[Yu Wo, who doesn’t have a typical pen name and doesn’t have a typical brain, wrote an atypical book, ‘The Legend of the Sun Knight’, and inside the book there is an atypical main character who meets a bunch of atypical side characters, unfolding a legend that is entirely atypical.]

Here, I must first thank my good friend Shuǐ Quán, who connected me with the Spring Publishing House and even helped me check for mistakes in the book with much toil. Thanks for your trouble, noble Shuǐ Quán!

I’m also extremely grateful to the adorable boss of the Spring Publishing House. Sorry to bother you with my repeated trips to the publishing house and even make you wait this long for the complete draft. I’m really sorry about that.

I, Yu Wo, have actually always wanted to write on the subject of knights.

The word “knight” is simply one of the many nouns that the heart of every maiden has fantasised about before. Incidentally, “prince” is a noun that is usually even more popular in maidens’ fantasies.

Ahem! In conclusion, even Yu Wo has experienced before the rose-colored fantasies of a maiden. (Hey! You’re not allowed to show that look of suspicion!) So, I decided to write this book about knights.

However, as Yu Wo has accidentally passed the phase of having a maiden’s rose-colored fantasies while writing this book, thus, this book has turned from a typical legend of a knight into an atypical novel unmasking the cruel realities of a knight.

From the start, I had already decided in my mind that I wanted to write about a setting that was “conventional, yet striking”. Hence the “God of Light” came into play. The appearance of the “Church of the God of Light” then followed. Since it is a religion of light, of course the first thing that pops into your head is the incomparably bright sun above our heads. This is how our “Sun Knight” came to be. After that, using a lousy number, the “twelve” holy knights appeared.

Therefore, the rough framework for the Legend of the Sun Knight was completed, and Yu Wo started helping everyone reveal the true faces of the knights. Inside the book, many of the problems depicted of a knight are actually genuine, such as weapon repair fees. I’m not sure if this has given everyone a glimpse of what it’s actually like to be a knight?

If someone has become disillusioned with the word ‘knight’ after reading the book, please don’t come and find me…

P.S.: Going off-topic, as the author, I actually wrote more than forty thousand words before I actually started thinking about the main character’s name. Has everyone done that before? The main character actually went through half of the book before his name was mentioned. Poor Grisia!

Following that, everyone should be able to count and see:

In the “good, warm-hearted” faction, there is Sun, Storm, Earth, Leaf, and Blaze.

In the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction, there is Judge and Ice.

Obviously, one can tell that within the book, not all of the Twelve Holy Knights have been mentioned. This reveals an important message…

There will be a sequel to this book!

So remember to buy the next book, the book after that, and the book following that—

Ahem! What Yu Wo really wanted to explain is that the Legend of the Sun Knight is not a one-book novel, and will be a series of novels.

The main character will always be our Sun. However, every time he will encounter different plights and missions (and sufferings). Of course, this will unfold into several (series of) different stories!

At this point, I hope that everyone will like Grisia Sun’s legend of adventures (read: sufferings).

Also, everyone is welcome to visit Yu Wo’s website. I often have a hobby of organizing character popularity polls, to see which characters people like. Yu Wo would like to let the characters that are popular appear more often in the story, as well as on the cover pages. So if anyone is very fond of a certain character, please come place a vote!

  1. God I love this story ….
    it’s even funnier than 1/2 prince!
    how’s that possible?!

  2. Crimson knight

    I want to see the volume 2 it’s gonna a hell way funnier.

  3. ^_^ good intro~ there are still missing knight but it’s fine i guess~ can’t wait to see volume 2~

  4. Should have put the real character’s character in (*) next to the character’s intor. Would have been even more useful (and funnier).

    • Shadow Rebirth

      This was translated directly from the novel, not added in by us, so it’s something that we can’t really change XD We’ll definitely add their real personalities when we update the Characters page though.

  5. bitterswtt

    I have to agree with Sara.
    This book is funnier than 1/2 Prince. However I do enjoy reading both novels.

  6. Thank you very much!!!

  7. The author has such a great imagination. It really makes me think about the difference between who I really am in my head v. the version of myself that I try to present to others. The difference is not as radical as Grisia, of course, nor as funny.

  8. Ah~ If I could read Chinese only for a day, I would read all of the novels without stop. XD lol. But alas, I am Chinese illiterate. orz

    Still, excellent books, and I am so glad that you guys are willing to translate them. <3

  9. dollyfishe

    well i lost the point but it’s nice to know what the author thinking
    ;D

    cant wait for the next chapter … will it be next month ?

  10. Prince? Knight? How did I did not notice the simliarities!? Maybe my eyes were blinded by too much awesome.

  11. so funny she talks like she writes lol dragons saint brigadine description = lol

    p.s.

    could remove the (series of) bit if you like and it would still make sense

  12. Uhhh…

    “However, as Yu Wo has accidentally passed the phase of having a maiden’s rose colored fantasies while writing this book, thus, this book has turned from a typical legend of a knight into an atypical novel unmasking the cruel realities of a knight.”

    Holy tense difficulties. Umm, it would sound better if you got rid of both of the ‘has’. As it is I don’t think it is technically wrong, I suppose it depends if you were writing in the past tense or past perfect tense…? I’m not sure. I just know that sentence rubs me the wrong way.

    On the other hand, I can definitively tell you it would be a good idea to get rid of ‘thus’. However and thus are both transition words typically used by themselves, it doesn’t make sense to use them both in the same sentence. And thank you for the translation.

  13. Gee, i love so much that novel, i really wanna learn chinese just to read it faster
    Really good job translating it, i hope the next chapter come soon

  14. Asura_gurdeep

    out of curiosity, is there gana be a pdf release sort of like the first 1/2 prince noval???

    • Yes there is. But we are seriously short of pdf designers so….it might be some time before it is release. Recruiting pdf designers…

  15. Asura_gurdeep

    also, how about posting the Novel Illustrations, it sort of feels like im missing out.

    • We don’t have the novel illustration ourselves >_>. Please check the novel synopses for the book cover if you want to see some pictures.

I believe i read the manhua before..well, some of it, it didn’t seem to be interesting. but since i read the translated novel…guess what? I AM ADDICTED! thanks a lot for the hard work! I kinda wish there is something can do to help. too bad I don’t read or speak another language except Filipino and English…. :(

  17. Nitely Rain

  18. Kittychan H

  19. The Legend of The Sun Knight was really fun! And I have no clue how she is going to top it in the sequel.
