I love love LOVE this. Only 12 available chapters and I'm already loving the characters and pairings-- Bai Jing and Xiao Sa, Wang Xuebing and Cao Le. I never thought I'd find a very promising zombie apocalypse, time leap to the past, psychic thingamajigs, and YAOI. *Dreamy sigh* Be still my heart.

... more>>

The lead is someone who died during a future filled with advanced zombies and mutated animals after experiencing the pain of betrayal, which is also somewhat brought about by his previous actions and behavior. Just when he thought that it's the end, he wakes up and found himself back a year before the tragedy struck. He used to be an arrogant, rich young Master, but is also the spoiled illegitimate son of a politician whose wife has connections with the military.

Aside from returning to the past, he awakens an ability, a mutated space dimension in his mind that can be controlled with psychic powers or something-- and an obsession with Xiao Sa, someone who has saved him and helped him a lot to learn how to survive in the disorder of the apocalypse. Xiao Sa seems to have some feelings for him which the MC failed to realize nor appreciate in his previous life. Even after going back to the past, he still isn't aware of his own feelings for the guy, though his preparation seemed to be centered all for Xiao Sa (he wanted to take care of cows in his space so that Xiao Sa will have some beef to eat when the apocalypse comes. Or hoarding clothes of different styles which are mostly Xiao Sa's sizes. I thought that was sweet.)

Bai Jing's is over-the-top with his preparations but then, he is preparing for a zombie apocalypse. His obsession with Xiao Sa is also pretty tame compared to Sangjin (?) 's obsession to be Hansoo's" friend" in Reincarnator (totally shipping them) but it's still giving the story darker tones like Kill the Lights vibes.


I'm very excited for the next chapters. <<less

I'm happy to read this novel after the Dominion's End😢😢😢😢😢


Yup! Just like Dominion's End, and many more ! BUT what I like about this kind of Novel is that they have the same theme but it differs on the plot!

I just hope that if something Apocalyptic happens to this world then I would first like to have space ring that only I could access and I will fill it with lots and lots of food then before the Apocalypse happens I would to know it before 1... more>> year so that I can prepare like training some shooting and also my body. I also want to have superpowers like umm... strong ice magic?! Then, build my house to be bulletproof and a fortress.

Then, I will get ready to seclude myself!

But that would be better if I'm with my family. <<less

So far this story seems promising. While its tagged as yaoi there's almost no signs of it 10 chapters in. The MC doesn't even seem Romanticly inclined. Just feels guilt and acknowledges that he was an ungrateful bastard and that he really was treated well. With the history given it seems logical. The story focuses the upcomming apocolypse and building the protagonist character. The MC is a bit unique. Originaly a typical entitled, rich daddy's boy with some underlying insecurities that drove him to seek attention. After returning from the... more>> apocolypse he's now a bitter, disalusioned to the schemes of others. The author uses the MC's inner dialogue disparaging his old self to set up and describe the current situation while also building his character. It's interesting and does both at once without dragging on.

Translation is a but rough but acceptable. <<less

Based on the first three chapters, this novel seems very promising. I wouldn't judge this novel based on the summary provided in NU or the fact that it has Yaoi as one of its genres. If you want to skip my longwinded - might not make sense - review below, I suggest reading the first three chapters before you judge. For one thing, the main character is already acting like your average xianxia MC - what with the cold, hard logic and indifference that was cultivated with the help of... more>> betrayal and torture (don't worry, as of yet it wasn't described in great detail) and while the MC clutches to the "one man" as the purpose of his renewed life, it doesn't seem as if this will turn into a gross mushy mushy ick ick story that most people expect from Yaoi.

Actually, if I was to describe what I think the relationship will turn out to be like, I would recommend Kill the Lights, or any other stereotypical romance you see on NU such as all the pretty awesome girl transmigrates into ugly useless girl who's actually really pretty and shiz stories (basically the cold hearted male paired with bad ass female, not the shoujo sissy, version).

The zombie/apocalypse part of the story also seems to be interesting as it mixes dimension magic that's activated by qi with your apocalypse part. If I was to liken the zombie part to another novel, I would suggest God and Devil world (if this is the novel im thinking about, it had beginner villages and zombies that advanced ranks as time went on)

All in all, the story seems like it will be dark and bad ass and I can not wait for this to be continued. Bye~ <<less

I love zombie stories (fanfiction, movies, etc.)

during the one-year time frame, readers would acquire a sense of anticipation with what is to come as the story progresses.

