    do you know if there is any prologue to this novel?
    reason for asking is because i am still confused on how he traveled to that world, did he die or just get transported? or did monk come to earth?

    • shiroyukineko says:

      [spoiler]Nope there’s no prologue. Basically I tried searching on Chinese websites, and this is what I found. So the old monk was supposed to be someone from the Eastern Immortal Clan (tentative name, yet to be mentioned in the story) who was asked by Yue Yang’s real mom (fourth mother/si niang’s sister) to send him to earth from the soaring dragon continent, and bring him back to the continent when the time comes. [/spoiler]

      • Jason says:

        Q1: So i get how he turned the Barbaric Cow into a Barbaric Cow Shadow but would that mean the the Barbaric Cow Shadow is part of Yue Yang’s Phantom Shadow and is one of his Guardian Beast?

        Q2: I get how the Bloody Queen fused with the shadow and all but does this mean shes apart of the shadow too or is a regular contracted beast and also is she one of Yue Yang’s Guardian spirts?

        • Trevor Evans says:

          The way I understand it – is that it was unique kind of contract, it wasn’t with him directly but with his inherent guardian spirit that came with his Grimoire. He admittedly doesn’t have that much control over it, it still maintains itself identity. He basically has to ask it to (bribe it)/will it to do what he want but she can resist him and his will. It can not hurt him and I think a side effect from this is that he can keep it summoned for 8-10 days like his shadow cow but doesn’t do it due to drawing attention to him. He keeps his secrets well hidden from others. I think she can also summon herself out if she wants too, not to sure on this point.

        • Trevor Evans says:

          My 1st comment was on the Q2, Q1 – The shadow cow is part of his guardian spirit that came with his Grimoire. He can summon up to 10 shadows that last for ten days. He can overlay shadows (I think invisible to everyone else) and use them to boost power. They mentioned as well that it count as an extra life, so a sniper shot to him would kill a shadow but not him (I could be wrong about this but I think this is like when he got flickered/blurs to killer moves done to him). He used one of his ten shadows to make the shadow cow. He then levelled up his Grimoire guardian, I forgot what and why but he could no longer summon it out for 10 days and it got reduced to 8. He can theoretically have 10 shadows and/or 10 shadow creatures. He is OP.

        • 2god2 says:

          The contract between yue yangs phantom shadow and the bloody queen was just to bypass the soul easer effect of Possession. The conditon of the contract is pretty much: I keep my soul, i become yue yangs guardian spirit beast

  2. mindbreaker912009 says:

    wouldn’t that means that he was living a fake life on earth will the real earth guy was living his life as a fake and that would explain will he couldn’t contract the summon book because he was a being without magic also would not that mean that the old monk would have kick him anyway so because of the sword girl he gain more power to help his family because he views the part of the family that took him in an views him as their kid even though they have several of their own. that also means that his mother and father could be alive on earth as they saw the life living in the other as to hard but wanted their kid to grow and when he was of a age teenage he would be sent back to the original world so he could learn about his history.

  3. Colin says:

    Why does Yue Yang keep getting referred to as a thief? I could kinda understand it from the people who know him a little considering how secretive and sneaky he is but people he has just met will also refer to him as a thief.

  4. horas says:

    From manga/manhwa, Yue Yang won fight againt an gangs of bully. After that a black hole appeared and suck him to soaring dragon continent.

    • 2god2 says:

      The manhwa is a terrible representation of the story, if you have seen the translations you would know they make no sense. As for the story is it competely different then the orignal novel. They tried and failed. The only good part about the manhwa is the pictures…

      • mindbreaker912009 says:

        it was just thrown away after he talked with the sword princess. it was brought for the trade for the two important plants. so he just gave it to the mercenary company because he viewed it as a cat. It was also classified as a high class summoning beast but hard to get because of the danger of the parents and not many people would do what the he did which was go to the abyss after stealing the young and fight demon generals.

  5. LordBebe says:

    “lvl 9 not lvl 1”?

    I believe Innate Rank and Ranker Levels are Different if thats what you are talking about. He isnt a Level 9 Saint.

    Which means he could be a Level 3 [Hero] while being a Level 1 Innate Ranker wielding a Silver Grimoire and a Diamond Rank Beast like Xiao Wen Li.

    Summoner Rank, Innate Rank, Grimoire Rank, and Beast Rank can have varying differences in abilities.

    Usually not because by the time one is a Innate Ranker they are usually over a 100 years old so all of their other Ranks/abilities are trained to a high level by then.

    Imagine you are playing a game and in the beginning your character is already level 100 and all of his physical stats get a boost. But your skills/abilities/spells/magic are all still level 1.

