Demon King/The Parting of the Orchid and Cang


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

After hatching endless plots and suffering innumerable hardships, the demons of the Demonic Realm finally managed to resurrect the Ancient Demon King.

The demons of the Demonic Realm had hoped that the Ancient Demon King would not only lead them in waging a war against the Heavenly Realm and enable them to lord their superiority over the Immortals, he would also ultimately gain control over the entire realm.

Gradually, however, they discovered that their thoughts were very, very wrong.

Whilst it is true that this Ancient Demon King still retains his aura of superiority and possesses unlimited powers, he…

He seems to be a mental case…

It’s alright even if he changes orders and does things in an incomprehensible way.

But what’s with his habit of muttering under his breath, nagging and conversing with himself the entire day!

Small Orchid: He’s not ill, he’s just despicable (贱jian)…can’t stand to see (见jian) people live a good life.

Dong Fang: I am only unable to endure seeing you live a good life.

Small Orchid: …

*T/N: The Chinese pronunciation for the word “despicable” is the same as the word “see” – thus, the author is trying to show that Small Orchid, while trying to scold Dong Fang, is also careful not to incur his wrath, which is why she tried to imbue another meaning into her sentence after scolding him.

What can I say, this author delivers on romance novels. Like her other novels, Sansheng, Zhao Yao, Mulberry Song and others. The main characters are Dong Fang Qing Cang and little Orchid. Dong Fang Qing Cang is the demon king, undying and unstoppable. No one know he want and what he's trying to do. On the other hand, who is little Orchid exactly? Hmmmmm.

This novel is extremely tragic to little orchid. All the little Orchid want is to safely and peacefully pass each day, but it seems like no one... more>> agree with that. Ever since she meets Dong Fang Qing Cang, everyone she meet is trying to kill her. Ironically, the only place where she can find any semblance of safety is beside Dong Fang Qing Cang, despite him being the most evil existence, despite him constantly scheming and plotting against her, despite him trying and almost succeed in killing her on several occasions.

How will the relationship between the two grows over time? Will they realize their love for each other on time?

This is a romance novel through and through, with a happy ending. Sansheng from the author's other novel will make a cameo, as the only living person who don't think the little Orchid should die. If you enjoyed 九鹭非香's other romance novels, you will also enjoy this one. <<less

The story revolves around the FL who was only a little flower demon. Like Jiu Lu Fei Xiang's works, most of the characters in the book are not human. You should probably read this if you're itching for:

1. Scheming (Like really, the MC and ML are literally at each other's throats most of the time)

2. No love triangles (At least, from what I've read with my amateur translating skills.)

3. Bickering couple (But until you read a certain part of the story, they really want each other dead. Haha.)... more>>

4. Handsome and powerful ML (Well, he IS the demon king after all.)

5. Series of misfortune around the FL (With no one to help her but herself, sometimes.)

6. FL constantly crying (in a comedic way)

If you don't like any of these, it's your choice to read it or not. But if you decide to read this, let me tell you that this story is actually quite funny and the dialogue leans on the comedic side. The FL doesn't have insane cheats, so she uses 'practical' methods (like barging into the ML's body, for instance) to get by. This is a story of a powerful, but indifferent ML and a weak, but stubborn FL, trying to bear each other's presence, since they only have one body atm. <<less

The characters develop so well! Applaud the author for this story. Funny, sweet but really... angsty. Don't read this if you don't like angst.

Some may consider the ML to be heartless or just scum but he IS the demon king.

The way they change for each other as they begun to develop really feels natural in its own way.

The little Orchid really makes me want to cry for what she has been through, she is scared of death and she does not really think ahead. (She is a flower-turned-human after all)... more>> However, that does not make her dumb, she still can figure out the plot the demon king hatches behind her back. She cries a lot, is pathetically weak but also strong in her own special way.

The Demon King, on the other hand, is downright cruel and evil... Definitely, something a demon king would behave like. He has no trouble being manipulative for his own needs and desires but he is willing to change thousands of years worth of obsession for the little Orchid. The way the author writes how he slowly changes was so realistic, not a random "I like her" moment but a feeling that grows and changes as they interact.

10/10 would buy the book after reading it. <<less

Honestly, it is still quite early to write a review, but I'll update later. First, I hate when female MCs are super emotional and don't bother to think ahead for themselves. I understand that they were raised to adhere to the strict and dubious standards to be a "proper lady". But it takes extreme stupidity to be more concerned with modesty than self-preservation. If I hadn't read Sansheng I wouldn't be willing to trust in the author and would drop this. Second, it's a bit difficult to tell from the... more>> summary, but there are two MCs: the Demon King and the Orchid Spirit. Given the title I'm pretty sure the romance will be between the two of them. However, both are sharing the Demon King's body, which makes this potential romance very strange. Expect this to be more on the comedic rather than the romantic side, so I'm willing to just enjoy the ride. <<less

This is really good, well even though I feel bad for the little orchid because the demon king always lie to her, but I can not blame him cause he just haven't know what love is.

And this is better than the novel 'wife is outrageous', in here their relationship less irritating, less stupid misunderstanding, and the grievance of the little orchid was pay off by demon king suffering.

Story 4/5, TL 3/5

The beginning was great! Lots of comedic relief and character build up! Love the unique 'situation' our two polar opposite MCs are being forced to endure together.

Mid story, I grew slightly frustrated at their development as true intentions are revealed. To be fair, I get that it is inevitable for plot progression and I saw it coming but I'm getting tired of the FL fumbling about getting dragged by the nose by the whims of others. It's an arc that I wished ended quicker.

All in all, the... more>> FL isn't my fave type of Protagonist. I prefer a stronger and more independent FL, but that would be changing the whole point of this story- The romantic pairing of a supposedly weak flower spirit with an ancient powerful demon king. Their huge power disparity is the crux. Have yet to finish the story, but I have good faith that the author will deliver a great twist and ending! <<less

Jiu Lu Fei Xiang's novels never fail to deliver stories that make me feel something, warming me up.

As in other stories, the novel starts light with a comical tone, getting melancholy and bitter sweet from the middle towards the ending. Both the ML and MC grow during their journey: the ML really slowly change his attitude towards the MC while the Little Orchid grows more confident and less naive. In the spoiler a short comment about the ending

... more>>

For me, the ML doesn't deserve the MC's love. From the beginning to almost the very end, he used her only as a tool for his goal to the point to cause her death.


In regards to the translation, honestly, it isn't so good as there are often grammatical errors and, sometimes during action scenes, the sentences flow strangely or confusingly so that it is difficult to follow. <<less

I love the translator for translating this. Just wanted to say that. The novel is great and funny by the way, it's sweet in its own way. It's funny because from beginning to end, the weak little orchid flower is irreverent to the great Demon King's power. Lol.
