Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore

After a lifetime of misery, his life came to an end and the boy was reborn as a genderless slime in a magical steampunk fantasy world called Theia. On Earth, he was called a psychopath and a freak. And now, he was a true monster and was hunted by humans. Even the so-called ‘god’ of this world wanted him dead. It was a good thing he was already a bit psychotic or else this situation would’ve driven him mad.

Incredibly clever, and rather deserving of praise!

Reviewed at: Chapter 21 | Dungeon Raid 2

Whether it's in the incredible portrayal of a psychological phenomenon (and let me just say this: psychologically speaking, this work is phenomenal, in particular upon the notion of 'the form of one's body influences and in some ways decides portions of their identity.' Simple idea, and not even particularly 'out there' or notably 'untrue' by any means: but this work absolutely addresses it in a manner that anyone with the mildest interest in the subject would be remiss to ignore!) or whether it's in the absolutely clever ways the author utilizes their established rules/mechanics: The Slime and The Bounded Starsails scores top points from me in both departments.

The only section of writing I wasn't strictly thrilled about was the prologue, but while it didn't impress me when first I read it: I had cause to wonder about it some as I read through the piece. If one does read it, it then raises a fascinating question through the rest of the piece: how did we get here? Ordinarily, the question is a crass ask and simplistic, but given the notable psychological 'presences' in the piece: it raises an almost disturbing handful of possibilities, and likely lends support to what the 'second book' in the series might entail.

The 4 stars for style isn't because I feel that it fails in the category, but rather it's because it isn't as fresh or incredible in general writing style as its characters are or grasp of mechanics and evolving story seems to be. The 4 there is a contrast 'average' in a work which is anything but merely average :)

Finally, I just want to say: well done! Truly well done! I'm looking forward to the rest! :)
