Good but frustrating

Fairly generic Chinese novel inspired fiction, with a sci-fi coat of paint. We get the classic underdog orphan and the arrogant young masters who bully and underestimate the MC. There are clans, academies, masters and student, and rankings everywhere.

The novel has good grammar and prose. However, the chapters are extremely short. That means that there is some sort of cliff-hanger every other chapter, and purely skippable "MC went from this room to the other" for the others.

Since the chapters need to have some sort of structure to them, the action feels very fragmented. Once caught up to the latest chapters, it makes for  very unsatisfying reading experience.

Well written, does fall back on a familiar premise, but the story is interesting enough that it does not detract or feel boring, good for any fan of futuristic cultivators

I have read the 1st 43 chapters and am very much engaged and and thoroughly enjoying. I am looking forward to future chapters.I like how the author develops the characters while weaving a suspenseful story.  I cannot wait to find out how Braden and his new powers evolves. Kudos to this 1st time author for a terrific effort.👍

The premise of the story isn't  groundbreaking but it is well executed. At the time of this review, (chapter 47) the story is also still setting up, meaning that it still has a lot of possiblity to develop beyond the basic premise.

As the title suggests, I'm really enjoying your story so far. From the unique Super Hero twist, to the Sci-Fi, and your fairly engaging characters, your doing a smash up job so far! I think the best part for me is that your MC isn't some knowledgable dude who wins everything, but is still for the most part an innocent kid. Makes the story a lot more real. Keep up the great work!

Very cliche in every way and quite boring. Also completely predictable. But the writing is ok, so you might find the fiction passable, if you really like the cultivating genre

Good slice of life read. Plus super powers of course.
