One dimensional protagonist who is hell bent on killing demons because his father told him Demons are evil ~_~ It's like humanity is totally good while Demons are pure evil. The real world doesn't works like that. No race thinks themselves as evil... even the most heinous crime has a reason behind it. A life is a life whether it belongs to a human or a demon. But in this story the demons are pigs to be slaughtered by MC. (There is no absolute good or ultimate evil...... more>> that's what I like about the other Chinese novels like ISSTH or Xian Ni).

The other problem is that the MC has no personality. <<less

Shen Yin Wan Zuo tells the story of mankind war against demons from the perspective of a child that has been granted extraordinary strength and fortitude to take key role in the said war. We follow his journey and development, how he used the materials he was given smartly and righteously, with plenty of supports from people around him, for the good of the mankind.

An opposite to Douluo Dalu, another work of Tang Jia San Shou that hints at cynicism against human and the world, Shen Yin Wan Zuo... more>> sticks with normative ethics. The MC is an ideal human being who is loyal, generous, diligent, filial, wise, etc. On one side, it made for a good story material. Furthermore, Tang Jia San Shou clearly excels at character and plot development among other xianxia writers. On the other hand, the MC perfection may nauseate us who have realized that the world is not some place where we can survive by being exceedingly kind.

I decided to write this review as to give a few counter argument to some negative reviews which I find baseless or bias

first is about they said the MC is killing the demons without reason, I mean for goodness sake are you sane? Invaders from another world came & started killing humanity which lasted thousands of years, are you just gonna wait like a livestock? Btw around the hissing cave mission it tells that the demons are not evil they are just fighting for supremacy & survival,

next someone said... more>> that the characters are boring, lets just say your just disappointed that you don't like good natured MCs you like ruthless MC that are illogical like ATG which I stopped reading where women don't care even if the MC massacres INNOCENT people just because they belong to the same sect & then the MC neglects his woman & child to marry another woman. , The characters in SYWZ atleast are not neglected some even have their own romance, and LHC team member are very unique, I mean a priest that cant heal, a mage that cant attack, an unstable summoner, and they atleast show some personality, as for LHC though a good guy he is still merciless, and though OP atleast not the whole he can beat those above his level just because he's special.

and lastly though I kinda undestand his point on this one, the way cai'er's parent treated her is hypocrisy, well from my understanding her parents though reluctant still treated her harshly is because of their situation & position, they are at war with the demons & humanity needs those capable heroes with potential and unfortunately for cai'er she was born special so her circumstances wasn't something her parents can't ignore because its for the sake of humanity,

seriously they are in a world where the demon god emperor has a if in terms of level 1 million units while the strongest of humans are probably around 100k+ only and the demon side has insane numbers and 72 demon gods talk about unbalanced playing field <<less

This is actually a great story which I personally love. Some would have a different opinion, others might agree but I do believe this is a great story.

The story starts of a bit slow but as you read on, the story will progress. So far this is a novel that doesn’t bore me with too many chapters or frustrate me with a very short chapter (update).

The narration is third person, as it tells the tale of a generically good main character. The main character lacks any initiative as events happen to him and he just is generically nice, honest, and boring. The main character lacks interesting qualities or traits. His comrades are generically boring as well, execpt for the main waifu who is the most interesting character in the novel (not that’s saying much).

The pacing is terrible as the first tournament takes more than a hundred chapters to get through, which I would not... more>> mind if the tournament had anything going on, but it was just a grind to get through. Afterwords the MC generically kill demons and is generically good and honest. To be honest the demon faction does not seem that bad.

Like most wuxia, the main concept of the novel is some overpowered protagonist with some legendary father figure training him to become stronger than him. It's all about cultivation, training, cultivation, training, repeat, ad infinitum.

You know how crappy wuxia writers write long "details" in paragraph form that are either redundant or blatant unnecessary recaps to fill pages?

This author is no different. If you're looking for a barely passable trashy series to get you through your escapist needs, this novel will suffice. Otherwise, if you want quality content, go elsewhere.... more>>

Read the entire novel in Chinese, and I feel like some of the feeling and beauty of the novel is lost during translation. In review of the actual novel and plot itself, it is very well-rounded and there are no loose ends. It's definitely cheesy at times, but the novel is a very good break from all the bloodthirsty, harem, and indecisive MC's out there. Although it is pretty slow-moving, I really enjoyed the story. Not only that, the author also focuses on other characters besides the MC. The power-ups... more>> don't always seem like it is just dropped in the MC's lap, and I don't recall any scenes where something is too far-fetched. The story is quite decent, albeit idealistic (because the MC is basically perfect), but it's definitely a nice read if you like happy endings, closure, side couples, and team power-ups.

