Action-Looking For Stories to Review

I post the review here and on my Instagram page for published reviews only so please be ok with that when requesting a review. My Instagram page is @penspaperanddreams. If you want a shoutout, please include your Instagram.

I don’t evaluate cover art or special art as I feel that’s too subjective.

Genres Accepted: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Mystery and Romance. I have the right to deny any story that I feel I’m unable to give a proper review.

Published: I previously accepted unpublished stories, and I’m now only accepting published stories. I accept limelight, ink, classic and spotlight styles.

Following policy: I follow all authors I review regardless of the score they’re given. My instagram is public, so if you’d like to follow me, you can.

Ratings: I only post public reviews for stories that receive a 8/16 or higher. If it’s lower, I send the review via private message.

2nd Review Request: I only accept second story review requests when posted. Otherwise, stories are only reviewed once.

Story order: I Stories in the order requests are received in the following genre orders (fantasy, action, romance and mystery) I select the oldest request first for each of those categories.

Contest Entries: I will be accepting contest entries in a separate review request category and those will receive priority reading order over non-contest entry stories after the H & V contest ends.

Hi, @Penspaperanddreams1!

Thank you very much for creating this thread, this is very kind of you! Constructive criticism is exactly what I am looking for!

I would only ask you to kindly read 4 chapters of my story as it is a contest entry and I don’t want to mess up the reader engagement. Chapter 4 is a bonus one to see the alternative ending, so you can skip through it very quickly.


If you are interested in reading a story with several mini-games and where CHOICES REALLY MATTER then, please, give my story a try. This is my first story ever but I have put a lot of effort in it and would highly appreciate any feedback! I promise, the story will keep you hooked :blush:

My story details:

Name of story: H & V: Fate
Author: Alex Af
Genre: Thriller
Episodes: 4 (completed)
Summary of story: Young ambitious journalist hunting down a powerful tycoon who has made a fortune based on lies. But who really is a villain here? Choices matter.

Hi @Alex_Af,

Thanks so much for responding and including your story! It sounds amazing and I’m excited to read it but unfortunately, I can only read the first 3 episodes. I have a waiting list for stories and it wouldn’t be fair to the other authors if I read 4 of your episodes and only 3 of theirs. I hope you understand! Please let me know if you still want me to read and review your story. Thanks!

Thank you very much for your reply!

As I said, Chapter 4 is a bonus one to see the alternative ending, so you can skip through it very quickly as you can chose the I am done option straight away. You don’t need to review chapter 4!

Would that be ok with you?

Hi! I would be very happy if you read and review my story.

Story Review For @episode.zayen
Story Title: H & V: Shadows of My Past

My General Review: Everything about this story was fantastic! From the well written scripts to the superb directing, this is hands down one of the best stories I’ve seen on episode.

Story: You play as two different characters and it’s up to you to decide who the real hero is and who the real villain is. I appreciate the complexity and mixture of morals and values that’s been hinted at in the first three episodes. I’m especially interested in seeing how the main characters will interact with each other once more is known. I’m invested in both characters equally and the mixture of current and past storylines is highly appealing.

Choices: There aren’t an abundance of choices but the few that do exist make you feel engaged so that wasn’t a problem for me at all. I honestly forgot that there weren’t many choices because I was so engrossed in the story.

Visuals: Impeccable! This is as smooth as an Episode directed story. I also really liked the constant action and attention to detail. Since this is in the action genre, it matched the pace of the story perfectly.

Language: Well written dialogue with no errors. ‘Nuff said.

Overall Score: Perfect 16/16. If you want a story that’s jam packed with action, assassins and flirtation this is definitely your bet. I would highly recommend this story and I really hope that it does well in the contest!

Thank you so much for your review! I’m glad you’ve enjoyed it!
