It's bad   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

One dimensional protagonist who is hell bent on killing demons because his father told him Demons are evil ~_~ It's like humanity is totally good while Demons are pure evil. The real world doesn't works like that. No race thinks themselves as evil...even the most heinous crime has a reason behind it. A life is a life whether it belongs to a human or a demon. But in this story the demons are pigs to be slaughtered by MC. (There is no absolute good or ultimate evil...that's what I like about the other Chinese novels like ISSTH or Xian Ni).

The other problem is that the MC has no personality.

Terrible translation   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0
by TheIro
March 14th, 2016, 9:03pm
I usually like Chinese novels but this novel is let down by the low quality of its translation. Namely like the earlier parts of Doulou Dalu, it reads like an edited version of google translate.

Aside from the issues with grammar and syntax, what bugs me the most is terrible naming sense by its translators with regards to the in-world terms. Eg the ordinary knights, standard knights, genuine knights - my god can they not use english terms that are not so similar? Same thing applies to the description of 'energy' in this novel; spiritual energy, spiritual units, internal spiritual energy, innate internal spiritual energy, knight 'steps', knight levels, knight ranks. Apparently these are all different terms that are totally different from each other, but due to all these similar terms, its a confusing mess. They even all use the same numbers that overlap to denote their power levels. The relationship between each term is not clearly defined and the stupid same sounding names makes it utterly incomprehensible.

Grammar in the writing is half stuck in Chinese mode and half in English mode. It never flows smoothly as it should, the syntax is disjointed and with the awkward throwing in of badly translated Chinese idioms, it's a terrible chore just to go through each line.

The translation does get better around ch200+, however its a bit much to have to wade through 200 chapters to get to the good parts. Not to mention it's still plagued by the bad naming sense of the translators.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
To give you more stupid examples, these guys would call winged flying horses a 'unicorn' instead of say 'pegasus'. The most valuable magical artifacts are called spiritual 'stoves' even though they're not stoves and has nothing to do with cooking. Instead these class of items would include living fairies, earth elementals and magic daggers. Would it not make more sense to name them something like 'ancient legacies' or soul/spirit/living relics/artifacts? How is a flying humanoid fairy any way a 'stove'?? Jesus Christ. Don't even get me started on how they named a three headed lizard from hell... an 'Austin Griffin'. As if it was a griffin from Texas.... Atrocious naming sense.

Thank god for the replace all function so I can change it something more appropriate. (sigh)

It is okay   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

It is an ok novel, and the MC seems pure and good. However, he ruthlessly kills demons for no reason than the fact that he is told that they are humanities enemies. At least ATG and MGA mc's kill because someone is after their lives or after their friends and families lives.
My biggest problem is the hypocrisy someone's parents and how they treated a child most of their lives and next time they saw their child. They acted like like "real" parents and acted like they did nothing wrong to their child. It seemed like they were forgiven a little. I hate the BS blood is thicker than water when is one sided. It is supposed to work two-ways.

Really Good   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

I read the whole novel and in my opinion the story development is one of the best out of others.
The pace is slow and steady, which allowed for all the character's skills and personality to develop fully. There is only one or two time skips in the whole novel.

The characters also don't fall flat. Main character has a perfect hero personality, but the author made it fitting to the story and without making it seem too unnatural.
The main character is, of course, the most OP out of the bunch, but the author really made an attempt to make the other characters appear useful and distinct.
The conversations really make each character stand out from each other.

The ending is also really unexpected, in my opinion, the ending is better than DD.

Greedy translator   
Rating: N/A
by David9513
February 20th, 2016, 5:07am
The story is good with action, romance and some mysteries but what i dislike is the translator.. he is just too greedy, if there have donation he won't make regular chapters but if there don't have donation, he will only make a chapter every 2 or 3 days, it sounds like a threat or blackmail for me.

Examples :
Day 1 : Sponsored chapter
Day 2 : Nothing
Day 3 : Nothing
Day 4 : Regular chapter

or
Day 1 : Sponsored chapter
Day 2 : Nothing
Day 3 : Sponsored chapter
Day 4 : Nothing
Day 5 : Nothing
Day 6 : Regular chapter (yep if there have a sponsored chapter he will postponed the regular chapter)

So if you want a chapter everyday people must give money..

Day 1 : Sponsored Chapter
Day 2 : Sponsored Chapter
Day 3 : Sponsored Chapter
Day 4 : Sponsored Chapter
Day 5 : Sponsored Chapter
Day 6 : Sponsored Chapter

And of course it's only a chapter per day.

I just love it!

I have posted a review when this novel just began to be translated...and after reading about 20 chapters or so, I wasn't really impressed since the plot seemed quite ordinary - demons had attacked humanity who after a few centuries of being cornered, finally reached a stalemate.

