I can take it! Nothing ventured, nothing gained. In hindsight, I've realized some of my past reviews were a little harsh on the rating scale as well. Be forewarned: Mine has "isekai" right in the subtitle.  DrakanLaugh

How much of a swap would you like to do? How many words, I mean?

Hey! I just gave your story a quick look over and started the first chapter. I'd be willing to read and review the whole thing in exchange for a similar review.

That said, my story is longer so I'd be satisfied if you just read up through Interlude 1: Home. If you're up to read more because you like it, I'd be keen to know your thoughts but all's good otherwise.


Here's a quick summary I whipped up. I'm on mobile so excuse any typos. The actual blurb is on the main page linked below.

Sins of the Father tells the story of the Father, an Aspect or being with power enough to claim star systems, as he recounts his tale to a young man named Maru hundreds of years after his rise to absolute power. The retelling starts in the far past when the Father first stumbles across Earth and quickly moves through the ages.

Genre: Light Cultivation, Mythological Fantasy, Soft Scifi

Howdy Raz,
I just read your first 5 and definitely found it an enjoyably good start. I left you a review and a favor returned would please me greatly. I don't think our writing styles are all that dissimilar, actually. Odds are you'll have opinions on my work, too.
Thanks for sharing your work and thanks in advance for giving mine a look. I've only got the one so far, but I intend for it to be a doozy. Link in sig

DrakanSweat I like that energy! I'll read yours all the way through, 1-9 then!

Many thanks! I'd greatly appreciate a full read-through and review. Because my word on this site is important to me, I'll commit to reading through Interlude 1: Home as you specified. But if I'm feeling up to it, I'll definitely read more! Your summary sounds interesting!

Cathal Wrote: I too would be up for a swap if my story seems like it would be something you might be interested in reading--link is in my sig!

I'm down! Your title and summary have piqued my interest--a very wintry vibe to go with the season where I am. Do you know about how many words your story is? I see it has 9 chapters so far. Just let me know your word count if you want to do an equivalent exchange, or the chapter where you'd like me to stop!

Wow, that was fast! Thanks very much! You're on my list for sure!

Hm, would you be interested in a romance between a cave-witch and a mouthy mercenary? He's prettier than Wade Wilson.

I'd be happy to swap with you, but feel free to wait until I post my review before posting mine. It always takes me forever and I'm going through a backlog of swaps to finish now. As always, I offer to send a detailed comment/review as a DM if the star rating is below 2.5 (or 3.5, whichever happens to be your preference). 

Let me know if you'd be okay with this, and feel free to refuse if you're not. =) 

Cheers, 
bokhi

Gladly! I'll add you to the list.

I'd love to add you to the list! And I'd prefer to set that 3.5 threshold, anything lower than that would be much appreciated in a DM. I can offer you the same courtesy. Thank you for the offer!

Golenishchev Wrote: Hello. Ready to do a review swap. Here is my story: https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/49340/guns-and-magic

If you don't mind, I would like you to read a little more than 10k words and finish on Chapter 2. Part 8. (that's about 15k words).

Tell me how many chapters I need to read to get a similar number of words and my co-author and I will read and leave a review!


Happy new year!

Hello, thank you for the offer! I'll add you to the queue. In my story, 15k would be through the end of Chapter 8. I will read through your Chapter 2 Part 8 as requested. Thanks again and Happy New Year as well!

Aniket-111 Wrote: Review on my Short Story '47 Years.' I also will release my novel soon, so could I get a review on that too as the short story is only 2k words. Thanks.
Hi, I'd be happy to do a couple reviews since the story is so short! How far into your novel would I read? Is it Armoured World or will you be posting a different one you want me to read? Just let me know the specifics of where to stop, if you want me to read about 8k of your novel as well. Or if you want to read more of mine and have me read more of yours, just let me know. Thanks!
