Summary

My name's Rin, and I've been reborn as a cultivator with a broken core. Time to save the world.

Thankfully, the spirit who reincarnated me modified my core with a rune of power. Now, each time I ascend to a higher level, I can add a new rune, enhancing my strength. But this gift was given with a condition; if I don’t climb and conquer the Towers of Acalia, this new world will fall into ruin.

Plenty of obstacles stand in my way: raging spirit beasts, tower summoned monsters, rival cultivators. But by bonding myself to gorgeous women warriors, I can ascend and grow strong enough to take on the seven towers. Gods help anyone who stands in my way.

This novel includes elements of lite LitRPG, Isekai, cultivation, and a slow-burn harem.

Interesting take on Gamelit but a bit sexist.

I've really gotten to enjoy Gamelit and other such genres over the last few years, but have always found that there is a real subtext of musoginisyic sexism in the books which is not reflective of gamers of my (middle) age friends and this doesn't hold well with me and there was I fortu ately some of this here with descriptions of figures and appreciation for body shapes that place an unnecessarily immature label on the character.

Aside from this, I really liked the setup for this book and the very simple challenge the protagonist faces of keeping his newfound life together and afloat and out of debt.

Throw in cultivation, legendary creatures and tower grinding and you have a very fun tale with interesting characters (both real and bound to items) and a world I would be ahppy to explore further, albeit with less ogling or girls and wet dreams of coin shields.

MC feels like he should be on a list

MC feels like he should be on a list, and that's saying something with me having read all of William d Arand's books, he somehow makes Steve look well adjusted.

The world also feels cobbled together with dreams and duct tape, the world is growing stagnant for some reason, on a unrelated note the only people who can cultivate are crafters who have to sit in one area and craft using stuff they buy and sell as well as spend years learning their craft, no relationship at all to why people aren't traveling miles and clearing towers, more so with them being level dependant per area. You might also ask why is the tower any travel time from a town let alone a large one, seeing as it's a self made must first step, or why the first tower somehow spits up extremely valuable things even for the closest town in the least of the towers? How does cultivation even survive seeing as it is presented as a master and single apprentice thing, which then they run headlong into death? Where's all the angry lonely guys that have to deal with the fact a harem is literally a way of life here, drastically skewing the male to female ratio?

I don't mind some holes in a plot, but when the world is the hole, it gets a bit annoying, makes it all pointless and heavily deus ex machina.

Wanted to like it

Hard a hard time getting into this one. I enjoy atlas Kane’s work but this one seemed forced. I could have pushed through that but the narrator completely killed it. His narrator voice is always overly melodramatic regardless of situation and reminds me of desperate game show hosts and lounge singers.

Love this series

This book/series is fantastic. Absolutely loved the written version and Daniel and Rebecca did not let it down. If you’re on the fence about this book, do yourself a favor and give it a chance. You’ll love it. AK doesn’t disappoint.

The Narrator sucks.

The narrator is hard to like. I just can't get into his voice unfortunately.

The romance killed it for me

Usually with a story like this a romance usually supports it but I think the romance takes away from it. The author is good at world building but when it comes to a romance he sounds like a third grader. I might give the next book A girl but if it’s anything like this one I’m probably done.

Excellent story! With amazing narrators!

This was a great story. The character development was on point. The story flowed well.
Both of the narrators really made the story come to life with all of the different character voices. They’re some of the best.
I can’t wait for the next book!
If you’re considering the book do yourself a favor and pick it up. You won’t be disappointed.

Another Great

Don't wonder, think, or ponder whether to get this book. JUST DO IT! It is worth it, I just got done listening to a isekai novel were the mc is whiny and scared all the time, and running from everything while refusing to adapt to any of it. This guy grabs his situation by the nads and salutes on the plunge.
