Era of Disaster


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

New Zealand underwent sudden changes and all humans and animals began to feel unimaginable hunger. At the same time, they begin their transformation into monsters as they feed voraciously.

The chef Bai Yi with his daughter struggles for survival every step of the way, only to find that the entire New Zealand has transformed into a devil island. This, was only the start of the change to the entire world.

Starting from powerful physical strength to mystical skills and then to magnificent battle techniques, will they be able to find a long peaceful future? From the evolution that humanity themselves triggered, the fate of the entire world is completely changed.

Translator Synopsis:

This story is about an outbreak of something called ‘activated cells’ that turns everybody in New Zealand (the setting of the story, but I’m sure the outbreak will expand into the whole world sooner or later) into monsters, and it details the journey of Bai Yi and his companions along with his daughter trying to survive and rebuild civilisation in the changed world. The author tries to be very realistic, so the evolution into monsters follow a very logical and rational path and the system for evolution is well-developed. Bai Yi is a kind person, and there’s no cheats or mysterious artifacts to make him overpowered so he has to struggle all the way.

So the unique thing about this novel is that the author tries to incorporate realism into the story, meaning that the MC doesn't get lucky all the thing and have all the good things fall on him, the antagonist is actually somewhat capable and smart, and people important to the MC do die from time to time (I mean in an actual apocalypse, what reason is there for all of MC's friends to survive when everybody else is dying?).

Personally, I really enjoy this novel after getting sick of reading all... more>> the other cliche novels where it just becomes so predictable (MC is going to win every fight, MC is going to get all the good stuff, everybody is going to worship MC, everything goes the MC's way), and this novel is really far from that.

Another good thing about this novel is that the author develops the system of evolution really well, the characters in the story gets stronger and levels up in a logical and plausible way (at least to a layman in biology, but I mean I wouldn't want to read a science textbook anyway), so it's not just 'I'm stronger because I'm a seven star sword saint and you are a six star sword saint'.

Oops I think my hidden angst towards cliche novels are showing in this review but I do find this style of novel good and refreshing, do give it a try if you like the kind of story I described! <<less

Only thing I can say is the author is an idiot. New Zealand is not in the center of the Pacific it is located in the Southern Pacific Ocean near Australia. There is several islands located to the center of the Pacific however that would have worked just as well for the story that I imagine the the Author thought was New Zealand.

It is pretty easy to understand why the rating for this novel is dropping just reading the first few chapters of obvious lack of knowledge on the authors... more>> part. Felt like nails scratching a chalkboard every time I would hit a part that is obviously not right. All that is missing is the author saying the world is flat and that it is set on the back of elephants riding on a giant turtle.

Also how many noticed the giant snake on the cover is the same snake on the cover of The Desolate Era even thought they are different publishers? <<less

This is basically an 'After The Apocalypse' novel, only thing is that the Apocalypse is limited to New Zealand. The writing could be better, but at least it is not as bad as junk like ATG/ Emperor's Domination etc. If you like a novel where the MC isn't over powered and has to struggle a bit to survive, then you can try reading this.

The author tries hard to be realistic, but not too hard, since it is obvious that the author never bothered reading any book on biology.

Strong Points:

  • Author tries to write a "mature" novel, with a wise enlightened protagonist, and a clever antagonist.
  • There are no Spoiled Young masters or idiotic enemies with a deathwish, only people trying to survive.
  • Author is not afraid to kill off characters.

Weak Points:

  • Author explains stuff a lot. He seems to not realise that best authors follow the maxim: "Show, don't tell." Instead, he tells a lot.
  • Protagonist is way too wise and open minded.
  • The antagonist is way too clever and overly lucky.
  • The novel still has the shortcoming of all chinese novels: Everything and everyone bends over backwards to give these two characters exactly what they want.
  • Author is trying to shoehorn all kind of myths into a story where they don't belong. Example: first, the souls, then ghosts, then the underworld.

I rate this novel 3/5, but I have given it 5 stars just to offset some of the harebrained 1 star reviews.

Recommendation: Read Reincarnator for a better apocalypse novel instead. Or you can read Ze Tian Ji, Deathsutra, AWE, Chronicles of Primoridal wars instead. <<less

I don't remember if the author doesn't know geography like the previous reviewer said, but I do think more scientific research could have helped. Like the fact that mutated birds or ocean creatures would probably affect the rest of the world even if you isolated New Zealand.

Regardless, I enjoy the MC, his daughter, and Sharpei. I'm tentatively optimistic about the story line so far. I guess right now I'm curious about who the villains are exactly and what evolutions the characters will go through. I'll probably make a more detailed... more>> review when more chapters are out.

Translation is stable so far, but there are only 38 chapters. The quality seems fine to me. <<less

Don't bother reading this. it's good and interesting at the start but everyone except the MC and his daughter will slowly get killed off by the author.

The antagonist doesn't die and the entire story is about them fighting, getting their friends killed, then stop and run away. 30 chapters of them talking a hike up a mountain, meet again, fight again, get more friends killed. rinse and repeat + powerups.

Everyone also talks about how 'famous' they are, but people still like the antagonist more becus? uhh... they want to forgive... more>> him? in a world where people eat people and so on... yea okay. <<less

Intresting premise, some cool characters, the problem is the author kills of the characters that are interesting, but somehow lets some the dumb people and current asshole live? At a certain point you're just creating tragedy for the sake of conflict, but with zero thought process for the plot, it's literally an endless loop of the same stupid sh*t over and over again.
