Chapter 152: Words Under the Moon With An Old Companion
Translated by Deathblade
Contributing Editors: Madam Deathblade, John Rogers
Proofreaders: Lingson, MeeBoo and Yascob

I want to recommend one of my favorite novel series of all time, after the jump.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend reading the Barsoom Series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. By the way, the first several books are available to read free online! The first book in the series was written over 100 years ago!! That’s right, this is pulp sci-fi/fantasy at its best. There was a recent movie adaptation by Disney that was horrible. If you saw “John Carter of Mars” please, please don’t judge these books based on that train wreck of a movie!

This series has adventure, romance, swords, villains…. it’s just fun fiction that has stood the test of time. The first book is about a guy named John Carter who somehow gets transported to Mars, where he gains incredible strength and then gets embroiled with the wars and schemes of the various nations, clans, species, etc. that inhabit the red planet (which the locals call Barsoom).

Here are the free books that you can either read online or download:

A Princess of Mars
The Gods of Mars
Warlord of Mars
Thuvia, Maid of Mars
The Chessmen of Mars

Below is some classic Barsoom art to give you an idea what it’s like…

  1. Both A & B sound bad out of context… real bad… especially since we know what almost happened to her…

    That said… I’d feel that it would have been better if he had her complete all 13 levels with some outside spirit energy so that she’s start off at a better base than most people (and after she gets flawless foundation, she’d be one of the strongest amongst her group….

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    1. 13 levels? Your talking about the Qi Condensation stages? I doubt there’s any pills that can even allow someone to go an extra Qi Condensation level after 9, at least not in the present stage of the story. 13 levels are only for rare individuals, like 99.9% modern cultivators maxes out at 9

  2. There is a lot of… voluptuous-ness in those pictures.
    I’m interested!

    Thanks for the chapter!
    My guess is C.

    EDIT: small typo early on, Xu Qing says “Was is after the Sect disbanded?”
    should be “it”
