A Mistaken Marriage Match: A Generation of Military Counselor


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

She is an honorably retired SWAT officer with meritorious deeds and is a dashing detective who solves cases like a god.

One day, a strange golden board with eight divinatory trigrams brings her to a different world, where she is bestowed as a gift to a general’s manor.

He is a grim god of war whose power overwhelms six countries and the defender-general of the state with military power in his hands. An imperial edict brought him a delicate concubine. He turned and left. After returning, his second in command and soldiers ignored him. Instead, they kept on saying, “What does madam think?”

When has the general’s manor changed its owner?

Solving cases, training soldiers, night attacks, suppressing bandits, street fights, counter-terrorism operations, naval battles – one after another appeared on stage. She played with flourish, yet he was unable to resist even a little.

I feel complicated about this novel. Honestly, I really enjoyed the plot and I also liked strong female lead novel type. But in this novel, it's really hard for me to love MC character. Sometimes she is too dense, too arrogant, often doesn't give a d**n about other people's feeling, and also easy to throw a fit. ML is the type of cold indifferent man who despise woman but in end he fall for MC who is different and stronger than any other woman.

The story itself has many potentials but... more>> author seems a bit rush to end the story earlier.


1. I want to see more of "Bird of Prey" team in action. Too bad they only appear in abduction case of empress's uncle and pirate's case.

2. I also want see more scene about Su Ling and Gu Yun after Gu Yun decides to stay with Su Ling (ex: their wedding). Too bad there is no such scene.

3. Many cases is abruptly end with a little clue and minim process. Sometimes the aftermath is also unclear, for example: the case of infant abduction involving Ao Jie (what happen with the baby? Is he safe or what?).


Despite that, the author done a good job describing elite's training process and I also enjoy their improvement.

About the ending.


Gu Yun and Su Ling will have a daughter and their daughter will be MC in another "a mistaken marriage match" installment : the pirate's daughter. Looking forward to read it in the future.

I wish Su Yu, Ao Tian, and Mu Cang will have a happy ending too.

it's a good one!

basic cold skeptical ML, OP female protagonist who is values lives over victory (as she was previously in SWAT)

If you're here for the love, might not be a good read for you. Take her til last few chapters to get together with the man.

But if you're like me and here for OP female protagonist then yes you will love how she proves herself.

Are you tired of xianxia predictable plot?

Do you Hate over-bearing male MC with harem that seems to just kill everyone that lands on his path all by himself? Looking for something different for a change?

Look no further... This is the complete opposite of any common xianxia plot. First of, the MC is a girl... In a weak body (relatively speaking), who commands an army in order to save said army. With pretty good comedic romance to boot.

So yeah, no harem....

This is the best shoujo soul transmigration/reincarnation to ancient dynasty series out there. It really is.

There is practically no magic. (Wuxia exists though). There is tons of romance, but its the fun kind of romance. The MC is head strong, and actually strong. Its extremely entertaining in many ways, including strategy, tactics, comedic romance between 2 tsunderes (yeah, you never seen that before), and strong/uplifting MC's.

Its great. I recommend it. You see, when I hate something I can write so much about it. But when I love something, there is... more>> soo much to say, that you can't really put words to describe how great it is.

Yup. <<less

The beginning seem promising SWAT leader, detective, Lara Croft look alike but after the training episode thing get down hill fast
... more>>

Where the F* in the SWAT she learn sword fighting? Pretty sure morden army make hand to hand combat and small arm the main course now

What happened to all the other *side* characters? Why her best friends suddenly wnat to get married? She doesn't want to comeback to morden time any more? And character suddenly pushed out or disappeared, side story make no connection and even the story make no connection between each other.

At the beginning the Female lead is intelligent beautiful cool type. She some what keep her intelligence but after awhile she became the typical dumb cute female lead. Where's all the training and morden knowledge she got go? Down the rabbit hole?
And all the #overbearing #cantexpressidea male is getting overused.

a very underestimated and underrated title.

absolutely above superficial mainstream attractions in terms of both, characters AND fighting. (Except the dumb dudes who keep looking down oh her are annoying.)

plus there’s the parallel Record of Washed Grievances happening at the same time from the point of view of her friend, which is very unique.

Our female MC here is the type you don't want to mess with. She has the prowess to command people and emerge victorious in situations where the ancient people see no hope. Also, those who grew feelings for the MC are such fine lads and most of the characters are likable in my opinion. I especially liked those under the MC's command, when their doubts turns to awe then respect, gold.

