okay hold up, I admit that when I first started reading this I thought it was a complete chore. I mean all the dang complicated words not to mention the nonsense in the first chapter - buuutt, give it a chance. I guarantee that once most of you pass at least the first three chapters, you wouldn’t be able to put it down.

The first chapter and the second give you a little background, the first is for the world. The world in this story is centred around music which is... more>> the medium for them to use magic or aether (this is all completely a loose interpretation as of now but that’s basically the gist of it.. Actually now that I think of it, it could be the other way around). Long story short, musicians are the top dog of this world. The second chapter gives you a lil insight on the MC - yezi and his dream about being a musician as well as inklings of his past.

he used to be an uber genius because he had a special inborn relationship with the aether which is like the basis of whether or not you have talent to be a musician. He lost this connection somehow during a high fever. His father also seems to be connected to a herectic clan of musician and is claimed to have killed sixteen musicians or so which is a major crime.


honestly I like the MC as of now. He isnt super op and he isnt haughty or feels entitled to things for no reason. He kind of takes things as they come but not in an annoying way. Tbh he wakes up my “let onee-chan look after you, you poor boi, you” feels. Plus he has a dog with a personality. What more could you ask for? <<less

The story started out promising, as many do, but loses its focus just as similarly. What starts as a school arc ends with the MC somehow being a top tier magician after one month. He becomes batman and is beating all these criminal bosses left and right somehow, while he has only attended the academy for less than month. I just can't get over the fact that the author makes the MC "weak" when he remembers to write academy content, but he is so strong once he steps one foot... more>> outside of the school. Simple fact is that the author lost control of his story, and is padding out his pagecount by writing whatever nonsense that first comes into his head. He lives in the capital of magic yet there seems to not be a single person which any knowledge of magic.

The writing itself can became melodramatic and pretentious at times as the author is trying to make a one dimensional story deep, but it doesn't work out. The whole magic system is poorly thought out and poorly explained. Side characters are one dimensional and boring. The story just is not consistent in its direction, or intentions. While it is not the worst novel I have ever read, I do not recommend reading it.

2/5 <<less

This is one of underrated novels I discovered recently, trust me it is really GOOD novel! I admit that in the first two chapters, I was confused not knowing what is the author trying to convey. But, I am glad to continue on reading and did not dropped this novel directly. This novel is really good! This novel give us reader something new and fresh. Some of you who is already fed up with your usual xuanhuan novel, this novel is really fit for you!

The pace of the story is relatively slow when compared to other good LNs... ✨✨ (as mentioned by other review first two chapters are absolutely terrible)

Still this novel has depth and content that is not easily found...✨✨✨

The concept is very original and the world is well described...✨✨✨

I give this novel a 4.4/5 for an MC who is not a bit*h and a storyline that is truly original (with creative content) 😊

This novel has a lot of potential but unfortunately, it tries too hard to be mysterious and throws in too many cut scenes happening from all over the place. I'm sure eventually, it will lead back to being associated to the MC but it's too confusing. There's simply way too much stuff going on that I stopped caring about it halfway.

First 1-3 chapters will make you confused. Especially the first chapter. BUT! Once you stick it through, you'll figure out what was going on in those first few chapters (hint: it's a backstory/prologue that gets expanded on later). The real story begins once that 'prologue' is past, focusing on our MC with white hair.

A very good hidden gem kind of novel -- A+ plot, A+ creativity, A+ characters, A+ relationship development (romantic and platonic). Just have to bear with the confusion of the first chapter or so. Highly recommend this... more>> novel! <<less

Although the story seems all over the place when it reached about 200s chapters, the Author managed to pick it up and put the plot in the right track after a while. It's completely worth it to read until the very end. Not only did the questions about the world got answered, but the conclusion of the conflicts also tied off very beautifully in the end.

