Summary

Cheating Death 

Alex was willing to do whatever it took to beat the tumors overwhelming his body.  

Even if it meant being frozen alive. 

And if his cortex got uploaded into a digital universe filled with countless worlds to explore until a cure could be found for his cancer, all the better. 

The last thing he expected was to wake up naked and alone in the bowels of an ancient ship filled with raiders carrying enough poison to kill an entire city! 

The choices he makes from that moment on will have profound consequences not only for his own fate, but for an entire realm as he faces down bloodthirsty pirates, ruthless cultivators, and fearsome demigods while taking his first steps along a path of power that might one day forge him into a cultivator strong enough to challenge the very heavens themselves! 

Eager for a fast-paced Wuxia/LitRPG adventure filled with deadly adversaries, exotic adventures, and mighty cultivators fighting for the power to topple kingdoms? Then listen on!

Disturbingly Realistic

There is a reason most writers make these wuxia novels about native characters and that's because the cultural zeitgeist of pretty much all countries during the feudal times these stories parody were relentlessly racist and this book is no exception. The mc is reincarnated into a fantasy chinese world, he is a cultivator and has deity level meridians all good. The only problem is that he is foreigner. Cue constant racism from the already supremely arrogant cultivator caste further enhanced by being filter through the relentless naivety of a modern teenager.

Read if you are hard up for your wuxia/xianxia fix and don't mind having to read constantly about how the western barbarians sin against the ground they walk on seriously every conflict he has with people is plastered with their racism even his nominal allies have it.

Exciting, explosive action!

I need to start by saying I love the authors first series. When I saw a second series, rather than a continuation of the story I loved, I was a bit gutted, but I gave it a try...damn I’m glad I did! Alex is another fantastic MC, different to Valor, but so real! I can’t recommend this book highly enough, so all I’ll say is read it. Try it. Now more than ever we all need an honest hero and a world we can escape into!

It's just another Wuxia

Yea, its just another Wuxia.

You have the author pulling out the cancer card, to make you feel for bad the 17 year old MC. You have your typical racism that is just covered up by calling ANY foreigner a piece of garbage, bow to me before your better etc etc, Then you have your MC always getting his butt kicked with another terrible damn ending OH and the 50% of the book being inner monologue.

That is just another Wuxia.

One of the best

I loved the book. This has been a wonderful performance of it. I enjoyed this narrator in Endless Online. Reading out stats and enhancements like a gameshow host listing out fabulous prizes was genius. I'm so impressed with the lush descriptions. The narration brings intensity and feelings if real peril for Alex the hero. Wifi or silver fox the trickster god adds a lot to the epic feel. I love heros that both have to run for their lives and run right into the thick of things. Alex the cultivator is a superhero in my eyes, even though he's still an early culivator in thus story. I definitely recommend both the book and audiobook.
Score: 9.5 out of 10

Overuse of a thesaurus.

Overuse of the word utter. Overly flowery language that looks like the "passion of a thousand suns" model of description.

Found myself rolling my eyes, and muttering get on with it a lot.

Was reading reviews from the future books and it looks like cultivation speed will be extremely slow in this series.

Will just stick to the cradle series, this one doesn't match up at all.

I can only sacrifice so many brain cells

This will be the last book I buy by MH Johnson. I can no longer take sentences the size of paragraphs. I almost loved endless online, at least the first book. it was rough but I thought it was Johnson's first outing and could get better. I couldn't make it a tenth of the way through the second installment. Johnson came across as wanting to be Shakespearean , without the requisite level of talent. wuxia is one of my favorite sub genres so I had to give this a chance. I should have thrown in the towel earlier and received a refund. the main narrator goes from campy, to over-the-top, to stereotyping. I'm not going to say he's a bad narrator though. I think it was more of a content problem. the main female narrator is pretty good though. it's too bad as Johnson has a very fertile imagination. sentence structure is just too weak. Johnson's tendency to often make flowery speeches and structures especially in some situations are simply too frustrating. the lack of a diverse large cast also contributed to a less enjoyable story. I made it 80% of the way through this book.

don't read the epilogue

A relatively good book that I would've given another star if not for the authors tendency to mention mini mini times how terrified and scared and quivering in fear and whatever the main character is over every single thing.
That is until the epilogue the epilogue stinks on ice there is no part of it that I enjoyed in anyway shape or form.

Did not like the ending!

It was a fast paced book. I liked the story generally. To much cultivation for me personally. Once your invested into the main group of characters the story stops with a few minutes explanation to prepare for a new adventure maybe? Just left you feeling like what thats it.... Not sure if I'll buy book 2 unless it gets hard to find a book with litrpg or something similar.

Get Wuxia story

Very enjoyable story. If you love xianxia or wuxia definitely a must listen. I would not agree this is a typical story line. Worth a credit.
