Vicarious_Writer: I'm a heterosexual male, and I love this book. I am only saying this because some people will run away just because it says BL. I don't want them to miss out on the adventure that awaits.
Now I can give you my review.
Writing Quality: Four stars
The author has a clear grasp of the English language and knows what she is writing, unlike me. The only thing that stops it from getting five stars is some minor grammar errors: unintentional malapropisms, passive voice misuse, and some past-present tense mistakes. However, as I have stressed, they do not appear everywhere and won't stymie an enjoyable reading experience.
Stability of Updates: Five stars
The author does what she promised. She gives the readers(us) chapters every day. She even uploaded a double the next day when she skipped a day. I proudly give her a five here. She is reliable and I am more than content.
Story Development- 5 stars
Although there are some things left unclear: dad and stepmom related. I am sure this is the Authors intention and not that she forgot or is too lazy to write about it. I know, because the story itself is very clear and engaging. The pacing isn't too hot nor is it too cold, it's just right. In fact, when she uploads I drop what I am doing, I grab a packet of chips (crisps), sit back and enter the world, she so assiduously provides.
Character Design- 4 stars
I'm giving a four-star here, only because as of now, the only developed character is Xinya. Also, Xinya isn't your typical main character, and I like his character.
Moving on to the supporting cast, which in this case is the NPC's. The main character has only made one friend as of yet. This is not an issue, as I've said before, the pacing of the story is a beautiful experience.
Now with regards to the NPC's, I'm not so happy. The NPC's are supposedly lifelike, however, they felt programmed to me. Maybe, it is just because most of them are female (I'm not sexist, there's a reason I'm saying this. I can't tell you without spoiling the story). So far the only lifelike NPC I have encountered was at chapter 18. She asked proper questions and it wasn't a simple, "I need help, hey, you help me!" This does not happen in real life. When someone has a problem, we don't just broadcast it to the first person we see hoping that they will save us.
I've wanted to tell the author this for a while, but I was afraid she would work on those chapters and because of that not upload the next day. Yes, I know how selfish this is, but it's also a testament as to how much I am enjoying the story.
If the NPC's become more life-like or a personality enriched supporting cast member shows up, I will update this review. However, as of now, I am content with a four-star, on character design.
World Background- 5 stars
I'm giving this five stars. I don't need to explain why. I think I've gushed enough about how much I love this novel. If you are reading this stop. Instead, read this novel. Bless your eyes.Haven Online
ResidentialPsycho: Ed Sheeran?!?!?!?! It'd be funny if he read this web novel! That said, it looks like there might be a new member of the Tarot Club finally? This one would be the first to join using the special items since Little Sun.Lord of the Mysteries · C563
Retsura: Now that i think about it... spirit world is a place where information, knowledge, and random creature is converged and creating chaos or something along the line...

Mr_Jiaoxia: Lol the author must hate sheeran’s music.Lord of the Mysteries · C563
WTFox: This book is amazing. Probably amongst my top two favorites amongst the current translated novels, second one being House of Horrors. The plot is solid, main character and even side characters are fleshed out properly. Translation quality is also excellent and there's a ton of chapters out. Highly recommendedLord of the Mysteries

