Lord of the Mysteries


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

In the waves of steam and machinery, who could achieve extraordinary? In the fogs of history and darkness, who was whispering? I woke up from the realm of mysteries and opened my eyes to the world.

Firearms, cannons, battleships, airships, and difference machines. Potions, divination, curses, hanged-man, and sealed artifacts… The lights shone brightly, yet the secrets of the world were never far away. This was a legend of the “fool”.

As of where I am now, I love it! The amount of care and world building put into it is amazing for a webnovel. It does feel like I am reading a western mystery novel. The mixture of steampunk, high fantasy, magical powers and turn of century detective agency is very promising. I am praying that it will continue to amaze me in the coming chapters!

For an isekai novel, the MC is slightly different because

he wants to return to his old life and he tried


He is cautious and street smart, but he doesn’t know everything so sometimes he had to lie through his teeth in desperate attempt to dig himself out of a predicament. I like it as it shows he is just like us, an everyday man.. Also a non OP MC is always a plus in my book.

I am surprised that this novel didn’t get much more publicity or higher up the series ranking. <<less

This is a great novel that is extremely intriguing. Not saying it's the G.O.A.T or anything, but don't pass this novel up without giving it a try.


the main character becomes a "seer" meaning he can see the future. Right now it's not so straight forward and he has to advance in his powers. It will be interesting to see if he actually gets combat powers with the seer role he has chosen.

I'm utterly shocked at how a good novel like this has such a low rating, even more so, because this novel is from the same author who wrote novels like Throne of Magical Aracania and Martial Arts Master. This novel is about abut a guy who reincarnates in a world that is similar to Britain in the 19. Century. The protagonist reincarnated into someone who died under extremely weird circumstances and is trying to find out what exactly happened. Upon investigating he stumbles across extraordinary and... more>> magical forces that have only been heard about in legends and faces many dangers, yet he still keeps going to chase after the truth and learn more about those extraordinary powers.

That is more or less a reaaaaaaaaaaaaally basic introduction of the novel, if you enjoy novels like "Release that Witch" or "Warlock of the Magus World" you will with a veeery high probability enjoy this one as well. My review might be a bit biased because no novel of Cuttlefish That Loves Diving has disappointed me so far, but I seriously love this novel. The world is highly realistic the characters are unique, all those weird powers are extremely interesting and the story has a good management about pacing and keeping the story interesting. I highly recommend this novel to every western fantasy fan and give it 5/5 stars (more 4.5, but the rating is already so bad, so I have to boost it a little) and please don't let the rating scare you away (of course the rating could also be there because the translation isn't good, have only read the raws so I can't judge that) <<less

This novel is probably one of the best fantasy mistery novel that i've ever read (well im a scaredy cat so I dont really read mistery/horror/thriller novel lol). The MC is quite shameless, witty, and not OP. The worldbuilding is very detailed. The side characters arent just an empty follower of MC. The enemies arent too stupid like typical CN novel (which is very nice~ so tired of faceslapping plot -_-).

And the best part of the novel is..... theres no romance!.... yet... maybe... hopefully haha. Will wait for the next... more>> chapter~

P.s Bless u google translate for making it easy to mtl this wuwuwu :'D <<less

This is a thrilling supernatural steampunk mystery that starts a bit slow wit the world-building but then really spins it's story well. Although I'm still in the beginning of the story, the suspense has built up enough to put me on the edge of my seat. I am looking forward to the cases the MC will be investigating.

Decent novel so far. It has unique power levels/power (one of the only reasons I am actually reading the novel). A average MC. And some okay side characters. Nothing too exciting has happened in the chapters I have read. We are still getting introduced towards the story I feel like, so I am expecting it to get better in the future chapters.

One thing that I don't like about the story so far, is that there are alot.. I mean alot of fillers in most of the chapters. I understand that... more>> the author is trying to help us understand his world better (or just trying to pad his word count) but it just becomes boring and uninteresting after a while. The chapters are long, but so are the fillers/fluffs. Sometimes I can skip like 30-40% of the chapter and still understand whats happening.

For example

At the beginning of the story when MC first comes into this world, we see him exploring the outside world, buying food and so on... I can understand this much, but afterwards the author goes into further details about how the MC cooks the food, how its made and how good the food he cooked is and so on for almost half the chapter, explaining it in details which isnt bad per say but I just dont see how this progresses the story. This whole part can be skipped and you would still know that the MC cooked food, and it was really delicious.


There are alot of cases like these to the point that I was actually about to just drop the story. But around Ch 30 it slowly picks up and gets more interesting, so far the story is okay but I will have to wait and see how it goes. For newer readers I would recommend waiting till roughly ch 30 to see if you like the novel or not. <<less

I dont have much to say, but so far, the story is engaging. The characters have their own lives, separate from the protagonist. If I had to relate this to anything, this novel reminds me of Re:Zero. Also, the translation is quite good.
