Synopsis

***Volumes 1 and 2 are now available on Kindle Unlimited. All chapters before 77 are only a preview. Thank you for reading!***

After centuries of endless wars, the three greatest nations of the continent have come together in peace. As a symbol of their cooperation, they have worked together to establish the Grand Academy of Spiritual, Martial, and Arcane Arts, a place where the best and brightest of each nation can gather on neutral ground and share knowledge, techniques, and cultures. Can the peace truly last, or is the academy just another proxy for the constant conflicts the three nations face?

None of that matters to Lee Jia, a homeless young girl who's biggest concern is surviving the winter. But when she accidentally stumbles into the academy in search of a new place to stay, her destiny is changed forever. Determined to carve out a new place for herself and make the most of her good fortune, Lee Jia dives head first into the world of magic and martial arts.

Fates Parallel is my first serious attempt at writing a story, and a personal love letter to Eastern fantasy and xianxia stories. It's heavily inspired by East Asian culture, folklore, and mythology, with what is likely going to be a decidedly Western artistic license. I try to write every day, with a goal of about 45,000 words per month (~1500 per day). Chapter lengths are around 3000 words on average, releasing on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

      Been binging the ever living heck out of this in the past few days. I've sacrificed sleep because I literally can't stop. That's how good this is.

      This is not your stereotypical wuxia/xianxia power fantasy. Every character is well developed and has their own place and story in the world (which is built up really good, I might add). 

      There are a few issues that don't really have to do with prose or grammar, though. 

      Spoiler

      The author has mentioned that one particular arc was badly received. Personally, I think that it does a good job of highlighting all the nuances and tensions in their world. But I'll admit that I did have to put down my phone to take a breather at some point. It isn't completely unbearable, and it really does get a lot better later on. Reception really depends on the reader.

      I'm looking forward to more.

      I had to stop. There is a HUGE betrayel and the person lives. I've been jumping around trying to see if there is a satisfying confrontation, and either I've missed it or simply hasn't happened yet. And it is not something that just get's forgiven. This was mind rape. I am so mad.

      EDIT: The writing is great, the story is good, the characters are portrayed well. It is a testament to the quality of the writing that I got so worked up. The chapters are a good length. 

      It feels like time can be rather fluid though. It seems like things that should progess within a chapter or two takes four or more. And the time period in those chapters vary from day's to weeks, making it feel like everything is kind of a blur.
