This novel is about an assassin who died in an incident like 'god drops flowerpot' and finds himself before an old evil mage. After escaping form the evil grandpa, he strives for a stable life and maybe learn some of the more useful magic tricks in-between. But unfortunately for our MC trouble keeps coming his way, so we, the readers can enjoy a nice action filled story. The story does not feel forced and the decision and actions taken are reasonable. (So it's not just 'Plot armor!' and 'Why do I need reason?') Spoiler ahead! You have been warned! Our MC is not almighty, so he has to work hard for his achievements. At the beginning the story settles down in one location, but afterwards our MC travels around, because 'read the story'. He steals the hearts of some girls while showing off his smart side and rescues some people from sticky situations. While he advances on his path in this new world, he gains trust and makes some enemies. Our typical story of a run-off-the-mill hero. Wait! Maybe not? Yeah, he might have some serious trust issues and he is a bit on the ruthless side, but that doesn't mean he can't be a hero! ... Oh! You mean for a hero he is too calculating, scheming and uncaring? Hmmm, so maybe he is no hero after all. But our MC gets cased, worshipped and schemed against occasionally and from time to time he might get admired, loved and respected (and even stalked by a little adorable creature) so he has his reasons. Sometimes he even has to deal with zombies, unicorns and some undead mages who want to get ahold of him. So the story has a good flow and it never really gets boring. I recommend this novel to those who like antiheroes, many fight scenes, mages and sword fighters, scheming MC, a bit of romance, evil organizations, power hierarchy, companions, adventures and don't have anything against the mysterious backgrounds of a few main & side characters. Please enjoy your time reading!

Jeez, how many Reincarnation novels is Qidian seriously planning to pump out -_- The hypnosis could use a bit of thickening it sounds a bit dry - Wish the translator the best of luck o7

From what I've read so far, I believe that this novel definitely has potential and if it is done right it could be pretty good. So all that's left is to wait for more chapters. I will be changing this review based on how the novel developed. Hopefully it will be a good one.

PLEASE DO NOT CENSOR A STORY!!!! Noone wants to read a story that was cut or censored. You can add warnings or stuff like that but why cut it!?

I liked it in the beginning but the further the story went, the more I hated the story. The character development is stupid as there is no depth to the characters in the story. The supporting characters are laughable and pathetic. It's like the author made them very stupid in order to emphasize the MC's intelligence. The MC's character is inconsistent and the timeline twists are a petty excuse for prolonging the story.

Pretty good start. Interesting premise. I like that the mc will have magic and physical prowess. Also realistic that after two years he can only produce a small fireball, I like that. We'll have to see where this goes.

I'v reed about 53 chapters... full of nonsense... every chapter is full of gibberish, pointles explanations and so on... Very weak story develpment, very week character design, World build hmm lets not talk bout that there is no such thing in this novel.

I really like the MC of this series; he's actually level headed unlike other novels where the author describes the MC as a genius, level headed and such but they're just really lucky they didn't get murdered If you like a badass MC with supporting characters with actual substance then this series is for you

The story starts out fairly interesting with a uniquely mature protagonist, finding his place in a new world and it's pretty interesting for a couple of chapters but after a certain event where the protagonist kills someone he shouldn't have and needs to go on the run, the story gradually becomes stale, the chapters become more long winded and I can't really get into anything because the story and characters seem to have become nearly completely aimless, I even skimmed like half of the chapters I've read and I never felt like I missed out a single thing. The protagonist has had completely no development since early on, and while the side characters do develop, they're very basic characters through and through, nothing special to see there. Everything always somehow just works out for the protagonist and there are plot holes as ridiculous as one chapter an arm of the protagonist get broken and the next it's like the author completely forgot... The worst thing about the translation is that htere are often pov changes that happen without any indication, we're literally talking about 1 paragraph being from mc's perspective and the next from another's, there's no transition at all most of the time. It's quite ridiculous.

Character Design is really not bad also the story is interesting world background is not cleared for me yet , story Development is what make it interesting, those who who like TEM will also lile this story, until now there is no harem (ch 17) which is cool for me , also there is a possibility that the mc will love (0.9%) i don't think that there is a problem with the translation quality, just hoping for someone to clarify the classes the ranks of magicians and warriors. Looking forward for the storyline developing. What i like about this story - appears to be realistic about the human nature (opinion). - the story have potional (opinion). - the mc is cool af (fact) - the mc is a malble character. - the idea of the settings of this story. When we will see a glossary for the novels ???

The translation quality is amazing, the stability of the updates is also great...However, the novel itself su.cks, it started well with a martial arts Mc and lots of amazing fighting scenes, but the Mc literally doesn’t approve the slightest bit and Iv’e read over 300 chapters, he’s still weak, always gets pulled in a mess and doesn’t even notice it, in fact, it became a novel that just keeps on talking about 18th century politics and it pisses me off soooo much... The Mc is literally useless, he’s not even an assassin, the name of the novel itself has to change... the story is sooo damn slow at developing that I’m literally thinking of dropping it before becoming crazy..In conclusion, if you love reading novels about pathetic Mc that can’t even control their fate and also don’t try to do so, instead they always get the short end of the stick, also if you want to read a story that literally doesn’t advance in its development, always stick in one place yet full of political useless freaking damn battles, then be my guest.

Ehh I think I’m done reading this story it’s not bad but just far too frustrating an annoying. it’s really filled with contradictions say one thing then do another your reincarnated from earth in a world where those who can use an do magic are pretty much worshiped and everything else is pretty much looked down on and you just so happen to be able to do physical an magic abilities yet are so against magic because you are the best assassin of all time from earth you would think someone like this would realize it can help him be more adaptable and flexible when confronting enemies dosent help the mc can’t keep a secret to save his own life.

I don't usually write reviews but I felt like this novel wasn't getting the attention that it deserves. The story has character development, plenty of action and alot of violence and no haren(so far) if I had to say anything bad then it would be that the MC is kind of a hypocrite when it come to killing people overall its a great story that is worth the time

This is has made my top 3......of regrettable choices. Literally the worst character design, plot, and world build. The king 🤴🏿 is a great day to god for me and....f your 140 characters

I really really like this novel. The beginning phase were so intriguing and make me curious on what might happen... but then romance route came so early whyyyyy really why? The killing was good and everything in between compliments it all. But why susanna? The reasoning after meeting susanna became ridiculous, niya sometimes there and many times not when in fact she is included in their first party, the princess became nonexistent too like really why? The romance looks so trying hard. But I still read cause it might be good again but then I read other reviews who already finished this novel and I was at lost what should I do? So gonna read this again after lots of chapters come up.

It's a good novel. P.S. - I've started to write wiki for the novel. I hope you guys check it out. https://assassins-chronicle.fandom.com/wiki/Anfey Pros: 1) The story does not try to make the MC best in the universe unlike other cultivation novels. 2) The romance is sweet which is described in every few chapters. 3) The heroine is not useless whose only role is to motivate the MC but is actually powerful enough to help the MC in various situations. She is actually much powerful than MC till now and is considered top genius. 4) There are no stupid 'young lords' who try to kill MC and in turn gets themselves killed. 5) The MC is not 'charming' that every girl he meets will fall in love with him at first glance. Cons 1) The translation quality is not good. 2) Many things are messed up like nobility titles (sometimes the MC is Duke, sometimes earl and sometimes even baron), power levels etc.

When will this novel be completed? Any guesses? Getting impatient to learn the end. Even patience has its limits. Can't wait for the next releases. truly an amazing novel.
