Dominion’s End

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The red meteor shower rained across the sky, a black fog engulfed the world.

After waking from a night of torture and agony,

Humans discovered they no longer dominated the world.

—The hunters have become the hunted.

After the apocalypse, I struggled for survival for ten bitter years, but ultimately couldn’t escape death.

But when I opened my eyes again, I had transformed from an ordinary 35-year old woman into a beautiful young man of 18.

A different gender, a world that is both familiar yet not, an apocalypse that has vanished without a trace, and an unexpected return of 17 years of youth.

Looking around, I discovered I had a powerful, protective big brother and a gentle, charming little sister.

Just as things couldn’t possibly look any brighter—

The end of the world came crashing down again.

And this time around, is it fight? Or flight?

The male character outside is a cute little wonder. The female inside is sodden trash. She contributes for nothing other messing up her alter ego's (current body's) mind and potential. Always lost in the reminiscences of what she herself admits was a worthless life where she did nothing but disappointing herself. I'm not saying the past life story isn't worth telling. But in the context of our young and cute boy of a protagonist with a hot and reliable dage and a soft and adorable meme, the past is just... more>> dead weight. The author tries many times, but as far as I can tell, she is unable to meld both personalities into a single one. The current incarnation has much too life to it to really bother with the old one, so the past is just an irritating interlude that keeps popping up between all kinds of scenes and makes you just skim over to get back to the action.

So if you forget about the thousand and one times, the main character whines about the sleazy bodyfriend in the past life (who is admittedly one helluva dirtbag), everything else about the story is actually quite gripping and sweet. Considering it's a novel woven over a zombie apocalypse type of background, the fact that there is still so much warmth between characters really makes it worth a read.

Apart from the aforementioned, there's also another thing I like about the novel when it comes to the transmigration. The author actually tries to integrate the two characters into one, which is not something you easily see in this genre. Usually, the MC straighforwardly discards the current "body"s ego and thoughts, basically turning into a squatter in someone else's life. Even if they try to give back, it is only the outward actions of taking revenge or improving the family situation, etc. That we see. No transmigration MC actually genuinely tries to respond to the emotions of other's in the "body"s life that he or she has taken over. Same is not the case with Guan Wenjin.
Spoiler

She actually confronts her situation head on and even discusses it with others so that she can actually be Jiang Shiyu.

[collapse]

Although the author doesn't actually succeed in her attempts to integrate the two polar opposites' personalities (just going by the fact that the past self is a girl), the attempt is indeed worth noticing. This is one of the best parts of Yu Wo's novels. You get to experience the emotions of people in actually impossible situations.

Like, who hasn't read a cyborg novel before? But if you want to actually experience a cyborg's emotion's, you better read Yu Wo. Same is the case with the twelve knights in the Legend of Sun Knight as well. We've all read stories with twelve holy knights. But if you want the heartwarming version, you better read Yu Wo. Ha ha. She's not exactly all that brilliant in story telling, but her grasp on emotional synergy between characters in these fantasy, mystical and otherwise impossible to imagine scenarios makes you want to cheer for her even if she's bugging the hell out of you with overly lengthy and oftentimes misleading internal monologues of characters.

Although I don't have much hope for it, I'll keep watching this space for future chapters of Dominion's end. <<less

As expected of one of Yu Wo's works.

The pacing is excellent, and the plot as well as the characters can't be compared to other post-apocalyptic novels. Dominion's End isn't only a story to satisfy one's craving for gore and blood, but also one's funny bone. I can't help but praise the author for her amazing writing, as well as the translators' smooth translations.

