I'm rereading the story, and just for kicks, I read the reviews. Shock! I think the summary fooled people into thinking this was a historical romantic comedy along the lines of snarky cat and mouse play that ends with true love. If you, like me, pick it up again after forgetting the summary, you would be totally immersed in a world of light intrigue, revenge, and human relationships in a historical setting.

By "light", I mean that, in comparison to other historical intrigue stories,... more>> the focus seems to be more on the relationship between the MC's and they just happen to have other, heavy stuff going on. (As contrast, MGQ has a woman tossed about by circumstance, culture, and her own traitorous heart, damn that fleshy beating beast. If that MC is barely managing to tread water, these MC's are standing in the shallow end with time to splash each other mischievously.)

Strangely enough, one of the things I like the most about it is that the female MC is a strong minded girl hiding culturally inappropriate behavior without the need for the rebirth/reincarnation crutch. The love story is sweet with elements of kindergarten style flirting. The partnership is sassy. The intrigue is just adult enough to make things interesting without making things too heavy for a fun read. Keeping in mind that old politics are dirty, things get dark-ish, and the emperor is petty (but what kind of emperor have we not seen?), I probably wouldn't read this as a bedtime story to children, but it's only a deal breaker if you were shopping for a different genre entirely. <<less

I enjoyed this through and through. There were ups and downs, but I couldn't put it down till it ended. The translation was really well done and the story was engaging without being overly complicated.

It starts off a lot more light-hearted and comedic as we read about the dynamics between Yan Shi Ning and Pei Jin. Their relationship was well thought out and their chemistry is great. You could see how much Pei Jin loves her and how she really starts to reciprocate his feelings. Those two have such a... more>> sharp mind and when they both put their mind into it, the become like the perfect couple!


When they teased Bei Dou non-stop, especially before he got married and during his wedding night! That was comedy gold!


The second half does seem to go more to the dark side, but I think it's an acceptable shift in tone as this is the Royal family that we are talking about. You don't survive the Imperial Palace being nice and gullible. While some consider the revenge plot to be shoe-horned in or random, I think it was well-placed.


I mean, imagine figuring out that your dad treated you like sh*t for another woman and her daughter and then finding out that that woman killed your mother. I mean, anybody would want revenge! The dad wasn't as horrible, but he was an idiot so while our female MC dislikes him, it's not like she wants him dead either.

One of the point of this arc was to show that even when Yan Shi Ning found out and planned the whole revenge, she didn't truly delight in their demise, she still has heart and even felt bad for her sister Yan Shi Ting who got played real hard.


If anything, the one plot point that I felt the author just put in there for sh*ts and giggles was

why the emperor hated Pei Jin. In the beginning, it was said that the Emperor merely didn't think much of him, then we find out that he hated him..? Cause of his mother...? Cause he was a control freak..? I think it would've been better if they didn't add that at all.


Overall, I enjoyed it thoroughly and would definitely recommend this to anyone! It's a good story, has good comedy, some drama and it's also complete! <<less

I actually thought that this was a very cohesive narrative. It was what it was from beginning to end; a rare kind of steadiness that was probably helped by the length (rather, the lack thereof). It was just a little boring...? Well, many things happen and many tragedies are perpetuated but I found it difficult to connect with the characters emotionally. TBH I think the core of the story is not the romance but rather the lesson "revenge begets more revenge" and "violence begets more violence."

... more>>

Basically, ML and MC just wanna live a carefree life eating food and playing around but nobody will let them. And so they have to continue responding to schemes until literally everyone is dead. Also it definitely felt like a bad end for poor Thirteenth Prince since he gets stuck in the palace as Emperor as all his loved ones have to move away from the capital because "a mountain can't house two tigers."

Rating: 4 rounded off to 5 because of the low rating and due to the ending being quite satisfying and even had the cute side story

Been reading some reviews and sure this story has some mature content and graphic/gore details but maybe since I've been reading quite a handful of other stories that centres about revenge, I wasn't deterred when it turned dark. I think this isn't even that heavy or full of angst.

To warn future readers though, if you've read To Be A Virtous Wife, Chu Wang Fei... more>> etc, you might not like this as much but if you are just looking to pass your time, come try this out. It's not frustrating and 80 chapters is just about right. If you found that it's not to your liking, you did not waste too much of your time. And if it's not so bad or if you liked it, since it's completely translated you can immediately find out the fate of the characters. <<less
