"In this world, morality is but a thin line away from depravity, and the most captivating tales are often shrouded behind the veil of insanity."

I was just an ordinary guy, living a dull and unremarkable life as an editor.

But when a maniac author killed me for rejecting his novel in a writing competition, I reopened my eyes in a modern fantasy world.

"Hmm? Wait, this world…."

But fate, being a prude little bitch, played a twisted joke on me.

I reincarnated into the very same novel that I rejected for the competition award, written by the very same author who killed me for it.

Not only that, but I transmigrated into the body of a disowned noble named Lucas Morningstar.

Lucas was a minor antagonist in a novel who served as a stepping stone for the protagonist and their allies.


Of all the people, I just had to be reborn as someone who was despised by the main characters the most at this point in the story?

B-But hey, with my knowledge of the future and understanding of the main characters, I can at least live an easy life!


"Yeah, I can work with this!"

Or so I thought until I remembered the ending arcs of the book.

This world is destined for doom!

And not so long after, I started to realize that the novel and the world I transmigrated into might not be as similar as I had originally thought….


[Disclaimer: Caution while reading is advised. Tighten your seatbelts and brace yourself for a bumpy rollercoaster-like journey. Don't blame the Author if you fall from your seat while reading a plot twist. Thank you.]

AN: MC is NOT a villain, so don't expect one.

*The MC will seem a little bit (ok let's be honest, more than a little bit) foolish in the first 30-35 chaps but don't be fooled. I ask you to read till first 50 chaps before deciding to trash-talk the MC because that's where his borderline psychopathic strategist personality starts to surface.

    I got hella curious and searched the author's name up on the WN Website and saw that a) this novel apparently has 416 chapters and b) the author still had activity from commenting on other novels from like a month ago 😭 he's probably busy or something but I think he'll continue writing this later on.

    Guys I'm new at reading novels and I liked this one Can you give me 2 or 3 recommendations like this to read. Thanks

    • Animo 9

      I would recommend you Reverend Insanity, The Joy of Life and Throne of Magical Arcana.

    • iXalibur 6

      lord of the mysteries, shadow slave, I'll surpass the MC(I just started this), apocalypse redux and last but not least, the best novel of all time, breaking bad

    • Daboju 1

      Hey, I would reccomend you read The Authors POV, The novels Extra, Trash of a counts family, and The second coming of Gluttony. They are all pretty similar to this story though the mc's are def much more light hearted. If ur looking for a more evil mc I would reccomend, Kill the sun, Reverend insanity, and Birth of the demonic sword God tho they are more of a different genre.
