Li Hu (Tian Can Tu Dou/Heavenly Silkworm Potato)
In the land of the Xia Kingdom, every human being is born with what is known as a 'resonance', either to a specific element or a powerful, mythical beast. Unfortunately, Li Luo was born with an incredibly rare condition known as a blank resonance - as the name suggests, he doesn't have one! Normally, this would be utterly crippling, but at least he has the advantage of being the young master of the mighty House Loulan, one of the five Great Houses of Xia. Unfortunately, his parents, the powerful masters of House Loulan, have gone missing for many years, and the other Great Houses are beginning to eye their holdings quite hungrily. For that matter, plenty are also eyeing his talented, beautiful childhood friend and fiancee Jiang Qing'e, who has been leading House Loulan in his parents' stead! Li Luo would much rather keep a low profile and wants call off the engagement - but Jiang Qing'e has flatly refused. What's a 'useless young master' to do? 
Is there any way he can get out of this engagement? Can he figure out a way to protect his House from the jackals circling around it? And... is a blank resonance really useless?

Review as of Chapter 30:

Latest Score:

Story 8/10

Characters 7/10

Trope Use 8/10

Translation/Editing 10/10

After getting a solid prologue, I can say, with high hopes, that this might be a pretty good novel. The MC's quirk is interesting with a large margin for unique cultivation.

As the story develops we see Li Luo is not quite as open as your typical MC, he keeps his face hidden behind a mask and is very aware of his own shortcomings. He isn't brash or arrogant and so far hasn't really developed too much. I do think this story is headed in the right direction.

I don't have enough chapters to compare it to the author's previous novel BTTH I say give it a shot. While BTTH had a mediocre ending and it's definitely not the best story out there. It was fun! It's kinda like junk food.

Honestly, I'm going to give this one a chance because authors evolve and I'm hoping that this novel shows that HSP has improved.


Shoutout to the translators, even if you don't like the novel they do a wonderful job of letting the story flow!

It's just your classic Generic Cultivation Novel, written by the same author as Battle Through the Heavens, Wu Dong Qian Kun, The Great Ruler, and Dragon Prince Yuan. You wouldn't know he has several novels under his belt though from reading Absolute Resonance.

The MC, Li Luo, has no resonance, which is basically like a martial soul, more or less. He has a spot for it, but it's blank. In a world of cultivation, that's a problem because he can't cultivate like the others in his school can. But actually he has not one but three blank resonances. So right from the beginning we can see that his problem is actually an asset, because we all know the resonance palaces will be filled. Also his parents are missing.

But no worries because his major problem is taken care of early on, the solution just handed to him. Nowhere in these first 90-something chapters has Li Luo suffered a single setback. I'm not exaggerating. He literally has only suffered one loss, and that was a sparring match. The villains are cartoonish and stupid, and everyone is constantly bewildered at how Li Luo keeps triumphing. There are three main girls who all have similar names. Every time they show up the author goes on and on about how beautiful they are. And the chapters are almost devoid of content. You gotta hand it to the author; he really knows how to meet his word quota without really saying anything, just chapter after chapter of "wow can you believe what Li Luo just did", punctuated by a few paragraphs of Li Luo doing something else amazing. There is no suspense whatsoever. And the cultivation is often glossed over and instead we get a bunch of chapters about a boring competition that Li Luo easily wins or helps someone else win. And suddenly he's leveled up again, but we don't get to see the process.

So yeah, pretty generic and bland. If you like Silkworm Potato's other novels, then you might like this one. But it's just the same thing over again.

I have enjoyed this author's previous works and from what I have read so far the story has potential. However, with Web Novels, I find that you need to read a least 50 to 100 chapters to get a good idea of the story.

The story has the usual tropes of a young master from a great family whose parents disappear and was considered a genius as a child but at a certain point something happens and he is considered trash. I expected him to resolve this shortly and start his journey to the top.

The translation is clear and the writing flows nicely which makes it enjoyable to read.
