Transcending The Nine Heavens


Title: 傲世九重天 (Transcending The Nine Heavens)

Author: 风凌天下

Description:

Chu Yang, the Ninth Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword, sacrificed almost everything he had for the sake of improving his martial arts, including the love of his life. After spending three years locating the fifth fragment of the Nine Tribulations Sword, he was ambushed by all sides at that very place. Mortally injured with no means of escape, Chu Yang executed a sacrificial technique by plunging the Nine Tribulations Sword into his very own heart. “With the blood of my heart, ten thousand tribulations will collapse!”

After witnessing the death of all his ambushers, Chu Yang’s vision began to darken. At a distance, moments before his death, he saw the mastermind who had plotted his downfall — Mo Tian Ji, the elder brother of his beloved. With that, his eyes finally closed.

However, with a start, Chu Yang once again awoke to find that he had returned to when he was sixteen years of age! Furthermore, the Sword Spirit of the Nine Tribulations Sword now resided within his Dantian, the energy center of his body! From that very moment, Chu Yang would then begin to right all of his past regrets, and carve his very own legend by fulfilling his destiny as the final Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword, and defeating the Heavenly Devils beyond the realm of the Nine Heavens Continent.

Personal Review: This novel is very well written, The characters are well written, they all have their own unique personalites which are well filled out and greatly portrayed. one of the best point of this novel is its portrayal of  the antagonists as the readers feel respect for the mc's enemies and look forward to how the mc will defeat them instead of disliking the enemies like in many other novel. the plots of the protagonist and the antagonist and various people are all extremely deep and brillent. with each other trying to counter each other with their plans and calculations. 1 on 1 fights isn't the main focus of this novel unlike for exemple MGA, the main points and planning, calculations and plots. The written style is very artistic with many poetic devices and poetic lines. I highly recommend reading this novel if your interested in those brainy novels with smart and calculating protagonist and antagonist, in this novel its not "Strength is everything" but "Planning and smarts are the importent points".

    Setting of the Story

      The Story of the protagonist ( Chu Yang) takes place in the Nine heaven continent, originally a single plane that was filled with many races with each race having their own top experts and place to live in, which continent each race lived in was determined by their strength, the humans who had several top experts won the right to live in the best continent. thousands of years passes with nothing changing due to these experts but eventually they disappeared one after another and humanity's strength starts to decline while the other race began to rise, eventually they start to attack each other and the humans but at this point a single man appeared with a single sword. this man was supremely powerful and challenged each race's top expert to a fight and defeated them one after another. eventually this man used his power to reform the Nine heaven continent in to 9 equal layers with each layer occupied by a single race the humans occupied the very top layer. but this space and layers were unstable which resulted in its collapse, this collapse was an apocalyptic event with the sky literally falling on the top of the living beings of these layers, this collapse caused the extinction/disappearance of many races such as the Dragon race, Phoenix race, Elven race, and the Devil race. Following this collapse that man was "ashamed" that the 9-layers he created collapsed thus he merged the lowest 2 lays into 1 and putting it on the bottom, the middle 2 layers into 1 and putting it into the middle, and the top 5 layer into 1 and putting it into the top. these 3 layers from now then are called the Low-Heavens, The Mid-Heavens, and the High-Heavens respectively. But these 3 heavens are still called the 9-Heavens as a monument for the disappeared races.Afterwards the man separated his swords to many pieces and used the pieces to perfect these 3-layers and stabilize the space, this sword afterwards was called the 9-tribulation sword he then left the nine-heaven continent and disappeared. afterwards once every 10-thousand years these pieces would be found and a master of the 9-tribulation sword would be born, this 9-tribulation sword master would fight his way up through the 3 heaven's layer to the High-Heaven, and whenever this master appears the nine great family of the high-heavens would be destroyed and 9 new family would rise up to be the top families for the next 10-thousand years until a new 9-tribulation sword master is born. These Nine family would be created by the sons of the 9 Tribulations, or in other-words the nine sworn brothers of the Nine tribulation sword master, The reason the Nine Family are created by their sons is because every generation's Sword Master and his Nine brothers disappears after destroying the Nine great families. Those who are knowledgeable knows that the sword master and the nine brother's destiny is to repair the sky and stabilize the Nine-Heavens Continent to prevent another collapse, they would sacrifice themselves for the safety of all the people in the Nine-Heavens Continent, and this age's nine-tribulation sword master is our protagonist Chu Yang.

    Spoiler:
    This story is actually a "False Story" as the real story of the Nine Tribulation Sword is only known to perhaps 3 man, For the man whom all thought to be the creator of the nine tribulation sword was nothing of the kind, he was only a courier of sorts that brought the sword to the Nine-Heaven Continent at the bidding of its true creator. This "Courier" is none other then Xue Le Han, the Eastern Emperor of the Nine True Heavens one of the Nine Emperors One Empresses of the Nine True Heavens and Rules the Eastern Heavens.

