I read another's mention of political intrigue and that got me interested. And it delivered, because the political intrigue is not spelled out for you in an effort to make a character super intelligent like other stores, but leaves you wondering who, why and how for a long time. It also has a good martial part, the chapter were MC and 3 of her friends infiltrated the enemy got me at the edge of my seat.

So all in all, if you like martial and political intrigue stories, this one is... more>> for you. The fact that this is yuri is just a plus.

The only thing I disliked is the end as it seemed rushed and author forgot of all the other interesting characters they had developed through the story along MC and FL.
Spoiler

In a way it made me remember Hunger Games movie trilogy, all the good from the beginning and middle, for such a lackluster ending. It is a good happy ending, but it made sad thinking of how better it could have been if not that rushed for closure after the romance was "completed".

Me @ Lin Wanyue: call me old fashioned, but I was raised to serve my WIFE. Clean up after her, take care of her. I cook her food every night. Her needs come FIRST. I do whatever she says, because she is my WIFE and she makes the rules around the house. She owns me.
if she ever cheats, it's because I was lacking & that's on ME.

Lesbian Mulan x Scheming Princess, lots of fluff (and angst)

One of my absolute favourite novels. Very long with lots of political intrigue... more>> and scheming - I am a huge fan of intelligent and well-written female characters and this book is full of them. Authentic wlw romance, the author notes are hilarious and really relatable. Author is a lesbian!! Which is why the relationship development is so authentic and realistic, extremely sweet. Main couple isn't the only wlw romance! Side characters also deserve love - everything flowed so naturally and didn't seem forced at all. Very unusual for novels with queer themes. "Even if some people can't understand, it doesn't matter, love women, it's just loving women, I simply love women, women have never been a replacement for lacking men, women are women, I am a woman, I love women." - author <<less

This is very great yuri novel that hooked you up. I find this novel very interesting. It's about MC who join army and become soldier to revenge on enemy country who destroyed MC family and villages.

This novel is getting better, we got cold and strong female protagonist. Looking forward general MC meet princess and how their love blossoms.

Great novel!! Don't let the yuri put you off, this novel has extremely well written characters and plot. If you're looking for fan-service, then this is NOT the novel for you but if you're looking for a well-written action/adventure/romance story that will make you laugh, cry and be attached to the characters, then this is the novel for you. I highly recommend it. It's really different from other romance novels whether be it boyxgirl or boyxboy or girlxgirl or whatever.

(KINDA SPOILER) :

Note: The romance in this story develops at... more>> a rather slow pace but it is not absent. In fact, I like the pace, it's very realistic for an orphan who wants revenge on the enemies who killed her family and a princess who lost her mother and needs to scheme to protect her only brother. <<less

Best. Read. Ever. (For me, that is)

Human has flaws. Hence, these characteristics also had it. I like how the romance slowly get cultivated here, yes, there's lot of things and trials they had to face, but, overall it was good!

The translation was greated (even the one not edited for grammar proof!).

... more>> I can't described well of my thought for this one, but, those that into Chinese medieval era + yuri-ness, then give this one a shot!

I just binge read this in one go (even though I was supposed to study since I'm in the middle of taking my exam papers!).

That's how much fun and enjoyable read, this is. XD

Cheers! <<less

I like this surprisingly. I thought it would just be a weird and random mess of a story. But I was pleasantly surprised.

Unlike most Chinese stories, It's actually more of a slow burn pace instead of the really fast type of pacing I see in most Chinese stories. We are just now having the Princess meet the MC and it's chapter 16.

Some parts of it I find confusing and hard to follow along. Mostly when it's talking about the royalty side of the story. It being Chinese I also have... more>> issues keeping track of characters names.

It's really a fun story and I hope it can get more attention. <<less

story : 4.5/5

characters : 4/5

world building : 4/5

... more>> writing style : 5/5

(translation : 4/5 remember to read melts' translation from the beginning, I'm thankful for the first translator but it wasn't nearly as well translated x'))

haa~~ I hate and love this author, hate and love this story... The story has been planned from even before the beginning, only the little details were left for later. This is why this story has a clear setting phase - development phase - explanation&conclusion phase. It has a pretty good writing style, the descriptions were just enough to get us immersed, the transition aren't bad, the foreshadowing were really good. I love the author and this story for all those planned out plot that turn interesting and the completion at the end for each character.

