Hey all I’m back with another Korean novel for this week’s Translation Necessary Thursday. It’s Ending Maker Volume 01 by Chwiryong!
Plot: The plot is pretty solid, the top two pros of a game called Legend of Heroes 2 are reincarnated into the bodies of their favorite characters from the game, Jude Bayer and Cordelia Chase (no not that one from Buffy), who also just happen to be engaged, almost immediately prior to the start of the story. They decide to avert the coming apocalypse for their families, and the world, to create a “perfect happy ending”. Honestly I really enjoyed this first volume, it sets the stage for the rest of the series, which I have read, and really creates an interesting world.
Characters: What is very different from most fantasy romance novels is the fact that the main couple sticks together for pretty much the entire story, there are a few gaps but they are very short, and the romance between them doesn’t feel at all overdone despite it being pretty slow paced. Jude and Cordelia are one of my favorite couples in Fiction because of how much they are a true battle couple in comparison to so many other romances like you see in other books. And they never truly separate, they don’t ascend to a higher plane of existence to go galivanting off to become stronger, I’m looking at you Dragon Ball and Coiling Dragon.
Overall: This is a very fun beginning of a very good series by the author of a series I covered years back called Breakers.
For those who like: LitRPGs, Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Battle Couples, Excellent Plot and Worldbuilding.