      • LordBebe says:

        I made a wrong analogy.

        Imagine you are playing a game and in the beginning your character is level 1 but he gets a skill you should only receive at Level 100 and so all of his physical stats get a boost. But your still Level 1 and all of your skills/abilities/spells/magic are all still level 1.

        Ranker is Summoning and is external while Innate Ranker is like Martial Arts and internal.

        At least thats how I see it.
        But increasing your Ranker Level should also increase your physical abilities if I’m not mistaken but not nearly as much as being an Innate Ranker.

        Most other Innate Rankers are high level Summoning Rankers as well do they get a double boost.

        Our MC is a Innate Level 1 Ranker while being a low level Summoning Ranker so I imagine if he meets another Innate Ranker he’d be at a disadvantage (since not only will they be a Innate like him but they should also be like Level 7 Overlord or above with Diamond Rank Grimoire and Gold/Diamond Rank Beasts) unless the MC becomes a Level 2 Innate Ranker or increases his Summoning Rank to Level 6 [Elder] or Level 7 [Overlord].

        • beaver201162 says:

          The cheat ‘skill’ he received was the innate hidden sword qi, as I see it. However, the innate nirvana flames and world destroying wheel could have come through the method of leveling up that was mentioned later on, and was awoken through sky law enraging him.
          …Or, a comination of all three. Most of his battles he doesn’t use his grimoir, so he technically Should be a Much higher level. Though that’s the case, the experience he gained was put towards his foundation in the levels he was already in making his foundation much more sturdy.
          Is it possible his foundation would already be at the size of a regular level 9, if all this theory is true?

        • 2god2 says:

          Yue Yang acorrding to the Ancient Code is only a mere Level four champion. Thus the Ancient Code treats him like so, however, Due to Yue Yangs [God Blood] and his [Divine Vision] the Ancient Code treats him with favor. as the Ancient Code was made and mantained by gods. But back to topic, Yue Yang is an innate – which is a rank unique to the summoner not the beasts. Levels 1-9 saint are for summon capabilitys. As you level up the Ancient Code grants you benefits to your person as a side dish, the main benefit of ranking up your level is your ammount of summons and the future benfits from the Ancient Code when you complete something it gives out for a mission. As an innate Yue Yang has the physical capabilitys surpassing a Level 9 [Saint] but is still restricted by the Ancient Code when summoning. Thats why he bypasses the Ancient Code by using his [Gods Blood] because the Ancient Code does not restrict gods. This is also why he could turn a human into a guardian beast.

    • LordBebe says:

      I’m guessing its a rank within a rank. Maybe when he gets to like level 10 he’ll upgrade to innate rank 2?

      Usually there is something like a notification like when his Grimoire levels up or when his skills level up which is why I dont think he is Innate 2 or 3 right now but rather Innate 1 level 3

      Obviously I could be wrong

    • 2god2 says:

      His Sword Qi innate skill has reached the fifth realm from where i can read up to. Don’t know where that translates into levels though

  6. SpaceMonkey JJ says:

    Q1: So i get how he turned the Barbaric Cow into a Barbaric Cow Shadow but would that mean the the Barbaric Cow Shadow is part of Yue Yang’s Phantom Shadow and is one of his Guardian Beast?

    Q2: I get how the Bloody Queen fused with the shadow and all but does this mean shes apart of the shadow too or is a regular contracted beast and also is she one of Yue Yang’s Guardian spirts?

    • Lazy Cat says:

      I believe that since his shadow phantom is his original guardian beast. All the beast that it fusioned with would count as guardian spirits (his guardian spirit is massively special O_o) Therefore they won’t actually desapear even if they die in battle, at least that’s what I think.

      • Trevor Evans says:

        You are correct. He can also have 10 overlaying shadows and/or 10 shadow creatures. All counted as guardian spirit beasts (So even a creature that is a beast could be turned into a guardian spirit shadow creature).

    • 2god2 says:

      Yue Yangs Bloody queen is his Gurdian spirit beast, The contract the queen made with his shadow works like this: I keep my soul,i become yue yangs guardian beast. The contract nullifed the soul easing effect of the shadows Possession skill

    • zohanz says:

      they aren’t summons. not sure what but they aren’t summons. at best the wristband dragon is just tagging along with him and he is the master of the divine grimoire in name only(for now)

      • 2god2 says:

        Yue Yang’s Divine Gilmore IS contracted to his soul, like his sliver gilmore is, remember, Yue yang used his blood in accordance to the acient code to contract the Divine Gilmore. The reason the golden beast has physical form (a wristband) is because it is a transdecending mythical beast and is incompelete. Futhermore is also contracted as Yue yangs gurdian beast. The only non-gaurdian beasts Yue Yang has are the Throny Demoness and the Puppet golden mice. So in thoery he could summon all his beasts at once being a level 2 braveman

  7. michael widjaja says:

    is there any different between the novel version and the manhua version? in the manhua, the story already develop until chap 40. where i should start on the novel version, when i want to continue the story from the manhua?

