He had lived a good life. A man who traveled the world, saw the cultures, learned the languages. For a period, he had even discovered a historical preservation of a martial art practiced by the Samuri and Ninja in Japan that caught his interest. He learned it until he had attained a level of mastery worthy to instruct those back in his home in the United States.

Before he settled down to become a teacher, he first became a nurse. It was too late to go through the intense schooling to become a doctor, but he had been inspired by the Indian and Chinese traditions of the strong link between the ways of healing and the ways of body mastery that are the core of the martial arts.

He settled down and had his family, opened his school, and taught several students. It was a good life, his 60 years. But then, when he had finished the children’s class one day in which his own grandaughter was a student, he decided to take her for icecream. That was when it all went wrong.

He was fine after the accident. His grandaughter… was not. In that moment, someone claiming to be a fallen goddess promised him the ability to take the consequences of his mistake entirely onto himself. He would die, his grandaughter would live on in perfect health. In this moment of weakness, he could not possibly refuse.

The last thing he knew in his life was that his precious granddaughter had been saved. The first thing he knew in his next life was that he was in the womb, and he was a twin. A twin he would later discover was the very goddess who helped him to save his granddaughter.

      Status: chapter 35: no longer together
      Jun 28, 2019
      This novel is like watching a cat take three hours to decide to go outside, meowing about the place to make sure you super srs 4 sure know it wants to go outside, but it never quite gets out the door. Then when it finally does go outside, it rushes back inside to meow at you again. It's a cute cat and you want to love it but by god, just go outside already!
      Interesting setting, but it's too slow and boring for my taste as it feels like I'm reading a teenager's essay more than half the time. Terrible pacing, suffers immensely from 'show don't tell' syndrome, with info-dumps constantly interfering with pacing, usually using exposition in the form of someone asking a question then getting an answer (and it never stops happening). Then you have rather pointless facts like what bacteria makes someone's vomit smell a certain way as the author goes into superfluous detail about trivial things that don't even need explaining, or things so far removed from the plot they don't need mentioning. I get it, you really thought hard about the story and shored up plot holes, but you don't need to preemptively justify everything, just let it flow.
      As for the goddess herself, she hardly appears to even be a character, and more like a crawling encyclopedia who is only there to tell the MC things. So the story is less like sister of the goddess and more like "I reincarnated as an elf girl with an all knowing goddess by my side"

      I found this story incredibly hard to read. The pacing is incredibly slow to the point that I found it boring. I love the concept behind the story though, I really wanted to like it, but several factors made it uncomfortable to read for me. The first was the pointlessly long descriptions of unimportant events. The second was the double spacing between paragraphs. The third was the excessive commentary offered by the author to justify the horribly slow pacing and pointless descriptions of unimportant backstory elements.

      I don't want to be entirely cruel here, even though I only gave 2 stars for the review. The story idea is fantastic and with a few adjustments to the pacing and editing for format the story could be really good.

      Have you ever watched paint dry? Well, me neither until I read this story. You get to watch the paint dry at a speed of 0.25x in all its glory. You get to see paint hardening and slowly getting its structure. Then once it's done and you can finally make out what it is, you see its exactly that. It's a beautiful painting of you making out for the first time. Those precious feelings you felt all return to you when reading this novel. The novel starts off slow but once revealed it's a masterpiece. 

      If you are not in a rush and can handle assiduous strokes of world-building and character development. I guarantee you will love this!

      I wish I could write this well.

      Status: book 2 chapter 50
      Mar 5, 2020


      • Very descriptive
      • Very clear and well done genderbent child protagonist with an adult mind. The author pretty much does all the things right most novels do wrong. Thank you for that
      • Worldbuilding is very solid and well thought out, though I wish it was delved into more than perhaps the history of the fey court and other miscellaneous things.


      • Pace: Pretty much as slow as possible. Like I understand having a slow pace when a lot is going on and the situation's complex, but the problem is it's slowly paced regardless of the situation
      • POV chapters: I am not saying POV chapters are a bad thing. I like them as they usually add more to the story or progress it in a different point of view. 5 POV chapters of the same events with very little new details is the problem. Stuff like that is better handled is a switching viewpoints type of chapter or just a 3rd person narration. 
      • Tangental Details: So by this I mean a lot of the story involves details that have nothing to do with the current situation, and as of chapter 50 I still don't see their relevance.
      • Focus: This one is a little more personal, but there's just not a lot of action in this book. I think there was 1 fight scene that was actually interesting. The others were just including combat as a backstage scenario. The author said that it had a fairly normal amount of fight scenes compared to cultivation novels, but they should realize that cultivation novel chapters are much shorter.
      • Goddess: To be honest, I hesitate to even call the goddess a side character. While she does have a few important points of action, for someone who is in the title and creates part of the initial appeal, she plays very little part in the story apart from helping the MC with his cultivation troubles. Honestly, the other stuff I can forgive and just push past, but this one I can't. The two boys play a more active role than the goddess, which is ridiculous given that the goddess was set up to be a main character of sorts from the start. It is thoroughly disappointing.

      Overall, this story is interesting and has a clear and well thought out plot and world. The lack of action and conflict, as well as extremely slow pace, hurt it.

      •The author does a good job of balancing the slow pace with interesting descriptions. Although normally I dislike switching perspectives from the MC, it's written in a way where you can see the purpose and shows why a character is acting a certain way. 

      With the MC having split but intertwining personalities, they "interact" in a way that is different from other reincarnation novels. The readers can actually see the process of these two personalities merging and it clears the way to show the character development. 

      Along with that, the effort of researching is shown by the different knowledge on topics like myths. This isn't included in a boring way however and can actually be understood.

      Besides the occasional misspellings, this novel is really good if you are tired of repeating plot lines. One thing I would say is that if you pick this up as your first reincarnation novel, some of the comments or "cliches" that are avoided might be confusing.

      I like it a lot, there's a lot of description which is good, but some people would be put off by the slow age pacing, but personally, I find it better, the thing I hate most in stories is constant big time skips

      I love this story.  This is a brilliant story that brings a twist to the whole isekai genre and has some pretty interesting and fleshed out characters.  I can't wait to see what happens next.

      Slow, but interesting, with a lot of world-building. At 24th chapter it still reads pretty well, with no crazy developments. I guess these should come later?



      somehow I can't shake the feeling that the goddess is going to somehow f*** up the main character, just like it was done in Death Mage.

      Status: book 2 chapter 52: unreasonable burdens.
      Feb 2, 2020

      One of the best novels on the site in my opinion. Instead of rushing its story it takes the time to establish the world and the characters. Everything I've read here — emotions, politics, relationships, etc — has been completely believable and not forced in any way whatsoever. 

      Rather than your average web novel it reads more like a proper published high fantasy book, and I guess that is enough to alienate some people here. But for the rest of us it's a rare treat.
