Pretty standard story for a Xianxia. Our protagonist, Yang Chen, goes back in time to re-do his life. He used to be at the upper hierarchy of the cultivation world but was the passive and benevolent type however that makes him a pushover and the weakest link hence death came to him and those important to him. With his rebirth, he strives to be more cunning and ruthless.

An all round good read though the pacing and plot buildup is a bit on the slow side. Overall story is standard but good. There are also plenty of terms and technical jargon in the novel but the author does a good job explaining them. Protagonist is likable, at least for me. Although he is ruthless & brutal he still shows some restraint if his opponent is not inherently a bad person and he'll end up pulling him/her to his side. He does actually attract quite a lot of characters to his team but still theres lesser focus on side characters like all Xianxia novels. With regards to Yang Chen's overpowered-ness, he is definitely high up the charts. He has knowledge from his past life as a primary principal golden immortal like cultivation knowledge & techniques, treasure locations, who are the potential allies & enemies as well as their modus operandi and also major turn of events. He used these against his foes and to turn himself powerful, for example he starts hording treasures. He also received plenty of inheritance from the former Heavenly Court faction(who were peak characters) when he was 'recruited' to be the shadow/unknown executioner. For those interested in romance, i've haven't read that much, am only up till chapter 300+ but so far no confirmed romance or harem though there are hints of it. Several women hold some feelings for the protagonist but he is more concerned with cultivation and taking revenge, this will probably change in the future.

Only thing i find annoying about this novel is how sometimes the author can be quite long winded with his explanations with a lot of repetition. I was also a bit dismayed with the slow pacing but got used to it soon. The technical stuff with regards to cultivation etc can be get a bit complex and confusing at times, so just be aware of that and re-read if you must.

I'd say give Immortal Executioner a try, chances are you'll like it even if it is a very ordinary Xianxia lol.
