Synopsis: As a child, Arianna was heiress to the Devillian throne until one day the Elder Gods tore her away from her loved ones. Believing that Arianna had perished, her childhood friend Nalithor Vraelimir vowed that he would find a way to avenge her death. However, unbeknownst to the people of the Vorpmasian Empire, their princess was not dead.

Death would have been too easy for Arianna. The Elders had other things in store for someone that had angered them as she had.

Two hundred years later, in a world ruled by gods and plagued by monstrosities known as Chaos Beasts, the Vorpmasian Empire has allied with the fledgling Beshulthien Empire. Their desire is to protect the whole of their world, Avrirsa, from the Exiled Gods and their monstrous pets.

Nalithor, now an adult Incubus, has been given a heavy burden by the Elders he hates. He must now fulfill the role of God of Balance by maintaining the greater good and getting the Middle and Upper Gods under control. The Middle and Upper Gods, growing complacent in their duties, began seeking out mortal playthings instead of attending their Elders–given duties.

Will the Empires be able to maintain their shaky alliance? Will Nalithor be able to bring the deities under control? Or will the reemergence of a forgotten nation and a familiar face turn everything on its head?

I would say she's attractive, yes. This is the protagonist (in the mask) and her twin brother.

"Who" she is is eluded to in the prologue. I don't exactly want to spoil that here.

It's just the art style, not moe type, older shoujo manga has this kind of style

My art style is definitely influenced heavily by older shoujo manga. Which is a little strange since I preferred reading shonen for the most part.

Considering whose opinion it is I think you shouldn't even pay any attention

Hmm, I see. Thanks for the advice. I'm not that familiar with users on this board yet.

I take comments like that with a grain (or pound) of salt. I know my work isn't for everyone - whether it's my art or my writing.

Constructive criticism is another matter entirely of course.

As the author, I'm probably biased about that but I guess I'll try to answer anyway. Nothing is ever truly original but I do think my story is at least different. lol

To start off with, Of Astral and Umbral is a Dark Fantasy/Romance that follows gods/demigods instead of mortals. Aside from the prologue, everything is written in first person.

I elaborate on usual tropes by expressing the experience, actions, and perspective of deities by making them physical beings instead of intangible ones. I try to tackle what a world would be like if deities didn't just sit up on some cloud banging their slaves (or each other) all day.

TL;DR Version - I try to take an approach to deities and demigod/esses that I haven't seen done before.
