City of Sin

Description

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

Every drop of this family bloodline is stained with sin. They are the embodiment of contradiction; calm yet maniacal, with great memories yet often forgetful. They pledge themselves to their dreams yet often compromise, are angels that are also devils… It’s why I hate them. And also love them.

The only hope of his family, a youth with the blood of elves and devils walks on a battleground of annihilation and rebirth. He wills his way through boiling lava and icy depths, killing on this field of despair to strike down the lofty figure in his sight. One day he’ll grasp his blade tightly and survey his surroundings, only to find no more enemies to kill.

Where to start? Man what a tragic novel. I usually refrain from writing reviews before completely "digesting" the novel but this one is just extremely tragic.

... more>>
Spoiler

All the women have tragic endings or some tragedy attached. I kind of feel the author doesn't even like women but at the same time it is one of the few novel where the girls have personality.

[collapse]

The translation is one of the best with very few, almost negligible mistakes.

The story is very well written. Sometimes the pace of story can be frustating but not that much. The characters are well thought out and have clear goals and act like real people.

But a word of advise it is not for the people with feeble hearts.

Spoiler

Too many girls of harem has bad endings. Especially the most interesting and fun or lovable if you will. Flowsand. That whole thing after she sacrifices herself suck majorily and she never comes back. Prompting me to drop the series.

[collapse]

One last word, I'm never reading anything with tragedy tag in it. Major bummer. <<less

The first volume is 5 star content right there, if I were to read only book one (the first 117 chapters) I would rate this novel five stars, no doubt about it.

The problem is the second book, that has double the chapters and is all filler with almost zero character development and completely zero plot development it was like the author said f**k it I am out of here let the interns write the rest.

I am confused why the translator even bothered translating it, nothing really happened just some inconsequential... more>> power ups, he could just summarize the whole book in a paragraph and move on with book 3 there is no plot development what so ever.

All in all this is a 5 star novel when there is actually a plot and a zero star trash at other times there is no middle ground. <<less

Regretfully, this would've been a good novel to read. It started out with a fantasy theme then later added with sci-fi then rubbish. The ending was very disappointing. The writer started pretty good where it looks like real literature compared to other chinese novels of trash this trash that and being bully. Efforts were put in where you can feel the morality of the MC fighting in his mind.

Of course the only good point here is that there are no GRANDPA's in this story. THANK GOODNESS!!! Another thing, the... more>> title is like so irrelevant.

This novel have too many flaws, discrepancy, inconsistency, and disappointments. Even a kindergartner can do better math than the writer.

The writer introduces various plots, conspiracies, and such but never follow through. This can be like a mini version of Games of Thrones. Some content came from mmorpg such as WOW, Diablo, and others. Even greek mythology was pulled into this story. Interesting enough, even Star Trek: The Next Generation was included (Assimilate!). Ah.... it was a good idea at first but the writer still failed by reverting to the 17k. com theme of gibberish. I cannot believe a chapter can get so many paragraphs of the same thing in various modifications (such as **** 3 years***** or 3 years ****** or ******* 3 yrs etc...). That was like after the 1st 1/2 of the story. The writer wasted so many chapters on gibberish whereas it could've been used to expanding out contents of the story to make it more attractive.

Lastly (almost but have to be so), the writer cheated very so often just by pointing out something but not even giving any good explanation or detail. Everything were so vague to the point of foggy and blurring your imaginations. Good thing this only ended up about a 1000+ chapters, if not I would've ended it 1/2 about the 500 or so mark.

Only 2 stars worth. 1 for not being so totally knock-off product with a bit of creativity. The other for being to pull me to finish the novel. Although it was a bit disappointing from the 1/2 way point to the end and especially the end. The end was like a rush to finish but not so rough.

One last final thought-the writer is a pure pervert. No romance one bit and plenty of rape and molesting. So lock your doors and keep your daughters away. Maybe son too cause there were some gray areas as well. <<less

Hey all together! This is my first review of a novel although I've been reading these kinds of novels for 5 years already. The reason I've decided to make a review, because I've just finished reading the raws and rate it as one of the best novels which have been read by me!

I won't spoiler any content cause you have to experience yourself!

Yes it is kinda slow progressing story, but in my eyes it never got borring. The worldbuilding, and the "out of the box thinking" of the author with... more>> his characterdeveloping is reeeeaally refreshening!

Yes the end gets a bit sci-fi and I'm really not a fan of sci-fi crossover stuff. And before I got to the point in the story I read a review here, which mentioned sci-fi at the end of the story. This made me sceptical if the story would get destroyed.

My conclusion, for not being a sci-fi fan it's a very good ending, and doesn't destroy anything and it's fitting well with the story progress I think. So guys don't get scared of it and read it all to the end! ;) Best regards,

Phoenix <<less

So far its looking good with an unusual plot you don't see. Liking the main character and the fascinating world cant make heads or tails of it yet but hoping it will be a good read once more chapters are out.

