The complete series is now available on DramaFever. Read more about the exciting drama.
Nirvana in Fire's story, based on the novel Lanya Bang about revenge, romance, and intrigue, is often compared to the French classic Count of Monte Cristo, but it contains even more eye-catching fanfare with fabulous costumes, thrilling martial arts, and strategies that would match anything from the Book of War. No wonder the acclaimed series with its impeccable cinematography and performance rose to be the #1 fan favorite when it was released in late 2015 in China.
After escaping a crushing defeat resulting in the deaths of his father and fellow soldiers, young Lin Shu (Hu Ge) survived with a new name and a new face. It took him years to rebuild his health and unleash his revenge. His plan would take him to China's royal palace, where he again meets his first love (Liu Tao), who does not recognize him, as well as the treacherous adversaries who had conspired against his father. Will he vanquish his enemies and regain his clan's honor? Can he help his friend, Prince Jing (Wang Kai), to win the throne?
During the 6th century, war broke out between the feudal Northern Wei and Southern Liang dynasties, leading Liang's General Lin Xie to take his only child, the 19-year-old Lin Shu, to battle. Unexpectedly, Lin Xie was framed by a political rival, causing the unjust deaths of seventy thousand Chiyan army soldiers, just after they drove off the hostile Wei forces. After barely escaping with his life, Lin Shu establishes the Jiangzuo Alliance with the help of Langya Hall and makes a name for himself as Mei Changsu, chief of the martial arts world. Under the alias of Su Zhe, he returns to the capital of Liang 12 years on to overturn the injustices imposed on the Chiyan Army and secretly assist his friend, the unfavored Prince Jing, in his battle for the throne.
With the complete series loaded and ready to watch, it's a perfect binge for the weekend. Are you ready?
