Neave is no cultivator, and if he can have his way he never will be. His desperate struggle to free himself from his father's grasp eventually leads him to a book. A cursed tome he shouldn't have touched. After being trapped in a hellish time loop for umpteen years, he is finally free.
Oblivious to the horrors he had dragged outside.
Unaware of the apocalypse he would become.

Thus far, the story has followed a young boy, Neave, raised in a cultivator sect, who undergoes a hellish time-loop experience that leaves him very powerful and a little unhinged. However, as suggested by the synopsis, the loop is more prelude than actual story. This makes an early review somewhat difficult.
The time-loop arc is well-executed. Neave undergoes fairly drastic character changes, but they are spread out over a dozen chapters and read as a natural, even inevitable consequence of his circumstances. The action scenes are exciting. While Neave ends up a little crazy, he isn't sociopathic or anything, which is a far too common trope among TR stories.
Only a few chapters have been written outside the loop so far, but they are promising. Various secondary characters have gotten glimmers of backstory and development even these few action-packed chapters, and it seems the author has given some thought to the wider world. Neave is very powerful but not overwhelmingly so, giving opportunities for meaningful conflicts.
If you enjoyed The Menocht Loop (before the MC fucked off of the mortal plane and the story went to shit), then this story seems to have a similar structure, depth, and high quality of writing. I recommend it if you enjoy any RR cultivation stories, although if you're in it solely for the time-loop then you'll be disappointed.
A lot of character development in a "relatively" short time frame but well fleshed out.
You really feel the insanity building while reading the nether arc.
I think there was a lot of potential to be had in the zithorn sect that wasnt developed and maven development was barebone but It reads as a light novel should.
Another avid reader *chained* to this webnovel. Binged in 2 days.
With love, and until the next chapter
I don't generally write reviews, and this won't be much of one - I just wanted to say that I'm disappointed in where this went after the first book. The time loop was very well written in general, and while the parts before and after had issues, it was still in the realm of a good rewrite with an editor fixing it. Unfortunately the second book is one of the largest drops I've seen in a while. With the character by chapter three using memes as jokes, behaving similarly to a social media influencer. There's no explanation given for it, it makes no sense in context, it doesn't follow from his prior behavior.
I suppose all I can say is that if the author maintained the level of writing seen in the time loop section, this would be among the best stories on the site. As is, I can only encourage them to write more such in the future.
As I read the first chapter I fell in love with this book, lol, you hardly find good, well written, time loop stories out there but this one has it. The characters have depth and personality which is rare for a cultivation novel, they are understandable and even relatable in some cases. The world itself is done just right, you are given information but not too much information, it leaves you with an idea and a need to know more. Overall, I'm enjoying this and look forward for more exciting and interesting content.
This is one of these novels where the quality of the writing is a step above what I normally expect from these webnovels, and usually that means it only updates weekly.
This novel somehow is that good with daily updates.
About the story:
The premise and source of power for the protagonist was really well done. Sometimes it's just one or two chapters in the beginning of these kinds of novels but here the novel spends a lot of time actually establishing the gravity of the situation and why it is that traumatic.
As for the rest, the slight madness results in a protagonist that, in my opinion, is acting really cool but still does unexpected stuff because of his madness.
Fun , To much Fun .
Mc is a Whinny mortal . Yet he found a book make him experience death million times but open him endless possibilities. Also this should how a Loop Novel be written : Trials, Error , Error, Error ×3,14 ...Success ,F*cking Harder Trials...
Although many Keep complain about mc personality (like his EarthCore like Early Stubborness) , I thought that was okay for me.
Others characters (Except the Father) is mostly obscured due to little screen time. Ps: Father Shines and very Well Written, im glad for that So the Others.
The cultivation path here seem diff and that a Plus.
So It up to u to enjoy this wonderful piece your self . I hope this wacky review of mine help. TFTC !!!!🌋🌋🌋🔥⚡️💧❄️
I'm writing this review as of book 2 chapter 2. The book is oozing with potential, the bits of lore we've read so far have me hooked and the power system has me wanting more. I love how unhinged neave is, and the supporting cast is chefs kiss. They provide a great range of reactions to neaves actions and story. Bravo author! I can't wait to read more.
i mean mad in a literal sense, the main character is quite insane. still a great story so far, thanks to a very well done time-looping arc, as well as some very intense and gritty battles. i'm not too sure where the story goes from here back in cultivatorland, which honestly makes it all the more engaging. plot progression is good. no issues with syntax or grammer. overall, worth reading.
I quite enjoyed book one for the most part. The time loop sequence that takes up most of the story here was very entertaining. Even once they left the loop, the larger world building was interesting and engaging. Unfortunately, once the character left the loop and began to demonstrate what would I suspect the title of the book hinted at, I was left at somewhat of a loss. The character seemed insane, but not in a good way. The joker is mad but he operates within the bounds of logic. I didn't understand why the main character was doing most of the things he was doing through much of the final arc of book 1, and while that felt intentional based on the events, it also felt very unsatisfying. Truly mad people doing insane things for no discernible reason doesn't make for great reading. The rest of the story was a 5/5 for me, so unsure ending drops it to a 4.5.
The story starts at a decent pace and the entire loop section was enjoyable to read, but the raise in power level of the MC when he exits is so ridiculous that the only solution is to just crank the power levels of the opponents he is facing to the point of insanity (especially since the MC is continuing to gain extra power from non-standard sources). Maybe if you like that sort of thing then you'll enjoy it, but it was quickly becoming evident towards the tail end that things were going too quickly for the authour to keep a lid on things.
