Weird that there are no reviews. I will try to give you an idea of what to expect from it. I'll start by saying that it is quite different compared to most xianxia. While it is about getting revenge, the way it goes about it is pleasant. The good points:
1. It's a fast-paced novel. The MC doesn't take 200 chapters to finally gain a rank-up.
2. MC is actually smart. Yeah, not kidding. He knows when it's time to lay low and when it's time to stand out. He knows when to attack and when to back off. It's basic wisdom that most MCs of Chinese novels sorely lack. For example

while he was on the run from some assassins, he had to lay low. Someone sent his disciple to attack the MC right before a trial was about to start. But knowing that his enemies' spies could be lurking around, the MC pretended to be weak and let himself be defeated easily. Ofc, he got even with him when the time came, but the point is that the MC has common sense.

3. The fight scenes are very good. In this novel, fights don't stretch over tens of chapters in which the enemies speak so much that you'd think they're having a chat over a cup of tea and biscuits, not fighting to the death. They are rather concise. But satisfying.
4. The MC does not get powerful at an outrageous pace nor does he bump every chapter into some heavenly treasure. (WuDongQianKun flashbacks). There are plenty of other talented and powerful enough characters to give him a run for his money.
5. So far, there has been no romance - for which I am glad because most Chinese novels authors seem to unable not to transfer their wet dreams in their works. Most xianxia are shitty harems, with women sooo attractive that they could topple empires, popping up at every step of the MC and all gunning for his d*ck as if he were the last man alive in the world. This novel is not like that. At least not until now

The bad points:
1. There isn't much that I dislike about this novel. Only the "frog and the well" cliche that makes its appearance towards the end of the first volume. But this is a minor thing considering that it's a Chinese novel we're talking about.
2. The translation. Yeah, unfortunately, especially in the first 100ish chapters, there are some issues with it. The translator will confuse you greatly in regards to the cultivation system because of how often he partially changes the names of various ranks/stages. But it's still readable.

EDIT: Webnovel website, like it always does, restricted the access to this novel. Any novel that becomes popular ends up like that. Basically, you need to pay real money to read the translation. So if you're not willing to pay money for it, don't get invested in this novel.

Feels like I've read this story a million times already. Not really spoilers, just a list of tropes.

... more>>
  • parents missing
  • MC is tr*sh and looked down on
  • MC isn't actually tr*sh but magical MacGuffin he's really super duper special
  • beautiful childhood friend betrayal
  • room temperature IQ
  • MC seems to be alone in a sea of people, none of which seem to stop him from being ret*rded
  • trips over himself to find magical power up plot devices
  • face slapping and arrogance
  • super strong people out of nowhere who exist just to plot the MC or oppress him
  • and more!

So far this is generic as heck, almost as if it's a just a book written by a committee of bots fed cultivation novel tropes, and it is nearly totally lacking in charm or grace. The only "adversity" the MC goes through is plot that exists to highlight how far his hand travels to slap someone in the face. So many cliches! <<less

Probably too early (chapter 7), but I barfed.

One of the earlier review mentioned that the MC is smart and can lie low. In another, the reviewer said he has room temperature IQ. Going by early chapters, I'd go with the second opinion.

Perhaps the author took time to realise when the MC was being s*upid, and perhaps it gets better. But I'm not going to waste my life waiting for that to happen.

Dumber than a wooden fire-escape.

You get your cliche start of MC being a useless young master but there's actually something inside his body sucking up all his cultivation energy. When the item is full, he will cultivate at super speeds and smacks everyone's face with his talent.

One good thing about this novel is that it moves at a fast pace, so he's cultivation is on steroids compared to some other novels. Another good thing is that MC doesn't go around provoking people with his bad attitude and actually hangs back. Bad thing is that... more>> there's always a place he discovers where people have a higher cultivation environment, so he is constantly chasing after something. And there's quite a few times he's about to die and has to be saved by someone. The MC is also kinda 1-dimensional in the way that he feels like a cardboard cut out. The bonds he forms with his family and close friends aren't written well so you feel like he isn't close to anyone.

Worst thing about this novel that I took away 1 star rating is that the first 500 or so chapters have normal sentences mixed with Engrish. You also have changing names and descriptions of things. I find that this happens very often with the translation group Transn.

Overall, this novel is somewhat entertaining but don't expect too much from it. <<less

The MC is a tremendous sword artist that did not have cultivation, but later got a mysterious skill. He is OP, right now he is focus on elevating his sword skills and getting revenge on his family. Everything has been straight-forward and no such sightings of arrogant young masters so far.

One of the worst novel that I've read. It's surprising even for me that I manage to "survive" until this 900-ish chapters.


