Dear readers, 

Happy Lunar New Year! The Year of the Rabbit! Do we have any bunnies in the house?   I hope you’re all having a safe and productive 2023! Today, I have interviewed Choco Lily! Choco Lily has been reading on our site for years! I recalled six years ago, she wanted to write a novel about us, and asked if I could be part of her story.

I, of course, said yes! I ended up getting a pervy role, but I quite like it. Hehe. It’s called beauty appreciation! *flips hair*

Here is a snippet:

If you’re interested, read it here*wink wink* 

Without further ado, here is the interview!

1. How did you discover volarenovels?

I first discovered Volare using the Novelupdates site, chasing after a Chinese transmigrated novel. After that, I stayed for other novels in Volare, and got roped into their discord site. Discord allowed me to make friends with translators, editors and other fellow readers with the same hobby!


2. What inspired you to create Voltaire Dynasty?

This… starts from a joke? With a little… okay, I admit, a lot...

We have a new novel!! It’s called, Physician, Not a Consort. Initially, this was a project that I was going to translate after finishing Unruly Phoenix Xiaoyao. But due to many factors, I no longer had time, so I got a team to help me. 

I would like to thank Cosy, Ri, Mazu, Chai, Felis, Elaine and House for their hard work. House and Elaine will be finishing the novel!

Without further ado, here’s the synopsis:

The modern day doctor Lin Haihai has transmigrated into the body of the sixth princess consort. The woman who had been mistreated her whole life was going to be divorced by her husband, the Sixth Prince, to make room for his childhood lover. Lin Haihai couldn't care less. All she wanted was to start her own hospital and focus on her career. Equipped with her knowledge as a 21st century woman, she soon won over the hearts of the common people, and perhaps a few men's. She didn't need love, of course, or so she thought. Fate had other plans for her, and she found herself falling for a man she shouldn't...

Dear readers, 

I have AMAZING news. A hardcore, relentless, obsessed reader of ours emailed us a few months ago offering to restore ALL the comments from the old site. This means, the comments that were posted on disqus from 2-5 years ago are now viewable!!

As a software engineer, she wrote multiple emails trying to convince us it was worth the trouble. I quote, “Re-reading the novels with comments will certainly be an enjoyable experience. Especially for new users... who had not read the previous comments.

I am just an avid reader who wants to obsessively restore around 234,000 comments posted by other readers on volare. Even if each and every one of those comments is just a simple "Thank you translator", I still want to restore them.

It wasn’t that we did not want to restore the comments, but it was soooooooo much work. However, this insane reader was persistent and ended up spending weeks mapping all the old url to the new ones. 

We are incredibly lucky to have someone who loves our novels so much. 

Now, it is...

Hey everyone! We have a new novel launching today! The name of the novel is called 《一見鍾情,毒寵絕色小嬌妻》. However, it’s too ridiculous to use the actual name “Love at First Sight: Pampering the Remarkably Beautiful Delicate Wife.” Haha. Our translator, Olivia, has decided to call it “Their Love Stories”.

Without further ado, here is the synopsis:

Mo Suqing woke up one morning to find a stranger on the bed beside her and decided to accept the handsome guy's offer of marriage on the spot. What seemed to be a rash decision to get over with her ex turned out to be the love of her life. However, dark secrets began to come to light one by one as she learned more about the man. Will they be able to get through all the obstacles presented in their way? Meanwhile, the other characters were also writing their own love stories…

You can read the first 12 chapters here! Their Love Stories will be released daily!

Thoughts from translator: This is the first time I translate something heavy with slang or cultural words and phrases, which,...

We are back with another interview! This time, I have interviewed our awesome Jimmi and our brainy BPC team!! Without further ado, here are the questions:

1. What do you like most about BPC/ROTH?

2. What quote has always stuck with you?

3. If you could be any character in a novel, what type of role would you want? 

4. If time wasn’t an issue and you had forever to master a skill, what skill would you master?


For Ye Ci, the happiest thing in the world for her was a chance to right all her past wrongs.

She walked down a dark path, abandoning all for the sake of an empty glory in a game, leading to her own demise. Suddenly Ye Ci reincarnates back into a time when she still had her parents' love. For the sake of her family and a new beginning, she began her life as a professional gamer. She's no longer a Human Sorceress, she plays as an Elven Huntress. Read ROTH here! 

Featuring Jimminx, the translator of ROTH

1. What do I like the most about ROTH? Hmmmm....... Probably the fact that it balances things going on IRL with...
