    I sometime think Old Nine Gates is even better than Grave Robbers, because all the stories in here are so sad and so unforgettable. But good thing is Wu Xie and Kylin have a good (yet incomplete) ending in Grave Robbers in the end (posted in the author’s weibo), which I feel like can make up for the sad stories of their previous generation in Old Nine Gates.
    AHHHH, whenever I think of Old Nine Gates and Grave Robbers, my heart hurts soooooo much!

    I find it hard to find books of the mystery genre online as they’re usually in print more, or am I looking in the wrong places? Thanks for the online link!
