To rise from defeat; to revive amidst the dissipation. As the vast oceans turn to dust and the thunder and lightning fade away, That strand of spiritual mist once again approaches our great world. With the shackles that bound our world now severed— A whole new world of mystery and wonder awaits, As we turn the corner... ------ The Sacred Ruins Is a story set in a post-apocalyptic world. A world that has recovered to a state that is roughly equal to our own world in terms of technology and culture, although its ancient history remains largely unknown. The story begins during the post-graduation trip of our protagonist, where he discovers some ancient ruins and witnesses “the great change”, an upheaval that changed everything. The changing earth not only brought about new, unexplored landscape but also sparked the evolution of all organisms. Plants and animals started gaining sentience and some humans obtained unimaginable powers. The legends, myths, and tales of old seemed to have suddenly come to life as the earth entered a new era where beasts and men formed factions, explored new lands and ultimately struggled for supremacy. We follow the MC as he grows from being an eccentric young man into a badass expert warrior while meeting other funny characters and forming brotherly bonds. We watch as he falls into just as much hilarious situations as he does perilous ones, all the while wondering and slowly discovering the mysteries of this world. Just why was the world destroyed in the first place? Who or what had triggered this earth-shattering “change”? What profundities lie behind the process of evolution? ------ Chen Dong is one of the top authors in the Chinese Qidian site and this particular novel has been number one on its monthly charts for several months straight. If you are looking for a funny and unique novel that is free from the cliches of reincarnation and cultivation, this might just be what you are looking for. The story develops quite slowly for the first ten chapters or so but becomes much better paced afterwards. ------ Release Rate: 7 Chapters/Week

He received a genetic score of 28... completely disqualifying him from applying to military college! He helped deliver a friend's love letter... and fell into a lake becoming infamous for dying for love! His very first gift... warped him into a brutal training simulation! However he perserved through all these trials! Our Dear Student Wang Zheng has finally started his lucky(?) university life! This is the song of a blood boiling and exciting storm! The most ferocious and heated mecha adventure around is finally here! TL Note: This is a novel about doing the impossible, seeing the invisible. Follow along for a ride across the universe! TL;DR: Not Shakespeare, not complex, but fun and easy to read. Come support! As the translator, I've enjoyed translating this novel and I hope to bring the essence of what the author has tried to portray into the chapters you will read. To sum it up in 3 words: Mechs! Explosions! Science! To be perfectly honest, this novel is about your typically overpowered protagonist who does get looked down from time to time but always overcomes the odds with his own special power. He's abit more mature having grown up on his own and just a littttttttle bit dense. Although it always ends up with him winning, it always happens in an interesting (subjective) and fun way that makes me enjoy reading this. The novel has elements of lighthearted comedy from time to time and I do chuckle at how direct the humor is. It's not as smart as say WMW nor does it weave an intricate story much like Ergen's novels. More importantly, its fun and it doesn't try to hide it.

In the first place, I personally love this novel so my review may be a lil warped. Ok so translation quality is in my opinion top notch such that the more immersed you are in the storyline there is no worry about translation quality ruining it. Update stability, I guess thats the only real problem i got since the quality of the translation is so good makes it feel as though there aren`t enough chapters (realistically though i know am being greedy lol). I love the story development absolutely realistic characters who make the novel that much better and overall engaging. As for the world building its one of the best i have seen crafted, personally its a wonderful novel with boundless potential(lets not even talk about Chu Feng, the Black Yak or for that matter or for that matter Yellow Ox). Engaging storyline and all in all fantastic read.

The only reason why this novel has such a bad rating is because the most liked reviews are from 5-6 months ago complaining about unstable release rates and bad translation, which has been great for the past couple of months. Please ignore those reviews and give it a try! Once you get past the beginning with some great world building which may be somewhat annoying for some of qidians younger readers (<14 years) you will find this story to be one of the best CN novels you've ever read. It's basically like the beginning of Swallowed Star with sentient beasts and a MUCH superior romance subplot! Also please do like a bunch of actual reviews so we can finally shove those outdated reviews on top into oblivion!

Read till Ch520. Sacred Ruins just gets better with every passing chapter. Chu Feng has to be the most shameless and most likable protagonist ever. He does face-smacking like no one ever does. Here is one paragraph to describe him (from the novel) : "Before he use to sell Divine Son, hunted for Saintess, and sell deity meat. Now he does the looting but also collect the protection money. This fellow is simply a feudal bully, bandit and underworld gang chief, really... Rotten to the core, is top villain, big hoodlum!”

Haters can hate but this is a good translanation, also if you guys think it's so bad then you should try do some translanation and then make them accurate, stop complaining as you get to read some translanation for free, wow so many people are unappricative, you all need to pull the stick out and chill out. If you don't like it then go on some random form and troll not here where people come to read. This is one of the reasons people quit translations because of ungrateful people such as you all, so much hate, you need to go get some stress relief with your right hand or something because it doesn't need to be squirted here.

Love this novel. I am loving the whole snorting powder to evolve using pollen thing, really an ingenious method to grow stronger through the abuse of drugs. Wish it was more popular to have more chapters but alas it is not meant to be. This novel has a special place in my heart. To the left of the renal artery.

I have never read this novel before I started yesterday and finished today .....I was so taken in by it that I didn't sleep lol and I had a driving theory test today and aced it, still this is oneof the best novels out there I live the mc, and the place that it's based in, the cheekyness from the baddies and the live interests in his life, it's not like the normal novel where the mc just gets everything (harame, power op and a very cool ablity) I know the seeds help but not a lot as he needs the soil and even for that he must fight by keeping it secret or people may come get it. I hope it keeps being translated and at a faster rate, any way to donate money to this book ????? Also thnxs for translating this novel :)

Mrnebulist
MrnebulistLv1Mrnebulist

The translator uses a wide range of vocabulary, which makes the story more fun to read. The translator chooses words that don't exist in the dictionary, words like yap ( supposed to be an animal) and stagger ( supposed to be a type of blade). Another bad thing about the translator is the update stability. All the translated works of Chen Dong failed because they didn't have fast and stable releases, and the Sacred Ruins is no exception as the updates are rather erratic.

Worth Reading! plot development is good and concise, all the character may not have a detailed background but can be considered stable and pivotal. Interesting point is how the world structure takes place specially how the author's use of diverse Historical Places not just the ones in MC home country

Quite tough to judge this novel, its obvious that many things are lost in the translation, especially in the first chapters, when many important info, mainly about the world setting, are not well-fully presented. Having said that, the translation quality has improved a lot, its actually not bad now. Anyway the concept is really interesting and well written, the novel has assimilated most wuxia elements and used them in a "modern"-apocalyptic world. The world build has soooo much potential, there is humour, decent romantic relationships, ruthless-kind mc, actually almost everything. Its really sad that another great novel of chen dong is undermined, this one by the translation in the first chapters and perfect world by its slow beginning and "abrupt" change of mc's character.
