Enchantress Amongst Alchemists: Ghost King’s Wife


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!

So far so good. It is the typical reincarnated-transferred to another body novel where the MC was a good for nothing, ridiculed, scorned, and loses what she has. Then suddenly sh*t happen... MC become a cold hearted, crafty, peerless genius and all the people's jaw drop to the floor due to shock.

Well I like the MC's personality... Like Black bellied doctor MC but not that cold hearted, but still someone not to be mess with... Male MC so far is currently surrounded by mist, full of mystery.

Translation is good... more>> and done well. Good job TLer's and editors. <<less

This story isn't worthy of appreciation.

People finds error in everything MC do, always jealous of MC to the point of ridiculously.

It's fine if the author covers it, but this is truly a slap to readers. It's ridiculousness is infinite, I can't even fathom. The males in the story is all fond of MC, the main male lead is jealous to the point of choking the readers. I mean, come on?! Are u seriously serious ? Idk idgf anymore. Dropping this.

Truthfully I only SKIMMED the story from the beginning up to 400 chapters before I'm unable to tolerate it any longer. I'm glad I didn't actually waste my time reading it. The whole story is a freaking MESS. Incarnate this incarnate that, everyone don't have to worry about dying cause they will sooner if not later incarnate again. You know about cockroach villains who refuses to die every single damn time? In this story, sure they'd die but then POOF - there they are again, reincarnated! This story seemed like... more>> it doesn't have any rule, law or higher powers that maintains stability or whatnot. IT IS SUCH A HUGE MESS. I'm out. <<less

Basically the story is about a man and a woman who are madly in love with each other. Then there's a woman#2 that was also very in love with the man. She killed both of them so that in another lifetime she will have a chance with the man.

I don't know how the author managed to make a plot out of this idea but good job. It's not just interesting enough anymore as you progress.

It's a decent read. I like the dynamic between the female lead and her love interest, especially early on. However, the more recent chapters haven't been doing it for me. The entire point of the novel seems to have changed, although there wasn't much of a plot to begin with.

The story seems shallow overall. People in power, the MC's allies included, are all more than happy to use their power and influence to trample on those weaker than them. They even have the guts to complain about someone mistreating one... more>> of their own for the same reason. It also goes on and on about how earth-shatteringly handsome/beautiful important character X, how jealous all the cannon fodder are of their skills/wealth/appearance, etc.

Good as a time-killer. <<less

I waited until 400 to see if it got better, but nope. The translator's skills got this a three, otherwise it would have been a two. Even for the genre, the characters are shallow, unlikable and cold. The novel is incredibly repetitive, the enemies are unbelievably s*upid, completely illogical, and no one learns anything, ever. Except the leads who never have to work for anything and never have to break a sweat.

We're told that people love each other, but the only way they show that is by them murdering others... more>> for the sake of the people they care about. This is absolutely on purpose. Whole years are skipped as we leap from confrontation to confrontation, with nary a scene of genuine human emotion intruding on the constant descriptions of beauty and beatings. We don't care about these people because we're never actually allowed to see their lives. For God's sake, the author even skipped the wedding night they spent about 300 chapters getting to except for the arguments and revenge. If you're writing a romance and leave the romance out, you're kinda doing it wrong, lol.

The sad part it that the initial set up contained that it contained the kernel of a great idea for a cultivation novel: 'poisoned tr*sh girl meets mentally damaged but powerful boy. Discarded by others, with each others help they grow and survive.' Wouldn't that have been more interesting than what it turned out to be? I may write that.... <<less

the 1st Xiao Qi Ye's novel I read and when I read this I fell in love with it right away. I love the plot, I love Mu Ru Yue with her coldness and her abilities, I love Ye Wu Chen and their handsome kids. Powerful and good looking family. What's not to love?! There are some minus here and there but I don't mind because I enjoyed the story very much.

I like reading this novel, at first. The FMC is quite likable, she has cold personality however insanely protective toward people she cares.