Anyway, now that I read over 150 chapters and I saw how good this novel actually is, I can't get enough of it.
I like the MC: despite being quite OP considering his age, he never gets arrogant; despite being a genius he's also hardworking. He's still young and his heart is still pure. I'm looking forward to the moment when the problems he'll face or the pain he'll feel will force him to change. I'm curious to see what will he become.

However, what I'm enjoying the most right now is the beginning of the relationship between Haochen and Cai'er. Don't get me wrong, the action and the battles are quite exciting and they don't get boring; but the beginning of their romance is so much more fun to read.
They are both so innocent and pure that make you feel giddy witnessing their feelings after they only held each other's hand or after a simple hug.

When it comes to romance, this xianxia is clearly better than Douluo Dalu. The action is good too, but so far Douluo Dalu's plot has more depth.
------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: I've just read the chapters 165 and 166. Omg, the feels....I'm still crying a river, poor Cai'er! ;_;

So, the sole son&heir of Ultra Special Super Elite God Warrior, holder of one of the 8 Divine Thrones, fails his first attempt to be accepted into a Squire training program since he had given away all the training elixirs to his extremely poor and sick mother... Is author sane? Or is his father some kind of sadist?

Dropped around 150-200

I saw potential in the early story, but in the end what really killed it for me was how terrible all the characters and dialogues are. All of them felt flat and uninspired to me.

The romance was terrible as well. It is all so picture perfect yet fragile, needy and awkward if not autistic. Furthermore, his idealized woman doesn't feel like a real woman at all - she feels like a wounded man's ideal: a creature that exists for him, when in fact real women exist for themselves, first and foremost (as well they should).

But then none of the characters exist for themselves and truly live and struggle in the story: instead they are all just awkward plot devices. Even the MC is obviously just a device to satisfy the author's and readers' haphazard desires for gary-stu fantasy, rather than a human being.

Also, the magical fight scenes are terrible. There are simply too many categories of attackers (mage, priest, assassin, summoner, warrior type A or B, knight type A or B, + etc.) and each has a frikkin' ton of special magical attacks (ex: a defensive-type knight has a MAGICAL shield bash power that depends not on physical mass, density, hardness or momentum but on magic), so when the author has them fight against one another, you have hardly any tension because you have no idea what powers are stronger than others or how they should complement or trump one another (because they are all IMAGINARY, 100% bogus martial arts).

In these confusing fights, the author will sometimes even wait until the following chapter to explain why the protagonist won his fight - so AFTER you are all confused and lost about why exactly the MC's magical, imaginary offense/defense obliterated his enemy's imaginary offense/defense, you find out that one of the dozens of abilities available was in fact totally OP in that context and therefore there was in fact no reason to worry - LOL!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It was also weird early on, when the 10 yr old MC murders some tough guy just for talking trash about his mom. The MC is so OP that his 'duel' with the guy is completely one-sided, and then the CHILD MC has zero remorse or regrets about having murdered someone just for his dumb pride.

After all, it's not like they are facing a desperate war where all resources, including soldiers' lives, are critical, right? Good thing there is a paragon of justice around to wantonly murder people! OOps, I mean, make things better, of course!


Perhaps the only part I liked was the bonded animal, which was treated very nicely and with honor, which it also returned in full to the MC. It was really nice to see, but nearly everything else was a turn off for me.

---

I've noticed that, for most of these Wuxia MCs, if they aren't straight out sociopaths (brutally applying the law of the jungle, as would any mafia wannabe-chieftain, torturing, murdering, stealing and conning their way to 'success'), then they are mainly just 'good' at following their family's orders, like by being killer robots.

So the MC in this one is of the slightly rarer 'good' Wuxia MC variant. The plot gives him the excuse for deciding that the government is good (they are the only thing hold them pesky demons back!), so the MC constantly shows that he is good mainly because he follows his military orders with zeal!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In the end, what killed it for me was seeing how awkwardly the author set up the social struggles of the MC as he started to lead two teams of knights. His challenges, opponents, and dialogues were so lame I just couldn't take it anymore.


To be honest though, there are not many (if any) Wuxia I've been able to finish - they seem to be good at the start and to then become very repetitive. This one, however, feels like something created by an author with many thousand-chapter+ Wuxia behind him: he is painstakingly min/maxing ever part to make it last as long as possible, but the better moments are too few to sustain the reader, especially as more and more problems start to accumulate in the story (as per more recent reviews).

Average xianxia novel   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0
by Katsono
June 14th, 2015, 11:28am
As most xianxia novels, SYWZ tells the story of a little boy and its growth throughout the years. Of course, the main character is overpowered and just as usual, in this author's novels, he's so lucky that nothing bad ever happens to him.

Once again many RPG-like rankings are used, the world is not that developped as of the 60 chapters I've read and there isn't really any plot except the main character growing up to be a knight. The idea of temples seem interesting but so far only a mage has been shown up as a part of the MC's group, and it's only a secondary character.

It doesn't offer much compared to other similar novels, and I would say it's not better than Doulou Dalu but it's still enjoyable, unless you get bored of it for being too ordinary.
