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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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!
