Shao Xuan joins a friend in his expedition to a recently discovered archaeological cave.

The world he is in now is still in it’s stone age with primitive tools made of stone and the ways of the people are savage.

A really good novel! I regret not reading it earlier. I always thought the cover art looked kinda dumb and that the summary felt kinda cringy. Caesar felt weird as a name initially, but I'm used to it now.

MC's stoic (but inwardly more funny) and is strong and smart. Not a lot of idiocy. Sure, he has moments where suggests a dumb thing, that's really rare and because he's unused to the place. Unlike some other MCs, MC doesn't go out of the way to 'invent' stuff. He does... more>> bring in some new stuff, but it isn't overly exaggerated. Oh, MC gets lucky, but the plot armor isn't serious. He's got some mysterious benefits *cough* mild cheats *cough* but it's in an acceptable range. He just comes off as a young genius in a strong tribe.

Mysterious powers and stuff. We have no idea how exactly MC got transferred and got some cheats. We know why, but not really. The MC's tribe is also in a slightly weird situation and a bit of mystery that's getting slowly revealed.

MC's tribe is strong, but separated from others. They're simple-minded, but not actually dumb like barbarians. MC has good/complex/interesting relationships with his tribe members. Master relationships are quite heartwarming.

Totem power is cool. Although the story is set in tribal/slightly primitive society, it's not dumb. It's not overly simplistic. It's a slightly developed tribal society. It's one of the first I've read, (Pursuit of Truth's good too! Kinda similar but POT has a lot more emotion/tragedy) but it's fun to read. The story might be predictable, but it's not exactly always possible to figure out what will happen exactly.

Story's got it's hype moments, but there's quite a bit of normal, slice of life-y moments. Don't get bored by the slowish start; it gets more interesting later.

MC's got some cool pets! They're not annoying and I think they're fun and cute.

No romance. MC's not a dude that saves every women. Also, women aren't completely weak and useless even if males are generally stronger. There hasn't been a super important strong female main character though.

Spoiler

Not all tribes are similar! MC finds other tribes later and other lost wanderers of his tribe.

I quite enjoyed this story espicially the world building part. MC is the usual calm and collected character and normally thinks before taking actions. The other characters in his tribe are also unique in their own way. Overall the story is exellent and so far the pace has been good

I love this novel. Reading ahead I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. Though there isn't much romance, girls and women do appear. Unlike most novels women are seen as just like any other person apart of a tribe and not as a s*xual/ love interest. For those afraid, yes the MC gets alot of attraction from females at certain points but it isn't exaggerated. It isnt that kind of story.

The MC is smart and a pioneer. He doesn't and does use his memories of his past life. He... more>> doesn't remember much with regards to how he lived as he has said numerous time but his thinking process is more advanced and ideas make him stronger than his peers as well as bring his tribe back to former glory. He is hardworking as well as calm and decisive. He is not much of a chatterbox like most MCs and gets sh*t done.

I admire that he isn't a very emotional character and many people come to be in fear and awe of his power. If he says or do something with his powers that people do not understand instead of lying about it he just says it's intuition or a guess. No big deal. The guy is just smooth like that. What's even greater is that he never once treated people who has more power than him with any special consideration or his elders like his elders. He carries himself like a leader from the start until he truly becomes one.

I would say more regarding that but I feel it's more exciting to discover the powers of his tribe and other characters in the future than me saying it. It would be a disservice to this great story spoiling the MCs journey thus far into the world and must see it yourself to really appreciate it.

The world building is phenomenal and characters are very interesting. It's so great I'm having a hard time saying everything good about it.

The MC does have enemies as he does allies which bring his tribe slowly to the top. He isnt kill happy and even those that offend him has thier uses. (He'll still beat them to a pulp though) He's ruthless when necessary as well as kind. Im not sure if he's OP but he's far from weak as there are many powers he cannot overcome but his strength isn't just physical and being cunning. He's a visionary.

