    Summary

    There is a sword in his hand.

    The hilt is sized perfectly to his grip. This weapon was made for him. He holds it in grief, the weight of it almost too much to bear, all his failings stacked upon it. There is blood on the blade. The sword is thrust through another man’s chest. Blood covers pale robes, staining them red. There is blood on his hands as he grips the hilt. A croaked voice mutters, soft and too intimate for such a statement: “Er-ge, stay and die with me.”

    He looks up and for the first time he has had this dream, the face of the man saying it is not in shadow. There are wide eyes, fanned by dark lashes, and dark lips stained with blood.

    In which Lan Huan dreams of the Guanyin Temple, and slowly remembers.

    Summary

    Qin Su had commissioned the dolls from a Lanling artisan. There was a Zewu-jun, a Lianfang-zun, and even a Chifeng-zun; an embroidered venerated triad.

    A-Song had liked them much more than the numerous yo-yos or marbles in the playroom. The Zewu-jun doll became his bedtime companion and protector, because he had seen how much his father admired and valued Sect Leader Lan, and A-Song wanted to be just like A-Die.

    Summary

    “Then explain it to me,” he pleas, reaching up to catch my hand against his cheek. “I want to know everything.”
    "Everything?” I feel the trap closing around me. I don’t know how to escape it.
    "I want to know why. The lies. The murder.”
    “That’s simple. It was to survive.”
    He shakes his head firmly against my palm. “It is not that simple.”

    This is Meng Yao's life story told in his own words. This is the story of how a son of a whore became the most powerful man in the cultivation world; how he lived and loved and schemed and died. This is a story about how the dark side of humanity can destroy a soul, and how the love of just one person can gift that soul redemption.
