I LOVE this story oh so SO MUCH.

The translation quality is questionable, as in just marginally more readable than mtl but the story itself is an absolute diamond.

The narrative was wonderful at displaying emotions. I cried like so much < (ಥ ︿ ಥ) >

There's an engaging mystery coupled with a goal that seemed like a straight line but ended up being merged by multiple threads that becomes extra thicc and loop together seamlessly. It truly feels like a short but long read that left me in tears. Joy, happiness,... more>> relief, and sorrow. That was how I felt at the end of it.

There's this squishy family thing going and I'm weak when it comes to fixing a broken family ok. Terrible circumstances, white lies, support, protection, overcoming trauma, acceptance and all that and now I'm crying again QwQ ((Do reach out to other people when you need help yall))

I can't help but find the description up top to be... lacking. Crash course intro. Lucion, our MC, is a warlock. [Not really a spoiler since it's in the first few chps anyways but like I guess I better put it in this spoiler thing :p]-->

Call it medieval but it's almost a witch-hunt type of era for warlocks. He was gifted with the ability to see the red (and blue) strings of fate through the manifestation of his past life memories where he has read a novel in which Lucion was a mid-boss villain dying to his brother. To resist this fate he must sever the lines connecting himself with other relevant people by changing the relationship dynamic. To do that he ends up leading a double life with his feet basically on fire from how much he's moving around to make things work. Boi barely gets any sleep which I find funnysad since stereotypically warlocks are depicted to sleep a lot.


Now I have a very specific favorite kink when it comes to stories. In short, I overwhelmingly love the hurt/comfort genre. There's just something in me that loves it when the MC gets hurt and people worry for them. Specifically, the very visual act of vomiting blood. I like it an unhealthy amount and this story delivers. If anyone else crave this type of stories go check out my lovingly tailored Rec List *cough*

Anyway, enough with the shameless plug, due to my bias I fell hard for TCF and felt like nothing else could beat that level of quality, heart thumping hurt/comfort. Surprise surprise this story not only made the cut but jumped over it in this category. What a treasure for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it was a wild ride. I do hope that future readers will take their time to understand Lucion because he is such a lovely person that was dropped in very terrible circumstances. It was amazing to see him grow, find his happiness, and finally be happy. I'm happy to have read this story, and like Lucion, I wish you all to find your happiness and be happy~ <<less

Has a quite good start, seems to have potential depends on the updates tho and I wanna know how old is he? There seems to be quite a lot to unfold... Nothing is specified yet and seems to take place in the future chapters but there doesn't Seems to be much complaints and the translators are not doing bad, I might change my review after more chapters come out but currently it's quiet steady and seems interesting

The powers are very interesting. If they focus on his development instead of trying to insert political conflicts I think this could be a great novel. Looking forward to future chapters.

5 ☆ for this!

The opening of this novel is particularly unique and interesting. It pique my curiosity the moment I laid eyes on the first chapter, making readers want to immediately turn to read the next chapter.

The character development and plot are so far good enough for me to follow this work for more 200 chapters. It's promising.

The MC, Lucien is smart and opportunistic, he's not the type of MC to be outstandingly intelligent or suspiciously mysterious. Furthermore, I love the fact that the MC is both Lucien and Ha-ram... more>> (MC's past life). Like, in many novels as MCs get reincarnated, they often don't understand the true struggles and difficulties the original characters have to suffer. So, when the MC is both Original Lucien and Ha-ram, I understand the personalities of both characters. <<less

This novel is worth the reading!

The beginning may be slow but the story after a while is really interesting. The writing is not bad, and the plot is good. The novel is about warlocks, black magic and divine power... but I really enjoyed the family side.

An overprotective brother and sister and a father who cares about him. His ties with his family or with his master are something really interesting, whether in the past or in the present.

Lucion is not a main character who is strong from the beginning but... more>> who grows throughout the story.

He has a goal that may be evasive but it's something that he truly deserves. Revelation after revelation, the meaning of his goal, "I want to live", became more deeper.

He has a double life. He lives as Lucion Chronia, and as Hamel, he lives with a mask on, fearing to be rejected and killed as warlock. The development is indeed amazing and emotional, and I really mean it. I'm maybe just too sensitive but I I've cried so many times reading this story.

The writing may be not incredible, but the auhor did a great job to transmit the emotions.

Just by thinking of it, I feel emotional...


While reading, I felt like I was reading "tr*sh of the count's family" and seeing Cale, always coughing blood and overworking.

And the thing I really liked was his relation ship with the other characters like Ale, the organization Lucion created. It felt like a second home. Especially with his family, Heint, Russell and Bethel. The moment where his family discovered that he was a warlock made me cry so much.

The characters are well written and the character development as well. Lucion also has a character development. I felt like a proud mother watching his child growing T^T

I would have liked to know more about his mother too, we still don't know where her grave is.

Interesting but frustrating.

When writing dialogue, proper structure is important. The reader should effortlessly be able to tell who's speaking.
That's not the case here.

The less than stellar characterization means, among the human characters, the dialogue isn't differentiated enough to easily tell who's speaking.

... more>> A lot of sentences are so oddly phrased that they feel detached from the topic at hand. It's not always the case but it happens often enough that you're constantly stopping to mentally correct and attempt to connect the seemingly disparate parts.

It feels like work and after waiting so long for releases, it leaves me tired and unfulfilled.

I'll come back to it in a year in the hope that it'll have improved. <<less

The start of the novel is really great, powers are also interesting and good, the translation is good except in the dialogues it gets confusing like a mtl, but only in dialogues which is gotten better in later chapter, the rest is fine, problem is the speed of uploading, there are too big of gap between each release, maybe cause its not famous yet, I hope it picks up pace between the reader and translator.

This novel has interesting concept, family love and story where I enjoy

But the downside is the writing. I find the way of writing is mostly conversation. The explaining of the surrounding or MC's thinking is not enough to get me immerse. And when there are multiple people talking together, it's difficult to catch who talk.

[The current translation also has few errors so it's difficult to understand the story sometime]

In the beginning, the story seem a bit slow while MC try to set up his own foundation.


MC foundation below

    • set up organization - this chapter is boring
    • darkness training - some part fun, some part just like reading boring explanation
    • sword (body) training. - There is brother interaction that I enjoy a lot.
    • getting Ratta, darkness divine beast - At this point of reading, he seem like just simple cute support type.
    • getting non human butler - The writer can portray his history into his personality very well. He is lovable with the way of learning human interaction.
    • making friend - almost sleep on their conversation....

So when it's time for MC to join a banquet... I was like ok, I will be reading another boring arc before he get to action... Then boom!! there is action at banquet and the friend, the non human butler are more useful than I though.

I previously though they are just extra with no purpose from the way the story shown...


Once the action start, I find the story really enjoyable.

MC need to take action while hiding his darkness. He has reliable friends and family, the friend and family worry about him but they also trust his action even he has bad history with handle things.

Actually, I intend to give this 4 but I already click 5 and cannot modify... so here goes.
