Alright, let us begin:

The story follows a young man called Yang Ye, A person with mediocre talent, but has a fierce, no fear mentality.

He is the kind of MC who values hard work more than talent.

... more>> His main motivation is to protect his loved ones and to do that, he is willing to kill (a lot, I mean it).

-- Main Character:

The story starts as one of the common background stories of MC being a "tr*sh".

Now while early chapters of the novel may suggest or imply that MC has a very good talent, he actually does not.

However, in terms of hard work and perseverance, no one can beat him.

Throughout the story, the MC does mature and changes, although I would argue he does not change a lot, and at that point in the story (chapters), it was just too late.

His main principle is, as long as you don't mess with him, he won't mess with you.

However, this principle sadly is kinda overused in this novel as story arcs (yes, arcs).

As usual, the MC is not actually a tr*sh, it was just because he had something that would, later on, made him special.

-- Other Character:

Since the novel has 2795 chapters, there is a lot of characters.

If we're talking about the amount of characters that stayed with the MC from the early chapters to further late novel chapters, I would say not that many (excluding harem members).

Will they stay relevant? Kinda, only when the plot demands it.

Will the harem stay relevant? Refer to harem section

As for character development:

Below average.

A lot of characters in this novel will come and go without proper development.

Some characters at a certain point in the story will almost never be mentioned again.

Can't be that bad?

Spoiler

For example:

Mc's little sister is one of the most important and probably the longest one that stays with MC

Does the author gave her further development? NO

Maybe she does not have talent? WRONG, her talent is MUCH better than MC

In the later arc, she is almost never mentioned/developed, even less than some harem members

Another example is the Mink, she is pretty much nonexistent around late novel chapters

[collapse]

--World Building:

    • Geo: To put it simply, Not too complicated, without giving a spoiler, The author usually keep is as simple as Northern, Southern, Eastern, Western, and Central Region.
    • Cultivation: As a whole, it's okay.

      Good idea, Poor implementation.

      The cultivation in this novel does not follow 1 - 9 level/stage template (which is good imo).

      Some cultivation realm actually has a decent background or explanation behind it and give the cultivator certain power. Very few will be just a realm w/o any special power with some explanation (oh, you're stronger now). Too bad only a certain few realms ever developed and used properly in the story especially in the middle and late novel chapters.

      Breakthrough journey:

      Meh.

      If you're hoping something like:

      - MC flies through the sky and breaks the heaven punishment, or

      - MC endured and fight with heaven lightning tribulation, or

      - MC has to enter a certain state and survived to enter the new realm.

      You will be disappointed
    • Fighting: Actually not bad.

      Pretty good actually on some point.

      Most of the fighting does have flow and descriptions.

      Rarely you will find something like 1 slap or 1 punch kill just because I have higher realm than you.
    • Auxiliary Technique: Absolutely underdeveloped

      Rune Mastery: Very early auxiliary technique that was critical to MC's early development and strength.

      Too bad, this technique is Never mentioned and developed again, it was abandoned very early in the story (considering the whole 2795 chapters).
Another important Aux tech that was abandoned and once was a plot point in the story.

It was introduced quite early too, but since the translation probably hasn't mentioned it, here's a spoiler tab.

Spoiler

Pill/Dan Mastery:

It was introduced around the early novel chapters too.

The author introduces it as he wants the MC to learn it and becomes one of his strengths.

He actually NEEDS to learn it in order to save someone.

But then never mentioned again.

Gone!, No sect, No power, There is no character in the whole novel that knows, or do Pill/Mastery!

It was almost like the author realized how much effort and world-building he needed to invest and just decided NOPE, screw that.

Let's leave a plot hole instead.

[collapse]

--Romance:

Well, it is no secret that this novel is a Harem novel.

If you have read my other reviews, you probably know that I like the Harem genre.

The harem in this novel IMO is pretty meh. Maybe Early to Mid novel chapters are still pretty good. But in the later novel chapters the harem is not really important or a focus anymore.

There are quite a lot of members actually.

Although you could argue what is a lot since I won't spoil the numbers.

The reason why IMO it was meh because from around Mid novel chapters the harem members are rarely developed or mentioned with the exception of very few members that always or usually still be in the story,

It was even more sad when I can't even remember their exact name or numbers even though I just finished the novel.

Because some of the members are almost never mentioned anymore.

A few of them instead got the focus and still relevant throughout the story.

At least this novel is not that kind of Harem where the members just "like/idolized" the MC.

They do actually love him and willing to follow him.

If you don't like harem, don't worry, it won't really annoy you later on.

----- Rant / The bad section (IMO) :

This novel has too many plot holes.

There are some plot points that the author introduced that was never explained or even outright ABANDONED.

-Too many fighting!

There are so many fighting chapters in this novel, almost feels like out of 2795 chapters, probably 2000 of them are purely fighting (probably exaggerated but the number at least 1500).

This is the reason why there is not much character development, how are you going to develop characters when MC is always fighting.

It was so bad that the author does not even have time to clearly set up sect's background story and development since there was just too much fighting! (After early novel chapters).