    The Wandering Beauty - Zi Xie Qing
    Reality: The Mysterious mistress of the Black Blood Forest, she takes an interest in Chu Yang when he tried to pass through her domain, and travels with him attracting many perverts to attack them due to her beauty.
    her story is extremely late in the book as arguably she is the main heroine of the first half of book 3, and the main heroine of the last parts of the novel. thus anything about her contains alot of spoilers thus I will refrain for bit on her.

    The Nine Tribulations:
    The Sword Emperor - Gu Du Xing
    Dream: The 2nd young master of the Gu Family, one of the great families of Mid-heaven. at the time of Chu yang's death he was a Rank 9 Sword king and was one of the 12 great young masters of the Mid-Heavens. Called the lonely traveller by the people of Mid-heaven due to his habit of fighting alone.
    Reality: Gu Du Xing is called one of the young genius of mid-heavens and the adopted son of the Gu family's Master he himself is the son of 2 Gu family members who died in battle, but unknown to many people his cultivation's rapid advance was due to his step sister giving him many precious medicines which he doesn't know that she stole from the family. One day to help him advance she stole a precious medicine that was reserved for the ancestor of the Gu family for his breakthrough to Emperor Level. For this crime she was sentenced to the Eternal Ice Cave for eternity, it was at this point that Gu Du Xing realized what she has done for him and that she loved him and him her. Afterwards his adopted father tried to set an engagement for him, in reaction to this he ran away from the Gu family but during his escape he had forgotten to take any gold with him. as he escaped he sold many of his possessions that he had on him for food, eventually he reached Iron Cloud City where he was forced to try to use his Divine-Weapon to temporally exchange for some gold, but unwilling to give it to anyone who doesn't love swords he entered a shop which Chu Yang had opened. This meeting with Chu Yang in Iron Cloud City will forever change his life.

    Reality: The young genius of the Dong family - a family that specializes in blades, he grow up worshipping and loving his elder brother never thinking of trying to steal the position of the 1st master, but due to his talent his elder brother couldn't help but try to suppress him in order to solidify his own position. One day he was found by Gu Du Xing to come join a faction in the Low-Heavens, when he refused he was beaten till he agreed to go. At the Low-Heavens he found this faction's leader was a youth called Chu Yang, and from this meeting on he would step on a different road then before.

    The Godly Thief - Rui Bu Tong
    Dream: The greatest thief in the middle heavens, he is a friend of Gu Du Xing and would come to his aid whenever he needed.
    Reality:

    The Divine Schemer - Mu Tian Ji
    Dream: The second young master of the Mu family, he is known for his calculating nature. He is the man who set the trap that would eventually kill Chu Yang for his part in his beloved sister Mu Qing Wu's Death.
    Reality:

    The Lone Swordsman - Ji Mo
    Dream: The second young master of the Ji Family, a friend of Gu Du Xing.
    Reality

    The Evil Prince - Ao Xie Yun
    Dream: The first young master of the Ao Family, Ao family is the Strongest family of the Middle Heavens.
    Reality

    The Wolf Prince - Luo Ke Di
    Dream: The second young master of the Luo family, a friend of Gu Du Xing.
    Reality

    The Jade Flower - Xie Dang Qiong
    Dream: The first young master of the Xie Family, a powerful family of the Middle Heavens.
    Reality

    The Antagonist:
    The Master of Plots - Diwu Qingro
    Dream: The true leader of the Zhao Empire, from the shadows he controlled all the powers of state. It was said that he is an unrivaled genius that appears once in thousands of years, born from a common family and unknowing of any martial arts yet he is still respected by both scholars and Martial artists. His Secret force the Golden Knights Temple is the one of the strongest force in the Low-Heavens with tens of thousands of experts loyal to him alone. He eventually conquered the Iron Cloud Empire, followed by the Wuji Empire and eventually would unite the Low-Heavens under his rule.
    Reality:
    The Story of him being from a common family and unknowing martial arts were all lies fabricated by him, far from a common family he hails from the Diwu family a vassal of the Zhuge family one of the nine great family of the High-Heavens, And Instead of not knowing martial arts His cultivation is that of a Martial Emperor. He came to the Zhao Empire and worked his way up the ladders of the power for a secret agenda. He is a great believer in astrology and the reason he went to south and Zhao was due to the Emperor star and the Fate Star being in the south. but with the appearance of Chu Yang fate would be changed, and Heaven's will would be reversed.

