Not all fates are created equal...




Kenji’s only dream in life is to become a great rebirther like his father. But with no talent for the mystic arts, the age old tradition of cultivating essence by returning things to their newborn state, to grow a second and third time, is far beyond his grasp.

Worse still, he is yet to be rebirthed himself and stands a dullard of a giant among his diminutive peers. Relegated to working the orchards as a common laborer, Kenji settles into a life of lowered expectations; with no chance for advancement and no chance of pursuing the girl he loves.

But when a mystic warrior from a distant land enters his village, pursued by a powerful demon, Kenji discovers a truth within himself that will not only question who he is, but perhaps everything he can become...

A promising start at a handful of chapters into the story. A sense of the world already in place, with the characters clearly established. Now it's time for the meat of the story.

What must it be like to live among those who are functional immortals, knowing that if you are unable to cultivate and attain the necessary level, you'll grow old and die?

What abilities do rival clans and sects possess? If this is REDACTED magic, what else can they achieve?

Looking forward to learn more.

If you enjoy wuxia and xianxia, this is it.

Great story. Excellent characters, nice plot twists. I can feel the urgency the mc is going through  and I'm  glad he's not getting his op powers too fast, although  i also want him to get it asap . Im eager to see how it pans out.

The Cultivation of Rebirth

I am a fan of Cultivation Novels and this is one I would recommend.

The characters are interesting and I am forming a connection with them.  I always find this to be good in a story, if you form a connection with characters what happens to them becomes much more important drawing you in.

The story itself is interesting and I can see a lot of promise with it.

Interesting concept, well written

This story starts out kind of slow, the reader knows from reading the synopsis that there is something special about the MC, but it isn't revealed until the late teen chapters. This does leave room for the world building to be fairly comprehensive and by that point, you can already understand the dangers to the MC and why his power has been kept secret. 

The grammar is great and doesn't detract from the story at all; as far as I can tell on a first read through without looking for mistakes, there have been few to none. 

The character relationships are surprisingly a little shallow. You have the typical teen rival, the potential love interest, and a mentor of sorts, but each of these relationships is sort of thrown into your face like "here, this is x" and it feels abrupt. 

There are multiple major plot points where the MC is saved by plot armour, so if you dont like plot armour and prefer your stories more organic, this may not be the one for you. 

Now, onto the MC himself. He has been told all his life that he is essentially worthless and a dullard, so it comes as no surprise that he is, well, a little stupid. But he does have shining moments of ingenuity, so you can tell that he will grow in maturity quite quickly now that he knows the truth. 

I would recommend reading this story due to the interesting concept, it is a great opener to the cultivation subgenre and, as of this moment, looks to be a good ongoing series.
