The strong are lonesome. Overcoming the loneliness pushes you to stand invincible at the top.

Pro-disciple of the Shaolin Temple on earth, Huang Xiaolong was reborn into a Martial Spirit world, carrying Hua Xia’s secret knowledge, the Body Metamorphose Scripture.

In a Martial Spirit world, only those with Martial Spirit are able to train in battle qi and become a warrior. Huang Xiaolong born with a heaven-defying rare Martial Spirit was mistakenly taken for common variant Martial Spirit during the awakening ceremony conducted by the tribe and thus sidelined.

However, Huang Xiaolong with his common “variant” Martial Spirit again, and again displayed unnatural talent, defeating geniuses, shocking the clan and the entire Martial Spirit World

This novel is so average, mediocre, typical cliche, and predictable plot.

Author just put a silver if not a golden spoon to the MC mouth in every single chapter.

  1. MC needs an OP item? He pick it in a lake cave (at least its not on the bare street)
  2. MC needs servants/followers/whatever you called them? He just auto promote to a sucessor of an OP sect bcoz of his dogshitluck in point 1.
  3. MC met OP enemies and need some help? his follower/servants/whatever u caled em are all around the world and FORTUNATELY (!?) are OP one above another in following sequences...
  4. ETC,ETC,ETC... too many of examples of it.
Basically, author just put a Super armor plot for all mc miracles which makes this novel so dull...

Theres no challenge, no thrill, no suspense in it since... more>> everything is so predictable and cliche.

But looking from this still ch160s while the raw is 2400s,maybe theres still some hope in the future chapter.

Raise your hope, but don`t expect much. <<less

I fail to see how this can be an enjoyable read for people.

I am someone who has read a lot of xianxia and I am ok with the tropes and cliches if they are done well or even decently.

Yes, it is filled with the cliches and he has a ridiculous amount of luck even for a xianxia MC, but the

For me the real flaw is that he has never faced a challenge that he could not effortlessly overcome.  There is no tension.  No obstacle is not surpassed within 2 chapters... more>> and there are effectively no negative repercussions for any of his actions.

This is not a slice of life novel, with an OP MC where this can work.  It is a standard, cliche-ridden xianxia novel, and what makes those work is the journey to power, the struggle to overcome challenges that exceed what anyone could expect of them; this novel has none of that. <<less

I think there is a reason that this novel hasn't made the jump from the wuxiaworld forums to the main page even after over 100 chapters have been translated, and it has nothing to do with the translation quality. [edit - apparently the jump from the forums to the website has now happened, so this line is now incorrect.

I still feel the same way about the relative quality of the original work, but wanted to add this correction in]

This novel suffers from the worst of the xianxia tropes on... more>> every side of the story. Paper-thin petty antagonists populate the world. The world itself breaks any common sense rules that you may have just to push the bad story along. The main character (MC) is hardly any better, and is as shallow as his opponents. Lucky chances continuously fall from the sky with no foreshadowing or active seeking on the part of the MC.

Perhaps our views on what is reasonable don't match? Allow me to lay it out... spoilers on the first 30 chapters or so to follow:

First, the setting.

Spoiler

We're somehow to believe that this family hasn't torn itself apart already? Training for a kid with better than average potential: none. Aside from teaching the MC base forms, the parents leave him to his own devices. Then, at the family competition, there is this stupid rule of "nobody is able to interfere"... even when there is an obvious victor, who is in the process of causing their opponent permanent harm? This rule is there to make it seem unfair that the MC wasn't able to completely cripple their opponent with everyone watching, but all I could think about when this was being discussed was "this entire family is obviously too stupid to live."

[collapse]

Then, the antagonists.

