Highly recommended!

I read this novel translated in my language (Vietnamese), and it was very good. The main character is a good guy who willing to sacrifice for his friend, beloved one and always want to use his power and knowledge to help people.

You will find that most of the time, he escaped from bad situations not by how his skill are broken (well, a bit :3) but by how he knew about his enemies, his plan and the help from others. At first he just want to survive, then he... more>> has his family, make a better world and to protect it, he must be strong. Prepare to put himself at risks, with a well planed thought and for the sake of other, that what I love about him.

The other characters, the relationships, the RPG like world with races, skill, item, jobs, hidden quest,... are very exciting and well developed.

Again, highly recommended! (Sorry for my english skill :P)

Spoiler

He is so badass when he is not himself LOL. And prepare for his harem and romance, after all, he is "Devil's son-in-law"

I've completed this novel and rewritten the whole review, my personal bias may affect the review so it might not attend to needs of everyone. Please, bear with it!

I can divide this novel into 2 big arcs, 1st one being demon world arc - where MC helps Sia gain the throne, 2nd being whole world arc - where MC adventures into other worlds and discover their possibilities. This divide happens somewhere around 600th chapter.

I would have given this novel

3 stars for the first big arc. But 1 star for the second big arc. Overall I would give this novel a 2.

DIFFERENCE? 1st big arc is more focused on politics, business and romantic aspect. 2nd big arc directly forego politics, business aspect,

it's selling points. It becomes a repeat of plot armor and lucky events, to the point it feels reading the first big arc was very useless.

Overall review:

Good points -

  • Politics -
    This novel did a very good job in political aspect in the first arc so I will consider this to be a good point in this novel, even though its foregone in second arc I will still consider this to be good.
  • Strategies -
    In first arc MC was weak, so he used various military strategies in order to win war, the war which happens for Sia to take over the throne was very exciting. Also political issues which comes after taking over the throne were good. A war which comes after a war also was a nice addition.
  • Plot -
    This novel uses a cliche plot but that doesn't make it bad, its very good just not very different. At least till first big arc I will take plot to be very good. After second big arc it turns into a bad point since everywhere there is a plot armor.

Bad points -


  • MC -
    Like usual chinese mc's his personality is a sucker. Well he admits without luck he isn't omnipotent but even so it doesnt make its taste good. He is a hypocrite, like he knows that a girl likes he will still rather not accept their love when he already had accepted love of over half a dozen females already. Most women would have to turn into half dead in order to prove their love for MC before he will be able to admit it that they love him and he loves them. Take Isabella for example, she turns half dead 2 times because mc's incompetence before he was able to admit that she likes him. He is very afraid of cracks in crystal harem and without his first wife ATHENA he won't able to manage his harem in a world where harem is ever pervasive. It just feels to dull and gives sour vibes. He relies heavily on luck, like literally everything he does is based on luck factor without it, he can't a single thing. Like love of female he keeps denying negative part of himself which pushes over 100 chapters making it give a feel of filler chapters which is really annoying. He couldn't come up with terms with past of the body he took over for like 700 chapters. I mean seriously if you take over a body you at least have to repay him with getting rid of his regrets right? But he just kept running away from all that like a coward.
  • Harem -
    This might be me looking too much into it and might be my personal bias but as I talked about in mc's personality, he just keeps denying women, in end he's supposed to have like 11 women but besides 6-7 he's running away from the rest. Some women like Belina who he fooled didnt get chance to be MC and show her love for MC and are literally forgotten. To me this harem isn't really a good one. It is heavily based upon benefits. How much benefits MC gives them and they fall for him...... I really can't bring myself to call this love. I don't even know how and when MC fall in love with Sia he did so much for her and she just keeps ordering him in return... Also keeps pushing his sister over him. I mean come on giving your sister happiness isnt duty of MC. He might like her as a lil sis but its not his respobility for him to do her husband and yet she keeps forcing MC to accept her. It took 1k chapter for Sia's lil sis from 1st ch to 1k chapter to get promise from MC. And waiting for like 5 years before she got promise from him.... I can accept that girl is in love with MC truly in love but mc's just running away like a coward instead of giving a clear answer.
  • Ending -
    To be honest, last 100 chapters were literally, I don't know what to say, really bad? Last fight with last boss that is Spiritual God was on 1200th chapter that is last chapter. It ended within half chapter with MC making a lucky break through. I don't even know how and why but it ended it was really disappointing ending. It's like doing anything and everything MC did till now was a waste. MC just realised that he was a creator and realised his powers just that in last chapter he realised just that and killed last boss. If he realized this in first chapter he could have ended then and there... It was really disappointing.
  • Romance -
    Athena he calls her his first love and he loves her the most yes I can accept it but after like 300 chapters her appearances and screen times are really less she disappears for like 100 chapter and talks like 1 chapter and disappears again. Most Female harem members suffer through same problem in later half of series. Interactions between them just keep getting fewer and fewer. One of his wife came in second half, Tiffany, her total screentime, might not even be more than 2 whole chapters, I mean the amount she talked can be covered within 6k words! So freaking less. Is this even a romance?

