Eternal Martial Sovereign


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

Xiao Yun, a young genius who awakened a Martial Spirit, was labelled a mediocrity after his cultivation stopped advancing. However, no one knew that his Martial Spirit was the Life Martial Spirit, one of the 10 Great Martial Spirits of the ancient times.

After being upgraded, the Life Martial Spirit is able to absorb all Heaven and Earth Essence Qi, as well as heal injuries and neutralise extreme poisons. With the Heaven-Devouring Divine Art left behind by his father, Xiao Yun integrates many more Martial Spirits for himself to use.

A hopeless youth defies fate and washes away his humiliation, walking towards the boundless world with his Life Martial Spirit to become an eternal martial sovereign, dominating the Nine Heavens and Ten Earths!

Translator’s Note: I know that this novel sounds quite generic, but it’s quite highly rated in Chinese. The beginning is a bit slow, but it gets better after Chapter 50 and much better after around Chapter 150-200 🙂

I read this story up to chapter 82 before I couldn't endure it anymore.

How this story's rating is so high has me stumped.

The first few chapters were incredibly cliche and repetitive.

... more>> MC is regarded as trash then suddenly out of good fortune, he gets an OP martial spirit, then the story gets annoying.

Somebody picks a fight with MC, he kicks their butt, the surrounding people are shocked and wonder if his talent has returned.

Now imagine doing this three or four times more before the Author realises he needed to shake things up, to keep people interested.

Poison comes along and suddenly everybody around the MC is poisoned and he is the only cure.

Suddenly every female he comes across eventually wants to sleep with him, even if they use Poison to do it.

The MC, doesn't do anything, instead he stays in the room and talks to them, sympathising with them.

We all know how that will end, and its made worse because he has a girlfriend.

So, let me guess, the Girlfriend will eventually find out about the other women and be okay with it?

Where did the 'Wise beyond his years' MC, go?

Then to top it off, I recognize a lot of the story from other light novels.

The poor levels of originality is shocking. <<less

I'm only at around ch. 100 now. So far everything is pretty basic. The dialogue is basic. The plot is basic and extremely repetitive. At the beginning of the story 2 girls (one being his own sister) are sick and 'poisoned' and need MC to treat them. Then MC left his town and met a group whose young lady is poisoned. Then he goes to the city where the young lady's family lives and the whole family is poisoned. After he treated them all, he left to another city and... more>> guess what? yes, another young lady is poisoned. Few chapters after MC cured her, another 'poisoned young miss' appear. Like wtf????? barely 100 chapters and so many sick and poisoned young ladies...... srsly <<less

I don't know what is GT's story with mediocre novels..

Most of its novels are about pre teens fighting for the same reason 'a hidden genius but mistaken for a trash' so the other kids have to ridicule him and then he takes his 'revenge'..

No originality nor creativity whatsoever, Plain flat novels with the same mediocre progress.

Another crappy one. Top reasons not to read this novel:

  1. The martial spirits aren't explained clearly, unlike in other novels such as "Invincible".
  2. Harem formed within the first 45 chapters.
  3. Like many novels that Gravity has picked up lately, it has some rape elements. Girl given aphrodisiac, boy also receives it, they have s*x, girl tries to kill boy but becomes first harem member.
  4. Author simultaneously describes the MC as being "mature" and "wise beyond his years", but then has him act like a horny 16 year old.
  5. Really sick of MC's that are miraculously skilled in every aspect (e.g. Strong martial spirit, fast cultivating speed, very intelligent, and suddenly a genius at pill making on his first try?)

ETA: When I wrote this review, I read up to c19. Because I like to be thorough, and it's a given fact that many wuxia novels don't really "start" until about 50 chapters in, I wanted to keep reading to see if anything would change. In a way, it has. I wrote this review under the impression of "messy, poorly paced, overloaded with tropes, but if you don't care perhaps you'll still find value in it."

