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

The previous owner of Mu Ru Yue’s body had been poisoned. Because of this, her meridians were blocked, hindering her cultivation, which eventually led to her being known as tr*sh. After being beaten to death, Mu Ru Yue, who had originally been a successor to a medicinal aristocratic family in Hua Xia, reincarnated into her new body.

They want to seal my path?

I will train to reach the peak of the realms!

They give me a foolish prince as my husband?

I can make do with him.

It would be easier for me to deal with him, rather than with other candidates who would be thrown at me in the future. I shall strive to become powerful enough that nobody will be able to mock or kill me!

First to rate.

As the editor, I'm bias. I do have reasons for this bias though. This story is better, to me, than Descent of the Phoenix and Demonic King Chases his wife. It's a lot more cuddly, and the OPness of the MC is better written. At the same time, the characters are more expansive, and you even feel some pity for the villains. However, NEVER MESS WITH THE PRETTY FEMALE MC!!!

And I actually do ship the MC and the male lead...

Plus, damn, that male lead has laaaaaayers...

If you're looking for something with a new and unique plot, you've come to the wrong place. But, if you're looking for something to quench that OP, manipulative Female MC, hot guy passion then you've come to the right place. Although it's not really original, it's still a good story and something to snack on while we wait for updates of Chu Wang Fei, Demonic King, and Black Belly Miss etc.

The way females are portrayed in this novel is horrible. Except for the FL and her allies, every female in this novel make me disgusted. Once they see a handsome guy, they throw away any kind of dignity and use any available means to obtain him. Rejection and humiliation only motivate them to continue and even in death they refuse to accept the truth. It's really difficult to enjoy this novel, when these kind of women are everywhere. Just when you think it's over, another woman with the exact same... more>> horrible personality appears. It's really frustrating to see the FL getting harassed over and over again because of her relationship with the ML. Even when the ML is cruel to them, they never blame him. Instead they fall more in love with him and hate the FL even more. <<less

Decent start.

There will be two types of readers who will like this oft-told story of a powerful figure who transmigrated into the body of a good-for-nothing girl:

1. Someone who has never read this type of story before and thus would find everything to be interesting, and
2. Someone who had read many such stories before and like to read more, but prefer a faster pacing.

For those in (1), this series will serve as a decent introduction to the genre. From the initial 15 chapters, all the usual tropes are touched... more>> upon.

For those in (2), it offers nothing truly groundbreaking but moves along quickly enough so that a seasoned reader won't get bogged down. The usual events proceed blazingly fast. Within 15 chapters we are introduced to a fallen, powerful woman, her new identity who had a good-for-nothing reputation and limited martial potential, a scheming sister, a cold-hearted royalty fiance, an extremely biased father, a secret magical entity and a handsome stranger who was intrigued by her rough manners. Since the story is listed as completed, I hope the translation speed would be quick enough to sustain the interests of readers as each chapter is relatively compact. <<less

Two stars for a tolerable start

The beginning chapters are okay-usual tr*sh MC becomes strong and curb stomps all her enemies into oblivion (sorta). The romance was even decent if sorta forced because she mostly saw the dude as what he presented (a mentally impaired kid) rather than a prospective love interest.

But then the middle and later chapters because so ???? I just felt unable to continue. The ploys concocted are cheap, the author seems to like to use r*pe as both a plot device and a punishment tool which is... more>> disgusting. Why do the girls get tormented while the guy gets away mostly scot free? And why use such gross means? They could have just used torture jeez

Additionally, the writing is relatively subpar. The thought process of the MC seems to have little to no depth and the ploys of others are simplistic and pathetic. I really don't see the development of the romance and the guy becomes sort of a douche later on while he was quite cute early on sigh

At first it was a guilty pleasure but now it's all sorts of terrible I just feel guilt. Read if you're really out of body transmig op MC novels I guess but it's more worth your time to just re read the good ones you've already read:') <<less

This novel can best be described as a good first try, and that's because this is exactly what that is.

