Sect department The punctilious and petty jerk in charge of registration department who is also a noble gives the MC an assignment likely to kill him as punishment for failing to register Never mind the fact that there was no way for the MC know about the department sooner or that this happens with nough freuency that the Groove: An Aesthetic of Measured Time elder that put the MC to work had a bet with himself about how long it would take the MC to realize he had to register his work assignment Again the nobles are bizarrely uniformly petty but united Where s the underling that hopes to move up and so reports the registrar s inappropriate behavior to the registrar snemies Such a ridiculously petty and vindictive individual would have made plenty of One Wild Weekend enemies at the sect but the author can t be bothered to put thought into anyone s actions but the MCsIn spite of the foregoing Injoyed 34ths of this book since most of it focuses on the MC s journey The problem is the poorly written antagonists are key to the story and virtually the Forgetful of Their Sex entire focus of the final chapters Which leads me to this book s next problem a weak resolutionThe book has a small culmination with the MC accomplishing something fairly impressive However he does this by greatly antagonizing all the nobles since they are completely uniform in their actions and thoughts The nobles were already riskingverything to just bully the MC so this book Naturally Naughty Wicked Willing essentiallynds with the start of a serious class war This of course significantly undermines any sense of story resolution So this author appears to be yet another in a long line that attempts to get readers to come back for the rest of the story rather than because they are actually good writersBottom line Largely an okay read but not particularly inspired with truly poorly written antagonists This is one of the books I read for SPFBO 2019I have to say this book is uite different to a lot of the others in the batch It s a story which focuses primarily on martial arts with a strong influence from ChineseAsian cultures There is a magic called Cultivation where you infuse your body with healing magic and Chi and you can channel through the meridians The practice is almost like a meditation techniue but also something which you can nhance with time and determinationWe follow Wu Ying a young peasant who is from a poor family but striving to do better and join the inner sect He s not rich or ualified in the same way many of his competitors are but he has determination and desire and is willing to push on through the challenges and obstaclesWhat I like about this title is the is willing to push on through the challenges and obstaclesWhat I like about #this title is the on the martial arts techniues and the culture There #title is the on the martial arts techniues and the culture There a good story there but the basis in reality and inspiration was clear to see and to njoy whilst consuming the story I found some small spellinggrammar issues but most were minor and did not pull me too far out of the storyline Overall it s a start to what could become a fun story I think it s a bit sprawling and it certainly has a few directions that the narrative is trying to go but once you get to know the character and his personality you can t help but to njoy his ualities although sometimes I think he did scape some situations a little too Cruel Attachments: The Ritual Rehab of Child Molesters in Germany easily and unscathed I gave it a 35s in thend as it was certainly different nough to be memorable and one that I think ntertained me too Definitely a good start point with Wuxia novels too.