Therefore I never had an attachment or feelings to any of the sects.

-Too repetitive!

The main plot usually comes to:

MC breathe

- Offend someone

- Kill someone

- Other person got angry

- 1 group got angry

- 1 sect got angry

- multiple sects got angry

-1 area got angry

-the whole world got angry

-he kills all enemy

-rinse and repeat

--MC as a victim

Remember when I mentioned his principle? The author always revolves his enemy around that.

For the entirety of the novel, it was because a person/sect has a problem with MC, and it explode until almost everyone in the world is his enemy.

And again and again and again and again.

Painting the MC as the victim since it's always other people that were looking for problems. Now, MC is a vengeful person.

So without spoiling too much, let's just say that he will kill a lot (to the point of being called a butcher).

-- Ending:

I am torn whether to put the summary of it or not.

Ultimately I choose not to put it here.

If I was to summarise my feeling about it in one sentence

Spoiler

Disappointing and anti-climatic

[collapse]

-----------------------------------------

If you actually read the whole review, kudos to you (and thank you).

In conclusion, I would suggest this novel if you like actions and fighting, not so much if you want romance or character development.

Overall, I would rate this 3/5.

Not particularly innovative, Yet not boring either. <<less

Really dumb MC, like ten times more dumber than the most dumbest MC you've ever read.

So, in many cases, he'll want to kill someone if they were to cross the road infront of him.

In another case, he went to destroy an empire but before starting the war, he talked with his gf that he should make the surrender.

... more>> When he appeared in the field, opponent wanted to surrender without bullshit. But he didn't agreed and wanted to remove the grass.

Don't know if author is suffering from short term memory loss or MC.

And after sometime one empire wanted to do coalition with him, he didn't agreed. Then they wanted to surrender he didn't agreed, after that he's saying I'll kill you because you keep going against me. F*ck man. How can you be so dumb.

He's moody, edgy, even most arrogant type of mc's aren't shitty as him.

Don't know why ww chose this novel. <<less

Imagine wasting more than 400 chapters on ”I have to save my mother!!” only to have she is already dead when saved. A truly s*upid choice by the author. The novel could have been without this whole saving bullsh*t that went on and on and on forever. Basically the entire novel was based on the MC saving his mother, and then she’s just dead, like what the actual f*ck? It really tilted me, wasting reading 400 chapters for a tr*sh ending. It would not suprise me if there is another ”save the damsel in distress” because this author is a monkey.

Romance is really, really f*cking bad. Three times, three f*cking times the MC has s*x with a woman because of aphrosidiac. Like fine, I’ve seen this bullsh*t before. Every time MC has been with a girl, instead of strenghtening their bond, the author just introduces another female into his harem. There is so much forced bullsh*t it’s just really bad to read, the romance was written by someone truly incompetent.

Almost everyone stops supporting the MC at one point, so don’t expect him to stay allied with anyone. He builds his own force, but it is extremely basic with nothing impressive about it and since it was supposed to help him save his mother, and that completely failed, what the flying f*ck is the point of even having it? 🙂
IMO, I don’t suggest you read this novel. The author completely wasted 400 chapters for nothing. Romance is bad. Powerups are rushed and not well made, like his sword intent improvements are a joke even when compared to other bad novels.

This novel is the definition of Dragon Proud Sky. (龙傲天)

[collapse]

Us veteran readers usually have had our fill of these type of stories but I guess I can recommend it to novice readers.
It's well written and the pacing is good.
But if you've read 2 or more of these stories you can literally predict what will happen next.
I myself did so as a test before I started reading this and i've made 0 mistakes so far.

Don't read it. I read this whole book for almost two weeks and what did I get?

... more>>
Spoiler
[collapse]

I really read this novel, without skipping any chapters, this is the first time I read a long novel without skipping anything and I am disappointed.

What I liked about this novel before completing it is:

1. TheMC is really ruthless to his enemies from the beginning, although sometimes you may feel it is extreme because he follows his heart but it is good.

2. Sometimes, sword Dao cultivation process is really good.

3. Most of all, this is the most important, little white. It is really the cutest thing in this novel.

Cons:

1. His sister and his daughter are never mentioned throughout the book after sometime. Even in the end, it is vaguely mentioned. No contact, nothing.

2. Alchemy. It is completely forgotten, literally. It was first mentioned that pill masters have a very high status in their universe, but nothing about pills is mentioned at all, nothing, the word 'pill' also doesn't exist.

3. Harem. It was good at first but gradually even his wives were not mentioned at all. Just here and there they are mentioned, because they are too weak. Only An ningjing can follow him until the end and he didn't marry or had s*x with her till the end. Of course, the real wedding happened only with one girl among his harem.

4. The one thing I found ridiculous is, always a powerful person could see what skills MC has just by looking at him, like sword domain etc., but MC never could see what the other party has when he is in their realm. Weird and s*upid plot hole.

5. Heavenly Dao punishments. They are never mentioned again after an arc, I mean I can understand about the eternal (3D) universe why heavenly Dao was not present but what about the one below? It should have existed but not mentioned.

