Meet Threadbare. He is twelve inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her.

Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies...

First off, I want to say that I enjoy(ed) this story. It's definitely better than most on this site, though whether it deserves the no. 1 spot is debatable. Personally, I think it had the potential to be a lot better than it currently is. This is less of a review and more of a rant, so sorry about that.

The presence of soulstones is, in my opinion, the biggest problem in the story. It just makes all fights fall flat and sucks out all the built-up tension. I mean, come on, Celia dies at the very end of a chapter (so there is at least an attempt to make the scene dramatic) and she gets put in a soulstone five lines into the next chapter. It just makes the reader think, "What was the point of that then?" At least have some lasting consequence for being put back into a soulstone, like memory loss or soul deterioration, so it can only be done a certain number of times/each death cripples them further. 

My next issue is the 2d characterisation. Almost everyone in the story can be classified as good or bad, with very little in-between. I think the first character that I saw had differening motives was the King in Chapter 48. Other than that, everyone seemed rather bland. To be fair, I can't really remember the earlier chapters as well so I'm mainly going off of how I feel about the characters at the moment, so this is probably a little inaccurate.

Another problem is how friendly and accepting everyone is. Garon decides to forgive someone who physically and mentally abused him in about 5 minutes because "She was just doing what came naturally". Really? And then there's no lasting discomfort between the two? Plus, when Celia's doing her test to see whether she can go with the army, she lets loose an actual terrorist, and the King's reaction is "Eh, we'll get him later. Love you!" Mordecai has not only killed the King's men before but will likely have the opportunity now again, but the King seems entirely unfazed. Even if he can be hunted down immediately, that would still require high-levelled individuals to waste time finding him. Either way, I think it's a little odd that Celia gets off of effective treason by just saying "No rules :)" 

Maybe I'm just being thick and not getting the light atmosphere at all, but I feel that certain elements of this story are just too incongruous for it to really work as well as it could.

This is a truly fun story to read. I find myself looking for the next chapter to drop constantly. The character is unique and the world has room to grow past the first adventure. Please consider reading!

Surprisely a damn good story here. Not some disgusting cop out copy paste reincarnated person bullshit with half of every chapter being dumb stupid boring numbers and retarded skill nonsense. The primary character best of all stays within its means and character of what and who it is. This is among the EXTREME FEW non human protagonist stories out there and most important is not complete shit. Author is doing good so far and seems to have good direction and pacing aside from the later changes could have been brought out a bit later.

Synopis is actually good to btw

I feel like this story deserves a review, I initially overlooked it, then it became the best rated story on Royal road. Now I understand why, the world is immersive, the characters colourful and the plot intruding. Also, I love Zuula

This is a real gem. The book is well thought out, very well written and to the author i say: Well played, sir!

After 70 chapters i have chosen to review this book, which is not something i do often. This book is VERY well written. The story is coherent and complete. The world- and characterbuilding is done flawlessly and the story has enough silly and tragic to make you laugh and cry with the characters. The characters have depth and personal growth, with individual quirks and personalities.
The world is complex and heartless, and our teddys quest to reunite with his little girl seems impossible at first. Yet with friends and the right attitude, (and ALOT of grindluck!), nothings impossible!

TLDR: Your emotions will be played with as you follow the teddybear who just wanted to be with his little girl. Instead he is sent on a grand quest of impossible proportions, connecting with old friends and new.

Worth every last second.

This story is in one word, a Masterpiece. I have yet to meet another story on RRl, hell, even in general fiction, that can tell such a powerful tale. What starts as a charming tale through the eyes of an animated teddybear, slowly builds into a desperate fight to save the country. 

Lost Demiurge is in his element here, with unique characters, outstanding backstories, interesting mythos, powerrful, heart-wrenching moments and nigh-perfect grammar. I only recently picked up this wonderful story, but found myself entranced by it. And coming from me, that's saying A LOT. i reccomend this story to ALL fantasy fans, no matter which genre you like. THIS is a masterpiece, and i can't wait for more.
