Summary

Advancement has come quickly to Ling Qi. With help from strong allies and connections, her foe has been defeated.

The enemies of the alliance she has helped to build have surrendered. Her talent no longer goes unnoticed in the Celestial Empire, casting new eyes on her path. Those like her are accounted for; a title of nobility is within her reach...a prize with implications that will stretch over her now long life.

Looming over it all is the end of year tournament: the last barrier between her and the Inner Sect, with all its resources and lessons. How will she face another opportunity to rise even further from the hard-scrabble streets and alleys of Tonghou?

Inspired by ancient folklore, modern martial arts, and Xianxia, Forge of Destiny cultivates a world both fantastic in setting yet familiar in the humanity of its inhabitants. Don't miss this third installment of one of the most popular titles on Royal Roads - with more than seven million copies sold - elegantly performed by Earphones Award-winning voice artist Natalie Naudus.

The epic story continues

If you likes books amine and two you will like book three. The story continues and is every bit as good as in previous books.

Spectacular finish to the first arch

It may seem a bit odd to call three books and over fifty hours of content a "first arch," but if you know how these types of web novels are, you will know that this is pretty standard. Forge is by far one of the best written books of the style and genre. Plenty of action, humor, development, drama, and even a bit of romance. The story is well thought out and far more coherently put together than you would normally see in a book written like this. I believe a lot of this comes from it's origins. an online role playing game. Lot of people to check and recheck that everything is making sense. The only gripe i have, is that heir are so MANY great characters in the novel that i am often left wanting to know everything i can about them. this series could have a half dozen awesome companion novels following all of the other spectacular people we are introduced to through Ling Qi. Lol and after so much content already, being left wanting even more is hardly a critique at all.
The only real critique i have is that it seemed towards the end of the novel that Ling Qi forgot she had a ranged attack in Falling Stars, Would have only been good for one fight, but it was odd that she chose chasing a person around rather than using it. Beyond that nothing else, including sleep lol, took me out of the story.

I cannot wait to see what this author and this series has in store for the future.

Eh, could have been better

SPOILERS


I don't like the fact that Chin Li joined the Tsai , I hoped that she would go with the academy and build her own path.
she also got way too much outside help to win her fights so it took away from her progress in my opinion.

Enjoyed, and…

Loved the first 2 books, this one was hard to get into, not a lot of fighting but political stuff and I hope the MC progression gets out of school. Recommend but hopefully more of the vast world. Very well thought out book.

Many gem moments. Great book!

Such a vivid world. Top shelf stuff. Well written and narration is excellent. Unbelievable subtleness.

Gratitude.

Amazing

The progression fantasy/cultivation aspects of this book are phenomenal. I do wish that a particular relationship developed more (you know what I mean *cough*). This book is an amazing read. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Politics

MC is getting really into politics real hard in this one, among other choices I disliked, meaning you have many hours of her acting fake and subservient to people who are only above her because of the years they had on her in a ever shrinking gap.
