The genius cultivator Lin Xuanzhi didn’t let down the world in his past life, yet he only betrayed a single Yan Tianhen.

It was only when he had been backstabbed and killed by his closest friends, teacher and fellow disciples that he knew what kind of unforgivable crimes he had committed.

i must admit I was sceptical before starting, but soon realized my mistake and started fully enjoying this novel, from story to characters and incredible humor. The story is simple but leaves a way for expansion, it was really easy to read, there was no dwelling on unnecessary details, things move pretty fast.

what really caught me first is the mistake the ML made in the past and his re-evaluation of good and bad. While many other honey-tongued snakes put him against his didi, his younger brother stayed true to his... more>> kind nature, which made ML see the righteous and demonic people in new light. I love this type of thing since MDZS that not all evil is evil and not all good is good.

the story operates on many cliches like: rebirth and trying to mend past mistakes, ML being a genius etc. But I'm totally not mad at that. Firstly, because the novel itself helps to build the atmosphere on why ML in his past life chose the route he chose. Plus his own background, his vanity being fed by many and being led astray. Not to mention him being young and stupid. But then he spends so much time as a soul (thus learning a lot and what justifies his success as craftsman), he has an aim in front of him, but also time to be reminded again and again who he did injustice. Thus the overprotective nature and fear of anything happening to his A-Hen. Returning back in time does not guarantee different outcome, thus the worry.

i love the take on A-Hen, usually MCs are portrayed as small cute bunny jades that no one can refuse, but A-Hen is nowhere near pretty, cursed lines spoil his face, cripple leg makes him limp, but his heart is the heart of gold. From small things to big things like taking care of his big brother and not eating his own fill, or deciding to follow the most dangerous path only to be able to protect his brother. All these things make A-Hen really wonderful. And one should also mention his wits. Although being shunned a lot, he doesn't cower and has a sharp tongue. I love moments when he pretends to be stupid and twists the words of people even for curses to become compliments. One should learn the thick skin skill from A-Hen that's for sure.

but MC and ML are not the only pleasant characters that are interesting to follow. It is obvious that the novel will introduce more new OTPs, which i'll enjoy exploring. Especially Yuyang :) he's precious. <<less

I'll probably update this review once I finish reading the whole thing, but here are my thoughts so far!

Overall, Rebirth of the Supreme Celestial Being really captures the essence of Xianxia. You've probably heard this premise before: "Our MC Lin Xuanzhi made a huge mistake in his previous life by trusting/distrusting the wrong people, and meets a tragic end. Now the heavens have given him this one chance to do everything over from the very beginning. In particular, he resolves to protect and care for his adoptive younger brother Yan... more>> Tianhen, the person he horribly wronged in their previous life. As he uses his skills, gets revenge, and makes new friends... he also discovers hints of a larger conspiracy/destiny that he missed in his previous life. "

There's a lot to love about this novel: Satisfying character progression, cool powers and artifacts galore, heartwarming and funny character interactions, loads and loads of compelling side characters.

  • Yan Tianhen is one of my favorite characters ever. He's so cute and sharp-tongued at the same time, while also growing into a total badass.
  • None of the main characters in general are perfectly flawless; they each have their own strengths and weaknesses, which complement each other.
  • I personally really enjoyed the pacing of the story. It very much captured the classic Xianxia adventure spirit of the protagonists slowly getting stronger.
  • Many of the plot points hit my favorite tropes, especially how the plot analyzes the many sides of love: the beautiful and the ugly, the gentle and the painful. I shed tears at the stories of many of the side characters.
  • I love love loved the world building and hints of politics in this novel! Better than most other Xianxia in my opinion. It really helped show everything in a grander scale, and gave off the feeling that this is actually a living world.
  • So so many cute side pairings to cheer for!! The author does a great job balancing out Lin Xuanzhi + Yan Tianhen compared to all the other side characters.
  • And last but not least... this novel can be absolutely hilarious when it wants to be. The humor adds a touch of liveliness and even realism to these seemingly archetypal fantasy characters.
That's not to say everything is perfect though.

