Jin Rou wanted to be a cultivator who defied the heavens, and surpassed all limits.

Unfortunately for him, he died, and now I’m stuck here. Arrogant young masters? Heavenly tribulations? Cultivating for days on end, then getting into life or death battles?

Yeah, no thanks. I'm getting out of here.

In which a transmigrator decides that the only winning move is not to play.

drakan_glasses BE NICE! Fair critique is fair, but be respectful & follow the review rules. There will be no mercy.

Im not a huge fan of cultivation xianxia stories.

The cliches and quirks of the genre didnt grow on me. And the whole cultivation thing was just not my cup of tea.

But the way this story uses these devices just speaks to me. Its very satisfying. Not in the instant gratification kind of way. It builds up to it and pulls through. 


Charles Campbell

This is one of the most well written stories in Royal Road, regardless of genre. If you want a fun and engaging read, this is a good story for you. The characters are distinct, well defined, and engaging. The story is humorous without being over the top. The writing is spot on with so few noticeable errors that the occasional one that pops up the reader hardly notices.


Some typos, but definitely worth the read

Reviewed at: Chapter 44: A Fox and A "Deer"

Really nice and relaxed story line, though there are some typos and sometimes phrases are written in present, making it a bit awkward to read. Don't let that stop you from reading this, it's fun, it's cute, it's relaxing. Character development is nice too, too many times in a Xianxia has the female figure become nothing more than a sleep companion and harem participator, so that was refreshing.

I love the idea of the protagonist wanting to create his own little paradise and living the simple life. However, what frustrates me to no end is the protagonist's willful ignorance. He just absolutely refuses to broaden his knowledge of the world or of even cultivating itself. I get that he wants to live the peaceful life, but to not even wonder about why your animals suddenly turned into spirit? Or why all of a sudden he is so much stronger without doing any standard cultivation techniques? Stuff like this is starting to wear on me. However, it is well written and, again, I like the idea a lot. 


I write this review when, the novel is hovering between 1st and 2nd place in the best rated, so it's already clear it's amazing but I wanted to give my two cents and give it some help.

First of all, the author is putting out chapters everyday and with good quality too. They are maybe a tad short but well within the average here, and longer than some others.

Now, for the novel itself there isn't much to be said that hasn't already but I'll try.

What I believe is the best point is Bi De POV, and the rest of the disciples and people later. Not that Jin POV is bad, but it's really hard to show how amazing one is by his own perspective and the novel got on a whole other level because of them.

The style of the novel is also easy to follow. It doesn't bore you with info dumps and gives the right amount of details you need to enjoy the story. I have yet to find anything to break my immersion.

The story itself is a nice change compared to the usual xianxia novels. I had my doubts in the beginning, since I thought it would get boring fast, but the author surprised me more than once, and now I am convinced it will keep to entertain me for a long time.

For the grammar I can't say anything bad about it, though I'm no expert in the matter.

Characters are well made, and while some are still not well explored he has given them enough "character" that you won't feel any of them are superfluous or "2D". He also does a wonderful job of showing their self growth, worries and difficulties. Another selling point is how likeable as a character Jin is; he has a dream that doesn't require going fighting people left and right, though he's not afraid to defend what he has, he has drive and works hard, and he is competent in what he does and getting better.

Also, Meiling is absolutely adorable.

Go read this story people, it's amazing.


Yay my xianxia fix is filled finally

Reviewed at: Winnie the Poo

Story is a good refreshing take on the genre it has good grammer and writing which makes it refreshing and easy to read. It also is quite funny and the characters are quite good and likeable no real annoyances yet. 

What more could you ask for really I'd recommend it to read. 


I like how the main character acts normal, no killing, no greed for power. It makes for a very interesting read. The wiriting is very fluid, the dialoge is smooth, and the comedy is witty. I find the information on how some of the farm things work very interesting, like how to grow rice. The chicken is the best part. Overall a very nice read and definitly one for the follow list.


Dreaded pressing next chapter

Reviewed at: An Autumn Leaf

The best book on here that I've read in months.

A wonderful mix of slice of life, wry humour and heartfelt character progression.

A complete opposite of every traditional xianxia novel i've read before and I loved it. 

I dreaded pressing next chapter every time I got to the end of a chapter in case it was the last one and I had caught up. 

Looking forward to all continuing releases, thank you very much author.

I'm enjoying it a lot so far. Laid-back vibes with some lighthearted comedy sprinkled in, but still engaging and leaving you wanting for more. Definitely a joy to read if you're looking for something nice and relaxing, I'd recommend it. So far, there hasn't been much in the way of some big plot, only some things brewing on the horizon, so I'm looking forward to that. No grammar issues as far as I can tell. I was surprised to see it near the top of Best Rated with "only" around 10k views, but now I kinda get it, there isn't much to criticize even if it isn't your type of novel imo.


Probably the best chicken-themed book on the site

Reviewed at: Vol 2 Chapter 1: Full Steam Ahead

I started reading this due to confusion - why the hell was there suddenly a chicken book at the top of the best rated section?

Turns out it's a really fucking good chicken book.  Slice of life, but actually wholesome without feeling grindy or meaningless.  Such books often focus on the results and achievements, which leaves the events of the book stretched or empty feeling.  This book revels instead in the simple joys of life, and pulls it off excellently.

Read the first chapter; it'll give you a good idea of if you'll like the book.
