I think the reason that he doesn't make another Grandmaster scuplture is because he's reached such perfection in Stone Sculpting that every sculpture he makes, even if it's just casually is the same level as Awakening From the Dream and pretty much even higher. He's basically perfected stonesculpting.
Most of these complaints are unfounded and they were explained. For example, Wushan township was destroyed, people killed; however the buildings would be in ruins. Afterwards, Linely's people which consists of a God (bro) & Demi-God (panther) would restore that area. A lot of the complaints are answered if you finished reading the entire book. Other people's complaints are similarly not good. A truly good complaint: The ending was a let down. The story was written well since you enjoyed some aspect of reading it. Not really very magical world vs other fantasy magical realms. Linely is like a 1 trick poney, using his strongest techniques all the time; however diff situations should require diff techniques etctoo tired to writei will say it was a good read overall despite its short comings (mainly the ending)
