#Top 20 Webnovel Trending for three years

History is said to be written by the victors. If so, how about the history of Earth, where we are living now?

Two millennia ago, a young boy named Emery met a tragic fate. In his final moments, he was transmigrated and accepted into the most prestigious school of magic in the Universe.

“You are among the chosen few from thousands of human worlds. Whether you seize this opportunity or not, is up to you. You are at Magus Academy, the pinnacle of humanity's ingenuity. Magic, science, and might are all within reach for those who dare to pursue them."

[Scan complete - Quadruple affinity. Water, Earth, Plant, and Darkness.]

"A quadruple acolyte! Only one in tens of thousands of acolytes possess this!"

Thus began Emery’s journey together with his 4 friends from the furthest corner of Earth.

Each year they returned to Earth to grow, seek revenge, save the princess, conquer the world, and become Earth's Greatest Magus.

Their names are still etched in our history books to this day.

Authors Note:

I have always been fascinated by writing fantasy relating to historical facts. In this story, you will find characters inspired by real-world myth and legend. The universe I created hopefully will make the reader's imagination excited and logically plausible. I hope you enjoy it.

Author's Review After Writing 2000 Chapters

This story is a slow burn, perhaps as slow as the entirety of Volume 1. The main character is still a young boy and makes mistakes along the way. However, if you can push through to the second volume, you'll discover how this narrative managed to stay in the top 20 trending web novels for three years.

Here are some key aspects you'll encounter:

MC: The protagonist follows the classic weak-to-strong arc. Fortunately, he's supported by many loyal friends who help compensate for his weaknesses.

World: Picture a blend of Harry Potter and Star Wars.

System: While it's primarily a magic-based story, there's a structured system in place that's easy to follow. Additionally, elements of cultivation.

Harem: No, there are many female characters. But I enjoy romance first. So even if there will be more than one love interest it will be deep.

Note: English is not my first language, but you'll notice that my writing and English skills gradually improve throughout the chapters.

Other: The novel delves into deep research on science and history, enriching the storyline with factual and intriguing details. Give it a try—you might be pleasantly surprised by what unfolds.

    Review after 868 chapters This is book is fantastic as a lover of history and fantasy this is a unique twist on the story of Merlin. I plan to use in this review the overall pacing, upload/community, grammer and punctuation. #1 Pacing: Personally believe that this book has some fantastic pacing, as a weak to strong genre it showcases a real struggle for Merlin, he has his ups ans his downs and we can feel his struggle throughout the book as he continues life gets that little easier and that little harder. Everything has a purpose and there are long payoffs for those who pay attention. If you like mythology and history, you'll pick up tid bits which you'll really enjoy, many moments left me in a case of picking my jaw from the floor. #2 Upload Schedule and Community Avans has a great upload schedule he releases very frequently with usually two a day which is great. He keeps to his promises in regards to bonus chapters for golden ticket ranking and overall ranking pushes. The community is one of the best I've ever encountered, everyone is kind and friendly and the author does monthly quiz's and voucher giveaways in which he personally runs and he's very active in the chat, watching us theorise while he watching with bated breath. #3 Grammar and Punctuation: Throughout the book there is very little in regards to problems, Avans is very on the ball, fixes where possible and everything is just as perfect as you can hope. So to summerize some Pros and Cons Pros World Building is, in a word, magical The magic system is very interesting and easy to understand. The use of Bloodlines is also very unique and special in regards to its use and importance. The pacing is just about right not to fast and not too slow Will leave you wanting more and you will grow with Emery on his journey Cons some of the characters can feel 2 dimensional to begin with but they become fleshed out as the story progresses Many find problems with the romance at the end of the day its not the main focus but its a tool towards Emerys emotional growth and its still important, plus we have fun debates. The cliffhangers are killer, they're great but I hate them. You won't regret reading this book I personally binged the first 110 chapters in one night. I'm sure you will too.

