The Rocky Shore

I honestly hate POVs, I despise them, I hate when I find I nice story and everything is going well and bam, a pov that either disrupts my immersion, bores me out my mind or interrupts the flow of the story completely.

Luckily this story has none of these problem (despite having a lot of POVs).

It's really funny when you realize that the reason you hate something is just because you experienced a very bad representation of it, happens a lot with sushi I believe, a lot of places sell slimy not fresh sushi and it disrupts the opinion of a lot of sushi-virgins when they finally eat it (not saying you can't dislike raw fish, but disliking sushi and bad sushi are completely different things). This story knows how to do multiple points of view and it does it well, if you hate stories with multiple POVs like me, at least give this one a try, it didn't disappoint me, and I don't think it will disappoint you either. (This is a slow paced story though, if you want a 24/7 rollercoaster maybe this is not for you, but give it a try either way, you might be surprised)

The style of this story is quite slow paced, I believe it's a mix of the multiple points of view happening at the same time and the fact that this story takes it's time building the world around the characters, but just like any arm it does have two types of muscle fibers, and it's fast-twitch muscle fibers are not atrophied, the action scenes are tense and high stakes because nobody in this story has plot armor, they get hurt and a single mistake can be the end of their lives, it keeps you at the edge of your seat, and all the slow pace prior to this moment of tension? An inexorable buildup for the shit show that will happen when one of the characters step on the wrong tile. And some time to breathe after the action is gone and our protagonists take time to breathe.

The story itself is something that we have seen done a few of times here, but don't be mistaken that this is stale, I don't know if it's the style of writing, the fact that the characters feel alive or the world they find themselves in, The Rocky Shore honestly feels like a breath of fresh air, if you want to know more about the story, just read it, I don't do spoilers.

Impeccable grammar.

The characters are living and breathing beings, they are not cardboard cutouts or walking stereotypes with two lines, they feel like they exist and are distinct from eachother, I honestly don't think I need to say anything more than that.

Give this story a try, I'm honestly a little surprised it has such a small reach, it's one of the best stories I've ever read on this website (and I read quite a lot), reminds me a little of The Wandering Inn.


A Dearth of Choice (Dungeon Core)

Apostle of Sin

Don't let the cover deceive you, this is good.

Tldr: Not trash, well made and quite refreshing sometimes, try it, you might not like it but you won't regret it.

I will start by saying that I'm honestly surprised to be the first person to review this work, it is much better than most stories in this website, and quite well made. In truth it even has multiple points if view written in it that I absolutely despise most of the time because nobody seems to write them well, this author on the other hand managed to do a good job on them, not perfect, but certainly enjoyable.

 This is also a Litrpg (who would have thought) and a progression story with some powercreep, but it knows what it is and manages to avoid most pitfalls that the genre brings, it has an actual story that has no plotholes and very good worldbuilding (the strongest point of this story, really, with the different points of view bringing colour to the world around the characters), the characters feel like people instead of cardboard cutouts with the only problem I really found being some interactions between the system and the main characters personality (I HATE puppet main characters without autonomy, but this story subverts that by giving the main character a trait and well timed help that doesn't make him into a deranged meat puppet) but nothing deal breaking or immersion shattering. Honestly worth your time, try it at least 6 chapters before you drop.

Ps: I almost forgot the entire reason why I felt compelled to write a review, this really reminds me of "I am a spider so what?" The novel, not the manga or the anime (all three were made focusing in different areas so they are quite different, believe me) with the heroes, the exile and the different PoVs.

Pss: I honestly believe that the only reason this is not well known is because people see the cover and think it's trash, quite funny since a lot of stories have beautiful covers and horribly written stories.


The Snake Report

This is beautiful, all hail the little snake god, truly a masterpiece, a long tail filled with magic and wonder, it sates my thirst. Those pages filled with thoughts wrought in false ink and scales, and I yearn for more, and for more I shall pray, oh tiny snake god

This fetus sized novel (for now) shows promise

Made me smile, give it a try (specially if you are into witty main characters).
