On a planet far away from Earth, an ancient tree lives inside a beautiful forest. When the tree realises that it's life is coming to an end, it creates a seed without a soul. The seed begins a long journey, being passed from person to person, until it finally collides with the soul of a girl from Earth and sprouts. With her human knowledge, the girl tries to survive in this world... as a tree.

 

Note: This is my first time writing a novel, so my writing style might be a little rough around the edges sometimes, especially in the first ten or so chapters. I'll probably rewrite them at some point... later. Also, the MC will be introduced in chapter 13. Chapter releases once every six days.

A slow start, but a promising beginning !

 

Story & Characters:

The pace of the story is, overall, pretty slow. As the synopsis stated, the story starts off with the "adventures" of an inanimate , non sentient seed, and progresses as characters interact with it. As of chapter 8, the MC hasn't yet been introduced. You simply follow the seed as it being passed from one person to another.

These characters are not related and merely secondary. However, although those characters probably not appear again in the story, you can only appreciate how well written they are. They are only secondary characers, they don't even have much influence in the story, yet, the author took the time to give each one of them a background and a personality. I'm not the patient reader type, and I'm not into slice of life. I usually drop a story if I'm not hooked into it in the very first chapter or if the story doesn't progress fast enough. However, this time, I found myself reading up to the 8th chapter. Even though the MC still hasn't been introduced. Even though we keep swithing between characters. So props to the author !

 

Grammar and writing style:

You can spot a few mistakes once in a while, but nothing too blatant. Grammar is more than decent, you can read the story without squinting.

The writing style, however, is a bit inconsistent. Sometimes, it is very well written, with a great pace, great descriptions, and a good immersion. Then, other times, the writing style suddenly falls short. It is by no mean terrible, but the sudden change can be striking. Some sentences become minimalist, and some transitions are abrupt. Once again, nothing terrible. It is only a detail. The writting style, overall, stays great.

 

Overall, I definitely recommend this story to anyone looking for something chill. Nothing too epic here yet. Just a laid-back, but entertaining story. Definitely worth a try.

Imaginative, well thought out story

Reviewed at: Chapter 9: Huntress' Pet

Clearly a lot of thought has gone into this story. It's fun and interesting with unexpected twists. I think the slow build up enhances the overall story and provides some delightful scenes and characters.

Tbe the prologue is pretty nifty a little on the long side but good reguardless gives the story a lot to branch off of in the future. Quite enjoy the characters even more now in hindsight because the story is about a Talking gender-bent tree just think of the implications of that for a second.

Im Till 19 and for now it's very intriguing. The beginning was especially flavorful. Can't wait to read more of it.
