Qin Aofeng, a third-generation descendant of the great and prestigious Qin Family, was just as famous as his genius big brother Aotian, but was famed in Qin City for being the “Good-for-nothing Seventh Young Master.”

The compound is perilous, the clan is full of conflict. Before her rebirth, she dressed as a male, her birth a mystery. Because of her lack of talent, she was thought of as a worthless member of the clan. After her rebirth, she walked onto the path of a strong person, and lived on the continent like a fish in water.

Until one day at the capital city of the empire, the spear of the patriarch pointed to her young uncle that she always treasured, the “young male” that had always been undistinguished stood out, and astounded everyone, becoming a peerless genius. Ever since then, countless males and females became made for … …

The vast ancient forests, the deep bogs shrouded in back mist, the desolate and endless desert, the mountains and plains without any border where the magical beasts moved unhindered, this was a vast magical world.

I always have respect for anything that Dreams of Jianghu translates. This one has not disappointed me so far.

Indeed it is a transmigration story of a powerful and loyal mercenary into a good-for-nothing young "master", however I believe it is tastefully done. While our MC is cold, she is not emotionally dead. She is cold because she has to protect herself (ways of the mercenary) and can still appreciate good will (also beautiful people haha).

She starts off awakening in a body of a young "master" with many secrets. She fully... more>> accepts her situation and strives to improve herself and her situation. Loyalty and dignity are the hallmarks of her character.

The Male Protagonist is a nice change of pace. Not a cold emperor tsundere, but just someone with a working moral compass and brain. Quite the pairing actually! (My ship will stay or burn.)

The world is developed well enough to be interesting. Not all characters are dumb beyond belief. We have some nice side characters here and there that makes reading this at least enjoyable. Pacing is done well so far, not too fast, but not an info dump to your face.

Since this is still Xuanhuan, face slapping (or jewel cutting *cough cough*) is still present for your enjoyment.

I look forward to reading more and I hope the translations become more consistent. <<less

This story is superficial. Everybody's either the mc's mortal enemy, or a lifelong friend willing to sacrifice anything for their relationship with the MC, and it all seems to be decided at the moment they meet the MC. Honestly, watching everyone fall into these extremes made me disenterested. (Discontinued reading)

"Oh no, this person turned out to be your new mortal enemy, just like half the people you meet... What a surprise?"

"Oh yay, this person turned out to be a true ally, willing to fight beside you regardless of... more>> the odds, just like half the people you meet... What a surprise?"

Can we get some motivation please? Nobody seems to gravitate towards these extremes for any discernable reason. <<less

In some aspects this is the usual transmigration story, however the uniqueness starts with the MC being weak, but not too weak. Also there is the is the gender bender part which I love. At the start before transmigration, mc's death is pretty unique in comparison to other pre-transmigration deaths. Overall the comraderie in these chapters and genuine strength from the MC, I look forward to reading more.

I gave up on this story when I realised that I honestly didn't care if the main character lived or died. She didn't have either my respect or my sympathy, and as the story progressed I actually began to dislike her. Everything comes too easily for her - friends, allies, enemies, power ups, skills, you name it, she got it without even trying. There's no depth to the characters, and no depth to the plot.

It had a great start but soon devolved. This novel had the best start of an assassin transmigration novel, it was built not on betrayal but friendship and I really appreciate that. The novel kind of degraded but still kept its quality in the next few chapters, and when it got to the time when she was revealed to be a woman it was quite cool but that's that. Afterwards it becomes the run of the mill OP protag transmigration novel where everyone is one dimensional and the MC is... more>> a typical Mary Sue protagonist- and let me just say this in regards to the trope, a lot of people misrepresent "Mary Sue" to mean a powerful female protag, which is untrue.

okay Mary Sue rant skip if you don't care for it

Mary Sue is actually a female protag who bends the laws of their respective universe, in other words, to write a Mary Sue character you would make up this character and then build the universe around them and the reason we find it hard to invest ourselves in a medium with a Mary Sue is because it's writen with the assumed premise that this character is the best character without the story actually giving us the why in terms of story context and it pulls the reader out of their reading experience; If we were to define any OP character to be Mary Sue we would basically condemn almost every female superhero to be a Mary Sue- which is untrue if you had seen the movie Wonder Woman where she's seen as a super OP character but the story definitely has its suspense and actual risks as the universe is not built around Diana and she has to navigate it without the help of easy plot conveniences.