... more>>

Every "great experts" in this novel feels like know at least general situation regarding their world but somehow when the new arc starts they explain that "ohh you must be from that desolate place, welcome to the center of world where all of the top experts lives" but after the arc is ending they said "you must be realized that there's always a bigger fish in the ocean. Yeah there are more powerful realm up there, and this world is just one of the many worlds out there" From chapter 1 to 987 this have happened 5 TIMES already. By seeing there's still 3000+ chapters ongoing, I believe the author would use the same sh*it again.

And another thing, the MC have several goals to achieve in every arcs. But whenever he manage to accomplish one of them, and then another goals "flies away" to another realm. "Your enemy is that one" after he killed him "ohh he is just a puppet from someone, he is from upper realm so you must get stronger if you want to kill him", or " Yeaahh I can finally kill you" and then the enemy is saved by senior brother who don't comes from where. And this goes on to the elders, and then the head of the sect, and finally they escape to another upper realm

Pretty generic Wuxia novel with an OP MC - MC overcomes one enemy, another stronger one appears. He defeats that enemy and an even more stronger one appears, and so on...

MC fights -> He keeps winning -> enemy calls big brother/master/helper/elder w/e -> MC loses big time -> He powers up -> Back to MC fights. So far, that's what has been happening...

Not badly written - MC actually has brains, and likes to use them sometimes, he doesn't arrogantly picks up fights, knows when to lower his head. There are... more>> no useless Harem members, no crassness or unnecessary drama, fights/events are pretty fast-paced. For a change, MC's friends and his father are not useless hanger-ons, and are OP in their own ways... interestingly, MC's father is so OP, he can be MC in his own novel...

The translations are a bit crappy, besides sentences sometimes not making sense, there is no fixed translations to some words like cultivation levels, places names - they change very often, making it confusing to read, sometimes even within the same sentence, same thing is translated differently... <<less

Honestly, this is one of the best cultivation novels I've ever read. Although generic, the plot is well thought out and the MC is consistent in his character. The power ups and his higher strength compared to other people is actually quite logical, compared to other protagonists from other novels as well. Although the story is a little bland, it keeps you intrigued because of the progression in the MC's power. Although the cannon fodders are obviously arrogant and such, it isn't taken to a whole new level. What I... more>> like the most is that the story has no harem and that the MC is set on one girl. Honestly, this novel deserves better reviews because it is most definitely worth a read. <<less

Great story overall but things are dragging out a bit too much at this point in the story. I decided to drop it since there's not much I really care about at this point and ... more>>

it's obvious that it's going to take forever for the MC to save his wife. It's hundreds of chapters between each time he meets her and every time it's just another "you're too weak" situation and the wait continues.


That's the last thread I care about and I've run out of patience. So yeah, dropped, but it's definitely not a bad story. <<less

This novel for the most part is ok, but there are two times so far that would be a novel killer for me usually, but I have nothing else to read. This MC sometimes becomes a yes man, to people stronger than him on the same side. I would much rather him go it alone than to be happy under someones boot. That is not an MC quality, that is a little b*tch quality. I guess you can tell by now this novel has really pissed me off.

... more>>

The start of the novel his mother has been kidnapped, and his father severely damaged. The whole first of the novel is about going to save his mom, and get revenge, from her clan that has imprisoned her and hurt his father. After almost 200 chapter he gits to her, savers her, and kills one nobody. It took two chapters, and then he helps them out Wtf. Well at least they learned there lesson right? (Smh) That was the first time I almost dropped this, and there are a couple more just as bad.


The real men in the world are going the way off the dodo, and may go extinct. The new men are becoming sissy, and dont mind if people walk over them, or take there women. When I say real men I do not mean jocks and bully's. The real men Im talking about, are the head of the house a rock that all can depend on, he would be the one in front if his family needs him. He wouldn't let himself get weak, because how could he protect anyone then? There are less and less, and one day you may not even be able to find one no matter how you look, and thats a sad world if you ask me. If there are no real men around to take as role models then how can the kids become real men? I really think that is what happened to japan, too many of there fearless real men died protecting there country now they are left like this, and America now seems to be going this direction as well. The reason I put this here, is because as time goes on you can feel it coming through the novels. Im not targeting this novel, because Japanese novels are far worse, and seeing this coming about is making me feel sick to my stomach. Well sorry for the rant review, but this is the first time in all the years I have been here to do such a thing. I just feel sorry for the family's, because who will the depend on when there scared or hurt, and need someone to block the storm for them? Ill stop ill stop damn lol, guess im getting truly triggered. The only example of a real man I have seen is my granddad, and even he is gone now. One example, of the last time I saw him stand up and protect our family he was already almost seventy years old, and there should have already been another real man by then so he cold just rest, but no. A guy around 30 or younger come to our house cussing us and beating on the door, as a kid that's scary shit. My Grand dad took over like he always would, and opened the door, before the guy broke it down. The first thing that guy did was hit my granddad right in the face, but it wasn't over lol. My granddad grabbed that guy by the shirt and first hit busted that guys face wide open, blood was everywhere. He then proceeded to throw the guy on the ground and almost beat the guy to death, and told him he better never come around his family again. He stood out there over the guy till the cops and ambulance came and took care of that as well. We have guns but, he would take care of thing like a man, not with a gun unless needed. How did women razing children and keeping the family straight become a derogatory thing? I would say the women have an even more important roll, because you may only need protection once or twice. <<less