Spoiler

The only believable antagonist for the beginning arc is the MC's cousin, because he is only an age seven or eight bully. Him, I can believe. His father and the grandfather are the typical one-dimensional "give unfair advantages to an opponent" petty antagonists. Sure, some favoritism is believable, but the author takes it to ludicrous extremes. Allow the bully kid to boast that he'll cripple other children? A-Ok, and let's give him a chance to act on it. After a year has passed and the first failure has festered into enough antagonism that in their perception, the bully kid is likely to try it? Sure thing, we don't mind that either...actually we lost face last year, so that would be great!

Are all of these guys children? There is no effort by the author to pull these characters out of this cookie-cutter "xianxia family villain" portrayal.

[collapse]

The MC is also a mix of all the annoying xianxia MC tropes as well:

Spoiler

MC decides to hide their potential from everyone? Why? Not really explained. Oh, sure, there is a throwaway line buried a few chapters in where it is said that showing his talent would be a calamity in some way... but that's it. It's not like the MC found an item that would be able to be taken from them. How would it be a such a detriment? This logic isn't followed up on, it's just assumed that the reader will agree that since it is a xianxia novel, the MC has to conceal his ability.

And it's not like the MC ever even thought about telling anyone. How much effort would it be to have had the MC actually take a chapter to actually think about the pros and cons of a few different options? If they had decided to keep quiet after considering the options of being open to the overall family, or of being open to just his father and mother, maybe it would have been acceptable. But either the author didn't think about it, or couldn't make any real plausible reason for him to keep quiet, so it gets glossed over.

Add in the MC's inability to ever take a step back and the inability and think about the consequences of his actions, and you have the perfect trifecta of stupid MC xianxia tropes.

[collapse]

Finally, luck:

Spoiler

Now all MCs will have a certain amount of this, but a good author will either space out lucky finds so that it doesn't break immersion, or have the MC actively seek dangerous situations to find the prize at the end, or (for abilities) bring it up much earlier than the ability gets used so that it doesn't seem out of place. Now let's review this novel. Again, this is all within the first 30 chapters:

MC is a reincarnator.

MC gets a super rare martial spirit that gets misidentified.

MC was a super awesome martial artist in their prior life, and their training of their old style has great benefits for their new style.

MC meets a smart spirit monkey companion.

MC is brought to some awesome rare fruits by said monkey.

After eating fruits, MC cleans off in a lake. The lake has a hidden cultivator's cave!

In the cave is a super rare martial technique and magic swords and a super rare dimensional storage ring!

Later, the MC runs into another person with the same technique and helps him since he is really injured. He happens to be super strong.

We find out that the MC also has some technique to heal broken meridians (from his prior life I think?).

MC's lucky find in the cave means he is actually the true successor of another kingdom/family of some far away land!

[collapse]

So do I feel this story is completely worthless? Despite all this, I wouldn't say that. I view this like the bad free appetizer that gets put on the table at some restaurants. If you are really hungry and have nothing to read and need something to kill your time until the main meal of actually good stories? This is good enough for that, at least. Despite my qualms about the story itself, the translation work itself isn't bad.

Just don't go into this novel expecting it to be anything more than Generic Xianxia Story #176. <<less

Hi, just registered to help comment on this awesome novel. Please try not to believe what others said about this novel. It may be the same with other xianxia novels, but it has its own strengths. I won't spoil it, but others' talk about MC's parents is not true and he doesn't sacrifice his family members, unlike other novels where familial bonds are only served in the beginning of the story and do not provide any developments to his family members. I'm still looking for the similar novel which also... more>> focuses on the familial bonds like this novel (if any of you knows about this, please by all means tell me. thanks in advance)

Anyway, it may take a long time to enjoy this novel, but please do not mislead others. Everyone is welcome to criticize it based on your preference, but please avoid giving misleading information. Anyway, no offense to others. Let's enjoy this :D <<less

**Edit at c163** Still really good and has been holding my interest. There's A LOT of timeskips in this novel. Although MCs cultivation is incredibly fast compared to others, it still takes a VERY long time to move to the next order in the current realm. An example (Coiling Dragon spoiler) ... more>>
Spoiler

When Linley or others get to the higher planes, cultivation takes hundreds/ thousands of years for improvements. Even early on in Invincile, that slow rate of improvement seems like it's gonna be the norm.

