From chapter 1-50, I thoroughly enjoyed it. But not until the female lead suddenly became s*upid. Like why the heck did the author let the FL go and do that s*upid thing when the FL knows what's gonna happen? Like she can just inform the higher ups of her plan and not just go alone and do a massacre!!! Like- ugh! I was so disappointed that I didn't want to continoue reading anymore. Aishh!!!

I've read the raws. I think it's a cute story actually. I do admit that the beginning is a bit confusing. We had no idea how she died in her previous life, but personally, I didn't care enough, as long as she was entertaining enough in her current life.

An ex-assassin/killer travels and inhabits the body of a young, not-really-well taken care of type of girl. I guess that part is cliche. The non-cliche part is when her neighbour (a boy that's one year older) sneaks into her room to check... more>> if she's doing fine because of his mom's persistence. He ends up getting badly hurt (lmao) because our beloved ex-killer doesn't take too kindly on surprise attacks.

The main goal of our MC so far (in ch 44 of the eng translation) is to go back in time. She's willing to join the military and the gang to do so. I absolutely adore her disciple/neighbour who thinks he's her ge.


Turns out he'll be her hubby at the end. The ending is super sweet. The two get married and she proposes to him (lmao) as expected. There's some extra chapters about their kids and going to the amusement park.


I love the main couple's dynamic because it reminds me a lot of my parents. My mom's the real boss in the family lmao.

I wished there was more than one update a week, but I'm more than willing to wait. The translation's only got 27 more chapters to go anyway. <<less

It's pretty interesting actually. Aside from the fact the MC, yet again, transported to another world this brings us to how she will strugle in fitting in the modern world since she's a deadly (albeit sort of naive) assassin who, later in life, will serve in the elite military force. I just hope there's a bit of romance to liven up MC's cold heart (:

I pray and ask any interested translator who may want to pick up this c-novel as it seems amery edge won't be continuing this since the... more>> poll results, this was the first one to get eliminated. Please, please, somebody with a kind heart continue this????? <<less

Not the worst, not the best.

The MC is an assassin who has transmigrated into the modern world. Because of this sudden transmigration, the MC tries to find a way to go back to her own world, but in the meantime, decides to join a military/government division to put her assassin skills to use while also teaching a childhood friend (of the body the MC has transmigrated into), some flying dagger/martial arts tricks.

The first part about joining a military/government organization is understandable since the MC is an assassin and wants more... more>> info on how to time-travel back into her own world, so the only way to do so is to see if the government/military have any confidential info on time-traveling. But the second part about teaching her new body's childhood friend martial arts got me so confused. Like why would any one do that? The MC should be busy with school and her military/government missions, not be tangled up in some problematic delusional childhood sweetheart drama, especially since the ML (who is the childhood friend), is weirdly nosy and keeps on bothering the MC left and right. I think the characters in this novel were not properly fleshed out as their personalities have a lot to be questioned on, and there was also no character development. Even though the MC stayed in the modern world for a while, she did not really try to adapt/understand the modern world's way of thinking and the ML never really did grow up as his mindset seem to be stuck in a preadolescent/teenage way of thinking, never really thinking about the consequences of his actions.

Overall, I am kind of disappointed in this novel as I expected something more, but don't let this review stop you from reading this story. This novel was not my type of tea or coffee, but it may be yours. <<less

Up until now I would give this story 3 stars, but the reading experience is disgusting. It is almost unreadible, because you are thrown out of the story multiple times per chapter and my enjoyment of reading this hit rock bottom. Why?

A few chapters into this translation, after you got somehow hooked, the translator decided to put up 8, 9, 10 and more watermarks per chapter.

This destroys and influences my experience to enjoy this story, therefore I have to downgrade this to 1 star. I will never read a novel... more>> from zhanlantranslations again. <<less

Qin Ke Xuan, the top assassin of their organisation, transmigrated from a xianxia ancient china to the modern world. She transmigrated over to a weak willed young girl.

If it sounds generic, it really isn't.

It's an interesting take on this type of genre. MC might sound OP and she is in a way but she also isn't. The only OP ability she has is her xianxia assassin capabilities. Against modern invention and modern society... As a middle school student...

ML is a loyal ML. Waifu is law kind of ML. I appreciate... more>> how the ML grew and changed as a person (to accommodate waifu more lol jk)

Why 4 stars?