tsukkin: I WILL DECLARE MY LOVE FOR THIS NOVEL SO LISTEN WELL...
Personally, this is one of the best CN novel that i've ever read. I'm quite happy that this novel will be translated bcs all this time i mtl it myself, but at the same time not really happy bcs i caught up to raw and it's a long way from the current tl, i can't wait for too long...
But anyway!! These things are the reason why this novel is so amazing:
1. WORLD BACKGROUND
When i first read this novel, i thought it was like typical transmigration novel. You know.. fantasy world with magic and stuff. Well i'm not really wrong but the world background in this novel is very realistic. I think it's similar to post industrial revolution era in England, 1800s. Also it's a steampunk novel, so there are lots of historical machine and stuff. And the magic here isn't as omnipotent as i imagined it would be. Being an "extraordinary person" is not that powerful, there are serious danger and side effects, so people there aren't as OP as other novel. What i really love about this world background is how the author beautifully combined fantasy world and real life historical era in England. Like how people live and dress and adress each other at that time. The social class was very distinct and thoroughly explained. And how the other transmigrator before MC introduced the machinery to the world so it would start the steam and machinery era in that world.
2. CHARACTER DESIGN
I LOVE TAROT! And i like how the author used 22 major arcana in tarot as identity at MC's "Tarot Club". And i realized the Tarot identity is closely or somehow related to the characters. Like MC's "The Fool", represent 'the beginning' in Tarot, and the first member of tarot club. And later in the story MC made fake identity "The World", represent 'the end' in Tarot, so that MC can trade for things openly in Tarot club without breaking The Fool's God like image. So in a sense, MC is 'the beginning and the end' in the story. And Audrey's "Justice" identity, represent fairness, is closely related to her sequence as "Audience" and how she should see things objectively. Because hey, Justice is a double-edge sword right?
OK!! Maybe my description is a bit confusing, so i suggest to just read...
I love how MC is smart, cautious, quite shameless, witty, and not OP! He has clear main goal, which is to go back to his world, but things happened...so stay tuned~ And the other side characters aren't just cannon fodder for MC, they have real and unique personalities, goals and ambitions. For me it's really great because i'm sick of reading novel that centered heavily around MC. And how other people has no means in the novel.
AND I LOVE HOW THE VILLAINS AREN'T TOO STUPID! Tbh idk if i should be happy or worried with this lol. But yeah, some villains are really hard to predict. So this novel's characters always give me surprises. For old readers, you might get confused by the character's names here, some names might changed, like Emperor Roselle, in the old translation and mtl, we read it as "Russell". But it's not really a big deal.
3. STORY DEVELOPMENT
I think this story is a slow paced one. And the story gets deeper and more complicated late in the novel. MC is not suddenly become OP nor has a great knowledge to use his goldfinger. MC can barely use and understand 'the world above the fog' at first. He learned things bit by bit. And the plot is always a surprise, Especially in Volume 1 (1ch until 200+ch i forgot) i cannot really tell who's the friend and the foe. Leveling up in this novel is very long, so don't expect MC to level up in just dozens of chapter bcs i read more than 500+ chapters but he's still a....
Ok i'm not gonna spoil you now hehe..
Overall, for those fantasy, mystery and thriller lover, this is a perfect choice for you. Don't be discourage bcs of the Steampunk theme bcs it's not the main point in this story. This novel is full of adventure and mystery, it's like "Sherlock Holmes fantasy style" novel.Lord of the Mysteries
SRandom: Probably one of the 2 best CN novels of 2018-2019. My House of Horrors and Lord of the Mysteries. Nothing much to add, the high ratings speak for themselves.Lord of the Mysteries
Crater: It's an amazing story that's had stable releases for the past 8 years and is nearing its finish soon, the entire story is free to read by the author, only the first Arc is posted here so if you like the story you can read the rest elsewhere.Mother of Learning
xcares: "Stubborn as a brick baked out of a stone that was formed in the core of another brick".... let's ignore this makes no sense, are you saying she is a female Tiny by using the same kind of analogy RinoZ ? XDChrysalis · C462
TRUCK_KUN: U know instead of later butting heads with the legion, the hive might come with a diff approach. Starting by proclaiming their sapienhood and becoming more of weapons dealers or even legionnaires themselves along the way u know. I mean that would be way better and productive than going against them like mindless horde monsters. They could probably show themselves as a new sapient race this would make this GEM go down a whole new diff path than the usual cliché MC vs the world scenario.Chrysalis · C462
DR1: So...does that mean CG’s dad scammed that poor old headmaster & now CG’s scamming him? 😅My House of Horrors · C854
Marvson: Well, his father taught him well, in the art of scamming people and ghosts. I love main characters that keep scamming people around, it's like they are walking on the line between good and evil. They are so selfish that they recognize that in order to benefit themselves they have to help others.My House of Horrors · C854

xmckeyx: I don't think so..with contradict belief, i guess instead of that happen it would be the legion put on hold on their 'returning' to end the colony once and for all. Heck! Even Anthony not there at the momentChrysalis · C460
FearlessCloud01: Love the fact that Anthony is still cracking jokes away to glory even though the situation is a little(to say the least) tense.Chrysalis · C459
Tetractys: Top of the morning to ya, fellas! What a great day to become an ancient.Chrysalis · C459
Darian: They already showed that they can overwhelm his mind when they need to, and even without the mind magic he had trouble holding off their warriors in the initial hunt. I think it is reasonable for Anthony to go along and bide his time.Chrysalis · C458
