Nothing happens for 38 chapters, where I stopped the first time.
Then things happen, but also a Bang-whoosh-wham drama.
Ultimately the monsters have escalated so much, and all the side characters I care about are dead, I'll stop.

After offically finishing this novel, here are my thoughts.

Firstly, the first 4 books of this novel was awesome. Great example of Chinese literature just like Coiling Dragon and Stellar Transformation. It was better than Stellar Transformation.

The antics of the bird and the meat jelly were hysterical. Especially the human figure "who dares to cause strife" formation (you'll know it when you see it ^^), that was some great creative writing right there. It was such a remarkable and memorable scene that it stuck with me for ages and made the bird the mascot of this novel. Then came the epic war of the Frigid Snow clan, the shocking finale and the desert migration. It was masterful, shocking and awe inspiring.

Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, then the Ancient Demon Immortal Sect arc comes along and ups the epicness. It was just beautifully written. You read about the rich story of an ancient destroyed era, the glories of the legends in the past. Lots of great world building that gave clues to and made the background story of this novel more interesting. Yet that wasn't the best part. In this arc, the best part of the writing was about the characters. You read about the story of a father and son. It was a story of love, of selfishness, and of redemption. I don't want to go too much into it as it would be a spoiler, but suffice to say it was very moving. It even brought a tear to my eye.

This was the highlight of the story. Unfortunately this was also the turning point.

The next arc after that was still good and funny, there were some peculiarities to some character's actions, some minor mistakes, easily overlooked. Then the next arc after that, you start to notice some things. At a certain point in time you realise the writing's gotten worse. Why did this group of people engage in such a stupid action? Why did the main character forget this and this? The next arc after that. Plotholes crop up. The next arc after that, it gets worse. As you read along chapter after chapter, it becomes obvious that the writing's gotten lazier. Things like items, abilities, even important plot points mentioned in previous chapters are forgotten soon after. Things that had been previously established gets changed or retconned into something else with no explanation or reason. As you keep reading, the glaring stupidity of these plotholes becomes worse. Why did the main character and the other characters become such retards?

At this point I was literially punching out computer screens in my mind. Keep calm, you tell yourself. Maybe this is one of those stories that have a good beginning, crap middle and great ending?
Then the ending comes. Nothing changes. With a sigh, I then realised this was the most plothole ridden Chinese novel I've ever read! It was an absolute disgrace to all Chinese novels. Damn it, why did I not have a time machine to tell myself to stop reading after book 4 huh? Give me back my good memories of ISSTH!! ┗|`o′|┛

With the benefit of hindsight, let me tell you if you don't like reading stupid plot-hole ridden stories, have good reading comprehension skills, don't read past book 4. DON'T READ PAST BOOK 4! (Ok maybe one chapter after, as c629 should be in 4, but NEVER GO PAST THAT!) Most of the other reviews were written before the latter shitty chapters were released. Get out on a high note, move on to other novels!

(note: my rating only applies to the earlier books)

The depth of the story stands out among all the other light novels out there. It's funny, awesome, cool, and smart. The English translations are also top notch. To not read this novel if you are a fan of Xianxia's is a sin against humankind.

There is actual foreshadowing of stuff that happens later in the story, showing that there is thought and plot behind the writing. There is an actual point to everything beyond just cultivating, getting stronger, and stomping on the enemies (a common problem among your average Xianxia like MGA).

I don't really think I need to get into explaining the story b/c if you've read the other positive reviews you should have a pretty good idea of what this is about.

Just read it. You'll thank me later.

