The mysterious boy Ling Chen is saved by a little girl as he lay on the street dying. Years later, he strikes a deal to save this savior-turned sister and enters the virtual world. In a future Earth where advanced warfare has forced nations to settle issues virtually or else suffer the consequences, Ling Chen bursts into the scene and goes from unknown to legend. Yet all is not as it seems, for Ling Chen has a dark past, and there is a greater mystery at hand behind this virtual world.

To save his terminally ill little sister, Ling Chen enters the newly released virtual game world and joins a small gaming studio comprising entirely of women. From now on walking upon his path towards the pinnacle. An ancient, evil item almost forgotten by history, the “Lunar Scourge” helps forge his unsurpassable legend, and causes him to unknowingly step upon a path that is destined to be punished by the heavens, the way of the Shura.

After the Japanese arc, I've completely lost interest. From an MC you root for, to a Trash MC.

I usually love anti-heroes but this guy's just a plain villain that you can not reason with. The author turned the MC to somebody I can no longer sympathize with. Such a waste.

Started out good then from the Japanese miniarc it went down hill real fast, especially the final arc. Whole Japan arc was racist stuff like in all Chinese novels that involve any japan-china interaction.

The story was good at the start with rpg fantasy settings it always excite you when MC got some op skill, pet and items[novels like legendary sculptor or overgeared], then in the midway it become a truly bullcrap Chinese novel that you will always find in every Chinese novel (Racism, and author always write that the MC was good person through some kind of karma, heavenly or etc, even though he always do every despicable and evil things like rape, killing etc) so I rate 2.6 or 3 cause the... more>> start was good until midway <<less

Good book, badass main character who's kind of an Anti Hero. I enjoyed how I was constantly surprised and how quickly he progressed constantly. Like as if it was impossible enough for him to achieve some 'certain thing', he is then somehow able to reach a step higher. He simply does crazy things, and while his lustful nature interrupted and extended the book a fair bit, it was still a good book.

Pretty decent if I say so myself. It's just the setting and power balance are kinda too absurd.

First, power balance, when we see the world as a game, sure the level and grade things sound plausible, but when it's seen as a 'world', these things aren't balanced at all. As if from other POV grade is everything matter, but from MC POV level is everything.

Then about the setting, firstly it's about a man playing a game, then he added mad scientist + modification + killing things, not enough, he turned the game into another world, still not enough, Gods appeared here and there, and finally galactic war is about to begin.

Well, aside from, let me say it again, the tension / suspense is actually quite good here.

One of the very few story that I managed to complete.

*sigh*

It's a good read, but the author fcked everything up at the ending... Like most novel that has a plot crisis when author can't get anymore ideas to write about, this pitiful novel get a super accelerator and reach the ending in a dozen of chapter.

I didn't saw it coming.. It COULD be better.

But yeah I don't know what you search for in this review, but for me it worth my time.. Except for the end arc.

EDIT 2: The ending is some premium grade bulls**t. I'm rescinding my recommendation below.

EDIT: You know, "racist" was a strong term to use and I somewhat regret saying it. Ling Chen is definitely an ass and an idiot, though. Revised down to 2 stars.

Recommended: If you're looking for some action and you don't mind if it's stupidly macho, sure.

I've heard SW described as a predecessor to Against the Gods, and they do both share certain flaws... namely, the MC is a raging sack of testosterone and every woman he meets... more>> is a cardboard cutout that can't wait to jump him. On the other hand, he's not quite so egregious as to go around personally slaughtering innocent people for very little reason, so that's at least one thing he has over ATG. He is quite racist though, so it about balances out. Yeah... let's just say East Asian regional conflict is out in full force once again in this novel.

In the end, though, I do like Shura's Wrath slightly more than ATG, if only because I'm a sucker for game elements, which this does deliver. <<less

I don't even know what to say other than this is one of my favorite novels. It's really entertaining and has a good pace. Also, if you like ATG then you'd probably like this.

Now, how do I put it? This is not classic literature or anything like that, sometimes I feel like people expect this from these novels. Not me, as long as it's entertaining and MC is not an idiot then I'm good.

Only thing I don't really like is the racism, but I just ignore it when it happens.... more>> It's not like it's key to the story.

