Spirit Hunters of Maoshan Sect SHMS
The world is full of mysteries. Strange, seemingly unexplainable events occur more often than we may realize. A young boy may catch an illness no doctor can explain. An office may catch fire for no apparent reason. And perhaps, someone may die a sudden and unexpected death - their bodies blighted beyond recognition. Some might believe that these events are merely freak accidents. However, Ye Shaoyang knows otherwise. The youngest inner disciple ever in the prestigious Daoist Maoshan Sect. Talented, handsome, and a hillbilly from the mountains who still uses a brick phone in the modern age. Follow the tale of our quirky, snippy, but honorable hero, after he finally descends the mountains after fifteen years of being out of touch with normal society. Read on as he combats horrifying apparitions, charms ladies, and finds himself in all sorts of trouble along the way! A story that delves into Daoism, Chinese sorcery, and the supernatural from Asian mythology.
What Others Say
This excellent novel is unique and different from the usual Cultivation/Xianxia Fantasy novels. It is set entirely in the present day and the main character (MC) is a college student who happens to be a powerful sorcerer and an inner disciple of the Maoshan Sect. I see this as the Chinese version of the American fantasy horror television series. The story is sub-divided into various mysteries or cases involving spirits, ghosts, undead, demons, supernatural beings, afterlife, etc. which the MC investigate and resolve with support from his sidekicks. According to the website, the Chinese novel has 2500+ Chapters (ongoing), so we can expect many more interesting mysteries ahead. Borrowing words from another reviewer (BookAddict) - "a must read if you are a fan of the paranormal and mystery."
I loved this novel, it was the first time I read a supernatural novel. The MC was saved by an old man from a spirit-hunting sect, where he lived throughout his childhood and part of his youth, when he left that sect he is like an old person who knows almost nothing about technology or in general about the modern things to which we are accustomed. The story is slow, the plot is very realistic and well defined and I keep reading all the supernatural cases, it's like a detective who goes to a point and something suspicious happens and meets ghosts, no dead, spirits, demons... I remember a TV series called Supernatural that I watched as a child with this novel reminds me of the thrill of seeing how they solved cases. I wish they'd make him a TV series.
