Waking up to the fact that you’re a one-armed, one-eyed orphan?
You get used to it.
Being sent to some museum with a bunch of brats because some heartless corporation wants pictures to convince middle-aged women that they truly care deep down inside?
Pretty lame, but that’s Tuesday for ya.
Seeing the sky tear open and the invasion alarms go off?
Getting superpowers from some all-knowing and terribly unhelpful aliens?
Not as awesome as you might think.
A cyberpunk magical-girl-ish alien invasion LitRPG. It’s exactly as wild as it sounds.
I absolutely adore this novel, but why are there no reviews at all?
The story overall is a bit slow but it's filled with action and allot of sci-fi goodies. I like how the characters feel like actual people and I find myself bonding with them rather quickly. Though I wish there was more romance between the couple since there have only been hints and suggestions.
I recommend this novel if you like like human vs allien type of scifi novel with a hint of romance. I know I do!
A really enjoyable story. Funny, cute, adorable at times that sidles up to catastrophic mayhem.
All of RavensDagger stories that I read have entertained me greatly. I recommend not only this story but her others as well: Heart of Dorkness, Lever Action, and Tentacles Cafe come to mind. One of these days I will have to dive into Cinnamon Bun.
guns, boobs and explosions... what more could you need?
Ps (i joke but it is still very good)
It has been a bit since I made a review last, so I might be a bit rusty. But.
I am really liking this story. It has kept it's entertainment throughout. I was thinking that once the action of the initial incursion was over; that'd it start getting a bit lame. But I'm glad to say I was proven wrong.
If I were to point out any issues I had. Then I'd say it really comes down to two things. The MC despite only being 17 (Almost 18) Acts like a 30-year old veteran. I get her life had been tough so she'd naturally have a tougher outer shell. But the amount of stuff that happened within one day and the MC's reaction seemed a bit weird. She never seemed to really react to it. It all came across as a big joke to her I feel. Not bad necessary. But I feel a bit of seriousness could've been good for the character. Like her initial reaction is muted due to it happening. But once she has a break she starts realizing she pretty much died, resuscitated, and became a super awesome OP person.
This might also have to do with the MC's past which hopefully gets explored. But her reaction to getting an arm was fairly tame. Same with Lucy being able to walk. I guess I was expecting more something like drama? Fanfare? I don't know what to call it.
I am hoping we get some more interesting body modifications in this story. I always thought the body horror/ cosmetic genre of stories is interesting. Such as the use of the face sculptor mentioned once. The MC's appearance isn't really mentioned much besides her deformities. So I think this could be quite interesting to see.
Same with more external stuff. Like how she is getting more Cat-themed battle gear. I'm still hoping we get something like an exo-suit that has her running around on all fours like a cat. The image of a Cat themed Samurai that is stealth is quite a fitting theme.
The pacing is great for this story and the Author never lingers on things too long. Writing has little to no grammar mistakes from what I remember. And the MC isn't an annoying protagonist that isn't afraid to get even slightly s*xual and isn't on the other spectrum where she's a deviant in s*x and the entire story revolves around s*x. It's that nice middle ground from what I have noticed.
Honestly a pretty good novel. I like that that main character is obsessed with protecting her own. Whether it be her found family, or people that she only has the smallest inkling of a good impression of.
I have been wanting to pick up this series for awhile, and I am really glad I finally did so. Loving the character developments, world building, and tons of awesome scifi/cyberpunk goodness, and they are all blended with good humor and great writing into absolute treat of a read! If you are just like me, hesitating abit (or simply want to pick up a good scifi/cyberpunk series), do give first few chapters a try and soon enough you will find yourself binging read the entire series up to date!
when it comes to sci-fi, actually sensible system types, combat, and action in a world that is unfortunately realistic, you are at the right place. It has the right amount o romance (offscreen yuri) and slice of life for flavour
Interesting characters. Funny. I look forward to every update. The world though.. Oh boy.. Corporate d*ckery. Little to close to home with how things are going. Specially with the stories my mother told me about living in a 'Company Town'. :)
Edit: Okay SH rating script is annoying me.
A truly enjoyable story. Action, comedy, fluff, snarky AI companions, it's got all you could ask for in a story like this. My only minor complaint is that everything has been moving so fast as far as time passes in the story, but this issue is so minor and overshadowed by all the positives that I can't be too bothered.
A fantastic series, that only continues to get better as it releases. I could not recommend this more! I love the way RavensDagger manages to build the world through epigraphs and in the story proper. It’s fantastic, and I look forward to reading even more!
