Tian

Tian isn't a bad novel by any means, but it's not a particularly good one either. The plot is interesting enough, and I think the world building is turning out nicely.

But the characters feel flat, the whole experience ends up feeling plastic. Our MC is rather dull, not really showing much of a discernible personality. And the pacing feels.. Just a bit off to me?

Which is rather surprising! Especially considering the characterization is MelasD's other novels! It was like expecting to nom on a steak dinner and then finding out that you were actually eating slightly over cooked Ramen. Edible, but not very tasty. 

All in all, I give this novel a 4 stars. It's not bad, but not anything particularly good either. Well! If every porkchop was perfect we wouldn't have hot dogs! So keep on practicing, and have fun writing!


Big BOSS of the Game Industry

The idea behind it is interesting, and there's all kinds of creative things you can do with a game design system! Introducing modern games to a world with a weak market sounds like it could be a lot of fun, nevermind the potential in making your own games. But the execution is clunky, it reads like a badly translated light novel and it's hard to get a grasp on the characters because it's hard to read.


Elsewhere

Elsewhere has been an interesting concept so far- I've rather enjoyed seeing the two main character's talk and explore each other's cultures. Of course, I can't make any definite statements as I'm only on chapter seven. But if things keep going at the rate there going now then I think this'll be a great novel!


A fine octet of legs

Relatively unique, nothing groundbreaking- but it doesn't have to be. The MC is an Arachne who wakes up after what appears to be a post apocalyptic or world fusion event. The premise may not be the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it's good and the characterization plenty makes up for it. They all feel like more then cardboard cut outs and have a good dynamic.

The story style doesn't seem like it'll change too much, might be different if she integrates into some society. But if you don't like the first few chapters you probably won't like the rest 

 


Borne of Caution

A Pokémon fanfiction... That actually feels like a real story..... OMG- moar! I want MOAR! You have lit the fire within me and now I dEmAnD mOrE cHaPtErS tO cOnSuMe! But in all seriousness, this is a great story. One of the best I've read, it's shiny and I want more of it. The characters are multilayered and it's pretty realistic, loyal to the Pokémon lore. It's like a love letter to Pokémon wrapped up in that pretty Isekai bow we all know and love, I'll be waiting for more! I could go into more details.. But I'm lazy, and there's other reviews you can read for that.


Leaves of Terranthir

A guilded vessel, no matter how gleaming. Is useless without a center, this is a great story! But the protagonist is.. Not emotionless, but I can feel absolutely nothing. I can't relate, they feel like staring at a blank piece of paper instead of an actual character. Don't get me wrong, the protag expresses emotions. But they don't feel... Real, there're written down quite well. But it's just not there.

This Young Master is not Cannon Fodder

Standard. Common. Bland. Run of the mill. Overdone. Boring. Dull. Uninteresting. Average. This novel is nothing special, it's another Xianxia that takes itself to seriously and has less then stellar grammar, nothing special to show. If your into that kind of thing, or you've never read Xianxia before. You might enjoy it, but this is my 27th. It gets dull, fast. I do admit that I came into this with high expectations, maybe to high. It reminded me of Young Master Template, and that's setting the bar well above the masses of Xianxia. So I do apoligize, I didn't enjoy this. But maybe you will


Reboot Reality

A fantasy book that hits all the right buttons. I'm a bit lazy, so this reviews gonna be short. But so far this novel has been wonderful, exciting character s and an interesting setting. Heaps upon heaps of potential, and a system that isn't to intrusive. This is my kind of fantasy novel, and I'll be reading for as long as your posting.


Beneath the Dragoneye Moons

It's a good series, with a few glaring flaws. First off, as the other comments mention there is the issue of sexism, I don't mind things like that in stories. As long as there are good reasons for it. But there aren't, and secondly. The protagonist is ditsy, but she also recognizes her faults and works to improve herself! That more then makes up for it in my book. So.. This novel has several glaring flaws, only two of which I've mentioned. But it's quality and other characters more then make up for it
