Hidden Assassin


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

One of the top expert killers, tired of endless assassinations and having survived a cruel and suppressed life, decided to escape the world’s strictest assassin organization.

A chance came during one of the nights when the organization was least prepared, and he fled. However, he discovered that the night he escaped was the night when the organization had sent out many experts and ability type users to capture a phoenix weakened by its rebirth. Eventually, when surrounded and knowing that his situation was hopeless, he desperately shot at the ability user blocking his way. This helped the phoenix break out of the encirclement and grant him his one and only wish – freedom.

The assassin’s soul was sent back to his ten year old self. He woke up at a point in time that would allow him to drastically change his fate – he killed the two assassins that picked him up and brought him to the organization.

Thus, he began a brand new life.

Two naive little girls and one experienced boy living together and filling their days with warm memories of childhood…

Title of the novel aroused my curiosity but as I was reading chapter after chapter thoughts but disgusted by MC personality like how he reacts only when some thing happened to someone. When he saved the foreign lady after she was about to be raped after saving them a month ago from dying while purposely ignoring them till then saying I want a ordinary life. So I felt this is a stupid novel don't know a about future development. Hope it's get better. At this 30 to 40 chapters are... more>> translated <<less

I recommend that one, truly a hidden gem. I avoided it because of a comment saying that there was extreme nationalism in there, but reading it, it's not true at all.


  • Amazing MC, like actually behaving like an assassin, and really low key, while being a good guy overall. He's also mature.
  • Well fleshed out setting, with interesting tidbits here and there.
  • It doesn't shy from s*x, even lesbian love. Quite rare in Chinese WN.
  • Non Chinese characters, even Japanese ones, are not written as some kind of devils.

  • Too many coincidences.
  • Some dumb young antagonists.

I have read this novel in its entirety perhaps twenty times.

Without a doubt, it is the best webnovel in China, perhaps even in the world. Angry Banana is a master of the pen, and his descriptive scenery is incredibly vivid. The emotional developments are full-bodied and lovely, and even though it is basically a harem it is rather well-justified.

But what shines most about it is the fact that the author poured his soul into this work. Through almost movie-like literary depiction, he paints a picture of '80s and '90s China... more>> in a nostalgic light. Furthermore it evokes feelings of childhood relationships, of friendship, of the passions and struggles of youth, and most of all the value of life and love. Its action scenes are fluid and moving, its dialogue both humorous and thought-provoking; it's a love letter, an epistle, an ode, and I enjoyed every moment of it.

That's not to say it doesn't have its flaws, but they are quite minor. Sometimes the flurry of words slip a little, and I see minor improvements that could have been made. Sometimes it feels just a little contrived (but only a minuscule amount, mind you!). For the most part, however, the talent and devotion exhibited in this book earns it my wholehearted approval, and I daresay it is much better than even a majority of published material -- not to say it wasn't published, because it was in Taiwan, after the conclusion of the story.

Yin Sha is both an overture and an eulogy. It crams in all the best things about life, from a colorful cast of supporting characters to a dramatic plot to a grab-basket chock full of surprising plot twists; culminating into a high-tempo, satisfying, and yet a little regretful ending, with crystallized memories that are almost tearful to behold.

It's a good book. Read it if you have the chance. I'd like to pick it up from Arvel Hurst, who clearly isn't doing any more on it, and frankly did not do even the opening chapters justice. Yin Sha is a book that really requires a lot of literary finesse to maneuver, and I prepare myself every day for a time which I know will come. <<less

The nine chapters are pretty interesting so far. I was surpised to find that this was not some self jerking mary sue story as most "go back into time to where I was a youth with adult mindset" stories. The MC plays it lowkey and tries to hide his skills. Which is all that has really been shown so far. Hope the chapters keep coming, and the story stays strong.

So far, the main character is being chased down by an organization, who he tries to escape from. As he tries to shoot one of the enemies which he failed to as they are more powerful and can be considered an elite. His bullet unknowingly saved a Phoenix who was at the weakest moment. The Phoenix granted the main character a chance to have freedom.

Usually, a main character in other stories would be a powerful character before their death. But, in this case, the main charactor is a lower rank... more>> assassin who is chased down by higher rank organizations. <<less

First time in a long while I started a book through this site and literally could not put it down. I'm pretty bummed that I am caught up to the newest translation, but it was good enough that I am posting this review. to be simple it's great. its not too unrealistic in terms of the mc's attitude, where he isn't rambo nor what many people call "beta". so far its very fast paced, & despite having s*xual content it doesn't turn into porn which is just amazing in my... more>> experience on this sight. the MC is likable, despite being a "reincarnated king of assassins" cliche he is anything but an edge-lord that makes you sigh in disappointment. I guess what I want to say is the author does a good job doing the most simple yet hardest thing that many stories on this site fail at, by making the characters feel relatively human & not like dolls who revolve around the MC.

This novel could still be considered wish fulfillment as the MC is described as a humble badass; gets bitches, slaps face (kinda), kills fools, & brushes the dust off his shoulders w/o a bragging once. though I am still in the beginning of the story so no set backs is kinda a given, but so far nothing close to the level of xianxia MC plot armor.

I normally don't post reviews but I am really enjoying the story, to the point I just spent 5-6 hours in a row on it, wasting my day, & am dying rn holding in a piss, but wnna hurry up and finish this review but gd dmnt typing fast on a phone is hard to fk up doin.

So yeah read it, its good despite being 4.1 stars (low-mid tier according to novel updates ratings) & im guessing its only that good cuz people who gave atg & mga 5 stars read & were bummed that there was no rape yet. but then again im the kind of guy who thinks people who have different preferences all go into this category called "sh*t taste". so if you dislike this novel then now you know you don't have taste as bad as mine. *gold star* hope this review lets people deterred by how stereotypical it appears enjoy this hidden gem ^.^ I hope you can swear in these reviews... I almost feel like spell checking... jk <<less

This novel is trash, the MC is a beta male that hides his abilities resulting in a tomboy girl sleeping with his supposed to be gf. They literally haven't gone to last base only because they are afraid their marriage prospects get ruined. Literally, he has to watch as another girl is violating her and has to walk away like a beta male MC I freaking hate this novel. Dropped

This novel is full of the People's Republic of China is the best, LEI FENG IS THE BEST!!! WOOOO...

"In England, people at the age of 13 and 14 are already having s*x."

"American is an uncivilised and barbaric country"

... more>> "What are you talking about, in America, people do drugs at 12, have s*x when they are 16"

This is literally what is stated multiple times in this novel, guess what guys the Assassination organisation his from, is based in Japan, get ready for some Japanese getting their ass kicked while you are tired of racism towards Americans get some racism towards the Japanese.

Also, be told how great and pure China is while America is just full of sluts. <<less
