Reviews from NU [snippets]
It is a great Kingdom Building, Sci-FY, Technological Development, Fantasy, Fiction, Drama Novel.
This novel is quite similar to the infamous RTW. But both books are different in essence.
RTW (release the witch) looks like a Kingdom Building novel whereas it is actually a juvenile's world revolution. RTW has a simple linear story line.
In contrast, SOTD (Sword of Day-breaker/Dawn) is both kingdom building and some sort of world revolution. At first glance this book looks like a simple story but later on this become much more complex.
The world structure of the novel is different from Earth's world. So MC cannot implement his Earth knowledge & technology blindly in this world. MC just can't copy paste everything. What he can do is to utilize IDEA or CONCEPT of different sectors. He can improvise things at best.
What I most like that MC never underestimate this world's Indigenous People. He tries to use various people's talent properly & effectively. MC is clever & smart. He knows very well that he is neither omnipotent nor center of the world. He is a simple catalyst for changes.
Author writes very creatively & excellently about the technological creativity & innovation, the transition from Earth technology to Magical technology and also implementation this technology to this world and the changes & consequences of this changes.
The author describe very well about people resistant to new changes, ideas and social changes.
The other characters are memorable and well developed. There are a few 'genius' characters who turn his ideas into reality and even improve upon them quite a bit. The antagonists are quite smart. Their actions are more or less logical and they actually win some of the time.
TL;DR An awesome, must read, kingdom building, tech building, political and action novel with a lot happening and a well written cast of characters
