The Divine Elements

Author: Daman


Release Schedule

Synopsis: Anger. Pain. Desolation.

An orphan boy tries to forge his own destiny in order to seek the strength to avenge the deaths of his family, as he shatters the chains of servitude bond to him.

On his eighth birthday, Calron awakened to the weakest known power in the world: the element of lightning. However, unlike the normal golden lightning of other cultivators, Calron’s lightning was an azure-blue color.

Hiding his powers from the world, Calron embarks on a journey of ascending to Godhood and takes his first step into a world of friendship, revenge, and bloodshed.

63 thoughts on “The Divine Elements” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. This may be self explanatory but could someone describe a bit more in-depth about the “Kingdom Building” tag? I assume it means the mc helps/contributes/starts/founds/takes over/ a sect/clan/kingdom. If that is indeed correct what can I expect differently trope wise compared to other novels?

    1. The kingdom building comes around the end of the third book. Don’t wanna give any spoilers, but it will be on the scale of kingdom(s) and instead of the usual fist-to-fist fights, the mc will be using political machinations along with his brute strength to create his empire. Any more than that would come into serious spoiler category 😛

      1. Haha really fast reply! This should prove to be interesting :D. I shall see you when I catch up to the latest releases…..If I am being honest here give me like 4 days lol. xD The binge starts now, thanks again for the reply!

          1. Oh wow, I love it when the MC establishes their own kingdom 😀 Is the progress of the kingdom still focused later-on? Started reading and I’m loving it ^^

  2. Since you have this out in E-Book and Paperback, any chance of it coming out in Audiobook? I can pretty much guarantee that I’d buy it in the format. Im a serious audiobook junky and the description sounds fun.

    If you havent even considered audiobooks, Id suggest talking to about what’s involved and then crunch some numbers and see if it’s worth investing in.

    1. Actually I was going to contact both Tina and you, Daman, about this very subject. I happen to work with (not for but with mind you) Audible. I do reviews for them, however my contact with Audible is on Maternity leave at the moment.

      TDE and Blue Phoenix are definitely audiobook worthy and I’d be willing to throw in my own meager support. I haven’t read Overthrowing Fate yet so I can’t judge it, but if it’s even half as good as BP it’s definitely got potential.

      Let me know if you, Daman, are interested. I’ll get in contact with you and see about reaching out to Audible, though I have no idea when my contact will return as I had experienced a computer failure and wasn’t reviewing audiobooks for a couple month.

      1. Hmm, I did consider it but wasn’t sure it was worth the investment. Similar to print copies, I wondered if there was a real demand in the market for audiobooks. You can contact me at [email protected] if you have any stats or data I can see to reconsider this idea 🙂

      1. If they dream of doing a text-speech program I’ll buy a mike and record in my free time and donate it for free. Please, I beg you, no direct to speech! I’ll donate all my time for free!

  3. How fast is his cultivation? Just wondering how long it will take him to become considered as an expert. Not a fan of very fast cultivation but I hate when it takes like 1000 chapters for him to become strong (not the strongest).

    And does he age? Does he only age by like 1 year in like 200 chapters?

    1. lmao, he cultivates pretty fast. He’s already an adept martial artist around book 3 and his current age in the latest book is around 18-20 🙂

    1. I’ll have to make one T^T
      I still need to finish formatting the chapters, so it’ll take a while to get that out. Instead, I’ll make a small list here to show the cultivation system.

      1-9 (with one being the lowest and 9 the highest)


      Spiritual < Vajra < Saint < Heavenly < yet to be revealed

      I'll make more detailed one once I have more time on my hands. ^^

  4. I don’t know when Im going to have time to read this or where Im going to read it but I just bought it off as my way of saying ‘welcome to WW’. Now, just go make it into an audio book and I’ll love you long time. 🙂

  5. Btw choosing lightning as the looked down upon element wuut, that’s like the author who choose the sword to be the worst weapon in his novel, It just feels strange when the most popular X is reversed.x=(attribute,pwr, weapon etc…), Oh and welcome to WXW ,since I forgot where I left off, I’m gonna have to start from scratch T-T

    1. There is a reason why lightning is considered to be the weakest, but we don’t know if that was always the case… which leaves the question: what made it change? haha 😛

      1. Oh so that’s what your going with, I thought you just made it so that lightning is weakest from the start and that’s it, this makes it more interesting, I think adding this to the synopsis would make it more appealing.

        1. From the very beginning, if i remember right, its explained its the weakest cause its the hardest to evolve. As in, you need to actually find a thunderstorm of rather large proportions and stand in it, while getting hit. And its only while getting hit you can absorb the lightning essence that will allow you to progress further.

          But feel free to correct me, i have mixed stories together before. xD

  6. Hello daman, ive finished all the finished books here and currently waitng for updates on 6 books. in a 10 word sentence, try to convince me why i should read your book and ill be your loyal supporter till the end. I promise!

    1. haha, I don’t know how to convince you. I can say a few words, but stories are meant to be experienced in their entirety without bias. I’ll tell you this, read the first three books of TDE and then decide if you want to continue any further. It’s very different from the usual xianxia you might’ve read and it will become more apparent the further you go in the book. Come back after that and you can tell me yourself if the story was worth it 🙂

      P.S – thats a lot more than 10 words 😛

      1. I like how you go beyond the box, and tell me honestly that its my choice. I didnt wait for your reply though, as i didnt turn on my notifications. But i binge read 100 chapters. Its got me hooked and you got my support! 🙂 keep up the good work.

  7. Currently on chapter 76

    Daman could you please verify this for me.

    Is the azure lightning and the beast bloodline not the same or are they????

    Since it says he always had his bloodline just it was dormant but the azure lightning awaken it. So if there not related then what’s the azure lightning???

    Kinda confused?!?:(

    1. This is a complicated one, as both the Azure Lightning and the Beast Bloodline are connected but different at the same time. This will be explained around book 3, so you’ll find out soon as you continue reading 🙂

  8. I just read the synopsis. Haven’t read it yet. So lightning is regarded as the weakest power in the world? Usually lightning power is rare and very powerful, so this caught me by surprise. Looks interesting though, would read it in the future.

  9. i dont mean to be one of the people that hassle for releases but i really really like your story and have been constantly checking the story since friday and cant help but notice that there hasnt been a release like there should have been, hope everything is ok with you and please release soon 🙂
