Love and Redemption/ The City of Mercy 慈悲城/ 错过世界遇到你 by Ding Mo (HE)

What he offers: love, blood and mercy.

If I did not meet you, I would not have experienced such a different and  exhilarating life, nor would I have experienced such loneliness and desolation. She thought she had erased him from her past, from her life….however fate had something else in store.

“Don’t look at me with such an expression.” he said softly, “like looking at a piece of trash”.

” I will not love a murderer, a triad boss. I’d rather love an upright, kind,honest but poor man”.

She views things only in black and white, but he causes her to live in a world of grey — this is his world!

Will she still love and accept him?  Loving a person, does it require one to pay a price? A lifetime of  grievance and betraying one’s conscience? Is this the price to pay for loving him? But she’s not willing! Until the hailstorm of bullets in the golden triangle…….and he fell before her very eyes….

Revenge vs redemptionl

Love vs conviction

Life vs death

    Hey Xinn I read 慈悲城 already……very very nice!!!!! Or at least I found it very nice…
    Peanuts how to post?

    Thanks peanuts…hehe….so sweet….I’m a total computer klutz…..not very good with gadgets…including phones….so plllssss have lots of patience…hehe….

    Xinn….I dunno if it’s really hardcore…but it does have some killings and stuff

    SPOILER SPOiLER for Xinn

    I dunno who tang yi is..but Chen bei Yao to me is sweet, and kind and wholly devoted to the one he loves, but if you are on his wrong side…..oh well..dun expect too much…..but to those he values, he treasures…

    Mu shan is smart, cool, rather emotional but can control her that’s and feelings well…. Very good match for bei Yao.

    But there are quite a few second leads….actually…to me they are all second leads coz their lives are just all as interesting. I’ll list them on the site when I find my password…….hehe

    Congratulations!!! You can now start sharing all your nice juicy books with us!!

    Finally, this book is up after months of waiting for someone to read it. Many thanks.

    But tell me something, did Chen Bei Yao turn over from the dark side at the end? Hahaha….I was actually already one third into the book but stopped becoz I wanted spoilers before I continue….).

    Btw, if you don’t know who’s Tang Yi, go read Black & White and Tang’s Kitten (peanuts pet…lol) …..triad story with a funny twist to it.

    Xinn…..I posted…haha…peanuts did 90% I just translated…wahahahah

    Spoiler spoiler

    Yes he did….I was biting my nails and reading at the same time….actually I really didn’t know who I wanted her to end up with…..I felt for both guys…. I tot they were both quite impressive in character…..even xun….honestly..other than they all dabbled on the dark side…. I felt all their characters towards their women were all loving and loyal.

    Meow, meow, lol. Now, you know how hardworking I’ve to be to cater to both of you:P

    What? Got two & more great guys? I am scared of this type of book bcos I may end up shipping the 2nd lead & cry my heart out:(

    I need to start one of this author books soon but they are so long and gruesome. I’ll start snail first since I need a break from the dark side. I am not so blood thirsty like XX:P

    Huggss and awards to peanuts dear… 🙂 I’m still not too sure how to work the posting site still.. But oh well…will learn along the way… :p

    Yes…. 3 more actually…no…. 4 to be exact…. I was surprised that there were that many….2 are minor characters…. But the two main ones are Chen bei Yao and ding heng…..the 2 minors are Zhou ya ze and Li Cheng, I’m not sure where to fit xun, coz he’s in a league of his own….and oh well zhang hen tian is well…. The terrorist godfather….
    But I dun think its really tat bloody….abit suspenseful…..but honestly…if she could have both guys….tat would be good….

    One strong male lead is all I can take.
    If there’s a second, third and fourth…..this usually makes me very disoriented.
    Am going to raincheck this book for time being until I learn how to multi focus…haha….

    He was supposed to be jailed…but coz he saved some mayor or sth like that so he was granted amnesty or the likes of it….he managed to show up in time for his kid to be delivered…:)

    Hahaha I second with Yui for a translation on this! Hi, I’m new to these novels and your site makes it ten times easier to find and read/listen to these works.
    If anyone find the vietnamese audiobook or someone picks it up as translation project, can you guys please put the link up?
    Thanks and love this site!

    Are you on ximalaya? If yes, you can pay via wechat wallet. Get someone to send you a red envelope and then you can use the balance to pay for books on ximalaya. That’s how I do it.

    Hi Raini,

    Thank you, but how do I get someone to send me a red envelope?

    It seems at this time I need to get someone from China to send me a red envelope first, can’t do it if from another country… so sad.

    thanks Raini for your help 🙂

    Do you use wechat? Do you have family/friends that uses it? I think wechat’s wallet is international now so you can load money into it from your credit card. You’ll probably need about $10 USD at most. I was able to buy a whole book with about $2 it was only about 20 chapters. With ximalaya, you have to buy their coins/points first and then you buy each individual chapter with the coins/points. I just looked in the audiobook page at the top and looks like it’s only for I use the app version of so I guess the next time I load up my coins, I’ll take some screen captures and write up a tutorial on how to purchase paid audiobooks. If you know that the book you are going to read is going to be a good one, it’s pretty worth it. I had a lot of hopes for the book I purchased because the voice actors are awesome but turned out the story was so messy and plot was very haywire, just plain didn’t like it so I wasted my $2 and didn’t even finish the book. Most of the popular and good books are free though, so not to worry!

    Thank you
