I might be bias here since it is the first cultivation novel I have read, the novel might be your typical standard xianxia it is still decent enough especially for beginner readers it is probably the best novel to start with.

A lot of these reviews seem to think that MW and TMW (the hugely popular sequel to MW) are the same. Very similar MCs, similar plot, and it is by the same author so naturally it has the same writing style too. And they are right, at the surface level they are the same. However they are important differences that one might not notice at a first glance.

Lets start with MCs, btw this will contain minor spoilers for the 2 chapters of TMW (True Martial World) so if you


havent read TMW I dont know why you would read this review, but you have been warned. Yi Yun, the MC ends up stuck in a cave and finds this purple crystal card and it transmigrates his soul into the body of a boy in another world thus beginning the story of true martial world. Now this is important, because it is why Yi Yun and Lin Ming are fundamentally different characters. Yi Yun being thrown into this new world with no memories (a twist to the new world trope) is forced to figure things out as he goes along and ultimately develops the mentality of a wanderer, and you can see that completely in the way he acts in the current arc of TMW. Where as Lin Ming is born and raised in his world, and thus shaped by it. This creates a rather unique contrast between the two. While Lin Ming is not the same as the cookie cutter young masters be offends or fights, he still allows himself to be pulled into their pace and play their games. Although he beats them at their game, he is still drawn in. Yi Yun is quite different, he is trickster. He never plays a full hand, he is a true wolf in sheeps clothing. It is quite fun to watch, he purposely baits people into ridiculous circumstances only for him to come out on top with only gains. He is cunning and manipulative. Lin Ming is much more straight forward and to the point. Not to say that he is less intelligent, it is just not his nature. Another difference is how they approach and view martial arts, the martial way, wudao, etc.

Lin Ming only sees the martial way, while he seeks strength, strength comes with his progress and thus it is just a secondary to him. Yi Yun pursues strength, he wants to see the pinnacle of strength and thus goes about this using martial arts. Now keep in mind there is no right answer in how you go about this, but they are not the same. What Yi Yun is doing is comparable to mountian climbing, while what Lin Ming is doing is akin to hiking. While a mountain climber enjoys the whole climb, they ultimately have the end goal of reaching the summit. And that is the most important part. While hiking is different. While the route has a end, the goal is not to reach the end but rather to enjoy the hike along the way. That is the difference here, and it manifests itself in these characters. And dont get me wrong, I am not saying Lin Ming doesnt want to be strong, nor am I saying Yi Yun doesnt value martial arts. But just take a look at how these two characters deal with their adversaries. And you will see the difference. Now I could go on and on, but I have stated my opinion. Whether you want to take at face value or not is your choice.

Also I forgot to mention, this author really has issues with pacing, where he is either on point, or completely f*cking with the reader. So at times in either story, things drag-on for a bit. I noticed this less in MW, simply because we get more chapters daily. But once you are caught up with either of them, you might not enjoy where you are left off. Other than that, MW is really soild.

And if you have made it this far and have no clue what I am referring to that probably means you havent read TMW. In that case I suggest you not only read this, but you read TMW as well.

The story proceeds relatively fast as Lin Ming overcomes all sorts of difficulties on his route to the peak of martial arts with the Demon Cube in hand. There are some slowdowns in the plot throughout this massive piece of work, but the overall structure is amazing. The trouble Lin Ming encounters due to his enemies is filled with adrenaline as he tries to evade capture, and eventually be able to turn the tables.

The authors plot creation is excellent and hard to guess until it is eventually revealed. The major


mysteries in the story only begins after chapter 500. Throughout the story, there are touching moments and good romance. All characters and items are accounted for by the end of the story, which makes the story feel very well-balanced.

I would like to say there is something good to find in this story, but it is not really a story in the first place. It is more like the author was trying to write about how awesome a character is, and the story is just a medium to do it. Yes, Lin Ming is the most level-headed, intelligent, filial, and concerning friend/lover/son/father that has ever existed, and thats it. Thats the story. For the story to take place, or progress, the main character must


be present. One can see this in multiple points, Ive listed a few, which together, create a very shady pattern.

MC returning from the demon continent. Arguably the circumstances have changed, but the story and characters have essentially frozen in order for MC to make it in time to save them. Lucky.

The original love interest of MC, she is sacrificed as a kamikaze to fight the demonic horde, but like a good neighbor Lin Ming is there, he solves the situation in 5minutes and heads over to her and saves her at the last moment.

MC saves lady in duress, her uncles were in the final steps of stealing her inheritance.

