Novel Summary

A “xiongzhai”, or “haunted house” in English context, is a house where someone dies an unexpected death. Legend has it that if a person dies in such a manner, they would be resentful because their destined lifespan has not yet finished. Their ghosts will then linger around, causing strange things to occur in the place.

Jiang Shuo and Qin Yiheng are a peculiar duo of real estate investors who purchase well-known haunted houses at low prices. After exorcising the ghosts and evil spirits, they sell the houses again, each time earning great profits. Their ‘business’ is doing exceptionally well! However, the lucky duo never expect that they are being followed by some strange people. Surrounding them, a big conspiracy is quietly being harboured. The mysterious real estate collaborator Six Finger and the ‘non-human’ partner Yuan Zhen comes one after another; many extremely dangerous haunted houses keep appearing. Things become increasingly difficult to handle, sometimes even bring them to the verge of death. At this point, they realise they are trapped in a deadly net!

In the end, what conspiracy is hidden there? Is it true that those haunted houses’ ghosts and feng shui¹ want them dead? Who is the Mysterious Figure behind all this?

¹ 风水 [Feng Shui], also known as Chinese geomancy, is a practice originating from ancient China, which claims to use energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment. Believed to be a pseudo-science and still widely used in many East Asian countries today, feng shui’s most common application is to orient homes and buildings in an auspicious manner.

  1. I'm not sure what to say about this story, so far for the first volume is just one of the duo telling about his story with this business. How to say... It's just really average story. Since you're being told what happened instead of being part of it, the story feels empty. There's no active scenes, so this story is not good, but not too bad, just plain average. 3/5 max unless the writing improves at later volumes.
