Note :  I read this book on Wuxiaworld, hence if the original book source differs, feel free to comment down and it'd update the information.

Let me begin this with a piece of warning. This book already has 485 chapters and possibly more if someone reads this review later. It's an ongoing book on Wuxiaworld with a new chapter published every month. So that being only major con, if you can let that 'ongoing' tag go and enjoy the book's already uploaded chapters then this review will be worth reading for you.

So, I was just randomly looking for some new good stuff to watch and stumbled upon anime version of this series. The anime was of 5 mins each, like seriously?! Phew! Anyway, I still enjoyed the anime so much I decided to take a look if it was based on some book. So guess what? I googled and stumbled upon link to the goodness of the textual realm. ( I am someone who prefers books over movies :P ). Anyway, I decided to get reading from where the story had stopped in anime and damn! I enjoyed this one so much I decided to give it a review even when this one is an ongoing book and the chapter rate is horrible at one chap per month. ( If you know me, you'd know how much of a big deal it is for me to get reading onto such a book.) Well, to be fair enough, 485 chapters are a good enough amount to read hence, I started reading.

Where do I begin with? If I want to summarise it in one line then you can say it is like a 'Rajnikanth' movie story. The character building, world building is super complex and amazing. I loved the new concepts. Even after being a fantasy, everything was really well built and everything had a really good logical reasoning. It was really hard to find issues in the plot unless I really start being a crappy person and nit picked on everything. I'd say just give this book a try. Only huge con being you'd have to wait very long for the updates.

The plot is fantasy based with a lot of teen fiction, gamer, spiritual influence over it. It's most probably adventure based plotline in terms of how the story progresses. I won't reveal much about the story and I'd just recommend reading it. I wish the anime was much longer in terms of duration and was released faster. I can only hope though because even though I read this, I'd really want to see the visualisations. I'd recommend watching those episodes before watching as it'll give you an actual idea of how things are in this universe as the descriptions aren't really strong point of this story.

One more thing that I noticed was that the author was probably getting stagnant with the plot ideas as everything felt recursive. Although there were minor changes here and there but the major plotline after 300 chapters started to feel the same. Remember, I said 'same' not 'boring'. Well, I ended up reading all 485 chapters in less than 3 days and it was a great read. Especially when there's quarantine emphasis all around you.