MC saves second love interest from being r*ped, at such a convenient record its amazing. MC fakes his own death, THEN, conveniently manages to save his love interest. Worst of all, there was a time limit for this event! Lin Ming luckily escaped at the moment before his friends were murdered. Convenient again.

The story is just a convenient way to show off the MC in many situations and how awesome he is. But, the most ironic part is that the MC isnt even that great, everyone else is just a bunch of neanderthals. The Old men and women who have lived for countless years dont have the basic reasoning of a child, and are suicidal enough to fight even though they know they will die, young masters with huge backings, so-and-so coveting MCs treasures/grills, and,

, this is the best one, people failing to recognize the

of the MC. The author will purposely mention these people saying: Oh! Wow! Such talent, but it is impossible for him to succeed against X!, Wow! MC can surpass a whole realm of cultivation! But he does not have a triple-omnisexual-dragon violet dantian, like the most famous elders under the heavens!. The crowd will have you cringing for the entire chapter (because they are there for every other paragraph), and then, once the MC succeeds, the crowd raves again: Wow! An unsurpassed talent! Never seen before for hundred thousand years, since [ insert insignificant historical cultivator ]! As if their reactions are worth something to the MC or the story, the only reason they are there is for us, the readers to go: How foolish! Of course he is the best!, simple wish fulfillment. Get to feel like the underdog who proved everyone wrong.

Im not going to go into detail about what I think about the propagating events. They are shamelessly vague due to the lack of brainstorming that goes into them. The simple answer for this, which I find true to be of all novels, but more for some than for others, is that the plot demanded it. The most laughable but sad part was when the Author introduced Destiny. I laughed. But, it wasnt a happy laugh, it was the sort of pitying laugh you would give when you see an ambitious kid drop out of high school to get into the workforce early and fill in the manager positions. All authors do this, but only the most s*upid of them would actually manifest it in their story. The so called Destiny of the MC is just the physical manifestation of the plot in the MC, he cant die, lose control, be the bad guy, or mature. He is a stale template character for a stale template world, in which all characters and events are equally worthless because of the lack of thought that goes into them. The Author is a wreck, maybe Im not getting it due to my background, but my basic comprehension skills tell me that the Author would rather be focused on what the next crowd is going to say rather than creating a deep, meaningful story.

I have been reading this story for the lulz. But, today I have had enough, reading something to pick out flaws isnt good for the mind. Neither is chugging down paragraphs upon paragraphs of wish fulfillment.

Too many beauties who take interest in MC. Beauties that brings problem and opportunity just to have a plot. Other than various annoying schemes, unending competitions and uplifting MCs awesomeness there is no deep plot in this novel.

The MC is one of those very rare level headed person that appear once in every then thousand Xianxia, while he isnt a wimp, he definitely separate himself from the more idiotic of his kind who thinks a regional genocide in the morning goes well with his OJ.

The side characters so far arent very well developed but it is still early given that there is thousands of chapter to this story and were barely 1/10th of the way into it.

One word gangbang - primordial yin.... virginity... r*pe - every character who has beef with the MC is a rapist or have thoughts of raping n plundering primordial yin of women close to MC.

Cultivation is like A.I.D.S where ppl f*ck one another & they gain super natural powers minus the negative side effects of A.I.D.S. Girls be like, take my primordial yin n


defeat that bastard. Only thing in this novel matters is primordial yin.

Even in the middle of fighting, MC finds the time to bang a chick as author suddenly thought about the grave mistake, he made by making a female character look stronger.

Suddenly xiao moxian- super ultra talent, ranked 4 in the whole universe, had the urge to have s*x with MC to have him make the breakthrough in between the fight by letting him plunder her virginity.

This term primordial yin... virginity n r*pe are the most used & the only words in authors dictionary. U will slap urself after reading this garbage. Though ull skip most of the arcs like me to get to the main matter.

Let me explain (beware of some minor teasers) : initially novel started out pretty well with a generic story of a weak boy neglected by everyone who stumbles upon the most powerful treasure in the universe. Even his gf end up betraying him initially with tr*sh card hanging around his neck.

After gaining the treasure, story becomes slightly more interesting n u might end up reading 100 chapters without skipping. But soon after tr*sh follows-

1) height of shock :From the very start, every idiot, tr*sh, brain dead n whatnot villian knows that MC is a super rare genius who can fight above levels and has fastest cultivation pace that might leave even bullet train run for its money. But even after knowing that, brain dead phenomenon kicks in n he/she somehow offends MC.

