Fushin no Kami (Undying God) is a great short series to pick up if you like the Isekai genre and like the concept of the protagonist using his past life knowledge and the knowledge left behind by the world's ancient civilizations to rebuild the technology lost to time. It has 7 Volumes as it's main story as of this writing and seems to have concluded in that 7th volume. I gave the series an overall 8 because it is a genuinely good and overall fun read. There are some wonderful characters, the illustrations are great, and the story is well thought out. I think that it has some flaws but nothing really worth mentioning. To me, the score I have feels fair as I look back and gauge how enraptured I became in it's story or how often I found myself wanted to come back for more as compared to the plethora of other books or light novels that I read. It was a story I was very interested in seeing the conclusion to, especially when I heard that Vol. 7 was the last one. I did, however, prioritize other works over this one; works that I have rated higher. There are times where it felt more like a to-do item than a genuine desire to hurry up and find out what's next towards the end of the series. I think it is good that the author didn't drag out the series because the ending felt generally good where it was. I think they should be proud of this work and I hope they one day get their own Anime adaptation. P.s. Read the afterwards, it is worth it and somewhat related to the story. At least read the one in Vol. 7 as it is the final wrapup and a look in the years after the books final chapter.