She's ruthless and unfeeling though. For example there's one instance where she saw a horse with carriage run full speed about to hit 4 years old girl. The only reason she saved the kid cause she felt something from the little girl otherwise she won't bother doing the saving.

The more I read the more bored and pissed I became. There is no plot, no excitement at all. Everything... more>> that happen is rinse and repeat events after events. The main characters turn flat the only improvement they have is their cultivation.

The plots always go like this :

- Side character introduced.

- If female, she would be going googly eyes for ML and pissed at FMC for being unworthy for him (only she is worthy). Thus scheming like crazy until she either dead or, cripple cultivation. And if her family helped out then the family facing disaster too.

- If Male, he would be going ga ga for FMC which make another insignificant female side character who loves this side male character acts with vengeance against FMC cause the one they like won't even look at them. Again same thing happen; scheming, result either dead or cripple. Same thing with their family too.

- The amount of sentences of 'I only love her in this life past, present and future. Blah blah. Some more devoted love announcements words.'

- The amount of sentences describing godlike good looking ML. The same for FML.

- The one that irk me, there's a lunatic bit*h aiming to destroy FML and this couple dare to go seperate ways almost all the time. Geez, talk about a forced way to make the bit*h aim at them one at a time.


The one that pissed me off the most is the over used plot of this crazy bit*h that's like a parasite soul hopping for thousand years since she can't have the ML she destroyed their whole family/clan including FML and ML and chopped off all limbs of their 5 years old son.

She then keep waiting on the prowl for their reincarnations so she can do it all over again causing disaster cause she still can't get the ML this time around too.


Honestly, I'm exhausted reading this story. I just want to move on from that plot cause it turn the story flat despite promising premise. Often I skip cause I just want to continue with the story. <<less

Nothing technically wrong with the story, but there is no filler so the characters turn flat.

No backstory other than absolutely required by the plot.

No dialogue between characters with the purpose of fleshing out their relationship.

No scenes that do not include vital plot developments.

So it all just turns into a forced march of a story. People's relationships can't all be explained by the narrator...

Well. At first I found the FL really crafty, but when the story goes on, I noticed some "defects":

  1. The story's beginning is similar to The Anarchic Consort and then to Ghost Emperor Wild Wife
  2. People are either really helpful or vengeful. This is a too distinct division
  3. The FL is not that clever (I mean, she is... but doesn't value the situation more)
  4. The Sect that FL created wasn't written for a long time. It's like it didn't exist.
  5. The time passing from an event to the next have not credit: it changes from 3 days to nearly 6 months without something happening even if it should.
... more>>

For example, when the FL discovered Wu Chen was in the academy and looked for him, the fake mistress girl told her that he will return soon because it was already a long time that he was out. But after some time FL went to the Archive Library and cultivated here 6 months. After that she encountered a group of silly and jeaulos girls and WuChen saved her at last moment.


6. They repeat too much "I am his/hers"

7. Enemies or protagonists little asses when are in dangerous situations are saved at the last second. This is too annoying.

8. Helpers speak (reveal the truth) in front of obvious enemies. How come they are so s*upid???

9. Ya know, that people recognise auras? Sometimes mysteriously it doesn't work.

10. FL replies are getting repetitive. Ok, you disdain people who doesn't deserve your attention, but before more powerful people... you are weak. Ok, you know best when battle, but enemies have connections with stronger enemies. <<less

A simply written whatever bad idea comes to mind story. Never felt so hateful, annoyed and rage reading such bad plots. It was bearable to read at the earlier stage of the novel, have ups and downs but still a decent read I might say.

... more>>

The author tries to bring a story of a deep bond between lovers, friend (s) and family member (s) from previous or another life to the recent time of the story. Eventhough ML and FL lost the previous life's memories, but for the strong intimate feelings they managed to tangle upon one another and hook up again. I get the picture of what the author is trying to potray, and it has a deep, emotional touch and feelings to it, but the poorly arrangement plots, bad expressions, needless arguments and worse of all, a simply 'I write whatever I want, even if it's a worthless idea' wasted the potentials.

