Summary

He was once a simple boy, drifting aimlessly along with the flow of the world. But one day, he awakened to find himself being different from his usual self, finding himself now hosting the body of a newborn.

He had been reincarnated, that too as the sole prince and heir of the human empire. Now living in a world of sword and magic, filled with fantastical beasts, demi-humans, divine beasts, Goddesses and so much more. Life finally seemed to take a turn for the better for the reincarnated boy.

However, as always, reality had its cruel ways of disappointing him. His parents died shortly after his birth in a war to save humanity, subjecting him to the life of an orphan. All the people vying for the throne turned against him, looking for any and all opportunities to kill him, the last living heir to the throne. Fortunately, he had his aunt, his last living family, who helped protect him by becoming the acting queen but this came with the price of being holed up in his palace till his ‘awakening’ which would enable him to defend himself and survive in this cruel world…

Witness his tale of struggle, of valor, of love, of lust as he goes against his fate and destiny and embarks on a path that would lead him to the very center of the conflict, of the mystery, of the truth that spanned since the very creation of this world.

    I might have been willing to read this if it had a sm*t filter. I just can't do sm*t novels. P.orn exists in the real world, what would I need to read it for?

      If you open your fking eyes- but seriously tho, if you pay attention you would notice the indicators "*" "**" in the chapter that tells you it's a sm*t chapter 🗿

        Of course I see that, but just skipping whole chapters would be confusing as you wouldn't know what's going on. That's why I wished for a way to read everything without the sm*t.

    This story brought back several memories for me, it reminds me of the time when I followed the author in the first hundred chapters there in S. H., where we could curse the bad characters, cry together about the "flags" of s. and play with the author. It was definitely a good part of my adolescence, but I got past reading r18+ novels and stopped reading. I wouldn't say it's the best story, in many parts it has predictable writing, but it was definitely nostalgic to see it here again.

    So far this is the only info I found about this novel "sadly not all my readers are here but there is not much I can do about that. I will slowly share the new. Long story short, I officially terminated the contract of SHK with Webnovel and got back the full right. SHK will go back to being a non-contracted story. Though I will eventually start publishing myself on Amazon KU etc."

      Not dropped, the author changed the site to write on and at the same time rewrote the whole story. But it may never be updated here. Putting in a suggestion for it to be updated but can't say if it will be.

        Rewrote the whole story? Can u elaborate? I've been stacking since ch.470 but now the whole story is getting rewritten?

      • Arthena 9

        Yeah, checked he is currently at 553 so he just caught up. He was not completely happy with the story and felt that he could make it a lot better, so while changing the site he chose to rewrite it too.

        where can you read the rewrite? wanted to reread either way, but reading the old chapters now seems like a waste

      • Arthena 9

        Cant say the name of the site he is writing on, so can't help. You have to use Google to find it.

      • Thespqr1997 8

        The author changed site and at the same time rewrote the story. The last few months have been rewriting and improving the story, but I'm not sure if it will be uploaded here, since I think he has gone past this point now.

    the power system is absolute dogwater you cannot become a true god unless you are born as one mortals cannot go past the fake god realm and all fake gods are ants in front of any true god unless you have divinity which is something only gods can bestow

    • No_AnHh_ 20

      That just clarifies that Gods were brought into existence as they were and are not just extremely powerful mortals like what we are used to see now a days, In my perspective this sort of system is better because it doesn't follow same ol demigod to god to outer god to supreme existence sh*t They are not bad but most novels are unable to milk them And some that do are extremely good like lotm So a reserved power system is way better though they introduced it in a sh*tty way and we here to read sm*t ,got good plot by mistake so we have no right to complain

        It's basically saying mortals will never reach the realm of true God no matter how hard they work which is weird when true gods don't have infinite power so it is possible to reach there strength

      • No_AnHh_ 20

        That's the deal they have infinite power like they play in domain of fate and entire mortal realm is just a chess board for them...