Also, I've seen people expect tension and whatnot from this and other novels. I feel like they're the type of people that want the MC or someone close to him to die just so that story is more realistic or something. Not me though, I can watch the news for that kind of thing. Novel is good as it is. Plus, the road isn't as smooth and peachy as they make it out to be. Dont want to spoil so ill just say that some things happen along the way but everything works out at the end. So yeah, I really recommend this. <<less

Shura's Wrath has a really smooth flow with great plot development. The cliffhangers aren't forced at all, and the suspense left at the end of most chapters keeps the reader (me) coming back to read the next chapter on a daily basis.

Spoiler

A few of my favorite twists were the death of Shui Ruo. That was completely unexpected, and it really invoked sympathy for Ling Chen.

Another one was the sudden reappearance of instructor hell. That was an amazing twist, and even better scene to read.

The episode with all of the mysterious figures talking, however, was really extra because it is kind of in the middle. I get the point of it, but they haven't expanded on it at all. But since it does have a lot of significance it makes me impatient for the author to expound on it.

Great VR-MMO novel. All the characters are relevant to the plot and have depth to them. The translation speed is fast and the quality is good. The real-life aspect is also as interesting as the in-game aspect. The main character is OP as well. :)

Shura's Wrath is a great VR-MMORPG sci-fi/fantasy novel with a powerful main character, the story is very different to other novels of the same genre that I have read, the game world is very well described and it feels very alive as the main character explores the game world.

The story is filled with twists and turns that most of the time is difficult to see coming. The stories of the characters outside the game are well explored and makes the characters come to life in such a way that you... more>> can’t help but get excited/angry/happy right along side them.

So if you enjoy VR-MMORPG sci-fi/fantasy novels with mysteries and a great set of character’s then Shura’s Wrath is definitely something you should give a try, even if you are just into game like novels I would recommend giving Shura’s Wrath a try.

PS. Harem applenty :D <<less

First of all, let me make this clear, this novel will be much different than any of other "VRMMORPG" from Korea or Japan. Also, don't even compare it to Ark/LMS, because they are much worse. Ark/LMS are still great stories, but Shura's Wrath is on an extremely higher level.

And a piece of advice, treat the whole RPG as an adventure instead of a game despite the focus of the early chapters was (a bit too much) on the RPG aspects.

The story was one of the most interesting stories I've ever... more>> read, the real world is often neglected in other novels but it was very well developed, shocking even. The Real-Life was very focused on the novel and had a very interesting story that played out very well in the end. The author also didn't shy away from having the MC getting some action (explicit even) with his harem which is very rare in Japanese mangas/novels. Each harem member has a purpose.

Let's have a bit of spoiler about his harem, the number of his harem was around

Spoiler

50+ but of course, many of them are only minor characters - that were a part of his past organizations that work behind the scenes - and only mentioned once. The main harem was about 7-9. And you'll even get a canon best girl at the very last chapter.

This is my first time writing a review so I'm gonna make this as short and sweet as I can and maybe another time I will make a long one.

What I want to say is that this book is truly amazing. If you want to get the taste of what an absurdly overpowered character both in the real world and in the virtual world can be like then I hope you are already reading instead of wasting your time reading my short review XD.

Anyways if you want a little break... more>> from the generic wuxia novels, which are not bad mind you, and like op characters with harem as an added factor (I know it's a turn off and on for others) then seriously if you got this far in the review please heed my words and start reading I truly don't think you will regret it.

Welp, hope you have a good day, OlympianX out! <<less

This is a great series, (all of the stuff from Mars Gravity is amazing) - It does its intended job of being a power-progression fantasy while also using very quality writing to make you react heavily, whether it's with surprise, sadness or just the feel-good moment as the protagonist kicks someone's ass.

Characters

Most character decisions make perfect sense for the character and there are lots of implicit reactions or wordings from characters that tell you so much more about the character than the (more) typical Chinese way of telling with... more>> the very blunt, or direct methodology. (The difference is a good change) - all well written too.

The names (as an English reader) always take a while but you always know who's talking by what/the way the characters say even without needing a name, as there will be a character who fits the line being said.

