Honestly, this book is unique in a sense. Not great but not bad either.

In a way, there is no family, clan or superpower holding him down and dealing with political bs (right now) like 99.99% of xianxia has.

Everything is all about completing the mission, being the mission and interacting with characters that are humourous in their own ways.

... more>> Pros -

-No sticking his nose in other people's business or being a shining white knight helping damsel in distress just to force the plot

-Good interaction with friends (although how they met and the fact that they all have big background makes me feel its a bit forced)

-Lack of cardboard characters (especially females, god i hate dumb brains who open their legs the minute they lay eyes on mc) yay

-No being sidelined from the plot (which is currently the missions he's being handed as being the plot atm)

-Not a lunatic, blood sucking warrior, a rapist, a trash talking justifying wannabe or longwinded mc. He's calm and clear about his priorities.

Cons -

-Mary Sue with no explanation on how he came about these knowledge (like understanding cryptography, science, engineering etc)

-Author doesn't understand the difference between memorising stuff (eidetic memory) and understanding them. There is a big bloody difference, then again this isn't a reality book but fantasy.

-Quite a few deus ex machina moments to exemplify the mc awesome, which i find idiotic.

For now, its a 3.5 <<less

This is poorly written novel. The mc is a cardboard cutout, and a complete mary sue. The mc has a past with a ex-girlfriend who died to genetic problems, gives a tragic and heartwarming past for the mc but it is never explained in anyway. What is even the point of mentioning her? Additionally the people he interacts with are all incredibly stilted and unnatural.

The world is a sci-fi and people are divided by the genetic levels.The mc starts out f-rank, the lowest genetic score without detriments and this... more>> lasts for a total of 5 chapters before he gains a cheat skill which allows him to immediately raise his genetic score, and control every feature of his body. What is even the point of making the character F rank if it lasts for three chapters before he finds the cheat skill which makes him op? After he gets his cheat skill he immediately leaves the planet, and then gets in a serious of events where the mc is a total mary sue. ( i.e perfect in everyway and loved by everone). I feel like everything that happens to him is so extremely forced and unlikely.

This reads like a fan ficition pulled from but proof read. Read this if you want to read about cardboard Mary Sue in pointless story. <<less

Writing resembles TJSS' Skyfire Avenue a lot right now, but that can't quite be helped given the setting and progression of the plot. In terms of overall quality I wouldn't rate the prose as solidly as I would Skyfire's. I'd put that more on the author perhaps than the translator as Etvo and her crew are a crack team of beasts. Craxuan (mispronounced pun intended) among them.

The MC is a bit of a dead fish at this point - I'd like somebody to piss him off, get some kind of... more>> reaction from him. We know he has a past and a goal but there's too little to really interface with right now as a reader. He's one cool cucumber. Being, for some reason, a regular victim of kidnapping doesn't seem to faze him in the slightest. Maybe it's his low-genome upbringing.

Either way, I love the world building, which I would also compare very similarly to Skyfire but with an emphasis on inherent genetics and more space opera, reminiscent of "unlocking" as well as some of the sci-fi film action in Terror Infinity that is currently on WW.

This novel has a ton of potential and I look forward to seeing where it goes. I'm giving it five stars despite overall feeling it reaching only about 4 because I'd like to promote its popularity and counter the 1* reviews that give no justification for their ratings. Happy reading!

UPDATE as of Ch24, I'm liking Cillin more and more as he deals with new situations and unveils new reactions. The expanding cast of side-characters all seem well-constructed. Be warned if you don't like space-college elements, those are coming heavy and fast, but they're being exceptionally well done. Somewhat like Tempest of the Stellar War at a very basic level, but upgraded to the level of planet-school and with a totally different trajectory given the MC and his reasons for being there. Excited to see the opportunities Cillin will create for himself with his "I give f*cks, but I steal them from other people first" attitude. Keep it up, Craxuan. <<less

I absolute am in love with this novel and to be honest it start to get interesting around the 15th? chapter. I do think the power level and strength can be developed better. Besides, the power level I like concept of genes ranking and the story development is very incredibly fun to read.

A modern storyline. A nice sci-if novel with an interesting setting. A setting that is easier to relate to than mountaintops and sects.

The writing is nice, not repetitive or filled with exposition. Translation seems nice, and edited nicely.

This is worth at least trying a few chapters. I'm enjoying it a lot.

It isn't really that similar with Skyfire Avenue, its just that there are few good futuristic novels to make comparison with. The MC here isn't as strong as the one in Skyfire Avenue (for now at least) , nor is he a idealistic high class MC but instead a pragmatic Dark Horse kind of MC instead.

Traditional clan-families, being son-of gives you a privileged position in a planet-sized institution, words like "background" and "backing" thrown here and there. The author obviously don't know that not all societies are organised by Guanxi and turned the whole galaxy in a technologically futuristic China that kept it's current social organisation.

