Another wonderful part of the novel! I had more trouble rereading this part not because this part is bad but because one of the sections is a particularly emotionally fraught part for me (ah Xizuan's death just hurts so much, I feel so bad for everyone) and it was hard to return to it again after reading it the first time, reading it in the manhua, and then seeing it in the donghua, but I finally pushed through, and I still love the story and the wonderful book.

Jin Fang's cover art is so beautiful! I just love it! idledee's interior color illustration is so sweet! I generally really enjoyed Marina Privalova's interior art, though again Privalova took some liberties with certain scenes so that the scenes are just drawn incorrectly, but there's nothing as egregious as some of the ones in previous volumes (sorry not sorry, still annoyed about the Yi City piece), so overall it's fine. I particularly liked Wei Wuxian falling out of the tree. That was lovely.

While this volume has some very painful parts in it, as they all do, it also has some of my favorite scenes, including when Wei Wuxian leaps from the tree into Lan Wangji's arms, when Wen Ning reveals the core transfer to Jiang Cheng, drunk Lan Wangji giving Wei Wuxian a chicken, the Juniors being very overwrought by seeing Wangxian, protective Jiang Cheng, Jin Ling being very in love with Sizhui, Nie Huaisang being Himself, Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian being hopelessly in love with each other, and the little but obvious ways they express it... There's so much goodness! Even the painful parts are good, it's just sad at times. The characters in this story really have it rough.

Overall, another great volume! Looking forward to volume 5! ( )

Here we have more flashbacks, this time to the period after the Sunshot Campaign. The Wen Clan has nearly been wiped out, and its remnants are being cruelly mistreated by the Jin Clan. Wei Wuxian, who has calmed down considerably since volume 3, is helping Wen Qing find her beloved little brother Wen Ning and ends up establishing a new home for the remnants of the Wen Clan at the Burial Mounds, the very place where Wen Chao once left him to die.

This volume completes the story of Wei Wuxian's downfall and then jumps back to the present. Wei Wuxian's identity has been revealed and he is believed to be responsible for a horde of fierce corpses. Pretty much everyone except Lan Wangji and some of the junior cultivators wants to kill him. However, some undeniable and shocking truths finally come to light.

As a whole, I'd still say that Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation is my least favorite of MXTX's series. The overall story structure could be better, and there are so many characters that not even Seven Seas' character and name guide could always help me keep things straight. That said, this volume was good. So good that I need to review it now, the day I finished it, so that I can start volume 5 without fear of mixing up events and revelations.

This volume took the previous three volumes' worth of story threads and characters and tied it all together, sometimes in surprising ways. There were at least a couple revelations that made me gasp aloud. Even though I knew it was coming, the full story of how Jin Ling became an orphan was heart-crushing, and I now feel somewhat bad for some of my prior assumptions about Wei Wuxian. But only somewhat, because his killing spree in the previous volume was pretty intense.

The story of his time as the Yiling Patriarch was more touching than I expected, and Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji had some really wonderful bittersweet moments. And I think my soul left my body for a moment during one particular revelation at Lotus Pier. WEI WUXIAN.

I wasn't sure if this was going to be structured like SVSSS, with the last volume reserved entirely for side stories. FYI, even if the final volume includes some side stories, the main story doesn't conclude with this volume. There's still a villain to be faced. Also, Wei Wuxian messed up, and Lan Wangji and I need him to fix things.

I think this volume might have convinced me to give the live action show another go - I know it won't follow the books exactly (uh, definitely not), but surely it will give me Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji, and A-Yuan having a meal together while A-Yuan plays with toys a stoic Lan Wangji bought him?

Now, off to start volume 5.

Extras:

Character & name guide, glossary, two full-color illustrations, and black-and-white illustrations throughout.

The penultimate volune of MDZS jumps in never lets up. It opens with Wei Wuxian rescuing the Wen remnants and steamrolls right to the epic battle at Nightless City before returning to the present time and the new siege of the Burial Mounds.

The events leading to Wei Ying's downfall are heart-wrenching. Thankfully, he does not stand alone any longer; he has Lan Zhan at his side this time. Once again, I was amazed at how faithful The Untamed tv show is to the novel as the events match closely. The greatest diversion arises from the romance. And wow does the book deliver in spades on that! Lan Zhan's drunken night in Yunping is so much more (satisfyingly) erotic and brings the romance front and center. To the frustration of the reader, it also highlights how the two men struggle to really communicate with one another. Unspoken feelings are misinterpreted and both are left hurt and confused. The reader is left emotionally exhausted but desperate for Volume 5. ( )
