The web novel Sansheng, Wangchuan Wu Shang Review (三生，忘川无殇 by 九鹭非香) has been completely translated into English by Hamster428.
To be honest, I don’t even know why I read this since it’s not the type of story I like. However, once I started reading, I just couldn’t stop. It’s great!
This story was my first time reading a supernatural Chinese novel based on Chinese folklore/myth. Sansheng is a rock who gained consciousness and a human form. She’s like the main character in Dream of the Red Chamber except for the fact that she lives in the Underworld.
One day as she is going about her business (mostly loafing around and reading romance books) she sees something that she likes. It’s Moxi, the war god. He has descended into the Underworld from Heaven so that he can become a human. It’s part of the trials that gods must go through. Sansheng falls madly in love with him at first sight.
What follows is the story of their three human lifetimes together.
It’s very sweet and sometimes tragic but ends in happily ever after. Sansheng and Moxi are both strong characters who both know what they want. They don’t pussyfoot and are very active in their pursuit and protection of their loved ones. Of course, since the three human lifetimes are meant to be a trial, fate steps in and makes every life full of suffering.
The story is quite short, just 15 chapters plus and epilogue and 3 more bonus chapters. The author also has another story set in the same universe, Demon King/The Parting of the Orchid and Cang.
I recommend this to anyone who likes love stories and Chinese myth/folklore.