I have now read 39 chapters of this dreadful, dreadful novel. I can say hands... more>> down it was not worth giving a chance. What an absolute head ache. The MC does not act out of character, because there's no character to him. He's a bunch of ideas about what makes a cool MC with no real consistent core tying them together. There's no bad plot because there's no plot at all, just a string of tropey situations loosely following one after another with no real sense of interconnection. There's no story here, just pure power fantasy. As others have said, an eye rollingly handled rape plot with magic boner medicine, fortuitous encounters one after another, not one but TWO annoying spirit sidekicks...

The only value in this novel is a dissection of how not to write a story, which is being generous in even calling it a story. My greatest disappointment is I can't rate it 0 stars.

Previous review below:

As my friend would say - "messy."

There's nothing wrong with wish fulfillment - most wuxia is nothing more than that, some are just written with more finesse than others. But the writing in EMS is stilted and awkward. The dialogue, as Vex said, feels like it's constructed by a five year old. The protagonist is a black hole of charisma.

I've read worse novels, but usually it takes me, oh, 200 or so chapters to really feel the story drag at me to a point where I'm rolling my eyes. I've read more formulaic ones too. I've read more blatant wish fulfillment ones. But something about EMS is special. After only nineteen chapters, I'm tiredly rubbing my face and rolling my eyes. Maybe it's that less than 20 chapters had to pass before we got THREE separate harem flags, one of whom is his (non-blood related) sister, and all of them I want to hear about as much as a case of herpes. I could tell you details about their respective breasts and asses, but I couldn't give you a concrete description of their personalities (pouty and flirty doesn't count, I mean who they exist as outside of their interactions with the MC). I can't even remember their names - or the MCs name, at that. Maybe its the rush the author was in, tripping over their own feet, to hit at least five or so of the usual plot points before ten chapters of the story. Maybe it's the way it took all that boring, bland, formulaic, wish fulfillment and condensed it into the first two dozen chapters. I think that's my main issue, in fact. I don't mind formulaic wish fulfillment novels with bland, one-dimensional characters and a slowly materialising harem. I actually don't. But they usually wash over me, very slowly, over a course of hundreds of chapters, in little bite sized chunks of mediocrity that I could digest.

EMS was an immediate overload of all these things.

I mean, to take a more positive approach, because I don't want to be wholly negative, at the very least this novel makes no pretense about what it intends to be. Absolutely none. Its immediate delivery of all these repeated tropes is very straightforward and it doesn't dawdle around and trick you into thinking it's something more (boy have I regretted recommending novels I thought were pretty great and then three hundred chapters in I just... sigh...) and you will be able to decide very early on whether this is the novel for you. That's refreshing. Props for that?

This is not the novel for me. Maybe it's the novel for you. But it's definitely not the novel for me.


Hold on, let me give a stellar example of the writing. From chapter 20:

"You... just who are you?" The two men's faces were full of horror as they retreated. [...]

"Who I am isn't important. What's important is that there are no grievances between us, and yet you all wanted to kill me. It's evident what sort of people you are. Today I, Xiao Yun, am going to exterminate an evil for the public and erase you all from this earth."

Son! Don't drop a line like "Who I am isn't important" and then proceed to introduce yourself by name! It's an absurd piece of writing. It's like it was just written sentence by sentence with no real thought about what preceded or succeeded it, just based on what sounded cooler.

This novel is just terrible after reading the raws it made clear that pretty much everybody there act like a beast with no regard for any decency or gratitue.

Even in a world where the fist rules when a doctor visits your house to heal your daughther you don't treat him like garbage and when your family enemy show up at your door you don't just hand over your realtives for them to kill just because they want.

