Original ONGOING Action Adventure Fantasy Romance Harem Magic Supernatural

Anton Thorn died in an incident of his own creation, his body torn and shredded to pieces.

Yet death and eternal rest did not await him. Gods, from another world, took his soul along many others to their world to fight an overwhelming and impossible foe.

By chance and oversight his soul was missed by the gods, his soul destined to remain in limbo and torment for all eterinity. A few weak and desperate gods took a chance with him and brought him through to their world.

Now sent far away from the battle, in his original body, to a small village in the husk of a dead kingdom. It is now up to him to restore the Kingdom and fight off anything that would threaten him or those he loves; be they human, beast, monster or hero.

Excellent Story - A Must Follow

This is a fascinating rendition of the popular "transported/reincarnated" story template. As the synopsis denotes, the MC is transported separately from a group of souls that died during a busing accident(?). Potential readers, please be advised that it does not follow the "LitRPG" style of game windows and all that. However, it doesn't suffer in the slightest. I'd recommend you pick up this work. Few chapters, but their lengths are substantial.

 

After some typical god meeting shenanigans, he wakes up in the middle of a town that is currently being swarmed by goblin-esque creatures. From there, it's a fast paced headlong dive into the state of affairs for the town that is on the brink of ruin. 

 

This in itself (besides the sheer quality of the writing) was what hooked me. While there is a typical "summoning" that our MC missed, we get to stay away from the stereotypical political and training issues of being summoned and we instead are thrust into a more basebuilding plot  that's centered around a localized community vs. monsters defense scenario. I love it. All the while, you still stay true to advancing the MC and giving him bursts of insight to increase his control and understanding of the magic he was gifted by the gods.  

 

Your grammar, diction, and sentence structure are all excellent besides some occasional typos and punctuation misses. There is one habit of yours that I should comment on, ( it's one that lots of authors on the site are guilty of) and that would be the tendency to split up dialogue from supporting actions. I understand the need to separate dialogue of course in certain cases, but when you do it too much, it produces a typewriter style of reading for the audience. If you want an example, look towards the beginning of Chapter 8. It's a stylistic thing too of course, but I'd recommend being more intentional with your paragraph construction as it possesses better reading flow and would be easier on your readers. The only reason I bother mentioning it is because you're a good enough author that I can only recommend polishing tweaks.

 

The last thing I want to comment on is how much of a love/hate relationship I have with how much you keep us in the dark about characters' back story(*cough*Verona and Jeffrey*cough*). After all the times I've been shot in the heart by authors on this site when it comes to romance, I can't help but imagine the worst case scenario until everything has been explicitly fleshed out.  This is just a personal aside, and it has no bearing on my rating. Otherwise, I applaud the suspense as it adds a lot to the story.

 

Here's to hoping that you can continue to write regularly as I am certainly going to be following your tale!

Great Story, just want more chapters now

A great story with pretty good world building, and an alright cast of characters.

Style- Nothing about the style is really annoying to me here, so 5/5. I don't really judge this section unless author is doing something annoying.

 

Story- The story itself is a little typical-ish? Reincarnation-> gifted powers by gods-> help people. Nothing really new here, but not going to fault the author for going with a tried and true method. His pacing of the story is pretty amazing though, as so far there has never been a moment where I'm thinking "Just get on with it already". He also handles the world building inside his story very well, leaving me wanting to know more about whats going on around his character in their world. Also decently builds a town setting. 5/5.

 

Grammar- There are a few errors every now and then throughout the chapters, but chapters are also longer then most RRL novels by quite a bit, as they get around 3-5k words a chapter. Nothing really big to hit on, author has a pretty good mastery of the language. 4.5/5

 

Characters- Characters here are where the story falls a little flat. Our main character was presented in a rather mysterious way in the beginning without you really knowing about him, outside of he used to be "Somebody" in a gang, which he then got demolished. Dies->Reincarnates->Becomes powerful->adapts very quickly to life. Our MC adapts a bit too quickly to the world he is thrust in, but that's bearable. What's not bearable is the way the village reacts to his arrival and how they handled themselves before it. The villagers are passed off as medieval peasants with a lack of understanding of things that the MC knows, but they are woefully lacking in most about everything. MC just gives orders left and right to the villagers, which he sorta can because he is a powerful mage, but he also trumps them in knowledge about things that weren't really pertinent to him in his former life. Such as building walls, scouting, fighting tactics with melee weapons, etc.  

