After an explosion, You XiaoMo finds that he is now a probationary disciple of the TianXin sect. However, he is one with dubious potential, so just when he starts to adapt to his new circumstances, he receives a piece of bad news. If he is unable to produce the required result after half a year to become an official disciple of the TianXin sect, he would be driven out of the sect.

While You XiaoMo is going all out to make medicines and earn money, he runs into Ling Xiao. To his horror, he later discovers that Ling Xiao is really someone cloaked in human skin.

Funny story, lovable YXM, cunning LX, their cute interactions, the storytelling and everything else makes it an amazing story. Those who feel itchy reading BL can read this without any problem for at least a 100 or so chapters I think?

I love this novel!! Absolutely topped the list among all of those wuxias, xianxias novels right now (my opinion but I may be biased,lol) . The only downside that I can find is that the chapter is too short. I love how the character develops in which they are not clichey, compared to most novels. Translated BL novels are uncommon while the good one is rare, and this novel is included in the rare kind. You will absolutely adore the mc and how he interacts with the other characters especially... more>> his 'husband'... the plot is kind of slow but it is compensated with character development, albeit not too much but considering the progress of the novel (ch.137), still quite good. <<less

(Edit: I think the name is a bit off, there is no need for "Master," it should just be "The Legendary Wife," though I could be wrong)

I do really like this novel, to the point where I’m willing to listen to google reading it to me. HOWEVER, I have a problem with the main pairing. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my yaoi and shounen ai, my problem has to do with their interaction with each other.

At chapter 392, their relationship is still so uneven. Everything has to go Ling... more>> Xiao’s way, the only time XiaoMo can do what he wants is when he doesn’t care. XiaoMo has to do or say what Ling Xiao wants him to do or say, otherwise he will get punished. His favorite way of punishing is on the bed. Even when it’s just for pleasure or for training, he doesn’t consider XiaoMo’s physical condition or the fact he is telling him to stop. XiaoMo also has to be careful who he hangs out with or says to other people, because Ling Xiao would get jealous. He is too controlling, and every single time XiaoMo has to go with what Ling Xiao wants, because he is afraid of some punishment. Yes, Ling Xiao pampers and protects him in other ways, but that isn’t a relationship where the two have an equal say or standing. Ling Xiao pampers and protects him because he wants to anyways, so it’s not like he is compromising, something he does not do.

Another thing, when Xiao Mo is with him, I can’t help but feel that the boy gets rather stupid. By himself or with other people, he’s quite smart, but when he is with Ling Xiao he can do/say some stupid things.

I’m not saying the two aren’t cute together, or that I they aren’t the OTP, but it still bugs me that they have such an unbalanced power relationship. If it wasn’t for that, I would have given 4 stars. At first I gave 5, because their uneven power-relathionship made sense in the beginning, but that continued even to chapter 392, so I changed it to 3. Hopefully it will change. <<less

Amazing!!! This is well done because its not all smutty, cliched BL...the characters are amazing. As a fan of both Yaoi and Xuanhuan, I give this an A+++ Now I want to erase my memory and read it all over again :3

The comments suggested that there was very little yaoi content or romance, with the story more focused on alchemy and perhaps adventure. I was totally excited since I dislike yaoi, but enjoy all the other things.

...Yeah the comment people lied. As you read it, you start thinking to yourself: Hey...this is starting to get a bit...gay.
Then you continue onwards, and although nothing major happens, you get the romance vibes from the mc and his new friend.
Then you go beyond that and the sexual tension starts sky rocketing.... more>> You are just expecting an M/M scene, and every interaction has you thinking: Oh my god, it's totally going to happen. I should stop now, why am I not stopping now?!?!

And finally it happens, and you find yourself in shock. That just happened? I kind of liked it. Oh god, am I into yaoi now?

Like don't get me wrong, I absolutely despise yaoi, but this was very well done. I think the main selling point was that it was all very believable and nothing seemed forced. It doesn't really come as a surprise either, so you're constantly hanging onto your seat in anticipation. So ladies! If you ever want to introduce your terrified guy friends to the yaoi genre, you might want to get them started on this. It's a fun read with all the classical elements of a Xianxia novel, but with more emotional characters. <<less

The story looks interesting and is quite different from anything else I've read, so at least for originality it gets 5/5. But a very big drawback, at least for me, is that the MC is the weak one, getting used by the other character. I really dislike weak main characters. Switching them would be enough to make this 4/5 at least.

