Castle of Black Iron

Like the other reviews stated, it starts poorly. Seems like the author was trying to make it "edgy", but it just came across immature and awkward. It definitely improved later on, though there was still a weird obsession with s*x.

It's kind of a pity, because the unique cultivation and inner world were actually interesting. The plot was fine, but nothing special. Plenty of familiar tropes: arrogant bullies, a "ruthless" protagonist, etc.

I dropped it after the protagonist chased a girl, forced a kiss, and tried to rape her.

I've updated my review. The translation quality greatly improves after the first ~40 chapters. If you can hang in there until then, you're golden. I'm bumping my review from 2 stars to 3 stars. If they could fix those first chapters, I'd change it to 4 stars.

Original review below:

Story is fine, nothing special. Pretty typical cultivation novel. But the translation quality is frustrating. Most of the translation is good, with correct grammar and good sentence structure. But it's also sprinkled with odd mistakes. Stuff like "mystiques" instead of "mysteries", or... more>> "ravished" instead of "enraged". And sometimes, you'll get some garbled nonsense.

Example:

Little did Lian Rufeng thought that Lin Xun seemed not be aware at all, neither eluding nor stopping his chasing on one of the guardians.

You know what the author is trying to say from context, it just takes some effort. I kept reading for a while, hoping the translation would improve, but I finally gave up.

If you enjoy a little extra work with your reading, then go ahead. Otherwise, there are plenty of similar novels on this site with excellent translations. Pick one of them instead. <<less
