Seven Seas Licenses Three Danmei Novel Series: LEGEND OF EXORCISM, DINGHAI FUSHENG RECORDS, and RIVERBAY ROAD MENS’ DORMITORY by Fei Tian Ye Xiang

Posted on July 10th, 2024

Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the license acquisition of three danmei/Boys’ Love novel series by author Fei Tian Ye Xiang (非天夜翔): Legend of Exorcism, Dinghai Fusheng Records, and Riverbay Road Mens’ Dormitory. Originally released in the Chinese language, these three series from the fan-favorite author will be officially available in English for the first time, featuring illustrations and brand-new art. 

Legend of Exorcism (Novel)

In this thrilling high fantasy adventure set in ancient China, a naive young man must join hands with an unlucky general to protect the mortal world from evil spirits. This story takes place in the same universe as Dinghai Fusheng Records and inspired multimedia adaptations, including an animated series/donghua!

Hongjun has lived his whole life in the mystical Taihang Mountains, a haven for yao: spirits with powerful magical abilities. A half-yao himself, he knows little of the human world until the day the ruler of the mountain instructs him to conceal his identity and journey to the mortal realm. There, he is to join the Department of Exorcism in the capital of Chang’an.

Upon arrival, Hongjun finds himself under the command of Li Jinglong, a down-on-his-luck general with no spiritual abilities of his own. Along with his fellow exorcists—a group of enigmatic young men with uncanny talents—Hongjun and Li Jinglong must work together to protect Chang’an from the evil yao that lurk in its darkest corners. But greater machinations are afoot in the capital…and in order to confront them, Hongjun will have to reveal all of himself to Li Jinglong.

Dinghai Fusheng Records (Novel)

The hit novel series that inspired the comic/manhua—also available in English from Seven Seas—and the animated series/donghua! In an ancient China where magic has been nearly extinguished, two young men must work together to prevent the destruction of all life. (Takes place in the same universe as Legend of Exorcism.)

It has been three hundred years since magic disappeared from the Divine Land. Chen Xing is the last Great Exorcist—a young man with a tenuous grip on magic whose life is destined to end on his twentieth birthday. As whispers about the return of the demonic entity known as Mara echo across the land, Chen Xing is burdened with a daunting task: to seek out his fated counterpart, the Protector Martial God, and together, to save the world.

Enter Xiang Shu, a condemned man with a haunted past. Accused of unspeakable atrocities, Xiang Shu is an enigma—handsome, skilled, and facing execution for crimes he claims he didn’t commit. As their destinies intertwine, Chen Xing and Xiang Shu embark together on a journey where the salvation of everything they know hangs in the balance.

Riverbay Road Mens’ Dormitory (Novel)

From the author of Legend of Exorcism and Dinghai Fusheng Records comes a new modern-day romp! One famous director rents out the rooms in his house to other gay men in hopes of writing more realistic characters for his novel. But can he get along with these very different men long enough for him to finish his story?

After a childhood fractured by parental discord and plagued by the death of his grandparents, Zhang Yuwen is no stranger to making lemons into lemonade. Now twenty-seven years old, the reclusive, gay, and single Zhang Yuwen has taken his lofty inheritance—including a 6-bedroom house on Riverbay Road—all the way to the bank, becoming a multimillionaire movie director and mogul. However, Zhang Yuwen still longs for one thing: to be a famous writer among the likes of Dostoevsky and Kafka. When his contacts at a prestigious publisher refuse to publish his debut novel, calling it “fake” and “contrived,” Zhang Yuwen is left reeling.

Still, all is not lost. If the editor says his two-dimensional characters prove he doesn’t socialize enough, all he needs is a little more interaction with other single, gay men. Easy! He can put up an ad to rent out the rooms in his house and have the men come to him. After all, how much trouble could a handful of other single guys really be?
