    Good Novel. Got no major complaints other than the mc being a little dumb.

    Not perfect but leaves you wanting more. Some people have said that its not the most immersive novel and they're right. It might be because the novel reads a bit too much like a diary in a way other first person POVs don't. Not sure why that is, maybe a little too much tell rather than show at times (more dialogue needed maybe), might be in part because the MC is a little bit dull at times? Regardless though I give this massive points for realism. Often MC gets injured not just in combat but by horse riding too long, forced marches, or hitting his knee against something. Also appreciate how not every 2nd character is female. With the exception of non humans, women are very rare as soldiers and the females we do see in combat are mages. Little things like this make it feel more real to me. MC himself is a bit of an *d**t, I wonder why isn't more cautious at times. But he's not a fool who gets saved by plot armor. He's competent, just a bit clueless at times. A new fav.

        Correct, you already did the calculations and the MC will die of old age around 28,000 years

    Anyone recommend a read like this one? I enjoyed it so much! I scrolled through the comments and saw a few people hating on this for like 1 dumb decision from the MC, mistakes are a part of life. Don't listen to them, it is one of the best novels I have read in a long time! 10/10 would recommend, I wish I could forget and re-read the entire thing again.

    Will the main character get to be a dragon rider ?

      The empire's dragon legion isn't as cool as it sounds, they don't ride real dragons, unless the protagonist finds and tames a real dragon, I don't see it.
