Ok so I didn’t think I’d like this novel after I read the bio but in all honesty I think after reading the first 5 chapters (all that’s out at this point) that this novel has the potential to be brilliant. It’s giving me a hunger games, terror infinity, survival horror game type vibe. The characters seem well thought out and I’m honestly looking forward to the rest of the novel. Tbh although I’ve seen the concept before this author seems to definitely have his own style of going about things. The chapters are long and its a book where you can’t just skim the paragraphs but I’m really looking forward to this. I won’t say much about the 2 main characters because it’s only 5 chapters in and while they are set up well we don’t know much about them really. Even with that tho they already seem to have a nice depth to them. The world on the other hand is set up amazing so far and leaves you wanting more but in a very good way. I’ll be keeping an eye on this novel. After you’ve read some leave a comment and tell your thoughts. I’m interested to know.

Edit: it just kept getting better......

While still in its infancy (9 releases) the story certainly has the trappings of a Terror Infinity-esque thriller. The novel starts with a military train session that goes awry with the main characters Being transported to a strange new world where they’re trapped and simply left to wait and prepare for the unknown. Sprinkle in enhanced strength and mental prowess that hint at development to come and cryptic messages left by previous inhabitants (?) referring to the location being hell and not being even allowed to die and the stage is set.

Character development thus far seems average to good for these types of novels, and it moves at a good speed and with intelligent inner thinking/dialogue. My only early rub was that it starts with the old trope of “helpless female soldier needing to be protected” but as the story progresses they give her her own strengths and the character development rotates away from that. Male character seems a well written and thoughtful lifetime combat soldier and is believable to role. Really enjoy the how they grow together as an interdependent union vs a dominant submissive relationship, which yields results.

Overall a great start and looking forward to more!

UPDATE:

Okay, this was a really interesting read, the first way I could describe it was "unique" because I haven't read any webnovel like this one.

Don't expect lots of action, there will be few fights, this isn't the main focus of the story, but rather the philosophical clashes between both protagonists and the different factions of the world they're in. There will be several extremely dense chapters defining either the viewpoints of the antagonists, or Biyeon thinking things WAY too hard.

The chemistry between protagonists is perhaps the highest point of the series, this didn't felt like a romance, but even more than that, it advanced slowly, but in a relatable and realistic way.

The ending was abrupt and left some points hanging, but it had some (EXTREMELY dense!) appendix chapters giving a rather profound explanation of the source of powers, and even the origin of the world the protagonists were in.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

Pretty good so far, the thing I would like to point out the most is the extremely interesting chemistry between both protagonists, this is not (for now) a romance, but rather the strongest bond between two survivors, to the point that they're almost a single mind on two bodies.

It also has it's own share of action, but focuses more on the planning stages of the combat, so readers who prefer a more cerebral approach to action should like this novel.

It reminds me quite a bit of Gantz, especially the cloning/respawn mechanics that the antagonists use on test subjects, and also "sovereign of judgement" considering the part about aliens using humans as both troops, meatshields and experiments to fight wars for them, hopefully Etranger won't be as grimdark as both examples, but time will say.
