Overall, I very much like this story. It has the charm of compelling ideas (Post-apoc, scifi and some fantasy elements. Though things lean to the 'can be explained as sufficiently advanced technology' so far) If I wrote each tech down seen so far, it'd be quite a long list, but they're used as elements to tell the story, not 'Here's a 500 word paragraph explaining a worldbuilding thing' Rather, they're used to enhance and flavour as spices should be.
Grammar: Excellent, no faults I've seen.
Ideas: S+ Things feel familiar, but fresh and compelling.
Storytelling: Competent third person past tense.
Give it a go, might be you'll like it too.
The setting and worldbuilding are interesting, the scenes flow easily, and the descriptions come as needed, without overly long expositions. All in all good style, it reads like a first draft of an author with previous writting experience.
The story itself however has its flaws i guess, it starts too fast paced, and we are just starting but you can smell the MC's plot armor a mile away, which is no fun, because it drains all the tension away.
Its just 14 chapters in, will see how it develops in the latter chapters.
