Fish’s Sky (鱼的天空)
Many islands dotted the vast oceans of this world. However, some of these islands were a lot more sinister than the rest. These islands, known as Nightmare Islands, were true nightmares to all but the strongest and most fortunate. Children were kidnapped and thrown on these isolated islands by the Nightmare Palace. There, they were forced to sign soul pacts with evil soul pets: Nightmares. These devils slowly devoured the souls of their trainers to grow stronger. If the children did not cultivate fast enough, then their souls would be devoured whole, leaving only an empty husk behind.
Chu Mu, the protagonist, was an heir to the Chu Clan, but due to a plotted murder, he was thrown to the island, sentencing him to almost certain death. Dancing on the edge of life and death, he struggled to survive with a small Moonlight Fox he captured. When he finally escaped the devilish foremen on his island, he couldn’t help but let a breath out. But little did he know, the experience was only a beginning to a fated journey with his little Moonlight Fox…

This is a really good novel, I love the concept of soul pets and the cultivation system that is dependent on making your soul pets stronger is a rather nice change of pace from solo meditations. The main character experiences some really good character growth that happens gradually through the novel rather than just suddenly changing when it's convenient. All the soul pets the main character obtains have individual personalities and are memorable in their own way. In some aspects it wouldn't be wrong to say that this novel is pokemon but with actual violence and death and a better story.

Murdermon. Pokémon meets "The Hunger Games" meets "Game of Thrones". Not interested yet?

The plot starts in what's basically an island version of Auschwitz.

Also, there's an actual plot, not just "I have to get stronger", there's intrigues, war, treachery, all the stuff that makes you want to read the next chapter asap.

There's emotional highs and lows, I shed a tear on more than one occasion, yelled at the screen in several others, got goosebumps more than one and my neighbor did definitely hear "F*ck yeah!" a few times because of this novel.

The MC is a certified badass and still manages to be a compelling, richly-faceted character. You know, character development is a thing, although some authors have never heard of it. This one has.

His soul pets (basically Pokémon) are a diverse cast of interesting characters, just like the actual human side characters. (Rarely can a one-dimensional character be found like they plague many novels.)

His first soul pet is a soul-eating being literally called Nightmare.

Also, Vulpix going nuclear, evolving into a god of death.

GOD ZHAN YE. The side character that's the perfect anime/xianxia MC and still doesn't steal any of the limelight from the actual MC.

And many more.

Interested now?

One BIG caveat though: The first 100 or so chapters are in dire need of editing. There's a lot of minor errors and inconsistencies. Well, it was moonfox's first translating job and he didn't have an editor (he still doesn't iirc), so the results are as expected. He learned quickly, however, and his mistakes get few and far inbetween after some time. So if you're a grammar nazi, you might be annoyed by this - but in my opinion, it's still a great read and one of the best novels in Wuxiaworld!

This has to be the most underrated novel on this site. I can't believe how low the following is it's mind boggling.

This novels very movie-esque and by that I mean it's really an adventure book for the ages that could definitely be turned into a movie and sell out. It's got most if not all of what you want: romance, adventure, fighting, mystery, heck even horror. The character really is a victim turned bad ass type of main. He starts out being good nature'd and lovable and then slowly becomes the man we know and love. Picture Pokemon but darker, with romance, and thrills. Anyways don't take my for it, you'll see.
