Starts off well with interesting premise.

An assassin using his knowledge of human psyche, stealth and effective one hit killing to get his once slowly decaying military family out of their path of extinction.

Its pretty interesting since the story is not someone who can do it all like a lot of other generic novels, he has to use his limited tool kit.

... more>> But very soon that stops being the case, he gets a godly ability that makes all his knowledge of being an assassin unnecessary.

He suddenly is able to conncoct pills thay can do basically everything.

And to top it all off he is suddenly even able to control the 5 elements in a world setting where no one else can.

This novel starts well but very quickly becomes very generic with a marry sue lead that can do everything the plot requires off him.

Read to pass the time, but skip if you are looking for something interesting. <<less

This novel started off quite interesting with the MC's transmigration and hiding his abilities. But then as the story progresses, you start to realize there's too much added content to drag out the story. You will especially notice this during fight scenes where the author will put in his analysis of the moves, the spectators at the side will comment on the fight, and the ones involved in the fight will have their thoughts explained. A simple fight scene will thus be dragged out for several chapters.

As a reader that... more>> has been following the Chinese novel translation scene since the beginning, you get to know which novels are truly written well and which ones are info dumps disguised as content. This novel is decent but slowly reaching the useless info content dump category. <<less

Just finish this series. My favorite part is probably the first 1/4 of the book, it remains engaging and entertaining throughout but the last quarter introduces a lot of new characters I didn't care about and most of the characters from the previous 3/4 of the novel is never used again.

The novel is very poetic and there were some very emotional and touching scenes that can get people misty eyed. There are also some very comedic moment and funny characters here, the author makes swearing into almost an art form... more>> at place and is great at creating awkward and absurd scenario that can make me literally laugh out loud.

The main character often use underhanded and deceitful tactic to successfully outsmart his opponent rather than overpower them since he is almost always fighting against opponent way more powerful than himself.

The ending feels a bit rushed and could probably be better off with an couple of more chapters expanding the epilogue. But overall an enjoyable read and something I recommend.


A previous reviewer mention that there is racism in this novel, yes it exist and is incredibly stupid and comically trivial, it leaves me exasperated but is also easily ignored by the reader:

The Racism is so disappointing because it is basically a throw away line that seems like nothing more than a joke but is unfortunately unavoidable as it is integral to the plot and Jun Mo Xie's character.

Note that there is major spoiler ahead:

There is only 1 conversation where it is brought up in any relevant way. Mei Xue Yan, one of Jun Mo Xie's future wife explains the reason why she is letting some of her enemies live even if she had to get hurt herself.

MXY: These people will be critical for the success of a major upcoming battle.

JMX: Who gives a crap? They hurt you so kill them, **** this future battle.

MXY: But this is a battle against monsters! The safety of all the people of this continent is at stake. The enemy are evil and powerful demons that can disappear from site, camouflage themselves into trees and rocks and move like one with the shadow!

JMX: Still not seeing why this is your problem.

MXY: They are all incestuous brothers and sisters Siamese twins that live for thousands of years.

JMX: Eh, that's kinda sick but still not your problem... wait a minute those fighting skills sound very familiar, what language to these speak?

MXY: They have some weird language that no one understand, their battlecry is fierce and disgusting... something like... ba... baka...

JMX:... Bakayaro?

MXY: Yes that's it!

JMX:... !#[email protected]@# Its the dam Japs! Ok I'm in, we gonna kill them all!!!

MXY... what?

And that's basically it! The fact that these evil incest Siamese Twin monster speaks Japanese is pretty much never mentioned again. However it is also inherently unavoidable because Jun Mo Xie's first reason to fight these monster was that they speak Japanese, he as a character is racist and sees no issue with this.

One of his wife is literally a thousand year old bird monster that managed to transform into a human and he has no problem with this at all and even went to great length to protect her dignity but when it comes to the evil monster that speak Japanese, then they must DIE DIE DIE!

The novel never pick up on this again, always referring to these monster thereafter as the Yi tribe people and they are basically a footnote at the end of the novel that got annihilated by Jun Mo Xie in less than a sentence.

I don't know how this has such a high rating. Its very generic with barely average writing that tends to be extremely repetitive even by Chinese web novelist standards. Just try reading chapter 38 without wanting to kill the author for wasting your time. If you can do it, then you don't value your time at all.

If you do decide to read it, read it in large chunks and skim. Even if this is your first Xianxia, there's no point in actually reading all the words. Most of them only... more>> exist to fill the character quota. <<less

I really love this one so much that I read raws of it and its one of the best out there. It has Humor, an OP MC (which comes quite late in the novel), smart MC (which is quite rare) as he uses his past life knowledge fully to strengthen his family so it a must read IMO!

