Lesbian anime version of Forge of Destiny

Overall I liked this book, even if it had a forced pg-13 feel at times, and the only reason it's not a full 5 star is the narrator having a lack of distinct voices and the lack of slice of life padding, I'd have preferred the book to be longer with more exploring of the social relationships. Not only would it help to learn more of the side characters, it'd also give me a actual chance to learn some names. I call it a anime version, because of the character with a literally bakemonogatari style catch phrase and the tickle fights and shower scene.


Spoilers for this book and Forge below

This book has many similar things to forge that I'd be surprised if one didn't read the other, from the gutter rat mc saying she's protected her body on the streets to the emotionally stunted lesbian roommate, the first people being met are a problematic noble and their strong silent retainer, and the unapproachable "princess" with strange powers that discourage friends, among other things, it's like they took character traits and just threw them in a bowl and mixed them all up.

Such a fun listen!

I feel that these kinds of light stories live and die on essentially 3 things: characters, setting and narrator and I want to applaud the writer and voice actor for getting everything right. I am left wanting more, but not at an awkward moment. The ending seems natural for a multi-piece story line.

--Potential spoilers (but not really)--

Readers should already know that this involves a sweet romance between female characters. The story is also fairly light on romantic elements, though the listener can obviously see them approaching from the context and I didn’t find there to be any kind of annoying shenanigans by the author getting in the way. Heads up that it may happen in the next book. I personally don't mind that kind of thing so long as it is kept light and isn't overwhelming.

The Novels are fantastic.

The audiobook is great. But fair warning. You might get sucked into it. The books gets a lot better and yes. You can get book 3 on their Patreon. As well as book 2 on kindle unlimited.

OMG they were roommates

Read this story as the webnovel. It's a fun interpretation of wuxia/xianxia novels with lesbians! it's great to have it in audiobook form now so I can listen to it while I'm at work. the characters in this story are fun and starting the series over from the beginning is quite enjoyable.

story seemed ok but didn't like the narrator

Honestly the narrator's MC voice was great bust any narration and many of the other characters were done and a very quiet breathy voice I couldn't stand for long. I might switch to reading this one because the story seemed interesting.
