A young man dies and is offered to be revived by a grim reaper in exchange for servitude. Responsibilities typically include the fight against abominable horrors, human or otherwise. However, this young man already has a few problems of his own... such as crippling shyness.

The setting of the story is a modern fantasy world called Eleg, which is culturally and technologically similar to present day Earth in many ways, yet also divergent in many others. It's not an alternate timeline, as Eleg has its own geography and political systems, but there are still some historical parallels.

Ok, to make things simple, THIS SHIT IS THE REAL DEAL!!!! A TOP TIER WORK!!!


–The story is deep and intresting, a nice blend of action, reflexion, comedy, mystery. The story will last for a long time. To some people the beginning may be a bit slow, but I think the pace is (near) perfect!!

–The worldbuilding is very complete with history, geography, culture, and of course some supernatural rules. By the way, at the beginning you may think the story takes place in our world, but that is not the case.


–The characters are ALIVE!!! No, seriously, the characters are deep, and I’m not just talking about the mc. All characters, good or bad, involved with him have a clear personnality, it is simply amazing.

–The mc himself is gold (or in this case, iron, but iron of the highest grade). I usually don’t like shy wimpy characters, but this one, I’m fond of him!!! And watching him grow is a real pleasure!! 

–The interactions between reapers and servants is just EXCELLENT!!!


Just read it, accompany Hector and Garovel in their adventures, watch Hector grow, appreciate tthe good (and even the bad) people they encounter on their way. 


This story is an incredible journey!!!

  • Overall Score

Shouldn't have any less than 4.5 stars

This work is wonderful. I have read up until chapter 39 and  I only started yesterday night. That tell you


1) I have a lot of time on my hands

2) This is some good stuff


The author of this work is intelligent. He drops little bread crumbs and they seem unimportant at the moment until it comes to bite the mc in the         . 


Glad i finally decided to read this. I originally put it off because I didn't want to read anything set in presentdayish settings unless it was VR. I was terribly wrong. I was only bored enough to read it yesterday and I have never been happier.


I'll certainly visit the author's site as well to give him/her  a review (s)he can see. :D

This story...this fucking story...SMH

This story should be listed in the dictionary as a paragon of Awesome.

The characters are deep and well developed with lively interactions. The interactions can give Blackthorne, which is a great story in case you haven’t read it yet, a run for its money

The grammar is practically impeccable.

The story is wonderfully original and created epic-ally. You can really get the feeling that the world is large  with plenty of things to learn and explore.

Frost, the author, writes in a professional manner. This is a story you would expect to be displayed on shelf.

I honestly believe that it is one of the best WNs around.

This story is simply awesome. Everything is perfect. The setting is inredible and 

very creative (no VRMMORPG, no xianxi, no rpg fantasy :D) and the world is very 

lively. The characters are great designed although I believe that not everybody

will like the MC (I do!).

This story is better than many professional stories and I would buy it

Excellent, truly great and a must read. READ IT.

K ive read it all, and its literally at the level of a first class writer. I saw someone give it a HALF star and almost lost my shit there... please rate the story on the STORY, not that it took 12 hours to get it all out, because hey, you don't know that the format the author has it in makes it hard to copy,( its page by page) and it doesn't make much difference, unless you read it all in the four hours until the next 50 chapter post.
