    Sebastian is a male nurse that has seen it all - from powerful, elite-tiered political patients to broken, forgotten scraps of humanity. When his last area of exposure goes awry, he ends up fatally wounded. Forcefully reborn into an alternate dimension which had always been closely intertwined with Earth, he is now faced with a new world to learn and grow again. How will his previous nursing skills fare in a world with magic and fantasy monsters? *Updated weekly

Thank you. I did want to take my time (when I was writing this part) to explain the world and what he had become. I slowly explained regarding what he had become in the upcoming chapters. (maybe too slow for other people) View More

veronicapurcell3: Nice start. The writing is pretty solid and compelling to draw my read down the page. I liked I slowly learned of Sebastian and his new world in gradual descriptions. Even though he has been somewhat transmigrated into a new body and world, there is still an end-hook to go to the next chapter. I was kind of scratching my head as to why he was given an easy explanation on what he now is. Guess that can be a foreboding for things to come.
Cool chapter. Keep writing. :)

I wanted it to show that this world relies on magick a lot instead of machines. Hopefully it will be explained later on why they don't have much in the way of technology. View More

I do feel that I should have used key words or phrases for each character. It would have made things clearer. I'll put more dialogue tags in the future. Thanks for the feedback! View More

StenDuring: Gah! Please use more dialogue tags! I'm guilty of this myself. In MY head I know who's saying what, because I wrote my own story, but, well...

Still a good read. A ** in your direction as a consolation prize :D

I agree to an extent regarding the tropes and what makes a novel popular. I remember when I took a writing course, one of the first questions they asked was to determine if you are writing for money or for hobby.

No matter what genre or setting you write your novel in, it will always be affected if you want free reign over it, or if you are looking for a wider fan base.

I also agree about overpowered MCs that can't seem to fail. I've dropped so many novels (and wasted so much time) simply because I can already tell that everyone lives and the ending is a happy one. This is why I've taken so much time developing characters and creating their personalities. I don't want characters that are simply horny or are there just to provide comic relief.

For this novel I am simply writing an idea I've had for years, while adding to my beat sheet along the way. It's a very interesting experience from someone who has only written short stories here and there.

I don't mind the lengthy reply, in fact I do welcome it. I simply needed a cup of warm coffee before I can answer with sense. Thanks! View More

savetheprincess: I don't think clichés itself are making those novels more popular, but there is something in those clichés that some people want to see. One of those things is a strong main character, for example.

Fantasy in general can be used for a variety of things, it is one of the most flexible genres, so to speak. While Lord of the Rings can throw the reader into a world full of fear and hardships to overcome it, there is also no other genre so frequently used for escape and power fantasies.
Which leads us to the point of strong main characters, who are there to deal with those worlds full of fear.
The point of power fantasies tho, isn't to feel the same amount of fear everyone in middle earth is experiencing, right ?
That's why most of the big novels have ridiculously overpowered main characters, which in turn, decreases the general ******* by a lot. Up to a point where i sometimes can't find any, i might add.
Like everything else in life, its a question of balance. Your main character isn't supposed to let all obvious opportunities pass him by and basically forfeit the land to the evil demon lord, but as i said, making it all too easy for him kills any kind of *******.
And the amount of fear and ******* people want to see varies, of course.

Still what the novels at the top are doing seems to work, measured by views and imaginary stones we use to show our appreciation for novels here, right ?
Does that mean you should try to do something similar, catering to the bigger audience, so to speak ?
Not an easy question, and i don't think you can draw a line anywhere as to where to optimal balance between catering to an audience and realizing your own creative vision is.
As a rule of thumb tho, i would always rather follow your own agenda, since it is simply more reliable and more easy to draw conclusions from.
Which means, if you're still trying to learn the trade, stick to your own stuff. You don't need to write the next big hit right away. Do it to improve your craft, that's better for the long run.

hope my lengthy reply didn't scare you.
It's just that i have rather strong opinions about power fantasies and clichés in novels, since i have had more than my share of them.
(Hope my lengthy reply didn't scare you.)
probably should have cut some stuff out, but oh well.

Thank you for the review! That was very well-said. I do take great efforts to avoid clichés and pitfalls, but I think they boost popularity as well (if we base it off the most popular novels on this site). View More

savetheprincess: (this review is based on ch. 15, but since that's all for now, i decided to share my thoughts about the world, the characters and the writing style in general.)

While the premise and even the world itself so far are pretty generic, with the only exception being the MC's occupation as a nurse / field medic type of thing, it is implemented beautifully through superb writing and very human character designs.
Or worded differently : it manages to avoid nearly all the pitfalls most novels of this genre are usually falling into.
The main character isn't a horny teenager that somehow manages to get really strong right from the get go, he's not dark and brooding, not looking for revenge.
Neither he nor the people around him are one-dimensional, everyone has different sides to them, and most importantly, everyone tries to understand each other in a very relatable, and very realistic kind of way.

Therefore i am really looking forward to more chapters, hoping to have found a nice, human and relatable story set in another world, instead of the usual clichés everyone in this genre has come to expect.

The author's style of narrating is really unique. It almost threw me off at the start. It is unique and refreshing though.

The world is very rich and diverse, it doesn't feel rushed or bland. The number of races itself already make things interesting.

For the characters, I feel like there are some points that were skipped over in the beginning chapters. This does improve later on when the story develops as well. View More

The story was a bit overwhelming the first few chapters, but once you get used to it, it becomes easier to understand.
There are few grammar errors and some awkward word choices, but none that distract you too much from the story.
The story pacing is really well done - I could even learn a few pointers from it. It's very engaging and keeps your interest all throughout.

Overall it's like a combination of a wuxia novel (the cultivation levels) with anime characters in it. A great read, one that I'll be keeping in my library. View More

Thank you! I do take time to write the details, so it might make the flow a bit slower than usual.

Also you actually noticed the cover. Ahaha. I did it myself but I'm still looking for someone who could make me one. View More

Fantasy_Land: Loved this story, very well written. Character & plot development is good as well as the flow of story. If anyone's looking for anything fresh and interesting, then this is your cup of tea. Highly recommend it to the readers.

** you have got another reader, that's me.
Although I do hope you change your book cover to an anime one, it's bound to attract more readers, but then again it's my own opinion.

Keep up the good work 👌

This review reflects my ideas up until chapter 18.

The story is quite similar to a few rich-people-hating-each-other-but-later-falling-in-love trope. I do admit it has it's own charms.

Characters are a bit similar to stereotype and to one another, it's almost hard trying to distinguish between them. Yes they male and female protagonists hate each other but their world, career, disposition, and even circle of friends are quite similar.

The story seems a bit fast-paced, but then again the chapters are quite short - so you have to wait for a bit (if you're up to date), or you blitz through the chapters (like me). It's almost as if quantity was one of the main selling points for this book.

For the world background, the novel does describe it in detail. However it is limited to the world of the elite, so it feels redundant and expected at times.

Overall it's really interesting with how the shortness of the chapters play into the novel. It almost leaves a lot to be filled in by you, the reader (which is not a bad idea at all). View More

Pgimz: The writing quality is good. The journey with Sebastian let’s you feel and see everything he does which was great! The only things as a fellow reader I️ can say is, I️ thought the story’s development was slow. Like one reader mentioned; I thought there was a lot of info and was getting lost in reading. However it all tied together because I kept reading since I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Good writing author!
