This story was fairly interesting for some time but MC is just too unlikable for me. He is pretty likeable at the start and then becomes worse and worse. Zero friends or love interests or any sort of friendly face really. World seems interesting but characters are extremely bland and 2 dimensional. Anyone who thinks humans would become like this is insane in the head

His mother and father are both strong points of motivation for him and yet his mother doesn't have a name and is introduced as mom of... more>> MC

I really want to like this novel but there isn't much to like <<less

I really like the MC of this one. It is one of those novels that really attached me to the character. For those saying that he has a horrible character because he walks the path of slaughter, you are just all wrong. He became a mass murderer because the first time he spared someone, it costs the lives of everyone from his clan. Then he knows that if you have a kind heart in their world, you will be the one that will be killed. Then sh*t happens.


One of the greatest!!

One of best character growth I have seen in a novel, the transition from a naive/foolish young boy into an adult man is well done.

... more>>

The MC transition from a naive boy into a mass murderer sociopath.


The world building, story development and plot transition are nearly perfect.

The only downside are:


The world is just too dark for me, and MC is just a psychopath. (ATG's MC can be considered a saint compared to Wang Lin)



I haven't finished the novel, but the romance is......... might as well consider the novel doesn't contain romance

It's a very unique story... but one of the finest!! Non-stop thrills and chills in this one. The character, story development, pacing is just perfect. None of those copy paste scenarios unlike other novels where you go through the same plot & dialogues again and again. Er Gen is simply the best! You've basically an MC who's brought up into a cruel ruthless world where he's just trying to survive and live in peace. His character's more like an assasin cold, dark n gloomy yet with a warm heart.

No... more>> it's not a harem story. Just a simply love story.

The only downside is despite the translator doing a good job it has UNSTABLE releases.... someone else needs to pick this novel or help him out to translate before more readers start dropping it out of frustration.

P.S- Worth it

Yes, I dropped the series quickly. Although it wasn't because of any realism problems or anything like that. It's because every page of the book was depressing. I thought the writing seemed pretty good for an Asian novel. I seriously couldn't stand how drawn out and depressing the opening was. Chapter after chapter of this horrible downward spiral where the protagonist gets his dreams trampled on over and over. For the first fifteen chapters at least, EVERYTHING turns out as depressing as it can possibly be. The fact that telling... more>> you that spoils the first half of the first book should make you reconsider reading this. When the answer to every question is the same, you can't help but blame the author. <<less

Reviewed at Chapter 154

What attracted me to this webnovel initially was the dark MC. At the start he was genuinely untalented, someone who uses his brain
... more>>

at the start anyway. Gotta say his morals go screwed up we got past the 70s.

Even when he first gets that mystical bead he doesn't immediately power up like many MCs of other webnovels. His hard work still puts him at the bottom of the hierarchy.

So the first 70 chapters or so were great. I quite liked the writing style and pace. I tried not to think too much about the whole

'you killed my talented great great grandson even though he was going against the town rules enforced by his own family, so I'll just go and massacre your family.'

revenge logic. I liked how MC is not an evil-only-because-I'm-misunderstood character but his morals really do get skewed. It's refreshing.

What I didn't like was that even though MC was powering up, cultivating, going on adventures and seemingly working towards revenge which honestly is only present when we're reminded through a specific sentence or two after tens of chapters, the goals felt so insignificant. Is his long-term goal really long term? I didn't feel or understand how badly he wanted to achieve some things. I think that's mainly due to the lack of emotional description. There's more explanation than description for sure. Romance is basically non-existent.

I'll push through with this novel since I'm still slightly curious of where the MC is headed but it's probably something I'll also read on and off. I just need to remind myself not to question motives and reasons. It's survival of the fittest in the world of Xian Ni. <<less

All of all the novels, I have read, this one is possibly one of my favourites. You know, I usually like stories with op mcs, this however, was kind of a different tatse. The protagonist isn't op from the very start, from what I have heard, he slowly gets op instead. This usually bothered me, but somehow, this novel managed to avoid that feeling. It slowly builds up the story, it even took quite a while for him to reach the first level of cultivation, somehow, I didn't stop reading... more>> and continued on. I like it, so far. <<less

Hesy There...

I am new here as a novel reader, so I dont have so much understanding about novel I only had read a few novel like MGA, PMG and of course all novel from Er Gen (RI, ISSTH, PotT, and AWE)..