Just like in Douluo Dalu, I dropped during the first main tournament. I can't the long drawn out boring repetitive tournaments this author writes. Other then that it was okay.

Very, very, very good novel. It has good action and an interesting world. While there are many battles where he has to fight alone, there are also many team battles where he fights with his teammates. The enemies are demons from another world, who invaded humanity and transformed many of them into demons. MC is extremely talented holy knight (similar to paladin). Other than holy knight there are other classes like assassin, warrior, mage, priest, summoner and maybe even more, each with different abilities. MC is much more honorable... more>> and less viscous than other usual xianxia heroes, but when it’s time to fight or kill he won’t back down. Main lead’s love interest is also very strong and with similarly great potential, she’s not someone who needs protection all the time and has enough power to fight side by side with MC. I read till chapter 270 and story gets better and better.

PS. Some people are complaining that he kills those poor innocent demons, but if any race or being wiped out millions of humans and mutated some of them into monsters, who the hell would question whether they are good or bad... just kill those mother f**kers!!! Plus demons have upper hand right now in the story but I do not see any demons fighting for peace... f**k them! <<less

One of the masterpiece by TJSS. Though plot line is similar to DD and seems like MC is hell bent on killing the Demons and Demon Gods. Everything seems like demons are bad. But they too have their circumstances. Those who say that MC is mindlessly killing the demons, my question is what will you do when some alien species tries to invade and tries to make humanity its slave? Will you negotiate? It is one of those series where MC doesn't take the dark way, but rather stays in... more>> the light way. For humanity he is ready to fight his own, for love he is ready to give up his belief. Wait till you read to the end of the series that's when the plot thickens... <<less

This is a a really interesting story to read. The MC is in a monogamous relationship with someone that is akin to a childhood sweetheart. The action is good, the MC is definitely not a wimp, and is actually a high level genius. Granted, it's not to the extent that he has story-breaking powers of op-ness, but he is strong enough to stomp at his level. He also is one of the more hard working protagonists, and despite being slightly naive in some aspects, he is, in general, quite intelligent.... more>> The big bad's in this story are also not one-dimensional, and have an interesting personalities <<less

Had read this novel a while back and I must say, this is one TJSS's top works. Tbh, I am writing this because the reviews really irked me as well as some of the comments in the forum. Its not that I think all people should have exactly same preference as me, but if your really bashing on this novel please give decent supporting reason.

The whole world is really well thought out and has been described pretty good as well. I have read lot of novels here (maybe more... more>> than 100) and this one has the best fighting scenes, hands down. TJSS is really good at describing fight scenes and he outdid himself here. Power system is similar to that in other novels, but it has its own characteristics which keep it interesting. Almost every fight has strategy involved. If you are one of those you likes reading about a battle in one sentence, then this is just, not for you.

Coming on to romance, this is decent, sweet romance element, lot better than most Action/Martial Arts novels. But just dont expect even chapter to have dooey stuff. Just remember this is primarily an Action/Martial Arts novel.

Moving on towards the MC, hes is pretty generic with amazing talent. Obviously he get his fair share of armor and luck (Show me one novel which doesnt have this element). Lot of people mention abt the fact that hes too good, which is total bullsh*t. No idea what they are smoking up. He is good to friends and ruthless to his enemies. If you want MC to randomly rape/kill his friends, then I will say again- STOP READING, LEAVE NOW.

I feel that TJSS doesnt get enough credit for foreshadowing and building things up, which become completely clear after 100s of chapters. Lot of the titbits are given out throughout the novel regarding why exactly the 'present situation' arose. Coming to wrong conclusions because of some of the wrong information given out by the characters who themselves have misconceptions make for good twists and turns when the true story is revealed. Ending a novel seems to be a pretty tough thing to do (not that I have ever tried), with most of the authors making a mess out of it or just not good enough. Fortunately this novel has one of the best endings among the novels I have read here and I thing you will be pretty satisfied.

So summing up, this is xuanhuan novel which sticks to its core elements pretty well. What puts it apart from its contemporaries great story with no major plot holes and inconsistencies. Nicely thought out story with great ending. Fighting scenes are its highlight. This is not going to turn the world upside down, but make a fun and engrossing read. If you are even a bit into this genre, you should try it out.

Like Douluo Dalu, a nice classic novel with good plot and character development and romance. The MC in this novel is more of an innocent nice guy though (he's a little less innocent later on when he becomes a leader, out of necessity). Lots of humor too! Definitely one of the writer's better-written novels.

Decent setting and characters, though the MC seems one-dimensional with the author constantly emphasizing his good looks and devotion to a single love interest. The setting seems to be a Chinese interpretation of a Western fantasy with knights and magic. The MC himself reads out somewhat like a World of Warcraft Paladin who can freely use a tanking and dps spec as he wish.

