Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji are headed for a showdown at Guanyin Temple, where their path converges with Jin Guangyao and Nie Mingjue's reassembled fierce corpse. With decades-long schemes finally unveiled, and terrible secrets unearthed, the events of this rain-battered night will decide not just the future of the entire cultivation world...but also that of a love story two lifetimes in the making.

Also included in this final volume are eight short stories about what happens when an epic tale ends but life goes on. From magical incense burners to tense banquets, lotus-pod-hunting to Night Hunts with the juniors—these stories span dawn to dusk and so much more!


And so we reach the end of Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation. As with previous volumes, I essentially knew the plot from The Untamed, but there were plenty of romantic details in the book that had not been included in the TV series due to censorship. I also really enjoyed the eight short stories that gave us a glimpse of the life the two characters shared once the main plot concluded. All up a fun read and a fitting end to an enjoyable novel series. It gets 4.5 stars from me.