Enchantress Amongst Alchemists is Xiao Qi Ye's first novel, and it clearly shows.

He has 3 novels so far:

... more>> Enchantress Amongst Alchemists - good first attempt

Evil Emperors Wild Consort - solid novel

Ghost Emperor Wild Wife - very much worth a read

Xiao Qi Ye has shown significant improvement's in his writing between novels, and that's the main reason to read this novel. If you have enjoyed his other works, it's nice to get a sense of his humble start.


The author clearly started with many ideas for the story, but Enchantress Amongst Alchemists has many problems, not the least of which are:

  • Extremely disjoint story. The transitions between arcs are random and sometimes mind boggling
  • MC as a ridiculously large number of relatives, something like 4 sets of parents (not counting the family of the male lead), 3 child (all older than her in a sense). Her relationships are so complicated, that every interaction is so awkward and hard to believe. None of the relatives seems real, and all of them end up being one dimensional and meaningless to the story.
  • The author can't write battles at this point, all of the fights result in her standing in place and taking punches, then saying "this isn't even my final form", and the opponent goes "No! How can this be!" and admits defeat without continuing the fight. The alternative is the fights being extremely trivial. However, the author greatly improves on this area in subsequent novels, in particular, the fights in Ghost Emperor Wild Wife are much more descriptive.
  • The author keeps telling you about how some things are important or incredible, and when it comes to push and shove, the actual events are unremarkable and easy to gloss over.
  • After the initial parts of the novel where the male lead is some what different from the stereotypical ones, male lead becomes close to the worst one I've ever read.

Perhaps the best example to this novel's deficiencies is that the final boss have NO name. The novel just refers to the final boss as something equivalent of "super ultra level great beast", and this guy just came out of nowhere. The fight itself is 90% people talking with 10% being the MC setting up some magical array which she learned at a completely randomly time from some completely random person who has no significance what so ever, with exception to the fact that novel mentions that she became really strong at some point for some inexplicable reason that's not explained in the story. And this person also never actually make any cameos in the story.

The author's clearly had many good ideas, but they are just poorly put together. At certain points in the novel you can actually read the author's frustrations in the writing, which becomes very abrupt and rushed. It feels like that author can't wait to end it.
However, everyone has to start some where, and I am actually looking forward to his next novel. Stay to read the humble starting point of one of the better growing authors in this category, this novel is very solid for what it is.

Story is not very good. Even as a guilty pleasure this story is still not very good. Nothing is explained, there are gaping plot holes, there is no struggle or challenge for the MC, and characters are jarringly extreme. It reads like an outline rather than a complete story.

Xianxia novels tend to reuse the same tropes and characters but are fun in how they go about it. The best ones introduce something unique or demonstrate above avg writing. This story offers nothing new and the writing is below avg. It's... more>> a shameless Mary Sue where nothing goes wrong for the MC. Mary Sues can be fun in a superhero-esque way. But even superheroes need some struggle to be exciting and there is non to be found in this story. Every time something is needed, conveniently some occurrence happens that drops it into the MC lap the following chapter. The author doesn't even try to create any suspense or proper drama. The MC is always calm, cold, amazing, most beautiful, most talented, and can just rudely do whatever she wants because she's amazing. Characters suffer from universal s*upidity and linear thinking. Yes, most Xianxia have a seemingly tr*sh MC who is treated poorly who later becomes OP and makes them regret. While they're cheap and easy villains to prop up the MC they usually still display at least superficial amounts of development. The characters in this story are some of the most painfully one-dimensional characters I have ever read. They're behavior is so linear and extreme that it is jarring and unbelievable. Nothing is explained or developed properly. Events suddenly happen and are over within 1-2 chapters. The 'tournament arc' happens within a single chapter. Supporting characters conveniently appear, offer maybe a paragraph or two of reasoning for their support o MC, and then are only seen when MC needs something. Development doesn't happen, just the MC rapidly progressing to OP-ness.

