VIEWPOINT-BLOOM

I've read until ch 16 when I decided that this is too good to be left without a review.

While reading the first chapter you might assume that the accident will lock the protagonist in a game, like many VRMMO works chose to do. But then, and in the following chapters, it showed that the authors has their own vision of the story that goes beyond a cookie cutter work of the same genre.

But, given that protag circumstances, the first story arc is dedicated to laying the foundation of protagonist and her interactions with others. It might seem quite slow to some.

On the other hand, that foundation connects you to her character, and improve the emotional highs and lows of future conflicts. Which is needed, given that VRMMO player characters usually can respawn.


Burning Stars, Falling Skies

Interesting execution of a fascinating science fiction idea.

Style and grammar

Well, I'm not sure I'm good enough to offer a critique that would be deeper than just
*I didn't have any problems with it*.
Although I did want to edit the story to fit my taste in several places.

Story and character

This story is up my alley, as I like science fiction that has a core idea to model a world around and then show its life to the readers.
In this case it's about an inhuman race inheriting the memories of humans and, through them, inheriting their civilisation. And eventually rising up to avenge the humanity.

The idea itself is not new, as I've seen it done in classic sci fi literature, but its execution of the idea is good enough to stand on its own as an original work. I've read through and most likely I'll continue reading.



Magnus

Rather interesting.

The protagonist reminded me of games Deus Ex:HR and Messiah of Might&Magic. The former's detached cybernetic veteran and latter's peculiar way of one shotting the humanoid enemies. No, not the kicking, that one requires convenient spikes.
Add in a human's regular reaction to a first contact with a foreign world that has an inhuman civilisation and first 15 chapters, that I've read before writing a review, were a fun ride.


The PoV changes could be a bit jarring when the native's PoV portraits them as normal and the protag as foreign and then switches to the human PoV that shows an 180 degree.

But it adds to clear difference between the two sides and gives them a distance that they would probably cross to learn to understand and help each other. And that journey is the reason I ,most likely, will return to binge read more.


As for technical side, I didn't notice any problems with grammar. There were no problems with formatting or readability either, as even though there are ways to improve my experience, they are not guaranteed to work for others.
