Marriage of the Di Daughter


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

The young lady from the Xue family was talented and beautiful, and married the dream husband at the age of 16. They had a loving and harmonious relationship and were together for 3 years when her husband attained the title of Imperial Scholar.

Now that he had attained glory and honor, he was dissatisfied with his commoner wife. He craved power and wealth; in his quest to become prince consort, he regarded her as an obstacle to marrying the princess and was willing to murder both his wife and children.

The arrogant and willful princess stood before her and ridiculed her: “So what if you are exceptionally beautiful and have unparalleled talents? After all, you are only a small official’s daughter, for this princess to crush you – is just as simple as crushing an ant to death!”

Her reputation was smeared, she committed suicide by hanging, her brother was murdered while seeking justice for her, and her old father fell ill from the chain of grievous news and passed away.

During the 42nd year of Hong Xiao’s reign, Yanjing’s no. 1 beauty, Xue Fang Fei, passed away. She reincarnated into the body of the Grand Secretariat’s daughter, Jiang Li, who drowned and was granted new life!

She got into a prominent family and engaged in dirty, underhanded dealings non-stop. She came across all sorts of bad characters, be they monsters or freaks, she dealt with them accordingly. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

Once she was soft-hearted, but now she has become heartless! Jiang Li swore never to be an insignificant character again, and never to allow anyone to trample over herself again. This lifetime, she would seek justice by having her revenge and resolving this blood feud!

He is Northern Yan’s youngest duke, he is unrestrained and beautiful, he is capricious, and he collects the world’s strangest flowers.

Everyone said that the Grand Secretariat’s second daughter is spirited and lovely, pure and kind, and that she is likened to a white lotus.

He is clad in beautiful, red clothes, and retorted with a smile, “A white lotus? She is clearly a man-eating flower that eats people without spitting out bones!”

Jiang Li: “Duke, careful you don’t break your hand.”

Ji Heng: “Such a ferocious man-eating flower, of course I’m going to snatch it home to safeguard.”

An unrestrained hunk vs a daughter from an aristocratic family. The pair of wolves in sheep’s clothing join hands to tyrannize the world.

the story of MC and her family was really touching and made me shed tears. However the romance between ML and MC was dull from the start to the middle of the story and then it developed really fast towards the end which made their romance seem forced and weird

From the beginning of the novel until the middle part the story is really interesting and fun to read but after that it just gets boring and not very interesting. The romance between the MC and ML is the major reason for that. The romance is really sudden and rushed making it seems forced. After MC gets revenge against her step mom rest of the revenge part all happens due to MLs help and MC doesn't contribute much afterword's as well. MC kind of fades in the background after the... more>> step mom revenge part. I would have liked to read more about the achievements of MC than a whole essay describing MLs beauty. <<less

If the translator can translate like this all the way to the end, I would probably be the happiest person alive. I've just gotten off reading translations that were amazing in the beginning, then was abandoned, before being hacked to pieces by another translator and it never took off in the end because... well, it's unreadable. (Another novel in this rebirth genre. Another reviewer shares the same thoughts.) I could tell the translators worked hard on this, kudos to them, especially Blooming Translations. Thank you for your efforts. Everything flowed... more>> very nicely.

This work has potential to be another breakout star, the other being Malicious Empress, both from the same author.

After reading similar and mediocre titles, finding out my fav novel Princess Wei Yang was a work of plagiarism (putting this here to alert ppl to avoid reading it) and with the near completion of Malicious Empress, the title came at the right time. <<less

It's a good story. If one like " the rebirth of the malicious empress" story then you will like it. Because both has similarities and also not.

The MC came back as Jiang Li. Then she started her plan for revenge. And also this story is like author other stories slow romance. After 200+ you would get to see romance.


Ah yes. The romance is so slow that after ML kissed MC when both ML and MC confirm their feelings for each other then you got to see couple romance.

Oh yes her past life family members they are alive. She found them.

As always Author tried to describe the ML devilish handsome. But XJX is the best ML ever for me. The ML is Too much OP. He is also pitiful. I enjoyed the story. But not much as Shen Miao story.

There are many schemes in the novel. But I enjoyed most until the stepmom death arc. After that new turn 200+ I didn't read clearly except the chapters the couple confirmed their feelings and read the ending fully (last chapter --a truly long long chapter). But the ending was really emotional. I almost cried. There's also couple separation for a time period at the end part.

