Reborn as a DRAGON

My name is Tim or was that is until I died, there was no light at the end of the tunnel, no white room to choose any cheats from, nor was there any meeting with God.  

I didn’t die heroically saving someone, and I certainly didn’t get hit by a truck. My death was rather stupid and anticlimactic, I had apparently bumped my head while sleeping and passed away... 

That should have been the end of the road for me but like many self-proclaimed main characters, I joined the army of multi-dimension travelers and was reincarnated. 

Being an avid light novel and manga reader, I would have been excited at the opportunity, if not for my new siblings who tried to kill me as soon as I was born, or my mother who seemed to have something with throwing me off cliffs, and let’s not forget my murderous father who forced me to flatten a small country as my Rite of passage. 

Oh did I mention I was reborn as a Dragon?

With the limited amount of chapters in circulation currently, this review is subject to change once more are released. For now, however, this novel is simply fantastic. For me, who has searched the depths of this website for non-human main characters (particularly dragon main characters) this story in particular shines above many of the others I've read and I hope it continues this positive trend well into the future.

Style: the style of a human being reborn as a dragon is not new in the slightest however, the author sort of meshes draconic personality traits together with the reincarnated human which makes for a more seamless transition to this new world. Pair this with the fact that his draconic family is actually present in this novel and it makes for a refreshing experience.

Story: The story so far is, of course, quite limited and as such, I cannot give it a full 5 stars. What is there so far is quite good but there is still no drive or purpose yet which I assume will come soon once the mc learns the ins and outs of living as a dragon in this new world.

Grammar: pretty much flawless albeit a few mistakes here and there. There is nothing that breaks the flow of the story so I'd give a solid 95%.

Character: The characters in this book are, so far, distinctive, 3 dimensional, and developing complexities at a rapid pace that makes me genuinely excited to see how they will turn out in the future.

Overall, I am very happy this novel exists and because of making me happy, I am going out of my way to give this the 5 star review it deserves. Great job author and keep up the great work!

It's a quite interesting take on being a dragon, one where the protagonist doesn't somehow gain a way of shapeshifting into a human by the end of chapter two. 

The story does suffer from some stylistic and grammatical issues, but it's bearable. 

Also Green is cute. 

In short, it's worth a read :P

A good take on the "reincarnated as a dragon"

Reviewed at: Chapter 20: Unfinished business

A worthy reincarnatation story, so far focusing much more on the "being a dragon" than trying to get the previous human life to be the drive behind the new experience/body for the protagonist. It tries to paint the picture of a foreign mind and how interaction happens with a creature that is not intelligent in a human way. I see potential in this, with the various threads that has been revealed so far.

I found the strength to write a review, I feel sad when the author throws his novella and I hope my review will give enough motivation for a long time along with the others who rightly praise you, at least for the moment. Dragon novels have separate criteria for evaluation, the first five ladies stars for the lack of the ability to transform into a human, it is very depressing to read novels in which the hero is a dragon only on paper, in fact, being in the form of a humanoid all the time. In my memory and according to my judgment, this novel ranks second among all the novels about reincarnation into a dragon, the first is the abandoned one, from one Russian author. The style of the story and the characters get 4.5 stars from me, good, interesting, gave me pleasure, but does not make me scream with delight. This is a good job on this site that a reader like me is looking for, sifting through mountains of rubbish to have a good time. I really have nothing to complain about, after reading 14 chapters, I noted for myself personally that there is room for improvement, I will not evaluate grammar, so in the end we have 4.5 stars, plus 0.5 for the fact that there is no system, vain gods, quests and other things that make me frown and close my browser tab. Thanks google translator, I hope the review is translated correctly.

It is a refreshing look to your typical transmigration novel which is exacly what I was looking for. The writing is solid and doesn't interfere with reading experience which I also appreciate. It is a captivating novel that so far has delivered and hopefully it will continue to do so in the future!

Great so far, the build up and execution is done .

Reviewed at: Chapter 11: The Werewolf

It's hard to give an indepth review with only 10 or so chapters but so far the scene's and interaction between the characters are simple but also seamless and natural, the story is flowing well and the mc's reaction to being a dragon also seems pretty good.

The build up around the dragons as a whole as well as the small teases to the world are also done well for the beginnings of the story. My only complaint would be that the chapters seem somewhat short but other than that everything is honestly pretty good and interesting.

I just hope the mc stays a dragon and doesn't eventually just turn to human form for most of the novel like some authors do for reasons I can't understand. (Though it doesn't feel like it with how the story is being written) I also cant wait for the mc to begin to explore the world and it's wonders like some forbidden places and great forests/mountains. I also hope like I said in the comments (chapter 10) that the mc will study and research different types of magic as well as meet and learn from the different races i.e elves, demons and so on.

Overall

A power fantasy not even good enough to be a guilty pleasure. Character starts as a strong race, strongest in his hatch, get stronger faster... no true struggle besides the cliche "close fight that the mc faints at the end of".

The chapters are super short for the sake of getting to trending which is a recipe for semi filler chapters to come and leaves less space for ideas that cant be summed up in less than 10 paragraphs.

Also by the 20th chapter the mc sees himself as a dragon and only has faint recollections of humanity... If the mc just hatched and everything is going to be explained to it, why make it isekai?

There are however some unique takes and a bit of trope diversion on some character which lend this story a purpose. (Edgy rival black dragon is suprisingly not just edgy rival dragon)

The title says it all.

Reviewed at: Chapter 21: Fight

It starts off like a 14 year old dnd nerds fantasy... then it kindof keeps going. If the title alone is enough to get you salivating might be worth reading, but if it's not I would give this one a pass. Characters are a bit nonexistent so far, each of the other characters are stereotypes. The only real draw seems to be it's a dragon. But if you care more for what a character is instead of who and you like dragons give it a shot.

Stillness
Overall

I've read the first chapter and from that I'm not going to read anymore. The begining of the story doesn't do anything to draw a reader in plot of character-wise, but I don't want to focus on that. 

The main issue is that the writing is clunky. It gets the job done, but there is no elegance or polish. A sure sign of an amateur author. This is a very fixable issue and will disappear with practice, but if your looking for a truly great story, I'd keep looking.
