What Others Say
This novel is an example of what an author could achieve with proper brainstorming. Every turn in the plot is justified and written with forethought; the characters felt organic and are integrated well into the story. Even for the most nondescript character, you get a sense that they have a story to tell. Antagonists aren't just power-tripping muscle heads--there's no real villain in the traditional sense of the word. The action scenes aren't repetitive or gratuitous but progressed the story forward in a meaningful way. Get your fill of mindless action elsewhere and read this novel for a genuinely good story.
Characters are amazingly well done, you actually feel like they are real people with their own problems and wishes and they get their own spotlight and growth, rather than being sidekick No.1 and sidekick No.2. Even "villains" have their own motivations and hopes. I put the term in "" because they are not even evil, their ideology and actions just clashed with MC so they are the "villains" of the story. The story starts as classic MC with mysterious background gets old grandpa cheat, but quickly becomes so much more. There is a twist on every trope. You want this "grandpa" to give you a cheat? How about I rob you blind and give you useless junk as a reward and more similar cases. The world is fleshed out, we get insight into every faction and how they operate. It really feels like an actual world and not big evil sect 1, 2, 3, 4 that only is there to be MC's climbing stone.
