Seven Seas Entertainment Reveals Cover for Eighth and Final Volume of Heaven Official’s Blessing

Publisher Seven Seas Entertainment recently shared their cover for the eighth and final volume of Heaven Official’s Blessing. Along with the cover spread came more details about the book’s three editions and what consumers can expect in each one.

The cover artwork for Heaven Official’s Blessing Vol. 8 comes from series regular tai3_3, and was previously used as the cover for the sixth and final volume of the Chinese edition from PinSin Studios. Interior artwork for the book will be drawn by ZeldaCW, who has provided all the black-and-white artwork for the English edition of the series to date.

All three editions of Heaven Official’s Blessing Vol. 8 will be released on November 21, 2023.

A warning to consumers that as of the day of this posting (August 28th), Barnes & Noble’s website uses a graphic that lists all the Special Edition content as included with their book. This is incorrect, and the Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition includes only the additional fold-out poster.

Seven Seas Entertainment’s synopsis on the back cover is as follows, verifying the inclusion of the previously published extra chapters taking place after the main story’s conclusion:

A Battle for Freedom, A Love for the Ages.

White No-Face’s mask is off, and the final conflict has begun. Deep in the ancient caverns and lava flows of Mount Tonglu, Xie Lian must face the one whose hatred has plagued him for centuries—but this time, he won’t have to do it alone. His beloved, Hua Cheng, has spent his long existence amassing the power to protect him, and now with their feelings for each other out in the open, they have all the more reason to fight for survival.

In this thrilling conclusion to Heaven Official’s Blessing, can Xie Lian and Hua Cheng triumph against an all-powerful foe?

Also included in this final volume are five bonus tales of romance, celebration, and adventure.

The posts came with teaser images of the bonus content, with blurred versions of artwork that will be new and exclusive to the Seven Seas Entertainment editions. The artist’s names are being withheld until the books are released in November.

Written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu, Heaven Official’s Blessing is the author’s third series and one of Seven Seas Entertainment’s debut danmei series. This marks their third completed danmei series, with The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System and Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation concluding previously. Heaven Official’s Blessing has a manhua adaptation, an audio drama, a currently shelved live-action adaptation, and a donghua (animated) adaptation, with the latter’s second season scheduled to debut this Fall.

Seven Seas Entertainment also reminded buyers that both the Barnes & Noble Exclusive and Special Edition are limited print runs, and once sold out, no more will be printed. This comes as a notable warning as copies of the company’s previous special editions, particularly The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System Vol. 4 Special Edition, sold out almost immediately at most major US retailers and even left some consumers with unfulfilled preorders.

Preorders for all three print editions of Heaven Official’s Blessing Vol. 8 are available now from most major retailers. Historically for Seven Seas Entertainment, digital preorders are made available closer to the release date.
