After an explosion, You XiaoMo finds that he is now a probationary disciple of the TianXin sect. However, he is one with dubious potential, so just when he starts to adapt to his new circumstances, he receives a piece of bad news. If he is unable to produce the required result after half a year to become an official disciple of the TianXin sect, he would be driven out of the sect.

While You XiaoMo is going all out to make medicines and earn money, he runs into Ling Xiao. To his horror, he later discovers that Ling Xiao is actually someone cloaked in human skin.

Love this novel! Especially the couple and their teasing~ Another would be how they gang up against other with their sharp and poisonous words making others unable to refute back (lol).

If you’re looking for a amazing plot or great side characters you’re in the wrong place!
Despite being 731 chapters, this novel isn’t anything groundbreaking or special with its plot or character development. The only characters that really get developed is our two main characters and the plot is fairly straightforward. The ending is a bit rushed and many things are predictable.

That being said though, I still gave this novel a 5 star because it was somewhat of a unique experience for me. There’s nothing really angsty in this novel... more>> so compared to what I usually read, this is sorta lighthearted and a fresh breathe of air. It wasn’t amazing but it was entertaining enough for me to read all 731 chapters.
I would consider this novel a guilty pleasure because it has the same depth and complexity as your average Isekai anime.
If you’re just looking for something to read out of boredom I would 100% reccomend. <<less

I had so many problems with this novel. Soooo many. But I was still entertained enough to read the whole thing... So 3 stars.

This novel features:

    • Economics that would make any community bankrupt in a day. I'm willing to bet actual money that the author flunked math at least twice.
    • The MC looked like a girl and acted like a damsel in distress and the other girls treated him like a love rival and not a man.
    • Some VERY dubious consent.
    • Next to no decent female characters. In the whole 700+ chapters.
    • Not enough romance. And no, s*x does not equal romance.
    • Drastic overuse of the phrase "not too long, but also not too short".
    • SO MANY plot holes! All over the place!
    • No intelligent characters. But I guess an author is confined to the limits of their own intellect...
    • Characters just randomly changing a lot (example - at first the MC is described as someone who doesn't care about food, but then later randomly becomes a glutton with binge eating tendencies.)
But it was funny, I guess.

After over 700 chapters, there's a lot to be said about this novel, so I'll break it simply into what I like and didn't

Liked:

    1. The protagonist. This story is a true weak to strong, like a battle shounen. The MC works hard and makes his way up the totem poll based on skill, talent and, of course, extreme luck. He is also extremely sassy and hilarious. The ML is also provides top tier wit, mostly in response to You XiaoMo.
    1. The romance. Though Ling Xiao (the... more>> ML) doesn't appear for many chapters initially, the romance develops pretty swiftly thereafter and they are together as a couple for the majority of the book, being together for many years by the end. Ling Xiao constantly teases/bullies You XiaoMo, but he is very protective and shows his affection in other ways (mainly s*x haha). There are no misunderstandings or relationship drama between the two.
    1. ADVENTURE. This story is massive in scale, there is travel over continents and realms, magical beasts, item creation, fights, cultivation. There are also a whole lot of characters that are introduced over time, along with many rivals.
Didn't Like:

    1. Misogyny. Seriously, there's a lot of it. 9/10 women are evil in a one dimensional way, and there are a tonne of sexist comments made in the narration, the MC even told one woman to get raped! I had to pause reading for a bit after that. Luckily, there are not many women in the first place.
2. The romance (sometimes). Rather small point here, but I was hoping for more tender moments from Ling Xiao (ML) by the end. He clearly loves the MC dearly, but I wish we could have had a truly soft moment from him once or twice, but he mostly just teases (bullies) the MC one-sidedly. Further, I don't like when writers write as if only the top/seme can enjoy or initiate sex. You XiaoMo is tsundere-esque so it's implied that he likes it, despite the protests, but it would still be nice to read a scene that doesn't involve him being scared/annoyed/upset over having sex.

