Publisher's Summary

Not all fates are created equal....

Kenji's only dream in life is to become a great rebirther like his father. But with no talent for the mystic arts, the age-old tradition of cultivating essence by returning things to their newborn state, to grow a second and third time, is far beyond his grasp.

Worse still, he is yet to be rebirthed himself and stands a dullard of a giant among his diminutive peers. Relegated to working the orchards as a common laborer, Kenji settles into a life of lowered expectations; with no chance for advancement and no chance of pursuing the woman he loves.

But when a mystic warrior from a distant land enters his village, pursued by a powerful demon, Kenji discovers a truth about himself that will not only question who he is, but perhaps everything he can become.

With a chance to make his dreams come true, Kenji must choose between following the fate laid out before him...or defying the heavens to forge his own path.

Doing so will mean finding a way to cultivate and fighting powerful enemies to protect the ones he loves, but failure could mean the very fall of the heavens themselves.

Join Kenji as he uncovers the fate of the Sundered Soul....

Sundered Soul is Book One in the new Wuxia/Xianxia series by best-selling LitRPG author Rick Scott. If you're a fan of Asian cultivation stories like the Cradle Series, martial arts fantasy, and Japanese style Xianxia such as Princess Mononoke, Samurai Shodown, and Sekiro, then this is the book for you!

Note: Contains mild gamelit elements, no harem, and no harsh language.

not good

predictable story with the tried and old plot points that will have you yawning over and over. narrator whispers/grunts the last 1 -3 words in almost every sentence. thanks again to the wonderful return policy at audible

Very disappointed.

The story has proven typical of a Wixia/Xianxia Cultivation novel that was written by a western author. Virtually at no point did the main character ever face and opponent that wasn’t more powerful than himself. Only through trickery or divine intervention or just out right luck does the main character survive his encounters. This is a classic theme of most western novels. For some reason many of these authors believe that only by overcoming absolutely impossible odds by miracle or luck can a story be really good. But this is not theme most of the time in a eastern written Wixia/Xianxia Cultivation novel. In these novels written by eastern authors the main character is usually picked on and then he developed some form of special cultivation and then turns around and beats up most of his opponents and slowly gain strength and power to be able to advance himself and help others. This whole point is lost in many of these novels written by western authors. In fact one of the few cultivation novels I’ve seen written by a western author that really captures the true heart of this story line is Cultivating Chaos by William D Arand. To sum this all up this is just basically a standard fantasy novel written by a western author with very little creativeness in it except to add the theme of cultivation. I’ve seen this basic storyline a million times in western fantasy substituting it in to cultivation is just putting window dressing on it.

Weird Narration

The story seems like it might be intriguing but the weird breathy way the narrator ends every sentence is a excruciating after the first few times. How did this make it through any initial reviewers? I couldn’t last more than a few minutes, this needs a re-read, even if it’s the same guy just break the annoying habit and read it like a normal human.

Great story and narrator.

I hope that there will be a second book that is longer and comes out before 2021. I really loved how the characters evolved and adapted to situations and interactions with one another. I just hope that he doesn't become some Goku like monster that has no limits. Have to say it is really OP that the guy has the ability to do advanced math in his head during battle on the fly and script it onto a rope that normally took him and his father time to do earlier. With the ability to control time like that and all the other factors I'd say he's going to need to be nerfed.

Good story, bad narration

Do yourself a favor, read the book and skip the audio version.

The story was well written and entertaining. It is one of the better cultivation books I’ve read recently. The voices are easy to distinguish the characters from one another. I’m looking forward to the next one.

The Bad.
The characters repeat the phrase “By the Heavens” so many times it loses all meaning. The main character often repeats the last thing the character said before him. By the end of the book my eyes would involuntarily roll.

The really bad
The voice acting is just bad. The narrator uses an odd inflection in nearly every sentence. I MEAN EVERY SENTENCE. Often times the inflection doesn’t even match the words. It robs the story of any emotion that the writer is trying to convey. It’s so bad I will not be buying anything else narrated by this guy.

The Start of an Intriguing Cultivation Journey

With a steady pace this book serves to introduce an interesting universe to the main characters and set the stage for an adventure very akin to the cradle series in tone and delivery with a bit more of an eastern influence. The narrator does a fantastic job also and is well worth the listen