    • wizjimmy says:

      well, from the start, LN doesn’t have an extra mermaid swimming in the house.
      and i believe the manga version doesn’t have him signing up in both mercenary and assassin guild

    • 2god2 says:

      There is some differantal changes, but the rough outline is present. The problem with the manhua is that, the translation or editors are horrible at puting fluent sentences together. Its like reading the machine translation lol

  8. blue says:

    so what rank is the MC lvl 2 [braveman] or lvl 3 [hero]? Cause the comments have confused me.
    if Grimoire and beast ranks increase from using the grimoire and beast respectively. how does rank increase?

    Note: this doesn’t count as spoilers right? i am assuming everybody is read up to date.

  9. Lednacek says:

    where is the bloody queen? why isnt it in the info?
    and could we get info on his grimoire?
    what mosters are in it and which ones are not?

    • 2god2 says:

      normally yess, but our hero bypasses all rules, at Level 6 the Ancient Code places that restriction so that it becomes harder for more powerful beasts to appear on the lower planes. But using [Gods Blood] Yue yang does not have to follow this restriction.

  10. Damohé Bianchi says:

    Non-contracted Beasts:

    Hui Tai Lang
    Description: tried to stole Yue Yang’s Demon King Ha Xin’s arms but ended up almost dead (R=39).

    should be:
    Non-contracted Beasts:

    Hui Tai Lang
    Description: tried to EAT(or steal) Demon King Ha Xin’s arm but ended up almost dead (R=39).

  11. alu says:

    About the upgrade of the grimorie to Silver-ranked Intermediate could be in chapter 155:

    from chapter 155:
    “A faint golden light appeared on the surrounding of his body.
    A mysterious and strange ring of light appeared right below his feet!”

    from chapter 157:
    “Not mentioning Yue Yang, Yue Bing and Fatty Hai’s summoning grimoires had both risen in grade.”

    The text says nothing about an upgrade for Yue Yang’s grimorie, but after defeating the Marquis of Zi Jin and more than 100 mercenaries, I think it would be time for an upgrade.

  12. jesse mendez says:

    what i want to see is the other characters related to to yue yang because to see how they are related to him or how did they met and so on if that is possible. like fourth mother and little sister and bing

  13. Imwhatufear says:

    The Mantis egg has hatched and is contracted as a level 3 gold beast. R=239

    Barbarian Cow Shadow: Named “Ah Man” by her master. Humanoid special-type. Intelligence Unlocked. Gold-ranked Level 5. Living half-entity. Guardian Beast.
    No longer has the leather armor it burned off and now wears the White Bull from the Taurus Temple’s Nose ring as a bracelet. R=201

    • 2god2 says:

      thanks, the only problem is that the leather armor did indeed burn off, however, yue yang put on the leather armor to cover up her chest, so since no new armor or cloths have been put on her we can only presume yue yang bought her a new set of leather armor as leather isn’t rare in this story.

  14. notreallysmart says:

    what are grimores exactly? if there are literally stores filled with them, why don’t more people have them?

    • 2god2 says:

      ok this is the hardest question ive gotten so far but, Grimores are physical and spiritual items created by this thing called the ‘Ancient Code’. The Grimores are this worlds border between the spirtual and the physical. they can become spiritual and merge with the summoners body or become corporeal and apear before the summoner. Grimores only accept humans and other living things that are accepted by the ‘Ancient Code’. Once accepted, the person or thing that binds to the grimore merges their soul and abilitys with it. The grimore brings out the potential of the living enity tied to it. The ‘world’ inside the grimore isn’t the grimores itself, it is the inner world of the summoner. In yue yangs case, his godly grimore is his true inner self, whereas his gold grimore is just a small devolping peice of his inner world.

  15. wantsoanswer says:

    Who is this Marquis of Zi Jin that suddenly appear in ch 145, is he another fake?
    Cause when MC describe him as the brother of the Zi Jin Emperor and later we found out, he is actually a demon prince.

    And when will MC use his Divine Vision again to see the real meaning of the diary that his parents have left him.

