Novel Recommendations

I read Coiling Dragon and couldnt finish it, it was my introduction to wuxia...oops Chinese fantasy novels, maybe its xianxia or xiahuan or the others I cant tell but I dropped it about midway, it got ... lame for lack of a better word. I enjoyed Ark and was burnt out then StellarTransformation: I put it on hold as I did not enjoy the daddy's complex. Then I discovered I Shall Shatter The Heavens. Its been a lot of fun sadly it is not completed. I would like to watch something similar.  I dropped  Hero Sheds No Tears as I don't want to read anything about rape or sexual assault even if it is plot relevant.

Thanks in advance for your recommedation, anything like Royal Tramp in which all the female characters are not offed would be splendid

EDIT: Some nice pongyou  indicated a rape warning in Against The Gods so I passed on that. I would Ctrl+F and search rape on each show comment's page but that might not be so effective. Thanks in advance.
ISSTH- Very good...lost its heart but might be finding it again or maybe its in fan service phase
SOTR- Great 
COL- good..  fails at romance.

  • Seeing as you're a fan of IET, I'd recommend DE-Desolate Era- the story's great so far, without rape (so far)
    Others I'd really recommend are Skyfire Avenue, and Terror infinity, only problem is that in SA there is a kind of rape scene at the very beginning that stems from a misunderstanding (he mistook her for another person and she was unconscious...) so decide about that one.
    As for TI, it's another one of the greats, but rape exists there, although not done in front of/by the MC, and it is only mentioned afterwards.
    And lastly, another novel by the author of ISSTH which you like is Xian Ni, or Renegade Immortal as it is known 'round here, and this one is rape free up untill where I've got to.
  • By the way, what's your reading list? I like your taste in novels and maybe I'll find another novel or two to follow.

    Thanks for the reply
    I am currently reading Warlock of Magus World, it has a funny in your face premise: every MC gets a cheat sheet, why hide in other fanciful words like fate lol but  sadly parts of it are child pornography or shotacon. I read about a man from Europe while I was in the US who was arrested at a French airport for possessing child pornography, he had a Japanese manga. Maybe the standards in Asia are just different from the Western World.
    The main reason I skip rape in media is the human propensity to wickedness and apathy. I think we underestimate how wicked we can be. I dont want to be desensitized to rape in media.
    On shotacon, I googled a Japanese drama titled ..something boys and ended up on a gag wiki on a specific shotacon, I think they are legal in Japan but I dont care enough to check

    EDIT: I  hope I have no more typos lol.
    By the way after reading Coiling Dragon, I wished I could read a story where the main character was called Leylin as I preferred that character to Linley ,surprisingly the tooth fairy granted my wish haha
    ISSTH- Very good...lost its heart but might be finding it again or maybe its in fan service phase
    SOTR- Great 
    COL- good..  fails at romance.

  • ooh id recommend Skyfire Avenue too!! Im reading it right now and i can say its really awesoomme, its different from the usual cultivation novels, mc starts out strong, the chars keep on talking about wine making it somewhat slow paced, but after chap 10 its really nice. there is uhm sex without consent, but i dont think it qualifies as rape :| i think. Nevertheless, its really great!
  • Thanks for the reply I started SOTR and its awesome, its nice to see an actual adult main character lol
    COL is silly and the romance poor, I enjoyed  ISSTH because romance was relatively ignored and only mentioned, since romance is not most "wuxia" writers strong suit.
    You are right about Skyfire, a little slow and disappointing  right now I am at chapter 3
    ISSTH- Very good...lost its heart but might be finding it again or maybe its in fan service phase
    SOTR- Great 
    COL- good..  fails at romance.

