One of the best Xuanhuans out there. The MC is calculating and callous like Leylin (WoMW), and the story is really interesting so far with minimal use of plot armour. Plus, MC is like Yan Zhaoge screwing over typical xianxia protagonists.

Lots of plot twists and no cliche arrogant young masters.

Though the novel has some shortcomings, the amount of thrashing it receives in this site is undeserved. The writing style is mediocre and the characters are one-dimensional but it is still one of the best litrpg dungeon master stories out there.

The story is entertaining with no obvious plot-holes. The MC does stay ahead of the other demons but he was still within touching distance of the grand dukes. Yes, he does collect a lot of achievements and points but that is also true of the other demons whose power will... more>> be revealed towards the end. The quality of the game elements (numbers and types of stats, skills etc.) is comparable to LMS. The MC gets saved by deus ex machina a couple of times, but it is hardly at a rate comparable to the more popular novels out there.

Last but not least, I am grateful that the author stops at an appropriate number of chapters unlike some its contemporaries. A lot of the initial plot-holes are explained towards the final chapter and there is difference between devil and demon king. The MC is trying to become demon king not the devil who is like god.

P.S. Turtle-sama is awesome for translating at an incredible pace. <<less

Story: A wonderful take on xiaxia/xuanhuan genre. Game elements is kept to a minimum and you have to give credits to the author for his consistency which is rarely found in Chinese novels. There are no bittersweet moments in the story, basically MC gets done whatever he wants to do, albeit not in an over the top fashion.

Characters: MC is levelheaded, clever and like-able and most importantly doesn't get offended easily. There are many conceited characters but no "you offend me, I will kill you" type ones. The author tries... more>> to do justice to the original characters who are the inspiration for the disciples.

World Building: Game elements becomes less important as the story progresses. The cultivation level system is kept consistent. Alchemy and artifact refining skills are not elaborated.

TL;DR

An interesting read if you already acquainted with the genre. The MC is like-able, characters are great and world building is awesome. <<less

A wonderful story. Consistent world building and characters. The ending is a bit rushed but apart from that it is a good read. Characters are sensible and multi-dimensional. The level system becomes a little fuzzy towards the end. But there are no conspicuous plot-holes.

Shrouding the Heavens

Plotholes, Plotholes everywhere.

Starts off well with an amazing concept, discards all that turns sh*t later.

MC is super lucky and gets awesome treasures, later they are discarded without so much of an explanation. For example, that seed of the Bodhi tree or the Dao scripture he received. The interesting premise ends once MC starts cultivation, then its a cliche xianxia with everyone calling him trash and he beating them up. And, I had such high hopes reading the beginning, such a disappointment.

Running Away From The Hero!

I think I found my favorite novel. The writing style is immaculate, the characters are fascinating and the story-line is hilarious. It negates all the classic cliches of reincarnation stories - no cheat skill, no harem, a realistic MC. I can't wait for more chapters to get translated.

Sub-par world building and character development. The supposed genius MC makes terrible decisions all the time and does not use his cheat (Grimoire) to the full extent of its possibilities. The characters are unlikable and there is no consistency.

The author failed to deliver a satisfying ending to the story. Otherwise, it is a good read if you like litrpg.
