White No-Face's mask is off, and the final conflict has begun. Deep in the ancient caverns and lava flows of Mount Tonglu, Xie Lian must face the one whose hatred has followed him for centuries--but this time, he won't have to do it alone. Hua Cheng has spent his long existence amassing the power to protect his beloved Xie Lian, and with their feelings for each other out in the open, he's found even more reason to fight and survive. In this thrilling final volume, can Xie Lian and Hua Cheng overcome the last hurdles in the way of their love?

Also included in this final volume are five short stories that expand and continue the story. Enjoy these extra tales of holiday festivities, bedside comfort, and even a birthday bash!

I was super excited to finally reach the end of this series to see how everything would conclude, but at the same time I am sad that it's over and there'll be no more books to look forward to. Overall, I enjoyed the ending, and I also like the included extra stories. I bought the special edition for this one which came with some lovely posters, postcards and other bits and bobs, and I felt it was worth the extra $10 or so I paid for that. Heaven Official's Blessing remains my favourite danmei series still and I will probably do a re-read of these books in 2024 when I have time to whizz through them all in one go. I am giving this volume 5 stars.
