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!

Ugh, just ugh.

Do you know that feeling when you are bored and decide to read a random xianxia or xuanhuan novel already expecting nothing great, but just want to relieve your boredom ? Well unexpectedly this novel managed the feat to make you even more tired or bored!! How ? It's not that the plot is slow or anything like that, it's just how the characters are ridiculous, specially female characters! They just lack self-esteem so much, they are ready to throw anything for a man, this is ridiculous !

and... more>> for people in cultivation worlds, the characters are just so dumb!! Not even the elders have a spark of intelligence!

Anyway, extremely brainless characters and 1D, or even 0D (if it's possible) villains, they are from noble houses and can't stop saying bit*h left and right.

I only gave two stars because I liked the first dynamics in their relationship where the ML is actually somehow dependant on the MC, but he rapidly turned into the cliche invincible king of hell ML of xianxia novels. <<less

It's Not XIANXIA novel. Doesn't look like it. Theres no explanation how cultivation works. Theres hardly anything that would be described as Xianxia.

The MC, is dumb. She goes to test her innate talent and doesn't hide it. She breaks the mental testing stone and doesn't hide it. WTF. Author than later keeps making enemies that are trying to kill her as they know her talent. There are many ways to create enemies. But why must the MC be s*upid? The Elder that took the test speaks loudly and brags about... more>> the talent infront of an enemy elder (Tian yuan).

She lets her enimies escape hundred times because of her s*upidity.

I just don't get it. Why do you need to stay in your clan knowing that your clan members are trying to kill you, and you are weak af. Author was afraid that she wouldn't be able to stir up conflicts if she were not to be in the clan. <<less

For me writing this review is something that I really can't help but to speak. First of all the story plot is going too fast, yet, there's a moment when it's going too slow too. The ML and FL relationship is not the thing to talk about since they developed their feeling so fast as to trust each other much. I say this story about magic is quite acceptable as it is not going over the simple imagination can see. Some story, I really couldn't imagine about the situation such... more>> as fighting a beast, and going to a spaces between their ring, etc. For this story it's not a bad one thou some part is similar to another story like venerated venomous consort. Like in the chapter 196. I decided to stop from here. If you want to read the story just read and don't read the review yet. Wait until you finished reading, you'll soon know about your own recommendations. <<less

Well, this is a pain.

I quite like this kind of transmigration or reincarnation type novels. And honestly speaking, I like when the MC is OP and face slapping is satisfying. However, this novel comes with bitter disappointment that doesn't show any good plot like Genius Doctor Black Belly Miss or DKC or Poison Genius Consort. The most important part is that this novel lacks a decent plot that drives the story. It is understandable as it is said that this one is the author's first novel. Evil Emperor's Wild Consort... more>> written by the same author is a little better in my opinion.

The novel starts off pretty nice with a transmigrated MC who is better than anyone else but unfortunately treated as a tr*sh. But the story becomes less and less enjoyable due to the women that appears out of nowhere to claim ML. Love rivals are fine but they are too shameless and delusional.I have only heard of female fatales but now I finally read about an unparalleled "male fatale". All the female characters including MC have terrible one-sided minds that is so unrealistic.

I will state some facts that I find really uncomfortable and s*upid in this novel.

-The MC can really solve almost 98% of all her problems if she honestly show off her power, status, and relationships. All the small villains become laughable and pitiful that they are always kept in the dark and always despair when they finally know of MC's super OPness. And then they turn 180 degree turn from being arrogant to "What?Impossible!How can this be?!"

-MC and ML couple is finding trouble for no reason for plot convenience by traveling to different realms for no apparent reason just to find stronger foes. They love fighting, huh.


The MC is the reincarnation of the super strong alchemist called Senior Yue. The ML is also the reincarnation of her lover in past life. That one girl from their past life wanted to marry ML so she killed all their family, amputated their son and finally killing them in heaven tribulation because they got distracted from seeing their son's condition. She is supposed to be the main villain (although her reason for being a villain is s*upid and ridiculous). However, after being a cockroach from time to time, she finally died unsatisfactorily, which lead to the lack of villains!Then the story goes like this-MC goes to a new continent (which obviously has stronger people), get provoked by some random dudes or b**ches, MC retaliates them, a strong "wild"Elder appears who always seem to be on the right time, beats MC up, ML shows up, MC says" this is my fight", MC get a breakthrough in the middle of the fight, the Elder or some other dudes from that something something sects are killed, the sects hunt her down, then MC and ML somehow destroy those sects. This cycle repeats again and again.

Next, the MC has the terrible case of Dark Horse or underdog fetish. Her enemies never know about her. She says that the strong invites trouble. Then she goes on and show off in unimportant "competitions" by being an underdog and then beating the most popular person. No wonder she has so much enemies. One time, her alchemy level is so high but the cauldron she takes to the competition has low rank badge (alchemist skills are identified by that badge), for NO reason and then show off her super skills in font of normies. Also, she is said to be a beauty that could cause the fall of the country but I only see one guy and the ML that fall for her. All other males (and obviously females) hate her. Too much for being a beauty, huh.


