Having a rough life growing up, Wang Tong had numerous dreams of living a better life. However, his alcoholic foster father sells him off as a space settler of the distant planet Norton for some pocket change. Soon after his arrival, the Zergs overran the planet and obliterated its defenses in a matter of minutes. What awaited Tong on Norton was more than just an unbearable environment – its gravity alone was five-times stronger than earth – there were also swarms of bugs, constant hunger, thirst, and desolation.

While he lives a year of total carnage and survival, humanity’s Confederation eventually overcomes the Zergs on Norton and the powerful survivor Wang Tong is given a recommendation to a once famous, but now dying military academy where he begins his life anew.

I didn't know why this series is rated so low.

Compared to the authors other series, it's not hugely inferior and even follows similar plot progression. Yet, still earns a vastly lower score compared to its related works.

I believe this is due to the sh*tty plot description. The whole setting suggest a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters and a man's struggle to survive at the brink of extinction. When really the storyline follows the school life of an underdog character's struggle to reach the top in a world filled... more>> with elite clans and strong young masters. Which follows the authors usual MO of the low-key MC who builds his strength with a hidden identity as he gradually fights to achieve his goals.

The role of the monsters doesn't even play much of a pivotal part within the story until much later and is more centred around character progression. The sh*tty qidan art doesn't help this misconception either. Shown by the striking contrast between cover arts of the authors series and this.... TT0TT

The Norton arc only last a brief period of the story and introduces the MC (his naive, inexperienced, gonna get himself killed character) and lays down the setting for the old man and the mc's growth as he finds his aim in life. The plot then leads to a school life scenario with strength building in a battle/academic school.

I find this series overall very enjoyable, wouldn't expect less from this author. Don't be scared of the low score, people come expecting gritty apocalypse world yet find light hearted school life with a bunch of naive kids (although they do grow in the future). <<less

Didn't have high expectations going into this, but was still disappointed anyway.

MC is an orphan adopted by "mysterious old guy" who teaches him some cultivation techniques and then sends him off to a remote planet full of monsters. MC survives this and discover another mysterious old man in one of the magic crystals that his adopter gave him. The new mysterious old man teaches him more powerful OP techniques and the rest you can probably predict.

The MC is careless and impulsive. On multiple occasions he gets severely wounded because he... more>> started celebrating before checking that the monster is dead, with the obvious consequence that the monster attacks him while he's celebrating. This happens repeatedly.

On another occasion the MC brings his robot out with him and they get ambushed by monsters. The robot tells the MC to run away but the MC refuses and runs back in to save his robot. The MC then gets surrounded by monsters and was about to die until his robot saves him... so he runs away and the robot dies anyway. Except he saves the "mainframe" (I guess the brains of the robot?) of the robot so actually it's okay. I guess the MC can just get away with doing whatever impulsive things he wants and the author even explicitly encourages this as being "manly".

And then after he returns to Earth the robot is never mentioned again. Seems weird that this robot that was the only companion of the MC for over a year and whom the MC risked his life to save would not be even mentioned after the MC returns to Earth.

MC then goes back to Earth and enrolls in a school and wins fights in virtual reality games. At this point, I couldn't help but roll my eyes. Apparently because one very famous and beautiful female student joined the school, all the other people want to go to the school as well? That's like saying if Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg (after they became famous) goes to a sh*tty university then everyone else will go enrol at that university. Makes the same amount of sense.

The boys in the classroom teemed with earnest enthusiasm in their study after Ma Xiaoru's arrival and all of them wanted to prove themselves in front of her. Inspired by his classmates, Wang Tong decided to study harder as well; after all, his grade was the lowest even in the F class.

This literally never happens IRL. What kind of world do you live in where the mere presence of a beautiful girl can motivate ALL the slackers to study? Pretty unbelievable.

Dropped. <<less

The story is a bit of a fraud: first it shows really interesting survival on a frontier planet during war with Bugs - but after that it completely switches to a school type story with virtual gaming battles, school competitions and immature attempts at romance.

Not a bad novel per say, but wow.... just wow....I feel really cheated by that synopsis. I was expecting some sort of Space Troopers-esk survival/colonization/cultivation plot for the most part of the story and then the author pulls a switch on us and we end up with some sh*tty school-life/virtual gaming bullsh*t and some sh*tty romance to top it all off.

