The Godsfall Chronicles TGC
The nuclear holocaust which caused the collapse of the Old Times on Earth should have wiped out all human life on the planet. Yes, the gods set up their beautiful Elysiums to provide sanctuaries for their chosen, but by all rights everyone outside the elysian lands should’ve perished long ago. Yet somehow, human life still managed to persist, even in the deadly, mutant-infested wastelands. Cloudhawk was a young scavenger who dreamed of being as free as the hawks in the skies, yet seemed destined to live out his life scrounging for scraps in the wasteland ruins. Fate, however, is ever-fickle. A chance meeting with a ragtag group of mercenaries changed the trajectory of his life, bringing him into a world with mutants and metahumans, demonhunters and godslayers, and even gods and demons. Cloudhawk would find his own place in a world that was far greater than he had imagined, find his own path between the zealous light of Sumeru and the whispering darkness of the Abyss… and one day, he would find that even gods may fall.
What Others Say
The writing is well done, so is the translation. It is a "futuristic - apocalyptic - fantasy" set in the near future where humans are struggling to survive, where mutant humans and beasts are rampart, and where one lives from hand to mouth. At least this is through the MC's eyes, and because he is still like a "frog in a well" at first and does not really know anything yet. The start is okay and intense and if you keep reading, you will be lost in it like me. Recommend!
RWX was not kidding when he said that this was a web novel very close to print quality. Even considering the fact that some of the nuances might be lost on us via translation, it still doesn't detract from how amazing this novel flows. It doesn't constantly refer some trope to rake in readers, it doesn't rely on crappy tropes to progress the story, and the characters aren't 1-dimensional 'I'm a young master' or 'I'm someone whose face you slapped' characters. I'm pleasantly surprised at the lack of typical tropes that CN novels are known for, and I can't wait for more chapters to come. It feels like I'm reading an account of a character from Fallout, except darker. Definitely worth a read!
