Misty Rain of Jiangnan (煙雨江南)
Every drop of this family bloodline is stained with sin. They are the embodiment of contradiction; calm yet maniacal, with great memories yet often forgetful. They pledge themselves to their dreams yet often compromise, are angels that are also devils… It’s why I hate them.
And also love them.
The only hope of his family, a youth with the blood of elves and demons walks on a battleground of annihilation and rebirth. He wills his way through boiling lava and icy depths, making a killing on this field of despair to strike down the lofty figure in his sight. One day he’ll grasp his blade tightly and survey his surroundings, only to find no more enemies to kill.

Oh my God. I got the chills so many times toward the end of this book. It completely blew my mind. It managed to surpass my high expectations AND be nothing at all like I expected.

Let me preface this with an apology. If I sound a little undescriptive , I can't help it. My mind is completely fried by this book.

The world-building is so fully fleshed out and spine-tinglingly terrifying that it's almost as if the author travelled to such a world, escaped from it, and then just wrote it all down.

Simply amazing. The only downside was that I felt that the ending was a little too rushed. You can also check out the other works of this author, which are Monarch of Evernight and Demon hunter.

City of sin, unlike most other Chinese novels on WW, has a western and dnd like theme which was what initially attracted me to this novel, well that and the fact that Richard, the main character, was a mage ( i love mages).

But what trully made me fall in love with the story was Planar warfare. There are multitudes of planes scattered through the CoS' world and they are classified by power level of their denizens. Those from more powerful planes, such as Norland (Richard's home), invade the lower planes and plunder their resources, why? In order to build up their strength and defend themselves against the invaders. As for seemingly strong worlds that keep to themselves? well it's only a matter of time before invaders find them. Richard, being from a Primary plane, is one of the invaders for most part which is a rather novel concept as opposed to most stories where main character's world is the one being invaded.

Main character, Richard, starts off as a naive and kind kid with a bit of madness that flared up only when he was pushed too far but gradually grows to become a ruthless ruler who only cares about those around him and his subordinates. He is not afraid of being perceived as evil and he is not a hypocrite either.

Side characters are rather interesting and consistent through the story for most part but eventhough a lot is invested into developing their charcters initially, they gradually are pushed to the side and are not mentioned that often around halfway through the story.

As far as the pace of the story goes, it is rather well paced except for the last book where the author tries to wrap up all the lose ends which makes it feel rushed for most part.

Overall this book is a must read, specially if you like cold and calculating main characters who are not afraid to commit evil.

This novel is about a kid named Richard trying to figure out his place in life, getting sucked in a massive conflict between powerful factions and legendary beings, thus being forced to forge himself a path to survival, for both his friends and his family.

The novel is, in my opinion, the best one on this website by miles. The names are Western so there's no confusion when it comes to remembering characters. The world is massive and full of interesting locations and factions (you will really get a fell of it as you read). The characters are all very well developed, a lot of them to the point that they could have their own novel. Also the novel is much more realistic when it comes to how challenges and problems are approached.

As you will progress through the story you will feel the massive scope of the world and its intricacies, the interactions between characters are meaningful and few of them are stepping stones, most of them having a big influence on Richard, be they enemies, friends or family. The story is good and and the author writes with meaning and doesn't treat readers like idiots expecting them to accept anything he writes. It will get a bit rushed in the last few chapters but things will fall into place nicely so there's no need to worry.

In conclusion, its a great novel and you should read it.
