    For a smut book, there is a surprising quality to it! I don’t usually read these books, but seeing as it was particularly high in the charts I decided to give it a try. Although the book falls in line to the standards of such a plot line (every single woman is fair game), the quality of writing and shockingly deep world building compelled me to read more. Just the mere concept of Awakened powers can stoke the readers imagination and have an idea of the world outside the village. If… the story gets taken out of the village, which I hope will happen. Now, all that is needed is to introduce different cultures, meet new people and for the love of god not present everyone in the world as the same sex-driven society. Such a society just won’t be enjoyable to read no matter what. As for the characters themselves: all of them have quite the… distinct personalities. However, atleast they’re fleshed out enough to know who is who without having to name them. Though my greatest pet peeve is the authors frequent use of modern terms, like ‘plastic bucket’. I don’t know about the history of the world, but I certainly refuse to believe such a primitive society had developed something as complicated as ‘plastic’. Gotta find something else to use to describe the material of an item, xD. Another problem I have with it is the potential hypocritical nature of the MC and the state of men as a whole in this world. It was made increasingly apparent that men in this world is somewhat incapable…? Like they can only get it up after like 5-10 minutes of foreplay and last for less. Author describes all of them to be just terrible at sex, even the older generation based on how the older woman MC had sex with enjoyed their time with him… Uhh… hopefully its only in this village right?? Then there is the hypocritical nature of the MC. Or rather, the very much apparent one where he wants to have sex with other women but no man touches his women. While it is understandable, it’s just bad writing to expect him to satisfy and love all the women he had sex with and expect no one else to ’touch’ his ‘property’. Just 70 ch in and he already ‘enjoyed’ like 8 girls. Like cmon, be realistic. Anyway, good potential, hopefullly won’t degenerate into something unreadable after the reveal of his awakening.

    Good plot, terrible execution. Meant to be a warrior in a world where magic reigns supreme, instead got an MC which focuses too heavily on his magical aspects. His personality ain’t so fun to sit through either. God gave him a crazy affinity which essentially permanately destroys anything it touches (slowly eats the world) and gave him control over beings which does the same thing, but like an endless army of them. Then, after that, story goes down from there. MC realizes that he could potentially be an enemy of literally all things living so he became nihilistic and apathetic. Killing innocents, killing children (Mage children obv) and doing anything to further his pursuit of power. He summons those monsters to get more powerful by absorbing the strongest one and then, without caring about the consequences, allows the rest of the weaker ones to just rampage around, leaving other people to clean his mess. Those monsters don’t care about what they be killing either, so naturally a bunch of villages with normal families also just get turned into dust. He ain’t shy in throwing the people who has no beef with him (and even somewhat help him) under the bus if they slightly do anything wrong or inconvenience him. Almost Reverened Insanity-ish but worse since such a personality switch was completely unwarranted, illogical and completely pathetic. I mean, while imprisoned, he taught someone how to be strong and such, but whilst fleeing from the Kingdom, he had to kill him to keep his identity a secret because he recognized him?? What? Why introduce him all together? To change the main characters personality to an unfeeling and uninteresting robot? (There is more to it but if you got to this part then you’ll know what I’m talking about) Honestly it is such a terrible excuse that after seeing no changes later on, as well as the quality of writing taking a dive (often repeating and worthless paragraphs) I decided to just drop the book. Going off in a tangent; don’t get me started on the personality on some of these mages either, despite the book saying otherwise, they DO feel like a hive mind - literally no human qualities on some of these guys, just feels like robots in general. I wish there was some form of rivalry or something with the Magic academy, or more Mage companions that sympathize with the warrior cause (or any new companions in general). Or anything to make the world feel more alive, but no we’re stuck with like 6 people, the rest he just kills off or does not care about them in general. Naturally I did not cover the entire book, and I did not want to either. I wanted readers to know what they’re getting into. This is not a valiant, brave sword man who would shoulder the pressure of the Magic world so that warriors before him may get stronger. But a cold, unfeeling, unholy Summoner, which so happens to have a pretty sword and strong body that constantly brings out an army of plot devices and throws the main idea of the story out the window cause the author himself doesn’t know where to take it. Perhaps the author wanted to introduce plot devices to make the story interesting, perhaps not. I could atleast understand the thinking in some of these decisions, but the story is just all over the place. I personally can’t recommend someone spending money on this book unless you dont mind the MC being a pseudo Calamity Mage with strange applications of Magic and the sword - with the occasional exaggerated panic attacks when he kills something with the slightest bit of significance, of course.

    Writing and plot is good, but this ‘war’ lasted for too long - could barely pay attention towards the end… Well atleast it ain’t ‘Mech Touch’ level of pacing xD

    This time, it was not Rey who responded to him, but one of the two women, the paladin. "We will be rolling for equipment drops and skill book drops impartially. Got it?"

    Its already been like what 7-8 months i guess? So she either is like 17 rn or close to 17

    After spending an ungodly amount of time undressing Linde, Berengar finally got her onto his bed, where the two spent the night together, enjoying each other's warm embrace. Despite being already pregnant, Berengar tried his best to give her another child that night. After a night filled with passionate lovemaking, the two finally fell asleep early in the morning. It would not be for several hours before they awoke once more and began their daily routines.

    Ya i left about that time aswell. It became something completely different and unbearable to read tbh.

    The main purpose was to speed up the protagonist's training by removing his limiter, thus I didn't really add any trial. This lazy me did it so that I could finish the novel faster, as at that point I was already bored of the novel.
