Got caught up with the raws and so far I am really liking this novel. There are a lot of small things that are done differently compared to other novels which is a nice touch even though it is not anything major.

The male and female lead are both likable. There have been a few side characters that have been introduced but they have not had much development but the story is still early on so plenty of time for that. The female lead/main love interest is pretty well developed and... more>> the romance is a nice breath of fresh air in my opinion there is no pu**y footing around they do fall in love pretty fast but it isnt done in a horrible way.

The world building so far has been fine but nothing amazing hope it gets better later on.

The translations are very good and the updates are very stable so gj CKtalon keep up the great work.

Overall I very much enjoy IET new novel and would recommend people to give it a try. I personally would read about 150 chapters before deciding to drop it or keep reading. <<less

It's a very good novel when compared to other mainstream Chinese novels. The MC isn't OP in the beginning but has a legit reason for revenge which drives him and his hard work is clearly mentioned, no lucky encounters yet. Translation is really good as well.

First of all, the translator now is CKtalon who also translate TMW, so surely the translation quality is pretty good.

Now for the story we have our mc: Qin Yun, who is a wandering cultivator that just returning home after 6 years travelling. He has pretty amazing quality for MC, as he isnt naive and shameless, protective to his friend and family, and ruthless to his enemy, including those courting death young masters.

Its just the beginning of the novel after all. But I must say I am really entertained by this... more>> novel. This novel has a good plot and not just faceslapping story. It just as good as other IET novels.

So I encourage you to just read this novel and dont listen to those qidian haters. <<less

I am really disappointed. IET is a very well known and experienced writer but this novel is way below his level. The writing quality is excellent but the delivery and the plot is really poor. Readers have to follow an unknown guy trying to revenge his sister while sometimes trying to help some unknown friends. Why should us, readers, care about or get excited and continue reading about this MC ? I didn’t feel any attachment to the MC or any other characters. I really couldn’t get into the story... more>> because the start point of the story and the way the author delivered the story are really really poor and annoying, which was unexpected from an experienced author. <<less

When I read the two chapters I thought that this seemed like combination of Coiling Dragon and Desolate Era but it seems this is sequel to Stellar Transformation (not sure if its direct sequel or or just same universe..

Still the beginning seems interesting as the MC is decently strong at the start. Will update this when more of the world and cultivation is revealed.

I was not disappointed, but then again I also don't stay waiting up for Santa anymore.

This is more of the same from IET;nothing more, nothing less. And at this point it is pretty obvious to anyone that IET is churning out these novels at about the same rate and quality of a McDonald's meal.

I do have a problem feeling any sort of connection to the characters like some of the others have stated. That said, the main problem I'm having is that like many of IET's other novels the MC... more>> always seems to able to power up just when he needs to. Defeating one antagonist means nothing because there's one more right around the corner who will do something way out of character and eventually be taken out mostly because of his own stupidity.


The new governor actually went and made himself an enemy of a guy who spent 3 years on the front lines AND just finished killing a monster who had terrorized their territory for 200 years. Still, I guess it was worth risking his cover (he works with/for the evil monsters) so that he can get some cultivation item


Wait until the chapters pile up, don't think too much and enjoy. <<less

First of all I would like to say that the people reading this novel should not make assumptions that quick. I'm getting really tired of people dismissing the fact that the author left his backstory a bit vauge. For all we know they may be a reason that he left it like that as we are only nearing 100 chapters currently. And also for that person saying the MC had no motive for what he did.

... more>>

He helped the childhood friend because she was the younger sister of a friend that he cared about. He just wanted the best for her. As for helping the governor, he did that because the governor offered an item that can help him refine his weapon easier. For the girl, the water god was the one who killed his sister and he already planned to kill the water god anyway, but decided to help because the water god may break through anytime.


Seriously read the novel correctly before you make assumptions, or I will just view you as an idiot that can only make stupid reasons to hate something. <<less

I think the best thing I can say about this novel so far is that it didn't just shove everything about the MC down your throat and we didn't have to go through yet another nobody to somebody story.

Over the first few dozen chapters we slowly get a feel for who the MC is and what his motivations are. In this we are able to start off with an already strong MC just a few steps away from entering the realm that most people would consider strong. And after learning... more>> his motivations after 50 or so chapters it puts new light on past actions.


When we find out about his sister being eaten by that water sh*tty and his entire reason for relentlessly perusing cultivation being to kill he water god. This also puts a new light on some of the things he did like slaughtering all the demons who targeted his brother and going far it out of his way help his old friends sister (his sister substitute)


All in all its an enjoyable read so far but with only 50 chapters and the MC main goal being removed soon who knows what he future will hold. <<less

Ah this novel is so disapoting I wanted a Coling Dragon but got a sh*ty Xue Ying version in this one I don't get why master tomato keep going on this direction.

First of all the novel start with a 22 years old MC returning home, we don't know anything about him so we can only learn about his past, cultivation and goals after 40 chapters in a very lazy way.

The problem of not showing his grown like in CD is because when we meet say a friend or a love... more>> interest we just don't care about them because IET only said they are old pals, no flashback or anything and even his goal of revenge for his little sister was just shove in there for convinince. At no point at all the MC said why he wanted to be a cultivator only when he need to fight the person he wanted revenge upon did we learn about his sister so its almost impossible to care about it.

Also the best part of the novel was when the MC decide to just go to a battlefield and breakthout or die agaisnt a horde of monsters the problem is IET never wrote about that past one line so we miss that too.

But the worst part is the MC doesn't look to be the one making the choices in what to do he acts like somebody devivery boy working for his chieldhood friend when she didn't ask, risking his life for a greed governant and now helping a naive female cultivator. Sure the MC does have reasons to help them but alwasy looks like it wasn't worth the troble and he took a lost, unlike in CD when the MC help his friends but since you buy there frienship it never looks like it's not worth even when the MC must face soverings to help his friend unlike here. <<less

Based on the first 50 chapters or so, I think this story is a notch above many of IET's other works, showing a maturity in storytelling and plot that really isn't apparent (in my opinion) in many of his earlier novels. The main character starts as an adult and as a skilled martial practitioner, thus avoiding some of the 'cultivation wank' that goes on in the first 100 chapters of many other novels & getting right to the meat of the plot. Also, Flying Sword Path is just plain stylish... more>> - it draws on very classic wuxia tropes and gives them a daoist spin, rather than being a daoist novel first and foremost. People sacrifice themselves nobly for loved ones, other people have tragic pasts, villains are cruel and rapacious and are not as quickly mown down as some xianxia villains are... I'm definitely curious to see how this story develops and hope that it continues to hold true to its early promise! <<less

Seems sorta similar to IET's other novels (really epic/fresh at the start, not sure about later).

lol the MC's name reminds me of Qin Yu from Stellar Transformations. *Wiggles eyebrows*

Sure, the MC is OP, but he isn't GOD level yet. Just around his dinky little area he's OP. He doesn't have much variety (sword immortal) but the other characters seem to have various talents.

... more>> As usual, MC helps his family and girls.

I find it different that the story starts a while after MC starts cultivating. That's pretty cool. The MC also doesn't seem to be absolutely stupid, so I'm good.

Haven't seen any absolutely awesome (alive) male characters for the MC to buddy with. <<less
