Ancient Godly Monarch

Description

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

In the Province of the Nine Skies, far above the heavens, there exists Nine Galaxies of Astral Rivers made up of countless constellations interwoven together.

For Martial Cultivators, they could form an innate link with one of the constellations, awaken their Astral Soul, and transform into a Stellar Martial Cultivator.

Legend has it that, the strongest cultivators in the Province of the Nine Skies, were beings that could open an astral gate every time they advanced into a new realm. Their talent in cultivation was such that they could even establish innate links with constellations that existed in a layer higher than the Nine Layers of Heavens, eventually transforming into the heaven-defying and earth-shattering power known as the War God of the Nine Heavens.

Qin Wentian is the MC of this story. How could a guy, with a broken set of meridians, successfully cultivate? There were countless Stellar Martial Cultivators, as there were countless constellations in the vast starry skies. What he wanted to be, was the brightest constellation of all, shining dazzlingly in the vast starry skies.

Review as of Chapter 158:

Definitely good so far, but certainly not great.

There are too many assholes in this story. IMO the "world full of assholes" trope is only really enjoyable when the MC gets his revenge on them in a satisfying and timely way, but here the MC repeatedly endures and endures and endures, with more and more randoms heaping on the assholery. And even when he gets his revenge, he finds out that he hasn't fixed the problem because another asshole (who's out of his league) was pulling the... more>> strings and is now really pissed off. It's... stifling.

Combined with the fact that he cultivates fairly slowly, with regular breaks for small events, it feels like he's trapped in this mire of danger and that the plot's events are moving along at a crawl. It could be because I've been reading a lot of fast paced xuanhuan lately but the end result is that the struggle vs payoff ratio in this story is a little unsatisfying. I prefer series where the MC's hard work pays off and he stomps his enemies fairly quickly (except the major enemies, who obviously need a bigger build-up) so the "wait" to balance the scales isn't drawn out.

But if you disregard all that you've got a decent xuanhuan that's interesting enough to hold your attention. <<less

This story does not make one lick of sense. There are much better novels out there - read those first.

The first arc (200ish chapters, Country of Chu) is about MC, still weak, betrayed on all sides, no backing whatsoever - yet he walks straight into the lions den (city of his royal enemy), joins a sect where he's not really wanted either, and the only reason he survives is... because he's the main character. And of course that sect ends up handing him a super big secret legacy they... more>> guarded for thousands of years. Because that's the kind of thing a super power emperor would hide in the sticks and a sect would just hand over to the first random outsider.

The second arc (another 200ish chapters) is a bit more interesting but only if you're able to ignore everything that happened up to here. My hope is that the story will get a little better as it progresses - after all, Coiling Dragon also started off a bit on the weak side (that mother plot that was basically dropped only to be picked up again at the very end of the novel). The writing itself, is also not very good. MC is fighting and then he pulls a weapon out of his arse we never heard of before and author is like, oh he made that weeks ago I just never told you about it. And his sidekick puppy kind of just appeared out of nowhere too, never explained. That aside the same weaknesses you find in most webnovels: MC has so many abilities he conveniently forgets half of them most of the time. Wherever he goes, MC always arrives just in time for just the thing. No matter how overpowered, how many times MC proves his abilities, for some reason others keep seeing him as not qualified, underestimate him, just to be killed/burned by his prowess. There's a tournament and he obviously wins first place and it's a big surprise for everyone. Maybe I read too many chinese webnovels, but this one is particularly boring. <<less

What I enjoy from this story compared to others is that everything seems more fleshed out. I like the main character and his friends. They aren't throw away characters either they help out a bit and are more or less not as useless as the other friends that any other MC has. The love interest isn't bad either sure shes a bit immature in some aspects but she is loyal and so far throughout the novel even though she isnt with the MC all the time her presence isnt forgotten... more>> or missed and still plays an important roll to the MC.
all in all I find this alot better then the mass murdering generic MC Who is a loner and doesnt care about anyone <<less

I've changed my opinion on this one. At first I thought it was stale, and was having trouble keeping with it. The first 200 chapters weren't satisfying, and had a lot of jarring shifts in the action. It felt like watching a guy lose control of a horse and be pulled behind it by his shoelaces for 2 miles.

However it got better. It's still a chinese novel (it takes 40 chapters to do things that could've been done in 1), but it's satisfying and the characters... are alright. Most of... more>> them are pretty shallow.

