Summary of Mo Dao Zu Shi

Xian - The state of immortality that all cultivators aspire to. Underneath, however, lies a dark energy: the forbidden Mo Dao or demon path. Through an unfortunate series of tragedies, this is the path that cultivator Wei Wuxian encounters while teaching. His rise to power comes with chaos and destruction, but his reign of terror comes to an abrupt end when he was overwhelmed by cultivating clans and he was killed by his closest ally.

Thirteen years later, Wei Wuxian incarnates in the body of a madman and reunites with Lan Wangji, a former classmate of his. This marks the beginning of a supernatural mystery that alone drives the clans and threatens to disrupt their daily lives.
