A hundred thousand years ago, there was a great war between cultivators. Immortals fell by the tens of thousands, the path of cultivation itself was severed, and after the dust settled, tombs forested the world.

A hundred thousand years after the last legend faded, Lu Yun, commandant of tomb raiders, descends upon the world. Armed with the Tome of Life and Death, he has some burning questions to answer.


“This isn’t how you raid a tomb!” Lu Yun smirked at the cultivators frantically scurrying about the ancient tomb. “Do you want me to teach you?”


But ah, can someone teach him how to cure his new body’s erectile dysfunction?

Necromancy, no filler, and unexplained mysteries of the world arrive with Necropolis Immortal!

Starting off with a typical xianxia trope of an incredible treasure, this cultivation novel quickly veers away from the usual cliches and into the realm of the spookily unexplored. Lu Yun, commandant of the tomb raiders, arrives in a fantastical world of immortals. It’s a realm filled with shiny new toys—ahem, tombs to be explored. What seems like a treasure-hunting jaunt is soon tinged with intrigue. What else does he have to solve other than how to stay alive in half a year’s time? Oh, and his new body is afflicted with erectile dysfunction.

This novel is great for those who like mystery paired with adventure, epic one-liners, and fanciful plot twists all served with a little dash of horror. PS. etvo has a cameo!

Feng shui: Chinese geomancy, or the philosophy of looking at our living spaces and working environment to strike a balance with the natural world.

How this translates to day-to-day living: It's basically a list of do's and don't's for setting up your home and workspace, or what I'd call fancy common sense. These are set of rules that help the user get into a good mental space and still very much a part of Chinese culture in modern times. Similar equivalences in American culture are the avoidance of black cats and the number 13, or the wedding tradition of "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue'.
