Journey of the Immortal Grandmaster

Journey of the Immortal Grandmaster

by This_one_

Who is able to resist the allure of the cultivation world? The world where individuals can fly on their swords, crush mountains with a wave of the hand, dry up seas with another, and most importantly, have a chance to reach immortality?

Han Lingyun was certainly not planning on refusing the outstretched hand he had been offered. His conviction had only strengthened after the young boy had regained his previous life’s memories as a famous mathematician. The pain of death was still etched deeply in his soul, the futility of a mortal’s body.
But now Han Lingyun had found his hope to satiate his constant thirst for knowledge, his desire to uncover the laws of the world, his fascination for the universe.


Follow Han Lingyun as he embarks on a mythical journey to reach immortality. One step at a time, he leverages his brilliant mind while staying true to his cautious and calculative nature in order to weave his way through the many pitfalls of this unforgiving world.

When you see the name captain lacroix and cringey boot camp song. You will know you shouldn't kept your expectations up. There are a lot that can be nitpicked, like seriously a lot. But here I only focus on the major problem that I see. Lazy faux pas.

It became glaringly apparent that the author had been too lazy to do some research about his story theme, and have only known very shallow understanding of eastern - oriental culture from xianxia/wuxia. Problem is, he tried to filled the gap in his knowledge by forcibly mixing western culture inside it. It gets cringy af.

It could've been better if the author just "borrow" and not "adopt" xianxia concept. Just like Defiance of the Fall's author did, he borrowed the concept and then molded it into his own story. A story with xianxia concept but in western minded style, and damn it worked. Because he just BORROW the concept and then built his own story from the building framework. Now imagine Chinese Buddhist temple, instead of a Buddha statue it has Elvis Presley statue standing on top of its altar. How cringy weird af that is?

The only thing the author did good is he didn't made a too really weird Chinese names for his characters. Except the ugly duck sect, yeah he named one of the top tier sect an ugly duck 😂🤣

One of the better cultivation novels

Reviewed at: 23- Business

This is one of the better cultivation novels. It's a classic cultivation novel but the mc is actually smart. I never thought id see the day. But, as like most cultivation novels, the combat can't compare to most novels on this website. The fight scenes aren't written well, but I could push past that and am thoroughly enjoying the novel. There's a ton of chapters to binge read as well so you might as well read it.

overall: it's a fun novel with its flaws but still very enjoyable.

Another reincarnation story of dubious prospects? Hmm let's read the first chapter and see if the mc isn't a nihilistic incel. Its on the rising part of royal road might be promising.

Not even 1k words in: "humans are but specks of dust" sighs dramatically. God dammit its another one of these. You know what I'm talking about. Go reread azarinth or borne of caution again I guess

While I appreciated the math aspect, the story fell a bit short in every other apect...

This is a typical cultivation novel with all the cultivation and numerous tournaments we all already know and appreciate, but there is no real drive or novel concept (about the cultivation genre in general) behind the story to surprise the reader and get him hooked to the story... 

The MC cultivates to get stronger to increase the mcs survivability and to sometime in the future be free to explore the universe... 

There are some nice character interactions, still it felt quite silly sometimes because you have to keep in mind, that the mc and his compatriots are mainly 10 - 12 years old (in a world where humans usually grow up like In our universe) but get treated and interact like adults. I like that I don't have to read child drama but it takes away from the immersion ...

And sometimes it's not very well justified why this universe is how it is:

Why do all the new disciples adapt to the cultivation world without problems? Is it the qi or does the mc just have a very very sheltered childhood and usually the life of the peasantry is absolutely terrible? Because you have to keep in mind that this universe produces child soldiers without end and is not afraid to use them anywhere, from the typical escorts mission where one unlucky bandit encounter can kill them to the assassination mission of important figures in the world of non cultivators ... And nobody questions this... not the children who get thrown into this situation and also not the non cultivators who on the one side don't have any idea what the cultivation world is about (the Mcs father is a professor and still doesn't know shit), but on the other side should be interacting a lot with these 10 year olds running around with superhuman capabilities on some random sect mission all over the empire...

If this story continues like it does at the moment it will probably need hundreds of chapters more (that's not a bad thing), but that also means that a lot is not yet told/explained so take my review with a grain of salt ^^

Too much exposition

Reviewed at: 53- Water

There's some good stuff here. The mathematician backstory is sold well enough. I really enjoy the tidbitts of math history blended with the fantastic. If there was more of that told through story instead of exposition, it'd be quite good. Interaction between characters, when it happens, is pretty good. There's just far too much explain and re-explaining. However, that is true to the xianxia form (minus getting payed by the word).
