Skyfire Avenue is a street that is 2048 meters long. There are 168 stores here, and each of the store owners is an extremely powerful adept. The Avenue does not permit any vehicles or any robots to pass through it, much less mecha. Even the patrolling police must move about on foot. This is because this is a street for pedestrians, a lane for nobles, hidden away within this high technology world. Lan Jue, the greatest of the mercenaries, code-named ‘Zeus’, has secluded himself here in Skyfire Avenue after the death of his wife. The name of his shop is “Zeus’ Jewelry Store”, and here in Skyfire Avenue, he has been given the title, Jewel Master.

This series has so many good reviews that I told myself I had to find out why. The synopsis doesn't tell you much about it. From the very start I found the story very refreshing and it was so addicting I read 200 chapters in one go without stopping. There are good points and bad points but overall this series is one of the betters ones. After a while the freshness stops being so fresh and the author resorts to the same cliches we're all used to, but for many... more>> it won't stop the story from being enjoyable.

In short, some good points that I personally enjoyed: character interactions are very enjoyable, main character is a good guy, refreshing cultivation system, most side characters are fleshed out (as usual just the guys though).

Here are some bad points: Although the story isn't a harem, most women fall in love with him and he will never tell them off until they either die off or the author just stops mentioning them altogether. The main heroine is just a terrible character. For about 300 chapters all we know about her is that she is the most beautiful woman in the world and she is so much of a saint she literally washes the feet of old infirmed people as a hobby in her spare time. Then all of a sudden she has a super special cultivation and the main character can only get stronger when she is near him. Also, if you don't like heroines falling in love with the main character because she was "accidentally" raped then you really won't like this story. <<less

I just love this one so much.

Definitely one of the best romance I've ever read in Chinese web novels. It has development, it has tension, and it has legit healthy relationship (though not so healthy at the very beginning, which starts at something sick, but at least the plot armor kinda makes the excuse manageable.)

It has a cast of women without going harem, which is probably why there are people downvoting this one. Like, all those pretty girls and MC does not deliver the harem, what a blasphemy,... more>> right? MC's red haired best friend has something to say about that, but I can't remember it, lol. The MC stays loyal(?) to his wife, though it's hard to say what's in store for the current main love interest.

About the best friends, the cast is what I love about this title as well. MC is OP by his own rights, but the side casts aren't forgettable masks that can be called by any other name without changing the plot whatsoever. I especially love the brothers, nice interaction. The bromance game between the main trio is strong, and all the BL gags really makes them the highlight of the interactions inside. It might push some people away, but I love it, lol.

The details and the worldbuilding! Even at the beginning, when it starts slow, I'm glad for the enriched descriptions which, for me, is satisfying without making me bored. The drops of hints about MC's back story just makes it all the more fun to expect. Unlike MCs that start from zero to hero, an established background makes the story really distinguishable.

And the sci-fi-ish background is a nice mesh up between futuristic, alien-related stuffs, then VR technology, but with hand control you'd expect from non-VR MMORPG novel titles, with power systems that's fantasy-based, and a cast of side character that I just find refreshing, especially after twists and more revelation, lol.

Great and charming stuffs. I'm going to recommend readers to hold back reading after there's a good chunk of chapters to read, though. <<less

This is the kind of novel that you can read for hours upon hours and feel that not a few minutes have passed. It achieves this not through the cliche xianxia way of making the audience anticipate a power-up in cultivation and then beating a hated enemy, but through a deep story with multiple different arcs/events that build it up.

For the romance part, the author slyly puts in hints in the interactions that will make you think of a bunch of different scenarios. When the story is revealed, you can't... more>> help but think back to the interactions and admire TJSS's superb planning.

All in all, this is one of my favorite novels. I think reading about the luxuries is pretty relaxing and resets the pace. I only wish there were more novels like this where the mc is strong from the beginning and have a genuine story rather than making half the story dedicated to cultivation. <<less

This novel is a true masterpiece and, like most, start off slowly. Don't give up after the first couple of chapters, they're a very important introduction of the MC's morale and standing.

