The Godsfall Chronicles

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The nuclear holocaust which caused the collapse of the Old Times on Earth should have wiped out all human life on the planet. Yes, the gods set up their beautiful Elysiums to provide sanctuaries for their chosen, but by all rights everyone outside the elysian lands should’ve perished long ago. Yet somehow, human life still managed to persist, even in the deadly, mutant-infested wastelands.

Cloudhawk was a young scavenger who dreamed of being as free as the hawks in the skies, yet seemed destined to live out his life scrounging for scraps in the wasteland ruins. Fate, however, is ever-fickle. A chance meeting with a ragtag group of mercenaries changed the trajectory of his life, bringing him into a world with mutants and metahumans, demonhunters and godslayers, and even gods and demons. Cloudhawk would find his own place in a world that was far greater than he had imagined, find his own path between the zealous light of Sumeru and the whispering darkness of the Abyss… and one day, he would find that even gods may fall.

One of the best novels I've read and probably top 3 in wuxiaworld right now with one of the best translations around. It has a great plot that keeps you hooked, specially starting from end of book 1 onwards. The MC isn't crazy OP and powers up slowly, with interesting side characters, each one with their different story and, so far, with their own importance to the plot, they don't get ditched as soon as the arc ends.

It has a mature and well thought out plot that really differentiates this... more>> novel from the typical op MC, infinite harem, you-kill-my-dog-I-kill-your-whole-country CN novel. <<less

is a really good novel so far, the MC is not your usual shameless arrogant bastard that thinks he/she is entitled to everything above the land just because he has a mystical treasure/cheat (A.K.A. Not a wish fulfillment story), it has a proper flow and even the MC plot armor only works to barely save his life but not to protect him from having the crap beaten out of him. Something that on my personal opinion is quite refreshing since 90% of the usual chinese WN the MC becomes practically... more>> untouchable after getting his/her plot armor, the secondary characters feels more real than other novels so far, the world building is just right, neither too much or too little with no monologues so far, and zero purple prose something I am really thankful for. <<less

Think 'Mad Max' meets 'Desert Punk' meets 'Fallout' meets 'Forty Melleniums of Cultivation' meets 'Monarch of Evernight' at a party and they make a strange baby named 'The Godfall Chronicles'. It is freaking awesome so far, but it is still early.

The setting is post-apocalyptic New York City where the atlantic ocean has desertified. The MC is a 14-15 year old boy who has to hussle every day scavanging through the ruins of New York City just to eat. One day the MC is recruited by a mercenary band to do... more>> a somewhat dangerous job, and so the adventure begins. <<less

This novel is a rarity. It is not perfect, it has it's flaws, but this is a book, a real book that will make you cry, smile, develop feelings for a lot of characters and just have the time of your life. A real rarity among the sea of webnovels that pollute this web with garbage. For the pros and con's of this novel:

Positives:

  1. Real characters. EVERYONE is grey. From the dude who kills millions to the little slaves, everyone has their feelings, their motives, their ambitions and their dreams. No one just to bad things because their bad, and even the most evil tyrant can (and trust me, will) make you feel sympathy for him. People are not perfect, and they are not defined by a trait like most novels. The most intelligent people make mistakes. The strongest one can lose. The weakest and poorest can rise. Everything can happen, and everyone has a say in the world.
  2. Real story. Everything is connected, everything has a reason and the plot is really intriguing. You know that book or manga or anime where you are just so invested in the world and characters that you devour everything that is said because it WILL be relevant at some point? This is that. Stuff happens at every chapter from the first to the last that shows that the author had everything planned from the start. That is the mark of a great author
  3. The epic. Oh my god. It's not always that moment where you feel goosebumps and make you so excited that you just feel like a kid at a candy store. But when they came, it's priceless.
  4. The main character. One of my absolute favorite in all books, even outside of webnovels. He just feels so real. He starts in the lowest drags of the world, but step by step he rises. He gets smarter, wiser, stronger then everyone, but he is never perfect. Even if it costs everything and he knows he shouldn't he fights for those he love, because that's just who he is. He will make laugh, cry, and curse all the world for what it made him do, but that's the charm of the story.
The negatives:

  1. The start of the novel can be boring to some. I loved it, but I understand the distrust that some people can harbor that the novel will eventually get better. But trust me, it get's AMAZING.
  2. A few times stuff happens that it shouldn't. That is literally the only reason this novel is not five stars to me. Really rarely, one or another character will do stuff that it's not in line with themselfs, and you can see that it is for the sake of the story going in the direction the author wants. Its rare, sure, and probably the only reason I'm being this harsh on the novel is because of the sky high estime that I think of it, but still, it's something I really don't like on novels.
That's it, all and all, ABSOLUTE recommend this masterpiece to anyone unless you are just looking for some faceslapping every chapter, but to me at least, the best book is the book that makes you feel the most, and this one is really amazing in that regard.

