Finding himself kicked out of his foster parents’ home on the night of the Emergence, John Doe Smith doubted even his luck could get any worse.

Now irrevocably changed by the Emergence into what many see as a monster, the newly dubbed Wraith must now deal with the consequences of her new powers in an unfriendly world.

This story is set in the universe of QuietValerie's Kammi Kettu, I have been working with her on this.

Echoing Valerie:

This story has LGBTQ themes, Cuteness and Heartache , so if that's not your thing, I'm sorry :).

I like the character development and the details given in the mc’s background. It really brought a sense of thought when I processed the first information and brought me to right mow of review it. Overall It’s a great start with interesting hooks here and there as the story develops.

So, I've been enjoying this story from the perspective of someone who created the world it's written in, with the help of the lovely author of this story. So there is a bias here. That being said, I have always admired the way her writing is carefully crafted and constructed with thought, a pretty intense juxtaposition with my own writing, which is throw haphazardly at the page.

The story tends to cut out all the miscellaneous crap that bulks up a normal tale, sometimes for the better, sometimes not. This part is really a matter of style and reader's preference if I'm totally honest. So my personal opinion on the matter is that usually I highly enjoy a bunch of fluff that helps flesh out the story, but somehow I find myself with enough information to fill in the blanks here without there being a need for the extraneous crap.

Now, as far as the characters go, I love them, even the one that was created to poke fun at me >:O. Kelly is my creation, but she's been given a lot more character in this story. Robin is a treasure and deserved to be let out of her cage to fly happy and free.

What's grammar? I have no idea.

Songbird feels like quality hot chicken. It was designed to hurt, but it hurts in the best way, and then you get the rest of the flavors and you just sit there in awe at the chef's skills. Robin's treatment from her parents and her institutions and her hope being ripped away a lot hurts, but it hurts in such a way that you want her out, as soon as possible. And I mean, hey Chapter 9 has just gotten released concluding Arc 1. Only good things for Robin now. 

Right Ash?

Right??????

Worth reading but fucccckkkkk meeeeee

Alright, I'll put the TL;DR at the start. This story is good but it's a fucking challenge to bite into.

 

In terms of the authors ability to write I'm more than happy, the characters are also pretty unique, even if they are pretty sparse.

This story is like eating all the crust on a loaf of bread before even considering the mere concept of having a sandwich. You know that the future might be good, but fuck me if the present isn't a bag of dicks that are being mercilessly shoved down your throat.

I don't hate the story for this, quite the contrary. I enjoy stories that play hard to get, it makes you want to read more. Maybe I'm just a masochist. Either way, I recommend reading this.

This story drew me in and had me rooting for Robin right out of the gate. It's amazing just how much each chapter built on this character to the point where you felt like you were right there with her. Sharing her struggle.

 

Not only that, but as things look like they're heating up, you give us a couple of alternate POVs. Usually this is something that drives me crazy because I'm impatient and feel like I'm always chasing the need to see how things turn out. In this case I didn't feel that way at all. Those chapters are every bit as engaging as the main story line. I didn't feel that way at all.

 

Then there's the end of Arc 1. I won't say much because I don't want to spoil anything. I will just say instead that it was glorious, and I really can't wait to see what's in store for Robin next!

NOW IM EMOTIONAL AND WANT MORE

Okay, honestly I am terrible at writing out my thoughts and can't judge style for shit, but here goes nothing.

As is the wonderful trend with the Kammiverse stories, this is a story involving trans subjects and lesbian action. And its soooooooo good. Love the characters and how they are written. Especially love the little collaboration our authors have going on. I could go on on how the plot and characters, and grammer are wonderful, but that's what the stars are ther for, aren't they?

A really good story that while it has nice fluffy moments, really slaps you in the face with a large dose of reality in a great what if universe.
