Temedevil: Story wise i Love it but sadly they stopped translating so im really hoping that they somehow Pick it Up again.

It is one of the few novels that are more scientifically accurat, which I really enjoy.

xAnnnnnnx: Qidian! Please get someone to pick this up instead of going for new novels, this has been stagnant for months! Please pick it up or take it off your shelf!

mio: one of my favorite stories!

sadly, it probably won't get picked up again, ever, since Qidian has scared off any potential translator by half-forcing the previous one to post on their site.

this is a good example of why qidian will end up failing; by the time those few novels on here are done, everyone will be translating novels that have nothing to do with them, and they'll become no more than a relic of the past.

truly sad that such a great project ends up ruined by greed.

Nyko: I was pretty astounded when I saw the ratings for this novel - if not saddened.
This is... complicated.

I was glad to see this on Qidian since I started to use this app and The Dark King was a pretty good and original novel IMO. I binged it up to around chapter 400 I guess ?
Anyway, I was sad because I don't understand how people can give 5 stars to blatant copy pasta of typical xianxias, while trashing someone who, for once, did something a bit original.
And succeeded at it.

The Dark King is a post-apocalyptic novel about the survival of a young boy forsaken by the world.
Clearly not the light-headed kind of novel, The Dark King brings the most out of its story by toying with the reader's emotions.
I dunno if you ever cried reading a novel - I did - and somehow, I find it quite pleasant.
It's a food for the soul - as some great man once said.
The Dark King is, as usual in chinese novels, a story with a powerful main character.
However, and this is where it differs from the norm, there is no oh-so-welcomed/blatantly obvious plot armor. Of course the main character won't die. Nevertheless it doesn't mean he'll never fail.
The author tries to make it as realistic as possible, even if it means showing the readers the ugly side of humanity.
So the hero is a normal boy starting as low as you can start : treated as a low-life by the lowest of low-lives.
Nothing unusual.
But surprisingly there is no multicolored thunder coming to make him a killing god, no sudden heaven-trashing artifact reversing single-handedly his fate.
No, he simply just climbs the hierarchy using his guts and his wits.
Such a shame that the author wouldn't allow the clever hero to live a blissful existence.
Tragedy befalls him one after the other and he falls to a pathetic state.
The author depicts the transition of cleverness to cunningness.
Throughout the story the main character - who furthermore didn't live in a pink world of pixies and unicorns - gets the taint of society unraveled to him and becomes desillusioned.
A very believable transformation happens.
The hero wanted to survive, now, he wants to live.
Even if it means being ruthless and using the most underhanded tactics.

In a nutshell, the hero has to fight more against the human of the inside than the monsters of the outside world.
He fights many action-packed battles, but prevail in the political curtains.
He becomes strong both mentally and physically not through some heaven-sent opportunities, but because of what he experienced.

So when I see this getting such a rating, I feel it is my duty to speak up.
This is a wonderful novel.
Thanks for your time.

Nyko: Yeah, I thought so myself.
What you are saying is probably true.
However I'm pretty tired of reading the same old so this is like a breath of fresh air to me.
As you say I'm glorifying it, but I'm not really lying either. I believe reviews are supposed to help the reader understand the novel and look forward to it, so I'll indulge in such melodramaticness for now.
Sorry if I ticked you off.

Guys I just checked qidian side but ratings in qidian changed for almost every novel, so I dunno if you should believe this rating.
Also ratings on my other reviews are before ratings changed, so don't blame me if you see high ratings in qidian and low ratings in my stats.
Even a novel with 7.6 rating got changed to 8.8 rating, I dunno what qidian is trying to do.

loriperfect: 1- The MC Personality make the story interesting
2- The story line start slow but after a few chapters you get cough in the plot.
3- No complains about the translation, the story is clear and I'm able to follow the author though
4- there is enough twist in this story to keep you glue to your table
5- Please do not pay attention to the synopsis I think it is to abstract and someone need to write a new one.
6- in overall this novel is worth your time.

Feyr: Firstly I honestly gotta say, what is up with all you people? Are you some kind of water army? .-. I see it in so many novels, without many chapters, right from the start there are lots of ''reviews'' giving 4-5 stars. Yet none of them is even a real review but a senseless upvote without explanation and no real review.

SO ffs please give a real review with reasonable starts and explanation why it is so when giving a review. (Rant end, dat really bothered me for a long time.)

Now for the review itself. It is just a temporary one and will be changed after 100+ chapters are released. Right now it is just meant as an overview for the current chapters.

Translation Quality: I give that one 4 stars, 5 would mean perfection but nobody is perfect. Yet I did not find any big mistakes or anything noticable. As such the translation quality is very good and the flow of the story is nicely done. No issues here. If it keeps up like this this score will stay the same.

Update stability: I give that a 1 star rating for now and shall wait to a point of 100+ chapters to see if it keeps up. If yes I naturally will raise the rating.

Story Developement: Same as Update Stability, alas I will give it a 2 star rating for now as it seems to go into an interesting direction. Military seems interesting, and the idea of the story is a nice one too.

Character design: For now I will give it 2 points too. For the ****** reason that it is only 21 chapters for now and the character is still in the establishing phase of the story. I have to little info to work with it. Alas the character itself does seem ok at this point. I have not found any issues as of yet, at least no major ones. (Can't be worse then cobi anyway)

World Building: The world itself seems very interesting, the flux energy and the shadow haxx. I am tempted to give it 4 points right now but I wont do it yet. Reasons are that the world also is still in establishment phase and a lot is still to be known. There also is still the possibility of author san fucking up terribly with that and leaving out endless details and explanations. Right now as example I am wondering what the hell is the 5th dimension. Is it an dimension of its own? If so whats so different about it? Are there other dimensions? I basically got told nothing cept yup, tis the 5th dimension. No info no nothing. If there will be more infos on such things and explain things about those places which seem common knowledge in the story I will rate it higher.

The end. At least for now, I am quite interested in this story for now. Let's see if it keeps up or if I will get disappointed.

ShengSong: Good story but greedy TL, 70+ Chapters locked without the ads option is excessive.
How the Lord 3rd always said: You are immoral!
You need to be converted.

Will drop it and wait for the TL to reconseider.
Better review only if the Goldigger attitude changes.