6. Many characters who are mysterious and powerful, I mean real powerful were not mentioned, I mean seriously, the author even admits it. You know why he wrote at the end? Ridiculous, I don't even want to mention it.

7. Incomplete ending, very rushed at the end.

And there are some other things too but it will be very long. Usually I won't be lucky, but my investment of time for two weeks went into the dumper, so I am mad.

For someone who really invests in a novel when he/she reads it, this is not for you. Of course, read it at your own risk. It is a pity that a good novel has been ruined at the end by the author. <<less

Its pretty standard it should be read just for the sake of it not expecting anything above average, its mainly ruined by the overuse of some tropes that this chinese works have that really make it less enjoyable

Some of them and a few other bad points that should tell a lot of people if they should waster their time on it

  • MC is never "worthy" of being saved or helped
  • Aphrodiac r*pe trope
    Spoiler

    One is done him and another girl in aphrodisiac, another is a girl that needs to do it else he dies he doesnt do anything so its reverse rape

    [collapse]
  • Author just forget things he built in the first 120 chapters is worse but later gets a bit better but sometimes happens, for example that MC has X skill, MC can do X, or only someone X strong can pass a test
  • MC never has a time to take a break he is always meeting enemies everywhere which just numb to the tension
Now... I got to chapter 349 and I just have to point another thing that for many would be a good reason to drop its related to... uhh necrophilia

Spoiler

So a woman that is obviously going to be a lover saves MC and pretty much dies if it was not for the vortex (Cheat item from MC) forcefully preserving her soul but her body not even vitality have anymore, so he goes to his master that give him a sexual cultivation technique to share his lifespan with her... yeah, and then author goes in to narrate MC thoughts of how to do its good but he dislike taking advantage of her... so basically MC have to screw a corpse to give her lifespan enough to keep her fully alive until he fully revive her... yeah

[collapse]

If you can avoid this point it can be a nice time killer if you have nothing to do

Hey, giving this a review since no one else has yet.

Due to a slight error, the translator released up to c 130 briefly, so I have a decent idea about some of the going on's in this story.

Firstly, get the big questions out the way: Yes this is a harem, yes the MC gets a mysterious cheat item, yes the MC has a mysterious background. Normal cultivation type story. No big plot twists (yet).

The story isn't anything revolutionary, but it's not bad either. The main character hasn't gotten into murder... more>> hobo territory (yet), can be a bit s*upid at times, and kind of smart at others. They are a sword cultivator (duh, novel name). If I was to liken this story to something, it'd be like Talisman Emperor, but instead of having Chen Xi focus on Talismans, the MC focuses on Sword Cultivation. MC is willing to kill if it comes down to it, but is also prideful. Pretty black and white so far, as in, you're either with me or against me kind of thing when dealing w a lot of people. Not all, but a lot.

The relationship developmental process could definitely use some work, but it's not quite to the extent that every female he comes across wants to jump his bones. As of chapter 130 the relationships in his harem that exist are as follows (warning: spoilers follow, including how they are related, so don't read if you don't want to know) :

Spoiler

Sect Leader's Daughter:

Merc Big Sister Lady:

Current Imperial Empire Princess Lady:

Previous Empire 9 tailed fox princess:

[collapse]

If you skipped that: we are at 4 ladies so far.

Same translator that did Talisman Emperor, and its on Wuxia World, so no complaints about TL quality. Just beware the occasional Chen Xi transmigrating into the story (haha).

Not a bad read to pass the time/if this is your genre. Ignore thos initial reviews, people tend to spam bad reviews on new novels for some reason. <<less

this was fairly middle of the road for me until c37 where there is aphrodisiac-induced rape. Not only that, but another comment says the exact same thing happens no less than 3 times. I thought the story was mindless and cliche entertainment, even if it wasn't great, but r*pe is a big NO for me (I don't care if "it's just a story"). I would have given it a 3 up until then but now it's a 1.

Edit: I have lost a bit of interest at some point, after reading many chapters into this novel past chapter 78. This is a difficult novel to recommend. The writer is using lots of cliches and at the same time trying to break the norm of chinese writing by making almost everyone his enemy, almost everyone.

-I can not really recommend this for normal readers. By normal readers, those who do not mind re-used troupes and cliches with face slapping and plot armor.
==================

I have only read to translated chapter 78.... more>> I have not read chinese version or the machine translated version. I have tested reading machine translation before for another novel and it made my brain bleed, since then I never touched those texts again. I do not recommend. It will affect your grammar and understanding context.

Story: 3/5. Story is he against the world, hated by everyone but entertaining. Not everything is explained yet. World building is difficult to imagine how it looks.

Characters: 3/5. A bit annoying character but up to chapter 78 he is in his teens. How he progress from here needs to be seen. Hopefully writer will improve the character.

Translation: 3/5. Weird grammar structured sentences sometimes, missing words, wrong words, weird past tense mixed with present tense. Weird placement of quotation/dialog marks "". Weird choice of he/she/him/her - Vocabulary is limited. Unnecessary prepositions. <<less