I appreciate the author's attention to detail. Instead of just flippantly mentioning about the MC's preparation, readers will actually witness a lot of his preparations for the upcoming zombie apocalypse. To some, it may come off as unnecessary. However, the author does not drag it on too much. They only ponder on the important factors.

Moreover, we actually get to see more of how... more>> the characters relate to each other (alliances, association, and future events that come with it), which will most likely play a big role in the future. So, we do get to know more about their characters, as well.

Even if I did scoff at the fact that there were too many elements (zombie apocalypse + 'wuxia' + reincarnation), it is not confusing at all. Since, the author really takes their time to make sense out of all of it. In the end, even if it is a bit odd, readers will just have to accept that it is how it is. However, this does not negate the fact that it is a great novel.

Overall, it comes off as a well-balanced, unique, and interesting read. <<less

i was really hesitating between giving 3 or 4 stars. It's still quite early but I feel disappointed how the MC awesomeness, his rough temperament, his arrogance and ability got downplayed and didn't last long when ML appeared. What I loved at the beginning was how our MC didn't care about anyone, was feared and respected. Basically nobody could touch him. But after 30 chapters or so that cruel hearted young master started leaning on ML more and more and became quite. What pisses me off is the degrading words... more>> the ML uses for MC. "Wife", "sister in law", and the worst; "little kitten".

Point is that I felt it was a shame how MC was no longer as powerful and decisive after ML appeared. Makes me almost hate ML and how they 'cuddle' in front of others which just serves to place MC as a tamed rabbit. And now he's completely depended on ML.

Edit: after 75 chapters I can honestly say this deserves no more than 2 stars. MC has completely lost his balls and asks ML for permission for EVERYTHING. Don´t get me wrong, if you like cute tsundere MC then I´m sure you´ll enjoy this novel but I felt disappointed and cheated since Jing was introduced as an alpha time bomb but after losing his arrogance and power, he´s grown into an annoying, shortsighted, ignorant, pampered little master and gets fondled into ML´s palms everyday like a precious gem. This is the apocalypse after all, and I wanted a badass MC so so badly. sigh.... such wasted potential <<less

Cute story of a reborn young master who becomes OP because of his knowledge and powers carried over from his life before rebirth. MC and ML's interactions are extremely sweet. Unlike rebirth stories with female protagonists (from waste to genius), this one doesn't have the cliche of revenge on everybody who did MC wrong in the previous life, even if they didn't do anything to him yet. MC (and ML, for that matter), only deal with people who act against them first. Of course, the people who wronged him in... more>> his last lifetime still end up doing things that lead them on the path of no return.

Romance is slower, as MC and ML only meet in the story, I believe, in like chapter 24 or 25, and have s*xy time probably when the chapters were in their 70's, or 80's. It's more plot-based on how different MC makes his life with ML in this lifetime, instead of the last (where ML dies to save MC, and MC dies after years being a test subject in a research facility). But their relationship makes a lot more sense than fast BLs, as it progresses from ML chasing after MC, explaining ML's obsession with MC in the first lifetime, and how they go from strangers to lovers.

Basically, reading this novel will not waste your time. It's definitely an amazing read that everybody who loves a feel-good novel will enjoy. But also, don't expect things to make sense all of the time (where do MC's cheats come from? What happens to these people who the author gave complicated backstories to, but never finished writing their endings? Wait- so after all the time that MC spent agonizing over telling ML about being reborn and their relationship in his last lifetime, this never got brought up again?). At times it reads like a zombie apocalypse novel, at times it reads like a xianxia novel, and at other times it reads like a cute BL novel.

Also, on a side note, just letting everyone know why the novel seems to have been cut short so abruptly (no resolution with evil stepmother and father, no extra that shows MC and ML's future, didn't elaborate on what's so special about the meteorites, some loose ends) -- the author's father apparently got colon cancer, and she quit her main job to take care of him. I don't know if that's a contributing factor or not, but it might be part of the reason why she ended the series like this. But I'm not sure either, as she managed to fit in a really cute extra about the little zombie that ends up following MC! (I wanted to read more about the zombies, as that seemed like an extremely interesting part that ended up being ignored). It feels like there was so much more that she could have written for this novel, and I would have enjoyed it all. Or maybe, I feel this way because I wanted it to be longer so I could read more of it! It was just that enjoyable to read.

