After an explosion, You XiaoMo finds that he is now a probationary disciple of the TianXin sect. However, he is one with dubious potential, so just when he starts to adapt to his new circumstances, he receives a piece of bad news. If he is unable to produce the required result after half a year to become an official disciple of the TianXin sect, he would be driven out of the sect.

While You XiaoMo is going all out to make medicines and earn money, he runs into Ling Xiao. To his horror, he later discovers that Ling Xiao is really someone cloaked in human skin.

I have been a big fan of xianxia for a while, as well as BL. This was the first danmei novel that I jumped into, and I love it. I would say that while I enjoy most danmei that I read, this one has it's own category. I love the cultivation/levelling aspect of xianxia, and that sometimes gets left a bit by the wayside in BL (No real complaints here) so it's awesome to get more of that. It's also nice that there isn't a harem of any sort, but... more>> rather a devoted couple. Their interactions are quite fun and often sweet. I see a few reviews talking about the power difference being a negative, but I don't necessarily see it that way.

On one side you have

a super powerful emperor beast that has been alive for millenia

and on the other side you have a cute little bun who is 18 years old. I think it would be strange if there wasn't a steep power differential, especially when it comes to xianxia where might makes right. Despite being overbearing,

he totally dotes on Momo and would do anything to keep him safe and in his arms

. I understand that type of relationship is not everyone's cup of tea, but I would say that YXM definitely proves his worth on his own, and a certain LX reminds him that he's not all that great. A little humility isn't the worst thing

not that LX has any, but he's the perfect power top, which happens to appeal to me and, I think, many others


The translations are superb, the update speed is quick, and the story is delightful. I have no complaints, and if you're a huge fan of xianxia, this is definitely for you. If you like BL this is for you. If you aren't sure about BL, this is a good gateway. It mostly focuses on their relationship, and the *** is pretty easy to skip over if you want. But don't. <<less

This novel is awesome 💕 💕 💕 💕.

I binge read it when it have 200+ chaps superrrrr amazing.. The plot is superrr good and very well written.

The super awesome part of this novel is the way the MC lives his life like superrr smooth sailing without any big obstacles and without it being awkward or nonsense.

The MC life start like from level 0 to slowly and surely reach higher level in cultivation and other things really, MC have lots of luck, he never got hurt, or get really bad things... more>> happened to him since he have a guardian angel or should I said guardian beast..😘

The plot is awesome, the relationship between MC and ML like super great and romantic and funny and etc. Lol. The smut scenes, my my my it obviously NOT disappointed it's hot and just nose bleed, even tho it's not much, but just reading the story make you entertain enough. Superrr love it. 💖💖

The comments suggested that there was very little yaoi content or romance, with the story more focused on alchemy and perhaps adventure. I was totally excited since I dislike yaoi, but enjoy all the other things.

... Yeah the comment people lied. As you read it, you start thinking to yourself: Hey... this is starting to get a bit... gay.
Then you continue onwards, and although nothing major happens, you get the romance vibes from the MC and his new friend.
Then you go beyond that and the s*xual tension starts... more>> sky rocketing. You are just expecting an M/M scene, and every interaction has you thinking: Oh my god, it's totally going to happen. I should stop now, why am I not stopping now?!?!

And finally it happens, and you find yourself in shock. That just happened? I kind of liked it. Oh god, am I into yaoi now?

Like don't get me wrong, I absolutely despise yaoi, but this was very well done. I think the main selling point was that it was all very believable and nothing seemed forced. It doesn't really come as a surprise either, so you're constantly hanging onto your seat in anticipation. So ladies! If you ever want to introduce your terrified guy friends to the yaoi genre, you might want to get them started on this. It's a fun read with all the classical elements of a Xianxia novel, but with more emotional characters. <<less

Funny story, lovable YXM, cunning LX, their cute interactions, the storytelling and everything else makes it an amazing story. Those who feel itchy reading BL can read this without any problem for at least a 100 or so chapters I think?

