Synopsis

The Demon Lord has won. The Chosen are dead. The gods are cut off from the world. The Hero, despite everything, has fallen. The world is doomed and can no longer be saved. However, there is still a small hope. While what has happened cannot be fixed, it can hopefully be stopped from ever happening in the first place. The hero is granted another try to set things right, with just a few changes to their story.

Again and again the hero tries, living through life after life, struggling against what they believe to be impossible odds. In a final desperate gamble they give up everything they ere, the title of hero, their powers and their birthright to be given a new chance with the knowledge of all of their failures at their fingertips.

But if the Hero of Legend with all of their divine abilities can’t save the world, how can a little girl?

Currently posting a chapter on monday and wednesday each week until the first book has been posted entirely. (20 chapters in all)

      Status: chapter 20: the book (final)

      This story is incredibly ambitious and unique. Based on the synopsis and the contents so far, it seems like the author is aiming very high with this story. And, as of this point in the story, they are absolutely delivering.

      The first book of this story, the Prologue to Chapter 20, is almost completely dedicated to establishing the main character's character. As stated in the synopsis, the hero tries again and again to set things right before giving up absolutely everything in a final, desperate gamble. These chapters completely focus on the internal conflicts the main character experiences as a consequence to her final gamble, and this story explores these consequences on a scale unseen in (most likely) any other story on ScribbleHub.

      After the prologue, the story begins with the main character remembering all of their previous lives all at once, including everything that comes with it. From then until Chapter 20, the story focuses on the MC working through all of her trauma, insecurity, stress, depression, and self-derision that comes with remembering all of her previous failures. The story also focuses on the MC coming to terms with her new self and the consequences of remembering her lost identity. Some spoiler-free examples include her trying to use abilities she can no longer use, her trying to take advantage of strength she no longer has, and her trying to rely on "common sense" that no longer applies to her. And, because the author is developing her complex MC in a way that is realistic to her situation, these internal conflicts are not handwaved away at the end like a simple magic trick. The MC is only beginning to work through everything. The author's framing and writing of these internal conflicts is given so much description, consideration, and careful thought, that there (most likely) isn't anything like it on this website.

      Other than the excellent character development, Book 1 honestly doesn't have much else to talk about. The chapters until Chapter 20 are so focused on character development that not much focus is given on anything else. Book 1 feels more like an extended pilot instead of a complete book. However, this does not mean that the story will always be lacking on this regard. There is plenty of setup, buildup, intrigue, and foreshadowing done in the story so far that will result in great payoffs in the future. All that's left to do is to wait until the author starts releasing the schedule chapters of the already completed Book 2 to see how the other aspects of the story develop.

      Regardless of the incomplete feeling of Book 1, this story so far deserves a high rating for the incredibly descriptive and considerate character writing alone, with seemingly much more coming in the near future.

      Extra Note: If anyone is curious, I wrote a much longer, much more spoiler heavy comment of my thoughts and expectations about this story on "Chapter 20: The Book (Final)." This comment is very, VERY spoiler heavy, so I don't recommend you read it until you finish that chapter.

      Status: chapter 3: the difference

      Very interesting premise, execution so far is well done in its early phases. I look forward to future developments, this is a story to bookmark for future reading if you don't wish to dive in yet. I reserve my rating until the novel gets more fleshed out. 

      Review will be edited as the story goes further.

      Status: book 2 chapter 16: 'special'

      A terrific novel about reincarnating hero that's done it thousand of times without past life knowledge and fail. In return for past memory the hero sacrifice his power and reincarnate one more time as ordinary human.

      It's not a story of OP rewind time fix. The newly ordinary hero must introspect taken choice and their true self when the past memory fall short of useful. New challenge and weakness and other insurmountable hardship await our hero in the ultimate life as ordinary human. The niche combination of transgender-adventure-medieval fantasy make this a different and refreshing read.

      I am not an expert. So I rate with my gut feeling and it say that this is one of the best I've ever read.  My head and heart tell me to give this story five star.

      Status: chapter 20: the book (final)

      This is a good story, well written and it flows well. Fairly likeable characters and the premise is cool, but it really feels like only part of a story rather than a whole book itself. Overall I enjoyed it and want to read the next part.

      Read it if you like the premise.

      As there is more to the story coming in the form of another book or several, it's good that the rest is coming, just treat this as part 1 of a single book, rather than the first in a series.

      Thanks to MelodyAdvant!
