    The story is getting worse as the time goes by. Here are the idiotic things i have read so far. On the spot finger printing and checking without magnifying glass.. now thats got to be one of the most inefficient way to validate a person identity trying to enter and secured area. The Author just spent 13 chapters explaining how his brothel works. Author would sometimes spend 3 - 4 chapters on sexy time but spends 1 chapter on a battles that supposed to have happened in days.

    Hi, This is the author shamelessly tooting his own horn. This story sprouted with me asking a simple question, 'what if I got stuck in Alexander The Great's time? Could I survive?' Please join me as I represent a gritty, realistic historical war novel driven by romance, intrigue and drama, and spiced with modern inventions. Do you think you could have survived in ancient times with your modern knowledge? Follow me and find out. ☺️

    The story starts promising but with an extremely bad pace, 80 ch. for only two days and then a week in 10 ch. making an inconsistency in pacing. Also the mc in the zanza development arc is contrary to the first arc, just wanting to change everything to modern standards forgetting he is in older times and as he already explained first he has to adapt, but this doesn't happen. Also the interest for him creating a competitive market of modern times is ridiculous, considering he has a monopoly of goods that are groundbreaking, thus he don't need that competitive prices.In general the story is good with interesting concepts such as the army scheme and world building but the mc cannot manage to get a defined personality: does he want to conquer, develop economy, protect himself or let debauchery consume him, is he a good person, is he bad, neutral. It isn't clear what he wants or what he is so the mc becomes a character with inconsistencies that damage the plot and development of secondary characters.

    it was a 5 star novel in first but now it gets worst because the author keeps waisting time explaing every detail for so many chapters . It feels like the story stopped moving, also the mc is a beta submissive to women he gets insulted in his face every time he just does nothing ... so yeah i dropped it .

    the story is fine but the details of intercourses are very detailed but the battles aren't.. its just weak spot here they solve it themselves and done win. but when it involves intercourses it's literally detailed to the point that it's even showed as a custom in parts of the kingdom.

    150 chapters and only 6 days have passed this is too slow and unrealistic.. there´s too many little details that the more you read the more you realize that there´s actually nothing happening, also the author gives little foreshadows that are extremely annoying.

    This is it. The author had to have put crack cocaine in this book with how good it is. The intrigue, use of suspense, worldbuilding, schemes e.t.c everything about this book is done well; I even dare say this book is better than tyranny of steel, that’s how good it is. I highly recommend it any prospective readers.

    I love this Kingdom building web novel. The world building and character development is amazing and realistic. A MC can’t just use his modern knowledge to quickly create a kingdom, create fire arms and take over the world. I love how creating a blast furnace create political and economic problems. I love how religion plays a major role in creating “common sense” / describing what’s right or wrong. I love how the Mc makes mistakes and isn’t perfect. Like winning every war. Throughout the novel, the MC is also depicted as an intelligent and lustful man. However, woman can be dangerous. I’m glad that the author recently address this situation. Perhaps, now the Mc will become acute when facing woman. This novel is amazing. Slowly building up the technology latter and adding new reforms. I love it.

    If Menes losses again, Alexander should replace this black general.. All he does it lose big battles. Why bring cavalry when you just want to play hide and seek in the Hills? This Menes is so inept as a commander / general.

    The description is interesting, but I have a question. Does the MC have any desire to conquer more territory or is he just trying to survive?

    Jeez I love ❤️ this novel, the intelligence , word plays and world building is attracting and addictive this book is good I hope others get a chance to read although there are some few typos they are still easy to understand. It will be amazing if the author gets a new cover for his novel so it could attract others . People are sleeping on this gold.(suggestion since this Alex has long black hair and azure eyes , have an image of such liking with him in emperor ‘s robes 🥵🥵🥶 of him standing watching down on everything ) bet you they will all come running with the title already this interesting. The cover will help the marketing.

    This novel is kinda like Mediterranean hegemon of Ancient Greece. Even the start is the same except for the weird romance. If I recall the reason I dropped this was because of the romance. All in all nothing in the novel really made me keep reading. For example the Mc, side characters, Fl, the world. But that’s just me I’m sure others enjoy this.

    IMHO, this is the one of the best novel about kingdom building and war I've ever read. Currently, I've already read all available chapters. I wish author continue such breathtaking novel. Good luck everyone!