3. The last third. While the ending was conclusive and HE, the last third or so of the book degenerated. It wasn't awful by any means, but the last 100 or so chapters were mostly broad narration with very little dialogue and choppy scenes, quite contrary to the earlier novel which sometimes had excessive description. Though most things were wrapped up, there were still some minor points that, if fleshed out, would have greatly improved the ending and how we saw the characters' arcs before sending them off. This is especially true for the secondary characters, some of which we had just met or learned about fully, and some of which we had known for a long time before they disappeared during the last half (the Qiu team) :).

Overall, a very enjoyable read that I would recommend, but it started a bit slow, and ended a bit fast. <<less

Wow... that was a really long novel, and it keeps going!

I thought that I would never be able to read it to the end but yeah, I did it. I must say, however, that I had to stop it, time to time for several weeks because I was getting bored. Don't get me wrong, it really is an incredible novel, it's just that with very long fic, I tend to be lazy Haha...

But, the characters are really funny and you don't really have to know much about cultivation world because... more>> practically everything is explained. Mostly...

But I recommend this novel. Just, you must have a strong mind to finish all the 650 chapters, ahaha! <<less

Slowburn.

Spoiler

Finally they did it at chapter *** nsfw. Yes!! (I am happy). Sorry. It's because it took so long for them to get together. Very very very long.

But...I am drawn by the story. At first you will find it boring (endured it). But it is not boring, it will be more and more interesting to read in every upcoming chapters.

I love the Qiu team of fantastic beasts lol

Thank you for both translator team. You did great *two thumbs up*

This story is a "bang"! The author is really good in separating the genres of the story. Blending of the events seems really natural and not to forget that although Ling Xiao seems to be more in the limelight, You XiaoMo do also have his. This couple really is the best. They even overwhelmed the position of the best love team in my novel list. Hihihi. I didn't expect to read a very long Yaoi novel and never get bored with it. Amazing.

I've been reading this forever and just decided to write a review.

Our MC is You XiaoMo, or YXM as readers have simplified, who died and wakes up in the body of someone in a different world. The body's previous owner is a pill cultivating disciple of some sect who cried himself to death because of his poor talent in pill cultivation, which is based on soul force. But that was the previous body's soul, what about YXM's? At the same time, he discovers that martial student Ling Xiao is actually... more>> not human, and LX threatens YXM into making him pills to eat in return for not killing him for knowing his secret.

So what ensues is an interesting xuanhuan that isn't solely focused on romance and sex. YXM focuses on pill cultivation and LX is... there. Though there isn't much intense drama in terms of who is going to win a fight, it's still fun learning about the world that YXM has ended up in through his interactions and reactions with LX.

While this is yaoi bl, it's not really super sexual except for a few chapters about 100+ chapters in. Otherwise, it's just mildly bromantic. <<less

I want to give this a 1 star now.

To be fair, I really liked it at the beginning, the world-building really intrigued me due to how solid it was. Practitioners? Mages? Alchemy? Cultivation? It was an interesting idea that really pulled me into this novel's world.

However, everything else in the novel was very lacking.

The supporting characters were bland and felt like carbon copies of each other- they only appeared when they were convenient and most of them were easily forgotten. If a somewhat interesting character appeared, they would most likely... more>> never appear again since the author likes to forget about side characters. I also didn't like how most of the females were written- none of them were solid nor memorable. There's also blatant sexism in the novel. Most of the characters overall were very unlikeable and felt like they would belong in the author's recycling bin.

The main couple wasn't any bit romantic, it was very s*x driven and about quenching the ML's lust, which was offsetting and annoying to me. I also found the ML quite abusive, and there was a lot of moments where I was very uncomfortable.

There is absolutely no character development (unless you want to count leveling up as 'development'), the MC is good at everything, the ML is good at everything - this was established at the beginning of the novel. The entire read felt like I was watching a b-rated shounen anime- the main characters continue to become more and more powerful, there was absolutely no excitement that came with it. It was very repetitive, especially with battles. The MC/ML would always win, outdo themselves, impress the crowd, etc.

If you only care for the s*x or/and OP characters and wouldn't care about side characters, an exciting plot, actual romance, lack of development, etc., I guess you would like this. <<less

The plot is all over the place. So many loose ends.......

