Welp at first I thought I'll like it since the idea is intersting. But inventually I found that this story is dumb. The uke was really dumb to fall in love with the emperor who was HIS RAPIST. Whotf is the person who fall in love with hmtheir rapist? And how the emperor punish him is dumb. Excuse me but can you please give me an excuse to rape someone as a punishment? And the moral of the emperor, rape his waifu as a punishment in public just wtf dude?... more>> But I respect the emperor for making rational decision at some things such as keeping his concubines, even tho he love a male. Welp you know in chinase history its normal for emperor has so many concubines, and he still have many concubines and only bed them once for keeping his loyalty to his uke. Being an emperor is hard, especially when you have someoene you really love with ur heart. Being Empress doesnt mean you have to be loved by ur emperor. Tbh the royal family in chinese just choose the best candidate to be a decent empress for born the emperor's heir. And the emperor here trying his best to be a good emperor (even tho he failed at some things lol) while being a good (welp its still rodiculous to call him a goo lover but whatever) lover keeping his beloved wife safe.

The story is rodiculous and hillarious at the same time. The fact that it was ridiculous, it makes it hillarious (for me) <<less

This story was disappointing. It's really everything that takes place after the emperor beggs him to come back.

The topic of the emperor and the heram is just really upsetting and all to justify his cheating and double standards. I thought thing a were going to change and the emperor would devote himself and be faithful to cang but that was my wishful thinking.

He already had some kids before he met cang and the reasoning for sleeping with them once is so dumb. If that was the case, then he didn't... more>> need to sleep with them anymore after one of them had a kid.

The ending was upsetting and just made me mad and ruined the story for me. <<less

I think this novel is sick in one way and sad in another. It's hard to imagine one individual liking their rapist or even liking someone who had hurt them badly. The s*xual intimacy between the two were abnormal, force at most, hardcore, and have tons of blood. I don't know how Lu Cang lives through all that without medical intervention or medical issue down there.
Jing is someone who is selfish and spoil. I'm not sure how his parents raised him. Sounds like they spoil him. As an emperor he does what all emperor does, uses their power to indulge in pleasure even at other's expenses. Regardless of his out of earth beauty, I think he's a slut.
I can't understand Lu Cang. Jing has humiliates him, hurt him both emotionally and physically, cages him in the palace, isn't afraid to kill him at one point, and a cunning asshole who doesn't keep his words. His beauty is the only good thing about him. Despite of Jing's thousand and thousand of flaws, Lu Cang found something loveable about this crazy man who is more of a psycho than anybody alive in this book. Plus, the fact that Jing's at one point became afraid of his feeling toward Lu Cang. Lu Cang pays a very high price for this and was emotionally hurt while physically beaten. Regardless of how this relationship looks, Jing is emotionally unavailable and tend to stay that way. Even after he found Lu Cang and confesses his feeling, he never once thought of Lu Cang and the sh*t (yes, the sh*t) Lu Cang has to go through because of Jing's fear. Jing didn't apologize or when he was beating Lu Cang up or when he was raping Lu Cang in the jail cell had he experience fear because Lu Cang could die.

My review will be very much biased since this is my most favorite novel of all time. This story has all I want in it. Seemingly perfect but not so flawless Emperor. Seemingly reckless but actually naive bandit. The dynamic between these two is the most commendable for this story. And Of COURSE, the great plot with pretty males. XD

If there are ten stars for this, I definitely will rate this story as perfect story that deserved the 10 stars. XD

I dont know why this has so much good review. I dont think I have ever been more apalled by a manga or light novel.

... more>>

The way jing treated lu cang is absolutely unforgivable. And I find it vile that lu cang actually forgave jing just like that. The only reason I persisted reading this is because I was hoping in my heart lu cang will seek vengeance even though I know that's not going to happen. I honestly would have rather killed myself in front of jing just to show how disgusted I am. And it's even beyond my comprehension how lu cang could have even felt a tiny bit of emotion towards jing aside from hate, much less actually love him.


