From the moment Xuan Kai was born, he was fated to suffer. Devoid of any magical powers in a world where arcane power rules all, no one could protect him after his parents were assassinated. Betrayed by his friends, cheated on by his fiancee, and humiliated by his own family, no one would've blamed him if he ended his own life. However, he remembered his mother's final words as she passed him a stone pendant - "Live on." And as he held the rough rock in his hand, unbeknownst to himself, a never seen before magic element began waking in his body... "If fate wants to make me suffer, I will defy fate itself. If destiny wants me to die, I'll kill destiny first. If the heavens want to crush me, I will stand up against even the heavens!" ---------- Let me know if you find any inconsistencies in the beginning chapters with the later chapters.

It's been more than 5 months since I first started writing this series, so I thought I would come back to leave another review. For new readers of this series, please read this review FIRST, before picking up the novel. I will be listing some of the pros and cons of this novel here, and since everyone has different tastes, this novel is obviously not going to be for the entire population of Webnovel. Please don't complain about things later on in the story if I already clearly listed them here. So, without any further ado, I will start with the cons first, then talk about the good points later. CONS: - Harem. This is based on personal preference, so I won't say too much. Some people may find harem a pro of this novel, others may consider it a con. - Boring early chapters. The early chapters (roughly chapters 1-10) of this novel are quite boring since characters are just getting introduced and our MC doesn't have any powers at all. After he awakens his powers though, that's when the fun truly starts. - Cliches. Like any other story, there are some cliches within this one as well. For example, OP MC beats the guys who think he is weak, and he gets all the cute girls. HOWEVER, I've tried my best to keep cliches to a minimal, especially after the early chapters. Please focus on the plot development of the story instead of the slight cliches here and there. Also, keep in mind - cliches are cliches for a reason. - Chinese factors. In my opinion, most of my readers shouldn't be too concerned about the Chinese names (in Pingyin, not actual Chinese characters) proverbs, and traditions incorporated within this story, but nevertheless, I thought I would include this in the cons of this novel. If you have a problem with Chinese names or culture, I won't judge. Keep in mind everything is still written in pronunciable English, so no need to worry about not being able to understand what I'm writing. - Weak MC at first. In the beginning, the MC is powerless and has a weak will as well. He is constantly thinking of just giving up, and therefore is dragged/pushed around by others a lot in the beginning. He will slowly develop as he gains his power though - it is a weak-to-strong novel, after all. PROS: - World-building. This novel has a unique system, whether it's the 21 elements or casting process. It's like a mixture of Eastern Cultivation Fantasy and Western Magic. I could give more examples, but I suggest just reading the novel itself instead. Also, the world it is set in is more or less similar to the world we know. Thus, it should be easy for you to visualize scenary and such. - Writing Quality. There are little to no grammar, spelling, and/or capitalization mistakes within this novel. While English isn't my first language, I do use a grammar checker tool when I write, so there shouldn't be any major problems. - Harem. As said earlier, this can be a con for some people; it depends on preference, really. - Plot development. While the early chapters are slightly boring since MC doesn't have any powers (yet), after around Chapter 11 or so the story begins getting steadily better from there. Please read until then to decide whether ot not this story is worth it to keep reading. - Characters. Each of my main characters unique, and have different personalities. Some even experience slight personality changes throughout the story, as a major event happens (Volume 3, cough). Character development is also steadily happening, especially for the MC. - Mysterious. While this story is written in first-person (MC's perspective most of the time), not everything is directly laid bare (MC's thoughts, etc). There are both mysterious/unknown aspects regarding MC's abilities and the world itself that are hinted at but won't be revealed until the time is right. If you like imagining and guessing at what those mysteries might be, this novel's - or rather, my writing style may suit you. - Stability of Updates. Currently releasing 1 chapter daily, despite being busy with school. Wow, I wrote a lot. Sorry to all of you who're just trying to begin reading. I just thought it was necessary to list the pros and cons of the novel here so that readers know some basic aspects of what they will be reading. I hope I wasn't just doing something extra. Anyway, even if there are some points in here you dislike, I'd suggest still giving the story a try. Who knows? Perhaps the good will outweigh the bad. And if it does, well - make sure to smash that vote button with a sledgehammer and add this novel to your collection. That's all from me for now. - Cyclxne


