Heaven Official’s Blessing Synopsis
The heavens tremble, thunder rumbles, and Xie Lian appears with an apologetic smile, again! Eight hundred years earlier, he was a beloved martial god, known as the Crown Prince of Xianle. Now, he ascends to the celestial realm for the third time, but simply as a pitiful scrap-gatherer god with no followers behind him. On his first mission, Xie Lian finds himself alone in the dark moonlit night. There, a gentle man dressed in red guides him through the forest. However, as abruptly as he appeared, the man suddenly dissipated into a swarm of silver butterflies.
Xie Lian later learns that this mysterious stranger was none other than Hua Cheng, the “Flower sought after by the crimson rain,” a Ghost King feared by demons and gods alike. But before Xie Lian can find out why Hua Cheng would help a heavenly officer like him, he meets San Lang. San Lang, a young man who possesses great knowledge not only about the Ghost King, but also about the now forgotten Crown Prince, decides to accompany Xie Lian on his journey to unravel the mysteries of the past.
