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.