ISSTH - Among the Best of Webnovels   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

I'm a prodigious reader, I read pretty much everything I can get my hands on. This includes web novels, which for some reason I keep reading even though the majority make my eyes and brain bleed due to the low writing OR translation quality. I Shall Seal the Heavens, thankfully is not one of them. The translation quality is literate and well done, and the writing quality is general paperback novel level. This is a large mark in it's favor before we even talk about the story/characters or plot itself

<disclamer: I will attempt to explain xanxia novels for those unfamiliar with them in the following paragraph, if you are familiar with the genre feel free to skip this section>

ISSTH is a Xanxia novel, which for those of you unfamiliar with chinese novels, this means it's an "Immortal Hero" novel. Xanxia (for the uninitiated) is a genre of chinese fantasy with it's own tropes and cliches, usually featuring some martial artist who practices some form of internal enlightenment translated as "cultivation" which will lead to some further enlightenment which will lead to stronger "mystical powers" which will eventually lead to some form of immortality. Xanxia novels typically include characters who are called "immortal cultivators" fighting against each other, sometimes fighting against monsters, dragons and demons, often eventually fighting some god or gods. It might be easier to imagine if you think of a movie like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, which while not really a xanxia tale, comes close enough to a "low level" story in a xanxia world as to give you something to work with.

ISSTH is of course a xanxia novel. because of this it contains many of the tropes and cliches of the genre. It features a main character who practices "cultivation", who gains martial prowess though increased enlightenment in "cultivation"; the character eventually get powerful enough to no longer need to eat, sleep or even breath. They can suffer and heal wounds that would kill a "mortal", they hold long grudges and tend to fight with eachother for stupid reasons. If you don't like Xanxia you probably will struggle mightily to enjoy ISSTH because as a story ISSTH exists comfortably within it's genre.

That is not to say it is held back by it's genre. ISSTH, while containing many of the tropes, trappings and cliches of the genre also distinguishes itself from the genre. It has an uncommon main character who is a failed scholar and a shameless conman. He's grew up poor and as a result has an ABNORMAL lust for $$$. As a result he tries all the angles. Immortal Cultivation itself is something he does for some loose reasons, as its never been his ultimate goal. Money is his ultimate goal. With such a mundane and human motivation he's infinitely more relatable then most of the MCs of Xanxia novels who often follow cultivation for "power" because "the world of cultivation is the world where the strong takes from the week" (yes that is a quote from another Xanxia novel, in fact that quote probably shows up in some form in MOST xanxia novels, it's a very common mindset/setting).

In addition to ming hao's twisted and "colored" world view there are an assortment of colorful side characters who Gen Er introduce who are all largely memorable.

The comedy in ISSTH is one of it's strong points, however it's best to understand that GenEr's sense of humor isn't readily apparent at first. Much like Gintama, there is a weirdness factor that the reader must acclimate to in order to see all the small funny things GenEr includes in his stories. Better still are the hundred plus chapter long jokes he'll build in the background all for some uproariously funny punchlines entire books after he started to build the joke. A good early example of this multi-chapter /book buildup would be the introduction of the Reliance Sect's founder and leader in book 1. This is a character a whole novel builds up only for several punchlines to be dropped when he finally shows up. A better example would be the search for the husband for the Song clan girl in book 2. the first 3 chapters at the song clan event are ALL punchline/payoff for a 70-100 chapter long joke gen er started to weave mid way through book 1 (those three chapters had me laughing so hard i couldn't even read it i was crying too hard from all the laughter).

The plot does wind around a bit, it's organic, and grows from point to point rather then have some overarching theme, as Ming Hao himself likes to talk about his own "Dao" (way) the story is about Ming Hao's journey, not his destination. GenEr does add a lot of philosophy and some interesting and profound moments to this book. And while the philosophy can be engaging at times, what the author does better then philosophising or humorizing, is HUMANIZING the story. This is a story with a heart, and there will be many sad-nostalgic-deep HUMAN moments throughout the story. This is something most Xanxia fails to establish even when the mc is human and weak, and it is something that often is forgotten early even in the xanxia novels which succeed in humanizing it's characters and plot. No matter how strong the MC gets, this story always finds a way to keep itself lively and human.