For the story, a 14 years old girl living in a poor village lost her whole village one day, including her parents and twin brother to the neighboring "country" full of multiple huns tribes. After burying and cremating the villagers, she takes her brother's name and enlisted in the army for revenge.

Some people says that she shouldn't have been able to fall for the princess, but I think that without choice, her life has been painted entirely white to survive, needing to forget everything a normal girl should be. Some others hate the princess for making our orphan girl hurt this much but for the princess too, she had to be painted black to survive in her circumstances... The author made a great job to breathe life-like character from different backgrounds. You could see the characters adding their color to the other little by little.

the first part of the story made me interested, waiting to read when their relationship would start and how wanyue climb up as a strong character. The middle part was really full of angst, that's the part that makes people hate the princess, but like I said, for me, she didn't have a choice either. The third and last part of the story were amazing, when the explanations for everything comes to light little by little, it was as amazing as the deduction of the detective when he found the truth of the crime.

I hate this author for the lack of fan-service but that also make this story a solid one rather than a slice of life webnovel that's written by the day and the foreshadowing is for 2 later chapters... You'll remember 2-3 word to describe that kind of webnovel but when you think about one like this yuri story, you'll want to re-read it because it left an impression.

I can also understand why the readers couldn't take the ending of the main story at that time, you can't just end your story at that point... x'D
Spoiler

then the author brought the extra and I really thought it was a sweet dessert after a heavy meal but she (the author) didn't forget her style and fill up a mug of bitter coffee... it's a happy end, happily ever after, yes,... but I'm still feeling it's not entirely a happy ending.. dang it...

[collapse]

The translation (melts' one, I'm thankful for unsure translation, but many things were left out and the grammar/meaning wasn't on point) was really good, not perfect, but you can feel the translators effort. The annoying thing were the pingying about the princes' names... so confusing.

Lastly, if you're intending on starting this novel, try to not read the author's notes at the end of the chapters, she has a tendency to spoil her own readers... this story has a good development and many foreshadowing, just read at least once without reading comments from either reader and author. At the end, you may feel like re-reading this later because, even if there's a lot of angst, it was really a good plot with plot twist and great foreshadowing.

Spoiler

The only one that made me stop thinking 10 sec was the first prince ending, seriously, didn't saw that coming, but then that explains his action during that hunt

[collapse]

tldr: a good story well-written, a lot of angst, characters are not 2D and has good developments, not fluffy, totally recommended. Please, give this a chance and read till the last 40 chapters, don't miss this :)

4.5/5 <<less

This is great best GL story that make you crying and smile. It's pleasing, satisfying and intriguing novel. Honestly I wasn't into action, war strategic, but this novel change my mind. It's was amazingly well written novel that make you craving for more chapters. Every characters has their own excellent background.

It's story about the Loyal and determined General who pledge to protect country from harm/enemy And ambitious Princess who scheming to protect her brother from harm. Their relationship is realistic, like how they cultivate their feeling slowly. There were lot... more>> of drama, connected, emotionally, devotedly.

My favorite character is general😍, she is wife material😘. I love her so much. I love her character growth, I can't help but envy princess who got love, attention of General. I wish I were princess. It was great read novel. I recommend you guys to read this novel. <<less

The author set some realistic goals for her characters that make it easy for readers to not like the pairing.

The setting is:

• A female who enlists as a male in military service, who ends up falling in love with a princess. She gives the princess a lot of leeway due to guilt of being a woman who loves a woman and deceiving her.

• The princess loves... more>>

, but recognizes that one day she will have to marry for the kingdom. This general who was "injured in an unmentionable place" in battle is someone she can safely befriend and comes to respect. She doesn't feel guilt about scheming around this general until the eventual discovery of true gender.

