I feel like biggest reason this novels rating is below 4 is bevause of the original translation site or at least the link for the first 30-40ish chapters. This is because their are somewhat a lot of editing mistakes especially with repeated double chapters / paragraphs. This likely annoyed the majority of reviewers giving them a negativr bias and view of the book. Personally I like this book. It is a revenge story of somewhat who got a rebirth and is looking to kill the #1 hero of the world... more>> when rest of the players are viewed as villians. The Mesiah guild is the true villian however. The MC is an op necromancer who also has op luck. Reason I gave this a 4 was because the small events were all somewhat repetitive since everytime it happened a couple of paragraphs were used as filler as why he needs to get revenge etc. Characters also somewhat lack depth but at least has more than isekai/harem novels. It's a good read/timepasser but not the best book <<less

Best praise I can give is to call this a time-pass novel.

Nothing original but its entertaining enough.

Bit of a cross between 'Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint' and 'Solo Leveling'

Couple of the supporting characters are pretty fun (the cheapskate Oh Se-chan, and the super talkative Lee Jin-ah)

Translation quality is also good

Your typical k novel with new tiny bits here and there, which I don't mind. However there is one big issue I have, not with the novel but the translators of the site, some may disagree or blah blah at least they're translating it ect, but reading 1 chapter a week is not worth my time at all, and with how many k novels myoni has dropped recently that I've really liked I will have to pass on this. Spending hours reading a novel that you like and find out... more>> that it's been dropped due to not enough readers/little profit/or translator losing interest is not fun at all and a waste of time as you'll probably never find out what happens in the end.

In short, it'll take 4 years to finishing reading the novel at 1 chapter a week, with a fairly good chance of it getting dropped, is that worth your time? <<less

Mediocre. That's the only way I can describe this novel. It's just basically wish fulfillment. The MC never experiences any hardships or anything like that. From the very beginning to the end, it's just smooth sailing for the MC. Need a skill? MC gets it the next chapter. Need a weapon? Next chapter. Enemy? Enemy's gonna die or be defeated without any struggle.

That said, it's good for reading when you have nothing else to read. Just don't have any expectations for this novel because you'll be disappointed.

I was so excited to read this novel from the beginning, because the story is a bit similar to EER, SSN, etc. But one thing that made this novel different is that the MC isn't your typical betrayed hero but MC is a loyal subordinate to hero yet betrayed by the hero. I enjoyed this a lot, but ofc just like another KR novels this novel also get boring in the later chapter (i mean around 150+) the story become so boring as the plot armor really play a great... more>> role for MC. The 'luck' MC possessed is just too much.

everytime he needs a certain skill or item MC will get it in a few chapters


And for the last, this is a major spoiler that maybe will change your idea to read this novel.

The MC struggled so much to kill LSJ and ending the game, even though the MC managed to kill LSJ and PSH he still hasn't clear the game yet. The story ended 1 week before MC and all star player go to 9th floor dungeon (last dungeon)

Gave it a read and well, it's okey, my biggest issue is that it's about a necromancer who as many of these korean novels is more of a fighter with necro skills then an actual necromancer.

Small spoilers from the first few chapters about his choice of class and progress.

... more>>

The MC is from the beginning an Immortal Swordsman so not even the big bad Hero can defeat him without resorting to use a sword that lowers his powers by 90% so that a poison that killed everyone else can start to effect him. So when he regresses he decides to pick the necromancer class cause he can't defeat the Hero with his last class. But he still decides to invest all his stats into physical (it's never really explained outside that there are likely two stats magic and physical) because by investing everything into physical stat he will have a chance to fight vs the Hero cause the Hero has so high physical stats that he's a litteral tank. But he still goes with the necro class that has all it's skills based on and boosted by magic. Then he goes on to use the skills and realizes that his summons fighting experience and skills are based on his own fighting style so the weakness of the previous king of necromancer is now gone since he is a fighting expert, every single summon of his is a copy of himself.

He say's he'll revise his build because of this but, still continues to invest all his stats into the physical stat even though magic would make him able to summon more summons and make them stronger he still only trusts in himself. Then the author starts giving him a bunch of high end skills from the start that boosts his summons by a % so the higher their base stats the stronger they get.

