You think too much, cultivation is not like this ... ...
When Kong Hou steps on the path to cultivation, she learns that all xianxia stories are full of lies.
A relaxed cultivation story.
Kong Hou: a traditional musical instrument like a harp. The female protagonist's name.
Translator review: Yes, another novel of Yue Xia Dia Ying. Do I read other novels? Yes. Do I really want to translate those? Mostly not. To describe this novel, I would say this is the author stepping out of her usual range. The romance progresses slowly (don't say I did not warn you), the world-building is much better than usual, more cultivation fantasy fare than historical romance, and stuffed so full of sweetness you get cavities. Also, for a bit of turn of events, there's not a dark, brooding, and mastermind male counterpart to a scheming, intelligent and time-travelling female protagonist. Time-travelling to a magical cultivation world might just be a bit too much, no?
But as always, a happy ending.
