Have you ever wished you exactly knew how to accomplish your dreams? Not feeling the slightest doubt anymore? Being aware at any time how every choice, action and decision of yours affects your future? That's what happened to Jake Wilderth, a procrastinating young man without ambition. When a mysterious silver spaceship, popping out from nowhere, delivered to each Earthling a bracelet containing an AI introducing itself as the Oracle, their destiny changed. From a boring uneventful life Jake began to strive for greatness, treading his Path over the dead bodies of many. What a blessing it would have been if he was the only one profiting of such a gift! But when everyone became equal to face the future, he soon realized no gift comes for free.. Just a warning. Volume 1 sets the atmosphere in a Earth slowly degenerating into chaos and can be considered as a big prologue. It is slow and not as rewarding for the readers than mainstream stories on this website. If you can push through it will be worth it. For some real action you need to wait chap 27. =================================== NB: English is not my native language and despite my best efforts there can be some mistakes.

Never before has a book made me feel the need to write a review, however this one is different. The writing quality is excellent, surpassing the best Qidian has to offer and is up at the top with the likes of Supreme Magus and The Lord of the Mysteries (it’s been a long time since I’ve had to look up the definition of a word and it is an exciting prospect with this book). The story/world building is intriguing, reminiscent of Terror Infinity in premise but with its own uniqueness which makes it captivating to read. The characters are interesting as the author does his/her best to replicate all the human intricacies. I hope that this review will serve as encouragement for the author and other readers to persevere with this story; the only reason it is not in the top 15 is because not many know of it (surpasses plenty of the garbage up there like My Vampire System for example). I hope you continue to write this book author, for my sake lol.
Not a fan of writing reviews, but since I feel that this novel doesn't have the exposure and support it deserves and the author is sooo nice I decided to share my short humble opinion. First of all the world building is very well made, it has similarities with the ultimate evolution. Nevertheless it's original, has a lot of potential and it's slowly but steadily presented. There's a long introduction delving a lot into the mc's personality and worldview. For some people maybe that's a reason not to read it. For me it wasn't boring at all. I could even empathise with him occasionally. The explanations and building of his personality maybe were were a bit rough and forced in some cases, but it didn't make it unpleasant and the author said he would improve his first chapters so maybe this will not me the case in some weeks. I am not a native speaker, I found some small and not important mistakes, but not many and they didn't make my reading experience bad. All in all I would definitely recommend it! Let's just hope that the author keeps this high release rate and quality :)
Here is a summary of how the Oracle works, which I will complete as the story progresses. You'll also find here Jake's stats and skills ( and other characters if you ask me) in this section, with the chapter number to which they correspond.
The Oracle device has two main functions: Status and Guidance.
*Guidance= Prediction, Shadow Guide and Coaching
-Prediction: Give a path to achieve what you want.
-Shadow Guide: Is a self-double showing how to achieve the Path.
-Coaching: Shows the rewards, drawbacks and risks associated with a Path. May also present opportunities in the form of "Missions" or "Quests".
*Status= Stats+ Skills proficiencies
There are two different statuses= Aether Status and Body Status. Both status combined give the Real Status.
Body Status= Attributes of our body, depending on the Genetic Code.
==> It's a raw value, like "mass", that doesn't change with gravity, unlike "weight". It corresponds to the quality of the body.
The attributes are: Strength(S), Agility(A), Constitution(C), Vitality(V), Intelligence(I), Perception (P),
The average is 10 points for a full-grown man.
Aether Status= Attributes of the Aether, depending on the Aetheric Code.
=> The Aether is pure energy preceding and present in everything.(Aether>Energy>Matter)
The Aether level/density determines how matter and energy interact, via a coefficient. On Earth, the average is 10 points also to make a symmetry with the Body Status, but the coefficient is 1 (so divide by 10).
Body Status*Aether Status= Real attributes
-On Earth: Body stats= Real Stats, because Aether coefficient=1 (=10 Aether points)
-On other planets the Aether coefficient can change, like the gravity and so on...
