Hi guys. I'm the author of Penance and here are just a few things I'd like to get out of the way: 1. There is a tragedy tag but there is no NTR! 2. There is violence but it will not be excessive. 3. The character in the cover is Demon Queen or Empress Alagarasi. She is the antagonist of the first volume of Penance. 4. The title means more than what some people may imagine. 5. Will it be a harem? There will be multiple romances but it won't be too excessive. 6. The overall feel of the story is going to be "helplessness" but at the end of the tunnel is hope so please do stick around for the end.


Great start, it amuses me the way the story is written and i cannot wait what is gonna happen next. i am going to stay tuned on this novel particularly since it already caught my attention


Great start! Looking forward to more. My favorite thing about this is that it's just the start but there is a certain feeling of dread that I just can't explain.


I've always been a fan of these sort of novels, ever since I started to read novels online. In a setting and situation that this story presents, I think tragedy and violence accompanies it greatly, and my theory is proven correct multiple times. There is potential for this story and I'm excited to see where it goes.


Interesting style of world-building. I see potential in this novel. A little trimming and polishing can make this a real goody. Hmnn, where can I help.. I humbly suggest controlling the pacing a little. Please introduce us to the characters more. As a reader, I want to know more about them especially the MC. It will also make this novel shine more. Keep it up. I'll save it in my library to binge later.


Defenetly an interesting story, both plot, and character-wise. From the few chapters that I have read I can say its a story worth giving a read to, and the writing itself is fantastic. best regards, author.


This story carries itself with a more serious tone than others. The events are darker, as well. But that is part of what makes this such a unique story. The writing style is very good; I did not notice any errors. I think having a sort of antihero type of character for an MC is very interesting, and helps captivate the reader. Good job author! Keep on writing!


Ok, I have to say I dig this story. It is only 4 chapters along, but I can see the potential if the author goes in the right direction. Characters are interesting, I like Arthur, I was always a fan of Anti-Heroish leads that are just trying to survive. You can see that he only sees himself as a weapon to kill the demons, not as a human being, but he needs warmth from the magician. I wonder what happened to Alagasari. Anyway, I like the story and keep it up, author!


Your story is not my cup of tea, but it is an interesting story. Your writing style is good and you know how to hook people. So people who like stories like this will enjoy it. I didn’t see any grammar mistakes, so good job. Keep up the good work!

The world is interesting. The characters are interesting, and so far, the plot's shaping up to be interesting as well. There are quite a few good descriptions here as well with unique character interactions.


ADDED TO LIBRARY! This is the story that I'm waiting for. Nice imagery and diction. It gives the exact picture that the chapter delineates. It's so short!! I want more! This is a masterpiece yall


We got a great story in the making here! the feeling of dreed it conveys is just amazing and the feeling that this will turn rather dark without giving us to much hints makes it even better! Good work Author!


Great story so far! as I read through the chapters you can really get a picture that the story is heading for a dark and miserable route. I can't wait for new chapters!


I LOVE IT. I saw this online on the artist's facebook page because someone commissioned a cover/character image for this book and I decided to check it out on a whim but dang is it good. I love it and I'm hooked. Signed up for this I'm glad I checked out Webnovel.
