Publisher's Summary

Immortal cultivators are outlaws. They are hunted and executed, and their magic is illegal.

Anti-cultivation propaganda posters are plastered on every street corner. The Counter-Cultivation Division investigates, the elite Black Corpses are sent in for the kill. None are spared. Mercy does not exist.

But did the cultivators really bring the War of Tribulation? Are they actually responsible for the Heavenly Curse? Are they truly the bloodthirsty psychopaths the government paints them to be?

Wang Fan, a homicide detective, believes that officers like himself are tasked with championing the rights of the common citizens. But when a seemingly routine case goes awry, he finds himself dragged into the darkness of the cultivation world. By the time he realizes the Black Corpses have their sniper rifles aimed at the back of his head, Wang Fan has no choice.

He has to fight the system to survive.

barely a cultivation novel

this book was such a let down. it barely has any cultivation in it. it has multiple adults who have teenage maturity when it come to romance and feelings. most of the book is them talking to each other and rescuing the same person over and over again. I came to for the spin on cultivation but there was barely any in it.

When's the next one?

Loved it. Can't wait for the next one to come out! Main point I liked was there wasn't an insane amount of boot licking (I.e. "this humble one trembles before masters strength! Please let this humble one serve new master!" - I find this dialogue annoying but luckily it's not in this book (: )

Great Narrator, Pretty Good Story

Honestly, the narration alone makes this worth listening to in your free time. I really enjoyed the MC's cop-like attitude and the personal anecdotes that he tells himself about his family's cop stories that let us understand his moral compass. Very well done.

Amazing.

Been a very long time since I was captured by a story like this and I couldn't stop listening.
It's a very well written book with very few dull moments.
Could my favourite performance from Travis as well.

CyberPunk with Cultivation

I was a bit unsure about this book in the beginning but as it progressed I was hooked.
The mix of cyber-punk and cultivation worked well together. The world building was great, the characters were really well developed and the story, although a bit over the top towards the end (should be expected, it's fantasy after all) was solidly written. The cultivation system complimented the feeling of the story and was not too difficult to understand.

Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Brilliant start to an epic noir progression serie

Not one for writing reviews but this is a must recommendation for anyone looking for a well written noir, post-apocalypse, cyperpunk cultivation/progression serie. Love the story, characters and the absolutely amazing settings. Brilliant narration by Travis Baldree as always. Can't wait for the next instalment.
