Soaring the Heavens


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

A striking man of mysterious origin and peerless talent, he looks back at the world, in all its entirety, with utter disdain. And yet, in the treacherous and unpredictable ultimate formation of the Boundless Secular World, he guards a breathtaking ancient qin with broken strings, waiting silently for the destined one to arrive!

A boy encounters him, and knows for the first time that the world beneath the Heavens is a fickle place. Not even demons, devils, ghosts and monsters can match the frivolity of human nature!

A slender physique, and jade-like beauty, but the sword that strikes between heaven and earth is not unlike a streaming rainbow!

The vastness of the starry sky, the seven emotions and six desires! Greed, anger and ignorance! The teachings of Buddha will grant you boundless strength!

A sea of blood will come, at the cost of all mortal beings full of honest hope!

The ghosts wail as the gods roar, but the sea of blood has no end!

Where, pray tell, is the path I should take?

Since there is no path, no matter how bitter and bloody the sea, even if my boat is made out of bones, I will soar to the heavens above!

Big giant fat warning for those like me who missed the Netorare tag before reading, this is a painful novel to read
... more>>

at least 3 of the love interests get Netorared including his adopted sister that appears

I give this warning because for many, the disgusting acts that happen to some of the love interests will ruin a novel regardless of other good points.

If you like Er Gen's stories, then this is a must read!! All the bad ratings are from the previously translated version that was not good.

What a great surprise! Was not expecting such an interesting story and fleshed out characters. Nothing less expected from Qidian (publisher).

First thing I do before deciding whether to read a novel or not, is check for publisher. Qidian is always my preferred one. They have the most quality novels out of all publishers that I've seen from personal experience. Then I check the... more>> group translating as this is always important. Lastly I might check the author and read the description.

On to the novel! I love adventure and this novel delivers. Most of the novels on this site are MMORPG/RPG leveling self fulfillment stories disguised as cultivation novels - not much plot, no character development or real writing. I won't reveal anything, but the MC is dropped into an adventure right from chapter 1 and has a goal in mind for his siblings. Cultivation at this point isn't even mentioned except in passing which I love as it keeps everything mysterious. Why would you reveal everything in the first chapter? Basic storytelling guys. Hell, even the random outlaw he meets has more development than some main characters from other novels.

In all, the author is really good, the translator is incredible, and the story is well thought out. I'd give it a 4 or 4.5 if I could but to offset the really horrible 1 star ratings, I will give it a 5. I seem to be doing this a lot as ratings on NU are really messed up. <<less

Oh.. Someone removed the Netorare Tag..
Well anyway saw some stuff telling that author is notorious for writting stories where heroines are either "Stolen" from the Mc or made to marry someone else..

With all that said and your ok with that. Read my February review and i'll leave it for you guys to judge

•OH MY GOD! It has a 'Netorare" Tag..

saw some not so reliable spoilers about that ntr and thought that mc is up to a bumpy ride... i... more>> don't really like ntr so ive done some not so deep research about this novel. then saw this novel (in qidian) rated as 9.1/10. Seeing that numerical ranking, ive decided to wait and see to see if i'll drop this novel or not

•This Novel gave me the same vibe with the novel "Lord Xue Ying"

If you've read IET's novels (LXY, DE, CD, ST) , then you might notice this author way of creational thinking (meaning bizzare ideas ex. That cave master, will and stuff) and novel's pacing was quite similar to his..

And here's some simple reminders for those new readers. According to what ive learn reading a lot of CN novel.

This novel is a xianxia novel, which means "Immortal Hero" and not the common XuanHuan genre novel (such as DMWG, WDDG, KOG, TMW, MW). While both genre starts with having obtain cheat opportunity/item. "Xianxia" trends the immortality path, meaning a thousand years of hard cultivating to reach immortality. While "Xuanhuan" are more of the Martial way path. Fighting to reach the pinnacle and be the strongest. If you hadn't notice xianxia mc's tend to train a month, year duration while xuanhuan tend to master their skills in 2-3 days. The former breakthrough every month or years. While the latter breakthrough every 3-10 days.. and thats the major difference ive notice so far. So its quite wrong comparing the two novel specially when they aint even the same genre.

Anyway. This novel has a good quality trans. Plot depth and a more realistic representation of a cultivation world, meaning as long as the author don't screw up then this novel has a lot of potential. Recommended for ST, DE and LXY fan. <<less

This is an excellent novel, and it begins right in the action. It differentiates itself from the normal cultivation stories in an interesting way. There are multiple characters who all have fleshed out personalities, goals or motivations. If I had anything to complain about so far is that the MC is the usual sort; Unnaturally strong willed and obedient when training, but not showing those qualities other times. Given everything else I've read so far and can surmise from the foreshadowing, the MC is a disappointment, however the novel has... more>> only just begun. It is inevitable that this review is flawed. Despite this, the beginning is so strong that the quality could drop from this point on and it would still be on a level above a lot of novels. <<less

Ok. So because of the english version of it was so interesting, I went to binge read the raws and I was not disappointed. The cliffhangers at the very end of each chapter kept making me crave for more and I cannot stop myself from putting my phone down! I love this CN and it differs from the other xianxia novels in its own unique way.

The novel itself does not focus much on cultivation which is good. Not only that, the training montage was more well written than any... more>> other stories I have read. And although the MC himself is not strong in the beginning, he's quite clever, using his wits to get him out of difficult situations. He might seem like a pushover right now

but the times will eventually change him and he will no longer be the same guy we know. Experience changes people and the MC is a fine example of that. And nobody can denied that humans can be fickle and selfish at times.

Even though it is harem but the MC doesn't go around collecting every single girls he sees without rhyme or reason unlike other typical harem novels. And he doesn't throw himself at every girls he see either which is great.

Even all the other characters that appeared were not for show and had their own stories to tell. However, the story itself is probably one of the realest I have ever read. Things are very grim, coldblooded and heartless in the world the author created. Conversations exchanged between the characters are full of double-edge swords and hidden meanings. What differs from the usual cultivation novels is that the author had shone spotlights on the 'fights' between government officials as well.

All in all, I highly recommend this novel! <<less
