To save his sect from destruction, Shen Qingqiu has at last submitted to Luo Binghe—though he wishes people would stop saying it like that! Unfortunately, they’re not wrong.

Luo Binghe has finally made his desire for his old master clear. For all that Shen Qingqiu longs to return to their peaceful days together on Qing Jing Peak, he knows it’s impossible now that Luo Binghe has darkened into a true demon lord. But as Shen Qingqiu begins to uncover more of Proud Immortal Demon Way’s hidden plot, including his host body’s own backstory, he realizes he must learn to see Luo Binghe f
or who he truly is if either of them are to survive.


For me, volume 3 of The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System was a little weaker than the first two volumes. The pacing was a bit awkward; it felt somewhat rushed towards the end after the slow build up of earlier books. However, there were still some good, memorable moments and I was mostly content with how it ended. Although I haven't completely finished reading any of the series yet, I would say this one overall is the weakest of the three MXTX works currently published in English, but it's still worth reading if you are a fan of one or both of the other two, and it is probably the most humorous of the bunch. This volume gets three and half stars from me, but I will round up rather than down when taking into account the series as a whole.
