* The Story BEGINS in Chapter 33 (Vol 2) It IS NOT necessary to read the first 32 chapters. (The First Volume is like a little spoiler about the future important characters that will come out as the story develops [I only wrote it on a whim, and it is also badly written and has many errors D:]) * A great expert and powerful Immortal of the Immortal World, decided to sacrifice himself to save one of his disciples and send her away from the place, while finally he was dragged toward the immense and dark abyss. But inexplicably he was moved to the void, where apparently the Great Dao itself would take his life and soul to show him the true meaning of the Dao, but thinking of his dear ones, he refused to die and defied the Heavenly Laws at that moment, resulting imminently in his defeat. Later, he wakes up and realizes that he is still truly alive but has apparently fallen to a lower plane, a small world where the Chi spirit is scarce and there are demonic beasts that attack a City that seems to be the only possible human settlement in that whole small world, while humans practice a type of ancient martial arts to become stronger. However, his cultivation is still there, but it is currently restricted and enclosed by the same Heavenly Laws. In short, he has a Heavenly Seal that restricts almost all his might. What will Ling Tian do in order to return to the Immortal World while gradually removing his Heavenly Seal so that his cultivation and power return to him? Ling Tian will slowly understand the mysteries and conjectures about the Great Dao itself, realizing that there could be great danger in the future concerning all forms of life and existence. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ IMPORTANT: THE FIRST VOLUME IS NOT NECESSARY TO READ, YOU CAN SKIP IT. IT ONLY DETAILS SOME IMPORTANT EVENTS, AS WELL AS MAINLY THE IMPORTANT CHARACTERS THAT WILL COME OUT LATER, SO YOU COULD SAY IT IS A SPOILER. In short, this is just a small summary of the MC's past about some things he had to face while cultivating himself until he reached the top of the world, being in the highest realm of cultivation just before falling in the lower plane, where then the main story would really start. The things mentioned in the first volume will be mentioned in the main story as well, so don't worry about the details. It should also be noted that those first chapters are somewhat misspelled and may have many inconsistencies or grammatical errors. From chapter 33 onwards, the main story begins, so there is no problem for you to skip the first volume. * The cover image does not belong to me, so if the original owner has problems he can inform me and I will gladly remove it *

I’ve only read the first volume. The first volume was amazing. The author proved his ability to make a great story by summarizing an entire novel in 30 chapters, but then you took it a nitch higher by making the MC someone who has actual love for people. He does what he has to when the time come, but he just wants to keep his adoptive family safe. Not afraid to admit that you also did a great job with makIng my eyes water a few times with his “children’s” backstories and him taking them in. If his personality stays the same from here on he’s going to be my all time favorite MC. Cannot wait to continue reading!


A cultivation novel without a bit.ch crap mc trying to be a young master or a fk head... a really great novel if i should say so... cz it actually focuses on mc development... and his character as well... like nobody is an all knowing crap all the time they have to learn... though sometimes mc will make some unreasonable choices BUT only in pre chaps... not the start ot true story... so don't focus on that... also has a great focus on relationship development... though it will be slow but steady... unlike 'picking Pokemon' harem type development... where everything goes cz it should be...😑 ........ well anyway give it a read and will know what a slow pace peaceful life with adventure romance and action in cultivation world....😎😎👍😉😁


Wow, this was a surprising and delightful find as I had to scroll down quite a bit for it. The writing quality is fine, updates are pretty frequent, and everything about the story is decent. The Way of The Dao is underrated and I think it deserves way more views. I rated it as 5 stars because I believe that the author will continue to improve as the story progresses.


I do not understand by those who give a negative rating. Did you read this novel because of TAG • R-18? You feel as though the initial 30 chp is rubbish and unimportant. If you want to read the novel of an immortal who immediately sex then read 'immortal only accept female' and you can masturbate to your heart's content. Author I think you should exchange the [R-18] Tag with [Mature] to repel the muddling flies.


Start from 33 chapter then you will never drop this novel.I really like character development.Writing style is good[img=recommend]. But think this novel underrated.


Good plot it remind me TDG. novel start with character development

if you want to read nerfed mc whom after his power has been unsealed, it was sealed again for no reason, this is for you. If you have read atg, it's like yun che of past life live again in floating cloud city, his poison pearl is sealed for no reason. instead of become stronger as time pass by, mc becomes weaker. author decided to nerf him down even more as time pass by for no reason. all the characters are stupid and one dimensional naive idiots. mc doesn't have goals and there's no clue when his power would recover. all depends on author. he will unseal his power at whim and seal it again at whim for no reason. So yeah, his age becomes much older but compared to his peers from his immortal world, he's just trash at this age and now he's just wasting it away in this place for no solid reason except from author pulling things out of his a ss.




One of the best novels around here, op mc, beautiful womans 7u7, a beautiful and pretty disciple, the r-18 scenes are very good and what else? Oh, if I liked romance, keep it up author, you have all my support :D

This novel is the epitome of cliché .... I kept getting déjà vu from reading each chapter and could guess exactly what would happen next. It's a decent novel the writing quality, background, and updates are deff five stars. The story development and character design is like a copy and paste from a different novel. If your just wanting to kill time it wouldn't be a bad read.


great quality writing ... im not too big on harems but this one is done just right in my opinion . we need more more more more more more money


Love this... Awesome for u who likes some slow pace heartwarming and romance cultivation story, really enjoying this novel for my free time.

La historia es muy interesante aunque yo particularmente empecé a leer desde el 2 volumen porque me dio peresa lo otro aún así esta muy bien, aunque no tengo mucho que criticar al MC expecto porque su comportamiento no concuerda con su edad... Pero en general el MC está bien solo espero no sea abrumado luego por sus esposas


Love this novel😘 Romance, Harem and OP MC 😘😘
