Yan Suizhi, the young and accomplished dean of the interstellar Maze University’s law school, wakes up in a body that has been gene-modified to resemble that of a twenty-something-year-old. He had supposedly ‘died’ in a premeditated explosion a few months ago but someone had managed to save him. In his search for his saviour as well as his murderer, Yan Suizhi encounters his former student, Gu Yan, who is now a successful lawyer at Southcross Law Firm.

This is one of my favorite novels by Musuli! She's a wonderful writer who never fails in making my heart twinge. The CP dynamics are great as well. Even though Gu Yan appears to dislike Yan Suizhi at first, he actually doesn't! Don't be put off by it. They're actually quite sweet. They're also great people with the soft hearts and firm principles. Love them.

I just finished reading the raws and there are honestly... so many good things I can say about this novel (but I'll try to keep it short!). First off, Musuli's a wonderful writer and she somehow manages to write hilariously witty dialogue, heart-fluttering romance as well as deeply moving scenes that made me cry multiple times.

Also, there is so much... warmth to her characters and while none of them are 'perfect', there is also so much kindness and good in them that renews my faith in humanity. Yes, some of... more>> the characters have heart-breaking backstories but their tragedy doesn't define them, and it's their strength in spite of their struggles and their ability to love, to hope, and to believe in the good of others that truly moved me.

A quick list of things I enjoyed:

-Yan Suizhi and Gu Yan's bickering at the beginning was hilarious and Yan Suizhi continues to be hilarious throughout the novel. Comedy aside though, both characters are very mature and intelligent and the way they complemented each other while working together was fantastic.

-One of the most beautiful confession scenes I've ever read!! And plenty of lovely romantic moments afterwards too. While the romance is more like a warm cup of your favourite tea than flashy fireworks, there were still many moments where I had to take a pause just to process how profoundly they loved each other.

-Great plot and pacing - there are so many mysteries and cliffhangers I couldn't stop clicking on the next chapter. A lot of clues and foreshadowing are scattered throughout and the ending ties everything up very neatly. Despite the 'lawyer' in the title, the main characters are more like detectives and the majority of the story takes place outside the courtroom, so the story was anything but boring.

-So many wonderful side characters! It wasn't just the main characters that moved me to tears, Musuli really fleshes out the whole cast and I found myself rooting for all of them (and wishing she would write more about them).

If you're hesitant about starting this because 215 chapters seems daunting, I will be the first to admit that I'm not usually one for slow burn but let me tell you, the wait was SO worth. Highly recommend! <<less

Its already good so far and Im really curious about YS's saviour and killer, but there's still a long way to go with the translation. That's why Im gonna MTL this one while waiting for updates :)
