Synopsis

-- Reborn into a dying world. Forced to fight an impossible fight --

Middle-aged, overweight, and alcoholic; an insurance salesman dies surrounded by strangers beneath the cold emblem of his company.

Beyond the darkness of death, the man awakens in a cabin deep in the woods. His body is young and spritely. His voice is bright. Impossibly, he is young again in the body of a sixteen-year-old boy.

Given a second chance in a strange, new world, he resolves to give this life his all.

But annihilation lies just over the horizon. Can this world be saved, or will its people and land be consumed by an insatiable, and eternal hunger?

The Good: My first 5 star review, so you are getting a 5 critique. Wow, it's been a long time since I've read such a well written book! The story itself is intriguing and is slowly fed to the reader so as to neither overload nor starve the reader for more. Enough character details are given that we can draw a decent conclusion about who they are without resorting to the most common character tropes. The few flaws I noticed in the first chapter were already taken care of by the fourth so the author appears to be progressing well. The Bad: Really really hard to find fault anywhere... if I HAD to pick a few things, I would say use easier words sometimes since many readers here are ESL. I know we're supposed to write for who we want to read it, but I've found it better to write for who actually is reading it. I really hope that makes sense. If I HAD to pick something else apart, I'd say it feels like much more effort was put into the first 3 chapters than the last 5. That's not really a bad thing though because more effort isn't always a good thing as you probably know. Once the inspiration starts flowing, you just let it flow and worry about fixing it up after. (Or at least that is how I do it.) The Neutral: I know I call this part "The Neutral", but I should change it to "My personal thoughts that really don't affect how I rate". You're right, "The Neutral" is easier to type. Your style improved subtly from chapter 1 to chapter 8. I would have to say that you, the author, came across as arrogant in the early chapters, but later toned it down to the perfect level to match what this story needs. I would hazard a guess and say you are well-educated with at least a background in liberal arts. Regardless, keep up the good work and I look forward to more!

This author was an expert at detailed descriptions! The novel turned out to be a good read! With the flow like smooth silk and pleasant to my ears. This doesn't reveal everything to the world and it made it mysteriously wanting you to know more! Great job author!

There isn't much for me to comment on right now, but the book is intriguing. The main character isn't an OP character with a strong will and wanting to conquer the world, but someone who makes a logical choice. Keep up the good work. :D

Wow - So soon into this story and I feel like I'm reading something really special. The author has done an exceptional job in every area so far. Here's my thoughts. Writing quality - Wow. The readability of this story is great. The writer really seems to know what they're doing with the story and comes across across as thoughtful. The story feels well fleshed out even though it's just begun. Stability of updates - Couldn't ask for anything more than the clear consistency so far. Story development - This is my favourite area right now and deserves a 6/5 imo. The story pacing is natural and not forced at all. Great job. Character designs - yesssssssss. That's all I can say. World background - hell to the yea. I'm curious of where this is going to go next and what the heck is going on with this time lapse of ages. There is a lot going on and it is overall a very recommendable and worthy read. I look forward to keeping this up and seeing where it goes. Hopefully goes well. Best of luck to you, Author.

If this kind of start for a story could not be considered great yet, I don't know what else. Both the characters and the world setting are interesting. The only down point of this one, it that it only has a few chapters and I simply could not good enough. I'll keep supporting you, author. More power to you and your book!

Writing quality, nothing can be said about that as the story is very well-described. The characters and their emotions are depicted in an immersive manner that colors this story with life. It looks like the story will bring the MC into a long journey with devils and monsters as adversaries. It seems a great plot will follow this grand adventure. The concept of flow sigils is also really interesting. I really want to know more about this fascinating idea of the author. Though nothing is detailed yet about the world, I can't wait to know how the author will unfold this new exciting world. Great job!

What an awesome story filled with poetic sense. The author had a great job providing the readers of the the detailed descriptions of the main character's emotions. Each chapter breathes life and helps the reader immersed in the story. Do keep writing as this story has potential. I hope you win WPC 162!

This has a very interesting world that I can see develop into something big. The usage of short syntax was a bit too often in the first chapter but it did succeed in building the suspense. Other than that it's fabulous, can't wait for future updates!

This is a great, fast-moving story. The adventure starts at full-throttle and never lets go. I loved being in the dark along with the main character as to where he is, what has happened, etc. I can't wait to find out where this story goes!

The only thing I can say is... Amazing! What a story! The first chapter was such an amazing start, it was incredible. I fell in love with the way you are describing everything and the way you keep us in touch with the protagonist's emotions, it's almost like a rollercoaster. The following chapters only got better and better. Can't wait to read more! Good job!

Wow wow wow! The writing in this book is beautiful! Poetic, chilling, emotive, even grueling at times! Its not often when reading a book I feel so engaged and immersed in such wonderful description! I love how the characters are written, and how the author has the ability to make me feel so passionately about some of them (I absolutely despise the lord) Truly fantastic work. Great writing, great plot- I could not ask for more!

I think, personally, it's more of a mystery than a fantasy (Although there are very fantasy...like things in it). I really liked it and everything flowed nicely. I personally think that the usage of the First PoV (idk how to say it) worked really well in this scenario and it was easy to make sense of everything. It sounds like those old RLS (Robert Louis Stevenson, I searched up RLS and got restless leg syndrome O.o) novels with all the harbours and stuff. I thought at first, this was sort of like a poe thing, but then it sort of just gradually changed to RLS. The description was also really detailed and I really really liked the idea of the channeling rod (I thought TV remote when I read it at first tbh). There was only one thing that I wasn't too sure of and it was that the quotations weren't really consistent (or it's a grammar rule I don't know about). Sometimes there would be this... idk... a comma then a colon then a comma then a colon and I would just go... ?. It didn't really interfere with reading it so I didn't really care about it much. (I was just wondering if it's okay to have a sentence like: "I like cats, " said Raisins. He ate a couple of raisins. "Hey!" because I'm not totally sure.) The only thing that I thought I should mention that was completely personal was the switch between third and first PoV. The three dots helped a lot with knowing when it was going to happen and I could tell that it was (usually) only used to foreshadow or explain some event that the MC couldn't have known about.
