A story of time-travel. Sly and cunning, she unexpectedly became a sickly noble lady whose fiancé is merciless and demotes her to a lowly concubine. She sneers and bravely breaks off the engagement. To hell with scumbags, marry heirs to lords, blind the courts with her brilliance.

But, my Lord, we agreed that we are only partnering to scheme against others, when did you start to treat acting as real? Hey, hey, don’t touch me.

The Lord smiled slyly, “Your hands are too cold, let me help you warm them… Your feet are cold too, let me help you warm them.”

“Why don’t you just say that my whole body is cold and you need to warm it all up”, Murong Xue said indignantly.

The Lord nodded, “Good idea!”

Murong Xue – speechless. Hey hey hey, where, where are you putting your hands?

Fourteen year-old female protagonist overpowerrs all. It's you typical reincarnation story, the characters are flat and everything and anything is all about the MC. Nothing really exciting as the MC moves from one plot after the other.

Think of it as Harlequin Romance meets kung-fu in Ancient China. But for a light read, it's okay.

Hmmm I dont know how to feel about this novel exactly. I'm currently reading the raws right now and I'm not sure if I'm going to continue the series.

Spoiler

It was interesting but then there are inconsistencies in the MC's personality or how she veiws things. For example she comes accross a total stranger found floating in the river and insists that she must save him because saving someone is more important than building 7 buddhist towers or something along that line. After this she also sees assassins/robbers attacking someone and stops to help.


But she is fine with watching her Aunt kill and burn a child and his mother, finds it entertaining and even eats candied hawthornes afterward. Her eyes were actually shining while she was relating how interesting this story was going to be when it would spread the next day. So now I'm seeing her as a sociopath, which is interesting in its own way. But I'd rather the author keep her character consistent.


Don't go on about how saving a life is so important, rescuing strangers she doesn't know who were being attacked, then in 50 or so chapters afterwards watch her Aunt bash in a child's head and burn his body while finding it entertaining. ≫. ≪!-- Also there were no dangers that would have happened to her whatsoever if she tried to interfere. Meh it was just a bit disturbing for me, especially when she wanted to eat candy afterwards @@.


So I'm a weee bit confused on how the author wants us to view the heroine. But now I'm leaning more towards disturbed individual, who god knows what she did in her previous life, whose morals come and go depending on the situation and if it would further the plotline or not. The strangers she saved were 1) Famous prince from another country, 2) Ye YI Chen's father. People she didn't save were side characters that are disposable. Well I'll stick to the story a bit more to see how it goes. But can't say I have a very good view of the heroine now.

This novel is really different from other "time-travel" story I read before. Although like other story her power, her knowledge upper from other (but not the highest) still the same.


The one that I love and maybe that's the spoiler, until now, I don't know who is the Lord that in the "description" above (I read 255 chapters in 2 days - RAW, oh God my head). And the MC is really dense, make 'them' act so cute, hahaha~ You must read it, to know my frustration feel when other man appeared just to catch her attention, she just go with it, don't know about mmmm, best friend feeling (OF COURSE NOT!) JEALOUS.


One I love again is the MC has a lovely brother that will always there for her (although he is in the barrack and a little bit stupid. #SometimesIsmellsomethingfishyhere).


I really recommended this for you if you like the time travel story with MC female lead from modern days. I guarantee you it's different from other. (Although I still read them like : Genius doctor black belly miss, the demonic chase his wife (this really recommended before I read this story), The good for nothing seventh young lady, the favorite golden fei, the mistake marriage match a generation of military counselor, Descent of the phoenix, evil emperor wild consort, and etc, I forgot hahaha~)

