The third volume of Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation: Mo Dao Zu Shi novel is now out in English. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the danmei novel and published the first volume in December of last year. A cover and a synopsis are also available:
The bloody war against the Wen Clan once led Wei Wuxian to seek power in demonic cultivation, and the dark acts he committed drove a wedge between him and Lan Wangji. Now, those old sins come back to haunt him as his reincarnated identity is revealed to the cultivation world. But even as the other clans call for Wei Wuxian’s death, Lan Wangji stands by him, making Wei Wuxian realize what he took for disapproval in the past might have been a much deeper emotion.
Suika and Lianyin are credited for the translation of the volume, with Pengie as an editor. Jin Fang’s art is featured on the cover. The volume has 404 pages and costs $19.99. As a danmei title, the story is focused on a relationship between two men; the genre can be compared to Japanese boys’ love.
