I will explain each category and why I rated things the way I did. I should note that I didn’t read everything. Of over 200 chapters (which is impressive), I read about 10.
Well, I could read it. I hate to give such a low rating here, because everything else about this book is good, but it was very hard to understand what the author was trying to say. For the most part I was able to figure it out, but the grammar, spelling, typos, etc were numerous and everywhere. I suggest proof reading and taking care to clean up the writing you have. It is a really good story that is marred by writing that is hard to decipher. 1/5.
Stability of Updating:
This category seems useless, in my opinion, but the author writes and updates frequently. 5/5.
The story moves at a good pace. I love that it is organized with a prologue that hints at the main plot, each backstory first, then the characters all together for the main plot. There were some holes in the plot, such as characters that were introduced in the prologue and then didn’t seem to age over the 100 years until the story starts, but over all the story is fantastic! 4/5.
Once again, the author did a good job here. The characters are all distinct and different. They each have their own chapter to give their background and why they are even in the party (why don’t more people do this is long novels with a ton of characters? It made it possible to remember who the characters were despite having a lot of them). One note, where the author lost a point from me, is that it seems like more love was given to the background stories and worlds than the characters themselves. This could change as the story goes on, but initially the back stores are more about the worlds they come from than the specifics of the characters. Still, I got the jist of what each character was supposed to be like or represent/do in the party. 4/5.
Yeah. This is a 5/5. The author didn’t create a world. He created something like 7 vivid worlds that each had their own culture, lore, races, histories, etc. even if everything wasn’t explained the the reader, enough was implied that the worlds all felt real. I believe that the author spent a lot of time thinking about these different places and described them well.
Overall, this is a good idea and a good start. You wrote a lot and have created a fantastic world to play with. I would just take some time to make sure you are conveying that world with out typos, misspelling, etc ruining the readers view. This was like looking at a beautiful landscape through a dirty window. Fortunately, it should be relatively easy to fix with proofreading.
