Publisher's Summary

Includes books one and two of Dual Sword Gods, the epic tale of a warrior who wields two unparalleled swords.

Nirvana Rebirth, book one

A new life starts with the end of another, leading to the birth of an invincible legend. Born talentless into a life full of struggle, Feng Yu thought his dreams were only fantasies, including his hope of becoming a peak cultivator. Until one day, in a strange ancient ruin, he encounters an accident, one that transports his soul to another world, transforming his entire existence.

In the Bright Flame Kingdom, there's a small town known as Machen Town where a boy of age 15 called Feng Yu was beaten to death by the Xiang Clan's son. Upon his demise, a soul that had traveled through time and space quickly took over the body, merging as one new being. It was the soul of a martial cultivator from another world, also bearing Feng Yu's name.

Realizing that he now has a second chance at life, Feng Yu decided to take in his new identity in full stride. He chooses to pursue his goal of reaching the summit of martial arts through the arts of swordsmanship, all while gradually unearthing the powers of his mysterious bloodline and the world around him.

The Door of an Ancient Kingdom, book two

After a tiring trip to the Tydol Mountain Range, Feng Yu had finally made it home in one piece. The atmosphere in Machen Town is growing richer as the date for the Bright Flame Kingdom's Talent Selection approaches, causing many unusual characters to wander about town, eager to witness the battle of young elites. However, because of an unusual prophecy, the turnout is bigger than expected. Young elites from distant lands had traveled to partake in this competition, and a battle unlike anything seen before is set motion.

The mood for an astounding competition is rising to its peak, but so are the underworkings, shrouded by the competing atmosphere. Feng Yu and his newfound friends must now compete against these rising talents and unveil what truly hides beneath.

Terrible story & disturbingly negligent narration

This story is a awfully written cultivation story. The needs an editor desperately. Also the Author needs to focus on describing action more and painting the horizon less. While being able to world building is nice but if its heavy handed like it is in this book yikes. Also dialog doesn't match surroundings. There are modern world cultivation novels if you have an issues with authentic sounding speech for the setting. All the Bangs, sigh and screech sounds are entirely unnecessary if you just write the action leading up to event. Also, you don't need to include Chinese names and distort everything else. I'm not saying everyones names need to be Kevin, Bob or Sarah. However, saying his entire name over and over is just exhausting for a listener. The starting city's name was pretty Anglophonic; so why are the Characters names so "authentic?? ridiculous maybe; inconsistent yes.
Recommendation for the Author sit down and read this outloud and fix anything that is haunting or difficult to keep saying over and over; because its exhausting to listen to. Overall a poorly written story with a decent concept. Take whatever coins you get from this series and start a new series with an editor.

Narrator clearly didn't care to do a decent job. This is the first time I've heard a narrator actually say sigh as opposed to actually doing one. He is clearly a story reader and not a story performer. As a result I marked the "performance" low as it could go.

Why do I like this so much?

These types of books are so repetitive but super good. It’s like every other sentence is: ‘he/she was shocked’ or someone being prideful. I love it when the prideful people get put in there place. Hahaha. Also why is it that someone is so strong that it is shocking, but yet still so weak bc one person just shows up and shows out.
There was a dry spot in the middle though. Also no need for all the sound effects. Lol. Some were good but there were just to many.
Narrator on point as usual. I still feel like someone is super shockingly powerful every other sentence when he reads. Lol. Book is what you expect it to be. Also this book has a lot of other parts in it yet somehow it makes sense.

An excellent story

I really love this story, I’ve read both of these books before and now this audiobook is a great addition to the story though I must admit that it does have some very cliché moments. There are some phrases in this book that I repeated over and over and over to the point that you can just expect it to happen at certain points.

Walk down memory lane

What comes to mind is LitRPG for anime. I must say listening to this novel brought back memories of some anime I need to revisit. It may not be for everyone. Overall very enjoyable. Will need to do a slow listen to catch what I may have missed on the first listen.

Nooooo!

Sadly the story was performed by one of the great narrators on Audible, Kevin has an amazing line of books I have enjoyed listening too, Dragon Heart ect…..
But what the hell happened??? The performance is his worse and detracts from the story. Instead of coughing you say cough cough ??????????? Either invest in the story Kevin or get off the pot.
The story is pretty dope if not for the poorly executed narration. If this is the way the author wanted it performed then shame on Shadowfinger for shackling a amazing performer.

Fun story

Story was fun, it had some bleh things about it such as the useless use of making the narrator make “coughs” or such things the characters did that drove me crazy but over all a fun read. Does not have a deep cultivation explanation and what is mentioned is a convoluted. The author has trouble keeping different story lines together with all the names mentioned but overall a good read when you want cultivation

Worth a credit but...

this was an average cultivation story with typical plot and writing. Nothing amazing about it but still fun. If you haven't read them I would recommend Two Week Curse or Doa of Magic for their more descriptive cultivation systems over this series. or 1000 li for somthing more traditional.

Complete lack of inflection

The narrator is really unsuited to this type of story there is so little inflection in the tone of his voice so if the character is angry or swearing it sounds dumb

The narrator should be banned

Almost as bad as an AI reading this. Won't be getting any more audiobooks by this narrator.

We have some whiney babies in the reviews

I understand peoples complaints but Kevin is by no means a "bad" VA, there is no research or emphasis on interjections like "haha","hehe","che","jiji", or even *sigh. I am sure he knows that and I hope he no longer does that.

His narration is great though, amazing voice in comparison to others. He understands the tone of good story telling.

The story is a solid cultivation story, which i thoroughly enjoyed, the end got dragged a bit but doesn't take away from my experience. Will continue.
