What happens when a summoned hero completes their task given by those from up above? When a summoned hero returns back to earth after having saved the world, do they still get to live a normal life?

They want to taste for adventure once more, feed their drive for exploration! Power, wealth, another life, they want it all. So, what do they do? Why, they do what Quasi does...
They sell themselves to the gods.

The author needs to take some friggin' notes, and then refer back to them while writing.
Is the skill called Bone Renewal or Skeletal Renewal? Are the lizard people Gejada, Gejan or Gajan? The head honcho of Odin's church, is he a Counselor or a Chancelor? Is Mule's name capitalized or not? Who knows! All those things change all the time, sometimes within the same chapter. Or what about that one time the MC decides his Advanced Mana Sense is going to be called Greater Mana Sense? Just the one time, then it goes back.
It is seriously driving me crazy.
This is a decent story with a semi original plot and likeable, if somewhat idiotic characters. The non-summoned characters might technically be people but they act like NPCs.
Now to the massive con: THE SYNTAX IS ATROCIOUS!!! Seriously, the most glaring error was instead of writing "Franky's" you wrote "Frankies". Unless you have many people called Franky you never write the plural of a name.
What's slightly irritating is the sexual stuff in the story. I don't mind NSFW stuff but it's done terribly here. I don't know why you added it at all. It's jarring and annoying. If you have such raunchy characters, don't make fade to black sex scenes, it doesn't fit thematically.
The flashbacks should be made obvious. You should at the least make headers that say: 2 months earlier or something because it takes a few sentences to understand that we're somewhere completely different in the narrative.
And to my final criticism: It's laudable that you cleaned up your syntax somewhat in chapter 18 but you must edit the rest of your chapters. Take a day off from writing and edit properly. I guarantee you'll go up by a couple hundred in the rankings if you do. I almost stopped reading because it was so awful.
Otherwise, well done and I hope to read more.
(updated as of chapter 150; the old review was from April 2019 at chapter 27)
In 'Inexorable Chaos', Quasi is a professional Hero who is regularly summoned by gods to any world where one is needed and thus he has lots of experience with that. His newest "job" is from Loki and the goal is to destroy a world that has turned out faulty/broken.
Style: The story is told in present tense from the point of view of multiple people, with a handful of regular ones. Sometimes it's not easy to notice whose POV it is in the earlier chapters. LitRPG elements are done mostly in the form of levels, Classes and use of Skills. Blue boxes are for system messages and when somebody is Appraised or getting a new class.
Story: While the concept of the story is interesting and the story is nice to read, I feel it is a bit lacking in suspense because Quasi succeeds too easily. Whenever there is an obstacle, there is not even a little doubt that it will be overcome with little struggle. There are also a bit too many different points of view, to the point of confusion. The pacing is more on the slow side, with many deviations from the main storyline.
Grammar: The early chapters are bad but still readable (2.5 stars) with a significant number of plural-s/possessive-s errors and some homophone errors, in addition to punctuation errors. Also often there are clunky sentences. After a few dozen chapters it gets much better but it's still not great.
Characters: Quasi might be the MC but to me he reads like an immature and boring comic relief. Most readers like that but I don't. Concerning "boring": He's massively, massively overpowered and that takes away all the suspense. Everything easily works out for him, the biggest obstacles he has to overcome is when something only works out to 99%, e.g. he's getting blood on his clothes from blowing up some boss monster 10 times his level. Concerning "comic relief": Quasi is an obnoxious, attention-seeking drama queen, a significant part of his actions are loud and overdramatic theatrics. Concerning "immature": In addition to the presentation of the former trait and the simple jokes played all the time, another significant part of the story is the repetitive emphasis on his sexual desirablity and prowess. Every female, regardless of species, is constantly lusting for him. We later learn that this is because of a hidden trait. It made me chuckle the first few times but later on it became just another boring repetition wasting space in the chapters.
In the other characters, there is not too much depth either, but at least it is not so blatant. They have a nice variety of personalities, but there are a lot of them and sometimes it's difficult to remember who was who. Most are "nice to know about" but few are very captivating. Personally, I like the chapters with the side characters Franky, Rathos and Artyom best, although the latter is a very simple man.
All in all, this story is great if you're a fan of absolutely overpowered MCs. It's still an okay read if you're not, but with the suspense reduced by that you won't get the same enjoyment out of it IMHO.
It feels like I'm reading 5 different books, cause the character in the books description, is only in like 1/3 of the book, MAYBE, were told line 9 ish people's stories all at the same time, and by the time they're actually relevant in any way to the actual story, the author will have to repeat half the shit since there's no way people will remember 9 stories information, it's to the point where I see a pov and I'm like, is this a new one? One I've seen before? They all just mush together. And then we're told the same situation from different pov, and none of them are part of the MCs story. It's just too much. I like world building, but fuck me at least have 50% of the book on the MC, i can't see myself reading more than 5 more chapters.
