New Series—Cin Heung: Life is Strange

We’re glad to announce our third licensed series, Cin Heung: Life is Strange! Another short story added to our repertoire, we hope all of you will find this quick read enjoyable and inspirational.

Learn more about the series here!


Cin Heung, a smart and capable salaried person from Hong Kong, has always only cared about nothing but work. On one faithful day, things started changing as she begins to realize what truly is important in life. Is having a high corporate position more important, or are family, friends, and love what she truly longs for?

Cin Heung would change herself, and for that she was willing to muster the courage to endure her failures. For every turn in life, she shall learn her lessons and come to accept herself as who she truly was.


Hello everyone!

We are Verdant Lore, a team of (mostly) translators working on translating novels from Chinese to English. Our mission consists primarily of bringing Hong-Kong-based web novels to a wider, English-speaking audience. On top of that, we also have Taiwanese novels going on.

We’d love to share with you stories that are created in Hong Kong and Taiwan, so do check us out if the notion of exploring Hong Kong’s nuanced culture and values ever so slightly piques your interest.

Together with our launch, we introduce you to our two new licensed series, Tales of Distraction, and The God Slaying Sword Brynhildr. We’ve just started out, so expect more series to come in the future!

For chapter updates and other info, be sure to follow us on Instagram (@verdant_lore). You can also find our team on the Verdant Lore discord server here.
