Review(s)

MyCharacterLeads: It’s already midnight here, but I urge to finish this to settle my mind before sleeping. Such good novel.
Well written characters. I love the two, Mark and Akio. But sometimes, I sense a little rush of building the two closer. A little more interaction between the would do.
As the other saying, grammar needs some sort of profreading.
**. My first BL novel…

Lovelywuju17: I originally wanted to read it until 20 chapters, but then I realized I finished it until the end hahaha. I’m half into BL genre, but I didn’t hate it so I’ll give you a great job for the story. The writing quality would be more awesome if you add some more detail on it. Like how his reaction or how he felt. There were misspelling words or grammars too that need to be fixed and some cleanup. Well, who am I to judge? I’m not an English speaker and when I wrote my novel, I have a lot of mistakes as well XD.
Anyway, good job for the story! I’ll try to read your new story again in the future 😉

NatsumeRikka: This book was so good, I literally finished it in like three hours. I’m a big fan of BL and am always in search for good BL novels. If you’re like me, you have to read this book. Aside from a few simple mistakes, the plot was very interesting and the characters more so. All in all, I would have given it a 5,if not for the small mistakes. I recommend Author to get an editor if possible.

Chryiss: The writing has frequent punctuation and spacing errors but nothing a little proofreading can’t fix easily.
It feels like Mark and Akio’s relationship was rushed somewhat in the beginning and then put on a standstill during Wang Xiu’s case. Perhaps if it was built up more slowly throughout the solving of her case, it would be more believable.
I’m not quite getting the horror and thriller feel of the genre yet, but I can see it progressively getting there. What ruined the suspense for me, however, were the questions at the end of each chapter. It totally broke the story immersion for me because those questions are naturally asked by the readers themselves at the end. It’s redundant to ask such obvious questions.
Besides this, I enjoyed the story! I like how Mark is half-Indian because most MCs on here are Chinese.
Good job, keep it up!
