When I was 15-years-old, during the year that I graduated from middle school, my father told me this.

“The Devil’s blood runs in our family.”

That was the truth. Sadly my father was the owner of a takeaway chicken shop with the talent of turning his eyes blue, and I was the son of the takeaway shop who just happened to be slightly stronger than others.

But five years later.

They came for me.

Absolutely terrible translation. Don't bother reading it unless English is NOT your first language.

@UnrivaledFury - We're not here to criticize English. We're here to criticize what appears to be a sad excuse for the English language. Something being free doesn't mean it's fine if it's crap. If I make some dinner for you, then take a dump on, but tell you it's free, would you be happy? No. Especially if the meal I made was absolutely incredible before ruining it.

Same goes for novels. The fact that this was an interesting... more>> story makes it even worse, as now we're stuck with a pretty much broken version of it. I would rather the translator didn't bother translating at all, and waited until someone else came along to do it who had skills. You seem to be ignoring the fact that such a terrible translation is also like a slap in the face to the original author who worked so hard on the novel. I know I'd be irked if I wrote a good novel, then found out some terrible translation was carelessly being made in some other country, ruining all my hard work.

Always irks me when people claim that since something is free, we have no right to criticize it. Couldn't be further from the truth. <<less

The overall story is great but I'm ticked off with the grammar. The translator really need to know the difference between they, them, their, and you, he, she, it. Because when describing one person the translator most of the time use they or their. This really broke the immersion of the story.

Example from chapter 42

... more>>

The Clay Golem looked like they threw their body as they attacked Foras.

The Treant was waiting for the right moment and when the cold and fire were mixed into the air, they extended their vine out.

Skull’s body flew towards the wall as if they were hit by a car.

The translator describe the clay golem, treant, and skull using using they when describing 1 character.

Gentlemen, I have read some reviews about the issue with grammatical errors.

It's true that around chapter 60, previous translators has used "them" instead of he/she. Seems like English professors were ticked off by reading this.

But this is free translation, there will be mistakes here and there. Question yourselves are you here to criticize English or Read this amazing story?

... more>> Current translator is enthusiastically trying to get new chapters out. Show some love.

Now regarding the story, when compared to other dungeon building novels, this one makes a better sense. Although system helps with evolution, purchasing and building, story is not overly reliant on the system. NTR haters rejoice! Seems that author is brought up in a good family. Usually, it is not surprising for Demon novels to have this, but so far I have not seen any NTR elements/foreshadowing. Nor are there any "R"pe. Demons have proper wives.

Regarding the characters, I find the desposition of MCs spirits to be quite amusing. They get emotional even for a small thing.

About our MC, although he is not initially strong, he will grow in power eventually. He plans his battles and dungeon structures wisely and trusts his comrades. Instead of greedily leveling himself up, he gives a chance for his spirits to level up. There is nothing to hate about him.

Although there is little information about the surroundings and elements in the world, more information may be revealed in upcoming chapters when MC gets to interact with outsiders who have information.

This is a good novel just give it a try. <<less

Really great story and no complaints about the translation. The action scenes seem somewhat stilted but not sure if that's the nature of the original or the translator, but still a great story with interesting characters. Unfortunately, it looks like Qidian is pulling some BS and going to take down everything so this is just the beginning of a story that we will never get to appreciate fully now. Original review:

I'd just like to comment in response to all the complaints that "they" and "their" are the 100% correct pronouns... more>> to use for an individual with a non specified gender. I think the people complaining about the grammar may want to check their grammar rules before complaining. I personally always wondered why so many translators would use he/she or have a comment about how they dont know the gender so they're using he for this mysterious character now and may come back to change it later when they always could have been using they or their, but now I realize that everyone is probably as ignorant of this as the people commenting. Granted, when you know the gender, it makes sense to use English style gendered pronouns, but both Japanese and Korean rely on context to make gender clear so a more literal translation would avoid gendered pronouns. Finally, if you use they and their you would probably avoid upsetting individuals that do not identify with the s*x they have been assigned at birth. Oh, one last language fact: you was originally considered plural and thou was singular, but as thou stopped being used more and more, people felt that you was not specific enough to denote a group of people, giving rise to things like "you all", "you ones", and their contractions "y'all" and "yins/youns". The correct plural form of you is you; similarly, their is always an appropriate choice of pronoun regardless of number or gender. <<less

It is written by a korean. It is dungeon building novel but better than the other japanese versions.

Not everything are made of golems.

It is a bit fast paced, lacking some world explanation, lacking more details to picture how and what kind of dungeon we are looking at. All we get is "it is in the south, and its big"

It has an end, a closure, no hiatus left and right.

Translation: Grammar error when it comes to singular and plurals (a lot). Otherwise its ok.

This is still a bit early to comment, but I guess I can make a review with what's available currently.

For the moment I gave it 4 stars, but it's probably gonna change for the better in the future since I have high hopes for this. This novel will probably become similar to other great korean novels such as Dimensional Sovereign, Dungeon Hunter, Aquiring Talent in a Dungeon, Book Eating Magician, Tutorial is Too Hard and so on.

