In order to inherit her father’s military exploits, she began a miserable life. With great effort she managed to live until 16 and could finally be able to choose to marry and have cute buns when her supposedly dead father resurrects, throwing her into the federation’s First Men’s Military School.

Unfortunately, thus Ling Lan walked down the cold, disorderly, and domineering path, drifting further and further away…..

At first I was skeptical of all these 5 star reviews being a some sort of Qidian conspiracy... but after reading it, it's actually rather interesting.

Just kinda think of it as a somewhat xianxia plot (kinda), but sci-fi and with a crossdressing MC haha. Honestly tho, it's pretty refreshing to see a female in this type of "manly" setting. Crossdressing hijinks are something to look forward to too ;3

Basically our MC Ling Lan dies at 24 due to a long term illness. Before her soul can scatter, she's saved by... more>> this super advanced AI thing and dragged through space and time into the future (not the future where the AI is from tho). In that future, there's mechas and hover cars and cultivation and such. Ling Lan has a golden finger with super good body constitution and spiritual power and a training system and a good lineage, but things don't go so easy for her in this military dominated society. Seems like it'll head into politics/interstellar war territory too, so that's something I'm looking forward to.

Not sure if you can consider our MC as a Mary Sue, but it's a nice change from all those vengeful female assassins and doctor geniuses these Chinese female protagonist novels are usually plagued with. She's cool and kickass in her own way, not to mention that since she's crossdressing, she shouldn't have to be subjected to the weak and pretty stereotypes for females you see a lot... then again I can't read ahead (dunno a lick of Chinese) so I can't guarantee anything. Let's hope the male lead doesn't stick to the stereotypes either.

Give it a shot up to 34 if it peaks your interest, then switch over to Qidian if you feel like it has enough worth to continue. The translation quality of both have been really satisfying so far. <<less

Very nice, though I feel sometimes we have better technology now, that the future in the story, but this was probably rewritten a while ago, so I can understand.

So this is a mix of technology and martial arts. It is very amusing, I can't wait for more updates. Qidian International has always had stable updates on the stories I've read. I'm so very happy that they've picked it up.

Anyways, she got this "system" which is super cute, and I love how there's not to much drama, it just subtle reminders,... more>> that not everything is perfect, and the MC needs to grow stronger.

We get to see her grow, it is very fun to read. I can't say much without spoiling it, so just read it. <<less

As of now, this is a great novel, and while it's a reincarnation story, the story is original in the fact that the MC gets reborn into a world where there are galactic wars, mechas and spiritual energy! So no massive déja-vu for now.

The translation is well done, no error that make you cringe, so thank you translator♥

... more>>

The MC is a girl who died in her previous world because of having too much spiritual energy, she gets reborn in a sc-fi kind of world (mecha, federation,..) where her new father is lost in a war. To make sure she gets her rightful inheritence, her mother disguise her as a boy


I recommand it, since it's a very good story to read and not repetitif at all.

i just hope that there will be more chapters in the futur if possible!!! <<less

im still quit at the beginning of the novel

but I believe that this is really nice to read!

Its not the usual rebith story where the MC is gonna take revenge and change fate bla, no!- Its far more interesting (even thought there is the sci-fi element because of the futuristic world) its a mix of different elements which show that the story will definitivly be entertaining.

Ehem the socalled elements are for example that shes being acompanied by a "system", or the fact that she is forced to crossdressed and there... more>> seems to be a secret matter with her soul...

all in all its a good read

but unfortunately we are still at the beginning of the novel! <<less

This is an enjoyable read if you want action, comedy, gender bender and an female protagonist!

It is set in a futuristic setting, where something I would normally stay away from because of 'expectations' or 'depictions' of what the future would become. But this novel made me a captivated, even with this setting, which is pretty awesome.

The translation quality is also good, that is understandable and actually readable.
