Review(s)

AlexAnbi: The story, the parts I’ve read, is very interesting. The progress between characters have a slightly unbalanced pace. 
Though, there are parts where I can’t seem to understand what exactly is happening because of grammar issues. I’ll power through to finish this but so far, I’m not quite into it yet.

SouthToiletWizard: So far world building has been immersive. Demons, God’s,and Ghost are similar with distinct differences.
The MC is still being fleshed out and his mentor is still demonstrating knowledge. I look forward to seeing how this developes in the future! Please continue the story and may we all gain happiness from it.

lets_get_this_rice: I was already sold after the preview😂
Love how deep and detailed the story is! The amount of depth worked into the plot is already smoothly rolled over your head adter only a few chapters.
The grammar is really good! It really strengthens the detailed plot, characters, and world. Splendid.
Character’s are really refreshing. Hope to see some more development later in the story!
Keep it up! 🙂

Nightmare_Taichou: With only eight chapters I don’t think I can give a proper review but I’ll write on what I can. 
Character design was done well, the two characters Yue Ji and ChenChen are pretty fleshed out, no problems there. 
World background…There is a little vagueness in the terms of the Mortal Realm..Sure, readers can know that it’s set in the modern day, supposedly China since the characters’ names are such. 
Story Development..so far it’s pretty easy to follow and it makes for an interesting read if one likes these kinds of stories with gods. 
Writing quality is not bad. 
Continue writing!

Chryiss: Chapter One: Your A/N said there was too much “was” and “were,” but those words are necessary for proper setences. For example, “What he realized first (was) that he was falling.” and “Often, human whose body wasn’t strong enough (was) harmed or worse, died.” Although with the latter, it would sound better if it was restructured plurally, “Often, humans with bodies that weren’t strong enough were harmed, or worse, died.” But in general, your grammar is good. 
Yuan Ji and YueChen’s meeting and dialogue was entertaining. I also became curious why Yuan Ji got banished, and why YueChen is a ghost. 
Chapter Two & Three: Yuan Ji and YueChen bounce off one another really well. They both different, and their interactions and thoughts are amusing. The story Yuan Ji told was interesting, but maybe because it’s still early into the story, I’m wondering where the story is leading to. The synopsis didn’t give much of an idea either. 
Anyway, although it was short, I enjoyed this! You write well, and the characters are good. I look forward to seeing how everything plays out in future chapters.

StenDuring: This review is part of a review swap and valid as of chapter six. 
Six chapters quite honestly isn’t enough for any kind of decent review. Bear that in mind when it’s time for the stars. 
Fallen god merges with an adolecent kid in the modern world. Well, that’s about it. 
We have a backstory that reads like a poetically written academic treaty on the history of deitypolis. Then the meeting between boy and god, a slice of flashback, some more backstory and a little slice of life with boy and god learning how to share a body and a mind. 
You can’t expect much more from six chapters. 
Now for the stars. 
Writing: Four stars. Gets better after a while, but the first chapters use a peculiar English to say the least. Verbs are simply dropped left and right. 
Updates: Six chapters isn’t enough for an assessment. I’ll just hand out the five stars. 
Story: Four stars. Backstory, story proper, flashback, backstory and story proper again. All crammed into six chapters. 
Characters: Five stars. While we’ve barely touched the beginning the two main characters are nicely fleshed out. 
World: Four stars. This is an aggregate of a five star backstory and a three star story proper. While a lot of telling and little showing, the backstory is told very well. As for the story proper. I know it’s set in today’s world, and that’s about it. Oh, and the setting has to be China. 
Lastly, the deficiencies I’ve pointed out are likely to be ironed out later. The author decided to properly give us the characters and the background, but it comes at the cost of world and plot. Still, we’re only six chapters in.