I love it because the MC is quite adorable (for me).The plot is raising consistently and totally interesting. The MC's friend is a very good supporting character... it makes the MC more gentle and friendlier.Although the story is quite unbelievable but in a humorous way. I totally like the mindset that the MC have (totally my taste^_^) lets see how far SRH can go... Fighting!!

I really like this Series! I'm not really a critique who likes to demean the plot of a novel . I'm the type to fall for the characters interaction. I love the MC because unlike other novels he had real talent and cool temperament. He's not hotheaded and he's very amiable. Just imagining him make me blush. I think it's in the preference but if you like a cool kick ass MC who have a healthy environment and quirky friends who is plentifully loyal and practically a partner in... more>> crime then you should try this novel!

I also like the build-up of the relationship. A master who treats him as a son and like to squish his cheeks like a little kid. Friends who have talents comparable to the MC and Action filled with many amazing scenes of badasshness.

The mc is like a shining star constraining its brilliance as it hid among's the sea of million stars. It also have a dramatic feeling, you know a build up of anticipation of whats going to happen next. The mysteriousness of his birth, the thrill of a mission given to him by his foster father, and the anticipation of a secret mission he's undergoing under the douance family.

I realy hope that they update a little faster. Teehee! XOXO (A wish of an avid reader) <3

You should try to read this if you like those mention above. But for me this is a very good read. XOXO <<less

I want to give this a 4, but after reading this far I am finding that the chapters are becoming increasingly laced with filler. There are only 450 chapters. Why then, author, are you wasting so many words on reactions, predictions, worthless descriptions of things that do not need to be described or worthless explanations of the most self explanatory things. I don't care what this minor side character and his whole group of friends thinks about the small consequence tournament match the MC just won. Move on with the... more>> story already! Entire half chapters are wasted on this, and I am finding myself skimming more as the chapter count increases. <<less

Edit chapter 85: Really loving this series. And tbh there's too little of this genre that are being translated right now so if there's anyone that loves action packed sci fi novel, then why don't you give this a try? And what I love with this novel is that the interaction between the Mc and his gang/friends is really funny and interesting. The only downside for me is that Mc is sooo Op compared to his peers and other so there's no tension at all for him now.

I hardly write reviews but honestly this book truly struck me, to be honest i wasn't really keen on it when i read the synopsis and saw that galactic dark net and swallowed star are the recommended similar novels due to various reasons which caused me to drop those novels but mostly because they started out strong and just kept going downhill non stop, i truly hope it isn't the same for this novel but i doubt it because its only 400+ chapters long which i'm looking forward to reading... more>> as its translated!

Moving on.. first of all the MC isn't an idiot, he isn't a pervert and he isn't full of himself. On the contrary, he's quite smart even before becoming OP (which happens in the first few chapters), he's hard working, persevering and he's loyal to his lover (i wont go into it too much but you'll understand if you read the first few chapters). In addition, he on the contrary shows off when it's required of him and super low key when necessary which is a trait very rarely seen in CN MC's.

I wont make one of those super long reviews, so i'll end it here but i recommend you give it a shot because i think it's worth it and it's much better then galactic dark net, swallowed star and the likes. But lastly and most importantly, I'd like to point out that the translator does an excellent job in translating and the editor is top notch too, sure you might find a mistake here and there but you gotta remember they're human, just like you and me so there's bound to be a comma out of place or a spelling error every now and then! But it's not as common as a lot of other works out there and they truly have done an excellent job so far, Thank You for your hard work so far and i'm looking forward to new releases soon! XD <<less

When I first picked up this novel I thought "this has potential, I want to see where it goes." Well, it went over the top... in an unbelievable but humorous way.

The MC can do anything with no effort, and do it better then anyone else. No back story or explanation necessary; he is just that awesome I guess.

We get an unnecessary school arc that makes no sense at all because of plot armor... or to let us bask in the MC's aura of awesomeness.

Despite being somewhat trite I actually enjoy... more>> reading the next absurd thing the MC will do. <<less

To be completely honest, this novel is pretty okay, (IMO) not too good, but not too bad. It gives of a slightly similar vibe to skyfire avenue (as the above has clearly stated), but it think this is just due to the level of technology in the story. Honestly the story hasn't gone that far, but as far as i'm concerned, the novel seems fairly okay.

I dropped this novel back then. I don't know why, but I did it anyways.

So this is a story about a lowly boy who suddenly rose to power after gaining an upgrade on his genetics. At first, I thought the plot was kind of forced cause of the intentional occurance with a person he met at the beggining chapters. I also thought that the Author focuses too much on the mc, well he does but not 'too much'.

That arc's side characters also dissapear after the arc ends and... more>> meets up with the old arc's side characters, quietly maintaining their position in the story. (Review expands as I read more)....

For now, I'd give it a 4/5. <<less
