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.

MkGod: It helps me remember this stuff and it makes the story more immersive if you integrate it into the story than putting this information in a chapter by itself

HeartRend: Basically he fight off some young master who then calls his dad to help. When dad loses the clan behind then helps. When MC beats the clan then the bigger power behind them attacks MC. And this would go on and on until either there is no more higher power or MC has become too OP.

InfiniteZer0: Kind of lack luster. I got through 35 chapters and nothing really stands out that makes me think this is a good book.

He gets powerful really fast, which is fine because it is explained, but he can break into a highly secured facility guarded by around a hundred people who have trained their who lives, that are incapable of even slowing him down for a couple of minutes. He conveniently gets connections with people with powerful secret techniques that he can conveniently use even when no one else his level can use that shows power above his level with no draw backs and has many stages that will make him even more powerful when unlocked. He gets a (presumably) god powered equipment conveniently picked up off of some guy, who comes from a group that really should not have been strong enough to get it in the first place (and no one seems to figure out it was them despite them losing several people to gain this equipment). Even if it makes a little sense, some action go too far away from common sense and it is way too frequent.

Everything is just working out for the protagonist too well. I would not complain if the book actually went somewhere with a sub goal other than just get stronger. Getting stronger is a means to achieve a goal, but should not be the goal itself.
