- Traumatising content
The Netherworld: it is a hellish landscape inhabited only by demons, creatures born from the dark abyss. It is also the only world Salvos knows.
Joining the ranks of newborn demons, Salvos is thrown into the violent, anarchy-ruled landscape of that world. To survive, she will have to learn, she will have to adapt, and she will have to evolve. She will gain experience to reach new Levels of power.
Her curiosity aids her but her pride could be her fall. It is the nature of the Netherworld to avoid or conquer any threats faced. After all, the law of evolution is survival of the fittest, and Salvos is a survivor. And perhaps, eventually, she will leave this world behind for a better place. But is that what she even wants?
Do note that it's a slow-paced but action-packed litrpg!

It's an overall fantastic story, I can tell the author put a lot of time and effort into this story and that they like exploring the world they built just as much as Salvos the half star is only for the fact that i wished that it delved deeper into the different cultures of this world and showed how things like the gaming system and magic have shaped the people of this world as compared to the people of our world or in other words more world-building. I really enjoyed how the story started and how Salvos views the world. Keep up the good work, can't wait for the next chapter!
I really like Salvos as a character, she is cute. I wonder what makes her different from other Demons. Really nice evolutions in the story and the LitRPG elements feel very good. No real grammar mistakes that you have to worry about. Thank you for posting your story and I hope you continue to do well with your writing!
The best and only way i can decribe Salvos is Chaotic nutral (don't give me that look.) she's just a person trying to survive, make her name known, understand the world(worlds?) she inhabits, and make friends no matter their race while b-lining past your (possibly) unconscious body becuse reasons .
I rated this four and a half stars because the worldbuilding is great, we slowly get introduced to it instead of a info-dump, there are only minor typos, and I like our demon MC. She doesn't 'become human' all at once, the author slowly develops her character adding in more human emotions along the way. You should definitely give it a read if you enjoy stories with fantasy themes!
When you enjoy a book, you just do, at least that is how I see it. And I have really enjoyed this read. I will buy Vol 1 just to support the author. A fine job, keep at it. It is a very unique take on the group, and Salvos reminds me of another on RR called " Misadventures of a Rampageinng Demon" and the loli Elder God in "" which you can find on Amazon and Scribble Hub. These book(s) have been well worth the read.
In a world where 90% of stories are Isekai/Reincarnation stories, Salvos sets itself apart by having a protagonist that's an inhabitant of the world where the story takes place. The story is written from the perspective of a newborn demon and and it shows when the protagonist makes illogical decisions based on a foreign thought process, or from naivety.
There is not much of the story to on at the time of this review; but if the author's other work is any indication, this is one to keep an eye on.
This is one of the most solid and captivating stories on RR.
The style is good; the execution of the gamer system is especially well done, being incorporated as a fundamental aspect while still keeping it as a secondary aspect.
The story is compelling and has a clear and logical progression; it is remarkably well executed and remains internally consistent and cohesive .
The story was not written by a four year old or a non-native speaker learning the language; the grammar is at an acceptable level for a professional work.
The characters were really the best part of this story; Salvos and Haec are awesome and well thought out. Having a child character allows the reader to learn about the world around them with them, and the characters are both individually and dynamically compelling to read.
This is an awesome story all around and I cannot overstate my excitement going forward for season two. It is nice to have a protagonist who is focused on survivability before all else, and I cannot wait to see the adventures the little group gets into; also, love the mystery component, can't wait for the specifics on his true identity although there have been hints.
If you are wondering if you should give this a try, the answer is most definitely yes. If you want a story synopsis, I won't be able to do a better job than the author already has, so read the story description.
STYLE: The author's writing style does the job, and does it well: doesn't break immersion, is easy to understand, (no need to reread sentences or paragraphs trying to understand it) and overall makes the story pleasant to read.
STORY: This is where Salvos shines the most in my opinion. The premise of a new born demon/creature is not new, but it does allow the author to explore a lot of interesting ideas in which I think a lot of other similar stories overlook. Things like the nature of sentience, morality, etc. The author uses this potential well, not beating the reader over the head with he same point over and over, and making the allusions subtle enough to not get in the way of the story. Nor does it take itself too seriously; it is fun to read, and is relatively light-hearted. No complaints here as regards to the story, overall very solid.
GRAMMAR: Typos exist, but unlike some stories, this seems to have been ran through a spell checker, so that's good. As far as I could tell, the author never made the same typo twice, and typos never break immersion or make it difficult to understand what is being conveyed.
CHARACTERS: While not as strong as the story, it is by no means bad; only slightly behind the story for me. Characters feel dynamic and real, rather than walking personality traits, like "the brash angry one" or the "cool and collected one". They also show signs of real character development. At the time of writing it's still pretty early in the story, but it's obvious the author has plans for the characters, and is thankfully not trying to rush their development.
Overall, this is an easy 5 star, and I always look forward to the author uploading a new chapter. Keep up the good work delta!
Really enjoyed this first volume. Read it in one batch. Has a similar feel to Azarinth Healer. Power build is at good speed and not to fast. Each evolution makes sense and its interesting watching the mc learn more about the world. I'm curious how the author will handle the mc with once main motivation solved.
There are parts which are painfully boring, overall a decent story.
The beginning is really good. It starts to slow down coming into the 2nd arc.
3rd arc picks back up and has some good character development in it.
World is not overly intresting of what I've read so far. Evolutions are pretty intresting but nothing out of the ordinary. Really what saves this story is its characters
