I read the manhua of this novel a few years ago and it was very good but it only had about 44 chapters and stoped after that. It was very regretful for such nice plot to go unfinished.

Now its novel is being translated, I am very excited about it.

Most people either love this novel or hate it. So give it a try to see which category you fall under.

I recommend reading the manhua first as the story has progressed further than the translated part of the novel and the manhua... more>> is very well drawn. <<less

I couldn't agree with MondoX. I think we should read the novel to know what happens next. The comment is really inappropriate because he commented his thoughts based on the first chapter. Will you know what happens to the story just by reading the synopsis? No.

This novels feels like a story from ancient times. Good fantasy with a bit of comedy. If you are into overpowered protagonists this might be good for you. The thing that is making me sad is it wasn't updated regularly.

I loved the Manga version now I'm waiting for the novel to update... the Manga left me hanging.... anyway this novel is in its own way unique and I hope it updates. I can't really describe how I feel about it, but there are people who may give a low score because of the way it's written, while others will like the style. I personally like it though. Sorry if this was of absolutely no help. -_- I'll try improving it later.

I don't usually write reviews but I got pissed seeing a bad review from someone who gives their opinion based on just chapter 1. I've read the manhwa and it disappointed me to see it get axed. So I was really happy to see fudge translate the novel. As someone who has read the manhwa as well as most of the translated chapters of the novel, I can assure you that the MC does not lose his memory or stop thinking about those who sacrificed themselves for him. He's not... more>> the type of MC who'd go and hit his uncle right away and the story does not focus on instant revenge. Maybe some people won't like his approach, but that doesn't make him a sissy. He's definitely one of the ballsiest MC I've seen. He's quite OP and gives a beating to those who deserve it. And he's clever and ambitious to boot. The story isn't solely focused on the MC. The world of martial arts and fights between clans is shown in an interesting way. Some of the side characters are shown in an interesting way. Maybe I'm being a bit partial since I like this series a lot. But for those of you who are curious about the story and can't wait for the slow translations, I'd recommend reading the manhwa. It has 44 chapters and was axed suddenly. But the manhwa artist follows the story of the novel quite accurately. The story of the manhwa probably covers up to volume 4/5 of the novel. I'm not too sure about that. Anyway, this is my first review, and it turned into more of a rant than a review. And to MondoX, please read further ahead before dissing the novel. If you still don't like it then I won't complain. After all, we all have our own tastes. <<less

The MC made me drop the series from the beginning. I thought the series was going to be like “Swallowing the Heavens, ” (STH) where the MC want to get revenge and take back what was rightfully his. That is not the case, at least from reading the 1st chapter. The MC found two power servant loyal to the rightfully heir of the throne, and promised the MC to place him back on the throne. However, the MC chooses to have his memory erased and his appearance changed. The MC... more>> had his throne taken at the age of 20, people died to protect his life and he wants to forget? Wu Yu from STH, was set-up, his own people sneered him, he was left crippled and an attempt at his life was plotted at the age of 14. With no one to depend on, he still wanted to take his throne back. But, not this MC, which I have no respect for, add to the fact three days after he escaped with his life, he and the other two servants where seriously debating for half a chapter what appearance he wanted to decide on. The next two chapters focused on the process of attempting to erase his memories and appearance. I could not continue after that, I guess that is why there is no REVENGE tag. <<less
