Poison Genius Consort

Description

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

Easily cowed and bullied, she was the useless, ugly woman with no talent in medical skills. Supported by millions, he was Tianning’s most respected duke with the power to move all under Heaven. On their wedding day the bridal sedan was carried to the front doors, but the Duke of Qin’s gates were shut tight.

They told her, ‘Come back tomorrow.’

All alone, she walked step-by-step full of pride through the duke’s doors. Little could they imagine, this unattractive good-for-nothing was a beautiful, genius doctor of poisons!

After transmigrating to the past, poisons expert Han Yunxi finds herself on the verge of being married off to the country’s second most powerful man, the Duke of Qin. Her future life seems set–except her husband is an unfeeling ice block, her in-laws think she’s a eyesore, the empress dowager wants to use her for her own goals, and poison-related plots abound.

Alone, the intelligent (and sensible) Yunxi must carve her own space from the intricate web of court intrigue and the jianghu, relying on her words, wits, and wisdom to survive. Adapt when necessary, use force when required; to survive and thrive is the name of the game to a prosperous life.

No matter what, she’ll prove her right to live!

It's tasteful and interesting. I'm not much for the intrigue or the ideas about "face" their society has. I prefer when honor is a bit more natural and reasonable, while being less about... human ideas and whatever society they ended up with.

Still an amazing series for me. Even though I disregard some of the major concepts and content, the tone kept makes it easily digestible to me.

This series is good. Not one of my all-time favorites, but still enjoyable and easy to read, and better than most.

I recommend you try it if you like:

  • Self-sufficient, level-headed, strong-willed female main characters.
  • A main character who is very skilled, but not OP.
  • Mystery, martial arts, and political intrigue.
You should also enjoy (or at least be ok with):

... more>>
  • A romance that develops VERY slowly.
  • Drama between females. (the usual shade-throwing, name-calling, face-shaming, etc between noble women and petty family members)
  • A main character who has an almost magical special ability that no one else has.
  • A main character who is constantly struggling and being beaten down each time she rises up.
I don't recommend it if you want:

  • Romantic fluff
  • A domineering, OP, triumphant, or brutal main character
  • Cultivation/leveling up
  • A story that moves quickly (I'm at chapter 144 and we still haven't seen much romantic/character development)
With that being said, here's a summary of the story:

  • Han Yunxi is a genius poison doctor in a modern era. After her unexpected death, she is reborn in the body of a "useless trash" daughter of a medical family, about to be married to the cold and aloof Duke of Qin, Long Feiye. However, her new husband refuses to even meet her at the door, her new in-laws hate her, her old relatives despise her, and she's been drawn into an ongoing feud within the palace... with only her unique poison skills help her.
Characters:

  • Han Yunxi is level-headed, stubborn, and a realist. She does arrive in the past with a "cheat ability" (her futuristic poison detox/detection system), but she is not OP. Despite her poison abilities, she is faced with constant trials and struggles in the form of social schemes and physical danger. She has zero martial arts ability, her schemes don't always work as planned, she refuses to kill ruthlessly because of her previous occupation as a doctor, and she has little to no help from others. Overall, she is acceptable to read and her struggles are easy to understand.
  • Long Feiye is often called a "ice block," and it's no joke -- he's one of the most aloof, uncaring, and cold main characters ever. Seriously. It's not like "oh look how tsundere he is, cute," it's more like "he legitimately doesn't care if she dies." Don't expect him to be a warm main character, at least not for at least 150 chapters.
Overall, this is one of the better and more realistic novels in the "genius female reborn as trash daughter in ancient era" genre. I enjoyed it and read all 144 translated chapters in two days. I recommend it and would give it 4.5 stars if I could. <<less

When I first read through the summary I found the fact that she herself walked through the duke's door after being previously shut out was very bold and highly interesting. And the story really didn't let me down.

Interesting story aside, this one actually feels refreshing as our MC is smart and sensible, not arrogant nor bloodthirsty and most of all she is not OP (though she does have something cheat-like that I'm not able to come to term with yet).

