It is good to see that author is publishing elsewhere besides signing off the creative rights to qidian international. 

Author admits that it is inspired by Korean novel reincarnator and the similar vibe can be felt on the first chapters. But it's just general theme (survival of the race, removal of internal enemies, getting allies, etc.)
So if you've read Reincarnator, Master Hunter K, etc., it's another book exploring similar themes. 

The story is just starting but I think it is going to shape up as a decent reading material. (Author also writen evolving from nothing, so I'd expect something eventually hitting the tops of the stories.

I should start this off by saying I enjoyed reading it. But. BUT. ItFeels like a translated bad Chinese novel from webnovel. So much fluff and repeating things to get word count up. Also, very much a case of telling not showing

Honestly I love the concept / setting but the way chapters are done make the story feel awful. 

Each chapter feels like a chunk of the story cut off whenever the author thinks he has enough words to release. The average chapter is just under 6 pages (by RR's count) which is way too short for anything to happen. For referernce, the top ten RR series average between 11-40 pages per chapter, typically sitting at about 15.

The author splits what should be 1 solid chapter into 3 - 5 awkwardly cut snippets that end up underwelming and uneventful.

Enjoying it alot but so far he has not really done much to help humanity, like the elixir he drank if more ppl knew it it would help more.

while I understand how he is trying to use his advance knowledge as a lench pen to make the future a better place, he should be advising ppl about what is going to happen and that everyone should get the KI tec.

Good story, shitty ability.

Rather well written story with an interesting premise, the life orb ability is OP and totally bullshit even compared to the other powers in the story. The power removes all tension from the story, dont understand the obsession with it.

Plot is great but those.. redundancies..

Well, i really like the setup and plot.. But there are two things that freaks me out..

1) Author repeats full pharagraphs of descriptions EVERY FEW chapters. It takes only 5-10 minutes to read between them. It feels like author thinks that his readers are brain dead or a goldfish. Few times i even had strong feeling that i somehow opened one of the previous chapters and started a new because he didn't even bothered with alternate spelling. 
2) For some reason author repeatedly zones out from the current situation to write full chapters of flashbacks and almost meanless ( like my first point ) or overdosed with information descriptions. For example we have POV of the people in dangerous situation, MC intervenes and saves them. After that author switches back to MC and insted of interacting with them he zones out for a full chapter to remember for N-th time what were his reasons, why he won't help them futher, his desctiptions of skills and abilities and so on. 
Its not like i have something agains flashbacks or inputs of information every time and then but it should be MUCH MORE seldom and short.

Feels like a translation

 Decent read, nice story line ( although I've seen similar storylines in other novels, but its a pass ).

 

But damn ... the writing style reminds me of those translated chinese wuxia novels you find on Qidian... its suffering so much from a case of "describing instead of showing it" that i can only describe it as unhealthy for my eyes. If you are into chapters fluffed up with unnecessary "descriptions" that feel like it was added to make chapters feel longer and really awkward borderline cringe  scenes, go ahead.

I have several issues with the first chapter alone and probably won't continue reading.

This story is pretty fun but the constant switching POV jist drove me nuts. I want to know what happens later on but not enough to deal with switching POVs two or three times a chapter.

Story/Plot

Most people probably wouldn't consider this a spoiler, but I'll be describing a few aspects that this story has, without spoiling specific events from the story.

Writing Style

Despite all that, I'm hesitant to recommend this novel because the writing style almost makes it read as though it were the direct transcription of a comic book. My primary concern in this regard is that action scenes are filled with crude forms of onomatopoeia (e.g. "WHOOSH", "SHKKK", and "CLANG"). Second, the main character's exact thoughs are far too present for my tastes; thankfully these thoughts are delimited in single quotes and attributed to the MC (rather than simply being used as narration, as many Royal Road novels are prone to do), but I still dislike it and consider it a violation of the "show don't tell" adage.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt because different people have different thoughts on writing style. Although I gave a low style rating, that's just based on my personal preference, not some official style guide. All of my biggest concerns appear in the first chapter, so if you're worried about style just give that one chapter a read and see what you think.
