More than seventy-five years ago, the Second World War abruptly ended with the advent of the Adumbrae invasion. Piercing the veil between dimensions, these malevolent beings entered our world through possessing humans, turning them into monsters of destructions. Corebrings appeared shortly thereafter, saving humanity from certain annihilation. With their powers, these superhumans remained the protectors of our world to this day.

Twenty-three-year-old Erind Hartwell, a first-year law student at a university specialized in Adumbrae law enforcement, didn't care about any of that. She couldn't muster the effort to care about anything which didn't directly affect her. Incapable of guilt or remorse, she knew she was a psychopath, even if she never used that term to refer to herself. Out of consideration for other people, which everyone should be grateful for, she resolved to have a normal life as much as possible. "I wouldn’t bother the world as long as it didn't bother me" - this is the most of important of the self-imposed Rules that governed her life.

Fate, however, had other plans. Through some misunderstanding, Erind was nearly killed. At the brink of death, an entity came offering powers to save her. Left with no other choice, she accepted it.

Follow Erind's journey as she is inevitably dragged into the battle between Adumbrae and Corebrings, with not only her powers growing but also her control over her psychopathy unraveling.

      Rend introduces us to an alternate-history earth, seen through the eyes of the protagonist, Erind. Erind is a very unique girl who follows a set of mysterious, self-made rules throughout her daily life. As we slowly learn more about her rules and motivations, a strange picture starts to form.

      I was greatly surprised by the level of detail put into creating this massive alternate earth. A good part of my enjoyment comes from slowly unveiling the mystery of it all. It's definitely a concept that I havn't seen done before.

      Erind is likable protagonist in an unconventional way. She understands that she is different from others, but does her best appear normal to the people around her. Her morality is based heavily on efficiently getting the things she wants, not being evil for the sake of evil, like other third-rate villains.

      My only complaint is that the story starts off a bit slow and meandering, but once the author understands the direction they want to take the story, it quickly gets to it's feet. And then it starts to run.
