This isn't up in the story until the second last chapter, when she presents it to the male lead. It has a specific meaning within the story for the protagonist and represents the central theme of the story. However, you are not told of it until you finish reading the story basically. This is no impact on the story itself.
The Transmigration (more so reincarnation) in this story is mainly used to explain the protagonist's personality and ideals which doesn't not conform to the moral and ethics within the novel universe, while playing no other roles.
The protagonist in this story is one of the more unique one that I've read. She's basically my hero, with her attitude and choice of lifestyle. Definitely the best part of the novel itself. Being able to live the lifestyle that she wants, while showing occasional brilliance when needed to stay safe and protect the ones she cares about.
The MC, Wu Xie, is a doctor in the same organization as Shen Yan Xiao. They are best friends who commonly hangs out possibly due to their loner personalities. As you can tell their occupations by the title of the novels, "Extraordinary godly thief" vs "Extraordinary godly doctor". Wu Xie used to be an veterinarian, but was found by the organization and was made to work as their doctor in return for funding w/e needs she have, of course not like she has much of a choice. As the organization's best thief, Shen Yan Xiao constantly gets injured. And as the organization's best doctor, Wu Xie's responsible for treating most of the agents and thus frequently works with Shen Yan Xiao and gotten to known her.
On a side point, Wu Xie actually has a lot of experience with interacting and working with other people. Not a hermit as some people misunderstands.
When the organization got raided, Shen Yan Xiao sacrificed herself to give an opportunity for Wu Xie to escape, and thus returning Wu Xie favor for treating her all of those times when she was heavily injured during missions. Wu Xie was angry at Shen Yan Xiao for doing so, because as obvious in the first novel Shen Yan Xiao had the opportunities of escaping by herself. This caused her annoying at the smell of blood and over reaction sometimes. Thus begins the two novels.
There are more on the MC and the male lead in "The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady", especially on the male lead, but those are too much of a spoiler.
If you want to know why the male lead is such a jack ass and why he's so obsessed with the MC, reading "The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady" is highly recommended (unfortunately the translation is no where up to that point though).
The weak part of 夜北's novels is the MC's little buddies. Once introduced they never get any real character development. Sometime part of the group in just sitting there not really saying or doing anything. One person in the group is the clown who's always saying and doing stupid things to lightened up the novel. This one is the only one that really have any important in the story itself, the other don't even have to be there. These buddies get ridiculously unreasonable upgrades but never really have any real use; pretty much just allowing them to hang around.
The MC is lovable and relatable. Of the novels I have read, she's probably the closest one actually person. She's not going out of her way to do that right thing or to save the world, nor it does she only care for herself and goes about her own business. She's not a mindless person as in some stories, nor is she so overpowered that she can solve any and all problems.
There overarching story of the world doesn't really only move around her, but it is told as we follow the MC and her role in reaction to everything that is happening in the world.
As for the Transmigration, her past and other life isn't a major point of the story unlike in "My Disciple Died Yet Again". It only serves the role that she isn't from this world and is the cause of everything that happens to her in the story.
The novel is at time funny and at times emotional. The story is well written with good use of foreshadowing and pacing (except the ending).
The romance in the story develops and her relation with various male characters improve. It doesn't follow most story with love at first sight or destined to be together. You get to experience how her relationships change and improve overtimes, and how it turns to love and romance. As a result, it's hard to tell who the male lead ends up being and the second half of the novel.
The story is not very focused on power level progression. The story never relies on her become strong enough to defeat the bad guy. In fact she often isn't the one to solve the problem, she just plays her role in the story. She does becomes more powerful as she changes the body she possesses. Each time she changes her body, it is well tied into the story and not just for the sake of her getting stronger. She never reaches the end of the power spectrum and relies on her strength on the final fight. She simply doesn't her best just as everyone else, and watches as the pieces and cogs that was set up throughout the story comes together.
The story line isn't episodic like "My Disciple Died Yet Again", but is the more concrete of the two.
Both "My Disciple Died Yet Again" and "Cultivating to Become a Great Celestial" suffers most at the ending parts of the novel. As "My Disciple Died Yet Again" ending makes your wonder why anything happened in the first place, when the story could have just started at the end and have everything worked out as good or even better, "Cultivating to Become a Great Celestial" makes it seems like the author can't wait to get the the ending she's written, so she gives random characters unreasonable, abstract and out of place powerups to prepare everyone for the final fight.
