Love in Another Life: My Gentle Tyrant


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

He is Xi Liang’s legendary emperor: a decisive and ruthless king; a man of supreme wisdom; a cunning strategist.

According to legend, he once conferred the love meant for the three thousand concubines in his harem onto one woman, while the world watched in envy.

According to legend, he once executed a hundred people for her, turning the palace into a purgatory overnight.

According to legend, he ultimately sentenced that same woman to death by execution…

A conspiracy that swept through the country resulted in her tragic end. This lifetime seems to be a repeat of her past life. Can she escape the clutches of fate to attain true love in this life? In both lives, she was the Emperor’s wife, but is that ruthless man really her true love mandated by Heaven?

Did she really die, just like that?

In the end, beyond the veil of lies and mysteries, who exactly was she? Was she a woman that he truly loved, or was she merely a chess piece to be used in his political machinations?

The stories passed onto later generations remain fraught with conflicting opinions.

I usually only read fluffy and sweet novels but I gave this a try because the summary sounded interesting.

Like what NoonaFangirl has said, the angst is real and I stopped reading for a while because I was too scared to continue. (I can't be the only one right?) But the translator announced in the newest chapter that there won't be angst for awhile now that the first part is over. Phew!! Thank you for giving me the courage to continue.

So far the translation is good and the writing is beautiful!... more>> I'm really liking the female main character and want to give her a virtual hug. <<less

Writing a review to encourage more readers to read! (I'll update once more chapters are up.)

The ANGST IS REAL in this one. If you're up for some pain and suffering but with a happy ending, start reading this. The translations are good!

Here is the Translator's note that explains the theme of the story better than I do:

"This is not a story about a strong, overpowered female lead who time-travels and kicks the asses of everyone in ancient China. It is not a story about revenge. This is a story... more>> about two people who, in their second lives, go through a lot of shit to finally get together. 😊

This book is considered quite 经典 (a classic) in China, but it’s also famous for its angst from beginning to the end. The ending, however, is very sweet and satisfying, so the entire journey is very cathartic. ❤

Generally, if you like your romance to be very intense and will make you cry as much as it’ll make you laugh, you’ll probably enjoy this novel. <<less
