Dark King so far can be considered quite good I will not go too deep into the plot cause right now it sounds like the kind of "Let's explore and survive in this world" kind of plot that you can find in other novel such as Chronicles of Primordial Wars. However, it has some illogical moments imo but I will let the story run more before giving a definite judgement on this aspect. Translation wise the first chapters were the best as it was smoother to read somehow. Nonetheless, the... more>> translation stays extremely readable and the pace at the moment is scary but only time will tell if consistency is a value of the TL. All in all, Good read for now. Intriguing story and world building though it can sometime be hard to understand because of the flow. <<less

Somehow the MC dabbles into each and every power faction mentioned in the book. That pale young boy practically disappears within the first or second arc and he basically uses his high IQ to create/implement easy to manufacture techs from the past modern world.

Because of his intelligence he's portrayed as a calm, analytical and wise beyond his age character and surprisingly, there's that bit of human darkness in his heart despite being a person from past 'peaceful' times unlike the current world it is today.

You get to see his... more>> surface and 'underworld' sides which he juggles to and fro often. Which I really wonder how does he even find the time to do all the things from each faction. -sidenote that timeskips can range from weeks to months to years- <<less

Read this story! Well written, Descriptive and intriguing. Very, very good. Its just a fledgling translation now but it has amazing potential. Story so far concentrated on buliding characters and world, and thats a good thing, has much more of a rich story feel with more depth than many novels. Characters are complex and engaging. Amazing attention to detail and realistic actions. Excellent world building with well-built and rich environment, the post-apocalytpic setting allows a blend of eras with a historic aristocratic society while allowing the possibility of technology. Eagerly... more>> awaiting more of this story, can't wait to see where it goes. <<less

The author was being creative when he created the world. He ignored many of the lazy cliches when writing this. We have a post apocalyptic society that lives in a walled off city surrounded by zombies, mutants, and alchemists ( evil scientists). The main character utilizes a data drive filled with the knowledge of mankind before the Apocalypse to his needs. The church which controls this walled city has been shown to have advanced technology themselves while the city lives in a dark ages standards. The main character's current job... more>> is a scavenger, going into dangerous surroundings full of monsters to collect pre-apocolyptic items. While I can't say that we have gotten much plot yet as it has just gotten past the "set up" stage of novels, I eagerly await future updates to see where the plot takes us.

While one downside to me is that the main character is a bit of a Mary sue, so far it has not been an major flaw. There was just one chapter where it talks about the main character (or his sister) getting accepted into harvard at twelve years old which made me cringe.

5/5 I will update in the future <<less

Usually it's easy to read the plot or see the direction it will go... but this story has me on edge. There are so many questions, and twists that I found myself at the end of current chapters, before I knew it.

A promising Chinese novel with an interesting premise. The plot is quite unique compared to its contemporaries. However, the way it is written, such that dialogues and the flow of the story tend to sound awkward, makes it quite hard to smoothly follow the progression of events.
