Synopsis

A prince sent into exile, without the means to fight back.

A young man trapped in an unfair world, without the status to bring about change.

Combined, they will have both means and status.

Armed with advanced knowledge from a strange world, will Prince Corco be able to cut through the injustice, regain his birthright and bring enlightenment to the country of his ancestors to create a paradise of true peace, equality and prosperity?

“Okay, first step: Let’s make some brandy.”

…that’s a maybe then.

Hermit’s Note: My take on the kingdom building genre, which often suffers from weak characters, low stakes and contrived challenges. Buildup will be slow, with Book 1 focused on business managment, Book 2 focused on a battle for succession and only Book 3 getting into the depths of kingdom building. There’s plenty of inventions before that point though, so if you’re here for the clever use of modern tech you’ll find quite a bit even early on.

Updates three times a week.

      Status: chapter 124 – perspectives
      Dec 13, 2019

      This is the only novel in the Kingdom Building tag, that is actually about Kingdom Building. I love army/kingdom building, economy driven business running novels. This novel has met all my expectations so far except one, the main character is just so wishy washy. 

      Or in harsh words, he is such a pu**y, he is just not ready to kill even those who deserve to get killed. 

      Though, I have seen some improvements in his personality in the 100 or so chapters I have read. 

      Overall, 5 stars. Great read for Kingdom/Army Building fans.

      If you like Isekai and and transmigrations this novel takes a slight different route which makes it much more appealing to me. But what is the true gem in this is that Corco's ventures with his men and they're plan to follow his pioneering dream. The title does its job to be self explanatory but its the great pacing that this story holds that does the trick on hooking me in as a proper fan.

      This is a gem of a story and is well worth giving it a read.

      Overall:

      Pacing has thus far been great. 

      The story itself has been interesting. Most of the story thus far (which is prior to the third book), has been setting the stage for a potentially grand kingdom building later while maintaining a story that pulls you in.

      Characters are pretty good. During the first book, they are excellent. Probably the only minor complaint I might have is that the second book introduces a lot of characters that feel like they are going to be around for a while in prep for later. Unfortunately, this also leaves little screen time for characters at times. As I said, this it's just a minor complaint, as even the limited screen time is enough to make interesting characters.