I can understand why the characters are only one sided and one dimensional because even the mains can't escape this fate. If you are new to this type of novel, you mighty actually like it. But for sure, you will get bored sooner or later.

-Next is about the villains. Oh, they are so pitiful to the point that I feel so sorry for their existence. They exist just to annoy the readers, nothing more. Every time a crisis rises, there is always a woman coveting the ML from MC.I lost count at the fifth or something girl who wants to become ML's concubine. They will all abandon their family, sects, rationality, shame and even their souls just to be with ML for one night. There is no fighting for a greater cause, the dominance for a rare treasure, the war determining the fate of the continent, nothing!Just the petty females trying to get the D of ML. And the MC spends her time fending off countless admirers of her own husband without doing anything purposeful.

I can go on and on but it's painful to see such a novel with a good potential ruined just because of the lack of creativity in certain areas (sigh, females). After all, these genres are rare and I am willing to read all of them so it's natural that I want them to be at least decent. <<less

This is a good novel. However, the protagonist leaves all of her playing cards out in the field so everyone can see them. She has no back ups as of this point, and basically all of her secrets are exposed. I remember, when she first revealed her power to bring back life to withered plants and increase their age to her master, she said that she wouldn't have revealed it if it wasn't towards someone she trusts. HOWEVER omg this chick goes to a basically huge contest and shows everyone... more>> that very talent of hers. AND THEN the author omg gives her a special pill furnace as a reward and yup she gets targeted. The transitions are also confusing to the point of being annoying and I just find it really s*upid how none of these love crazed ladies ever recover from their s*upidity. It is literally so damn annoying, I see it everytime and I'm sick of it. <<less

This was just tr*sh to be honest. The story was good up until like chapter 40 but then everything went downhill. The main character never faces anything that would trouble her too much because shes overpowered.

The male lead was cute but weird because of how quickly he fell for the female lead. He was acting like he's been dating her for quite a while when he just met her like a day ago. The love plot should slowly develop and not out of nowhere. Because thats how us readers develop... more>> an attachement to their relationship. But here their relationship was forced.

The male lead was acting naive and decieved the female lead, however she quickly brushed it off and acted like nothing happened. The story was just boring after chapters 40/50. I skipped through many chapters thinking the story would get better but it just kept getting worse. To be honest this was just a waste of my time. In conclusion don't waste your time. <<less

Tbh, I fell asleep whenever I tried reading this. At first I thought I was just tired, but three times, it become obvious that this book is boring. I'm not even sure what I've read so far.

There's some points that, I think, is the problem:

  • I don't like how every female antagonist potrayed as shallow jealous characters. Until this very chapter, I counted 4 females had fallen victim to this trope, roll eyes (read Lotus200's review)
  • The plot is repetitive and it always involve jealous woman that tried to 'steal' ML. Boring
  • The conversation flow is stiff and forced. Sometimes borderline cheesy especially between ML and MC. Yawn~~
  • MC is unrealitically too OP and her tasks are easily achieved. There's no room to feel excited, they're just coincidentally at the right time, at the right hand etc... snore
  • Romance is just alright

This is one of my all time favorite novels! The romance is so sweet between the main female lead and the male lead, the plot is well thought out and unravels well as the story progresses and the female kicking ass is always great to read. The translation quality is amazing and you can expect stable releases almost every day so this is really a great novel to pick up and read.

Wow, so far everything seems extremely rushed, it skips pasts arcs like a kid on a sugar high. First she's a weak lady, then she immediately gets better (within the first 10 chapters), then she is a genius at everything then la-di-da-di-dah. Its like all the background has been thrown out the window. The story wants to build something nice, but has too many ideas and things it wants to do, reaching the climax without the introduction and buildup, leaving the conclusion much less satisfying than it could be.

Edit: I... more>> can't stop reading, only for the romance since, I could do without all the faceslapping and 'pulling the roots' stuff.


Like really? Every other judgement borders on the side of 'they deserved it, but was Lin Ruo Ying really that bad of a person? Did she deserve to be given a pill that forces her to have s*x with an ugly person every day for the rest of her life?

When she wanted to be with YWC and kill MRY she:

  1. Did not know he was married
  2. Thought MRY was a sl*t who was bothering YWC
  3. Only declared herself as friend rather than like what NZF did
  4. Was tricked by Qing Xue

This story tries to be progressive (one wife one husband), but reverts to being completely barbaric and s*upid with all the 'You stepped on my toe so I'll kill you' that THE PROTAGONIST also participates in. The saving grace of this entire story is that the author knows how to write love and passion. The rest, in my opinion, could be done away with. <<less

This is a very good paced read, although I think I'd need to take a break.