It'd have a 3.5 out of 10 if it weren't a qidian premium book. It's not worth the $100 you'd need to fork out to read it. If you can find other places to read it, it'd be worth a read. Otherwise, don't even start reading it. <<less

Have you read PMG translation till the current chapters? If the answer is yes then you are up to speed with this novel too because the story is nearly the same with some changes. Here's a list with changes and similarities from top of my head:

1. Can't cultivate. The change being in this novel people think he can't but he can via another method
2. Missing parent/s. The change being in PMG mother is missing vs both parents in this novel
3. Ousted and chased from his position. The change... more>> being in PMG only he and his father take the brunt vs the whole family in this novel
4. There is an academy backed by Royal Prince in the capital city. This is same in both novels. The only "twist" is he doesn't join the royal backed academy here
5. Rich people mocking him when trying to join the academy
6. Many of the same conversations refuting the nemesis. ex, you dint intervene when he tried to kill me, why you intervening when I am trying to kill him etc etc
7. Royal Prince the "genius" and "dragon among men". Only the sequence of royal prince has changed
8. Royal Prince being overbearing and plotting for the throne
9. Same world building where country is managed by some sect and then that sect is part of some bigger region which is managed by bigger sect and so and so forth

and more....

The only reason it is 3 because it tries to cram more story in lesser amount of chapters. <<less

The same word of "Monarch" like Otherworldly Evil Monarch", but its actually about another cancelation of engagement and revenge things. The story is similar to Against the God, but the comedy and quality is two level below. I hate the name of Bai Qingsong or spelled "Bai Cing Cong", even the MC name "Qin Wentian" doesn't give a ring. So I give a verdict of 4 stars. Will read further when there is a lot more chapters.

It’s actually 3.5 rounded to 4. Review up until chapter 20.

The cultivation route is really awesome. I like the fact that they can gain another ability when they sensed the power of the stars. BUT the annoying part is, too much oppression in this novel. There’s like no breather. The MC is either belittled, abused, or even cheated. And the worst part is it’s a simultaneous oppression from multiple sides. It’s a bit annoying and not really realistic that you can still survive from tons of oppression. But anyways, it’s... more>> still a good read when you are bored. PS the translations is awesome. And their rate of release is fast. <<less

READ THIS!

Another PMG or should I say better version of PMG (PEERLESS MARTIAL GOD (same author) LITERALLY. READ AGM at your own RISK.

Majority of the current plot of the current translated chapters (ch.1-34) was just like a beautified revised version of PMG,

Example so far.

... more>>
Spoiler

•Dubious MC background,

•MC personality (although much kinder so far).

•Conflict of the AGM’s MC toward his fiancees clan for me was like another version of the PMG’s MC conflict toward his Lin clan’s Lin Qing Faction,

•The AGM’s clan annihilation was also just another version of PMG’s Yun Hai sect annihilation.

•Self Imposed righteousness (like Lin feng’s personality

[collapse]

Only difference that I noticed was the cultivation form, world currently being build, the characters and revision twist plots. New Terms.

other than all of that, its literally PMG.

(You’ll probably feel like De Ja Vu, unfortunately its not the good kind of one)

*sigh*

Im pretty much expecting Bloodbath.

[to be edited if things change after a 100 chapter or so..]

Recommended for a reader who havent read PMG, or maybe some guy who wants to read for past time.

[3/5 – if you have read PMG]

[4.3/5 – if you havent read PMG] <<less

The concept is unique and the quality of the translation is good as well. The MC is a likable fellow who seems to be already set on the harem course. A classic journey to OPness Xianxia.

Not so much going on. But a year has passed and I could still remember some parts of this novel.

Even though I stopped at around 400, this does not mean I do not like the novel. It just that I do not like the power up system of this novel

But besides that. This is a very memorable read. I will continue to read this one in the future. Maybe after I got past the way people level up here. Too profound for me, I guess, too heavenly is what I... more>> think.

And also. MC gets to become famous fast. I do not like MC that can become famous easily with simple deeds. <<less

Not crazy good but definitely not bad either. What baffles me is the one star reviews with little to no reason other then they disagreed with the people who gave it a five star review. Even though they themselves have only read 40 or so chapters. Like everyone else says there's a strong start and it almost immediately heads into generic mode after that. That said the characters are well fleshed out nothing feels very forced and the world building is also a plus with a cool cultivation mechanic. If... more>> you looking to add a novel to you already long as hell list I definitely recommend this. <<less

Its pretty nice

At chapter 83, the pressure is still piling up, more knots are tied to the rope, and it tightens even further. No rest for the MC, though the only hope lies within himself, that he isn't aware of.

Its quite good. I would suggest that you wait till 100 chapters, then binge read it. Its really great. (Up to the chapter at review)

The method of cultivation may be unique, but everything else is cliche. He chooses the method most focused on brute force, he shows up the fiance that wants to annul the engagement while having kept his cultivation a secret from even his family. Same old stuff. He even uses that hilariously stupid line "don't blame me for being ruthless" at one point.

Not enough chapters for me to give a proper review, but this is absolutely amazing. Great start, unique cultivation technique, MC with good personality, and the stereotypical loving father (foster father).

EDIT: I'm hoping that this doesn't turn out like pmg, but with the recently updated chapters... I'm worried. (Ch. 30)

Tenor
As of Ch. 4

It's too soon for me to judge the novel as a whole, but I really like the concept of connecting with constellations and drawing Qi from them. The quality of the translations is superb and I'm looking forward to future chapters.
