Enchantress Amongst Alchemists: Ghost King’s Wife

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Mu Ru Yue, was a successor to her medicinal aristocratic family in Hua Xia. After being murdered by her enemy, she reincarnated in the body of a recently deceased good-for-nothing Miss in the Mu Family of the Martial God Continent, who had been beaten to death. In the throne room, she smilingly received a marriage notice to have a change in marriage to wed the infamous Ghost King from the Kingdom of Zi Yue. It was well-known that the Ghost King was stupid and foolish, with a ghost-like appearance. But who knew that he was actually the most two-faced person? Everyone laughed, thinking that a good-for-nothing was well-matched to a fool, but not in their wildest dreams did they even consider that she was actually a peerless genius in the making. When Mu Ru Yue looked at the man, who had a handsome God-like look, she said, gnashing her teeth, “Ye Wu Chen, you lied to me. How are you a fool at all?” The Ghost King chuckled as he affectionately embraced her. “By your side, I’m willing to be a fool that you can freely order around.”

Miki’s summary

The previous owner of Mu Ru Yue’s body had been poisoned. Because of this, her meridians were blocked, hindering her cultivation, which eventually led to her being known as trash. After being beaten to death, Mu Ru Yue, who had originally been a successor to a medicinal aristocratic family in Hua Xia, reincarnated into her new body. They want to seal my path? I will train to reach the peak of the realms! They give me a foolish prince as my husband? I can make do with him. It would be easier for me to deal with him, rather than with other candidates who would be thrown at me in the future. I shall strive to become powerful enough that nobody will be able to mock or kill me.

Other reviews have said its weaknesses better than I can, I'll just add this:
Using rape, torture and bodily dis-figuration for karmic retribution, to "evil characters" that were only caricatures is a trope that is used by so many stories, I get that. When it is written this cheap and badly though, it lowers the quality of the work.

Spoiler

The adopted sister who actually poisoned the MC only got humiliated by her, but the younger sister, who abused the MC verbally, was attacked by other men while the MC watched and forced by the Ghost King to marry a disfigured fella who has sadistic tendencies and already claimed two lives. For example, that girl called an old man a beggar and the proper response for a man that old, a grandmaster of a sect to boot, is to kick a brat with no innate powers into a tree? Really?

First to rate.

As the editor, I'm bias. I do have reasons for this bias though. This story is better, to me, than Descent of the Phoenix and Demonic King Chases his wife. It's a lot more cuddly, and the OPness of the MC is better written. At the same time, the characters are more expansive, and you even feel some pity for the villains. However, NEVER MESS WITH THE PRETTY FEMALE MC!!!

And I actually do ship the MC and the male lead...

Plus, damn, that male lead has laaaaaayers...

If you're looking for something with a new and unique plot, you've come to the wrong place. But, if you're looking for something to quench that OP, manipulative Female MC, hot guy passion then you've come to the right place. Although it's not really original, it's still a good story and something to snack on while we wait for updates of Chu Wang Fei, Demonic King, and Black Belly Miss etc.

Decent start.

There will be two types of readers who will like this oft-told story of a powerful figure who transmigrated into the body of a good-for-nothing girl:

1. someone who has never read this type of story before and thus would find everything to be interesting, and
2. someone who had read many such stories before and like to read more, but prefer a faster pacing.

For those in (1), this series will serve as a decent introduction to the genre. From the initial 15 chapters, all the usual tropes are touched... more>> upon.

For those in (2), it offers nothing truly groundbreaking but moves along quickly enough so that a seasoned reader won't get bogged down.

The usual events proceed blazingly fast. Within 15 chapters we are introduced to a fallen, powerful woman, her new identity who had a good-for-nothing reputation and limited martial potential, a scheming sister, a cold-hearted royalty fiance, an extremely biased father, a secret magical entity and a handsome stranger who was intrigued by her rough manners.

Since the story is listed as completed, I hope the translation speed would be quick enough to sustain the interests of readers as each chapter is relatively compact. <<less

Story is not very good. Even as a guilty pleasure this story is still not very good. Nothing is explained, there are gaping plot holes, there is no struggle or challenge for the MC, and characters are jaringly extreme. It reads like a outline rather than a complete story.

Xianxia novels tend to reuse the same tropes and characters but are fun in how they go about it. The best ones introduce something unique or demonstrate above avg writing. This story offers nothing new and the writing is below avg. It's... more>> a shameless mary sue where nothing goes wrong for the MC. Mary Sues can be fun in a superhero-esque way. But even superheroes need some struggle to be exciting and there is non to be found in this story. Every time something is needed, conveniently some occurrence happens that drops it into the MC lap the following chapter. The author doesn't even try to create any suspense or proper drama. The MC is always calm, cold, amazing, most beautiful, most talented, and can just rudely do whatever she want because she's amazing.

Characters suffer from universal stupidity and linear thinking. Yes, most Xianxia have a seemingly trash MC who is treated poorly who later becomes OP and makes them regret. While they're cheap and easy villains to prop up the MC they usually still display at least superficial amounts of development. The characters in this story are some of the most painfully one-dimensional characters I have ever read. They're behavior is so linear and extreme that it is jarring and unbelievable.

Nothing is explained or developed properly. Events suddenly happen and are over within 1-2 chapters. The 'tournament arc' happens within a single chapter. Supporting characters conveniently appear, offer maybe a paragraph or two of reasoning for their support, and then are only seen when MC needs something. Development doesn't happen, just the MC rapidly progressing to OP-ness.