  • I'm going to be honest, the first 100 or so chapters dragged a bit because of the sheer deluge of 1-dimensional villainous characters. The only purpose to their existence was to get jealous of Lin Xuanzhi, try to kill him, and then get face-slapped in return. Repeat ad infinitum. Don't get me wrong, their annoying scumbaggery makes the moment when they finally get face-slapped rather cathartic. But at some point I was like "please just face-slap them already so we can get it over with and move onto actually interesting side characters."
    • Thankfully this trend mostly stops after chapter 100 or so, as the cannon fodder villains get disposed of or fade away. We get more neutral characters, frenemies, and of course wonderful friendly allies!
  • The novel does have Mpreg (not directly by the main couple, but it does play a role in the story involving side characters). It's only a tiny part of the story but it kind of came out of nowhere lol.
  • I noticed that like 99% of the characters in this novel are male, and what female characters actually exist are almost all villains. Please just give me one compelling female character. Just one.
Say what you will, I literally couldn't stop reading this novel even the night before I had an exam. It had me that hooked. <<less

You know all those light novels about cultivation and isekai novels, where the MC is in a fantasy world and is re-birthed so he has a super duper advantage and finds magical items to level up before everyone else and is OP and always stuns everyone with his power and the antagonists are super petty and always the exact same and lose cause' they underestimated the MC every single time?

That's the vibes here, except it's with BL fluff added in.

Now, of note, the MC is the Gong, and the Shou... more>> currently has a problem with his appearance/health, so these to points add at least a dash of uniqueness. Although, I assume at some point the ML will fix his all his beloved's problems. And, I always like when a character is trying to make up for a past mistakes, and on this point the synopsis says it in a nutshell. There's also the element that this genre always has, which is throwing in random magic stuff that you don't know what will be coming next, like tigers and talking magic items etc.

It reminds me a lot of Legendary Master's Wife (and look at the chapter length!) and is pretty similar in how it reads (although each chapter is notably shorter). If you like LMW I would go for it. In this case, MC is fawning and gentle on the shou, which is different than how in LMW, ML always mocks the shou.

Simple plot, simple MC always wins, irritating and brainless antagonists like rats. Overall, I personally don't like reading this sort of MC always wins because his opponents are idiots story, where much time is spent describing the next random technique or method MC is using to advance super quickly. So I think I'll safely stall this one. <<less

I usually don't write reviews, but this is definitely a hidden gem. At first it started with some cliches: MC traveled back in time, got a powerful artifact, cultivated at speeds unimaginable to everyone else, slapped some one-dimensional cannon fodders, protected the person he betrayed in his past life. I didn't go into this expecting anything more. Boy was I totally wrong. The summary does not do it justice on the depth and complexity of both the characters and the world.

The first 100 chapters or so may be cliche, but... more>> after the story gets moving, there is plenty of good plot development and character building. There's so many things to like about this story, so I'll just list them. Mild spoilers ahead.

