As previously mentioned in the other review, its a very Ttrpg inspired adventure story.

While there is an overarching plot, primarily the story functions in a mystery of the week style, breadcrumbing along towards the overarching goal.

Personally I dont mind the lack of additional "player" characters, as with each new summon a "role" in the party is filled with a new personality archtype.

May not be everyones cup of tea, but the writing style makes it quiet easy to pick up and put down, without losing track of where you are narratively... more>> while waiting for additional chapters. <<less

Overall, a pretty enjoyable read so far, I would recommend it to people who enjoy regression/tower climbing novels.

One thing to take note of is that this novel is basically a lot of pre-existing ideas/tropes under a fresh coat of paint, the setting is basically a D&D/TTRPG inspired version of the ‘tower’ that shows up in so many Korean novels, instead of climbing up different floors, characters go on “adventures” which are a sort of isolated mini plot completely separate from the overarching story, they’re kind of like D&D modules. The... more>> MC’s class is “shadow summoner” which is basically a reskinned necromancer. A lot of the ideas that make up this novel are in a similar vein, twists on pre-existing ideas, which isn’t to say it’s not enjoyable, but more of a “if you’re fed up with these tropes this will quickly become a bit tiring”.

Another thing to keep in mind is that there’s a unique element of the setting that gives the MC a massive advantage, even beyond his pre-existing “meta-knowledge”, I won’t say what it is, however it pretty much guarantees that nobody from earth will be able to rival the MC in the slightest. If you like overpowered MC’s then this is probably fine, but at least for me, it takes away a lot of suspense. As is common with stories like this, it focuses super heavily on the MC and their actions, leaving the world and side characters to feel under developed, as of chapter 49, I have yet to see a single character who sticks around for more than a handful of chapters.

Overall, this is a story that has a unique take on the Korean “tower” novels that plays a little too heavily into the tropes associated with that type of novel to properly explore that uniqueness. The “tower” setting is uniquely suited for a MC-centric approach, where only the things directly around the MC matter, after all, there’s no reason to describe the 20th floor of the tower when the MC has just reached the 5th. By making things more “open-world” and keeping the MC focused worldview it doesn’t really feel all that different. Still a fairly enjoyable read if you can tolerate the lack of characters, but it definitely could’ve been a bit better. <<less