It was pretty ok, not so bad to read up to a certain chapter (it did have rushed scenes or sudden end of an arc), beyond that, one would want to pull the hair from the scalp from anger/frustration/annoyed/irritated/mind blowing reading the bad drama and stuffs. I mean, not just the couple who died transmigrated/reincarnated came to the same world and at almost the exact same time, even the nemesis came as well (maybe there was an explanation on how on earth they manage to get to the same realm and time, I don't really remember thou) just because she wants to own, heads over heels, crazy for the ML (it's not time traveling genre), not just she tried once failed but a second, third, fourth and so on to no avail, she even been killed several times, needless she is brought back to life, and the same thing repeats, getting rid of FL and get the ML scheme. The actions are dull nothing much to expect, the fights/killings done simply on a whim "nothing personal, I just don't like you... Kill"

Welp, there are other characters came along which should been killed but saved, one in particular brought back into the plot, for no strong reason she bare deep hatred, out to kill kind of jealousy towards FL/MC. Long story short, it was rather a not so bad story earlier but turned bad and worse further up.

Welcome to the newest Saturday morning cartoon!!

That's what I can't help but think of when I read this novel. The first couple hundred "chapters" (i say this in quotes as they're tiny) or so are the same generic stuff you're used to when a stone cold female MC ends up in the body of some tr*shy young miss. However, things really start going more and more downhill once the big bad villain comes in. I'll leave the rest in spoiler quotes..

... more>>

She never friggen dies. The villain I mean. I'm pretty sure they've killed this woman twice already in the novel so far alone. She just jumps from body to to body. Into some body of a girl who's in some powerful sect which is always juuuuuuust a little stronger than the level of the MC and ML, making it so that whole powerful sect or group goes after the MC and ML. Then the MC and ML get stronger by reaffirming their love or popping a pill and kill her, and she dies.. only to reappear like 50 chapters later in a new body of another girl in a sect or group that's once again juuuuuuuuust a little stronger than the level of the MC and ML. Of course for some reason none of these sects or groups ever question why this girl has suddenly completely changed her personality and has grown an obsession for some guy.. It just.. doesn't make sense to read.

What's really annoying is the ML has shown a few times already that after killing someone, he can grab their soul and burn it to ashes or whatever so they never come back.. Didn't think of doing that at all?

This is what I mean by saturday morning cartoon. A villain who keeps being beaten yet escapes only to come back in the next episode with a new dastardly plan. It gets old extremely fast. I'd rather read the generic route where everyone of these plans are thought up by some new throw away villain instead of this insanely jealous women they can't seem to kill permanently.


To be honest, the villains in this novel aren't really believable. They almost fall in love with either the MC or ML, like within half a page, and start making plans to kill off the other spouse so they can "have the person all to themselves". When they're caught in whatever plan they tried, they scream and moan that the MC isn't good enough for the ML or vice versa, right to their faces. Or they challenge one of them to some sort of death competition, claiming they will have the one they want if they win... They pretty much go bat sh*t crazy. What person would act this way thinking it was the way to make a person love them? I'll kill the person you're obviously deeply in love with, and then you'll fall in love with me instead?.. Huh?.. It's like the arrogance dial is dialed up to 111111, to the point where it's kind of embarrassing to read, as it's not very well written. <<less

It was good for a while, but it started to fall in quality, until I had to drop it. Some of the reasons:

... more>>

MC was held against her will by a guy, and her cultivation restricted. Her life was in danger because of the guy, and she lets him live after she gains her freedom. Then, a villain appears that keeps coming back from the dead. The only reason she killed the MC and her family in the past life, and attempting the same in the current life, because ML rejected her. What did it for me, the MC finally reconnects with her current blood family. Also finds her reincarnated son, who she witness tortured and killed by villain in past life. Yet, she spends more time with ml, then ML leaves (to protect MC from powerful sect) to a different realm, and she follows immediately leaving her family behind. Immediately in the new realm, she meets a “beautiful” man, and a jealous girl.

