From Easy Going Scans:

The Sun Knight is a man who has shining golden hair, sky blue eyes, a compassionate nature, and a brilliant smile. He is the spokesperson for the God of Light, the captain of the Twelve Holy Knights, and (some say) the man closest to perfection. Beneath the veneer of the Sun Knight, however, lies a very different sort of character...

Note: PR!'s translation also includes several short stories about the characters as well as an extra volume called "Unbeatable" about how Neo and Aldrizzt met.

An unexpected one

I must say I didn't expect how this series has turn out in term of character development and story plot in the good sense of term.
It's a fun and easy novel to read and the first two books were what you could have expected, but then it became different the more you read the series. The humor didn't die along the way, but you will still get some poignant moment and the plot flow become similar to a suspense novel where unexpected twists and truths got slowly revealed.

If you really think that this, was one of the best novels ever written, you probably need to read more. Try Moby-Dick, The Great Gatsby, The Old Man and the Sea or at least something, if somehow you, like Joey Tribbiani... errr... had sex in high school instead of reading.

The Legend of Sun Knight is witty, creative, funny with solid cast of characters. One of better one in Asian light novel (if you compare this to the boring LMS, Arc, etc etc). But, yeah, this is not one of the greatest novel ever written. Not even remotely.

So, I'll give it an 8 for a good enjoyable read.

I was a bit sceptical for a while before I started the novel. I had already read 1/2 Prince - both the manhwa and the novel and LotSK - the manhwa and had so-so to bad expectations for this one however... Was I wrong!?

It`s really well done - funny, cute, easy to follow and as a whole unexpectedly entertaining, The main charaters are likable and the story has a lot of twists - well about that... some of them didn`t quite made sense but whatever. Sun grew on me and I definitelly think of him as one of my fav male characters(I don`t usually go for his type of personality LOL)
I highly recommend this novel to any fan of its genres and tropes smile

My absolute favourite

This is seriously my favorite thing to read of all time. It's funny, witty, wonderfully satirical (not like those "parody" anime that fall into the same traps they make fun of) and surprisingly complex. I haven't found anything else quite like it even though I'm an avid fan of most genres of manga/anime/light novels. Something that really makes this work stand out IMO is the theme of duality that runs throughout; all the characters are the exact opposite of being one dimensional, and it is extremely interesting to see the various facets of their personalities and character they are characterized with and how different they can be. The main character Grisia Sun is one of the most complex yet interesting characters I've ever seen portrayed in an anime/manga/light novel series. He represents all good and benevolence and pure kindness, and shows it really well. Except, he's also narcissistic, lazy, manipulative while still having the capability to actually be a good person (at least towards the other Knights... Sometimes)

Even the plot is quite well thought out, with no loose ends -- seemingly insignificant things from the start do actually play parts later on, making for a coherent and detailed reading experience. Even though it sounds a bit like I'm praising LSK as a literary masterpiece though, it's not. It's just a really good light-hearted read with surprising depth that I think anyone would enjoy.

To the males: yes, this is classified as shoujo, but it's actually a bit misleading since there are literally no distinguishable shoujo elements (not even romance) which I can find at all, coming from a former mega shoujo fan.

Sersiously, everyone should read it (including you). 10 is not enough to describe how awesome it is (if this is considered a 10, then almost literally everything else I've read is probably a 7 or under, and I've read loads of stuff from almost every genre.).

This is just amazing! Usually novels with a first person perspective tends to be boring but the main character makes a great narrator! This novel was the one to make me into an avid Yu Wo fan. I read a lot of her novels and I have to say this one is the best.
The translations are great enough to understand the puns and humor. But if you are confident in your Chinese then I suggest reading this in Chinese.This novel is the best!
Even at this minute I am checking for a new chapter.

this is the kind of novel you would want to read over & over & over & over again

then after rereading it a few hundred times till you even memorize the side characters and dream of being a holy knight with them, you search through the internet for everyyy fanfic you get your hands on, this ranks the same as the Legendary Moonlight Sculptor

One of the best novels ever written

Yu wo's Legend of Sun Knight is perhaps one of the best novels I've ever read. And I've read a massive amount of books. I spent pretty much my whole life reading. I can not describe how amazing it really is without insulting a few (alot) people. Honestly, you've got to at least be slightly above average intelligence to appreaciate this for all its worth. The plot seems stunninly simple at times, yet if you look a little deeper, you'll see that its not.

As a writer I am truly inspired by Yu Wo's ability to make such a vivid and realistic world. LSK is Amazing! Its so neat and precise, with rarely a loose end in sight. The more you read it, the more you get sucked in (which in my case is something that hardly happens)

This really needs more love. Lolz.

I'll keep it short and simple,
this is the kind of novel that makes you want to strangle your friends while screaming "YOU HAVE GOT TO READ THIS!, IT'S SO FUNNY AND AWESOME THAT IT HURTS"

I haven't finished the series yet, but I'm absolutely sure: this novel is one of the rarest things (be it novel, manga, anime, movie, music, anything, really) I want to press to my breast, and tattoo every single word on my back.
The stories seem simple, but they can't be any further from it. The characters are well developed and the backbone of the series. The way things are unfolded before us is ranging from really clever to mindblowing. Every little thing matters, every little action has its consequences.

Sadly I can't rate this series over 10, so that have to be enough.

I really enjoy this series, I love it. From my wanting to read it, i even forced myself to learn chinese (I originally only knew how to speak chinese), had relatives buy the series (and other works done by the author) in china and bring it to the US, and read it three times

I had first seen the manga for this series, because since I found it really interesting, I did some research and learned it was adapted from a chinese novel. I searched for translations and read them, but the translations weren't enough, so i found chinese raws and slowly, bit by bit, using google translate to read out phrases, to finish the series, and now am also able to read chinese, and i began reading all of the other novels by this author (no kill, 1/2 prince, GOD, eclipse hunter, no hero, and anything else i can find).

I would definitely recommend this series, the author combined so many aspects like humor and plot together so well, sometimes it had me laughing till the point my sister came to my room and told me to shut up, and other times i was jumping up and down in my chair, It made me want to read more...enough to learn to read in a new language, i had even skipped an entire nights of sleep reading it.