The main cast of characters are also a little one sided in terms of emotions/motivation, but I think the author is working on correcting this in more recent chapters, especially with the arrival of Kal. Jeff becomes a war leader, somehow, with very little practice in the art of war outside of being big and strong looking. Verona attaches herself a little too quickly to Anton, and quickly becomes his side piece character and listens to everything he says. Admiration and trust goes a long way here with her though, which Anton quickly develops with her, but sometimes their relationship feels a bit too rushed. 

 

Overall- I think the story is a strong 5/5 by comparison to most RRL stories I've read, and while the author drops the ball on characters a bit in the beginning, he is learning how to weave the characters better into the story now.

If you've read the Daniel Black stuff, you'll like this fic.

 The premise of the story is another transported to another world. The MC has the typical unlimited potential to work magic. For me the story is an okay read, or average. The setting is really interesting, the situation the mc is thrown into while not unique is still interesting. The author could use an editor, as there are many words that do not fit into context, but were not caught by auto correct because the filler words are actual words, just like i said taken out of context.

I do however have three strong gripes with the story overall. 1, the connection to the gods is very sketchy, and the first couple of chapters are a little hard to follow, and in general uninteresting. 2, after one display of power, nearly killing himself in the process, the villagers follow the mc with stunning devotion. It's clear that he has very little to no grasp over magic, and has just about no memories about anything. Yet a group of 1000 people follow him, about 9.9/10 of them blindingly. The MC has some sound ideas, but to bumpkin villagers who only know farming, how would they know a good idea that the mc offers from a bad idea? The MC almost kills a dozen villagers with his magic, and it's not even addressed by the villagers, excuse me?!?! My third gripe is the characters. They're all flat. Jeff "trains the people how to fight" excuse me, a guy who has been in "a few scraps" is teaching people how to kill how to use a pitchfork or spear to fight? And he does a damn good job of it! WTF! The MC is rescued by a girl. Okay, but for reasons, she now lives in his room, and travels by his side for everything. Uhhh what? The MC talks with the village chief about people doing something productive for the village, and she literally does nothing. She trains with a spear in the mornings, and just recently started to do so. The MC refers to her as being the first real guard the village has seen in years. Yeah okay, keep thinking with your dick. The MC jumps straight into the defense of the city, and doesn't have a personality. He's just a person that goes along with situations, a person who describes himself as a loner, and is then a leader, and feels natural in 2 days. The village is too unrealistic for me, and that laddies and gentleman is what grinds my gears.

Definitely a must read. Time well spent.

WHY THE HELL ISN'T THIS NOVEL IN THE TOP 10???

Now I won't try to be an expert at reviewing but I feel I must let all my fellow readers know what they're missing on? 

Style: Nothing wrong with it. Won't irritate you. 

 

Story: It isn't slice of life. It doesn't have any blatant plot holes. Basically, you won't really find a fault unless you go not picking. 

 

Grammar: A few typos here and there. It's not as good as professional work but it isn't something to be wary of. 

 

Character: The best thing about this fiction. All feel real, even the sidekicks and the villains. 

 

Now, coming to what may/may not persuade you to start reading this fiction. 

 

Romance: Not sudden and forced. As real as it can be in a fantasy world. 

 

Harem: It isn't a harem to be honest. It's a threesome. It's not rushed or sudden. I know a lot of the readers don't like the harem bit in novels but trust me, this one won't irritate you.

 

MC: Not a wimp. Not a psychopath. Not someone with trust issues. Not one with a tragic past. Not a NEET. Not a playboy. Not an overthinker. Not dense. Not a gary-stu. 

 

So all clear :) 

 

Villains: Don't look down on the MC for no reason. They're more or less logical and they're not so easy to deal with. 

 

What are you not going to find in this novel: No God Mode. No NTR. No major plot twists. No hypocrisy. No hormonal imbalance. 

 

Why should you read? 

Because it is a long fiction which is yet being updated regularly. If you like fantasy, you should probably get drawn into reading it. For the romance lovers out there, there is romance. It's not wish fulfillment. It's just a part of the story but it has sufficient screen time. The harem card has been smartly played. The characters are not annoying or bland. The action is decent and substantial. The world building is in progress. 

