On the Continent of Skyhaven, there are only two paths in which a sorcerer could embark on, namely; The path of Light and The path of Darkness.

In a world filled with heroes and villains, the most nefarious practitioner of The path of Darkness was ambushed by more than a thousand sorcerers of the Path of Light.

after a thrilling battle that lasted for more than thirty days, the sorcerers of The path of Light triumphed in the end.

At the moment of his death, a blinding grey object exited his body, before disappearing into the void.

Ten thousand years later, a young boy from a war torn country is reincarnated into the body of a young sorcerer from the continent of Skyhaven.

At that same moment, he suddenly heard a strange sound, followed by the words.

-Technical writing issues. I’m not sure if this is actual translation issues or it’s just not written by someone whose first language is english. Most of the reviews mention that the story needs major editing.

-This is also a very dark story with scenes of extreme violence, graphic sex (in four places), and even rape.

This is a reincarnated into an RPG world story where the main character (MC) is put not in a newborn body but in a dead one. One that belonged to a nobleman that had just happened to murder by his siblings because he might have gotten the throne. The MC gets necromancer system powers and uses this familiar RPG system to level up by absorbing death energy from people he’s killed, mounds of the undead, and other methods he invents. The MC is faced with a family full of people that are intent on backstabbing, poisoning, or murdering him to become the family heir. So of course he has to get them, before they get him by being as dark and conniving as possible.

This is really a dark story where everyone is pretty brutal and evil. There’s lots of intrigue, exposition, and brutality. The RPG mechanics are relatively uncomplex and are shown when the MC gets some XP, levels, and gains stats. But the system is shown throughout the novel consistently and there are a couple of neat uses of spells to kind of auto-gather XP using necromancy

Overall, for me the story didn’t work for a couple of reason: 1) The many technical writing issues. There are errors in almost every paragraph in the story. 2) I’m not a big fan of intrigue and eventually that aspect of the story just became less entertaining. 3) Two of the four graphic sex scenes just seemed so random and unimportant to the story that they were distracting. The last two, while part of the story, are rape. This is the one that put it into dislike for me.

However, if you can get past those issues or you are a big fan of intrigue and dark stories where there is no hero, then you might enjoy this more than I did.

Score: 4 out of 10
