Description

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

In the third year of the Kaihuang era, as the Great Sui began to unfold between the fall of the Northern Dynasties and the rise of the glorious Tang Dynasty, Emperor Yang Jian created the House of Blades – an intelligence agency for strategies and conspiracies – in preparation to unify the world.

On a snowy night, a convoy of tribute from the Kingdom of Khotan was raided. Not one soul survived the attack. Feng Xiao, Second Commandant of the House of Blades, was ordered by the Emperor to investigate the matter in person.

On the distant border, a storm brewed as major forces gathered from all sides in Liugong Town. The strong rubbed shoulders with the strong; the skilled crossed paths with the skilled.

Here, the ever-successful Second Commandant Feng ran into a wall for the first time – all because of a feeble Taoist priest with ailing health.

Some things would never be known if no fights were ever picked. Only through their skirmishes did Feng Xiao realise that this sick bastard seemed to have way more aliases and personas than he himself ever did.

I want to say that this novel is amazing! I began to read it because of a thousand autumns, but gradually I got distracted and did not even immediately remember that there was one author - these novels are very different (I love both!)

Not gonna deny, I'm sold when I knew this novel shares same universe with Thousand Autumns.

Plot is very intriguing. the murder case is just tip of icebergs, many things are hidden behind it. and full of conspiracies~
this one is a rare kind where many characters can switch sides easily, all according to their own interests and benefits. it's seen more often in seinen than yaoi tbh..

Now about CP... boy, they're so amusing. our dear CP here are actually from different bureaus, but have similar responsibilities. it's just one... more>> receives orders from Emperor directly, the other from Empress. so ofc, the fierce competitions ensued. the battles of wit between them are hilarious. I say that because basically none of them gets much advantages. it's always draw.

The shou is a sickly man. he has no martial arts, even wind can harm him easily. but his mental fortitude is the best. can endure any kind of test. also he has very wide knowledge, mostly politics and names of famous people. and is a very good strategist.

The gong is what I call in modern term; a metrosexual man. he puts much attention to appearance like changing clothes before fighting, etc. but he's also very shameless and has no real concern about dignity as long as he can get whatever he wants. he's a total narcissist. he's very confident in looks and martial arts. and God forbids, there is indeed not many people who can beat him. basically only the shou whom he regards as rival, not in martial arts, but in tactics and tricks.

I chuckled when both of them smile to each other but curses flying inside. the gong call the shou as 'dead fox'; granted the shou call him 'oleander swaying around', a beautiful and and very toxic flower. lmao. and indeed, till end they wouldn't stop bickering even though they care each other more than their own life. wtf guys...

Spoiler

there's part when they must work together to escort country's ambassador. shou suggests they should disguise themselves, which got approval from gong. but then he said that gong has too much appeal so he could attract enemies, he must decrease his handsomeness like dirtying face and hair, wear shabby clothes. as a clean freak, gong is very reluctant. then shou suggests another, if gong don't want to be dirty, he should disguise a woman. and OMG, gong accepts that readily, but he has one condition. he would disguise as woman but must be shou's wife. then shou regrets a bit coz his 'wife' never stops talking and make his head ache. wtf, these guys never stop.
I'm dead every time I read shou thinks gong's face is very beautiful, and perfect as long as he keeps his mouth shut. his talking destroys whatever beauty he has. and how gong always wonders why shou is very interesting though his behavior is too cold, his heart is as hard as steel, his mouth is very poisonous, his face is pale and sickly, his smile is never sincere, either it's sneer or smirk. but they're similarly willing to put their lives at stake for each other. omg yameroo.

[collapse]

Edit: I heard there'll be anime adaption for this by bilibili. I also check from JJWXC, yes it's true! OMG OMG 1000x <<less
