Mo Xiang Tong Xiu masterfully crafts and builds this world of Gods, Ghost Kings, and Vengeful Spirits.  She keeps you guessing and turning the page to see what new obstacle awaits the Scrap Collecting God.  Xie Lian is a beloved Crowned Prince of Xianle, who became a Martial God who ascended three times.  Having fallen twice, he goes back down to the mortal realm to solve cases involving vengeful spirits taking the lives of innocent humans. While on his way home after a day of scrap collecting, Xie Lian stumbles across a mysterious young master, San Lang who joins him on his endeavors.  …although there seems to be more too him then meets the eye. Embark on this amazing series with Xie Lian and San Lang as it is officially released in English for the first time!  It is an amazing story with a setting in Ancient China, world of cultivation, an emotional roller coaster (later volumes will need a box of tissue nearby), and an 800 yearlong love story that is captivating beyond words. Don’t miss the donghua (animation) adaptation, season one can be found on Netflix!

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER! The blockbuster danmei/Boys' Love novels from China that inspired the animated series!
This epic historical fantasy about a prince and the mysterious man by his side is now in English, for the very first time.

Born the crown prince of a prosperous kingdom, Xie Lian was renowned for his beauty, strength, and purity. His years of dedicated study and noble deeds allowed him to ascend to godhood. But those who rise may also fall, and fall he does--cast from the heavens and banished to the world below.
Eight hundred years after his mortal life, Xie Lian has ascended to godhood for the third time, angering most of the gods in the process. To repay his debts, he is sent to the Mortal Realm to hunt down violent ghosts and troublemaking spirits who prey on the living. Along his travels, he meets the fascinating and brilliant San Lang, a young man with whom he feels an instant connection. Yet San Lang is clearly more than he appears... What mysteries lie behind that carefree smile?