[collapse]
Anyway, other than the insanely slow cultivation (overall), which warrants tons of timeskips, the story has still been fun.

The MC is like Yan Zhaoge from HSSB, in that even though he's lower level, he has insanely strong loyal subordinates. There have been the typical villains and arrogant fools, but it's been handled very well so far. Although HSSB is probably the best Xuanhuan currently being translated (imo), Invincible is far above a lot of the other ones atm. The raws have 2400+ chapters so I don't know how it'll hold up, but if you're like me and love reading all these Xuanhuan/Xianxia novels, definitely check this out as it's honestly at the higher end of this genre (so far).

**Edit** Caught up to the current chapters (103) and I'm still thoroughly enjoying this. Review still holds... for now.

Incredibly good as of Ch. 48

The MC is super young right now, but the fact he was reincarnated helps a lot since he's not a kid, mentally. His personality and character is great so far, even if we haven't seen enough to totally determine things. Definitely confident yet not arrogant. I'd say currently 50% ruthless since it seems like he can hold back from executing people instantly without thinking about consequences, which is nice. Not too soft or too hard. I like how he's willing to learn things, especially from his "people". Might not seem like a huge deal to most, but this MC has been one of the best I've seen. Honestly reminds me of Forgotten Conqueror a bit.

Story has been nice so far. Pace and cultivation is pretty quick atm, but that doesn't hinder the story at all. If anything, it makes it better, especially when it's been foreshadowed how damn massive the world is. The first dozen or so chapters might seems a bit annoying because the MC is so secretive, but it's honestly not as bad as people make it seem.

One HUGE thing that's refreshing is that people with cultivation realms above the MC haven't really appeared. It's not like the MC against the world where he offends huge fucking powers non stop, where everyone has the power to squash him like an ant. Where all these people have the power of Mt. Tai and everyone else doesn't know the difference between heaven and earth. It's a BIG deal since that hasn't happened... And it's fantastic.

There's a bit of romance, I guess? She's pretty likeable but they're just kids atm, and the MC is mentally an adult... Like I said, a bit like Forgotten Conqueror if you've read it.

As for the HIDDEN ABILITIES aspect, which I assume a lot of people would worry about, like me, it's not that bad and I feel like it isn't detrimental or irritating. He doesn't reveal all of his power, but enough... Trust me, it's good. Like I said before, the first dozen or so chapters are the most annoying, but I think it fits. Still, don't skip some of the important introductory info in those chapters. As for if he hides things non stop, it's a bit like Emperor's Domination. He uses his full capability on people he's gonna kill. He'll also reveal things about himself to his "people". There's an incredibly satisfying moment when he reveals something important to two of his "people"... Especially satisfying since most writer's chose NOT to reveal something and then I start raging really damn hard because of it.

I'm not a good reviewer, but yeah... This novel is really damn good so far. It's been incredibly promising and I look forward to the day when Wuxiaworld accepts this series as an official translation. <<less

So far it's just another standard xianxia trope filled story. Including the ever-so-annoying "must hide abilities at all costs". Actually, amend that to "must hide abilities at all cost, even passing up on benefits to cultivation, and getting angry over humiliation received from being viewed as weak".

MC would rather see his parents be humiliated rather than show even half his power. Plus he won't even let his parents know anything close to his actual progress. Just let them swallow the scorn from the rest of the family.

Gave it 3.0 since... more>> it's not terrible, it just has terrible things in it. <<less

Giving this a 1/5. No idea how this novel ever got more than a 3/5 from other reviews.

For me, it's incredibly generic. The typical Reincarnation + MC luck + the same old internal family / clan issue.

