As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei WuXian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was back-stabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans—Lan WangJi, his archenemy.
Let me start off by saying I'm a fairly avid reader, and I've read a wide variety of genres and types of writing styles. The Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation is by far one of the best books I have ever read. It has a beautiful story that's both captivating and surprising. It never gets boring, the pacing is great, and the world is so complete and real it is bordering on Tolkien levels of detail and audience understanding. Its story is also very human, you can understand why all the characters due what they do, and each character-even the ones only there for two or three chapters-are fleshed out, they have personalities, ideals, flaws, and lives both before and after the story ends. The story itself follows a bright and powerful cultivator by the name of Wie-Ying, who wants nothing more than to live his life carefree and keep his family and loved ones safe. But as life often does, nothing goes according to plan and Wie-Ying ends up the greatest evil the world has ever known. Overall I can't recommend this book enough, and even if you just like a good fiction story this is one of the best, and nothing I can say will do the actual book justice. If you are having trouble finding the novel the amazing people over at Exiled Rebels did an amazing job translating and posting it in a format accessible by everyone. https://exiledrebelsscanlations.com/novels/grandmaster-of-demonic-cultivation/ (Edit: they have even translated the side stories now!)https://exiledrebelsscanlations.com/gdc-chapter-114/
Before I an anime fan, I am a reader, a bookworm. I have read thousands so fantasy actiona nd romance books but never had a book struck me so much like Mo Dao Zu Shi. If it had been an actual book, being publishes around the world, it would have gone to heights unimaginable. It plain beautiful. From the characters to the plot and the romance and the difficult to get action scences. Its ranks second among all the books I have ever read and I love it.
I had my fair share of books I've read I am very picky and need to be excited the whole time to finish a book of any sort and this one won me over what a perfect story. I watched the anime and was reading this novel with the manhua the same time, it's very long and detailed, to say the least, the author took his time explaining and drawing the scene, although sometimes I thought the backstories were too long but aside from that it was just perfect the romance and how everything slowly adds up to the plot just beautiful. I would recommend watching the anime first it helped me visualise a lot.
