This is a short prequel to Everlasting Immortal firmament and gives context to how Gu Hai became the richest person in the six kingdoms. It should not be regarded as anything else then a short prequel to give context. It is rushed, has an abrupt ending and forgets side characters. But If you're planning to read EIF, I would suggest you read this because it explains a lot of what happens in beginning of EIF.

While it's refreshing that it's a xianxia not focused at all on cultivation (which is the only reason I'd rate it 4, tho story is closer to 3 imo) and MC is middle aged, it kind of fell into a similar cycle.

Problem pops up > comes up with a solution > gets naysayers > proves himself > naysayers do a 180 and praise him > he acts humble and says something akin to "nah~ it was all you guys" > repeat

Starts out great until you notice the characters are very... more>> shallow and quickly abandoned. Also really reminded me of I'm Really a Superstar in that commonly known things here are considered new and mind bongling there. Like gambling, lotto, and guerilla warfare. <<less

Great story, kind of a a prequel to Everlasting Immortal Firmament. So if you liked the story, I suggest you take a look at Everlasting Immortal Firmament.

In this novel we follow the life of a great merchant/strategist in his thirties transcending into a Xianxia world. Being a man of experience he knows how to act in front of great characters, as he once was one of the greatest merchant in his previous world. His goal since coming to this unknown world is to become an immortal.

This novel, although short, is... more>> a great introduction to its sequel Everlasting Immortal Firmament. <<less

Great prequel for Everlasting Immortal Firmament. (Not actually sure why this is separate from it since it's a continuation and this is so short.)

The first portion highlights his skill as a merchant, the second highlights his stragetic ability, both in boardgames and in warfare.

The latter portion of the warfare segment and the following chapters come off as extremely condensed, this is probably my only complaint of this story. I don't know when this was made in relation to EIF, so this might have preceeded it or it might have... more>> been made later to fill in some blanks.

I highly recommend this and EIF (even though only 24 chapters of EIF are translated as of this review).

EDIT: I forgot to mention an important point! This story has practically nothing to do with Xianxia whatsoever! That aspect doesn't come into play until around chapter 20 of EIF (the sequel) ! <<less

Wayyy too fast paced at the end, it felt so rushed.

The romance tag is such a lie, only a subplot at most if you really want to push it.

Frankly disappointed, it was such a nice pace at the beginning..

A lot of things unanswered, but it supposedly a prequel so maybe..

The novel is quite short, but it was interesting to read. The only thing I could say as negative is that the last few chapters felt really rushed. Also a few things mentioned within the story seems to have been forgotten at the end.

This was a refreshing read. I've never encountered a character so loved by its writer. I enjoyed reading this but it didn't really make my heart race. It's simple to say the least and the main focus of the story (which was the main character's journey) did not stray or had any true hardship which was a bit off for me. The pace and development was good despite that. This is good as material for passing time in between reading longer stories or when you need to just lay back.... more>> I'd probably read sequel just to see if the same format would apply to that story's main charcater as well.",) <<less

Short, simple, but jumpy. Multiple details skipped over. Timeskip instantly in one sentence. As others have mentioned, this is a prequel to Everlasting Immortal Firmament, meaning this whole novel details the story before EIF.
