Why did I love this book?
This book was my introduction to Chinese danmei (AKA boy’s love) novels and also my introduction to Xianxia (fantasy/cultivation) novels. I hunted down a fan translation after watching its live-action adaptation, The Untamed, on Netflix. I cannot recommend it enough to readers who want to sample a fantasy romance set in a non-Western setting. Ultra-romantic, gripping, and full of relevant present-day social commentary. An excellent introduction to this rich and amazing genre and with a brand-new New York Times bestselling official English translation.
