The Story of Trash of Count’s Family Novel Review

characters in trash of the count's family novel

Trash of the Count’s Family follows the story of Kim Rok Soo who wakes up in a world inside the novel The Birth of a Hero, possessing the body of a minor villain named Cale Henituse, who is initially considered a “trash” member of his family due to his weak magical abilities.

His actions cause the original plot to derail and he becomes involved in many conflicts in the fantastical world with magic and dragons. Cale uses his knowledge from reading the novel and uncovers a devious plot connecting everything.

The novel lacks romance, but the interactions between characters are wholesome. The misunderstandings are a source of humor in the story.

The Laws of Hunting is the second part of the story and is currently ongoing. It is different from the first part but still enjoyable. The First Part, The Birth of Hero, is completed.
