Release Year: 2017

Genre: , ,

Synopsis:
From the end of the horizon, a phoenix led millions of birds in flight. Behind it, a sky filled with billowing clouds that looked like a sea of flames skimmed over Chang’an. A golden-winged peng perched loftily atop the roof of the Xingqing Palace. In its eyes was reflected the splendor of the common people who lived in this Divine Land. In silence, dynasties rose and fell, and the tides ebbed and flowed.

Li Jinglong dragged along his wound-riddled body. From the palm of his hand, a brilliant light shone as he relentlessly drew closer to Hongjun.

“The living… are merely passing travelers…”

His deep voice resounded through the depths of the world, as the black fog that covered the sky and blanketed the earth receded before that light.

“The dead… return to their eternal homes.”

That light was the blazing sun that illuminated the heavens and the earth. It was the light of the stars that twinkled in the night sky. It was an everlasting Heart Lamp that pierced through the darkness.

“The heavens and the earth are… an inn; for all our grief we inevitably return… to dust.”

Li Jinglong closed his eyes, placing one hand on Hongjun’s forehead. The white light dispersed, illuminating the mountains of corpses and rivers of blood that filled the battlefield. In the shadows cast by the light of that lamp, the memories came: the flamboyant debauchery in Pingkang Li, the parasol tree in the Exorcism Department bathing in the light of the summer sun, the swirling sand and fluttering snow of Saiwai, the clear, spring-like sound of A-Tai’s song, the new green leaves that Mo Rigen and Lu Xu picked, the flying brushstrokes of Qiu Yongsi’s pen, which evolved into immortal verses that graced Li Bai’s cup —

A young nobleman strolled through the Eastern Market of Chang’an,

Enjoying the breeze as he rode his white horse on a silver saddle.

After admiring the falling flowers, where does he like to go?

He smiles as he enters a Hu-run wine shop.

Translator's Note:
Professor moon explains:

Connection to Dinghai Fusheng Records: Tianbao is a loose sequel to Dinghai, but both can be read on their own (you won’t be missing much)! In fact, Tianbao was published before Dinghai, so the order really doesn’t matter! (If you're interested, you can also check out Post Training Notice: National First-Class Registered Exorcist, or Mingwang for short, the modern sequel, though it was written first of the three.)

Timeline: This novel starts in the Tianbao era (742 – 756 CE) of the reign of Emperor Xuanzong of Tang (618-907), a mere five decades after the fall of the short-lived Zhou Dynasty (690-705), when Empress Wu Zetian seized power from her nephew.
