What happens when Virtual and Reality swap places? Humans have become NPCs, their lives now bound to a couple of lines and actions. On the other hand, the denizens of the virtual world—the world of Murim Recurve—became sentient. Time passed in the realisified virtual world, its history became culturally diverse, eventually surpassing that of the Earth—whose time had become still.
A lady of noble birth encounters a deranged human, a denizen of myth in Murim. In his dying breath, he passes her the fading embers of the fate he had shouldered, the fate of bringing back reality. As a denizen of Murim, will she betray her world? Or will she pave the way to her reality?

Before I go in-depth with this review, let me point out how amazingly beautiful Overlord Venus crafted this story. It's a unique POV in an interesting world, told through the eyes of an amazing character.
Without further intro, let's begin the actual review:
Style Score: I gave it a 5/5 since it was really smooth. The action scenes and the portrayal of the background were realistic. I could imagine the scenes and feel as if I was the character (Re'Kha) experiencing everything.
Story: What we have here is what seems to be similar to a martial arts world/cultivation world. But judging by what the author had hinted at and foreshadowed, the power structure looks like it would evolve into its own unique setting. There are no people that could shatter the ground with a punch or superhumans capable of flying through the skies. Based on what I have read, the fantasy scale is pretty low. The characters possess some form of energy (Qi) that allows them to create projections of their body to attack.
The story follows the character Re'Kha that was betrayed and had lost her eyes. She then chances upon a master that saves her before passing his abilities to her. His death creates a storm of events and disasters that pull in Re'Kha.
The thing that I loved the most is how the emphasis this story focuses on is survival in horror elements of a traditional power fantasy.
Grammar: I couldn't find any mistakes. Maybe it's because my own level of English isn't high.
Character: We have only been introduced to a couple of characters apart from Re'Kha. I'll leave room for doubt here. But so far, the characters have been realistically fleshed out. They all act and behave based on their backstories and are full of life (if that even makes sense haha)
Overall: This is binge-worthy.
A very interesting story about a blind cultivator attempting to survive the situation they find themself in. The Summary threw me off as at the current chapter as of this review, there is almost nothing showing this to be the case. I would reccomend the author to change the synopsis to hide these apparent major future plot points. Also, for any new reader, the novel is no longer posting on this site, but is hosted on another, with paid chapters. You have been been warned
I like the action and the plot. The grammar is really pleasant to read and the overall impact of the story made me love it. It's a nice read. Three chapters in, and I'm already hooked. I hope this remains as good once I catch up to the latest chapter.