V (in super ultra absolute shock) : omg! He stood my super rare ultra badass killer psychopath sociopath demon slaughter god sucker second move.

(Im leaving out the audience reaction which are even bizzare as their shock run parallel to MCs breathing n goes something like this: omg! Look this person can breathe through nose. Kya!! Hes god n we now are linmaniacs) MCs name is lin something.

2) level of patience: actually ull find the villians being the good guys. Theyre known for r*pe, slaughter etc... but every villian suffers from this same patience level sickness. They want to kill MC but waits for him to grow. They plan raping, killing, hacking, humiliating the MCs family n friends but keeps on using excuses not to do it until MC returns. No matter the time span theyll wait to execute their plans until MCs on the horizon. Even the top cultivators would wait even though theyre being shown as vicious killers. Waiting.. waiting n waiting till they die of old age or MC remebers to kill them. Eg would be good I guess: divine sea powerhouses (most powerful cultivator in MCs homeworld) would wait for years while detaining mcs mortal distant relatives n not doing anything to them (some have just fingers choped off). Suddenly one afternoon MC appears n villians be like lets r*pe n kill as hes not coming anymore n weve waited enough (subconsciously playing the first to die character role as sixth sense tells them that mcs is hiding in the closet).

3) Random characters : there are one trillion random side character whose sole role is to become stepping stone for MC n zero contribution to the story.

Author tries a weighing formula, he introduces characters out of his ass as some important person who will play some indispensable role but every character is a disappointment n forgotten in the next couple of paragraphs.

Starting from MCs: hes there for the sake of being there with no personality. His fav. Monologue -- u want to kill but should I stick my neck out for u to kill me? Wait, till I kill u.

MC has no friends, no lover, no rival, no rolemodel, no subordinate etc.. he has fake respect for those higher than him n contempt for those who are lower.

Author tries to make look MC as a social person but every chracter who tries to have friendship with MC, has ulterior motives... infact author himself goes to extreme pains to clarify this point.

Author like always tries to pull something out of his ass, such as making the love interests as something unattainable in the future, ppl can only masturbate in their dreams n can never lay their hands on them.

Every love interests is introduced as aloof, high birth, super ultra rare heaven defying fap material with extremely high talent which MC can never have. No man has ever even breathe the same air as the love interests n they are only interested to soar higher in the cultivation world.

50 chapter later... their talent is tr*sh compared to MC, they would be totally dependent on MC even to do smallest of things, they will not have any dreams, wishes, desires, will etc... apart from serving MC wholeheartedly. Theyll even struggle to level up without the help of MC. They be like s*x s*aves who has no purpose apart from taking care of MCs need n his parents. Theyll no longer be haughty, cold or icy as s*x s*aves have no emotions. Their only redeeming point was their virginity n being the wife of MC. Their status as saintess or 1000 year talent is just for marrying MC so that they doesnt appear to be some random character. Theyll be like porcelain doll with high cultivation but zero experience at anything.

VILLIANs: millions will be there but they serve no purpose except setting as bar which MC has use as dildo. Even after 500 chapter ull find the same thing going on with nothing to miss.

They only have one thing in common i.e sex, r*pe, harem, lust..................... fill the list urself. Every character that appears either has already r*ped some girl or is planning on raping....

The author puts a dildo in his ass n kills the characters that has some potential as this is a story for another time. Thats how he put ends to loose ends.

P.s. I forgot onething. Authors introduces other chracters as super high ultra...... type genius who just like MC can skip levels n can kill the higher cultivation dolts but infront of MC, the shock level increases so much that they kinda forget jumping levels or using super rare ultra talent that they have.

Initially in the story authortalks about talent as something which cant be ignored but in front of MC, talent be like the dead snake which can beaten up whenever a side character gains some importance...

Audience member 2: humph... side character A with his level 7 talent is just plain tr*sh, thus hardwork n MCs mommy luck is better than anything called talent.

800 Chapters read... and Im finally dropping this novel. I simply dont have the heart to go through with reading the same plot points over and over and over and over again. The young masters are arrogant. The patriarchs are unable to see reason. The MCs neck must be stretched out on the chopping block, but his opponents cannot be. The beautiful women could cause the downfall of many kingdoms. The essence is revolved to its limit, breakthroughs are made in the nick of time, and the MC never fails.


The MC is going to be killed, and then he kills, and then hes *really* going to be killed, and then he kills, and then hes courting death, and then he kills, and then theres nobody left so he moves on....