This novel walks on the edge of cringy and mediocre. Everything that happens, happens because the author says so. There is no explanation, no rhythm, no method to the madness. Ex: (did not happen, just what it feels like) oh look, there's a bad guy, let's take this gun out of my pocket and shoot him; oh look, he's still alive, let's interrogate him; oh look, he's actually a part of a huge plot in the background, what a surprise. It's as if the main character has a million trump... more>> cards in her back pocket. This style is forcing me to think that the main character just has a lightsaber in her bionic leg, because that's how outrageous these events have gone. Of course, what kind of novel would this be without a sharp tongue. And that's just what the main character has, it's so sharp that every other character has their IQ lowered by 70. This style reminds me of a Fairly Odd Parents episode; in that episode, Timmy wishes that he could be the smartest person in the world. However, what happened was not that he became smarter, instead, everyone else became dumb as sh*t. (Back to the story) The dialogue, story, and characters does not make the reader think, "Wow, that's pretty smart of them. " Instead, the reader thinks, "These people are f**king retarded. " The author also uses brute force in order to move the story along. Ex:
Spoiler

When Yang YI or whatever forced the main character to become her concubine by actually trying to manhandle her.

There is no reason behind any action these characters take. It's just DO IT, MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. I would be surprised if anyone actually made it past chapter 15.

While I found the story interesting at the start, at chapter 95 I lost pretty much all interest.

... more>>
Spoiler

For all that she is so cunning and intelligent, she doesn't really seem to make any moves towards her enemies. Every time they pull something, she counters them. If they do something particularly displeasing, like trying to kill her, she reacts immediately (you could almost call it impulsively, since she then proceeds to try and kill them. Then they suffer. But ultimately get saved in the end, and then she'll leave them alone without doing anything afterwards).


In fact, almost none of them dissapear. Especially that Prince, Yiyeng (?). I was already tired of him after the first few chapters, but even 95 chapters later the marriage is still not broken off. While I certainly think that a character that continuously has to defeat new enemies that pop up one after another is also bad, having every enemy remain also isn't a very good option. At this rate, her enemies just keep growing and collude with each other to bring her down.


Not to mention that her own personality apparently grows inconsistent as well according to the other reviewer.


Well, as I said before. I specifically stopped reading because of what happened around chapter 95. Simply because once again, she managed to corner that annoying Princess but let her go. Instead of just finishing the job, she takes her time to stab her in the limbs repeatedly, while she's in a booby-trapped dungeon/cave. You'd think she learned her lesson not to play around with her after she escaped the first time.


This also isn't the only time she plays around, like with her Aunt, or grandmother, idk. She leaves them behind while they're beaten up to die, but of course her uncle returns and calls for a doctor (despite her attempts at blockading the entire house?).

MC is no Mary Sue, but I love her for it. It gives me genuine reason to worry for her when she encounters issues because I don't automatically assume she can face slap or poison her way out of everything. So I don't know what half these other reviews are talking about.

M. C. Is cool, she's no pro martial artist and she is physically weak but the martial arts she does know helps her scrape by compared to other women who don't practice martial arts at all. So she's... more>> admirable to others on that front. Her recurring illness (by poison) is her weak spot and people try to use it against her meaning that she isn't flawless and without openings, and this makes her more human are a character and adds depth versus your regular Mary Sue. However she is indeed sly like the title indicates because she has very clever ways of handling problems using logic instead of sheer force. (Like public shaming people into behaving). Also it's a nice touch that her only living family, her brother is on her side about everything, although he is also young and becomes a weakness that drags her down as of now.

It is interesting to read but there is no cultivation. This falls into the category of normal time travel. Is the "sly" part in the title to trick the readers?

Spoiler

There are several holes in the plot. How did she get rich enough to fly on a private jet. Did it belong to her friend or not?

Why was she so experienced in fighting dogs and possess knowledge on martial arts (what kind of martial art did she study? Military self defense?)

[collapse]

The translators get the characters mixed up sometimes, he turns into she, even the names get mixed up. So far the entire main household has died except for the female protagonist.

This starts off as a stereotypical transmigration into a weak noble lady getting her engagement messed up. In this case, she's demoted from main wife to concubine.