In this novel, instead of the author saying MC is awesome, refined, etc, he shows why. He shows you the MC through his actions and does TJSS know how to do that.

This is my favorite work from him, and I definitely recommend you read it no matter what

Now this is interesting. A futuristic space mecha/super power novel by TJSS? You know that it is going to be awesome. I read about seven of the different books of TJSS and know a little about the rest. The result? SA is my favorite work by him. First off, the characteristic writing style of TJSS = humor and detail is a huge plus to this story. And, it is a fresh setting. The MC is called Zeus. ZEUS GODDAMIT!! He is OP and he is OP from the start.... more>> Only that there are others who are even more OP. But, it means that you don't have to go through much leveling up.

The side characters have got a huge role to play and their characters are master strokes coming from the author. THE ROMANCE!!! One of THE best romance in all of Chinese novels that I have read. And it till isn't confirmed romance (till 241). Any way, you just know that they are going to end up together.Add to it the slight bit of mystery/unknown history and you got yourself a series that you won't regret picking up. I myself caught on late to it but I read the 241 available chaps (at the time of this review) within 3 days. Only thing is that sometime I feel like it would be nice if it had a prequel or something, covering the growth of the monarchs and also the love story between zeus and hera. Could be that it will be covered later in the series. Also, it has only 900+ chapters. I mean, REGULAR size chapters. That is a big plus. Just go for it. (You might find the action sequences a bit drawn out but that is probably because there are only a few sequences till 241). <<less

I don't understand how anybody could make it through the first chapter let alone the first 20.

Entire chapters dedicated to nothing but background exposition whilst nothing is revealed about the plot at all. The first conversation is about eating ice cream. Unbelievably boring.

Have you ever wondered: "What if a Japanese light novel and a Xianxia story had a baby?" No? Me either, but thats what this pathetic piece of shit is.

There are MANY MANY problems with this, but to name just a few...

1. Like any light novel protagonist he's kind of a pu**y, hides his powers, and is OP as f**k.

2. As with 90% of all harem based light novels, nothing comes to pass with any of them except the bitchy annoying one. The rest are ignored for a loyal love in... more>> the end.

3. It's so goddamn slow and when it's not the cliffhangers will kill you, if you insist on reading this, bookmark it and wait six months until you have some saved.

4. We're 1/3 of the way done and the plot has barely managed to appear, but worst of all #1 is still going on, all of them.

I know some people enjoy a story like this, or like ultimate anti-hero, or Danmachi, but it's just not for me at all. It's interesting, I guess, but it contains all the flaws a light novel would have while adding bits of Xianxia here and there which makes you keep reading, and only prolongs the suffering you'll receive. Dropping this now, before I get too invested like I did with Martial World x.x <<less

Get past the first few chapters about Lan Jue’s wine tasting and you will be treated to a very special story. Rich character profiles along with a solid storyline. Quality writing overall where fights don’t come down to who yells louder. Fights never gets old as the author have found a way to make each and every fight much more vivid and captivating then the last.

It’s a shame for those who stopped reading the series because of the slow start. Let me address some of the criticism I see. This... more>> isn’t a weak to strong MC. Think more Cowboy Bebop where the reader is thrown right in the middle of the story and we slowly find out more about the MC’s past as the story progress. This isn’t a story where the MC is pitted against increasingly more powerful adversary. I don’t see this as a flaw as the author can focus more on the story and not on traditional power crawl.

Definitely recommend this story. However, I will admit that the highs are high and the lows are low. The interesting parts of the story will have you completely engrossed, but the author does digress from the main story often enough and these almost slice of life stretches could be quite dull. <<less

Completely underrated.

The current rating of 4.1 really doesn't reflect what this novel deserves. I imagine most(not all) of the 1-3 star ratings came from people who read the beginning chapters when there weren't at least 50 already translated or people with little patience.

Try reading at least up to chapter 50 before you decide to drop it.

I made it up to chapter 50 which is an achievement considering the extremely slow pace and utter unlikablity of nearly every character in this novel.

I found the MC to be an utter snob and was not able to generate a single connection with him. All of the main characters looked down upon everyone else for failing to spend endless hours studying the "art" of wines.

