This novel scratches all the right itches. The main character seems a bit dull at first, but grows more shrewd quite quickly. There are already hints of some romance, though nothing solid has appeared yet. And the world they live in is quite... brutal? Cold? Callous? Something along those lines. Either way, they don't beat around the bush, and I really appreciate that in a novel. However, from what I've read thus far, the best part of this novel is the detail. Not in the world or the characters, but... more>> just in the sorcery. Everything we've seen thus far about sorcery is very creative, and I find myself really looking forward to finding out more about sorcery itself. <<less

FINAL EDIT (I think) : at (c570)

This has now become one of my top ranked novels. (Again, try not to judge it in the first 100 chapters). Very engaging storyline, and not just a linear progression of power ups. Incredibly rich world building : as time goes on you get exposed more and more to how vast the story world really is and just how much potential it has for more adventures, without getting the feeling of it just being a variant to the bigger world outside the world thing... more>> that IET's novels usually have.

There's quite a bit of character progression, not just in terms of the MC but of the side characters as well. The author explores a lot of the human moments and frailties that the character goes through, and not just his successes.

I believe this novel's formula for success is that the author avoided rushing the MC through power ups, thus avoiding the spiral of having to find ever better loot and general OPness that pervades a lot of novels in this genre.

Spoiler

It's only at the 560th or so chapter that the MC finally got to upgrade himself to a 2nd level sorcerer (sorcerer apprentice -> 1st level sorcerer ->.... -> 9th level

[collapse]

Very highly recommended

EDIT 2: (at c237)

Bumping up my review to a 5. For whoever's going to read this, try not to judge it too harshly based on the first 100 or so chapters. After you get past the initial cliche stuff (annoying audience included), you get treated to a nice story with epic battles.

The MC isn't OP : while he's on top of the food chain for his level, he's not capable of jumping up the ranks so to speak. Instead, he constantly uses his wits and intelligence, and along the way you get treated to his viewpoint which is kinda unique IMO.

Instead of becoming just a series of power ups, you really get treated to a journey across different worlds.

EDIT: (at c150ish)

Fortunately, the novel is progressing better as time goes along. No more instant power ups, more story exposition and character improvement. It reads and feels like a unique novel, not just one of those cloned stuff. Happily upgrading my rating to a 4.

ORIGINAL:

The basic premise is ok, with passing similarities to Warlock of the Magus World, at least in the academy phase. What kinda ruins it for me is how easy the author makes it for the MC

Spoiler

Something the MC researched gives him the ability to make a pheromone perfume. Because of this, he gets into a partnership with a businessman which leads him to earn thousands of magic stones (currency) a month, while the rest of his fellow apprentices can earn around 4 or 5 a month.

For me, the advantage is too much, and not realistic.

[collapse]

The way he keeps running into stuff that he'll need / can use isn't realistic either. A more balanced approach would have been a lot better IMO. Also, I don't like it when scenes events feel like they happen just to give the MC loot. I want a better sense of the story. So far there are also a LOT of author's notes in parenthesis (at least compared to other novels) and more often than not they break immersion.

Anyway, if you can accept that (I guess OP MCs aren't really that rare), so far it seems OK as a binge read. Different varieties of magic plus mad scientist like experiments are a welcome change to the usual xianxia body cultivating thing. <<less

First ten chapters are great. The plot building is great. And character each have its own life its not the usual type of magic novels where MC gets challenged in everything he do fights the arrogant character kill him become powerful type of novel
