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.

Wow. This novel is great! Funny and extremely entertaining with fewer annoying villains than other books. Pill making, naive, guileless, low key and adaptable main character... at first. Ha ha. Then became slightly petty and slightly greedy but still quite naive. I really like the main character. He feels more real.

It's so hard to explain just how wonderful this novel is. It's one of my two most favorite BL novels (the other one is Mo Dao Zu Shi aka Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation). The Legendary Master's Wife is reeeaaaallyyyyy long but don't let that intimidate you. The story is very engaging and never boring. Yin Ya did such a good job with the arcs so even if the translation is not yet finished, you would still get a good grasp of You XiaoMo's and Ling Xiao's adventures.

It is an interesting... more>> adventure novel but it's also very much a yaoi book. The love story is a slow burn and very organic, there was no insta-love. Their gradual connection and affection was so perfect and the way they dealt with it is hilarious--I rolled over my bed laughing while reading some parts. Even after the confession and start of their relationship, the romance still retained its excitement and didn't get monotonous unlike other danmei novels. IMO, it got even more better as they grew as a couple. It's evident that they're both perfectly made for each other and it's a joy to read about them.

The characterization is also excellent. You XiaoMo and Ling Xiao are both memorable and the side characters are well fleshed out. The cultivation aspect was also very well done. It's complex and compelling.

It may seem like my review is over the top but it's only because the novel really is that good. I wish I could say more but I'm running out of compliments. Read it! <<less

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

(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

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?

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

I see a lot of people confused over this story's title. As someone who completely finished reading Legendary Master's Wife, I can definitely say that it is a good title. All will be clear later on in the story as the translators didn't even cover half novel yet.

I've also seen some people commenting on how the protagonist is weak = this story is trash. Those people should really stick around as You Xiao Mo's character development is steadily spread throughout the story. It was definitely interesting and satisfying to see... more>> him growing from the kid who pukes at the sight of corpses into a full fledged warrior who won't even bat an eye killing his opponent while still maintaining that stupidly lovable personality.

One thing that makes this BL story stands out from the rest is the way the author focuses more on the plot rather than lovey dovey scenes. Legendary Master's Wife has a very vast world and the author took her time describing each and every little aspect in that world, including many side characters with their own stories. You don't have to like BL to enjoy this Xuanhuan story packed with actions and comedy.

And as someone who read plenty of BL stories, I have to say I like Legendary Master's Wife the most. Because I have read so much, I got sick of seeing sappy romances between the oh-so-perfect uke (bottom) and seme (top) that this story is like a breath of fresh air.

Throughout the entire story there is never once any cliche or over the top romantic scenes between the two main characters. They don't loose control when seeing the other getting hurt and doesn't stalk their partner 24/7 like some sort of freak. They are not one of those unsecured couples that can't live without seeing the other for even an hour either.

Rather than romance, I would say that the two protagonists, Lin Xiao and You Xiao Mo got more of a bond between them. They just eventually ended up standing side by side at some point without us realizing and didn't even need to exchange sappy words like "I love you". Seriously, I can't even remember if they ever said one "I love you" throughout all 713 chapters. That's how little (or none) of these sappy moments that's in the story. The characters express their love through their actions, never words. They don't have mushy romances in any of their interactions, but more of a firm trust that drew them to one another.

There are definitely jealousy scenes, but those scenes are more hilarious moments. Rather than comforting their partner and saying lines like "you're the only one for me", Lin Xiao would harshly twist You Xiao Mo's ear as punishment while You Xiao Mo's would just mentally ranted since he doesn't want Lin Xiao to know he's jealous and get teased for it.

While in other BL stories the seme would go completely berserk when the uke gets hurt, Lin Xiao would let You Xiao Mo handle things on his own. The one time You Xiao Mo got seriously injured and barely escaped death, Lin Xiao asked him if it hurts and when You Xiao Mo said yes, he earned a smack in the head from Lin Xiao who told him to grow some brain cell next time, then proceed to tell him to hide while he deals with the enemy.

It's small scenes like these that makes me really love what You Xiao Mo and Lin Xiao shares. Their relationships feels so natural that they literally don't need to say it out loud for the readers and more importantly for one another to know.