Maybe this is a good novel, but I find reading it a heavy chore and I can't be bothered after about 100 chapters. This novel isn't bad compared to trash tier cultivation novels that follow the same old repeated plots. The plot and world building is unique. But the general vibe of the novel just doesn't sit well with me and I find it not very appealing.

  1. The author doesn't have a very good grasp of story pacing and telling a good story. The MC constantly finds himself in life or death situations with no pause in between. Slowly building up a mini-arc of 20-30 chaps to a finale of a life or death battle is fine. Reading 30 chapters of the MC constantly in life or death situations and going from one crisis to another is just exhausting to read. And this happens constantly. Everybody wants to kill the MC, betray him, capture him, etc. There's also very little of an over-arcing story, just the MC being chased by people everywhere he goes.
  2. The author leans on 'betrayal' as a way of generating plot. The MC goes to a survivor base, but some people in there betray him and try to kill him. MC meets some new people, but gets betrayed by one or two people and he has to fight for his life. Etc.
  3. Fight scenes sort of don't make sense and the MC's power growth also doesn't make sense. It goes from 5mph to 100mph really fast. The MC used to be a weak scrub with zero powers, but he somehow is fighting the leaders of survivor bases in 2 months time. However, theres are lot of fights, constantly. So it makes even less sense because it all kind of melds together in a puddle in your mind and nothing stands out.
  4. Characters are also very inconsistent. I can't tell if some people are good or bad or both. The MC doesn't have a lot of personality, only that he is an unkillable cockroach.

I'll be brief.

Plot wise, it is interesting. Translation is good but the flow of the story sucks.

The MC Cloudhawk is like a plague to good side characters wherein they die after 3-5 chapters after they are introduced. We can all accept that because there is "tragedy" tag in it but honestly this thing has become a routine to this novel that at some point you get tired of it.

... more>> Too much foreshadowing and conspiracy, but less story development.

The plot armor is so strong in this novel. Author keeps telling us (readers) that the MC is so weak yet he keeps getting him involved in powerful enemies that you might wonder if he's a masochist.

In this story, the action scenes are bullsh*t because the MC can only handle the goons and then he keeps getting captured or beaten up by their boss but somehow, they wont kill him ang then he gets teleported by his OP stone relic ang gets stronger. <<less

The writing skills are top notch. The pacing, plot, and everything are truly great. However, the story and world are depressing with no light spots. There is no break in the story for lighter moments, which is neccessary in darker novels. It truly is print quality, but I can't keep reading it because of that one problem. It's too overwhelmingly depressing.

I find the story summary to be like a greek/roman mythology scenario which is my fab. Hero I presume will be a semi dark/light character which is interesting. I will put this jo el in my to read list in the future need to wait for the translators to bulk up the chapters.

So far okay read to me. Like most Chinese novels the MC gets overpowered very quickly._.

The MC has his own talent of sensing danger, isn't arrogant [which is a difference for most Chinese novels :3] is smart, cunning and so on.

I like how it seems realistic [nice descriptions of stuff and MC will have more than "1" person stronger than him] and has no repeat of things or 2-d characters, but the most annoying thing I find is how....... more>>
Spoiler

the MC finds a jewel [like other novels] and will get op fast, like now the MC is a one of a kind born in the wasteland special type of person._. hopefully he doesn't become arrogant later on

Lemme just put this out here, the novel is actually good. Frankly, it's like a xinxia shounen set in a post apocalyptic world mixed with fantasy elements. Binge read the novel for the last three days, and damn does it get good.

The MC doesn't suddenly gains a power up but slowly accumulates it through painful experiences. Expect a lot of tragedies happening around the MC wherein he is powerless to stop it.

I've read a few reviews complaining about thicc plot armor but if you read further, the author has a... more>> good explanation on 'some' of it.

Spoiler

Most of the struggles and obstacles he faces are actually set up by someone. This is a part of the novel that irritates me a little.

[collapse]

Beware though, it should have the unreliable narrator tag. There a few discrepancies that you'd notice like the power levels.

Overall, it's a good read with some exciting moments. I'd advise to read it while expecting tragedy to happen just around the corner so won't be disappointed that much. <<less

Some would describe the MC naive and humble I shall could it igngborant, fool and oportunist with sharp sense. I hate that the author uses the word "almost" for everything almost miraculus, almost lucky, almost death, como cant he use other word by a hairs breath, it down plays what happend like he would have survive but the author made the situation happen leaving the MC with no acomplishment. For him being this foolish after killing someone and seeing the world it's nonsencical its not like his morals are being... more>> test they just come and go some are applicable then not.

I'll say this right now, I've never liked apocalypse novels and I don't know if I ever will, but this novel, The Godsfall Chronicles, gives me a tingling in all the right places.

First we start with the MC. Cloudhawk, a hopefull and clever scavenger who's one and only hope is to have control over his own life and never have to 'scavenge'. You can really see this ravenous hunger for control that he has throughout the translated chapters of this book. They affect his actions and make him act in... more>> certain ways he usually wouldn't. This by itself is really cool as he doesn't have one of the standard MC harworking, earnest arrogant attitudes nor does he have the pervy or scammer archetype. Its really interesting seeing his slightly more honest and kindof naive personality clashe with the wastelands, and even his personality is affected due to this clash.

