Two hundred years ago, on the Battlefield of the Blue River, the last remaining army of the Empire of Light collapsed in the midst of demonic outcries. As the last Field Marshal and Emperor fell, the chaotic world of the Western River no longer had a common ruler. Factions were formed and endless conflicts ensued, military might became the only currency of survival, and the dream to reunite the lands became the sole goal of many rulers in the generations that came after.

In the south-eastern part of the land, a powerful faction with over two hundred years of history – House ZiChuan – fought off the Demons to the east, defended against the House Liu Feng to the west, and contained the House Lin to the south. In order to accomplish their great ambitions and extend the bloodline of their family, countless heroes of ZiChuan gave their lives in order to make this magnificent hymn come to life. This is a story about this legendary family and a hundred years of their blood and tears.

Translator’s Note:
If you first start reading this novel, you may find the story a bit odd and all over the place. Well, you are right. The story start off incredibly slow, and is mixed with many sidestory materials which has nothing to do with the story it self.

However the story is a very serious one, and will show itself as such as the story progresses. Slowly, but surely the story will pick up momentum, and will take a drastic turn once it reaches the first major campaign in the Far east, which happens somewhere in the second half of the first book. (Around chapter 10).

If you wish to give this novel a chance, I would recommand you to keep reading till that point, If you don’t like it then, you should stop and move on.

    Each chapter is equivalent to 8 chapters. So there are basically 64 chapters translated.

    I really liked this series so far, thanks to all involved. The story is basically war and politics so far. Very little of fantasy, no OP main characters to be seen, just cool battles and Game of Thrones style intrigue. Without the heartbreak, so far anyway.

    Anyways, give it a try ppl.
