This is the best modern cultivation novel I've ever read, if you were like me and were put off by certain low reviews or have disliked modern settings in the past, just give it a try and you wont regret it. Both the translation and story quality is excellent, and the writing is definitely a level above most of the novels on this site. As the translator has said, it's pretty slow in terms of development so far but instead of being a minus I would almost say it's a... more>> plus. The slowness isn't because of pointless tournament arcs, verbose descriptions cultivation, or random filler, but is just because a lot of development in terms of plot and characters occurs. Overall, you can tell the author has put a lot of effort into worldbuilding such that a modern cultivation setting makes sense, and you can tell the translator has put in a lot of effort too.

Give this story a try, I'd hate for it to disappear due to lack of interest. Many thanks to the translator for their hard work. <<less

I usually don't write reviews but I'm just disappointed. Sure it's not like it was anything groundbreaking, but I enjoyed book one so it kinda felt like a punch to the gut that when it hit book two. Without going into much detail, it went into badly written powerup montage and weird "gotta rub them boobs" territory, almost as if the author changed and decided he had to shoehorn in standard JP ecchi antics and ruin any real sense of character personality.

Seems like people say it's not (?) a harem,... more>> which might at least say something for characters being written somewhat properly, but it really seems like it's headed that way so take that as you will. I tried twice and actually can't bring myself to read more.

Pretty unfortunate that it seems like authors can't or don't stick to their original ideas, or end up pandering to readers like this. But who knows, maybe the author was just like this all along. <<less
