Overall

It gives me an aneurysm thinking so few people have found this story. The more the author builds the world the more I love the story. It's not like some fiction on the site where the concept carries the work on its back, but instead, the story has actual substance. It itches the brain in the same way other great fiction can, making me think of the possibilities within the confines of the author's universe long after I stop reading. It makes me genuinely happy knowing someone on the website is doing such work. And best of luck to this amazing author

Overall

The story's premise is interesting and unique. The world has some historical elements mixed with fantasy. The fantasy elements have been growing throughout the story, making them easily acceptable. While some of the characters seemed two-dimensional at first, during these last few chapters the author has started giving more depth to them. Also, the main character has two "souls" in one body, both of which are very distinct. I like the way that the two "souls" communicate with each other. Right now, this is one of my favourite ongoing series on Royalroad. The one negative part for me is that all the fantasy elements and their corresponding abilities have distinct names and premises. As all the characters have lots of different abilities, it is a bit disorienting and hard to remember. Also, as the abilities get upgraded quite fast, it seems a bit too much.

Ok. The idea is intresting but everything is rushed. It is too short. The characters are dolts without a personality.They belive anything. The events pass so fast. It needs to be at least 4 times longer to be acceptable. A rewrite is strongly recommended. YOU NEED TO REREAD YOUR STORY BEFORE PUBLISHING.
