The world is made up of the five elements, and it could be divided into Yin and Yang.

Beneath the heavens, on the ancient divine center continent, billions of lives thrive in the prosperous era of the cultivation.

Across its vast lands, happiness, sadness, reunion, and separation played out in the long lives of those seeking immortalhood.

Light is always accompanied by darkness, and under the radiance of the heavens, there are silent shadows moving about…

I got hooked by the initial translated chapters, decided to go ahead and make do with MTL to see how the rest of the story goes.

All I can say is, unlike a lot of entries here in NovelUpdates, this one reads and feels like an ACTUAL novel. For people looking for a lot of action or quick thrills, I'd have to say that this one isn't for you. There aren't a ton of fights, no exploration that suddenly grants uber loot or techniques or merit laws. No sudden enlightenments, no... more>> power ups, heck there's hardly any mention of cultivation at all. What we do have is an interesting plot with an MC who's the xianxia equivalent of an experienced undercover / secret agent and has a lot of mysteries of his own.

So far, highly recommended (Currently at c138). Hopefully the novel stays on track past the 200+ chapter mark (which is where some erstwhile interesting novels break down). <<less

The novel reads very differently from any novel I've read before. It has a touch of mystery to it, and xianxia nonsense like unbelievable luck and ridiculous power-ups have been avoided. Definitely looking forward to reading more. Also the translation quality is really great. Hope that the current translator goes forward with it.

This novel has very beautiful descriptions. It makes the story progress slightly slower, but if you were to read slowly (at least for me), you can picture the events clearly to the minute details. The buildup to the story is slow, but it has a mysterious touch to it, with the background and the information of the world being released bit by bit. (If possible, don't read spoilers. It makes the story more interesting that way.) The buildup is slow, yes, but when the climax comes, it will leave your... more>> hairs standing at ends.

It's true that this novel won't appeal to many. It doesn't have much fighting, there's no extreme power ups or face slapping etc. But to some, this will be a treasure. So, give it a try, and maybe you'll like it. <<less

It's really slow, and descriptive but it's executed well. The story is good, but it has more character moments than plot progression. If you've been looking for something that is rather well written, this is definitely something you should check out. I don't think I need to talk about the story itself more than that.