I hate her family, but at the same time I don't. I can't hate them fully to my heart's content in my main discontent because not everything is black and white.

I hate her crazed mom who ignored her and yet cooks for her.

Her dad, who even though tries to make up for neglecting her, still cheated and had a child with another. He was only driven by conscience.

The step mom who cooks and cares for her a little was still the person who broke their family. She also is quick to blame her.

As much as that grandfather offered her an olive branch, I also dislike him.

Sigh it's complicated.

Happy about the HE though

short novel so the plot r rush n kinda forced.

MC is an assassin that doesnt really have an assassin capability. she doesnt have calmness n judging ability. shes reckless, ignorant, n easily blown her own cover.

ML is as useless as he can be. a typical deadweight that drags down MC every single time. MC join 2nd rate local gang (so far only become thief n fight some local thugs) n he feel that its dangerous, report her to police n get her to join the military in world espionage (job... more>> description: damage, assassinate and kidnap, reconnaissance behind enemy lines, seize intelligence, work as anti-agents, engage in anti-raids and anti-hijacking and etcetera.) n thats not dangerous eh? I wanna cut off MLs head n see if he have brain inside... he start off as a pest around MC... <<less

Her behavior doesn't make any sense whatsoever, they took the cold personality to the extremes. For an assassin, it doesn't make sense for her to have 0 EQ. For assassins work is similar to spys, one mustn't stand out, and better yet know how to blend in fast, witch demand as high EQ as IQ. She goes around acting impudent, offending people by ignoring them for no reason, and not trying in the least to act like the original body owner, showing a 180 degree personality change.

It's pretty realistic; the MC transmigrates into the modern world and takes an extremely long time to get used to her new surroundings, unlike the other ones where they learn everything immediately. She doesn't try to fit in like the other MCs. Her "leave me the f alone" attitude is annoying though, like she doesn't realize she's another person with a whole different life from her past.

I'm probably gonna keep reading this but I couldn't handle it anymore and I don't have anywhere to vent. Yin Xu Dong is frustratingly annoying and st*pid, I even cried out of frustration. He's weak, why is he ruining everything? He's like the only guy, I fear he's going to be the ML, what an annoying guy. I don't care how much of a simp he is and how much he cares for her, he's annoying, very annoying. He should know his level and he should know that he is... more>> a hindrance, he pops up to "defend" her but just ends up dragging her down. But I'm bored and this is fairly entertaining. It is a very frustrating read though, her behavior is a bit frustrating too but whatever, she's the MC.

I might change my view on this guy as I keep on reading this and he gets his ML halo but until now I just find him extremely annoying, it's so weird how she just lets him be, it's contradictory to her personality. It's usually with the excuse of him being useful that she protects him but come on... when he's just dragging her down she should just not let him join her in. I wouldn't mind if she broke his legs so he stops following her, he's the typical side character that everyone wants to strangle, I wonder how he will end up as the ML, he just doesn't have that vibe.

I also had issues with her personality but it's not as strong as my negative feelings towards this ML. She's just arrogant and entitled, very annoying but I can accept it since she's a killer, I'm not expecting her to be likeable. Both are dumb though, him for always ruining her plans and her for letting him be and doing extremely dumb stuff that just lands her in trouble and her stubborn ass making it worse. I get she doesn't care about anything but come on? She's got a new identity, she wants to stay low yet she attacks everyone that approaches her. <<less

The MC is emotionless for the first half of the story and then she gets engaged to the ML, gets married, and has two kids in five chapters. The ending was very rushed but other than that I liked the story. The MC was constantly being underestimated and her face-slapping technique is nearing perfection.

This novel was a rollercoaster, really it had its loopholes to plots but I enjoyed the adventure.


However, the author decided to show the FL's reasons of why she died or why she was like this in the late chapters, which I had the patience for.


P.S you need patience for this novel xd

Hmm. I am a big fan of these transmigrating female MC boss fighters, especially from one of my favorites Mistaken Marriage: Military novel. However, the female MC is a bit too cold even by my standards. Plus the fact that she had to learn everything that happens without any previous memory is a little unrealistic. I am a fan of the ML, though I also feel quite bad for him and the fact that he rarely appears in the story. Would have liked having a little more context or background... more>> in the beginning to explain what exactly happened, though the flashback much later about how she died was quite illuminating. Do love the family dynamic lol, though the power differential is quite extreme. <<less

It's rather confusing at the start especially trying to remember all the Chinese names but, I really like this novel. The MC is uncaring to pretty much everyone around her but eventually she does open up to one person which is really cute. Also she's a badass.

