Chu Wang Fei

Description

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

She, the prime minister’s daughter, was timid and cowardly. Because her engagement fell through, and her reputation was ruined, she was pressured to spill her own blood in the palace hall! Once again opening her eyes, the cowardice had vanished, replaced by coldness, causing others to be intimidated at first glance. Yet no one realized, she was not her.

He, the current dynasty’s Chu Wang, served the country and brought peace and stability. Peerless and magnificent, all the girls under the Heavens eagerly pursued him! He helped her break off her engagement in the palace hall, but she avoided him at a great distance. He set his mind to pursue her, but she didn’t intend to love him.

At home, the turbulent currents of government affairs surged violently, disputes from every country continued to spring up everywhere. The stunning her who had been reborn, and how she didn’t bat an eyelid to resolve that terrifying carnage; her name had shaken the whole world!

When the dust had settled, and the song and dance had ceased, who could hold hands with her and look upon this thousand-year golden age, this flourishing ten thousand miles? Nowadays in this land under the Heavens, everyone spoke of how Chu Wang was cunning and two-faced, he desired the whole world, and was someone they seriously could not provoke. Yet the one they could not provoke even more was his Wang Fei – Yun Qian Meng! Anyone who provoked Chu Wang Fei, must surely be prepared to lose their necks!

A breathtaking rebirth, a thrilling marriage, in the blink of an eye the once weak woman had become the honorable Chu Wang Fei!

Wang Fei: In the palace chambers, between the feasts, smiles are hiding daggers, with layers and layers of plots and machinations; those who hurt my flesh and blood will have to pay the price.

Chu Wang: In these troubled times, carrying the fire beacon, over thousands of miles of fortresses and mountains, I have traveled to the distance to these border stations; if you dare to hurt my wife I will take your life.

Wang Fei: In another country, in a foreign land, will his thoughts stay pure? The princess of another nation is gracefull and beautiful, will “a pair of people for one life” change?

Chu Wang: Returning home, difficult problems arise. As green hills extend into the distance, beautiful flowers and tender feelings grow deeply; dealing with the ruler and his ministers is harder than rising into Heaven.

That night, all the monarchs struggled for power, smoke rising all around; that night, the husband and wife were separated, neither humble nor haughty; that night, the land was in great disorder, lying corpses filled the plains; that night, whose heart was confused, whose family was broken, whose country was lost?

In the chaos of war, during their separation, separated by thousands of miles of unmoving mountains and rivers, the gentleman’s heart and the wife’s heart never changed. In the lonely city without aid, hand in hand as before, they advanced together while chatting lightly about this West Chu country.

This had a strong start but gradually goes downhill dramatically when you realize everyone who opposes the MC is a moron. She's only a "genius" because the stars align in the most Deus Ex Machina way for everything to work out or her villains and enemies (regardless of if they were shown or described to be intelligent and cunning prior) suddenly hold the biggest idiot ball imaginable and walk right into her traps and wordplay.

Also the MC comes off as a huge hypocrite and just and all around antagonistic individual.... more>> She treats people like sh*t and her justification is that they have ulterior motives or aren't 100% behind her. It's like she doesn't know what looking into a mirror is. There people need to look out for themselves, why wouldn't someone put themselves first? People can actually work together with mutual benefit and not just simpering to the MC who also doesn't give a sh*t about other people (regardless of her inner monologues).

It was particularly annoying to read her interaction with her cousin (WHO IS 11) when she first arrived to the city. Oh! A little girl raised in the country side really likes jewelry and has ambition!? What a bitch I'm gonna ruin her. Instead of being a good example and leading her through the minefield of family and society machinations, her immediate thought is to destroy her because her family (mom, dad and grandma) told her to watch herself and curry favor *rolls eyes*.

RAPE RAPE RAPE. Seriously, everyone gets raped, s*xually assaulted or harassed and the "good guys" facilitate it of exacerbate it while patting themselves on the back from within their glass house. A lot of people justifying this poor story telling need to take a step back and realize these characters are not even 20 when this sh*t happens (one character is 13 and forced to MARRY her rapist by the wonderful ML). Is it accurate to that time? Well not really becuase this is a highly exaggerated story. But even if it was, MC is from the modern era (and this is only brought up to justify some Mary Sue power or to laud her modern moral sensibilities) and should not be A. OK! Especially since she was a POLICE OFFICER *eye roll*.

