Book/Novel Author: Apollos Thorne
Book/Novel Title: Heaven’s Laws – Prodigies
The apex of the martial arts calls out. It challenges all to ascend.
Long Chao is the son of a hedge mage—a heretic cultivator. He doesn’t cultivate for power, but to satisfy his endless curiosity.
One fateful day, Xiao Huifen, a girl aiming to be the youngest Sky Realm cultivator in the Monolith continent’s history, crashes into his life. She’s from the world of top-ranked sects and strict cultivation methodologies.
They share nothing in common except for the unquenchable desire to unlock heaven’s every mystery.
This is their journey.
However, the brightest glory casts the darkest shadow.
Strength begets brutality. Long-life begets the foulest perversions.
To those who dwell in the darkness, young cultivators such as them are nothing more than some of the finest resources.
To use them as slaves. Refine them into pills.
When faced with such depravity, this unorthodox pair must do all they can to survive. Even if they do, how can they hope to remain unchanged?
This is a coming-of-age story that follows two paths to power. For one, it’s long and arduous. Despite his unique insights, Long Chao must always strive to keep up with those around him. For the other, strength comes easy. Xiao Huifen isn’t competing against her peers, but the vague legends of Divine cultivators.
Started it early in the morning on a day off. Book has 730 pages and I read it through in a single setting. Not usually a big fan of cultivation books but the story had me in the first five pages. I will definitely be looking out for more from Apollos.
This is a great read. Unique and without many of the overplayed tropes common to the genre. I highly recommend it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end and highly recommend it and the authors other books.Please write faster. Can’t wait for the next book in the series.
This book could easily be a trilogy with how packed it is with arcs. If you’re looking for a cultivation book that will carry you through for a while this is it. I really want more codename freedom, so I was upset he started a new series… But I can’t even be mad.
Absolutely loved it. Couldn’t put it down. Was even reading it while at work. It was a little difficult to understand the laws vs qi at first (even having read tons of cultivation novels,) but that soon disappeared. I absolutely cannot wait for the second and hopefully many more after.