The other issue is the plot holes so huge that you can drive a titanic through them:

MC has his own space that he can go to at any time, but the one time Lin Xiao threatens to kill him, he completely forgets he has it; MC is the only one to realize that Lin Xiao is a double, even though he barely saw him before, while nobody else realizes it.

First off, I’m not into bl/yaoi.

That being said, before this series had the tag (which confounded many early adopters, myself definitely included) I read this series and found it to be very well written and equally well translated. Characters actually had their personalities, the main character actually felt like a person, and the story had great pacing and progression. What it also had was a very good sense of humor.

Considering the title, I had no clue it would turn out to be a bl, even assuming that Ling Xiao was... more>> actually a female in disguise. For story and characters alone, it is a great read (at least up until the tag lives up to its namesake). As for later on, depends on if you can get into it. Personally even though I loved the story, I can’t get much further into it. <<less

First time reading "Yaoi".Pretty much it's going to be the same as drewjn's review.

I saw this novel got really popular with a good ratings , but didn't take note of the genre "Yaoi" or "BL" as I don't see it in the Tag.

Though not knowing it's Yaoi, I enjoyed reading it up to Chapter 58 and notice the interactions are getting a bit gay. Anyways, It's really well written and I like how the story goes.

Too bad I absolutely dislike Yaoi , I tried to continue reading it... more>> but failed to.

Always thought that Ling Xiao is actually a female in disguise therefore I check the Genre, and found out it was a yaoi. Probably stopping this novel for now.

Would recommend it to those whom reads BL/Yaoi or perhaps wanna try it as the Yaoi doesn't seems to be too much into gay " as at Chapter 58". Perhaps a touch of it only.

Great story, great flow 5* from me. Though the Yaoi part =( <<less

I've been reading this forever and just decided to write a review.

Our MC is You XiaoMo, or YXM as readers have simplified, who died and wakes up in the body of someone in a different world. The body's previous owner is a pill cultivating disciple of some sect who cried himself to death because of his poor talent in pill cultivation, which is based on soul force. But that was the previous body's soul, what about YXM's? At the same time, he discovers that martial student Ling Xiao is actually... more>> not human, and LX threatens YXM into making him pills to eat in return for not killing him for knowing his secret.

So what ensues is an interesting xuanhuan that isn't solely focused on romance and sex. YXM focuses on pill cultivation and LX is... there. Though there isn't much intense drama in terms of who is going to win a fight, it's still fun learning about the world that YXM has ended up in through his interactions and reactions with LX.

While this is yaoi bl, it's not really super sexual except for a few chapters about 100+ chapters in. Otherwise, it's just mildly bromantic. <<less

I'm giving this a 3/5 because the title still has no relevancy whilst 100 chapters in. I'm really confused, I like the style of writing, and the BL kinda came outa nowhere for me since no one tagged it as such till recently (OR I WAS REALLY STUPID AND MISSED IT). I'm really questioning my sexuality reading this, but the plot so gud tho I keep coming back.

I'm giving this 3 stars. I adore the interaction between the leads. It's adorable but as some reviewers have pointed out, it is a very power unbalanced relationship. Even after years together (yes, I binge read the novel to the end), the MC is still jittery of Ling Xiao. In fact, they almost have a owner-pet relationship because Ling Xiao always gets his way. He would spoil and give in to the MC whenever he feels like it and when he doesn't - well.

... more>>
Spoiler

Plot-wise, it is action-packed, funny and well-paced with plenty of annoying cannon fodders who met satisfying ends. But there is no end goal. It was arc after arc after arc where the MC and Ling Xiao get rid of the arc's villain simply out of convenience or because that villain annoys them and they get stronger and stronger - because well. They can. Admittedly, towards the last arc, hints/loose ends from earlier chapters are finally being addressed (e.g. Lin Xiao's past) and they had a clear objective to get rid of the final boss, but it wasn't for any meaningful reason like saving the world or even taking revenge. It was because the final boss hate the two leads and would come looking for them anyway.

