The king of the dark and mature hill, it's a heavy but worthy read. The quality can seem to waver, but you realize afterwards how... more>>

An easier read in comparison, but still a high quality one, it also does the genre great justice.

It's got a lonely and anti-hero/self protagonist, but it's light on the gore. It's a quality novel, but might not the same mature content as... more>>

    I read overlord and death mage, now reading dungeon defence. Not mush into other than jp novels, but dungeon defence is exception. I would like more recommendations.

      I've been looking for novels that match the tone and quality of Overlord/Dungeon Defense, but I think much that is being translated (and probably written) caters towards the younger, less mature audience. I've updated the list with a couple of promising novels that I haven't read yet in an attempt to lengthen the list, but I'd appreciate input on other potential novels that fit the genre.
