Enigma - Reborn as a Monster into a World of Heroes

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Traumatising content

A man whom commited heinous crimes when he was alive, stands before the Karma Council to receive his punishment. Punishment to fit the crimes he committed. They reincarnate him into another world as a creature whom the people believe to be monsters. A creature hunted by the heroes of this world, to bring peace back to the land. How will he cope in his new life and adapt to the situations surrounding him?

The cover I am using for this is only temporary as it is something I commissioned for another work a while ago. But since I am temporarily dropping that story and working on this one, I've decided to use it here. At least until I can afford to commission a new cover specifically for this story. The tree and the two creatures in it however, do represent the universe in which this novel takes place in. :)

40 chapters have been reached! Therefore I'm going to start only posting three a week in order to build a backlog. They will be available on:

Monday and Friday @ 6 pm CST

Wednesday @ 12 pm CST

First off, Maiz what you have written so far is solid. The grammar is great, your hints of world building are exciting and the pacing is solid. 

For the 21 chapters you have i would recommend others give it a read. 

There are some confusing points.

The MC is weird, his entire thought process just throws me. He is reincarnate because apparently he did some really fd up things in his previous life. That does not come across at all in his mentality. Honestly Grim the presented bad guy seems closer to the kind of guy you are suggesting he was. He also reacts to humans oddly. He has enough serious negative experiences with the species to surely develop some heavy negative emotion with them. I could understand him eventually moving past it but not whilst he's still experiencing them. 

Where is this story headed ? Sure his uncle is doing bad things to humans but why is that his focus? Why not his sisters? What's driving this priority?