(Edit: I think the name is a bit off, there is no need for "Master, " it should just be "The Legendary Wife, " though I could be wrong)

I do really like this novel, to the point where I’m willing to listen to google reading it to me. HOWEVER, I have a problem with the main pairing. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my yaoi and shounen ai, my problem has to do with their interaction with each other.

At chapter 392, their relationship is still so uneven. Everything... more>> has to go Ling Xiao’s way, the only time XiaoMo can do what he wants is when he doesn’t care. XiaoMo has to do or say what Ling Xiao wants him to do or say, otherwise he will get punished. His favorite way of punishing is on the bed. Even when it’s just for pleasure or for training, he doesn’t consider XiaoMo’s physical condition or the fact he is telling him to stop. XiaoMo also has to be careful who he hangs out with or says to other people, because Ling Xiao would get jealous. He is too controlling, and every single time XiaoMo has to go with what Ling Xiao wants, because he is afraid of some punishment. Yes, Ling Xiao pampers and protects him in other ways, but that isn’t a relationship where the two have an equal say or standing. Ling Xiao pampers and protects him because he wants to anyways, so it’s not like he is compromising, something he does not do.

Another thing, when Xiao Mo is with him, I can’t help but feel that the boy gets rather stupid. By himself or with other people, he’s quite smart, but when he is with Ling Xiao he can do/say some stupid things.

I’m not saying the two aren’t cute together, or that I they aren’t the OTP, but it still bugs me that they have such an unbalanced power relationship. If it wasn’t for that, I would have given 4 stars. At first I gave 5, because their uneven power-relathionship made sense in the beginning, but that continued even to chapter 392, so I changed it to 3. Hopefully it will change. <<less

I love this novel!! Absolutely topped the list among all of those wuxias, xianxias novels right now (my opinion but I may be biased, lol) . The only downside that I can find is that the chapter is too short. I love how the character develops in which they are not clichey, compared to most novels. Translated BL novels are uncommon while the good one is rare, and this novel is included in the rare kind. You will absolutely adore the MC and how he interacts with the other characters... more>> especially his 'husband'... the plot is kind of slow but it is compensated with character development, albeit not too much but considering the progress of the novel (ch.137), still quite good. <<less

Its 4 am.. And I'm crying, for goodness sake..

Its really interesting novel, with good story about cultivator life with Bl theme, the pace of story kinda slow in the begining but not really slow that make you want to skip going at the end of book (in the last chapters the pace feel rushed) , consistent character, [chapter above 200 there will be many many smut scene.. Although its not really explicit, the smut scene will always be smut scene/spoiler]

and I'm crying because its ended

I'm giving this a 3/5 because the title still has no relevancy whilst 100 chapters in. I'm really confused, I like the style of writing, and the BL kinda came outa nowhere for me since no one tagged it as such till recently (OR I WAS REALLY STUPID AND MISSED IT). I'm really questioning my s*xuality reading this, but the plot so gud tho I keep coming back.

The slow romance of this novel really touches me because it both focuses on the relationship of MC & ML and the story they go through. I don't mind that there aren't much of 'hot' scenes, which makes this story nice to me.

Slow when it comes to BL scenes and focuses more on the cultivation aspect at first.

Oh but they do flirt from time to time like hold hands, kiss, hide in their rooms to play with their *coughs* and are almost always inseparable.

They like to sneak out and the guy gives a lot of stuff to our diligent and treasure loving MC. If you read the Genius Doctor Black Belly Miss before, the male lead there is kinda similar to the lead here only he is not M.I.A. All the time... more>> cause he sticks around to protect You XiaoMo.

Basically like a sugar daddy and a sugar baby type of relations--- scratch that--- like HUSBAND AND WIFE! MC got this very wifey temperament: diligent, hard working, good with money, doesnt get mad easily oh but when he does, he knows how to use motherly tactics to make you do what he wants!

