The First Step A Thousand Li #1 Download Ô 109 Novel in A Thousand Li series a book on cultivation immortals wondrous martial art styles and spirit beasts and will be loved by wuxia and xanxia fans The First Step is written by Tao Wong the bestselling scifi and fantasy LitRPG author of the System Apocalypse Adventures on Brad and the Hidden Wishe. Okay so first for those who don t know me I am as I believe the author of this work to be an Asian American despite my European American name My Asian ancestors came from a different part of Asia than Mr Wong s but just as he describes in his post scriptum I grew up watching Samurai movies and Hong Kong wire fu adventure tales in my case doubly because I enjoyed the action and because I was desperate to see faces like my own to figure out who I was supposed to be how I was supposed to act I have in the past read some really poor attempts at xanxia You may imagine my grateful surprise that this This is not one of those This is no story of the god touched the martial genius the one facing down all enemies with a sneer and winning almost without effort No this is the story of the Farm Boy Hero the one who perseveres and trains and reflects This is a young man of morals who follows the principles of Confucius Buddha and Lao tzu which are built into the society in which he was raised rather than letting his elevation and success turn him arrogantIn short I found this an excellent book for those who watched movies like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Hero or even House of Flying Daggers and wanted to enter completely into that world
