Charlotte awakens one day to find that “she” is actually reincarnated soul of a man from Earth, and has to quickly become accustomed to her new environment as the sole daughter and last remaining member of a prestigious and wealthy Count family. Unfortunately for her, she ends up being the target of a sacrificial blood rite by the crazed Stewardess and the hundreds of zombified house servants, which results in her becoming reborn as the avatar of the progenitor of vampires, the True Blood. While getting used to her newfound powers, she has to navigate the political scene that comes with her station, all the while fending off the other nobles, the Church, and anyone who might come to suspect her new identity as a walking god.

The True Ancestor of Blood—Charlotte de Castell.

Accompanied by madness, born from blood, hand in hand with curses, walking alongside destruction.

An okay novel. While I think it's a good read, it's just not for me. The original novel description--and the first twenty chapters or so--makes it sound like you're reading about a reincarnated girl having to deal with her overpowered vampire abilities. Unfortunately (for me anyway), after that it just becomes a milquetoast political novel (with one chapter even being titled "Game of Thrones" to drive the point home about what the novel is). I ignore existing reviews and tags when picking something up, so I would've known that this... more>> is a politics novel if I just looked, but I prefer going in blind. But even as a politics novel, I felt this like was weak. Charlotte doesn't really do anything on her own, she just uses her vampire powers to woo people with misunderstandings and then is dragged around by the plot while others do the heavy lifting. It got boring to read.

Translation: The TL seems decent enough. Some grammar mistakes, as you'll commonly find in Chinese translations. The TL is inconsistent sometimes, but they leave a TL note when they decide to change something. But then they don't go back and change the previous translations to their new names, so it feels amateurish. <<less

Personally, I'm not usually into political novels with limited action, but this one is different—it's surprisingly good. Normally, political tension builds up, the protagonist solves their problem, and that's it. But this novel handles the lack of action really well. It's a bit slow for my taste, but that doesn't stop me from giving it a 5-star review.

The world-building is impressive, and the character interactions and political intricacies are excellently written. The translation is solid too. I've only read the first volume, but it shows great potential. It's from the... more>> same author as "The Game Of The World Tree", so that's a plus.

As a heads-up, it's quite slow-paced, so patience is needed. You might feel like dropping it around chapter 20, but I'd recommend sticking with it. Myssoferia's review covers a lot of points I agree with, so check out the top review for more insights.

Also here's the Power Ranking in the novel, I might forget it, so just in case...

Like author previous works, Game of the World Tree, the gender bender aspect is just a kind of gimmick for MC to have boyish mindset and not being attracted to men. There is no deep diving into the topic of gender since MC is too busy on managing her estate and trying to survive.

The story is quite interesting, as the Gods are the pinnacle existences and the true ruler of this world. Even though extraordinary power existed, the rules imposed by Gods maintain the peaceful society (in the surface). So although Charlotte was quite poweful, she still need to navigates through the murky political battle with her wits and natural acting talent. Her opponents isnt dumb either. Theyre master of scheme and Charlotte would occasionally caught off-guard by them. And even though there is rules imposed by Gods, that is only a written rule. Charlotte still need to use her individual strength to guard against evil from the dark. Theres good balance between brain and brawn in this story.

A good dynamic between pretentious master and fanatic servants. Added occasional comedic moment to ease the tense atmosphere help aleviate the serious mode that drain the brain power and emotion, make you able to enjoy it more casually. <<less

Goood.. So good.. Its really my cup of tea. The atmosphere, the act of our sneaky little princess, everything. I don't care about other things, everything already look good in my eyes. The prolog is good, and its really Synchronize with my imagination because I always like this kind of dark and eerie atmosphere, as if watching a beast awaken from its seal, little by little.. Much hope to the translator for not leaving it behind.

Very good to see other works from author Nomnom, has a smart MC and is not afraid to face problems even though she is not the best at making decisions. Throughout the story, we will be shown the character development of Charlotte and it goes hand in hand with the world building of Gospel of Blood. The genre of pretending to be a god will eventually become a real god like what Klein from Lotm did. Very interesting to watch in the future

I Really enjoy this novel, it has a great story and the characters are developed in a way that makes you feel emotional for them.

The story follows the MC, reincarnated as Charlotte de Castell some days before her birthday. Now how will he? Or rather She, will adapt to this new world with fantastical elements within.

The MC is a cunning one that uses people, but also one where she's very emotional to the people close to her. One where she doesn't care about lives but doesn't want to include the... more>> innocents. A pragmatic vampire who doesn't want to drink human blood.

The relationship she has with people is also one that's fleshed out with reason behind them that's great!

All in all, I think it's one of the nicest story I read that I thoroughly enjoyed. <<less

Normally I don't like novels that have a significant political fiction elements, no matter the additional genres. A lot of political fiction in my experience has the unfortunate effect of being emotionally draining without the payoff. Let me explain what I mean - in a lot of political fiction, there's usually a lot of tension in terms of fending off political opponents, implementing what needs to be done, etc., but the payoff usually is a bit less than I'd like. The payoff usually comes in the form of having been... more>> able to accomplish what the protagonist wanted to do... and then that's kind of about it.

This novel feels different to me. Although I've kind of just started, I'm excited. It has Korean FMC noble society novel vibes, in that the protagonist starts off in a VERY precarious position, where one false move is death, and every political gain she makes, whether it's in the managing of her territory, the revitalisation of her house, the defeat of political opponents etc., are all steps in preserving her life and giving her a stronger foothold in the world. This is also why I'm way more into female-lead political fiction than male-lead political fiction - in male-lead political fiction, it's usually about accomplishing. In female-lead political fiction, it's a lot more about survival and preservation, especially in these noble society settings. The payoff simply feels a lot better. This is also why I had a period of time where I binged a bunch of Korean FMC noble society novels, although a lot of the time those novels tend to predicated on a more romance-led direction, where she relies on her husband/fiancee a lot more.

But this is why this novel is so exciting to me. She's going to rely entirely on herself and her growth-type isekai buff to slowly win political battles, get stronger, and claim her place in the world. Plus the stakes are off the roof, she's REALLY weak in the beginning, and she has such a long way to go. Frankly, if you ask me this is what Chinese novels do a lot better than Japanese and Korean novels. In my experience, Chinese novels are much more willing to make their main characters "work for it". In Chinese it's called "吃的卷中卷,方为人上人". It means, if you want to be above the crowd, you have to work harder than anyone for it. There's of course no shortage of Chinese novels with overpowered MCs and such, but there's definitely more Chinese works that I've encountered that go from "weak to strong" rather than "strong to stronger" and "strong from the start" than KR and JP novels. <<less

I understand now why the summary doesn’t explain anything. The narration reveals information layer by layer. Try reading the first few chapters to see what I mean, it wouldn’t work if you already knew what the story is about.

This needs a review.

As for now this story is one of the best i've read in my last year.

Smart MC, rather well built characters that shows humanity (or rather, non-humanity), the plot and the premise are interesting and the atmosphere is generally really good.
the pace is perfect as its fast when needed and slow when needed.

An easy 5/5
