Hi everyone, I’m back with another Korean novel for this week’s Translation Needed Thursday. This is Ending Maker Volume 01 by Chwiryong!
Plot: The plot is quite solid, the two top pros of a game called Legend of Heroes 2 are reincarnated in the bodies of their favorite characters from the game, Jude Bayer and Cordelia Chase (not not Buffy’s), who also got engaged, almost immediately before the story begins. They decide to avert the coming apocalypse for their families and the world, in order to create a “perfect happy ending”. Honestly, I really enjoyed this first book, it sets the stage for the rest of the series, which I’ve read, and really creates an interesting world.
Characters: What’s very different from most fantasy romance novels is the fact that the main couple stay together for pretty much the whole story, there are a few gaps but they’re very short, and the romance between them does not seem exaggerated at all. despite being quite slow. Jude and Cordelia are one of my favorite couples in Fiction because of how much of a real fighting couple they are compared to so many other romances like you see in other books. And they never really separate, they don’t ascend to a higher plane of existence to gallop to become stronger, I’m looking at you Dragon Ball and Coiling Dragon.
Overall: This is a very fun start to a very good series by the author of a series I covered years ago called Breakers.
For those who like: LitRPGs, Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Battle Couples, Excellent Plot and Worldbuilding.
Not for those who don’t like: All of the above.
