This story was a disappointment to me, it started out great I loved the worldbuilding, and in fact why I dislike it is not due to its slow start. For me a slow start can be a positive, if it's done right.

What I liked about this story was that it seemed like a Xuanhuan story that did not focus solely on the main character, but one in which the side characters held importance too, and one in which the main character didn't engage massive armies alone, when he had the... more>> option of doing so with an army at his side.

Also I liked that the story while having some romance to it, it wasn't the usually oppressive romance you find in many more mainstream Xianxia / Xuanhuan, the character respected females, at least that was how the story was written.

So what went wrong?

Simple the story degenerated, it went from focusing on armies and collaboration, into a generic Xuanhuan story, it seems like (to me at least, don't hold me up on this as I may be wrong), that the author had either done storyboarding for the first 80'ish chapters, or the author gave into comment pressure, and desided to focus on the main character moreso than his armies, to the point that the otherwise fairly logical main character decided to do illogical things, and things which goes against his previously established morals, all in favour of a powerful alpha male type of character.


As such I cannot recommend it as an amazing story, it's still good enough if you want something decently enjoyable, but I seriously do think that the author gave into pressure from fans who wanted something more generic, and it ruined the story for me. <<less

The story is told as a history documentary about the rise of the Norton Kingdom. The story starts slow and dumpes alot of information about the characters in the first 50 or so chapters. The chapters aren't that important, but give little bit of context to the actions and trust showed between the main cast later in the book. The advancement in technologie is also done really well. The MC doesn't just create machine guns in the first year, but slowly builds up from balistas to catapults to cannons. If you like reading about the history of like the roman empire (or other great empires) then you would probably like reading this book.

I usually check reviews before reading, but the reviews for this was either "everything is terrible" or "everything is amazing" so I decided to give it a try.

There's barely any mention of the life before reincarnation. Aside from a martial art technique and some clothing designs, there was nothing else from his previous life that was mentioned or bought over as of now. So the reincarnation part is vague and not well written. If you like knowing details of logistics of battle and stuff, you will enjoy this. If you... more>> don't care about how many slaves/horses they gain from each war and how they restructured the army, there are paragraphs and paragraphs that you can skip and miss nothing. Seriously, there were some chapters where I skipped the background, only reading 10% of it and didn't miss anything in the plot.

And onto the good stuff. Yes the MC is kind of OP sometimes, but I'm happy there's a progression of plot and strategies involved instead of the 500 variation of the same "jerk hate MC, MC fights and OPs then leaves, jerk from new place hate MC, repeat". The MC is not a cultivation maniac or 1000 year virgin blockhead. There are cultivation and there are women, but nothing perverted or paragraphs of description of women/how OP the MC is. The story starts with how MC accumulates money and friends while growing stronger, then slightly shift into war strategies as he travel to homeland with friends. This is where I'm at right now, I expect to see some juicy politics and more strategies later.

Aside from the first 10-20 chapters being a bit vague/loose in explanation and paragraphs of verbose description that can be skipped, it is a good story. Good plot line with interesting MC and well translated. <<less

Really upsetting some of these reviews, almost makes me actually wonder if they read the same story... If you like politics, kingdom building, wars, then you will prob think this novel is easily in the top 5 novels on this site. If you want a pill popping MC who cultivates through all problems then this is not gonna be for you. The novel can be a bit slow
... more>>

First 40 chapters covers 10 years of his life after his bodies previous exile from his homeland just about when he took over.

in the start but really picks up after chapter 40. That being said this novel differs from some similar one in that he has not brought major amounts of technology over yet as of this reveiw. Some minor things like a design for a backpack he does do. <<less

It's good; the setting is intricate and detailed, the main character is determined and smart yet not wholly without fault as he makes mistakes but works to correct those without hesitation. If you're tired of the usual tropes like "face" and iron-clad rankings or skills that seem wholly unrelated to anything real, then this is definitely a treat.

The power structures of individuals is based on something tangible and easily discernible, so the fact that people believe those rankings to be true makes sense. The main characters use of qigong to... more>> continue his training once he hits a cap also makes sense given how well documented his love for the art prior to reincarnation was.

