This is a great story, the plotline is original, the characters are awesome but I gotta level with you bro, your naming skills suck. So far we have a black dragon called Nightmare, met an elf named Leif, and pirates called Blackbeard, Captain Jack and Captain Cook. 

It's just a tad lazy

Your story is great so far but I strongly suggest you get a new picture for your book. Technically speaking you can be sued for pladjurism I know that is not your intent but its a good idea even if the chances are slim that you would be sued as you are not making a profit off it its better safe then sorry as they say.


I gotta say this story is one of the best I have seen on Royal road in a long time.

all i ask is that you do not stop writing out of nowhere, it hurts to see good stories just disappear

story line seems fine i think, could make a nice story. but thats it, the story lacks emotion, it feels like you just retell some events and the character development etc is just too shallow. dialoages often feel too forced as compared to a natural flow that gives information, character and story development and TENSION, thats what it lacks, its boring to read. also im not so pleased at that lazy naming style which is kinda bothering, either go for a fantasy setting and use fantasy names or go for real world setting, but dont go using names of both to suit yourself, just needlessly throws the reader out of the story for just a short moment of "hah lol he used that name".

feels more like im reading an early draft than a story. dont understand how this gets so popular...

Has a lot of potential and interesting story. My only problem other than grammar was that the beginning was too rushed and not well written. So much background information was left out and not enough characterization. So despite those faults I can see that the author is doing his best so I give it at least 4 stars for their effort. Keep up the good work.

The first few chapters felt a bit...      

Boring and kinda confusing...

But I guess the story got better as it went?