Timelines and age make no sense. Don't think about it.

Story is slow paced, romance poorly developed and the plot is not coherent or believable. <<less

An absolutely wonderful read! The female lead is very smart and independent but not arrogant. Although the romance started a bit slowly, the title gave away who the main male lead would be – the handsome and enigmatic Chu Wang, Chu Fei Yang (who was actually still a Chancellor/Left Prime Minister at the start of the novel).

I love “Chu Wang Fei” like I love “To Be A Virtuous Wife” in that the female leads don’t dwell too much on their ‘past lives’ and tried their best to live a happy... more>> fulfilled life in the new environment. Both stories are great in their own way!

“TBAVW” focuses more on the responsibilities and challenges faced by an unfavored daughter who married into royalty, and only briefly mentions the political machinations her husband may be involved with. In “CWF”, the husband is not royalty (thank goodness) and female lead is more actively involved with her husband’s plans in various ways...

Although the translations are updated at a good pace I couldn’t wait and decided to brave the Chinese version >.< I'm not sure how much I misunderstood here and there but I finished it and plan to order the physical book online just for the sake of having it on my shelf! XD <<less

Reincarnated investigator (i guess) who get a body of legitimate daughter of prime minister. But she got bullied badly because her mother is already dead, and the one who control the household her father's concubine.

From the title, we already know that she will end up as Chu Wang Fei (or the oficial wife of Chu Wang/ King Chu). Watch our MC as she make way through the mud and storm into becoming Chu Wang Fei. She is your typical reincarnation template, as she overpowered in EQ and IQ. Smart,... more>> charming, intelligent woman which you never can hope to found in era where woman is a possession not a human being.

For you guys who want to read it but feel overwhelmed with the bunch of unorganized chapter, please refer here! Https://willfulcasual. Wordpress. Com/chu-wang-fei-by-ning-er/index/ our wonderful translator who fill the gap (so the original translator only do the first few chapter, the make summary in the middle before translate again what she think more interesting).

Definitely recommended as one of the top smart female protagonist genre! <<less

I really like this one. Probably the most realistic and believable reincarnation LN I've read so far.

Read this:
If you want a well-written story about a smart heroine and political intrigue in a traditional Chinese court, read Chu Wang Fei.

Don't read this:
If you want exciting action, bloody fights, heart-rending romance, and OP characters, you will be disappointed.

Translation:
The quality is pretty good (I'd say 4/5), but the series goes through 3 translators with slight inconsistencies. There is a LOT of Chinese vocabulary to remember. The translators do... more>> a good job of defining the words in the notes, but it definitely makes this a harder read. New chapters are released pretty slowly.

Main character:
One of my favorite main characters so far, but not in the usual way. She's not of my favorites because of her personality (cold, intelligent, well-spoken, ladylike).
I like her because she is one most believable characters I've seen. She only has her intelligence and wits to survive. She doesn't have any really over-powered fighting skills, medical skills, extensive knowledge from another life, or secret powers. She doesn't do unbelievable things to stand out like most female MCs (e.g. killing tons of people, taking over the army, yelling at people, etc) that would normally get them killed in reality. She just acts like a very well-behaved Chinese noblewoman who happens to be very good with words.

Story:
This is very much about political intrigue, family power struggles, and ancient Chinese manners. We see a police woman who in reincarnated in the body of a rejected young miss. All by herself, she has to find people she can trust, gain security, and outsmart the people who bully her. She slowly gets involved with the court and several male love interests.

The romance develops VERY slowly and the pace of the story is slow but steady. The events and twists are well-paced and not too predictable, though they are on the small scale (like family drama, not big battles). I wasn't bored and finished all 80+ chapters in a few days. But some more impatient readers might get bored quickly if they aren't in the mood for a more intellectual read.

Overall:
I give this story a 4.5/5 for now because of how well it's written and how realistic the setting and characters are. Even though I wouldn't say it's one of the most fast-paced/exciting stories out there, the realism makes it excellent.

