Synopsis

Have you ever wished you exactly knew how to accomplish your dreams? Not feeling the slightest doubt anymore? Being aware at any time how every choice, action and decision of yours affects your future? That's what happened to Jake Wilderth, a procrastinating young man without ambition. When a mysterious silver spaceship, popping out from nowhere, delivered to each Earthling a bracelet containing an AI introducing itself as the Oracle, their destiny changed. From a boring uneventful life Jake began to strive for greatness, treading his Path over the dead bodies of many. What a blessing it would have been if he was the only one profiting of such a gift! But when everyone became equal to face the future, he soon realized no gift comes for free.. Just a warning. Volume 1 sets the atmosphere in a Earth slowly degenerating into chaos and can be considered as a big prologue. It is slow and not as rewarding for the readers than mainstream stories on this website. If you can push through it will be worth it. For some real action you need to wait chap 27. =================================== Discord link: https://discord.gg/d8udP7Q

Hello, shameless review from the Author. I can't give myself full marks as my english is far from perfect. However, i hope you will be able to enjoy this story despite its shortcomings. Here are a few more informations about this novel. I read many webnovels, from eastern/ western fantasy, to apocalypse stories, with System and Video-games sub-genre from time to time. After reading so much, i have developed a vision quite precise of what i'm seeking for in a story. The start of this story is slow, with maybe too many info blocks in the first few chapters, but it will only improve after. Survival, System and Apocalypse are the dominant themes. However, you will find at some point similarities (but very different in the facts) with other webnovels like Devil's Cage, Terror infinity and Ultimate evolution. The difference is that it will only be one aspect of the story. There is one central Romance, no Harem. There will potentially be several love interests in the story, but as in real life we meet people and things happen or not. As a Survival story, there is a Game of Throne/ Walking Dead feel that can't be avoided. Not everyone can survive but the deaths are not distributed like candies either. At last, i attach a lot of importance to coherence. If you notice any incoherences, don't hesitate to point it out. It will be quickly fixed.

Action ✔️ Plot ✔️ Great Characters ✔️ This story has every element to get you hooked. Set in a dystopian world where the inhabitants of earth are transferred to, everyone is left to fend for themselves. Not only do the people have to worry about monsters, the fight for power and survival amongst humans and alien cohabitants requires everyone to watch their backs. However, everyone is equipped with a powerful AI system called the Oracle and it up to the individual how to make the best use of it. The story is very well-written and the plot is quite compact. The start is a bit slow but once the action starts the novel becomes unputdownable. The progression of the character is quite slow if you compare it to other novels of the same genre but that doesn't make it even a tad uninteresting. Each setting is vivid and enjoyable and the story is never a drag. The characters each have a distinct personality. The growth of the characters' personalities border real world people making them lifelike. The chapter length is quite good, and although there is a single release daily, the chapter is a big one. All in all, I really like this novel and would suggest everyone to give it a read. The only complaint that I have to author-san is that he should release more chapters as I cannot have enough of this novel.

Never before has a book made me feel the need to write a review, however this one is different. The writing quality is excellent, surpassing the best Qidian has to offer and is up at the top with the likes of Supreme Magus and The Lord of the Mysteries (it’s been a long time since I’ve had to look up the definition of a word and it is an exciting prospect with this book). The story/world building is intriguing, reminiscent of Terror Infinity in premise but with its own uniqueness which makes it captivating to read. The characters are interesting as the author does his/her best to replicate all the human intricacies. I hope that this review will serve as encouragement for the author and other readers to persevere with this story; the only reason it is not in the top 15 is because not many know of it (surpasses plenty of the garbage up there like My Vampire System for example). I hope you continue to write this book author, for my sake lol.

Not a fan of writing reviews, but since I feel that this novel doesn't have the exposure and support it deserves and the author is sooo nice I decided to share my short humble opinion. First of all the world building is very well made, it has similarities with the ultimate evolution. Nevertheless it's original, has a lot of potential and it's slowly but steadily presented. There's a long introduction delving a lot into the mc's personality and worldview. For some people maybe that's a reason not to read it. For me it wasn't boring at all. I could even empathise with him occasionally. The explanations and building of his personality maybe were were a bit rough and forced in some cases, but it didn't make it unpleasant and the author said he would improve his first chapters so maybe this will not me the case in some weeks. I am not a native speaker, I found some small and not important mistakes, but not many and they didn't make my reading experience bad. All in all I would definitely recommend it! Let's just hope that the author keeps this high release rate and quality :)

This is a great story and is a solid 5/5 till now for me .....also this is my first time writing a serious review that goes to show how much I like this book.....I have tried to break down and review the story elements by myself and here I go— 1)Plot—>Firstly the plot is well thought out and well paced and it is also mostly realistic.The author has tried his best for accommodating the sci-fi aspects of the story which is believable (if you want to believe cuz that is as far as it goes in fictions). 2)Characters—>The characters are mostly likeable and there is heavy character development that is necessary and believable because the genre is ‘apocalypse’.Most people change when their survival is threatened but it cannot be abrupt and has to have a trigger and a period of change, this is something that the author has shown.Not all characters are supposed to be black and white and they have to be dynamic and changing which happens in this story and this is a plus for me. 3) System——>Finally the major tag that is very popular and common nowadays,’system’ is done right here .It does not spoon feed neither is it very vague,also people dont awaken skills out of thin air (at least it hasn’t happened yet). All I have are praises for the book and small things in some chapter that I feel can be improved or I don’t understand are mostly in the comments so I think this book is only going to get better..

It is an amazing book from where I am at Chapter 32, but I will guarantee you that this book will take thousands of chapters to finish unless author picks up the pace. It is a good book but for how I can see it develop is not for me when it is taking a long time to progress.

