Questioning Heaven, Desiring the Way


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

A piece of animal hide made him give up becoming an immortal.
Millions had to die just for him to catch a glimpse of the Way of Heaven.

The Earth shattered just as it was formed
Immortals and demons disappeared
The age old tale of Nuwa creating mankind
Is this the revolt of his predecessors or a scheme of the Way of Heaven?

He does not cultivate for the sake of becoming an immortal or for the sake of longevity.

He only wants to know the answer to one question: What lies above the Way?

The TL did a good job of picking this novel up. Firstly, this novel isn't a direct journey of a man just becoming more powerful through different arcs. But a main character, who gradually uncovers a veil surrounding the cultivation world.

It feels like as time goes on, that you are also discovering the mystery, including the uniqueness of how it all links back to the beginning. This means that it allows the reader to subconsciously connect the dots as time goes on. Which a lot of novels cannot do due... more>> to the endless info dumps.

So compressed info with minimal effort = Good structure, realistic dialogue, good pacing etc.

Now, the MC...

This main character is extremely driven to uncover the truth, that he will sacrifice anyone or anything. So the reader will see the tough decisions he will make throughout the story, that steels his will even more than before.

Character development for this MC is exactly like this. Tough decisions make him tougher and straying from his path is not an option. <<less

This book is extremely meh at times and at other times its the best thing written. It avoids needless bloodshed, not by having the MC take a bunch of needless hits, but having him maneuver in smart ways. This becomes more and more apparent, and it doesn't devolve into useless slaughter. Something of note, is that the author is an outspoken critic of wuxia tropes and other tropes in general. This at times makes the writing new and very interesting, but at other times really makes things overcomplicated for no... more>> reason.

There are also times when four wall breaks a little bit and the MC rants about certain tropes in wuxia. In one of the beginning chapters the MC rants about how swordsmen are basically third rate martial artists that are broke. Pretty funny.

I've read a lot of books, and I think this one can easily rank in my top ten. This is a story that mixes many elements of Xianxia culture, with a completely ruthless protagonist. The author did an outstanding job at describing an immortal, which is rare, this MC is ruthless and self-interested he will do anything to seek the dao.... more>>

At the start, as a prologue, MC did pretty much did slaughter the entire earth for his cultivation path.


The book is composed of two parts, and this book is the first part.

Finally, the author is remarkable, for keeping a pure dark novel and he does not hesitate to play with the 404. It is a book that is far more than worth seeing, with many twists and turns I will not say more, I let you enjoy reading it.