Honestly, this novel is pretty generic but it is one of the better generic novels.

... more>>

We start off with the MC getting betrayed by his childhood sweetheart, this already rang alarm bells that this was going to be generic but at least it wasn't dragged out for too much in this novel.


One point I find negative about this novel is that there are too many 'skies above the skies'. The MC is constantly going to a higher world (more than I can remember in any novels) which gets tedious at some point to be honest.

Another point is that the author forgets about the MC's skills or other things completely at times. Whenever the MC stops using a skill, the author never bothers to explain until randomly many chapters later like 'oh this skill isn't useful to me anymore'.

A guy was suppressed in his weapon for 100 over chapters and was forgotten until he needed to use that weapon to suppress anothee guy, then it was just 'oh he exists!'.


Imo the character building for side characters aren't too great either. It's mostly about the MC in the novel and not many about his friends. It just seems that the author felt that sworn brothers drinking with the MC means that they are close and so they are just always drinking when they meet. They never adventure together, or do anything honestly after the early days.

Another problem is that there are way too many timeskips in this novel. Unsure whether the author just can't think of compelling small arcs, but many of the MCs powerups are just he meditated for abit and then 3years later, he just becomes strong.

Some positives are that at least the MC tries to have a semblance of a brain at times, his family isn't complete deadweight and actually might even overpower him at times.

With all that said though, this novel is a fantastic timesinker and at least there weren't too many annoying tropes and cliche. If you do not mind plotholes/no explanation at times, this novel is probably for you. Sorry for the bad english <<less

Story is ok for the first 400 chapters. In fact, it is pretty generic but solid.

However it gets out of hand by 1900 chapters which is 30, 000 years later.

Everyone by now is dead so it is kinda pointless for all the earlier characters to exist.

... more>> Then everyone is a reincarnator, even his father, mother, ex-wife, even villains. So it becomes a endless cycle.

I only give 3 stars because I don't like the way the author reincarnates father and mother. I not reading a family novel... sorry. But if you like it, then it is 4 or 5 stars for you.

There is no pains in this story. Meaning; the MC is going to have a smooth ride.

I stop reading ard the 1900-2000 chapters because I can't stand the reason the MC disguises himself and how his enemy even know he is Hong Chen. It is not mentioned in the translation. He was just in the cave and ppl thinks he is Hong Chen and he isn't even say a single word.

Then he has to pretend to sneak into the imperial palace to do his killing. Turn up no one is his match. Because he only have to kill them all. But he makes a great hassle to pretend to go inside, only to provoke people by killing people. You know what I mean?

My brain shatters on this. <<less

This novel is not bad but not exactly good either

the world setting of the novel is a classic of the MC lived in a corner of the world then keeps going to the “central continent” “higher world” etc...

the MC is the cliche young master who can’t cultivate but later unlocks an op cultivation technique and is actually a genius who’s compression is godlike and clearly he is the only one who can improve or learn new techniques but unlike normal MC in these novel he knows when to lay low and does not go rushing into things “most of the time” of his luck is bless by the heavens and any scent that is held very 10 years 100 years 500 years etc.. he is always there right at the time of the event and I never have the thought the MC will take an L cause at the critical moment he will power up in the whole novel so far he only struggled once and it was arguable

the hugs that gets under my skin the the most about the novel is level of plot armour the MC has he has like. 6+ trump cards that I swear no matter who attacks him he can escape or power up or use some weapon to kill


over I would give it a 2.5 stars it’s not bad for a quick read and would recommend to anyone who is bored an likes an op MC who follows many cliche

MC's cultivation is on steroids. A light read without complicated plot or sentences. Not bad per se, but filled with cliches, which can put off a lot of people who went through ATG MGA and similar novels years ago. I've only read 14 chapters so I won't leave a rating.