    Other Characters:
    The Demon King - Tan Tan

    The Black Killer - Mo Lei Er

    The Poison Lady - Chu Lei Er

    The Mother - Yang Rou Lan

    The Father - Chu Fei Ling

    The Blade King Supreme - Ning Tian Ya

    The Sword King Supreme  - Bu Liu Qing

    The Moon Light Supreme -Yue Ling Xue

    The Soft Wind Supreme - Feng Yu Rou

    The Eastern Emperor - Xue Lei Han


    The Reason I separated the events of the 1st life and the 2nd into dream/reality is due to how the author answered the question that if the 1st life was real and if those events had actually happened, as Chu Yang sort of went through a spiritual crisis when he thinks that what if the current Mu Qing Wu wasn't the one he fell in love with and that the "real" had died and this 2nd life was just another parallel world type of deal. The way Xue Le Han explained to Chu Yang was this; What if one day when you were 16 years old you had a dream, in this dream you dreamed that the Outer heaven sect was going to be destroyed, you dreamed that you found the nine-tribulation sword pieces, you dreamed that you had met a girl named Mu Qing Wu and fell in love with her, and you dreamed your death, but when you woke up you found that your once again 16 but those events from the dream will play out the way they do if you do what you did in your dream. but you changed those events, as the outer heaven sect was not destroyed, Iron Cloud did not fall, and Mu Qing Wu's fate was changed as well. so your previous "life" was only a dream, for only you remenber those events, of course they were real but they were only real for you as the previous life only existed for you. ( note this isn't exactly how Xue Le Han said it, but the gist was this.)

    Martial Cultivation Ranks

    Martial/Sword/Blade Arts Ranks:
    Martial/Sword/Blade Apprentice
    Martial/Sword/Blade Scholar
    Martial/Sword/Blade Warrior
    Marital/Sword/Blade Master
    Martial/Sword/Blade Ancestor (Great Master)
    Martial/Sword/Blade Reverend (Honour)
    Martial/Sword/Blade King
    Martial/Blade Emperor             Sword God
    Martial/Blade Lord                   Sovereign Of Swords
    Martial/Blade Saint                 Lord Saint Of Swords
    Martial/Blade Supreme            Lord Supreme Of Swords

    For the Emperor Rank the Marital and Blade Practitioners are called Emperors, but for Sword Practitioners they are call Sword Gods. the Chinese for these are Wu Huang and Jian Di. Both Huang and Di can be translated as Emperor, but in this case Di can also mean God to differentiate between the ranks. Once a Sword God takes out his sword everyone will immediately recognize that he is a Sword God due to every sword present simultaneously "Worshipping" the Sword God, because a Sword God is a Emperor among swords and all swords will recognize one.

    The Reason for this distinction in the Nine Heaven Continent is due the presence of the Nine Tribulation Sword and its master, thus the Sword holds a very honoured place within the hearts of the people. This distinction notably does not exist in the True Nine Heavens as no-one there has even heard of the Nine Tribulation Sword far less honouring it.

    - Needless to say the ranks after Emperor for Sword is a mess, the ones I put here are the stylized yet "Correct" translation of what is in the book, but essential at Emperor a Sword Emperor is called a Jian Di instead of Huang which is used by everyone else, at Martial Lord a sword user is called Jian Zhong Di Jun(instead of Wu Jun etc), which could translated to Emperor Lord within Swords or Lord Emperor within sword OR Sovereign/ Lord Sovereign within/of Swords. at the Saint level they called Jian zhong Sheng Jun (Instead of Wu Sheng etc) which is Saint Lord within swords OR Lord Saint within/of Swords. well you get the point, in other words its a clusterf***.

    Cultivation Ranks of the True Nine Heavens:
    Mysterious Level
    Spirit Level
    Mortal Level (People? Person? Man? Chinese is 人)
    Earth Level
    Heavens Level
    Holy Level
    Sage Level
    Saint Level

    Supreme Level in the Nine-Heavens Continent is the Mysterious Level in the True Nine Heavens, In other lower planes when a cultivator reaches the Supreme Level they can Shatter Space Condense Spirit and ascend to the True Nine Heavens as their existence greatly affect a lower plane due to their great power. But in the Nine-Heaven Continent one have to reach Peak rank 9 supreme to shatter space condense spirit, or in other-words they have to reach near the Mortal Level or even approaching the Earth Level to ascend to the True Nine Heavens.

    This part is somewhat confusing in the novel, due to the fact the Supreme Level in the Nine Heaven Continent Spans across both the Mysterious Level and the Spirit Level, In the Novel there is a dividing line in the Supreme Level and this is Supreme Rank 6 as Supremes above rank 6 are far more powerful then those below it, which is quite possibly the point where one enters the Spirit Level. thus after Supreme rank 9 it is the Mortal Level.

