    The sky bled flames, yet, it could only haunt her. Voiceless, Nameless, an unknown entity. Living within this world, nothing except a brand.

  • Eden of the Eclipse

    Eden of the Eclipse

    Fantasy

    While in the midst of clearing and mapping the last map within the massive virtual reality game 'Eclipse', in preparation for the final confrontation against the end goal 'Chaos'-the dragon of destruction, the members of the legendary party 'Eden' find themselves summoned into a strange new world. Faced with the ruthlessness of the king before them, and the world hell-bent on using them for personal gain, this three player's that had only ever known each other within the game must work together-break past their user names-and stop the Eclipse. However, what happens when their usual U.I is no more? Their status screens wiped? Their max level player avatars reset? What happens when they lose their oh so beloved legendary graded equipments? When they become mere fragments of their usual might? Worst of all, this world isn't merely an overlay of coding. Here, they could shed tears. Here, they could feel pain. Here, they could bleed. Within the world of Astria; they could die a gruesome death. However... "There is no way to stop the descent of the Eclipse, we can only fight and struggle after it has arrived. For that, we need a fully centered uniform army of humanity, strong enough to battle all the beasts that will inevitably arrive. However," "The people of this world are truly stupid, if we must save them from the Eclipse, the first step must be to conquer them." So proclaimed, on one fateful day, the tactician of the group, Allen Fraught. Thus unfolds a story about the summoned heroes conquering the world in order to save it. How would their misunderstood legend be written down into the history books? As heroes that saved the world? As conquerors that seized the throne of many lands for themselves?

  • [The Sound of Rain]

    [The Sound of Rain]

    Realistic Fiction Tragedy Literature Fiction literary novel

    Spring comes, April showers bring May flowers, and the sound of rain drenches the world. Just like the endless beauty of life, the budding flowers of the season remain fragile. Maria Springfield lives every day through slow monotones; a spotless, empty, apartment, and a clean life. She has come to terms with her growing emptiness, still unsure of just what meaning life has set for her, yet far from content. As if the rainy season a sign, she runs into a girl that seems to not only have her life figured out but also enjoys the seemingly mundane moments. A girl willing to drench herself in rain. "She had come like the wind and left much the same. Like the graceful fall of sakura leaves; beautiful and short, fragile and fleeting. Too, she was also the sound of rain." — Maria Springfield ___ Also available on Wattpad.

ThrustThunder: I've continued to read this because I believed you when you told me the characters would improve.
And seeing the MC act more like a civilized person these last few chapters made me realize what was bothering me about your assertion.
It's that most novels start out with a protagonist that is a normal guy by most Earth standards and evolves into a confidant leader with the power to overcome his insecurities and eventually pave his way into Godhood after numerous chapters.
This MC, however, started with a *Much* lower bar as a starting point.
He was whiny, cowardly, hypocritical and had no sense of self urgency. He would just do whatever he was told to by the plot and just ***** about it to himself. Basically he was that one friend we all had in middle school who no one liked but he would follow you around anyway.
So, although it is true that for the first 20 chapters he was ~Maturing~, it was just to get him to the point where most Well Adjusted people already are.
I'm sure it will be even more so in the future, but the problem lies with the fact that the readers are introduced to the worst possible version of the lynch pin of the Story that is your Protagonist.
This concept is a literary version of the "If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best" Woman that everyone hates, and can't get a Man to go on more then two dates with her.
I'm not saying this to be a "Hater", this is my honest criticism that I have come to after getting past the hump of the introduction and I'm looking forward to this story getting better and more self aware in the future.
Thanks!

Zelsa: As a first chapter to a story it was pretty good. Introduced a basic setting, the main character and explained a little about local society. That subtle ending with the father, whether good or bad was a decent hook. My only criticism is that you are telling not showing but as the first chapter there is reasonably not much to show, I hope as the story progresses and we learn more the transition from telling to showing becomes more apparent. What I liked the most was that you followed up on your statement on why the fire elements was preferred. That was good. Sometimes writers on this site make statements but then never follow up on them and just expect readers to take them as fact whether or not they make sense. Keep up the good work.

MC explains he saved her life. She thanks him. They end up flirting, hugging, kissing and she says "Be gentle" while MC gives her the meat🍆. Garbage writing like this is what bothers me. Way too forced. Romance was insanely rushed.... MC even has a damn soul bond with a half demon-half celestial wolf puppy by saving the mom Wolf who has a total of 15million HP. More crappy & forced than the most garbage cultivation novel. I had to drop it. Do not bother at all.

kseriousr: Don't read it if you are Japanese or Korean, you'll have to get past a lot, A LOT, of undeserving hatred. Not sure which other nationalities the author goes for after chapter 660.

It was a fun read at the beginning. Fun power system, reasonable and relatable MC, satisfying story arcs. Then baam, the author goes nuts. It was so heartbreaking to see a story you enjoy go 'Phantom Menace' on your bottom.

The author makes a point of going out his way, forcing situations where foreigners are bad and jealous of the MC and deserve righteous face smacking while people all over China cheer for him. Not the tritors though. You know, people who like anything non-chinese? They soon get what they deserve.

I laughed most of the times when things like this came out. Maybe because I 'm not from a country author tries to bash. We have an MC whose power and fame starts off with publishing various literature stuff he basically plagiarised (some from other foreigners that author hates) and the author is actually shameless enough to narrate the story in such a righteous tone that I cringed when I wasn't laughing. Dude, your main character isn't the genius you try to write him as nor is he better than the strawman foreigners who had actually put in real effort to better themselves. Your MC literally plagiarises the works of other great people that your power system made disappear. Your MC plagiarised Snow-white and later on you make him show off before Americans. I laughed, a lot, at the MC. It felt like the author actually turn off parts of his memories while writing some of the arcs.