While I was reading it, the first novel that popped up in my mind was PMG, and well, I think that most people know how bad that novel turned out to be. Why PMG though? Well, it's pretty much because of the family issues as well as the whole spirit thing. The grandfather's reaction... more>> is even almost exactly the same as the Elder in PMG. This novel is worse though because the MC's father is absolutely useless. At least the MC's father actually tried his best to defend his son as much as possible and really believe in him. In this novel, the MC's father is utterly useless. As for the Martial Spirits, I think that's pretty much self-explanatory. Even after the family issues are resolved, the issues that the MC faces are pretty much the same. Arrogant geniuses who just keep stepping up after watching a genius get beat down. I guess that really isn't anything knew when it comes to any type of web novel though. I guess one positive thing to note is that this novel's MC isn't as chatty as PMG's.

One thing which I found incredibly stupid though is that... (this will contain spoilers)

Spoiler

when the MC finally left to venture, he just left his family alone surrounded by relatives who obviously didn't like them and who he had personally created vendettas with. Since I was going to drop the novel anyway, I just checked for the chapter where he returns to his family. When I skimmed through that chapter I wasn't even surprised that the "strong" big brother of the antagonist arrived and beat up the MC's father shortly before the MC himself arrived. That was coincidentally the last chapter currently translated so I don't know how he'll beat up that particular family (and honestly, I'm not even interested in finding out what actually happens when more chapters come out) but that last chapter added another thing which I absolutely dislike to this novel. The whole "hero arrives just in time" concept which happens time and time again in web novels despite the MC not even bothering to secure the safety of his "loved ones". It find it annoying because I'd rather have someone who "means a lot" to the MC die than to have a MC who never actually develops because he always gets away with his selfishness / carelessness.

[collapse]

As for the author, I think that his writing skills is lower than PMG's. Why? Because everything simply felt like they were words on paperwhite. The things being described to happen simply happened and I never felt really anything. In addition to that, everything just seemed to have a tone of childishness.

Anyway, with those things said, I'm dropping this completely and never looking back. As for the people who I think would be interested in reading this novel, it'll probably be those who are still reading PMG and the likes. <<less

Just sloshes back and forth between contrived fights and sudden cultivation bursts. Kind of incoherent and lacks the sense of adventure. Pretty much works like:

1) Level up in stunningly short period of time

2) Kill some folk who didn't expect the level up

3) Level up in stunningly short period of time

4) Go on a trip, kill some folk who didn't expect the level up

5) Level up in stunningly short period of time

6) Go back home, kill some folk who didn't expect the level up

and so on...

I really like the novel at first, it was a bit different then your typical cultivation story since they have spirits. Sadly, the main character just gets a lucky break one after another, has plot armor, a predictable story line, and picks a fight constantly. Seriously, I'm not sure if he's ever not had a fight after a chapter or two.

At first, the fights were more or less justified, but it quickly went out of hand. Oh, you thought I was lower class? Here, let me smack you around, kill... more>> you, etc.

It's not interesting to read at all at this point!

He also receives a lucky encounter constantly and basically gives his parents, who don't contribute to the story at all, cultivation material after cultivation material, without using any for himself. No worries though, he'll disappear for a month and suddenly have something new and shiny the very next chapter. <<less

I had good hopes for this one and it is a shame given the great work of the translator, but at this time it seems that we have another Peerless Martial God in the making :(

Peerless Martial God also has an excellent translator. I hope it isn't a trend...

At this chapter, all that is left of the good initial potential of the story is arrogance and mercilessness of the MC vs. stupid blindness of the antagonists. Well at least the MC is not self-righteous like the protagonist of PMG.

I know... more>> that, by my point of view, the story has being constantly descending in quality. And i don't intend to wait for a 1000 chapter until the story finally appeals to me. I don't know if i have the energy/time to discover the truth of the matter.