This is definitely a great story, as a romance novel and as a simple Xuanhuan novel. The beginning might be slow, but as you read on it gets more and more interesting later. You Xiao Mo and Lin Xiao's backgrounds are definitely the key to the plot and once it's revealed, any questions or confusions people have now will all be answered. <<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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

You are being lied. This is not BL. Well it is but let me explain.

The main character is not man. He is but he is written like a classic wuxia girl. He depends a lot on his alpha male/borderline rapist lover, like any generic wuxia girl.

Actually I want to rate it 4 stars. But in the end, it's just male Protagonist written like a female. Worse he doesn't have the usual assassin skill (kept the medecal gift).

Why does it bother me so much? Imagine I rewrote Harry Potter but changed... more>> wizards to magicians. Would you think I did something amazing? At least I don't think this author did. <<less

EDIT: I meant to give this 4.3 stars, but dang I forgot to press the stars again...

After reading 449 chapters, I think I'm qualified to have an informed opinion on this novel. I didn't really wanna read this novel because 1.) I don't really like Xuanhuan and 2.) the characterization of the MC like dumb, weak, door mat like those. On the first point, the world building is consistent and rich. The pace that the world is introduced, to the MC and the reader, is good. I did have to... more>> do a couple of double takes here and there.

Second, the characterization. I'm not sure if these are completely true (that the lead is dumb or weak). In front of the ML, well, these are not completely off, but I think the MC's behavior comes from a place of... complete faith in the love of the ML for him. That is, the MC can choose to ask questions that are not so smart, can choose to be cowardly, and can choose to relinquish control because he knows that the ML will hold up both of their portions of the sky. The couple is very much in love, and it is not one-sided.

Also, the MC is not dumb or weak, in fact, normally it is his contracted beasts and ML who think or say these things. Just think about it... many of these beings are much MUCH older than the MC. So the MC is not dumb or weak at all, he's just young and mortal. Compared to other rather "normal" people that we encounter, very few can best the MC in talent, intelligence, and ability. That the MC seems less cunning that others in this world (at least in the beginning) is because he comes from a world like ours, Earth. We experience less hardships compared to the ancient times, and if we're lucky enough, we've never had to wonder if someone was trying to cheat us (yay, Americans).

The Legendary Master is the ML. He's okay. I personally wouldn't tolerate being teased as much as the MC, but it works for their dynamic. The ML only jokes around with MC. We never see him have a complete two-sided conversation with another person. Although the ML "bullys" MC with s*x (which is mutually enjoyed), most other people are treated with distance or hostility. MC humanizes the ML. ML knows his boundaries with the MC.

The beginning of the novel reads very "slice of life" Stay to witness how the MC grows through his own hard work. Yes, he's got some cheats, but without these cheats, he'd probably still be an amazing mage albeit slower to be a legend (which is he is, in his own right). To be frank, the cheats are what the make the story entertaining. <<less

I anticipate every two days for a new chapter to upload. It is literally one of two novels that I eagerly look forward to. I love You MoMo and his hubby so very much. I love this novel and hope that the translator will continue to translate until the very end.

This is a good novel for anyone who enjoys BL, action, fantasy, etc.

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.

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.

Honestly, I hope the BL isn't what brought you to this story/the reason you continue reading because you're in for a fairly long wait if that's the case. The actual story is VERY good. Good to the point that I was so absorbed into the story, I'd all but forgotten this was technically BL until the steamy parts came. And boy did they come hard. If I were to describe the novel's flow it's:

  • ~70 chapters of back story (just make it past the first 30 or so, I promise it gets exponentially more interesting from then on)
  • *pop* steamy sweat session
  • ~130 chapters of even more interesting story (you will basically forget that this is BL)
  • BAM! NSFW!!!
From there, it's a repeated cycle of 20-30 chapters of story, with the occasional... more>> leak of lust followed by several super steamy paragraphs of NSFW. Honestly, it's my ideal setup for this type of novel. The actual story is good enough to be a standalone novel, the BL is just icing on the cake.

Very much recommend this for anyone who likes novels about non-martial cultivation, even if you hate yaoi. If it's the other way around, one s*x scene per several dozen chapters probably won't make you want to keep reading. <<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. He gets better... more>> and better as they adventured, and although I cried myself stupid when it ended, I loved the ending and the bond MC shared, not only with ML but with his contract beasts, his friends, his senior brothers... this novel is full of heartwarming and hilarious moments.

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 like the level of violence 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