Let me give you a fake example which can easily fit inside this story.

A Japanese reknowned poet will come to visit a Chinese university. He will be lecturing some stuff and sneering and spitting snarky remarks at the Chinese students, calling them less-them-genious and stuff. The foreign students would laugh along with some traitors. The Chinese students would get angry and shout and grind their teeth but what can they do right? Some will post the video on social media and Chinese people would get upset and stuff and call for justice but the reknowned poet would post something more infuriating. Then the Chinese celebraty MC would call for a duel, learn Japanese ancient masterful long lost poetry in a second through the system, face smack him, give a righteous lecture of how Japanese people are waste. The Chinese people will shed tear in their greatness, and face smack the foreigners again because they are great. The 'traitor fan girls' would call for MC's arrest, MC will get arrested, plagiarise a long lost poem of how prison can't hold the awesomeness of a true Chinese and people will lose their mind at his awesomeness. Some fan girls will convert and the rest will get a face smack and MC will be released and of to stealing more stuff. While at it, maybe destroy the Japan economy too, just for the sake of it.

I'm not being fair. The real arcs are way more detailed and way worse. Author narrates in a way that feels like he's expecting the readers to bask in awe with MC Literacy prowess even though we know where it came from. Instant powerups with no real effort. None. Any other stories of power system at least makes an effort on top of having an op system. I would be ok with that if not for the self oblivious hypocritical story arcs.

I still read it though.

PhantsmalPersona: In all honest way this story overly glorified and emotionalized and lacking morally and intelligently.

The main character, Zhang Ye, is brain dead and lacking originality. Blatantly plagiarizing and getting 'money' and becoming famous at the same time and gaining awards and what not. Why? Because people 'think' he's a genius producer, writer, host, professor and a lot more.

Rather relying on the so called system that 'can' bring him the talent he needs, he instead acts in all kinds of wrong ways and worse the author puts on him the righteous banner and others the shameless banner and make them all ape**** dumb like an evil young master from a cultivation novel.

There was potential but it was so quickly drowned by sensationalism and hilarity that barely anyone notices it. Now as situations go on and on in a very lame excuse of a repetitive cycle. Merely because of something 'bad' happened in his work place which kinda(?) guaranteed in every 'Fucking' Arc.

And hell don't get me started on the fucking hacking Arc. He fucking literally ruined a country and cost a loss of billions and most importantly, fucking lives. People bankrupt and patients dying in the hospital because of a fucking unending variation of a virus paralyzing all computers in the country. And worse, the author didn't mention no **** about this big problem and took it with the attitude of a 'serves you right' on the mc.

And this is one of biggest plot problems in this story. And when he get's caught he did what? spent 4 years away from his daughter advancing technology in prison. Jesus fucking christ, are you aware how many lives he ruined because of a malicious group of hackers? Rather than defending or helping your country from them, you outright attack their country as that reason?

Childish, petty, narrow-minded, shameless, hypocritical and greedy for fame, Zhang Ye does a lot of things in all sorts industries on his way to become a superstar and becoming a supervillain along the way.

Boy, I am glad I didn't try to 'seriously' read this story or else I would've been filled with rage and disappointment. I suggest for anyone reading this to not take this ever seriously and go for the giggles and laughs and faceslapping or what not.

asyeola: Two words to describe this novel, absolutely garbage. Where do I really begin, I can go on about the author using the same tropes literally every 50 chapters, "look this a totally amazing story/poem from my past life (people go wow)", random douchebag highly jealous villain with supposedly high knowledge about stories/poems "this is story/poem is bad (people go "villain knows everything, so this story/poem is bad"), MC goes, "I'll show you whose story/poem is bad", then a competition between the MC and the villain, where the MC wins after many tedious chapters. Now take this formula and repeat it for the entire novel, I'm not even kidding.
The next part is how overly racist the MC is. That person is white/brown/black, so he's evil.
The Chinese patriotism is so high that this novel might probably be included in mandatory reading in Chinese schools. Not just good nationalism, but the novel is also filled with disparaging comments about other countries directly or indirectly.
Kudos to the translators for working so hard on translating this novel.

Vanja: So this is a novel about a man, with multiple personality disorder, who was moved to a parallel universe where he, without an ounce of talent, with hard work climbs the ladder of fame.

I don't think that I read more than 2 chapters in a row where I wasn't reminded by an old Top Gear episode Clarkson said the following: "It seems then that the expression copyright infringement does not translate terribly well into mandarin", and the irony of quoting someone else while talking about this book is not lost on me.

The novel has terrible world building, as a ton of things are missing from literary arts, a lot of which was crucial for the civilization to develop as it did, but nothing is brought in to replace it. The character design lacks any dept creating a punch of two dimensional props. The exception being the main character who has so many contradictory character traits that I can only explain it via multiple personality disorder. Let me give you one example, he on multiple occasions commits, by law in most civilized countries, rape. By forcing physical contact with women where it is clearly not wanted. And then a chapter or two later he is super angry on a guy who dared to touch a woman without allowance from that woman. And is described as being mad on the guys conduct, as in not described in playing with the guy so he can beat him up.

I grant I have not finished the novel, but there are so many other well written books out there so I don't see a point in reading this one just to see many of those good works being butchered by the author.

leto74: Good translation.
That's about it.

It was fun at the beginning, but after some chapter, we got the same pattern again and again.
Plus the "strange" relation with women. Plus the racism (i stopped when the MC got a Korean singer beat up by a mob, principally because he's korean).
My bad, it's not racism, as the MC tell us over and over again, it's nationalism xD
The funny thing is, the MC keeps telling us about how Chinese are the best, but he is only doing plagiarism.
The irony is delicious, but I think the author is too dumb to spot it.
