If you're looking for some sweet and slow bl romance, this is the novel for you.

The pacing is one of the best I've seen among all the bl novels I've perused. There isn't too much inner monologue that you would usually see in Japanese web novels, which is a nice change.

The best part is that although this is story has romance, that isn't the only thing the novel has to offer. I was very surprised to see politics sprinkled in

and the way Vio's brother and parents treated him caused my blood to boil


There are even fight scenes with swordplay and magic. Moreover, the mechanics of magic aren't glossed over like in other novels. It's clear that a lot of work and thought was put in writing this story. <<less

Super Recommended!!

This novel emphasis more on the story. There's also romance but it was slow pace. Their romance-relationship come after the master-servant relationship.

The MC (uke) not that girlish, though he is super pretty. He is quite manly and I guess too kind~ well he is a modern person so its understadable.

The story is still ongoing and the author often updates. This is a mix of sweet and bitter story though, also lots of politics. You'll feel like riding a rollercoaster when reading this novel.

So... Just Do (reading) It!

I have already read the raw, not until the latest update though. The romance is slow-paced, it doesn't feel rushed or pushed, and above all, it's very sweet with a bit bitter mixed. I like how story unfold, I can feel the author's seriousness, passion in writing. It's not all about romance, but also about a very little bit of politics and serious fight in swords and magic. ... more>>

the politics parts were not mainly played by protag, but by others but the protag's heavily involved


I think the fight scenes were written well, the author even made a theory on magic in this world, the magic structure, components, etc

(the protag is a magic hobbyist)


I haven't read much BL novels, but I think this one is pretty well balanced and well written compared with other BL novels I have read thus far (in BL category, my #1 favorite)

I think the component between romance, fights, and slice of life, is well balanced. Overall, I really recommend this novel, 4.7/5 (the -0.3 is for a bit of plotholes in the story, but I think since the story is enjoyable, it doesn't really matter)


One of the plotholes I have been unable to understand is how come he became so traumatized to what happened to the original host, I'm quite sure it's the soul transmigration/possesion, not the "old memory resurfaced" type, but well for this part I think maybe it's just that the original host's memories are much too vivid when he had them replayed in his brain during his fever, so it felt like he experienced it himself


Edit : I caught up with the latest release, this is really good.


This even has a war arc! I thought it would never happen! Seeing how the author wrote the story thus far, I kinda expecting it to have war strategy included in the story, since the author has been so thorough in writing this story

The story has only just started, but I'm enjoying it so far. The vivid imagery really brings the magic to life. Violant's struggles with PTSD are not side-stepped and forgotten, so I'm looking forward to see how his character develops. The background information for Violant is well-done and summarizes his family situation and situation in the town appropriately.

I have really been looking forward to the updates for this novel. I feel a ton of hope and anticipation toward its progression.

Sleepchaser stated that this story is well-written and having a blast from translating it, I also am enjoying reading this. It has been a while since I have read a good story like this with a great plot & other aspects. I am now looking forward how it will have a grand finale
