It started nice but after leaving the ini area it's only downhill from there. A character passing out that much is not fun, it's not interesting it only gets more grating everytime. Her mentor is a hypocrite that treats the MC as a pet and never a person and this never gets addressed. Her mentor also doesn't care about MC's consent and keeps makeing this unstable girl angry because it's cute. Not to mention the negligence. Takes too long to explain why the racims and that got overused. After read the other novel I had hopes for this one.
I tried to stay up until the 31st chapter, but at this point it is too much for me.
If you like cannon Worm, this is the kinda thing you will like
The story seems to be one shitty thing happening to the Mc followed by another while trying to squeeze in just enough story progression so that, the Mc has something more to lose.
i tried, I really did, but at this point I can’t see myself reading this any longer unless there is a huge shift in the story focus from “let’s see all the ways we can ruin the Mc’s life”.
Feels weirdly like ABDL or DDLG fiction.
I tried to give the story a fair shake, though the plot stalled quite quickly. After 60 chapters, we haven't gotten to the point where the main lead has any agency for herself without the enabling or directive force of a foil. In fact, most of the descriptive load of this story has been spent on emphasizing what tribulations she's undergone trying to get to the first modicum of agency. The worldbuilding has been ok, though there are odd influences from alpha/beta/omega fiction that seem dissonant with the larger world. Some elements of the world seem to be inconsistent, enforcing the main characters helplessness for <redacted> reasons. For example, the racism and sexual elements faced by the main character are presented as overwhelmingly pervasive-- but characters sympathetic to the lead are, in essence, "pure" and untouched by these influences. There's no real gray morality to be found or subtlety here. Furthermore, even sympathetic characters sometimes sexually assault the lead, essentially forcing her into situations where the lead orgasms in front of the supporting cast without warning, which is... quite violating. "At least you got an orgasm [paraphrased]" is not justification.
I don't think I need to cover this much further. Characters tend to have stereotypical backstories, handwavey intentions. Archetypal villains abound. Wet blanket MC, swaddled by overprotective caregiver who also sometimes likes to play catgirl marionnette/blow-up doll. I haven't really sympathized or felt any sense of corporeality for them. It's too bad, considering the world the author built and the circumstances of the characters are very versatile, and promise to grow more interesting with a better execution. However, the elements that make these intrigues are handwaved away-- or are brought back to inconvenience the MC in a way as subtle as a C4 detonation.
Pretty good grammar, though some revision may be needed to correct structural elements in certain chapters. Some punctuation and adjective issues.
3rd-person omniscient is an ok style for this type, but it switches to limited 3rd person based off a viewpoint character. For the reader, it sometimes gets... confusing? unintuitive? slightly creepy? I get the feeling that I was sometimes meant to take a certain description in a positive or gray light, but I just get this unyielding distaste or recoil sometimes. Furthermore, there's an infodump issue.
It's ok if you want something dark, but the undertones just turned me off.
After 100 chapters, Evernya explains why this story is awful:
' “To me, the last few months have felt like years and I was sleeping for most of it,” Evernya commented.
"...I’ve just been unlucky so far..." Evernya commented.
...Evernya shivered, replaying her brief enslavement...
"...I shouldn’t have done lost control...." Evernya stated. '
At the end of chapter 100, like the end of most chapters, the main character, Evernya, descends into unconsciousness.
I wanted a fluffy catgirl story. Instead, the author fed me a steady diet of slavery, hate crimes, exploited vulnerability, and a lot of bad things.
I lowered my expectations and hoped for a weak to strong story, but the bad guys level up alongside the main character. The main character is a victim.
Evernya is like a Pokémon Magikarp. Even if she evolved into a stronger form, there are still humans hunting for her evolved form. 🙀
It could have been an amazing story, but it just turned into a "let's see how Evernya gets attacked/degraded/enslaved/raped this chapter" story. It's just become incredibly predictable that something bad will happen to her every chapter, and that you've forced her to act unnaturally in situations just to maximize the trauma caused to her every single chapter.
This story takes a cliche concept and runs with it. It explores what happens when someone wakes up in a new world, with a new body, unfamiliar surroundings and there's no help manuals or other people around to get your bearings with. The horrors of the unknown, both mundane and exotic are on full display in the first couple dozen chapters and it's great. I love it.
However after that it definitely reads like the author's first rodeo on putting a story into words and getting it out there. Which hey, everyone's gotta start somewhere. The biggest problem I see is that the writing mostly does one thing at a time. This slows down the pace of the story, throttles character development and means that most of the cool worldbuilding is delivered via infodumps. It also doesn't help the overall style of the story either.
