It’s a great setting, but the development is incredible dull and unappealing, the MC is OP and doesn’t have to try too much, is not appealing if there isn’t some struggle. He also is too much trusting in the people he just meet, it turns annoying when they are keeping secrets from him and he doesn’t care.
The worldbuilding has potential, but it lacks depth, we know very little of this people and their world and I didn’t felt invested in their situation, why do they need the magic so much if they learnt who to live without it? The fact that they can use magic from the orbs to create a portal to our world but they are afraid of looking for more magic orbs in the mountains doesn’t make any sense.
The supporting characters are a mixed bag, I like some of the development with the different elf’s cultures and how they learnt to accept one another, but is all very superficial.
Maybe I’ll try the next one, but I’m not in any hurry.
This is mostly just a paranormal fantasy novel as there is very little R. P. G. elements, as understood by the distortion of mine. The romance plot only affects three characters, & thus is fails to really earn the 'harem' category.
It is closer to a love triangle, except the second love scene seems rather contrived and forced by the perception of mine. It happens between the 3rd & 4th Act & none of the other characters really react to it at all. Which left me wondering why the author left it in the final draft to begin with, as it seems to fail to serve a purpose to any plot.
As said, the novel is abundantly enjoyable for anyone who is OK with spending a couple dollars on a story that fails to really challenge anyone let alone the characters. That includes me, which is why the second novel is being read by me, but the author would find their novels more successful if they wrote a skeletal outline for the main plot. That would allow them to follow the Hero's Journey and add as many subversions and plot twists as they want, without needing to rewrite the novel a couple dozen times.
The novel does do a fare amount of world building & keeps the main character flawed & ignorant enough to avoid becoming a Mary Sue.
For sharing Gravity, grateful am I. That the Goddess be asked to alighten a path towards love, joy, & happiness along the self'determined life'cycle chosen by the Higher'Self of yours, by you, pray do I.
The issue I had was with how xenophobic and hateful some of the kingdom elves seem to be. I couldn’t stand one of the party members because of how negative and arrogant she was towards anyone different.
