Crossing The Divide

by SillyIslandBum

Original HIATUS Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy Magic Male Lead Martial Arts Multiple Lead Characters Strong Lead Xianxia

The system of 18 – Nine Heavens and Nine Hells  – separate the Mortal Realm from the Eternal. Failing to reach true immortality, an old man must go back to his birthplace in search of his only hope forward. During his journey, he saves a young boy named Liang from a nefarious poison and meets an ambitious girl named Xu Wei, who uses her talent and good looks to advance in a dangerous world.

With goals of immortality, revenge, and absolute knowledge, the three unlikely companions set off on a journey fraught with endless danger, excitement, and countless new experiences. As they face each of the challenges in the myriad worlds, the old man, Liang, and Xu Wei will team up to break through the shackles of the Mortal Realms and burst through to the Eternal, by crossing The Divide.

***** 

Crossing The Divide is a Xianxia, but at the same time, it is not. As the synopsis says, the three main characters will face challenges in a number of worlds. The first volume is primarily a standard eastern fantasy world, but each world is different, and they are not just a continuation of stronger realms or other typical Xianxia tropes. There will be both advanced and primitive civilizations along their journey, and to reach their goal, they will need to face all the challenges each world presents.  

*****

2-3 chapters/week unless there is a major holiday.

This is a Wuxia novel with all of the usual Wuxia parts, except the main character isn't really the scrappy young upstart seeking power.  It's his awful master.  Think Cultivation Rick and Morty.

That said, there are some continuity and tone issues early on- I think that the book could very much do with a touch up of the first 5ish chapters to tighten the up.  It very much becomes worth it after that.  I was going to give this novel 3.5 stars until I got to about chapter 6-7 at which point it picked up and stayed up.