I noted some reviews complain about the slow start. I actually went back and reread the first 20 chapters of the story and disagree. I remember the start being slow, much like I dropped Gintama around episode 13. However I was still getting used to the author's style, and much like with gintama, somehow I was able to persevere till I started to get the author. The first 50 chapters or so of ISSTH is just as funny and human as the last 50 (translated). however since I wasn't familiar with his weird sense of humor, and didn't grasp the world or characters well I found myself bored early in this series as well. However right around the time Ming Hao became an inner sect disciple I fell into GenEr's pace and was trapped by a very adictive, and funny story.

ISSTH is not a masterpiece, there are weaknesses in his story (like how the MC's love interest is somehow the most boring girl in the series), however by webnovel standards it's easily one of the best you'll ever read.

Slow start, nearly dropped the series at around 100 chapters. Gets better afterwards, and the plot/comedy is pretty good read most times.

That MC though... Granted I haven't read many of the Chinese novels, but this guy's one blackhearted prick. He'll never do anything unless it either benefits himself, he can't run away like a little bitch or if he feels indebted to someone. in 99% of the cases it's either the first or second option. He'll beat and kill people if they got something he wants, and even if he causes calamity to fall upon himself (e.g. killing a vip) he feels wronged and swears to destroy their whole clan/sect. All the time I read this it feels like he's extremely similar to Xiao Yi from "My Disciple Died Yet Again" - novel.

Also, a little gripe I got with gore. It feels like people in ISSTH world will spurt out blood even if one so much as touches another. After 800+ chapters the only way to tell that a character takes serious damage is for the novel to directly tell you it. You won't knowl anything based on how much blood flows; bloodletting is so prevalent that it stops being a sign of getting hurt, but something that happens to both sides in practically every fight. It goes beyond ridiculous, and after a few hundred chapters gore has already lost its purpose, and feels more like a satire than anything serious.

I have read Stellar Transformations,Against the Gods, Tales of Demons and Gods, Desolate Era, Battle through the Heavens but this is was the one I really liked, it doesn't mean i didn't like the others.Each one has its own good points.I usually like OP MCs so I didn't really start reading this for quite a while as many were saying the MC is always chased and is running away but when I picked this I was instantly hooked and finished its 650+ translated chapters in a week.The thing I like the most in ISSTH is that it's very profound.I like the cultivation levels and it's comedic scenes, and how Er gen doesn't forget any characters and trust me the MC is OP and there is some really good character development for some characters.The only thing I don't like is how later on there are many scenes where majority of the writing is about how powerful characters are shocked by MC and.It sometimes feel like I am watching Yun Che from ATG.But still ISSTH is really good go read this now.For me ISSTH>ATG,TDG,BTTH,ST>DE

I'm shocked that there are so many bullshit so-called 'reviews' treating this as their comment section.

I could do the sensible thing and refute them. And believe me it would be easy. People like Jetgt make it seem like there's so much wrong with the novel while being immensely vague at same time. And then there's the "I wanted to read this, but then I read Jetgt's review and decided not to, but instead decided to post here my non-existant opinion".
For the love of god, how ignorant must one? I will quote you the reason why Jetgt dropped this novel: "randomness at the end (turtle in space) made me dropped it. No, I'm not kidding. There is a huge turtle in space."

A giant turtle holding a whole continent. Now this is unheardof! Unfathomable and utterly ridiculous. Author must be pulling everything out of his ass. You will notice my sarcasm here, if you're familiar with the World Turtle. It is indended.

So I beg of you. And I don't do this usually. Please ignore these ignorant opinions, and at least make your own opinion by reading this novel.

This is by far the best Xianxia on my reading list.

i started reading xianxia novels in december 2015, and i read at least 10 of thi genere.
this is the firs one that i stopped reading, i like book one and have some laugh but book 2 went down and i just couldn't continue reading.
there are things that doesn't come together, for example why does the character want to grow stronger? and since i stopped reading it a while ago i don't remember the rest Lol.
i understand that thos type of novel have the necesity for cultivating items, pills, monster cores, etc. But this novel takes it too much. He just cultivates, and tarin a little the techniques just to barely using them.
i am not of writting reviews or reading them, because in the end it is jus someone else opinion and maybe we can agree or not, so i encourage you to give this novel a try to find out if you like it or not. But if you like coilling dragon, stellar transformations, against the gods, etc i don't think you would like this one because this mc is not as hard working and has some real motives as the others.

