His name was Duan Ling. He used to be nothing more than an illegitimate child with humble beginnings. As a child he had his fill of neglect and torment until a mysterious man named Lang Junxia took him away from the Duans. Lang Junxia fed him, put him in school, and made him a new home. Lang Junxia told him that when the peach trees blossom his dad would come get him.

Then his dad really did come. He was far more impressive than Duan Ling imagined, far more dashing, far more omnipotent. It turned out that Duan Ling wasn’t a bastard whose paternal lineage was in question after all. In his veins flowed the most noble Han imperial blood, and the empire was supposed to belong to him.

But in troubled times, with the beacons of war lit in all four corners of the world, his dad said everyone had a destiny that befit them, and their destiny was the way of benevolent rule, that was why they could never remain content with their little corner of he world. They were destined … to carry the enmity of an invaded empire, to bear the pain of losing their homeland; to live as the self required.

Serious novel ahead. This novel includes heart wrenching moments and anxiety despite it's peaceful cover. If you want a good novel to get lost in this can do the trick. Now if you want harem packed, golden fingers, happy go lucky, fast pace all the time, look somewhere else, this ain't for you or maybe not for the mood you're in currently. Older audiences are probably more the market for this novel.

This was a good kinda serious. The affections of the characters are well and truly earned through the hard... more>> lives that they lead and these affections are even betrayed. It's a real struggle to know who to invest in and just like the main character you'll find it hard not to fully trust those you've grown very fond of. You'll grow attached to characters and than have to say goodbye to them too. Example of one?

daddy dearest

Spoiler, for those of you who hate getting attached to dieing characters like me, above (not that that tainted the novel for me, it's just that good).

When you get to the point that some of us novelupdate users get to, where you've treaded through countless novels and so much of it is tr*sh, you'll find a novel like this that you want to raise into the air for all to see and yell "this is the new king"... Yes, you have a Lion King moment... That's what this novel was for me. Look at this well written novel, especially when you've seen countless others on this site, and let it cleanse you. <<less

This novel is so good!

I like how the author focuses on building up the setting and the characters first before the romance. Shit, I even forgot this was a Yaoi in the first place.

Currently, I am up to the war scenes and HOLY SHIIT, it's mad interesting.

I can't believe Li JianHong died. I wasn't expecting it. I was hoping he would live to the end with his son. The fact that Duan Ling still believes his father is alive breaks my heart every time I see him thinking of it.

I wonder where everything will go from here.



It's not that bad and I like that Duan Ling is growing as a person. But man, that cute scene in C59 and the ending...

Also, I'm glad Duan Ling knows the truth about Li Jianhong.

But seriously wtf is Cai Yan playing. You who are not even the true prince want the throne? That's some huge balls right there. Why the f*ck is Lang Junxia helping him? Does he really think he can be saved when he lied about something so major?

I’m so loving this and so very grateful to the translator for his kindness sharing this with us. DUAN LING is a beautiful person - courageous and lovable. His time with his dad is memorable and refreshing. Their views on life is extraordinarily contagious. I am really grateful to able to enjoy and relish this journey together with them. I’m also Looking forward to get to know more about Lang Junxia too.

At first this novel did not really seem interesting to me, but oh how good it turned out to be.

This is one of the most interesting novels I've read so far. I like how even though the romance has been a bit lacking up to now (I'm sure it's coming) it is perfectly fine, because there is enough happening to keep your mind busy and entertained.
At some point it felt like I went on a life changing journey myself. This is the type of novel that will move you.
I definitely recommend reading this!

The story is pretty interesting. I say, everything is very well balance. The tears, the anticipation are worth it.

a little spoiled

I remember reading it at 20 chapters first, and I dropped it for a while because the early plot seems boring, add to it that I usually seen a story that reveals MC and ML at early stage; the confusion make my blood turn cold for some reasons. Then I start rereading it again, and it's madly good. The emotion in here on the story is very well put. It feels as if you're there.
