Bestial Blade


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

In a world where strength is power and one’s worth is decided by birth, Chang An goes against the odds by learning the way of the saber.

He was born as a frail and sickly sub-beast, falling ill when exposed to even a little gust of wind, yet from a young age, he has always yearned to be strong like the beastman warriors. Everyone tells him that it’s impossible, and he himself nearly resigned to it as well. However, upon experiencing the death of a loved one, he learns that only by being strong can one be a master of their fate.

On the other hand, Hua Yi, the son of a Chief, is a beastman with silver marks. He is gifted with immense power and could rule over others if he so pleases. However, he finds himself to be different from the other beastmen. He has no desire to conquer, and inside he is softhearted. He would’ve liked to keep living a simple and carefree life, but after a betrayal from a family member, he is forced to grow up.

These two once innocent children are brought together by fate. Together, they navigate a cruel beastman world, and along the way, they learn more about life and themselves.

First I´d like to say a big thank you to the translator! It´s been a while since I found a nice plot. Only 4 chapters in and I´m liking it so far. We have now a general idea of the ML´s personality (which is quite refreshing) but MC is still a child so it´s unclear. This novel is gory, bloody and the setting is in ancient time where humans are divided by beasts/ sub beasts marks. The first chapter begins with a very cruel and bloody scene and the society... more>> MC is in is about the survival of the fittest. This author has produced many quality novels so I´m looking forward to this. I only hope MC won´t disappoint later character-wise. MC is a sub beast but I doubt he´ll be weak since this author doesnt write weak MC´s.

If you´re hesitating whether to read this or not, just give it a try, there aren´t many chapters yet anyways <<less

If you like stories with good writing, nuanced characters, slightly heavy plot and BL, this is for you.

Unlike most beastmen stories, this one isn't focused on the romance of an OP ML and his fluffy cute wifey.

It's about two broken young men who rely on each other's strengths to find happiness in an uncaring world.

It's setting is unique to what I've read in this genre. Not primitive. It's somewhere between primitive and medieval. Not quite ancient china/cultivation style, though there is some elements like that. You don't get the feeling... more>> that this is an alternate earth or some fantasy realm. It's a unique world with its own history and gods and legends.

And these two young men just live in it.

I really like it. And the translator is doing such a good job. Highly recommend. <<less

I'm in love with this novel.

I'm a recent convert to the Priest cult, and I'm here to stay.

It's a good one. It's very heavy though. I mean, I felt depressed after reading it. It's intriguing, complex and the characters are amazing. I guess it's because I read it right after Silent Reading and I liked that one better than this one because despite it being about psychopathic criminal cases, I was able to laugh. I thought this would be the same. I mean, I did laugh for a bit there but for the most parts, I still was in a fog. I think it's because the MC's... more>> feelings didn't click with me somehow. He's a very, very strong man and I'm but a lowly human. I felt awed by him as well as chagrined to some extent. So after finishing it I felt like I was so weak as a human. Don't get me wrong, the story is 5 stars. But my weak self introspected too much and felt too humbled. Like when you see the Milky Way belt in the sky and feel that you are such a small person? I felt like that. Damn it. I wasn't prepared for that. The last fight scene and the conclusion of the war... Oof. Priest Goddess, why do you have to make me realize my lowliness? Your character cast is so amazing. I'm not talking just about the MC & ML, even the villain was so crazily OP. Jesus. Silent knife. Just got me so thoroughly =.= Anyway, I prefer the other book only because I'm in denial about my lowliness. You'll know what I mean if you read it. The character isn't OP because of some golden finger. He's just got iron balls. The MC is so strong. I still can't believe it. He's so good. cries. Let me go crawl into a corner and draw circles for a bit.

The ML is amazing in his own right. He's a careful and clever little cutie. He was just born in too harsh of a place. I related with him way too much. cries And his reaction to the MC is very much like my own. He felt that he wasn't as good as the MC. And to have that self-awareness makes me like this ML a lot more. How many MLs in BL can admit to themselves that they are not as good as their lovers? Sure, the domineering ones do love them so. But do they respect them enough? I don't think so. So that's why I love the characters in Priest novels. This ML is so shameless. Oof. Well, I like them shameless~



Ok, most of my whining was because... takes a deep breath... The MC was a premature baby so he has cong**ital deficiency but he became the first sword master in the world through sheer determination.


I mean, the decisions he made throughout the story makes your hair raise. He's got such tough balls. Oh my God. I don't want to go into details even though it's spoilers but his character and his actions just makes you believe what so many novels fail to depict...One sword against an army. And he just did that for me. So I was in a fog for a while and rambled. Hahaha. But the last fight...I still have goosebumps.

MAJOR SPOILER: Read after finishing if you feel like. I just want to gush.


So, in the last fight... The villain wanted to take everyone down with him, but the MC just didn't have it and offed him with one sword strike. Hahaha. I felt like the villain must have sworn to the heavens. He made so many careful plans and was so vicious but still ended up dying to the MC's sword. He wanted to control his death. Even wanted to take everyone with him when he died but too bad. He met the MC. Hahaha. The villain was a person who wasn't happy and didn't want everyone else to be happy and just existed to harm everyone else. These kind of people exist in real life too. Ugh they're so annoying. Anyway, I'm glad he died the way he did.

The plot is amazing so are the characters as expected of the author. I'm a huge fan of BL but there are lots and lots of BL novels with plots and characters which made me strangle my phone to death. Only a few were memorable and Bestial Blade is definitely one among them.

It's a good read and those who haven't tried out novels with Beastmen characters, this is definitely one for you.

It's an interesting novel, but the tone is a bit too heavy for my current mood, so I dropped it after reading only a little bit. Will come back to read later!

Basic Premise: MC's (Chang An) tribe lost in a tribe war and, being naturally sickly, he was not expected survive. Surprisingly, however, he survived. He was taken away by a crippled survivor and went off to live elsewhere. Life is not easy because neither of them were able to transform into beasts, but thanks to the help of the... more>> kind-hearted ML (Hua Yi) they were able to eventually find a new home. The rest of the story follows the MC and the ML's road to survival in an extremely unkind environment. <<less

I like it so far. In love really! I spent 2 weeks seeking something I would like from the first page and would not drop it to the half of the book and this is IT! Don't get scared because of animalistic thing (personally I don't like it, but I gave it a try because of Priest 😇)

I couldn't finish this novel, the mtl is unreadable as hell. Great pity.

Anyway, the plot is solid. I enjoyed it. And I am a sucker for op MC. And for nearly dying MC. And here is BOTH. Bingo)

The romance part is sweet and hilarious, it was expected without a rush.

I should mention that the side characters are actually interesting to follow (and I hate side character's storyline in 90% of cases). They complement the plot we'll.