I am so used with fantasy novels being to hard to process at first. This one I can read like it to release me from stress. The writing is superb and ******* build up was great. There is definitely something suspicious going around here. This story is very gripping!! 5 stars ✨


It is a really good story with great potential and written well too. The one things that stands out is the MC's personality. Even with a bit of dark side, he still has basic human feelings and very mature for his age because of his life experiences. I didnt find any grammar errors but with a bit editing and fine tuning of the plot line, it has all the ingredients to be popular. All the best


I loved the first chapter and in order to fill this thing idbdjdbejekendjudjdfkdndndkdndndikdndkdnndndndndndndnddnkdndkdndkddkdkdkdndndndn don’t have to read the thing


This is a great book I love is great characters and everything this book is 1# support Cyclxne All thank to him i can see potensial dont give up.


I haven't even read the book but the simple review already turned me on. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The plot is interesting. So far there are three chapters, so deciding on whether the story's development would be hard. The characters are pleasant and well described. The author seems to have ta unique writing style. With the use of uncommon descriptive words, the author was able to grab my attention. I have no complaints when it comes to the world background and stability of updates. Keep up the good work author!!!


So good! Your English is very good and you are skilled writer. So many pages it is shocking what happens in the novel! I am so excited for the next arc, I also really like the China theme because China is good! Thank u for taking SO much time to write and be Pro


such a promising story from the start of the journey, hopefully, I won't regret it at the end of it instead of choosing another story and Thank you in advance we appreciate all the authors for their hard working

I love this book. I was hooked on in it afyer the first chapter. Keep up the good work man cant wait to read the next available chapter [img=update]


Okay, this is some kind of cool. I've read a lot of magical fallacy stuff. But this is different. A well thought out concept with every aspect explained down to it's specific details.




I have never been a fan of this type of novel but I'm in love with this book. Everything from the writing style, word use, and world description is simply on point., The author has a masterpiece here, congrats author.


While the beginning is slow, I like it, the world background and character design are also my types of writing and there is nothing bad to say about it


One of the only books ive given a 4.8 because of the wonderful plot, The title is attractive and so is the cover and well done for that! The synopsis gives a glimpse of the contents of the book but still keeps the readers dangling for more! Xuan's character is strong yet we see hues of his fate to suffer and its drawbacks, you've honestly slain this piece! (in a good way) i tried not to give many spoilers hehe

i love noves like those, and the creator of this one did a great job, not only the characters, but the history itself is amazing i also liked how we are able to see how every character feels


I personally like the novel and so far it has been good [img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend][img=recommend]


meu conselho a historia e boa, promissora, mais a narraçao em primeira pessoa e cansativa. e segundo pesso ao autor para revisar os comentarios, pois a alguns erros de coerencia, para serem consertados, como estarem no campo de trinamento, mais a magia pode destruir a sala. se estao em campo aberto??? a outra e o medalhão espacial ele tirou as coisas do patriarca, e colocou no canto da sala, no entanto captulos depois ele dis injuto ele ter ficado com as coisas do patriarca no anel, se ele tirou tudo do patriarca!!!!!!, outro detale com o medalhão nenhum mc nao voltaria ao covil para pegar o artefato luminoso, mesmo que para vender, ele nao tem grana como ele nao pegaria o artefato, ainda mais um que absorve mana auto suficiente. e o mais depois de descubrir o padrinho e junto com o torneio, mesmo que o padrinho nao tenha dado nenhum dinheiro (o que nao faz sentido) pelo menos a secretaria deveria dar um uniforme ja que ele usa magia e vai participar de um torneio com presença de outros diretor de escola, seria uma vergonha um aluno sem uniforme em um evento, vergonha para a instituiçao. pensa nessas correções, que nao altera o conteudo dos capitulos mais da mais seriedade a historia, fica a dica