UPDATE as of Ch.114:

New chapters are released very slowly, and the plot also moves relatively slowly, so after I wrote the review above at Chapter 83, I waited until a lot of new chapters had been released so I could binge them all at once. I'm happy to say that the story is still going strong, the character development is steady, and it's still a very satisfying read. I'm sad to wait again... I really have the urge to read more! <<less

I had high hopes for this novel based on the other reviews, but while I find it mostly interesting, there are several flaws that make the novel rage inducing at times.

This is your standard transmigration backstory: a supposedly brilliant narcotics police expert is transmigrated into a medieval Chinese setting where treacherous politics fly everywhere due to family power struggles rule over everything (because men can't stop taking concubines). Problem is, soon after the start of the story, the reader realizes there no reason to even set up the transmigration backstory.... more>> There is no modern knowledge, techniques, or concepts that are carried over. The MC ends up simply being an intelligent girl that is able to talk her way through difficulties. Why bother with the transmigration backstory?

The summary and the premise is that the MC becomes the Chu Wang Fei (mistress of the Chu family). By the time we're at Ch. 85, the courtship between the MC and the future male lead hasn't even started. The title is really a spoiler, since the title character technically still doesn't exist even 1/4 of the way through the novel.

The MC is truly powerless to control her fate. Villains come at her one after another and she talks her way out of situations, but she never manages to conquer anyone. She brilliantly defeats enemies one after another in battles of wits, but she is never able to decisively win, only escape. 1/4 of the novel in, and a grand total of zero enemies have been humiliated, discredited, disowned, executed, destroyed. Nada. They go free, only to come back to have another attempt at literally, her life. Best example is the assassin that the "title" couple capture, who turns out to be an assassin prince from an enemy kingdom. Rather than turn him in, they take him to a brothel, dress him up like a transvestite, and then let him go. Surprise! Few chapters later, he comes back to try to murder the MC. The MC and her allies are constantly being framed by political enemies, but once those enemies are caught red-handed, the author promptly forgets about them and moves on to the villain.

There are a ton of illogical relationships and inconsistencies in the character settings. The MC's aunt is the Empress Dowager (widow of the late-Emperor). The MC is 15, the Dowager can be estimated to be no more than 40 (since the Dowager's mother is known to be 60). Ok, but the Dowager's step-son and current Emperor (son of the late-Emperor's concubine) should not be older than about 20-22. Then the story goes on to say that the Chen Wang (half-brother of the prince) was too young to compete for the throne, then Chen Wang should be no more than maybe 18. Yet in the established story, Chen Wang is already the second most powerful man in the nation due to his achievements.

Ok, so the next in line Prince is a 18 year old schemer with tons of supposed achievements and the 19 year old MC's love interest is one of two Prime Ministers of the country. Timelines don't add up anywhere.

Each chapter is extremely dense to read. The fact that none of the titles are translated means that for readers with little prior knowledge of Chinese will spend a HUGE amount of time memorizing all the terms. Even for those who understand Chinese would require some time to get used to the terms. I would say a solid 30% of the word count is simply names of people, places, or titles.

If you like a story where a clever girl outsmarts people so they don't kill her, you'll be fine reading this. If you like a story where clever girl brilliantly obliterates opponents and earns respect and grabs glory, pass on this. <<less

At first, I didn't want to read this novel since the summary didn't interest me. But what the hell, I'm so glad I tried it out (I kept seeing this being recommended).

Three words: I Love It

For those who are hesitating (like me when I first read the summary), Do Not Waste Your Time. Just plunge in and try reading the first 10 chapters. I've got to say though, just the first chapter got me hooked. I stayed up all night just reading this novel.

Basically, a police woman transmigrated to the... more>> body of a quite pitiful girl. There's the usual Evil stepmother (concubine of the father), Evil stepsister, and Negligent Father going on here. So to say, there's always drama going on.

Actually, A Lot of Drama.

But not in that boring soap opera kind of way. The others just kept on trying to frame the MC, but of course, the MC outwits them.

That's one hell of a birthday party though, it's kinda hilarious. You'll get what I mean when you're already up to the birthday party of the Gu Furen.

