Synopsis

On the surface, Xi Tianyi was the only son of Sword Empress Xi of the Buzhou Immortal Sect, the number one expert in the Huang Realm. His birth was noble, his status exalted. But the truth was that Xi Tianyi was actually a reincarnated man from a world known as Earth.

On Earth, he was no one special, but with his new life, Xi Tianyi aims to reign invincible: past, present, and future. Among his goals was to travel back to Earth and reunite with his family.

However, as Xi Tianyi proceeds further on his Immortal path, he discovers that rather than the protagonist, why does he seem more like the cannon fodder villain?

    It's good and if you like cultivation novels I would highly recommend this.

    Another point is, the MC is overpowered but it never feels like plot armor because of how different his cultivation is to everyone else's, in fact it would feel completely wrong if he couldn't beat people a whole realm ahead of him. I at least consider that point a big plus

    Update112 : at around chapter 100 this story feels like it's degrading, there's a lot more nonsense where half the chapter is redundant explanations and random people praising and commenting things we, the readers already know, it's a really common move in Chinese novels, I guess they do this to lengthen the story, I hate that type of brain dead filler, almost feels like I'm being told I'm stupid or can't remember what happened last chapter. 

    Example: MC blocks with palm: page of how great palm art is and comparing it to universe. Enemy attacks: another long explanation, attack is blocked, page explaining both enemy's and MC's emotions and thoughts, then page of random idiots saying the exact same thing we just got from the last 3 pages just with interactions between themselves "So amazing, " the last 2 fights with MC that happened back to back were the worst 2 since the start of this novel, I literally felt like I was forcing myself to read them in hope this novel regains quality... well, I actually like this story and hope the author gets their act together, maybe slower release schedule or a break? 

    Just saying for fiction quality always beats quantity

    If anyone disagrees with me I'd be happy to hear your opinion

    I came to drop low rate only because of the bad end of the chapter 95. Nothing more cliche in xianxia than a villian forgiven at the end of a case, to cause problems later as retaliation

    --chapter 139,
    The same enemy escaped for the third time after being cornered, like most Chinese clichés where enemy keeps escaping like cockroaches and causing bigger problems later, this shows the author's inability to follow the course of his story without appealing to the same villain over and over again, I almost decide to drop it in this chapter, but I'll do it differently, I'll just read it for the slice of life and skip any cultivation and action bullsh*t going forward.

    Everything up untill the Lovespot arc was refreshing and tightly written but recent chapters has noticeable drops in quality. It feels like the author was changed in a few parts and it feels jarring. It just feels like its starting to turn into another dime a dozen cultivation novel.

    If u take out chapters 87 till 95, this novel deserves all the love and praise it gets from the readers. (I give it 3 stars only because of the mini-arc later on that).I would say cultivation novel done in a much better way than those Chinese sh*t novels. No repetitive plot, No idiotic young masters and their clans (ch.87-95 exception), solid world-building, and character development, plus a lot of mystery that drives this story in the right direction, fight scenes don't take 10 chapters for one blow to finish and it's really entertaining if u like cultivation novels but don't like those bloodthirsty (MC in this novel kills and has no problem whit it but only when it's needed), harem seeking, humble-arrogant moronik mc`s then This novel is for u. Some pros-cones just for fun

    Pros: 

    Xi Mengfei (just love here character), Relationships (it's much better than in most of the same genre type), a lot of mystery, a decent amount of comedy, the plot progression pace is perfect, the heavenly Dao vs Tianyi, and Mengfei whit the middle finger ;)

    Cones: not enough character development on side characters and antagonists. Not enough  Daoyi (need a lot more love from authore) And the so-called Lovespot mini ark (chp 87-95). This mini ark almost destroyed the novel and that is not just my opinion. WARNING MINOR SPOILERS

    I don't even know where to begin whit this one, from the beginning till the end it's just pure Trash, I almost quit reading the novel. Now I don't have a problem whit the conclusion but everything that leads up to it is illogical overcomplicated BULsh*t. I hope the author will delete or revrite this ark if his gonna publish it because I guarantee that the pages will end up in the fire. The author ruined everything in this mini ark, from a logical world-building to characters and even the image of the sect.i could write down all the things that went wrong and illogical but it would take me a book to finish it so I just say that this ark NEDS TO BE DELETED AND REWRITTEN. Hope the author takes this as constructive criticism and rethinks all the happening of the ark.

    As a xianxia fan that has read web novels such as Desolate Era and I Shall Seal the Heavens this novel fits my taste. The author knows the common tropes of xianxia and even references them and pokes fun at them. The main character feels like a person who has actually transmigrated into a cultivation world with how he views too much cultivation as tiring and he does not have a double standard like many common MCs and feels prideful but not arrogant. Looking forward to more!

    Meh, truly was interested in a xianxia for once until it became obvious that both the MC and Daoyi are from Earth. Yeah, another person from Earth just happens to be at the same exclusive banquet, to be noticed by the MC, and become his mother's disciple before he knows anything about her in one of his extremely rare visits outside of the sect. She drops a bunch of hints about her origin that readers instantly understand but for some stupid reason, the MC doesn't even become slightly suspicious so the reveal just gets dragged out for no good reason.