Overall, the reason why I dont like this is because I refuse to chip what little bit of humanity left I have in me. For me, liking this novel means accepting rape and torture, which will never be even at least borderline "okay". Most people think it has a good plot, I dont really think so, the plot is mediocre at best for me. There isn't any twist or shocking revelation. IMO, the tragedy of the novel overpowers the actual content and plot. There are plenty of other novel that exceeds this and without the mental and pyschological trauma it brings to the readers. <<less

Too SM for my taste. Beside that, I think

Lu Cang forgave too easily. He struggled, true, but gave in after just one kneel from the other.

Rather disappointed about that

The storyline is awesome. This is my first yaoi and surprisingly a good read.

The MC is funny, naive and an wholesome man. However the ML is one sadistic beast. I don't really condone his actions. Raping the MC and his uncle. Very dark and yukky.

... hardcore xD

that's it in one word. uhm, basically, this novel is Not Safe For Work, Not Safe For Home, and almost Unsafe For Everywhere xD maybe a closet would be safe... or an underground bunker.

i've been reading so many lovely and cute and nice bl manga and fics that I almost forgot this kind of yaoi also existed. so if you are starting into yaoi, save this for later. MUCH later.

... more>> leaving an alternative summary, because I think the other is a bit misleading.

"Much to the despair of his sworn brothers, Lu Cang, the young and famous leader of a mountain bandit gang, is still single. They kidnap beautiful women for him, but he always rejects them for not being perfect enough, until they bring one particularly stunning beauty who steals Lu Cang's heart at a glance.

Unknown to Lu Cang, this meeting will teach him the meaning of pain and despair, and will test the limits of both his pride as a wulin practitioner and his pride as a man."

basically the story contains violence, blooood (i think only the later chapters don't contain blood x'D), torture, rape, foul language, and... it even made me cringe a few times. but it still will make you read until the end.

The story IS good, and contains a couple of 'wait, what?' plot twists. i'd rate it 5 if not because I think there are a couple of inconsistences with Jing's character, which is a serious flaw imho. this flaw should make rate this 3.

so 3+5= 4.

enjoy your hardcor- erm, I mean, your read! <<less

Not bad but...


I don’t like the emperor. Selfish, egoistic, and self-centered.

LC is not bad but he forgave the sh*t easily.

I love the hard core Yaoi and S and M for this but I didn’t sign up for heart breaking sh*t the emperor does to LC! Ugh.

also, he (emperor) rapes his uncle while PC is there like WTF?! Insensitive to the point I think that the emperor has mental illness.

Seriously.. Even if this novel has an interesting story plot for me, I still hate it.

MC is a nice and lovely, ML is an asshole, not worthy to be loved by MC.

I read several ancient kingdom BL but this ML is the worst above worst.

But this is also quite reasonable. In the real life, unequally love can be happened between couple.

Read it if you like sadistic, cruel and selfish ML.

MC is the only reason I read it until the end. I love his char

Sadistic lover. A devil with the face of an angel.
A twisted romance of brutal and dysfunctional relationship. Be ready for multiple stab wounds on your poor heart.

This book left a bitter aftertaste. Yet I am appreciative of the author's skill at manipulating the fragile human heart. I am also grateful for the author's effort to keep the story real. So real, it left an indelible mark on my mind. To me this meant the author is successful in his/her work since their main aim should be to grasp the... more>> reader's mind and mold it to their own desired shape. A book that is able to control the psyche of its reader is a winner. That's how I see it. And this book had subjected me to various onslaught of intense emotions of amusement, joy, fear, anger, sadness, disgust, frustration, anticipation, surprise, expectation and last but not least love. Yes, love even-though this is a very brutal romance story which I had nearly lost hope of finding a flicker of romance within its pages. Some might reject the ideal of romance in this story due to Jing's (seme/antagonist) violent and selfish way of pursuing love and also Lu Cang's (uke/protagonist) seemingly masochist acceptance of abuse from his lover. To be fair, I too could not exactly shake off the possibility of Stockholm Syndrome in play as I did find it hard to see how Lu Cang as broken as a battered rag doll could ever find in his heart to forgive Jing's incessant cruelty upon this mind and body. Nevertheless how ever twisted their love is, love is still the catalyst of their tragedious joining. Sigh such highly dysfunctional relationship this pair has. I am still worried for Lu Cang's future even upon finishing the book. Afterall, to serve the king is like accompanying a tiger. (famous Chinese proverb).