A lot of things happened - one after another something just keeps happening, it felt like the story never gives you a breather before it throws the next conflict at your face. Will have to pick this up again later.

i am literally amazed at how this was written and plotted out. I must admit that I didn't expect the plot to be that complicated yet nonetheless awesome. Though the reason why I only gave two stars in because I can really predict what's going to happen in some cases.

the MC is your typical bullied girl who becomes strong. I initially thought her to be OP which was not the case at all. She might be strong but that doesn't mean that she can't be defeated. The MLC on the... more>> other hand is really just pure adorableness, handsomeness and awesomeness rolled into one. The enemies are quite many though that some may find it troublesome and irritating. But still I think all are important in introducing the grand enemy of the story.

but all in all it's still one of the greatest i've ever read (considering that I'm still quite new to reading chinese novels)

I'm looking forward for more updates and hopefully, they won't frustrate me too much due to cliffhangers. Lol <<less

I love transmigration novels but only if everything works well. The MC is too emotionless and OP, ML is too handsome every single chick will ALWAYS find some reason or another to blame the MC for them not being able to get his attention... srsly?

I've been reading thinking maybe the story would get better, but now it's just dull...

There is story, yet every other side character is not well developed or well thought out that it makes you lose interest. They seem to all only have a one track mind...

Ex:... more>> (spoilers, only read if u don't mind)

-Cant have ML? Np, kill the MC and the ML will love them for it.... (what? How is this reasonable?)

-Can't have the MC? Just kidnap her and make her stay by my side til she does... (???rly)

-A psycho b**** who transcends time and endlessly seeks revenge for reasons above. Pity you can't really kill her since she's so OP and can hop bodies apparently..

-A famous and prestigious academy every single person wants to attend has whatsoever no restriction on students freely killing each other... no staff at all to intervene! Prob like 3 teachers total mentioned.... lol

These happen too frequently that it lowers the quality of the overall story... <<less

I'm giving it two stars for the barely passable beginning of the story. There isn't much to like in here. The character development is way too abrupt all the time, the author gave no consideration to the feelings of the characters, it all just seems fake. The characters are always fueled by anger, jealousy and arrogance. The MC herself is way too arrogant, she doesn't care about the rules like most other MCs in transmigration novels do. She just does whatever she wants and the author has portrayed it like... more>> the world accepts it and frames the situation in a way that it would work out for the MC. The story just seems unnatural, and the story is full of gaping plot holes. In other transmigration novels, the stories flow with grace, but this one just goes right one moment and then left, the next. It doesn't flow smoothly at all, just too artificial. I don't know how some people are able to bear it. Even the characters' thoughts are said as dialogues. Who even writes like that? It's just written to make the reader know the situation on the spot, what's the fun in that? Even though the translation quality is good, the plot is fine, but the way the author has executed it is purely terrible. <<less

I don't really mind reading transmigration stories where the MC came from a terrible family, cunning sisters/stepsisters, sudden reverse harem because she was so oh-magnificently-celestial-being-descended-from-heaven. Not even mind when the ML is the most beautiful being in the world (then what is she, second most beautiful? Whatever) and had all unmaried maiden or for some special snowflakes, married, infatuated with him. What I mind is, if the cycle were used over and over and over again.

some girl saw him and fall in love with him and suddenly "why would tr*sh... more>> like her be with him?" and proceed to kill MC just because of jealousy. Once or twice is fine, but the arc is being recycle and dragged - it's always the same.

I don't know if there's some competition going on in the length of the book (chapters), but if you keep using the same premise over and over again, you're going to lose your readers.

where's the originality? Dang, I'm missing those. <<less

I really wanted to like this novel the premise sounded good the reviews weren't terrible and I was getting sick of all the male protagonists you find in wuxia, but I was disappointed. There is little focus on cultivation, there is little focus on her being alchemist just that she is superior one. Almost all of the problems in our main characters life is social, but of course she reveals her secret, her higher status, and those who offended her are punished or her fiance punishes them.

It's enough to pass time. But the story is totally cliché, the characters too, and at one point I just felt bored and annoyed reading it. Well, I can't say it's totally bad as I read 300 chapters so yes, you can enjoy it if you are looking for something standard.

This is one of the best female MC CN novels from the pool of tr*shy tropes that corrupt the genre. This one at the very least has a believablish relationship that isn't built on molestation, rape, or oppression of the female MC by the male MC is a thumbs up in my book. Honestly that makes this so much more bearable than the other ones, even though it still contains many of the same tropes. Since most Female MCs have to be in a relationship at least make it bearable... more>> like this one. <<less

So I've read the translator version. And seriously, without translator unique tantrum and comments, I definitely will NOT read the translate until now.

Some parts feels dragging alot. But MC boldness somehow can make me back from laziness. Just like how MC in latest chapter regret for flattering some old dean after knew there's no harm following her.

So thanks a lot for TL-nim and ptoofreader/editor to make the version really lively to read.