Anyways, I don't want to spoil it anymore when you can just go ahead and read it. But ok, just one more spoiler since this is practically what most readers want to know.

Yes, this is a Happy Ending. <<less

A potrait of ancient chinese culture.

The story of an official family in the kingdom where MC is the legitimate daughter in it.

This novel makes me conclude that:

  1. Harem isnt always good. Theres war for the husbands affection all day and night.
  2. When theres no smartphone, tv, or internet. Everyone so idle to the point of just focus on how to scheming and plotting each other with daggers on their hands. So, thank god we have internet, tv, and smartphone now.
  3. Man shouldnt take alot of wives if they are stupid. Since they can easily be manipulated by their wives.
  4. s*x probably the best weapon for women in ancient chinese. As no matter how insidious and cruelest the antagonist act, the husband seems to takes no mind of it and wants to curry favor to her. Even to the point of allowing the antagonist to kill his legitimate wife (MC`s mother).

Was one of my favorite stories, until I read till chapter 122. I daresay the MC was amazing and very much to my liking as she displays such domineering aura and shows her competence in deflecting her enemies and regain the things her stupid family stole away from her. Considering she has a bastard of a father who is totally a sucker for his concubine and ignored her mum's death, I admire how the MC was able to thwart that slut with that degree of partiality going on.

But..... there is... more>> always a but! Here comes my complains. The MC and the plotline was splendid. But the mc's past life background was presented in a very lame way! The second point, the villains are a stigma to the name of villain. All of them I've read about so far, literally all of them are those sh*tty, arrogant, overly shameless, egotistic, self-entitled, idiotic bastards who can only speak rubbish every given chance they are given and try pinning everything on MC while cursing her even though they are the ones at fault!! I get enraged everytime these guys appear and have hard time making sure I don't break the screen of my device! And finally, I hate the male lead!! Well, I liked him fine just before.... until their wedding that is. Afterwards, he seemed to plaster himself to her and goes rabu rabu 24/7 as if there is no tomorrow! Although this was supposed to be fluffy and cute, honestly it's just plain disgusting.....I literally skipped more than half of the chapter as more than 50% of them are filled with this guy kissing her like crazy be it home or in the carriage! It really grosses me out. A little is cute but too much is gross. Also if I might add, their words which apparently have double meanings all the time are very poorly executed as most of the time unless the author mentions the double meaning in next line, no sane person will go that far to poke out those kind of 'sinister' meaning out of it. Bluntly saying, the author is really bad at words with 9 curves and 18 turns thus makes a random hidden meaning out of every normal sentences said, check yourself if you don't believe me.

Spoiler

"Yi Yi has been brought up closely since she was small, of course she can't compare to a xiaojie from an influential family in the capital, in addition to her current young age, when talking about sophisticated thinking, please do not blame her, cousin." The usually silent Yun Yi Heng suddenly said.

The intended meaning in his words was very clear. Firstly, he pointed out that Yun Qian Meng's thinking was overly sophisticated, which set off against the unsophisticated, good, and honest nature of Yun Yi Yi; Secondly, he pointed out that Yun Qian Meng had lost her mother since young, compared to Yun Yi Yi who grew up under attentive care, Yun Qian Meng was more insidious and cunning.

Okay...... so just how is the meaning very clear? Even if I were smarter I probably wouldn't get this kind of impression from what he said.

[collapse]

Update:

Okay now I hate this novel even more! As for why then it's as nascentechuva and Ritu says. The Mc's hypocritical mindset and the irrational ML whose unhealthy obsession with MC has caused both of their rationality to evaporate.....I just changed my rating from 3 to 1. <<less

Ignore the rating, if I could change it to 0 stars, I would. This novel disappointed me so much in the latest chapter. I never understood the need to have such a gory revenge for a child, and this is coming from a person with very little political correctness. Does the author not realize how the act of a gruesome violation of a kid defeats the purpose of having an MC and ML that are levelheaded yet ruthless to those who truthfully deserve it.

