it somehow satisfied me...
I had read it to the end ... not this site thou haha
For 1800+ chaps, it was good until around 1200 or 1300,
it started to be subpar. but I recommend to anyone who likes cold blood mc and scheming plot.
The regrets are very rush ending and leftover plots that had not been mentioned and continued...
oh and i don't like how mc alway complains that he is not that smart, so he has to think carefully and revise his plans all the time ...
YOU ARE FREAKING SMART ALMOST EXPERT IN SCHMEING ! IF IT WAS ME, I WOULD DROP DEAD AND LOSE IN TRAPS JUST IN MY
1ST OR 2ND WORLD
the first half of the book is smart and well written while later half is mostly filled MC's sudden obsession with food. he behaves out of character for food. to be honest it's overdone. it even killed the joy of redaong the first half.
Wonderful start. Then becomes trash. Well not complete trash, the author can tell a good story, but unfortunately he stops doing that. After about a third of the book it becomes very repetitive. 1/3 of each ‘dungeon dive’ is the MC being way too OP and just destroying everything, 1/3 of it is the female characters getting all wet and fighting over the MC (who is too aloof and the strong silent type to care), and 1/3 is good story telling.
Now i have seen a couple reviews that call it a harem story, nah not really. But ot does get old and annoying really fast. There are literally full chapters of just girls fighting over him or trying to win his attention. It adds nothing to the story and just breaks things up unnecessarily.
So because the way OP MC and the gaggle of girls taking up 2/3 of this book I am only giving 2 Stars and quiting at chapter 1000 (I really wanted to find the story, characters we saw in the first 200 chapters so I kept reading it, but after so much torture i gave up).
Story start out great. The MC is interesting, hardworking, and actually uses intelligence. I would give the intitial start 5 stars.
But after a couple hundred chapters it get boring. The MC and story changes completely. It turns into a MC so loaded with plot armor that he just walks in swinging a big sword or summoning a big monster. No more use of intelligenc or the sneaking around. Add in the haremy vibes, that are now going on with all the most beautiful, strongest, or lolli-ist girls fall for him and want to follow him around, i am over it.
Such a shame that it has become a 3 star story. (Only because the writing and general world arent bad)
This is gonna be long.
1. The MC in real life is an orphan, who is suffering from brain tumor. He needs large sum of money, so he plays a mysterious underground game to sell in have equipments to earn money.
2. The have is illegal, so death in game means death in real life.
The theme is of do or die. the mc is dropped into mysterious setting with main mission, which he needs to complete, or he will die.
3. The power level of explored very very well. Not in levels but in different grade
4. The game is not your typical game, it's a race for survival.
5. the MC is not op. He is smart but xuanxia fake smart but real smart. He is cold and ruthless. He doesn't make friends easily.
I Love that if he sees a mysterious beautiful girl, he will not be enchanted. He will attack her, immobilise her or kill her and then unveil the mystery.
He struggles hard to be the most powerful
6. The romance is non existence until very end ( of 1800 chapters).
7. The game is very mysterious. It may affect real life. It's not easy to leave.
8. The villians are not the usual 2 cent villians. They are very intelligent and have they're own schemes. the MC finds clues to unveil their schemes.
9. it is sort of thriller as well as fighting story.
if you want a serious novel, with intelligent, lone wolf MC . this book is for you.
Our doesn't contain slice of Life elements. It is a survival novel.
JUST FEW WORDS GOOODAAASSSFFFFFF ....,....

This novel just sENT ME TO ASTRAL PROJECTION💀💀💀. Like puhLEASE THIS GOT NO BUSINESS DOE TO SLAP ME IN THE FACE WITH ITS ✨PERFECTION✨
Plot? Immaculate 💅
Character Development? Chef's kiss 😻
No harem? 🍒 on top
When I first started, I got bored so I dipped but I picked it up again and guess what? NO REGRETS JUST FACTS 🍇 And that's on periodt 👑 Though the ending is somewhat anticlimactic 🤡 and a bit rushed 😤
I still LOVE it and prolly one of the BEST novels ever for me♥️
Unfortunately, it can't get a 💯 since it seems that there were missing/chopped chapters based on what I saw on MTL 😭Not sure if it is true tho ❤️
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO READ 😼
Really, really great story! Read it all the way through. The only reason I couldn't give a perfect score is that the ending was a bit rushed. I would have been happy for another 1000 chapters. I loved all the characters, even that ba****d Broker lol. *sigh* Now I want a sequel...
This is Tynan, I am an editor from another platform that focuses on adventurous Genre Fictions. After reading your “The Devil's Cage ”, I decided to contact you and if possible, to extend you an invitation on distributing your works. However, there are so little I can talk about it here. If you were interested, please contact me via email@example.com
, then I should take opportunity to discuss it with you in detail.
It was a great pleasure to meet your story.
My favorite Novel many times better than about 99,99% of all Novels out there, a bit sad that it didn‘t showed more, in the end Kieran did had a Rank of about V or VI(don’t know his Rank after the last powerup, but I’m sure he isn’t over That Rank or on the top Rank at least),and we saw that this is not the max Rank, his teacher was somethink withing Rang IX or something(don‘t know if her Rank was 100% confirmed or it was just guessed in the Novel,but yeah she was many times stronger than him) in the last couple of sentences they said that he stayed in the game and continues fighting,I‘m sad that we couldn‘t see it , but overall loved the whole book.
The most amazing book I have read on webnovel so far. I am sincerely prejudiced against most male leads in game element type books armed with the knowledge from a past life or armed with a legendary weapon they brute Force their way to the top slowly with insignificant setbacks and they take pride in their abilities but not Kieran, Kieran is a fucking boss from a weak ass newbie who'd retch at the sight of a dead body to a God he maintained the same vigilant attitude aware of his own strength and not getting swept away in it he planned and schemes to get to the top and unlike most game element genre in the big city death almost certainly means death. Amazing
Loved the novel I enjoy the world the kiren is living in, he has nothing to lose since the game is his only hope to live and he has little time to live, the translation is perfect in my opinion its a must read
Translation: 5 stars
Story: 4 stars
Characters: 5 stars
Overall: 5 stars
Abrupt and obstruse ending leaving most of the storylines unsolved: -4 stars
Final Rating: 1 star
Beyond repetitive after the first few volumes. MC is perfect. Always has the perfect plan and comes out on top everytime without fail. Boring. Biggest blunder is the Author chose to queer bait their readers. One of the worst things a writer can do. Hope the Author is reading this so they can know not to queer bait again. Fucking grow up. If your too scared to write a sane sex romance than just write a hetero romance from the start. Wasting your readers time with your bull**** story. Any potential readers should not waste their time. This story has lost any traces of redeeming qualities by the end.
What... wait... What?????? Where is the ending ??? How could the autor finished this book like this???? This book is entire amazing but its end is just appears suddenly. What a rush it is! That's cr*p!
A great story of a vr game, interesting characters. those who like fantasy history and games, a very good option, I recommend, each chapter, one more interesting than the other.
thanks for the translation.