In the beginning, the story deserved at least a rating of 4, but now i will give it a 3. That is: before i regret it... <<less

The mention of Martial Spirits and a reincarnated MC that brings over a technique from his original world initially brought to mind Douluo Dalu 1, however this novel is nowhere near that gem.

There's little to no suspense - everything gets handed to the MC on a silver platter. Within just a few chapters, the MC's reached the 3rd level mountain peak of cultivation while the early antagonist is just at 1st level, received TWO cultivation treasures (all thanks to a monkey that comes mysteriously out of nowhere), received a super... more>> advanced cultivation technique (with related battle skills!), a treasure saber and space ring.

Zero attempts at world building, MC's interactions with other people are limited to
a. Hiding his higher cultivation level (which I think is BS because that's just asking for trouble. At the very least he could show that he has worth in his clan so that he doesn't need to deal with a lot of unnecessary sh*t)
b. Reassuring his parents that he won't get beat up because of his *lower* cultivation
c. Beating up the arrogant junior members of his family.

The author could have done a better job of giving his MC personality by showing how he interacts with his parents and siblings outside of cultivation concerns, but the opportunities are thrown away in favor of cultivation and getting new treasures, etc.

TLDR - Don't go into the novel if you're looking for a well-developed, living world with a fleshed out MC and an intriguing story. If you don't mind the usual xianxia tropes, near constant treasures and level ups, then there's quite a possibility for the advancement of the MC. It's possible to get hooked to see how his martial spirit will evolve and advance, what skills he'll get, and how the mysterious cultivation technique he received will improve.

So far finished reading till chapter 16

Story line: Typical xianxia. MC Reincarnates and brings a secret art from the previous world [earth].

... more>>
Spoiler

When he was in the shaolin temple he had learned a secret art "Body Metamorphose Scripture" which helps in training battle qi (so far) in the present world of Martial Spirit World.

[collapse]

He is also introduced to this strength system of "Battle Qi" and "Martial Spirits".The Martial spirit reminds me of "Peerless martial god". Hope this LN doesn't have the same plot armour "You are trash" and MC reacting every single time to show he is Super Strong.

Spoiler

Yep, snakes turning into dragons. First it was a two headed snake then it splits to form 2 distinct dragons.

[collapse]

Character Building: Well, new characters are being introduced steadily. The MC's character has not been expounded so far. Other side characters behave in a very typical xianxia fashion.

Spoiler

Cousin tries to bully MC's sister. Gets beaten. Holds a grudge. Involves his father. The father is so stupid that instead of reprimanding his son, gets angry towards his nephew. Cousin fights with MC at the annual clan assembly. Love interest/fiance is also introduced.

[collapse]

Not sure whether harem will be there or not though

World Building: Too early to say anything. The author hasn't explained it well so far.

Translation: Descent. A couple of mistakes here and there, but its alright. The translation speed has picked up. Hope the LN is hosted in a proper site instead of forum though. :)

Conclusion: Read if you are NOT looking from something new. Personally, it wasn't bad and I was not bored. I will give it a 4 out of 5 for now. <<less

This novel is plainly bad. Everything is just too convenient for the MC. ie. Instant power up elixir, OP legacy on the go, Auto loot monkey, Instant understanding of martial art. Totally OP spirit constitution.

There is no difference between this and other generic martial art novels. Also school arc is just stupid, because author has nothing else to write, he just throw in a school arc for the MC to flex his arrogance, for unneeded boring. Combined with totally royal servants, who kept kowtowing little kid. Everyone should avoid this... more>> novel entirely, unless you have nothing else better to read like me. <<less

If you've read "The Nine Cauldrons" by 'I Eat Tomatoes' you will like this. I like the MC way of doing things. I was addicted for some time and I loved it. But what ruins it for me is the Romance. (It has no taste and its like any other CN)
... more>>
Spoiler

She's just blindly devoted and falls in love instantly with the MC. And the MC suddenly for no apparent reason can't live without her.

