Imperial Favour


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

In the capital city, the eldest daughter of the Tang family’s main bloodline, Tang Zhuo Zhuo, lavishly married into the Eastern Palace. Yet, she chose to spend her remaining years within the broken walls of the Cold Palace’s courtyard.

Till her death, she never forgot the general who always resided in her heart.

But only after her death did she know that the cold-hearted emperor, who was thought to harbour hatred towards her, had watched the candle flame of his wife every night from above the Cold Palace’s courtyard walls.

Whilst the general had married the girl of his dreams from the start.

Who would have imagined that the scene that greeted her when she opened her eyes again was the event that happened when she first entered the Eastern Palace – where she grimaced in displeasure towards the future Chong Jian Emperor.

The male’s face whitened with fury.

Tang Zhuo Zhuo flinched, ‘I…I’m done for!’

Huo Qiu had an uncanny feeling. His wife, who had rejected him so severely before, seemingly changed into a new person. Not only did she not create any disturbances, but also made him some pastries.

In the face of the sudden goodwill expressed by his beloved, the future wise, divine and mighty Chong Jiang Emperor frowned, but naturally accepted everything.

This was really really mediocre.

Normally, I'm quite forgiving towards these types of stories even when they're super cliche but this was just so frustrating to read in some parts.

The MC is so unlikable. Even after living a whole previous life, I feel like she learns nothing. Despite knowing that the emperor has always cared about her, the way she expresses her affection towards him is so awkward. She gets petty and jealous all the time for no good reason and she acts spoiled to a s*upid degree. I'm okay with... more>> FLs not knowing how to interact with their spouses at first and then gradually warming up to them or lowkey always being indifferent at heart (like in Eight Treasures Trousseau or other works by that author) but this MC is just hot and cold with the ML. She hides a lot from him that she really doesn't need to and creates problems between them.

For example, she doesn't like seeing the ML with other women but from time to time she'll push him towards other women because she thinks that's what she should do. I felt bad for her initially because women in those times did have to deal with their husbands having multiple wives but the ML has repeatedly told her he doesn't want anyone else and that it hurts him when she does so because he's only loyal to her.


The s*upidest part was when she tried to get him to sleep with other women to bear an heir because she becomes infertile. He refuses because he loves her so the empress dowager gives her a hard time. At first I was sympathetic because I imagined it would've been hard to be a childless queen in those times but then we find our that this girl could've cured herself this whole time!!! She had medicine to cure herself!!! So what was the point of doing all of that? To test the emperor? This guy has BEEN telling/showing you that you're the only one he wants!!! STOP PLAYING AROUND!


The author also tried to make her a genius doctor by explaining that she's the secret apprentice of some famous doctor but she died of an illness in her last life? Why didn't this genius doctor thing help her then? Why is it only helpful now? I feel like the author just didn't know how to write this character so she threw a bunch of random traits together which is why her personality and attitude is all over the place. I even started disliking the ML for liking such a temperamental and s*upid woman.

Tbf there were some sweet moments in here when the MC wasn't being senseless but the story's just not worth reading imo. The fluff doesn't outweigh the irrationality. <<less

Mtl this novel until the end and I loveeee it. The novel is light and fluff. It doesn't have a lot of drama and doesn't have any heavy scheme, which is why love this novel. Also, I love both MCs, the FL and ML. The FL and the ML interactions are so interesting and full of fluff. I write something here because I think this novel doesn't deserve 1 star, it deserves more than that. How can you judge a novel by one chapter only and give it 1 rating.... more>> Very infuriating 😠 <<less

The FL is really irritating. Idk where she got the guts to act all jealous and play with the ML's feelings after everything she has done in the past life. Like gurl you honestly don't have the right. You were the one who confused his identity with another and you were the one that's in the wrong. You know how much the ML loves you but you still continue to do s*upid things just to test him out. What's even the use of your past life.

The FL seriously is just... more>> a beauty with doctor skills which I think the author only added to make her likable. Aside from that, she's just a lazy, incompetent empress and wife. I've been reading the mtl version so some parts may seem a bit hazy but even so, her attitude really turns me off. The ML is blind to have love her which btw, there's not really much justification for me on why the ML even loves the FL.

Anyway, I give this a 3 star because the story actually has a potential but the FL ruined it. She was just not it for me <<less

Like the story and kinda enjoyed it but it is just okay. Nothing amazing about it.

The story went in a different way than I thought, and it makes me kinda disappointed. Some parts of the story were just there and doesn't really add up to the story. And some plot were just forgotten.

