Fate had never been kind to Ji Ning. Wracked by illnesses and infirm his entire life on Earth, Ji Ning knew early on that he would die as a teenager. What he didn’t know was that there really was such a thing as life after death and that the multiverse was a far larger place than he thought.

A lucky twist of fate meant that Ji Ning was reborn into a world of Immortals and monsters, of Ki Refiners and powerful Fiendgods, a world where Dynasties lasted for millions of years. A world which is both greater… and yet also smaller… than he ever could imagine. He would have the opportunity to join them, and in this life, Ji Ning swore to himself, he would never let himself be weak again! The Era he was born into was a Desolate one, but Ji Ning would make it his era.

    Oh? I remember Guilty3 readings this then for some reason it is badly rated on this site.(2.3stars I think) What happened lol it jumped a lot.

      honestly this novel is pretty good up until around 300 chapters into it. it becomes obvious that authors scaling is f*ck*ng outrageous, like there's 3000 kingdoms and its assumed that the size of the planet is literally 3000 earths size, and then theres at least 15 cultivation realms if not more. its never ending with arrogant young masters, all powerful cultivators that are just servants of other all powerful cultivators etc etc. Ji Ning is a cool *ss mf tho and his powers are the only reason i read so far into it, but its just not worth investing your time in romance also sucks

        To be fair, the scaling in most cultivation book suck and the romance is like 2d.

    i'm in book 14 does ji ning and his primal twin merge or not because i find the concept to be useless.

    The novel was doing good, but at the end of book 38 where he fails his daomerge, the novel started becoming worse from there. The MC despite having sufficient time rushed his daomerge and failed it. But after a few chapters by plot armor he will become more powerful. I though I will read something similar to Top tier providence but this became just trash. The level of plot armor in every stage is too high. At this point there was nothing special about the mc other than him being blessed with PLOT ARMOR

      it ain't plot armor that he became stronger, he understood everything right after but was just slightly too late.

    Well I come to this novel to see if here I can find a true meaning of the cultivation of swords and not what most novels talk about, especially g*rbage, about the cultivation of swords, no author really makes an effort to show what the ART OF THE SWORD. PS: almost none of them have works that deserve recognition, a shame that there are only more or less five.

    This book broaden my horizon... Slow paced MC who truly shows u as long as u lay a solid foundation and temper urself and live ur truth then ur lucky encounters are justified... And no matter what, ur ROOTS are important. 😭this is a cry of finishing such a good book. To me this 💯 and highly recommend... Ji Ning thank u for such a journey

    I’ve had it with this bad flimsy romance. These f*ck head wife. “Ji ning im going to betray you soon and have my soul sent into eternal hell, lets have a baby so one more soul can suffer with us.” I hate this lying b*tch

  • GianCarpio 10

    I dropped long ago does anyone know which chapter MC gets assassinated by someone then it turns out he can fight above his realm?

    I dropped this in volume 19 chapter 10. Absolutely phenomenal book in regards to the power system, the world building was alright and left you wondering what else was out there, and the characters were ok. What really destroyed my interest were a myriad of things. The romance was beyond egregious, the author hates us the readers and the MC. The instances of plot convenience nearly made me spit out blood, sometimes you will wonder if the MC is truly intelligent. I loved the comedy, the humor was one of the things that kept me other than my expectations for Ji Ning. Don’t let my thoughts stop you from reading this, I have my own standard so you should obviously have your own as well. Give it a shot, but be warned this novel just like any has its pros and cons. I hope to continue seeing you all in this endless journey for good literature, see you next time my fellow daoists 🤜🤛

    It was really good but toward to ending it got really silly

  • 1stReader 3

    What's his cheat?

    • TrappedSan 3

      Based on the comments I've read, it seems like you could potentially consider the "insane" plot armor as his advantage.

    • dam_papi 3

      it's been a long time since I've read it but I don't think the mc has a difinitive "cheat" in the beginning he did have the goddess nuwa painting but that can barely be considered a cheat. other then that I think he relied in himself the whole way.