Props to xiin for picking this up at Isohungry-- I was looking for this novel so I could read it again. Thank you for reminding me of the novel's name! <<less

A fast but very satisfying read. Big Rebirth of MC vibes, with the MC reborn to around a year before the apocalypse, then meeting someone strong who they are able to support to the top. I think both MCs had the space cheat as well. I'm a pretty big fan of the MC here, though he's not that smart as I would usually like, likely due to his previous life's total uselessness. He's definitely grown up and matured a lot from his past life, but there's not much you can... more>> do with a poor foundation. The ML is set up as someone half evil half good, but when they meet it seems like the ML totally indulges the MC, which is adorable. There's not much drama, whether relationship-wise or danger-wise, though I did sometimes get frustrated by how many times the MC denied the ML. I wonder if the MC would ever tell the ML about his rebirth. It'll be a little sad if he doesn't. Though I am happy that he did tell the ML about his space secret relatively early on, and they are pretty damn attached to each other. The ending is kind of anticlimactic lol, with befriending sentient zombies (reminds me of God and Devil World, if I'm not remembering incorrectly), and then just blowing up one of the MC's bigger enemies. Would have liked some epilogues about their relationship, but still satisfied. Recommend. <<less

This story is absolutely amazing and brilliantly crafted. I've read through to the end and it was very satisfying, and the ending was satisfying too!

... more>>

bai jing and xiao sha are a great couple and they love each other a lot. There's a bit of smexy times towards the later chapters, but the story is mostly about their journey to establish their own city and to settle down affairs with bai jing's dad and the zhou family (which hurt bai jing in his past life). They collect a lot of people along the way, and even befriend this cute little zombie at like the last 3 chapters ahahaa


Great read, totally worth it. Highly recommend <<less

It is a lovely story with all the spices. I just wanted to read like 100 more chapters rather than just 130+3. The ending might have been prolonged, it rather looked like abrupt ending.

Story was a good use of previous life knowledge. MC and ML were well crafted out characters. Other side characters are solid too. It is just that sometimes it looked like evading the intensity or avoiding the intense plot on author's part. Like, MC's team was supposed to face 5 strong Zombies but those Zombies attacked the... more>> later team and annihilated it almost. Similarly in the end MC's step mother, there was no direct confrontation, MC hit the button and blew the lab where his mother was supposedly, in the end. So regardless of ups and downs plot was good. <<less

Thank you translators for having found this candy piece and sharing it. Hehe 😆😛 I am actually at chapt 113, and I didn't find a reason to abandon it yet. Althought reading google translate is more of a Sherlock game than anything (exageration). For survival genre, I don't find it too hardcore or repetitive. AND there is romance, oh the fluffliness!

There is credibility, in both (main) characters and the survival thing.

Since its a chinese novel, I'm often afraid of the repetiveness (sorry, don't know how it's spelled), but this novel... more>> is still fine scenario-wise. <<less

This was actually a really good novel, even though I was struggling through with the raws for the majority. Initially, it comes across as another "reborn before the apocalypse, train to survive" novels, but it does a decent job at distinguishing itself from the rest. For one thing, the side characters serve as more than foils to display the MC's awesomeness; they're actually well developed and interesting. In that same vein, the relationship between background characters and our 2 mains are fairly different from most apocalypse stories. Rather than them... more>> being inseparable, will-die-for-each-other besties from chapter 1, we see the MC building relationships with the side characters, so their relationship is genuinely believable and you can't help but enjoy their interactions.

What I really like about this novel, though, is that it takes a fairly interesting approach to the whole zombies and cultivation (not sure what to call it in the story's context).

Namely, I thought it was quite novel that they gave zombies the ability to gain intelligence rather than just strength, and even set up a pretty novel concept of 2 zombies running away to join their base, one to befriend the MC and the other to chase a girl.


