... and a different view on life and death, or undeath, I suppose.
It is rare to find a well done vill.. cough.. good man misunderstood by the masses, but this one is among the best I have seen.
I haven't found a flaw yet, be it in story grammar or anything else, and I really enjoyed it so far.
Nothing more I could say, five stars in everything.
Seriously, the title says everything. With Vainqueur The Dragon, he did what I thought impossible by keeping every new chapter just as fresh and humurous as the very beginning. After reading the first 11 chapters of Never Die Twice, I have no doubt that pattern of quality will continue!
Nice story, refreshing view point and I am a sucker for villian point of view Stories.
Coming from VH's Vainqueur series I had expectations for another lighthearted fantastical powertrip. Which got shanked in an alley and arisen as genuine appreciation for a carefully curated, character focused tragedy.
'Never die twice' is at it's core a somber piece about the fight against inevitability and mortality, it's philosophical and emotional underpinnings. That it still keeps an entertaining instead of educational tone is all thanks to Durand's skillful character writing and morbid humor. And while the story races to it's inevitable conclusion it is the conflict between the actors, their progression and their deconstruction which makes up the meat of the story. I strongly urge any prospective reader to actually deliberate the dia- and monologues in this story, instead of treating them as mere illustration between battle scenes.
A few things bothered me, like the occasional grammatical oddity, but mainly the feeling that the story feels torn between entertaining it's reader with battle and intrigue and actually exploring and challenging it's actors. Regrettably the latter does not achieve it's full effect due to the brevity of the work and the heavy focus on it's protagonist. Which is incredibly well written nonetheless. Lastly, at times internal monologue or debating get's increasingly muddled and hard to follow without analysing sentence by sentence. A lot of alluded plot avenues also never see fruition, which makes me hope for thorough editing or a revisit in the future.
To sum it up, I view this story as a flawed yet inspiring masterpiece detailing the rise of a villain through the lense of his inner struggles and absolutely worth the read.
very interesting concept of a alchemist running a dungeon. The question is does this dungeon have a core and is does it have sentience maybe not to early to know the functionality and mechanics. Can't wait to see the ends and outs and insides I'm pretty sure of experimentations giving necromancer and alchemist classes.
A misunderstood genius who is trying to conquer death. Never Die Twice is a beautifully written piece, skillfully combining folklore, myths and legends to write a grand new tale. With deep characters, story progression and world building Void Herald's has created a captivating story.
I usually don't write reviews so early into stories (read all the chapters but there aren't a lot).
I know Void's writing ability from other novels, so this is an advance I'm willing to give.
I really like the setting, motivations, writing style and just about every scene so far.
Good grammar, though you get a word out of place every few chapters. Author fixes errors and his writing grammar is very pleasant to read
Fantastic. The grammar is immaculate, and the story promises a lot to come in the future. I'm already anticipating Tye's exploits in new places and the storybuilding, which hints at a large world.
Only, as of so far, the characters do not have that much depth to them. This is being particularly picky, though, because only 10 chapters have been released as of this review.
I think this will become big.
Void Herald back at it again with yet another banger. Comedic, but with a few serious undertones that mesh quite well.
Void Herald does it again here, first Vainqueur, which is one of my favorites which is still going strong after hunderd chapters, and now this story. And he just hits the right notes once again, writing a story that just grabs me from the start.
The characters are just fun and quirky, like those from the author's other stories, grammar is on the same level as the author's other story, which means barely any problems with the grammar, so makes for a smooth read.
The author has done an interesting take on the nine realms from Nordic mythology, keeping it rather original and fitting with the system, which seems to be mostly the same as his other story. Im interested in just where the plot will go from here, there are just so much possiblities with the MC's goal and current ongoing events in the story.
I like the story being more serious than Vainqueur, while still keeping those little details that can make someone laugh.
While it may be not as hilarious as Vainqueur's story is or as good as it overall, it is still fun to read and one i would recommend to give a try.