This story is too common to waste time on. It doesn't offer anything unique to offset the terrible writing. In a genre flooded with almost identical stories of superior quality, there really is little motivation to trudge through this one. Suggestion for those who like this story but would want something a step up, I would recommend Demon Wang’s Golden Favorite Fei. It's almost the same but better in every way. Genius Doctor: Black Bellied Miss is another in the genre that's also very good. <<less

Sometimes, I wonder how the characters could even connect the evil deeds back to the mc? They hate the MC so much they just blame the MC for every wrong done to them randomly.

Character gets beaten up in the middle of the night by a random stranger: It's all that the mc's fault.
Character's master starts mistreating them: It's all the mc's fault
Characters trip over a pebble on the sidewalk: It's all the mc's fault

Funnily, they actually hit the nail on the head.

I love the fact she's a cold demon and merciless. This is the first time I'm reading a MC girl CN. But the Romance is too dam weird! Wtf? The so called 'mu*derous Demon' kissed with a 10year old you just met? She fell in love to dam easily!! I loved her cold gaze and how she doesn't give a f*ck about anyone but none of these guys are worth for her! Anyways, this quickly changes and she's not cold at all..

The Villains are half ass too. The first... more>> page they are evil then the next couple of moments they turn to a 180 completely and start regretting who've they offended.

I'm really sad because the Romance mostly ruined this! The Author is just sloppy writing for this MC...

Suddenly the older sister who was the main villain is in tears because the prince has other women.. But isn't that natural since he's royalty? And she's crying about it! Wtf after causing a lot of damage to MC this was your breaking point? Then she gets r*ped by the guy she loved! This is s*upid.

The MC husband also has been obviously lying to her that he's a honest and pure king but she still forgives him! I don't like it.

I do like the fact its anti polygamy! We see the perspective of Women being forced to married or being concubine. The feeling of wanting to be first and not sharing their spouse.

I love how she pats her pet beast like a villain. It's like Dr. Evil lol. But she's not evil at all. Even though the Author states her as a cold demon. But her heart is swaying so much emotionally.. truly s*upid.


This is filled with the most clichéness and predictable ideas... sigh it had good potential too. <<less

What can I say about this novel...

I can really only describe it like this: A 12 year old writes their first story as a parody of cultivation novels and intentionally makes every thing in the story a cliche. Not only that, they decide to bump the cliche levels to 11.

Pretty much every other sentence or line is filled with exposition, to the point where you wonder if they actually know they're novel characters. It doesn't change throughout the story, either. Expect to see this situation over and over again;

"That man... more>> is so handsome, I must have him for I am the daughter of an ancient sect who <insert sect history which is largely irrelevant here> and thus only I am good enough for this man! Sir male lead, take me as your woman!"

"But I have a wife..."

"Who cares about that tr*sh, I love you therefor you must love me for eternity and kill that woman because I said so!"


"Damn that sl*t for seducing my man! I heard that she had s*x with every man in the world and is as loose as a school hallway!"

*crowd believes it for no reason and starts berating the MC as if she had slaughtered their entire family*

MC: "But... I didn't do that."

Crowd: "Hah, why would be believe some random sl*t!? KILL HER FOR STEALING THAT OTHER RANDOM WOMANS MAN!!"

*Random side-character is then splattered my MC and ML*

Crowd: "Forgive us, we couldn't recognize Mt Tai!"

Unfortunately, the exposition and ret*rded characters keep coming in every chapter. They'll only leave you scratching your heads and wondering how a brick could reincarnate as a human.

The male lead is also another thing I shake my head over. Sure, he treats the MC well, but he also doesn't act like a husband in the slightest except when he's torturing her on the bed (usual can't get up for 3 days and sore waist included).

He spends the first chapters we get to know him acting as a childlike fool. Despite being married to her, he keeps playing it and even asks himself at one point why he can't make her fall him, despite the fact that he has never once shown his personality to her. Eventually, she finds out he has been lying the whole time and they both laugh it off while the story moves on.

