Following the trail of a dismembered corpse, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji arrive at the gates of Yi City: an old, abandoned town shrouded in mist and restless spirits. A fiendish foe awaits them in the shadows, heralding a tale of heartbreak and tragedy. When the mysterious corpse’s identity is finally revealed, the hunt for its killer plunges Wei Wuxian back into the depths of the cultivation world's politics, where he must keep his enemies close and Lan Wangji even closer.


After a wait of several months, it was great to sink back into the world of Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation. I enjoyed the continuation of the story in book form, with memories of the TV series rising as I read familiar scenes. Again, the accompanying illustrations are lovely and the notes at the end of the book helpful for understanding cultural references. The prose is so-so, but I accept that when reading this kind of work and it's not my principal focus with this story. Now the long wait begins until volume 3 releases in August!