What I like best about this story is that the love is a slow burn and the main drama has the parties involved learning to come to grips with the other person's deceit. It's a realistic type of drama that didn't make me want to flip a table. I also didn't hate the battle sequences. It's not a historical masterpiece, but it is not meant to be. Despite this, it manages to give the feeling of one. <<less

Hello, hello, so from the beginning, I enjoyed this novel very much, it's true some parts were hard to understand or better said, why would the characters do what they do. But after reading it a second time. I understand the ambitiouns and why they chose the way they did things. For me the stories was good and exciting. At the end I did cry and can only recommend this story.

Good novel although I didn't like the pairing between the two of them. The princess I'll be totally honest didn't deserve the MC (female general) at all. She gives off the air of a prick pretending to be kind but that's ok because she's doing it for her brother. Personally, I believe the love story between both of them was incredibly forced and more unnatural than not. For about more than half the story the princess doesn't even view MC as a love interest. I'll be giving it 4 stars... more>> just on the basis of a mediocre if poorly developed story but good development of the MC. <<less

I tend to make my judgment on stories without reading any extras, so if you want a complete review this one is not it. Tl;dr: decent novel, that could've been fantastic, hampered by a bad (maybe rushed?) ending (not as in a bad ending for the characters) and a lack of development for any characters outside of the two leads. Worth a read for anyone who enjoys scheming and plotting without everything spelled out for the reader!

First of all, the story is extremely well written and clearly planned out from... more>> the start with an overarching plot line and story for the main cast of characters (The MC and FL, as well as some of the others around the MC like Yun). I could definitely see myself returning to this story to re-read it to then get all the behind-the-scenes activities that were going on as the story progressed. I'd also like to tip a hat to both of the translator, who did an absolutely fantastic job and it flows extremely well.

If you enjoy a story that doesn't spell out everything for the reader in the heat of the moment, this is definitely a plus. On the other hand though, if you prefer the author to be a bit more upfront about what is going on, what people except the MC and, sometimes, the FL are thinking, this isn't for you.

Secondly, the characters are well thought out and have depth to them and aren't just there to fill out a "role" or "archetype". The MC goes through a very intriguing arc from being this blood-lusting warrior that only wants to dish out punishment equivalent to her own losses, to this mature and wise leader and it all feels natural and it isn't a case of her jumping from one extreme to the other without effort. Similarly, the FL has an arc too, not as well developed I'd argue, but still very well done. Her arc is almost the reverse, from being this cold, emotionless schemer who cares for no one. When she later starts to realize her own feelings, it hits all the harder when she despairs because of the MC.

These two parts are most definitely the highlights of the story. If you want well-built and well-written battle scenes that are logical and realistic (keep in mind this is not a novel with Qi or other types of enhancements) then you've come to the wrong place. First of all, there are relatively few of them consider the length of the novel, and they are fairly short too. But they are done well enough that I personally didn't mind, despite some of the "tactics" being described awkwardly I got the general gist of what was going on.

It'll be hard to not touch on the romance too. I definitely got it, from the MC's points of view. The FL expands and opens up her world and manages to pull her up from the darkness that she has faced for three years. I get it, she definitely loves the FL and I see why. The other way around though, I am dubious about. Earlier I mentioned how the FL has an arc, well part of it does revolve around her realizing her own feelings for the MC. And I just don't see where it comes from. It seems more like care for a friend, maybe even a sibling, but never did I ever get the sense that it was romantic love for Li Xian (FL). That is the main reason why her arc never felt complete to me.

Additionally, towards the end of the novel

Spoiler

the MC learns that she has been used for years by the FL. I mean she knew that already, having seen the silk reports (that we still got no resolution as to where they came from, since Xiao-Ci burned them, but whatever). But she then learns how she cruelly would allow the soldiers she has fought with for years to starve to craft up a scheme with a Hun chief by stealing their supplies, cruelly murdered 20 of the same soldiers to then go on a charade with the MC, etc. All of this, Li Xian doesn't even dare tell to her face, acting like a teenager breaking up through a text message.

So naturally MC is pissed. And remains pissed. For almost three years. Not seeing her for a moment. And again the "romance" becomes a problem in my mind when she then after three years finally returns, still in love with Li Xian.

