Ancient Godly Monarch

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

In the Province of the Nine Skies, far above the heavens, there exists Nine Galaxies of Astral Rivers made up of countless constellations interwoven together. For Martial Cultivators, they could form an innate link with one of the constellations, awaken their Astral Soul, and transform into a Stellar Martial Cultivator.

Legend has it that, the strongest cultivators in the Province of the Nine Skies, were beings that could open an astral gate every time they advanced into a new realm. Their talent in cultivation was such that they could even establish innate links with constellations that existed in a layer higher than the Nine Layers of Heavens, eventually transforming into the heaven-defying and earth-shattering power known as the War God of the Nine Heavens.

Qin Wentian is the MC of this story. How could a guy, with a broken set of meridians, successfully cultivate? There were countless Stellar Martial Cultivators, as there were countless constellations in the vast starry skies. What he wanted to be, was the brightest constellation of all, shining dazzlingly in the vast starry skies.

A decent read so far. Only recommended on binge, when there are tons of chapters translated.

Instead of constant arrogance and being offended = direct killing, the author has chosen something akin to the batting system, 3 strikes and you're out. MC isn't bloodthirsty and the author gives him a soft side to balance it out. Though the whole 'being underestimated by older people' is constantly thrown in whenever a new power shows up and every one of them are arrogant that act as fodder to fuel the MC to justify... more>> his actions.

With companions, you get a balanced party feeling that makes it enjoyable with more characters exchanging and growing together. Only the team fights are truly great text in this novel.

Disappointingly, there is a 'trend' in how the MC grows. You rarely see him get defeated, unless it's to obtain some sort of legacy/chance/inheritance, instead, the author 'delays' the final confrontation and allows the MC to gain significantly in a short amount of time before killing off the challenger.

Romance wise, good female lead, but the MC keeps hitting on every chick he ends up on a good standing with. Literally a perverse version of Kirito from SAO were he won't just end up with best-girl. Have to be grateful that we see other romances for other couples that are friends with MC, this balances out my distaste in harem. Hopefully we don't get a realized version of KiritoxLeafa with MC getting it on with his foster-family's sister.

Cultivation, unique but lots of spoon-feeding that it feels like a 'game'. Just condensing an 'astral spirit' is similar to obtaining a 'Job class' that instantly delivers you all techniques/magic to you and all it requires is training in them yourself.
More spirits = more techniques/magics. The layers to which these spirits come from is like which job tiers they come from and of course MC gets all the OP choices.

Plot wise, by the time you read up to the latest translations, you'll easily reach the same theory as most of us. Ancient Godly Monarch -> Ancient Grand Xia -> Fallen clan -> Foster Family -> OP bloodline -> secrets == Winkwink.

I really can't imagine a decent further plot after the MC's origins are solved, yet the author keeps throwing in obvious hints that state the MC will eventually leave this great empire.
But as for why, most likely damsel in distress is my best bet. <<less

Not crazy good but definitely not bad either. What baffles me is the one star reviews with little to no reason other then they disagreed with the people who gave it a five star review. Even though they themselves have only read 40 or so chapters. Like everyone else says there's a strong start and it almost immediately heads into generic mode after that. That said the characters are well fleshed out nothing feels very forced and the world building is also a plus with a cool cultivation mechanic.... more>> If you looking to add a novel to you already long as hell list I definitely recommend this. <<less

Don't really get the hype this series is getting. Sure the starting was somewhat good but hardly something for which I would shout like a fangirl.

People are praising the series for its so called unique cultivation method. Just because the cultivation involves constellation you would call it unique. People really loves to misuse the word "unique". Nope. There has been nothing new or unique in the story so far. Battles have been boring and author has shown no unique abilities for the characters. The techniques have impressive... more>> names but in all honesty they are boring.

So far the storyline has been pretty generic. Really nothing new. Same cliché of girl refusing to marry MC as he is trash. It will be followed by MC showing his awesome capabilities. And then the event of MC showing his epic side takes a dark turn by the arrival of trouble for his clan/sect. Sounds familiar? Totally generic.

Then there is the descent of stupid villains who tries to kill MC and when MC is about to kill them they use the most stupid dialogue "If you kill me then my clan/sect would kill you." Just what you would expect from author of PMG. <<less

Sigh what do you expect from the author of PMG, the novel starts out fine for a few chapters then it begins, this author is famous for his Fight + arrogant + fight + arrogant cycle, I cant believe he somehow manage to messed up a perfectly amazing novel within 50 chapters, the cultivation system is amazing but the cycle of arrogant villains and repetitiveness begins after just 20 chapters sigh.

