    Hello guys. Just copied a short list from novelspread. I've read some of them, and like the battling records. It's really intriguing. And the rest all include some revenge plots that i like most, hope you'd also enjoy it.

    1. Battling Records of the Chosen One


    In the vast and boundless continent Cangtu, there were ancient sects governing the Ten Old Domains, unworldly immortal clans beyond the Blue Density, and primordial demon gods dominating the dark abyss that together created an unknown number of brilliant chapters over the long course of the history.

    In this very world, there was a boy, named Lin Xun, who embarked on his journey to the pinnacle of strength alone through cultivation and spiritual tattoo inscribing.

    Escaped alone from the Mine Prison where he had been living since his adoption, Lin Xun knew nothing about his identity but the little information his adopter, Master Lu, had told him. With two ancient spiritual tools Master Lu gave to him before the destruction of the Mine Prison, Lin Xun started his journey to Ziyao Empire, where he is supposed to find out the truth of his lost Spiritual Vessel and the person who slaughtered his family, leaving him orphaned.

    Will he be able to unlock the mysteries of the two magic treasures, unveil the secrets of his identity and create a legend of his own?

    2. Wu Dong Qian Kun (Revenge/Rise in Ranks/OP)

    Great that this helps!!! There're many more fantasy novels as well as wuxia, xianxia, etc. on the site: novelspread...lol...it's preventing me from posting any link...so i guess you have to type the '3 ws' and the 'com' part.
    If this list didn't help you out, maybe you can find something really useful there.

    Amazing, thanks! I've just ordered The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu, loved memoirs of a Geisha and am looking to take some inspiration from 'Silkpunk', so I'll be sure to grab some books from this list soon.

    Way too much on the wishlist...

    The synopsis you gave for Spirit Realm is actually Emperor's Domination. This is the synopsis for SR.

    Also, I highly recommend I Shall Seal the Heavens. The translation's completed, too, which is awesome.
