MAGIK ONLINE

Its a good one

By Bobthebuilder, member

Mar 13, 2019: This series is very new, nust a couple months old, but is already 17 very long, fairly well written chapters in – so #1 plus point for me is consistent and content level of updates.

On to the story: the premise is very unique, especially for a litrpgish story. Its set in the real world, the universe is exactly that – the entire universe, and it promises to explore that angle. While there are a lot of world building questions its obvious that they will be answered, and the answers so far have lived up to the mystery.

As far as the little goes The status screens and leveling system make sense in world, done logically without taking over the story. While there are many questions on what the beck is going on there there is definitely again a promise that answers will come.

The characters are also fairly well developed as believable individuals with real issues and class, and not cliches/stereotypes, that many of these type of stories fall into. That said, there is definitely work to be done here as the protagonost is very ‘heroic’ a word he uses himself for himself. His power growth is also very rapid, as usual for this type of novel – but it does take away some from the realism of the story. Also there is a little bit of an anime harem theme that is frankly a disservice to otherwise good female characters with depth.

Aa the chapters progress it seems like character depth is growing, making me care more about the cast as a whole, and the scope of the plot with it.

Overall, having read most of the top 20 series on this site id say the quality of the writing on this puts it in the top 5 easily, so if you like litrpg this is definitely for u. If you don’t hate likely, you should definitrly check this out. And even if you hate litrpg, I’d still give it a chance. Basically of weird fantasy/sci-fi/action is in your wheelhouse read this!

ANTLERS, COLORADO

A compelling supernatural read with wonderful characters

By RoseQuartz, member

Jan 13, 2019: Antlers is a lovely atmospheric serial that I found through Webfictionguide. Even though it’s a few years old I wanted to leave a review to point out how lovely it is. The characters are compelling and unique and each one has a strongly developed personality. It’s incredibly bingeworthy. Austin as a protagonist was relatable and the cast of characters that grows around him—both living and dead—are a treat. There’s a lot of ambiance in the world and the pace of the story keeps you wanting to read more long long into the night. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this work. Great job, Marn!

ANTLERS, COLORADO

No title

By antishiva, member

Dec 16, 2018: Antlers, Colorado is really something special. I already knew Marn was a great author from reading their other works, but Antlers blew it out of the park. The writing is exceptional, there’s an INCREDIBLE amount of LGBT+ characters (that is completely casual and natural; one never feels like a certain character is a ‘token’ included for representation points), and the plot is out of this world (literally, sometimes). I found myself falling in love with pretty much every character Marn introduced us to, and lost a good amount of sleep staying up and saying "I’ll go to bed after this chapter" which I almost never actually stuck to because each chapter was so amazing.

Definitely give this serial a try, at least. I can guarantee you’ll fall for it just like I did. 🙂