Lesson of the day: carefully read the tags genres before you randomly start a novel, only to end up in dissapointment

First of all I must say that it's currant rating of 3.4/5 is pretty much what it deserves.

If you want an incredible story likely to become your favorite, what you would describe as a masterpiece, this novel is not for you. I will try to list what the some features in as a nuanced way as I can see them, good or bad.

  • The main weakness: This novel has a major weakness: it is unbelievable. Not in the sense that it is awesome, but in the sense that you don't believe it. This makes the story more fantastic than futuristic. This touches on a couple of aspects:
    - The MC is too talented in too many things. Imagine a very talented chef which is a genius chess player because you have to be smart to be a chef, a great musician because he likes music, a great swimmer because he became muscled cooking, and so on. The MC does the something similar. It doesn't ruin everything, but it does makes the MC less plausible and more like an MC.
    - The universe is a futuristic intergalactic setting. But apart from the important or powerful people, the rest are "the crowd". It just makes the universe seem extremely empty, a waste as it could just have been earth with futuristic technology and it wouldn't change much. To give an idea, imagine going into the street and seeing only people you know. The billions of other people existing don't seem to exist.
    With this out of the way, I will get to be more objective about the better aspects of the story.
  • Plot: It draws you in. The plot is average. It has competitions, training and combat, in true Xuanhuan fashion. But the author does manage to hook you and make you forget the numbers of chapters you've already read.
  • Romance:The romance is one of the strong points of this story (this might just be personal taste, I guess). We see a romance that doesn't go into the harem and is believable, reminding me of Coiling Dragon. People actually have emotions other than rage, anger, humiliation, a thirst for strength.... (Too many novels really give the impression emotions are like a checklist, a plot justifier). Here we actually have have more humane people.
  • Enemy: The most disappointing thing for me were the Zergs mentioned in the synopsis. I was hoping for an interesting, challenging enemy that threatens humanity. They are not. They are just bugs, an enemy like any other which at best can be said to give up a good fight for the MC. Then again, they do play a rather minor role in the plot (so far) (which is part of my disappointment).
  • MC: The MC actually seems to evolve (I read Keklel's review which gives a negative if not inaccurate portrayal of the MC, but only up to c20). It actually gives a better than average coming of age story that makes a boy mature into an adult. I found this aspect enjoyable.
    The MC isn't without a fault however: his actions are sometimes justified weirdly (he is optimist=>he doesn't worry about that), but that is pretty much the only thing.
  • The pacing of the story is unique. Sometimes an ellipse happens out of nowhere or an event is here without us expecting it. Some would say unpredictable while others would say chaotic.
I hope this will have been of use. This was my first review even though I have read a... more>> fair number of novels. I will remind everyone that this is my nuanced and subjective opinion. <<less

I'm starting to get addicted to this great western-feel novel, packed with actions and youth adventures.. totally a perfect novel for newbies and veteran who are tired of common xianxia...

Totally unlike the other CN which focus on boring cultivation building where they make weapons, pills, and practices arts which goes on without excitement..

I totally don't have any dissatisfaction about this novel, the way the MC moves and reacts are on the realm reasonable..

Just try it guys and you'll love it.

To be frank, I certainly love the author's writings. Its like tempest of the Stellar wind. This novel is definitely under rated. Well, the majority of the plot is clearly school life, then compete with other schools. The alien setting at the beginning and the teacher old man is there to give an op flavor to our MC. This is worth reading over, unless you are so specially specially concerned of every smallest flaws and details that would not make you enjoy the novels. But nevertheless, your own review is... more>> the best review, so try reading it first. <<less

It's an amazing story.

It seems very unique, it's just that the description on this site is sh*t.

The TL is not the greatest, and there are lots of forgotten parts, but as long as you ignore them the story is great.

... more>> I'm going to address the other reviews now:

Valor is correct, this page does not accurately describe the story so far. There is no harem, and the synopsis is just an outline of the first arc at most.

Okuri is generally correct, and I agree with their opinion.

Simsi is kind of correct as well, but what do you expect? This story is based on a 16yr old kid, not a soldier. The story isn't going to be him living alone on a planet for hundreds of chapters. I like the romance, we finally got somewhere in the past few chapters.

The first half of keks review is accurate, because it's a fantasy story and Chinese at that. The robot is mentioned a bit, he's still trying to revive it. As for the last point, I see where they're coming from, but it's covered a bit more later when she leaves that class and they start slacking again. They were just trying to show off. Also fighting giant mutating bugs isn't something that happen IRL that's why it's fantasy.

