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... more>> knows when to attack and when to back off. It's basic wisdom that most MCs of Chinese novels sorely lack. For example
Spoiler

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.

[collapse]
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 sh*tty harems, with women sooo attractive that they could topple empires, popping up at every step of the MC and all gunning for his **** 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. <<less

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

... more>>
Spoiler
  • parents missing
  • MC is trash and looked down on
  • MC isn't actually trash 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 re****ed
  • 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!
[collapse]

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 stupid, 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.

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.

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