This novel has one of the strongest beginning I've ever read. Review as of Chapter 34. This feels so different from PMG, especially the story building part and the MC's personality. I was honestly surprised to find that they were written by the same author. Other than the unique cultivation method, the interactions of MC and his family members are well thought out, and emotionally-packed to deliver a power punch. I always smile when I read the interactions between MC and Qin Yao. Not only that, this MC doesn't get... more>> ridiculous powerups, plot armors are almost non-existent. Sure he could defeat the Ye Lang guy whose cultivation was higher than him, but it doesnt feel forced, unlike ATG or fake, like the MC in WDQK.

Although I wanted to say the story is somewhat predictable, there are always new elements of surprises mixed in. Divine inscriptions, Astral Memory Beings, Star-shaped object. And whenever you thought a solution arrived for his predicament, he lands himself in another predicament again. This novel is a rollercoaster ride of non-stop action, which is what i like in xianxia. This MC isn't brainless, in fact he's calm and cool, and intelligent to know when to step back. Rating as of now, 5/5 <<less

This novel started okay-ish, but I'm at the point where I can't muster interest anymore.

Basically the story is full of things that don't make sense if you start thinking about it for 5 seconds. There are many examples, ... more>>
Spoiler

for instance why did the MC have to go to an academy ? It's been made obvious that he can cultivate on his own with no issues whatsoever, and on the other hand joining the academy keeps bringing him endless trouble.

Also in the beginning the bad guys lay a trap then come to the MC's clan and order them to go to the place where they want to trap them, and add "you better come if you're not cowards". So the clan goes there to prove they're not cowards... which is a reasoning I would expect from a 5 year-old.

At some point we have some sort of mandatory annoying/rude fatty sidekick who drops out of nowhere and instantly becomes the MC's friend, although it feels completely random and artificial. That guy will then follow the MC everywhere and keep leeching yuan stones from him. He also gets some shitty weaponsmith to become his apprentice and call him master, even though the MC has just started making weapons, and then that guy named Francis will keep leeching off of the MC too, like he has caught on to the fact that this guys was the hero of the novel.

Then the academy who was supposed to be "good guys" and who were desperate to get the MC to enroll will actually turn out to be full of bad guys who will try to kill the MC while the "good guys" twiddle their thumbs.

Right now I'm at chapter 45 and the MC is about to really enter the academy but guess what there's a tournament, which is such a cliché honestly.

Every girl he meets is super pretty and there are mandatory "four town beauties".

There's a random puppy which appears after MC summons some sort of friendly demonic ape and passes out, which means the puppy is probably the ape but don't ask me how apes are related to dogs. Of course the puppy is a pervert who will be described fondling girls and diving into their breasts everytime the MC meets a girl. I mean maybe if I was a teenager I would like to read about it, but...

[collapse]

I would put up with all that bullshit and ignore it if there was something else to keep me interested but it's all just a bland mix of things that I've read elsewhere before. The cultivation is a bit of a mix between douluo dalu and classic Qi cultivation. Mc doesn't need to learn cultivation scriptures because he has a convenient magic memory fragment thing so he gets all those automatically and more, yet he still needs to go to that academy... for some reason.

So in short, this novel is frustrating to read because of the lazy writing. <<less

Novel started with an interesting plot but then it started to get messed up.

Generally a author would start on with world building and introduction of various things about the story and characters then comes the time for enemies to make their move but this novel starts with very little info and just within 20 or so chapters the whole story gets messed up. Arrogant enemies starts to appear and relentlessly tries to destroy and kill the MC and his clan. I just feel like I was thrown in a battlefield.... more>>

I just don't get what's so unique about this story. It's the same freaking generic cliché story. If it's about cultivation technique then Stellar transformations too have cultivation technique where he freaking creates his own world. Just like people said what can you expect from the author of PMG. <<less

All right, I think the hype some people give this novel is too much, and similarly those criticizing it so harshly seem to be coming into the story with a bit of bias towards the author.

The author of Ancient Godly Monarch is the same person who wrote Peerless Martial God. As anyone who read the reviews posted on this website regarding the latter novel will know, PMG had potential but ultimately devolved into a horrifying copy-past mess. My exasperation and anger with Peerless Martial God can clearly be... more>> seen in the rant I left on the novel's page. As such, I went into Ancient Godly Monarch with an especially healthy amount of skepticism.

However, after reading up to the latest chapters (172 at the time of this review), I must say that despite the disaster that is PMG, it is best to keep a more open mind when looking at AGM- to be fair, PMG was said author's first webnovel (if I remember correctly). It stands to reason that if the Chinese readers became as frustrated with the author as the rest of us have, the author must have gotten a nice heaping pile of complaints and criticisms.