Am like "wew" while reading this and upon reaching the 43th, I say "more." There's this feeling upon reaching the... more>> later parts that it was rushed in order to just put an end on the story thus, I think this shouldn't just end at 43. Or maybe that's just me. Anyway, a good read. <<less

Meh. Not quite what I was hoping for. Not bad, but not really that different when you get down to it. In this novel, instead of a male power fantasy, it is a female power/romance fantasy. The romance is cute I guess; yet also really annoying at times. The whole misunderstandings cliche is overused and draws away from the novel for example. The things the female MC does simply don't match up with what she should be capable of performing. She definitely shouldn't be better at military stratagem then the... more>> War Lord. Of course, that's how it always goes in these novels. People in power who should totally be better at something then the MC are instead inferior for whatever reason. In all, it isn't bad as stated before. But it is not different, unique, or special. People hype on it because it features a female lead and has some more focused romantic plot points. It really felt like "A Step Into the Past" (which was also ok) but with a female MC.

To be fair, seeing all the staggeringly positive reviews made me put too much faith into the novel before beginning to read which may have altered my enjoyment of the novel. Give it a try, but don't go in thinking that is the best and most unique novel you'll ever read... it isn't. <<less

I am in love with the MC.

The story is quite long and hard to understand on some points, but all in all it got me going. I sat down put on my seatbelt on because this is just a roller coaster ride you would'nt forget.

The MC is admirable, although she is transmigrated, she worked hard to be who she is right now. She is pretty much the 'hard work beats talent'

She is also quite OP, but it is reasonable:
Of course, one is she remembers her past life... more>> and the other is...

the bing lian sword. Even though she is OP she is still quite lovable by Su Ling, and can t help but be protective of her. Chapters near 29 is my fav


She is confident on her decisions and other's opinions doesn't matter as long as she attained her goal for the good and correct justice.

As you read further you will appreciate the author's work. It is probably made with thorough research about the traditional and modern military. Some gets confusing, but take note, there are 3 stories on the same dimensional world, I have no idea how arduous it took a toll to make. I'm pretty much hooked on this story so ill probably read the other works too because the side stories are interesting.

Of course the translator did an amazing job, he/she probably had a hard time doing it because the story is not your typical cnovel. It is mixed with strategies, training terms, detective roads, etc. even I had to reread paragraphs by paragraphs, imagine translating it?!

The translator 'nutty' explained that he/she has to make a new sentences or paragraphs to make the readers understand the context well. Thanks so much!

I also appreciate that this is continued by a new translator since nutty is quite busy ♥ and he/she is open about it <<less

Beginning was awesome. I loved Gu Yan's strength and her capability, especially when she was showing the Su soldiers who was boss. The investigation stuff was boring and towards the end it was super boring. I personally though Gu Yan would have been better off with Ao Tian, but sadly no.

The characters' thoughts, actions and especially interactions never fail to make me laugh, especially the way MC handles others *cough*Mu Yi*cough*. She is strong-willed, interesting, badass and very smart.

She is certainly dense but not to the point where she is oblivious of everyone's feelings *spoiler on untranslated chapters*

She is just too set on returning to the modern world to consider romantic feelings. However when the time calls to confront it (Suling's feelings for her), she does so in a straightforward manner.


Definitely one of the best novels on my list.

This is the second novel of the original series and my favourite among the entire A Mistaken Marriage Match collection.

... more>>

The original series tells the story of 3 sisters from Hao Yue whose parents were murdered, clearing the way for mercenaries to forcibly transport them to Qiong Yue as gifts to 3 prominent men. As tributes the sisters are downgraded to concubine status, disabling them from ever becoming wives.

While taking shelter from the rain, the sisters decide to disfigure their faces and commit suicide to escape their fate. The mercenaries attempt to save them. Eldest sister Qing Ling and youngest sister Qing Mo die, (the souls of modern- day Forensic Investigator Zhuo Qing and Captain Gu Yun transmigrate into their bodies), while second sister Qing Feng survives.

The sisters are drugged unconscious the rest of the way, causing a major plot twist which would explain the first part of the title.

Each novel covers one sister's POV:

  1. A Mistaken Marriage Match: Record of Washed Grievances (plot twist)
  2. A Mistaken Marriage Match: A Generation of Military Counselors (youngest sister Qing Mo / Captain Gu Yun)
  3. A Mistaken Marriage Match: Mysteries in the Imperial Harem (plot twist)

So far so good. Many people seem to prefer her best friend in the first novel over her, but Gu Yun is definitely my favorite of the two - possibly because she gets more chances to let her military ability shine. She's funny, stubborn, strict, and more than a little airheaded when it comes to romance.

