Book: Veil Verse!
Cultivating Chaos & Asgard Awakening
Authors: Blaise Corvin & William D. Arand
Spoilers most likely!
This review is a bit different. This review is on a universe made by two awesome indie writers which the main characters (or MCS) may or may not cross but who knows?
That’s part of the fun! Now, let us start reviewing the books individually, shall we!
Cultivating Chaos is a cultivation novel that’s first person. The book barely has any grammar issues I saw, and how Arand writes his works it’s easy to read, fun to enjoy it doesn’t give you any complicated terminology and engages you almost immediately.
Now for those of you who have read cultivation novels… the MC Ash is not your typical Cultivator, he doesn’t think like one at all. While he loves martial arts he disdains having to talk a lot of crap, or talking all mystical like he’s way more of a laid back mc which why he’s awesome. It takes the tropes of Chinese cultivation novels and makes them more bearable, fun and engaging.
If hungry for a good wuxia that doesn’t have a lot of filler this is for you!
Asgard Awakening is about a man who becomes a slave, escapes slavery and slowly becomes a god. This MC is Trav who went through a lot since transported to the veil verse.
Warning it’s not a wuxia so don’t expect Trav to be jumping realms or anything he still has to find his own path to power. The title kinda spoilers part of it so I’ll leave it to your imagination.
The grammar good! It’s first person as well and easy to read there’s a lot more introspection in this novel then Cultivation Chaos about Trav and how everything he survives changes him.
Now all together there are already links to both worlds of each Main character that I think going to make this universe great.
The start of both books drags you in, engages you with the side characters half of them known as kin, beast people pretty much and with their different…culture it’s an interesting cultural difference. There’s more hidden but I’ll leave that to the readers I give this series a must read approval! Buy worthy!
It sets the foundation for a mass universe and I cannot wait for more!
I give both novels an 8/10!
Both books can be found here.