I Shall Seal the Heavens (ISSTH) is one of my favorite xianxia series out there as the story doesn't follow the usual rinse and repeat format unlike the other popular novels out there.

ISSTH is not only about Meng Hao getting powerful in every arc. As Meng Hao once said Immortality is just a destination but what matters the most is enjoying the scenery.

ISSTH would make you laugh. Meng Hao's conman skills would make your day and so would Lord Fifth. It is also the only xianxia novel which would make you cry. The novel is full of strong philosophical moments.

Sure the entire story is focused around Meng Hao and the focus on side characters is pretty low but ISSTH'S side characters are one of the most well characterized side characters out there.

ISSTH has one of the best female side characters out there. Sure we see some fanrgirl but most of the female cultivators are unique in personality. They are not some stupid and one dimensional characters. I especially liked "Big sis" from Fang clan. The chapters focused on her are treat for eyes.

ISSTH has the best Master-Discipline relationship out there. Usually when I read cultivation novels the Master-Discipline relationship is pretty shallow. But in ISSTH the personality of Pill Demon is such that you can't help but praise the author for creating such a perfect character. The arc in which Meng Hao was accepted as his legacy apprentice was one of the best storyline out there.

Meng Hao sows karma with many during his journey for better or for worse. I liked how the story wasn't about just getting power-up. The Desert Migration arc was one such beautiful arc. Meng Hao developed family love for the tribe he was protecting. I especially liked how he got sad when he learned that one of his "subordinate" (who was once his opponent) was killed in order to draw him out...that scene was so painful.

I think the best part for action and fantasy readers is that the story doesn't focuses on "arrogant genius" vs MC. We don't see the descent of one stupid villain after the another. Plus author rarely uses tournament style arcs and when he do they are full of suspense and drama.

Er Gen is a genius when it comes to creating unique abilities. Characters have so many never seen before abilities. Plus the battles are rarely dragged and mkst of the times there is no stupid side characters reaction.

Believe me this series deserve a chance. It's in no way perfect but still the best read out there. Give it a chance.

Exceptional Logical Xianxia Long Review   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0
by vanana
May 2nd, 2016, 6:11am
I'm new to the Xianxia theme novels, and honestly the numbers of novels that I've read are very few, it's so few that it didn't exceed the number of my fingers. Despite of that I can tell that ISSTH is really exceptional to many chinese web novels. If you don't wanna read this long review, just go to the ~Enjoyment~ section.
"I shall Seal the Heavens" or "Wo Yu Feng Tian" is the Top 9 Novel and the Top 1 Xianxia Novel in Mangaupdates

ISSTH is composed of 1614 chapters and the translated chapters have almost finished the 4th Book, probably by this month the 5th book will be translated, now this novel is a continuous slow paced but very connected. ISSTH is not very complex, but also not simple, it's actually it was able to mixed up its subject by using complex things while simplifying it overall, especially the DAO.

The Dao is a combination of road, way, path, course, direction, say, talk, speak, truth, principle. They may sound complicated but the overall story was portraying them in simple way, actually the only thing which unpredictable is the Dao, which makes the whole series exceptional to others. Overall the predictability and uniqueness of the story is not superior to many series, it's even repetitive if you'll try to look at it in a different picture, however it's a clear evidence that ISSTH exceptional. ISSTH is very heavy on Dao, it's so connected that it was able to connect some individual chapters like the 58th chapter to 625th chapter, which is about the "Dao" of the protagonist, also every legacies and power-ups was foreshadowed so much that the Plot Armor makes sense, If other series activates their plot armor in the dire situations, ISSTH is like a Soldier who wears an Plot Armor and Plot Weapon before he goes to war.