Actually Renegade Immortal is the First novel I read, it started when I over-curiosity about the story of the its Manhua (arc. when Wang Lin got Killed by that old Teng Hua), so I search in google and found that it actually adopted from Novel...

so, since then I keep update... more>> reading RI until I meet last chapter. so, I also began to read one of Er Gen novel (ISSTH) wich was complete on wuxia..

So, about RI I cant really determine its the best novel ever.. but as a beginner of novel reader I really love RI (include all Er Gen Novel).. its just amazing on how PLOT and SCHEME are brilliant, how we never get boring on the Story-Line, and how from beginning til now we keep our heart skip a bit of how our MC keep struggle on his path of cultivation.. its really wonderful and great story to keep us reader curios of what would happen next.... But sometime I rather pity for our MC. He keep fight and struggle for his safety and his path for cultivation.. but there is almost never he feel how wondrous its feeling for have a piece day with his beloved Wan'er.. once he reunite with Wan'er she already dying.. I even cant hold my tear drop-down on that arc...

Hope he will meet his happiness later on.

Renegade Immortal is in its essence a true cultivation story. It is unlike your typical xianxia where the MC is just an idiot who becomes the strongest through some dumb luck. Everyone in this world is cunning, brutal, and cruel in their own way that displays what would indeed be a realistic cultivation world. And the growth of the MC who is thrown into this world, as he changes and adapts so he can become strong, taking risks to defy the heavens, can be really exciting and sometimes almost heart-wrenching.... more>> All in all, great novel, I really recommend this to anyone whether they are a veteran or a person who never read xianxia novels before.

As always, Er Gen's novel always keep me intrigued and help me get up in the morning or stay up at night waiting for releases no matter which of his novels, including Renegade Immortal! Although it is much more serious compared to his other novels being translated at WuxiaWorld, it does a fantastic job at bringing in readers, keeping them in suspense during fights and plot developments, and has some of the best cultivator to mortal arcs I've ever read... period.

Like every Er Gen novel RI takes time to build up story, character and pace, however once everything is set and ready to go, you are in for a ride. The momentum keeps on building and it only gets better and better. Wang Lin (MC) ’s character is the best out of like 50+ webnovels I have read so far-cold, calculating, decisive and scheming. Every new chapter just makes the story better and I was never once disappointed. The only thought after everytime I read renegade immortal is, “ MORE,... more>> MORE, MORE!!!” <<less

Whew, it really has been a Long run, since reading this novel years back, those whom still remember, in the pass Renegade only posts twice per week on Saturday and Sunday, Luke and Rex both tackle the novel themselves, time files! But let’s get on with it! So far the at the point where I read, the world is so huge, there is so many things that could occur that leaves my imagination to run wild! I really recommend anyone who is reading this now, to give it a try... more>> and don’t give up early in the story, sometimes it might confuse or frustrate you, but just continue and you will be amazed. One of my best takeaway I love regarding this novel is how the author doesn’t forget the past issues that have been left hanging, it give me a feeling that the author kept in mind the whole picture, and doesn’t leave holes in the story. Well, it is my most favourite story I follow nowadays! Good job Rex!

This is by far the best novel I've read, I still remember wang lin when he climb that mountain, so he can get into heng yue sect, and he met his friends, killed teng something, gets his family killed, and so on...

His life is not the same as generic MC, where MC almost always win against enemy, I would say his life is a traedy, heck I even cried when he was talking to his brother (this happens in recent chapter) about his life, about what could he get if he didn't cultivate up till now, about what is he chasing by cultivate, about how he lost every single f**kin things that matters to him. Er gen is really good at touching our hearts. I can't make a long review cause I'm on my phone rn, but I realllllyyy recommend this novel.

Well, so far, this novel hold #1 position among CN i've read. Er Gen surely put a lot of effort making this.. #2 is MoE/MEN, the third comes to DH..

In early series, there are some clues/parts that seems missing, but who knows, Er Gen actually reveals it after long time passed.. The most interesting point for me is the development is reasonable, cultivation world basic principal doesn't swayed from start till now, the same goes to characters building.. Unlike some other novel..

well, I could say that the only thing that... more>> frustrating is the updates.