When it comes to action, this novel is also really enjoyable as well. Although this MC is one that has his fair share of luck, he also has to think through thing and knows fairly well how to be the most effective even though hes pretty weak. Its quite interesting/funny when you see him struggle to kill one mutant with all his strength and wits just to have the Diggers (which are a faction in the wastelands) mow through a bunch of higher level mutants with ease and find him pretty much halfdead and be like "wow look boys, this little f*cker survived"

If you're looking for a story where the MC goes from 0 to 100 in like three chapters though, you've come to the wrong place because although the MC gets his lucky chance only a couple chapters in, you can only see it affect him very slowly and doesn't start to really shine for a while. Also when it come to cultivation/strength gaining its not very unique but is still quite interesting.

  • Spoiler

    Some people in the wastelands have a chance to awaken one or mote mutagens in their body. Some of the mutagens seen so far are Strength, agility, healing, and control. These aren't the only powers as we've kinda been hinted that their is more stuff to come. Some of them are divine weapon things that a certain kind of people weild and also, the MC is given this kind of basic body training method which makes him very tired but is suposedly supposed to help you awaken your mutagens further withought having to experience life or death situations which is the way normal people do it.

Up until what I've read, I would not recommend this story. This may change in the future.

I enjoy:
The plot
That it's different
The Characters and their development.

However, the bad aspects so far are really pronounced. I only stuck out so far because I hope and I pray it will get better and if it does, I will report it here and change my score! For now, it's not something I would tell future me to read. Why? To say simply, you will become just angry at the author. The... more>> MC constantly getting into trouble is no problem for me, but I rather enjoy it.

First and foremost, decision making. At first the MC makes a few intelligent choices, but then he just starts making all the wrong choices. He could have come up with so many interesting approaches, but chooses the most barbaric and stupid one in many cases. I will give an example.

Let's say you're playing catch the flag. Now normally, you would try to cause a distraction on the opposite side and then run for the flag, or in many places. The MC would just run directly to the flag.

Secondly, Tools. I don't like it when the MC has tools (or relics in this case) that he never uses or they're not included in the thinking process. (WHEN HE SHOULD KNOW TO USE THEM) For example, let's say the MC had the ability to fly when attempting to catch the flag, but our MC still chooses to run. Let's say he had the ability to see everything from above and where everyone is standing, but when he runs he still gets caught by someone running across the field and doesn't see them coming. These are the moments I scream and I get mad. At first I blamed it on his age, but now he's 20 and I still don't see a change.

3rd and last point which will irk you. In every arc, the MC will follow around a girl. There will always be a different girl and boys are clearly less. To this point, I still haven't seen the MC kill a girl. Let's say the girls have bazookas, the MC still has the gut to joke around just because he has a slightly more powerful bazooka.

SIIIIIGGGHHHHH

To summarize, what is not appreciated:
MC doesnt use his tools right.
Bad decisions.
Favours the female gender above the male in confrontation. <<less

Novel starts out kind of repetitive, which is a tad bit boring at times as it is the same crap happening over and over again (constant "well how is he gonna get out of this one"). Eventually once you get past these chapters the story does get way better and you kind of see hints of these in the earlier chapters. If you've read manga, its like the transition from average shounen to a great seinen manga. Surprisingly, the novel is pretty grounded, and the "repetitive situations" that our MC... more>> gets into makes a lot of sense (he's literally a worm scurrying around until he gets his big break) in terms of the whole setting. As for those who rated the story very low and have doubts about the "print quality" label that others have said, other print quality novels can be worse than this one. You just have to have a bit of patience. Veteran readers who've read alot can understand that having nothing to read sucks, and reading a volume or two of "boring"chapters is nothing at all (imo they are setup chapters and the payoff is good). All in all, this one is worth a read if you can handle the beginning. <<less

Unfortunate this novel has been postponed for around 3 weeks now. Its little bit risky for you to start it while there is a chance the author might dropped it. Maybe because The Author went too far with the plot, Its incredible at first, the dark Atmosphere it bring is totally made me feel creepy sometimes. But Its seem like there is some problem with the set up of MC

. Not sure but it seem like doesnt matter how many things happened to him, he was still unbelievable naive. He never learn and like a f*cking small candle in the dark, its nice but really annoying. Its happened for more than hundred chapters so yea =~=..

"You're already dead"

~Uwa Shock~

Well, like most post-apocalyptic series with martial arts as a base, this one starts off okay.

It has a unique premise (which is really just a hodgepodge of other post-fallout worlds).

It is kinda weird and off putting that he is a genius at martial arts, and it takes him a short time to become OP, but well, w/e, only a few chapters in.

It has room for growth. Hopefully it won't be full of bad chinese cliches is all I can say.