end rant

The story had a lot of potential had they led the MC to much more trials, tribulations and sacrifices for her to get where she is now while also staying logically consistent with her character-


I remember when she risked her life to save that super swordsmaster guy for saving her once in passing (which I don't think he was even aware of) but she's also up there for one of the pettiest people ever. She's condemned a whole group to danger and most likely death because the leader of that group gravely offended her by pouring quite a lot of this liquid to attract beasts on the leader's head- and you know the leader isn't the only one who would run into trouble with that because she poured on so MUCH I don't think the rest of that group of people who (mind you) have yet to harm her because there's no way they can escape a hypothetical encirclement of that size- she basically condemned a whole group of people to death for the crime of a few.I just don't get her. Either make her a goody two shoe or just don't


TLDR; It starts good but doesn't stay good <<less

Like it a lot already. Different from other cultivation novels with female leads, this time the MC wasn’t betrayed, (but still die due to circumstances, it is a very satisfying reason for dying) is capable of fighting back against those that picks a fight with her first, knows her strengths and weakness. Handsome, (has to be disguised as a male due to reason) cold, and ruthless, fast with her revenge against those that wrongs her.

Great novel so far as translated chapters can be seen. The world building for thus novel is also good. Characters are welk rounded and stayed true.

... more>>

The MC is NOT ANNOYING. I repeat nit annoying. She has a great personality. Hard on the outside but soft and caring on the inside. She will not wrong you if you do not wrong her first. She is most inportantly, LOYAL, to those who has shown good to her. In short, a worthy heroine.

The ML, so far looks promising. Very good guy. Loyal and honest to our MC. They have such a strong bond though the bodues they both represent are enemies. Kinda like romeo and juliet. But the ML still as expected chose the MC over hus god. Ahhh.. So romantic..


As of now.

they have separated. The MC is levelling up and needs time to do it. Shelk be looking for the ML after she can protect herself and follow him..😘😘😘.. The ml, in the mean time is buying time for her to grow.

Btw. A lot of people. I mean ikemen seem to take a liking this MC of ours. No can do. Shes too independent.

I hooe she and her shitian will ve able to see each other here. 👭👭👭.. Btw. Shitian is her female colleague that died with her in the modern times. A good character I may say. If the ML was not there I will totally ship the two of them!!!


All together this is a great read as all the translated works of "dreams of the jianghu" are. Recommended!!! <<less

At the beginning the flow was so-so in volume 1, well in the long run, the flow of the story was getting interesting, until I reach volume 11.

Well, I read some reviews on this novel. I guess the characters in the story are simple and don't have complex mind, if like is like then hate is hate, well not all characters are like that some changed also after events. For me, that's the way of this novel is. After all from the start it was another world. Everything is... more>> not the same after all.

They said this novel already completed up to Volume 16, I would love to continue reading it... I hope author will update it. <<less

In this novel, I now understad what "Protagonist halo"/ "Golden finger" really mean haha. The MC is a girl but disguised as a boy. She is a really cool MC, able to fight back verbally or physically, has strong comradeship, everyone loves her! However, I feel like MC is showing so much already of her cards. I kinda want her to remain somewhat mysterious or concious of herself since she's being chased or looked for by those people. But well, The story so far is nice and the translation is... more>> really good. As expected from the translator of my fave novel To be a Virtuous Wife. <<less

What the hell ! What are all these crazily high ratings ? I would have given it 0 stars if possible.

This novel and from the very first chapters is just a big ewwwwww, a tr*sh between tr*sh novels !

I can't believe how irrealistic this novel is ! I have read a lot of tr*sh FL cultivation novels, but this one takes the prize !

... more>> And how easily and cheaply everything comes to her hand, like the ML was introduced and started helping her even before she started cultivating.

s*upid story, sometimes ratings are traps ! I have been waiting to read it thinking it was a rare gem (seeing all the 5 star ratings), I have prepared everything creating a cozy ambiance for the sake of fully enjoying an amazing story. But how desappointed I was ! Completely destroyed the mood ! <<less