... more>>

I really thought when the sixth prince went and declared himself king (at a fief I think) there will be some conflict and some kind of rebellion brewing. You know more actions. But he was never mentioned again until suddenly the ML already captured him. I was like ???? Thats it? That what happens him? The man who poison the ML with gu and give him some kind of plague.


Not a fan of the MC much. Her actions are kinda awkward sometimes and I dont really get her. I especially don't get her interaction with ML, it lacks something to me. However I enjoyed reading the ML doting on the MC. He is the highlights of this story. To me that is my fav part of this story and why I give it a solid 3. <<less

3* because it's actually has potential to be a good story. Unfortunately the author didn't seem very good at developing plot, new plots kept on being added while the old plots either being forgotten or being rushed-ly solved.

Such as:

1.... more>>

The 6th prince and his ties with southern kingdom (the kingdom with gu expert) I thought there're going to be some war but no, nothing happened, he just run away and proclaimed himself as a king.



Who healed FL's white moonlight, General Wang? FL's teacher was the main suspect but until the end, he never betrayed FL, so who did it?



Where did FL's senior sister go? Also what caused her death in the past life? And why did ML's strategist betray him?



Where did ML's past life concubine which he recruited after she saved him from the plague? She was mentioned of being the rival of ML's other favoured concubine....



Someone held a grudge against FL for getting rid of ML's gu (thus killing the mother gu's host), they have sent assassins to kill FL, but who is that person?


Perhaps one or more of my questions above have been answered in the novel, but that just proved how rushed the story is, that I could even missed those answers. <<less

So I really wish the translator hadn't dropped this. I liked the premise a lot, the misunderstandings between the FL and ML lead made sense and I enjoyed the do-over aspect where the truth is revealed through dreams. It reminded me of Pampered Consort's Acting Awards, or maybe Grand Princess albeit not as epic or amazing as those two lovely works. edit: Reread this a second time using google translate and I found myself enjoying it a lot more on the second read-through. It is like a romance novel come... more>> to life. So much bridal carrying, fainting, nursing, doting etc. Raising my initial 3 star rating to a 5 which I almost never do. <<less

This novel is pretty light-hearted. The ML is faithful to his love to MC till the end. I don't blame the behavior of our MC because she was truly forced into this marriage by the ML. Even though he knew she was reluctant to their marriage. In fact, both are quite loyal to their feelings. MC started to cultivate feelings for ML in her rebirth, and considering that she is not a transmigrator, her mindset of magnanimity in her position as Empress is understandable. Really admirable the depth of the... more>> ML's love towards the MC which simply wins over her mindset, and other people's objections.

Don't expect great political plots, neither intriguing schemes from the MC, nor palace fights overwhelming MC... because you won't find it in this novel. This story revolves around light romance. So good luck if your are looking for an undefeated MC with a lovely ending. <<less

I enjoyed this novel. The rebirth in this novel is a redemption story not a revenge one which I find refreshing. I love how the romance between both leads is artificially rocky but always very sweet. The male lead spoils his female lead so much I am envious lol. If the female lead was malicious she would have cause the male lead to ruin his country for her.

The story is somewhat light but entertaining.

I enjoyed this a lot. I have read a lot (a lot) of rebirth stories- this one is not about the female lead's revenge, for a change, but about her desire to live well with her husband the second time around, even if he will become the Emperor. It doesn't fufill all of its plotlines, and some of the things that are set up as major issues are magically handwaved away when it comes to the crunch but it was very readable even in MTL and I could see myself... more>> reading it again <<less

It was a good start. Somehow, the FL was a bit s*upid compared to other historical female leads on this list.

It was a rebirth, I gave it to her when it comes to emotions, adjustments and all.

She somehow flip from being jealous to no love to ML then fel in love finally.

... more>> She always get hurt every flip of the page. Her being knowledgeable in medicine failed to notice she was pregnant or that she had to take care more of her womb or so.

As an empress, harem is something to be expected. The ML even promised her that he won't have other women. She somehow asked the ML to avoid harem then after 2 steps, sending one to him, oh yeah after the horse falling incident.

I have the impulse to drop as the momentum or the story is getting draggy.

Something is lacking or so.

Will try my best to finish, who knows, maybe it'll get better.

Done reading. Good ending with twins.

I like this story so much. The FL is getting slowly to reciprocate the ML's feelings after regression. It's quite lovely to see their interactions each days. Besides, the ML is quite tsundere with his demeanor in front of FL despite his innermost thoughts. I enjoy this story so much but sadly the translation ended by chapter 18.

I do hope someone will continue translating this great story!

But thanks to someone that had been mtled this then I can read it to the end. ^^