After that, his personality turns into a vinegar jar whose whole purpose in life is to become her only male s*ave. Maybe it's just because I'm a guy and I don't get it, but considering how often they go on about being the only ones for each other for all eternity, you would think their relationship would be slightly more balanced, but she could just call him 's*ave' instead of 'husband' and no-one would know the difference.

I read 1000 chapters but it wasn't anything good. The only thing I can really say is this: If you're looking for a McDonald's cheeseburger to sate your hunger, it might do the trick, but if you enjoy eating food, perhaps it would be better to starve. <<less

I force read this till the very end, because I could and I was hanging on to the hope that it was better.


    • If you like complicated worlds/dimentions/other life stuff its pretty interesting.
    • The love story is good if you like that true love vibe. 10.000 years for you only kind.
    • Faceslaps on point.
    • Handsome/gorgeous people galore.
    • Spoiler

      They went back to the modren world so that wqs new


    • Pretty much repetetive: jelous man/woman try breaking up perfect couple death by karma. New world/dimention/realm another jelous person, death by karma/face slap. Heaven or hell, jealous people, death by face slap. Rinse and repeat.
    • Everyone is 'oh so other worldly good looking' the explanation about how they stand againts the light is 2 paragraphs per-'someone showing up'. Like.. once per person is enough.
    • MC plot armor is pretty much adamantium. Dot expect to see real struggle in cultivating anything besides needing missing pills/herb/whatever... or even a real teacher for that metter.
    • I dont think an author knows how to explain how child and parent relationships work. Trust me.. I'm a mom. She relies on her children too much and not care about them in the next scene. Letting them wander off even with an old soul with no concern is kindda....-.
    • MC pretty much has relatives all over the world and realms, if she doesnt, make one up by master/teacher/s*ave/minion/benefactor/in-law etc etc "relationship", cuz thats the only way author can establish this person as important. Like.. wut? Cant we just be friends and talk, like normal people?

      I had hopes for shu ning, until the eldest son showed up

Well that pretty much it, thats what I took away from 1 week of binge reading.

Not bad, but not great.

The translation was wonderfull thou, gonna take a look at miki's other works after this. :)

To sumarize this novel in one word: Cliche.

If you have read any of this kind of female cultivator novels you already saw every single plot that happens in this story. I'll sumarize them until were I read.

... more>>

Transmigrator into tr*sh body who is not really tr*sh but a genius that can cultivate after surpassing a minor hurdle.

Evil family member plotted to take everything from the MC, including her fiance who is the crown prince. The new body owner will repay the former grievances.

A mighty but cute beast is contracted to the MC for free.

A really strong Male lead that could trample everyone in the kingdom but is hiding in plain sight, falls in love at first sight and tends to pamper and protect the MC from the shadows.

The MC starts to make pills and go up in her cultivation really fast, doing in months what people take dozens of years.

During all this steps there is constant fights with her previous repugnant family and she is faceslapping them again and again while everyone who called her tr*sh is now second guessing their opinions.

Eventually she gets revenge against the family, while the previous fiance who cancelled the engagement tries to get her back, only to be humiliated too.

After getting revenge against, she discovers that she is actually a missing child and her actual family is super strong and far away.

Running down the street? A super important child is about to be run over by a carriage from snob people so that she save her like a hero and start problems with a new family in a new city.


Anyways, you have probably seen them all by now.

Like most people said as well, she's hated by random people without good reason which makes most conflicts kind of dumb. There isn't really a main plot either. It's just these small and petty grievances and unfufilling face slapping of people that keep popping up and hating the MC for no reason.

She also hides her strengths and backers without any reason. She says that her ability to rejuvenate herbs could bring her harm if people knew about it, only to show it in front of crowd a few chapters later for a meaningless alchemy competition that would bring her no benefit.

The cliche plots that look like a macro for this kind of novel, added to the blandness of characters, conflict and lack of a main plot makes this novel unworthy of your time. Unless you never read one of this kind. <<less

Yet another female reincarnation story where the MC cruises through the life she picked up after standing up for herself, barely expending any effort to bat away any 'rivals' that might pop up coz she's just that OP, only to run into new ones... coz.

