Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Qin Nuo transmigrated into the Great Zhou dynasty, becoming the dim-witted Ninth Prince. As if it’s not enough to be a female transmigrating into a male, (s)he thought that (s)he could just enjoy a life of drinking, eating, and being merry–but no. He ended up being pushed to do something way beyond his abilities and entered the fight for the throne. Internally there is strife among brothers, and a powerful official with great authority; externally there are foreign powers looking to invade, and the discontent of the people that is boiling over. How is he supposed to pave a path through this mess both domestically and abroad? It’s hard to be emperor, and even harder to be a good emperor! This is a story about an emperor farming. While others are farming a field, he’s farming a whole imperial court.

a Beautiful story about en emperor. Sometimes it's touching, sometimes anger-inducing and sometimes it leaves you anxious to death.

Not at all plain, a slow world building. The characters are all full and complex.

There are plausible causes and effects all through the story, never the same, never boring.

... more>> Don't expect much on the romance side. The female MC that becomes a full man will naturally understand women a bit too much and as an enlightened emperor with a need for heirs he won't go around chasing men.

Downside, either I didn't get the google-translation right or the ending seems a bit too rushed. I saw here in NU that there are some extra chapters, maybe those will satisfy my needs, who knows <<less

What I like about this novel is that the FL is patient and smart, she's not like other transmigrators who go out all guns blazing n stuff. I like her cool-headed character.

She's smart, she uses knowledge from her previous life, like making soap and wine to make money, she knows business, she also knows this buddhist martial arts, but so far martial arts isn't a key focus of the novel. She mets this princess and agrees to marry her. And I think she forgot that she is in fact not a man. And gurl do you know you would be trapping her in this marriage with you, a female!? She doesn't even tell her shes a woman, and the princess does hold a kind of affection for her. I almost thought this was gonna turn into a yuri novel. I almost thought the heroine was in fact a man! I had to go back and double check lol. Princess is kinda a fallen women cuz she was like married before or engaged or something and everyone blames her for her fiancees massacre. She and our heroine are very close.

Besides that our heroine does end up winning the throne!


What I don't like is that the pacing is kinda slow. At 70 chapters, she is still pretending to be a man, the chapters are long btw. Its about political intrigue, and the fight for the throne. Romance is not coming to the fore yet, but I can kinda see who the ML is. Shes kinda naive too but also very benevolent. Shes not the violent type.

I don't know why the story got bad ratings. There's one chapter so far, but it seems pretty good. No huge errors that I can see, and an interesting plot.

Based on the premise this first chapter shows, I would definitely recommend this. Once I've read more, I'll edit this to show my thoughts about later chapters.
