Ever since he was little, Xi Jia’s yin energy was strong, and every day he saw ghosts and ran into ghosts. One day, he accidentally broke the protection amulet. Celestial Master Ye Jingzhi happened to pass by and helped. Are ghost catching Celestial Masters all legit masters? WeChat official accounts, Taobao online shops, looking at gossip tabloids every day. Since then, Xi Jia has refreshed the lower limit again and again, and met a group of completely unreliable Celestial Masters. Binding spirits, doppelgängers, the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, the ghost market of Poyang… The door to a new world is slowly opening.

Set in an urban city with supernatural elements, this is a love story between Xi Jia, who has a body of extreme yin, and Celestial Master Ye Jingzhi, nicknamed the King of Hell. The seemingly weak Xi Jia, in actuality, can rip apart ghosts with bare hands; the seemingly cold Ye Jingzhi, in actuality, is shy and gentle. A marriage contract binds the fate of two people together. See how the two people overturn the heavens in the gossipy and wacky metaphysical world.

Very good. Unusual relationship between MC and ML. Quite refreshing and the characters are lovely.

Expectation: murders, mysteries, gore, supernatural, ghosts, deaths.


Ok, that's exaggeration on my part. tbh, I expect some gruesome things, thanks to my experiences with JP mysteries (totally my thing lmao). but this novel....... well not that bad. there's still some things that make me lose appetite, but most of time they're just okay, not too appalling, horrid enough for readers as it's supposed to be supernatural. just some cases are bit anti-climatic. this kind of supernatural-case story is really my fave.

the couple is very cute,... more>> totally, just a bit awkward coz both of them used to be alone for a long time. MC is not a weakling. he can really hit when it's needed. The ML tho... he is very kind in true sense, well mostly toward MC. rather than stoic, he's just awkward and doesn't know how to express himself. a real treat when many MLs are sick bastards or cold tyrants. honestly, I'm tired of those MLs. this ML... is too pure for this world. we don't deserve him at all. only MC deserves him #shot

A very good, heartwarming romance


The ML, he's cinnamon roll. He is so good that sometimes, I feel distressed for him.

The MC and ML are somewhat different from the usual role settings. The ML (gong) is the good housewife with nearly unmatched culinary power. The MC (shou) is the overbearing iron claws that can make ghosts regret their deaths. Together, they are THE power couple.

What makes me laugh is that the MC expect the ML to be a 'dog' in bed, but in fact, the ML is a 'wolf'.

This was the first novel by this author I read. It has a slow start, but I liked it enough to give “Earth Online” a try (which I now adore). At first I didn’t like this story as much as EO, but I now can’t think of this ML as anything but BEST BOY. He’s so kind, gentle, and adorkable, my absolute favorite type both in fiction and RL. (See Anra7777’s husband.) Both ML and MC are just as badass as the MC and ML in EO, and I can’t... more>> wait for the next chapter! (Why, oh, why, aren’t more MLs like this?? *Wail*) <<less

Characters : 5/5stars

The shou personality MC = 10/5stars!

The gong personality ML = 8/5stars!

... more>> Theme = is cliche actually, but when you add it with a splash of modern hi tech and bl = 4stars.

Plot development = very good, the frustrating is I wannnnnt moooooooar XD

Translation= 5/5stars

MC is not your usual the popular, cutie dependent shou type. He is the opposite! He can think! He can fight! (even better than ML) Did I say he can think BY himself?! He can make decision without anyone or especially ML to help. He can rationalize! He's no white or red or gray or whatever lotus there is. He is ruthless to those that wrong him, whether it's ghost or human! He has cat too!

ML is.... imagine Lan Wang Ji type in modern world, the super model student with cuteness and super innocent too! He will follow whatever wife tells him, and do whatever wife asks him eve when it'll break rules and all hell XD <<less

Holy crap, when reading this, be ready for three things:

  • Occassionally shocking ghost stories and encounters
  • Lots of rofl's (best to not drink too much water lest you piss your pants laughing)
  • Being force-fed mouthful after mouthful of dog food
On the the MC & ML:

... more>>

Honestly, our MC is so hilariously OP at times despite not looking the part and our ML? So pure and innocent~ so precious! Gosh you just want to keep him in the palm of your hand and protect that pure being from being dirtied by the world lol


But honestly, I think you won't regret reading this because it's fast paced enough that you won't get bored, and those daoists and ghosts will give you plenty of entertainment along the way lol <<less

I love it. It started out pretty chill then it got more interesting as the story progressed!

The MC can beat ghosts up with his fists. Due to his abundant yin energy, he's a ghost magnet. Reminds me of Natsume Yuujinchou. (*´∇`*)

Fiancé? Engaged?!! ML spoils MC. MC is confused

I truly enjoyed this novel - light and funny! This ML is the purest I've encountered in the many novels I've come across. Fluffy fluffy fluff fluff and so interesting to boot!

... more>>

The ML, I mean really, he is so~~~ PURE (of heart and mind, though they do papapa, he's just the purest cinnamon roll everrrrr). The ML's eccentric master has a lot to do with how pure and GOOD he is. The MC is just so bada$$ and it's hilarious how the ML thinks he's weak and helpless in the beginning. From the time ML finds out MC is his fiance, he treats him and treasures him as a wife, right from the start, no questions asked. AH! He's so precious! Can you tell I just wanna put ML in my pocket?


I am very glad to have read this novel and will certainly pick it up (figuratively) again in the future. <<less

I think it's a good light-hearted read, and will suit those who like this type of supernatural comedy. The writing itself is okay with some witty sentences. So far episodic arcs and doesn't seem to have much seriousness to it.

