    Very addictive, as expected from anything written by Priest.

    It was kinda sarcasm. I shouldn't added the "plz" in it, it was misleading.

    Since this discussion was created recently, I am here to give my opinion on this work in general and the translation in particular.

    Having considerable experience in reading various novels, I dare say that "Liu Yao" is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. This author (Priest) writes hard, colorful and realistic, in spite of the fact that, in fact, this is a genre xianxia. This story plays on the strings of my soul. I must say that I adore the gradual, but impressive development of the characters, when, looking back at the end, you understand: they have come a long way, and it was not in vain. Maybe someone will be frightened BL, but my opinion is this: if the piece is great, it doesn't matter what kind of romance is there. It only adds sensuality and sharpness to the already delightful story.

    This story is about a long transition in life, where there will be a lot of losses and many finds. The book of that kind, which I would relate to the doctrine of life - watching the heroes, making some conclusions for themselves, you understand something. This is amazing. I’m quite a few years old, but I still discover new things in my life and learn from others, including the characters in the works of the Priest.

    The translator who took on this project was beyond praise. He was definitely fluent in language. Since English is not my native language, it is usually difficult for me to read, but there was no such barrier here.
    However, I hope that the person who will take on this project in turn will not forget that there are people who are having trouble reading in a foreign language. Some translators post text as pictures, and this causes my eyes to flow with blood.

    Otherwise, I want to say that this is an amazing work, and it fully deserves to be translated well. Please, Translator-xiansheng, seek out and save us, the suffering readers!

    I totally agree! This is definitely one of the best novels out there, and sadly we have no news of the former translator from 8 months. He was doing an amazing job, so I hope who picks it up can give the same level of quality in translating, cause this novel deserves a good translation to be fully enjoyed.
    And really, Priest works never stop to amaze me, and I think this one is the best I read for now.

    I hope this gets picked up again, it is one of the few xianxia novels that I still enjoy.

    It would be cool if exiledrebels or bc novels can pick it up. I only know that @K.san here is part of ER, but if other members of those websites are here in NUF then can we tag them?!

    Liuyao's been on my reading list for a long time... Though I don't personally plan to translate any Priest novel, I can surely put Liuyao onto ExR's list of possible new works ^^

    Not that, but rather a private list for us to recommend potential future projects to each other. I'm not entirely sure how the new-project process works either, but I'll definitely familiarize myself with it after I finish with MDZS (which is really, really soon)...
