Review:

The story is well made and I just love the story. It was one of the stories that gave me my idea to write my own novels and is trying to find more great Chinese novels which will be good to see too. If I have to pick one bad thing, then it is that the international version is nowhere as great as the long Chinese version but the international version is better than nothing

Stars:

7 out of 6 stars
