The Sovereign’s Ascension


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As a lawyer back on earth, Lin Yun had never lost a case. He owed his success to three things: two blessings he received at birth (a photographic memory and the ability to comprehend anything he studies) and an indomitable will he forged himself.

While on a trip in Shandong province, he decided he would pay a visit to Mt. Tai. Just as he was cresting the peak, he felt a sharp pain in his chest and his vision went black.

Upon waking up, he found himself in the world of Profound Amber occupying the body of a sword s*ave who had shared his name. The last thing he remembered before dying was the image of a sword piercing his chest.

Through the memories his body retained the sword s*ave’s life, Lin Yun came to understand the brutality of this world. If he sought respect, he would have to earn it through strength. The weak found no compassion here.

Refusing to leave his fate in the hands of others, Lin Yun set out to become a sovereign. No man or beast would stop him from achieving his destiny.

With his sword in hand, he would overcome any obstacle.

It started out ok, standard isekai into a useless character trope.

There is swordfighting, cultivation and a mysterious love interest.

Author was probably pretty inexperienced when he wrote this novel.

... more>> Previous owner of the body loved cultivation so much he sold himself into s*avery, and from then on anything MC does doesnt matter, bc he always be only a "swords*ave".

He defeating a opponent with a higher cultivation - you are still a swords*ave

He defeating the honor of the sec - you are still a swords*ave


Also author is reusing the same scenes every few chapters.

For example: MC defeating smbdy, their dad comes and saves their son and trying, but failing to attack MC.

The inexperience of the author shows.

Translation is pretty good but cant save this mess.

Sadly the Story and Charakters seem to be Bog Standard. I had hoped that, with a successful Lawyer as the main character, we would get someone with a balanced personality and not a hothead who fights for no gain (First battle gains him 2 more pills an enemy and selfsatisfaction) and is dismissive of others just because they did something he didn't like (He gave back a sword the person taking cleaned it, dismisses the pills he gained).
I have only read up to chapter eleven but I can't see... more>> anything that has to do with him being a lawyer (someone who is inquisitive, an orator, who twists words) in his last life he could have been any genius like person and the story would have been the same. <<less

Complete tr*sh, to be honest.

After reading 10 chapters ou immediately understand that MC starts in his respective universe's lowest realm's probably the weakest world's one of the weakest country's so so sect.

The story goes like this MC gets stronger, go to a stronger place, face slaps all the young masters because young masters always underestimate this MC and tries to kill him for some s*upid reason :) by the way, he will always be underestimated, and in his fights people around him will always talk like, MC cannot pull this... more>> off (even though he pulled that exact thing of two chapters before) or MC cannot beat that person because blababla.

I assume you get what kind of story from what I have written so far. There are tons of xianxia/xuanhuan novels with the exact storyline like this with different cultivation levels and powers. When there are tons of similar novels out there, the author and the writing is important because they make the difference and make you continue to read, albeit their novels are full of cliches, they still manage to capture your interest.

But this author is both inexperienced and does not seem to get experienced because the writing style never really gets better, it is dull and not captivating. The story is also full of plotholes and the author forgets lots of things.

In one chapter author says ''character A'' is in the x realm's 9th stage, then 2 chapters later he writes ''character A'' might be in the y realm, then 5 chapters later he writes ''character A'' is actually in the x realm's 10th stage.

Also, we do not even know, how the MC exactly looks like because the author never bothers to explain the physical aspects of the characters, not only the characters but even the world, making the worldbuilding extremely bad.

All in all the story is complete tr*sh in my opinion. The translation is also so-so, there are some grammar issues along with typos and editing problems. <<less

This novel is based on fairy tales. The background is Wuxia World. The MC fights against fate, perusing something beyond the limitations of his body. This book creates multiverse. In this way, it has its originality. The hints of foreshadowing later development is widespread in this novel and the plot is unpredictable. Besides, the characters are multi-faced. They have their unique personalities. The descriptions of scenes are vivid. In a word, I recommend you to read it.

Very 'Slow' novel. Reading this is like experiencing 4x the depth and value a normal fighting experience you'd get from a triple-a novel. Though that is the charm of this novel as fights are detailed and growth is well thought out as expressed in conjunction with those fights.

Plot armor exists to maintain our protagonist and it happens at the same time for all his issues; ... more>>

meeting someone who either cuts in to attack him after he went through a gruesome ordeal of one-man army or some one with a higher cultivation sniping him at the end.

It doesn't harm much of the read so is negligible.

Romance, probably the first one introduced initially is the main love interest.

It's a harem btw. 10, 000 yr old Loli-phoenix confirmed (though termed as daughter). Another two other women that become the core importance to MC's life in each arc appears.

Very little romance focus writing as author focuses quite heavily on expanding how MC growth with his skills are.

I recommend only if you have literally nothing else to read and are not in search for a fast pace, romance driven novel. <<less

No good. Plot and world building are bare minimum. But that would be OK if it wasn't One of those novels where everyone but MC is basically an evil bastard. The story fills me w dislike towards all these arrogant cruel manipulative selfish characters, it would be OK if it was just the bad guy and his crew, but every character is like that. There is no nice fatty or sweet beauty to lighten up the world. If I lived there I would... I would transmigrate again.