You can't help but love this MC. She might be dense with her feeling but she is very expressive. She is not a person who judge people by their cover. She is also very fair and just. After people commit wrong, if they decided to repent they will not be treated badly after getting a fair punishment but if they still insist on revenge, no one can blame her for being ruthless. Or more likely, people around her being ruthless to them. MUHAHAHAHAHA. Cough cough.

I like it very much that... more>> Yue'er [MC] is powerful and domineering. She is powerful but that is because she worth it with how she always nearly sacrifice her life to reach further ranks to top on top of the world. This is one of few novel that really have worthy male lead for heroine to love. The Male lead refuse to even look at other women aside the heroine. Some may say that it is kind of illogical for the male lead to not even have any interest on any other woman aside the MC but I think it very logical for the character to be like that.

[Not spoiler] Ghost king is someone exceptionally powerful and regard all gender equal except for Yue'er. Only her can make him destroy even himself on his own and willing to be a rug for Yue'er to warm her feet as long as she wished for it.


Extremely doting but he is a genuine jar of vinegar. He couldn't even stand his own son who was still a baby take his time with his wife.

I laughed many times. There have yet to be a moment where I need to cry but I can feel pity and wrenched heart when their only son had his limps amputated and thrown in front of them. Their son didn't die and had to live thousand year to wait for his parent to reincarnate and reunite with them.


Although there is second or more male leads, they really unworthy for Yue er. So, those that felt disappointed with the tragedy of second male leads, don't worry since this novel really has a worthy main male lead. I can assure you that for five hundred chapters, I have yet to felt disappointed in the main characters. Except that it was inevitable because the author also need to think logically, the male lead couldn't be at few important moment because of author's doing. <<less

This novel is too disproportionate for my taste. You get the usual MC's family treats her like dirt and the MC gets strong and shows them, and I love my ruthless MCs, but the crime can be anywhere between trying to kill her and trying to take her love interest and the punishment for all of them is horrible r*pe and torture (and only to the females really).

... more>>

One particular scene was a servant of the ML trying to get them to have s*x so that both of them can be protected from their enemies, bit shady with the use of date r*pe drugs and expectation of becoming the ML's concubine but does that warrant the ML sending her to be eaten alive by snakes? They even say it's the most horrible torture he has


The ML is a creepy yandere stalker. They say he's a good guy because unlike every other guy in the series he likes monogamy. He takes advantage of the MC's empathy of his feigned mental disorder in the first few chapters to molest her, he tortures, maims and kills anyone who so much as say hi to the MC, and he tries to control the greatly OP Xianxia MC any time he gets the chance. None of that is a bad thing in the series because he's pretty and says she is his only one. <<less

A brainless novel to waste ur time.

All the antagonists are terrible. The women are portrayed as delusion horny. And the men (mostly as followers or bystanders) are portrayed as either think with their d*ck or so brainless that made em easy to manipulated by even the dumbest plot / act from the female antagonist.

MC potrayed as mary sue, while ML potrayed as sex-addicted gary stu that made him even brawl with pets and their child for MC`s affection.

i suggest u read this when u have no other novel to read... more>> on, but after 200-300chapters u probably gonna bored to death by the repeated s*upid plot.

One thing that kinda refreshing (altho doesn't help much) is the tl notes on almost every end of the chapters. <<less

So it was a really good story but I guess the author didn't map the story down neatly.

... more>>

Even though I could see the proper development of the MC, the supporting characters come and go too much. Especially to what I think was some important character like her eldest son whom disappeared halfway through the story and came back at the final chapter. Well, I do understand that they are focusing on the son and daughter of the MC in her current lifetime, both of which have mysterious power behind them. I just wonder where all the organizations and every piece of land that she conquered have gone to. Even the jumping of era where she fell onto some time warp and got time traveled to one of her lifetimes which is the future where she also died. And did I mention that she have 3 sets of parents? First from her current lifetime, second, her parents in her future lifetime and third, her father at her previous lifetime? Yes, they all appeared in the story thank you.