Spoiler
  • Lin Xuanzhi and Yan Tianhen, the MC and ML, actually have very deep characters and backstories spanning three different lifetimes. What you see at first is definitely not all there is. Heck, right up until the very end I was still discovering new sides to these characters, and their love story is both gripping and heart-wrenching. It's beautiful watching each of them develop, come to terms with the events in their past lives, and move forward/grow despite of that and because of that.
  • I really admire the author for writing what seems to be simple plot armor at first but becomes fully explained later on. MC's extreme genius and skill with the sword, ML's somewhat out-of-nowhere pill-concocting skills, MC's soul plate artifact, etc., all of the usual stuff you expect from rebirth cultivation novels become actual plot, and many of these tie to a conspiracy dating back tens of thousands of years, and the twists and turns in the plot kept me in the dark until the very end without making it seem like everything was haphazardly thrown together. Pieces of the puzzle are wonderfully woven throughout the entire story. For example, MC actually toiled away for a thousand years in order to get the chance to turn back time, and even then there was still a price to be paid for messing with fate.
  • The world-building is wonderful, when they go to the Nine Worlds in the future, the politics and clans have diverse histories with well thought-out characters and not simple cannon fodders
  • All of the side character's love stories are interesting. They're so complex that you can take any one of their stories and have an entire novel based on that. I especially loved the phoenix and the corpse general (too cute).
  • Towards the end/second half of the story, the world setting slowly releases bits and pieces of MC and ML's first lifetime tens of thousands of years ago, so tragic romance, high fantasy gods and legends galore. What this novel does is first tell you about the common legends/myths of ancient times passed down throughout the generations, then bring you to the characters who actually lived those lives, and make you realize the difference between their own perspectives/feelings and what the myths say. The ones who were lauded as saints and the ones who were condemned as demons, I love how at the end of the day they're all just - human. With ups and downs, a spectrum of emotions, and trying their best amidst a huge conspiracy dating back to the ancient times (that even still affects their lives today). A conspiracy so secret where even the ones at the center of the ancient events didn't even know the full story. There is so much to uncover until the very end. Beautiful story.
  • The author explores love, especially many different love stories, in high detail. It's always very enjoyable seeing what each side character experienced, and how they finally got together. The pacing for these pairings is on-point as well, where you gradually understand a little at a time.
  • Did I mention world-building? Because the world is so varied, there's tons of paths cultivators can take. Humans, demons, plants, weapons, and even ghosts can all cultivate their own paths. Also "fate"/heaven's will plays a a big role in character's lives, and you'll see plenty of characters who are willing to deny/go against it for love (and the results).
  • At first you only focus on Lin Xuanzhi but for the second half a good portion centers around Yan Tianhen and his sassy, adorable, and badass attitude. Yan Tianhen is definitely not stupid, which becomes increasingly obvious the further you read so if you can get through the first three hundred chapters this novel really is a rare find.
  • The pacing for thee main pair's cultivation levels is well thought-out, and more importantly, eventually both become a power couple who can protect each other, so none of the "one person is obviously so much stronger" trope.

I like the plot but I really hate the interactions between the gong (MC) and shou (ML) - there are misunderstandings and selfishness. One is very possessive and the other is very stupid.. Also, the author tried to add fluff but to me it's really annoying. I wish he/she focused on the plot instead. I tried to read it up to 252 but I couldn't bear it anymore.. Maybe i'll try to read and skip annoying parts when I finish other good novel like earth is online, guardian and breaking... more>> through the clouds <<less

A typical [redacted] xianxia novel but with two genders of annoying people instead of one. Brainless cannon fodders, face slapping, etc., you know what to expect—both the good and the bad.

Some bad things:

Sometimes the author's the book's views* (Yes, the book's. I am not confusing the book's views with the characters'.) are a bit eh..? (The same beheading-happy trigger prone protagonist, double standard—looks almost hypocritical—actions, etc.)

... more>> Some saving graces:

It's BL (so romance). Has comedy. Has plot (that should already be obligatory imo).

Conclusion: it's the same [redacted] xianxia with *similar* setting/plot elements but with BL.

Recommended for people who (1) has time, (2) are not tired of [redacted] xianxias, (3) has never read xianxia with BL (this is the first one I saw) (not those transmigration novels), or (4) just like to read anything BL. Not a must-read. Could be a time passer.

*as of what I've read

/* My initial impression of it was a 3-star novel but I rated it as a 4 considering how xianxias with similar flaws get rated.... And maybe because it's BL */

EDIT: I just read something really good and cannot give this a 4 star anymore. <<less

I took some time to MTL this story up till chapter 200+ and I honestly find this story to be consistently intriguing - the background stories of the ML and MC and of course, the troubles that they run into every now and then. However, my personal favourite is actually another couple (side characters) of this story - their interaction is kinda bittersweet at first but I'm glad that they finally have their happy ending.

I would like to thank the translators/editors of this story who put on so much effort... more>> in this and make it possible for readers like me to enjoy this story. <<less

When it comes to this novel, I think the first chapter is really noteworthy to talk about. It's one of the most well written first chapters I've ever read. It really gives you a unique insight to the characters when you start out a novel by blasting readers with the MC's (Lin Xuanzhi) raw emotions and when he's at his most vulnerable during a really chaotic moment.

If you like the first chapter, then you'll definitely like the rest! ... more>>
Spoiler

It started off with a countdown from 10. After each second, the snippet is shown all the critical moments of his past life. The first snippet is dreamy, reflecting on the haziness of Lin Xuanzhi's awareness. All the following snippets take an abrupt turn, progressively getting worse until the countdown ends. Everything becomes more clear with each snippet until we are shown the obvious soreness of his current situation. He had just lost a dual and is about to get brutally slaughtered by the winner. They're surrounded by a demented crowd.... who are eager to see bloodshed.

