My Husband Was the Master of the Magic Tower

Description

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

My husband wasn’t just a mere magician, but he is the Master of the Magic Tower. I didn’t know that fact.

I wasn’t just a mere dimension shifter, but someone with eternal youth and immortality. My husband didn’t know that fact.

I was killed by a bomb that suddenly exploded in the village, and I woke up 10 years after that. And the news that came to my ears was that the Master of the Magic Tower had gone mad and had been on a rampage for 10 years.

I get it that he doesn’t know I’m alive, but what’s up again with him being crazy?

This is actually fire. I normally don’t write reviews this early, but I can immediately tell that this is a gem! This is not some dog blood drama or depression riddled KR novel. Rather, the good writing, natural interactions between the FL and ML, and good TL made it a unique and interesting read.

I really hope this continues to be actively updated and that the author does not butcher it with a bad ending.

It's really worth to read even though there are just 5 chapters right now. The FL is kinda indifferent and just doing things that she wants to, while the ML was prickly at first and turns to be embarrassed oftenly when he's with the FL. It didn't come as something annoying, rather, it's quite hilarious seeing their dynamics from FL's point of view. I'll wait for the next update.

Edit:

whoah so the FL finally finds out his feeling in just 6 chapters. I thought she was gonna be quite dense, but no. It's good tho

I love it! The pacing of the story is perfect for me, it tends to get boring if it gets dragged for too long.

I love how FL is not dense with how the ML feels. And the ML is super cute he blushes a lot!

Definitely one of the best isekai stories so far, yes even at chapter 6.

The translation is also great, thanks for picking this up! Please update more!

Even though there's a cohabitation plot involved, the romance between the two leads develops at a natural rate.

FL is particularly mature and communicates clearly with the ML, I would even say she's quite blunt at times. So a lot of draggy stuff and misunderstandings are avoided, and the result is a refreshingly straightforward romance story, and the credit for that goes to FL.

But of course, one misunderstanding still occurs!

Both are immortal, but somehow this 'small notice' cannot be deliver to each other due to missing timing.

Love that they're not that dense in figuring out their own feelings. Their love is cute, give and take, trust and protect. Embracing and accepting.

Love the clean translation, although sometimes there's small error here and there. Worth to read

immortality

[collapse]
aspect of the story is handled.

Spoiler

Both FL and ML are immortals essentially but we can feel their mutual pining and pain, and it's realistic, because they don't know that each other is immortal. I really like the FL's thoughts on how she can never die, and how lonely that kind of life is.

"Whether I really forgot or was deliberately trying not to remember, but it didn't matter now.

Every time I felt happy because of the promise that I wouldn't have any regrets about the past, I felt anxious at the same time. All the present will someday become the past, and happy memories always remain as regrets."

Thank you to the translation group for their fast translations! <<less

They have a nice dynamic, with him also having semi-separation anxiety... She doesn't show her emotions very much and he only has emotions for her. Basically that.

Honestly it was so good!!

While there is a plot with conflix, villain, and all, the story actually focused more on the main characters' development in their relationship. I love the characters' dynamic and growth whenever they are trying to solve their relationship problems.

Spoiler

The author can trully portray the ML's insecurity towards FL after the 10 years separation, and how the FL finally realized and tried to solve it.

I'm sorry, everyone says it's great, but I just cannot stand the writing. All I'm reading are her or his thoughts and I just feel it's a little flate. It feels like a typical manga and if that was the case, I might be able to enjoy it, but as a work of literature, I can't let it pass.

⚠️ WARNING⚠️ Bias complaint

The man literally destroyed her house and has been rude to her ever since, but the first thing she does is talk kindly and ask him to eat?! I guess dying too many times made her s*upid and emotionless.

Also, I understand KR writers are not native English, but a female teacher named Julian? A male lead named Dante? A female lead named Ei? I understand you probably want Dante because of the 9 Hells and that's supposed to be so great, but really? Out of so many other great names? Also what the hell is Ei?

This is really damn good!!

The pacing is mostly great. I never felt like anything dragged on too long, though some things I felt could have been dragged a little longer for the drama and tension. However I much prefer pacing that is a bit fast sometimes to pacing that bores me to death with how slow it is.

All of the conflict feels meaningful and reasonable. Nothing so far feels s*upidity contrived to make plot happen. What the characters do to cause the conflict feels grounded and believable. I may think... more>> some of the things some characters did was s*upid or a bad idea, but it was always a result of the characters being true to themselves and their circumstances. Sometimes characters did things that felt a little bit too convenient for the plot, but for me it was passable.

The character writing is very consistent and on point. I never felt like someone became a completely different person. They read a little bit flat to me, but it didn't detract too much from my enjoyment of the story so far.

The romance is sweet and I quite enjoyed it. It uses some tropes, but they're the tropes I like.

Spoiler

Basically he becomes interested in het because she doesn't react to him or treat him like most people do. She's indifferent of him. Then that interest turns into curiousity, and then he falls in love.

[collapse]

And yeah I really like them ^^ She doesn't try to fix him, he doesn't try to fix her. There's a point where he's a bit pushy, but for me it was short and mild enough that I was able to look past it.

Will update this review when I finish the book ~ <<less

1.5 stars: Initially flipflopped between giving this a 3-3.5 stars and possibly marking it as a 4-star, but after a certain point, ugh, dropped it to 2 stars because the story before that point was readable and inoffensive with some cute parts but at the same time wasn't particularly interesting or investing. Tried reading a little more and nope, decided to drop another half star and also drop the story. I don't get all the 5-star ratings unless the story does a 180 and drastically changes tone with super improved... more>> writing, plot, and actual character development later on. The translation is decent at least.

