Summary

With a father as strong as the highest heavens themselves, Gravis wasn't required to step into the cold and ruthless world of cultivation.

But when Heaven used him in a scheme to get back at his father, Gravis realized that he needed strength to gain true freedom.

As long as he remained his weak self, he would always remain beneath Heaven’s oppression. Only true power brings true freedom.

To gain strength, Gravis ventured into the lower worlds to start his cultivation under true life and death tempering.

Only a strong will, which had been forged in striving for every resource available, would allow him to reach the peak.

Heaven’s strongest weapon was Lightning of Divine Punishment, and only if he made this weapon his, would he have a chance.

So, to overthrow Heaven,

Lightning Is the Only Way!

Yet, the path to power is painful.

Not everyone reaches the peak.

But Gravis will!

No matter how much pain he feels along the way!

    Am I the only one noticing that the narration is so casual? Like the author doesn’t care? IDK just compare the paragraph structure to something like Shadow Slave or LoTM. It’s just like someone dreaming and writing it down without a proper structure and a way to get readers attention. It’s like “it is what it is this is the story.” It reads like if you ask someone “Hey can you summarize this book for me.” And the reply is how the authors writes like. Idk i hope it gets better in the later chapters. Even Sword God is way better.

      "Idk i hope it gets better in the later chapters. Even Sword God is way better." I dunno, what if, maybe, this was the author's first novel, and when writing Sword God he already had a whole novel experience?

    Hi! I've first read Kill the Sun and Sword God, and I really liked the character development and the darker side of these novels, and so I wanted to know if this novel is similar to the other two, and if so, in what ways?

    It's time to start this. I've postpone it so much that I have no other excuse rn (because I've got no other novels to read tbh)! Fellow readers, if you're like me who cannot decide which novels to read (for f*ck sake!!!), or just bored out of your own d*mn mind... the motto is, "Just read, yap later!". Click a novel, then just straight up tap that Read button. Easy.

    Anyone knows other novels with the same (or better) quality than the Warmaisach novels? Kinda feel lost now that i've read Lightning is the Only Way and Sword God in a World of Magic (waiting for more chapters of Kill the Sun to start reading it)

      In the ending of SGWM, you can see: . The Gravitas Mental Health Clinic. . Gravis appearing as the Silver Shadow. . Gravis' dad/The Opposer/Mr. Bauer, giving people the happiness treatment at the Gravitas. . And you see all of the Abominations in SGWM? Well, they're all Gravis, ALL of them. . I'm near the end of LITOW but I'm not at the part where it explains this yet. . All in all, SGWM is depressing, and again, idk how Gravis didn't notice that horrible world. Well at least he saved it, quite late but he did.

        Oh but the comment boys said they're different and not some sin demon🧐 So how powerful is shang compare to gravis?

        gravis is infinitely more powerful and more talented than shang

        Remember that Aterium, the world of SGWM, only has Elemental Laws right? . But even these are incomplete Laws, Concepts are weaker than Laws. . SGWM is also missing all Laws other than the Elemental ones. . Also, having a Will Aura isn't possible in SGWM. . Overall, anyone born in Aterium is far weaker and automatically put in an unrecoverable disadvantage. (According to where I currently am in LITOW, however I'm sure the Archivist somehow recovered from this) . Shang escaping the world might have allowed him to manifest his Will Aura but at most, it would be only 1 realm above him. . Gravis can fight REALMS above himself. . You can put Gravis in the same realm Shang is currently in (10th, Star God) for it to be fair... And you can clearly see the winner.

        One grew up with close to no guidance in a sh*t cosmos, still managed to achieve power to jump a whole *ss realm at the end, gravis had the best backing in one of the strongest cosmoses ever, so obviously hes gonna be stronger. Although if his world had will aura, Shang would be cracked as f*ck

        should i read LITOW? Cause this novel seems to have more power system than SGWM or... Do you have some novels you can recommend me anything is fine😁 LOTM, SS, RI, i read rhem but did not finished it

        I think you should catch up to the novels you mentioned, then you can read Warmaisach's novels in order, LITOW > SGWM> KTS. but of course, it's your choice. Novels I recommend other than those are, The Beginning After the End, and Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint.

        Thanks a lot, people are saying that this novel is super cringe and overrated. Can you please give your review about it? I have read SGIWM.

        LITOW definitely deserves it's rank, it's better than SGWM. . The cringe part might be the romance near the end of the novel but that's it. It's not even cringe actually, some ppl just can't stand Romance. . The MC is a bit of a hypocrite on a certain arc, but that also changes once some serious issues are resolved. . Other than that, you should totally read LITOW. . Btw, between the author's 3 novels, you could say that Gravis is the only true Main Character, it's literally like Klein in LOTM, they're from a different novel, still in the same world, but there's only 1 actual MC.
