A Gentleman’s Recollections


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As a traitor, Yue Lingxi knew that in order to turn her life around, she had to be loyal to the emperor.

When there were assassins attacking, she stood in front to defend, and when there were corrupt officials causing trouble, she stood at the forefront to protect her fellow soldiers.

But the emperor instead flew into a rage, and there was a chill in the air as he spoke to her.

“You are so diligent. Should I award you a plaque?”

“Your Majesty, serving the emperor faithfully is my duty.”

“Xi Xi, to be loyal to the monarch, one must first love the monarch, do you understand?”

Little Red Riding Hood, who has strong survival skills but fell into the trap of love, versus the Big Bad Wolf who is always ready to pounce.

The female protagonist is not the type of bodyguard, but she is intelligent and tenacious, and not at all weak.

Important matters should be prominently displayed.

This has a dynamic and interesting beginning. A young girl with impeccable memory recall and strategic instincts is in the middle of a battle between two armies. In the chaos she and a high ranking soldier save a little boy and each other. Not enough has occurred to say how the overall story will evolve from there to the situation described in the synopsis. Still the set-up is engaging. Both characters seem honorable and smart. Usually web novels sacrifice one or the other in characters. Hope it can keep up... more>> the excellent characterization and action. <<less

As Youtoon has said above, this story does start with an intriguing plot, as we are thrown onto a battlefield with our female main Yue lingxi. Though the story has not enveloped properly, translator currently at chapter 5 as of time of publication, it has a good setup, with the female leads wits certainly catching your attention. I will rate it a 3 for the time being as nothing worth noting has been translated for me to rate it higher. Certainly however, if the story keeps up at the same... more>> quality that it does currently then I will definitely consider it at least a 4, or even 5?

Give the story a go, while it's still updating it has definitely made a slight impression of me and should do the same for you.

I'm not sure why there are low ratings considering this story is pretty good! It does have a very quick start. There is barely any introduction from the characters as the author probably assumes we've read the prequel.

The storyline is fast-paced and already full of intrigue.

However, just like her prequel, it is an interesting read and I like Chu Xiang, our ML a lot as he does resemble his mother.

I do feel like the progression of the romance is a bit fast. The FL seems to pretend not to notice... more>> the ML's advances or is she just oblivious to them? On the other hand, since the ML is her savior she might think it is right for her to give herself to him? She has very low self-esteem btw and I enjoy seeing how the ML struggles to lift her up.

Looking forward to the completion of the translation. Superb translation. <<less
