I lived like any ordinary person when a stranger suddenly approached me, “You are… a hero.”
“No, I’m not.”
“I see. You are the one we have been waiting for…”
I just told you I wasn’t though.
“How surprising. Were you aiming for this perhaps? As expected…”
This is crazy, absolutely mad.
“Praise the light!”
I am about to go insane, for real!

So, I've been trying to read this because I absolutely love SCOG but its been rough. I read some of the comments on the chapters and some of them I agree with and some I don't.

I saw some people saying the reason they had a hard time with SCOG because it started so slow and that they are having similar issues with this novel. With SCOG, it starts slow, but your in a world that's (relatively) grounded in reality. Guy down on his luck after falling into addiction, ruined most of his relationships, and basically at the lowest point he can be. It takes a little while to get to the meat of the novel, but you at least have some basis of understanding to ground what your reading.

Where this novel... well... it starts with a loner who has magic sort of, constantly getting into sticky magic related situations and nobody around him tells him anything about anything. Then he finds out hes actually special chosen man but literally everyone in the world has been trying to hide him from that. Nobody is willing to speak a single word, or if they are they are held back by promises or whatever.

I want to like this novel. I REALLY WANT TO. But it won't let me understand anything. It gives me nothing to latch onto. It's like if you walked into a hotel and there was no lobby. Just someone who hands you an unlabeled key and expects you to figure out where you room is by guess and check. I'll probably try to continue reading it because of how much I loved SCOG but this novel makes me feel like everything I've read so far is gibberish. I probably wont revise the rating even if I do end up enjoying it, because this issue feels like a really fatal flaw.

Not much provided to really form an opinion. Usually, a sneak peak will have 20 full chapters but this seems more like one incomplete chapter that was split into three😕. I don’t like ghosts or necromancy but I do like sci-fi. I guess I would read more in order to decide if I liked it. The content provided is really doing a disservice to the author because it is impossible to get a clear picture of what the story is about or who the main characters are. I’m giving it a positive review because I would have read more if it were available.

To be honest, this novel reminds me a lot of Above Your Head, which starts off decently well, stutters at mid and devolved into utter nonsense by the end. MC gives the "I want to be left alone" vibes but seem to easily get pulled into one shenanigans after another.

This kind of alien sci-fi fantasy really depend on how well the author can convey their ideas and storytelling while not being disheartened of local Korean feedback isn't positive.

For now, I'll leave it as recommended, but will revisit and leave a review proper when more chapters are released later.