Dont get me wrong: I can take this to an extent, but for this novel I really feel like the author is simply doing a copy-paste with the same scenarios and dialogue but with different scenery. I read through Coiling Dragon. Im reading Desolate Era, I Shall Seal the Heavens, and Skyfire Avenue. Every one of those novels has something unique to them that keeps me interested. This novel just feels so... boring.

If youre looking for a novel simply to pass the time with, then have at it. If you want a novel thats has its own unique experiences, or pushes the genre in any way, then look elsewhere.

Wow, 1328 chapters but I only gave 3 stars?! Yep. Its a decent read, but if you find yourself bored by what is essentially standard fare Xanxia, then you can probably figure the next 1000 chapters after reading the first 50. I do enjoy it to some extent, but by no means would I rate this higher than 3 stars. It really is just OK.

The critical problem with this book is pacing. Ive been able to slog through the slow parts so far, but it seems as the story gets


the writer adds via pointless details.

Lin Ming silently glanced around. It was dark. It wasnt smelly out here, but there were nights you could taste the rancor. He slowly dragged the overly-full tr*sh bag out to the curb. *Riiip!!* The sound seemed to echo around the alley as rotten tr*sh spewed grotesquely onto the sidewalk.

****! Lin Ming swore loudly. His killing intent locked onto the tr*sh bag.

After several minutes of seething anger, Lin Mings rage subsided, allowing him to properly assess the situation. He carefully bent down while avoiding the broken shards of used Blood Demon Bones. As he began to clean up the mess, suddenly, the bag tore again! Even more garbage was discharged onto the pavement.

Who makes such awful tr*sh bags? Ugh! Its not the first time either. I bet this is from one of those 3rd rate tribes. Made in Chinuh or something. Godd**n commie cultivators! Lin Ming complained.

Certainly, this was not the first time. Last week, Lin Ming had a Garbage Bag of Holding explode while he was exiting the building. It had gotten caught on the fire escape, which punctured the array seal. The results were not pretty. Several days thereafter, the entire enforcement team was on their hands and knees picking up the aftermath. It was simply too dangerous to pick up a cultivators tr*sh with skills or techniques.

Lin Ming mused about his previous experience, considering whether he should go back to Garbage Bags of Holding. Perhaps he could add additional reinforcement on each one. That would be far cheaper than reinforcing the cheap plastic of this bag.

When he was just nearly finished, his perception caught a slight True Essence fluctuation nearby.

What ? The next instant, a damaged array symbol inside the remaining tr*sh activated!

Burning tr*sh splattered the walls, the windows, and most unfortunately, Lin Ming himself. More flaming garbage rained down from the sky, covering everything in sight.

Tonight was going to be a long night.

This story has some major flaws. It starts with the fact that the author needed to add words into the story so you will have repetition of the same things over and over and over again. There are whole chapters that any decent writer would just drop. Sometimes I would skip 2-3 chapters and not miss a single thing. The next issue is that the MC just stumbles from one lucky encounter to the next. Its a typical wish fulfillment novel. The MC is a marry sue type character that


is all powerful with no flaws. This tends to make the story predictable and boring. The last issue I will mention is how poorly written the antagonists are. It has the typical problem with Xianxia stories that the MC will have issues with one person, that person then looks down on the MC gets beaten, but to make it alright to beat him up to the degree the MC does, he of course has moral problems, like being a super rapist, wanting to kill his family, and so on and so forth. They are all 2 dimensional characters with no depth.

Basically the story was never boring for me when I read it, I say this because, I read quite few novels in which I need to take a break like couple of weeks to complete 50 chapters or so and few novels in which at first even though interesting but later feel boring in which MC kills every one relentlessly. This one even though it has killings but with a meaning in which there wont be many guys who purposefully provokes MC or such. There is a lot of character development for MC but regarding female characters once their story finishes later they were just mentioned along the line (out of 4 mainly 1 is important along with MC and the 2nd is in hand with MC up to some point but still not much as the previous girl.

The later 2 wifes no need to bother). Story construction is good the author writes it up skillfully even though the ending fight was a bit rushed and was kinda like unfinished since not a proper ending were MC still need to get stronger even though he defeats the enemy so that he could fulfill his two goals/wishes. I think he would definitely make a appearance in TMW but in later parts of the story I guess, from what I have seen MC in MW progression in strength is a bit faster than the MC of TMW (even though he has purple card).

Please read this story to the end may not be a epic one for all but a good read. In this novel things about those three artifacts are explained well where as in TMW they didnt explain it at all. In MW the demon bead and magical cube had great importance but no appearance of purple card to MC, but in TMW only purple card is focused.