It kinda just throws you into the story without any background or context on what happened. This is another story where an super assassin is transported to another body. It isn't anything special but I don't quite see why people are rating it a 1.
Pretty good so far

At the beginning, I'm a bit confussed about the plot when I read the first chapter. Then I get cleared up after reading the description. Well, turn out she time traveled from ancient times to modern era.

Her behaviours as an ancient person is natural and realistic. But thanks to her fast learning ability, she could master most of modern era tools in a short time. Honestly, I dislike MC at first because she's so bland, cold, and heartless but after learning her backstory, her nature becomes understandable.

... more>>

She was trained to be an assassin since she was a child. She trusted one person but that person betrayed her and killed her in the end (although he had her own reason for killing her).


But thankfully, after years spending her time surrounded by other people in modern era, she learns to be more sympathetic and sociable (although she still doesn't like to talk much).

There is not much interaction between her and ML in the first place. The story focuses more in her military training life and also her missions. But I'm still satisfied with her and ML's ending. <<less

The novel has a pretty nice setting though some characters were left behind and the family situation of the mc's original body and her life experience was never properly revealed

... more>>

The Main character is literally very blunt and cold (but slowly starts warming up to the male lead even if it was only near the end)

The male lead is a simple-minded person and was the childhood friend of the mc's original body.

The mc's background before transmigrating was only revealed at the end. And many characters like that doggo, so-called crush of the original, original's parents and biological mother were left behind.

It never mentioned about where the original owner of the body went and there were literally no suspicions about the sudden personality change.

Overall the novel was nice and the main plot was somewhat expected but I would not re_-ead this again.

It was a very nice read for a short story. Light-hearted and smooth ride throughout. I really loved the transmigration twist of someone from the ancient times transporting into modern society instead, it was refreshings. I really liked MC's attiude on getting sent into an unfamiliar world, just quietly observing and learning then slowly adjusting. I didn't really question much of her relationship to the original body's family cuz its pretty understandable to me. Nodody really bother to care with the original body so how could they even notice it... more>> wasn't the original her anymore. To be frank, her family sucked. Even after they were good to her out of guilt after MC did for the lil brother, they only felt her as an eyesore in the depths of their heart. Only the ML truly cared for her.

Anyways, the plot had a holes here and there but tbh I didn't really care, it was an enjoyable read for me. I do wish the ending could've been more elaborative (felt like it was a bit rushed) about her job and what came after their graduation, what she does now, etc. Even what happened to the ML or what he exactly does now. I really wanted to see them work together at least once, it would've been interesting tbh. BUT I guess the ending isn't bad either, at leadt she got to live her life happy and liberated from her past. <<less

This novel was very interesting to me since it was the first time I was reading about and MC that reincarnated from the past to the future. Usually the transmigration novels I've read are about reincarnation from the future to the past.

The plot was very simple and interesting without any misunderstanding that can potentially ruin relationships. I'm so tired of s*upid misunderstanding between the MC and ML and am so happy that this novel didn't have that shit.

... more>>

The only thing that made me mad while reading the novel was how after the MC kulled all the antigovernment guys, she was sentenced to death even though those guys would have been killed by the government either way. But in the end I was actually happy that that incident occurred since because of that the MC was able to live happily in the future.


The relationship between the MC and ML is so cute. Though they both have a lot of interactions in the novel their are only few romantic moments. Most of the novel revolves around the MCs life while she was a millitary soldier, a student in the millitary school and her missions. <<less

Short story to read passing the time. The author have potential to grow in the next story. Translation is good especially some detail explainatin of some idioms.

The story line is nothing good nor bad. The characters' develoment is none. Several plot conflicts exist as the author is not deligent enough to study some basic hard facts. MC is a seasoned killer. But all her moves after transmigrated show her inability to adapt to the surrounding socials and circumstances. Her thought is very, very easily provoked and exposed. She's very far... more>> away from "being cool and heartless".

Just reading for pleasure, ok? It's very short novellette anyway. <<less
