Yeah okay i'm not liking what i'm seeing here, looked at a bunch of reviews and while i'm not thin-skinned enough to care that the story's filled with rape or creepy shit, there was a spoiler review describing the plotline here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2534423989?book_show_action=true&from_review_page=1 which is really not what I wanted to so.

Especially the fact that everyone's memory is erased at the end of the novel. That's some cop-out shit right there. Obvious and probably necessary but a cop-out nonetheless.

Thats unfortunate lol. I read the review.

What a weird twist haha.
Though hey, if you're looking for something to read, I've been reading a lot of translated/webnovels as of late. Generally lower quality of writing (grammar/language-wise, since a lot of them are translated or have no editor) but a lot more willing to be creative with the plot or go into a lot more detail about things. Two best ones I've read so far are the following:

Lord of the Mysteries

http://novelfull.com/lord-of-the-mysteries.html

Follows the story of Zhou Mingri (though he quickly adopts and uses the name of the person whose body he inhabits, Klein, and you rarely see his name again), a chinese guy who enacts a ritual from a book on Earth that sends him into the body of a guy who shot himself in the head in the setting of Lord of the Mysteries. The setting is cthulhu/victorian era-esque, something I don't actually normally like, and which put me off from reading it for a really long time, but once I actually started I found it was extremely well executed and came with a very compelling magic system.

There are a couple infodumps early on when Klein is training with Old Neil but you can honestly skim through most of those.

It's translated from a Chinese novel, so there are some sayings that are a little weird if you're not used to them, but I found it to be a pretty high quality translation.

I'd say the series is roughly halfway done atm, it gets another 2-3 chapters every day (which will likely slow down when it catches up to the author), and i'm fairly confident in the author's plan for the story moving forward.

Mother of Learning

Follows a moody little piece of shit teenage kid going to wizard school who ends up caught in a time loop. He quickly grows out of his asshole personality and spends a very long time in the time loop. Author sucks at counting, something you'll notice very quickly when he starts actually putting down hard numbers on how much time has actually been spent in the time loop, but that's an inconsistency you can mostly ignore. The writing very quickly picks up once the time loop actually starts, though you'll have about two or three chapters before that happens.

The writing's great, the protagonist quickly becomes very likeable, the setting and the progression of the plot is well-paced IMO, and the story is nearly done, supposed to be finished this month actually. I'd strongly recommend you read this one first, if you read either or both of these series/novels, since it's nearly done and you won't have to end up waiting for any chapters.



U get me haha. Knew youd have something to read.

Who in their right mind would want to be in a sinking submarine? I'll set up shop and got your back on the way back here" Jacob would then try to get to the closest vantage point and cover Crystal's and Butch's escape.

Butch laughs.
"At least I cared enough to check, right?"
"M-maybe someone should check upstairs before we go? You know... could be some drugs, or rich people in those cells we can ransom off after rescuing them?" Gilbert suggests. He then checks the video feed to see if there's any problems with them going up for a quick snatch and run.
"I have a feeling this guy has a lot of victims locked up here." Butch says. "Clear me a path, maybe block any media attention, ill do a quick look."

Butch, strip him before we get to the sub, I'll guard the entrance. See if he has any implants too, we really can't afford to be followed from here

Butch nods.
"You heard the lady." He says, smashing  Morrison with the butt of his gun before stripping him down.
"You got anyone locked up here?" Butch asks the criminal

"We gotta be quick, he, and everyone else on this planet, knew we were coming."

"Jacob, you left the sub first right?" He checks on the com.

"Alright. Crystal, Inigo, youre with me. Were gonna do a quick snatch and grab. Jacob, take over the sub. Gil, see if uou can run a distraction, maybe activate the mortars. This is a hit and run, so we gotta be quick.

Jacob, when youre finished setting the sub, watch the entrance. We will probably need some supressing fire."

"Lets take this guy down."

"This guy is Farking sick." Butch mutters.

"But it looks like we have an easy job here. We just need to avoid some guards and then pick this guy up."

"Gil, think you can upload some stealth schematics into my brain comp? I have a feeling we will need all the edge we can get here."

Butch spits out the water, and grasps around for a towel.

"Cant let the water get into any circuits." He mutters.

"This place has to be related to the bounty right?"

"Were gonna get out of this. We're gonna make it." Butch mutters to himself, as he draws his shotgun.

Keeping a close eye in the celling as she moves, Crystal tries to open the door (and will swap to her shotgun to blow the lock open if it’s locked) while shouting to Gilbert and Montoya, “One of you get those pallets out of the way, we don’t have much time!”
"I got it. Shouldn't take too much time for a cyborg to move crates."  He says, hopping onto the forklift and moving the pallets as quickly as possible.

"Lights are out." Butch says, as he squints, wishing he installed a night vision enhancement when he had the chance.

"We need to get out. I'm not letting them have moonkit." Butch adds, quickly drawing his shotgun and looking to the team.

"Someone tell me something good."

Hey all, I'm still around, but taking on a new position at work and been training for long hours. It will probably be a month or two before I get up to speed with my new job, which means I won't be too active on BHB till after then.