  16. Sean Penrod says:

    Q1. SPOILER
    I was reading through near chapter 306 and he makes a list of all this shit that he needs to do. I was thinking off this stuff and it isnt on the list and I dont remember it ever happening but did he ever clear the last Zodiac Temple? If so what was the reward for that temple specifically and did he receive a big reward for completing all 12? Or did that just kinda get forgotten

    • shiroyukineko says:

      So at chapter 48, Yue Yang cleared the Aries Temple. At chapter 218, he cleared Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and Leo. He didn’t manage to clear Virgo. Then he went for the Hundred Schools Elite Competition, and at chapter 229, he challenged and cleared the Virgo Temple. At 231, he cleared Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius. At chapter 242, it was briefly mentioned in the first paragraph that Yue Yang cleared Pisces Temple through the night before his match against Bai Yun Fei. He didn’t get a big reward for completing all twelve, but he did get a lot of rewards for each temple he cleared.

      • Sean Penrod says:

        TYVM I remember that prize and point now. I just seemed to remember before him coming out right before pisces and couldn’t remember anything talking about it. They also mentioned earlier about wondering what would happen if some 1 did clear the 12 so i figured that was foreshadowing to something actually happening.

        • Pablo AS says:

          i dont remember when it happened but the big loli in the dreams absorbed a white brilliant pearl that MC got for clearing the 12 zodiac temples, i remember reading this just a few chapters ago, around 305 or so i think?, but i dont remember him mentioning that… in which chapter does the big loli in the dream absorbs the white pearl and then returns it to him?

  17. Kulac says:

    I don’t understand 1 think about yue bing.She has 2 guardian beast a trent and a tree spirit demones.But in the story alot of time she summon 2 trent’s and they died a few times to if 1 is a guardian and 1 is not they way bout can come back again.And i dont rember to see that trent has the ability to multiply like the flower?anyone can explein if it knows.

    • 2god2 says:

      As a guardian beast, the trent does not die but becomes unusable for a time instead, the author references this as they ‘died’ because if this were not a gaurdian beast the damage they took would have killed them. Like in practice, your sensei hits you and says ‘you have been killed’ to let you know you would have lost your life in a real battle. As for why she has two of them is because of the perks of the plant category, the ‘two’ trents she summons are really only one. Plants can create dupicates of themselfs using a root system.

  18. Kijin says:

    Does this Author have other stories? I quite like his writing style. Its whimsical and entertaining, both the comedic parts and the action-packed ones.

  19. Zsolt Fülöp says:

    If you ever played an RPG (or possibly MMO), this should clear up basically everything. If not: what the hell are you doin’ mate?

    • 2god2 says:

      It is a fair statement but, in this novel (Long Live Summons), the universe is not clear cut with numbers or explanations like a MMORPG. Alot of the data given initially is vague and needs examples from when the skill or ability is used to determine what it can do or is. For example, being an innate, yue yang is an innate but also a [Elder] which are two different systems of power. Being a [elder] is like a status given by the ancient code that allows him to do more things but an innate is like his personal power. Innates can go from level 1 to level 10 before becoming ‘great innates’ which range in my guess from great innate level one to ten before becoming something like gods. But even then, yue yangs innate level one could still beat some peoples innate level 5 or six.

      • Zsolt Fülöp says:

        Yah well … though I felt there was no reason to clearly state that some level of sarcasm was involved in the making of my post, maybe there was after all.

        As we never saw numbers, obviously, that’s a no-point. Never intended it to be either. 😀

        Elder sort of IS Jobclass lvl6/9. Should’ve written ‘Elder’ after it. Point given.

        Also, I didn’t want to write the whole Heaven Tier Innate stuff, as it’s kind of a spoiler at the point where this translation currently is. It’s kind of a main branch though, if one reads the machine translation.

        Anyway, the point was not to perfectly quantify everything, but to illustrate (spiced with a little sarcasm) in an easy-to-understand way what the ‘roots’ are. MMO stats fit that, and are kind of to the point IMHO. According to comments (not only on this site), many people are for some inexplicable reason incapable of identifying (and most notably differentiating between) these ‘roots’, which are
        – Summoner levels (1-9)
        – Innate levels (1-10 Earth Tier, then 1-10 Heaven Tier, then Divine Innate, also has Supreme condition for all 21 levels which gives a power boost)
        – Beast ranks (Normal-Diamond + Holy Beast-Divine Beast-Transcending Divine Beast, former is the rank displayed in the Grimoire, latter relates to human-level sentience, possession of personal Grimoire and being integrated into the summoner’s fate, I think, respectively)
        – Grimoire ranks (Bronze-Diamond + Celestial and Godly, latter two are special with completely fixed numbers at 100, and 10, if memory serves me)
        – Skills (Inherent skills from Grimoire, others gained elsewhere, rank peak and progression not clear, but starts from 1)
        – Abilities (Extras from other sources, like the Wrath Flame from Scarlet Concubine and Yue Family spear technique, non-ranked)
        – Equipment (Normal-Diamond + Holy and Divine).