    I seriously hate forced plots. Xianxia authors rely way too much on pure coincidence to drive the plot & romance. They all do it, and it's so damn lazy. This web novel has also copied other terrible habits of xianxia novels: repeating yourself for absolutely no reason and stating what is completely obvious. Seriously, why do you feel the need to constantly repeat exactly the same thing except just worded differently? Why do you waste your reader's time by explaining stupid sh*t? This isn't Quidan where wordcount is king, so why are you doing it? Edit: I've discovered that this is actually a webnovel original which explains everything... wish I'd known that before I even bothered to start reading.

    A really enjoyable story about a transmigrator who is trying to find his path to an unfettered life by escaping the chains of the past and overcoming the Heavens. 

    Literally. The Heavenly Dao is out to get him. But with his insane level of Dao comprehension and general cultivation badassery, he carves his own way to immortality. 

    Coolest Young Master with a heart of purple-gold working through his own disfunctional social skills and building truly heart-warming relationships with his absolute unit of a mother. Had me in tears during certain parts. His power creep is done rather well as its mostly focused on Dao comprehension, the talent for enduring painful cultivation, and seizing on karma that he builds up. 

    The novel goes downhill around chapter 90 with the whole rapist young master scandal as it just completely contradicts the earlier worldbuilding. First off, MC has an unparelled status within the sect. He's absolutely a future immortal and probably Divinity. Not to mention that the rapist in question is allowed to completely insult, demean, and then destroy the sects dignity both internally and among allies? Yeah, no. Not even MC could get away easily from that... And supposedly the otherwise astute and kindly Sect Master is actually DEFENDING that sh*t? Also so, the entire female upper echelon wanting him dead means nothing? Unlikely. The whole thing is just too contrived. I might expect it from a sub-standard trashy xianxia that you can find anywhere, but not here. This story had too much going for it. But I'm dropping it as of now, it just completely broke the immersion for me.

    Status: chapter 143: humiliation

    I generally don't like Xianxia, Xuanhuan or cultivation novels. This novel contains a lot of the stuff that I don't like about them, but most of those things are stuff that more or less defines the genre, so I cannot hold that against the author or let that influence the rating that I give.

    What I absolutely loath though is that you usually have a "genius" protagonist, who schemes and does petty stuff and obviously can't make a plan to save their life. I feel as if I can hold that against the story, that's not the fault of the genre, but a failure of the author that can't write a story with an intelligent character.

    For example:

    Spoiler

    It would not be that hard just simply talking with a person to find out if they are actually a transmigator or you could just play them off each other, hell, you could even make up another transmigator and just drop that while talking with a suspect, especially in this case since none of the suspects seems to even care to try to hide the fact, except the MC.

    [collapse]

    And I honestly don't mean to insult the authors intelligence either. He's probably somewhere around median IQ, like most of the rest of us. It is probably really hard to write a believable genius unless you actually are one yourself, and few people are.

    I don't know if this story is originally made by the author if yes then your skills are really comparable to those other xianxia novel I read, I really like the plot of the story as it's uncommon for xianxia novel to have that kind of plot and I like how you made the MC's personality develope and you really made me cry author... good story author you deserve a 5/5 rating out of me!

    Status: chapter 143: humiliation

    the beginning is good but then the quality drops extremely and the xianxia cliche is taken to the extreme

    the story is about an MC who was reincarnated as a young master son of the greatest specialist in the kingdom, the "protagonist" time regressor wants to kill him, there is a whole explanation and logic for this and I won't spoil it here, next to that the biggest kingdom enemy is trying to revive using clones created from fragments of his soul, here we have the plot summarized

    now the positives,

    • the story is somewhat realistic, it is believable emotionally speaking, the MC and the others (apart from the antagonists) are not a bunch of genocidal madmen with no feelings

    • their relationship and interaction is also very good, in particular Mc's relationship with his mother, reaches the soul-healing level of so nice and cute, a level so high that I secretly hope the wincest ship Mengfei X MC to sail

    • the cliches are a lot reduced compared to a standard xianxia, ​​however a specific cliche was SUPER amplified in the last chapters, I will mention it in the negative points

    now the negatives,

    ○ the MC is not a great genius with infinite preparations against a regressor and an old monster trying to revive all the time, that's unfortunate, he's just lucky to cultivate fast and apparently has someone who helps him secretly without even him and his mother knowing 

    ○ the romance is close to non-existent, it should have the slow romance tag, I can't even remember in which chapter the romance between MC and Daoyi made progress last time, probably more than 100 chapters ago

    ○ it seems that the author, in exchange for reducing several cliches, EXTREMELY increased one in specific, and practically one of the worst of them, the enemy never die, always being an immortal cockroach full of artifacts, techniques, souls possessing bodies and all the rest, the regressor for example fights the MC 4 times, and even after that he doesn't die he is just arrested, the dragon emperor trying to resurrect has infinite clones, techniques and artifacts and never truly dies, he was almost killed by the MC, escaped, was ambushed by an immortal concubine 2 realms above than him and still escaped with his life, oh my god there is a limit to how tenacious a character can be and the author makes us want to drop the story exceeding him over and over again, the arc of the lovespot young master arrogant and lewd was also horrible because lovespot and his grandfather never die, his grandfather even in prison continues to cause problems, this made me remove 2 stars from the final rating of this story, this absurd and excessive cliche is tiresome to the extreme and one of the reasons I hate generic xianxia, ​​the fact that the author brings it to this story made the quality drop extremely from chapter 70 forward