It started very well. Although in the first 300 chapters the MC wasn't particularly strong, the story was hilarious, the characters were entertaining, and all was proceeding smoothly.

However 3 things were steadily highlighted, and turned a five star novel into a two star one (-1 star per issue).

Racism, heavy misogyny, and severe disgust toward conjoined twins.

I won't go into details, but anyone who read this to the 900th chapter knows that the author's hatred for Japanese people is quite deep. You also know that although he has nothing against women,... more>> he firmly believes that the only way for them to find happiness is to stand with their head lowered behind their husband (and to give birth to children). Lastly, him representing Japanese people as vicious amoral rapists, and conjoined twins (+many comments I will avoid) tells a lot on his view regarding both the former and the later.

Yet, if despite all the aforementioned he managed to display brilliant writing and well crafted plot, it wouldn't be that bad. Alas, the MC is as hypocritical as those he scolds, and does the same things why he criticizes, and insult them. Then, his excuse is "I never said that I am a good person."

He is subpar trash that deserves to be damned for all the wanton contradictions, and hypocrisy he made me shallow.

Moreover, the novel loses all form of organization. The power boosts become random with some bs as justification. We see a lot of repetitiveness, the humour loses all appeal... etc

In the end, with all the negative points, I wish I could give this novel a -5 rating, or at least a 0 because it is just trash, and wasted a tremendous part of my time. I would only recommend it to my worst ennemies. <<less

Reviewed up to chapter 93:

Novel is exceptional in actually introducing characters to the reader but that does mean more details to read and slower paced actions then some people might like (if you want a quick paced novels with just random characters being introduced, possibly killed off just as fast, with no substance, but an unrealistic OP protagonist with trouble explaining how they beat others higher rank than themselves... then isn’t for you). You get a vivid plot with politics, actions, and drama with characters who's action are based off... more>> reasonable emotions, a working brain, and individual history. The thing people might like about the novel is that the action and interactions are reasonable/logical due to the detailed characters with their own humanly flaws, that you can somewhat relate to if you were put into their situation (could be a dislike for some people who just wants an MC with OP plot armor that murders everything in their way).

p.s. due to detailed character development, this novel is extremely slow in relationship/harem building department, but hey... first possible catch is a Tsundere. (with other novels you would question how did this supposedly beautiful and unobtainable female not get duped into marriage with a dozen kids yet, with how easy/fast they fall in love) <<less

This novel had so much going for it.

It starts off quite well, but around chapter 250 the author just loses it.
... more>>

1. Worst - Classic tropes about pride for the sake of pride cause everyone to act. Character plot holes galore
Even worst - Example - an MC able to detect all poisons is (as usual) somehow given an aphrodisiac in which he can't restrain himself from ravaging a woman who likes him... Can these authors be any less original?

2. He is able to deal with every complicated situation with ease except in regards to 16-22 yr old women?? His real age is 40+ But, these women come and constantly tell him what to do halfway in the story, and he is "hopeless"... yet he manages to kill hundreds of the most powerful men in ease. - *get real*

3. The characters throw away their original personalities and start doing things for the sake of the plot.
Example - Character is the peak assassin from another world, cold and ruthless, and doesn't do anything unless it's for profit. Yet, by 200c he is taking on enemies that could destroy him, family, and friends for the sake of pride/woman without logical reason.
Not only does this destroy the characters original personality, but is just dumb. *sigh* classic Xuanhuan bs


I regret clicking 3 stars, but in retrospection wish I had rated 2. <<less

Another novel that you can tell that the author is a shut-in with little experience in real life situations and with absolutely no knowledge of the opposite gender.

The more you read the more it becomes apparent that the so called author has no idea how to write and the jokes that made the novel somewhat interesting to read are nowhere to be found.

For example the main character spends 260 chapters hiding his true abilities even from his family only to show them in an extravagant fashion to 3 girls 2... more>> of those may be his enemies. <<less

It began as a fairly interesting story of a calm and mature protagonist with a great attitude, a smart enemy and an interesting plot.

Then more and more predictable filler elements and forced tension started appearing here and there....

Disappointing to say the least. There are many good things about this novel; it had a good and strong start like most Xuanhuan/Xianxia novels, it has great and hot blooded fight scenes that draw you in, it has very well done comedy scattered across the novel (fairly frequent toilet humor included), I wouldn't say the characters are well developed, but they are consistent in terms of keeping to their objective and main principles. Even the members of the harem had their fair share of air time and interaction so I... more>> wouldn't consider it completely shallow.

The reason I rated this 2 stars at best?

