In the House of a Witch

As I said, it's a solid work. Nothing about it is super revolutionary, but it's enjoyable, with interesting characters that don't feel like cardboard cutouts, and decent world building, though there isn't much of it yet. I will say that the mc losing her focus on her surroundings is kinda annoying, though they are kept short, and I hope it is just a sign of her shock, and not something that lasts forever. A good read overall. 


Kernstalion

This story is set in a world that on first glance screams grimdark, but is actually quite light. I has many points with dark subjects, but it doesn't dwell on them long, and maintains a swift pace throughout.

Style: a standard litrpg set in a grim world, but still fast paced, as I said above.

Story: well thought-out and fast paced. Largely focused on progression, though the author has indicated that that will change soon.

Grammar: I have found no errors so far, a feat as I usually find at least a couple iffy words and such, but the structure seems to let my mind glide right over any problems.

Character: not the most deep and thought provoking characters I've ever seen, but they still have enough detail and uniqueness to standout.

As I said above, I'll keep this short. I just want to point out that while I understand where the plethora of negative reviews come from, with them finding a certain major arc unbearable, I do not find their arguments valid, as multiple times the author has pointed out where the difficult parts are, and has even given a way to bypass it entirely, and, given that you're reading this review, you are likely already well informed of the problems people have. the high average star rating speaks for itself. 


Black Sky

Another great work from Tsaimath

A great piece of work that has great characters, both realistic and fleshed out, and a unique environment to set them in. This story hits the ground running and continues to have a steady pace. Overall it's a great story, would definately recommend.


To Play With Magic

As the name indicates, the early chapters have been revised. Many of the early reviews complained about the attitude of the mc, but as I came through to read it later, I don't find any of the issues that were mentioned. In later chapters the author mentions that he has rewritten much of the early dialogue. Don't let the intro push you away, despite the generally immature tone it takes, the book itself doesn't fall into the trap of mental introspection, and manages to keep a good pace.  Overall this is a well written story, interesting and engaging, and definately something I recommend.


Awakening Chronicles -Hiatus pending rewrite-

As the name suggests, this is a story with a very strong focus on world building, somthing that compliments the genre very well. It goes very in depth with character creation, but doesn't add any unnecessary details, there is simply a great deal of characters to be built. The depth that the author goes to too create a unique world is astounding, and is definitely the highlight of the story.  As of 18.3 there hasn't been much exploration of the world it self, so if you are a reader that likes to jump right into the action, then this isn't the book for you. But if your like me, and love to see such depth, then get to reading! 

P.s. Too the author, if your game has a fraction of the amount of thought put into it as this book, then tell me where to sign up, `cause I definitely want that! And good luck with your endeavours!


He Who Fights With Monsters

This is a great story with a very strong character focus. The Mc has a very complex personality that drives this story and all his interactions. Some may find this character off putting but I find it quite refreshing compared to the cookie cutter mcs that plague the genre. It all sits in a bed of a well thought out and unique system, and a cast of rich background characters, both their stories and their growth. It is a bit slow in the case of the overarching goal, but it is still a great read I definitely recommend. 


THE SPACE LEGACY

Now I'll start by saying that I recently got a pm from the author saying that he liked one of my other reviews and that he had a story he'did like for me to read. Now, I was obviously expecting something nice but ultimately amateur, I was wrong. This starts with a well thought out intro, informative yet not an info-dump. This trend continues with characters with strong, individual personalities, and solid background. The system itself could use a bit of work, and some of the introductions were a bit shaky, but overall it is a worthwhile read, definitely something I recommend. This was written at chapter 14. 


The Misplaced Dungeon

I normally don't write reviews, but I couldn't sit back while such a good book is so underrated. Overall unlike other dungeon story's  on this site that focus more on creating a unique and difficult dungeon, and how it interacts with the world around it, this story treats the dungeon not as more of an organization, but as an individual. I believe this is the best and worst point of the story. Best because this gives it a unique atmosphere around the story world, and makes it stand out from its contemporaries. Worse because many who come to read this are expecting something entirely different from what was delivered. Just make sure that you go into this with an open mind. (To Author: Don't get discouraged by the low reviews!)