    Absolutely love this book! I loved watching the MCs personality change from a young teen stuck with romantic issues taking on challenges he wasn’t prepared for to a grown adult capable of putting the greater planetary-scale interests before his own personal affairs. The early chapters may be a bit hard to read but if you put yourself in the MCs shoes during your hormonal years, I’m sure you will be able to relate to his issues. The overall plot is much more serious and bigger than the MC and so it’s worthwhile to stick to the book and keep reading. You won’t regret it. The writing quality has improved by leaps and bounds over the course of the book and the story is not very predictable making you wait to see how things actually turn out. The author is very interactdive in the discord community which makes it a very refreshing reading experience, you should definitely check it out.

    I started this series a while back and the beginning didn’t exactly entice me but with nothing else to read I decided to give it a second chance and I’m incredibly glad I did. The series starts off rough but by the second volume it really finds its footing and starts heating up. It’s always had strongly written characters but they really started developing towards the end of the end of the first volume and I couldn’t put it down. I see a lot of negative comments when reading but I just can’t understand them, you can really feel the love the author has for writing and the characters and that is what makes for a good novel. If you tried this series before but decided to drop it I really recommend picking it back up because you are missing out my friend. Thanks to the author for building an awesome world and writing an amazing story!

    Attention. A lot of frustrations are waiting for you. So for up to near 300 chapters author basically tortures the protagonist. And the protagonist has almost no character development. His naivety, poor judgements of characters or situations has yet to show any improvements. I know you will argue with me here saying that he's still 16 years old, but I'm only saying this according to other characters in the story.

    (My Honest Review😁) The MC starts off slow and his progress in Magic is minimal, But, now that I think of it, I enjoyed it. The process of the MC's, little by little improvement, until he gets stronger, is a slow and enjoyable ride. It's like when you ride a Ferris Wheel and peek outside, seeing a great view, slowly and surely unfold on your eyes. It may be because of me being Fan of a slow start, not like most of the Novels here in WN, being fast-paced and OP. (A quick summary without leaking any major spoilers) Earth is not exactly the "Earth" we know, but an Earth with a slight tweak with some new species and special people. 85 BC Earth, so yeah. Let's start with the World Building… I'm speechless. Start with Earth, and he, the MC miraculously gets transported to a place where People would learn Magic. Emery is a Human, but not really, as his Mother being *spoiler*. The Kingdom is an enemy to Emery's mother Kind and when they know his secret, they chase him, getting his Father killed, and him miraculously escaping the chase, and miraculously got transported to Magus Academy. Magus Academy is a place or Holy Land of some sort for Mages. Emery is a rare Human who had 4 Elements for him to choose from, but his talent being B, the worst talent in his class. He needs to pass the test or his memory might be erased and be transported back to Earth, but getting back means Death for him. (Summary Ends) The thing I like about this Novel is the World Building or the description the author is putting for us to see. 5 stars World Building. I see that most of the readers didn't like how slow-paced the story is, but for me, it is perfect. 5 stars Story Development.  Writing Quality is 4.8 stars, because of some typos, but it will not affect your reading Tbh.  Update? Waiting… as there are some personal problems the Editor is facing, so the Author can't publish the Chapter. 4.5 stars...🙃 Character Design is 4.8. The People are flesh out fine, and you can clearly feel the emotions they want us to feel. But not that clear sometimes, or it is me just being dumb?🤣 Overall 4.8! Great Novel with a Huge Potential!  *The way I see it(chapter 36) The story's MC is like an MC who will, or most of the time be an underdog. So you guys must be patient!🤣 *Comment your thoughts🤣 or questions🤔

    The MC is a hapless fool who gets everything a person needs only because the author wants him to. I guess people really love it when an undeserving fool gets it all because of luck without having any of the important qualities. They seem to like it even more when the MC is a talent less trash but with some super secret, super powerful ability.....

