Do you ever say “Ugh, I’m just going to take a day off and binge-read the rest of this story.” That’s what I did, except, after I finished reading “The Nine Cauldrons” yesterday, I wasn’t tired enough to go to sleep. So I managed to find another story called “Hail the King” and binged the entire thing in about 10 hours. Basically, I ended up staying awake on my break for 27 hours… Then I went to sleep and didn’t wake up for another 18 or so hours.
The moral of the story is that I wanted to take a short break and relax, but ended up disappearing for 2 entire days without writing anything at all :(. On the positive side, I feel great, refreshed and ready to write, so there’s that lol.
Also, I would recommend skipping the first book of TNC, and just starting on the 18th chapter of book 1 or the 1st chapter of book 2. If you don’t include the first chapter, then it’s definitely one of IET’s best stories.
“Hail the King” reminds me a lot of “Terror Infinity“, because the MC goes into a Diablo 2 world and becomes OP from grinding there, before returning to his new ‘real’ world… Which is basically just a normal xianxia world imo. Anyway, it’s a really fast-paced story so far, which is why I was able to binge it so quickly lol.
