  • Gore
  • Traumatising content

The Netherworld: it is a hellish landscape inhabited only by demons, creatures born from the dark abyss. It is also the only world Salvos knows.

Joining the ranks of newborn demons, Salvos is thrown into the violent, anarchy-ruled landscape of that world. To survive, she will have to learn, she will have to adapt, and she will have to evolve. She will gain experience to reach new Levels of power. 

Her curiosity aids her but her pride could be her fall. It is the nature of the Netherworld to avoid or conquer any threats faced. After all, the law of evolution is survival of the fittest, and Salvos is a survivor. And perhaps, eventually, she will leave this world behind for a better place. But is that what she even wants? 

Do note that it's a slow-paced but action-packed litrpg!

Dedicated author with regular and high frequency releases bringing a good story that is also written well to the community!

Thanks a lot and keep up the great work!

Thanks a lot also for prioritizing the RRL community before KU.

(this review was created at around chapter 100 of the story)

Decent idea, mediocre follow-through

Reviewed at: 98. Escape

Like many "monster"-centric stories, it eventually falls into the trap of shifting focus to less interesting human affairs. It starts off strong with the arc in the demon realm, with good world-building and characters with interesting perspectives and clear goals. Then we move into the human realm, which is much more like a bog-standard litrpg isekai world. Then we get tangled up in new human characters and their problems, many of them based on not very well thought out politics and power structures. Chapters also start to drag on later on - the author need to learn the art of editing and cutting out the fat. 

Stillness
Overall

I found this story to be boring. The story takes place in a world of rocky white stone where demons fight each other for power.

The main character is a newly born demon that is... newborn. There isn't much complexity to her character because she doesn't have much character at all. Her main ambition driving the story forward is, of course, to grow stronger. 

Story, character, setting? There just wasn't anything for me to get interested in. If your looking for a LitRPG where you can cheer when the the MC wins fights and gains levels this story might be for you. Otherwise, carry on.