Thankfully, it would seem that the author has taken at least some of these complaints to heart, because AGM has marked improvements compared to his previous novel. With the author's track record, it is hard to say if AGM's quality will be maintained as the story goes on, but for these first ~200 chapters at least I think that the overall quality of the story is surprisingly good.

Is Ancient Godly Monarch one of the best or most well-written novels out there? No. Novels such as Immortal Executioner, Jiang Ye, The Way of Choices, and I Shall Seal the Heavens are, at least in my personal opinion, on a much higher tier. That being said, Ancient Godly Monarch's currently translated chapters shouldn't be any worse than novels like Against the Gods and Martial God Asura in terms of quality. It is an enjoyable read when you want to pass some time.

Improvements in AGM include:

Spoiler

1) Word choice and repetitiveness have both improved in this novel compared to PMG, meeting an acceptable standard for this genre. The wording is good and the tone is all right, if slightly dull. What I mean by that is it can sometimes feel as though there is a layer of mist between you and the emotions of the story, like you can't entirely feel everything that is happening. This isn't too bad or noticeable at first, but if you binge many chapters in a row you may start to notice such a feeling.

2) Characters feel more human and 3-dimensional. Antagonists do generally follow the arrogant young master mold, but I think that the level is bearable, moreover so far there have been far fewer such characters as well. The side characters are decent. They are not especially prominent or anything, but they have interesting personalities at least, so it's nice to see them when they appear.

3) The MC's personality is better compared to the MC of PMG. Qin Wentian is more even tempered, less arrogant, less preachy (thank god), and has a kind heart. For now at least, he is a decent guy who values friendships and has a nice dose of hatred for his enemies, which I can appreciate. Besides that, the manner in which he powers up is more balanced and acceptable. He doesn't rise too many levels too quickly, cultivation makes more sense and feels understandable, and you get the impression that he does a fair amount of work to achieve these things.

4) Although this could also be considered a revenge orientated story, the reasons for antagonists to target the MC make far more sense. Rather than having the antagonists or MC stupidly provoking each other for no apparent reason at every possible turn, the reasons for provoking the MC are virtually all tied to his family. The reasons for them being targeted have not been fully revealed, but from what we've seen they are enough for Qin Wentian's enemies to want to target him. Seeing as how he is the person with the greatest potential and strength among the younger generation, it makes sense that they want to get rid of this potential threat, given the grudges between them and his Qin family. Is this the best and most exciting excuse? No, not really. It is however, a decent enough reason, especially when compared to the ridiculous reasons the antagonists used to attack the MC in PMG.

5) The cultivation is actually really interesting. If the author can continue to explore and expand this point sufficiently, that alone may be enough to carry the story for me. It isn't the most profound system ever, so if you prefer something deeper I would instead recommend one of the quality novels I mentioned above. That said, the concept is quite intriguing and isn't too hard to understand. If you aren't interested in lengthy or philosophical descriptions of cultivation, preferring to keep things a bit simpler, then this is a good choice.

[collapse]

On the downside:

Spoiler

With an MC driven by revenge and taking into account the writing style of the author, it's safe to say that Qin Wentian will kill a fair amount of people, and most of his reasons for doing so will be put with a bit of a righteous skewing. He will likely develop a bit of arrogance, though with his kind and naive beginnings it shouldn't be too extreme I hope. With the world building so far, the scope of this story's world is huge, and Qin Wentian is still only in one of the smallest areas, so I expect we'll be seeing a pattern where he moves to a place --> finds out he's at the very bottom in terms of strength and is probably underestimated --> trains, gets stronger, and tramples his enemies --> moves on to the next area. The key in how boring or enjoyable said cycle turns out to be will lie mostly in the variations in the environment, circumstances and characters, as well as in the level of character development shown by the MC.

[collapse]

All in all, Ancient Godly Monarch isn't a masterpiece, but it is far better than Peerless Martial God and so far remains a fairly enoyable story. I will continue to read this novel for now, maintaining a sense of skepticism towards future chapters, and I'd say that it is an average story that is suitable for passing the time. The translator is very good as well. For now, I'm going to go ahead and give it 3 stars. <<less

As expected of the Author of PMG. The characters are as stupid as ever. No matter what they can't seem to see MT. Tai, as you can see from the review below me... This peculiar guard should have been quite clear of his former (!) coworkers strength, but he was stupid enough to still attack MC, because he firmly believes that MC is trash. Yes people, "The Trash" is here too!

