Thunder Martial

Description

It begins on the mountain.

With the glint of a knife, a flash of steel in the hands of a sworn brother. A betrayal.

Stabbed and pushed down the mountain, Zi Chen lied within the red-stained snow, left to die.

This is where it begins; he is given life by lightning,
baptized by thunder.

Those who had once betrayed him should all suffer in his cruel revenge.

I know this is an early review but I'm writing this because somehow I feel this novel has a lot of potential and brings some new variations to the genre.

Sure its a regular xianxia containing all the elements of xianxia genre but the way it starts off feels like a western movie, cautious MC and his best friend are in search of a treasure, only MC knows the location, unbeknownst to MC his best friend has his own agendas, as soon as the treasure is found, MC is betrayed by... more>> his best friend (sneak attack), crippled and left to die (villains thought they killed him). It was a very solid prologue. Within 30 chapters it explores themes like brotherhood, betrayal, cynicism, vengeance, double standards of human nature, ambition, bullying, insecurity and many other themes.

Despite the MC getting a super inheritance, he struggles to get enough resources to fully make use of his inheritance.

The novel also raises questions like "Is talent alone enough?", "Is backing more important than talent?", etc

Give it a go, I'm sure its not bad at all. <<less

Quite good..

Without being biased its already given for new translated novel to be quite generic given the fact that its already late translated and there are pretty much past novel similar to this before. But if this was translated earlier then I bet this novel can be said to be one of the good read here in NU...

"friendly reminder for new readers"

honestly readers shouldn't immediately judge the novel base on the reviews that a member who have read a lot of novel with he same genre before because they... more>> tend to be biased and forgot to think of the good side of the novel but instead their attention was in the clicheness and troupes..

Anyway as I said, this novel is quite a good read. plot wise, the betrayal start was a right spark to get this story going. The story has a potential. I believe if no repeatitive plots and this novel doesn't enter the endless revenge plot then I think this novel popularity will shine like the novel "King Of Gods". Honestly King Of Gods itself was a king of cliche in its own accord but because it has a fast translation, surpassed the 100 chapter, has the gravitytales backing and good translation.. it surpassed the other novels with the same clicheness.. if this novel was able to achieve the same achievements then I bet its popularity will be the same as the former..

If you like Martial Peak, Mystical Tyrant and novel as such them this novel is for you. <<less

Tl;dr: I've had my fair share of cultivation novels, and my verdict? Read it.

"That's right. Brothers are meant to be betrayed when there's a benefit."

If not the best, it's definitely one of the better Xianxia/Wuxias out there. Pretty tentative review, but as far as I know, the various characters in the story are intriguing, and there aren't any dopey sidekicks or distasteful, boring cronies.

Like all other cultivation novels, it starts off slow. But as the story progresses, we get to see something beyond the tip of the iceberg. Every single character has a unique personality (granted, there are many characters and it takes effort to remember them all, especially since they have Chinese names) and there are no boring characters. Each of the characters turn out completely different from... more>> what you expect, and some random character whom's name you don't bother remembering can reappear as an important character in later parts of the story. Hell, a guy who appeared a paltry two times in the story ended up being the cause of a certain antagonist's downfall. As the translator, I had to compile a wikipedia for all the characters because of how often the story went the polar direction of what I expected.

The clichés are used well and in moderation, and I particularly like the various quirks of the mc's friends. One of his love interests has a particular sharp tongue, another friend was introduced as a boring, ordinary cultivator but as the story progresses, we realise there is something more to him that he lets on.

The fight scenes are exciting, enough to get your heart racing, like any other Xianxia novel. To be frank, the only reason why I picked up this novel was because I got blocked by a paywall during the climax of a fight scene.

It is a refreshing and terrific read. Give it a go. <<less

If it's xianxia you want, then it is xianxia you get. That sums up Thunder Martial for me.

Well, it definitely starts off as a typical backstabbing, miracle revival xianxia for me. Zi Chen's "gift" or "cheat" is quite OP, but at least the uses are strictly defined in the story. While his cheat is very good, it requires the user to be extremely, I mean, extremely diligent with an unwavering Dao heart. (Daym. That sentence though.)

The story itself is relatively simple atm and it is heavily sect based with... more>> a lot of inner chaos between different levels of disciples. Our MC is like a watered down Li Qiye (ED) for me in that I'm amazed at how quickly his arrogance leaves him crowded in enemies. Granted, if left alone, he is quite quiet and yet idiots would always look down on him.

