Powerful beings are in constant wrestle for power. These beings plots in hopes that they could assert their dominance and rid of the spell that has saved this world. Against people who take on the role of monsters.
Enjoyable, but very very needlessly tiring to read.
- The romance is very tragic but cute, and well developed.
- MC is a broken man, but not the juvenile way going angsty and cringy, he stays a good person.
- Characters are developed outside of MC.
- The timeloop is very good as an underused idea. Even if here it's more about parallel timelines than timeloops.
- Long story, I like long stories.
- Confusing chapters, not only because we have abrupt change of timelines, but even of character pov without sometimes even naming who it is. There is no reason for that, it's headache inducing for nothing.
- The long chapters of introspection from MC while he pities himself endlessly. It's good to have non action chapters, but sometimes it's way too much.
- How magic and the sigils work aren't explained, in fact, there is paradoxically a lack of explanation on the systems.
- Same thing for the world, adding to the confusion : I guess a map would have been way better.
Initially I loved this story. Beyond the strange grammar at times that made me believe this person hadn't learned English as a native tongue, it was just.... new and enjoyable.
However, over time I lost interest in it. And while my reason is pure bias, I genuinely grow tired of authors doing it. Multiple timelines. Time travel. I hate it. It doesn't add anything to the story, it makes it confusing. And while I could keep up with it, I'm just not a fan of it in general. I find it a hindrance more than an asset.
And most often, the author's using it, aren't even capable of using it properly. The author of this fic is better at attempting then most, but still not capable enough that I think he/she should be incorporating it. Going back to the past at the beginning, thats where the timeline shenanigans should have ended.
But no, it only got worse. By the time I finally quit, the MC had traversed three different timelines for various reasons or another and I was just tired of it even before then and was hoping it would quit. But it seems the author is making this a permanent and continuous aspect of his tale. I hate it. I loathe it. I'm dropping this story because of it.
It was a good story initially. But I just don't feel like the author is good enough to be incorporating time travel. Even professional's to me, screw it up. This story didn't need it and by using it, the author pretty much made several amazing plot devices and ide characters effectively useless, and introduced far weaker characters as replacements.
The story uses a variety of metaphors to describe the events surrounding the protagonist. If you enjoy novels with a bit of mystique to the writing with generous yet simple detail this book might just be great for you. The beginning definitely pulls you in, though it can be a hit or miss with the direction it first pulls you through, you'll see what I mean if you read it yourself. Definitely a ride to enjoy.
The reviews that say the story is needlessly heavy and grammatically awkward are correct. Lots of, “He was a man who lost much and felt the heat of a thousand dry windstorms.” Really trying too hard to be artful and testing a readers patience. The story.... drags... on... while... author... describes in metaphor... ugh.
So, I love the genre, and read stories by the metric ton, and can tell you that this won’t be a “fun” read. But, if you are extremely patient and/or live for artistic metaphor, you may love this story.
This is a really entertaining read, but I’m being spoiled by the release pace, feed me moar pls.
This story is about a bittersweet romance+twisted and madness
This story is not for the kind and weak heart, this story not for wish fullfilmen seeker. Becaus its will tire your heart from the madness, constan reset and the MC is not fighting for glory, rich, or become a god**n god, he just want to survive
However, I like this story, because the MC maybe powerfull, but the human touch on him never lost
he can be sad, he can be angry, he can be tired, he can be lost, ect, and every emotion have logical reason
not like some wuxia, xianxia or other xxx bull****
the story at the beginning was very good and continued with a high quality but with the passing of the chapters the plots can be seen the difficulty of reading due to monologues covering various chapters that is repetitive and the difficulty of showing how that world works and an explanation to the powers other than that I don't see any major problems this was the best story I've ever seen being written by an amateur on these sites with care without haste and unnecessary appeal was well written has its problems but it is a really well done work. (After all the quality of amateur novels are always quite questionable that sometimes do not even describe the character and his characteristics and there are many drastic changes in personality) I hope that the author will improve his failures in future writing a great quality of him would be the story narrative which immerses you in that background, the first arc was very good as we don't worry so much about the powers and other things I wish the author good luck in future writings to see a real commitment in this story.
The story is pretty good but the it sometimes get confusing, theres also some grammatical problems but you could just ignore that, I've read this from start to finish and I can only describe everything as a roller coaster of... emotions. Yes emotions, you will like the heroine at first then hate her then like her and so on.. shes a psycho
Reading this novel made you suffer, just like the MC who is suffering constantly,...... But heres the catch, what do you expect when you read a novel titled Bleak Walker?
I am truly enjoyed this novel which trample all my hate on anime tropes, it made me wish for MC happiness more than any other suffering MC that I know.
P.S : chapter 206 is the best suprise, You'll never see it coming ~~~
The story is very well made and intricate. The main character isn't powerful or lucky. He tries his best to struggle against fate. The story is quite gloomy but the world is very interesting and the mysteries are intriguing. The writing is very well done with only a few typos