Series like this are why I read xuanhuan! Great stuff!

The only understandable "complaint" I've seen repeatedly is that the MC is supposed to be a lawyer but doesn't have a lawyer's mindset. A lot of people were expecting some sort of cunning genius who uses words and rules to outwit people. While the MC is quite smart, he doesn't display that kind of ability.

But here's the thing: the MC wasn't a successful lawyer because he was cunning. He was a successful lawyer because of his comprehension and photographic memory. His... more>> backstory is just there to illustrate that his mind was so powerful that it allowed him to excel in such a difficult, complex field. Now that he's transmigrated, that ability to grasp and remember things is part of what makes him such a freakish genius at martial arts. That's it.

Still, ngl, the jokes in the comments are pretty funny. Apparently, he never lost a case because he was working for the CCP... 😂 <<less

Unintentionally hilarious.

The synopsis says that the MC is some sort of genius super lawyer, so I was expecting a sharp-tongued, quick-witted MC who can not only defeat the enemies physically, but also mentally and verbally. But man, the MC must have been a tax lawyer or something. He's awkward, often tongue-tied, and always received verbal abuses without retaliating, unless you count playground insults as "retaliating". He never won an argument, like at one time a kid accused him of cheating and instead of using his wit to prove his innocence... more>> (like lawyers usually do), he strips down and let people search his body and storage rings. I'm surprised he doesn't also bend over, spread his cheeks and let everybody there body-cavity-search him. I literally could come up with several arguments to refute this claim, yet this genius lawyer couldn't even defend himself. SMH.

He's also got negative EQ, and aside from his monstrous battle technique comprehension, never showed any intelligence and maturity a genius lawyer should have.

It's like the author wanted a smart MC and asked himself, what kind of profession filled with smart people. And since he's Asian (like myself) he probably thought doctor or lawyer. And he chose lawyer. He should have picked doctor, it would have fit the MC's character better.

Other than that glaring weakness, the book is also generic, repetitive, and predictable. But hey, so do most xianxia/Xuanhuan novels. Worth reading if you're bored, but I suggest you do something better with your life and time than reading this. <<less

There are a lot of inconsistencies in this novel, even to binge read it. Furthermore, the cliché for the names of cultivation techniques, classical face slapping of young masters, sudden power up from one chapter to another, or the poor choices for the names of the characters, etc... make it difficult to focus and enjoy the reading if it's not your first wuxia-like novel.

Also, and surprisigly for wuxiaworld. com, the translator/editor work is a bit sloppy, and thus, some sentences are quite confusing. A better work of translation would definitly... more>> increase my choice of rate from 2, 5 to 3, 5. <<less

Start kind of 'better than average', then it goes down to 'average', then it goes down to 'less than average', and after I read this till 600 chapters it goes down to 'boring'.

The story is the usual meta CH MC, MC beat up thugs, thug senior comes, MC beat up thug senior, thug ancestor comes, rinse repeat. Its oooookay using this kind of development, but the author just doing the same thing with the story, similar lines, similar thug temperaments, similar personality, mostly all the thug template are the same,... more>> only different clothes, names *that I don't bother to remember cause its a waste of brain cells*, different parents/seniors name, higher realm than the thugs before, but they are mostly same...

If you like boring read after 200+ chapters I guess you can give this a try, but if you not, just look for similar story but with better thug lines and story development. <<less

The repetition in this novel is very startling even for a generic xuanhuan. Where most CN get repetitive at least its like a 100-200 chapter cycle. This novel repeated the same generic troupe like 5 times in 200 chapters.

the main character gets cornered by some arrogant dbags and ends up entering a "sure death zone" where he cant possibly escape only to eventually receive some incredible treasure or inheritance to level up and turn the tables on the people that chased him. This happened 5 times in 200 chapters and... more>> twice in a 20 chapter span. If you're going to get repetitive at least space it out. There are many novel regardless of how generic and repetitive still keep me reading. Just had to put this review out there because of how many times this author used that troupe, if it happens again in like the next 50 chapters im done with this novel. As of now its about a 2.5 for me <<less

Very generic. I mean like copy paste plot + copy paste characters from pre existing template.

Weak MC + plot armor. Became OP after few chapter. Defeating higher cultivation level enemy. Plus somewhat tangled love story and many more plot armor.

There are some good fighting scenes, enough originality. Cultivation process is nicely described, which is very refreshing to me.

Awesome story! Very funny most times and is quite a good read. I’m glad I was able to read it and I really enjoyed it. It may be a lot simpler than other stories but it was really a good read and made me want to reread it!

The previous chapters are vivid and detailed. The personality of every character is showed incisively and vividly. The author must know what story he writes and sticks to write it, therefore, the layout is sensible. The ML, Lin Yun, is a lucky person, becoming more and more powerful but the reason is receivable. But this novel sometimes is plot-muddled.
