The village of Roads End, lying on the outskirts of man’s territory near the Deep Forest, knew nothing about the rising tensions among the nearby countries. They lived in peace, receiving the occasional trader while being largely avoided by the strange beasts that roamed the wood. Though most didn’t believe in the forgotten god whose shrine resided just within the forest, they appreciated the quiet village and the cures and tonics the local temple provided.

Maria, a young priestess serving the nameless god, lived happily with her Grandmother in the small temple. Even she wasn’t sure about truth behind the small shrine within the mysterious grove. But when tragedy comes to her home, Maria will be forced to rely on…

The God in the Grove…

As of ch 20 it looks promising.

The style is good, it keeps you reading, and it exposed part of the plot line and world in the early chapters of the story without long flashbacks or interruption of the narration. It was executed quite well.

I havent noticed grammar errors and the character are well built apart for maybe a thing or two.

This is an early review, and I can't say more, but as I already said it looks promising.

I was looking for gems in the rough by searching through the Latest Updates Section, and I found this gem. I picked it up, since I didn't have anything to read at the time, and I am glad I found this story and began to read it. I enjoy stories, where the protagonist is thrown forward in time and stories where the protagonist is a god and this story, has both of those things. Furthermore, the grammar is mostly excellent. Lastly, the story flows well, which is a massive plus in my book. Even stories have tags I like, if they don't flow well, I usually drop them after a few chapters.

Well written, interesting, & engaging

Reviewed at: Chapter 12: Drunk

This story revitalizes the traditional ark following a character thrown forward through time, of forgotten power and glory, and the quest to reclaim it. The author has crafted this narrative in an vibrantly colorful world from a unique perspective that trails the dynamic interplay between god and girl.

This is  traditional fantasy. The protoganist is a forgotten God, Tirr, who has semi-amnesia, is woken to a future where his "empire" has factured into various kingdoms. And as such, various agents are against Tirr for his powers.

While I have read up to chapter 25, the story so far still seem introductory. We've only met a few characters with only a singular purpose, to protect the village that Tirr resides in.

With that said, this story is quite different from the common stories in royalroad. It's not a chinese wish fulfillment xianxia (thank fucking god). It's not a pathetic loser to hero reincarnation/transported to another world. It's not a game story, with 99% spent on grind.

This is a traditional fantasy and at the moment, has a promising start to an epic fantasy. It has varied characters and sensical plot lines (to a point I suppose). The writing style is on point, with the narration describing only what's necessary. It does not go on tangents nor does it lack imagination. And this is what I like most in my readings: short enough to be vivid but not long enough to lose my attention.

However, there are a few personal pet peeves: Some characterse are quite caricature, such as the village head being beyond irrational no matter what the situation. Other characters accept the story's situation too quickly to be believable (such as the princess acceptance of Tirr's power, purpose, and motives within a hair's breath).

I hope the author can improve from the above but this is definitely one of the top stories in my reading list so far.
