Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Mystery, Supernatural, Xianxia, WuxiaWorld, BL
Part of Book Series: 魔道祖师
As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei WuXian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was back-stabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans—Lan WangJi, his archenemy.
This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei WuXian slowly realizes that Lan WangJi, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei WuXian than he is letting on.

Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.
First off. This novel is written in Chinese and completed with 119 chapters. The English translation is still ongoing.
This is the first Chinese novel that I have let myself read. Usually I read novel in English. I have to say, it leaves me wanting to read more of the author works after this. I first started it after watching the anime version of this.
The author made used of the element of alternating flashbacks and current timeline to tell the story. At first, you might be confused as to what is the relationship between each characters as more and more characters is introduced. But it gets easy eventually.
Even though the number of character introduced is quite a lot, each characters personality are well developed. I find the start of novel to be boring, but as the more I read towards the middle, it starts to pick up, and I can’t put it down.
The main character, Wei Wu Xian have a sense of humour, while his partner — Lan Wang Ji, is a stoic guy, who looks cold outside, but inside he is hot and passionate when it comes to Wei Wu Xian. There is no Mary Sue character in this novel, all characters have its own quirks and flaws.
There are a few phrases that I have learned in the novel which is very meaningful and makes me reflect a lot of things.
