After an explosion, You XiaoMo finds that he is now a probationary disciple of the TianXin sect. However, he is one with dubious potential, so just when he starts to adapt to his new circumstances, he receives a piece of bad news. If he is unable to produce the required result after half a year to become an official disciple of the TianXin sect, he would be driven out of the sect. While You XiaoMo is going all out to make medicines and earn money, he runs into Ling Xiao. To his horror, he later discovers that Ling Xiao is really someone cloaked in human skin.
Read this if you want: A Cultivation novel that isn't focused around face slapping but rather an 'adventure-esque' novel centering around the romance of the two main protagonists. Consistent comedy which centers around character traits Consistent story telling with a light hearted undertone, the first fifty chapters practically set the tone for the rest of the story. Story (Slight Spoilers Ahead): I really liked the story, every plot point is resolved in a semi-realistic manner, though you can definitely tell the plots the author didn't want to pursue were axed. The arcs in the story definitely had good antagonists that had more character traits than just 'arrogant' though without a doubt, I believe the first arc to definitely be the best. However, saying that, the rest of the arcs were good, just not as amazing as the first. Only complaint would be that pill-refining is used more as a narrative plot device (as in "Oh, I have to refine this pill to save X from Y and to do so I have to reach level Z") instead of exploring the different use of the pills (which I would've found interesting). There is one major plothole in the last arc, but there's an implied solution (or assumption of a solution) so it doesn't really matter. Characters: The MC is a greedy tsundere with an intact moral compass, while the ML is a yandere who beyond the initial blackmailing doesn't do anything 'evil'. Both of them grow as characters throughout the book, as the MC becomes less naive and more powerful while the ML becomes less yandere. Very few side characters get their lime in the spotlight, and most of the contracted beasts get their personalities distilled to one character trait so don't expect much from them.