If I could give this novel less a single star I would. The endless tedium and nose in the sky MC make... more>> this novel unreadable. <<less

I dont understand why this novel only get 3.9/5 rating atm.

When i saw this in WW, try to reading the synopsis, I can’t find my self to read it because of ‘mecha’ tag. After few more weeks and also because i run out of new novel chaps, finally bracing myself to read SA. The result, I completely like this novel. yeah the start will boring some of you, especially with the ‘wine’ stuff. Even i don’t know anything about wine and other drink stuff, but i just treat it... more>> as the characters building/world building.

SA is a fresh wuxia story thanks to it’s ‘mecha’ tag. i like the romance, the MC also one of my favorite (not so OP), ahh.. I almost forget, the author also bring a little bit of greek mythology which make it more interesting.

I recommend u to try this novel, u’ll like it.

(SA currently in my top 3 list. other interesting novel: duoluo dalu, desolation era, BTTH, HJC, GOS, GDK, ISSTH) <<less

Make sure you actually read it before making any statements.

Jeez! So hateful. I saw a damn review of a person who only read chapter 1 and he dares to conclude a single chapter is worth the whole novel? Meh. It's his loss, not knowing the greatness of a modern, futuristic story set up where Mechs are not everything, there is power gems, ranks, and unique powers called Discipline. When it comes to plot, actually it's my first reading about a widowed young man. He's badass though, powerful, influential and... more>> handsome. Meh, the rest of this story's greatness, just discover it yourself. <<less

As others have stated before, the story takes a slower approach and there is a good amount of content about high class luxury foods/drinks and etiquette. Really recommend to read this novel, it has it’s moments of high tension, comedic moments, and the romance that just drives all the readers crazy. Heck you could probably even take what you learn about the foods, drinks, and etiquette and use it in your daily life. 6 out of 5

I originally tried this novel because it’s by TJSS, author of Douluo Dalu, hoping to find a time filler as I wait for my faves. I quit reading it quite early thinking, huh, what the hell is this. So….quite a bit of time later, as I circumvent all the popular and potentially interesting novels, I finally decided to revisit Skyfire Avenue. Why? I realized that this is TJSS latest novel and if you have attempted to find fillers, you probably have read/try his other works seeing... more>> the improvements-evolution that the author has made over the years. Well.. Thank GOD I did as SA definitely delivers. The author have borrowed the best elements from his earlier works resulting in this glorious read. You see a little bit of Child of Light (lightheartedness), Bing Huo Mo Chu (topics diversity), Heavenly Jewel Change (comedy), and Douluo Dalu (world/character building). This novel brings it all together. Foreal, read it, follow it, and thank me later. <<less

I really enjoyed this novel way more than any other xianxias or wuxias because the author doesn't just throw villain after villain at the mc when oh all the sudden plot armor or level up in power for no reason.... This novel is slow pace but is not a boring slow paced story, also even though I don't ever understand the wine or food stuff I find it interesting to read as a change of pace from fighting also, my fav part so far in this novel is his explanation... more>> of what a noble is, idk about you guys but it gets my blood rushing! <<less

Me like many others first tried reading this when it just started being translated and got turned away by how different and slow it was in the beginning. But don’t let the beginning mislead you into thinking that this novel is anything but great. It has the best world building that i have read and a fantastic attention to detail that really immerses you into the story. The fighting scenes are fantastically written as well, some of the best TJSS has to offer.

For the people who enjoy the crazy fast... more>> pace of most Xianxia where the only focus is the fighting and cultivation, then this probably isn't for you. The chapters that some people say are useless and boring are the real meat of the story. These chapters are what create such a fantastic dynamic between all the characters. Everyone has a story and TJSS does a great job of building up side characters and not throwing them away. He doesn't just say what motivates people and expects you to fill in the rest he actually shows you and he shows you in increasingly interesting and entertaining ways.