... more>>
Spoiler

Yun Yi Yi is 13 years old and accused Chu Fei Yang of ruining her because she's wholeheartedly impulsive. As most 13 year olds are psychologically (*insert over used excuse that people in the past age differently* No, there's no proof of that. There never has been.). Yun Yi Yi was clearly marked as a spoiled girl from the start, of course she would do this kind of thing. As revenge, Chu Fei Yang has her marry her rapist, and her rapist takes full advantage of it. Chu Fei isn't a saint, I understand that, but the thing that made him believable was his levelheadedness. He knew who the real targets were.

The argument that could have been made was that to get revenge on Yun Yi Yi's father, he had to sacrifice Yun Yi Yi. But the author makes it clear that YYY's father doesn't care for anything other than his reputation. They both could have easily have been exiled.

[collapse]

I understood that YQM (female lead) was a cold person from the start, and CFY (male lead) more so, but the two of them knew who were the real evils. Those with ruthless political aspirations. Not to mention that YQM worked for the law in her previous life, but like in most transmigration stories, the past goes flying out the window.

Some may argue that this story is based off of how unforgiving the era Yun Qian Meng lives in is. To that I say, this is a story about transmigration and outwitting your opponents. Realism in novels doesn't always mean 100% accuracy. We often suspend our disbelief when reading, a story can bend the "truth" (I use this lightly because this is a tale about transmigration and starting a new life) and be a good story. <<less

It was mildly entertaining for the first 70+ chapters though the story is a bit tedious and slow at times. There are inconsistencies that increasingly creep in that take away from the story more and more as it proceeds. Still it was a fun read until the plot that was crawling at a snail's pace suddenly goes into overdrive. All of a sudden we go from the casual vicious conflicts among the different houses and wives to this obvious poorly written and executed rushed national level conspiracy. The author should... more>> stick to writing about the petty squabbles among the womenfolk as they fail when it comes to writing about actual political intrigue.

Another huge flaw in the story is the main male love interest. The guy can fart and it'll create a gale of gold dust blowing all his enemies away in the process. He is the very definition of Deus ex Machina. While I am on that subject, what was the point of the 3rd love interest? He is utterly pointless in the story, a wasted character.

Overall, I'm surprised by the high ratings of the novel as the author starts insulting our intelligence after chapter 76 where the story abruptly takes a nosedive. <<less

This novel is one of the rare novels that actually depicted a life of a fiercely intelligent woman from the future (one who actually think before they act and know the consequences) and reincarnated into the past as a first daughter of a noble but with a tainted name.

Every description of the feelings, environments and plots are on point and not overly exaggerate like certain novels. Although it is in a historical setting, this novel is realistic and every of its character has a role to play including the villains.

The... more>> main character, Yun Qian Meng, is a favourite character of mine. She is not perfect but she is intelligent and knows when to hide her strengths and weaknesses and when to use them. She is like an intelligent war general who knew whom she should trust and whom she shouldn't, what to do during emergencies and very calculative. However, instead of facing a place full of brave warriors, enemies and weapons, her battlefield is a place full of conceited women, calculative concubines, vile family members and backstabbers. She had to face false accusations and frauds while at the same time maintaining her elegant reputation as a first xiaojie of a noble family.

And what I love the most about her is that she is not overly OP. So far, she doesn't have any special powers - only some simple self-defense movements she got from her past life. She is also never arrogant and faced her opponents sensibly.

The author also had made good settings of the Chu Wang Fei by making different plot every time. As the story goes on, the plot and characters level up steadily at a decent pace. New characters appear but no old characters are pushed aside abruptly. The author also knows how to play with the readers feelings and keep us intrigued. To the point, this novel is making me wanting to learn Chinese in order to read Chu Wang Fei in its pure form.

Be warn though, since the genre is historical and time setting is on ancient china, the language and its culture may give some people a headache while reading. <<less

I just adore these types of light novels, and recommend it to anyone who loves having a smart and entertaining MC. It is a great read that ranks together to me with To Be A Virtuous Wife, Mei Gongqing, and Demonic King Chases, so if you have read any of these stories I recommend this series for you.