You may think that the story is very cliche and rip-off most of the names from other timeless masterpieces (Ex: Arthur, Odin, Holmes and... more>> Watson), and it is very true. Some parts of the story suddenly became a detective genre story. However, after the rip-off fever had died off, the combination of the legends and plot twists came off as a one-of-a-kind ride.

The author also had a very interesting idea of philosophy clashes, as well as emotional drama. The world-building is very solid and gave off the image of a dynamic world. All in all, definitely a must-read from me. <<less

Stuck with it forever and really enjoyed it for its action and character interactions and the unique setting (like really really unique).

Buuut... I have to only give it 3 stars, as it is becoming increasingly clear that the author doesn't know what he's doing with the plot or the setting. It gets more and more disfocused and plot threads are discarded and lost. In some ways it really feels like it's an actual world; more like a D&D campaign than a story. But I don't really feel like that is... more>> a good thing; it just ends up being out of place and disfocused in a novel like this.

It also quickly gets out of hand; the best parts of the novel were when the MC had to use limited powers to overcome the threats he faced through witty uses. By the end we are in some dragonball Z sh*t whereupon a literal god is calling down lightning from the heavens to oppose the MC's power of gathering the magic of all the musicians.

Overall however, the setting is enough to keep it interesting. I'd recommend you read it, but with low expectations; you'll probably eventually drop it, but you'll drop it with a feeling of "that was pretty decent but went a bit too weird; I wish the author had explored the plot more and paced things better". Anyone thinking "only a musician can read this" is also mistaken. These are musicians in the sense that they use music to cast magic, but really none of the music is relevant if you know what the songs do in universe. Also he kinda threw away the whole music part near the end, which is one of the reasons it fell out of my favor.

But of all the novels wherein famous musicians from real life fight eachother using the powers of mechsuits, Norse deities, Satan, King Arthur, the Leviathan from the bible, and the Great Wall of China, this has got to be my favorite. Give it a try, just so that you can see a novel that truly tried for a completely unique premise. <<less

Very uneven, I cannot recommend it.


  • MC is good natured, and interesting.
  • the world is fascinating.
  • some really endearing side characters.

  • one dimensional evil villains.
  • some very bad chapters.

It's a good novel! :D Might be a bit confusing though.

The characters are interesting and have depth. There are many mysteries in the plot. The plot twists are fun. The setting/world is interesting and detailed.

The author is really good at being descriptive. Too many details and blobs of info might turn away some readers, but I feel that it's not really a serious issue. The poetic descriptions match the theme of music, right?

There are references that might be a bit annoying, but they're not too significant.

Overall a good read. There were some really strong chapters in this novel, but also some really bad one.

The quality of this novel really went through a curve, but overall a good read with great world building and and in some places surprisingly deep.

I’ll give this novel 5 stars just to offset some of the bad reviews.

I think people should give this novel a chance. The ending wraps it up nicely and very fittingly.

I fvcking love this! There are points that would made you drop this novel but if you could get past that, god the novel is such a gem!

Prologue. The beginning chapter already scared most of the readers. It's confusing and not really related to the MC at all but more like a world background. I love it though, just like some western epic fantasy I've read.

Protagonist. Weak but not a pushover. I love it that he isn't really OP and would gradually strengthen BUUUUTTTTT around 100+ he got... more>> a major buff! And he's suddenly OP despite being a musician in just a month. I don't like that tho. But I'll trust the other review that it would get better after 200+ chs

Female Lead. You'll be annoyed at her first but she'll be a sneaky adorable cinnamon roll later on.

Writing. Fvcking beautiful!!! I don't know anything about music (I'm tone deaf) but the descriptions always always always make me goosebumps. This is what kept me going

Magic System. Unique since it uses music but ppl will still understand it even though they don't anything about music at all. I love aether!

World Background. Very well written. It's still pretty confusing for me since at these chapter there's still little information about it.

I'm glad I discovered this <<less

Okay, bear with the slightly bizzare transition in the first 200-ish chapter and you'll get a nice surprise

I'm currently reserving my judgement on this one
