At first the plot was very interesting-- she suffered a lot at the hands of her step-mother in her previous life. There was a lot of angst knowing that her brother also suffered just because of a selfish girl's unwillingness to marry. I was impressed with how she handled the scheme that ruined her life before and how she got the attention of Zhao Jie. However, right after ... more>>

, the flow of the story became somewhat less exciting.

It was still able to hold its own with how the storyline portrayed WL and ZJ's innocent and fluffy relationship considering she was just a child. As she grew up, I started to dislike the MC more and more.

I just can't get over how she broke off her engagement with Song Hui the last minute.

Other guys would've surely chased the MC 'till the end of the earth, but this move of his really made me tear up.

In addition to that, I didn't like how she handled Li Song when Chang Hong got injured. Sure, you pay them back tenfold or heck even a hundred or thousandfold. HOWEVER,

you have to make sure you've got the right person instead of suddenly just stabbing them with a hairpin!

At this point, I was really disappointed with WL. I feel like she was on a power trip and had the mentality of a 12 year old child when she actually lived until 15 or so in her previous life. Seeing someone else taking a punishment like that for someone else can really make a reader feel dissatisfied and a bit of heartache as well. After that scene, I seriously felt bad for LS and started to root for him instead of the ML. His character's depth is just... wow.

Overall, I think this story would be a good read if I haven't read Chu Wang Fei, Princess Wei Yang, and especially The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage. They set my standards way too high for a revenge c-novel. This story did have a lot of potential, but the author's writing seemed too shallow with how WL was always described beautifully and every action she took to maintain her beauty. I get that this story appeals to girls and is very shoujo-istic but it seemed too excessive at this point, especially when WL wasn't that likeable. After pushing to read more chapters, I just couldn't do it anymore. Moreover, I did skip to the extra chapters instead and was extremely satisfied with it more! I'm a fan of LS so I'm happy that he got to be with the girl he likes. ehem.

I would recommend this novel to those who haven't read most of the titles I've listed above. This wouldn't hold a candle to those novels but at least it is a lighthearted and short read that will fill you with fluffy emotions. It just wasn't my cup of tea, but I'm certain a lot of people would like this story. <<less

I’ll start off by saying it was really good at first.

It had a lot of weird shortcomings, but I was able to see past that.

I don’t normally react even if the ML is kind of obsessed or stalker-ish, but the ML in this movel just takes the cake. There wasn’t any kind of “romance development” in this novel where the ML was gradually falling for the MC. The author justified by saying it was teasing st first until it became serious. That’s just lazy writing. He barely even appears lol.

Don’t even get me started with the power levels. The author didn’t put much emphasis on those and just randomly says what colour they are or their enemy is and it is a very shallow part of the novel.

The pacing was excellent up until the Yan country arc. It kind of fell behind at Thousand Beast City.. The war was exciting, but I find it ridiculous. The plot is moving on its own because they needed to find 8 pieces of the map. Sooner or later, it’ll be dry. After them getting the 5th map, I was getting tired of it.

I thought I could pull through for a few hundred more chapters. However, I couldn’t take it anymore when she rescued the little emperor of the Buckwheat Kingdom. I’m sorry, that sounded harsh but it simply went against her character. Sure, she had misgivings with the Condor country already, however that wasn’t her method of bringing down her enemy. She was reckless and even exposed their trump cards too soon. When they retreated, enemies were suddenly on guard. Even using the might of the Fire country as an emperor, it was too annoying for me to read. I can’t anymore. I’m so tired. I know she’ll do some mahor face slapping yet again, however she’s becoming too soft. She barely knew the little emperor. Ugh. I think I’m done with romance novels for now at least.