Very, very nice romance novel. It starts out EXTREMELY slow since Yun Qian Meng (the female MC) has a lot of politicking to do so she doesn't end up as horrendously bullied as her body's original occupant. You don't really see a hint of romance until much later. But Chu Wang is a pretty great male MC (and love interest) and worth the wait -- YQM's interactions with him and his grandpa are so funny and cute! I love a good power couple and YQM and CW are definitely among... more>> my favorites. *Makes a big thumbs-up* <<less

Wow, just caught up to the translations. WOW. This was not what I expected! Chu Wang Fei has been the Least unrealistic and Least ridiculous transmigration story I've read so far, lol.

I'm coming from Genius Doctor: Black Belly Miss and Stunning Edge, so I thought this would be along similar veins. And it is for the most part, since the Good characters and Bad characters are so apparent. And the main female lead's wit is basically incomparable to anyone in the world to which she transmigrates. No one can beat... more>> her in a game of wits!!! She outwits Everybody, Every time. Which is really comforting, because the villains can be so evil and annoying. But unlike GDBBM and SE, I think Yun Qian Meng actually has to struggle a lot more... she has to plan for longer and wait and abide for her profits more. In that way she is a little less OP. Chu Wang Fei feels like slightly more mature storytelling (this is far from high literature, but at least it's less far than most Chinese light novels!!!)

Somebody compared this To Be A Virtuous Wife, except a lot more happens, and I think that's a really good comparison. Just like in To Be A Virtuous Wife, there is a lot of "houyuan" wit-battling. And TBAVW is one of the few houyuan stories that I can stomach. I can't stand imperial drama stories, but I LOOOVED TBAVW. But you can read my review for that story on its page. However, UNLIKE TBAVW where rarely anything earth-shaking happens, Chu Wang Fei is PACKED with drama. Lol. It's like Gone With The Wind, except Yun Qian Meng seems to have control over her life.

The romance is almost like a side dish... honestly, so far in the story it's only been Yun Qian Meng trying to get revenge for her mom. She still hasn't completely fulfilled it yet, even!!! And there's all these villains coming at her left and right. I feel so bad for YQM actually, because she has to deal with such horrible and hypocritical people all the time. I'd want to move and live in the mountains and never see these people ever again. But then she would have never met Chu Fei Yang... who is SO HOT. Probably the hottest male lead ever. He's like everything in one. He's smart and charismatic and strong. I've never read a male lead with a better personality, except maybe in Husband, Be a Gentleman. They are somewhat similar, except Chu Fei Yang is actually publicly known to be awesome, and they've both got this incorrigible/riling up the female lead thing going on that works out so well. I think that the "tall dark and handsome" thing is kind of boring... if they have few words to say, that just means they're empty characters. If they were in dramas, it'd be easier to at least fawn over their face, but in novels, you need some colorful dialogue to keep you hooked on a character...

The other 2 male leads are pretty interesting but really do not compare to Chu Fei Yang, which is good! Because, we all know who Yun Qian Meng will end up with. I'm just kind of sad there aren't more scenes with them together. But when they get together, it's super thrilling to see what happens. You can never expect what will happen. Actually, for the whole story, you're not totally sure what's going to happen. I think the author did a good job of making this story filled with just the right amount of using familiar tropes and then also being super original. <<less

"I have falling in love with this story!"

This story is MAGICAL story (lol, there is no real magic in here)

the reason why this is magical story:

1. Maybe some of you doesn't too into to political struggles [kinds of the environment where you need curry favor or kiss.... to keep your place save] (actually me too, I dislike politic), but you will not find yourself boring with this story as the author can lead you well enough so you will not get lose, instead you will find it fun to... more>> read and you will realize you have already read more than 20 chapter-ish!! how magical!

2. As for now (ch 75), I can say this story have approximately 10% LOVE [between MCs) and 90% others. (actually I really love romance novels, I am always love fluffy love stories, with 85 or more percentages fluffiness in there) but, again! the author blow my view! I can feel '90% others' is like candy tastes (sometimes mint, sour, and sweet) and when we got '10% Love'... BOOM... really got me to be acute diabetes!!

3. I am not too into to serious stories! But here, I can not say anything... so magically in love!

Everything is so magical, don't doubt just read! give this story a chance!