My only critic would be Lin Xue (the female side char). She... is like those hot-headed, short-fused, narrow-minded anime girls. Some might find her endearing, I personally don't like her. I commend her loyalty to our MC but I can't seem to like her character. Her shijie, Su Mengyao is a lot better in my opinion as she is much more mature compared to Lin Xue. She needs to grow up soon!

The xianxia tropes are really heavy in this novel and it's as cliched as it gets without going overboard. If xianxia is what you are looking for with a confident, hard-working MC going against at this point, literally everyone he knows, then this is the novel for you. If you are new to xianxia, this might not be a bad start since it shows you pretty clearly what you can expect from a xianxia while still being an enjoyable read. <<less

It is a pretty good novel. It has the typical plot tropes and xianxia elements with a pleasing feel to it. It shows an MC with the ever prevalent MC armor but also shows the MC going through cruel life lessons along with showing the darker side of the human heart. It seems to me that it has a great deal of potential as it is not a story where the MC gets life easy with super cultivation (though he gets a bit) and girls dropping like flies around him.

I... more>> am leaving the above in the review.

I am currently at chapter 41 and the story has gotten unbearably dull and foolish. The MC gets himself into trouble at the drop of the hat. I find him to be one of the most foolish characters I have seen in xianxia. The plot tropes are rolling out and frankly I have now lost hope for this series. <<less

Chapter 35 so far. All I can really say is this definitely has potential. Potential sort of like TDG. Start is interesting, pacing is good. Conflicts so far are actually sort of believable in the "wow everyone is kind of a f**king douchebag" way. Which does make sense, there's no grand techniques and flying swords and sects that f**king flood their lands with pills. Disciples of the sect bitch and scheme and steal for 1 or 2 pills, it's pretty low-key.

The pacing is good too, each chapter has enough to... more>> fill out the chapter and almost no annoying repetition. None of that "I'm clearly getting paid by how many words I write" repetition.

So far, I recommend it. <<less

It doesn't depart from generic xianxia too much, but does give an intriguing enough of a premise to keep the reader interested. At least for the first 14 chapters or so. Generic xianxia is a solid foundation in novel cultivation, but in order to comprehend the true dao the author has to branch out. I'll update my review once the author (or translator) is further along the path of novel cultivation.

This novel is great! However lesyt were very selfish and plain up scamming people. They had a donation open and patron for the novel and they didnt update it for a entire year while people were still donating also the block some of the open chapters just to make them patron chapters when they were already free chapter 63-65 guess they thought no one was keeping tabs on them while guess what you were wrong I strongly advise no one donate to that website cause what they did is just... more>> plain up scamming and if anyone from novel updates is reading this you should look into it also cause they are doing it with other novels also. <<less

My rating is 3.5/5. (No option for 3.5)

It's a generic novel. It started kind of nice, other than MC being dumb or probably the right word be "not smart". He shows his wealth even if he knows it will lead to conflict. Get into unnecessary fights and those fight will lead to more conflicts. The writer tried to make the story better with different settings and different martial techniques.

But that's all, what I liked in the novel. I don't know why writers try to include girls and make it... more>> a harem, the story was going downhill and making it harem made it worse. Fighting scenes are sort of good.

Well, it's an average novel and you can definitely try and see if it suits you. I had to stop at the end as nothing new was coming up. Just meaningless fights. <<less

It's a generic xianxia. At this point, for someone like me who basically read novels ever since spcnet forum, this is nothing new. It's not a bad read per se, but very predictable without many things to offer - plot moves while killing people who offend MC for no particular reason (they have no brain), and that's pretty much it. I'd rather recommend Soaring of Galaxia, Immortal Mortal, Plundering Heavens. Those are way better and one-of-a-kind xianxia/xuanhuan out of the translated ones.

Ey dis pretty good! I wouldn't give it 5 stars yet since there's not enough stuff going on in the story (five star stories always juggle lots of interesting threads imo, and this story's plot is a bit more focused. There are naturally multiple characters but, as of now, not lots of things going on in the background. 70 is early days though so this may change later on). I like the MC. He's intelligent, good at getting revenge, and it's also quite satisfying seeing some of his verbal responses... more>> to shameless actions. <<less