A good novel in the sense that its very straightforward, light comedy and interesting chars yet not as good as douluo. Combat is nice and the MC is a rarely seen type as he is fairly "Normal" no weird deviant here he is a just guy.

Though MC isn't as fun as other MCs from other novels, it is refreshing to see a an "ideal soldier" MC once in a while. Everything he does is for the good, it is the complete opposite of MCs who fall to the demon path.


Characters are developed very nicely, author is really good in this department. All of them have their own stories and all of them get their boos at the end. Marriages and couples everywhere.


The main problem with the story is that some plots could have been better, but they are readable. The best thing of the story is at the end, oh ho ho my tears ran dry.


Try it, its good. I actually had it in me to finish it in Chinese. That should give you a hint.

The story got MC with no character :D. But all the rest is awesome. It starts with prodigy young boy who wants to become a knight. And well he became a knight. Quite typical, gets a teacher, father is godlike knight, meets the girl falls in love at first sight, gets a magical beast companion and then some tournament, creating a party, Final Boss is Maou. Well the important thing is that all characters are unique and there are not any retarded villains as of now. So quite refreshing. Add... more>> the fact that his girlfriend is a yandere and his mount is regularly growing new heads. His team is full of misfits and the mage is a drug dealer. So it actually becomes really interesting and funny in a way. Author shows us that even a typical set up can bring something new to xianxia genre. So if u have't read it yet go and start now. You won't regret it :D <<less

This is my favorite Chinese web novel.

One of the best things about it is that Sealed Divine Throne does not go on needlessly like so many others. I can't remember how many Chinese web novels I lost interest in after 10 volumes but they keep going on and on for another 25 or 30 volumes.

Another important thing is the group dynamic each person has their strengths and personality. Unlike most novels where the main character is so over powered he/she leaves friends behind like floating clouds, new friends and... more>> foes are then written up halfheartedly leaving much to be desired.

The story isn't bad, but (so far) the plot is really corny. Whether it's the MC's one-dimensional personality or the whole 'golden knight in shining armor' thing, if there were no deaths in the series you'd think it was meant for children. Not to mention, the only side of the MC's personality that isn't one-dimensional is the romance, which is totally bugged. The MC pledges his eternal love to a female character simply because she's stronger than him and concedes a match to him so that he can save face...... more>> that's the sort of thing you see in shounen harem plots, but usually in reverse roles. This itself probably doesn't make the story bad, and it's most likely just my personal preference, but I can't relate to an OP MC who falls in love with an even more OP girl simply because she lets him save face, it just feels really forced. Moreover, the tag Protagonist Loyal to Love Interest is more like Protagonist falls in love with the first girl his own age that he meets. It's a really shallow romance, and so far about a third of the chapters have been revolving around this romance. But I feel like a lot of these complaints aren't objective but rather just my personal opinion, so going by the quality of the story I think it's worth 3 stars <<less

Plot:
The plot of this novel is not much different from others in essence. Reaching the Apex is the central idea but with a permanent enemy race, demons, added in the mix. Thus the overall plot remains very focused and engaging.

MC:
He has a more jack of all trades and master of none kind of temperament which nicely supplements his leader role. Though he may come as a bit nauseating because of his near perfect hero of justice personality but its a welcome break from the usual arrogant types.... more>>

BUT he is only a hero of justice when it comes to humans, towards demons, he is all kinds of despicable. So the personality is not very concrete and rather all over the place...

Characters:
Characters are super awesome, their interactions are the best part of the story.

Romance:
There is a healthy dose of it every once in a while, the innocent teen love that is which is portrayed in an extremely cute way. The MC has only one girl, who is extremely OP so it doesn't seem there would be a harem in the future.

Writing:
As long as someone is speaking, the writing remains very engaging and immersive. The author has a very bad habit of over explaining stuff. Especially the fights are very detailed and can span many pages with each strike sometimes detailed in paragraphs! So about 25% of the content can be skipped with no loss in enjoyment or immersion.

Overall:
Being a very experienced novel reader, this novel has stricken me as a very fresh take on the usual tropes with great plot and characters. The MC not being arrogant is another thing which makes this novel more believable. The non-existent arrogant enemies popping here and there and crowds of bystanders shouting about MC's stupidity and wanting death etc is also a very welcome thing.

The bloatware gets reduced quite a bit later but fight sequences become unbelievable. The main pair becomes unfairly over powered with no justifying techniques. The author starts to say it like "because of his all the other strengths", thus making him defeat characters over twice as more powerful. Even though they have the same abilities or even better.

I would have liked that they lose battles against enemies twice as stronger at least so as to maintain the sanctity of the cultivation ladder. <<less
