On a rainy day in the city of Hong Kong, Li Qiu dejectedly walked in a local park ignoring the mocking cry of the rain as he kept thinking about his day’s work as an international translator.
Suddenly, golden radiance spread out from the skies followed by a series of conch sounds that roared with a battle cry out for every measurable creation to realize the beginning of something auspicious, which was immediately followed by the bursting of various electronic devices, vehicles, animals, insects and……even humans.
Li Qiu, in a fit of panic, instinctively reached for his phone when a blinding light shone from within the phone which seeped into him.
“Damn you….’ding’ my ass, get out from my body”
Sun_Saint: I have to say that I really enjoyed reading this amazing hidden gem. The first few chapters had a bit of *******ish feel to it with lacking punctuation and a couple of other errors, but the quality really picked up from chapter 12 onwards. Now at chapter 30, I feel as if the author is a veteran in this field.
Jamison_C: The author has created an interesting and engaging premise with the starting chapters.
Idea of humans equipped with powers after an apocalyptic event comes across clearly.
The ******* of dealing with the environment and one’s new powers creates an engaging background.
GreasyBeer: Lol. This is like a parody of cliche system novels we all have read here. Fun, engaging and with decent grammar. Much better than the ones I’ve seen on wn in the other countless system out there -_- . Srsly ppl, read more before you decide to write -_- . And this novel is a good one to start with!
GaiusMaximus: A novel with potential, the pace of the story was neither slow or fast which was enjoyable. Author has put much effort into characters and I personally found the character Enbi Arin as pragmatic. I have taken a point for updates and grammar. Even though the novel doesn’t update daily, it does at regular intervals.
TomVanDyke: With an interesting protagonist, fast pacing, a well-thought-out power system, intriguing side characters, and plenty of action right from the start, this is a seriously compelling story.
The only thing I’d suggest is for the author to pay a little more attention to punctuation.
In some places, missing commas and periods distract from the writing, which is a shame because other than that, the story is great.
Overall, this one’s definitely worth reading.
WinterBud: I thought I wouldn’t like this because I Hate Systems (heh heh, geddit?) It’s really well written, author just needs to pay more attention to punctuation and the like. The first chap really reminded me of The Malazan Book of the Fallen. Folks, if you have patience for thousand chapter stories on here, give that giant series a try too. Anyway, that’s a compliment to the author, because I really love that series. Keep up the epicness!
Rwgey: Not bad! Let’s just say it’s quite different from the other novels, making it unique and interesting to read. Fresh vibe to it. There are a few grammatical errors throughout your writing, especially in chapter 2. Although negligible, you should probably still proof-read once more. You have a few uncapitalized letters at the start of a few quotes as well as some other non-semsical errors. Other than the few editorial errors, it’s great and has a lot of potential! Wish you look as you continue to write.
Zhen_Xin: It’s not bad at all. A few grammar mistakes here and there but who doesn’t have those?!
The characters are developed nicely, although my own personal feelings make me question a few things about their choices and actions.
The world background is pretty good and I do not have many comments in the update stability. It seems that a large number of chapters were released at once before a steady schedule was made. Interesting choice.
Overall the story is pretty great and I look forward to future updates. Keep working hard author!
I also do recommend reading this since it is very well written. And if you like a sort of intense yet comedic vibe from your novels, this is a good choice.