We already got told that the male lead is an unfeeling... more>> ice block. He is not only unfeeling and uncaring toward our MC but toward anyone, which I think makes his character consistent. And for an ice block to melt, it will take some time and effort, not just one or two surprises from our female lead.

Anyway some may say that the story is too slow, but if you consider that it's got 1360 chapters and is ongoing, I think that it's ok to lean back and wait to see how it plays out?

I liked it so much that I just had to write a review (my first ever) so give it a try.

Ps. The translators did a really good job and it's a very smooth read. <<less

I enjoyed this enough to read from beginning to end twice while suffering through MTL. One of the few series where the MC is not OP in everything and the romance is not instant.

Despite being married, the romance isn't finalized until many years. It's more like dating during those years. While her poison treatment skills are excellent, she still has to go through a slow level up process. In fact, all her skills have a nice slow level up. Because of her weaker skills, she makes a good pairing with her husband. All the characters have full fledged personalities, even the villains. The plot is also well fleshed out and all the mysteries are solved by the end.

Because poison is the highlight of the story, once the main poison villain is removed, the rest of the story stagnates a bit. At chapter 1368, the story ends on a cliff hanger, so I'm dying to see if there will be be a second volume. I also hope poison will come back as the main focus.

I'm giving this 4.5 star, i'll be generous and round it to 5. If you're tired of ruthless, cold, unfeeling, disturbed female MC, then this novel is for you

MC is very humane in her ways, and despite being poison expert she is not arrogant at all. She's no push over or cry baby or a baggage for her love interest. In contrary, she is independent minded, smart and optimistic. She is the more action less talking MC which is always a plus. She is not full circle OP as she... more>> is no martial arts expert and she literally have no political power or standings so sometimes this gave ways for male love interest to help her. YET she is no damsel in distress.

Romance is on the slow snail pace side bcz the male is a block of ice and dense af (basically not a normal male human, he must have minus EQ)

Villains are as 2D as they come. <<less

Okay-ish. The MC who was a futuristic medical expert of medicines and acupuncture, killed in a very mundane manner. She found herself transported to a different world and time. As of ch23, there is little explained about her new body's past, but she retained her medical knowledge and cheat abilities -ahem-, futuristic augments: a medical diagnostic system embedded in her brain and a pocket dimension for poisons and antidotes (!?).

Right off the start the MC finds herself being humiliated on her wedding day as the other party's family was... more>> hostile to the marriage. Her own family was seemingly uncaring of her as well. In the 20+ chapters translated, the so-called husband is hardly likeable himself: we're told he's a cold person and unfriendly to women and his only redeeming features are his fantastic physique and high noble rank.

It would be difficult to recommend this story to those new to the genre, it's because the antagonistic cast of this story is quite overbearing, so much so that a new reader to this sort of story would find it annoying beyond belief. One scheme was resolved in a comedic manner and that pretty much kept me reading, and I hope it continues in the same way; because otherwise there's little to differentiate this from other 'woman-transmigrated' type stories.

Each chapter is quite short, but the translator has taken good care of the text and added footnotes to explain the various ranks and conventions. Italics and inflection were given to add dramatic emphasis, it shows the translator's own investment in the story. <<less

Rating this 2... For now. I might change it later.

I have some very high expectations for rebirths/transmigration novels like this one, especially ones with medicine /poison tag since I work in the medical field and what's the first thing a poison expert do? She treats Staphylococcus (a bacteria) as poison... And even claimed that the ancients use it to disfigure the face. Sure it can cause the wound to be infected but there are worse bacteria that can cause a wound to be infected... more>> and even rot, disfiguring the face (how they're sure it was caused by Staphylococcus I'm not sure) but that's just me being uptight... And an ass. I actually applaud the author for getting the grape-like appearance right. I can let it pass, I came here to enjoy the novel, not read a medical book...

