If you like Overlord, you are going to like this as it is very similar. MC is once again your average unappreciated nerd who becomes big badass boss in a fantasy world.
But there are several elements which make it different:
- MC is clever and he himself is not so much powerful (it is his knowledge which makes him into a powerhouse).
- The world is very original and interesting (underground world where undeads are people and LIVE like people).
- Characters offten show some standard tropes, but these are executed in a good way. And yes, villains are people too and do not act without reason.
- Story is mostly logical, but unpredictable and plot twists have been detected. And yes, what seems plain at first may later appear to be much deeper. It also contains some really emotional scenes.
As for elements, story mainly focuses on undead (human) relations. There is some politics, battles and cultivation, but these are secondary. It contains unexpectedly nice romance, moderately funny humor, popcultural references, some common sense breaking and lots of undeads.
The only thing I would reproach is that the story would deserve an editor. I often find some little mistakes here and there and dear author, "your" is not equal to "you're". Still, really good quality for a new writer.
Author isn't shameless giving himself a full 5 stars for this, he deserves them.
The plot unravels at a nice rythm, the foreshadowing is down intelligently with same-time actions through multiple POVs, the characters evovle and are well fleshed-out. No abuse of common writing props in the novels around (no system, no face-smacking,no fatty, no comic relief-guy...), and it's really refreshing to read without skipping paragraphs or having whole filler chapters describing the same scene three times with the same hyperbolic sentences.
I really like the change of mentality of the MC. He doesn't turn from a scaredy-cat like nerd to a homicidal maniac, no no... he follows a real denial curve, depresses for a bit, and finally picks himself up deciding he might as well do what he wants, staying true to himself.
This is not a wish-fulfillment story, it's a nice story that will make you think a bit about yourself, laugh and wonder all along. Worth the read.
While Wholly Undead is not the first title with the transmigration genre, it is one that takes an interesting and, within the fiction of the story, believeable approach.
The main character, Jack, is both entertaining and relateable, with his need to entertain himself when bored and his selfishness when it comes to that which he cares for. Each of the characters around Jack his closest friends, consorts, pet, and tool; are an absolute delight to get to know. They give our view of the world more diversity and allow the author, Voidmirage, plenty of opportunities to expand the world which holds Daegoth.
I personally find the pacing of the story to be quite nice, not so fast that I loose track of what's going on nor quite so slow that I grow frustrated and disinterested.
While there are grammatical and vocabulary errors they are never so bad that the reader is unable to figure out what the author was trying to relate, portay, or explain. Furthermore, the author shows care to their readers and story by going back and correcting mistakes that are pointed out in the comments section by readers.
Though we, the readers, do not yet know every nook and cranny of the world, we are slowly coming to understand the world at a very comfortable pace.
Overall, I quite enjoy the schemes of our villainous God-King, and I look forward to the future of this story, as well as, all future stories of Voidmirage.
To the author,
I quite like your inner voice, and your style. Thank you.
Good day for writing! If you wanted to see whether you can get paid by distributing the current work or getting financial support by writing new work, you might want to contact email@example.com. A brief introduction, some sample chapters or links will be appreciated when reaching out.
The best, I will not go into a detail as there are many things that are great about this novel. I just recommend to try this novel. The first few chapters are little bit slow as we dont know about the world but as of the chapter I am in, which is 170s and I am still surprised. If the author reads this please, pretty please continue this masterpiece, its great.
I KNEEL BEFORE THE GOD KING!
I love this book so much! All of the characters are amazing and everything is explained in a good way by the characters and not just info dump chapters. I have read this book twice now and it doesn’t get boring.
One of the best novel out here. Lore is like world of Warcraft. İt is consistent and very good foreshadowing and connection. I personally don't like harem stuff but this has far beyond perks even i continue to read harem
To the blind idiot god. This was a story beyond what i can write and for that i shower it with adoration. its stars are well earned and deserved. I shall follow it till the abyss takes me. On a serious note i was promised krakens, but regardless its a well thought out mature/insane story. Never stop dreaming.
I would like to say something original or differant from other views but they are already spoken so ima just tell you this.. if you like old music I agree and people who hate everything from 1960-1990 I can never agree with but to those who want to see what I’m talking about all you need to search
Eminem For rap older type you can find more on your own after that
The animals one personal I love house of the rising sun
Queen... just do it you won’t ever be disappointed search bohemian rhapsody just do it
Ben e king- stand by me
Search lean on me and well if you want further search a playlist
“Good songs not gonna lie” but the Bangkok violin is just a good youtuber I suggest you subscribe to him but anyway enjoy if you take the time....
Very well thought out. It stays interesting despite the obvious schemes from time to time as it relates to life or unlife haha. The story also skips boring realizations and moments by stating the obvious which I like. Smart yet charmingly stupid mc.
Binge read it. Love the characters, as well as the unique perspective on the unliving world. The world building never felt like an info dump, and brought the sense that it always served a purpose, sometimes multiple. The sappy parts were much better at not turning readers from the story as so many stories are prone to doing.
This is an excellent story, I have no idea why it's not ranked higher, aside from what seems to be an inconsistent (though by no means unacceptable) update schedule. I feel like Jack might have ultimately become a little too OP but it is well explained and not without reason, and at least some threats certainly continue to exist. Also I must admit that I greatly prefer the previous cover art to the current one, but that is just my opinion
A wonderful story, if you are looking for a excellent story to read, i deeply recommend this novel
It can be difficult to decide where to spend power stones here on Webnovel. This story has been a consistent place for me to spend them.
Certainly, there have been undead main characters before in novels. Still, I like that despite him being a king, he still struggles with almost everything that comes his way. This helps to show character development not only of the MC but also the supporting cast.
My only regret is that this story does not get updated as often as I would hope! It is a great story and I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested in a reincarnation story where the MC gets placed in a magic setting.
I really like the way this story is written, spelling and grammar errors are kept to a minimum and the pace of the story is good. I think that for anyone looking for a great novel that is still free to read this is the one.
A amazing story with a surprising twist where a Undead lich is able to use Holy powers. Thrown into a Unknown world with enemies and allies the Holy witch King will struggle with romantic problems and a idiot with a monocle plotting to destroy his kingdom. All in all I Highly recommend you read this
Hail to the God-King!
It's hands down the best original novel on this site. Join the Brainless Sect and vote power stones!
