This is a renewed review where I will give you guys the pros and cons according to what I believe. See if it fits your taste before giving it a try, even though I hope that you will like it. Pros: 1) I review most chapters countless times, to make sure that the grammar is adequate and the details and describing of the scenes is detailed enough 2) Everything, including the reincarnation isn't random, but there is a bigger plot behind them (which you can find when you reach around chapter 54-56 3) MC isn't a simp. There is romance in the story, and it starts around chapter 150, but it isn't the type of <<ah, a beautiful girl, I must have her and every other beautiful girl that comes my way>>(No spoilers, I believe you guys will understand once you start reading). 4) I could list some more things, but I realize that they would spoil part of the story, so I'm leaving the rest for you guys. Now, here are the cons 1) There are some cliche scenes like a pre-arranged fiance, but there is a bigger plot behind them as well. 2) The MC was an orphan before his reincarnation, and his character grows throughout the story. 3) The only thing that I haven't decided yet on the story is the harem. I want to have a harem but everything must be natural and there have to be feelings involved. At the same time, I haven't decided if there will be 2-3 women or 8-9. This is something that I will discover along with you guys as we progress through the story. Aside from everything listed above, I just want you to enjoy the story.


As a woman i dont read novels where the MC is (m) i prefer women but this one got me so hooked on the first chapters and i only rate writing quality and character design for now i still need more chapters before rating world background but my opinion is that author is very good at making you imagine his scenes without trying its really good so far

Ok the review is till chapter 33. Writing quality -5 story development- 4 ( Till now, there's no specific storyline and the MC just wants to become strong so that he isn't being played under fate and how powerless he was to change his condition prior his transmigration. The MC doesn't gets much pumped or angry after the typical engagement break plot. So far, the plot is progressing but there's no definite or specific storyline which alignes with MCs goal. That maybe because only 33 chapters has been released. -Not much clichés and regular tropes, if there are, they barely go beyond one chapter. Character design-4 ( MC only wills to not be a pawn where he can't control anything. So far, being an orphan prior the transmigration, he had to work to feed himself making him quite headstrong and look on the poor side of the earth. Now that hes in a cultivation world, he can gauge what needs to be done when and how accordingly. He hasn't shown much toxic behavior except a typical poison MC tongue. Update stability -5 ( The more the better but the novel is in it's infant stage so only authors know when and how much to post. So far, decent pace. World background- 4 ( So far, there's not much description on world background except the 'cultivation world' is entirely in a different space, meaning, there's a barrier between the commoner world and cultivation world. The barrier is on an high altitude where one can't reach it until they can fly and enter it. Besides that, there's only introduction on one sect which makes it hard to gauge how wide the world is. Definitely larger than our earth though. Mc has a golden finger which he himself can't figure out it's origin but it's pretty much OP but it works depending on MCs cultivation level. I have read the mainstream Chinese novels that are on novel updates and ********** and I have big hopes for this novel. I haven't done a review before but loved the novel and couldn't refrain from doing it.


strong protagonist hiding true power emotional scenes without cringe time! how can one not love this novel?


so far, so good! I first got hooked on reading when I discovered martial god asura, since then I've read hundreds of similar eastern fantasy novels. glad to say this one not only has the potential to be one of the better ones but, from what I've seen, is already one of the better ones.


so i read to the most recent update which is like ch 178 and let me tell you, the story is pretty solid. first of all let me tell you about the "cliche" things that you would expect from stories like this. 1 you start the first chapter with him getting the MacGuffin and from a person who can't cultivate "trash" (i so hate that word) to a cultivator) the good thing is that we don't hear any keep saying "how did that trash win so and so, i can't believe this TRASH got so powerful". he gets into a good cultivating faze quickly. 2. he meets a few "young masters" but for the most part they either get trashed right away without any focus on them or they are actually logical human beings who aren't that stupid and as of now there has been only 1 stupid young master and the story makes it a point to show you how dumb or at least illogical that person was 3. yes the MacGuffin that lets him become a strong cultivator makes him need more resources than other people. for now, it hasn't been that annoying. 4. yes he goes from one area to the other with a wholly stronger region where his power level is at the bottom...well not really, more like lower-middle and good for his age. plus it's not like the author is pulling these power levels out of his ass, we kinda knew from the start that the area he is in and the one he moved into recently is still just the start to the middle level. 5. he meets a girl but guesses what he doesn't fall in love with her on first sight but on the second time...sarcasm aside it didn't go as super fast as in other Chinese novels where girls just start ovulating like crazy just by seeing the mc. also she is smart to know how her beauty might bring trouble to the mc so she wore a vail when they went to a new place without any power backing them. I actually like this girl and she has been consistently logical. different things than the norm, mc is actually smart without him or the author constantly telling he's smart (when most probably they are stupid) it's not like he plays 5D chess against his enemies but he knows how and when to kill without bringing trouble to himself or his people. fight scenes are good, the leveling system has been solid and pretty standard I would say. for now, there isn't much you can hate the story on and the grammar is pretty on point.


thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu


I'm seriously enjoying the story so far I'm interested to see what the author die with the world they have created. uvucivivjvkvjcjvjvkvkvkj


So far this book has been so enticing with the writing style and how descriptive the scenes have been, it truly paints a picture in my mind of how things are truly happening. The characters are very likeable and this story has so much to offer! I can't wait for more!


I really like this novel! I got hooked since the beginning, and I was so disappointed when the chapters began to become locked, lol. But, I would gladly unlock the chapters because this is such an amazing novel!


Reveal spoiler


Really good recommend story it doesnt take forever for the story to get going but the pace isnt ti fast or to slow and The author keeps it interesting






Worth reading. Story moves pretty fast and there is not much of a drag. MC reaches higher levels of cultivation swiftly. There are no long separation between ML and FML.