    Important Terms

This terms includes the various sects, gangs, and factions that exist as well as the forces of the underworld and those who travel the world seeking martial prowess and fame.

At this point he was struck by anger at this realization and swears that he will change fate, this sentiment awakens the sword spirit once again and he approvingly thunders out that heaven's will and fate are nothing and it is within Chu Yang's power to deny heaven's will and reverse fate.

    Its nice to see somone taking up the job to translate this, this novel is very well written and therefore very hard to properly translate. Inside the novel there are many poetic devices, word plays, poems, and profound lines so translating it to english must be hell of a job.
  • Yes to your question about adding more people to the spoiler section! Your writing is very informative and fun to read. I cannot wait to read more of this story. As long as the translation does not stop I won't either ahaha.
  • Nice, keep up the good work. I enjoy reading these. 
  • Guys is there some other thread/site with more detailed spoilers? Also which MT is best for reading this novel. I tried bing but it gives me headache trying to piece together coherent information.

    Mine is actually pretty detiled, I didn't want to incorprate like a step by step spoiler. I stoped where i did on Book 1 since that is roughly where the translation is and I was applying to help with the Translation ( pretty much got ignored by the translator XD) so i might just continue and finish off the spoilers here.
  • Can some1 tell me how the MC progresses with Mu Qing Wu , does she fall for him again? or does he marry more than once etc...
  • Currently where I'm at in the story, Mu Qing Wu is still a child.  She does love the MC but its more of innocent puppy love, she does want to marry him when she grows older.  Also currently he has expressed his feelings for Wu Qian Qian, but shes in a coma.  He also found out that Tie Bu Tian is a women and gave birth to his child, but shes in low-heaven and hes stuck in high-heaven.  There's hints of feelings being developed between Chu Yang and Zi Xia Qing, but she left the nine heaven continent.  So all the romance have stalled currently at chapter 1200.

    STOP RIGHT THERE!!!

    Tie Bu Tian bears Chu Yang's offspring?! When does all this happen??
  • Near the end of book 1, she uses her body to save him.  You know the typical lust poison trope.

    In the middle of books 3 It is revealed that Mu Qing Wu had dreams of the past life, and at one point her personality from the past "overwrote" her personality in the present, but after alot of things happen the 2 "personalities" basicly merge. Her past personality had alot of self esteem issue, and was almost slavish in her love to Chu Yang.

    He marries 4 girls at the end of the Novel, one hiralous thing is the way each girl was ranked when he gave up the invitation to the wedding, needless to say someone was pretty pissed off about how one of the girl was ranked at 4th since that girl was technically the most highly ranked one there.

    Can anyone post his power levels at the end of each book?

    Book 1 - Sword King
    Book 2 - Sword God
    Book 3 - High Mortal Realm ( close to peak) In Nine Heavens Continent it would be Beyond peak 9th level Lord Supreme of Swords.
    Book 4 - Beyond Nine Emperor One Empress Realm, Probably Saint Lord realm.

    And yes his harem is made of Wu Qian Qian , Mu Qing Wu, Zi Xie Qing, and Tie Bu Tian.
  • Questions:  
    - What is Chu Yang's real identity?  Does he ever meet/confront his real family and ask why he was abandoned?
    - What chapter does he complete the Nine Tribulation Sword?
    - Does his master ever find his wife if she's still alive?
    - What rank does Chu Yang reach in the end?
    - Tan Tan doesn't die a second time right?  
    - What rank is his master and why did he disappear?

     
  • What is Chu Yang's real identity?  Does he ever meet/confront his real family and ask why he was abandoned?
    His parents didn't abandoned him, they were attacked during a trip to mothers family.  They ran to low-heaven to escape, but the parents were badly injured so they left him and try to draw the enemies away.  They managed to find some magical plants that healed their injuries and went back for him but his master had already found him and taken him away. 

    He actually meets his father in mid heaven but doesn't reveal his identity because he is the sword master and doesn't want his family to be in danger. 

    What chapter does he complete the Nine Tribulation Sword?
    Hasn't happened at the point I'm at in the story, but i think at the end or near the end of book 3 should be when he completes it.

    Does his master ever find his wife if she's still alive?
    Yeah, he finds her in book 3. She's in high heaven and is part of the nine great families.

    What rank does Chu Yang reach in the end?
    Haven't reached that part

    Tan Tan doesn't die a second time right? 
    I don't think so, because he becomes a significant figure in book 2

    What rank is his master and why did he disappear?
    I don't remember him disappearing, he left for mid heaven with tan tan to not become a burden for Chu Yang in book 1.
