"Hidden Gem!" permalink
This truly is a hidden gem, an absolutely astounding book that deserves all the praise it can get.
So let me, one by one, go through all the aspects of the story that make me love it.
-> Characters - a department I'd rate Scarlet Dream a 12/10 in.
Kais - one of the best-written protagonists of all time. He's an intelligent but overly cautious protagonist who is fun to follow but the best part about his character is that he develops completely realistically.
Ethan, one of the best-written characters of all time and my favorite in the story. At this point, I think he is in my Top 10 Fictional Characters of All Time. Here's why. He starts off as a jester, and plays the role perfectly. The author puts an image of a cold, calculating and psychotic individual in your head at first. But as the story progresses, you learn that there are so many more sides to him. He's one of the most complex characters ever.
Sona - I have rarely ever seen a better female character in a webnovel Slowly and steadily, she has been cast into one of the most dynamic characters in the story with a backstory that completely explains all her actions.
-> Story - 10/10 The story is about a war that seems to be unstoppable, as it is the wish of the 'god' for it to happen. However, there are characters who want to stop it and by doing so, save the world. Yes, god is against saving the world from destruction. He wants to bring the destruction. Do you know why? Well, I don't know either. And wanting to know something like that, is what makes this supernatural/mystery, this second coming of Attack on Titan, the next masterpiece in the line of complicated, philosophical, monochromatic stories.
-> Writing Quality - 10/10 It doesn't feel like the first book that this author has written. It feels like the guy has 40 years of experience and knowledge and is using it all for this book. There's not much to be said here because it can be surmised by one word - perfect.
Finally, enjoyment - 10/10. I am never bored, not even for a single line in the story. It makes me think and I love it.
All in all, I can say that this book has three words to describe it -> Dark! Interesting! Fun!
And the combination we get is, yes, a MUST-READ.
P.S. I have become such a big fan of the authors. I hope to meet them someday. And to earn that someday, I'll work hard to promote this story as much as I can.
Keep writing, author! We need you to!
