Summary

Contains books 3 and 4 of Condemning the Heavens.

Stars Are Falling, book 3 

In the continent of Chang'an, humans had lived as livestock and slaves to the primordial beasts. These beasts were ferocious, bloodthirsty, and overwhelmingly powerful, but even so, the humans managed to prevail in the face of despair. As the human race grew stronger the primordial beasts fought back with relentless fierceness, rousing beast hordes to engage in frenzied battles over the land. Every single child on the continent was taught martial arts for the sake of fighting these primordial beasts, yet many of them were sent straight to their death. 

In this world filled with constant battle, a young boy was born. This young boy was hoping to become the most outstanding cultivator, but who would have thought that his talent was so poor that he could not even cultivate? As the boy was filled with despair over his unfortunate situation, a life-changing event occurred which would forever leave a scar in his mind, pushing him to transcend his limits and grow to become a legend. 

Tears of the Soaring Dragon, book 4 

Parting with Jiang Fengmian and the Vermilion Forest Kingdom, Xue Wei and Hei Gou continue their journey towards the center of the continent. On their way, they encounter the Black Iron Fortress, an imposing citadel hosting a high-stakes tournament which could change their lives - or end it. Allured by the chance to grow stronger and gain precious resources, both man and beast halt their march towards the center of the continent to participate in the deadly tournament. But just who is behind it all? 

Mortal danger, hidden treasure, and a bittersweet reunion await Xue Wei and Hei Guo in the Skyward Empire as secrets start to unravel and the truth is laid bare for all to see.

A dog and his boy

This was a good book and I wasn't expecting the ending... much to think about as we wait for the next book. I liked the tournament and the auction, the auction was really good. we still need to understand this world and we are still having elements uncovered.

Always Running

It's getting annoying. They're always running away from everything. Run from bullies, run from bullies dads, run from city, run back to city, run back out of city, run run run. It's becoming such an overused trope.

addictive mess

Let’s start with the bad...
Character dialogue is poor
MC has no/very few redeeming qualities - kill and/or rob everyone for ....reasons.
Words and lines are repeated, constantly
Narration is poor. One of the voices sounded like John Wayne and I’m pretty sure Rob Ruggle narrated some of it. Basically it’s not a speech pattern i would associate with wuxia/xianxia.

The good
Call it a guilty pleasure but i found the story to be addicting. I believe it’s because the MC feels no remorse for anything. Would I recommend it? Probably but I would absolutely feel the need to share my complete impression vs just saying yes.
MC is OP so there is never any pressure or stress listening to the story. I don’t usually like this but it does make for a relaxing listening experience.

i rage quit after the first half of the book

I shouldn't have bought this book its a waste of time I convinced my self that the the author would read the reviews from book 1 like a decent author does but no, the main character is still a stupid cold blooded a hole with twisted morals and nonsensical principals like if someone​ treats me well ill repay them ten fold and if they treat me with hostility my vengeance will one thousand times harsher. on the surface this seemed ok but he takes it literally and what about who has no beef with someone oh yea ill just kill them quickly for no reason and yes that does happen. the book is basically all about making the main character seem "COOL"and it makes it seem like and made him kind of seem like a psychopath witch is a person suffering from a chronic mental disorder with abnormal or violent social behaviour witch is the perfect description of the mc I mean think it, he doesn't even blink when his uncle kills that guy on the street, he spent years in solitude only speaking to his uncle, he basically gets an orgasm every time he kills someone or is around bloodshed and he doesn't feel any sexual attraction for anybody except for that one relationship that he had wit the wayfarer that made me want to vomit from how cheesy and cliche it was a mean we all know thai its going to work out so just do something unexpected and kill her off and then make hi go on a rampage because he is a psycho.
so don't forget to like and and don't buy this book and if you do I told you so I told yo so I mother f*ucking told you so. IDIOT

Loved it

Loved this book, and the ones that came before it. The author isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty, I feel that’s what’s wrong with many authors now. Everyone wants to play it safe and every character is a goody two shoes. Hope he doesn’t change his style.