All the jokes about the MC's IQ got old really fast. Does the ML love the MC? Yes, no doubt. Does it mean its OK that ML constantly jokes about the MC's intellect? No, its not. Also, doesn't it say something about the ML if he loved an "idiot" ? huh.

The plot is similar to many Josei genre novels out there. You know the ones with 10000+ chapters.....

But still a decent read. Don't expect too much logic or consistency and... more>> you'll be fine. <<less

Fun read, very adventurous. Just enough fluff, not enough eroge. I heard the extras were really good but I found it very lacking. The author could have explored so much more interesting things but instead we got a pretty random story.

I dont mind the teasing/bullying that people complain about Ling Xiao. My real gripe wih him was that he doesn't grow that much as a character.

Momo is great, but I was very dissapointed by how he treated some characters due to jealousy. The way he grew was necessary in a... more>> world like this one but not the way that you treat others due to your own insecurities.

I wanted to know more about LX`s dad and his "mom". MPreg possibilities for LX & Momo... HELLO that would have been an amazing extra to write about dear author xD <<less

The story is pretty good and interesting. Mc's transition from weak to strong was believable and deserved. The world building is amazing, compared to other novels. The side-characters also have their own personalities and quirks, even if it sadly lacks female representation. Most villains are meh, but some are cool.

Spoiler

I just wished we had more than the main cp throughout the story as main characters or even just important recurring characters that aren't also mc's beasts. Each arc cycles through new characters and at some point I don't care about new characters anymore. I feel like the story could have benefitted in one or a couple more characters who grow weak to strong as a foil to the main cp, they don't even have to be enemies and could have just been their companions (not including beasts) who would hopefully be as cool and strong as the main cp, just anything to break away from the MC and ml.

[collapse]

Because

Spoiler

MC and ML are the worst parts in an otherwise good story.

Like some have already said, ML is very rigid in the sense that we never see him grow or change as a character in these hundreds of chapters. He has no flaws and no weakness, and aside from his goal and his love for MC, we never truly understand or relate to him. His character amounts to a stereotypical overbearing op male lead. That's it. That's the only thing I learned of him in all these chapters.

MC isn't any better. While his growth in power is one of the selling points of the story, his growth in character is one of its downfalls. At times he's so irritating because of his selfishness and self-serving personality common to wuxia mcs. These MCs steal and cheat and aggravate others to get what they want and is celebrated as good and amazing and powerful. MC is definitely like this, and backed up by the ml, too. The characters who try to do the same to him (as MC does to others) are evil and scum. The way this story portrays MC is with a self-centered morality where whatever MC does is good and whatever others do is bad.

Then of course, his characterization derails when he's with the ml. While their romance is a good kind of slow burn, it has made them into a farce of themselves. MC turns into a submissive pansy and a yes man to ml. He can't say no and he can't speak up. Where is the confident and sassy mc? Or does he just have a split personality? ML is too controlling of the MC and never lets him decide for himself. He's the most powerful person and he gets easily jealous for no other reason than comedy or drama.

Their relationship summarized:

    • MC as the henpecked husband
    • ML as the controlling wife (who also wears the pants in this cp)

It's not romantic at all and their dual cultivation is lackluster, too. We never get any idea how much they love each other. Their feelings are shallow and glossed over. It feels more like they don't mind being together than actually wanting to be. Better skip these parts.

I am extremely sad. This book was one of the first ever BL books that I started reading. The updates from this book is what I look forward to every morning. After 700 something chapters, it has finally finished.

I loved it. It was enjoyable, funny, dramatic, intriguing, and a master piece! I highly recommend reading this book, and if you don’t you’re missing out. I personally love cultivation novels, cough maybe because I have a thing for guys with long hair cough, but yes. They’re so cute. You start to... more>> get attached to them after seeing their journey throughout the whole thing, and it made some scenes so heart breaking that I started crying on the bus.

This novel is relatively relaxed even though it's quite long but it is something that I wouldn't consider extremely tense. Yes, there are a lot of secrets to uncover and everything but the MC and the ML never actually bump into a problem that they can't resolve. The plot though is quite interesting and I can say for sure that it will hook you on at some point. In terms of romance, it is there but it isn't everywhere. I would say that this is more of a plot-orientated novel.