The version I read was in Chinese Text via TTS (text-to-speech). For the record, I have also read the manga adaptation up to volume no. 5 and am keen on reading its next installment. The artwork is not bad and so far the story sticks with the original novel.

I might be biased because I'm greatly attached to this novel, firstly because I first saw/read its manhua version and after years of no updates I was so sad that I had read it like for god knows how many times ff then I saw it's novel version and I can't help the happines and then read it straight to the ending. Though until now I'm still looking forward to the manhua english trans update.

yes I love this novel but the endinf not so much, I mean I think Lu Cang forgave Jing so easily and the ending was a bit rushed imo.


also check out the account of that latest translator Luxuifer, I swear her fanfics are so nice that I almost forgot the MLs psychotic mind. <<less

I love the characters, been binge read any other work of Chinese historical bl, I came across this one and become one of my favorite. The beginning of book 1 really showed how Jing forced himself upon Lu Cang, and LC developed Stockholm Syndrome tendency, but as the story gradually unfold, it was Jing that later make me vommitting blood of his cheesiness. I also love how strong character LC is, a true tsundere, and though he got deceived so many times to surrender to Jing, but he himself rarely... more>> leave his principle. I love that Jing is god like in everything that he does, leaves no weakness though he love his LC so much. I love that the personality did not differ so much from beginning to end. I came across this story only to love it. I give it 5 star! <<less

I wasn’t going to write a review but I find it so disturbing that so many people gave this novel high ratings. I had to put my two cents into this.

It was rape over rape and I skimmed through a lot just so I knew what happened in the end. How people could enjoy this was beyond me. ML went way overboard dark and mysterious love interest. He was just a disgusting sick person.

Even as a reader, I couldn’t get over how ML treated the MC. I totally DID NOT get how he learned to love the psycho in the end. I have no word for this.


Please people, do not encourage this kind of rape culture. How ML treated MC was wrong on so many levels. Please do not find this kind of behaviors romantic. This is way beyond dark and sadistic. Apart from physical violence, the emotional abuse he put on MC was so revolting. I just. This is so upsetting that I don’t even have the energy/words to rant about this problem.

So I just finished reading it a while ago and I am not gonna lie...i really hated both the main characters. The ML is a selfish, heartless, prideful, useless, (literally every bad word in the world) son of a bitch. The MC has no damm self respect. The ML rapes, tortures, humiliates (literally does all things bad) to the MC. Even in the end, he never apologized for his behaviour. The only thing ML has going for him is his beauty, other then that, there is literally nothing likeable about him. Also the MC is literally the dumbest person I have ever seen, dumber then the most useless and unlikeable shoujo manga heroine. He doesn't have even an ounce of self respect. Even after going through so many emotional and physical tortures, he still likes the ML. Why?? Just why? Because he is beautiful? Like aarrgghh...I honestly wanted to go inside the book and give the MC a tight slap to open his eyes. After going through so much torture for so long, the MC literally forgives the ML cause he kneels once.... once? I was like bitch, you were treated like a f**king dog, caged, raped, tortured, humiliated, beaten, hurt physicall/mentally/emotionally (need I go on...) and yet you forgave him cause he kneeled just once? once? uggh... like I can't even with the stupid mc😒

I don't even know how I finished this novel. I was literally crying after seeing the treatment the poor dumb MC was getting.

It had great reviews and is so popular so I thought I would like it. But my heart still aches so much after reading it. I have never hated a character more then the ML. These type of books just isn't for me. I still can't get over how cruel the ML was.

I'm pretty sure that this "love" that the MC has for the ML is like Stockholm Syndrome. He's unable to return to his home and friends because of the poison inflicted on him by the ML, ends up staying at the ML's place because of lack of money, then tricked again to be forced to be at the ML's side as a guard. Throughout this he's brutally raped over and over again. The MC even realizes this once he sees the ML raping his uncle, that the MC's own "love" was a coping mechanism for all of the rape.


The plot is decent, even if all of the s*x scenes are messed up and I really wished


it had a different ending and Lu Cang didn't end up with Jing.