Again there's nothing original and nothing that really stand out, but it's not intolerable, especially if you're new to the genre. But if you've read 3-4 of them, they're pretty much all the same. 2.5/5

I usually only review my favourite novel but I'll make an exception for this one. Basically, Female MC and transported to other world genre is my cup of tea. I do not even mind the almost same plot. This novel positive side is it slightly faster than DKC. However, despite the MC has been poison until couldn't cultivate by the adopted daughter (MTE) making her treated as tr*sh, her fiancee has been snatched by MTE lead to her beaten to death; MTE is still healthy and alive, just been known... more>> that she not virg*n and still let to be concubine of the man she love (MC ex-fiancee), her deed of poisoning the MC is still not known to others and she still been treated better by MC family than MC herself (I do not know what happened in thousands of chapter later on though). The short chapter is one thing, the translator teaser for every chapter (thats make it 60 time now) to stop at cliff is quite annoying. Furthermore, adding to the flame of the teaser is when we expected the awesomeness but to be turn off with the continuation of slow path and plain outcome. The only reason I am following this novel is due to the regular update. <<less

The MC should have been named Nunya cause her only response is Nunya business. The majority of her problems would never happen except that she refuses to let anyone know her masters/parents/husband. When someone insults her, masters/parents/husband go on a rage spree for insulting their disciple/daughter/wife whereas it would never occur if she just fakking told anyone who her supporters are. The only reason to keep everybody in the dark is so that masters/parents/husband can go on a rage spree. For example, she goes to martial hall looking for her... more>> husband. They ask what her relationship is to him because girls have been mobbing him already, and of course instead of saying he's her husband, she says nunya business. They refuse to state their relationship unless they are together as if they are ashamed of each other. Women are just crappily portrayed as only lustful, vindictive liars. Extremely tired of description about her face every few chapters with no info about the rest of her as she is supposedly growing older. The only description we have is from when she was 13-14 and that 13-14 y/o body is now being banged nightly by a 19-20 y/o large guy. But she has flawless skin, long lashes and wears white because that's all we freakin read about. <<less

At first it was interesting, no matter how cliché was. But then, it went waayyyy down.

... more>>

Basically, when the protagonists starts to remember their past life and the enemy of their past life appears, everything makes nosense. First of all, the main reason for the female antagonist for being such a b**ch was cause she wanted to be a concubine and the ML rejected her straight away, so she went and exterminated all their past family and even tortured and "killed" their child. Ok I get it, but maaaaaan, I have never seen someone so eager for a f*ck, basically her argument was: have s*xual interc**rse with me, again and again, which was lame. And if it wasn't enough, the attitude of the protagonist was so: I don't mine if they kill our families as long as you're only mine, cause sometimes is nice, but they took it to the point of annoying.


I don't really like to left things on the middleway, but with this novel you get at some point when you ask yourself what the f*ck the plot is.

I wanted to rate it with a 1 star, but i'll give them a 2 star, cause proved me than sometimes the hope for the plot gets better can make you a masochist. <<less

I love reincarnation/transmigration, weak-to-strong, female protagonist stories. It's just that I really can't get into this one, there are so many awkward plot points that I even wrap my head around. I'm not sure why so many people like this one.

Firstly, I don't mind the main character being OP, but all the villains find some obscure reasoning to blame the main character. NONE of them can wrap around the idea that their plans were completely s*upid in the first place, or that what they've done wrong might backlash against them... more>> in the future. It's just ALL the MC's fault, no matter what. Always 'I swear that I'll take revenge on you!'.



The Mu family... what is even going on? A four year old child actually poisoning someone else? Send someone, who thinks you're his savior, to kill and r*pe the MC, but when drugged and r*ped herself, ends up blaming the MC for no reason other than gut feeling?

The meeting with her actual family is ridiculously far-fetched. The mother kept bringing up "oh, you're around the same age as my kidnapped daughter." Did I mention my kidnapped daughter? For some reason, they're mysteriously drawn to each other. How mysterious.