To sum up this novel;
1. The MC used to be a woman who survived in the post-apocalyptic world for 10 years but died and awoken... more>> inside a body of a beautiful teenage boy 10 years in the past, pre-apocalypse.
2. The MC uses her/his knowledge of her/his past-future to improve the chances of her/his survival, as well as her/his family's survival.
3. The MC struggles with her/his sexuality - especially since she/he is attracted to her/his brother's body, and her/his sister as a person.
4. The MC's inner monologue is to die for.
5. Time-travel is way too complicated when you mix it with zombies (or in this case, aberrant)
******6. This is a MUST read for Apocalyptic-world novel readers. Can't call yourself a zombie reader fan if you don't know this! No joke! ******

The only downside is that the gap between translations is quite... large. But, oh well. Translators have their own lives to live too, right? <<less

I love this story. Sometimes it's so random that I have no idea where the plot is going to go next but you've gotta stay for the action, the humor and the fluff (and boy is it fluffy). If I were you I'd hold off on the shipping for awhile cuz it doesn't seem that important. Somehow the girls in this novel aren't irritating (and sometimes that all that I can ask for) and in fact I actually like them. And the brother acts like a d**k for awhile but... more>> it gets better (you'll know what I mean when you get there. I'm only mentioning it because it was really irritating for a while).

Quick warning while the translator does a stellar job the updates are really slow. This isn't a criticism just a fact and something you should know before reading. But it's a great read. Completely worth it. <<less

An office lady that lived in post-apocalypse world for 10 years ended up in the body of a handsome man in a parallel world days before apocalypse happened. It is an interesting premise and good balance of action and humor. I'm not big on zombies/apocalypse but I like action/reincarnation/transmigration and this is a well written story.

Unlike some novel, it didn't just use reincarnation/transmigration as a starting point and completely ignores it after 3 chapters. While it does reference future events, the original/before MC was an ordinary women that only hides... more>> so she had limited knowledge and the plot doesn't become overly reliant on it or tries to follow it exactly (since she's in a different body/situation/location). Because you are looking through MC's point of view, the information is limited and there's no giant paragraphs of explanation of the world/leveling that makes your eyes glaze over.

The character interactions also feels realistic. The MC actually tells his brother/sister that he might be a different soul, and the brother/sister were reasonable/intelligent about it. The MC is not a super genius at age of only 15 (ok, maybe the original owner of the MC's body would've been if he didn't die, lol) or some wimpy/hapless/perverted bloke. The MC is awesome, within reason, and when he does make mistakes people scold him, help him explain and forgive him. They sit down to talk, they doubt and trust, and they help out each other, just like a real family. There's no generic/over the top misunderstandings/hating/loving incidents that drags on forever.

That's all I can tell so far. I look forward to reading more and hope it won't degenerate into generic brainless OP-action only stuff in the later volumes. <<less

Dominion's End is a great novel, blending comedy, drama, and easy to understand fights all into one. The main character, at least in my eyes, is reasonable and above all a likable one. If you're looking for a comedic and exciting piece I highly recommend you to read this. The only problem I have with the novel would be the slow updates. That aside, the novel is, in my opinion, amazing. I hope that the novel will continue to improve as it goes on.

Like previous posts stated: Don't let the apocalypse theme fool you, it's one of the best light novels I read in awhile... main reason is because a girl wakes up into a super hot boy body... who happens to have a super hot overprotective bro and cute little sister 👌👌👌

I really love this novel! I love the apocalypse theme, and it’s very rare that I come across a girl turning into a guy plot. It’s quit refreshing! I wish the updates were more frequent though

I really love this CN! Mostly because I'm attracted to gender benders, and only rarely do I come across a woman becoming a man and is actually very adept too! I'm just wishing that there would be frequent chapters : (

Love It

The theme of reincarnation with an overpowered main character is popular right now, but unlike the others I can relate to this story more because the setting is closer to this world and time period, just added with some supernatural elements.

Favorite: It makes me laugh so much.

Absolutely my favorite zombie gender gender!

All issues of general and sexuality that come with being transmigrated into a different body are handled well, as in actually addressed instead of being glossed over for fetish purposes.

The plot and character development is handled fantastically as well, with compelling world building and characters!