The first and most minor reason: wildly inconsistent power levels. Granted, this is unavoidable if you want to feel the hot blooded fight scenes, so this depends entirely on the reader's suspension of disbelief. For example, the author goes to very great lengths to expound on why the power structure is so rigid, why one level difference can make a **** ton of difference; like a gold can casually brute force a fight, while the silver will have to spend most of his energy to even pierce a gold level fighter's natural skin. This is used to put the MC's focus on pure skill and training into focus and his advantage therein. The problem? MC isn't even silver, yet his fingers can tear off throats and pierce chests; the reason given is that this are the human's natural weak points because no one else was smart enough to test this kinda sh*t in life threatening situations amirite?

The second reason: MC's wildly inconsistent Emotional quotient. First chapter alone expounds and bootlicks the MC's assassination skills to the high heavens. Praises his understanding, and sheer ability to manipulate human nature to his every whim as if everyone else besides him are nothing but dolls in the face of his domineering ability. this is raised, ass kissed, worshipped in the whole book and it never stops. With one exception. Whenever he has to deal with a girl, the MC instantly turns in a dumb as **** brute due to his "lack of experience" with 50% of the human race. Now... this might seem a bit abstract, but don't you think that maybe he would have needed to... y'know communicate with a woman somewhere down the line of his "job" as the KING OF ASSASSINS? Were ALL his targets nothing but men? Were all his targets surrounded by nothing but men? Because I'm pretty sure an assassin would have had to know and understand the people around his target to set up an assassination. This gets even worse around the middle chapters when he has to manipulate and fight actual women, and he has zero to no issues whatsoever manipulating them into his kill zone, and yet the author insists on turning the MC into a steaming pile of sh*t every time one of his harem members start crying.

Third reason: Hypocritical as **** MC. Consistently described as ruthless, logical, apathetic. You know, the usual macho Wuxia MC cliche. Only his principles mattered as an assassin, an even if he had to walk to death beacuse of them, he would do it with NO RAGRETS! In actual story? I lost count of the number of times he happily betrays his stated principles. For example: one very early and lengthy ass kissing session from the author describes him as a secretly righteous assassin, kills off slave traders and then forces slave traders'enemy to pay up even though they don't even know him or asked him to do anything. In story > ruthlessly abandons orphans and slaves he saves from a slave trade house. making sure the say every few sentences that he would have happily stood aside and let them do their sh*t if it wasn't because of pure coincidence. Even after saving them, and seeing that they have no "talent" and are worse than wastes because of their crippled limbs, still advises his uncle to just end their misery and kill them off because they have no money to support the orphans they saved.

This is just one of MANY MANY hypocritical things he does. Talks a sh*t ton of things about how he's a great. efficient assassin. One silent strike and no one in the world stand up to him.

In actual fight? At least half the chapter is taken up by his boasting before an entirely shounen style fight takes place. Reallly.... really hypocritical. <<less

Rare example where reincarnated assasin actually moves around like assasin and it is not just his backstory. Fairly similar to black belly doctor in some parts but it does not kill the joy of read. MC gets his cheat item with reincarnation. Story moves around power struggle in capital so far and training his own troops. Personally I recommend this.

The novel started out great and had some really decent moments and political intrigue. However on reading beyond the current translation I got a bit tired with the author pulling threads and setting up conflicts but not resolving them. Now there is a long list of things which have accumulated and given the pace of writing I have my doubts whether the author can really pull it off. In any case, the list of story threads and conflicts are:

... more>>

1. Increasing Grandfather's strength - I have lost count but my guess its being on the table for at least 50 chapters. Near 175th chapter there is an intro for "how" it is supposed to be done but ingredients are "scarce". This for the most part should have been one of the quickest thread to be resolved.
2. Struggle with Li Family - This has been one of the central points. Still unresolved after 250 but the author thought why not simmer the plot even more and he has added "Supreme Xian" as the master setting up another conflict.
3. Struggle with Snow City - This has been set with around 115 chapter. This is still unresolved and there is some other side plot which gets introduced around 200 chapters. Another "Supreme Xian warrior".
4. Struggle with Blood Soul Mountain Village (TL might have a different name) - Introduced towards 175 chapter. Still unresolved and while the story has been set to progression, there is another "Supreme Xian warrior" involved.
5. Teaching Ying Bo Kong - Another "Supreme Xian" warrior.
6. Setting up business side story - Working with Fatty Tang around 180ish chapter, still not set in motion
7. Getting Dugu Family under his thumb for drinking his "heavenly" wine
8. The Heaven Beast (TL might use a different name) storyline
9. Conflict with the girl from the brothel - Forgot the name


Don't get me wrong, the story is meatier than your average CN LN with their "cultivation" and "staged matches", I would have liked author to close threads before opening new ones. With 20% of the novel gone and author will need to talk about MC's cultivation and resolve these threads, I am not very optimistic. I am going to read another 200+ chaps ie nearly 50% to see if some of these things to get a good resolution, jf not most probably a 2 star would be the grade. <<less

