Interesting premise, inconsistent personality

The story itself has an interesting plot, which i can see going and developing in several ways. The style of writing is good, with a third person view of the main protagonist allowing the author to put a significant amount of focus on other characters as well, giving readers a wide perspective of the environment and the MC’s interactions.


The grammar though, is horrid, but it is always an aspect that can be improved with a little effort and continuous writing. Or, the author could just get a PR. The thing that irks me the most though, is the main character. The author changes his personality as he sees fit, as long as it barely explains the Mc’s actions. For example, for an ex-hero who hates the kingdom and refuses to help, while it is arguable that he would help the kingdom for money, his attitude seems to take a sudden 180 degree turn when interacting with the new heros that he is supposedly going to train.


I hope that the author keeps his writing in check and makes sure there is some consistency in not only the MC’s personailty, but also any future key characters to come. A good way of doing so would be to plan out in detail what you would write, considering each character’s actions before actually putting it down in writing.



On a side note, here is my fiction, please do check it out.

Interesting idea but the grammar is terrible

It looks like it could be a good fiction but the grammar is terrible,since the idea is actually interesting i´ll give this 2 stars but this fiction needs a PR urgently if it´s going to be successful.

Looking forward to the story's progression

seems very interesting. the story makes a new twist on the classic "hero", and actually gives him a spine.  looking forward for more updates

It's a good story, has some nice characters and decent grammar. 

an while i do like the story quite a bit my only real issue with it would be the multiple non linear revisits of what happened in the past. while it adds some great details to the story it feels like there are so many of those moments that the story in the current time line seems to be left behind.

doesn't stop me from reading it though :)

hope to read more of it in the future