Overall -


This is a good novel in the first big half but second big half is totally meaningless and no fun to read at all. It's mostly about him getting harem and plot armor. It gets boring. Just read first arc is fun and quite good but whole series is definitely not worth it.

Highly recommended too since I also read it all in Vietnamese and it is one of the best web Chinese novel I have ever read and the first one that I re-read more than 3 time. 3 thing I like about this:

-The heroins are while not 100% individualistic, all have their own unique trait that make them differ from each other. They also only fall after the MC go through great length to open their heart and resolve their problem, not just fall for him after he shows off his... more>> strength and resourcefulness.

-The MC accepts the dark part of both humanity and himself, smart but not omnipotent (in the sense that there is other people out there that can outsmart him, not that the world is all stupid except himself), know when to fight and is decisive but also know when to hold back and forgive.

-The world isn't all just good or evil, most of them is just matcher (do something for them and they will return the favor, harm them and they will give you hell). There is no racist (all race is equal as long as they prove their worth), no sexist (woman can be even smarter and stronger than men), no real world hatred mixed in (Other country is x**, YYY). Even some antagonists are people worthy of respect if you read the whole story.

To skyleven7 (sorry I tried searching for a discussion page but didn't find one so I will post it here. I post it because I really consider your opinion and the novel is one of the few chinese web novel I like, not that I hate you) :

-Harem: He loves Athena the most because she loved him while he was still weak and once sacrificed her life for him (other loves him after he saved them which is great but I think love is more like both side receive something from each other, not one side give and other side take). She is also the one with highest wife power IMO. She is seen weak later on but it is because of her race and age so you really can't expect her to grow at the same pace as our MC. Just think of it like cheap weapon that helps you early game, it may become weak later but without it, you will be dead early game so you can't call it useless. She helps him in his early stage which is more than enough. It is also impossible to make true love in harem story since true love = longing for 1 person only.

-MC: He is opportunistic but it is simply because if he isn't, he should be dead. And he is only an otaku that maybe a little smarter and more independent than normal people, not some absolute genius that can predict the future. Asking him to create the flow is just setting the bar too high. Being able to catch the opportunity is already good enough since most people can't even do so.

-System: Yeah, it is but that is pretty normal since the setting in the beginning is just too hard (drop to demon world without family or friend). The good thing is that you will see that in later chapter that while MC is strong, he is only able to defeat the true boss by combing his and other people strength, not 1 man army.

-His power level is different than other since other is more game like: increase level -> new title-> new power. While he is more like state changing like Xinxia: Body-> mind-> understanding one self -> Understand the world ->Control the world.....

I don't deny what you say since different people different mind. I only want to give my opinion which may clear some of your doubt.