The MC is also somewhat of a wuss. Yes, he is relatable; like having somewhat modern principles about not butchering people and running away when the enemy is obviously too strong. Yet it gets annoyingly formulaic whenever he fucks up, accidentally offends a cannon fodder, then basically waits around for Ling Xiao to rescue him and clean up his mess. Overtime, the MC does develop as a character and become more independent but in my opinion, he still relies a little too much on Ling Xiao (one can argue that maybe he is suffering from stockholm syndrome).

[collapse]

But having said all that, it was a great read what with introducing interesting characters, hilarious interactions, drama and fast-pace action. <<less

One of the few novels where you can take the 5* ratings seriously. See those couple of 1*’s? Those are people who instantly disregarded this novel because of the shounen AI tag (Which basically have 0 presence, besides the MC being teased a bit every once in a while and some cute stuff every 40 chapters.).

This is basically just another great Chinese style magic fantasy adventure novel (With the adventure still preparing for take off.) with some twists. The MC is transported into another body in another world and embarks... more>> on the path of a magus (Which is mostly alchemy/pill refining at the moment.), there’s some humans vs devils conspiracy stuff going on in the background, which will most likely be the focal point at some part of the story later.

Honestly, if you’ve read World of Cultivation then this novel has a lot of similarities. Just imagine that Pu Yao has possessed the body of another sect member and also has the occasional urge to cuddle a bit. <<less

The story is great, and doesn't contain "many" cliche that we usually found in typical Chinese novel like, the main character goes Gung-ho OP shit suddenly, Survival of The Fittest slogan everywhere and bla...bla... etc. The main point of the novel is good written, the story flow is not too fast but not slow, lovable MC, and even though this is a romance novel with Yaoi at that, it does not forget the aspect of Xuanhuan genre itself.

Therefore, the five star rating it get is not unreasonable. Hence, I recommend... more>> you to read this piece of novel. <<less

Ok, yeah. I read BL.

For those who are disgusted by this genre, be warned because the amount of "affection" increases as the story goes on. But it's gradual, not *BAM* he got raped (no rape here).

However looking past that, the novel is very well written, including the characters, cultivation, and actual story. The relationship between YXM and LX is more like something to spice up the novel. Just friendship isn't special or interesting enough, and it makes the novel more um unique I guess? Not just the dry... more>> pill making or training to become OP. But it's not like the author just throws it in there, so it's not forced.
Spoiler

Our MC, YXM, is seemingly at the bottom of the food chain -- appearance wise, talent wise, everything wise. But he makes up for it with actual hard work and his stupidity I mean naiveness to people's malevolence.

The initial meeting between YXM and LX, I did not like and I actually felt some injustice. But LX grew on me, and I began to root for the advancement in their relationship as well as YXM's progress in his pill making.

[collapse]

I think, if you're interested in seeing what all the hype is about, and like Xianxia, read it. Just give it a try, you can drop it anytime. If an infamous "scene" pops up, just skip/skim and move on. The author gets the basics of the story out of the way first, before even starting the boyxboy action and, to be honest, I could barely tell it was that kind of story till midway (around 50s) reading it. The plot will make sense even if you miss the juicy, BL moments. <<less

I’m not a fan of BL stuff, and I have tried this one up to 32, but I’m still dropping it because it does not fill my tastes, really, well translated and written, as already mentioned, it is a delightful read. Just that I can’t stomach yaoi, and I had eyes but didn't see the TAGS.

This story is a "bang"! The author is really good in separating the genres of the story. Blending of the events seems really natural and not to forget that although Ling Xiao seems to be more in the limelight, You XiaoMo do also have his. This couple really is the best. They even overwhelmed the position of the best love team in my novel list. Hihihi. I didn't expect to read a very long Yaoi novel and never get bored with it. Amazing.

Probably the only translated novel that incorporated the martial art genre and BL genre. Such a rare gem! It have the same setting like all generic Martial Art novels with the cultivation, sects and whatnut. The best thing is the MC is such a relatable guy. Unfortunately he is quite unlucky person.. however you can say he has his OP, ruthless, bully prince by his side to settle all his problems (probably...)