Story

Every character is interesting in his/her own way as the reader explores everything from the POV of the main character while learning about his past in slow steps surprising myself more than once. The use of foreshadowing is amazing from Mars Gravity- if you can pick up on some of the clues he lays down when the moment of revelation that occurs is so satisfying and is just amazing.

Sure he is super lucky and defeats everyone due to very manner- but even this is explained to some degree and by no means are the 1v1 fights ever boring. The story it'self is never boring either, with multiple facets of the story being explored, while maintaining a very concise and direct storyline very very minor spoiler:
Spoiler

(*hue hue* which sometimes has good plot twists)

[collapse]

Sure it is a progressive harem- but it makes sense somewhat within the story.

Recommending it

It does take a lot of reading for it to get amazing, but that's because you have to world build and explore the plot along with the main character. Definitely worth it-

You have to like the game-like genre for it to really speak out at the beginning, but at the same time the game-like space is completely irrelevant to the plot as its used to fuel it- but the actual interesting interactions happen either within the game-world or in the 'real' world- where personally, the more interesting parts of the story occur.

I can't really say how many chapters you should read if you want to see for yourself, but anything past 15 chapters just gets better and better. <<less

Well, I enjoyed reading this.

Aside from basically stupid luck and opness with blatant convenient self-serving writing, the setting as a whole is great with the subplot being fine as is (if youre already fine with the opness otherwise its kinda left field). Its an obvious power wank but im surprised mars gravity wrote something like this as its clearly much better compared to the heavenly mess of ATG but still has things that are off. Although if you're looking for something well written, theres many more things better. The main... more>> appeal is basically the world and system for me. <<less

Shura's Wrath somehow makes its vrmmorpg aspect unique without sacrificing its real world interactions and instead brings the real world to its full potential. I recommend you try this if you normally read any of the xianxia or wuxia stuff gravity tales puts out. I'm at the latest released chapter and its intense, no better way to put it.

The story is basic... at first then slowly reveals itself more and more, its the stripper of stories. Every chapter shown makes you want more. By the time you get to... more>> chapter 100 you'll be invested, at chapter 200 you'll be howling for more, at chapter 300 you'll be anxiously waiting for the next release. Unless action and adventure centered stories with light romance and comedic elements isn't for you. <<less

I'll echo a few comments here. If you haven't read past about chapter 400 then you shouldn't post a review. The MC takes a drastic change in personality. Previous to this the MC was likeable and was reliable. His character was solid and you felt like you know him. That all changed.

First the Japanese hatred. For those of you unfamiliar with this, a tremendous amount of Chinese despise the Japanese. If you want to know why in a microcosm, just Google the massacre of Nanking. There is a history and... more>> it's understandable, but I'm not particularly interested in politics in a fantasy novel and this one goes a little over the top.

Without spoilers, the MC also becomes a rapist, murderer and for all intents a pedophile, even though it's dressed up as the child being thousands of years old. It wrecks his heroic image.

Finally he's just too OP. I like my heroes to be OP, but this was silly. <<less

Only going to give four stars as it kept me entertained enough to read through the end.

I like the concept and background of where VR meets IRL in some form. The last half feels rushed to me. All this slow built up to OP land, then what? Though, I feel it lost a lot of its "bring IRL skills into VRPG" in the later potions, where it turns into skill this, and skill that.

Spoiler

Could care less for the goddess rpe scene. Also, I know it was mentioned before about his love life, but ffs, the later part of the novel turned into a fkfest. Would also have seen some more interaction between worlds knowing that it wasn't just some game setting.

[collapse]

Was going to rate 3 out of 5 based on the last half and the weakish ending, but compared to some others, I can work with it. <<less

Truly fitting Mars gravity's style, so if you liked his others work (ATG, Evil dragon) you will surely like this one.

Pretty much it's an OP MC, face slapping everything in his paths while collecting a bunch of women along the way, nothing too deep at the same nor shallow.

Also the suspense is pretty good.

Impeccable translations with an outstanding writing style.

Ling Chen is quite possibly your typically "I worked hard to be here, so now I'll take over the world!" kind of character. Don't get me wrong, this is amazing. The harem is a little not so believable, but EVERYONE has their uses in this novel up until the current point, should their name be described. Although it's a VR game (?!) novel, so sometimes you'll see them killed right away with an eventual return.