The characters are as arrogant as ever too. They are brainless fools and The MC is as expected is somewhat... more>> less of a fool. In the end, as a wild dog tail will never be straight. Its the same for the author. PMG reformed... <<less

Seriously, this story is far better that what i thought it would be, considering the mediocre ratings. The story progressed slowly but on steady pace. The characters are memorable and are not easily replaced, like some certain novels. I do feel like the conflicts are too much, but for those who can mouth them, it would be an exhilarating read. The MC is sometimes stupid and naive but from there, we can actually see character development later on.

A lot of people give a not so good review. My advise for you try to read it first. at least after he got into an academy. Sure, I agree with most review that said the first arc/conflict is not so good, but it'll got better later on. AGM has the same vibe as ATG, which the first wuxia/xianxia/xuanhuan/etc genres novel that I read. for me personally I like AGM better (I lost interest in ATG after MC first 'died' incident arc).

Oh, about the typical OP-ness, I found... more>> AGM rather make sense than most OP MC I've read so far. He got that OP-ness from a necklace his dad gave him, and some knowledge his teacher/guardian teach him from young age. <<less

Not enough development, too focused on the conflict/revenge stuff. There is a weaker payoff for it because of that.

With that out of the way, it's a pretty good and standard Xuanhuan. There's a lot of political backstabby stuff that is milked a bit and it feels both rushed and too long at the same time.

I find that many of the arcs are superfluous and really only are there to repeat the same tired Xuanhuan formula: offend X person in Y faction, Climb to top of Y faction or Y faction's... more>> rival, offend A person in B faction that's one tier higher than Y faction, ect.

It's serviceable, but very formulaic, and I find that even if you skip chapters or even whole arcs there's nothing of value to be missed. I mean that very seriously because I went back to read through it anyway, and felt "Well that wasted a lot of time."

There are definitely some interesting concepts like dreamworld cultivation and the whole "refinement" thing (trying not to spoil), but it feels like there are too many things, too many factions, too many conflicts that are only there for the sake of padding out the escalation.

Basically even when the MC beats a faction and there's meant to be catharsis, you wind up not feeling much because "Action without development is just narrative noise". Unfortunately outside of certain things that are really built up over multiple arcs or some cheap comic-book death shortcuts, you'll find that your investment in the story is very low much of the time.

In summation: It's a great, mechanically sound exemplar of a formulaic Genre, and its weakness is a reflection of the genre. It doesn't really elevate it or push it further. <<less

So I gave this novel 5/5. Its written extremely well and the translation quality is excellent. Author knows well how to build up tension and keep you on your toes so you look forward to what will happen next. But at some point you stop and then an intense feeling of regret and disappointment overwhelms you. Why is that? ...because you know with certainty what will happen next.

You have no hope for it to surprise you. MC will most likely never lose and either be able to trmple over... more>> everyone or reveal an extraordinary quality, make heaven defying breakthrough or no one will be wble to stand up to him from the very beginning. This is what in my opinion is the bane of most novels. Giving MC an overpowered system - no difference if it is his talent, an object or simply a way to infinitely increase his strength in short periods of time- it will make the reader able to clearly predict the way in which the story and various situations will develop. It might be what readers want to happen but the plot suffers for it. All in all I considered giving a lower note but aside from somewhat lacking plot the story is written well. <<less

They should add most hated mc to the tags cause damn why do so many people hate you. And I use the word hate quite liberally. Not even 30 chapters in and it seems like everyone is going against the mc, I mean when you think about it the major clans/people introduced so far already wants to kill the mc. I get the whole adversity makes a stronger person thats prevalent in these xuanhuan/xianxia novels, its what makes them so strong in these stories but holy shit I haven't even... more>> gotten to know the mc that well yet and the author already set the mc's difficulty level in life to be nightmare mode.

Like what most reviews had said the cultivation is well different, at least its not so generic that makes me yawn. And its true that there are some troupes that are played out but I think its one of those things in the martial novel formula you can't get rid of, at least for most. I think that's fine, but I kind of want to start off small scale and go up from there. What I mean is usually the mc's rivals are on his level, a person in the same school/clan that they have to beat. Or a distant goal where we kind of know that the whole story will lead to this climax in which the mc has to accomplish.

