    The currently existing written reviews really don't do this WN justice

    You may have noticed, all written reviews are either 5 stars or 4 stars but the actual rating is lower than 4 stars, and that's for good reasons.

    First of all, this story is a tragedy/dark-themed. That's perfectly acceptable, if not for how badly it was executed. The plot makes no sense at all at times and the MC is a huge doormat. Seriously, everyone around the MC and the MC herself are doormats, to the point of letting powerless teenagers walk all over them while being way more powerful than all of them combined individually.

    Secondly, the writing itself is borderline atrocious. The punctuations are basically all wrong, wrong word usage and TERRIBLE formatting. Switching up "your" and "you're" is gotta be one of the worst mistakes I've ever seen from a WN with more than 100k views.

    Worst of all, for me at least, is the constant switch between first person and third person even when its MC POV. This is one of my biggest taboos in reading WNs. I absolutely HATE inconsistent perspective and putting it on a WN guarantees no higher than 3/5 from me.

    In conclusion, the previous written reviews of this WN don't do it justice. There's only one word to describe this WN: bad. Not enough to be terrible but its still bad. The MC and everyone else that's half-important are doormats, the plot sometimes make no sense and the writing itself being terrible with bad grammar, bad punctuations, terrible formatting and constant switch between first and third person. 2/5. Would have given a 1/5 but there are WNs even more terrible than this so I'll let it slide with a 2/5.

    My Rating: 5 stars!

    A very, very, very good novel. Quite dark but I’m an intriguing way. The story really gets you thinking and engaging with the character. For the first time ever, I was unable to figure out what I wanted to do. On one hand 


    I wanted Mari to kill Maya cause she deserves death. But on the other hand she doesn’t because she’s and innocent girl doing the best for her country.

    It was the first time a book has made me unable to figure out my own emotion and what I would have done in a similar scenario. Great book! Can’t wait for more! 

    P.S.: The author is very engaged with the community and is very good with regular updates. Really recommend trying out the book!

    Ok, so I am giving this story four stars. The story seems intriguing so far and as far as I read, the character development of the protagonist is satisfying. The one star I deducted because of the punctuation errors.