While he does get some annoying freebies like "dynamic vision" and his qigong abilities, the main meat of the story is NOT about the main character defeating everything like in your usual martial arts novel, rather the fact that he is strong is merely the set up for the politics and friendships that he is involved in. Had his jolly gang of hangers on not decided to join him in his journey, this story would easily lose one or two stars from me.

Romance-wise the story hasn't seen much of any development as the main character has loved and lost before the novel proper and most of the subsequent encounters are casual or end in failure. I saw someone complain about maids getting raped and I had to laugh, as the setting already explicitly encourages this; one count had over 60 illegitimate sons while the main character has 17 illegitimate siblings as well!

Overall, it really only gets going at around 50-60-ish as the amount of flashbacks before that is quite staggering, but I still recommend it. <<less

This is seriously good. It has a distinct western medieval feel to the story, with a bit of xuanhuan cultivation thrown in. The MC has deep interactions with those around him, the action/strategy is pretty good, and it doesn't focus too much on any of the reincarnation/cultivation cliche's, it is pretty obvious the author is trying to avoid them. Everything does not always go the MC's way, he occasionally goes through a few situations that aren't much worse than dying. There is obviously some plot armor, but it isn't too... more>> extreme. <<less

This story is just plain BORING!! The MC is not a reincarnated man, his morals, mindset, actions, everything is just like a man of the Middle Ages. He was supposedly an elite military man who eventually left the military and succeeded his family business and turned it into a million dollar company. None of that is shown through the character. Intellectually, he's taken advantage of by everyone he meets, from the Dean of his school to the chick he stupidly fell in love with (apparently, he's never been in love... more>> even though he was over 40 years old in the modern world).

The Dean tricks him by giving him coffee and then telling him all the important details at the last minute and pushing him out the door. I'm serious, that's the evil scheme of the Dean. As for his girlfriend, he gives her everything she wants, helps her found a business, then she leaves him and he still goes around sticking his nose in her business. F**king pathetic. <<less

The further I read the less I like it. The world building is rather good and male characters are well developed. My main criticism is that the adult female characters are nearly all in non-consent scenarios and are portrayed as unruly, spoiled or weak.

After 200 chapters this is hands down one of the best world building stories currently being translated.

This story has a horrendous (ly boring) start that seems to have made a lot of people rate this poorly. I was bored one day and worked through the first 50ish chapters, the story actually started to get good! There was a reason for the boring development, the payoff just came much later than I would have liked.

The focus of the story is on his territory development and relationships rather than the standard cliches.

He... more>> is strong but not op, his decision making is fairly rational, the side characters have depth, and the interactions seem real. <<less

Disclaimer: If you like very cliche'd XianXia novels don't this review and just skip to the book. For your mental health and my own.

Like most books on this website this story has the skeleton of a good story; unlike most stories on here it has more than that. The sad fact is, that instead of skin, organs, muscles, etc. It is like all that got partially digested and we are reading the end product. I found it easy to find pieces of the story that are complete and amazing. I... more>> also, find sludge that I can't make heads or tails of. At the very least when you start reading it isn't fully digested.

Take the exposition for example, It starts off amazing in the first chapter. The story reeks of fantasy from the word 'go'; it really got me hooked. It wasn't poorly written or translated. The quality of the translation doesn't drop, but when I got to chapter 8 and the MC had his first flash back it was incredibly frustrating. The author (s) showed that they could create an entire world without breaking the cardinal rule of exposition, NO f**kING FLASHBACKS. (Yes there are ways to do it well, these guys did it in the worst way possible.) Seeing what this author can do made me want to read more and see if it improved. It did not, there were simply more and more flashbacks. It was like the author (s) were just f**king with us the whole time; seeing what they could get away with. ''Well now that we have proven that we can write well and completely lets not.'' Says the first author '' What a splendid idea.'' Says the second. This leads us to the first love interest.

She is the worst kind of person, and both the author, and by extension, the MC have nothing against her.

The relationship between the two is incredibly one-sided, and everyone just seems to blame the MC, in some small margin, for their break-up. He has done nothing but give, and the love interest has done nothing but take.

