Synopsis:
The Universe doesn’t care whether a certain thing is right or wrong, rather it exists in a weird state of equilibrium where everything has its polar opposite. From the singularity that gave birth to the universe; to the celestial objects seen throughout its rapid expansion. Every single lifeform, every single object, every single particle, is subject to this principle.
In the 24th of December 2118, they came.
They came with knowledge, with technologies, and last but not the least, they came with change.
A fleet of unknown origin took upon Earth, with their only goal being the integration of Earth into a bigger world.
The reason? Earth finally reached its maturity. Humanity was no longer a young civilization.
In the middle of all this, Fell Pluck, a young 17-year-old, saw this as an opportunity to change his destitute life in the city of New Casablanca.

Review(s)

ShadowGlobe: I absolutely love it. This is a very unique cultivation novel, it combines many modern aspects with this traditional genre. It’s like Sci-fi meets Cultivation (Just waiting on the talismans that summon OP giant robots.) Really good world building and character design, Fell’s unstoppable will to live, that’s MC material right there. Only one downfall, occasional grammar/vocab issues but that doesn’t stop the plot! Good job, waiting for more. This has unlimited potential!

LtCreed: I enjoyed the chapters that are out so far and highly recommend reading it.
The world building is amazing and the characters are great. (the most important part IMO because it doesn’t matter if the novel has everything else going for it if the characters are **** I won’t read it lol) So far the only gripe I have with it are the grammatical errors I’ve seen here and there but even they were not that bad so I’d say definitely give this one a try.

StenDuring: Despite being labelled as an eastern fantasy, even using a cultivation system, this very much feels like a gritty science fiction. Think Bladerunner with psychic powers added to it.
This review is part of a review swap and valid as of chapter 18.
The story is written in third person point of view past (usually) tense.
If you like your worlds dirty and gritty this is your place. Especially if you like the type of tale that follows someone from rags to… well… we don’t know yet. Power in one way or another, but eighteen chapters we’ve just left the introduction behind us.
If the story develops in the direction I believe it will, then the main character has just finished the deed that forces him to enter the wider world.
If you took note of me referring to this story as science fiction rather than fantasy it’s because the cultivation system is explicitly explained in sci-fi terms and very much not as magic.
So for the stars:
Writing: Three stars. Shaky English paired with undisciplined handling of PoV and tenses detract from the reading experience. A pity because this promises to be a really good story.
Updates: 18 chapters. No complaints. Five stars.
Story: As I wrote earlier, a really good story. Five stars.
Character: It’s hard to have a really good story about a single main character unless that character is well fleshed out. He is. Five stars.
World: Well, I did compare it to Bladerunner. While the setting this far has been physically rather small, not once did I feel crammed in as a reader. Good work and five stars.
This goes into my library in the hopes that the writing gets better.