[collapse]

is its too fast and things are really forced! So there's no room for character development when the Characters feel "emotion" I just can't get into it since there's no development.

Spoiler

I loved the fact the MC ditched his Clan and left them to die and escaped with his family. That's something "King Of Gods" CN mc should had done! The MC takes no sh*t from no one. I like it. But I hate the fact that the Heroine whom had no potential out of no where gets a power up! Then the typical Wuxia thing happens. "Heroine captive by a extremely strong Clan and MC has no choice but to get stronger in order to marry her" How many freaking times have we've seen it? That's what I hate about it. The changes were too forced. Out of no where suddenly the Heroine Li Liu family dies. And its emotional later saying "I'm getting revenge".

[collapse]

I think the Author has his priorities really wrong in this story.
Spoiler

Before you know it the little sister already married and the fiancé mysteriously disappears. I really liked the little sister, she was adorable. But hardly had time to enjoy it! Its so fast that I already forgot that the Monkey existed! She's the little sister from "The Nine Cauldrons"

[collapse]

The MC whose OP suddenly becomes the weak character 'in need of strength'. Sigh...I'm just disappointed sometimes. <<less

So, having come up to date with the novel (at the current released chapters 2359 as of now) and seeing no one else having made a review with this many chapters i'll do one and try to keep it as spoiler free as possible.

So this novel as many others have mentioned is quite typical, but what wins it for me is that atleast it keeps some of the fantasy which i believe is the charm that i like in CN (xianxia) novels. Also as you read it you see that it takes some aspects from other novels, or copies if you'd like - the start with all the martial spirits and such feels a bit like LLS. As you proceed it is a bit like MW/TMW not only because the MC is almost invincible and beats things above his level, but also the fantasy items like: all kinds of flames, magical treasures of all kinds, different thunders and things to collect and items of legend not to mention all the beasts and mythical creatues/legendary figures. Later on the novel starts to have an air of Emperors Domination with how the MC acts in his actions. All in all it is a typical xianxia but it does it well enough to be worth reading (and binge read)

About the MC, well as said above He is the Heavens Chosen MC, the backstory of him being reincarnated, is sadly just like the usual reincarnated mcs: it's mostly used for convenience. The scripture is just there to make him OP (Kinda like AST or Dominating Sword Immortal i guess?) and to make some of his actions easier. All that said he isn't a dry cracker with no humor and isn't dull with romance and he does grow as the story progresses. As i said with how it resembles ED is that he at one point rules .. some places not gonna spoil too much here, but during the story he becomes the ruler of a lot of places so as he goes around the world and above, then obviously he won't take trash talking from some puny young master of X sect or anyone for that sake. This means during the story we will see a lot of people provoking him and him killing A LOT OF PEOPLE - seriously i think this guy easily can be in the top 5 of MC kill counts, this doesn't mean he is the bloodthirst type on the contrary he's pretty harmless as long as you don't provoke him so don't let it deter you from reading this novel. Honestly dont expect too much in the first 100-200 chapters from the MC as the author is still trying to set up how the MC acts.

As for the side characters and romance:

  • It is actually a harem as he has more than 1 love interest, most of the romance and the girls aren't too fleshed out (Shi Xiaofei best girl tho) and he has two main love interests so far with 3 others. The two mains aren't too 1 dimensional and Shi Xiaofei feels like a young wife throughout the story and another girl is also quite likeable.
  • His family is also important to him through the story and we meet them occasionally, so they aren't just thrown behind and that's it.
  • Sadly as it is for this type of story, it is hard to keep friends and followers consistent, as through the story the MC usually power spikes too much. That said he does meet plenty of friends and have masters which isn't too 1 dimensional and there is also a few mentionable/memorable characters we meet.

