Synopsis: The protagonist, Yang Guo, is the orphaned son of Yang Kang. The couple Guo Jing and Huang Rong take care of Yang Guo for a short period of time before sending him to the Quanzhen Sect on Mount Zhongnan for better guidance in moral values and orthodox martial arts. In Quanzhen, Yang Guo is often picked on and bullied by his fellow students and discriminated against by his master. Yang Guo flees from Quanzhen and ventures unknowingly into the nearby Tomb of the Living Dead, where the Ancient Tomb Sect is based. There, he meets Xiaolongnu, a mysterious maiden of unknown origin, and becomes her apprentice. They live together in the tomb for many years until Yang Guo grows up. Yang Guo and Xiaolongnu develop romantic feelings for each other, but their romance is forbidden. Their love meets several tests, such as the misunderstandings that threaten to tear them apart, and their encounter with Gongsun Zhi, whom Xiaolongnu almost marries at one point. Finally, after their reunion and marriage, Xiaolongnu leaves Yang Guo and promises to meet him again 16 years later, to prevent him from committing suicide. While Yang Guo is wandering alone, he meets a giant eagle and improves his skills tremendously after learning from him. His adventures gradually mold him into a courageous hero and perhaps the most powerful martial artist of his time. Yang Guo serves his native land by helping Guo Jing resist invaders from the Mongol Empire. After winning the battle of Xiangyang, he is reunited with Xiaolongnu and they leave to live the rest of their lives in seclusion.
