from NovelUpdates.com


What does it mean to seek immortality? Those who have ascended were human once, but do they ever stop yearning for the world they once roamed?

In the age of immortals and would be immortals, ten year old Cheng Qian leaves his family to apprentice under the Sect Leader of the obscure Fuyao Mountain Sect. What follows next is a hundred year long tale of blood and sweat, tears and heartbreak, but also love and laughter, joy and triumph, and most importantly, a journey of finding that sometimes, a home isn’t always a place, but the beloved family that you make for yourself along the way.
