    This was a good book and worth a read if you're into progression fantasy-style novels. I thought it executed the cyberpunk milieu quite well. There were some great action scenes, and the ending was pretty cool and tantalized for the next book. The prose itself doesn't ever do anything flashy, and at times can certainly be too bland. "His weapon was a bullpup assault rifle that he held with both hands, giving me a clear view of his shoulder and the logo emblazoned there.

There were some great action scenes, and the ending was pretty cool and tantalized for the next book. The prose itself doesn't ever do anything flashy, and at times can certainly be too bland. "His weapon was a bullpup assault rifle that he held with both hands, giving me a clear view of his shoulder and the logo emblazoned there. It was a metal disk with a skeletal figure, flesh hanging off the bones. It was black." Three sentences in a row that begin the same, boring, analytical way. This is when we're first seeing some bad guys, and I want to feel like I should be worried about them. Instead, the prose leaves me kind of disconnected from the scene. Another example of lackluster prose: "The mood was tense. Our desperate and half-cocked plan had apparently worked, and we were now waiting for Svea to gain access to the data she needed, then sift through it. Tao Heng tried to get some conversations going around the table, but every effort stalled out after a minute or two. Nobody was in the mood." The third sentence shows what the first and last sentences tell, so why not just cut them out? Don't need to tell me the same thing three times in one paragraph. One of my general frustrations was that Wang Fan never really tried to advance save for a few exceptions. His advancements come not through hard work or cleverness, but through circumstances forced upon him. Then even when he gets those advancements, he hardly even tries to improve upon them. He literally doesn't try and learn any combat techniques until the very end, despite the fact that they keep getting in fights. Conflict: Oh gosh, this was another thing that bothered me. It was like every single conflict was the same. Person gets captured, now we have to break them out. Repeat for the entire book. Can we get a different conflict rather than just the same one over and over? There were a number of other individual plot problems I had, like why would he use bonemites when they're sneaking around and he knows he can be tracked through them, but the guy he's with can tell whether or not they've been infiltrated without the mites? Things like that, but I won't go into all of those. I will definitely consider reading book 2 when it comes out, but I hope it fixes some of the problems from this book.

    So, this isn't really a true review, as I didn't technically read this book. However, I did read the three books that were combined into this book when it was picked up by a publisher. I do have reviews on the original novels: 1) The Heretic Peacekeeper 2) The Secrets of the True Heaven 3) The Sun's Blood (yes, same name) So, if you want my feelings on the separate books, you can look at those. If you don't want to take the time to read those, don't worry, I won't be offended. It's not that importan So, this isn't really a true review, as I didn't technically read this book.

If you don't want to take the time to read those, don't worry, I won't be offended. It's not that important. What IS important is that you read this book. It's REALLY good. A cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic, cultivation novel that takes place in a future world where cultivation is illegal, but is practiced underground and maybe, just maybe, those who practice cultivation aren't the big bad guys they have long been portrayed as to the general public. The behind-the-scenes machinations are done really well, with reveals being well-times and characters who are so well-developed that they are clearly good (The Black Corpses definitely need a re-evaluation and to be outed to the public) or bad (I'm looking at you, Itsuke). Still, don't fret. There are still clear-cut bad guys. Johan Saito is definitely someone I would NOT want to come across anywhere. The friends that Wang Fan make along the way, while side characters, are also well-developed and help to move the story along (though a couple of them did frustrate me with their actions, but that's pretty standard of people). Anyway, I'm getting slightly off-topic. The moral of the story here? Read the book. That is all. Just read it. Soon. Like tomorrow. Or even today. Today is better. So go, get the book, clear your schedule, and start reading. And I say clear your schedule because this book, as an omnibus edition of 3 previously separate books, is over 1000 pages long. So it'll take you a couple days to read through it. But it's worth it, so don't let that page count scare you away. It's definitely worth it.

    Fun first installment. Nice progression fantasy with a good mix of adventure, character building and interesting scenery. Definitely scratches that progression fantasy itch without falling into the annoying tropes most webnovels fall prey to. Would rate 4 stars but gave 5 because I think the author deserves the extra boost and it is definitely worth reading if you like this type of fantasy. The reason I didn't give the final star is because of two minor annoyances I had. First I wish the different Fun first installment.

Also would like to see some more different abilities that just 1 or 2 for each type of cultivation. Though I suspect this might be something the story is working up to, could be explained by the fact that cultivation has been suppressed so people forgot a lot of stuff. The other minor complaint I have is that it sometimes got a tiny bit repetitive. It seems to boil down to rescuing, getting rescued or breaking in a lot of the time.

    wow! Fantastic read, action packed, and the length of a novel instead of so many KU books that I read in a few hours. I can’t wait for the second book, and more! I wish there had been more time with cultivation during the fast paced action of the story but I still had a great time. I also wish the pronunciation guide had been at the front of the book rather than the back.

    Paliprox This was a truly amazing story in many regards, but I do have one problem, paliprox. It's basically a drug that can be applied through skin contact in various ways and it disconnects a cultivator from their source of power. To put it bluntly it is pretty overpowered and although I don't have much of a problem with it now, I'd like Jeremy to give some more attention on it in the next book so it doesn't seem like some easily acquired drug that's basically a get out of jail free card.

    Couldn't put the book down once I started reading it. I loved Deathblade's previous translation work so I had to pick this up when I saw he wrote his own book. Being used to classic Xianxia novels this one had really good pacing and there wasn't anything unnecessary. I just love this combination of cyberpunk and cultivation! Makes me want to play Shadowrun again. Romance part of this book is a bit awkward but I hope it picks up on next book. Couldn't put the book down once I started reading it.

    I didn't like it. I am not an anime fan. This book read like a Manga. The heroes were just dumb. These were supposed be adults. The characters were child like. Future reference to the author, Wang was a cop that didn't know how to shoot. I read this book because my favorite author recommended this book. It a no for me. I won't be reading the next book.

    Unique and cool cultivation system. The futuristic world is very dark and interesting. The plot moves pretty slowly but it is still engaging though. It takes quite a bit of time until our MC gets an opportunity to learn cultivation. It took so long that I began to question if it would happen. Once he does, things start to move at a better pace.

    Awesome futuristic take on cultivation Well written and easy to follow, hard to p onut down. Only gripe would be that the pacing stalled a few times, but I still couldn't put the book down because I needed to know what was going to happen next.

    I received an ARC in return for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. Great character development and interesting story. It did take me a little to get into it but before I realised I couldn't put it done. Looking forward to the next. I received an ARC in return for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book.

    This book is non-stop action. A real page turner. Character and world development are on point. I highly recommend to anyone who would like to read about a dystopian future with wild magic and political intrigue. This book also made me crave oolong tea and congee, for some reason.