The story, starts by throwing you directly into the action from the first 2... more>> chapters. The MC is a descendant of one of the 7 Deadly Sins (7 great demon families). But he is a human in the human world, anyway to make long story short, he is accosted by 2 demons and he is told that he was the descendant of one of the 7 Deadly Sins, the line of Mammon. The head of the Mammon lineage committed suicide for some reason (seems s*upid for me, it was because they were left out of a banquet, and were not invited). And all the subjects except for the 2 that are in front of him deserted/left. So now he is invited to become the head of the dungeon otherwise the 2 demons (Catalina - succubus/fighter and Eligor - butler) will die. He accepts, only to find out his inheritance is a run-down dungeon, where he needs to sleep in the same room, and almost gets squashed day 1 from a relatively normal monster (an ogre). He awakens and gets a special power/trait, which is Demon of Evolution. Up until recently his power was shown to let him evolve his subjects and probably himself as well. But there is a lot of foreshadowing so I believe it's much more than just this. He also gets another special power/skill called one of the 7 deadly sins...

My suggestion would be to read the first 10-something chapters, since chapters are very short to give yourself an estimate on how the story is. The first 2-3 chapters, were kind of boring honestly and didn't excite me at all into wanting to read more of it. But now last few chapters it has been picking up, so now I'm expecting more from it.

Edit: Currently on chapter 16, so far the story has remained somewhat bland, nothing super, it's been going the same as the first few chapters. It's still good as a pass-time. But it's not at the same level as the other great korean novels such as BEM, DS, DH, TTH. <<less

It's just a transported MC and a dungeon defense world. Concept seems interesting and the author is adding enough plot and world building to keep things interesting. The story is different from the norm which helps a lot however it does have a lot of random distractions that I personally dislike. Overall, this story should be popular with most people and will probably be enjoyed for quite some chapters in the future. Summary: ... more>>

Kid knows he is different, devils/demons come to ask him for help when their boss commits suicide due to depression. Kid agrees and ends up being the boss of a ruined maze/dungeon that he has to protect with no resources. The main character also gets some kind of skill to go along with the dungeon but we don't know anything about what it does yet. Most basic trap/monster dungeon theories apply.


Tried it, going to drop it personally. Nothing against the story or the overall skill there-in, it just bugs me a little when I read it. <<less

Due to an error I gave the novel 5 stars. My current rating is 4.

The novel in itself is good enough to recommend. It is nice and cute. The grammar is good enough for what it is worth (you get what you pay) and the development is interesting. The dungeon building is passable at worst and, for my taste, it needs a bit more development.

I have two major problems with the novel. One is that, even though the novel is tagged as clever protagonists, the protagonist is at best... more>> normal. To give you an example.


Around chapter 40 the dungeon can manage/install basic training grounds. Undead and golemns don't get tired and the only upkeep is mana. He has the power of evolution He can buy cheap spirits and grow them. By chapter 7X he stated that de core have problems with mana because there are a lot of rooms, with a good of them being empty rooms and almost conquer the first floor. And he has tons of corpses that he forgot?

Anyone with a good head can put two and two together and think to reduce the rooms to the minimum. Increase the fighting forces in quantity and, with the training grounds and power of evolution, quality Form a hunting team and feed the dungeon core to increase its mana, and increase slowly but steadily the numbers of rooms. And with enough fighting forces strom other dungeons.

And, well, he is greed The author has stated that the demon world is ruled by survival of the fit and the jungle law. There are no nice predators.


My second problem is that the author does not know how to develop characters, particularly other than the main one, and he keeps introducing more characters to the main team. He is more like, ups, I forgot that I have this character so here is a mention of him but nothing really happens. I think that the author has too much of on his plate with plot, Dungeon development and character growth that he stumble in one category. At least the plot and dungeon development is good enough

Overall the novel is good and if you like a bit more of plot and dungeon development rather than a strong sense of characters growth, this novel is for you. Just don't expect a really clever protagonist. <<less

An interesting story with good combat and fun characters. Lots of focus on dungeon-building and guiding character stat growth but never so much that it becomes excessive. The plot is also engaging, with clear goals and to reach and looming threats on the horizon. Unfortunately, this is another story with pacing that is only good when binge-reading. But when you are binge-reading, this an exciting story about a young guy rising to power in the demon world while discovering powerful legacies left behind by his ancestor.

The grammar of the translations... more>> is a little annoying. The translator clearly has trouble with pronouns. Good quality in other respects though. <<less

The story is interesting and it has some real potential but at this point it's still in it's infancy, once this gains 1 or 2 hundred more chapters it may be something great. However as this is the kind of series that slowly ramps up, at the moment there isn't a whole lot to differentiate it from it's competition.

in closing, good but nothing special so far.

hmmm so far I didn't find any things worth mentioning 'bout the novel yet, and also the novel seems to be like most of the usual dungeon type build JP novels but without the dense, lazy, want to introduce earth foods trope MC.

Well to sum it up and base from the title we could see that this novel's all about dungeon building, management etc. So for people who like this type of novels might enjoy reading this one too.

I'm liking it so far. A dungeon management story very typical from a Japanese novel. However, this is written by a Korean writer and as far as I can observe, it's righting everything that the typical Japanese dungeon management novel is doing wrong.

So far Dungeon Maker is shaping up to be a fairly generic dungeon management story, although that may be due to the limited number of chapter. The story is relatively well written and enjoyable. The chapters are short but this also makes it feel like things progress rapidly. Overall I would say it is worth watching but there isn't a lot there yet.