Note: I'll try to differentiate the whole series by dividing them into Two, which is the combination of 1st, 2nd and 3rd book, and the 4th book since the first three books were composed of 300 chapters, and it's the same case as the 4th book.

The Individual elements of the story is still the same as the others, the 'Adventures' are great, there were many places which was visited and the scale of the fantasy world was really vast, the entire story much bigger than I've anticipated, and the story was able to cover up only the half of the continent. The First 3 books was able to explore the 1st continent, while the 4th book was able to explore the 2nd continent, and there are 4 continents in total. The First 3 books was able to portray world building and the overall idea of the universe and it was able to create an intelligent exploration. However the 4th Book is the opposite, it's not Logical and Intelligent as the First 3 books, even though it was filled with epic adventures which focuses on tribal, clan and sect wars, it has too much power ups especially Legacies. The First Three Book was very strict to its rule, even though the Protagonist was Unique, he can't break that rule, however the 4th book have thrown out that logic and strict rules, the 4th book is mostly stereotypical.

There are few times that the 'Action' was really detailed and the action, the only problem was there's too much "Chasing" happening throughout the whole series, there's no book that it didn't happen, every life and death situation involves chasing. The First 3 books have used too much chasing, but at the same time it's very Logical and enthralling that most action is about that if it were to be compared to battles, but it's the opposite in the 4th book, it's the Protagonist who usually chase the antagonists The 4th Book is composed of War which is participated by thousands of people and most of the time the Protagonist is the Strongest, there's no other person who was able to Stand Against him in the entire book, it's quite flawed since the First Three books were balanced while in the 4th book it is not.

To Make it clear ISSTH in the First 3 Books were filled with Intelligent prerequisites, the 1st book is the most intelligent book of the 4 books, while the 3rd book is very refreshing except in the last scenes before the 4th book, the 2nd book is comparable to 4th book, though the 2nd book is much interesting than the 4th book, the only differences was there were so many Wars in the 4th book, while the 2nd book is much focused on adventurous exploration and amusing accidental lucky situations.

There's a Good Balanced of Drama and Comedy, but most of the time the story is focused on Improving One Self which is an introversion type of character dynamics. There might be dramas which will focus on character development(not power or strength) in the future but for now, within the current translated chapters, there were only few scenes which can be considered as Dramatic scenes which gives an importance to character growth. The Comedy is usually executed by the antics of the other people whom the protagonist have met, especially the comedic relief which is the companions of protagonist(Meat Jelly and Lord Fifth).

My problem in the story is the Character Execution, one of the mottos of the story is "To Rely on Myself" this is not actually a flaw, but it's an Identity, at the same time this Identity is not generally liked by many people including me. only few interaction and memorable moments throughout the 4 books, and those moments are generally like a Gold to readers like me, since the interaction throughout the 4 books is heavy on Observation, Reading, Suspecting and others, like there's no room for trust and mutual connection, also the problem is the Interaction were written in simple words while the power-ups are so detailed that almost 75% is only about that.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's really fixed that Meng Hao will be alone in the plot until he meets his family, which might happen in the 5th book. His mother statement was:
?You must walk your 'path alone'. Perhaps one day, you will find your way to us, and then you?ll understand everything?. If you can?t make it, then mother will wait for you to be reincarnated in the yellow springs of the underworld.?

The genre: "Romance" was not written in this site, but there was too much 'ship tease' and the possibility is high. It seemed that no matter where the protagonist went, he would attract attention. The interaction of the protagonist to some women leaves an impression to both women and readers, but I didn't like the halfway style of the author, for 4 books, the 2nd book was able to create an interesting interaction, but leaves behind, especially the moment he became the Son in Law of Song Clan. The rest of the women were treated badly in terms of plot device and character execution, they didn't become a fanservice either, but the author have used some women just to let the readers know that Meng Hao is attractive. At least there's a fruitful interaction between Meng Hao and Xu Qing.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The comment of Meng Hao's Mother is probably the best to simplify what I'm trying to say
"This kid has always been a player?. He just can?t help but make girls like him.?