I know it may be just my own exaggeration but he's the most perfect MC I've seen in a long time and the story is A1. 10/10 <<less

Good read and pretty interesting novel. Not a typical transport to another world or rebirth novel... no crazy family or village/city that thinks the MC is trash. Smart character just trying to survive, likable and relatable supporting characters. Looking forward to more from the TL group and the story!

A unique xianxia story without cliche bullying, trash MC, etc.

But it's a bit boring, especially when there is no romance. All the story describe is just how the people never paid attention how the male dressed, whether they are nude or not?

But hey, no one ever mentioned a chick. Cough, it's a bit lonely.

Most probably one of the few novels on this website that has nothing to do with xianxia, xuanhuan, wuxia or fantasy. The only genre that stands out is the supernatural. With this as the base, both the action and the adventure becomes an unforgettable ride.

The protagonist is in the top three of the most down to earth. His progress from a simple ant towards a core member of the tribe is so well done that at some point you even forget how relatively simple is this story compared to... more>> many others. Especially the action and the romance.

The action in this novel doesn't follow the usual cliche where arrogant enemies pick fights with the protagonist for any reason whatsoever or where the protagonist always seeks power and doesn't care how many he has to kill. In this novel the action is based on the fight against nature, which in that world is downright scary.
Spoiler

Only recently the action started to include humans as enemies.

[collapse]

As for romance, while many enjoy seeing the protagonist surrounded by beauties that have a backbone and can contribute towards the protagonist rise to glory, in this case we actually get a more primitive mindset. Women are more important than men for their role in procreating, which also downsizes their importance in fighting. Only a few of them have an active part in the tribe hunts.

Overall, the most important thing is to see this novel as an entire different creature compared to almost all other popular novels around here. Enjoy the supernatural ride, where dangers can come from the most harmless things possible while the power only comes from mysterious sources and only after going through a lot of hardships.

I've read up quite ahead on raws with MTLs and it is still very good. Very different from regular cultivation grinding and slaughtering of the random enemies, resource hunting and consuming. It is very refreshing for me.

Ok, I'll make a short review so I don't spoil it for any of you.

This story start like any other reincarnation Xianxia story but it doesn't stay that way for long, after a few chapters you will remark that the author doesn't take the paths of plot we usually read about, its not about conquering the world/becoming strongest/Scoring women, the story is all about the journey and the adventure nothing more nothing less, the author doesn't try to sell us sh*t plot for Gold like most other authors do,... more>> he keep it real and honest and that's why you won't feel any disappointment or annoyance.

Also I've seen people say the MC doesn't use his knowledge to make his tribe better, I can spoil you a dozen things he helped his tribe with his knowledge but since you people don't read past chapter 30 and already pull the hammer down I won't waste my energy for you.

I enjoyed the journey, the friendships, the action and the honesty ! <<less

The story is interesting, the author doesn't rush things and instead set the atmosphere in a way to allow us to build the general scenery steadily. In short, it's a good story with many strong points such as an original MC who isn't arrogant neither overpowered. But then why do I only give this 3 stars? There are 2 main reasons :
1. It's lacking romance, it's lonely : (
2. Rather than being an action type Novel, it's rather a Slice of Life with a bit of movement. Althrough... more>> it shouldn't be displeasing to some people, I was sometimes bored. Until now (c55), I've not felt the "chill" I've always liked to feel in action/adventure type novels.

I have read all the raws and I have to say, what an amazing read! The pace is snail-pace but it has a solid plot and amazing world building. We don't just get stuck in his tribe's hunting life stories, there are more exploration and mysteries regarding the world outside his tribe. But honestly, what marvel me the most is actually the protagonist's personality. He is intelligent, brave, wise, kind and yet ruthless at the same time. He knows when he has to follow the flow and when he has... more>> to be creative. From a young leader of cave orphans to a dependable leader of mankind. His progress is beautiful to watch.

The lack of romance might put off some people, but there is actually a hint of romance, it's so small that you might even miss it. And what's great is that the MC doesn't get intimidated or swayed by women (Heck, there are more interaction of him with Cha cha the bird than him with females! Lol) or people with bad motives, he is very decisive and smart. There is a conclusion of his relationship near the ending too. I wish I could read more of his journey and how he advance the civilization. It's just not enough.

