Impressive. To put such a new and interesting take on this saturized genre, is surely a feat worth mentioning. Might just be the difference between a hobby and a professional writer? Even then this quality of writing is not normally seen that often on this plattform. I cannot wait to see, where the story takes the protagonist. Great work! Keep it up

Just gonna leave this here for the few who I've noticed having trouble following some aspects of the series. Following this, you will notice that MC, does not seem to have certain 'knowledge' of the future despite the so-called 'going back twice' and 'starting' over. All of this is for a reason, and I will say it here, it won't be answered anytime soon, so you will have to either try and read through the various clues I will post in my chapters and piece together the puzzle over time. Or wait until the story has arrived at that point, I can guarantee that the plot this will be interesting at the very least :) I am a person that does not like to put too many unnecessary words in my chapters, so most times, if people are talking or an important character is saying something it will hold some type of key information or meaning to give context about something, world-building, or a secret. I like giving my readers stuff to ponder over and not spoon-feed them, that way it can create more engagement with the story and readers rather than me saying, 'Bam and that happens because he gives him that spoon which was so obvious in that scene, but I am saying it again because I believe NO ONE ELSE could have noticed it, right?' - this right here that I see many authors doing is no different from treating your readers like children as if they can't figure things out on their own. Another, though the MC has only some 'memories' of a 'certain' life in the following chapters. It is natural as he is but only a human, no human is going to remember what you ate for breakfast 10 years ago, said to your father on this day 10 years or did for the entire day.  With that said have a happy reading guy, story, although is apocalypse biased, has heavy mystery elements and action, just a word of warning to those who don't like either of those things.


As of chapter 30, I'm gonna say that this novel is incredibly frustrating. As far as the plot goes, the synopsis claims that the MC has returned to the past multiple times in order to save humanity, but the author also (in the very first chapter) made the MC choose a mystery option that the entire plot is supposedly based around. And yet, the author has no plans on revealing what it could possibly be. The author then proceeds to shove this 'ooooh cool and mysterious' vibe down your throat. As far as characters go, this is probably my least favorite aspect. One would normally expect that a 'second chance' novel would feature a MC who knows what it's like to be the very last surviving human. But it feels like nothing close to that. MC acts immature, naive, and downright idiotic at times. Because the author didn't reveal what the MC chose as his option, nobody can fully speculate why he acts this way, so the author deserves the flaming he is getting for that. It feels more like the main character is his actual 19 year old self, but received a few snippets of memory from the future. That's it. To sum it all up, the author is trying WAY too hard to implement too many things into this novel, and instead of fitting together like a puzzle, the elements are just tumbling around together without any cohesiveness. I don't think I'm going to continue this novel


Hello all, this is a shameless and extremely bias review done by author to support his new work. This story is rather interesting, you might it to be similar and a bit different compared to the typical apocalyptic reincarnation story. In fact, there is a huge plot twist that's pretty much centered around the prologue, a few of you might even figure it out the very moment you reach chapter one if you read carefully ;) Please don't spoil it for others if you know what it is :) With that said, do enjoy and if you like it and would love to continue seeing it to the end, please do support by voting with power stones, leaving reviews and sharing with your friends.


Honestly, I’ve been struggling to find a novel that has less than 100 chapters written to hold my interests. This novel is definitely able to do just that. I definitely recommend you give it a try! The word count per release is pretty decent unlike some novels on the top charts *cough* it shouldn’t take me two minutes to read a chapter (how are you supposed to make it into a book?!) *cough* Anyways I digress. It’s an overall well written novel that will suck you in. We’ve yet to see much of the system so that’s still up in there air but I’m expecting great things! Keep up the great work author and don’t skimp on that word count ;)


Wow, this story really grabs my attention along with the personalities ofnthe characters and their design. Im very interested in seeing where this going. You have my full suppot shadows finger!!


I like the novel but I'll stop ch 30. Author should read other novels on how it goes, pacing to fast for me, too many things happen short amount of time. Also one thing i hate in novel, they tend to give mc problems/hurdles every now and then, like give him a damn brake i hate it in xianxia/wuxia novels. Thats all i would love to read more but if this keeps same i wont give a shot to read this again


This is a good story and I like it very much and the character is not that dumb too and all the characters have given a good roles and hence what makes the story interesting is when the our mc gained new legacy of space and aurthor thanks for the amazing story and I hope that u will continue the story and people like me will definitely support u so thnx for this amazing story


So far a very good novel. The main character is not stupid or narcissistic thinking he can do it all himself. He understands that if things are gonna go better this time around then he will have to work with others. Side characters are actually interesting and are more to them than just a plot point. Writing is very good. Compaired to some of the other works im used to its kinda weird reading something that i dont have to auto correct what i read.


This has only begun recently, but it has already grabbed my attention, by making me speculate on some of the people, that the lead character has met so far; whereby and how that their actions will have an impact on the coming Apocalyptic events. I am so looking forward to reading more.


It started out with a bit of cliche, but this novel soon took a better more unique turn, haha, author-saman I've already found out that plot twist of yours but I won't dare share it with anyone, you did a really got job at masking it in chapter two haha. I even saw that someone else in the comments had found out. Anyways, back the review, in this story, characters ask questions, they won't go around killing you for just some random reason, every character have a story even the bad ones, the world feels rich enough due to authors writing style and descriptions, and there aren't any useless paragraphs, even when the peanut gallery is speaking their talking about useful content with the exception of those that have only one or two lines meant to add flavor. The supporting characters are as they called, supporting, they aren't useless and weak, even a so-called certain fatty, has his place, his own purpose and motivations, and skills. A fighting fatty :) As for the MC, I like his abilities, I won't go spoiling them here, it's pretty nice to see this kind of ability for a change. Still, while their are good points, there are still some downsides which I think can be improved over time, other than that, author-sama, well done.


You should trust the author's review. Even though the novel has a slow pace, but the quality of the story, character, and the plot will never make you disappoint. If you search for the second chance novel with clever MC, you will fall in love with this novel. This author really need to be blamed for addicting others with his novel.


A very good ascender/tower crawl genre, very much like Reincarnator and others like it. I like this genre a lot and this new entry is pretty good. The story is solid and keeps you guessing so far. Not much to say since it's fairly new and it only updates 1 chapter a day I think, and so far the story is progressing nicely. Verdict: Read When You Can.


Oh my gosh, author-sama! I usually don't leave reviews, I had to make an account just for this book. Damn! How can you capture my interest in so little chapters? So many mysteries, I just can phantom how things will turn, in the end, good work, sir... or mam(The name sounds a bit male-ish thought so I can assume you are a guy)!

I liked how the story is developing by slowly builfing up suspense for the reader and character development for the future. I dont want to spoil so i wont but i suggest reading the auther does a few chapters a day amd it is good


Have read up to chapter 82. I'm giving up on this one. The grammar is bad. The author leaves out random words that change the meaning of the sentence. Constantly uses adjectives in place of nouns. Just plain uses the wrong words...but even leaving that aside, there is NO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT for the MC. Every other character develops as a person, but the MC is completely static. He gets more powerful, and the author EXPLAINS how mature and wise he is. However, he hasn't changed or developed at all since the beginning of the story. I'm done with it.


Starts off well and flows at a nice pace. Good job mate, hopefully you can keep it up, I'll be reading and voting daily. Give it a read :)...


MAGNÍFICO.SUBLIME.IMPRESIONANTE. INVEROSÍMIL. Estas son unas pocas palabras que mi limitada capacidad humana(un simple mortal) humildemente utiliza para describir esta gran existencia denominada ~[Ascenders Rift]~