This was my first cultivation novel and I found it slow at first since I started this primarily for the YAOI tag but then the pills cultivation process of breaking through to the next level is very interesting!

Based from the comments, I heard the cherry popping scene is somewhere along the first few chapters of 300.

\ (^O^) / Updates became faster too! <<less

In terms of BL scenes, it is rather slow.

I mean I read 182 chapter and still main characters aren't having s*x.

For now everyting is more story based and I think this what makes this novel so good. I've become addicted to it. I can't wait to see progress between Ling Xiao and You XiaoMo

The story looks interesting and is quite different from anything else I've read, so at least for originality it gets 5/5. But a very big drawback, at least for me, is that the MC is the weak one, getting used by the other character. I really dislike weak main characters. Switching them would be enough to make this 4/5 at least.

The other issue is the plot holes so huge that you can drive a titanic through them:
... more>>

MC has his own space that he can go to at any time, but the one time Lin Xiao threatens to kill him, he completely forgets he has it; MC is the only one to realize that Lin Xiao is a double, even though he barely saw him before, while nobody else realizes it.

First off, I’m not into bl/yaoi.

That being said, before this series had the tag (which confounded many early adopters, myself definitely included) I read this series and found it to be very well written and equally well translated. Characters actually had their personalities, the main character actually felt like a person, and the story had great pacing and progression. What it also had was a very good sense of humor.

Considering the title, I had no clue it would turn out to be a bl, even assuming that Ling Xiao was... more>> actually a female in disguise. For story and characters alone, it is a great read (at least up until the tag lives up to its namesake). As for later on, depends on if you can get into it. Personally even though I loved the story, I can’t get much further into it. <<less

This is a cute and easy read. Compared to a lot other xianxia/xuanhuan novels, the romance is far smoother and natural, and the side characters are not just stepping stones/faceslapping targets.

You do need to have a relatively thick face to read this through the first ~200 chapters. Because the MC virtually can't oppose the ML and is pretending to be ordinary, low-talent disciple in front of everyone else, he comes across as kindhearted to the point of stupidity and so soft he might as well be spineless.

... more>>

... not that he really can oppose the ML now, but at least he does know the ML spoiled him rotten. Deep, deep, so deep in his heart it's only acknowledged once.


Another thing that I like from this novel is the very real feeling of being stranded in a foreign world with zero foreknowledge about it. From cultivation things to everyday life like financial condition, the MC basically has to learn everything about that world and cope with the differences compared to the modern world, and it's conveyed wonderfully without wall of texts filled with facts. <<less

A nice bl novel

As for why it was called legendary master's wife and why not the legendary wife or something. You'll understand when you read further...


Things will be revealed about the ML, how he bacame a legend and the most powerful in the story. This story is about both side's path becoming a legend... not just about MC.

This story is a "bang"! The author is really good in separating the genres of the story. Blending of the events seems really natural and not to forget that although Ling Xiao seems to be more in the limelight, You XiaoMo do also have his. This couple really is the best. They even overwhelmed the position of the best love team in my novel list. Hihihi. I didn't expect to read a very long Yaoi novel and never get bored with it. Amazing.

I've been reading this forever and just decided to write a review.

Our MC is You XiaoMo, or YXM as readers have simplified, who died and wakes up in the body of someone in a different world. The body's previous owner is a pill cultivating disciple of some sect who cried himself to death because of his poor talent in pill cultivation, which is based on soul force. But that was the previous body's soul, what about YXM's? At the same time, he discovers that martial student Ling Xiao is actually... more>> not human, and LX threatens YXM into making him pills to eat in return for not killing him for knowing his secret.

So what ensues is an interesting xuanhuan that isn't solely focused on romance and s*x. YXM focuses on pill cultivation and LX is... there. Though there isn't much intense drama in terms of who is going to win a fight, it's still fun learning about the world that YXM has ended up in through his interactions and reactions with LX.

While this is yaoi bl, it's not really super s*xual except for a few chapters about 100+ chapters in. Otherwise, it's just mildly bromantic. <<less

First time reading "Yaoi". Pretty much it's going to be the same as drewjn's review.

