medium review/rant of the book after v4
volume 5-6(stopped 10c into v6) is a meme. basically a new story, author forgot techniques side characters threw us readers into a different situation, but that would be fine but it takes over and never mentions the forgotten things again except for 1-5 words. basically the author abandoned the story we got invested into and characters with no warning and has no intention to go back. plot advanced, but the charm did not. i found this also happened in a couple other books on this website (eternally blood emperor v4-5-6..) wish there were many more reviews and ratings saying how far into the book you got, because the first 4 volumes were fantastic, the 8.5 rating is true for sure, but... hope this helps others. do not expect the story you like after v4 it changes kind of follows the main plot but the care and charm are gone (everything else).
