Little did he know what would await him when he receives summons from his family years later to return to the Northlands and inherit the position of the family head…

This is the tale of his life before the summons…

This is the tale of his journey northward and the allies he gathers along the way…

Thoroughly mediocre overall, but has some redeeming merits.

The worst part of the story is probably the writing. The author hasn't really mastered the principle of "show, don't tell" and resorts to cumbersome flashbacks to build out his world in the beginning. While this does eventually get better, there are plenty of other things to nitpick at, such as the author's obsession with precise numbers when discussing logistics, and a certain lack of consistency in the main character's personality.

However, other than that, the story has several things going for it.... more>> First, unlike many xuanhuan, it starts things off with a main character who is already strong, avoiding the usual state of affairs wherein a modest-seeming but fast-growing cultivator is challenged by a never-ending stream of arrogant idiots with poor pattern recognition. Instead the main character gets started on achieving their ambitions relatively quickly, which is a plus. Unfortunately, it does still fall into the problem of things being a bit too easy for the MC; otherwise I might have rated this higher.

Secondly, the author does manage to include a good deal of secondary characters with interesting personalities, which is a welcome change from many "lone cultivator" stories. This is a real strength of the story and although there are other books which do this better, there are many others that do it much worse.

All in all, it's a story that's probably worth reading, but not until you've already finished better stories. <<less

A huge issue I have with this novel is the loop de loop of repetition of the same plot over and over again.

The MC isn't exciting or very interesting. Sure he has hidden abilities. If i wanted to waste my timeabout stuff like that I could just dream it and it would be better.

Writing is subpar by original author, though there are moments where side characters shine otherwise it's boring. (From RAWS)

Basically filler read. To be fair average isn't HORRIBLE, it's average.

UPDATE 4/1/2017********
If I could summerize Tales of the Reincarnated Lord in a sentence, I'd use "best character development I've ever read from an amateur novel comparable to many published fantasy novels".

The novel keeps getting better. There are a bunch of world/city building novels out there, but this really takes the cake. Why? Alpha MC. That simple. Not only is he smart and quick on his feet, he also is ruthless when need be. It is also a lot more realistic in terms of behavior and not a... more>> harem. Men and women have needs, whether they're sexual or emotional, and TotRL focuses on BOTH unlike some novels...

Another similar novel is Release That Witch which is also really good, but the MC is not alpha, can't battle and is a timid virgin entranced by women, always apologizing. Also, the harem keeps building, so it's very frustrating to read.

Original REVIEW**********

What a joy it has been reading this novel. I won't lie and tell you that the first 30 chapters are rough. Too much info dump, BUT, the story really shines after that. I knew from reading some reviews that I just needed to go through the initial grind to reach the sweet end, and they were right.

ALL the characters have life and personality. This is a masterpiece as far as web novels go. I am not surprised that it's published under Qidian as they have QUALITY novels.

I highly suggest reading this! Sooner or later, this novel will become really popular and I guarantee it. Right now it's kind of a hidden gem.

PS Being a noble back in the day brought a lot more advantages and privileges than just being rich... If you've read the first 30 chapters you'll understand why I say this. <<less

Thus far up to Ch 57, MC hasn't returned to his home land yet. Excruciatingly slow place. The story seems more Slice of Life more than action. All the action is very simplistic with MC accomplishing everything in several moves despite his low level (but OP skills).

If you haven't started this series yet, I'd recommend waiting to just marathon it when a couple of hundred chapters translated are out. It's pretty dry storyline with no real suspense and tension. MC is pretty happy with his life and doesn't seem to... more>> want to strive for more selfish goals other than just accruing money for retirement purposes. His lack of driven desire communicates to a lack of tension or suspense to the reader.

Because of the pace of this storyline, he probably won't even be back in his homeland for another 100 chapters or so.

It's a soul migration story, but MC's history seems pretty shallow. His previous was lived in modern time, but was basically mediocre. In this current world where it seems a bit medieval, MC uses his knowledge to make a quick buck here and there. He also uses his former's life family cultivation skill which gives him more skills than his current level should have. Other than that one cheat which prevents him from leveling up, his personality isn't really fully fleshed out. No tragic events in his former or current history, other than his host's body being exiled in a far away land due to his spoiled behavior 10 years previously.

Overall, uber slow. Ok storyline if you're ok w/ Slice of Life. MC sleeps around mostly w/ his previous ex-girlfriend and prostitutes, but no harem yet. No real romance yet either, other than the failed one w/ his ex. <<less

I thought and hoped that by Chapter 21 that the author would reach a key point in the plot such as Lorist becoming a lord. To my dismay, the chapters so far are only flash backs and info dumbs. However, sometimes the chapters are interesting but my patience is wearing thin from reading all these dumb summary flash back chapters.

I mean, aren't I reading this hoping to see how the main character Lorist manages being a lord? or am i reading this light novel for the overall back story? And... more>> to clarify, the flash backs would have been more interesting if they are not just simple summaries of things happening. For instance, in some flash backs it talks about Lorist beating people or training people but not exactly telling us the whole story. Instead, we are left with he beat some up up and thats it, no action whatsoever talked about. And sure we are given details about how techniques works and Battle force works , just not how he uses them in battles or any action about how he defeated his enemies.

To put it simply, all the chapters so far are merely Lorist having flash backs and interacting with people; one could even say that all the chapters so far is the equivalent of watching anime filler: it doesn't matter and probably has nothing to do with the plot. I'm just hoping at this point that the author is going to move past the flash backs and actually talk more about the present. And hopefully the pacing of the story will improve. <<less

Okay, there are some good things about this series, and there are some bad things. First the good things; the world is interesting, as is the character, the scenario and the translation is good.

Where the series falls down is the long, introspective tales into the pass that ruin the flow of the story; i feel that rather infodumping everything at the beginning, these things should slowly be drawn out in the story; the reader does not have to know the Lore of the world in the first twenty chapters, the... more>> same effect could be replicated by weaving the world's lore into the actual narrative. Same with the love story. I'll continue reading; but if the style doesn't change I think I'll have to drop it. Nyan reserves the right to change this ranking as the story advances <<less

Im not having a good experience reading this just because its not my genre for the introduction part. If you like tragedy, and MC with low ambition, and easily control by surroundings, learn from its mistake and get better, then this is your thing. I prefer the story can be skip where he got titled lord. I really am. Thats why I gave it 4 star hoping it can let bygone past and go to the main story instead.

Too much info dump that sometimes I skipped some to just get into the action. I have a feeling that this might reach a thousand chapters with no clear ending or will get dropped midway.

Some may find this as a good read. But it doesn't fit my taste.

Translation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Flashbacks: 9/11
