Following it, various extraterrestrial life forms come into contact with the human species. People who are affected by these energies, called the Third Eye, develop mysterious powers.

However. the prowess given by Absolute Solitude results in endless battles for Minoru...

The story is about a 16 year old boy who is granted the power of a defensive shield from an orb that falls from space. The orbs "attach" themselves to their host by entering their bodies. They are classified as Jet Orbs and Red Orbs. Jet Orbs are black, and the people who have these orbs created an organization that hunt down and defeat humans with the Red orbs. The reason for this is because the humans with Red orbs gain an intense thirst for bloodlust. The powers that people get from these orbs all differ, based on the host's memories and desires.

"The Isolator: Realization of Absolute Solitude," or "Zettai Naru Isolator," in Japanese, is the third published work, of Reki Kawahara. Like SAO before it, it was also a web-novel, that he decided to turn into a book.
This work is amazing. Even as an avid SAO and AW fan, I have to admit that it is thirty times better, than the previous works by Kawahara. It kept me interested from the moment I started reading, until the current point (I'm on page 119, as of right now), and--since it doesn't have an anime yet--was full of surprises. Truthfully, I believe that if it recieved an read more

(I have just finished the fourth volume of the series, which at the time of this review, is also the latest one published in both Japan and abroad.)

Reki Kawahara, the writer of the (in)famous “Sword Art Online” light novel series, has been a polarizing figure in the minds of many anime and light novel fans alike. While he undoubtedly has very good premises, they are often marred by poor execution and writing, which has made Kawahara notorious.

But nowadays, more and more people are beginning to see that Kawahara has begun to show great improvement in his more recent works. For instance, his reboot of read more

As someone who likes to read novels, this was a big let down, one that may have put me off of light novels.

Story - 5
The story was pretty... Meh. It didn't interest me at all, and in all honesty, it had bored me till the very end. It was filled with anime clichés and things like that. I didn't enjoy the characters very much either.

Art - 8
The artwork is probably one of the only things I liked about this novel. It was pretty good for light novel art, and it kept to a style that I personally enjoy. Not much is to be said read more
