Powder Powder and more Powder

I liked the story and it has its moments but one thing that gets kinda repetitive after a while is his work with his powders. I don't think there is a single chapter in this book where he doesn't mention his powder.
Time to train let's grab some powder, oh no my friends need to get stronger let's make extra batches of powder for them. etc

downhill

I'f book 2 made you have doubts i'd say give up as it's all downhill from here.

There was a lot that i liked in book 1, but by now most of it by now has gotten lost or ruined.

What we started with was a main character focused story with a deep magic system and characters growing stronger by exploring the magic system and putting in a lot of effort. All of that is gone, Now it's just using powders and listening to what some old guy tells you to do. Characters used to get stronger fast, but now there's barely no chance in skills or abilities from start to finish.

The party size change ruined action scenes. I find this to be a common blunder in premise heavy fantasy stories, but in any case we went from action scenes where one or few characters used their abilities in creative ways to having a bunch of one trick characters do nothing of note and still prevail by some silly deus ex machina type bs.

The romance sideplot turning into harem is weird. The harem candidates are very similar characters to start with so what's the point.

Modern knowledge. They like to talk about things, but they never do anything with any of it. It reads like reading random wikipedia pages. Just mansplaining some modern concept and we never hear anything about it again.

I loved book 1 and ended up listening it from start to finish in one day. Book 4 took me weeks to get to half way and i refunded it. I think the author of the first book was replaced by an AI that just keeps repeating all of the same stuff on and on again.

In a sense you could say that more stuff happens in this and the next book i'll give it that, but at the same time this story is so focused in magic and crafting and that part is so much worse than it was at the beginning that it feels like it's all filler.

The story is good. I can't say I loved the reader

I enjoyed the story. The reader seemed to focus a a pre-order audience which I am not.

Another excellent book in the series!

This book is an excellent example of a cultivation novel! Unlike many other cultivation novels it is not heavy-handed when it comes to dealing with the sects and nobility. Many other cultivation novels portray sects and nobility as borderline evil, but this book does a good job of showing some of the good qualities you can find with them.
