Sundering Nature ENG volare

Synopsis

To be is to have a soul. The soul begets a will. Wills accumulate into mysterious psychic forces, weaving secret domains within the fabric of reality.

Li Yiming, a gentle and kind-hearted person, was embroiled in this secret facade of reality against his will. Was it a coincidence, or was it preordained by fate? Dao techniques, artifacts, fantastic beasts, supernatural abilities… Within these secret domains governed by Heavenly Laws, his true identity incites great suspicion from all. A plan concocted for millennia — will he be the one to derail Heaven’s laws, or the one to sunder Nature’s fetters?

Translator’s Synopsis

On the lowest day of his life, Li Yiming receives a key that opens the door to another world. He joins the ranks of Guardians, blessed children of Heaven’s Laws whose task is to eradicate Secret Domains, bubbles within reality encapsulating fantasies from your wildest dreams. Mythical beasts, Dao techniques, superpowers… The possibilities are boundless.

However, Li Yiming differs from his colleagues. His very existence among them is a mistake. Is it a simple coincidence, or is he but a pawn in a much greater scheme?

A novel about the growth of an ordinary protagonist, an introspection about what it means to do the right thing, and a window offering a glimpse into the vastness of Chinese culture.
