I’ve read quite a few wuxia stories, but Martial Peak is still one of my favorites. I’ve re-read it a few times, but haven’t gotten bored of the story or characters.
This is a wuxia story, and it definitely has plenty of the tropes associated with the genre, however the author does a great job making everything seem fresh, while still familiar. Unlike many other wuxia stories I’ve read Martial Peak hasn’t gotten repetitive. (At least not yet ;)) The story follows the life of the MC, and, while there hasn’t been any great overarching plots, it is a great example of why “may your life be interesting” is a curse. At one point even the MC is bemoaning the fact he hasn’t had enough calm.
The other thing that makes this story one of my favorites is the protagonist, Yang Kai. He has a philosophy of returning both Good-will and ill-will, but unlike many other MCs he implements it in a more realistic ways. If someone mocks him, he’ll mock back, or plot something that will embarrass them. It’s when someone is after his life that he’ll kill. He isn’t a saint, but he’s not a psycho killer either. Yang Kai is depicted as someone intelligent, driven, unyeilding, who can be completely ruthless when necessary, but still has a heart. He’s used to schemes, and could even be called jaded, which is why he is very kind to his true friends and loved ones. I’ve seen other reviewers complain about the fact that he refuses girls that are throwing themselves at him. I actually really like that. It stays true to his unyeilding character, and his loyalty to those he cares about.
