A Nest of Snakes Inside an Old Tomb


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As a human reborn as a viper, all aspects of Yin Xiaoxiao’s life were beautiful except for when it came to food.

As a silver snake meeting an ink snake, Yin Xiaoxiao could accept whatever his husband’s clan was.

As a viper with no inherited memories, Yin Xiaoxiao found that the ancient tomb and all the different snake clans could really stress a snake out.

In summary, Yin Xiaoxiao’s life is nothing but this: Different viper clans marry. The old tomb is ruled by his next-door neighbor’s clan. My spouse, Heitan, this naughty precious snake, worries me.

Actually, this is the story of an evil little black snake doting on a confused foolish little silver snake.

Boss Mo: Yin Xiaoxiao, you’ve stolen honey again!

Yin Xiaoxiao: It was definitely your sons who ate it!

Baby snakes: Dad’s a lying snake!

Yes the story is cute and ML very pampering although at first he was tsundere. It's mostly a slice of life and have a little drama. If you love fluff and doesn't want a drama, this novel good for you

I love the ML, but I'm still doesn't like the MC, for me yes he was cute, loyal, and cheerfull, but I don't like his selfish (altough he will admit he was selfish), naive, childish, and his laziness. Sometimes I'm confused with his temper, it's so bad. Sometimes he got angry with childish reasons or without reason got angry, make ML confused.

he doesn't want hunting for food, and incubate eggs, doesn't have a responbility. Hunting and incubate the child become ML job. Even the MC ask his children to catch their own food, YOU ARE A ADULT AND YOUR CHILDREN STILL A CHILD, it's like a father told their underage child to get a job


Sorry my rant, the one I like the most is the ML, the ML make me still try reading till the end. Altough the MC has a good things too

like when there a human invasion, I thought he will protect the human because he was former human, Fortunetly his mind is more to snake side and think if he help human, it will become the snake side got injured.


But still the MC is not my cup of tea. Sorry for bad grammar and my rant.

I feel that the MC isn't that bad. He does care for his new snake family and he did use to be human in the past so of course he will think differently. Also, I think he is more lonely and frustrated at having no human to talk to on the same level about things at times. His personality serves as a nice contrast to the ML, so they complement each other well.

It's a cute slice of life story with a main mystery about the tomb. The snakes are all... more>> very adorable and having the story premise be about the life of snakes is pretty unique in itself. I'm curious about the ending though...I wonder if MC will reincarnate into a human again or if it turns out that the snake clans first used to be people...

Also, I haven't reached any smutty parts (can't believe someone wrote a yaoi about snakes lol) but snakes have two dicks so... cough cough... will the author know this? <<less

Hmm.... story wise it should be good if MC is not such a pain in the ass character. I found him ungrateful and selfish most of the time.

It was cute in the beginning but the more I read it the more I find him unbearable.

Anyway, it's easy to MTL

I have finished reading this and I have a lot of good things to say about this story. I MLT this and it's just a sweet story, were the MC died and becomes a snake. We see him grow up with his family and later on meet the ML who is a black, noble snake.

... more>>

All I can say is that the author made me enjoy reading how the MC and ML grew up and got married. There is a lot of funny seens fine the MC does not have the memory that snakes are born with, and you will also like it as well.

I recomend this story if you want to read about two snakes fall in love, protect there home from humans, and raise their own babies. <<less

Fluff lot of fluff. It's a really great story.. And I actually learn a lot of snakes activities from this. Yes I am very afraid of snakes. But.. If all snakes are like xiaoxiao I probably.. You know.. I probably doesn't mind living with one.

its just like when a person has caring family but takes it for granted o..o

but other side characters are cute and ML too >~<

... more>>

•i felt sad for lan yiyi he should have atleast told him, instwad od running away poor guy

•xia wu should be given more love

•MC should visit his parents and brothers more often (like he visits his frnds more than family)


my own hypothesis for MC being selfish and s*upid at times

‼️read at ur own risk😛

•its saaid in last chapters that MC ate the soul of the silver snake he possessed

•snakes in enchantment can only reincarnate as snakes again and soul will be lost if the enchantment is broken

• based on these two I think snakes soul should be stronger than our MC human soul (not mentioned anything about why MC reincarnated here) so when MC ate the soul snake soul (overeating souls might cause personality defects as both sould need time to merge ?like MC isnt a soul eater so some traits might be retained) character were engraved within him ?

•human selfishness + snakes selfishness = > selfishness jk like his human nature is lost cause of soul eating and became more apathic?

one more thing hes becoming lil less selfish as he gets pregnant (ik he kicked of his children after 5 years but still he could last till 5 years xD) im using chimera thingy here where offsprings eat mother after being born

as mc's soul is bloated he got pregnant early = my analysis here is

■it is mentioned that normally snakes who have s*x before becoming adults cant have children

●i take it as it takes time for reincarnated soul to merge with body and during their fertile period their soul is strong (strong enough even if lil power is distributed among the offsprings it wont effect either) and can give birth and can give birth only once (yeah other reason population check)

●as soul is weaker also body conditionsof snakes didnt reach adulthood having s*x it will disturb the process leading to no offsprings

■um so MC gets pregnant 4 times which decreases the bloated soul and is kinder than before (as its mentioned by ji zhao that MC looks happy to have more children <like if hes selfish he would hate that a lot and kill themz something >)

ik its s*upid analysis just wanted to tell my thoughts >~< thankx for reading !!