"My Disciple Died Yet Again" could have used a better reason for her perform her various missions in the story; perhaps better ties her into the history of the 3 realms as the author probably initially intended.
"Cultivating to Become a Great Celestial" could probably use 60-100 chapters to expand on the immortal realm and better pace the story before the ending.
The entire novel to structured to setup the ending. In fact most of the novel isn't all that great by itself, it's pretty bland actually. Definitely not worth reading if you are not willing to stick it to the end.
The novel can pretty much be divided into 3 part, the present, the past and the conclusion. The first part is relatively lighthearted and calm, with no major conflicts. The second part more serious and emotional. These two part actually seems like 2 different novels, and to be honest, at the time of reading, pretty random.
However, all of these end up setting up the conclusion really well if you could believe. I definitely couldn't help but cry as the novel was reaching the end. It's remembering everything that happen in the novel, no matter how random and meaningless they were at the time, and the epiphany when you realized how each of those events meant for the characters that really delivered for the story.
Personally this kind of progression for a tragedy novel is not a bad choice. Although the early parts of the novel really doesn't deliver very much from an emotion stand point, there nothing like that sudden unexpected punch in the gut.
In summary, read it if you like tragedy and can stick through a reasonably long novel. Else if you are expecting a satisfying experience throughout, this is not worth it.
Also, there is only ever one MC. This much is pretty clear fairly obvious after the initial meeting, and the story doesn't attempt to hide this.
The story is simple and straight forward. Characters are simple and straight forward. Much more so than the premise of the story and the description of the story would suggest.
The romance and feeling between the couple develops quickly and doesn't really change throughout the story. Much of everything that happens is due to the MC not truly understanding the male leads feeling and the fact that the male lead didn't expose his feeling for her until afterwards.
In terms of the incident that the other reviewers wrote about: it wasn't the greatest thing ever, but it wasn't completely horrible. She was trying to put her relationship with the male lead to the test, while happened to rescue someone she looked up to. She has a simple and innocent personality, so everything is not that well thought out. At least you should expect her to, given how she's written.
The novel isn't exactly going to impress you with how descriptive and vivid it was written, but it wasn't bad for say. The story is written with very short chapters, and is not very long in total. Therefore, the pace is very quick and the writing is very simple.
I would somewhat recommend this story if...........
Well, lets just say if I want to describe this story, I would say that is the unfinished. Major events like the sister goes missing happens and at some point the story just completely ignores it and the ending doesn't follow up on any of that. It's pretty random really.
The author obvious started out with a pretty good idea, but didn't have everything planned out. Therefore, at some point, she just didn't know how to follow up on what she's written and just decided to end it.
The author clearly started with many ideas for the story, but Enchantress Amongst Alchemists has many problems, not the least of which are:
Perhaps the best example to this novel's deficiencies is that the final boss have NO name. The novel just refers to the final boss as something equivalent of "super ultra level great beast", and this guy just came out of nowhere. The fight itself is 90% people talking with 10% being the MC setting up some magical array which she learned at a completely randomly time from some completely random person who has no significance what so ever, with exception to the fact that novel mentions that she became really strong at some point for some inexplicable reason that's not explained in the story. And this person also never actually make any cameos in the story.
The author's clearly had many good ideas, but they are just poorly put together. At certain points in the novel you can actually read the author's frustrations in the writing, which becomes very abrupt and rushed. It feels like that author can't wait to end it.
However, everyone has to start some where, and I am actually looking forward to his next novel. Stay to read the humble starting point of one of the better growing authors in this category, this novel is very solid for what it is.
The only thing that can be considered a drawback is probably the author's fetish for making the male lead question his s*xuality and aided masturbation. Hey at least its pretty damn funny.
Tian Qi is a stunning looking girl who's disguising as an enunch in the royal palace. The original reason and her identity is slowly revealed during the story. However, due to her greed and another hidden reason, she missed her opportunity to leave and was stuck serving the emperor even though her two previous masters died.
The story explores her relationship developed with the people she meet, problems arising from her current identity and her beauty, and a variety of hilarious situations she fell into, while solving the mystery about her past.
Although, there are some tragic and tense situations, the story has a happy and generally lighthearted tone. It does not attempt to envoke any overly emotional response and is not very dramatic. The various situations she faces are generally solved quickly and logically.
The story has a very nice pace and is very well written. It is a pretty fun and casual read throughout.
This story is followed in sequel by "Tiao Xiao Ling" which is also pretty good. No translation though.
