Ok this "review" is a bit overdue bUT I figured I had to update because my first one was from Book 2 and BOY, Lie Huo Jiao Chou would just get Better and Crazier and Feelsier from there.

Short review: Priest's writing shines even more with her latest novel, and could be even compared to how she beautifully wrote Can Ci Pin/Imperfections (personally, I do think she gets even better everytime !!) The plot is quickly engaging, the mystery and dynamics behind the characters are quick to pull... more>> you in, and you're bound to be in one hell of a ride.

To those who followed the daily updates, we are all aware of how Priest became increasingly busy towards the middle of the year, hence, the last book's plot seemed to progress too quickly/in a much faster rate. Nevertheless, she was still able to wrap up everything nicely, dealing with immediate problems and showing how the world moves forward after such a climatic event.

Aside from the main CP, there is a second CP that will be introduced by Book 3, and they were such a great addition to the whole story. They're not any less important than the main CP, and it's because of them that it's easier to understand main CP's later dynamics.

Everyone got what they deserved at the end. Everyone did. (Silent tears)

It's a Really Great Read!


I am following the daily release of Lie Huo Jiao Chou in jjwxc and am thoroughly enjoy priest's signature mind-blowing worldbuilding and plotting. There's so much mystery waiting to be unfolded in both the past timeline and the present era. As usual, it's a slow burn for the main CP, but it doesn't make the novel less enjoyable. In fact, because of this, we could focus on the plot and the other intricate storyline meshing with the main plot.

A very enjoyable read, priest is still as funny and as painful. Wishing this could be even longer than Imperfections *praying emoji* <<less