I quite liked the premise and the setting in the beginning. Introduction of characters were good with nice descriptions of their background. The world-building and story was also good.
But as I continued to read on, I can't help but notice that there is no character development for the MC. I'm already at chapter 160 and the MC is still the same as he was since the beginning. The only characters that have decent development were Jessica and Franky imo. Their development throughout the story was good. The author stated in the blurb that there will be two-dimensional and three-dimensional characters, and I'm starting to think Quasi is one of the two-dimensional ones.
When it comes to Arc two, the only thing I can say is that I'm disappointed. I was looking forward to it with how the author was hyping up the readers, but when I started reading GAW (Gods at War), the story is all over the place. There are so much perspective changes at almost every chapter. I understand that stories need to have perspective changes in order to follow the side characters along with the world-building, but I think it would be better if there are no perspective change until a certain sequence of events is done happening. Also, the author just literally killed a major character just like how he would kill an extra. I get that characters die in novels, but I did not expect the death of a major character to be just mentioned in a few paragraphs. At least add some tear-jerking scenes or something.
I liked the novel at the start, but now I'm just slogging through the chapters.
Not that bad either, but it's frankly mediocre. With so many great works out there, this one just isn't worth it for me.
The author chose to write a MC that is supposed to know more than the author (and everyone save for gods and immortals) knows. Some stories manage to be convincing when trying the same, but this story has failed in this aspect. Maybe because it's the MC, so it is hard to hide the lack of actual knowledge. Just saying that the character knows something isn't enough to convince when they fail to act accordingly.
There are some weird things like everyone treating rape as commonplace (which in the story setting wouldn't be so weird, because slavery seems to be a common occurrence, but there are characters that aren't used to slavery and thus shouldn't see either rape os slavery as normal).
The grammar is horrid. Even in the chapters that were checked there are still some weird turns of phrase, misplaced words (there is one chapter that has so many random "had"s that it was hard to read, and the random "had"s make a lot of occasional re-appearances in a lot of chapters too), misspelled words (seen "per say" more than once. The correct is "per se", but really, just use "by itself" and avoid sounding pompous AND misspelling) and insconsistencies in the verb tense.
However, it is midly entertaining and it seems there is planning to the story, so it isn't a distasteful disaster. Maybe some future work from the author will be great? I do like to see that the author is engaged with the reviews and comments, always seeming to be in a good mood. Wish I could be nicer to the story, but I'd rather be honest: I didn't like it.
This book was my favourite, the chapters kept on getting better and better. Then i realized the chapters were iust getting repetitive, it was the same stuff over again. I grew tired of the Mc's personality, his edgy fuck all personality was good at first. Now its a serious liability to enjoying the story. The concept is good , but this story needs to stop getting so repetitive. All in all , i stopped Reading cause it was boring.
In this review : one thing i like and one i dont
The secondary characters in this novel are great, (russian, big Lady, general... ) they have interesting personalities and story and it's fabulous.
As of chapter 50-ish the main plot in the dungeon is really being stretched out, the characters is the only thing keeping me reading, the pace is way too slow/repetitive with Quasi.
First off, this isn't the story of an experienced hero getting hired on a bunch of jobs and solving them quickly, it's one big tough job.
Overall it's a good story, well written, a good world, an interesting plot, fun characters. But while the overall ideas are good, they're not portrayed as well as they could be.
- Good descriptive writing
- Good grammar, with only a few errors that don't interfere with flow.
- The summoned heroes have great personalities.
- Most characters given any significant screen time are fairly well rounded.
- 3 fairly consistent main plotlines.
- MC is backed by the Gods of trickery, which always makes things interesting.
- Viewpoints switch constantly. By the current chapter (27) it's rare to get a whole chapter from one person's point of view, let alone two in a row. This makes it difficultto actually show any of the well crafted personalities.
- The MC hasn't actually used much trickery yet. He was unpredictable and chaotic in the first few chapters, but since then he has either facepunched or sent minions to solve all his problems with ease.
- It doesn't seem likely that the 3 plotlines will converge any time in the first book's worth.
Overall, this is a great story with a whole bunch of good ideas, which is having trouble developing any one of them.
I rather enjoyed the story at the begiining and for the first hundred-odd chapters. The author's style, though, makes it harder for me to continue to find enjoyment in the story. I get it, the author goes by Cliff Hanger so there are going to be cliff hangers in the story. The author seems to enjoy celebrating this fact in the author's note for reasons that I do not understand. This is just a minor nuisance, but it feels like a sign of the change in the author's writting.
At the end of the day, it feels like the story tries to do too much and I have no idea how any of what the main character is doing fits into the overarching plot. There is an overarching plot, right? Ever since they left the dungeon...they're just drifting. Are they actually doing something? I couldn't begin to guess.
I don't mind slife of life stories, but this one just seems to be going nowhere and doing so in a very roundabout way. Perhaps the story will pick up again at some point, but I'm not sure I have the patience to wait for that day.
