Putting something new to the table

First of all, the story presented a unique idea splendidly. Not only did it use blindness, a sensitive topic that can easily go wrong, as its core premise, it did so without romanticizing it. Rather than centering the drama about Chitra being blind, it's been treated as another trait. Something as trivial as her father being a spendthrift, and that's a huge plus in my book.

In terms of style and grammar, the scenese were presented in a very vivid and easy to imagine manner. There's really little to say to this. It's a very well written piece with little to no mistakes.

Again, the story doesn't follow the typical LitRPG path of action and bloodbath. Don't get me wrong. The story doesn't lack any action. It's just that it feels like the action is more like additional topping to an already scrumptious cake. 

Finally, Chitra, our headstrong and reckless to the point of stupidity princess. I've already said what's to be said about her being blind, so I'll skip on that. She was a girl with a good head on her shoulders, at least during most times. After she gained vision, however, she seemed to be making one reckless/stupid decision. I do get that she's not accustomed to sight yet, but it still feels like she makes a tad of dumb choices at times. 


A Bride in Diyu

The author has a great style of vividly showing the story. It was very descriptive giving us a clear and distinct imagery of what was happening in the story. 

The story is still setting off, so there's little to say plotwise. As of the moment of writing, the plot is yet to develop. That said, our main character is still quite naive and stubborn, thus the score. Nevertheless, I hope to see her character development as the story progress.

As the title suggests, the story includes Chinese mythology, so expect Chinese mythology jargons. Although a quick Google search is enough to fill that.

The grammar is almost perfect, which gives us a great, smooth read.


Generally, it's off to a good start, and I can't wait for more.


Phantom Ddraig

The protagonists story was told in a way a bard would tell his teales. Well, minus the singing. 

Although there are a lot of characters, which there should rightfully be given the context, each has its own distinct personality. And despite the story's relatively quick pace, it's just fast enough to keep me on the edge. Definitely a fantasy story worth reading.