[collapse]

It's basically Stockholm Syndrome as far as I can tell. Or something related to it. The romance, in a romance novel, is easily the weakest part of the story.

Another huge issue with the story is to do with characters, and character development. But wait, earlier I mentioned that it was good, right? Well yes, for the two main leads. But any side character seems to be left in the wayside. Maybe this is handled a bit better in the extras, but for me that doesn't really redeem that fact. There's plenty of side characters that are just not handled well. The most obvious examples are the two other army buddies of the MC, who are so neglected in the second half of the story that I've actually forgotten their names despite how prevalent they were in the first half. There's the named shadow guards of the princess, especially Yu Xian, Xiao-Shiyi who are upstaged by just a few moments with the late-comer Youqin. There's the named Huns, particularly Mansha. There are the brothers who are fighting for power and the throne, particularly egregious is the lack of development for Qi and Xiang who seem to be the biggest threats, in addition to the rebel Chu

Spoiler

In particular the dynamic between Qi and Chu seemed very strange to me. Qi suddenly revealing that he is in love with Chu and isn't their blood-related brother came out of nowhere, and goes nowhere, and isn't explained either. Very odd.

[collapse]

I get that developing all of these would lengthen the novel dramatically, but I'd argue not as much as people think. A lot of the story is seen from multiple angles, particularly through the silk reports we see Li Xian reading from time to time basically retelling what we've already read before in a summarized manner. There's also the repeating sets of history book texts that pop up every now and then explaining a bit more how the future world views these events, etc.

But the oddest turn of events is one I have to make use of spoiler tags for, and warning it does spoil part of the ending (pre-extras) so readers beware.

Spoiler

Wtf was with leaving the person they both consider to be their DAUGHTER behind as they elope after faking the MC's death?! What the hell was with not caring one bit about the common people despite a few chapters earlier considering the idea of retiring early AFTER a worthy successor has been groomed? That just came out of nowhere and seemed COMPLETELY out of character for BOTH of them.

Another minor pet peeve of mine is that in this ancient setting, no one seems to mind gay relationships. Or how prevalent they are. There's at least three in the story: The main leads, the two shadow guards, the miracle doctor who has the hots for Li Xian (and I think they are hinting at the fact that she might've been getting busy with the Empress before she passed? Or did I misunderstand that part completely and she just fancied the Empress and that sorta transferred to her spitting image, Li Xian?), and finally Qi who has the hots for Chu. But I can look past that, as I am used to most GL and BL to have a very high % of gay or bi-sexual people in them even though it does kinda take me out of the story.

[collapse]

It's a great novel, that sadly is ruined somewhat by what seems like a rushed ending or an author out of ideas for how to expand their original plot line. I'd definitely recommend it strongly to anyone who enjoys a story that deals with nefarious scheming, in addition to a light bit of fluff if you can look past the fairly poorly executed romance and the fact that Li Xian does not in any way deserve the MC's love as far as I'm concerned. <<less

This is great historical drama, it's slow burn romance develop, well written character develop. Author write MC character very well, I also like side character POV, there were lot of emotional drama in both main pairs and side character pairs.

I love how much MC love princess FL, she is devoted and loyal to her. When She die first, She went to the netherworld, she refused to reincarnate because she is waiting for Fl. FL also went to the netherworld 10 years later and also refused to reincarnate because she knows... more>> MC is waiting for her. MC and FL lived through the past 9 lifetimes with each other. They were suffered and punished past 9 lifetimes because of same s*x and their love for each other,
"Those two had struggled for nine cycles, yet they still refused to let go of each other."

As for story plot, it's well written, great read for me. The way both general and princess did realistic, MC whose family killed, she cherish life very much, She wanted protected her soldiers, friend and everyone, While FL who live in harm royal palace, she use everyone and doesn't cherish life, As a princess, she became to cruel, scheming and cold-blooded to protect herself and her brother from harm. She did bad deed to make her brother king as her empress mother wish. I actually crying reading this novel, There were so much emotionally, devoted, unconditional love. FL change herself for MC, she promise to MC that she will never killed any innocent person. This is my favorite novel. Heavy recommend this great GL novel. <<less