Ogd's review is good.

And pork buns review I covered in the beginning. This page is setup sh*t. <<less

Pretty dumb novel, I read halfway and think is this story worth it? And read the ending, and nope its trash.

Pretty much full of the mainstream storyline of 90% of china webnovel, fight, train stronger, meet enemy, train again, be stronger, meet stronger enemy, loop till you become god. What you can expect for that summary, well seriously nothing, the fight is full of normal bs china webnovel, the plot is full of plot armor, and the secondary character is not that likeable in the first place. Some scene make... more>> you feel emotional though, like hmmm oh yeah 1 or 2 in 300 chapter.

The author keep repeating the opness of the character and how almost nobody really know it, like all people is idiot. I cant stand with this kind of 'serious' story with no serious dedication of missing commons sense, so many time the MC identity secret almost revealed but ops nope, the MC got plot armor, f**k it, we know his 'secret' identity not revealed until he is strong enough, if not he already died and the story end, stop with the "what if" situation. My entire point is toooooo many loophole and the author is kind of stupid, if not the story or the character is. Dont really recommend this novel, I got it if its comedy but this novel is not! To much loophole you cant see it with seriousness again, only rage inducing story.

Why not 1? Well I it should be 1 if not because of some emotional scene which only a man can understand, seriously though 1, 5 star is maybe the score. Read it just if you dont have anything better to do, not a really good story, but at least you can spend time reading this. <<less

It's a decent choice for when you have nothing, and I mean nothing, better to do, but there are plotholes everywhere. The author never sticks with one characterization of his characters, and is prone to saying one thing but pretending it never happened later. Also, it reeks of nationalism but has a gaping lack of logic and common sense. Read only if extremely bored.

Just read the 1St 5 chapters and I have to admit it's taken a new turn on Xuanhuan. A new direction I have not seen in a bit and only then in American novels some Japanese as well.

If you want a story that mixes cultivation with bio-suits and not Mech's then this is the story for you! The premis of this story is that humans have entered a new era and have begone to expand outward to other inhabitable planets. During a war against a super adaptive somewhat hive minded... more>> sentient race, humans developed 'METAL' Bio-Suits that use genes (bloodlines) to adapt a form that allows tailored combat forms. No idea how this works yet...

The suits are also connected to the Sea of consciousness (given a somewhat different name but ultimately the same) which is an individuals ability that doesn't have to rely on the suit itself. One can have poor genes and have a METAL suit but cannot have a METAL suit without opening the sea of consciousness.

Like S.W's other novels the MC encounters great fortunes and gains the potential to become great. In just 5 chapters I can tell you right now that it has so far been more action packed then T.S.W and B.F as far as my reading is. I'm caught up on the first and 20 chapters behind the later.

I've only read 3 out of the 4 books (available on NU) by this author and he/she is quickly ranking up there with I.E.T and Er Gen IMO. This isn't because of the novels themselves per se but the uniqueness and change of setting & foundation from novel to novel.

It's a great read so far, the 1St chapter is roughly 2 chapters long and the story kicks off on the 2nd chapter and by kick off I mean a story of survival! <<less

Fisrt off idk who the main girl is yet since there's been 3 stunning beauties who the MC can't stop drooling over as soon as they appear.

second it just feels forced. We know the MC is not smart or calm and collected as a commander needs to be as shown in his impulsiveness during the Zerg arc. And we know the only thing he has going for him is his OP strength but instead of using it the author decides that nope he needs to be a commander.

The only reason I can think of for this bs beside the weak excuse the author gave of "its easier and pays more" is that he needs to force tension and make the MC appear like trash because that's the only way Chinese authors know how to wright a novel ig.

It makes the novel feel like it has no direction to me.

Make MC op<hides strength<forces MC to appear like trash<shows everyone he's not trash after chapter of abuse.

Finally theres just better stuff to read out there. <<less

If you liked the author's other novels, then you'll like this one.

Don't expect anything super different. It's just got more of an Undefeated God of War vibe (this dude's much smarter though).

The girls aren't annoying, although the romance is unclear.

Interesting world. I think the author has something against bugs lol

MC's OP and kinda has cheats. There's also the cliche of mysterious old dude raising him.

