With the fallen god Amro as his teacher, Zaros will come to learn of the ways of the world. Once presented with the cruelty of society and the dark nature of humanity, will he choose to uphold his ideals? Or will he embrace the legacy of his benefactor?

Witness their story in a world filled with mages, knights and magical creatures as both of them reap whoever stands in the way of their revenge. Witness the birth of a new Overlord of Death.

Old Synopsis:

Greed is the nature of all living beings; the same could be said of death. 

There is life because there is death, and there is death because there is life. Every living being will come to die eventually. 

However, the god of Death didn't expect his own so soon after being betrayed by the other gods in their pursuit of immortality. As he embraced his own death, the desire for revenge made him activate his remaining phylactery; a fragment of his soul hidden in the mortal world of Gaia. 

What happens when a young man, persecuted by the King's troops embraces death? Well, death embraces him back.

Author removes comments

5days ago I noticed this story and I wanted to try it.

I noticed that chapters were removed then were all re-added about 1 month ago pending amazone publication and that 1st book was expected to be removed "one day" (within 2 months)

I put it on "quickly start this story" list.

and 2 days later, when I started, without having seen an announced date not change that anywhere, chapters 4-30 of book 1 were removed within a day, leaving me stuck at chapter 3. All chapters of book 1 the next day.

See my surprise when the story I wanted to read quick stopped at chapter 3 brutally.

When I commented in the newest chapter (50) that it was sad that I couldn't read the story and surprised that he removed from one day to the other... author removed my comment.

so I didn't rate before, but now I'll do : you get 2.5 star for going out of your way to not being nice.

 

eventually, it's good practice, when you decide to remove chapters, to announce a date for removing them. Just for people that discover you story and are stuck in limbo between two chapters...

if I had know beforehand, either i'll not have started the story (and not be disapointed) or I'll have saved the pages before.

Okay story, author (?) deletes comments

The story is fine; I gave up after the first book though. All side characters and antagonists are paper cutouts there to teach the young protagonist to stop being kind.

But you're reading this on RRL so there's a better than average chance you're on board for that.

But something, maybe the author or maybe a weirdly specific bug (my guess is author) removes comments on some chapters, whole cloth.

You'll see it as you read through and it seems antithetical to the purpose of this website to me.

Good, not great (yet..)

Volume 1 completed.

---

The world is well developed, with lots of plots and characters moving about in the background, and many more people making their moves unseen. The main characters are interesting and the magic system seems close to standard but with its own twist. 

The story makes liberal use of smaller time skips, moving past anything that seems uninteresting. (training, days where nothing happens, etc.)

The story is about political games being played around the MC. It focusses on the corruption, greed, and the more unsavory parts of human nature. The MC, as the only 'good guy' then proceeds to waltz through the opposition, or convince them with kindness. I find this interesting, yet I would also like to see more of the development of our MC. I do think that the start could have gone a bit slower. As he seems to have been rushed from his home village to the starter one.

For now, I recommend keeping an eye on this as it has potential and a large number of updates till it is caught up.

This review will be updated later.

Filler Content Abound

Reads like the work of a chinese author who gets paid according to their word count. Numerous pointless repetitions and drawn-out scenes.

What happens when a god falls and joins his soul with a random no talent child ? We'll find out. 

I've been bingeing this book the past week and just caught up today. The world has been built pretty well with interesting characters and places along with a developed magic system that follows more along the lines of body cultivation so far. I'll definitely be following this as chapters come out.

Good Story, i recommend it

I really like the story.

The character development is tangible, even if the pace is on the slower side.

But that isnt a problem here at all, the pace makes it possible to let the story and characters develope life ^^

 

I recommend it to everyone, who likes Topics like Gods, Kingdoms, and Character rising to become strong. :D

 

With sincere regards,

EleM

I'm really enjoying this.

I'm really enjoying this novel. The story isnt a completely original concept, that doesnt stop me from really liking it. The author has a pretty good pace for the story i.e he doesnt get bogged down into the details - for instance he dosnt take 30 chapters to have the MC walk through a forest like other webnovels have [Truly thanks for that!].

The characters are enjoyable, I especially approve of the intro to Volume 2 and the developement within. The MC isnt omniscient and the problems he faces dont just disappear or get solved "cause hes the MC" actual work needs to be done.

I'm proud to say that the grammar police in me hasnt found any issue with sentences or words.
