Every great story begins in tragedy…
A story of true heroes, forged through hardship…
A story of a world thrown in turmoil…
A story of heroes, battling the forces of evil…
However, every great story has a humble beginning.
In the Ancient Times, the world was in turmoil. Only through the efforts of a martial hero, wielding the Flaming Medallion and the Heavenly Sword, was the Dark Lord slain.
Now, eight hundred thousand years have passed…
Yang Jing, a disciple of the Order of Heaven, dies on a mission. However, he finds no rest after death. Reincarnating into the body of Cheng Yuan, a mere mortal, will he recover his martial prowess, or is there a deeper meaning to his reincarnation?
Will he answer the call of a world thrown into turmoil? To follow in the footsteps of those before him, and defeat the Dark Lord once and for all?

I've really, really enjoyed what I've read so far. The only reason why I'm giving it 4 1/2 stars instead of 5, is due to the fact that the flow of the writing can sometimes break a little, due to the author's rigid writing style. This breaks my immersion, which I don't like. However, now that we've gotten the bad stuff out of the way, let's get to the good stuff.
The story is set in ancient China, which is common in Chinese dramas. In fact, it follows the setup of a Chinese drama very consistently throughout the story, which I like. The author has obviously put a lot of thought into the settings. The author's writing style tends to switch from scene to scene very quickly, which I honestly don't think is a problem. In fact, since I don't have a very long attention span, helps to keep me engaged. The dialogue can be a little questionable (character based) at times, but I think overall, it really adds to the character. The storyline is quite interesting, and progression stories like this have always caught my attention.
Overall, maybe I just haven't read many of these kind of books, but I really enjoyed what I've read so far and am looking forward to reading more. Great for a light read. Congrats! You've just got your third follower!
