When a down on his luck machine shop owner ends up coming into possession of a rundown suit of power-armor, he sees an opportunity to make some quick cash.

Just take my star.

Well, what can i say, i love the story. The character feel fresh to me, everyone is living, mc not typical mc (idiot beta male), the side characters not always on mc side. 

I just hope maybe after this mc will become real artificer where he combined mech with human flesh, created new limb or body like half cyborg but working cyborg. I mean you cant blame me, his name is literally mechromancer. Where author get from Necromancer (get it?)


Honestly one of my favorite on here so far. I normally don't like Sci-Fi too much, or rather find it hard to get into since I prefer magic and fantasy, but this is pretty cool. Can't wait to see what happens next!


Don't know what it is, I just dont like the story.Its not really a issue with the plot, or characters I think, it just doesn't interest me.Maybe the story might be a little boring?There's no real unique spin as far as I can see, besides the setting, so that might be off-putting me.


Full of life and a party of plots within plots

This story is truly something else. From harem stories, this isharem done right or at least to my taste. One of the few things that destorys a harem is in its lifelessness of the harem members. And this story is the opposite to that. The characters, all of them, are overflowing with personality that it sorta is  part of why it is so entertaining and interesting. (I am not a good reviewer of stories in RRL and often times I'm a mere lurker here and there.)


As of Chapter 14, this is easily one of the better superpowered stories on RRL. I agree that it does remind me a little of D-List Supervillain, but there are more than enough differences for it to stand on it's own. There's good action and excellent world-building. I look forward to reading more.  


Good Story,but inconsistent updates

Reviewed at: Chapter Fifty Six
Spoiler: Spoiler

 Used to be updated 2 time a week. Now once a week but "longer" chapter as promised by the author, but it's not even that long. Now i't being updated every two weeks, sometimes even more.


 Stumbled across this story trying to tide over the insatiable beast that is my need for reading, and got hooked. Really hope there's more at some point!


Pretty good but I've yet to see proof of the Harem 60ch in

Reviewed at: Chapter Fifty Six

Good read. 

The tags maybe need to include 'betrayal' since thats pretty much 80% of the plot so far. I've also yet to see any harem and there has only been 1 'sex scene' 60 chapters in. 



This is an entertaining read

I love this 'superhero' world the characters are in. the focus of tech and the MC's use of it.

I love this series, my only complaint is that there aren't more chapters


In the interest of saving my fellow reader time and sustaining their interest in web-novels:

This is a brew of pulpy, low brow power fantasies. These are seasoned with a lingering depictions of women as either sex objects, amoral killers or both. Drops quite a few n-word racist bombs (but it’s the characters who said it, so it’s okay!). Frequent usages of grunts, growls and scatalogical fear (“I almost pooped my pants in fear!”). I pressed on to chapter 14, but I just don’t have the right palate for this.

My opinion is subjective and just a summary, obviously.
