This is really a top tier book so far. I didnt notice any sort of bad writing quality, but I am also not particulary picky. Since there are only 19 chapters out atm, I cant really judge, but what I can say is, that the chapters are all VERY long. I really love that. They also dont feel stuffed or as if he tries to reach some wordcount, so I am happy. Cant say much about the story yet, but so far its very solid. However, my only negative point with this is that there will be no romance according to the tags, which is actually a shame. I dont need a harem or anything, but a book is just not 5 Stars without romance. Maybe Author can be persuaded to add a romance of some sort? Character design seems solid, they dont all have the same personality and seem to have realistic motivations and stuff. The world background is very nice. I like the whole setting and the explaining of the world is certainly not dry. Some parts about the world are unclear yet, but I assume that the MC will find out or reveal it later in the story. So, all in all, seems like a solid story so far. But for the love of god, PLEASE add romance. Doesnt have to be fanatic or smth, just some playful banter and stuff with a gf so he wont be lonely at the top.


Although at the time of me posting this there are only 22 chapters, I have to say that I have really enjoyed it so far and am excited to see where it goes. 😁 The story follows Otto who has gone back in time to when he first entered the Tower. As a fan of these climbing style novels it has everything I like: overpowered traits/classes, hidden piece collecting, a smart protagonist who makes use of everything available to him, and great battle scenes with the room for a lot of variation. A couple things I am really excited for: Otto training and assembling a team of kickass climbers, and seeing more of the tower that so far the author has only given us a small taste of. One things that slightly worries me: A common pitfall of these style of novels is when the MC + Team start acquiring insane amounts of abilities that in turn makes it hard to remember them / many of them quickly become useless. With the nature of the MCs class (which i won’t spoil) I feel this could get excessive really fast.. but for now i will trust the author! Despite there only being 22 chapters, each of them is meatier than 2 chapters of most books on this site, so dont hesitate to give it a try now! 😁


Okay, okay, let me start off by saying that this was a really pleasant read! :D Let's start with the writing. Absolutely delightful! :D The writing is descriptive enough for me to be immersed in the story and setting, but clear enough for me to be able to understand the concept hehe :D Okay, and then the characters. Most of the characters are really charming, and I gotta say, especially the protagonist hehe! I really really really like a cunning, smart MC who actually plans ahead and who weighs their option before doing something. And then for the world-building and the concept, I'd say it's pretty good! It's pretty easy to digest, and very well-prepared. Added to the library hehe! Will read more after I drop this review! Great work, author! <3


This book is supremely well written. For someone who has trouble writing action scenes, your book is much better then many books on this platform. Many things like grammar and spelling are done very well. One thing would be some logic holes, but they are very small, and don't affect the story. I really hope that you are able to continue updating and adding new chapters, as the first 20 are really great.


This light novel is so decently written and the story is so compelling, that I wish I did not, discover this until a year later and this had way more chapters in it, so I can binge read all of them. I highly enjoy this novel and I think that the author does a really good job keeping you interested in the first chapters to see what happens next. Hook Line & Sinker


This is a story of cunning and smart Mc so I like it. The story development is honestly awesome but the other side character needs more polishing. Aside from that I enjoyed the small drama very much.


This is a good story. Though there are only few chapters so far, but these chapters are written so well. It's interesting. Hope it won't be like those novels who are only interesting and good at the start and became trash later on. I'll add this in my library. Looking forward for more❣️


only 7 chapters so far but they are 7 quite good chapters! the writing is quite good and while the idea isn't completely original I quite like the direction it's going and the execution is fabulous. I would give it a read if you are considering!


So there’s only 7 chapters (while I’m reading this now) but I have been thoroughly enjoyed the story. And i wish for more chapters, so I can binge read them;).


I don't often give reviews, but this story is just too good. The MC is strong and able to plan ahead while not being too smart to stop readers from connecting to him. Good job author


Only 12 chapters so far but they have been as good as my current favorite novel. Hopfuly this novel will be just as good. Can someone recomend somthing like this while Iwait for new chapters?


Right now there might only be twelve chapters while im writing this, but they are all great quality. So far the story has the potentail to be really good as long as the author keeps up this pace of daily chapters and quality. The author is doing really well so far, keep up the good work.


It's nice so far i didn't give it a full 5 starts cause theres only a few chap so far. uhhhhhhhhh......... stupid. word count thingy.......... why does it require so many characters


Honestly I'm quite shocked by this novel, when I was going into it I wasn't expecting anything good. I can never find good original novels on here so when I came across this I was surprised. I was doubting it to be a published novel tbh Just hardly any chapter at the moment which is a shame! (27) Glad its a daily upload though instead of irregular updates that I mostly see with original novels. Hope the author doesn't drop this cause I'll be gutted Anyway, great work author! I found a novel to give my power stones to daily :)


Great book, but Rainbow mage has got to be the best name ive ever heard. imagine being reborn From a powerful mage and to be called the rainbow mage. i mean 😂 best name ever dosent matter if u like the book or not just be enthralled by the rainbow mage.


hope there are regular updates hope there are regular updates hope there are regular updates hope there are regular updates hope there are regular updates


So far, this book has been really good to read. Although the Main Character of this story is ruthless, he's not completely heartless so it makes the Protagonist more realistic. The writing quality is good as there seems to be few grammar mistakes, and has stable updates. The world background is slowly being revealed, although there are mild info dumps, it's to expected for a character who's been reincarnated and knows a lot about the present and the future. The development of the story is good, as so far there aren't too large time skips, and the story only skips parts of the Main Characters life that wouldn't be interesting to read. Even though I've only read 24 chapters, so far this book and the quality of this book is good so far. (I just realized that I made a whole paragraph on a review for a book. Oops... Lol)


5/5 I love the novel. good work author. hope you finish it. the next words are just for the 140 character for review which is annoying. alright that should work


The story is well-written and fun. However, the concept was too similar to Korean novel name "The Novel’s Extra" in the tower settings arc. And probably, I am a fan of that novel, I kept comparing it to this novel. So, I felt this novel is good but it could be better.


Continue with the book .. it has a good future ... dont be discouraged .. readers are On the Way .
