The initial concept behind ‘The Antithesis’ is intriguing, and comes across as ‘Dollhouse’ meets ‘Dogma’ with some time travel thrown in at first glance. Our main character, Alezair is a ‘marionette’ owned by the Nexus, whose mission is hijacked by a mysterious woman. Currently, the story as at 3 chapters, and will be updated once weekly.
The dialogue is fun and interesting, and Alezair’s introspection is usually quite snappy and sarcastic. The location switches appear to be well described – as a Japanese major, it was a joy, nay a miracle NOT to be annoyed by descriptions of ancient Japan!
On one occasion, the descriptions of the Mysterious Woman can come across purplish prose, but I concede that this could be a word choice preference on my part, and it certainly did not impede my reading on.
The story seems to be steadily working on bring certain reveals and bigger mysteries as well – we’re still finding out about what precisely the Nexus entails. I’m looking forward to see what the future instalments will bring, and will definitely be reading on.
