I've read this story first on the HFY subreddit, and it was so captivating that I plowed through it all in one sitting. Prepare for an adventure if you start this story, because it will take you on a wild ride.
It's interesting how overpowered characters still have mundane issues, worries, and expectations. There are so many OP characters in this story, but at the same time, none of that overpoweredness leads to simple skips of things. Problems still exist, mud still sticks, people get just as annoyed.
It makes interpersonal clashes much more interesting where basically nation destroying entities just slug one out over a simple argument, where a simple grapple turns into landscape destroying altercations where the normality somehow shines through.
The way the dungeon develops, the bad puns flow on and even expand and the intricate Microphillic tendencies of the dungeon give it such a great personality. I can't wait what will happen when floor 42 is reached. I wonder if Fera will ever invent a gargle blaster to bash Ruli's head in with a lemon slice wrapped in a gold brick. The story keeps me wondering where it will dig, what it will unearth and how it will develop.
I recommend this as a solid read, but I do wish that the author would use something like Grammarly or just look at the red lines of the spell checker editor to fix the most glaring mistakes. It can pull one really out of a storey when the wrong word is used.
This story is an amazing survival story. Everytime you think the main characters can take it easy and enjoy there is a new thing that pops up and makes it hard, without even reaching god level proportions but still staying within the realm of "normal" without overpowered. Everything stays a challenge, interesting and there are deaths you really don't want to see. There are some twists I wouldn't have predicted.
I binged this for weeks to get through everything and it was worth it, I really lived along with the characters. It's really well written. It reminded me of the wheel of time series where characters don't reach OP levels within a few books either.
Refreshing, humour and heartbreak drama all wrapped up in one story. I'm exited on what will happen next.
I spent a full week reading this from start to finish, couldn't put it down. Didn't game or watch movies, just to know how the adventure would continue. It's been a very very long time since I've had an experience like that.
Definately would pay up to 30-40 euro's in a book store for it.