The reason I gave this a 2(for now) is because I am ve~~ry irritated with the characters... Except for the female MC, the poisoned general and that imperial physician who helped her, every single one of them is irritating and mostly stupid. But I have high hopes for the male MC, for now I hate you.

I'm putting this novel aside for now, maybe wait a hundred chapters more then binge read. I hope it gets better. *fingers crossed* <<less

Among the transmigrate Female Lead MC novels, this novel seems to be one of my favorites. The MC is not arrogant or blood maniac. I think the author did a good job to create a MC who is likeable and cute. She doesn't like to bully or kill but she is not a frail flower who always need the help of Male MC.

The translator and editor are doing a very good job. In short, i am enjoying to follow the adventures of Han Yunxi and i am waiting for... more>> the new releases. :) <<less

This novel is definitely one I actually try to keep up to date with even with lack of time for other novels. The MC Yunxi is not so OP that every troubling situation she encounters immediately resolves itself. She uses her own knowledge to get herself out of sticky situations (especially with those family members of hers).

The romance is slow and believable, with no instant attraction between the two leads. Sure most dislike the ML (nicknamed ice-cube) in the first 100 chapters or so but he slowly does warm up... more>> to the reader. It looks like it will be a while yet before anything will happen between the two. They are pretty busy anyway trying to solve cases and watch out for the people around them.

I would recommend this novel for anyone who doesn't want to read about an OP MC who is no pushover.

The translator also makes reading the novel very enjoyable. (Her teasers for each chapter really bring out the characters "personalities" hahahaha) <<less

Just started reading. It's an interesting story and I appreciate that the main character is not a undercover agent in her previous life. While she does have an out-of-place "hidden mechanism" in her body that acts like a storage and has a poison warning system, it does not make her OP.

A part of me wishes she could just leave the city and just travel on her own. But I guess her goal is to just simply reside in the the palace and not have to worry about food and... more>> living necessities.

I really hate the male lead. And the other male interests don't really appeal to me either. Hoping character development gets better as it goes.

I rated this 3 because I'm willing to continue reading, even though I'm not raving about it. Hope that makes sense. <<less

Finally, a normal and smart MC!! She's not an assassin, super spy, medicine specialist genius, or super spy assassin medicine specialist genius. MC is just a normal doctor that specialize in poison (albeit with futuristic style).

... more>>
Spoiler

she's dead because her superior at work throw a big book to her head because she refused to treat an important person before anyone else. She's not ruthless femMC that kills people left and right, she's actually kind hearted, but she will defend herself if someone bully her.

[collapse]

The romance is really slow, but every small dokidoki moment is worth waiting. You might be want to jump on the wrong ship at the start.

Very recommended if you're wanna take a breathe from ruthless assassin troupe. <<less

Will rate in the future after more chapters build up.

This starts off quite well for a transmigration story where we can see a bit into the personality of the MC before she transmigrates. Her actions during her wedding was most interesting and to be honest, the most daring I've seen in a society who holds customs and traditions very highly. She knows her situation and does her best to work with what is given without letting go of her principles. The family she marries into is a typical Duke... more>> family who looks down on her while her husband is rather cold.

Some may dislike the male lead for how he treats our MC; he is cold, and he clearly doesn't care too much about her. However, as I've read numerous other female MC stories, I can safely say that he isn't too bad considering the fact that he isn't actively trying to sabotage her life. +1 for that. From spoilers that I gleaned,
Spoiler

He does eventually warm up to our female lead and becomes rather nice/protective but it does take a while. Like beyond 200 chapters kind of slow. I don't want to spoil for anyone

[collapse]

The technology/cheat that she got is a little OP and I'm not sure what kind of modern world she came from to have medical tech like that but it doesn't distract from the story too much. It just gives her an extra edge for dealing with other things. Granted it's a very convenient little alarm that does way too many things.

Translation was done well and I can see how dedicated they are in bringing this novel for us readers. <<less

This novel is definitely your choice if you like intelligent characters. The female character is cunning and has a natural flair for politics. Male lead is cold but surprisingly romantic on the inside.