The plot is slightly different from the usual reincarnate/transmigration novels, and the female lead isn't OP and do know her limits. However, your male lead is the typical OP male lead, which is totally acceptable, given the premise of the story. Romance portion is super slow, as it only blooms near the end of the series.

I do enjoy the male lead from "malicious empress" more, as there is more story with him than the male lead in this one.

It's a rather complete story, and is not needlessly long.

Malicious Empress brought me to this novel and, like it's predecessor, this one doesn't disappoint in terms of plotting / schemes / face slapping. Plots actually make sense and the fast pacing makes for a fun, page turning read. 5/5 for this part.

I was, however, quite disappointed with the romance - bland and not at all well developed in my opinion. I give it a 2/5. I couldn't help but compare it with the perfect progression in Malicious Empress - although it was slow, we had hints starting from... more>> early on and there was incredible chemistry / sparks in every interaction. The romance here paled in comparison and was non-existent or flat for most of the novel. Seemed like the author put things on the back burner, suddenly remembered the romance at the very end and realized she needed to cram in a lot of ground all at once...

Major spoiler!!!


200+ chapters in, out of 240, we get the first kiss, confession, marriage proposal all together in the same scene at once. This scene was sweetly written but just terribly sudden and rushed, and I wish the author did more to let the romance and tension build from the very beginning. Until this point the MC didn't know the male lead liked her and to be honest, I could barely tell either. Sure, the ML helped her out a lot but it always seemed awfully platonic.


Also mild annoyance with the ending - the author seems to like to use a similar troupe in all her novels for the last few chapters...

Major spoiler again!!!


of some sort of "forced separation" between the main leads for the last few chapters. In malicious empress it was the coma, here it's one of the leads "going missing" - both times I thought it was too contrived and just lazy writing especially in comparison to the exquisite and well thought out plots for the rest of the novel.


Overall still an enjoyable read and despite some minor gripes, love this author's works. <<less

Before reading this novel just know you will die before the translation will finish and the MTL is pretty hard to understand so better of reading other novels in the first place.

The story is pretty good. MC and ML is a bit mary sue and gary stu but if you like these kind of leads you will like them. The schemes are not too complicated and the face slappings are moderate and not overboard. The pace is a bit slow and you could skip several paragraphs just describing someone's beauty... more>> but all in all not bad. <<less

This story is less cunning and gory compared to the other two novels but the storyline is quite satisfactory. I do love all FL created by Qian Shan Cha Ke. Jiang Li has a different charm than Shen Miao and Jiang Ruan. Compared to other two, she is more expressive and less violent. She is also more gentle and kind.

ML is a husband material!

... more>>

ML knows how to cook and his dishes and desserts are superb XD. He is also the most gentleman, can sing opera and less shameless. His temperament is between Xie Jing Xing and Xiao Shao. Xie Jing Xing has Mo Yun Army, Xiou Shao hold powerful assassin group, then this ML is a spy master.

He is handsome of course (but couldn't beat Xie Jing Xing in terms of description XD). I love the banter between FL and ML and I think ML background is the saddest among the previous one.

FL has similar premise like FL in ill-fated consort.

She was sent away to nunnery because of step mom, father is a high ranking official, spoilt step sister, mother died early and mother's family is kind to FL. But the difference is FL father has conscience and he has regrets towards FL. He tried to redeem his mistakes but still couldn't perform his part as a good father to Jiang Li. But FL is not cruel enough to scheme against this father to death or let the family miserable, but his ending is quite enough karma for the real Jiang Li according to FL


The story focuses more on the schemes by FL and ML, so there will be less story about the people around them (like the servants, FL maiden family, ML friends). Even I think FL maids and ML subordinates are quite bland. They are not gossipers like Cong Yang or Lu Zhu. However I love ML grandpa so much! He is a moodmaker throughout the story!


But he died later and that saddened me the most T.T


This story is worth the reading although I still wish the author to expend the side story more. <<less

Loved this so much.

If I want to compare this work with another novel, I'd say that this story is a better, more refined version of Princess Wei Yang.

While Wei Yang's story would make you both sad and tired albeit the excellence, this one isn't that bitter or fraught with senseless cruelty. Everything the FL did is within clear reason and it wasn't overdone.

