Good lord it's a challenge to read ...

... literally. Usually I don't write reviews early on, and even more rarely I write these comment style reviews. But you really need one of these.

You have a serious issue in your writing, a really damn serious issue. It isn't about your grammar. It isn't about your spelling. It isn't about the detail. It's about how long your sentences are. Longer sentences are challenging to read. Especially so if you constantly have long sentences. I'm talking about how often an entire paragraph is one sentence.

I have but one heartfelt piece of advice for your general writing. Don't write such long sentences, people will find themselves challenged reading on.

If something is hard to read, it makes people guess twice whether they wish to continue on reading even if the story itself is intriguing.

That flaw was enough to deduce 1.5 stars, the story itself is an excellent find and I feel like the future prospects are going to be really wonderful.

All in all, I recommend you to give it a shot and read a good dozen chapters in. If you are hooked the above flaw becomes bearable.

Sooo, I have finished chapter 71 and I have to say it is different than most stories on Royalroad. 

First of all, if you are from a western country you might encounter a difference in culture. I definitely had that problem. 

About the story (3.5): it is about a student who gets 'superpowers' due to something (the original cause is not -yet- really explained). And he uses it to try and find his missing parents. They are kidnapped by a 'shadow organisation'. It is a fun read, but dont expect real depth.

The style(3.5): 

Never really know what to say here. But he tends to use overly long sentences. You also notice that the author is not a native speaker due to his sentence structure.Grammar(2.5): I would call it good. You notice a couple of mistakes a chapter, but it will improve in the later chapters. 


There is not yet much growth in the mc, but the side characters are pretty fleshed out.

TL;DR  Overall I would recommend it, but dont read it in one sitting. You will get bored or annoyed.

Edit after chapter 112:

I have improved the grade since the story (and the characters) started developing more. Furthermore I have noticed less and less annoying mistakes. There have been some nice foreshadowing moments, so I am curious about the future chapters.