Prose is fine and word choice is acceptable. There are a lot of chunky paragraphs that can be hard to read through, mostly in the narrative. Tone is flat and repetitive which is not good and either exacerbated by or a symptom of the mono-task writing. POV shifts are also not as clear as they could be and this muddies a few things, including the author's voice.
Spelling and grammar are mostly fine. There are a few cases of unnecessary repetition in things ('the design of the room was of more modern design...') so this reads like a quickly edited release.
Premise is great and the initial mystery/horror feel is good. But once the MC leaves their initial setting everything gets a bit boring. There's some good stuff in there but the pacing is like someone walking in snowshoes out of season. Slow and plodding and a bit awkward.
Character voice is a bit strong. Combined with the third person omniscient viewpoint I can't tell if this is a case of 'characters overpowering author's voice' or 'author's voice bleeding into characters.' Also while the characters have gained depth they haven't developed that much at all, another consequence of the slow writing style.
Overall I can recommend a look at the story but there's plenty of areas to improve in it.
It's honestly a very enjoyable story at the beginning. It only slowly starts to creep in that the author doesn't have any breaks on their "pick on the MC" train. This wouldn't be too much of an issue, except there is no variation in tone at any point. Any seeming interlude isn't nearly long enough to destress the story. And any seeming vindication is kicked down the road, being held off for some future point. If the author was willing to depart partially from their tone, they could add in small bits of vidication that don't actually make any change for the MC's circumstances while releasing some of the stress of the story.
The other main issue is with the villains in the story. While the MC and her caretaker are prefectly fine as characters, none of the villains seem to be intelligent. The shifter alpha is completely understandable, as it fits both as an early villain and their status/self. After that though, they come across as comically evil and imcompetent. Ch 35's introduced villain is particularly egregious. Considering how easy it would have been for him to hide a bit in the background and then come in as a false saviour, it comes across as arrogance to the point of stupidity. If you're going to have comically inept villains being in power due to pre-existing situations, it would've been super easy to add some variation by showing some of the comic ineptness, but they're treated fully serious, and it turns them into caricatures. Something as simple as hearing comments from his minions could easily add a bit of comic relief to vary the tone. A minor issue is that while the MC's caretaker is fine, the situations keep painting her as incompetent and it causes some minor dissonance.
On to the story. It's great. It has an interesting setting, the plot is coherent and seems to be moving at a solid pace, the world building is interesting, and there's lots of fun mysteries that are slowly being revealed. If you're fine with the tone, this story is fantastic. Hence, I heavily recommend trying it out, and only dropping it if the constant KO of the MC starts to bother you, as that is the most common evidence of the single tone for the first 25 chapters(10 KOs, not including her falling asleep naturally, which while used as a bit of a crutch isn't bad). The magic system hasn't eben fully revealed, but what we've learned so far is rather interesting, and the magitech is a fantastic stand out from most fantasy.
It's such a shame this story is so awful, it has a ton of potential to be great. The author seems like they should take some creative writing classes or something. The main character is just a passive punching bag that is unconscious for most of the story and is uninteresting. The other characters are extreme in their racism to the point where I can't see any mixed community at all, and all-out war constantly. Everyone contradicts their own rules and breaks their promises almost instantly, even with magically binding contracts in place. It is also unreasonable for almost everyone in a modern equivalent world to just attack someone, or even attempt murder and get away with it. The author has said that they use the knockouts as time skips but there are better ways, such as training sections or just a summary of the main character's day for that day. As far as the world goes it has a lot of potential even with different main characters and a different location in the world.
I hope in the future the author gains some skills and rewrites this story so it is more balanced and enjoyable, as this is one of the few story's that have a cat-girl as the main character.
The story lacks any meaningful plot so far. Like the other person said it has just been somone waking up in different spots for 10 chapters so far. The lack of interesting characterisation and worldbuilding is the final nail in the coffin.
It is not painful to read at least.
Wake up, minor exploration, navel gazing, deny reality, cry, scream, break things, faint, repeat.
There, now you've read the entirety of what this story offers. That's it. The only real variation is the number of repeats each chapter and the details of what specifically causes each fainting session.
Everything else is just descriptions and introspection from a protagonist that seems to go out of their way to act as ignorant of their situation as possible.
I'll give you 2.5 for not having grammar issues or typos.
