TL Description: 

Monarch of Evernight is a steampunk fantasy novel with Western fantasy elements like vampires, werewolves, arachnids, and a sniper protagonist. The story is mature, dark, and involves deep intricate plots centered around large-scale wars and politics. It's largely different from traditional wuxia in that it has a faster pace, frequent action, and little to no fillers.

TL Synopsis:

The story starts with the protagonist as an abandoned child and follows him as he survives a cruel, spartan education to finally enlist as a proud elite of the empire. There, one day, an accident befell him that would change his entire life, strain all of his beliefs, and challenge everything he was taught to hate. An imperfect human being, we follow him as he matures both in strength and as a person, gaining allies and enemies alike as he marches onward. As to where that path would take him, however, is something we shall discover along the way.

TL Note:

The story picks up at volume 2 and increases in pace thereafter. Volume 1 is more or less a long prologue.

MoE is one of my favorite novels if not my favorite on this sight, it starts within a very dark and almost brutal world. This part usually keeps a lot of readers continuing the story, but if you can continue through I think you will find it is one of the best and underrated novels on this sight in my humble opinion. I think both the allies and enemies in the story are very enjoyable along with the well thought out cultivation world they reside in. If you are willing I hope you will read and enjoy this novel as I have. Ps. I think it would be a refreshing story for people who are tired of cliches in a lot of Wuxia, and Xuanhuan novels.

This is one of my favourite novels on here. The world building in this novel is amazing, the first book is basic just a prologue to the test of the story but it is 100% worth reading through it. I would 10/10 recommend this novel people who love massive world building fantasy worlds. As for the main character.... Honestly in my opinion if he had his way he’d probably just settle down and live a family lifestyle in peace but from the moment he was born and discarded fate had other plans. He Longs for peace but was born to to dominate his world.

I'm 983 chapters in. Every novel, on WW or NU, has tons of reviews telling you how it's the best novel ever, their favorite, a must-read, etc. My advice? Put more trust in the negative reviews.

This novel starts out dark and bloody. There is a seinen feel. There is also the promise of mystery and a long, exciting adventure with an interesting MC. This is supposed to be the selling point, especially for veteran readers. You'll be hooked in the beginning.

Yet there comes a point where you know the author is no longer on top of his game. Cliche scenarios we all know from other novels occur repeatedly. That's the first sign of this novel's decline. The dark theme gradually becomes more mainstream. Skits become common. Character development, for new and old, becomes dismal. The author falls into the inevitability of writing what comes easily instead of writing quality content. Can't blame. These novels are quantity over quality. But the steep decline in quality stings.

The biggest problem I have with this novel is the MC. He's great in the beginning, but becomes a one-dimensional character who gets barely any development. I think that has been the case for over half the novel now. It would be fine if the MC was always so simple, but he had such potential in the beginning. By now, his best friend might as well be the real MC, considering the level of character development, significance to and activeness in the story. The MC falls far behind.

My second problem is the kingdom building tag. It's the primary reason I decided to read. I'll tell you now that as of chapter 983, the events so far don't warrant that tag. Sure, the title promises that, and there is hope of that in the story. But the author has tried to deliver twice, and gotten sidetracked twice.

Despite my grumbling, which I feel is justified, I would still recommend this novel. This is way above average in Wuxiaworld, in both story and translation. I'm giving a negative review because I feel most positive reviews are misleading.