  • Hey guys I just wanted to suggest to yo'll a few good novels i read sometime back there or many more i have but heres just a few that i strongly recommend looking into they or both base on city instead of ancient time like chaos sword of god and the others. and both or center around bad ass type of mc who were strong from the begin and don't allow any one to run over them tho they still get stronger trough out the story. 

    the first one is My Beautiful wife president 
    the link for the raw is here but some chapters or mix up and repeats of the same chapters so for some you would have to serch up the chapter online to find the original this is only if you wish to use to raw text http://www.fxnzw.com/fxnchapter/38566.html

    If you just want the already translated version from machine and just want to correct the grammatical mistakes and some wording then i already have all the chapters in the right order  from when i read it on this link 
    https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B9XMV5I11ziWdW41cUYyaG5wbk0&usp=sharing ;

    synopses 
    so the genres of the book has Comedy/action/drama/fantasy/city/harem/romance and so on 
    The MC name is Yang Chang and he came back home to china after being abroad for almost all of his life to enter in to society and live a normal life
    but due to many un foreseen events cause to mc to give up on living a normal life and do what he desire. theirs plenty of action and drama and like i say it's build in modern time the harem is pretty big tho .-. but un like some story's most of the woman in it have a character and not just some fuck toy the mc is a full fledged bad ass with no one as his master or who he bow down to  except for maybe his mother and wife at times >_> 
    heres a sneak preview of some info on the mc 

    Yang Chen - Actor, looks ordinary, lazy temperament. A man wearing a ring of Pluto, with unknown mysterious past. Had grown up outside, he returned to China after the country selected in the vegetable market selling mutton string. A chance accident, get to know the beauty CEO multinational companies, as some obscure reason and can not bear seeing the woman as she is, promised to marry. Since then, the family of small contradictions, the beauty around began emerging one by one with trouble come it's way. Forgotten Realms (forgottenrealms) master. Eventually became the guardian of the world
    this book is really good so i really recommend you guys checking it out. the next one is  

    Drawing a master in the city 
    this is the link to the raw http://www.feizw.com/Html/1103/Index.html ;
    unlike the other one all the chapters or in the right order and if you use chrome you can just let it do automatic translate and copy it and edit it if you wish to just correct grammatical mistakes and wording and if not then just copy the raw
    both of these books are really awesome so i just wanted to put them out there in case no one have found them yet 

    I for one may like this one more then the one above. at some times this books mc is a true bad ass born to be wild and not any one in this world can control him even his wives can barely stop him at times genres or similar to above.

    instead of a synopses i'll just give info on the character bio read with caution cause it contains many spoilers here and there 

    M.C/ Summer/Xia   -A Teenage boy who came down from a secluded life in the mountains first time entering into the city after 16 years he's about more than one hundred and seventy centimeters tall and slim, looks not to handsome, actually gives the feeling of a bit delicate, dress unexciting. Upper body is a plain white T-shirt, pants or some white washed jeans, a pair of feet marching on yellowing white sports shoes, which together a full-line head, fear is not worth one hundred yen. 

    19 years old at the begin of the story claims to be the first master in the world and first doctor of the world. 

    His favorite word is idiot He likes to give nick names to each of his wives and claim all woman who are below the standard of  those he give title of his wife are ugly all who gets in his way are idiots he has the strongest self esteem and mouth with the power and skills to back it up. in the book no one can beat him in an argument.

    at a small age of about 3 was abandoned by his parents, grew up in Qingfeng hill, with three masters and fairy sister these 3 masters are the top in the world in there 

    respected field before the mc was created

    1 master is the top doctor *(nick name chef)  Guiyi Zhang Tuo,

    2 master is the top knife wielder and worlds top hitman *(Nick name kill God) Alan ,

    3 master is the top gunner and dark lord founder *( Nick name Dark emperor) Lu Ren  he hate

    personality and traits: is easygoing rouge who don't give a shit very narcissistic self confidence. Whenever he see’s a woman whom he believes qualified to be his wife will begin referring to them as his wife even if they refuse prone to tell the truth most times then lie and most people never believe him when he tells the truth usually never sweats or bath, rain never touches,snow never fall around him,wind never crosses his body every step is like gods. and people close or touch him has the same effect happen to them. he has super sensitive nose that once he smells some one he can track them with there scent once it hasn't dispel in the air yet he also has super sensitive senses for danger even in deep sleep. 

    most people think he is an idiot because of his straightforwardness and over the top ways of getting rid of trouble but it is the complete opisit he is shown to be one of the wises and smartest man in the book he just prefers to get rid of trouble the fastest way he knows by just destroying who ever gets in his way due to no matter how smart you are against absolute power it is nothing. Only when he can't use absolute power he relys more on his brain and uses some really crule ways to do it.