I'd say that the hype in this novel is great though.

MC's friends are pretty cool too.

I don't remember school life, virtual reality, romance, and possibly harem being on the genre and tags. I wanted to read this story because the synopsis said robots and planet overrun by monsters. Hell, I was searching for a story with mechs but instead I got whatever tempest is. I'm not saying it's a bad story. It's just not the story the synopsis, genre and tags say it is.

This is a very exciting book. Essentially combining Wuxia cultivation concept with futuristic sci-fi technology. The great thing is that it isn't normal wuxia cultivation where people spend years at a time isolated to gather energy. It also is some sci-fi novel all about mechs and robotics and crap. Combining the best parts of wuxia matial arts and sci-fi technology, it managed a perfect balance between the two that I never thought would happen so perfectly.

This novel at it best is a 2 Star. The beginning of the novel is where the story is at its best and from the middle of academy arc quality drops. As for the main tournament arc the author doesn’t even know how to distribute powers to each character.

Romance in this novel is fukimg aweful. It’s a mystery how one write romance this terrible without getting arrested. Romance is too forced and is too stupid, man jumps from Samantha to Mu girl like he jumping puddles of water not to get some J’S wet.

Fights in this novel is where is at its worst. In this novel plot arms doesn’t matter, MC basically always find the way to win because he’s not been giving his best and is always like little more powerful than his opponent. Author makes each new renown character seem so powerful and logically MC shouldn’t be able to beat them but f**k what do u know he’s actually slightly stronger than them it’s just that he didn’t show it.

Man read this novel if u just wanna know how low this novel will get <<less

i was expecting starship troopers meets firefly with a little enders game and instead we get a day in the life of a hidden op MC.... at school. I was braced to read more about all the mecha (which I don't like) and was surprised to find none. so far the METAL suits seem to be some kind of battle armor but even the basic suits are not described clearly at all. the romance is not exactly a harem though it does seem like every beautiful girl out there falls... more>> for him, giving us some annoyingly angsty chapters (very shoujo).

if you're reading this because it's school life, there are much better school life novels out there and after holding on through 100 chapters this novel still hasn't managed to hook me.

One of the best novel out there reading it made it my one of the novel I wanted to read daily it has it's own unique vibe which makes me wanna read more never did I enjoy a novel such as this since good novel like this rarely appear such as my FIRST impression on this novel after chapter 200+.

Like the saying goes nothing good last this novel is a good example. The unique theme and plot seems to be different than your average novel it was not dull and... more>> simply worth reading gives you the excitement of wanting to know what will happen next until I read up to chapter 200+

it mind sound norm to others but a good novel for me is

  1. Unique MC, overbearing, humble at time and loves to remain low key and never shows off his OPness.
  2. The relationship of the characters must be unique there is friendship, rivalry and even epic cliche romance.
  3. Love if started must stick to it and never abandon struggle for LOVE fight for LOVE after all LOVE conquers all.
  4. Plot is epic it is when you can ask, what is a universe? the mobs are epic it may look that it has been recycle but that does not matter as long as it can blend with the flow
  5. Mysteries all over, Mysterious individual, organization and so on. In other words epic background story which make you wanna think what well happen in the future as you read this.
Yup this was how I see this novel after reading up to chapter 200+ where

Spoiler

MC suddenly became your average MC like other MC coward and moronic and dumb.

Support character went hey wire all out of nowhere left one after another like nothing happens.

LOVE for crying it out loud I was looking towards the unique relationship between principal and student but the aho author made them break up with the MOST EPIC LAME B*LLSH*T excuse ever made in this world and after all the MC struggle for the girl and he was like sent just a simple text that they need to break up! now that is what I can B*LLSH*T!

Recycle Plot yeah recycle everything starts from zero... what happen no idea!? ask the author what did I read 200 chapters of awesomeness it's like eating a good food and after a week you are given the same food which is already a week old.

Mystery died so drop it to stop my self from further being annoyed!

[collapse]

Like I said it is a good novel but don't expect much after chapter 200 since it became rather dull and reading it is very painful at least for me that is.

I REPEAT there is NO HAREM on this novel NO HAREM NO HAREM NO HAREM! important things must be mentioned 3 times. There was an epic romance up to chapter 200 but that's it. If this was harem I already drop and trash this novel to kingdom come since if this novel is harem then this is as good as trash! <<less
