As of chapter 50:

Don't let the self-deprecating title or the generic synopsis fool you. This is a great fiction. The story flows smoothly. The characters are likeable and fully fleshed out. The execution is masterful (and I don't use that word lightly). 

At 550+ pages there is still no harem in sight. So no rushing and failing there like so many lesser fictions do.

"A Very Cliche Xianxia Harem Story" is only "cliché" if cliché means similar to the great Xianxias, the likes of Stellar Transformations (but with a more likeable cast, in my smug and snobbish opinion).

I don't want to hype it too much but– f*ck it. I'm hyping it. This a superb fiction, and if it delivers on what has been hinted so far, it's going to be one of my all time favourites. It deserves more love, so read it.

I haven't noticed much grammar issues, but I ain't an authority on the subject.

The only "negative" point, as pointed out in other reviews, is the slow release rate. But seeing as the author has been posting steadily for more than 25 months, instead of burning themselves out in three weeks with daily releases as seemed the trend these days, I'm willing to call this a positive instead.

Review amendment: With all that said, if you're looking for a fast and brutal power hike with a self-righteous OP lead and lots of arrogant bad guys being pummelled for not seeing Mount Tai... then this is not it, and you're probably going to get bored. 

Note: I know giving almost 5 stars in every category seems like an exaggeration. But those are my sincere thoughts.

At the end of the long first arc (chapter 31), the author asked in a bottom note "What worked and what didn't work for you in this arc?" And thinking about it, I found I couldn't think of a single genuine bad point, nothing I thought didn't work, and nothing I could have done better.

Maybe I'm wrong, and maybe if I re-read it I'll have another opinion. But at this moment, I'm in love.

The author is retelling the genre properly. Let's hope he keeps writing in the same manner 😊😀

I really like the story, the author accurately captures the feeling and mood of a xianxia epic right away in the first chapter. The story is well put together with action occurring at a quick enough pace to keep the reader engaged.

The characters created by the author meet the purpose of being cliche xianxia roles. Regarding the use of grammar and punctuation, the author does well and the story is readable.

My one hangup with this story would be that I wish that the author would use the past tense when it would be more appropriate sometimes rather than using the present tense because the story comes across as being one long stream of consciousness and is difficult to read.


The child is a small one. He has barely seen seven years in this world and has never once seen another city. His hair is black which is not uncommon in Eastern Port City. His eyes, however, are ruby red, something that has always drawn its fair share of stares.

His name is Liu Jin, and he is angry.

"Take it back," Liu Jin says once more. His hands are already clenched into small fists.

This novel felt like a dream.

Too good to be true. Here you will a sensible story that is much more than any other wuxia story out there.

Ignoring the title, this story in fact is the best I've ever read when in comes to cultivation, plot, setting and story.

I hope the author continue this wonderful gift

xianxia with personality

Reviewed at: Chapter 59: Present

Ive always been a fan of xianxia style novels but a lot of them repeat the same tired tropes over and over again, or have one or two characters that are fleshed out and every other person is just a cardboard cutout.  This story offers some fantastic characters, and a mc that is not just some overpowered murderhobo gliding through the story on his plot armor. Highly recommend this story.

Reviewed at: Interlude: Su An

This is one of the best cultivation stories i have ever read, the characters are memorable, the realms are cool, the plot is amazing, and every time I read a chapter i feel like i am reading xinxias for the first time.

But there is one issue the release speed is sooooooooo slow and i encourage everybody to support this story be it with positive reviews, rating the story or anything you can do to hopefully make the authore write more

Disclaimer:I dont know the author, i just want more chapters

 After thousands of chapter of different xianxia,huanxia,etc novel i'm proud to admit that this on is truly top notch,and to thank you for the entertainment you've provided to us(me in special) you deserve a 5* rating. Amazing work and hope you continue along this path. A truly marvelous novel.

Unlike other stories of the same genre, it doesn't rush through the beginning of the story to get to the face slapping of gods and getting a new butch every chapter.

This story takes the time to flesh out the characters in it, the world they reside in, and the power sets for everyone. Easily among the top fictions of Royalroad.

A Unique and Special Xianxia Story

Reviewed at: Chapter 65: Empty

 Ave Xia Rem Y is pretty good. The only real gripe I have with it is the fact it is in present tense, but even then, it grew on me, and I didn't even notice it after a while. Even now, the phrase 'Liu Jin cried' sounds strange as opposed to 'Liu Jin cries.' I feel compelled to dock half a point from the style score due to the fact it's on the reader to get used to it.
The story feels extremely slow, and I can't tell if that's due to a slower pacing, or if it's just the release schedule. Other than that, the story feels small and personal, revolving around a core cast of very well constructed characters. It feels extremely realistic in that there are multiple story threads which use different characters and don't interact very often. For example, the whole thing about Liu Jianguo's backstory is relatively independent from Xiao Sect's schemes, and yet when they interact, such as with the matter involving Xiao Shuang, it feels natural. I will still only give four and a half stars as the story has yet to bloom out proper.
I have no issues with the grammar, yet I will dock half a star due to the initially awkward present tense narrative. However as I said earlier, it grows on the reader until they no longer notice it. Other than that, no real complaints.
Now, the characters. They are the best part of the novel. Each of them act in a way which makes logical sense. The best example is Xiao Fang, who seems to be the 'Arrogant Young Master' seen in too many other xianxia novels. And yet, while he exhibits many traits pertaining to the stereotype, he can put that aside to show a unified Xiao Sect front for the rest of the city. He was based off the stereotype, but is far more complex than it. The same holds true for the other characters.
Liu Jin is the MC, and yet he is not an overbearing murderhobo. He is inherently polite and respectful, and has serious qualms about killing, as it conflicts with his aspirations of becoming a doctor. Essentially, he is more than just a caricature.
This novel is pretty good.

  • Overall Score

Basically, this has all the tropes of the classic xianxia story wise, but it's the execution that shines :

- MC is humble, good natured, very clever and not a psycho. That already is a very good point.

- All characters are developed as actual sentient beings, not a bunch of sociopaths with the IQ of a dead fish like the typical xianxia. That's great.

- Characters change over time, enemies become friends.

- It's harem but mc isn't a harem seeking lecher, which is my favorite kind. Nothing developed really in that area anyway, he's still young.

- Proper master/disciple relationship.


Read it if you like classic xianxia universes, but populated by actual characters and not nazi-like stereotypes.

Don't if you expect that after someone looks at him unhappily, the "virtuous" mc destroys this dude's family up to the 15th degree, rapes his clan's women, and takes a dump on their remains.
