by crazieaznkid

Original HIATUS Action Adventure Drama Fantasy Gender Bender

Riley was a college student at Sun Tzu's Military Academy, the bestof the world. His life is cut short when his soul is ripped from his body and summoned into the body of a slave woman in another world. King Caligula summoned Riley as a Hero as the final act of desperation as his country is on the verge of collapse due to the heavy cost of fighting against monstrous invaders. As a hero, Riley has access to the Hero System, an omnipotent system that guides him in his quest to save others. Riley chooses to embrace his new identity, but at a great cost to himself. One that he may never recover from unless he can get help from elsewhere.

Anyone can be a Hero!!!

The story theme may be the same old one, but the contents of this one surely are very different, at least in terms of how the methods employed to save the world.  The Main character is something that is very likable and has a very interesting twist in how the hero summoning worked and later on how things changes for the better for the MC at least. A likable MC leads to a good story is what I think. There isn’t only killing involved, but whatever comes when one takes the responsibility of all things considered political, economics, military, development etc. 


P.S. [About the Tags] There are Comedy and VR, which surely there isn’t any when I read, but VR system concept is employed is the meaning. Also, if anyone is either put-off by the Gender-Bender tag or is interested in this story because of it, then sadly, at least for me the Concept is not really utilized properly, it’s just there for the aesthetics. But, there is no need to worry because the story is still a good read independent of these factors.

Good storyline, fast paced and interesting

The story is interesting and has an epicness needed for a fantasy novel. Some typos and name confusions. Are there where characters are referred by wrong name which can be inferred from reading the context.. Also the dialogue feels monotonous and not even a bit emotional.. 


Except fir a another round of PR and  some dialogue or interaction changes the story is definitely top in the fantasy genre of this site.

A nice spin on the summoned Hero genre

This review is from a person who only read up to chapter 9 of Book 1 so please keep that in mind. Also this is my PERSONAL opinion so it may differ from yours and since i hate spoilers i keep it mostly free of them (might spoil chap 1-3 here and there)


The Author writes this work mostly in 3rd person. So for anyone not interested in Mr. Author telling us a story and sometimes switches to the perspective of the MC´s inner thoughts this probably won´t be for you.


We have our (Ex) Male MC who gets summoned to another world by sacrificing/fusing their souls together and the Vessel for the summoning happens to be a Slave Prostitute which was bought from a brothel for the summoning and as usual the king gives an unreasonable demand to help his country, which he/she does but not in the usual fashion.

I won´t write anymore about the story since I want to avoid Spoiling as much as possible


As a german who only had 10 years of school english it is very easy to read and i haven´t found any Grammar issues with it (so take this with a grain of salt)


The King: The usual shitstain on a throne

The one who summons the MC: Very likeable person but very secretive

MC (Male part): As far as the story told us he was a guy at a Military Academy

MC (female part): Slave prostitute who speacializes in information gathering

MC (fused): seems to adapt very fast to the fact that he now has a female body and memories of a slave prostitute and starts becoming a powerful mage over time, sadly no struggle in any of the fights until now.

All in all I like the characters but something doesn´t sit right with me on a few of them (not listed here to avoid spoilers) which brought this part down 1/2 a star.


And to the Author:

This is a great story. I will definetly continue to read this until the end

Good read but needs rework

I liked this story to read all 91 chapters. I felt as the author pointed out it needed to be redone. A lack of description the original protagonist discarded and then added back later as a side character. The new protagonist for some reason takes care of her children for a short time and then abandons them as if it’s normal behavior. Maybe it is to her. The beginning statements that the world is really corrupt and needs help is later abandoned so is statements that normal people don’t travel from city to city. Overall the story got me wanting to see the gamer evolution of the protagonists.

But I came for the gender bender........

At first I liked the story but  later our mc kinda “changes” and turns out  wasn’t really the gender bent mc I came for  not ganna go into details as it will count as a spoiler , the mc does extremely annoying stuff such as being fine with being the second and thinking of herself as a slave even thou she’s supposed to be the hero -.- I don’t think I will continue in reading stopped at chapter 15

not that good too positive review

i feel like its not that good......................................................

  • Overall Score

The writing feels boring and emotionless. Nothing that has happened made me care about any of the characters, and the dialogue feels awkward and forced since nothing really flows with cause & effect.

yeey... another gender bender get.

uehehehehe.... >///<