At early c500, I rated 3/5, because subjective reviews toward the MC's character, but nah, that was too childish.. People doesn't want to read this because they want to have baby-milking protagonist that always got lucky, overpower, oversh*t and a hero that can always save the day, that can have anything he want.. They can't stand a MC that only want to survive, simple man with simple dream, having desire of vengeance & survive, an everyday man, sometimes lost sometimes win.. Just like in reality.. Rated 5.0 for now.

And, for the romance tag, even it's only a sliver, it's still there.. <<less

Reading this novel is like climbing a tall mountain...

Exhiliarating along the way, Interesting while moving forwards... But like a sh*tty steep cliff going up once the story falls from its plot.

My Cons for Xian Ni:

I hate the fact that the writer rushes some scenarios. There are instances where the author could've added a little more scenes (and it would've been fine). There were a lot of open pages (which were fine being left out) but would've made the story packed and full. (I guess the author is trying not to... more>> stay generic, and is saving some plots as reserves)

Once the story gets generic and uninteresting, it's hard to comeback. I had instances where I would like to drop the novel (I would suggest to find an alternative to switch back and forth once this happens).

It's all about the Treasures. Treasure this, treasure that. Don't they have an alternarive term for their stuffs?... like, STUFF?...

My Pros:

This is the only novel where the MC gets killed AF. I know this may sound messed up, but think about it, but I think this was a smart move by the author. The MC got a chance to start over or recuperate from a weak state. And the story had an oportunity to shift and evolve from one theme to another. This makes the story interesting over and over.

I hope to read books as versatile as this. I thank the author and the translator. <<less

To be honest, I skipped a lot of chapters especially the first few parts as I got bored with it and some of it are really unnecessary for you to understand the flow of the story. I was actually about to give up with this but I didn't know the turning point chapter where I started to get interested but seriously things got a lot of better you just have to be patient. I really love the MC Wang Lin because for me he is kind of different in a... more>> good way from most of the mc's of the novels I read. Especially when it comes to the romance part, as Wang Lin is deeply allergic to 99.9% of the girls in the story. Lol. But this is what makes the story unique for me. This is also one of the few novels that actually made me cry so its not like any other storylines that just focuses on increasing strength, having lots of enemies while still weak then come back for revenge, harems and so much more. So it is a highly recommended novel to anyone who wants something different. <<less

One of the better novels out there. The story is MC focused, the side characters give a proper amount of dialogue and not that kind of trash fill-an-entire-chapter kind of dialogue, the story is unique, the MC has intelligence and somewhat of a likable personality. The only downside is that this is one of those stories that has the MC plainly killing because someone insulted him; It seems like the story will go down the same path as ISSTH with just OP hero and MC killing people who insult him... more>> though. <<less

its alright. My only problem is the author keeps crushing his cultivation and we have togo through the same drivel again. The exception being, he changes it up a little so that MC will get a treasure item or some minor technique to help him along immediate future crisis. At time story gets overly dramatic with some weak attempt at poetry. This is also lightly tied to advance cultivation techniques where you have to understand a domain

... more>>

they have to understand the Dao of their heart and heavens. So like MC is faced a lot of life and death situations so he's trying to to comprehend that in relation to universal (heaven) laws.

But it comes out as tacky to me. There is no huge philosophical depth to it. Author should probably stick to making sick as armors weapons and anything of that nature. <<less

Basically, this is a dark/tragedy xanxia story so far, where the MC becomes more twisted as the story progresses due to a stream of failures. There is 0 romance, there is 0 humor. I've read some of Er Gen's later works, and they are frankly much better, though this isn't terrible, it is very dry and the MC isn't likable at all, the world building is also really fragmented, there is a great deal of "teleporting" to destinations and poor descriptions of them. I'd give it a solid 3... more>> since it is still well written despite these major flaws. Perhaps it gets better later. <<less

This novel has lots of terms, and it’s like reading a dictionary for cultivation and alchemy. It is slow with all the explaining and description, causing you to lose sight of what is currently happening in the novel, but it does gives you an deep insight of its world and its rules. This novel isn’t for everyone and you have to be very patient to enjoy this novel.

The romance doesn’t start until mid or late 100s (since I lost track) but it’s very subtle, and the way is done is... more>> not exactly what you would expect. Well they start acknowledging it until they meet again in 211 I believe. Honestly, it such a small part of the story that the romance tag can be neglected or remove. <<less
