The First Step A Thousand Li #1

Long Wu Ying never expected to join a Sect or become a real cultivator His days were spent studying planting rice on the family farm and spending time with his friends Fate however has different plans for Wu Ying and when the army arrives at his village he and many other members of the village are con. This is one of the books I read for SPFBO 2019I have to say this book is uite different to a lot of the others in the batch It s a story which focuses primarily on martial arts with a strong influence from ChineseAsian cultures There is a magic called Cultivation where you infuse your body with healing magic and Chi and you can channel through the meridians The practice is almost like a meditation techniue but also something which you can enhance with time and determinationWe follow Wu Ying a young peasant who is from a poor family but striving to do better and join the inner sect He s not rich or ualified in the same way many of his competitors are but he has determination and desire and is willing to push on through the challenges and obstaclesWhat I like about this title is the emphasis on the martial arts techniues and the culture There is a good story there but the basis in reality and inspiration was clear to see and to enjoy whilst consuming the story I found some small spellinggrammar issues but most were minor and did not pull me too far out of the storyline Overall it s a start to what could become a fun story I think it s a bit sprawling and it certainly has a few directions that the narrative is trying to go but once you get to know the character and his personality you can t help but to enjoy his ualities although sometimes I think he did escape some situations a little too easily and unscathed I gave it a 35s in the end as it was certainly different enough to be memorable and one that I think entertained me too Definitely a good start point with Wuxia novels too

    There are seven types of conflict in literature man v man man v nature etc Cultivating books are set up to be man v self except here Here the author pretty much ignores that in favor of a man v society approach The MC is a commoner who makes it into a cultivation sect at the same time as a young noble from his hometown For some reason this

    Needle in the HaystackNormally finding a decent English translated Wuxia novel is a bit of a struggle Oftentimes I feel like it comes down to whether you are okay with grammatical errors or poorly written stories This has none of those problems and many of the positives The character is practical and doesn’t benefit from some magical ring or item that makes him super talented Instead he is a grinder from the lowest rung of soc

    A wuxia for those not familiar with the genre Most of the time wuxia novels have this weird way of writing that often would got lost in translation This novel is written in the ways western readers of epic fantasies could easily enjoy both in form and structure while staying true to the motifs and themes of wuxia stories This is
