Author Here: I hope everyone is enjoying my novel so far. After reading so my vrmmo novels I decided that I would like to give it a shot. I think you all will enjoy Xinya's adventures in Haven Online. =^-^= I will try to update frequently and although there will be some cliche's I will try to make them different enough so they seem sort of different. So please enjoy and keep reading.
I'm a heterosexual male, and I love this book. I am only saying this because some people will run away just because it says BL. I don't want them to miss out on the adventure that awaits.
Now I can give you my review.
Writing Quality: Four stars
The author has a clear grasp of the English language and knows what she is writing, unlike me. The only thing that stops it from getting five stars is some minor grammar errors: unintentional malapropisms, passive voice misuse, and some past-present tense mistakes. However, as I have stressed, they do not appear everywhere and won't stymie an enjoyable reading experience.
Stability of Updates: Five stars
The author does what she promised. She gives the readers(us) chapters every day. She even uploaded a double the next day when she skipped a day. I proudly give her a five here. She is reliable and I am more than content.
Story Development- 5 stars
Although there are some things left unclear: dad and stepmom related. I am sure this is the Authors intention and not that she forgot or is too lazy to write about it. I know, because the story itself is very clear and engaging. The pacing isn't too hot nor is it too cold, it's just right. In fact, when she uploads I drop what I am doing, I grab a packet of chips (crisps), sit back and enter the world, she so assiduously provides.
Character Design- 4 stars
I'm giving a four-star here, only because as of now, the only developed character is Xinya. Also, Xinya isn't your typical main character, and I like his character.
Moving on to the supporting cast, which in this case is the NPC's. The main character has only made one friend as of yet. This is not an issue, as I've said before, the pacing of the story is a beautiful experience.
Now with regards to the NPC's, I'm not so happy. The NPC's are supposedly lifelike, however, they felt programmed to me. Maybe, it is just because most of them are female (I'm not sexist, there's a reason I'm saying this. I can't tell you without spoiling the story). So far the only lifelike NPC I have encountered was at chapter 18. She asked proper questions and it wasn't a simple, "I need help, hey, you help me!" This does not happen in real life. When someone has a problem, we don't just broadcast it to the first person we see hoping that they will save us.
I've wanted to tell the author this for a while, but I was afraid she would work on those chapters and because of that not upload the next day. Yes, I know how selfish this is, but it's also a testament as to how much I am enjoying the story.
If the NPC's become more life-like or a personality enriched supporting cast member shows up, I will update this review. However, as of now, I am content with a four-star, on character design.
World Background- 5 stars
I'm giving this five stars. I don't need to explain why. I think I've gushed enough about how much I love this novel. If you are reading this stop. Instead, read this novel. Bless your eyes.
On a whim, I thought to try a new story while waiting for another to update. I really wanted a completed novel I could read slowly, bit by bit to satisfy my reading needs in the down times.
However, when I finally took a break from this story, I was already nearly 30 chapters in, and I just want to binge the rest now.
I find myself laughing and really enjoying all the little nuances the author added in. I will be back to update when I finish, which may just be tomorrow at this point. Seriously, I am weak to my literature-based desires and I foresee a sleepless night.
I really hope you continue the remake of this story soon, I've pretty much been hooked on this novel since I found it. I binge read all the chapters until I was caught up on them, then waited quite impatiently, for updates. Please don't end it completely?
dark of night and waxing moon
come to us a single pool
hear us sing our witches' song
and send us moonlight clear and strong
earth and water, wind and fire
one and all you must conspire
to banish bad for goodness sake
cos I need moonshine for my cake
weary travelers long ago
shared their bread and made a vow
that they will be forever friends
and so shall be until time ends
it's a very interesting and diferent VRMMORPG, the MC is a potion maker/battler like a Creator/Biochemistry from Ragnarok Online. But the autor are very against women in general, he really needs a psychiatrist. All characters are evil, like, really evil, trying to scheme everything, and the autor is not very good in math haha. The story talk about a rich guy that her stepmother tried to rape him and his father was schemed by her. Every character in this novel are like his stepmother, what makes the story very boring, but you can try. I'm still Reading cause the potion battler is really interesting for me
the story for me was unique, I just loved the characters, how they interact the roles they play. I know the author tried but, it's just heart breaking to know that I won't be able to continue reading it
This story is great! I haven't caught up to were the story is right now yet so I can't say anything about the regality of updates but the characters are lovable, the world is exiting and while there isn't really that much of a plot it keeps you entertained.
I really liked all the aspects of this storyline, i never got bored or hated any of the characters i think they are very well thought out. I will say that its going to be interesting to see a tweaked version of this story and i have faith in the author that it will be just as amazing !!!!! I cant wait to read it !!!!
I am genuinely hurt and decieved that you ended the Story. especially with such a cliffhanger. im sad to say that i loved this story of your but with how yOu left it and decid to redo the whole thing im sadly not going to be reading the new story of yours because im apready so invested in xinya from this story. If you actually cared about your readers than you would finish and keep this story going but you aren’t so you dont. good luck but you have lost a reader for not finishing the story that has had me hooked
I have really enjoyed this story. It really draws the reader in to sympathize with the characters. I also liked the pacing of the story as well. I am dissappointed that it will never be finished but I support the authors decision to try to perfect their craft.
i really love this book i wish you can continue this story thank you for the wonderful adventure you've given us it really was inspiring and fun reading this book hope to see you again. thanks so much. ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡
The MC is likeable and doesn‘t feel overpowered. Even when beeing reborn his goal isn‘t worlddomination and he doesn‘t know every detail wich will happen.
he tries to take care of good friends and makes new ones.
The love is slow paced and even though nothing happend till now i‘m sure it would be an amazong couple!
Sadly this novel Is beeing dropped, but i do hope it will be picked up again. I will wait for this day!
There's some minor grammar mistakes here and there, I notice one that was actually the character's name, but that doesn't distract me from enjoying such a brilliant thought out storyline.
I really love the details it has brought in to develop such a world... and quite the good balance between character development and adventure... also a good balance between Sadness and Joy (Inside Out) throughout it as well.
Can't wait for the farm to get started.
Hope you update soon.
I highly like slice of life stories since its interesting to me and the pace helps me relax at the end of a busy day. I also dont write reviews often, but this book has everything I’m looking for and i can’t wait for more updates. Its an added bonus that its bl, too. I wonder how long this book will go, honestly it wouldn’t surprise me if it reached 1000 chapters. There’s enough world material and hints of conflicts coming up later that i’m excited for, especially the face slapping for the women that keeps following them. I also have a feeling that everyone is able to meet in the real world eventually and takes revenge on the mc’s stepmother for him or at least i hope it happens. i like it when they’re angry for him because they somehow always say what i want to say to tell other people off. The part i’m most excited for is the slow building of the farm and added adventures that follow, which is where we’re at right now. I wish i was able to binge read it because i love that arc the most in other slice of life books, too. Highly reccommend if you like this sort of stuff. i’m also blown away that it’s an original because it has the feel of other good translated slice of life novels. If theres one thing i could critque, when mc can’t remember hints or details of the game he previous played or hints being overlooked, i think is a little overplayed with the way it’s written at this point of the story. But, i’m sure when the game deviates from what he remembers it’ll go away. I know its normal to overlook and forget stuff, but i’m not saying to change the mc so he can remember everything. i just mean be a little more creative, don’t change the wind of luck though. i like that its a reliable constant in the game. sorry for rambling and thank you to the author who’s working so hard to build this story more. im looking forward to reading more! Fighting :)
