Wild Flowers 风玫瑰 – 沧月

wildflowers

Wild Flowers is a novel that is contrary to the typical Romance stories. The majority of men in the novel are cold, emotionless, and cruel characters, no matter it be Xi Ze Er or Gong Zi Chu or Lei. Each who will stop at nothing for their objective, and personal feelings in their hearts will never be first place, as Lei  had put it, “Complicated people do not have pure love.”

“Is this the curse that we can never break away from in this lifetime? Whoever is besides us, will fall to misfortune. Whatever place we have passed through will flow with immeasurable blood. In our lifetime we will never obtain what we want. Even if we are submerged in the sea will still not be able to drink a drop of water. Even if loved by countless people, will still die from loneliness. ”

War and love, poison and scheme, betrayal or salvation….towards love she has already given up all hope, inside the harem where do the knights gallop? Is this the curse that we can never break away from in this lifetime?

    Helllooo guys! I haven’t been posting here for a really long time!

    Cang Yue’s stories are generally a mix of wuxia, fantasy, romance, and horror. I think she really has a knack for endearing you to characters in the fewest words possible. I remember being moved to tears after reading anything written by her.

    I’m actually a little conflicted about Cang Yue now. I used to be a HUGE fan of hers, and cried waterfalls over pretty much every character that died. Unfortunately, last month I copied and pasted a sentence I really liked and found this whole thread on a forum that pinpointed all her instances of plagiarism (both ideas and entire chunks of text, everything from the Egyptian Book of the Dead to manga to the stories of her fellow authors)! I already spotted some things she stole from the greats like Jin Yong, Gu Long, and especially Wen Rui’an, but this discovery made me lose a lot of respect for her. 🙁

    Chancy, if you’re still interested in reading her works, I would recommend the 听雪楼 series (it’s really long though, and recently I discovered that a lot of it is lifted right from Wen Rui’an’s series that starts with 温柔一刀. An even longer series by Cang Yue is 镜, and the world-building is really good, but it was just too long for me to finish. A lot of people also really liked 七夜雪, but I didn’t like it as much as 听雪楼. That series took me an entire year to read because it was so long and tear-inducing, but I loved every moment of it. I was just heartbroken when I realized much of it wasn’t original, though. T_T

    I think you’ll like her style. 听雪楼 only has fan-made radio drama chapters though, and I’m not much of a listener anyway, so I always read word for word. Other than the first two chapters, I think I cried in every chapter in the series. I simultaneously love and hate most of the characters, lol. Neither Tong Hua nor Tang Qi Gong Zi give me the same feeling. I guess it’s because her stories really fulfill my Jianghu dream. 🙂

    In Cang Yue’s stories, male and female leads share the spotlight. The 听雪楼 series focuses more on separate stories anyway. The protagonists’ fates are revealed in the first chapter (guy and girl kill each other), so it’s clearly not the focal point of the series. I really admire Xiao Yiqing (and fear him and hate him too) and don’t really like female lead Shu Jingrong, but I cried for pretty much all the other characters, usually their subordinates.

    And nope, I haven’t read the other novel you posted. Too busy with school and work to check it out, but I wonder if it’s highly rated. Where do you find bookstores with such novels? I thought you live in the U.S.

    Me too, I’m saving lots of books to read after graduation this Dec. We only have one Chinese bookstore in Las Vegas, I find them in there, but they don’t have alot of books, only a small batch. I’d consider myself lucky if I can find a few authors with names that I can recognize. They only have one Cang Yue novel. I’ve went to alot of local libraries, there’s one more next to me that I haven’t checked yet. They have about almost a hundred titles in each library, but haven’t found anything that really caught my attention, they seem to stock more Taiwanese books. Have you read some b4 by Taiwanese authors? Lots of the titles are very….i dunno, uncreative? Like Wicked King, Delicate Consort, …..

    Oh you live in Las Vegas, cool. I live in the middle of nowhere. My university’s library does have all of Jin Yong and Liang Yusheng’s novels, as well as the classics, but nothing modern. I haven’t read any books by Taiwanese novelists because online versions are often in traditional and I can’t stand reading traditional. I can only read novels online but it gets tiring on the eyes, so I’m not half as addicted as you guys are. :p

    A bit Kate but The description reminds me of the RL story of pope innocens smth (or how it is written, more famous for being one of the wicked popes and rumored to had made a deal with the devil, he lived around the 15th/16th century I think) and his illegitimate children, but it was quite common back then it was quite common for clerics and so on to have illegitimate children, the mothers of those were usually already married women.

    his daughter lucathia (or similar, also famous for her beauty and Golden hair) who was for political reasons married of several times with unfortunate endings of her husbands since young. Therefore there were rumours of her killing them, being cursed or being in a incestous relationship with her brother Cesare or her father. She was also quiet smart

    Cesare is famous for being a ruthless Person who did a lot of cruel things for power and was feared by many

    If you are interested their family name is beginning with ‘B’ sounding like ‘bougires’ and are from Spain I think