It becomes apparent that Lin Xuanzhi has no one on his side and he's about to die.

This first chapter sets the foundation of the novel. It sets a precedent that his resolve to make things right has set him on a brutal path where he is shunned everywhere and constant face challenges at a disadvantage.

[collapse]

It may be because of how the first chapter was written, but I immediately took a liking to Lin Xuanzhi. He's very calculating tactician and maintains a stoic disposition. It's interesting for a man of his character to start off at the very bottom with very little help. He was someone who used to be worshipped on the pedestal and became the trash of society and the subject of ridicule. The growth he goes through is amazing!

He has a very progressive mindset and he's a man of vision. He is someone who goes above and beyond his goals. This novel is more than just revenge and redemption. He got into business. He made new friends.

Spoiler

He made a really bold move to completely abolished the roots of his cultivation and change to a craftsman. But this goes beyond just rebuilding his cultivation.

He even uses it to get into a lucrative trading business that opens up the opportunity to establish partnerships and good relationships with potentially important allies (I.g. Boss Feng, Lin Zhantian, Ji Yumwei, the young master of the Hiddent Tools Pavilion)

It's admirable that he did this partially to decrease his dependence on the Lin family, which gave him the freedom to follow his own path. This business enabled him to gain access to valuable resources and connect with reliable people and even gain friendships.

Duan Yuyang is so far Lin Xuanzhi's most trustworthy and important ally.

[collapse]

What I love about this novel is that even though his knowledge of the future gives him an advantage, he's not completely omnisent. He's so predictable yet unpredictable. He has a way of executing his plans in a way that take me by surprise.

Spoiler

Like how his obvious intention to thwart his enemy from buying a special magical tool by offering a unique deal that resulted in a long-term partnership with the extremely reputable and evasive Young Master of the Hidden Tools Pavilion

[collapse]

I'm only at 144 chapters through a 774 chapter novel, but it's quickly gotten really complex with the sheer number of characters and the MC's relationship with them.

The MC himself is a rather perplexing character.

1. His actions often contradict the emotions that he feels.

Spoiler

The most perplexing one was when Lin Xuanzhi chose not to punish Madam Bai when he had the chance to do so.

He made it clear how much he hated Madam Bai.

1. She ordered his food supply to be cut

2. she framed Yan Tianwen (past life)

3. She had her personal servant cut off Yan Tianwen's tongue (past life)

4. she destroyed the evidence of Wu Wang's murder case so that Lin Xuanzhi would get a sentence at the law enforcement hall

But in the end, Lin Xuanzhi pushed the blame onto her personal servant, Steward Zheng. He even went as far as to say that Madam Bai was oblivious and steward Zheng was using her as a scrape goat.

However, later on, he revealed his intention to dig up evidence of her scandals (her affair with third elder).

Lin Xuanzhi will make his move in 3 years.

[collapse]
2. He's so considerate he is towards those he view as being innocent that he willing spares those he hates

Since he's good at judging people characters, he goes out of his way to make sure that the good characters are not implicated from his quest for revenge and redemption.

Spoiler

Han Yuran - This person was the first enemy that Lin Xuanzhi identified and targeted for revenge. The MC has so far succeeded in crippling Han Yuran's power and could easily off him but hasn't done so.

He promised Yuan Tianwen that he wouldn't harm Han Yuran as long as Yuan Tianwen cares for him. He did this because he knew from the canon that Yuan Tianwen attempted to Han Yuran soon after their marriage. Yet at the same time, Lin Xuanzhi regards him to be a good character and doesn't wish implicate Yuan Tianwen's life.

Madam Bai - Out of all the decrepit people in the world, she probably the one that the MC hates the most. She is the responsible for much of the torment Yan Tianhen experienced in his early years in both his previous and current life. With the Lin family's third elder to back her up and Stewart Zhang to carry out her nefarious plans, she's a long standing threat to Lin Xuanzhi.

Lin Zhantian - the MC never seems to hate him despite being backstabbed. Instead of taking advantage of his newfound status to punish Lin Zhantian, he instead offers him a deal which may allow the MC to gain an ally that would hold the key to taking down Madam Bai.

