Reviewed at c60, rated 5.

Beseech The Devil tells the story of a boy with unknown background who grew up in a minor tribe. The tribe retained primitive customs like sacrificing animal bloods and bowing to mythical animals, but they also had a unique methods of cultivation. At first glance, the boy himself didn't have the physique needed to cultivate, thus although he was not treated badly in the tribe, no one actually expected him to be anything but ordinary. However, through some coincidences, later he was able to cultivate...behind his... more>> tribe's back.

The plot seems cliche, but the development so far is pretty solid. The characters are lively and relatable; they're not simply there to set MC stage. Disregarding the volatile quality of earlier translations, in my opinion Beseech The Devil is an above-par novel among xianxia/xuanhuan. Particularly if you are a fan of this genre, it is very suitable for your reading list.

Truthfully, the story is still laying its foundation now, so it might be too early to give it 5 stars. However, I've got really big expectation for its future chapters. <<less

this is the kind of story you will expect from ER GEN. although the cultivation method is quite different in this story, the way they cultivate is a mix between Perfect World and WESTERN CULTIVATORS from ISSTH.

so far there is only 14 chapters translated, in these chapters you will get enough mystery to get your attentions.

i have a high hope for this story. i believe it is going to be as popular as ISSTH and Perfect World – if we get frequent updates-.

The book itself seems to be interesting and unusual. It's one of ErGen's older works and even if not a masterpiece, it's still solid and well structured. It also contains typical pseudo-philosophical depth, which is entertaining.

Edit: The story is getting progressively more and more interesting and fresh lately, so I have to change my rating to 5.

If you can overcome the first, badly translated, couple chapters (before PiggyBottle took over), you might find youself well rewarded.

The story is well written. The first ten or so chapters are poorly translated, however PiggyBottle is a good translator and is able to convey the story very well.

While the translation is only up to c50 it is hard to make definite statements about the story, but the main character seems to be a intelligent mc similar to all other Er Gen protags, however he seems to be lacking other personality traits. The cultivation is slightly different from the usual wuxia fair, and I look forward to see future developments.

5/5... more>> Has promise <<less

One of the best you can find out there;

The mc is not one of the barbarian birth as he was adopted into the village clan by the villages grand elder and because he has a body of an immortal cultivator, walking on the path of barbarian cultivators is very difficult to almost impossible (think of barbarian cultivators like the western one from ISSTH) the cultivation realms are different compared to the other three popular novels from Ergen however there is one aspect that most people will link with ISSTH is... more>> that cultivators in BTD will condense an Totem Tattoo based on their dao or technique which is really cool.

At the moment all we know is that the mc found a special object which contains memories of certain civilization but to access them he needs to insert special pills into the object according to the memories of how to concoct them shown to him by the object.

The world also knows nothing about pills so he needs to be careful after he made and sold them however the ones he made are only useful to lower level people. also because of a certain event which caused their surrounding territory and other tribes to be in danger he through bravery acquired a technique which allows him to practice faster but at danger of exploding.

As the second novel of ergen it is awesome however because it is still in its early stages i cant give a proper review at the moment but from what i have seen if the way it continues on wards it might contest with Xian Ni on my list for no.1 from ergen as for ISSTH at the moment it is No.3 because i dislike Meng Hao and his personality however as the story of ATTE or AWE (still ATTE but different name from DB) ISSTH might drop to no.4.

I totally recommend reading this one as reading Ergens novels is always a good experience and its always enjoyable. <<less
