1) The concept is such that it has a lot of scope. The MC can create all kinds of stuff like modern appliances, mystic tools used by cultivators, military weapons, instruments which combine modern and cultivation techniques (such as a very low altitude satellite or a drone, etc). In short, just about anyone one can imagine, and its selling point is the part where MC astonishes others with his superior instruments. 2) The MC can be shown to occupy a no man's land, which he develops into some kind of organisation like a clan, sect, company, kingdom or empire. 3) The MC can win multiple battles against other individuals or organisations, with his superior instruments and modern knowledge. 4) The MC can woo many girls and ...(you know what I'm talking about) These were the possibilities, and I rated as such. Cons - 1) Writing is not fluidic. It doesn't feel smooth. Although I didn't find any major grammatical mistakes, the scene description feels broken. 2)The author is totally not good at writing romance. All romance scenes are cheesy, however they are not unbearable. 3) The MC does not feel ambitious. No signs of organisation building. It won't be interesting to read the MC living like Tarzan in the forest. 4) There is no awesomeness factor in MC's cultivation technique. It is kind of boring. ** I've written such a long review as I have a lot of expectations from this web novel.


Lest make this review: 1-We have an interesting world, you get a point +1. 2-Main character is a suppose super spy and genius, but it seems he forgot his brain in the other world -1 point. 3-Characters don’t learn from there mistake and keep making the same mistake, -1 point. 4-The introducing modern technology into this type of story is interesting, +1 point. 5-The over used trope of rich arrogant young master is annoying, -1 point. 6-The Mc has a constant change in personality that is confusing at time, -1 point. 7-The writing/grammar is good and understandable, +1 point. Okay we started at 5 if we calculate all, all the point this is our real review and our final score is 4 out of 10.


The novel is almost perfect. ALMOST, and unfortunately the not perfect part is the MC which is a huge part. I am at chapter 18, and the MC lacks brain function. He almost died once from eating beast meat, to much energy, makes sense. Second time he found a stronger beast and same thing AGAIN, almost died, he is not stupid he just lacks the brain capacity to think: weak best=strong energy, stronger best=stronger energy. If it was earth he would be the stupid kid that touches fire twice because it has different color and his brain could not make the connection. Chapter 17 he lets potential rapists and murders (his age) go free (hell he even protects them from death) obviously later on they push him into a life and death situation. The NEXT CHAPTER he kills someone so so he will get directions to a village (simplified of course, no spoilers). OP MC is ALWAYS <<<<< competent smart MC. I only bother writing the review because how disappointing it is, this could have been 4.6/5 easily with a slightly better MC, no need for perfect.


The Novel itself isn´t bad. But at the Middle 100+ Chapters the Story goes From 4-Stars for me to 3,5-Stars. Now i skipped a few Chapters to look if the Story gets better, but only got More Frustrated. Its like the Author WANT´S to have the MC be Hurt/Busy so that he doesnt go back to his Girlfriend/Familie. I can guess what will happen when MC get´s finaly back only to get Hurt again by his Girlfriend. That is why i Dropped it. The Whole Cultivation of the MC is around chapter 70+ Not more mentioned, till something Big happens. Well if you are a Fan of Harem, then this Novel isn´t for You. If you are a bad Drama Fan then it is something for you.


Had a lot of potential but mc has trash character that doesn't fit his background things go down hill really fast around chapter 4! kept reading hoping it would get better but it just kept getting worse not for me good luck to all who want to read it.

Reveal spoiler


It was a great novel but when it reached the mistaken identity volume, I had to drop it. I might come back later and just skip over that volume but everything before that was pretty good.


Another one......wasted....just like mc from The Nine Cauldron, ( training more than 20 years to become the greatest hitman , but when he got to another world....hahaha...he just like an ignorant mc, who can't even think when someone plotting against him....for a guy who know what human emotion..are...to be like a normal guy....thats....worst)


The story started off good, I loved the forst two arcs but the third didn't have enough focus on MC to the point where he was a side character and 4th arc only mentioned him once up to where I was. There are grammatical errors but still perfectly readable, character development was good world building is nice and overall a decent first attempt for a writer. The story just completely lost my interest by the 4th arc mistaken identity and I don't want to spend money on it anymore. Still worth a look since some people will like it.


An excellent read covering science cultivation light and dark and many variables to make a fantastic reading experience. Keep up the good work I want to see how this story unfolds.


Story so far is amazing. Like how the different concepts of power mana and Qi are used and expanded upon. I also have to say I’m looking forward to more “mortals” showing up cultivators and maybe evening manipulating the elements better than the proud cultivators.


One of my favorite kind of story , a little bit revenge, other worlds, bad families and kick butt cultivation, Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I absolutly love this concept of bringing a steam punk styled outfit and weapons into a fantasy setting. Even though it seemed like the mc was just to good at so many things and always had a vast amount of knowledge stores from his previous world. Overall, this is a great read with lots of detail into its story and its characters.


I love the novel and i can see how much effort the author put in writing it, the only problems that i can see in this novel are that most chapters are blocked and that it is a little repetitive


keep on writing. I love your story.♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♥︎♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♥︎♡♡♥︎♡♥︎♥︎♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♥︎♥︎♡♡♡♡♥︎♡♡♡♥︎♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡




great story and thank you for novel .


I am going cons then Pros. The mc backstory is inconsistent with his actions. The author seems undecided on his intelligence and forces some plots making it a bit weird. Despite the weird inconsistencies, the premise is still okay, and does a good job for newer viewers of the genre . So will recommend, but advise to skip and read and forget some of bs in story and continue retending it never happened


This was a story with really great potential which was quite brilliantly shown in the beginning. However, by the 120 chapter, it just took all of that potential and happily chucked it out of the window. In the beginning, the mc was quite good and sensible but as the story progressed, all the sensibility went away. The mc kept trying to get stronger but due to some reason or the other he kept going back to zero. In the beginning, it was still fine as stuff kept improving fast. But by the end of it, the mc just got his cultivation back a little and after less than a day he was again back to horribly injured regular mortal. Also as the novel progressed, it was said that the mc is getting better in terms of smartness and strength but to me it seemed like he was getting dumber and weaker. I started this series thinking that it would be different from other cultivation series as I was utterly sick of the regular Chinese cultivation series due to repeating plots and stupid characters but it turned out that this is way worse as in those series at least the mc isn't as pathetic as this guy normally. So I'd say that you should not read this unless the author changes it up to become better again or you enjoy an overly stretched series where the mc is just being tortured by the author again and again whenever he tries to make any progress and always ends up becoming trash. I am not the kind of person to normally judge series on the reviews as I have found that many series I find good tend to have reviews saying that it's trash and many series I find trashy have reviews saying that it is one of the best ones out there. However with this series, I think the reviews are spot on about its quality and after reading it, I regret not believing the reviews. It just seems like the author doesn't want the mc to progress at anything and just be stuck in a constant loop where he gets stronger and then just loses all of it. After reading this I feel like cultivation doesn't make anyone better but only makes them weaker and dumber as can be seen with the mc who, after losing his cultivation twice, ended up half like a regular Chinese character who can't seem to ever win at even the things he might have handled easily in the past with the only difference being that he sometimes has some guns that others don't have.