All the characters are masterfully fleshed out, which I appreciated. My favorite parts are whenever she's training her recruits and the humor inherent.


1 thousand leapfrogs, lol

Hi, this is my first time to make a review.

I LOVE this story much. They are really cute couple. At first, I just hope she will fall in love first to the male main character but in the end, he is the one who fall in love first, hahaha I just remember, and I forgot the chapter, he said that it's karma because he despised woman, he gifted by heaven a violent woman, hahahaha, that's really hilarious because every time he near her, he always get injured.

I really recommended this... more>> story, although the translation is not end, it's worth to waiting. Just wish Nutty-san and L3D-san can finish the translation.

LOVE GU YUN & SU LING. Hohohohoho~ <<less

I love MC attitude. She is a trained law enforcer who got transported to this world.

In the ancient world, she uses the strategies, combat knowledge she knows to mold her own squad. She's just badass, enough said. ^_^

Being a woman in ancient military hierarchy is unheard of I guess, but her result speak for itself.

This is the first time I read a Mistaken Marriage Match installment. Haha. I read this first before the first book about Zhou Qing and the Prime Minister. Oh well. It can be a stand-alone, but there are still some points that might bring you a 'huh' if you did not read the other books (1 and 3)

Ahhh!!! I finished this for only 2 days (considering I have classes). Now I want to binge read the other books too. Still, I need to restrain myself! The 3rd book is... more>> much more longer than this. E. The 4th book's translation is still not finished..

I want to know if there's a Su successor (Gu Yun and Su Ling's son) and a crown successor (did Qing Feng gave birth to a son? Who became the crown prince?)

  1. Spoiler

    the only thing I know is Zhou Qing gave birth to a twin boy and girl

Unlike many other stories where respect is commanded by power and bullying, this is a great story where the MC leads by example.

Great story with a kickass MC heroine. I really do like the fact that she didn’t quite conform to the times, and used her knowledge and experience to make her own path in a all man’s world. It’s also quite nice that as tough as nails as she is, she still the same type of cop personality as she was and is all about keeping her squad/team/soldiers safe,... more>> where the current times all the soldiers are basically cannon fodder. Great story. Really can’t wait to see more. I’m also glad that up to Ch 12, it hasn’t been sickenly lovey dovey. Basically, up to ch 12, she has a cat and dog relationship w/ her “husband” and they fight all the time. <<less

I don't know what to say about this. I have a mix feeling regarding this novel. I love this story because of the OP MC and HATE IT because the grammatical errors in the novel in the middle of the story. At first there wasn't much obvious errors but later on the quality of translation went downhill. For example, there is one dialogue that I don't know whether to laugh or cry: "kitchen gives them dinner". Translator, did you just literally translate from chinese?? Weren't you trying to say that... more>> the kitchen helpers are required to pass the food to the soldiers?? It irks me to no end that sometimes I can't really follow what the MC is trying to say or even any of the characters were trying to say. Translator really need a grammar checker or an editor. Overall, thanks for your hard work translator but you need help. <<less

As of Ch16-4.

An interesting story. The premise isn't unique: modern age female officer transmigrated into a weak woman's body in an unfamiliar world. Her headstrong and unique skills forces her to have conflicts with her arranged husband, who is a war hero of his own right.

What stands out in this story is the characterization of the MC. Whereas other titles like "Descent of the Phoenix" basically had a tsundere MC who can't help but be attracted to the male lead quickly, Gu Yun is determined to hold her own and... more>> break the mold of the domestic woman expected of her.

The main focus of the early chapters is how Gu Yun shocks the male-dominated military household and staff of the male lead, eventually getting their respect and even their hopes for her to be their general's true wife. The male lead on the other hand isn't quite as developed thus far except for his brusque manner and frustration at being unable to understand the modern mindset of Gu Yun. He is intrigued but still suspicious, somewhat attracted and yet uneasy when dealing with this woman who is like a panther, prowling and stalking.

Imagine a "Beauty And The Beast" like story, focusing more on a military-minded Belle, while the Beast can only grunt and smoulder in private anger because he is unable to do anything to bring her under control. Now imagine we're only 1/3 of the movie in according to the translation's pace, and we know next to nothing about the Beast.

It is a good read thus far. But listed complete with only 43 chapters, I hope the pace picks up somewhat quickly.

Read it now if you want a truly focus-minded female MC. <<less
