This is a surprisingly good read and has some very interesting ideas. I'll start with a recommendation that you give it a chance. 

As some of you might have noticed, this review comes at quite the early stage - Chapter 10. For one, I couldn't wait. For two and more, because I felt like it and because this review will be the bases to compare how things have progressed later on. Hense the not perfect score.  

Now, having said that, let's dive a little deeper. The story is interesting and grabs you in. Although it has a lot of tags attached to it, most are because of one aspect of the overall thing. Sometimes less is better, but as a whole, the storey takes you in from page 1. It has a very well paced world and character building and tells you just enough, without dumping too much on the reader. 

I'll gloss over the grammar and spelling because there is nothing that will catch the eye in terms of mistakes unless you are actively searching for such. 

At the start, it is a bit hard to remember which character is who and what motivates them, but as I said above, they evolve as the story progresses. 

The weakest point of the story is the style. Although it is coherent and the narrative is not complicated, which is not a bad thing, the entire thing is too fragmented. There are way too many paragraphs. It might be a format that is fine on a mobile device with a smaller screen, but on a PC or laptop and some tablets, each paragraph is too short. It makes the entire thing a bit harder to read and get into. Honestly, I've started and stopped after the first two paragraphs over a dozen times in a month. This is something that should be addressed when the story is completed, or when gdlizy has some free time to go over it.


In conclusion, it is a good story that needs some work to become even better. Keep it up!


Overall: Full Reccommendation

Characters: Each character is well crafted. I don't want to give any spoilers but suffice to say that each character has a variety of connections to other characters in the story building this web of interconnectedness which adds alot to the whole ensamble.

Grammar: If there are any mistakes than I didn't catch them. Either I was too busy reading or just didn't recognize the mistakes.

Style: Nothing spectacular here but overall quite solid. One unique aspect is the simplifying down of a complex battle to a waltz which turned something that could have been hard to represent into a simple and engaging element.

Story: We're 35 chapters in and I like what I'm seeing. There's quite alot of world building, powerful characters, interesting dynamics between the major political players, and all of this from what I thought was just going to be a spider woman running rampant and doing ambigous stuffs.

Final Words: This novel can be a bit all over the place and the memory sequences I found to be somewhat confusing so that needs to be worked on the distinction between the memories and the current spot would shine better with some polish.

During the sequence where Princess (MC) is introduced to the ship's manifestaion?? is one of those spots where the flashbacks make the whole thing confusing. Another one is where Princess is introduced to Paleknight.

The idea of using flashbacks like the author did is neat and introduces us to the characters fairly well and made me care about the MC as well as the Android however where there is a blend of Flashback and Current Events needs work as it's a bit of a mess right now.

A really cool novel that I think needs a bit more attention.
