Eight hundred years ago, Xie Lian was the Crown Prince of the Xian Le kingdom; one who was beloved by his citizens and the darling of the world. Unsurprisingly, he ascended to the Heavens at a very young age. Now, eight hundred years later, Xie Lian ascends to the Heavens for the third time as the laughing stock of all three realms. On his first task as a god, he meets a mysterious demon who rules the ghosts and terrifies the Heavens……yet unbeknownst to Xie Lian, this demon king has been paying attention to him for a very, very long time.
Heaven Official Blessing is the largest of the trio of mxtx's novel. It has five volumes in total out of which 2 and 4 give the backstory and the rest the current events. When you intially start reading the it, especially the first volume, you will.want to drop it. I have too, twice. But keep reading, and you will not be disappointed. Heaven Official Blessings spin the thread of fate and love for over 800 years. As the story progresses you will be bombarded with a barrage of emotions that our story's protogonists Xie Lian and Hua Cheng feels through his centuries of life. It's a story of mysteries, cultivation, gods and ghosts, ancient cities buried under volcanic ash. I a gripping tale amazing beyond words. It will make you laugh cry and go tense with suspense at the same time.
i have no words for this.... just..... wow. heaven official's blessing is the longest of mxtx novels and the most well-written one. the emotions you feel while reading this, the story is tremendously beautiful. i cannot even express my love for all the characters and their complexity, especially towards the main couple. gosh, their lives are so deeply connected, their love is so strong. this trully picks the concept of the red string of fate, destiny, true love and devotion an slaps you in the face with it.
This is my favourite novel. I honestly hate reading, but this is an exception. I love this so much! The storyline is amazing, and I feel like I can even see what the character's look like just by reading it. As per the amazing storyline, the romance is extraordinary! I can bet that you'll be hooked during the reading. Yes, this is a BL, but it's shounen-ai, meaning that there are no...scenes. (except in the extras, I think?) The demon king Hua Cheng is covered in mystery. He does his utmost to protect and shield Xie Lian from harm and places his absolute trust and faith in him. Xie Lian and Hua Cheng's relationship is slow to develop but absolutely satisfying to watch, even more so when they do finally get together. This was an emotional rollercoaster, and the ending is just...wow. The Manhua/Donghua on the other hand, the art is absolutely stunning. And follows the original plot of the novel.