Updated review. Rating of 3/5, and translation is 5/5.

[[5 star = almost all readers will enjoy. 4 star = majority of readers will enjoy. 3 star = 50/50. 2 star = a niche audience might enjoy. 1 star = even the niche audience might not enjoy. ]]

[[5/5 = Minor spelling and grammar errors. 4/5 = occasional major grammar errors, no loss of meaning. 3/5 = common major grammar errors or some loss of meaning. 2/5 = difficulty understanding story. 1/5 = unreadable. ]]

MC is a university-aged Chinese guy... more>> who, after touching a magic stone at an archeological site, transports into the body of a dying 9-year-old orphan boy in a late Stone Age society. Think pre-agriculture but post-writing. There isn't a special magic system, but some kind of mystical superstrength and herbalism. No magical creatures or races, but the animals are ugly, large, and dangerous. There's no journeying, significant combat, wars, romance, or technology gap/cultivation. Which leads to my main criticism about the content, and my main one about the style.

There is very little going on, especially in the first 40 or so chapters. It's slice of life about MC looking for stones, crafting stones, and finding sources of food. There is little progression of the MC until he gets his super powers, which aren't out of the ordinary until he begins to unlock more abilities. Afterwards, things actually start to happen, mostly hunting and related activities. The content becomes somewhat more exciting, and the MC begins to interact with more characters.

However, even though the content progressively becomes more interesting, the writing style does not. It's very redundant and full of self-explanatory or irrelevant details. It feels like how kids will repeat the same thing over and over in different ways, or add unnecessary information, in order to make their essays longer. Additionally, the style is also very matter-of-fact, not much personality (personality of characters, relationships, tension, suspense, mystery, etc.).

Before chapters 40-50, I initially gave this series 2 stars because it was extremely boring. Then the content became much better, so I gave it 3-3. 5 stars. But because the writing style hasn't improved, I think it is solidly a 3. I think half of readers who pick this up would lose interest at some point, especially the early chapters. But the story has enough content to maybe keep the other half hanging on. I think if you have lots of free time, wait until after c40's before deciding whether or not to drop. But if you don't have free time and have other series on your to-read list, maybe read those first.

Also, I'm not sure why the title has "Wars" in it, so far all the combat is just hunting ugly animals.

Some people complain about lack of humour or romance, but please note that this is set in an alternate universe stone age where everyday is a struggle for survival. Not sure if it makes sense for people to be that much concerned about romance when they can barely survive. It is true that that the story telling is a bit dry, but that's just the authors style and it's humorous in its own subtle way (how people think of food like gold etc). On the "action", looks like things are... more>> picking up. I am giving it a tentative 5 just based on the very non-standard world building and theme for this website.

As for now, this novel is pleasing to read. This author did a great job in creating an interesting and exciting novel without having most characters evil. Unlike most xianxia novel which solely focus in having the characters around the MC antagonistic, this one really have good intentioned characters and of course with bearable complications. I can't help but look forward for more.

5/5 It starts off slow, and I felt that this wouldn't be better than a 3. 5/5 at the best. But as the story progresses, it just keeps getting better and better. The world is far more complex than it would seem in the beginning, and the story is also not as simple as you would have thought. There is plenty of mystery to keep you hooked, and the MC is a fun character to follow.

A great story that ended up surprising me.

A different type of novel. A different type of MC. A different type of cultivation. A different type of setting and a different type of side characters - and all these in a good way.

I strongly recommend this novel for those that want a decent MC, a MC that doesn't think like a psychopath. It's a MC that simply tries to integrate in the tribal society that he had wounded up in. Don't expect the MC slaughtering arrogant douchebags and don't expect the MC to be the once-in-a-thousand-years type... more>> of genius that doesn't put anyone in his eyes

This novel also lacks the rather embarrassing exaggerations of the usual xianxia - you'll not read about castles of 99999999 km in length and other similar bullsh*t.

