Hi! I am a 1-star review!
Whether you like it or not, whether you believe it or not, I am the one and only correct review for this book.
How, you ask? Well, let me explain.
Writing Quality - 1/5
Writing quality deserves a 1/5. Yes, it is true that there are parallels and contradictions drawn between characters, pathos and such writing techniques used to enhance the appeal and creatively present the story, something almost no one else on this platform does. Heck, even the way dialogues are written serves a purpose greater than many realize. But still, it deserves a 1/5 star. You know why? Well, I don't know either so let's pretend like my rating makes total sense.
Stability of Updates - 1/5
The author hasn't missed an update ever. He always sticks to the schedule. Still, I am gonna give a 1/5 anyway. Why? Well, that is because ... because ... because ... let's move on!
Story Development - 1/5
Now the story is about a war between various supernatural factions. But, despite that, it focuses on the characters and their emotional, psychological and powerlogical (don't know the word for that but you know what I mean) journeys. It is a H A R D C O R E dark story. And, in spite of all that, I think it deserves a 1/5. Why? Hmm ... let me think about it for a while. In the mean time, let's move on.
Character Design - 1/5
Imma confused about wtf this even means. Do I have to give a rating based on how characters look (design) or on characterization and character development and stuff like that (different kinda design)?
Well, either way, 1/5 is the correct rating. You see, each character in the story is important, gets their own character arc that has varying degrees of philosophical value in them, and feels like someone who was created with heart and soul poured into it rather than to fulfill some fetish/fantasy/something else. They are all given a great deal of characterization and continuous character development, especially from a psychological perspective.
That all, and they all have nice, realistically dark and suitable appearances.
Wait a minute! Did I just explain why the character design deserves more than 1/5 star? W-w-well then, we are gonna pretend that never happened, okay? Okay.
World Background - 1/5
The world of the book seems to have a very rich and complicated history. The vibe for it is developed from the first chapter itself and remains throughout the story, only getting more and more captivating. The endless mysteries of the book serve the purpose of creating intrigue early on and with each mystery revealed, a new chapter is added to the world building/background.
So, I think it definitely deserves a 1/5 star. I mean, who wants to see this creative and engaging way of world-building? No one. This isn't how you should create a world.
There are so many great novels on this platform that do world creation right that this book should learn from. Like in those books, we want to see 17 paragraphs of info dumping that will lead us to the very amazing conclusion that is the same world as every other book of its power-fantasy ilk.
Yes, that is how you do the creation of the world.
Who does it like this? Ugh, it's nauseating. 1/5
So, now that I have explained with FACTS AND LOGIC how a 1/5 is the correct rating for this book, how I am the one and only accurate review for this book, I can only leave the rest up to you guys, the guys wasting their time reading this review instead of the damn book.
I hope you all are able to understand how factual this review is and realize that this book indeed deserves no more than a 1/5.