Another great novel by this author. 4.2/5

While not on par with the masterpiece that is Transcending the Nine Heavens, it's still a great novel. The MC is amazing, most of the rest of the cast is terrific, the villains are not the usual, common and generic super powerful big bads. The language is great, the banter between the characters is godly at times, you wont see the pointless bloat to reach a higher word count that a lot of other CN web novel authors spam out instead of trying... more>> to construct a good story. And it's laugh out loud funny at times, not chuckle funny, I mean actual funny. What this novel lacks is direction, after 156 chapters it still feels like there are no true proper goals aside from usual ones, where the MC wants to reach the top, get revenge for his family etc. The world building isn't that great either to be fair. Those are the main flaws of this otherwise great novel. The good outwights the bad 10x over though, it's easily among the top 1% of the novels being translated. <<less

I have read until chapter 113 or v2c13, and I got to say this is one of my favorite. The store is good, the translation is good, the characters are good and you can see that the author is butting a lot of work on it just from setting up the layout off the store, Yes it might take a while for a story to get going per say, but I like how we get to see the MC deal with the world as he just got there and need... more>> time to understand his surrounding a lot better.

Slower paced, but the author seems to be laying a solid foundation for the remainder of the story. A well written and funny story with a actually smart MC.

More political and strategical maneuvering than fights soo far in the translated chapters, but its what makes this novel different than the others and adds entertainment it.

Short version: Not as cringe worthy as a lot of Wuxia. Decent beginning and tolerable until ch. 728 personally. But eventually extremely cringe worthy. I suspect has to do with author trying to stretch story out thousands of chapters with a lot of filler. Formula: MC steps on ant, ant farm comes to kill MC, MC and ant farm posture and pull their d*cks out and keep measuring each others instead of fighting for 20+ chapter then actually fight.

Long version: A lot of these Chinese LNs really are getting on... more>> my nerves. I have an unusually high tolerance for bad writing and story telling because I love fantasy elements. I picked up this novel coming from dropping ancient strengthening technique because I was getting annoyed at how every woman was "world shaking" and "earth shattering", barf. I still read close to a thousand chapters on that novel.

So I kept reading this because hey I'm not barfing while reading it, until chapter 728. I am seriously considering dropping this LN as well. Way too much posturing, and every character is a hypocrite, and will kill a whole family for someone stepping on an ant inside their homes... This novel is supposed to be about being an awesome assassin but what you end up with is 10% action, and 90% arguing like little children despite everyone being supposedly really old and wise. They all act like little children, including MC.


In chapter 728, MC confronts almost dying 100 experts from 3 holy lands by talking to them to death... Seizing heavens this, heavens that, Mei admonishing MC for being ruthless after 500 experts came to kill Mei, MC, and their family. Way too much you didn't give me face blah bullsh*t. This chapter was supposed to be the resolution to this arc, but the arc as extended by 100 experts and MC talking about bullsh*t. And Mei being brainless like she always is. Has this author ever interacted with real people?


The only big plus side to this novel: at least it is 10x better than Ancient Strengthening technique. But still only 2/5 star quality. Shows how bad AST is. And based on how many chapters I read for both novels despite being super cringy shows how high my tolerance is for bad. <<less

    • MC, who bullies others more, instead of getting bullied by others.
    • MC pretends to be an arrogant young master (debauchee)
    • One of his friends is actually a debauchee and arrogant young master
    • MC is an assassin and it is refreshing and new to read about his occupation and his role and behaviour in this new world.
    • I like the different characters and their interactions. They aren't 1 dimensional and they have actually different personalities.

    • the story is sometimes very slow paced. For example, there is an entire chapter, describing MC stepping out of his tent and walking a few steps and another entire chapter was used to describe the usage and characteristics of a single fruit
    • translation quality (it isn't that bad, but it isn't good either)
    • sometimes contradictions in personalities and actions of some characters (out of character).
    • sometimes mc's actions were stupid and felt forced, just for the sake of plot developments

You can most of the time safely skip paragraphs entirely, if they begin with the following words: Therefore, Moreover, However, Furthermore, In addition, In fact, etc.

This novel was a disappointment. It was an enjoyable read at the beginning, but got more and more peverse and long winded further on. Reading this is now a chore.

In short, this is another one of those standard-OP-MC-harem-plotwhatplot type novels that are everywhere. Only thing that stands out from the others is how the writer tries to make it seem like it has a plot. I've read 486 chapters and I still can't tell this novel apart from others nor can I remember any distinguishing traits or storyline.

The author tries... more>> to make the actions of the MC look relevant and justified, but in truth all it does is to make me think that the author is playing us readers for fools. The author tries to justify the MC's actions but it does is make it look more disgusting and sexist. <<less