Pace of the novel is a little slow and you're in for a hell lot of drama. Seriously.

The only thing I don't like about this novel is the never ending chapters. I love the novel, really, but I would have preferred it to be shorter.

P.s. the original novel is just as good as the translate version, if not,... more>> better! <<less

I've already written a full review on this on my Wordpress account! However, now that I've made an account in NU, I still feel like I should still write something here.

I definitely love this novel! If not for her abnormal detox system, the MC here isn't OP. She lacked martial arts. She's not some reincarnated genius assassin, but was once only a doctor. There are no initial revenge-revenge, shoot the heavens whatever plots here. She is still definitely human. (Only her detox system is abnormal lol Still can't get over... more>> it! It's the only thing I'm not convinced in this novel!)

Anyway, ahem ahem, the detox aside, there are still a lot of things to love about PGC. I love the characters, the character growth, the universe, and the damn ML! HAHAHA That ice-cube man. I think, in all of the cold heartless MLs a lot of authors are trying to portray, no one could get as close to the genuine cold ML as this one! But! He may be cold, yeah, but for me, because of this coldness, he is the one with the cutest development! XDD

PGC has a really slow development, yes, and a lot of overbearing characters along the way. So one might be easily discouraged with that, and I don't blame you! I think it even break the record for me for having the most annoying characters! If not for MC, I would've dropped it too. The saving grace for me on this one is definitely the lead. Despite all the troubles and the chaotic world thrown at her, she was able to beat them with her wit, courage, and willpower! Being one originally born in the modern world, she even sympathised with the readers with how unbearable and illogical these 'ancient characters' are! HAHAHA

Note that YunXi, the MC, doesn't have powerful backups. So she was forced to suffer everything at the start, and had even resigned herself to believe only in herself and her capabilities to save herself. While her detox system might be OP, the circumstances of MC doesn't make her OP. Time and time, she gets doubted. Time and time, she has to prove herself. It takes a while before she gets recognition, born from her genuine efforts ofc. Yes, she had a strong ML! But what use is his strength when he's as cold as ice? ML knew more than anyone the rules of the jungle, knew that if MC had to survive, she had to learn how to defend herself. And learning to defend herself she did! And she earns my respect for it.

So, even with the slow development, as long as there IS development, I don't mind it so long as something valuable could be gotten from it. And for me, PGC did not disappoint in this aspect (at least up until this chapter. I am enthusiastically waiting the exciting things to come, and so will not comment and try to remain unbiased as I've not read them yet).

The writer here is a good writer, and the translators nothing less! So my reading experience for PGC was really great. They were able to profoundly describe the characters, explicitly or not, and detail development that is neither rushed nor very slow. The characters' reactions and movements were true to their character, logical and realistic, albeit some of them hateful. There were none too OP characters, and their strength were borderline believable, unlike some reincarnated plots out there with authors stacking every epithets they could think of on their leads.

I hint a lot of mysteries lurk around the corner, and eagerly await for them to be exposed. But right now, PGC is a thrilling ride that one cannot miss. If you're in to transmigrated plots with too OP characters, brace yourselves since PGC isn't one like that. And if you're one on the masochistic side looking for persecuted MCs, this one isn't one either... hn, maybe only at the start? lol!

Anyhow, for me, PGC just nicely smacked right there in the middle. The leads are loveable that, as mentioned, even with the unfortunate circumstances and detestable side insect- I mean characters, I lauded them for the actions they took next to fight it. I guess I should laud author for this! XDD

Right now, with Kenkyo and HBAG, unless some unforeseen circumstances later on made me change my mind, this one easily tops on my list. <<less

So I read ahead using the raws and I like the fact that the romance is quite believable, not like most novels where the male lead will have some unexplainable interest in the female lead. He actually takes very long to actually fall for her (Which some people may not like). Their relationship is also not very clear cut because the author writes about the little actions/ progress in the relationship but never clearly states it which makes it seem all the more realistic. I also like the fact that... more>> she sometimes retaliates but is not entirely vicious or without reason, let's say when the Empress Dowager etc all treat her badly, she doesn't randomly poison them just for revenge. But she does teach others a lesson such as the princess (But she eventually healed her anyway).

