We have some of the best women in xianxia. Since I had the ill fate of reading Coiling Dragon as my first xianxia I became deeply annoyed by how easily can a love story become the weak point of a xianxia. The harem is always the redeeming factor. Yet, going after each woman without considering her talents and only caring about her looks doesn't work that well. Read MGA if you want to deny my point of view. I especially enjoy the introduction of 'sword maids'. I couldn't stop myself from laughing seeing how interesting it is to give something unique not to obtain beauty but maids. Many novels either present completely innocent protagonists that are as dense as dark matter, or pimps that give priceless manuals, weapons or medicines just to enjoy some fuk.
The world building is the most serious part of this novel. Everything moves according to lines drawn before Li Qiye managed to recover his mortal body. While this may seem annoying as the author can always give the protagonist the plot armor known as 'the plan', at some point you understand that there is a different line of thinking used by the author. But, well, some people may understand it faster than others so I can only recommend everyone to read it and try to find it.
Lastly, the side characters, which include the beginning weak and not extremely important characters that have some good will towards the protagonist and the high amount of enemies. Here we see something extremely good and something good. First, extremely good. The protagonist is not a saint. Even though he appreciates loyalty, he only grooms those that deserves it. So at some point he starts discarding those that are not that important. This comes as a surprise, as some of these people are good friends. Next, the enemies are mostly the same pricks we are generally annoyed by. Yet, seeing how they are killed in masses somehow gives a refreshing feeling.
In conclusion, this novel is full of jewels, and it's truly different from the general xianxia. Some will understand why, while others will just see it as another garbage can full of cliches. Both views are right. This is just a novel that appeals to you only if you search for a specific something. For me, the calm yet ruthless protagonist is 'my cup of tea'. For others this would just be a plain psychopath. So, read it, if you like it, then congratulations, if not, good luck with the next one.
Emperor Domination is about a person name Li Qiye who is also known as the "Dark Crow". He has once taught or teach immortal emperors and a few other people who were considered invincible or huge powerhouses in there current era. He eventually regains his mortal body after millions of years and strives to become the strongest immortal emperor (or something that surpasses that >_>) and strikes back the people or land that cursed him and held him captive. This novel is recommended to anyone who wants an arrogant, smart, and cunning MC
The plot is the typical xianxia, cultivate, massacre, cultivate cycle. With the massacre part starting with idiotic enemies being arrogant and then MC being arrogant even more, then the inevitable fight and MC's win.
The plot does progress with unique elements and environments sprinkled on top of that unending cycle which makes it better than most.
How MC does cultivation though gets little exposition, thankfully. But cultivation techniques, characters and situations get extreme repetitive foreshadowing which makes each chapter not very fulfilling overall. Like for example, if spoken lines are..
