Publisher's Summary

A laugh-out-loud, slice-of-life martial-arts fantasy about...farming????

Jin Rou wanted to be a cultivator. A man powerful enough to defy the heavens. A master of martial arts. A lord of spiritual power. Unfortunately for him, he died, and now I’m stuck in his body.

Arrogant Masters? Heavenly Tribulations? All that violence and bloodshed? Yeah, no thanks. I’m getting out of here.

Farm life sounds pretty great. Tilling a field by hand is fun when you’ve got the strength of ten men—though maybe I shouldn’t have fed those Spirit Herbs to my pet rooster. I’m not used to seeing a chicken move with such grace...but Qi makes everything kind of wonky, so it’s probably fine.

Instead of a lifetime of battle, my biggest concerns are building a house, the size of my harvest, and the way the girl from the nearby village glares at me when I tease her.

A slow, simple, fulfilling life in a place where nothing exciting or out of the ordinary ever happens...right?

The first volume of the blockbuster progression-fantasy series—with more than 16 million views on Royal Road—now available on Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and Audible!

Hidden gem

Can’t wait till the next one. Loved the whole f-you chunboi style that still uses the tropes for the side characters to great comedic effect.

Why was this so good?!

For a book with such a ridiculous name I enjoyed this immensely. It is a funny, entertaining and engaging story with loveable characters and what feels like is going to be a great adventure in future books. The narration is fantastic, I wouldn’t expect anything less from Travis Baldree who is a fantastic narrator. Worth a surprising 5 stars. Loved it!

A very good book.

My favourite. A steady progression of the story that has interesting characters and story. I look forward to the rest of the series.

Fantastic light read

This book was a true surprise, at first I was a little apprehensive about spending the time, but honestly I adored this book. What more can I say.?
It’s simple and yet profound. It sang to the happier side of my heart and filled me with joy.
How is another person capable of speaking to me in such a way?
10 out of 10 plus 2 more, just for writing a book on how to live happily.
Well done!

Great story

Loved the story. Just a few issues with different accents pronouncing words differently and having to double check with the kindle edition is the only issue. Buying book 2 now

Masterpiece

Slight parody, familiarity with xianxia tropes recommended to get the most out of the humour, but not necessary

2023 Gem!

This series is a reading highlight for 2023!

Absolutely not something I thought I would ever be attracted to!

I was utterly surprised and delighted.

The series is wholesome, hilarious, innovative, whimsical...
