Page Count: 1568 pages
In order to survive in troubled times; in order to revenge for the dear; in order to claim justice for all 118 people, who died undeservedly, in the village. Lin WanYue took the residence registration of the younger brother Lin FeiXing to join the army, and was determined to kill the Huns all over the world.
The empress died in the court, leaving the 16-year-old princess and the eight-year-old crown prince to rely upon each other for life. Several princes older than the crown prince were greedy for the throne, and the two were in a precarious position.
I love this book so so much! This is an FF slow burn romance between a princess and a cross dressing general and there’s I love more than ancient Chinese sapphics! I’ve always loved cross dressing asian historical dramas and I was so damn happy to find a sapphic romance web novel. Its also ownvoices and I love how Li Xian’s sexuality is portrayed.
This is my fourth Chinese novel (all the previous ones were MXTX’s works) but the first GL one. It’s around 180 chapters including all the extras (which is a continuation and a must read)
It is so good and I really want everyone to read and go through all the emotions I did, be it the humour or the angst. There’s also 3 other FF couples and one MM one. So yes to the various queer relationships and friendships. If you love slow burn romance with an intriguing plot, definitely check this out! Honestly I was hooked from the title itself and I love how Lin Wanyue became an absolute mess everytime she’s in Li Xian’s presence. Their relationship is so beautiful and loving that it makes you feel like an intruder.
It also has an amazing audio drama and a manhua with beautiful art.