Because of that, I had to drop 1 star- the ending really shouldn't have come so soon after whetting my appetite with such an interesting plot point. Add to that the fact that the final confrontation ended pretty quickly, the end of the novel was rushed too much. Still a very enjoyable read, however. <<less

OMG I'm so glad I read this right after Dominion'S End. They are both too good. This is a story about how the MC transport through time a year before and decided to do everything for Xiao sa (or Xiao San) if you are a fan BL (although I'm not there yet, the intense part) then this is worth a read.

Dropped at chapter 48. It was so good until the apocalypse started and the MC started acting all bitchybitchy. I have become so annoyed with him that the interesting setting isn't enough to keep me interested any more.

All the translators did a good job. Thank you for the ride.

I enjoyed this novel a lot. I think the execution of the zombie/apocalypse theme was very good. It's super promising and easy to follow. You get to follow the MC's preparation before the disaster and I found that part extremely satisfying, knowing that his preparations would pay off later on. MC is likeable and a bit cold which was probably a trait he inherited from his past mistakes and his past life.

ML is also likeable and their interactions are cute. Not only is he strong but he supports the MC... more>> with whatever he needs without hesitation and I'm a sucker for male leads like that. Despite this novel being BL, I think that the plot and the writing perfectly blends in with the BL. Often we'll get novels that are so BL focused that the plot becomes a bi product and bad but this novel is none of that.

Definitely a good read for those who want a more plot driven novel instead of a flat novel with BL to compensate for its lacking story. <<less

This is a great read that has had me enthralled from the beginning. It's well-written with distinct characters. The English translation hasn't gotten to the apocalypse yet and is only showing the warning signs so far, but I still couldn't stop reading it. The MC has become a hard-core prepper, and everyone around him thinks he's nuts. He has to squirm to make some sensibility behind his actions, but his attempts to cover-up clearly have holes.

The two leads are hilariously awkward together.

Although this is a romance, it's not so much... more>> that it bogs down the series. It is much more of a survival story, and it's really fun to read. I strongly recommend giving it a try. <<less

Nice story.. Just felt the ending a bit abrupt. No mention how lady zhou and her daughters situation after hardblow. I want to read how they suffer. Plus, no mention on how the MC space happen. I mean MC also curious about red meteor with spring water in his space and the relation between the black meteor outside.

*Note: Eng it's not my first language.

I haven't really read a lot of this zombie apocalypse and super powers genre, but I think it's a pretty good story.

First of all, the quality of the translation it's a delight, so, thank you, translators, *lots of kisses*

... more>> Second, the actual story :D

The MC reborns a year before the start of the apocalypse, and at first I was a little confused because he was having a lot of mood swings, and I somewhere read that that kind of thing bothers some people, but I think it was pretty realistic. In the beginning, he was really broken, mentally and emotionally exhausted (c'mon, he just died) for having the most trusting of his people backstabbing him, the MC was ruthless (having assimilated all that) and started with his preparations for the end of the world, recognizing that between the people who betray him there where actually people who also wanted to protect them, so the MC received them.

The MC background without being a spoiler (hope so) it's that he's the bastard of a very important person in the government, but where our rich and proudful MC wants love, there's only money and false appreciation.

But then, in the first life of the MC, there was this person that actually died and care for him, but he didn't appreciate it, so he wanted to find that person and protect him.

Oh! Also, since the beginning, he started his second life with his ability, hidden space, you know, the one where you can keep a lot of things and has a land, spring water, trees, and blah blah, but it's not thaat large (it seems)

Well, apart from all that, the MC has been ruthless, but also have a soft childlike side (which, again, bothers some people, like c'mon!, why can the MC be like he actually is? He has said it pretty clearly: he's a spoiled child, and even if he suffered on his previous life, he didn't live a lot for a reason), I don't exactly remember his age to be honest (maybe 20s) and what I liked a lot (and consider it funny) was that even he admits he's not the most intelligent of all, he has made mistakes, he doesn't always go away unscratched.

Another thing, if you don't like that he's starting to (sorry for using so much "start" and "that" and the like *sob sob* I'm going to study harder) get intimate to the ML, Xiao San, well, he also stated that he would accept him (didn't exactly know he was pursuing him), but also has not that much idea of being in a nice not toxic relationship, even less with a man, so he is somewhat nervous. But I think that's also cute, only slightly disappointing as I (personally) want more action :) hahhaha <<less