I saw this novel got really popular with a good ratings, but didn't take note of the genre "Yaoi" or "BL" as I don't see it in the Tag.

Though not knowing it's Yaoi, I enjoyed reading it up to Chapter 58 and notice the interactions are getting a bit gay. Anyways, It's really well written and I like how the story goes.

Too bad I absolutely dislike Yaoi, I tried to continue reading it but... more>> failed to.

Always thought that Ling Xiao is actually a female in disguise therefore I check the Genre, and found out it was a yaoi. Probably stopping this novel for now.

Would recommend it to those whom reads BL/Yaoi or perhaps wanna try it as the Yaoi doesn't seems to be too much into gay " as at Chapter 58". Perhaps a touch of it only.

Great story, great flow 5* from me. Though the Yaoi part = ( <<less

One of the few novels where you can take the 5* ratings seriously. See those couple of 1*’s? Those are people who instantly disregarded this novel because of the shounen AI tag (Which basically have 0 presence, besides the MC being teased a bit every once in a while and some cute stuff every 40 chapters.).

This is basically just another great Chinese style magic fantasy adventure novel (With the adventure still preparing for take off.) with some twists. The MC is transported into another body in another world and embarks... more>> on the path of a magus (Which is mostly alchemy/pill refining at the moment.), there’s some humans vs devils conspiracy stuff going on in the background, which will most likely be the focal point at some part of the story later.

Honestly, if you’ve read World of Cultivation then this novel has a lot of similarities. Just imagine that Pu Yao has possessed the body of another sect member and also has the occasional urge to cuddle a bit. <<less

An awesome novel (even for people that don't really like BL). There are a couple of MATURE scenes, but it's not too bad.

... more>>

I think they're pretty much together though, so that might change...


The MC is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. He feels really average in terms of personality and intelligence, which is realistic???

The side characters are awesome... maybe even better then the MC? *runs*

Brief moments of humor lol

Good translations. Fluffy contracted pets.

OP co-MC. You Xiaomo really hasn't done much by himself, but it seems...


there might be more action for him in the future? He's going to a school where he'll learn skills to use with his soulforce.

I'm giving this 3 stars. I adore the interaction between the leads. It's adorable but as some reviewers have pointed out, it is a very power unbalanced relationship. Even after years together (yes, I binge read the novel to the end), the MC is still jittery of Ling Xiao. In fact, they almost have a owner-pet relationship because Ling Xiao does what he wants and always gets his way.

... more>>

Plot-wise, it is action-packed, funny and well-paced with plenty of annoying cannon fodders who met satisfying ends but it feels aimless. It was arc after arc after arc where the MC and Ling Xiao gets rid of the arc's villain simply out of convenience or because the villain was annoying then they get stronger and stronger - because well. Why not? Good things simply happen to them; the Mary sue halo in this novel is strong. Admittedly, towards the last arc, hints/loose ends from earlier chapters were finally being addressed (e.g. Lin Xiao's past) and they had a clear goal to get rid of the final boss, but it wasn't for any meaningful reason like saving the world or even taking revenge. It was because the final boss hate the two leads and would come looking for them anyway.

The MC is also somewhat of a wuss. Yes, he is relatable like having somewhat modern principles about not butchering people casually or running away when the enemy is obviously too strong but he is really pushing it. It gets annoyingly formulaic whenever he f**ks up, accidentally offends a cannon fodder or does something really silly, then basically waits around for Ling Xiao to save his ass. So not only is he a chicken, he is also dumb. The first time it happened, it's cute and entertaining but by the fifth time, you just want to smack him silly. Overtime, the MC does develop as a character and become more independent but IMO, he still relies on Ling Xiao mindlessly (one can argue that maybe he is suffering from stockholm syndrome).


But having said all that, it was a great read what with introducing interesting characters, hilarious interactions, drama and fast-pace action. <<less