        So yeah. One can be f. e. a Level 6 Elder, Earth Tier Innate Level 5, non-Supreme, having a Diamond-ranked lvl6 Guardian Beast, which is a 5-star Holy Beast, and have an Intermediate Platinum-ranked Grimoire with a Lvl5 Inherent Skill, some layman warrior technique, and have a Platinum-ranked dagger for a weapon.

        Then again, why are people so confused by different measurement scales advancing at the same time? Even a car’s fuel gauge and speedometer move at the same time … it’s the same principle. Innates have a clear aura around them (unless they hide it), so they’re kinda’ easy to judge to be powerful, but usually, judging one’s power at a glance comes from the Summoner level. A car’s ‘good’ because it handles good speed with low mileage, high comfort, low price, looks good and easy to maintain, with lots of extras. Some values have to be low, some high. A summoner is much easier – the best summoners have all ‘roots’, and the higher level, the better, and as for skills, abilities, equipment and beasts, the more – preferrably high-levelled/ranked, also the better.

        Well, anything goes, I guess. Attentive reading does the trick quite easily though.

        • 2god2 says:

          Your right, however the measurement scales and terminology that we use it what the novel uses therefore, we have to include them, as for what you said about spoilers, the whole wiki is spoilers, in fact, all wiki’s are spoilers in some way, shape or form. The terminology is all explained in the first part before Yue Yang’s bio. A holy beast is a classification from the ancient code, that a beast has gained intelligance and what the ancient code gives them is some form of innate level ability’s. But one can be a innate but also only a level 6 elder, in the the flower queens case, Bronze-ranked Level 1 Holy Beast(innate rank) by R=312 . Your right in that this wiki page seems like a wall of text, but i don’t have the formating options to reorganized everything as i would wish to.

          Yeah, it is hard to keep track of things if one wants to keep everything in line, but there’s no need to IMHO. F. e. Beasts’ potential increases when they undergo variant evolution (which is a special evolution path, it may have infinite variants, the only criteria is a valid, quantifiable progression, that doesn’t happen in the textbook way – e. g. gaining experience via battles). That’s kinda’ what you referred to – when Thorny Flower changes variants, she either progresses or retrogresses ranks, and even levels.

          But that’s still easy to understand, if we consider two variants’ powers to have the same units of measurement, with two different scales. Even if a Thorny Flower Demoness is Platinum ranked 4, if it undergoes the variant evolution, it retrogresses to Bronze rank 1 Golden Crowned Thorny Flower Queen. Though I think that sentience simply comes with the form in that case, and that’s why it’s a Holy Beast from the get-go. It’s probably more related to potential – the Platinum 4 level of power for a Thorny Flower Demoness may roughly equate to the Bronze 1 power for a Golden Crowned Thorny Flower Queen. Reason is: later in the novel, there are ‘Innate Beasts’ which are waaaay off of Holy Beast rank. There are even Heaven-tier Innate Beasts, high-levelled as well, which aren’t Holy Beasts.

          Also, think about Red. She retained her abilities, and only gained more abilities when evolving via certain methods (12 Zodiac Temples, or the Scarlet Concubine’s flame integration), or (mostly, actually) due to Yue Yang’s playing around. Being a Holy Beast was caused by her gaining sentience (probably buffed by the Immemorial Rune a LOT), and her becoming a Divine Beast (Divine Envoy actually) was caused by her contracting a Grimoire.

          It’s actually my favourite aspect in this novel – this How to Train Your Dragon-ish ‘raise’em with care and teach them a lot, that’s the sure way of producing Holy Beasts, not the everyday Wisdom Fruit fest’. It’s so much more interesting to watch the Beasts grow due to actual comprehension of experiences – like in the case of Chaos Ethereal Spirit, when they had that ‘conversation’ with Hui Tai Lang in the Element Palace (conversation being a dog meowing, and a mass of fire looking puzzled). And that’s why I love this series 😀

    The info above is incorrect according to your own translation.
    Reread ch 88. She’s never said to be lvl 3.

    Why does Bloody Queen start off as Lvl 5 and remains at lvl 5 until ch 100 or thereabout, then she’s suddenly dropped to lvl 3?
