I had just finished reading the online chinese novel <凡人修仙传> and it's sequeal <凡人修仙传仙界篇>. I loved the first novel but was disappointed with the sequel. It wasn't bad but I think the ending can be a bit better.
For those who don't know much about the book and can read chinese, click here for more info. For those who can't, why are you reading this post? Hahahaha. This chinese fantasy novel is written by 忘语, and the story is about 韩立 and his quest to attain immortality.
The 2 novels are long, and you are looking at about 4000 chapters in total. There are spoilers so if you are bothered by spoilers, you can stop reading this now.
韩立 started off as a farm boy joining a kungfu sect so as to help his family financially. He barely made it through the entrance exam and was discipled under an elder who works as a healer for the sect. Later he discovered that his teacher took him in for the intention to takeover 韩立 body as the teacher body was hurt quite badly and was not able to recover, and also the fact that he was not of the ideal age to begin cultivation towards immortality anymore. But 韩立 was smart and outwitted his teacher, escaped dealth and instead killed his teacher and began his path towards immortality.
The whole story revolved around his adventures that covers over 3 realms, human realm, spiritual realm and immortal realm (these are my own translations).
The first novel ended with him ascending into the spiritual realm, while the second novel started with him losing his memories of 300 years after ascension. This part of the story is good, there is a mystery to solve and I liked it. Later he discovered why he lost his memory and found out who is behind the incidents, resulting in the ruler sect of the realm hunting him down.
Now let me talk about the part I dislike about the story. 韩立 special power is time, which is one of the 3 ultimate powers. But the premise of having only 1 supreme user of each power and the one who is the supreme user will be slowly absorbed by the WAY as he uses more of the power. This story is about attaining immortality so what the hell is this all about. You train so hard to be the number one powerful being then end up have to die as you use more of the power. This part really bug the hell out of me. I wanted to see him being the strongest character and become the immortal he started his journey. The end is something I cannot accept. Sadly I am not the author so I just got to read it and put it aside.
Enough of ranting. Thanks for reading it.
I write for fun to entertain myself and others. Hopefully you will enjoy my works too. If you don't, too bad, but don't write to me about it.
