The New Journey of an Old Soul

by Vihyungrang

Original COMPLETED Action Drama Fantasy Romance Female Lead Gender Bender Reincarnation Strong Lead
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Sexual Content

The story of a soul seeking new adventure in a new life. A secret wish to find some things he never really found in his old life. Will the universe have other ideas for him again? Warning: 18+ due to violence, language and sexual content Note: The story is complete. A/N: Since people seem to be skittish with the gender bender tag, I should probably mention that it does not play a particularily important part in the story. More in the beginning, less as the story goes on.

Found this gem yesterday

Boy am i glad i tried reading it! It's awesome! 

 

The writing style is very engaging. World-building and character development is great. I read it in 1 shot over a few hours and i can't wait for more!

Excellent main character and excellent story line. My only gripe is we have very limited knowledge on the Main Character's background. Keep up the good work this story has a lot of potential...

Laughs, cries, suspense.... few times I have feelt it... this is one

Most people here do know that there is no such thing as being neutral.. every likes different things afterall….. All I can really say is that I have read well over 500 series so far.. and I cant help but put this in the top 10 of them… probably because it has those things that I want in a series…. You have a strong main character… alot of people around that you get to know, you get feelings, there is tradgedy, anger, embarrasment and so on…. and it does make up alot of what a series need to be trully successfull…. All I can say… Thank you for making this series…. Just love it, if there is one think I could complain about, it would be that we need more original magic...

Good World Building with Poor Characters

First of all, the elephant in the room. The gender bender tag. The MC is reborn as a female, but throughout the whole story, the only sex she ever takes an interest in is other women. Not only that, but other female characters start to turn into lesbians by simply being around her. The longer I read this, the more I realize a simple fact, this entire story could have been written with a male MC and nothing would have changed. Absolutely nothing would be different. Every character that falls in love with the MC could still fall in love with them, all the children she, SPOILER,  fathers  could still be conceived without "it's magic" being used as an excuse, and the plot holes with the world building could be made right if the MC was male. I wouldn't be so hung up on this if more effort was put into feminizing the MC and actually putting in some conflict to her relationships. It was established in an early world-building infodump chapter that the elves, her species, are not a fertile race. Such an establishment in any world would make homosexuality at least be conflicted with society, but no effort was ever made by the author to build on this. In fact, there's so little conflict in the middle of the story that the author had to make up a villain from space to build a climax.

I have nothing against homosexual main characters, but this story doesn't do homosexual characters in a medieval fantasy world any justice. It reads like porn, the MC is a Mary Sue, romance (aside from sex scenes) is completely nonexistent, and MC's entire family are forgettable 2d characters.

The author excels in world building and political drama. But other than that, needs to work on everything else.

Gender-Bender Finally Takes a Solid Lesbi-turn (IN A GOOD-WAY!!!)

I don’t understand how other GB authors haven’t started worshiping this man. When the MC is a newly-chick, scenarios involving the potential-D can get a bit awkward. I’m a guy(if you can’t tell). Personally, I appreciate hot lesbians when I see them both: literally, and literaturly. Which makes this story a step ahead of other GB confused authors!(Personal Opin~) :D

Anyways, despite my GB praise, this story is also extremely well written; the characters have great personality; and the non-arrogant-intellectual-genius-legendary-bada**-HOT-empathetic-interesting-MC who has a truly refreshing outlook on power; definitely makes this story one of my top reads on RR!

Praise to the author! May you forever feed this addicted leech MORRRR CHAPS!

Probably my favorite story on this site.

This is the story of the typical op reincarnated MC. However what sets this one apart is the their are many others that can rival the mc and her raw power isn't a one stop solution. The author keeps the story fresh by having the mc actually use smarts and logic. Furthermore, the mc actually has a compelling past around their reincarnation that actually plays into the ongoing plot. My only hope  right now is that the authros spends a few chapters on an Academy/school arc after this last arc is done.

 

Also a note to the author your story is really good and as it becomes more popular you will start to see trolls like the authors of Blackthorne and Dragon child of Thunder I just hope you don't let that get to you and burn you out because this series is really special.

This was a really enjoyable read for me. While the reincarnation plot device has been overused, I never did feel bored with this rendition; it gave me a few laughs, to say the least.

 

The story was clearly well planned, engaging and adequately paced with a few comedic moments here and there. Most events do not feel overly “forced”,  meshing well with world and character development. But only a few characters are well developed as of Chapter 23; most of the supporting cast are either only mentioned by name, or have barely a few lines of dialouge before disappearing – not that I’m complaining though. I’m perfectly fine with centering the story around the MC and her immediate vicinity, though it might cause the plot to derail or lose focus. I’m not entirely sure what the MC’s future plans are now. I fail to see how she can continue learning from her father while undertaking “missions” from various sources.

 

Other than some grammatical errors, the language is almost flawless, and made for a relaxing read. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good story. I’m already itching for more.

 

(Edit: I noticed a couple of plotholes on my 2nd read. But they definitely don’t lower the enjoyment factor.)

the story is pretty much great

the plot is interesting

the chraracters are interesting

and it kinda got a fresh style of something else

i had fun and smiled reading the story and i even heard the song baba yetu(after you posted the link in 1 chapter) till i finished all chapters

the atmosphere is sweet

i had a great time reading it

kinda funny after reading pretty much most story above 20 chapters

to find the real unique and good ones at last

and this one is definetly one those where i would recommend it big time to give it a try

there wasnt 1 boring moment

it didnt have that much action but enough for it

it was a mix of sweet slice of life+fantasy and turns to action+drama

well done writing it keep it up!

Luv the story but not everything (many ppl will luv it 100% though)

First I’l go with the POSITIVES

I absolutely love the story! 5 stars for that

Writing style is great and so is the grammar… The MC is fantastic!

 

(MINOR SPOILERS FROM HERE)

 

The ONLY FLAW is mostly the weird relationship everyone has with the MC… I’l explain it clearly:

(Not cuz of the lesbianism but due to the incestuous notes in the story)

1. Ppl get weirdly obsessed with Neleh… Its fine in most cases, even fun. But the family (mostly the mom) being obsessed is too much. It gets annoying in many many parts!

I mean seriously? Even though nothing happens nor will happen, she “wants” her daughter :/ I think the whole keeping that bond b/w the two was a baad choice. Should have simply severed it.

On top of the normal obsession she had with Neleh since the whole kidnapping as a baby, the bond made it worse.

I really dislike the mom character, especially since ur story with her getting the sword and power shows that she will be a major supporting character…

 

Also the lack of any recurring & significant (key words) male character is kinda weird… The MC has no association with any male, especially close to her age! Its become a world where every strong and righteous person is female? Its not a major problem but is still a flaw.

(I’m not counting the angels and random classmates cuz they are not her constant companions)

 

 

 

But 4 the story, its still awesome…I still recommend reading it cuz its still one of the best there is.
