The world has ended, and those worthy of it have received the chance for a new life in a new reality.

Zach grew in power and thrived in the post-Framework world. He became a respected leader, a shining example of what it meant to be good. But as the world ended, he had only one thought: to punish the monster that had killed the world long before the Framework ended it. Yet not even with his incredible power was he able to stand against the World Ender. His arrival in the new realty, the Infinite Realm, gives him the chance to grow stronger, to find the monster again—and make it pay.

Ryun survived the chaos after the arrival of the Framework by pushing harder than anyone else. He grew in power until he became the most powerful being that had ever walked the planet; but he is hated by the world, called a monster by all others, the World Ender. As the world ends and he steps into a new one, where people stronger than him have lived for centuries, he finds himself lost and without purpose. The only thing that had mattered to him had been lost to him long ago. He truly was the monster that people considered him to be, and he now finds himself wondering if this new reality has a place for someone like him—but he had never been one for lying down and dying without a fight. One world fell to his power, and another might follow.

Current schedule: Monday-Friday, no chapters on the weekends.

Framework is a story that will follow two main characters. The story will be told in two different time periods: Act 2 takes place in the present and follows Ryun and Zach in the Infinite Realm. Act 1 takes place in the past on Earth, and follows the two as they struggle to survive and grow their powers in the world changed by the Framework.

This story is a mix of LitRPG/GameLit and Wuxia/Xianxia, and it will have Classes as well as Cultivation systems. There are two main characters, and another two will be added later.

The author has a quite brilliant imagination as evidenced by this and his other novels such as the Empire series. Having just discovered this story very recently I’m devastated to have reached the latest chapter as I now have to wait like everyone else for the next installments. Hurry up Ivan! :-)

~= Review as of Chapter 40 =~

TL;DR: Great world, systems and story; artfully juxtaposed character development. Perfect english and smooth reading.

The Story is really quite engaging, the combination of class levels and cultivation progression systems and their interplay is handled very well and offers a unique experience. Great world building on both macro and micro scales. Despite there being two main characters, this feels very much like its going to be primarily a story of redemption and healing for Ryun. After all, the truest and most complete way to defeat evil is to turn it to good.

The author's Style is interesting, beginning in medias res at the end of the world (which is quite an amusing phrase to say!) Initially I feared that the "Past" chapters would be focused upon too much, but they become less frequent and showing essentially just the highlight reel as the characters, both their past and present, are established and fleshed out. I came to appreciate this approach and my initial concerns proved to be unfounded. It is there to show how Ryun became the world-ender, butcher of humanity.

The pace feels a little slow. Not a great deal seems to have happened by the 40th chapter - it feels like having read the first third of three books. This is a result of splicing two acts of the same overall story together, with three sepatate plot threads between them. While I enjoy how it has turned out, it has slowed the pace of the story quite a bit in comparison to total words consumed.

The language and Grammar are impeccable. Sentence structure and flow are clean and clear. A+ and a gold sticker for you!

I am enjoying the differences in Character development between Zach and Ryun. Whereas in act 1, the coming of the Framework allowed Ryun to be who he really always was, Zach was forced to grow in ways he hadn't previously considered nor wanted, as he adjusts to his new reality. Act 2, conversely shows Zach as having grown into his responsibility and if not who he wanted to be, then who he needed to be. And Ryun, with Earth behind him, is offered a fresh start without (much) external baggage to drag him back. Ryun can finally begin to heal from whatever deep pain broke him so thoroughly (despite what that one  Title says). He's not so much forced but released to learn how to be good again.

The juxtaposition of these character growths at each end of the story being told simultaneously is what really sold this style to me.