    Halo reader, i wrote this review after writing 70+ chapters and read hundreds of comments. So here is my honest review on my own work. 1. Its a slow start, i know the trending novel are currently a fireworks from the start. OP item or skill, etc. This one is a classic weak to strong novel. Even i dont really like the MC at the start. But i assure you it will change. 2. As much as it said historical, its not really true. It based on real world history but its still a fiction novel, so hope you enjoy the alternate earth. 3. The world and characters are the one i am confident with. i took a lot of time on them, but you can be the judge of that. 4. The grammer and writing stability should improve much from my last novel as i have more experience now. But please be forgiving if there still some mistake, as english is my second language. Please give the novel a try and hope you can enjoy the adventure of Emery and how he became the earth's greatest magus.

    I find the world to be great and many characters are great but i had to stop about chp 120. our MC is told how weak he is and almost dies multiple times before, yet he took the risk to fight knights he just saw fight very well. even after he thinks that old knight that trained his dad is a bad dude he walks right up to them and ask them , the dragon told him many times to not get in any dumb things until hes stronger. To me the MC is odd, we are told he likes to read and study at the start of the story, yet he seems dumb. after meeting granny he should had know he is not close to being that strong

    This story is definitely worth a read, the characters are well thought out and have their own depth to them, the world continues to grow with each chapter, and the split between the mortal world and magical world is an interesting one! The story starts off a little slow and at first Emery is a little gullible but he’s a kid and it’s believable! If you finish up all the free chapters I’m sure you’ll want to read more, I look forward to the continuous expansion of the magic cultivation and the world you’ve built

    I really like this novel because its really well written. I gave it a try until it was time to drop it. The character design really got on my nerves, I HATE harems but I gave this one a pass because the world building was so amazing. But when the author started throwing in those god awful tropes of the MC falling into harem member no.2's breast, I metaphorically rolled my eyes so hard they fell out. After getting near to chapter 46 and finding myself getting more and more irritated at the MC's naive antics, I thought to myself would I pay to read this book if I'm already not finding this book as fun, That answer would be a RESOUNDING HELL FREAKING NO!!!

    Here is my honest and detailed review: Personal opinion: This book is unique and I recommend it to everyone who likes to read about magic. I can already see character development in the future, unique magic spells and a lot more. This book is speaking to me. Telling me details without even reading about them. It's amazing. Writing Quality: I'm hungarian so I can't tell much.... That's what I would say about average novels with good writing style, but this novel is unique. Even I can tell that the writing quality is good. The author knows his/her way with the words. Story Development: A very good paced story. This is almost like magic to me. As if the author had all the time in the world to think about the story. Only 14 chapters and a lot of things happened, yet the story is not rushed at all. Character Design: It's really colorful. Author gave us almost enough character details. We can imagine the characters, but we can also depend on our minds. Every significant character got a personality here. Update Stability: Currently 7/week. Not the best, but it's not bad either. The novel is good so I'm already thankful. World Background: I can't say much about this one. It's interesting, a mix of imagination and real world. It's a bit hard to explain. Read the novel and you will understand. I won't say much because the novel only started 2 weeks ago. (Currently only 14 chapters. This an early review. I hope the author keeps up the good work. Also, I hope this review helped you understand a bit more about this novel.)

    Honestly the story is well written in comparison to many others out there but the Author should really work on his depiction of the main character's character as well as habits and train of thoughts. The way he handles issues is off-putting to say the least. His thought process is irrational and dumb and he tends to make seemingly "smart" choices but in depth investigation shows that his choices are actually rather stupid and don't seem progressive. He takes constant loses in dealings and is honestly a character without an ounce of spleen. He can be said to be somewhat of a sycophant and this is till chapter 70 as thats where I reached before nearly puking blood from the frustratiion the mc is causing me. Other than the main character I have loved everything about the novel so far. I highly appreciate the author and would like to encourage him to keep putting out chapters but to also work on this mc's character cause it really prevents people from reading the book when his character is this off putting in the beginning.