I didn't like the MC much in the beginning, but I ended up reading the entire novel just to see if

he'd finally be able to escape from the ML

No holds barred right from the get go. This king shows no mercy. If you're a softie maybe don't read this. It is descriptively brutal in parts and funny in a cringeworthy way in others.

I would have given it 4 stars if it hadn't dragged on in parts and if the world was more fleshed out. As it is I'd say it's a solid 3 stars.

And yes I read it because of the cover art. Kept reading because of the great translation and notes. Stopped when the ML character failed... more>> to develop. Essentially he never really stops feeling like a side character despite being in every chapter with lots of screen time. Kind off reminds me of Bringing the Nation's Husband Home.

On a side note it's amusing to me the reviews that decry Lu Cang's treatment. I feel that they are forgetting that Lu Cang isn't a heroic character to begin with. He's a bandit that leads his men to rape and pillage. I say he's just getting his just "desserts".

And another side note

How does our MC maintain a functioning butthole after enduring all that rough trauma. Leakage everywhere is what I'm thinking.

I don't know what to say. The abuse and s*x didn't really affected me, the one that affected me a lot is how poor my darling Lu Cang is under that crazy psycho's hand. That last part where that sh*tty emperor said he, the emperor was the only one allowed to have children and that he'll forever be childless kills me. My poor Cang ;_: I want to rate 1 just because of that but I'll put my emotion aside and I'll not rate.

Well... if you don't like hardcore bl (even more on an emotional level >.> you are gonna get abused <.<) run away immediately or you are gonna be marked forever!

This novel is not for the weak minded, who want fluffiness, blushing, awing, cute bl!

There's lots of angst, lots of tears to cry, and mostly lots of curses to shout at the ml!!

This is a roller coaster of emotions, if you have began you have to finish, because you can't simply suffer as a dog (oh damn poor dog...) and still... more>> not get your sweet reward at the end!

Ah but after all that suffering you reach the happy ending and fully enjoy it! (though I still would want to torture the ML more <.< it has influenced me badly...)

But lets be honest the ML was damn sick, sick, sick got to make our poor uke a statue for making him fall for him and return him back to humans standard!

Anyway it's worth reading if you don't have a frail heart ;) <<less

This was one of the more memorable BL novels. That said, this novel is not for everyone - or most people for that matter. There are heavy S/M and rape scenes that can be off-putting to many audiences. I personally found them to be a bit over the top and extremely uncomfortable at times.

However, the novel itself is well written and interesting. The characters are pretty unique in that the MC has the build of of a typical Gong but is actually the Shou. However, as typical Chinese... more>> BL novel go, the Shou is a bit whiny and has no spine. However, as far as personalities go, it's a lot better than most novels in its genre.

I gave an extra star to this novel because the characters actually switch positions. I find it unrealistic in BL that 2 men who are married to each other would have predefined roles and never switch. Their personalities and the slowly learned willingness to accommodate each other is definitely a big plus. Another core reasons this novel is outstanding is because the translation quality of this novel is phenomenal. Unlike most BL novel translations where the translator either uses MTL as a crutch or have no prior knowledge of Chinese culture, the translators of this novel are well versed in both English and Chinese. They also have written several FF for this novel, so their English writing is relatively refined. <<less

One of the stories where you either like it or hate it. I came here for the smut, but was pleasantly surprised to find a semblance of plot thrown in. However, I felt like it was thrown in a little too late.

... more>>

I feel like Lu Cang liked Jin's face too much to justify forgiving Jin for everything he did, but I was impressed at the scene where Jin broke down and cried while clinging to Lu Cang. I was also surprised that Jin let Lu Cang poke his chrysanthemum in the end. It was a bit repetitive with Lu Cang leaving and Jin going to get him twice, but I guess that shows how much Jin loved Lu Cang......?

My very first bl novel by a Chinese author, so at first I found it very Sadistic. Too much blood (especially since the manga has all of those graphic rape pictures). But as the story process I came to fall in love with X Lu and Jing. But it was really saddening in the middle, or climax of the story. But at least they have a happy ending and I'm just happy for X Lu. And with reading the Fan fiction by Luxiufer I came to love the story and... more>> happy that this story was brought into life. You won't regret reading this amazingly sadistic love story between a king and a bandit king. <<less