Having... more>> finished the novel, I'm actually quite sad, I'm going to miss YXM and LX. <<less

LuluCrapibou well I've tried few times but just can't handle this. Compared to novels which i've read this one is the worst.

ML ? Yep- narcist, selfish, molester, treating MC like plaything, rapist, more OPP than OPP

MC? For godsake so s*upid that I can barely whitstand it, without personality, acting like brainless dog (sorry even my dog can learn more and btw I love her) some of you said that he is just like girl, well not at all, for those who doubt I must say -girls have brains.

Plot ? So... more>> long and boring that I wish luck everyone.

I really think that author should read some novels or go for some course.

After reading GDC, Thousand Autumns, Heavenly Official's Blessig and many others I just feel like i've been changed seat from horse to childish bike.

This was already said, but has to be said again. The ML is too controlling and manipulatice. Everything has to go his way. He mocks MC most of the time and makes fun of him (I didn't find the joke about MC's double-digit funny, it was brought up way too many times) It isn't funny, it is rather mean. The MC is clearly bothered by this but he's afraid of ML. The ML would just force himself on the MC, even if the other is in a bad condition... more>> and doesn't want to do the do. While some of the side interactions are really cute, it is not a healthy relationship.

While the story is alone by itself and the MC is hardworking and very loveable - the story is pretty much based on their relationship, I can not give one more star.

This novel would be a masterpiece for me, if their relationship would contain equal mutual respect. <<less

This is my 2nd try at a translated Chinese novel. The 1st was Against The Gods which a friend raved about. I got excited and tried it but the MC was such a douche, selfish, and so disgustingly perverted. I hated him so I had a horrible impression on Chinese novels.

BUT I tried again, this time with a BL novel in the hopes of not encountering a Every-female-is-wet-for-the-MC situation. And I feel like I hit the jackpot! This novel has a surprisingly good worldbuilding and plot. At least in comparison... more>> to the first CN novel I read. And the main couple is monogamous which is such a relief. The MC is smart and capable. Best part, the writing/story can be hilarious which is new.

Sadly, it does have parts I don't like. One of which is the power balance of the couple. I don't like the seme/uke relationship as I don't think its all that healthy or good (Sadly, almost all slash stories use this trope). But at least the couple cares about each other. I just don't like the whole Ling Xiao just having his way with the MC regardless of all his voiced objections. Too much like r*pe to me. But the s*x scenes are spaced quite far apart that I can mostly ignore the forceful undertones and enjoy the story.

Another thing I don't like is how the MC just seems to be not as smart/capable/sneaky when interacting with Ling Xiao as with other people. This is probably also part of the whole forcing against the MC part I didn't like.

But still, overall the story has far more good than bad. Plus, there are so many chapters and exilerebels updatas a chapter every day!! <<less

With the high ratings and regards for this novel I really, really tried to enjoy it.
The story in the beginning is so focused on numbers that I almost didn't make it through the chapters. Page after page is used to describe percents, magical herbs, magical pills and what not. I went into this novel thinking I had found a BL novel that I'd enjoy, and instead found some kind of twisted Farmville story.

To top it all off, everytime something special is mentioned, you can be absolutely certain that the... more>> MC will achieve that. A rare beast? OH BEHOLD THE MC GOT IT! A rare plant? LO AND BEHOLD THE MIGHTY MC DID IT AGAIN. I did not enjoy the MC at all, and only became more and more frustrated with how "lucky" he was, yet totally ignorant to everything.

Then there's the seme-guy... Don't even get me started on him. Being rude all the time, bordering to raping the MC, not showing any affection... Not to mention the discriptions of his dick. For godness sake, I know that this is a yaoi, and big dicks belongs to the seme and all... But... Really? R e a l l y?

I tried, I honestly did. But I found myself being so utterly annoyed at everything happening, and the MCs, that I gave up. Perhaps it gets better later on. Who knows. But if it takes that long, I don't feel like it's worth it. <<less