It's a very good novel, a very unique novel, without the usual mindless slaughter and harem crap. It's a strong 5 stars from me <<less

Recommended to read. The story itself is like a slice of life at first and there is little to no humour and romances. Development is slow and world building is much on point
The side characters are given a set of personality and is growing alongside MC
Villains/archenemies wasn't completely brainless
The details are exquisite and the story itself is engaging
Plot armour is thick, but ignorable since the logic was played well, so far
4. 5/5 I enjoyed it

Novel is really good

I finished reading raws.

The story was not centered in romance. Its not like some other stories who have women with beauties that can overturn countries in which the author describe their beauty excessively. In this story, beauty was less significant because they don't put much importance to it but overall all women here were important. Survival was vital in this story. Its more like adventure, ancient themed life, action and supernaturals. It was really entertaining and interesting with some comedic atmosphere.

... more>> Slice of life.

There were some whos complaining about lacking of romance but the good plot of the story makes up for the lack of romance.

But theres actually hint of romance.

Spoiler

The MC got married and with children.

[collapse]

What happen after the ending of chapter 844? Theres still few extra chapters left after 844, its like an epilogue.

Note: The spoilers were taken from the extra chapters and not from the 844 chapters.

Questions below:

Spoiler

1. As for romance or lets say who's the woman he ended up to?

2. What happened to the transaction area.

3. How old was the MC in the extra chapters?

4. What happened to both cities and slave masters?

[collapse]

Answers below:

Spoiler

1. GuI zhe or Guizhi... the new shaman/witch girl...
They had 2 children or more, dont know the exact number of children, my reading comprehension in raws isn't that good, somewhat fuzzy... And I think the children were named after their father Shao Xuan. The child who first introduced was Shao Duo who loves hunting and Shao Xu is the younger brother who likes studying medicinal plants/herbs rather than hunting.

2. The transaction area built by the flaming horn tribe became the largest transaction city in the continent. It was named flame river city adapted from the previous name flame river transaction area.

3. Well dont know exactly, many years had been passed since then after the ending chapter 844 so maybe his age was in between late 30's to mid 40's...

4. They ended up cooperating with the MC. they had no choice actually...

The extra chapter also tells about the heir of YI Family.

These infos were from raws extra chapters. For those who have better comprehension in raws you can visit sites with orig chinese text. <<less

Original concept with strong and intelligent MC. MC is very young and so far the story has been mostly world building and MC adapting and learning to survive in a savage fantasy Stone Age tribal world. There's totemic cultivation system, but it hasn't been fully explained yet.

Being a person from the modern world, the MC obviously has better knowledge on how to use tools in the stoneage which gives him an edge over the others.

Surprisingly they didn't start off with when he first woke up but at a point after some months have passed after being transported. The intro briefly described him quickly learning the ways of how a 'savage' orphan child would act in a cave full of them and skipped the otherwise lengthy introduction.

The people apparently will awaken totem powers at around... more>> 10 years of age and do all those superhuman feats (ie jump power/ muscle power). Nothing magical as of yet, I hope it will stay a little more grounded to reality.

Interesting and exciting. It is about a boy who was transported back to prehistoric land, where savage and humanity is coexisting each other. Don't expect any of romance, harem or some sh*t like that, because in this world survival to the fittest is a top priority than that farce. The MC's character is not bad, sensible, and cool-headed. Nothing like your general Xuanhuan like "trash, trash bin, some sh*t" line you would found in those novel.

I, hereby recommend you to read this novel.

Reviewed at c55, rated 4.

Chronicles of Primordial Wars is interesting, but the development is rather dry. It tells the story of a young man who suddenly woke up in the body of an orphan child in ancient stone age (?). Many mysteries abounded around the MC as he grew stronger, and this story was mostly about these mysteries and how the MC struggled to survive in the harsh new world, instead of simply about fighting evils and corrupted people.

Theme-wise, it's strong and attractive. However, there's not much humor,... more>> romance or heart-shaking twists so far. Definitely not a shallow read, but less entertaining for those who likes their novels with a bit more hooks. Still, I'm open to hike the rate up if things got more lively in the future.
