Hua Jin Lan, a 21st century assassin, was tied up by her sister and thrown into the sea. When her eyes reopened, she had became the daughter, with the same name, of a martial arts family in the Yue dynasty. Some say that the daughter was worthless and just a pretty face; some say she was shameless and proposed to 5 different men a total of 10 times; some say she was a ruthless person and when unable to obtain love she turns to love potions. She was exposed thus while bearing both shame and resentment she jumps into the river and commits suicide……Wait what?

I, an assassin, am being trolled? Fine! If you say I am worthless, let me show you what is a genius. If you say I am shameless, let me show you what is presumptuous. If you say I am brazen, let me show you what is even more brazen.

Typical female revenge story but inferior to its peers. If you can put up with the abrupt pacing, the information dumps and sudden increases in her power levels, you find yourself facing a rather s*upid story where the female lead struts around, picking fights, only to ‘win’ them by saying or doing something so s*upid her opponents are probably shocked silent, and thinking herself calculating and intelligent. In terms of plot, it feels more like a Chu Wang Fei/Demon Wang’s Golden Favorite Fei type of story where the female lead... more>> puts down others to climb over them, but does so in DOP-type OPness and pacing. The author is probably aiming for a mix of “cunning” verbal arguments and martial arts – only to fail miserably at both. Overall, whatever story you think CE resembles, save yourself some time and just read those instead since they’ll obviously be better. It's not the worst thing I've read, but it's still quite far from the best. <<less

This is pretty much a copy of “Descent of the Phoenix – 13 Years Old Princess Consort” accept that DoP has better and more consistent writing. If you think this series sounds interesting, read DoP instead. (Dropped at chapter 17)

The main character is an assassin who bullied the netherworld into giving her a better life. However, although she ends up in a rich family, she is thrown into the body of a young miss who was bullied to the point of committing suicide. There is a hint of mystery as to why she is shunned by her family and also not able to learn martial arts. Personally, the story has a decent premise with bad execution. The pace was choppy to the point that I felt more confused than... more>> intrigued.

On the other hand, translator is doing amazing. <<less

The pacing is horrible and the infomation dumps are abrupt. The story's setting is a classical female assassin soul in another persons body, however it doesn't even remotely compare to many of the already existing novels. The chapters are shorter than the usual wuxia standard (way shorter) and the plot is not fully explored (if at all). The primary focus seems to be on just the sequence of events rather than the thought behind it.

... more>>

The author keeps on throwing out random characters with no descriptions or impression at all, like on the first chapter she describes how she 'batted with imps' when reincarnating and how her sister 'betrayed her' -that's it. She literally just said "my sister betrayed me and I battled imps in the underworld" thats her WHOLE backstory. The author doesn't describe her profession, life style, event's leading to betray -abruptly dumping infomation every chapter then moving on to the next sequence of events


Litterally not even worth reading, with the short chapters and current pacing it would only take less than an hour to catch up to the recent chapter (ch.53 at this point) but it's not even worth it. <<less

I dunno about you guys, but this is definitely all over the place. I was skeptical when I read the reviews saying the same thing, but it truly is quite agonizing to read the pace of events.

Let me give some examples. The story jumped from her beginning to learn martial arts to her becoming princess of the third prince in a matter of moments. She was about to learn martial arts, but then takes part in a rather abrupt matchmaking celebration and ends up trying to drown a cat and... more>> marries the third prince?

Confusing. The translation is nice, but the work itself is hard to read. Events do not flow smoothly and fights are kinda messy.

2/5 and I stopped at chapter 18. <<less

It reads like a mystery novel with action/cultivation as a theme and it seems like plotting and revenge is the plot.

Very interesting. I get sooo agitated for the MC The male lead seems like a bastard too. How dare he treat her that way.

a modern female assassin was reincarnated into a good for nothing girl. Rather than accepting her fate, she avenged the former body's grudge by playing around people who bullied and mistreated her. Kind of similar to DKC except this one has comedy and the plot sometimes kind of rushes. Jin lan also knows her limitation and her background of her existence is mysterious. Looking forward to her badass action.

Bad ass assassin lady. Reincarnation. Hot brooding princes. Action. Romance. This is exactly the kind of novel I look for. Jumpy pace but it does not get in the way of enjoying this (not so original but who the bleep cares) novel. Daily updates by the translator and editor, I couldn't ask for more. Read it if u like demon king chases his wife. :) 5/5

Its pretty good, similar to dop and demonic king chases his good for nothing wife.

But be warned, the story jumps around alot and can make you lose track of what is going on.

So far it is entertaining up to chapter 12.. If it is as twisted yet funny as The Demon King Chases His Wife: A Good For Nothing Miss, it will be damn good.. I am seeing it a bit in that direction, an assassin reincarnated into a pitiful miss, call me full of anticipation :) giving it 5/5 also due to good editor and translator

I don't know if it's the translation or the original, but if feels like they picked the most interesting chapter out of every 5 or 6. What I mean by that is it seems to lack the transition chapters so it feels very jumpy and disjointed. One moment she's getting revenge on someone, the next they're in the middle of a spring festival. Just difficult to follow.

Sub par and generic. I won't go into details as you can obviously guess what happens in a clone story like this. Guess it doesn't really matter since it was dropped, but my opinion is don't even bother as this is pretty much half a mouthful of low quality translated mini chapters. Anyone who reads at even a steady pace will finish of what's been translated in an hour or two and feel like they lost that time for no reason and can never get it back.

I mean, the title... more>> alone should let you know. "Congratulation Empress"? I should be, Congratulations Empress. With an S. -_- <<less

This one is your run-of-the-mill transmigration-revenge novel with a female MC that is 'supposed to be' really 'smart' and 'ruthless' but doesn't really live up to the expectations. The MC, who is supposed to be really skilled in assassination seems more like a naughty and reckless child. All she does is provoke people intentionally and create ruckus. I honestly don't understand her actions and the reasons behind them. The author keeps trying to make her 'mysterious' but the MC just seems like a child playing make-believe-espionage and keeps on throwing... more>> temper tantrums. The novel is all over the place. It feels like the author forgot what was written in the previous chapter and started writing without caring about the continuity between 2 chapters. The other characters seem pretty much like cardboard cutouts. The story itself has great potential and that's the only reason I gave it a 3 despite the poor execution by the author. However, after reading up to ch 58, my patience is running thin and at this point, I can only hope that the author will become a bit more sensible and not ruin the good plot through the poor execution. The translation is good enough. So, if you want, you can give a try. <<less

Slow, but good translation. Interesting plot, I do enjoy the whole tit for tat if you will. The character takes a different stance in some regards to the stereotypical revenge transmigration plots, not so much with the whole revenge but from how she interacts with those around her and her upbringing while others are pretty normal. I hope for more! *Fingers crossed*
