Synopsis:

A virtual underground game that has no protection. Lurking with players who seek power, fortune and survival. Kieran chose to enter this VRMMORPG game without hesitation because he knows this is his only way out from death. Can he escape death in real life or dying via the game?


Personal Review:

In this novel, the MC has to travel across different story worlds and  solve quest lines and complete missions in order to increase his strength. What makes this novel stand out for me is the fact that those story worlds are not lifted from existing movies/stories, rather they are original creations of the author. This is in direct contrast to other novels such as Ultimate Evolution and Terror Infinity which directly take material from existing movies/stories and have their characters inserted directly into those worlds.

Synopsis:

This is a fantasy story set in a world where mysterious spiritual beings known as Gu exist. Humans that have learned to harness this power are called Gu Masters. The story starts with the MC Fang Yuan, a demonic Gu Master, being chased down by individuals from the righteous sect. With no way out, he is forced to use his mysterious Gu, the Spring Autumn Cicada. He is transported back 500 years into the past during his teenage days.


Personal Review:

Reverend Insanity is very similar to Warlock of the Magus World. In both these novels, the main characters’ ultimate goal is immortality and both MCs are villains who are coldblooded enough to the point where they are willing to sacrifice anyone and everyone in order to achieve their goals. The main highlight of this novel for me is the worldbuilding and lore of the story. The side stories detailing the creation mythos of the novel are quite interesting even by themselves and serve as both an introduction to the various strange Gu that exist in the world, as well as serving as a cautionary tale for storyline characters about the dangers of these Gu. Another thing I like about the novel is the fact that the MC is extremely meticulous and detailed in his planning, but is still capable of adjusting on the fly should any unexpected events pop up.

Synopsis:

Series of short snippets detailing the love story of our protagonist.


Personal Review:

This is a short and fluffy romantic comedy that I would recommend to fans of the genre.

 

There are some emotional segments in the story that really help build up love and appreciation of the characters, while still keeping the general tone of the story happy, hopeful, and upbeat despite the problems the characters encounter.

Synopsis:

Fang Ming, a scientist in a futuristic world, dies and reincarnates into a medieval world of fantasy. His trusty AI chip implant is somehow sent together with him, and thus starts his quest for immortality.


Personal Review:

This is one of the few novels I’ve read that actually has a ruthless, and outright villainous MC. He is deeply obsessed with immortality and will stop at nothing in order to achieve his goal, even if it means dooming everyone else. The main highlight of this novel for me is the lack of plot armor and OP powerups that most MCs have. Leylin can only rely on his wits and schemes in order to get ahead in this world, because he is frankly not the most talented nor the most well off in the new world. That is why it is always exciting to see how the MC can overcome his problems, as the novel leaves hints behind what he is plotting but only reveals everything at the end of the arc. This builds up a sense of mystery and suspense for the readers as they try to guess how the MC will weasel his way out of the predicament he finds himself in. The worldbuilding and lore in this story is also very detailed and I feel there are no major plot holes in the story.