Male Lead:


He was absolutely adorable when he was playing the fool, which was the reason why the MC really liked him. He was pure and untainted, child-like. But, then he rips off his mask, and MC is still okay with it? Why? Wasn't she just drawn to him because how pure he was? Turns out he's more sinister than she is, has been lying to her, and pretty much sneaking into the baths and her bed to grope her, but she's still okay with that? Why allow him to continually take liberties with her body when she barely knows him? Don't even get me started on mysterious feelings of attraction.



I can't really wrap my head around it. It's like all side characters are there to awe in her genius or provide her with benefits. Grandmaster doesn't even really teach her. He's just there to give her a house and bully everyone else for bullying MC with how OP he is.

There's so much potential in this story, but it's so poorly constructed. Plots are just thrown in and characters are so flat in the way that they're A) MC's cheerleaders/protectors, B) Villians/jealous people, C) characters there to further the story by being in awe of MC's OPness. >_< <<less

The story began off great with a strong female MC that was eager to improve her skills and prove to her 'evil' family that she was not the tr*sh they knew before. The cliche plot line of course.
... more>>

Once she and the Ghost King meet, the Ghost King completely changes. Where is the cold, arrogant person? All I have ever seen of him is a woeing person that calls around 'wifey' all day long. His personality is dull. He's nice around his wife, mean around other people. Nothing too special about him.

The MC is also dull. She doesn't have a strong trait that keeps you interested in her or something that lets you remember something about her. And neither does she improve or have any changes in her personality. That's not realistic. According to Hume (philosopher), and ego changes even if you think it doesn't. MC doesn't change and remains the same person.

She accepts the marriage to the Ghost King easily. How long have they met? Months? That's hardly anything! She blushes rather easily when she sees him. Isn't it just because the beauty has given her a better impression of him?

The other characters are far too hateful to be real. It's not possible for a person to act so s*upidly when the truth is right in front of their eyes. It makes it boring and repetitive to have such characters.
The story is also far too centered on the main characters and their actions. There is no world that is mentioned so far. No other continents.

MC is also far too strong. She defeats everyone at the alchemist's association and is the most talented out of all of them. -.-

There is literally no STRUGGLE that she ever has. Other good Wuxia stories, such as ATG and ISSTH have a ton of character improvement. Chu Feng has also been repeatedly mentioned as a man with average talent, yet he climbed his way to the top with his strong and perservering personality. I don't see any of that amazingness in this story.

Dull characters. Far too cliche plot line. No interesting world. No character improvement. <<less

This is the author's first novel and that shows so very much. The first 300 chapters were apparently written in two months since he started writing.

The best description I have for the novel is a bad soap opera mixed with a really bad xianxia novel. It does neither well. Multiple characters have been on the verge of death and been saved through nothing but the sheer s*upidity of their opponent. I can understand if your main villain has some trump cards that can allow them to escape from the MC,... more>> but when their escape plan relies on the genius MC and her genius husband to be idiots, it falls rather flat.

As for the combat and pill-making aspects of the novel, while being rather central to developing much of the plot, we know very little about either one of them. The MC is supposed to be a peerless genius in making medicine. This falls far into failing to show not tell. Making pills apparently is nothing more than putting ingredients in a cauldron and melting them. This is the description we get when the MC is the most godly alchemist to ever alchemist.

Combat and cultivation are a mess. There is no other way to put it. Combat seems to be turn-based while you fill a special meter to unleash your true power. That's only slightly hyperbolic. I haven't even the faintest of ideas how cultivation works or how much stronger anyone is compared to anyone else. The MC's parents are big shots in an entire domain yet aren't even remotely powerful. The MC has skills from a previous life where she was supposed to be OP that don't do anything whatsoever. There's no methods to use energy more efficiently, elemental suppression, tactics, strategy, or anything even remotely clever.

If you've run out of reincarnated tr*sh female lead novels then read this. Otherwise, read nearly any other one. <<less