Even though it may sound like I found a lot of plot holes on the story, the romance and development was steady. She wins and loses like a normal person. I just wished there was some epilogue like showing what happened after she returns and living happily ever like that. <<less

One of the best Xuanhuan novel ever!!!

This is simply an amazing novel. Sure, in the beginning the part where the MC came from another world and was a 'tr*sh' aren't really what you can call original. But who are we to judge simply because of that? I say, I don't regret continuing to read the story. The further you read the more you'll realize that the plot is more deeper than you expected and it gets more unique.

These are the best parts of the story, for me, that is:

*The... more>> protagonist, Mu Ru Yue, isn't exactly 'overpowered'. Though her cultivation speed is faster than the norms, there are still many more people who are stronger than her. And she knows this and understand her own limits and strength.

*Her love interest, Ye Wu Chen, is mysterious and very powerful. But his greatest charm is how he genuinely cares and loves Mu Ru Yue. I miss the parts where Ye Wu Chen used to act like a 'child trapped in a grown man's body' and stole kisses from Mu Ru Yue. Simply adorable!

*There is no "harem" because Ye Wu Chen is very loyal to Mu Yu Rue and won't ever dare to look at another woman. And though Mu Ru Yue attracts a lot of male attention, only Ye Wu Chen has that 'special place' in her heart.

*There are mysteries yet to be discovered about Mu Ru Yue and Ye Wu Chen's past. It's interesting and tells that there's more to the story than what you think, which, of course, open a lot of opportunities for more enemies/rivals and twists in the plot.

*The story's just so lovable and leaves you asking for more. ♥️♥️♥️ <<less

Typical reincarnation story: strong female transmigrates into the body of a not so powerful female in another time. There are 1500+ chapters, so some major conflicts are still not completely solved while there are plenty of minor conficts get dragged out and solved.

(At this point you've uncovered much of the MC's true identity). I think the story is starting to reveal the ML's true identity now, but Yan Jin's strength has only just progressed and his conflicts will unlikely be solved until much later

You get to witness the rise and downfall of many powerful yet delusional villains (most of whom are jealous females and their supporters). You'll get frustrated how can people be so delusional, but let me tell you this is not far from real life unfortunately. People always want what they can't have, and spoiled people will always feel entitled.
You also get to witness the growth of the MC in her strength and also in her love life. She increases her own strength (and others) in both alchemy and martial arts. She learns to accept love and to love, despite keeping her ruthless personality. She softens for those whom she cares about, but is ruthless otherwise.

Like mother, like daughter

You learn about the true identities of the MC and ML as you read on, with plenty of hints foreshadowing such info and there are plenty of plot twists. Some of these twists do become predictable just before they happen though. Nonetheless, it's still very exciting! Chapters are a good length - enough to give you action, imagery, and dialogue as well as suspense each time. I'm very thankful the translator provides teasers for the next chapters and there are almost daily updates. Of all of the reincarnation stories I read/I've read, I find this one the most interesting.

Other reviews have said its weaknesses better than I can, I'll just add this:
Using rape, torture and bodily dis-figuration for karmic retribution, to "evil characters" that were only caricatures is a trope that is used by so many stories, I get that. When it is written this cheap and badly though, it lowers the quality of the work.
... more>>

The adopted sister who actually poisoned the MC only got humiliated by her, but the younger sister, who abused the MC verbally, was attacked by other men while the MC watched and forced by the Ghost King to marry a disfigured fella who has sadistic tendencies and already claimed two lives. For example, that girl called an old man a beggar and the proper response for a man that old, a grandmaster of a sect to boot, is to kick a brat with no innate powers into a tree? Really?