It reminds me of Chu Wang FeI a bit in that Jing Wang is similar to Chen Wang. But that's about it, this guy is so persistent in getting the MC (not in a good way by chapter 11 at least) that you wonder... What the heck kind of eyesight does all the people there have to think he's a good guy! He's... more>> petty!

Thankfully, our MC acts as decisively as Princess WeI Yang (also a great story) instead of bidding her time, gaining revenge through the 'noble lady' way. Brother is a nice touch, we know she has support from at least one family member. Male MC has made a cameo I think, but since I can't read ahead, I'll assume he's a typical black belly guy based on synopsis.

Translation is ok, but the names get mixed up. Like, a lot. You can still figure out who is who by context but it's quite noticeable for me. <<less

October 10, 2016 - 2 stars chapter 29

I really had high hopes for this story. But after the initial strong-handedness of the MC, she kind of just became the typical heroine in a time travel/reincarnation/transmigration novel. This quickly became one of the multiple seemingly duplicated stories that are now out concerning reincarnation. Although this in itself isn't a terrible thing, the translation quality dropped about half-way making it quite difficult to understand what was actually occurring in the story. To be honest, after reading chapter 29 and not much story... more>> progression (and giant plot-holes and convenient world reasoning dropping from the sky), I'm still confused about what's actually happening or why it's happening. It feels like the author is making the story up as they go and the translator is making it even harder to understand with the iffy translations (although I do thank the translator for translating this story; it's just that the translations are in dire need of some editing and revising).

I'm sorry if my review seems a bit confusing. At this point, I would say read the story at your own risk. If you like the typical reincarnation stories and don't mind ambiguous text, then more power to you. I might revisit the story again at a later date to reassess the novel, but for now, my opinion of this novel remains low.

March 15, 2017- 5 stars chapter 77
I went back after more chapters of the story were translated and after chapter 29, the translated chapters have improved drastically and so has the way that the story is conveyed. It seems as if most of the confusion that I felt from the story was attributed to content lost in poor translation. Now that the translation has improved I would recommend to plow through the poorly translated chapters that last until chapter 29 or so. The story gets WAY WAY WAY better.

This is well-paced (plot moves quickly) so you don't get bored and there are updates almost daily. It is a stereotypical transmigration story, but the MC does not waste time in showing her cleverness. I like that she's a bit ruthless. Characters seem human with their arrogance and contradictory personalities (ruthless but soft).

For a female reincarnation story, it's okay but nothing to write home about. The MC is strong physically and mentally, allowing her to easily retaliate against anyone who wrongs her. With the ML backing her, it's pretty much smooth sailing from chapter 1.

But with all these similar stories popping up, everything just starts to blur. From their names to her cold poison, back story, it's pretty much a rehash of every other series out there, but if you read it as a stand alone, it's not too shabby. For... more>> me, the easiest series to confuse this with is EAA since the translations started around the same time and update within a few hours of each other as well. 2. 5/5 <<less

It's a GOOD story, but only in the beginning.

The farther you read, the more you get piss and annoy!! REALLY? girl, you said "Sly and cunning" REALLY? Where is your brain - I can't make out what she (the MC) thinking anymore.

Spoiler

She (MC) tried to kill someone by letting them have thair own death, WTF? like beat them half death and lets them be... yeah and so you all could guess it - their make out alive - that really not make ANY sense! Why don't you just put the sword in your hand through their chest and that's it. If you what want them death then just stab them to death OK?

Kind of undecided how to rate this story. It's no masterpiece like Princess WeI Yang or Chu Wang FeI but it's a nice, easy read. The plot moves quickly (unlike the previously mentioned stories) and the heroine has a refreshingly supportive brother (even if he's a bit on the stupid side). The heroine is very decisive and firm in her judgment and I like how she's rather straightforward. The male lead (when he shows up) is very black-bellied and his interactions with her are kind of hilarious and cute because... more>> most of his moves go right over her head.

To summarize: Would definitely suggest if you like this genre, want something moving at a faster clip, and aren't too picky.
