Will always keep you guessing!

(That awful moment when you realize your review didn't actually post when you made it weeks ago! I'm so sorry I didn't notice!)
Remnant is a mysterious young adult novel that follows primarily the experiences of a teenager by the name of Ethan. With the ups and downs of hormones and uncertainty, we navigate his struggles with memory loss in a new world where such an experience is common. But secrets have a way of getting out. Strange tattoos, "glitches," whispers, missing time, or memories that don't make sense. Some people know more than they let on, and some are just a bit too suspicious to trust. Who's the real enemy, here? How did they wind up here? What's real, what's not?
The strongest bit of this story is the foundation, a great idea. There's passion and clear intent in the writing, and I truly look forward to the next version of this. I will note that Ethan's perspective is my favorite. I'm not sure how much we need the bits from anyone else's POV, even if it gives us more information. I'd like to see what would happen if we only got everything from Ethan, how that would change the way the book reads?
Thanks for the story!

What a hook!

I'm an avid lover of RPGs, and this book fits that description to the T. The writing is lovely and exciting, and in just the first two chapters, I'm left wondering what's going to happen next. Well done! I look forward to more!

A great start to an epic tale

I've only gotten to read the first story in this series, but I'm immensely interested in Elianna's story and the fantasy and mystery that surrounds her. Beautiful and haunting imagery, a natural narrative, and memorable characters punctuate this short story. Highly recommend.

And an aside, I hope Taryn returns at some point in the future. I adored him.

Addicting

Clicked on a whim, stayed for the very likeable Persephone and her incredible relationships with people. I'm not done yet but I'll probably binge the rest just like I have from the beginning!

Fun start!

We're only given a little taste of what's to come, but I can say I'm excited. The blurb got me trading, and the tone of the writing is easy enough to just keep going without noticing any time passing. I look forward to keeping up with future updates!

Why did it have to end?

I desperately hope the author is still writing this. The snippet caught me and by the third chapter, I was in deep. Loveable characters, fascinating setting, and a plot that's just gotten started. I look forward to more!

Addicting!

I swear I read the beginning of this when it was first getting written. It was so strange to stumble upon this by chance to get to know the rest of the story. I'm not done yet, but it's hard to stop reading!

Delicious Vengeance

A lot of stories surrounding vengeance or revenge end with a sappy moral about how it won't make the victim feel better. I'm pleased to feel that this won't be the case. The first few chapters really lead be to believe that we will get a fully violent, sickening and satisfying end. This is a dark tale--no false advertising there. If you want dark, you've got it here.

We follow a severely tortured soul who is looking to torture whoever wronged him. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to get ALL of his enemies, and so now he must find a way to use his evil form to find relief from this burning hatred he has for a deeper kind of evil.

As far as improvements, you're already aware that a savvy editor can clean up some comma help, so I won't repeat it. But finishing it will help too ;) I look forward to a disgusting and satisfying ending!

Compelling!

We follow a simple farm boy, Leo, on the cusp of adulthood as he navigates a horrible tragedy and crime committed to his lifelong village. A true fantasy, this story has magic, stories, creatures, and adventures. It is a lovely draft. I love the plot, I love the characters. With a thorough editor, this story has an impressive future ahead!
