Synopsis

The story of Qian Yu's path to immortality telling the tales of his adventure, hardships, and family he has created over his life!

* = smut/NSFW chapters

Hey guys, author here.

Current release rate: 3 chapters/week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday 8 AM EST)

Synopsis of the story is pretty straightforward from the tags. The start is very slow as I wanted to focus on world/character building and I can't really do anything about that. So if you expect MC to easily slap people and become OP in a couple chapters while having every woman he meets spread her legs, then sorry, that's not going to happen and this isn't your cup of tea.

Although I'm an English native, feel free to put any errors you notice in the comments.

Hope you enjoy~

Thanks,
TakeASeat

      Status: chapter 75

      TLDR: Give it a go, I was happily surprised.

      I would have rated it 4, if not for the guy that rated it 1 star, if more people review the novel, I will most probably downrank it to 4, but until then, I want more people to read the novel, so I'll give it a 5 for now

      Anyway, chapter 75 is the end of the second volume, and I have to say that until now, the novel has been great, the MC feels alive and other characters have a really nice depth to them as well. 

      The author is developing the world rather nicely, albeit at a slower pace than I expected, at least that's how it feels like, but that's neither a negative nor a positive really, so take that as you will.

      Overall, I recommend it and hope that more people would it give  go

      Wow, these reviews are really disingenuous.
      .
      This story was very disappointing for me. The biggest reason I have rated so low, besides what I said earlier, is that not only does it not live up to the tags that attracted me to the story, such as the harem, smut, R-18, and fighting too of course, but it doesn't even handle the themes it works with well.
      .
      let's talk about the slavery for instance. I don't mind dark themes and if they're handled well they can be great. This wasn't. The protagonist just doesn't feel like someone you can step in the head space for comfortably without cognitive dissonance or being upset with their choices in a logical manner.
      .
      There are situations where a decent person would purchase slaves for a good reason and not feel bad about it. Like if those slaves are being mistreated and you plan to help. For a practical person you might have the same reason, but make a deal with them to secure their loyalty and full effort in the future. Things are easier when people feel indebted, dependent, or respect you. 
      .
      This protagonist was okay with slavery from the start without any qualms or considerations of any kind and that was a big part of why I dropped and rated so low, but it wasn't even the only thing.
      Minor spoilers:
      Spoiler

      You see the protagonist needed a partner for dual cultivation and you might think that he would want the highest quality possible in that regard or that the writer had some early harem members planned out for that role. There were even two such women that were introduced and developed for the story, but he writes them out of the plot for stupid reasons and right away the protagonist was earning for his first slave. Stupid and illogical.

      .
      The protagonist's quite frankly is not typical by modern standards of ethics or common sense. (Not a lot off mind you. He is not a rapist or psychopathic killer enjoying himself. 
      He's just a smidgen off modern and despite people claiming he is meant to have ancient ideology, he definitely isn't like that.
      He's off just enough to make reading this unsatisfying because that and his decision making process will stick in your head and that's not considering the other issues.)
      .

      I read most of what's available and even ignoring the ethical concerns? The writing just doesn't cut it, man. The narrative structure is not well planned, it invalidates itself in places, throws out characters it developed as I said earlier, the pacing feels like it's just two steps behind where it should be to be truly satisfying, and the syntax is very poor. The scenes feel more like a dry diary at times, the setting and world building are shallow, and both are flat naratively. Locations aren't really described or built up because they likely weren't even thought of and when you picture the scenes they have no spirit to them. Like take M.H. Johnson's The Silver Fox and Western Hero? The cultivator wear Gi, Qipaios, or other period specific stuff that is pointed out tastefully. The architecture is described and even the landscape. I just want to point out, if you didn't know already, but locations, like cities, are characters themselves that need their own character development. Towns here are just that... towns without descriptions of much at all. It's lazy.

      Crazy stuff. No reincarnation? No super power? No hidden grandpa? No OP system? But it's still better than 99% of all other Wuxia novels out there?! Amazing how good a classic Chinese genre can be with solid story telling and relatable characters.

      Novel feels hollow, like there are no likable character the chances for any depth to characters are ignored. Every woman the MC meats just starts interacting with him and getting closer to him no mater of his social status and the story is jumping from place to place he was at the village you expect village life no it jumps to the sect you expect sect life it jumps to him roaming.

      Somebody could probably like it to me it feels like it was a fast written story and the flaws ware glossed over instead of fixed.

      I'm truly shocked that this novel isn't more popular because it's good, and I mean REALLY good. 

      Cultivation is really unique, interesting and fun.

      Fight scenes so far aren't just "Haha, I'm 2 stages above you, you have no chance at beating me!!!" or two people throwing skills at each other until one of them dies. They don't go on for 10+ chapters of characters just powering up every time they're about to lose. They are pretty quick, and because most abilities can be used in different ways they're fun.

      World building is good, though I do have to say that names and descriptions of sects and cities are on a simpler side. (Which I honestly prefer, since remembering them is much easier that way, at least for me)

      Harem and romance are REALLY good. So far it's one of the best harems i've ever read, and trust me i've read a lot. Harem members actually interact between each other, and it seems like later on they'll even go on adventure by themselves, without MC.

      MC cares about his women, notices when they're in a bad mood and tries to make them feel better, actually has character, and is a really likeable person.

      Smut and R-18 stuff is quite nice. Scenes aren't rushed, they don't feel out of place, and there's always a decent build-up before them. The only problem is that there aren't many of them, but there will be more later on.

      To put it simply this novel is simply boring and lacks depth

       The MC starts off in a village, nothing special about it, nothing described nobody introduced, and then he's off to the sect. Once again there is little to no real plot that happens besides the author stating that he is getting closer with 2 girls from the sect. He then proceeds to go to this competition with one of the girls resulting in him getting an inheritance making him a little more like an actual MC. After he gets the inheritance he decides he needs to go on an adventure for some reason and leaves the sect abandoning the sect route. This last part is what makes little sense to me. Why even bother with the sect beginning if he's just going to leave it like that along with the so called "relationship" he had with the girls. It seems to me the book should have just started out with him stumbling upon the inheritance and let the novel go from there. It's still early but the MC has zero direction and there seems to be no real plot or story for the MC to travel on.

      Admittedly I haven't read that far so its somewhat understandable for the story not to have much direction or plot yet, but the real deal breaker here is the lack of any sort of detail in the book. The interactions with the women are just bland blanket statements like; "they talked for a while and got closer". The dialogue is very little or sometimes non-existent. The events that happen play out like a quick summary with no depth or detail. The fights are just boring sentences like "He fought for 30 minutes and won". 

      Usually a book would choose a couple aspects to focus on while forgoing others which is fine, but the author chose to just get rid of it all together. The characters have no depth, the world building is blank, all events are a summarized snooze fest, and all the fights might as well be "the MC won the fight, it was tough"

      To the other reviews saying to give it a go, ide advise otherwise. It would be one thing if this novel was still active and has a chance at redemption, but with the author calling it a "slow start" and it being on hiatus, I have no faith that this story manages to turn around in the next 100 chapters.
