Coming in first in our list is Fighting the Dark, by Hopeful Writer 123. Right from the synopsis, Fighting the Dark by Hopeful Writer 123 (whom I'll refer to as Hopeful in the future, for simplicity's sake) pulls you in with the well-known struggle between light and dark. The story begins with the death of the main character, Hannah, as she is stabbed on the stomach by an unknown man.
It beautifully explains the plot at the beginning. And the drama of the characters perfectly capture the reader's emotion to make them want her to succeed. And so early in the story, and I have already felt emotion for Hannah and want her to go back in the other reality and save this man. The man that somehow links Hannah and the doctor who brought her to the real world. Now why would a woman in the real world have connections with a man in the fake world? Like you I am dying to find out the backstory of this doctor. Hopeful has proposed quite an interesting situation in her story, and I can't wait to see how that is developed. (There are only three chapters so far, so forgive me if I cannot review too much of the story.)
I think that the beauty of Hopeful's writing lies in its simplistic nature. Though the grammar isn't perfect (though grammar never is) and the way the sentences are strung together makes the story feel choppy and—frankly—a bit awkward at first, I still consider the writing well-done, and I've come to realize that the sentences only add a sort of heartbeat effect to the story, like there is a heart rate monitor beeping to remind the reader of the theme in this story: death, and what happens after. (That's just my personal take on it, however.)
You should definitely read Fighting the Dark, and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Thanks for reading!