The heroine Ei's first-person narration is kind of monotone and she has little interest in building or maintaining relationships because of her immortality, has no desires, goals, or hobbies, and doesn't dwell on the past or let it affect her, so she comes across as having little personality. More than once she remarks that her emotions are dulled due to her dimension-shifting and immortality and occasional violent deaths—and somehow despite how intriguing those things sound, nope, she's just a boring person drifting through life. She thinks the ML Dante is hot at first sight and continues to think he's hot but doesn't really seem to care that he showed up near her house in a bloody near-dead state or that he somehow blew up her house upon waking—her reaction is basically "eh, oh well, how inconvenient". Even when she supposedly falls in love, it's more because he fell in love first and she knew it but didn't say anything and eventually decided well, he's pretty hot, and I guess I'm used to him being around now since he's been living here forever, and I suppose I'd miss him if he were gone, so I guess I have feelings for him, maybe we should get married even though I don't know that much about him but that's fine.

The story will sometimes switch to Dante's third-person POV, and he has more character and personality than Ei even if a lot of it is generic. He reads like a tsundere shoujo manga lead, grumpy and not sure why he's so into Ei, then realizing he loves her, but is also frequently puzzled/confused by how indifferent she is to so many things. He's more complex and interesting than Ei, but that isn't saying much considering how uninteresting Ei is in the first place. I'm not sure why he's into her and together they don't have much chemistry—it feels like he's in love with her and she blandly accepts that without really reciprocating.

The story also has intermittent chapters from random third person POVs. They don't add anything to the story except to pad its length with boring exterior observations of Ei and Dante, generally admiring or envying one or the other or both for whatever reason, or as pure plot devices to move the story along.

Still, there was enough low-key fluff and interest in seeing the summary-promised "village bomb-death" thing to keep me casually reading until I hit the Immortality Plot Point and its presentation is enough to make me want to tear my hair out because even though I know Not Communicating and Holding Back Information and Dumb*ss Misunderstandings are the bread-and-butter of romance stories—

Spoiler

I just COULD NOT EVEN when Ei undramatically finds out that Dante is, in fact, also immortal and then... she just decides not to tell him she is too. WHAT THE ****. She doesn't have any reason not to tell him except some super vague "well, I've never told anyone before, it seems like it's kind of hard for me to bring up because of that, I guess I'll just put it off until it comes up, we should be fine together anyway for some years, maybe someday I'll tell him I'm immortal and can't die and will eventually revive if I'm killed... "

All this after her previous emphasis on living a calm loner (if not necessarily lonely) life because of the endless emotional exhaustion involved in having any kind of close relationship with people whom she will always outlive.

Literally, this woman finds out that her super hot husband that she's supposedly so in love with is ALSO IMMORTAL and declines to tell him about her own immortality and how it works. Because of no particular reason.

Not to mention that her whole "dimension-shifting" ability is revealed off-screen to Dante, unless I somehow missed reading it—it's, like, token mentioned off-handedly that oh yeah he was surprisingly accepting of her telling him about the dimension-traveling thing and didn't question it at all, and yet she felt that she just couldn't bear to follow that up by telling him about her immortality/resurrection ability because she had vague negative feelings about it.

Naturally her violent bomb-death occurs immediately after she promises to tell him a secret when he gets back from work i.e. tell him about her immortality, and then she revives 10 years later. And she still lacks any kind of emotion or personality, instead calmly walking around to find out where she is (there are weird rules about her dying so if she dies in a fire or by drowning she'll revive in a random location for whatever reason, and this time she revives wearing our-world-modern-day-clothing for whatever reason), and then blah blah, convenient plot stuff happens so she finds out about Dante being the Master of the Mage Tower and going "mad" and seeking bloody vengeance on those responsible for her death for the past 10 years, and her reaction is basically to decide, "Oh. Poor Dante. Too bad I didn't ever get around to telling him about my immortality thing. I guess I'd better try to go see him."

We also get a couple of brief Dante-POV scenes where he's beyond melodramatically mourning Ei, like, literally standing in pools of the blood of his enemies while angsting over her death 10 years ago. He did not seem that obsessed with her when they were together and although her death was unequivocally violent and horrible, his behavior and actions are so hyperbolic I can't take him seriously. There was no setup at all for this level of reaction from him, no indication that he had any particularly obsessive, vengeful, or extreme personality, or that he was passionately, deeply, wholly, insanely in super-love with Ei.

All this is around chapter 34 or so, and there are 147 main-story chapters total. What the **** happens for 113 more chapters.

Oh, and if you're curious, the bomb-death thing was a declaration of war by an enemy country because it makes a lot of sense to declare war by brutally magic-bombing a small unknown village on the border clean off the map and killing everyone. I don't know if there's going to be some Secret Reveal that the village was tactically important somehow or maybe they were targeting the village because they knew Dante and/or his wife was living there (though apparently him being married was kind of a secret not known outside the village?), but it seems like maybe not because the Magic Tower was supposedly a neutral entity until Ei's death, when Dante went batsh*t and went out to eradicate the enemy country's forces in alliance with their home country.

[collapse]

I don't really like Ei and don't care about her at all, Dante is okay at first but after Ei dies he turns into a cartoon of the Mortal Agony of Endless Grief and Thirst for Vengeance, and everything just got too dumb for me to continue reading—and I read a lot of shoujo, josei, and yaoi manga, and BL and romance novels. My capacity for tolerating dumb misunderstandings as pivotal plot points is huge. And yet I'm still dropping this novel. Ouch. <<less
