SPELLBOUND

by KazzenlX

Editor's Review

Filled with characters that intrigue, this clever spin on individuals from opposing sides forced into a marriage alliance draws readers in from the start. Just as the protagonists develop and learn to put aside stereotypes and prejudice, so do readers get drawn deeper into the web. Naturally, it helps that Kazzenlx exerts masterful control over the pace of the novel, creating peaks of tension that are balanced with transitions and new developments. A must read for fans of vampire and historical romance!

Inhuman Warlock

by Demonic_angel

Editor's Review

Demonic_angel has shown good mastery of creating three dimensional characters and a plot that is easy for readers to immerse themselves into. Using a sympathetic character, readers will be kept at the edge of their seats as they follow along on the adventures the story constantly creates. The story also manages to show that things aren't always as simple as they come as the main character comes face to face with moral dilemmas which would leave readers anticipate on what was to come.

Reader's Review

The book is great in all necessary ways. It has great grammar and language, though with violence, beautiful character design, steady updates, long chapters, perfect plot and great presentation. The story development is perfectly executed and very likable. The creativity is not the brightest but the story development makes up for it

Letters to Romeo.

by ash_knight17

Editor's Review

Mystery, fear and anticipation pack a powerful opening punch for this novel. As Julianne Winters explores and discovers Veteris’ secrets, readers are invited on a thrilling rollercoaster ride into a world of vampires and hunters. Author ash_knight17 creates a cast of characters both believable and instantly attractive against a seemingly innocuous background that draw readers into what traditionally would have been the playground of horror. A most entertaining and thrilling read.

Reader's Review

I thought at first it was another cliche, but it became obvious that this was spectacular and it grabbed my attention. The story's pace has the appropriate amount of teasing, tension and every other spice that made this meal tasty. The  characters are unique and layered. With their names coincidently similar to Romeo and Juliet, readers will anticipate the difficulty encountered by the leads on their romantic journey.

Ileus: The Dark Prince

by MishaK

Editor's Review

What happens if you hatch an escape plan and end up with someone most unexpected? That is the question that confronts the female lead at the start of Ileus: The Dark Prince after her successful escape from an arranged marriage. MishaK’s consummate crafting of story arcs put a spin on tropes and enable readers to be emotionally immersed in the world of fantasy. Intriguing and definitely addictive!

Reader's Review

The novel possesses a remarkable ability to draw readers in through the use of high-quality grammar and language. The use of the werewolf cliche, along with a dash of royal romance, has elevated the overall quality of the story significantly. This novel is worthy of a nomination just for its plot and insanely likeable characters.

Eternal Cultivation of Alchemy

by Snoring_Panda

Editor's Review

The author is masterful in laying down the foundational blocks for the story's plot. Combining the theme of cultivation and virtual reality, the author has manged to craft a unique reading experience for the readers.

Reader's Review

The book shines when it comes to creativity. If one considers the theme of the book, which is cultivation, it is very hard to give a modern touch to it. Many books try to add cultivation and VR together but very few are able to do it right. This is one of the books that did it right.

Epic of Ice Dragon: Reborn As An Ice Dragon With A System

by PancakesWitch

With Epic of Ice Dragon: Reborn As An Ice Dragon With A System, the author has crafted a world that is immersive and interesting in its own unique way. The power progression is gradual yet satisfying in its own way, and the relationships the main character forms along his journey in the new world are both heartwarming and fulfilling as well.

God of Tricksters

by Fixten

Editor's Review

Instead of the usual revenge story plots, Fixten has given a new way for such a setting where trickery and guile triumphs over brawn. Readers are treated to the various intriguing plots and devices that the main character comes up with, resulting in many clever comebacks and conclusions to the various conflicts that appear in the story. Definitely an interesting spin on this trope.

Reader's Review

The author is great at describing things so that the reader can imagine them clearly. There are potential for the plot in the future, a lot of ways how this novel is going to go. The premise itself isn't that original or new, but well executed.

Dimensional Descent

by Awespec

Editor's Review

An interesting setting coupled with a unique system. Though the story might seem simple at first, Awespec manages to show that things can be much more complex than it looks, hooking readers to dive deeper into the story to find its secrets.

Reader's Review

Fantastic character designs! Within 22 chapters, all the important characters that were introduced were memorable, distinguishable, and most importantly, they felt real & relatable. They all have their own goals, ambitions, shortcomings, personal agendas, as well as unique personality. All of these contribute to well-rounded, raw, and robust individuals. Everyone’s personalities were very likeable, or, at the very least, reasonable given their role. No one did anything illogical or out of character. I enjoyed the dynamic relationship between certain characters,

Dimensional Descent

by Awespec

Editor's Review

Amidst Earth's evolution from three dimension to four dimensions, the story's male protagonist, Lionel Morales, goes from an aimless 17-year-old to a brave warrior. He keeps his father's teachings in mind throughout his growth: respect and determination. The novel and characters are placed in a grand setting. It vividly describes how the male protagonists defeats his weak nature through the numerous battles he undergoes, as well as how the female lead gradually accepts him. The story sends reverberations to the core, and its values are simple but sincere. If we want to dictate our own lives in this constantly changing world, we can only hone ourselves to become stronger. Without strength, there is no true peace.

Blood Warlock: Succubus Partner in the Apocalypse

by XIETIAN

Editor's Review

In a supernatural world, the male protagonist, who comes from a humble background, gradually unrevels the secrets of the universe as well as his birth. He doesn't fight for glory or power, but for the fate of his love. He risks peril by entering higher-dimensional worlds; yet, his love has another ploy—let another male protagonist in another spacetime continuum replace him! The story's logic gives this world setting an intriguing feeling. The emotions it brings to the reader is impactful.