I guess i'll mention some of the things i found bad/annoying/a pity:

  • The Antagonists is not too memorable in my opinion. We're not dealing with the super big schemes and plots, and even if, then the MC is just brute forcing his MC power through most of it. Not to mention that they somehow tend to be soft hearted, in an otherwise pretty brutal cultivation world - while there is some deaths on the MCs sides it is never truly important characters which means a softer impact for us readers. But! The first major antagonist was decent i guess.
  • Finally no really.. finally, maybe it was just because i read it on MTL, but the word FINALLY was used way too much in the start of the story. If, to you, the word FINALLY means using a fair bit of effort used to accomplish something, then it does not have the same meaning for the author. Cultivating to X step in no time that otherwise takes others a long time? FINALLY DONE with so much damn effort. Opening a magic treasure in two tries with hardly any time spent? FINALLY opened it wow FINALLY. Ok, i wont say too much more about it, but unless the translator spices it up, be ready for the lack of vocabulary in the start.
  • Too many young masters that keep blaring their status and provoking and retaliation. While it isn't always bad as it is like reading a young master/sect death sentence every time.
  • No real motivation for cultivation, after the start with wanting to protect his family.
  • MC cant walk outside without stepping in treasures, but this is also related with the cultivation type (and being able to move the story anywhere with how the MCs body is). Essentially this novel doesn't use the sense things / sense dao ETC type of cultivation but it's mostly just Absorb Energy/Qi to fill urself up to breakthrough.
  • Also! Grades! so many grades and levels and grades and levels and best and mid and low and so on, this novel seriously suffers from this, so brace yourselves for GRADING!
  • And last but not least the Author cheapens us with writing in full every time he cultivates, meaning it's not just "And Xiaolong cultivated for the evening" no it describes the whole process almost every time he cultivates. What does this mean? It means by the time i read 2359 chapters atleast 3-400 of them was describing him almost cultivating the same over and over. I feel like this is a seriously bad from the author, i know he has to deliver his chapters but it is still largely disappointing - But hey atleast you can just scroll past it most of the time, but it still means there's actually only about 2000 chapters if not a bit less(at the time of this review obviously) when you remove the rehashing of the cultivation.

All in all, a really enjoyable MC thats confident and ruthless but still decent. With the typical xianxia setting, a few memorable characters that you'll enjoy. And while it has been mentioned in other reviews, he does actually face a few super powerhouses quite above his level later on, needing to use subordinates or treasures to face. Obviously the reason for this is to push him and give a reason for cultivating obviously as he realizes he's an ant most of the time, even if he's a super blessed MC. As for the reason he hides his things.. Well as you read further in you realize just how blessed he is and how good of a decision it is.

But do keep in mind that this novel as of now has 2k+ chapters and it does take the first hundreds of chapters to start to define itself.

Also a good novel to begin with if this is your first or second novel you are reading as it isn't too "Chinese".

Rated 4, as it does come with its faults and i wont say its a gem like Duoluo Dalu etc.

Don't read this. Seriously this is possibly the worst novel I've read. I know these stories typically have mc who has a lot of luck but this is simply ridiculous. Its one thing to get a powerful spirit and have talent like that but add in a godly inheritance way too good for the effort involved and acquired way too early and a pet beast that falls for the mc for no reason whatsoever and practically exists just to give the mc more treasures even though it would be better... more>> off keeping it for itself plus one dimensional cardboard cutout villains. I honestly don't see what the translator saw in this novel to bother translating it. <<less

