About the Author
Miodrag Kovachevic is a video and board game designer born and raised in Serbia. He's had an affinity for languages his entire life and is fluent in English (with a C2 level certificate), German, Serbian and knows some basic Japanese. The Ring of Void is his first published work of fiction and reflects Miodrag's own taste in writing by being to the point and character-oriented, while having a layer of interactivity by letting the readers read between the lines.

Regardless of setting, I think this is a great read for anyone. If you weren't into some of the ideas presented in this, I think you'll appreciate them after reading this. His style is to-the-point without being shallow and makes it really very easy to digest as you go along, giving it a great flow. Not to mention, he did a wonderful job making the characters interesting and likable without needing to going into overly wordy introductions. You get to know everybody in a very natural way. Despite its length, I feel that it makes use of every line in such a way that it's exactly as long as it needs to be. Nothing was lacking by the time the end was reached.
I say all should take the invitation this book offers us into its world, it's worth it.
Whether it's a sequel to this story or an entirely new tale, I can't wait for whatever comes next! \m/ \m/
The only negative thing I have to say is: I would've preferred a demonic husky, instead of a demonic corgi, but that's just me, I don't like corgis. :P
The book is laid out as a series of glimpses into the life of this man, a psychopomp charged with tracking down belligerent souls and returning them to the land of the dead by any means necessary. Along the way, readers will gain insight into Shinnosuke's life through tales of his encounters with these souls and the interactions with his few companions.
I would recommend The Ring of Void to anyone with a penchant for fantasy, the supernatural, or Eastern mythology. Those 70 pages are full of heart—not just the vim of an author who enjoys his craft, but the sort of pulsating conveyance that makes you feel. It seems to me that The Ring of Void is a story about a man trapped too long in the consequences of his past, whose guilt is overwhelming, and whose integrity prevents him from breaking free of either his past or his guilt.
My only real qualm with the book is that I loathe dogs. But if you don't have an aversion to corgis then you've nothing to worry about.
Everything is blended together expertly, and I would highly recommend reading.
