Reborn: Apocalypse (A LitRPG/Wuxia Story)(Volume 1)

If you could turn back the clock and fix all the mistakes you ever made, would you?

From the author of the award-winning Web-novel 'Reborn: Evolving From Nothing' comes the tale of Micheal Care, a swordsman that could only be considered a middling warrior in Humanity's Last Army.

Micheal's answer to that question would be quite simple.

Yes. A million times yes.

Humanity has fallen, killed by stronger races of beings after being warped away to a new reality, the mystical 7 Layers.

Humanity's goal had been simple. Make it through all 7 Layers and reach Heaven.

Humanity failed.

Humanity died.

Micheal Care's memories have been transported back into his past self thanks to a magical Artifact he found by chance.

He is no chosen savior. He is no divinely picked hero.

Can he change the future? Can he catch up to the mightiest warriors of humanity and surpass them?


My Opinion: 692 pages, $4.95, Available on Kindle Unlimited

This story has a big following online where there are many more chapters to the story than are in the 1st volume. It is really similar to Towers of Heaven in both premise and basic content. It’s not a copy or anything but both use a common setup of humanity failing sometime in the future to superior forces and the main character (MC) traveling back in time and using his foreknowledge of events to come to become overpowered and as he tries to save humanity. Both also have this RPG apocalypse setting where people fight more powerful monsters as they ascend levels with the ultimate goal of beating the big bad at the top.

However, the premise is where the two diverge, Reborn: Apocalypse has an original story with original dungeon levels. In particular the story uses a point driven RPG system to advance character power progression where people can buy a variety of fantasy and sci-fi powers. The story leans more towards Wuxia/Cultivation for the main character’s powers in particular. I actually like the progression mechanics and action a bit more in this story.

Overall, it’s a fun action oriented slice of life adventure. There is monster fighting, cultivation, OP MC, and a RPG apocalypse. I really liked it.

Score: 7.8 out of 10
