Publisher's Summary

While crossing the desert with the caravan, Hadjar got involved in the search for the library of Mage City, where the elixir that could turn a person into a god was stored.

After fighting against the desert bandits, he and his friend Einen suddenly entered Underworld City thanks to Serra's amulets. How many stories and legends he'd heard from South Wind and Serra about it!

How many times had he dreamed of coming there and talking to the Sage? How will this mysterious city welcome Hadjar? Will the underworld's residents become his allies or his enemies? Will he finally find out what the "true path" of cultivation is? Will he be able to find the elixir he needs to become a god and make the Jasper Emperor answer for his mistakes?

Enjoyable

Another solid book, nothing crazy but satisfying. I listen to books while I work and this was perfect to keep the mind engaged while deep in spreadsheets

MORE BOOKS PLEASE

Book 5 was no less engrossing as the previous 4. Great story and story teller. A change in story style then the typical cultivation books. Highly recommended.

Lapse in Continuity

Overall, as an isolated book this just as good as the others in the series (overall about 4 stars). However, the continuity with previous books goes out the window for this one. Hadjar's knowledge and the baseline power of all the characters fluctuates so wildly that I too often found myself saying, "that makes no sense."

Some examples [SPOILERS]:
- In the very first book Hadjar asks his mentor if the sage in charge of undercity is at the lord level, and his mentor tells him that he is beyond that level. In this book he is at the lord level and Hadjar somehow has never heard of that level.
- Hadjar creates a new technique capable of stopping an attack from the dragon's shadow --which is supposed to be beyond the power of an immortal-- but that same technique cannot hold back an attack from a spirit knight.

There are several more, but that should be enough to explain why I docked a star from this book in the series.

Good story ruined by cliche miscommunication

I enjoyed the series so far. But the cliche drama caused by characters refusing to talk and explain themselves ruined it somewhat for me.

One of my favorite wuxia

First of all I have to say I'm usually not a fan of Russian litrpg / wuxia novels. The culture is usually just too different and it is harder to relate with the characters and the story. Luckily for me, it hasn't stopped me from trying Dragon Heart series and I'm so glad I did. I really like the MC, progression, the story and the world-building .. so pretty much everything. MC is definitely one of the most likable ones from the myriad of books that I have read. Unlike most wuxia leads, MC is not a self-centered a-hole and he actually seems to be a genuinely nice guy, yet not wimpy at all and he can make tough choices if needed. Power progression has been kept in check and it feels consistent across all books so far which is definitely a big plus. Can't wait for the next one.

Continues to shine!!

Has become one of my favorite series!!!
I hate it when the book ends, kind of like waking up from an excellent dream. You just want to shut your eyes and start back where you left off. Rats! Now I have to wait for the next edition. Keep them coming!

A truly captivating series of books.

Great story and a great narrator. Have listened to many fantasy/litrpg/wuxia books and this series is the best one so far. I'm addicted, love it!