This novel really sapped the soul out of me. It somehow mixed everything I could ask of at this moment where I have read a lot of xianxia/wuxia novels. It has heartbreaking moments yet it never loses the fantastical feel. It strips bare the dark side of humanity but still manage to show its light. It is amazing. It is somewhat illogical but very real, like something very human. It never gives us the god-like existence with no regards to feelings but a character who really is someone down to... more>> the bones, a human (Neglecting the powers of course). Please translate faster, is all what I really want to say not demanding of course but pleading. So to everyone who is reading this support the translator and the writer if you read the story, and if not better read the story then support them. Thanks for reading this long comment of mine! <<less

Great novel! At the beginning, I was quite skeptical of the "zombies and end of the world" scenario, but once I started reading, I just couldn't stop.

I particularly like the MC. Even if she (he?) lived the apocalypse once again and tries their best to be one step foward, she/he is not perfect, and the experience they have from the previous world is limited. Also, the MC is not ruthless, but still had seen quite some shit, so she/he won't hesitate to do some moraly dobious stuff if necessary. She/he... more>> also ignores a lot of things from the previous world and is constantly aware of it.

About the plot, it's kind of hard to describe. It starts as simple as a survival novel, but there was obviously a lot going on in the previous world that the MC had no idea.

As for the translation, even if it may be a bit slow to update, it's very punctual and of good quality.

To end this comment, I just want to say I really like this novel and is definitely in my top 10.

Please, give it a try, I highly recommend it! <<less

Great Novel, Very interesting plot so many new concepts I haven't even considered writable in plots, only bad thing is the novel ended up in a slow translator's hand, I see NU has 5 volumes out but translators release 1-3 a month in some cases just one, might as well just add this to your plan to read list, don't get disappointed like I did and read this novel up-to-date in one night.

It’s a roller coaster. Very eventful, reading the low star reviews I noticed that people just needed to wait a little for things to pick up. There’s fluffy bits, there’s fantasy bits, there’s dystopian bits, walking dead bits. A good, unrealistic zombie series.

It seems less horrific than full metal alchemist, but I think it has the same mood.

A good story with with too much filler starting from the interaction of the MC with himself and with his sibling to sometime his interaction with his entourage but mainly with himself.

Still deserve a 4 given that its far better that the majority of Chinese novel out there.

Dominions end is probably one of the most entertaining story that I have read. I love the interactions between the siblings it offers a reprise from what you would normally expect in an apocalyptic situation.

If I had one complaint it would be the updates are slow. But that doesnt stop me from rereading the entire story everytime an update is released

This is a very entertaining novel! Much more so than most of the other post-apocalyptic novels I've read. The translation is very well edited and the humor comes across clearly. 5/5

This is by far the greatest novel I've read besides Genius Doctor: Black belly Miss and World Cultivation. I love the characters they are not unbearable or overbearing. The story is pretty refreshing. The dead are not the typical undead and the apocalypse is truly not as typical as the original the author bas such an entertaining mind to create a world many readers cant help but want to stay forever entrapped inside. It is unfortunate that it is updated very slowly.

My thoughts about this novel are a bit contradictory at the moment. On one point I trust Yu Wo. I believe that the one who gave birth to "The Legend of Sun Knight" won't write anything bad. On the other point I'm being constantly annoyed by homosexual jokes. I do understand that the MC is a beautiful guy (not handsome but beautiful!!!) and because of this he ends up in all sorts of troublesome situations cos there are no rules anymore, but it still bothers me a lot. But, again,... more>> I think this situation is more or less temporary (or I would like to believe so?). The story itself hasn't even started to develop as of yet. Almost in every chapter we are being introduced to more and more characters, that just disappear into thin air for now. Naturally they will all appear in the story again, but for that we will have to wait and see.

Overall I like the story, cos I believe it will eventually develop into something very interesting. As far as l know Yu Wo plans to wright 15+ volumes of DE making it into the longest Yu Wo series. It's too early to judge <<less

I have been a big fan of Yu Who's works since 1/2 Prince. When I found out she had another gender bender novel being translated I had to read it! It's pretty unique because it combines different light novel premises. I love her works. They make me laugh and they make me cry but best of all I am attached to the characters and plot. I love how she does another her characters in plot armor not nor does she make them mary/Gary sues.