 

So, if you're someone who reads a lot on RRL, this story won't disappoint you. It keeps getting better as the story progresses. 

 

I don't think any novel deserves 5/5 cause there is no perfect novel out there but I really wish to help the writer get more recognition so I have given it a 5/5.

I've dropped the story after Chapter 11. Chapter 1 with the introduction was fine/good and made me interested, everything after went downhill. Honestly, the author has ok grammar and sentence structuring. Although sometimes it can get annoying when you've read "allot" a lot of times.

Spoilers up till Chapter 11, personal opinion. Super honest. 

No my real gripe is that I couldn't enjoy the story enough to continue reading. Too many flaws. Most issues for me are story related:

  • At some point the MC is the new leader and it's not explained why the new guy (MC) that randomly appeared is in charge of the village. They know nothing about the guy except he has 0 memories and he is supposedly a mage. Why, would you put him in charge? Someone would need to earn leadership, it's not freely given. Either through respect, force, etcetera. No, casting 1 spell isn't enough to earn leadership. They don't know if the guy is even a fine leader, they only know he can cast spells.
  • The main character shouldn't just accept his new position either. If someone randomly hands it over to you, shouldn't you feel wary if there's any catch? Why give the position in the first place to him and why does he not ask why it's given to him?
  • The romance feels forced. The female character with silver hair randomly appears and starts following him. And from one point to another, suddenly she's stuck with him and he's just ok with it. There's no in-between, there is zero build up and no reasoning given why both are fine with it up till this point.
  • The antagonist I read is 100% delusional and 100% evil. There is no real motive here other than greed for power. If you read american comics such as Batman or Spiderman etcetera. Usually the antagonists have better fleshed out stories than the main character themselves. Nope, not this guy. He started a cult and we don't even know how he managed to make people believe in him. Sure, when an outsider looks at a cult, it's obvious it is a cult and they're doing lots of weird stuff.. Whereas the people inside the cult aren't aware of it. But the way this cult is being run, he's not even remotely smart and I don't even get why everyone is following him.
  • All characters are flat. We barely know anything about anyone other than the MC and we even don't know much about the MC himself. Almost no character building. There's only power building and low-key levelling I suppose.
  • There is no mentioning of any cultural differences which you would think there are in a different country/world/fantasy etc.
  • Informal speech is being used, a lot. In situations where it doesn't make much sense.

As you can see what I'm pointing at. I need to jump through too many hoops in order to enjoy the story. Chapter 1 was fine and everything went downhill afterwards. No world-building, no character-building, flat characters. There are too many flaws in the way the story is currently structured.

Honestly I'm only pointing out the bad stuff so I suppose I'm biased. The story is somewhat enjoyable to read, interesting stuff happens and the story setting is interesting (which was the whole reason I started reading). You'll naturally be wanting to know what happens in the next chapter. But honestly, it's not really that good of a story as I pointed out before during my rant. Sorry for ranting guys :-P

Take all of the transmitigated by gods to a new world stories you know, throw them away and read this one instead. Interesting characters who have more than a paper-thin personality make it a delightful read and the crescendos the storyline builds up to are resolved satisfactorily in almost every way. 

Without spoilers, the magic system is a fresh of fresh air in terms of its origin, uses and mechanisms. Town-building aspects are also very welcome! 

Keep up the good work :)

Extremely enjoyable

This story is truly enjoyable.  The character interaction and how they react in certain situations is really good.  One of my favorite things is how Anton and Verona's love and developed and consummated.  I get tired of reading 50 chapters of stumbling bumbling love between two (or more) people.  I can only take so many tripping into boob fondles without it going any farther before I go mad.  Their relationship seems to be developing quite well. 

Also, I am enjoying the magic system.  Didn't start off incredibly OP but it is developing at a nice pace. 

Can't wait for more.

Loving the story and the characters! Although in the beginning Anton has a rather laid-back reaction to what seemed to be murder/monsters in the beginning, like how he wanted to disect a demi-human figure (AKA Goblin.) with no remorse or even disgust, despite being in a modern world before this. Hoping to see more from you soon!
