God of Illusions

Description

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

Before he was a little over 10 years old, he was the nightmare of the Gorge of Heroes and the headache of countless people that had been abandoned by the world.

After leaving the Gorge of Heroes, he became a legendary figure of the number one academy in the continent, and he alone brought numerous changes to it.

Thereafter he stepped foot onto the continent to become a legend, but the road to become a legend was far more difficult than he’d imagined….

On a continent where puppet masters reign supreme, using anything and everything as weapons: living creatures, shoes, daggers, pendants, clothes, shields, guns — which they call puppets, this is the story of Bai Xiaofei with his trusty sidekick, Huskie, on a quest to find out exactly what happened to his parents and become the greatest illusion stream puppet master the world has ever seen. This is a story of wit, plot twists, love, strategy, cultivation, humor, and the unknown.

To be honest, I was attracted to the title and the summary. They're a perfect setup for a story that I would enjoy!

For the first 25 chapters, I enjoyed it. Really do. And then the "Savage Class" appeared, I'm okay with side-characters development but these characters? I really didn't give a sh*t about them, hell, I don't even remember their names! Even worse is that the novel focuses on them (currently), I was devastated.

Expected a cool novel with the main character similarly to Bai Xiaochun, which I got. But the... more>> story is completely ruined in other aspects. The story is there! The history of what happened was set up! And the mysterious backstory of the MC is there as well. Alas, the other characters are simply not endearing enough.

I dropped it once at chapter 35 for reasons, picked it up today and read to the latest, still wants to drop it.
It's early AF but at the same time, it's 55 chapters in. Maybe I wanted a solo run like all Xianxia/Xuanhuan but so what? I like them. <<less

This novel is pretty funny with a refreshing, crafty MC who gets into endless amounts of trouble. He's a shameless flirt with a smart mouth and a constantly increasing number of enemies. I had a great laugh out of watching him cause trouble after trouble. It's not like unfortunate events happen to him by accident but rather that he himself causes these events. He is clearly a leading member of the Death-Seeking Army. His cunning survival is quite funny. The characters have demonstrated at least some depth in their personalities... more>> thus far, but this is definitely more of a comedy series than a drama. However, there are some warning points to watch out for...

Very early in the series, a rape scene occurs. I can read stories with rape just fine, but the way it occurs in this series makes this series lose a star in my regards.
Spoiler

The MC practices a rare cultivation technique that somehow causes an aphrodisiac effect on him and the surrounding area. When he becomes aroused, instead of letting the MC use his self-restraint or touch himself to deal with the effects, his so-called master kidnaps a nearby woman and forces her to be near them. She is likewise influenced by the aphrodisiac, and the two have s*x while drugged. Thanks to the teacher, both characters were essentially drugged and raped by each other. This is something that could have been left alone, and it was completely unreasonable to force someone to be raped just to help the MC with his lust. Worse yet, the master says that the MC can level up by using this technique with virgins, which implies more rape will occur in the future.

[collapse]

I admit that it's funny when he appears to attract men as well.

Another issue I have is the term "puppets." The "puppets" in this series have hardly any similarities with puppets as usually recognized in the English language. The only semblance they have is as objects controlled by other people. They are more like artifacts, weapons, or tools rather than genuine puppets. I don't know if there were other ways to translate this term from the original Chinese, but switching out the term "puppet" for another word or even just keeping the term in pinyin would make it easier to follow. <<less

It is hard to write a review after reading only 25 chapters, but I am liking it right now. So far, this seems kind of like a cheaper version of "A Will Eternal".

The author looks like he is going for a more comedic tone, sometimes succeeding but sometimes failing. Though what is different about this novel from A Will Eternal is that this MC's shamelessness factor is reduced, and his brain factor has been increased.

The protagonist is brave and doesn't back down when women push on him, is quite crafty,... more>> has a few tricks up his sleeves, and he seems to have a brain (for now). Put simply, this is a (somewhat) smart MC, who looks like he is in here for fun.

The author also doesn't give you a lot of exposition. He leaves things as it is, and only gives you the information once the particular thing is mentioned, so you don't have to worry about reading an entire chapter of exposition.

As for the harem tag - it is very obvious. From early chapters, the MC will engage with women, but the women don't seem to be retarded and don't just bend over while presenting their butts on the first meetings. They will talk to the MC, be amused by his straightforward attitude, but there will be no heart rate picking up, or blushing after just a few words.

Lastly, the world itself... Well, it is hard to say anything about the world right now, because, as I mentioned before, the author gives information only when its needed. Right now, we know only the basic outline of the world and it has the average cultivation ladder.

The unique point of this novel is that the cultivators here rely on puppets. These puppets can be man-made inanimate ones, or living beings under a contract. All puppets also have grades, depending on which colour aura they release. This point has a lot of potential as the type of cultivator you are depends on the puppet you wield, so the whole puppet thing will either make or break this novel.

Some of the fun is negated by the fact that MC gains a very big power boost early on, but it is still acceptable, because the MC studies one of the weakest puppet arts. Though just barely acceptable, because it still takes out the fun of weak to strong thing.

Well, in any case, this novel has some flaws, but I still I find it enjoyable; That's why, I am willing to give this novel 4 starts for the time being. <<less

Well, I think I know where all those ratings came from. See the tag for Rape?

Honestly, I feel that the s*xual cultivation is totally unnecessary... it's just an excuse for the MC to power up easily, especially since relations are more interesting than blind training.

It's a pretty interesting story, but it hasn't been too deep. It has cliches, but they're done well enough.

... more>> Cons:

-author dumps a whole class of names at you in one go

-I'm not a fan of the harem, but the girls in the harem aren't bad

-everything seems to be going way too smooth for the MC

-predictable

-not a fan of the rape+rape victim becomes lover, and the way he threatens his puppets (he treats them well mostly, but still) :<

Pros:

-fun MC

-cliches used well

-interesting system of cultivation

-intriguing mysteries behind MC <<less

I want to give it a 3 but I've seen worse novels with better ranking than this so I'll go for 4 stars now (I'll change it later if it goes up the ladder).

This novel so far is not bad but not that much captivating, also it's slow paced (with a slow release update), no major mistakes by the author except the beauties falling from the sky and some generic things.

Even though with rape tag, it's nothing explicit and nothing mature.

Recommendable for teens.

The Protagonist Bai Xiaofei is very crafty and smart, likes to play tricks on others.

Trouble follows wherever he goes but he handles things well, making me wonder whether he is Lord Bai's descendant (Bai Xiaochun from A Will Eternal)

A puppet master's first puppet plays a very big role in their growth and illusion type which the BX has is considered the weakest.

His first encounter with his master was really odd but the term " an old master taught me" which many main characters of various cultivation novels use when... more>> they have no way of explaining their sudden knowledge is very apt here.
Spoiler

those words were precisely used during that encounter

With only 2 things and 1 near-death experience, he set off on his adventure. <<less
