This week for Serial Saturday I’ve got a Fantasy story for you all, what you thought I only was going to do LitRPGs? It’s The New Journey of an Old Soul Chapters 1-20 by Vhiyungrang!
Plot Synopsis: The story of a soul seeking new adventure in a new life. A secret wish to find some things he never really found in his old life. Will the universe have other ideas for him again?
Plot: Let me get this out straight away, this isn’t a story for children and it contains some topics and subjects that may make you uncomfortable. I won’t say more than that there are sex scenes (although they add nothing to plot so skipping is completely ok). As for the plot this combines some concepts from Eastern Fantasy (Xuanhuan) into Western Fantasy although if you are expecting Coiling Dragon you will be sorely disappointed. The plot is pretty damn amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed this story’s first arc which is covered in these 20 chapters. This novel is completed just so you are aware.
Characters: Nelah is our main lead, and I find him to be quite enjoyable. The rest of the cast is also quite good as well.
Overall: A solid story, and a must read. That is, if you can stomach some uncomfortable subjects.
For those who like: Eastern Influences, Fantasy, Reincarnation, Awesome Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, or some uncomfortable subjects.
Personal Status: Completely Read.
