Original summary:

HE (believe me =w=

Gentle caring yandere top vs. good-for-nothing deaf-blind bottom (believe me =w=

Non-mainstream steampunk =w=

Important things must be said three times:

The first one to appear is the top!

The first one to appear is the top!

The first one to appear is the top!

…But overall, not mainly from the top’s POV. =w=


Warnings/translator’s notes:

1. Contains war, injuries, and heavy angst in certain parts.

2. The love interest is the MC’s adoptive father, with an age gap of 6-7 years. If that’s unacceptable, please stop reading now.

3. Heavy plot.

4. Apparently there has been speculation that this is a tragedy. It is not. It is definitely HE, but because of the elements of war and fighting for the country, angst is – as expected – unavoidable.

5. Though the author said the top is a yandere, he is really more protective and possessive than the textbook definition of a yandere, so if you don’t like yanderes you can stop worrying about that. But because he is a powerful and dangerous character, one could argue that he is a slight yandere.


Translator’s summary:

In the age of the Great Liang Dynasty, the lives of the people were made convenient with steam-powered machines that run on a fuel named Violetstream Gold. Chang Geng, who lived in a small countryside village, shared a distant relationship with his mother while his stepfather was away most of the year round, and the only people he was close to were two little kids, the village teacher, and his yi fu – adoptive father. But his life was flipped upside down one day following the barbaric Man tribes’ invasion, and it turned out that his entire identity had been an illusion – not only was Chang Geng himself not the country boy he thought he was, but also his mother, his teacher, and even his beloved yi fu






Editor’s review:

Chang Geng, who had always lived in a far-away countryside village, would never have thought that his identity would be so absurd. His mother wasn’t his biological mother, his young deaf-blind yi fu became the widely worshipped Lord Anding, and he himself was somehow the lost fourth prince. Within one night, Chang Geng’s life had been completely changed, and could his yi fu “Shen Sixteen” – or, Gu Yun – still remain at his side to protect him…

Yet another one of Priest’s ambitious works, with smooth and seasoned writing style, intricate character design and development, as well as gripping plot. The novel cuts right in with the mystery of Chang Geng’s real identity, bringing the story to a small climax, and leaving the readers to wonder whether Chang Geng’s identity as prince is really true, and what exactly is the true face of “yi fu” Gu Yun. The story unfolds, and how would Chang Geng get along with Gu Yun leaves much to be expected of this novel indeed.
