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/
The story of a demonic cultivator who obtains a new body several years after his death. It's BL, but also a breath of fresh air for both the BL and the Xianxia genre. Wei WuXian and Lan WangJi are both consistent and multi-faceted characters and the love story avoids most of the common clichés. The plot doesn't focus on a rise to the top, but reads more like a large detective story, with the truth behind the mystery being revealed bit by bit. My only issue with the story is the resolution: both stories have a nice resolution, but the resolution of the mystery is overshadowed by the resolution of the love story, which is not half as interesting.
Can i just say how much i love how the author used the characters. I do hate how Wei Wuxian is an oblivious little shit, speaking of that, I read the summary and the last part killed me "his archenemy" like???? far from it dude 😡 please say sike and change it to "husband",,, they're married and have a son and,, and,, they're just so in love bro 🥺🥺 please read it. anyways, back to the more 'serious' side, i liked how the authour didn't really have a "bad guy" considering everyone had their reasons to do things. But the only person i love is Wei Wuxian <333 (as you can tell from my pfp) i'm still not over this fandom desipte only finding out about it over the summer,,, highly recommend checking out the donghua and the other adaptions!! xiao zhan and wang yibo did a great job with the drama, that also goes for the others in the other adaptions!! P.S. if you liked this novel, suggest checking out SVSSS and Heaven Officals Blessing. They're also very good!! TL;DR I love Wei Wuxian more than anyone else in this novel, please read it.
