Rise. Rising. Risen.

On a cliff that stood above the world, a young man with skin as pale and pure as ice looked out and into the horizon.
The beautiful yellows, reds and oranges of the morning sky shone without hindrance, dancing over the pristine white clouds below his feet.
This place was known as Shrine Mountain, the highest peak of not just this Plane, but all of existence. It stood so tall that the sun called it friend and even the clouds could only hug its feet.
Throughout the lower planes, millions of geniuses were born everyday, each with the dream of standing at the pinnacle of the world… Each with the dream of sitting in this young man’s very place.

The story starts out really interesting, just like the description says it is. A man on the top of the universe, dealing with a unique problem.
The story hints at some political intrigue and plotting, and a vaster world with Ruins of past cultivation eras to be discovered.
The MC has an interesting romantic interest and shows a strong drive to better himself.
Then he fucking dies and gets reincarnated into a Fourth Prince on a weak world. Like every other cultivation story in the world.
I think it would have been far more interesting if it had stuck with the original plot for the long haul. It was unique, and showed a side of Cultivation stories rarely seen.
This is probably the most true to form English xianxia I've read that doesn't have awful grammar. The characters described in the early chapters are compelling and have a personality, but it's just a smoke screen for the entirely milquetoast sociopath protagonist we get after reincarnation. After the usual milquetoast torture of the protagonist to justify him becoming both even more of a sociopath than he already was and give him a pretext to not care about anyone around him, we hit the milquetoast filler chapters you can mostly skim through as nothing happens while he levels up from 0.1 to 0.2 on a powerscale that stretches to infinity. 11 or so chapters are spent on the character not developing in any meaningful way, but rather throwing out words like meridians and spirit stones and Qi without ever actually stating anything of substance. At some point during this process he decides to dual wield pole arms.
If you'd have told me this was just an exceptionally well localized CN Webnovel, I'd buy that. I'll keep reading it, because I have incredibly low standards when it comes to Xianxia and this story exceeds them easily, but unless you have similar Xianxia standards, you might not get as much out of it.
Not bad, but the pacing is slow for the sake of it, there is no progression and the narrative is political focused, so there is a lot of description about how smart the MC is, how conceited some "villain" is.
still interesting enough if you want to read something, but not good enough to recommend.
I liked the world of Rise. Rising. Risen. by Awespec before the MC got reincarnated. That he or she wrote such a believeable world for the mackstory of the MC makes me believe that the new world will be as good.
This book is quite slow, but it is very detailed and well written. The only shame is the release rate. However, due to the quality of the story i feel that the release rate is reasonable. In conclusion, its overall a great story. Very well written.
It starts out great with the political intrigue but falters a bit after the reincarnation, but if you can get through the early part of the reincarnation parts then there is a perfectly valid reason that makes SO much sense it is great and I love it so much. This is just me singing its praises but I'm only at chapter 58 so it might get worse/better.
My main point is don't get discouraged by the fact that he reincarnates, it all makes sense later.
Pretty enjoyable all in all.
Paragraphs are structured well and grammer is good, with few issues to be found.
The characters (other than the main) are interesting, but dont get a massive amount of screentime. This is understandable considering the mc's situation so not really much of an issue.
Dialogue is well done and the mc's thoughts are clear and concise.
There is not much story yet, but what iv seen so far has been pretty good.
Excellent back story, a good example of the reincarnation genre written well
Nothing more to be said it's a great example of its genre and I'm really looking forward to more
