Summary

After being reborn in the ancient times before the Great God-Conferment War, Li Changshou becomes a minor cultivator. He is neither destined for great things nor great woe. His only dream is to live a long life as a cultivator. In order to survive in the cruel Primordial Times, Li Changshou tries hard not to accumulate any karma—killing inevitably leads to feuds.

Thus, he always plans thoroughly before doing anything and never allows himself to walk into dangerous situations. He hides his trump cards well, trains himself in escape techniques, refines poisonous pills, and masters his mystical abilities. Before making any moves, he takes on an extremely steady demeanor. Yet, every move of his ends up earth-shattering. Once he is done, he will disappear without a trace.

Li Changshou originally plans to remain hidden and safe in the mountain. There, he is supposed to cultivate until he ascends to immortality. However, everything changed one year when his master seems to think that their lives are too peaceful… He takes in a junior sister…

This one can pretty simply be summarized as a political cultivation novel. It’s almost entirely plotting with a little bit of cultivation and a dash of wholesome interactions with friends and family. The other reviewer pointed out the two main flaws here: the protagonist is too smart and is ready for literally any possibility and the world setting is horribly explained. I have no idea what’s going on in the novel since I am not familiar with Chinese mythology, and the novel does not make any effort to explain really anything. I’ve heard it described as being similar to Greek mythology, where many English speaking readers are familiar with a lot of the Gods and myths, so they wouldn’t need too much explanation before getting into it. However, it doesn’t go too well for people who don’t know the mythology beforehand. It didn’t stop me from ignoring it and enjoying it chapter to chapter. I just skipped the info dumps and read for a while since it was both wholesome and a fresh take on the genre.

This story about a young disciple hiding his potential, cultivation and with many trump cards could be quite good except for some major flaws.

The keyword here is TOO steady

TOO steady meaning that the MC is always prepared no matter what happens. Why should we be worried or even care about what happens to him when we know that? It's alright in the begining but to have him always think of escape or mention his limitless trump cards is not pleasing. It is boring and sometimes even infuriating.

But this is not the major flaw of this story.

The real problem with this story that will always prevent it from being more than another novel to pass time is the worldbuilding.

I read a ton of different novels and I can say that this book has one of the worst worldbuilding ever made.

First, if you are not familiar with this kind of novel and with chinese mythologie then don't even bother reading it. You will be completely lost. The author expects you to understand and doesn't care if you didn't.

But even if you are familiar with it, like me, don't expect to understand many things when the author suddenly start talking about his world.
No real explanation clear enough to understand this world and its history. Just massive info dumping without any sense as if this kind of knowledge is common.

It's difficult to explain but to resume, it is bad and destroy many situations by making them boring (how to care when we don't even understand what is happening, who is involved and where?) or simply incomprehensible.

In conclusion, this novel is passable with some good parts but you will probably have the furious envy to skip many parts of it to escape the massive nonsense of this world poorly built to return to the more pleasant parts of this story that make it readable and not completely without interest.
