If you just want to read a novel about an OP MC where everything goes his way and misunderstanding always happen to work in his favor, go ahead. It's a good enough novel to pass the time with. But it's not much beyond that.

All the side characters end up in awe or worship of the MC unrealistically fast when MC doesn't do much beyond acting in common sense and being strong, it's just that most other people in the MC's position act s*upid or arrogant so he ends up looking... more>> good in comparison.

One of the main things that bothers me is that the main motivation the MC has is hunting strong monsters that drop red mana stones, which he can eat to gain unique abilities. The problem being that he could easily do that on his own with his camouflage ability by sneaking into dungeons without anyone detecting him, yet he follows the human rules and brings mercenaries around with him despite not needing any help in combat. Then he ends up gaining territory and knights and becoming a lord, but there's no obvious benefit to him doing so when it comes to his initial objective. He's more than powerful enough to get everything he needs with his own abilities.

Also, so far he's only used his 'vassal' ability on one person despite there being obvious advantages to using it on more of his subordinates. It gives them a huge power boost and prevents them from betraying him, with no obvious downsides. If he used it on his other subordinates it seems obvious they would be capable of carrying out more tasks on their own and also face less unexpected danger, yet the thought hasn't even crossed his mind once so far. And the first guy he made a vassal was only because he would have died otherwise.

Last point which lowered my opinion is his complete lack of interest in women. The dude is described as being inhumanly handsome but what's the point if those good looks are never put to use? This point is obviously personal bias but I stand by it.

Overall it's a good enough time killer, but it has a lot of wasted potential in my opinion. 3/5 <<less

This is a well translated, decently written story (in terms of syntax and grammar). However, it boggles my mind why the protag is a vampire.

The story opens at the climax of an exciting, authentic vampire story. The agents of the church have captured the protag after a long pursuit through the countryside. The templar then executes the vampire protag.

The protagonist regresses to a period of time before he was dis covered. From this point forward, it ceases to be a legitimate vampire tale. He can walk in the sun, has... more>> no burning desire to feast on human blood, etc. Etc. The major drawbacks, which balance out the fact that vampires are super predators, do not exist here.

The fact that he even has ability steal in certain situations, wrecks the vulnerabilities vampires are supposed to have. Essentially Eugene is the classic op character masquerading as a vampire.

What also frustrated me was that no one (aside from a sympathetic wizard) could figure out he was a vampire post-regression!!! It was established that vampires are a known adversary of mortals, and that the templars hunt them. Eugene is clearly firmly within the human domain, so why is it that no one, even Templars who later travel into a dungeon with him, can identify him as a vampire! His eyes are red, his skin is pale, and before he figured out he didn't need to hide from the sun, he suspiciously avoided direct sunlight. Combined with his feats of supernatural strength I find it comical not a single person suspected him of being a vampire (even Templars).

Furthermore, you would think a person who was hunted and killed by the Church pre-regression would keep a low profile. Nope, not this guy. He quickly abandons the notion of concealing himself and acts like a knight and pursues political power in the human domain. I dont care how weak the Church's influence is, humans society would tear him apart if the discovered what he was, yet he wants to integrate into their power structures in such a high profile way. However you slice this, the author clearly has no intention of writing a vampire story. The author wanted to write another op wish fulfillment story in a medieval fantasy setting, but dressed it up as a vampire story to bring some novelty. <<less

I'm focused on the chapters themselves because that's what makes this novel for me, along with the novelty of having a vampire MC and good writing.

  • Chapter length is lengthier in comparison to Regressed Demon Lord is Kind, SLR, OG. In other words, more content is covered within a chapter.
  • The chapters are better at plot progression than the other 3 novels in that the progress towards conflicts, whether macro or micro in scale, is always significant. This means if anything is meant to further the story, it's not a half measure but a full measure.
  • Piggybacking off the 2nd bullet, I'm never left feeling that the chapter ended on a cliffhanger or frustrated that a plot device was introduced with no follow-up on it.
  • (Sub bullet) i.e., Eugene (MC) gets a new power, becomes more complete as a vampire, etc. Within the chapter, but rather being solely introduced, it's expanded on in the same chapter. This leaves me not feeling teased or frustrated. So instead of being enticed with a carrot on a stick at the end of the chapter, I'm intrigued by the novelty of a Vampire MC and the quality plot progression.

The writing is quite simple and to the point, some words are a bit repetitive, some points are inconsistent, like, MC's aristocratic bearing when he never had an education... maybe its a vampire thing that runs in the blood to hunt prey? the story is interesting though, and so far leaves me wanting to know what Eugene will do next.

Edited:

I cant put it down, it looks like the author improved a lot when compared to Duke Pendragon! The start as I said its a bit rocky in writing but, once... more>> it picks up its hard to stop. <<less

Perfect example of strong start/first half and then collapse on the 2nd half. The 2nd half became a joke. Sharing the same worldview as the author's previous novels, it seems that he's having a hard time finishing a series in a good way. The side stories was made to be understood by reading the previous work, duke pendragonn ending in a similar shi**y manner. I'd consider it a fun read for the first half but went downhill. Added some plots and developments and sometimes ridiculous action the total score will... more>> be 3 stars. <<less

I don't know why but there is a shortage of novels about vampires. (Maybe I just can't find any) I like story. I like characters. I recomand it. Main character is really good at deceiving people. He is slowly building up his power in human world. I'm waiting for world of vampires to be more developed. (My rating is that high because I rarely see any good story about vampirest btw hate Twilight. Sorry)

90% of the story is about the MC acting like a knight instead of a vampire: the novel title is a joke. Worse, schemes and strategies between nobles and knights are boring, predictable, and side characters completely uninteresting. If the world building is nice and drives the reading for the first 10 chapters, the plot is very slow paced. Furthermore, the MC becomes OP too fast, so much that he already can ... more>>
Spoiler

survive and behave normally in daylight after 20 chapters with a powerfull armor and camouflage skills. He could even use this camouflage gift to infiltrate dungeons and cities, and prey on powerfull victims, monsters or humans, but no, MC still acts like a boring knight.
