A Gentleman's Curse

A Gentleman's Curse

by Vistiel

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity

 Living a normal, content blue-collar life in the States, MC hadn't expected his situation to change for a long time. When his soul is stripped of his body, however, his plans were thrown out the window. Thrown into a new world with regrets and the memories of a life that is no longer his, he can either embrace this new environment of magic and monsters, striving to make a new life here using his old knowledge, or suffocate under his past.



Hey! Author here. Chapters post every other week and are anywhere from 3.5-6.5k words apiece. This'll be the first story I've ever written but I have a plot in mind and a plan in place. Just let me know if there's anything you'd like to see or if something about the grammar is bugging you. Thank you for reading!

Please keep in mind there will be some minor adjustments made to the earlier chapters as the book progresses. I'm building a story chapter by chapter, so I may/will need to go back and touch up some things.

An old tale with a human twist

This story was a good find. 

This story covers the death and rebirth of the MC into another world. He struggles though this transiition, which makes me empathize with him along his journey.

Reminds me a lot of Fallen Conqueror. Kudos good job




This is a great story that accomplishes is what other stories tried to live up to when a main character is transported to a world of magic and combat


Very well written and engaging story.  Defin one i will continue to follow (in spite of the fae, whom i cant stand).  Characters are well thought out and grammar is excellent.  Keep up the excellent work.

Amazing characters. Amazing storytelling

Reviewed at: Char list: Arc 1 only

I really enjoyed this story - and it was the characters that did it for me. From the main to the side characters, the dialogue, characterization, and sheer emotional tension is just masterfully done. You grow with the characters as they grow, bonding with them over the long course of the story. The story takes on the challenge of handling teenage emotions - which, as we all know - can be an extremely turbulent time.

Coupled with a story that was clearly going places, and what had been narrated thus far had me truly hooked. I do truly hope that this is picked up again one day. It'd be a true shame if it weren't!


You are looking at Mt.Tai but dont recognize it. Read it and recognize it. 


Nice story, rather slow in building background and MC. I think academic arc is boring, and MC too pacifist for a strong one, low key is good but without plot or twist it become flat story. Need more fighting or clashing though
