Gods should never meddle in the affairs of mortals, but Xie Lian is not one to follow the rules when lives are at risk. He spits in the face of heaven and its laws and descends in a fury to save his country from drought and civil war. Yet this golden child gets a harsh dose of reality when he discovers just how little one individual—even a god—can do to save a crumbling nation. As the people reject and betray him, one young soldier stands by Xie Lian—a boy with a face wrapped in bandages and a fierce loyalty in his heart. In this chaotic past, can an unshakable bond grow from the ashes of unimaginable destruction?


Volume three of Heaven Official's Blessing was a great continuation of the series. There was plenty of action and excitement both in the backstory opening chapters and the later scenes set in current times, all accompanied by the usual excellent illustrations. It also offered a great first kiss between Xie Lian and Hua Cheng! The ending left me desperate to know what would happen next, but I am trying to hold off, so I can read book four in April, book five in May and then book six will be out for me to read in June. I am trying to spread the pleasure, if I can restrain myself for four weeks. This volume gets 4.5 stars from me.
