"Through time and space, through life and death, I will chase after you. I will face the whole world just so that I can grab your hand once more!”

These were the last words Li Yang spoke to Fang Ying, planting a soft and gentle kiss on her lips as a rain of attacks landed on their bodies, ending their lives. But Li Yang meant those words, so when he was given the chance to reincarnate and chase after her, he accepted without hesitation.

In their last life, they had been hunted by the world and killed. He would not allow that scenario to repeat itself, no matter what he would have to do- He would firmly grasp that soft hand and never let go of it. If the heavens decided that they were forbidden from being with each other, he would carve open the heavens and force it to kneel to him.

As of chapter fifteen I have dropped this novel.


Rather than reading and experiencing a story, it's more like reading a first draft that never got fleshed out; it's dry and bland. Scenes that should be exciting or entertaining end up being dissapointing. I would suggest to the author that they watch some videos on the 'show, don't tell' technique.


It's your average xianxia story as far as I have seen. Unfortunately though, it's as if the author has a list of tropes he's trying to check off, with nothing to really differentiate this story within the genre. I will say this though, you know from the very beggining what the main characters goals are, and where the story is going; that's an improvement over a lot of other xianxia.


Nothing much to say here. No glaring mistakes that I have found. Punctuation could use a bit of work though.


In the fifteen chapters I have read, the only character you really get a look at is Li Yang, the main character. My only impression has been that he's a boring character.

Final Thoughts

I did skim through some later chapters and there was some definite improvement; I'm not going to suffer through to that point though. If the Author got an editor and started reworking early chapters, then this could be a good story.


  • Overall Score

This is a great story that has the same type of feeling and story writing that the wuxia and xianxia genres are supposed to provide.


Keep up the good work

Im really enjoying your writing. I hope you keep up the great work. I'm looking forward to the future reunions =)


This is a great story and well worth the time to read if you're looking for a good binge.
