The list is far from complete, but I could probably go on for days. For most of these, I’ve fallen behind in the series and haven’t read all the books. I’ve been busy. 😃

    I would like to recommend the book FORGOTTEN CONQUEROR by Za1d3. Just like KDT, FC features a main protagonist who is NOT a PIG, plus, its FREE to READ.

    It revolves around an ancient wizard who is reincarnated into a different era. Possessing his memories, knowledge and power of the past, he will search for his origins and events of what happend to this world.

    Just like Rezkin, Kaidus is a lot stronger compared to other characters in the book and he tends to hide it. However, when situations arise, prepare to be whooped.

    I will jot down some SPOILERS:

    As a toddler, he obliterated the bandits who attacked the caravan he along with his parents traveled with. Before they attempted to beat and rape his mother who tightly embraced him, he bursted out his magic and popped their blood and organs inside out.

    The seven y/o boy, like a silent assassin in an open area, slayed a monster rampaging around the city plaza and saved, not only the people in the vicinity, but an old knight who put himself in danger following his duty.

    Rejected the proposal from a local lord regarding his daughter should be married with him, for he didn’t want to be “a shackle that chained her.” He insisted to let her have liberty to select what she desired and the future what she deserved.

    The first youngest person and the only commoner ever enrolled in a prestigious Zorin Academy for mages. Due to his appearance and status, most of the students sneered at him, but the always-so-quiet youth didn’t care less of insignificant creatures who were irrelevant to his quest.

    A woman who belonged to high nobility and was the top of her class looked down upon the new transferee seven y/o commoner boy. Filled with arrogance concerned to magic she thought herself was the numero uno, she wanted to teach the boy a lesson. However, what happened was not what she expected. In a mock battle, the unassuming boy’s sheer power instantly crushed her and left the area like it was nothing.

    Curious about the youth’s terrifying strength, the academy’s headmaster decided to put im into a “test” of magic. Being the most high-ranking mage himself across the continent and only few on par with his level across the world, the headmaster ambushed the child with all his might, only to lost his left arm as the little fearless boy retaliated. Then he was convinced that the small monster belonged to the lost rank which in this world only ever described in legends and myths.

    In an alley within one of the city’s district, a group of malicious sons of nobles were torturing a lone helpless little girl. A passerby child happened to stop by and noticed the scene which flared up his rage. He confronted and faught against the boys by letting them felt what they did to the girl, healed the girl’s wounds with his magic and brought her home safe.

    Responsible for the incident, the child was convicted, subjected to a trial and won, but the noble lord who is the father of one of the malicious boys was not convinced and kept on lashing out against the stoic child for he wanted a solid proof. Irritated by the man’s despotic personality, the child obliged and appeased the man by making him experience what he earlier explained as he tore the stubburn man’s entire arm in front of many people.

    An organization operating in the darkness which was responsible of the chaos across the world for many years wanted to recruit the young boy as they witnessed and became interested in his abilities. Upon his refusal, its members resort to violent resistance. Karma is a bitch, the cold-hearted monstrosity flushed information out from them, infiltrated their base operation in the continent and massacred every member including their leader, and left only few who were later captured by the guild.

    A young woman described him as a coward upon seeing him didn’t fought back against the sword training students who ganged up to him, despite her old knight grandfather’s praises on him. She hadn’t acknowledged that the boy didn’t want to get involved with unnecessary conflict. Another young woman became interested in him upon learning the boy’s demeanor as he calmly rejected her lord father’s proposal. Bookstore owners thought of him not a typical child as the boy loved to buy and borrow various books from them. However, unknown to all, including his family, was what he actually possessed: unparalleled magic power, strength and ancient knowledge which cannot be attained in the current era, thereby placing him as the most dangerous person in the world.

    “The land” by Aleron Kong is a great series with 7 books that he’s knocking out fairly quickly. It’s LITRPG genre and is very interesting and addictive