I feel bad for not giving this novel a better shot in the beginning because right now it is with out a doubt at the very top of my list. <<less

Skyfire Avenue!!!! Aaahhh!!!! Fangirling screams here. Haha. Seriously though, I love this novel. I never thought I would read a novel with a mecha tag (because i don't like too futurisque type of novels) but with how SA is written, I enjoyed it instead. I'm so hyped for this. All I wish is that our esteemed translators would continue to do this til the end. I give you my support. Thumbs up!

I'll start with the conclusion: Read it if you like fancy special effects and want to read about uncommon gourmet feasts. Don't read it if constant minor inconsistencies and pseudoscience bother you.

Good: This book has cool action, fun character interaction, and lots of quality, detailed descriptions of various types of food and wine. The main character and supporting cast are likeable.

Bad: The unrealism extends beyond superpowers and sci-fi elements: The beautiful women all are attracted to the main character (well, okay, he's just that manly and cool; maybe I'd be... more>> attracted too), but the main character is... extremely unmanly when it comes to women. For a non-virgin guy to get jumpy at the slightest sexual tension with a woman he's been close to for years is strange to a point where it can't be considered "faithfulness to his dead wife", especially when it happens repeatedly. If it was just that, you could say he was afraid bad things would happen to them if he got close to them, but he keeps emphasizing that he'll keep them close to protect them. So it gets weirder and weirder as the story progresses and you meet new "female acquaintances" of his.

... And for me, it just bothers me that someone with the title and abilities of "Zeus" is being faithful to his wife "Hera". There are enough inconsistencies in the mythological references (abilities and titles changing from one section to another, various relationships like the ones between angels being incorrect) that it hurts my enjoyment. And while I liked the meals, anyone who doesn't care about fine wine or food might find that part to be overly detailed. Oh, and the science part is really... tenuous. For the amount of explaining, it's very unrealistic. <<less

Good story, good way of writing. The only downside is some of the chapters are written too detailed. Unnecessary especially when the event is not notable. Maybe it is just me or maybe not but I only remember the part of the story when it is exciting. There is a part on this novel where the author defines the most minute detail then the most significant thing that happens after is the MC walks in and do something worth noting.

Overall; I recommend this if you are into sold novels or... more>> novels you mostly seen on libraries. Good plot and written semi-formally. Just skip the definition of insignificant details in the story and you're all good.

keklel I will answer your question; that's just because you didn't read anything at all. You forgot to delete the status of 1st chapter you are in when you wrote your review. <<less

A mediocre story. I read everything on Wuxia by default, that's how I got into this. Too much BS that mars what could be a somewhat interesting story. Not much really happens (read up to chap 264). The conflicts lack any tension. The author is known for plot, but the plot is definitely weak. The dialogue is garbage a lot of the time... I don't know what kind of audience it's aimed at. Skim read it.

Pretty good so far. Author starts off the first 15 chapters kinda weird, but after that it slowly progresses nicely. Get past chapter 15 and you are hooked for sure.

The romance is progressing nicely too, however there are a few WTF moments, but will not spoil them as they have impact on the story. Let's just say you will enjoy the romance in this story. Some have said it lacks romance, but if you read carefully and pay attention, it is flowing nicely and is building like a snowball rolling... more>> down a mountain,

Tho it has the Harem inclinations it is NOT harem, this is definitely one guy, one girl story.

Action wise is not as much as other stories but when it does have action it does not lack impact. Mecha fights are decent and exciting.

There are a TON of side characters and all have their roles and are not discarded after a few chapters like some stories. Once introduced they will reappear and have some impact. Each character is unique and brings something to the story. The MC's Harem (I call them that and you will to after reading) is fun and OP. Think of the Harem as his sisters. This should not be a turn off as there is a love interest!

The story does suffer from excess info on frivolous stuff, especially talking about nobility, wines, food etc, but it adds to the story and is a premise of the story itself as it sets the mood and characteristics of the MC. Basically the MC enjoys the finer things in life and enjoys a certain lifestyle, at the same time he is also a person with high moral standards, but will break those morals for his loved ones if needed.

This is story where patience most definitely is needed and to read in segments (suggest 10+ chapters at a time). Reading single chapters. you will lose interest fast and miss out on the overall story. <<less
