Two hundred years ago, on the Battlefield of the Blue River, the last remaining army of the Empire of Light collapsed in the midst of demonic outcries. As the last Field Marshal and Emperor fell, the chaotic world of the Western River no longer had a common ruler. Factions were formed and endless conflicts ensued, military might became the only currency of survival, and the dream to reunite the lands became the sole goal of many rulers in the generations that came after.

In the south-eastern part of the land, a powerful faction with over two hundred years of history – House ZiChuan – fought off the Demons to the east, defended against the House Liu Feng to the west, and contained the House Lin to the south. In order to accomplish their great ambitions and extend the bloodline of their family, countless heroes of ZiChuan gave their lives in order to make this magnificent hymn come to life. This is a story about this legendary family and a hundred years of their blood and tears.

If you first start reading this novel, you may find the story a bit bland and all over the place. Well, you are right. The story start off incredibly slow, and the author likes to introduce tons of random plot devices purely for comedy value with no actual impact to the story itself.

However the story is a very serious one, and will show itself as such as the story progresses. Slowly, but surely the story will pick up momentum, and will take a drastic turn once it reaches the first... more>> major campaign in the Far east, which happens somewhere in the second half of the first book. (Around chapter 10).

If you wish to give this novel a chance, I would recommand you to keep reading till that point, If you don't like it then, you should stop and move on. <<less

This is one of the more unique novels I have read here in novelupdates, qualified to be called as a hidden gem. The main MC is truly shameless but his shamelessness is the source for some funny times in the story. Also, I think that the world is pretty well-built and the characters are all well-balanced. This is a pretty good read so I highly suggest that you read it and who knows, you might like it too.

Review as chapter 8 part 1

So much comedy, but the author manage to instill some heartache too!

We met with Xiu, an orphan adopted by the late head of Zi Chuan. At first he’s described as a carefree young man, shameless to the rooftop and manage to turn every of his effort as being seen as just a ‘lucky’ encounter. Together with his brothers of three, they joining hand in hand for upholding the glory of house Zi Chuan.

... more>>

but I really have a guts that their friendship is going torn sooner or later because of the circumstances.


Not like you typical Chinese novel, when you confront with beautiful female its instantly became a harem member of our MCthis one NOT!), the antagonist is well thought too, not your typical brainless idiot who only has one trick of their sleeves then became numbless zombie awaiting MC to reap their heads off. They are cunning, and planning every step of their action. Even the 'good guy' one isn't as holy as they firstly being described. They are human too, and make mistake.

The author really like to jump into the future by saying, in they will become famous, or this scene is going down on history as mark of beginning of something.

I found Easy Going Scan as a manhwa translator, but they manage to bring description of what happened in the novel eloquently. They put a footnote every time I, as non-Chinese speaker find some reference to stuff Chinese reader familiar with. In the comedy part, the phrasing can instill so much laughter that make me being stared weirdly by my sibling.

definitely worth read! <<less

One of the funniest novels I have ever read! If you like a good laugh then this novel is definitely for you. The beginning chapters were confusing at first because it already portrayed the present lives of the characters with a few flashbacks on their past. But as the story progresses, it becomes more exciting because you don't know what will happen next with all the plotting, alliances, betrayals and secrets taking place with a lot of characters whose names can be somewhat similar sounding and again throwing you in... more>> for a loop. I really like military war novels like this with action, drama, romance and above all comedy. Worth the 5/5 rating. Thank you to the translators of Easy Going Scans for the job well done. Thumbs up! <<less

i have to say this first, "Don't be fooled by the lack of chapter number, one part of the chapter almost equal with one chapter in regular web novel"

I think it's a unique novel, and it has potential to be good. It's start rather slow but it's alright, we got a promising background and some interesting character. This novel deal with politics, war strategy, and of course some action. But, I don't know what the author thinking when he wrote about some modern stuff in this novel, it kinds of... more>> threw me off.

Well, when you fed up with killing spree and bullsh*t luck MC in xuanhuan or meaningless harem n beta MC in JP WN, you should try this novel. <<less

This novel is too much of a mess. I can’t tell what kind of person the author wants to make the MC and I certainly can’t tell if he’s going to keep the story consistent. At first I thought this was going to be a fantasy novel with no modern technology but out of no where the author breaks the third wall and blatantly says “I’m adding this Mercedes because I can so deal with it” and then mentions sneakers and porn magazines. I kept reading a bit more to... more>> find myself disliking the MC more and more and so I dropped it.

While my review is based only on chapter 1 and 2 I can’t say my review was done too hastily. The story spiraled out of control so fast in just 2 chapters that I really can’t see how reading on would be a good idea. <<less
