Still great story, but not as good as the first chapters

Reviewed at: Chapter Eighteen

Review as of Chapter 18:

Still very entertaining story, but it seems like the author is gradually returning to well worn tropes: Evil guys with gloing red eyes, probably controlled, slaying dargons - well, drakes - and, much to my dismay, the beginnings of a harem. Main cahracter started of quite interesting and faceted, but seems to approach the generic good guy. Still very entertaining and highly recommended, but no full fife star material any more.

Old review:

It's only five chapters so far, so I'll update the review around chapter ten - not really enough to judge characters and development yet, and I have seen many promising storys dropped early.

Great high fantasy with almost no mistakes in grammar and storytelling, nice style with frequent backflashes. Highly recommended.

VERY WELL WRITTEN PROFESSIONAL STORY

Reviewed at: Chapter Fourteen

This is one of the most professionally written story on royalroad and it stands out quite differently in both story and characters. The story, while slow in the begining and simple in it's description, is much more realistic and believable than all these Wuxia or wish fulfilment stories that plagues royalroad. The strength of this work, howver, lies in the characters and their interaction.

The characters are very well thought out with their own personality and purpose. The story, could use a little more spice but it's still a very good and entertaining read!

Noble warrior with uncontrollable magic

Reviewed at: Book 2: Chapter Two

Decent, if slow paced book about a guy who keeps accidentally binding women to him. It's like a harem book without any sex. He eventually sleeps with one of the girls, but it's all rated-G stuff.

Pacing needs to increase because boredom was setting in by the time I caught up to the author.

Great Style of writing. not the best, But really really good. And by best i mean NY times best sellers level of writing so me giving this a 4 and half star for style score shouldn't discourage you. It also started out as a 3 star in style and grammar but the author NOTICEABLY improves with every chapter. I can see my review changing to 5 stars by the time i get to the 20th chapter if the trend continues. 

As for the story, i found some inconsistencies with the setting, perharps why bards wouldn't accept a woman when women have the better singing capabilities of the sexes? it just doesn't make sense. In a world where there are bards, the male to female ratio should realistically be 30 to 70% and should be a matriarchy rather than a patriarchy, this is my only gripe so far. The other inconsistensies have been handled so well by the author's great story telling that i simply forgot them/accepted them fully. if this author were to write a book where the sky was red then i would be looking up at the clouds and wandering why in reality skies are blue. my reason for giving the story a 4 and half star is due to the plot not really holding my interest as much but the way it's told has be going chapter after chapter wandering what is going to happen next and that for me is the greatest talent an arthur can have. to grab the interest of someone with no interest in your genre.

Character score? 5/5 because they all have their own personalities, their own likes and dislikes. there are no inconsistencies with their actions. very fleshed out without info dumps. they genuinely feel like real people. 

great story so far. looking forward to more and a published book perhaps?
