i don't know why it seems no one like this ?, probably had something to do with translator? Worm and gu that get fixed in later chapter which if you're atleast use abit of your brain you use your own understanding, but I personally really like this story, you can actually see how character growth and the world around him change with it, a mix of cultivation and modern day strength from poor to rich with a sprinkle amount of romance (non platonic) ? And complex relationship and a bit... more>> of drama, it's all in a bowl of heartwarming soup the main character made (you'll get the reference)

not convincing enough for you to read?

Meanwhile the mysterious cultivator or sect and organization around him seems to be shrouded in mystery

MC become quite likeable later, but whether all those power will corrupt him? Guess we'll find out

Spoiler

USA&world as a whole not only china

[collapse]
, so there's really no young master want you dead, because you accidentally look at him and his whole family trope get repeated throughout the novel, maybe a bit at the start. And once you get past the awkward beginning, you can't stop reading. <<less

The translation is very confusing at times and often uses words that have completely different meanings from what is intended. For example, not a single worm has appeared twenty chapters into the series. Instead, there have only been things like lizards, snakes, and centipedes, which are definitely not considered "worms" in English. One reader commented that the translation is supposed to be something like Gu, which is prominent in Asian horror novels involving evil magic creepy-crawlies and would make more sense than "worm." Another confusing detail is when a broken... more>> limb gets mixed up with an flesh wound or an amputation. A broken arm is much less of a problem than an amputated one, and these are two very different meanings in English. That said, it is possible to figure out what the translation was probably supposed to say.

When I first chose to read this novel, I expected to see an MC who died with worms crawling over his body before he revives as an undead lich or something. Thus far, there are no worms, and the MC is very much alive. I assume the "worm" part of the title is a translation error, but I don't know if the "lich" part of the title means that the MC will die and come back as a lich later on or if this is also a translation error.

The story development is confusing, which doesn't help the odd translations. It picks up after the first ten or so chapters. The logic is skewed all over the place as far as characters and development go, but part of that could be a cultural thing.

The culture is very interesting to read about and is the only reason I am still reading this series. I'm not sure how long it will keep my attention, but that is the only reason I have chosen to read so many chapters.

The MC isn't likeable so far and hasn't shown much depth. He has shown some development, so hopefully that will continue to be interesting. A cop has played a prominent role so far, but he is basing his judgement of guilt or innocence purely on his gut instinct and not evidence. There are cases I've read about where an officer has forged evidence because he "knew" the suspects were guilty, but they were proven innocent later. Naturally, the officer in question went to prison. The cop in this story is like that, and he's incredibly annoying and sullying the name of investigation. Then again, this is China, so I'm not sure if they prefer following feeling over reason as part of their legal system, unlike the one in my country. Otherwise, none of the side characters have been particularly likeable or worthy of attention.

Although the cultural details are interesting, there isn't much information about the world background itself. The storytelling is messy at best, and there's no clear summary regarding "wizards, " who are more like evil sorcerers or witches in this setting. I'm not sure if any clarification will be added later. So far, there has only been a detail dropped in once every several chapters, so the system of magic or voodoo or using familiars or whatever exactly is supposed to be going on here doesn't leave any basis for the reader to understand it. <<less

It's a modern-day cultivation story where the protagonist uses Gu magic. The translator uses the word 'worm' for Wug (pests or vermin). It isn't really accurate, but whatever.

The story is a resounding 'meh' at best. The main character hasn't shown any outstanding qualities other than not being an evil murderer. It seems like the author is planning on writing about a large number of non-Chinese characters, but luckily they don't seem to be racist like many Chinese authors. Unfortunately, the characters are kind of bland. The author does seem to... more>> enjoy talking about politics and specific aspects of culture, but the awkwardness that comes from the translation and a large number of Chinese terms and place names makes it difficult to understand.

Aside from the unique power set, nothing really stands out about the story. It's hard to understand and talks about stuff that it does a bad job in trying to make you interested in. <<less