The story is mid tbh.

The plot is actually good, I enjoyed it especially since I like to read this kind of genre what I don't like is the lack of character development of the MC, It makes my blood boil and in my opinion the ML deserve someone better.

just because I don't like it doesn't mean you won't like it.

I did MTL, but from what I saw the translation is nice! if I were to describe this story in one word it would be: boring. look, I like easy readings and this definitely is, but it is not sweet at all!

the beginning caught me only because of the interactions between MC and his brothers, and also because of my expectations in ML. then, he appears and... well... MC is 100% tsundere so ML's dominating attitude is very favorable... more>> here, in general they get along well.

later, there is the back story about the tomb (which is in the title of the novel, but as it was only mentioned later I had already forgotten), but it didn't interest me at all, I just went through all these chapters. anyway, it's so boring that I can't even make it to the end.

I still read a few more chapters by MC and ML, but honestly neither captivated me, just dropping that

repeating: I didn't like it, but maybe you like <<less

Super cute story. The MC is really confusing, he's supposed to be a human reincarnated into a snake, but he seemed to forget immediately all his wisdom as human. Like, he's super childish and kinda annoying at times but I guess ML matched him well.

ML is such a nice snake husband. MC's snake family is also a cute and warm family. It's overall a fluffy story.

Anyway no need to think hard reading this novel. Lol.

This story is sweet and I would consider it a light read. There is not a lot of drama and the conflicts are solved within 2-3 chapters. If you want a story without the MC having revenge or trying to make the world better.

-1.5 Story wise there was lack of character development in MC which I'm usually not picky but in this case he hinders the story from becoming great. I feel bad when I see what MC is doing. He's less emotionally developed which makes the romance unrequited more... more>> than mutual love. The MC only how to take but not to give back he still regarding himself as superior and demand for human advantage. So he should understand the concept of giving and taking.

-1, Slowly everything began to feel shallow. Although the interactions did not feel forced as this is a romance novel I can only tolerate so much neglect. The plot was lacking even with the supposed 'little to no plot that most slice-of-life novels are able to pull off.

I enjoyed this novel because of the interactions between the other snakes. ML is such a nice snake husband which was not what I was expecting. ML very pampering although at first he was tsundere. It's mostly a slice of life and have a little drama.

I feel like if I gave this another name it would be: Adventures of Small Snake and Benevolent Snake. (Benevolent as in Tolerant) <<less

Tbh I really don't like MC ego... Especially his selfish personality. Welp, it's not that bad to be selfish but it can't be too much... Even taking advantage of ur love one. When u know they love u and doing as u plz without considering another feeling. In this novel, it talks about animals point of view. It's simple and straightforward but... It also Intelligent creatures that are cable of thinking and learning. So u consider that it is another intelligence race. So what I want to say they can... more>> be call the primitive ppl that is why I feel bad when I see what MC doing. And on the emotional part in my view it more like ML have unrequited love on MC, more than mutual love. That too selfies, he only how to take but not to give back. If he is the snake since birth it ok cuz it might be cuz of their nature but he not and he still regardsing himself and demand for human advantage. So he should understand the concept of giving and taking. So I give up after 100 chapters. I couldn't go on even tho only a few chapters away from the end. He too selfies for his own satisfied making things hard and trouble for everyone who loves him. This MC really give me bad taste in my mouth. Gove it 3 stars for the hardworking ML and his cute families. <<less

This is a cute story. The MC is annoying at parts but I like the side characters so much that I can look past it. There's not much of a plot, just a slice of life, but I really recommend it

This story is sweet and I would consider it a light read. There is not a lot of drama and the conflicts are solved within 2-3 chapters. The MC is pampered, spoiled and cute, so he does not do much, if you want a story with the MC having revenge or trying to make the world better.

I love the family aspect of it. The MC hatch out of an egg and have 5 brothers with him as the youngest, and two loving parents. In his previous life he was an... more>> orphan so the family made him happy. The male lead is the standard-take on all the responsibilities and pamper his wife type.

There is a backstory with why the snakes guard the tomb which is sad and touching. Overall the story is a good read with fluff. <<less

Overall it was very good.. cute and fluffy.. MC and ML are always a little childish.. and the children is very cute... I liked the supporting characters and other couples.. The story is well written and we will not feel bored. But some words and sometimes it has feeling something missing..I sometimes didn't quite understand it but after reading over and over or think about it for sometime we can naturally understand it..I really like it..