You could say the author is going a different direction, spice it up. Sounds good but it wasn't executed well. I barely know the guy and troubles seems to find him at every turn. So for me so far I can't say I find any qualities in which makes me want to know who he is more like I want to know when he's gonna fuck up everybody who harmed him. I already started skimming chapters cause well like i said typical troupe arc, which is why solidifying your mc can make those troupes less agonizing. If the mc and support cast is more established I probably wouldn't care because the mc is unique enougth it can carry the story regardless how mundane it is, at least that's my opinion. I hope it gets better and I hope the mc won't get crapped on so much, I mean seriously he's got way too many enemies. <<less

I dont know what this authors problem is but in both PMG and AGM the villains just all target the MC for stupid reasons and dont make sense as to why they are targeting the MC even though they might die. I would say that this is slightly better than PMG and the MC does not start killing people randomly and offending people.

So far I'm in love with the cultivation concept because simply it is unique with majority of cultivators having different power and characteristic depending on which constellation they acquire. Not only that we also see a bit of character development and MC's mysterious background.

HELLO!!!! :3

I'll be the most recent review *yeah!!!*

Okay, for some clarifications for those have only started reading Xuanhuan, Wuxia and Xianxia Novels this story might be quite generic (which is mostly all translated stories are), so don't get taken by those bad reviews given in this thread... as far as I am reading through it I would like to say 5 pointers that should be clarified:
1) Yes, Its generic, same MC that has a trash cultivation but eventually become strong due to various reasons (such as a former relic,... more>> amazing cultivation method, sealed power and even reincarnation turned for a better path of cultivation)
Cons: It is still very entertaining, though the synopsis is quite vague, the MC has good temperament, good constitution and also amazing cultivation (hint: the title). His not as cunning because he started as a naive character but he has the talent and determination to get to his dream...
2) IT IS SLOW PHASED, the story started with the very beginning like in most LN (Martial Emperor Reborn, ISSTH, PME, Martial God Asura and Limitless Sword God); thus you have to be really patient because the story is slowly unfolding and its not like other LN/WN that relies on fast cultivation, strength, awesome fighting scenes showcasing their battle poweress(which I love)
Cons: You , as a reader can learn the true character of the MC, and grow to love them as they grow and become amazing characters (too cheezy <3 <3)
3) and Yes it not as unique as what some reviews cater it to be. It has the same cultivation method as Supreme Arrow God, which uses the stars but on different Description; in here, they specialized Cultivation and talent based on the "Astral soul" one condenses and links to and then grow from them on until they can fully utilized its power (still vague from this point)
Cons:It is a fresh read aside from reading other trilling Chinese novels, most of which I read are very fast phase and usually involves A LOT of fighting and A LOT of cultivation breakthroughs (the best I read that involves this : ISSTH, THNH & Martial God Asura). this LN is really more on the "Let walk on the park and leisurely stroll" kind of vibe that is why it is considered mildly slow phased.
4) The translation is very good!!! (thanks to Gravitytales; please support them they translated one of my most favorite LNs which are True Martial World, Demon Dairy and BTTH).
Cons: there is none, the translation is smooth and the wordings are better than most :)
5)This is newly translated Web Novel, so there aren't much chapters, GravityTales only started translating it this April so please be patient on reading this
Cons: It is really Okay as of now, the story is linear, the plot is generic, the characters are still on the "I like stage" for me,but,.....

IT IS WORTH READING!! Do not give up on novels based on reviews, really, if not for the fact that I had skim the reviews and thought that its quite faulty I would not have written this review.....Please this novel needs Justice!!! <<less

It’s a novel for reading besides other novels, or for people that don’t like it too deep. The Characters and the story isn’t really deep but that’s actually what makes the novel a nice read! It’s an “easy” read, the translation is good, the story has a nice flow, its nothing more, but also nothing less! What I forgot is that there is actually a “semi”-new cultivation system what makes it even a little bit more interesting.

This story has really picked up in the past 50 chaps or so. So much so that I now actually look forward to chap updates instead of before where it was just "Oh this has an update, I'll read it after I read all the other good stuff first."

I don't remember enough about the beginning to comment on whether it was good or not, but obviously it was good enough for me to stick with it thus far unlike garbage like Sovereign of the Three Realms or whatever.

Story is good,... more>> cultivation method is creative, characters are decent. MC of course gets all the beauties to fall for him but he's pretty dead-set on his main girl so far. It has that touch of mystery (What's going to happen in the long-run?) to keep it going, which is never a bad thing.

All in all worth reading. <<less

Even if someone tortured me I wouldn't have believed that this is by the same author as PMG. The difference between the two novels is astounding. AGH's closely knitted writing is a lot more fluid (although it might be the difference between translators), with a likeable MC and allies, although it still suffers from brainless villains with no redeeming factors. AGM is nowhere as interesting as works like ISSTH nor is it as blood pumping as ATG, but it is still quite an enjoyable LN to read.