This story is incredible so far, by far one of the best stories on this site. Well written, interesting, memorable characters, with a very good translation.

I have no idea wtf all the other people are smoking, giving this less than 4 stars is unfathomable.

Ze Tian Jie-like explanation in everything you have in this novel. Unfortunately, it's too much and made this novel unlikeable (at least for me).

The story and character? More like Ancient Godly Monarch, either you like it or you despise it.

The interaction in this novel? Reminds me of God and Devil World.

I don't know why Wuxiaworld took this novel after finished with Warlock of the Magus World. Maybe it would be interesting in the future. For now it's 1.5/5 for me

Pretty interesting concept... Kinda reminds me of Warlock of the magus world with level categorized wizards and the gods system etc... The MC is a mystery it's still translated till chapter 8 (WW) so we can't be sure about his bloodline powers and such so yeah till now the story progresses smoothly kinda mysterious but it's still decent in my opinion I'm addicted XD

This one is really addictive, engaging and well written.

It's well translated and edited.

Has a compeling story with more than a plot happening at the same time, keeping it refreshing.

The progress of the MC is well done and although the MC gets more powerful, his true power comes from the followers/war party that he manages to get for himself. In this, this novel is diferent from most others, as you get to really know some of the secondary characters and they are really well made. The MC gets more and more... more>> powerful, but by himself he can't do much and that brings the war party importance to the novel, something that rarely happens in other novels. The novel is filled with war though, so be prepared for the loss of some followers that you might care about. It stings.

Other characters like his teacher/family head get their own time and you can see that they have their own problems even though they're not around the MC all the time.

The harem part is still mostly non existing. He chose a wife of convenience really early but she doesn't matter at all and doesn't acompany him and will probably get discarded in the future. The girls he's into are quite formidable and hard to get so it will take a while. Right now, only one girl keeps him company (as in bed) and she's a real asset to his forces, not just an eye candy.

As for the future, it seems really promising, with planar wars and family disputes all over the place.

Can't wait for more and I wish several chapters would be translated a day.

Cheers <<less

This story has been a disjointed mess so far. Most of that impression stems from the author seemingly being unsure how to properly introduce his world and the characters, so he both rushes from one plot point to the next, while also introducing concepts (magic, runes, etc.) without ever going into any depth how they work or how our MC deals with them. It's quite annoying.

Forgotten Realms meets the Broken Empire trilogy - with added spice of unique Chinese narrative.

This story isn't for everyone. Why do I say that? The pace at the beginning is extremely slow, Richard's tenure in Deepblue (the 'magical academy' the protagonist studies in) exists for sake of characterisation, and for world-building. That's over a hundred chapters, containing over 5, 000 words (note, words, not characters) each chapter just to establish the footings of the study. During this period of time whilst every paragraph was rich in lore, progression, and... more>> minutiae, at some point in time (around chapter 50) I Just couldn't help but gloss over the largely - seemingly - irrelevant chapters. It turned out the chapters weren't irrelevant after all, since every chapter had an impact on how Richard developed, of his relationship with the people around him. At the beginning, Richard is completely, utterly dull. A naive academic whom views the world with rose-tinted glasses.

Spoiler

And then, cues become increasingly prevalent, verifying that the story is simply at its nascent stages. That... it has so much more to offer. Don't give up before chapter 120, if you do, you're going to miss out on one entrancing journey of blood, despair, tragedy, conquest, and power.

[collapse]

It was when Richard first met with Flowsand, and 'obtained' the companionship of Waterflower that the story truly shines. BEWARE, FOR CHARACTERS IN THIS STORY CAN THINK FOR THEMSELVES, AND AREN'T ACCESSORIES OF THE PROTAGONIST. Planar conquest incoming! With a band of amateurs, disunited, and completely distrusting of one another, Richard begins his quest of conquering what is, an entire world. He quickly losses his previous image of 'naive academic', and instead becomes a conqueror, with awe-inspiring strategic skill. He is a mage yes, but what makes Richard shine is his ability to craft runes, miniature formations that can grant permanent buffs.

There's a quote from a bard in this story; 'Behind every cruel boss, there's even crueller women'. I found it incredibly accurate, for as the story goes on, Richard is willing to crucify, vilify souls, all the more willing to engage in slavery, and be so frugal as to reuse runes by cutting them off the skins of his enemy!

Spoiler

Let it be said that this story is extremely realistic, there's no flowery hiding over reality, or truth. Richard isn't a transmigrant, he's simply a citizen of Norland. Thus he thinks like a Norlander, not a Terran. This means he has different values, and norms. Please remember that.

This is the best Chinese web novel I've ever read.

The dialogue in this novel is very intoxicating. The author's writing skills are very good. If you understand Chinese, I highly recommend reading the original.

"When we embark on another plane of land, we do not see life but only numbers and resources."