The only reason you should read this book is if you are an aspiring novelist, and you want clear cut examples of good and bad exposition.

Someone has literally taken a dump on anything resembling good writing and posted it to the internet. I know very well that even sh*t stains can pass off as great writing in this community. In summary this is an objectively bad book that I know many of you who are reading this will love. I am confident to say that this is objectively bad, because two buildings can be just as beautiful as each other, but if one has a rotten foundation it is worse. As soon as someone stands in the wrong spot the whole building is coming down, and for this book that spot is chapter 8 and beyond.

(P.S. I refuse to torture myself with reading more, and yes I know how much that hurts my integrity.) <<less

One of my current favourite novels to read, the Tales of the Reincarnated Lord has a lot of aspects that make me want to continue reading - the kingdom building, the characters (particularly the MC), the story and the potential for further development on all of the previously mentioned aspects. I would definitely recommend this novel to everyone and hope that the slow start (which I honestly did not mind/could not tell) does not bother you.

Its a good novel, just not good for the categories it says it is. The whole thing feels like a slice of life story as their is no tension or pressure on the main character, he is OP and won't get anything wrong. The only thing holding him back is his battle force rank of iron 3 but considering he is considered silver undefeatable, defeats golds like they are nothing and that he has killed a sword master (or something like that) who are considered the tops on the... more>> continent by chapter 70, he is definitely OP.

Bad points - Terrible fight scenes. As in every single fight scene so far feels like a summary so far, no tension at all and no fight has lasted more than 1 paragraph, if not two. They are so short and so simple, even for people who are considered OP since the author for some reason doesn't want to build up any tension whatsoever.

- Character progression. The characters don't change at all and even worse, there is so many of them and yet there is no distinction to them. Let me explain. The main character, I have no idea what he looks like, might be mentioned early on but I already forgot at this point and I know he a person from earth who is quite smart. The main characters best friend charade, I know he is fat and good with money. His other good friend, I know he uses darkness attribute and that he is shameless. And lets not talk about the 40+ characters we have been introduced to so far, barely any description or distinction between them.

- MC is like a mary sure, everyone loves him at first sight and wants to follow him despite not knowing him at all.

Good points- Very funny, especially the first 10s of chapters. Made me chuckle
- Interesting world build
- Plots dont repeat AT ALL. Everything feels very new.

Overall- I gave this a 3 since it is a good novel, just under the wrong categories. Take off martial arts, action and xuanhuan. The rest of the categories represents this novel so much better and if I had gone into the novel seeing those tags, I would rate it 4-5 as it is awesome.

But I'm dropping it now as I want some tension, some action, some cultivation, some character progression and this novel does not offer that. <<less

For one, as everyone has already mentioned, just gloss through the first 40-50 chapters. Those are just info dumps. Some of the points in those chapters might be well made but they don't require a deep reading.

The author takes the info dumping to another level and has it in every other chapter. These many horses, slaves, money etc etc are put in excruciating details. Not to mention, the amount of people and their names, after sometime you will get confused as to who is silver ranked, who is gold, who... more>> is mercenary or knight.

So why the rating 4 you ask? Well story telling. I love my sides of fast paced xianxia stories but many of them rely on a single plot line to pull things. Here war seem to be the focal point for sure but it is intricately woven into the story. Why are there these many wars is explained well.

That said, if you don't like political intrigue and rather expecting a cultivation themed novel then you are in for a disappointment. The story is slow and there are no blood rush moments of defeating someone superior using a low cultivation. If your expectation is that, skip it. <<less

This is one of those stories that improve the more you read to the point of wanting more, especially if you like themes like wars, medieval age, knights, violence, kingdom building, nobles, and more. I couldn't stop reading it all these week until I finished all translated chapters.

This novel start slow but gets much better after chapters 30-50 more or less I don't remember well.

What I like about this novel is that the MC is strong, but it is shown or at least it is said how it becomes... more>> strong and it is create a solid background for the MC and its relationships that allow the story to flow more natural and easy to to accept.

