Reborn: Apocalypse

Reborn: Apocalypse (Volume 1): (A LitRPG/Wuxia Story) by L. M. Kerr

Front Cover


A Time-travel, LitRPG, Apocalyptic story.

If you could turn back the clock and fix all the mistakes you ever made, would you?

For Micheal Care, a swordsman that could only be considered a middling warrior in Humanity's Last Army, the answer to that question would be quite simple.

Yes. A million times yes.

Humanity has fallen, wiped out after being warped away to a new reality, the mystical 7 Layers.

Humanity's goal had been simple. Make it through all 7 Layers and reach Heaven.

Humanity failed.

Humanity died.

Micheal Care's memories have been transported back into his past self thanks to a magical Artifact he found by chance.

He is no chosen savior. He is no divinely picked hero.

Can he change the future? Can he catch up to the mightiest warriors of humanity and surpass them?

My Review 

The main character, Michael Care dies, literally within the first chapter. But don't let that small fact stop you from reading the rest of the book, for Michael gets transported back to his past life, but retains the memories of his lived life—which means he's equipped with foresight, and able to avoid the mistakes that led to his and the rest of humanity's downfall.

I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't short by any means, at around 500 pages, but it flowed well and the pace was frantic, but in a good way. I don't read too many litRPG novels, but this was nicely done for a casual of the genre, i.e. it didn't feel too heavily bogged down with RPG concepts.


I've already finished the sequel and looking forward to the third. For fans of Lit/RPG - you'll love this, and for those not so much, like myself, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Give this a go.