This is one of those stories that is a precious gem, that surprises you with an very interesting world and story. There are so obvious troupes, but they only help create an interesting character base of interactions. Would recommend. (Based on raw).

Hoping for a good English TL.

I had high hopes for this novel.

At the start of this novel, there were things which were amazing. As the MC was weak he used his brain and wits to overcome his foes. He scheme against them and then make them fight each other.

The MC got a system which is good, if not the best. It is your usual training grounds and exchange center where he can exchange potions.

The romance and the side character development is good and we get to see him spending time with his harem members, some... more>> sweet moments where you will go like awww..

But that is all.

Now lets come to things that are wrong in this novel.

With a scheming MC you would think that he may outsmart his enemies, but every time he is in grave danger, he is saved by the fuking plot armor. EVERY SINGLE DAMN TIME.

He picks fight against opponents that are way higher in cultivation than him for no reason at all.
Instead of cultivating quietly and becoming strong, he goes out and tries to fight people 2-3 realm higher than him. And just when he is about to die, BAM someone comes and save him.

When I read a system novel, I want the MC to become OP as fuk. If he is still stuck in lower realm even after op system and someone needs to save his ass every time, then it becomes a generic novel. I might as well read other novels instead of a system novel if I want to see the MC stuck in the same realm for too long.

If you read system novels, you will know that the MC there becomes OP pretty soon, like strongest system.

But in this novel, MC is always an underdog, surviving on the mercy of his enemies. You never feels like he is someone strong enough to control his own destiny.

This leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Although I like harem, I only like when its done properly. Where every character has its own personality and isn't forgotten after banging once.

Even though I loved this novel at start, it soon became apparent that the novel wont be any good., <<less

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Best LN I've read so far with perfect amounts of action, romance & comedy. The story takes you for a ride and I read it like I was addicted on LNMTL. The ending was satisfying and I would definitely recommend jt!
Spoiler

The Harem did not disappoint! I feel as of Harems are controversial but I like it because it is a fantasy. Every girl is treated right, and Chen rui doesn’t leave anyone behind. When Blanche died I was a little upset, but she revives in Star Tenple!!

Good read

System

A galactic/stellar type of system with 7 levels.

... more>> Influence building

First half of novel is basically influence building in demon world. (I.e he helps princess Sia to become empress, helps 3 empires in forming alliance and stuff)

Use of knowledge from past world

Its a little like miracle throne.

Later he creates game machine to gather faith.

Harem

decent harem but many good candidates were not acknowledged as harem member (that was a let down)

Characters

Great characterisation for some characters Characters with own opinions and objectives (I liked Catherine)

First half of novel was enjoyable but second half (human world) was little boring and ending seemed rushed.

But overall it was nice. <<less

This was actually a good read.. Although I think many will complain about the MC but personally I like the MC since although he's somewhat of a hypocrite at times it also shows the he is still human & not some super perfect MC that can accept all & do all.

Regarding the harem & romance, there are pros & cons well if you've read a lot of CN novels it's the usual problems like the early harem members can't level up as fast as MC so there they usually get... more>> left behind, well at least the MC is loyal (?) enough to come back to main heroine every time he finishes his work.

The story really won't bore you until around 1000+ chapters as around nearing the end it felt kind of rushed or forced maybe the transition was just not good, although it went downhill in my opinion it's just 4.5 going down to 3.5 not much, I don't remember what chapter it started but it was when
Spoiler

gate between human world & demon world opened

[collapse]
after that the pacing was destroyed.

As for the luck of MC, well his cheat is a system, do you even need an explanation for him being OP? Well its not like it was always smooth sailing for MC even with his system with the virus 'Asura' coming into his system, limit on usage on most of his skills (only until Devil Emperor?), always having task that have a time limit, etc.

Of course I won't deny some bad parts as well like forgotten plot, less screen time for early characters, rushed ending, MC's super luck (well is there any CN reincarnated novels where MC doesn't have god-blessed luck?).

Well overall this is still a good read, at least enough to not quit halfway through the story. <<less
