The Alchemist Who Survived Now Dreams of a Quiet City Life

The Kingdom of Endalgia was destroyed by rampaging monsters coming from the Demon Forest.

The alchemist, Mariela, was able to escape almost certain death by using the “Magic Circle of Suspended Animation.” Although it was somewhat inadvertent, she awoke nearly 200 years later, in a time where all other alchemists had died out.

A labyrinth was left where the demons had stampeded through. In this labyrinth, a city formed from what little remained of the Kingdom of Endalgia. Its purpose was to manage the Demon Forest.

In this city, the only remaining potions were decades old and the effectiveness of these potions had deteriorated. This caused the price of potions to increase by nearly 100 times.

Mariela became the only alchemist left in the city able to make potions. This story is about Mariela secretly selling potions while trying to relax and enjoy life in the labyrinth city.

  • Hi, this series should be marked as complete. It ended at Volume 6. Thanks for all the novels!

  • I dont recomend this novel because a simple reason and that reason is that there is some moments that are super tense, gory and of utmost seriousness but it seems that for every person its the moment to do the most childish humor known to men (oh you are ugly, look at him is so bald, etc)

  • We got Nero asking the real questions.

  • The way I understand it, the Citadel City is what was formerly (before the stampede) the capital. It was surrounded by walls, after the stampede ruins of which are still here and there but most have been reclaimed by nature (forest). The former core of the city is now Citadel City.
    I”m sure there is a map somewhere, so if you are really interested perhaps search for a WIKI.

    • Slr, forgot about it and had been reading various other LN’s from here.

      Thank you for your explanation, it makes much more sense and is easier to picture going by how you’ve kindly broke it down to detail. I have to re-read from the start again to make a better sense out of it though, not sure where I stopped so perfect timing.

      Take care and thank you.

  • well that’s another series done and dusted. an ok read overall

  • Finally vol.5. Thanks

  • That thing is good. vol 1 is good, 2 gets better, I have yet to read 3

  • This is perfect to read when you want some light adventure. The story is slow-paced but surprisingly, it fits well considering the genre. Moreover, things are getting more interesting this volume.
    Thank you again for the fast update!!!

  • Volume 3 is out now, am waiting for it to reach here.

  • Thank you for this!! It’s getting more and more interesting. I can’t wait for volume 3.

  • Certainly one of the better ones, at least better than Altina oder Mushoku Tensei, even though the latter is an Isekai.
    However I do agree that the start is very aprubt and the circumstances are not very well explained, I do hope the author will enlighten us as to what led to the whole scenario.

  • Well this is one of my favourite novel. Thx……….:) Good story like it very much

  • Actually it’s really good.

  • Not very good to be honest.