Firstly I have to mention that this is a great novel with an intresting concept. The mc is not cliche and has a real personality and furthermore he is not flawless. He is an introvert but in reality he wants to socialise with others. _Writing Quality_ The writing quality is pretty good and there are very few mistakes (I am not an englsih native speaker so you probably will find more than I though). _Stability of Updating_ The author posts a day, but sometimes he misses a day but makes up for it in the later days. _Story Developpment_ It has to be said that this is a slow story but as soon as he ~Spoiler~ enters the new world the progress is normal. It is clear that the author has an idea for the plot and the story follows a clear "path" _Character Design_ The characters are all interesting and have their own flaws. Even though you can guess the personality of a character, there are some plot twists which seem understandebal but unexpected. ~Spoiler~ Additionally you can see how the MC fights his asocial personality and socalises more and more -World Backround_ The world has a clear structure and there is nothing that happens, that seems totally random. The wolrd is furthermore intresting and you want to know more abou it. All in all it is a fun read and you should give it a try. [At this point the story reached 73 chapters so far and things can change and this review would be inaccurate] I have to remind you that this is my first review so please do not blame me to much if you dont like it

Usually I dont write reviews but for this book I will make an exception. I my opinion this is easily one of the top 5 novels on this site it is just that good and I am not an easy one to please in that aspect since I am usually very critical of original novels but not in this case. I am always longing for a new chapter and get dissapointed if there is no chapter that day. This is also easily the Best apocalyps novel I have ever read while I dont usually like apocalyps novels while being one this one doesnt feel like one for some reason which is a big plus for me. But all in all I just want to reccomend this book to everyone reasing this review and say to the author: Keep up the good work!

Fantastic Story. I'm Not a spam bot, this really is a LN worth 5 stars. It is a cultivation SciFi LN. It starts of slow at first, but picks up later on in the chapters. Very immersive world and story line. All LNs have plot-armor. The plot armor does NOT seem to be all that heavy in this LN. This one just doesn't have a huge amount of it which is very good. It is a fun read. I know I haven't said much about the LN. The problem is that I feel if I say anything about at all it will be filled with a lot of Spoilers and this story is to good to spoil it for others. HOWEVER *** SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS *** Yes it is SciFi to the point of a Universe filled with awesome aliens. There are alien bloodlines in this LN that can be used to enhance the different characters in the LN.

I wanna share how empty I feel at the moment. This novel is one of the most unique, logical and intresting works you can find. I’ve left for a while to let it accumulate chapters as I don’t like to read 1 or 2 chapters at a time. However, it has come to my attention that the novel has not been updating for quite a while. I was hoping this would be temporary and I would see more chapters but day after day passed and I could no longer endure not writing this comment. Does anyone know the problem? Is the author caught up with some issues? I’ve looked into the latest chapter released yet I have been unable to find an answer in the author’s comments.

This is a great novel that deserves more recognition. I don’t like the concept of systems because it promotes lazy writing, giving authors an excuse to get away with plot holes by using an AI cheat device. This novel is intriguing enough that I can let it slide. I feel that this novel should be in the top 10, it’s a lot better than the #1 rank My Vampire System. I am currently 175 chapters in, and so far the writing quality is above average. You get a good sense of what the world looks like thru the vivid descriptions, without being verbose. No glaring spelling/grammar mistakes. I read other reviewers saying that author corrects any spelling and grammar mistakes, which is probably why I didn’t find any. Author pays attention to writing quality and it shows. The pace is a bit slow, but good novels take time to mature. World development is excellent and the concept is very interesting; random chunks of many different worlds are snatched up by an all powerful entity and stitched together to form a single universe, complete with all types of human and alien species and ecosystems. The new inhabitants of this world become players in what seems like a ‘survival of the fittest’ type game, every entity having an oracle system that predicts the future and guides them upon their chosen path. But it seems there isn’t just one of these worlds, there are many, each with their own ‘boss’. Not much is revealed yet, but judging from the story so far, I see great potential. Character development is good so far. The characters actually evolve (not just the MC), and they learn from their mistakes and constantly improve themselves (or die). The character interactions aren’t forced and seem realistic enough, each character has a distinct personality and their own motives. This is a refreshing change from the usual dumb robotic characters you see in other system novels. Even the system itself could possibly show up as as real characters later on. I don’t factor stability updates into my ratings, I understand that quality novels take time to write. I rather the author release 1 chapter a day of good quality writing instead of pumping out trash.

The fact that the author is allowed to have a personal life should be considered a crime against humanity. As much as I enjoy this novel, the slow update rate is soon to be my bane of existence. Requesting ally support to capture author and form him to write in a basement, no food if no new updates.

This novel was so good I created a webnovel account just so I can read more. Anyway slow start but it shows the emotions of what a real person would do and built up from there. Good system not like some where all stats are equal but some worth more than others because it’s true some stats are harder to raise and better than others. Great world building he shows rather than tells which is in my opinion the right way because if the character did not know about something why should we know about it. Cliff hangers well the author knows when it’s good or bad to put them in like he did near the ending of the first ordeal (you will know when you there) but he didn’t just post a chapter he waited a extra day then posted both in one day much better than some authors that don’t care about our feelings :) Character development well all I have to say is it’s the best I’ve seen other except when he got his first kill in the (you will know when you get there) and touched (it) it kind of felt forced so that Jake could become bolder but it was alright. Plot well become stronger so you can become lazy (yeah lazy you will understand if you read the first volume). Grammar well better than most I’ve seen and I’ve seen a lot so don’t worry about grammar messing with the story. Anyway just wanted to leave this review for my favorite author and book I haven’t seen such a good book that I even created a webnovel account just to read it (didn’t even do that for birth of the demonic sword). Well good day folks and jolly ho thank for reading this review.