Meng Hao is the only who's receiving the spotlight. His Dao can be found at chapter 625, which is full of philosophical moments. Meng Hao's always Calm, his Killing intent is covered with calm appearance; Clever, he's so clever that you can easily call him a cheater for his extortion skill, plunder and etc..; Usually cold that he doesn't care for others except for those who are willing to die for him like Mastiff and Ke Yunhai, his Friends from the Reliance Sect and his Tribe, or for those who have terms and conditions, he will always try to protect them, but nothing more than that, and he might even try to leave them if the situation is dire; he's a con-man, many women is attracted to him, but not only that, he knows how to deal with them, except he's not interested in lustful ways nor romantic relationship, he's really busy that he doesn't have time to deal with that, the only way to attract his attention is to show love to him, much better if the women tried to die for him (I hope I can see that in the future) and the hell he tried to kill a puppy because of its noise; he's cunning, but that's only in the First 3 books, the 4th book is about showing his overpowered skills; he's a changed man, he was a pacifist who loves peace, but he's now the opposite; he's deliberate loner, the whole series is just about him; he's Fearless, but not an idiot like his enemies; he's hard-worker, the whole series is about his works; he's a hated protagonist, even I hate him, but I have to admit that he's unique and admirable; he's always lucky, finding things by accident or by serendipity is very common for him, and he takes advantage of it, and because of that, he owns great treasures, knowledge, and legacies; he's very mischievous; he's observant; he's ruthless, he have killed many people in a brutal way, not only that, he even tortured people by studying them; he's smart that he have taken many advantages.

His characteristics does not fit an ideal protagonist, he's more fitted as an ideal antagonist. The supporting characters are well rounded, they do change a lot and they develop too, the only problem is that they don't shine very well, since Meng Hao is always receiving the spotlight, at the same time, most of the Neutral characters are always 'underestimating' Meng Hao, and they can only change their impression afterwards, and one of the greatest problem are the antagonist, they are very shallow and most of them are stepping stones or just there for the clown show, only few have changed nor have tried to become new, but there's no antagonist who's worthy for Meng Hao to battle, eventually there's no rival who can stand again'st Meng Hao. Well one of my demand is a worthy Antagonist who will be remembered throughout the story.

It's a relief that translated chapters have only covered the 39% of it, if the whole series is just only made up of 600+ chapters, then I can say that it's potential was wasted and have gone downhill. Honestly I've enjoyed the 1st book, because I've seen so much intelligent development and mind blowing scenes, also the author is not relying on typical tropes such as deus ex machina and plot armor, almost everything in the 1st book is unique, the only repetitive was the chase. I loved the 2nd book because of Chu Yuyan and Jelly Meat also because of the "Gathering at the Song Clan". I like the 3rd book, it's more refreshing, though there's only a few interaction in it, also the debates are great and the best was the time he was almost dying in the last part. The 4th is the only thing that I didn't like, honestly it's filled with Epic Wars, Philosophical Moments and Reunion, but that's it, most of the time was about Meng Hao's power-ups, legacies, luck, boring fights, predictability, and the worst are extortion, plunder, torture, animal abuse(almost), bullying, though by doing these things, he gets a bad karma.

Overall I've enjoyed it, since the series was exceptional and have exceeded what I've expected in many ways, and I've read this novel by playing epic BGM and by searching some Images, and there's Great Philosophical Moments especially the way of Dao, and most of all the interaction of the supporting characters to Meng Hao is the best which is rare throughout the story like my favorite Chapter 189: All the Enemies Arrive
(the Trailers is a lie, I thought it's a group adventure). I just have a mixed feelings for this one.
