Huian is perfect in everything she does. Whether it’s archery, swordsmanship, intellect, beauty—she has mastered it all. One thing she doesn’t have, however, is free will. Betrothed to the heir of the Yao family, she has no choice but to marry the cold, distant, and unfeeling general. Having risen to the position of Zhulong, Yao Chenglei should be a perfect match for Huian. However, neither can stand the other.
When Huian is attacked by an ancient magic bent on killing her because of her lineage, Chenglei is dragged into her mess. Caught in a bloody battle between demons, Huian must discover the true meaning of her bloodline while also figuring out where Chenglei fits into her life. Demons, lust for power, and a dangerous romance—the path to Zhulong is drenched in blood.
