THE TOUCH OF A HAND, A ROLL OF THE DICE
Xie Lian has confirmed that the bewitching youth San Lang is actually Hua Cheng, one of the Four Calamities and a supreme ghost despised by all heavenly officials. Still, he has trouble matching the terror of his companion's reputation with the charming, clever, and protective young man he's come to know.
When a distress signal leads Xie Lian into Ghost City, a bustling metropolis containing all the horrors and delights of the dead, he sees Hua Cheng in his element--and his true form--for the first time. But despite their chemistry and care for one another, there are missions to fulfill and secrets to uncover, and Xie Lian's centuries of troubled history are never far behind.
I was excited to continue reading Heaven Official's Blessings and volume 2 was entirely new to me in terms of story arc since the anime I'd watched before starting to read the series only covered the action in volume 1. There was plenty of excitement in this volume and some wonderful moments between Xie Lan and Hua Cheng.I fell even more in love with Hua Cheng in this volume and I am very much looking forward to seeing what will happen in the next book, which I hope to read during February. As always, the book was beautifully presented with a collection of wonderful illustrations. It gets 4.5 stars from me.