As a previous review mentioned, I too, am not very fond of the type of humor used in this. Considering the 'horror' element, compared to other supernatural themed Trapped in an Infinite Chamber, Kaleidoscope of Death, or even Guardian, this one just isn't as exciting. Whenever a moment that could be... more>> somewhat tense comes up it literally gets blown away by overpowered MC or ML and falls flat that way.

I sort of cringe from the 'ghosts know' gossip and not entertained by the ML not knowing the MC can defend himself perfectly. I don't mind that he's cute but the draw on misunderstanding part is just a little bleh to me. For the part that I've read it's essentially 'MC runs into this supernatural thing and is perfectly okay b/c he's OP.' then 'ML comes in last minute to 'protect' and 'save' him, or apologize and feel bad that MC was 'scared' or 'in danger'. In general I've tired of comedic misunderstandings, so if you like that sort of thing you might like it.

I like the side character Pei Yu or whatever, who was sort of silly and shameless, but most of the side characters are like that so he doesn't stand out much. I think I'll wait for a bunch of chapters to crop up, then might skim through it if I feel like it. <<less

I like these dorks so much, the ML is this kind of tall rich handsome OP guy but is actually a very sweet and purehearted awkward potato. Now I know we got that kind of ML all the time, but the author justified his action and his awkwardness pretty well based on ML's childhood.

He's not neurotic and a downright sicko like most MLs are, he regarded his ridiculous master's words as law and treated MC with utmost concern and asked for his consent on almost everything.

And the MC balanced him... more>> well, being this strong one punch man kinda guy (on ghosts) and more outspoken than ML (albeit kinda awkward too).

They are practically oozing pink bubble first love aura that you just kinda want to take them and nurture them for good. <<less

One of the best BL novel ever.

This novel is super sweet even though the romance is slow but their moments are just gonna making you have toothache lol.

Both MC and ML are very devoted to each other especially how ML is like 'as long as Wife wants, must follow'

I cant wait to read this novel till end.

The translation is also very nice and easy to understand.

The setting and feel resembles Cultivation Chat Group, except with BL romance. There's the same sort of moe gap cutesiness and humor with supposedly reverent and powerful figures.


My favorite is Qin Shihuang being a tsundere who can't seem to pick up math and physics.

Not sure if it's because it's just the beginning or if the whole story is like this, but I really wouldn't call it all that horrifying. The comedic undertone is really strong in this, it's more like satire? I don't know how to define it to be honest. Yes, there are some pretty gory descriptions of ghosts and malicious spirits, but there's no tension you usually feel in horror stories. Both the MC and ML are strong enough to defeat or hold back the ghosts for long enough for reinforcements... more>> to arrive, the ghosts are such a small threat it's bemusing. Perhaps it'd be more appropriate to call this comedy with a horrific undertone? But the story is more focused on romance than comedy. Comedic romance with horrific undertone? Plot driven comedic romance with horrific undertone? Horror plot driven comedic romance? Something like that.

It's not a bad thing, but the humor and warm feelings tend to overpower the fear and anxiety so adjust your expectations and just enjoy the story is my advice.

That said, I can't say I personally love this story. I definitely enjoyed reading this but the comedy aspect is something I rather dislike. I'm not an expert but if I had to say, the comedy comes from the Xuanxue's, that is the ghost hunters or Celestial Masters society's, frankly disgusting lack of personal privacy. The characters in story don't really care about it but I really freaking hate it because I personally value privacy very highly. Especially because, as of chapter 23, our MC is not even part of the ghost hunting community or even wants to be. He just wants to be a normal freaking person. The whole thing is so over the top sometimes and I just can not. Care. Less. About those gossiping old geezers or those incompetent af younger generation. I would so much, much, much rather read about our adorable af ML wooing our lovely af MC and their awesome freaking ghost slaying skills. Honestly. Fellow user Victuuri Road said that this story reminded them of Natsume Yuujinchou and I'm just like, seriously hoping over here. Ugh. <<less

The plot could be better but the characters are all great, especially MC and ML. The side characters have great comedic value, whereas MC and ML give out lots of pink bubbles with their super cute, fluffy romance.

I like how MC surprises us each time, by proving how strong he is. And ML isn't the usual cold, aloof type. He's probably the sweetest ML ever - innocent, loyal and willing to do anything for MC. The romance definitely steals the show. The suspense/mystery on the other hand, is rather lacking.... more>> I would give this a 4.5 but I've rounded it down because I would've liked to see more of them as a mystery-solving duo. <<less

The story is very heartwarming with lots of fluff and ghosts in it. The story has a strong MC and ML with the ML thinking that the MC is weak to ghost when he can beat them up with a punch. The ML is soo adorable, especially his thoughts on his wifey.

Can't wait for the next chapter.

The novel and the translations are very good. I'm really enjoying the read. The author makes you care about the side characters, you get really invested in what's going on. There's a lot of humor and interesting plot outside of the official romance.

It's an interesting change up of the dynamic between MC and ML while it's not a complete 180* turn it is a nice new area to explore.

pretty fun.

don't read it for the horror because that's not the main focus. I haven't found it very scary but there is a bit of gore now and then. Lots of comedy and the ML reminds me of the frozen-on-the-outside-meng-on-the-inside ML from Superstar Aspirations a bit. He got the whole paralyzed face and inability to speak thing going on but he doesn't have God Q's tells. His insistent belief that the MC is weak despite the evidence of his own eyes is funny (at first) and he really is a... more>> domestic god, (or would that be domestic demon king in his case?). So far so good, can't wait to read more. I'm pretty burnt out on the "pure" trait so I find it aggravating rather than cute, whether it's the MC or ML doesn't matter. on a complete side note, I really don't get the cover art here; makes it seem like this is a depressing story with a suicidal MC which is far from the truth. <<less
