User: What's a "transmigration"?
System: I believe it's another term for "world hopping".
User: Oh.... but I'm not world hopping, I'm fixing timelines?
System: The author thought this sounded better.
User: Eh well, they're the author so...wait, who do you love?
User: The title says, "With Love", so who do you love?
System: Ha. Ha. Ha. The author thinks they are witty.
User: So you don't love anyone?
System: This system is programmed to work.
User: That's not answering my question.
System: ...User, about the next mission...
Felicia died and somehow got selected for a job fixing dimensional errors. Helping her complete her tasks is a strange machine-like being called DARS. Follow her as she makes her way through 10 different dimensions and slowly discovers the real reason behind her "selection".

I am 4 chapters into the second 'story' that is contained with in this book. The first one was really quite amazing and my first reaction was to be surprised it wasn't on the rising stars list.
I'm going to start on the character score, I gave a 4.5 out of 5 because the characters feel real and you connect to them quickly, but the story set in each timeline doesn't last long enough to connect to a character like you would in a different style of book.
For grammar I gave a 4.5 out of 5 as well, there are a few spots I have noticed that would need to be cleaned up in a final edit, but there is nothing that makes the book difficult to read.
Story score I gave a 5, I'm just basing this off of the first time line that our MC was in, and with out giving spoilers, the story in the time line was compelling and felt different to most other books I read on this platform. It is still too early to make a call about the over arching story but I have high hopes for it as I have already noticed a few things being foreshadowed.
This brings us to style which I gave a 5 out of 5. It is similar to "The Many Lives of Cadence Lee" in that the main character is going to be experiencing many worlds and lives. It differs in the starting point for those lives. It seems like it can be read as a collection of short stories, with a main character that brings their same personality to the way the character in each of the short stories acts.
Over all the story has one of the better starts I've seen, and I expect that it will be well worth reading. Even if you don't get to connect to a single world or cast as you would in other stories.
The overarching plot is similar to "The Many Lives of Cadence Lee". The MC lives multiple unconnected lives. This is great for the author who wants to write many different plots and worlds, but can feel a little hollow for the reader.
I binged through level 1, but didn't feel like continuing on with level 2. Its hard to stay connected when each level feels like a completely different book with different characters and worlds. I don't want to start level 2, because it feels like I'm throwing away the level 1 world. Like none of it matters except for the very little she "gains" between worlds.
Despite the overarching style/story, I really like what the author has done. I'm already going into the author's profile and finding one of their other works to read.
It feels strange to suggest, but I hope the author's next story is less unique. All the top stories on royalroad right now have a single main character progressing through a single "world".
(Mother of Learning, Beware of Chicken, Paranoid Mage, The Perfect Run, Super Minion, The Last Orellen, A Journey of Black and Red, The Calamitous Bob, Borne of Caution, Vainqueur the Dragon, The Essence of Cultivation, Millenial Mage, Valkyrie's Shadow, Azarinth Healer...)
The list goes on and on. Perhaps it feels derivative, but I'd be excited for a typical "isekai progression fantasy" from the author. Maybe its "selling out", but I think Queenofthefuzzybugs is a good enough writer to be on the front page if they're willing to write a slightly cliche (but popular) story.
Lastly, I'd throw out the "comedy" tag. Its probably personal preference, but I've found very few legitimately funny stories on RR. I usually filter out stories that have the comedy tag. I think authors throw it in there because they are afraid to write a "serious" story or think they aren't good enough to do so.
This author is good enough to write a "serious" story. Ditch the comedy, I think its holding you back.
Im not one for indepth review and im not gonna start now.
If you want to over look this story because of not enough reviews, dont. Quality is better than quantity. And me and the other two people down here stand by this gem😤
MC is sensible; she knows what she needs to do n gets them done. And you will laugh n love her the whole way through
there is also an overarching story thats slowly unfolding along side each world hop. So dont feel discouraged, she learns n grows each life. And im excited about where were headed!
The writing style is my favourite. Stakes get high when they should. Mc actions have consequences when approriate and good things happen when she works for it.
Also, can i just say, the author did a wonderful job on the interpersonal relationship aspect of this story. The MC is at heart someone who knows how to create bonds with people. And there are other things to love about this story to keep you on its toes, but this characteristic about her is why the story is so good!
In conclusion, someone direct me to the nearest patron! I have disposible income to burn!😌
Maybe it's because I haven't read a QT type story in a longtime but this story absolutely rocked. Felicia as a main character is a great creation in itself. A realistic and mostly mature character when she should be and still has her flaws as far as I've seen. The author integrates their character into the story well and the writing style is nice enough to be comfortably read.
The 1st arc was a great introduction to the story with good explanations here and there. Didn't notice anything wrong with the grammar so that's a win.
Can't wait for the hiatus to end so I can keep following along in this journey.
If anyone else knows of The Many Lives of Cadence Lee, then this is somewhat similar to that, but even better. If that doesn't mean anything to you, it means this is utterly brilliant. The story(ies) are great, the characters relatable, and the grammar flawless. I love how the author actually discusses philosophical issues in the midst of the story, showing a self-awareness not present in other transmigration stories, but which might be expected of a person placed into such a strange situation. I also love how she doesn't stereotype personalities, religion, or anything else. There isn't much romance yet at this point, but it is helping the author dwell on the importance and value of other forms of love in the meanwhile, and I fully expect it to eventually appear as the protagonist goes through subsequent lives.
If I had to choose one flaw, there is something very slightly off about the style, which I can't quite put my finger on, though it is still brilliant. It may just be on account of how the protagonist is unnaturally distant in her interactions with family, on account of being a transmigrator. Overall, I heartily recommend this work, and look forward to the chapters to come.
