An honest review that I might be grading a bit harshly.
The quality of writing is pretty good with mostly proper grammar, consistent with it's tense and style of writing, as well as spelling. While the novel could use more attention to detail, whether it be in fights, inventions, or people. Overall I find no real problem with it. I am normally a very nitpicky person when it comes to the quality and style of writing. This novel generally has almost no mistakes if any. A style that's easy to read and understand. The more chapters I read, the more the writing improves. Keep up the good good work!
I have absolutely no idea when it comes to the stability of updating as I haven't been here for very long, so I've been scrolling through the comments in which absolutely no one complains about it. Maybe a few people asking for a mass release, but it's nothing big. From what I've observed, the stability of the updates are more than enough to satisfy your average or even hungry for more readers.
This may be too early for me especially since they've only recently returned from studying, however the Story Development isn't much from my perspective. I can foresee a lot of development in the future for them from where I am now but as for what I've read, it's not very satisfying. Not much has happened throughout what I've read all in all, but I'm expecting some very promising things from the foundation that has been and continues to be set up. The subtle foreshadowing throughout everything leaves the reader wanting more.
Now here's where I have a bone to pick. The character development, or lack thereof, drives me crazy. Argent has not been improving herself or even truly growing. We have not had moments in which she's wrong or even learns from her mistakes. Training in it's own doesn't count unless you make a point of it. Noting has truly grown into a part of her aside from her family and servants from beginning to chapter 60. The only thing that she has learned or gained is to love her family as well as learn from others. Which is honestly for her, a very grand improvement but I can't get past the fact the she hasn't grown otherwise. She may be a genius, but geniuses make mistakes and learn from them just as well as anyone else. I also have a bone to pick with her being indifferent at the beginning. Destroying to countries out of spite is NOT indifferent. That is all about her indifference. Aurum on the other hand, gets a big 5 stars for her character development. From and anxious and traumatized young girl, never knowing how to deal with people, into a Little White Flower. Aurum was able to exponentially improve her social interaction skills despite her lack of interest and trauma. Her life or death clinging to Argent has lessened or increased? Into a Bro-con for us readers.The only thing I have a problem with is the lack of expansion on her emotions and her healing process over time. Otherwise, Aurums Character Development was fantastic. Winter and Mishla: nothing. Nuff' said. Aurum really carried the team in this section.
World Dev? I'm a pretty terrible judge of that but I'm not satisfied by the lack of detail for it, I guess. From what I've read, the author doesn't really expand on it much. They probably will in the future, but it's honestly not to my liking. There's nothing wrong, it's just not fantastic to to me.
Overall, this is a really good read. Finally there's a female protagonist. 50 chapters in and there's really no sign of the ML which is normally a miracle. He'll pop up later though.
