Heaven Official's Blessing: Tian Guan Ci Fu (Novel) Vol. 1

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?
This Chinese xianxia fantasy novel series built around the romanticized love between two men (danmei) is the newest work from author Mo Xiang Tong Xiu, and has spawned an ongoing multimedia franchise that's beloved across the world--including the animated series (donghua) that amassed 100+ million views in just its first month. The Seven Seas English-language edition will include covers from 日出的小太陽 (tai3_3), and exclusive, all-new interior illustrations from ZeldaCW.

Do yourself a favor and just read this novel. Hardcopy, Kindle, it doesn't matter, you need to experience this. The entire series is mysterious, romantic, and magical. MXTX is such a great author as well, I love all of her characters. Hualian invented love. ❤️

This book is my reason for living, I waited from august and now it’s mine. I love gay people 😍, I also love men. I love the manga and the animated show. I threatened to beat the Amazon guy with a bag of ramen noodles. But it came and I’m SO HAPPY IM HAPPIER THAN I HAVE EVER BEEN.

I've been waiting not so very patiently for the English translation of TGCF, after becoming addicted to the utterly glorious donghua. While I did read the fan translations by other works of this author, I was holding out for the physical copy of this one. It hasn't disappointed. It's beautifully illustrated, the translation so far seems very fluid, and there's bonus content in the form of a helpful character guide at the end. A stunning book, entirely worth the price of admission.
家人们,咱就是说一个狠狠的爱住了。 This is so surreal that I’m holding the ENGLISH physical copies. Ever since being a fan of the series back in 2017, this is a dream come true. To see it being loved by western fans makes me so happy.