Completed it about two years ago. One of the best weak to strong type of novels out there. It has very deep and touching romance in later half (even though romance with girls from lower world is underdeveloped, but two harem members from higher world have best romance development I ever read in this type of novel) as well as some very interesting plot twists (again in later half). It have very consistent power levels and world building (compared for example to such popular novels like ISSTH and AWE or


TTNH in which levels of power often inconsistent) except some minor details main of which is the fact what author sometimes introduce some new system and then her either forget about it, or it becomes irrelevant very soon, or it re-emerges only much later, this is usual thing for this type of novels though. There wasnt any turn-off moments like MC raping someone or slaughtering clan including innocent people in it. Some people dislike how there is often people to be amazed by how cool MC is, but I think this is important part of get stronger novel - Im much more annoyed when no one could see what MC is super genius and treat him like they treat anyone else. For example in A Will Eternal (a little spoiler for AWE, DONT READ if you afraid of even minor spoilers) we could see what Bai Xiaochun is absolute genius, he is youngest Deva ever who could fight above his level and still he is treated like any other person of similar cultivation and no one could see his potential which is above Celestial, lol. In this novel there wouldnt be such a thing - when MC shows his talents everyone acknowledge it and shocked as they should be.

Overall this is one of the best become strong in one place and then go to other place and become stronger there until you are strongest type of novel which introduce some interesting plots closer to end and that is rare for this type of novel (usually ending is either too rushed or anticlimactic).

One of my favorites right now. In fact I like it so much that it actually rekindled my drive to read new novels after spending months only keeping up with 3 or 4 without reading anything new. I love that its fast paced yet still remains slow and detailed without too much skipping around. Its nice seeing him slowly getting stronger although in the most recent chapters the pace has changed to a large degree and he skipped some levels completely which I dont like since it made certain things


like the fight with the strongest disciple kinda pointless, but its not a big deal and hopefully it was a one time thing from the author.

Hmm, where to start. This series is so far very much an endless cycle of rinse and repeat. Imagine a common battle manga, where the MC endlessly train, fight, level up to beat opponent, just meet new more powerful opponent, train in order to beat him/her, then rinse and repeat this formula in absurdum. Imagine this and you have Martial World! The world building, and writing isnt bad though, the cultivation methods are both well done and interesting and MC is not bad at all, even if he is OP


This novel started out fairly interesting, but after 100s of chapters of endless training, leveling up, beating powerful opponents just to find a new and even more powerful one around the corner, the plot starting from chapter 300 or so, became quite dull and frankly boring. The lack of any sort of proper antagonist is a huge minus, as is the mcs enemies, of whom most of them devolves into psychopathic sexual predators, rapists and murderers, who lusts after the mcs harem of extremely one dimensional women instead of thinking clearly. Also, I dislike series with ret*rded factions, where people strive for personal power without caring about anything else, where the leaders of said factions just dont give a damn or are to moronic and short sighted to see or even care if their whole family/sect/kingdom/faction crumbles around them in their own personal quest for more power.

Still, its an addictive read and better than average. I would give this a way better rating if the the endless cycle of training/fighting/powering up stopped, if the mcs harem of dull and generic women actually got interesting, and if at some point, the plot actually took of and an interesting villain finally appeared. Instead of the author just keeps introducing just another and more powerful clone of the previous villain the MC beat, which the MC easily defeats after gaining a cheat like power-up/skill in the nick of time.

So almost 700 chapters after I wrote the above review, what has changed? Well, unfortunately almost nothing, which is a huge problem, hence the lower rating. The endless cycle of tournaments was obnoxious after 400 chapters, 800 f*cking chapters later its still going on, so can you please stop it already Mr. Author? The actual changes are that Lin-Gary Stu-Ming, has gotten some more op cheat abilities, met thousands of gray background characters that no one cares about, but still manages to get screen time in the form of expressing wooos and waaahs at Gary Lin Ming Stues super duper awesome moves (aka filler words), or being a pointless antagonist for a chapter or two, the generic harem girls are at some point upgraded to pointless wives, has given birth, was left behind in a lower realm with his children and has only recently made a comeback after being left out for like 500+ chapters. What else? Well, the deus-ex cube spawned a super powerful mentor who saves our beloved MC and kicked some serious ass. this series is a harem for some reason, it was of course in the form of a beautiful woman, which of course has a powerful enemy that killed her sect and family, cue Lin Ming to save the damsel at some point. This cycle of endless rinse and repeats has made me sure of one thing, Ling Stu will him in some tournament in the future!

Right now the MC is in the middle of t