I am teary when this story will be continuing again... thank you <<less

Our MC is brilliant. I love her. She is calm and collected and reasonable. Of course the ML is completely likable. Ugh, I can't wait until this is finished.

Honestly this story just bored me. The main character is the typical mary sue that can do no wrong even though she doesn't have any experience in this sort of life she can flawlessly adapt and be perfect. And the backstory of her being a police captain in charge of a drug department and a mixed martial arts world champion just made me laugh. The love interest is the typical so handsome that everyone loves while being so talented he can do anything, but for some reason is interested in... more>> the MC even though they never interacted before. The enemies are the usual stupid people who try to ruin the MC but always fail nothing really interesting about it. Overall a very average story with nothing that makes it stand out. <<less

I'm very disappointed after the 120+ chapters. I'm telling why and it contains spoilers. The uncontolable hypocrisy and the sheer lack of morals in the new chapters shocked me. The author went too far. I don't know what they were thinking. How is it a 13 year old child getting married to her own rapist is okay? I loved the MC before this incident. But after the 110+ chapters, I feel like she has lost all humanity that she had in mordern world. She is now no better that the... more>> people she is trying to defeat. Her husband ordered her 13 yr old cousin to get married to her own rapist. She didn't speak up even though she knew that her cousin was going to go through hell. Her thoughts ? " You shouldn't have angered my husband". Later on, her half sister got raped by beggers due to the plotting of another person trying to frame her. In this instance, she acts all shocked and thinks that although she wants to destroy her half sister, she would have never wanted to destroy her chastity as it is important in the ancient world. They are both women after all and she was a police officer before, she would not want to see someone get raped.... She is more offended that someone tried to frame her.

look at this hypocrite. This very words make me realize that she no longer is what she used to be. For her it's okay if a woman gets raped if it's her husband ordering it. It seems love made her stupid. She is no longer the strong woman with a good sense of morality that I used to love. it seems after getting married, she just stopped being the strong woman she was.....

The ML MLis nothing new newto Chinese novels, the same old super intelligent, handsome, OP and "I like to s*xually assult the woman I love". The villians are stupid with little to some character development.

I know MC doesn't always have to be an angel on earth and the ML doesn't have to be the sweet guy but after 120+ chaps the plot just.... It's not something I can handle.

I am surprised by the response of the readers. They are trying to defend the ML and MC. They say all the women who got raped in this novel, they deserved it. They are okay with a 13 yr old child getting raped. I'm disgusted by the " it's the fault of the victim " mindset.

Anyway it was an entertaining read for me the 110+ chapters or so even though it was a slow plot development. It is well translated. I would recommend to read till chap 110 or so (if you hate the same things as me) <<less

This is my favorite Chinese novel (and I're read almost ALL translated historic Chinese novels) !

The male lead (whose identity you can tell from the start; thanks to the title) and the MC are perfect for each other. They're both strong, smart, cunning, but caring. The MC is really lovable, mainly because she has common sense and is sensible, as opposed to MCs from other reincarnation novels.

I feel sorry for the two 2nd male leads sometimes, but thy don't stand a chance against our Chu xiang. And Chen wang doesn't... more>> deserve her anyway.

I underestimated the length of this novel. Although there aren't that many chapters, each chapter is pretty long. Well, I'm loving each chapter ♡ <<less

The story is interesting; I like the MC and I think it is nice how the romance is slowly introduced.
What I would like to heavily praise is the very high quality of the translation. It makes reading it a pleasure and I sincerely wish more translators took such care with their work.

Ok this is less a review a more a rant:
... more>>
Spoiler

This story was marvelous up until it stopped being about Yun Qian Meng (Chu Wang Fei) and become literally about everyone else that I didn't give a crap about.

I give it a 4.5/5 up until Chu Fei Yang and Yun Quan Meng gets married and a little bit after...

When the plots advances to them visiting the neighboring country it went off the rail completely. There were chapters after chapters where Yun Quan Meng barely gets a mention, so much so that anyone that just started reading the story from that point onward would certainly not find it hard to believe that Yun Quan Meng was nothing more than a supporting character. Extremely extremely disappointing to see such a wondering story fall flat on its face.