The MC is like an old man in the body of a young adult, reason of his bland personality and lack of ambitions in the beginning of the story but changes little by little by the force of the circumstances of his family, friends and enemies.

what I find lacking, it's the personalities of the women that appears in the story being only support characters only or disappointing characters lacking in character or brains o maybe both, they don't play an important role in the history and I only remember them because there are few women with names in the history, but most of them are weak and unimportant in the history to the point that I had read, with one or two exceptions maybe. <<less

Despite somewhat confusing first chapters and LONG flashbacks in the beginning, this is one of the best novels I have read. I recommend it to all fans of medieval politicking, diplomacy, combat and war and cultivation.

I love that MC is not suddenly modernizing everything with his modern knowledge but he used his experiences to improve Lorist´s previous character and to overcome his cultivation problems.

MC is quite strong but not absurdly overpowered. This novel also has excellent world building and kingdom (well, barony) building and management, interesting military tactics/strategies and... more>> entertaining action and battles.

Another important point in favor of this novel is its very good translation. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the chapters. <<less

Man I'm so glad I read this novel I almost got scared away by some of the reviews that said it slow and boring. Now don't get me wrong this is a novel that really takes its time setting up the world and MC, but by no means is it boring this novel kept me engaged the whole way it was awesome. The MC is really what I love about this story hes not a push over or an asshole hes op but had to work for all of it... more>> and it doesnt go overboard with it.

This novel is good, but it also has large (ish) issues...

The first part of the novel was quite interesting but was constantly interrupted by annoying flashbacks that they could've integrated and compressed better.

After that is the second part of the story which is the journey...

... more>> Now, this was kind of boring and drawn out but it had it's moments, however...

In the third part, after they've arrived, at first it is interesting to see how he deals with things, but as the story progresses it becomes kind of repetative...

Now, it isn't bad, its just really boring because there are whole chapters dedicated to dialogue.

As in chapters that have nothing else but 100% dialogue and because of this, the story pretty much slowed to a crawl, not to mention that the MC has seemingly no ambitions at all other than to develop his territory, which, coupled with the dialogue chapters makes this 3rd part rather bland and boring.

I'm giving it 3 stars because when the MC isn't talking the whole chapter and there is action it is actually quite good. <<less

Amazing. The character is strong, but not too OP. I also like the fact that there are some politics involved, but it is not overly annoying and most things are explained in an easy understand manner on things like strategy and things that usually go behind the scenes. I also like the fact that the character is a capable and realistic in the way he runs things, but there is not a convenient time-skip where everything is solved.

Reviewed at c.131, rated 4.

Reading Tales of Reincarnated Lord brought me back to the eras of Robin Hood and Ivanhoe. Although, the author's storytelling was obviously not as solid as those of classic novelist's, but it was clearly different compared to what commonly found among translated Chinese webnovels.

It told the story of an earthling who was reborn in the body of an estranged young noble. The beginning of the novel talked about his escapades and relationships in a city of freedom. Devoid of tricky family entanglements, he gathered wealth and... more>> reputation for himself by making use of his earth knowledge and the strength he had gained in this world. Then some messengers arrived and he suddenly found himself as an inheritor of a faraway land. There came the main plot: how will he develop the land that has long been broken up by wars and corrupt nobles? The various knowledges he brought from earth was not enough. He also had to have good strategies and reliable supporters, joined hands with dubious lords, while looking for ways to boost his own strength at the same time. Also flirted and made love with beauties on the side.

Rather than saying the main theme is Domestic Affairs/Kingdom Development, I feel it closer to biography of a lord instead.... well, that said, the title says it all. What it does not tell is that the content often talked about unnecessary details and confusing noble relationship. Knowing the landscape of a city might be good for readers; but the amount of each army provision? The exact number of slaves doing this or that? Those kind of chapters appeared here and there, and were recipes for good night sleep.... <<less

Okay this was a favorite story of mine but I gave up... MC really went down the amoral path.. there at the end it was all about control murder and power.

Still 200 chapters of a decent story so I would recommend this story but it got dark after awhile.. the comedy is all early in the story..

I gave it a good rating because it really was a great story...i just dont like stories that get twisted all dark... once I started keeping track about the MCs crimes I realized how... more>> horrible a human being they became and so I stopped wanting to hear the story. <<less
