I've really enjoyed the story so far.
The blurb is spot on and you pretty much get what you expect off the back of it!
I think this is one of the areas the author does very well. By the time I was halfway through ch1, I had a pretty good grasp of the type of people the protagonist and his twin sister are. Their personalities come through nicely - particularly during conversations with each other. They come across as realistic, fleshed out individuals, which is nice :)
I haven't been able to spot any mistakes so far - so that leaves me no option other than giving full stars here.
The author has clearly put time and effort into creating the world the story takes place in. It is reasonably fast paced, with lots of action already (reviewing at ch3) but not at the cost of making the whole thing shallow. Everything so far has made sense, from the interactions between people to the way magic was introduced!
I really enjoy the authors writing style. It is smooth to read and makes sense. Interactions are vivid and engaging. Enough said.
So far, the story is both entertaining and engaging, it has made me laugh a number of times. There clearly has been quite a lot of thought thats's gone into the planning of this work.
The writing flows smoothly, and is quite fast paced, without feeling rushed in the slightest.
There are quite a few people and a lot of action happening right at the start (I am terrible at remembering names) and some latin words and history in the mix.
Against all expectations this does not distract from the story (I was initially a bit hesitant to read this book for this reason). But rather, it is written in a way that is quite amusing and easy to understand without being patronising or preachy. It quite successfully draws the reader in.
The writing is smooth, and funny. The author has a distinct, humorous style, that you'll recognise in the story, author's notes and comments. I love the consistency. He uses expressive language, the scenes are set just right, vivid without being too descriptive or giving the impression that he is trying too hard.
It draws you in, I want to know what happens next and will continue reading the story. Some of the actions are a bit random or abrupt, but I believe that is due to the DnD inspiration and absolutely true to the genre.
The grammar is pretty much spot on. A few mistakes here and there, but nothing that would stop me from reading. The author also corrects anything that's pointed out to him, so I expect the few mistakes to be disappearing soon.
Each character has a clear personality, that's apparent by the way they talk and interact. I think this is one of the main things I like about the writing, even if you only meet a character for a short while, they seem authentic and thought out.