Spoiler

Throughout the book, the (plane to plane) war is an article throughout, and Richard has killed the final invincible position in blood and fire in the plane war. The fate of the people around him is also twisted and twisted due to the plane war. This is a very Good ideas. In addition, the emotions of each character in the novel are the highlights of "City of sin". They make their own choices based on emotions, whether this choice is good or bad, and because of this It shaped the images of Flowsand, Lina, Philip and Ferlyn, MountainSea, and the Broodmother, especially Flowsand, and I believe that all friends who read "City of sin" will remember her. In short, emotions occupy a very important position in this book.

Well, it's my first time writing a review and since I'm from Brazil and my English is not so good there can be mistakes. The novel begins in an incredible way, well-built world, deep characters (even the secondary characters), but then the story suddenly turns into garbage, the MC is not in control of anything, I even doubt that he have authentic feelings after what passed with the first girl that he liked (including after what happens with her the real face of the novel shows). Good points of the... more>> novel: It shows the dark side of people well when they have power over the lives of others. The world is very well built and the history in excellent. Weaknesses: an MC that I can not seem to like, does not show the good side of humanity at any moment (we know the world well and we know that although rare goodness still exists) and worst of all, women with miserable lives + women with even more miserable lives + women with such miserable lives that it scares. The conclusion is that the author has prolemas with women: OMG, IT IS VERY SADISM AND HATE AGAINST WOMEN IN A SINGLE NOVEL. <<less

More like a fantasy story set in a darker setting with a slower more descriptive pacing. The story doesnt have the usual xianxia style of tropes and the world building is pretty good, unweiling as the story progress The MC feel more complex losing his naivity as the story progress and becoming a dark antihero that doesnt pull back from torturing people if he feels it neccesary. Some funny acting side characters act more like comic relief sometimes to break away from the darker setting.

The first chapters were a bit... more>> confusing... <<less

A bit of a mess so far, the story has not stabilized as of yet so some people might find trouble understanding what is going on exactly. However, the world building is one of the most interesting and unique I have come across in anything I have read. The mess is not even purely a bad thing, but makes the novel a very interesting read. The novel will probably become more understandable in the future when more chapters are translated. To be honest I really hope it doesn't become any... more>> more messy though, since I will have to stop reading if I understand it even less. <<less

I really like the writing style and the story appears to be going in a good direction. The world building is great as well. I'll keep my rating at 5 stars for right now and update as the story progresses, but at this point I highly recommend it.

My first impression in this novel is it's very very very confusing, the prologue drop my interest reading this novel, I thought that it would improve but instead it became worse. To many question left hanging about this and that. I don't about others but this novel is not for me. To much this and that I don't know where to start. It's like solving a mystery without knowing where to start.

The MC (although I am not sure if that was the MC) is like a puppet or a doll... more>> who was drag with this and that. At first I think their was an attempt to make a character out of the MC but I seriously fail to notice as I can only see a doll like MC who was describe as this and that but at the end of the day all his action can't be justified as his own. IT was like MC is doing this because this is what they want to do. The characters are very transparent I was like who this again? it's much worse that putting a tag with who's a boy and who's the girl.

Spoiler

MC meet his father side family all I know is the number if his brother and sister and not even I name was mention (or did I miss reading about it?) his father was like boom exaggerated character that introduce with a blast but slowly fade away. MC's mother was very transparent to the point that I ask my self, oh she died...

[collapse]

I love reading simple things and what I hate reading is complicated things with complicated stuff with an annoying and unnecessary mysterious mix in it. and other words I feel like flipping a table and shout out loud "To hell with this novel".

The author might think that the novel might be good to start with a blast, he was right the first thing I had in mind when I read the first chapter, I won't last reading this <<less

This is a good novel. I enjoyed reading it very much.

the only drawback is -->

Spoiler

The MC takes only about 10 years to transform from the weakest existence to strongest one. Which is a common problem with 99% of Chinese novels.

Note: I read lots if Chinese novels. This is the only one I could finish without dropping it in the middle.

This is a story about magical world. In it you will find information on the world, like cultures, cities, religions, magic, swordsmanship, and a lot more. This information can be from extreme describes of places to large amounts of magical theories of magic. Unfortunately author keeps bringing up someone named Richard. And he shows up a lot to get into the way of this atlas.

On more serious note. Story isn't half bad just over shadowed massively by world building and character descriptions. If you're like me and tolerate the massive... more>> info dumps of world and character "building" (where takes large paragraphs to describe any and every character or majority of chapter it is describing places or other semi relevant things). You will find yourself skipping majority of chapters and only skimming this story. Sadly it can get to point that anything that isn't directly related to plot starts to become irrelevant. Things that normally would seem relevant become irrelevant in this story and get skipped for more basic story but considering story is fairly good guess its worth it. Though story isn't that outstanding. <<less
