Name: A Dance with Death
I have lost everything, my family, my status, and now my freedom. This is my story, a story of how an enslaved assassin became a god.
Protagonist: Play as an ex-noble who has become an enslaved assassin controlled by a parasitic worm. Can you free yourself from your master’s clutches and ascend the cultivation world, or will you and your sister follow the rest of your family to the afterlife?
Sister: A warm and bubbly exterior hides a dark past.
A mix between western feudal society and the Murim world on the precipice of the industrial revolution.
This is my first time writing a novel let alone a cog. (I only started this afternoon after I realized COD was going to take another 9 hours to download, lol.)
Any feedback is welcome and since there is not much content at the moment feedback on my writing style and the direction of the novel would be most appreciated. I have thick skin, so rib me to your heart’s content.

Plot (rough with bullet points + awful grammar)
Once part of a noble house and defenders of the kingdom’s throne
Kingdom conquered by neighbor when you = 11 and sister = 9
Parents and elder brother (16) killed only younger sister left
Found by the cities shadow sect division leader while begging in the city
Pretending to be a righteous sect he offered MC to become his disciple. He gave MC a deadly parasite to control him disguised as a cultivation pill.
MC was forced to assassinate other mortals for money or they would kill him and his sister. (They are now 17 and 15)
Novel starts by killing a man
Later MC is tasked to assassinate an old lady, but she gives him martial arts to train, as her son died and left them behind. MC still has to kill her but she dies voluntarily saying she has already lived a long life.
MC trains martial arts to become more powerful and attain freedom
Master finds out about his cultivation and punishes him by killing sister keeping her soul hostage as leverage
MC’s mission is now to resurrect her using immortal methods
Makes MC more cold-hearted and ruthless
Eventually kills master and gets sister’s soul. No way of bringing her back for now so he cultivates… Ideas for what’s next?
