This is the novel that won the poll. We are in for a loooong ride folks ~
My short somewhat spoiler-free review of the novel:
Truly, a comical novel that really comes full circle. The last novel that comes full circle from Jiu Liu Fei Xiang that I’ve read was The King is Here. The novel is set in the same world as San Sheng and Siming (God of Fate/Destiny), thus you can get see the other two couples! This novel wraps up the stories from the other two novels with epilogues where you get to see the children from two couples along with our main couple, the Little Orchid and Demon King 🙂
I really like that I get to see the other two couples after their stories and I find our main couple’s journey to be full of novel experiences. I love their slow love development as noted by other readers to be more grounded and their love contrasts with the other two couples whose love was a first sight kind of thing.
It spans around 84 chapters? with what seem to be 6 epilogues? Typical of Jiu Liu Fei Xiang’s current writings style, the beginning is hilarious and then slowly develops into a more melancholy tone near the end. For me the ending was okay, but in my opinion, the epilogues are the ones that actually tie up the story properly.
I want to keep my commentary on this short since I don’t want to spoil too much lol.

Important announcements to read:
***Please search up using ‘cdrama’ tag for quicker find of the one post I’ve mentioned in the 2nd announcement.
ChocolateCosmos’ Important Notes:
- You need to click on first announcement to access the hint for Epilogue 2.
- You need to read second announcement post to find the location that was mentioned of the epilogues + end of Epilogue 2 to get hint/location of Epilogue 4-6. It’s recommended to read both Epilogue 2 and 3 to get the story context for Epilogue 4-6.
- I put passwords and the not-so-straightforward ways of accessing the epilogues to deter aggregators a bit and also from possibly being told to take them down as Epilogue 4-6 are not readily accessible (can’t find the original text of them) on the web.
- If you need help/guide (as long as you don’t say “what is the password?” or “give me the password”), I can assist via email. My email can be found on this blog’s sidebar. Any comments with the passwords mentioned will be deleted.
