butcher to deliver something at least decent and worth my time.

I trust this author, and you should too.

 

as far as song of the void is concerned the the history so far (2018/12/19) is interesting. we have to wait and see.

The beginning of a new epic

If this is anything like the last book released by Vihyungrang then you will be in for a real treat. Based on what has been released so far expect an epic space odyssey dealing with themes of mourning, new beginnings and hope. I cannot wait for more to be released.

(Up to chapter 20) This is amazing.

I love this so far, i really do. The grammar is perfect as far as i can tell, charcters are fun and lifelike, the story is full of the right tropes in the right amounts to be fun instead of bland, and it is like Vihyungrang's other works. Which is only a good thing with its great style of writing. Hope you enjoy writing for a long time.

Wonderful to see more from Vihyung

this is anything like his previous stories, i'd say grab a bag of popcorn, but you'll be through far too many by the time you realize it's 6 in the morning and got no sleep. i have on more then one ocassion gotten in trouble in highschool for reading to much, and i'll say this is author is the culprit

If this comes even remotely close to your last story you can't go wrong.

I like it so far but 2 chapters isn't a lot to go on.

Still have 5 stars cuz you finished your last story for now. (Which loads of people don't.)

One of the best pure sci-fi stories on this site.

While it is still short, i can pretty certainly say that this story is really good.

Good Sci-fi is one of the harder things to write, and the author is doing a good job at it so far with the multiple well developed races, the technology used in the novel so far (It is already good, but as said, it is still too early to expect it to be fully detailed,, so im expecting even better to come soon.)

This novel is of the expected quality from one of the best authors on this site, who has already completed 2 novels that are both of good quality, and this new novel looks to be heading in that direction.

Just go read it if you like Sci-fi in general.

Thoroughly enjoyed previous novels from this author, looking forward to what this one will bring. It is both rare and refreshing to have an author with decent grammar, spelling and regular updates.
