Summary: The story revolves around a pair of priceless and extremely powerful weapons, known respectively as the Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber (more precisely dragon slaying's saber), which all of wulin's martial artists covet. Either or both of them are thought to allow their wielder to rule the wulin world, according to a widely circulating rumor in an oft-repeated mantra, though for some reason they are now lost.

The novel's hero is Zhang Wuji (張無忌), who through a series of dramatic events becomes a highly skilled martial arts practitioner and 34th leader of the Ming Cult.

Like in most Jinyong's novels, romance forms a major backbone to the book. Interwoven in the plot is the protagonist's romantic entanglements with four female characters.

The secret of the sword and saber is revealed midway in the novel, but the impetus of the narrative is not lost, as the author traces the upheavals which follow it.
