A less tragic Nirvana in Fire meets Lord of the Rings!

I writing this review with 9 episodes left (I wanna take the rest nice and slow coz I don't want this awesome drama to end).

It's important to note that the drama went into production before the author finished writing the web novel, so if anything the movie version might be truer to the original work and differ from the drama. read more OK, enough of OT stuff, back to the core of review:


Fans of Lord of the Rings will rejoice that FotD is essentially a reimagining. You have the Star Formation that gives power to the Empress that is essentially the One Ring. It is essentially detrimental to Empress (it's actually something evil that is controlling her), yet she has trouble letting the precious-s-s go.

Then, there is CCS dagger-like sword that looks like Bilbo's Sting dagger. And of course the little dragon ZS is modeled after Smaug the Dragon from The Hobbit, but a good kind dragon, not an evil one. Then, when LL teased ZS with hard-to-guess riddles, that scene essentially imitated "Riddles in the Dark" between Bilbo and Gollum in The Hobbit.

Superimposed over this are scenes remiscient of Nirvana in Fire: Sick guy returns to the Capital to attain his destiny, elite guards getting murdered to frame someone, the main hero can't actually fight against powerful villains but uses his cunning to subdue them, an Imperial ruler that is cold and "heartless" even towards her own child, etc.

Nevertheless, the drama packs an awesome punch coz let's face it there is nothing new under the sun, only inspiration from some works that existed before!

They are both Fantasy Historical Chinese drama so similar universe. They have several races who are enemy : the winged clan and human for Novoland and Demon against the human ally to the beast for Fighter. There is training and improve capacity. They are prince in the mains character. The human queen is not tender with her son. The main lead is involve with fate/destiny witch put their life in danger. There is romance and handsome actors ;)

      Same here. I went into the show thinking it was a filler until something better comes along. Fortunately, it turns out to be the [better] filling!!

    Guli Nazha aka Xu Young, her expressions regardless happy, sad, suffering, worry or injure are all the same. I prefer princess luoluo and the little black dragon.

      Unfortunately, I have felt that way for the female lead in every one of her dramas. She constantly gets good roles, but shows zero emotion in all of them.

      it really does suck. Happened to me last year too with a different drama too.

      I did see Dramafever has a page for "Fighter of the Destiny" so they might be subbing it their when it finishes airing.

      Even if they are an official channel or they get licensing for it, the videos can be still be reported and taken down/put on private, because of how easy it is for some random person/company to go click report on YouTube.