The worst part is how this could be a good novel but if everybody... more>> acts like a irracional moron and thinks healing skills are useless in a world people get kill and criple over nothing you can't take this serious. <<less

I loved what I read so far and wanted to scream when I got to the teaser. This book would incite a reading marathon if it was complete. The concept of "martial spirits" is not original; however, the "martial spirit" this author created is very original and has so many possibilities. I found the personality of the protagonist to be solid and calm. I can't wait until the next update. It is really hard to give a more detailed review after only 41 chapters. I just hated seeing bad reviews... more>> when I found the book to be highly entertaining and I do not wish for it to be dropped. <<less

I'm a weak man, and these stories are the best for me. I've got dozens of ones just like this bookmarked, and I'm always glaring down the clock waiting for the next release. I want more, so I shall shamelessly slam down a hashtag. #IStandWithGravity. Woo! (^V^) /

(PS - I wanted to hit 5 stars but NU got evil and hid it from me (T-T)

So where should I began?

It's cliche. It's full of already tried and tested tropes. The author is probably scared from trying something new. The whole story, whether you talk about the spirits or dialogues or plotlines, they are basically copy paste from other stories. Even the clan names are the old Xiaos and Fangs.

The story starts with our MC with a waste spirit. His cultivation stick he's the embarrassment of the whole clan. You have your usual set of bullies. The evil uncle. The branch genius who hates MCs guy.... more>> What's left?

Yeah the sick adopted sister, suffering from some sort of cold disease. The moment I read this, three things came into my mind :

1 Pure Yin Body

2 A teacher who will swoop down from nowhere and adopt her.

3 The sick sister stupid trope copied

We also have the mystery father and mother. Genius parents with strong enemies, who manage to give their child to their parents.. Missing in Action. MC decides to save them and blah blah nonsense.

So we still don't have many chapters to review on, but so far it's the same. I can probably give you the basic idea of how the story's gonna go just from reading the beginning. The only difference is MC has already started flirting with girl from other family.

The characters are with few screw loose. All strength and no brains. Enemies popping out of nowhere just for the sake of showing how great our MC is. Dialogues are like 5 years old writing them.

A :"Am gonna kill you cuz I am great and you are weak! Maybe knowtow b4 father an do will give you a clean death".

MC: " You don't qualify cuz u r weak!"

A :" You brat, this is super duper mind blowing heaven shaking punch!"

That's the gist of it...a bit better at least until now.

Soooo not recommending Cuz its like few xianxias thrown into a blender and the result is this novel. <<less

Not the worst, not the best. Because I like Xianxia's my personal enjoyment bumps it up to 4 stars.

It doesn't bring anything new to the table so far. It has a bit of a 9 cauldrons vibe to it. But rather than being a robust and epic journey, it is closer to an embellished outline.

There are a few logic bombs, that make you wounder "why" the author chose that route. Specifically around MC's cultivation:

... more>>

MC suffered for 8 years with zero cultivation progress... but is well versed in low ranked martial arts... He goes into the mountains, and realizes that his cultivation speed increases.... so does that mean he didn't go to the mountains for the previous 8 years?

Then his grandpa comes out and gives him an amazing inheritance with an unrivaled cultivation method... Gee, I wounder if MC had that 8 years ago, if he would have waisted 8 years...

It's just another Wuxia story with a plot-armored over-powered main character. That said, the stories flow isn't half bad and the main character seems to be interesting. Decent writer but lacking in imagination, if you like the rest then you should like this one as well... I'm unsure about continuing personally since it lacks any umph that similar successful stories have.

Both overall quality and translation is top notch, I'm just tired of this story plot. AKA: weak former genius suddenly powers up to amazing levels without anyone noticing, stronger people... more>> keep on coming to kill him but he always powers up or gets rescued. Love interest with a girl that others consider to be too good for him, other girls interested as well... chaos ensues. OP and lucky events abound, enemies come from no-where. No plot building to speak of, just rinse and repeat with some character building. Enough said, if you aren't tired of this style then enjoy. Otherwise, consider yourself warned. <<less

I have found this novel to be very well written and exciting to read.

I do like this type of story, so I don't mind that it is like so many others that are out there, as the author can influence the typical story.