Also in the earlier chapters, comments were hating on the male lead which reminded me that I also did not like the male lead at first. I have no idea when he grew on me! At this point of the novel where I'm at (Late 100s), he actually likes her [Not explicitly stated but shown - another thing I like about this novel] but has not fully trusted her or come to love her yet. <<less

The mc here acts like a typical Chinese light novel harem member. I had to drop the story because the mc is like a housewife with some medical knowledge. I did not see the mc being independent like other female lead stories that I read, so far.

Also, the mc is supposed to be a poison genius, so I figured she would used poison offensively to protect herself. She has used poison a few times, and two of the times were non-lethal poison pranks. During an arc,... more>> she tried saving someone, but somehow it turned into everyone trying to killed her. So, I figured she would retaliate by using poison, but nope, she used poison once or twice, no matter how much she was getting tortured or her life was on the line. The way the story is going, the "cold" husband will save the damsel-in-, I mean the mc most of the time <<less

Although her inter-dimensional storage space and cooking unit stored in her body seems atypical and out of place to the world she transmigrated into (Like regular ancient china, not a fantasy world). It is a crucial lifesaving detail in a world where poison is a family favorite way of dealing with our poor Mc. Mc is like a cat. Sure she's smaller than you and easily gets bullied but not without you escaping with bloody scratches and an ear barely hanging on.

MC is a smart protagonist. MC isn't entirely formidable, she has her flaws and weakness but she overcomes them with her knowledge (poison, medicine) from her post transmigrate self. I really like her character development, its realistic. I've read other similar stories but most MCs are either too powerful or too revengeful, which makes the story arc too predictable and boring.

Don't expect a lot of romance as of ch102, the romance is slow building as its a long novel and theres 1000+ chapters left. Male lead is likeable in... more>> my books, he is the tsundere type– slow and indirect show of affections. Not complaining yet from the lack of romance as storyline is interesting thus far. I've been thoroughly enjoying MC's antics and adventures.

Translations are done really well. (No matter how good the original story is, I will drop it if the eng trans are horrible). Conversation/dialogues are very witty. 5x chapters per week, a fairly good schedule. Chapters are long and adequate in quenching my thirst for more. I hope to see till the end of the entire novel! <<less

It was great at first, but I'm sorry to say I got bored after awhile. I have read a lot of transmigration stories, and this one doesn't really stand out from the rest. It's a little slow for my taste. I'm hoping the more I read, the more interesting it'll get. But for the moment, I won't get my hopes up.

Just started reading, but I'm hooked already!

Even though the female lead is stuck in a highly unfavourable situation, she bargains her way through! She's unyielding, fiercly independent, and optimistic--you won't be frustrated with her because she takes matters into her own hands.

There seems to be a reason for her transmigration, because her skills as a genius doctor/poison expert is continuously put to use.

... more>> The translation is also superb! Anyone who likes the novel (GDBBM) 'Genius Doctor: Black Belly Miss' would like this too for the medical element.

The story is a bit more lighthearted than GDBBM. The clever protagonist twists the schemes of others so she's the one with the last laugh. There's some comedy to it and although some scenes seem a tad bit cliche and forced its not bad at all because the author still balances it out with elements of surprise--the story just sucks you in!

Lastly I do think there is some sci-fi element to this. The protagonist has a special skill which gives her
Spoiler

An android-like quality and boosts her medical prowess. It's a special system in her brain that can detect poison, store objects, and even store medical information which basically makes her a super powered medical robot!!

[collapse]

From an outsider's point of view, it would seem like she has some kind of super power but that's really not the case.

Anyway, read for yourself!! It's just that good! 10 stars!