To be honest the author seems to want to make a copy out of Solo Leveling but pretty much just makes the MC look s*upid because he focuses only on the physical stat while going with a magic class and over and over highlightning how good the magic stat would be for himself but instead goes with the physical stat which pretty much does nothing for him outside of making him physical strong. Sure being physical strong is good, but being able to summon 100 skeletons that are probably even stronger and has the same fighting skills as yourself is probably even better. But yeah pretty much author wants his MC to be a necromancer while still being a melee fighter and justifies it by having MC invest everything into physical stat cause all the skills, passives what not the other classes have don't matter at all cause the MC has the same physical stat as them and good gear.


The story overall is "okey" I would say it's pretty standard at this point, the pacing is kinda weird with plot jumping forward quite a bit at times, probably to just skip things the author thought would be boring to explain/go into.

Character development? There is not much as far as I've read it's all about the MC and his power creeping while characters are introduced left and right only to be killed of within a few chapters after meeting the MC.

The world building is not really there since the only explanation is "it's this real life area and a dungeon appeared there", "he fights an orc" etc.

In short the only focus of the story is the MC leveling up, gaining new loot, getting more skills, growing stronger and fighting/being badass (while everyone else is an idiot most of the time or just weak). While the author tries to hint at an overreaching plot and a lot of behind the scene happenings it is poorly delivered.

It also doesn't help that the author seems to have something against Japanese ppl and portrays them in a negative light, the author seems to have a beef with the Japanese occupation of Korea from a hundred + years ago.

I'd give this 2, 5 stars for trying but being generous I'll give it 3. <<less

Your typical Korean novel in terms of quality and the translation is good too. Reminds me a lot of emperor of solo play and what it would be if it were reality instead of a vrmmo. Definitely read if you love necromancer protags or K novels like me.

This novel could be described mediocre at its best. It reads as if it is a rpg grind log with some padding thrown in. Main character is extremely one dimensional and can only think of revenge, being a cheap f*ck, and how he is the best hunting dog there was and will ever be! Side "characters" are extremely unremarkable and unmemorable. I see almost no redeeming qualities of this novel except for its extreme blandness.

I recommend reading it only to pass time when you have nothing to do.

It's a complete art piece. But the defining characteristic its the way it deals with politics.

But I like the determination of MC, and some how it ends up feeling true, as if they were really in a corrupt place were good manifest in a very limited fashion and evil is simply more resourceful.

... more>>

Some times it feels over complicated and too evil because it's like there's only very few people doing the good.

And just adding a few elements would turn it into an exemptional novel but still I feel the way this was executed it's very very satisfying.


One of the things I'm sorry for it's it lacks romance.. Even like a third party romance that's not with food hehe

The reason who I say it's complete it's because it feels very credible, like the reason MC doesn't find love it's simply because of his character, he was always a crazy person right etc.. Ofc it would be better if something dramatic would change him but what I love is that MC regardless has one ideal say any cost and pursues it without rest.

And the author always always respects that's

That's some thing I admire the capacity to stay true to your values and knowing what it takes to stay firm.


I'd recommend this if you want to see someone special pursue a special unique goal..

This is not the best novel but it's a very special inspiring novel. It's like watching a true solitary warrior that has choses his destiny.

Also they way he plans things is awesome, very good it's not like everything it's prepared to him in a crude way.

And the enemies may be too evil but for this novel I think they make a good feeling if you want to see that kind of struggle.

Honestly this novel I wouldn't recommend easily because the thing that makes it special it's for a kind of taste really. And for example it honestly lacks romance and could use some more comedy.

But really I like it, there's to few novels with this feeling

And the author really good I think he's definitely capable of more I'll look for what other novels he's made. He's very capable of improving and I take look forward for his other works. In fact I'm a fan now. <<less

Yet another necro novel. (Seoul station necromancer, emperor of solo play).
I would describe this as the most chinese korean novel I've read (power up fashion/slaughter/supremacy/etc.) If you like the typical wuxia power up condensed from 2000+ chapters into something like 200, it should be your go-to novel.


MC trains a several trees (poison/skeleton), but skill usage is separate. Has an alter ego hero identity setup for different skill tree which uses to exploit the bad guys, whatever. That's about it, the only bland difference from regular novel

The protagonist is the luckiest unlucky person.

The story isn't really worth it. It is something that you read on autopilot.