    I did as I always do and read all the free chapters before making a review. In my opinion, this is an amazing novel with an amazingly rich world-building and interesting characters. The main character isn't overpowered and doesn't have any 'cheat' abilities. Infact beside one advantage he has above most (but not all) he would be considered very average in terms of talent. This slower style of improvement in the mc allows the author to bring out my personal favourite feature of this book, highly interesting world building and side character backgrounds. While I've seen some comments complaining about the story being a bit slow at points I think it isn't a bad trait but infact shows that the author takes his time writing a detailed story instead of trying to pump out more chapters for their own gain. Overall the beginning of this novel at least by my standards can be considered one of the best I've read on this website and I really hope the author keeps up his amazing work!

    I have been a fan of the book for over a year now , and this is what I would like to say for the book 5 stars definitely , there are no major grammar mistakes or plotholes and the world building and story development are excellent. The author's way of description is second to none , you can visualise the terrain , the fight sequences and the characters easily as it feels 3D. As an author myself , i can say that this is one of my top 3 stories that i learnt from the most and is one of my all time favourites . It's been relevant on the platform for years now and even after 900+ chapters the story is gripping and there is no repetition. So in the end all i want to say is thankyou Avans for all the hard work.

    Hands down one of my favorite webnovels. Found it a week ago and got sucked into the story and world. I even was reading at work when I wasn't supposed to be haha. It interested me and then just sucked me in and held fast. The historical fiction aspect is brilliant, character depth is impressive and the world...oml so good. I wait everyday for the kotification that a chapter has been added and stop what I'm doing to read it haha

    Oops I forgot to review one of my top novels after so long! (At chapter 508) ~ ima make it spicy then ~ Honestly the MC’s character progression is slow but I appreciate that there is a more realistic resistence to change. You cant expect someone to go from strong family values to ruthless killer at a drop of a hat. He does progress though so chill. He isnt super OP or has any hacks/cheats. He has had a lucky encounter but his grind to the top is not smooth sailing at all. His talented friends keep up with him so there isnt a new group of people every arc... thank God for that because its hard Remembering so many names in novels! Also the depth each side character has is amazing and I ended up torn between main plot and wanting more side stories. Harem? No harem? Not sure yet, the author is tight lipped but there is juicy romance! Romance is a very well written subplot but not a dominate theme (yet). Im still not completly backing any ship yet! I will point out that the authors closure/shut down of one love interest was so well done that even though i hated the character it was worth every word i read. She could make a come back though, who knows how they will progress because these characters arent just a one off appearence. Though IRL history does foreshadow a spicy adulterous return. The unique flavour of this novel is its histories, myths and legends written into the plot. I love exploring Earths rich history through the plot while trying to google the history in the background. The undercurrents of the novel and its mysteries are closely tied with the above and make the novel so much more entertaining. So the world building is off the charts. To summaries, there is a reason why this novel is consistently in the top charts and these rankings are not wrong. PS - if you want a ruthless MC with a tragic backstory without the cringe edgelord vibe check out Blood Elf Monarch. Same brilliant character designs and mysterious plot but opposite vibe from this story. It was my first Avan novel too!

    So to start out this is an amazing novel I am all the up to the most recent chapter 237 and although the beginning is slow it opens up a whole new world once his second year at school starts and is a great novel to stick with as you will be blown away by the potential this story has! I love the characters they are very well done the interactions get better wnd better throughout the novel and leave me very satisfied! I will add more at a later date i am not the best at making reviews.

    Finally wanted to give this novel a review after almost 800 chapters. This novel is one of the best ones in this site and one of the only novels I read daily. The latest power boost for the MC had increased my interest in Emery and I guess this novel finally can deserve it's spot in Top 15 Golden tickets if it proceeds interestingly and hope you don't mess up the Morgana part when Emery goes back to Earth.
