A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special

A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special

Usonan is the author of the popular South Korean web novel A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special.

This is the tale of a universe where labyrinths and a place called Shadow universe exist side by side. Desir Arman is one of the last six people on Earth in that future, and like them, they were unable to clear the Shadow Labyrinth before the end of the world. He travels back in time after dying or coming close to dying. Thirteen years ago, he visited.

Desir, armed with the insights gained from looking back on the preceding 13 years, gets ready to repeat his time at Havrion Academy. Desir can use this fresh start to educate his other students so that they survive this time around in the Shadow World.