This story is too common to waste time on. It doesn't offer anything unique to offset the terrible writing. In a genre flooded with almost identical stories of superior quality, there really is little motivation to trudge through this one. Suggestion for those who like this story but would want something a step up, I would recommend Genius Doctor: Black Bellied Miss. It's almost the same but better in every way. <<less

Yet another female reincarnation story where the MC cruises through the life she picked up after standing up for herself, barely expending any effort to bat away any 'rivals' that might pop up coz she's just that OP, only to run into new ones ... coz.

Again there's nothing original and nothing that really stand out, but it's not intolerable, especially if you're new to the genre. But if you've read 3-4 of them, they're pretty much all the same. 2.5/5

I love the fact she's a cold demon and merciless. This is the first time I'm reading a MC girl CN. But the Romance is too dam weird! Wtf? The so called 'Murderous Demon' kissed with a 10year old you just met? She fell in love to dam easily!! I loved her cold gaze and how she doesn't give a f*ck about anyone but none of these guys are worth for her! Anyways, this quickly changes and she's not cold at all..

The Villains are half ass too. The first... more>> page they are evil then the next couple of moments they turn to a 180 completely and start regretting who've they offended.

I'm really sad because the Romance mostly ruined this! The Author is just sloppy writing for this MC...
Spoiler

Suddenly the older sister who was the main villain is in tears because the prince has other women.. But isn't that natural since he's royalty? And she's crying about it! Wtf after causing a lot of damage to MC this was your breaking point? Then she gets raped by the guy she loved! This is stupid.

The MC husband also has been obviously lying to her that he's a honest and pure king but she still forgives him! I don't like it.

I do like the fact its anti polygamy! We see the perspective of Women being forced to married or being concubine. The feeling of wanting to be first and not sharing their spouse.

I love how she pats her pet beast like a villain. It's like Dr.Evil lol. But she's not evil at all. Even though the Author states her as a cold demon. But her heart is swaying so much emotionally..truly stupid.

This is filled with the most clichéness and predictable ideas...sigh it had good potential too. <<less

I usually only review my favourite novel but I'll make an exception for this one. Basically, Female MC and transported to other world genre is my cup of tea. I do not even mind the almost same plot. This novel positive side is it slightly faster than DKC. However, despite the MC has been poison until couldn't cultivate by the adopted daughter(MTE) making her treated as trash, her fiancee has been snatched by MTE lead to her beaten to death; MTE is still healthy and alive, just been known that... more>> she not virgin and still let to be concubine of the man she love(MC ex-fiancee), her deed of poisoning the MC is still not known to others and she still been treated better by MC family than MC herself(I do not know what happened in thousands of chapter later on though). The short chapter is one thing, the translator teaser for every chapter(thats make it 60 time now) to stop at cliff is quite annoying. Furthermore, adding to the flame of the teaser is when we expected the awesomeness but to be turn off with the continuation of slow path and plain outcome. The only reason I am following this novel is due to the regular update. <<less

The story began off great with a strong female MC that was eager to improve her skills and prove to her 'evil' family that she was not the trash they knew before. The cliche plot line of course.
However,

Spoiler

Once she and the Ghost King meet, the Ghost King completely changes. Where is the cold, arrogant person? All I have ever seen of him is a woeing person that calls around 'wifey' all day long. His personality is dull. He's nice around his wife, mean around other people. Nothing too special about him.

[collapse]
The MC is also dull. She doesn't have a strong trait that keeps you interested in her or something that lets you remember something about her. And neither does she improve or have any changes in her personality. That's not realistic. According to Hume (philosopher), and ego changes even if you think it doesn't. MC doesn't change and remains the same person.
Spoiler

She accepts the marriage to the Ghost King easily. How long have they met? Months? That's hardly anything! She blushes rather easily when she sees him. Isn't it just because the beauty has given her a better impression of him?

[collapse]
The other characters are far too hateful to be real. It's not possible for a person to act so stupidly when the truth is right in front of their eyes. It makes it boring and repetitive to have such characters.
The story is also far too centered on the main characters and their actions. There is no world that is mentioned so far. No other continents.
Spoiler

MC is also far too strong. She defeats everyone at the alchemist's association and is the most talented out of all of them. -.-

[collapse]
There is literally no STRUGGLE that she ever has. Other good Wuxia stories, such as ATG and ISSTH have a ton of character improvement. Chu Feng has also been repeatedly mentioned as a man with average talent, yet he climbed his way to the top with his strong and perservering personality. I don't see any of that amazingness in this story.

Dull characters. Far too cliche plot line. No interesting world. No character improvement. <<less

Sometimes, I wonder how the characters could even connect the evil deeds back to the mc? They hate the mc so much they just blame the mc for every wrong done to them randomly.

Character gets beaten up in the middle of the night by a random stranger: It's all that the mc's fault.
Character's master starts mistreating them: It's all the mc's fault
Characters trip over a pebble on the sidewalk: It's all the mc's fault

Funnily, they actually hit the nail on the head.

So far so good. It is the typical reincarnated-transferred to another body novel where the MC was a good for nothing, ridiculed, scorned, and loses what she has. Then suddenly shit happen... MC become a cold hearted, crafty, peerless genius and all the people's jaw drop to the floor due to shock.

Well I like the MC's personality... Like Black bellied doctor MC but not that cold hearted, but still someone not to be mess with... Male MC so far is currently surrounded by mist, full of mystery.

Translation is good... more>> and done well. Good job TLer's and editors. <<less
