There is a decent story here. However, it is behind a wall of bad grammar. It is so bad that sometimes I had to reread entire paragraphs in order to understand what is going on.

Wrong tenses, quick and confusing pronoun and PoV changes, spelling errors. Sometimes the phrases don't make sense, and they sound like literal translations of a foreign language into English.

And it's unfortunate. Because there is a cool premise here. A grand expedition into a new world. Some echos of lost memories for our main character. Elves and a low fantasy setting. A Doctor main character. There's a lot of fresh ideas that spark the imagination.

With a thorough grammar review, and a solid edit, this could be something interesting. But as it is right now, its almost unreadable.


Don't get my rating wrong, the book has room to improve[while the grammar errors are not that jarring since English isn't my first language]. But the book has something I value much more than impeccable grammar:I find myself looking forward to each chapter, and for that I give such a good rating. It might be the good world building or the interesting characters it might also be the setting which  is quite unique [I mean where can your find a book about mystery, fantasy, exploring, medicine in a fantasy world, naval and infantry warfare, fighting giant monsters and maritime nomads]. But the reason this book intrigues me so much sould be a combination as well as some things a reader doesn't recognize continously. So I can only warmly recommend to give this book a chance.