When I started reading this novel it didn't take long before I encountered the usual Xianxia cliches. I expected it, so I was not really annoyed. At most I felt a little bored. Yet, things actually didn't stop there. The hidden talents come to light way faster that I expected, and if that was not enough, the fateful encounter happens only a few chapter after the protagonist realizes what is his true power and potential. Coincidentally he obtains powerful allies while his enemies are the usual proud, talented yet stupid... more>> characters that come a dime a dozen. The love interest is the usual annoying, clingy, extremely pure and angelic nine year old girl that will most likely attach to the protagonist as a parasite. The protagonist is a merciless cultivator that always finds new extremely rare resources, yet he always wants to share them with his less than talented parents to help them, even though he could do much better as long as he used these resources on himself to deal with the present problems before helping them. He is proud and righteous , yet the border between bringing justice and bullying slowly disappears. The cultivation speed which should have been extremely fast is intentionally slowed down by the author by suddenly giving his enemies a power jump. It's like playing a racing game where after reaching first place the other cars suddenly receive a boost in speed. Trash like this is repeated, the higher stages are already presented and most of the future conflicts can already be intuited to a large margin. Competitions between kingdoms, empires, sects, internal strife, gloats of proud enemies that will get water boarded by the protagonist, these shits will repeat until the novel finally reaches its end.

In conclusion, read it, don't read it, do whatever you want. Yet, don't expect this novel to even try to get away from the usual cliches. As long as you don't have that much experience with Xianxia, you may enjoy it. <<less

Not bad. If you don't have other novels you're dying to read, this is a good option. It's what you would expect from a reincarnation wuxia novel. Certain elements of the plot remind me a lot of Peerless Martial God ("PMG"). There are a lot of convenient encounters for the MC. The situation with his martial spirit especially reminds me of PMG. Some differences though. Don't expect anything truly unique here. Still, it's really not bad.

Great novel, really enjoyable. Translation quality is good too. I really like the fact that he has a super OP position, just that he can't fully utilise it. It might not deviate much from regular Xianxia but I highly recommend it. Also his latent talent is in fact, very high, he can actually rise to power without OP treasures like most MCs, the treasures just speed up his growth process.

It does not get the credit it deserves and this story is waaaay to dope to just be a forum posting I think they need there own site or to be formerly invited to wuxiaworld it's good and the martial spirits makes the whole thing really dope if your not a hardcore reader of LN's and looking for something good and easy to follow I highly recommend even the community is great for this translation no hate involved when... more>> chapters drop just excstasy <<less

For anyone who criticize this novel for cliches are not good readers. You can't judge the whole novel by the early chapters translated. Please take note that it's over 2000 and still ongoing meaning it has several books and you can't compare the quality of a book from the previous one because it can improve. It's a good novel with a Lucky MC.

Ok first off, I have read to the current raw with a great machine translation. That being said, its still a machine translation so not the greatest of qualities. Now I love this story even with all the complaints about overused tropes.

First off the whole reincarnation thing doesn't factor in much to the story, besides his Body Metamorphose Scripture and the very rare mentions of earth. It wasn't like he was a god like being in his last life or had knowledge of the future. He was a 17 year... more>> old kid from earth that ended up being reborn on a martial arts world. Knowledge on earth would only be useful if he was like on middle earth and building a gun would make one side extremely strong. Seriously if anyone of you were transported to the Martial Spirit world, what advantages could you really have from having lived on earth?

Second his family. Now this is kind of a spoiler.

Spoiler

Later on he kills this somewhat "important" guy from a sect that his cousin and uncle invited to basically kill him, his dad, and his mother. He takes his father and mother away to the kingdom's capital city; leaving his other family members to died when the sect came for revenge.

[collapse]

Third the hide potential, people the people of earth does this all the time because its logical. Does a company or government say to their rivals or enemies, look over here were are building/making something that will gives us a complete advantage over everyone else? No they would most likely have spies implanted and try to commit sabotage to prevent them from succeeding. So it makes sense that the MC hides his power, because his very small family cant protect him. Now if he was the favorite son of a powerful empire that had countless strong protectors, then I can understand him revealing his true talent.

Though there is one thing I dislike about this story. It feels like the author doesn't even know where is going. For instant for awhile we knew of a highest cultivation level by name; lets call it leader. However there were a few people that were over that level, later there were alot of people past leader level. So whenever these peoples' cultivation was mentioned it was said like this oh he is exceeded leader level. It made me feel like the author hadn't thought of what exactly where his cultivation should end. <<less