[collapse]
Also, I love Yan Tianhen's cheekiness. He always has a way to make people speechless with his smart mouth!

Spoiler

Duan Yuyang clicked his tongue, "Really can't take any teasing, Henhen is more fun to play with after all."

Yan Tianhen nodded his head, "Bullying honest people is the best. "

Duan Yuyang "... "

Just came here to comment on one reviewer pointing out that the ML is naive.

He is naive, yes, and to some extent but don't let that fool you. He is clever and sly. He bears grudges especially when it concerns his Dage. He has a tongue as sharp as knife that'll stump you speechless. He is straightforward but also hides many things in his heart.

Although he is naive, he at least won't let himself suffer from bullies - well, he endured his Dage's mistreatment before because of the guilt of... more>> Lin Zhan's death.

But like what happened on the Spiritual Field, you dear reviewer will be one of those two taken advantage of if you underestimate a naive ML. <<less

on the plus side the interactions between the MC and ML are interesting and sometimes cute and I like the mystery behind the ML's poisoning and birth, the MCs non existent "mom" and the MC's dad's "death." now onto the bad. I normally like cultivation stories but after reading up to the latest chapter I have decided I really came to the wrong place. 1) I don't like Mpreg stories and this one has many guys popping out kids.... more>>
Spoiler

where do they grow? How do they pop out? Magic? Or do they get crapped out the back? If they come out the back then where does the kid grow and where does the pregnant person poop from? My inability to find a logical place for them insemianate a nonexistent egg through the back door, to grow a kid somewhere in the male body (which has no womb) and give birth through a nonexistent birth-can** always gets in the way and throws me out of the story. I will never understand mpreg.

[collapse]

2) I don't like stupid and naive characters.
Spoiler

that perfectly describes the ML as well as a few other side characters. The ML starts off as a 13 year old kid so there's some excuse, though other 13-15 year old kids are getting engaged and plotting the downfall of their enemies and killing people just because they're weak. I don't know if he stays dumb and naive because as of the latest chapter, he's still 13. The other stupid characters are already adults so they have no excuse.

[collapse]

3) I also dislike pointless misunderstandings and this novel has so many that it should be in the tags.

4) and I while I know other people like multiple povs, I could care less what everyone else is thinking and plotting; I'm reading this for LXZ story, not theirs.
Spoiler

this novel has a ton of side couples so it jumps to their stories now and then right in the middle of an arc, which is both messy and irritating. I like it better when the side character stories are told in the extras so I can focus on one couple at a time. And it really bothers me when the author wastes even more chapters of pov on cannon fodder villains that we will never see again.

[collapse]

my conclusion: read the tags carefully before you start (though in my defense it doesn't say Naive and Stupid ML/side characters, Misunderstandings, or Multiple POVs up there). This story isn't for me and I think giving it almost 100 chapters is giving it enough of a chance to really tell. I gave it a 3 because it has some tolerable parts to it. <<less

I like this novel. The world setting and character stories are quite interesting.

It's not your usual cliche ones, sure, there's going back in time, righting the stupid things that the MC did... As the novel continues, he gets to meet good people and finally make better friends then he did. And because of changes made as he moves, other interesting things gets to appear.

Yet when I read the final chapter, it was like a wave of disappointment crashing onto me.

... more>> Why disappointed? Cause the ending feels crappy!!!

imean, the author had such a nice beginning, he/she could have further improve on the details ~

But the ending felt like, 'damn, you're just gonna end it like that?! Wouldn't you give us a extra/ss/fanwai? To settle it? T_T...'

And so, this feeling of incompleteness made me realise glaringly that there's still certain loose ends... when I usually don't manage to notice such stuffs...

I wish we could have more about the MC and his parents. Plus because of who his unknown parent is, he got certain things ~ but the author made it useless....... imean, what's the freaking point in writing about that when it's gonna end up nil?????? Freaking upset-_-

tl;dr?

Sigh, well, it's not bad, just that the ending and loose ends could have been better. <<less

I like this novel. The story is complex and there were multiple layers to the MC and ML's story lines that kept me interested.

The ending was a bit abrupt though. But that's forgivable compared to the rest of the story.

It's worth a read if you are into long novels.
