Argon Raze, the best swordsman of the continent. He was dubbed the Sword Saint due to his unparalleled skills with the sword. He lived a life of endless victories in duels and challenges. However, all that came to an end when he challenged a young mage. He lost his winning streak and his life at the hands of this young mage.
Seemingly ready to accept his death, he found himself inside an unknown forest after being swallowed by an immense light. He was still alive, he realized. Although, he also realized he wasn't the same Argon Raze as before.

I enjoy the series for the most part. There's just one aspect that's really immersion-breaking and detracts from the story for me.
The whole lust skill that was randomly picked up essentially forces her into heat on a daily basis is beyond excessive. It pretty much forces her to rape others, and has some sort of addiction aspect that only seems to work on a single person for some reason? I could understand it being something that would pop up occasionally, like maybe every couple days, timeline wise. But it's become some sort of looming event that pauses everything every few hours, and has to be addressed before the story can progress again. It feels like the only reason there are R18+ scenes is because the MC is forced into it by the skill.
I don't know why this story has the MC as a male in their previous life other then to get the Gender Bender genre. The MC is meek, airhead-ish, relatively submissive to others and doesn't really have any male tendencies from their previous life. All this makes it hard to believe that they were a sword saint in their previous life.
Just bad pretty sub par honestly the MC is disappointing considering his/her age and talent before the swap incredibly Naive and stupid the Lust skill essentially forces R-18 and is essentially it's a f**k anything nearby kind of skill she has no control over makes Agency of the MC a huge problem and worthless from a readers view and the fact that she adamantly refuses to like a guy then falls in love with the prince because reasons Ilya is the bad kind of Yandere that is more annoying than actually Yandere and that's not even considering the stat spread and growth it's a jumbled mess all in all 2/5 lackluster protagonist forced love interest with no actual reasoning given aside from her Lust skill saying hey your in heat now f**k anything nearby if you don't want a coherent story with reasonable love interest and character progression of this is for you if you actually want decent story and plot progression then avoid this like a plague
The MC refuses advances of her girlfriend for some dumb reasons and then cheats on her often to quell her lust and fells guilty. Then falls in love with some d*ck for no appearent reason. If you can tolerate some sh*t love story then this is a barely readable novel.
I've tried reading this story 4 or 5 different times, but never got this far. I don't think I'll be getting farther.
It starts strong, I'll give it that.
But between the inconsistent (and annoying) MC, pacing, side characters, and forced s*x scenes I just can't anymore. Most of the characters act closer to being in what a high schooler imagines an adult play would look like more than they do anyone that'd take in air.
The final straw for me was when (after we get to another city 70 chapters in) the village head sits in the corner throwing a tantrum like a child, blaming the MC for things that she had 0 hand in, and the MC once again swaps personality traits around and goes stoic on him.
The "Fae" relations feel as superficial to everything as descriptions of magic, and I honestly found myself skimming through 60% of the chapters.
Maybe it gets better or something, but I don't care anymore.
The poorly written prose extends to the rest of the narrative.
This is basically why I tend to avoid LitRPGs. More thought gets put into the system than the actual writing.
A lot of the sentences feel like they're just there to fill up the page, adding nothing of value to the character, setting, or story.
In chapter four for example, the MC has been reborn into a new body (and world) for less than an hour, but apparently their "jiggling breasts" and lack of underwear are the most important thing at the moment. Let's ignore the fact that she was running from monster rats and rapey bandits mere moments ago, because her tits really need five+ paragraphs of detail.
I can only assume this has a four star rating because nobody actually cares about the writing quality of a fiction with the "smut" tag.
The novel started out great but the MC was overly foolish its like MC doesn't have common sense, this my review though as everyone taste is different so u can give it a try, MC was a guy and he is now bis*xual as well
I really liked the idea behind this story but as it goes on I find myself disliking it more and more. It's not that the book is bad but more that it's not my taste. Erin's character is fine but at times she really annoys me, like using her level-up points on lower levels of skills when it would be a lot smarter to save them for the high levels that are really hard to level... Then its just other smaller things that make me dislike this series (again, this is my preference and not that the story is bad)
I can't really put any examples of what makes me dislike the series since I can't really put it in words... With lyra I can't like her as a character due to her acting like a yandere
(When lyra and the elf pulled knives at each other)
Again, the series isn't bad... I would recommend trying it to see if you like it, just not my cup of tea.
The story is imaginative, well thought out, and consistent. The characters have some depth and flaws, which makes them more believable. The MC is strong but doesn't feel overpowered and isn't omniscient. The world building and factions have layers and intricacies. There are many aspects that relate to the real world, but not in a way that feels like it's part of the political debate or pushing a view.
I actually completely skipped the s*x scenes, which are plentiful, although that may seem odd considering the things I write.
On the negative side, even though there are remarkably few spelling errors the story is full of language errors, with wrong word choices, wrongly phrased expressions, and grammatical errors. I would recommend for the author to use a tool such as Grammarly or find an editor who is a native speaker. This is the reason why I gave 3 stars instead of 4. Other than this issue it's a good story.