Also, I'm happy that the FL actually have a reliable partner in crime ML for once. Pretty much, this kind of historical stories are usually laden with MCs... more>> who are capable solo fighters but being in a co-op with the ML makes this novel a whole lot better.

The slow part of this story is nicely paced. I've never been bored for once. You can actually enjoy the slowness as a breather before you're frantically reading the middle part 😂 <<less

Enjoyed the story so much I had to mtl it!! Totally worth the time I spent on it!!!

The ML and the MC build up their trust in each other as the story goes on, not like other stories where the guy starts overly pampering the girl without us understanding from where this "deep affection" came from.

... more>>

The only character that I really felt sorry for was Yin Zhilin, I don't know why but I feel like his parents just broke the guy into becoming a mad character. The guy was a really kind person and then one day his dad crashes everything in his life, basically we can say that he was forced into breaking down to become the final villain of this story. He had to pay for the crimes of his parents when all faults lie in their selfishness, especially his mother, that empress dowager is just disgusting.


The ending is fulfilling!! <<less

So, some might hate me for this review I write, lolol.

Anyway, now that I have read all three novels of this author, I can safely say, this novel is carbon copy of the other 2 novels of rebirth. ╮ (╯▽╰) ╭ Maybe the author likes this whole troupe or maybe just lazy to look for other theme, who knows. Anyway, if you have read rebirth of malicious empress from military lineage and rebirth of ill fated consort, you know 100% of what to expect.

Only difference is the MC family background, circumstances of rebirth, revenge target, and

the type of separation the CP faced


Slow moving romance plot at the start and then a humongous rush of romance near the end. I'm not even surprised.

However, compared to the other two, I think this one is the best in term of story telling. The story is engaging and it's compact. Due to the background of both MC and ML, I think this novel is the most ancient china-esque of this author works. I can see her improvement from the other 2.

I love both MC and ML. I just wish there weren't so many description of how handsome ML is, alas.

There's a lot of foreshadowing about incoming face slapping and it's fun to think with the MC of what could actually be happening and how to counter it. The MC is both intelligence and smart. She's more stable than empress Shen, though it pains me to say that. I love Empress Shen.

The political turbulence is quite intense, and the fact that this rebirth isn't the go-back-to-the-past kind of rebirth, complicated MC's revenge.

All in all, I recommend to read this. I'll go back reading this when the translator gets some more chapters stored. So far, the translation is great and rather fast to update.

Great story!! MC is awesome and ML is cool!!

Really liked the way MC went about the revenge, her emotions are well portrayed.

Really loved that her previous life- family members are alive and together, adding to her new happy life!


Would have liked more sweet moments with ML, but his initial reluctance and then helplessness towards her is also beautiful! Can be read again once it is properly translated!!

A cute, heartfelt ending to an amazing story!

I came here through Malicious Empress and I was not disappointed. I loved the clear distinctions between the two books. The ML and the FL from both books are very smart and think things through but I enjoyed the fact that both parties in this book wanted Revenge for wrongs committed and that they intersected in a way. I'm going to read a few of her others as well because I was pleased. The romance was more of a slow burn than Malicious Empress though so be warned. It was... more>> quite worth it though and the time frame is shorter than Malicious Empress. There's was around less than 2 years while the other was almost 4. <<less

Summary w some spoilers not under the spoiler tag so read at your own risk I guess

? But this is a really good novel and I really enjoyed reading it.

From a smart, (most) beautiful lady who was loved by all to someone who lost everything, this tells us the story of MC who got killed by the Princess because she fell in love at first sight w MC's husband. MC was plotted against by the princess and was betrayed by her friend and husband and became the laughing stock in town (because she "cheated" on her husband).


Her husband betrayed her for power because the princess, , being the princess obviously could give him the court/imperial (?) power that he wanted and also his family members didnt really give a sh*t bout MC cause they were greedy and wanted wealth and power


The romance came REALLY slow though even though the ML and MC met really early because they were neither friends nor enemies


Even though MC"s actions of revenge sometimes disrupted ML's plans or sth I think


But the romance was really worth the wait, , at least for me.

MC was forced to marry the son of a general (or sth) because the general won a war and asked for the marriage as a reward from the emperor and MC didnt wanna be married again and also to someone who she didnt have romantic feelings for. Because MC and ML was kinda closer at this point in the story, , MC decided to bid ML farewell. (I forgot to state that at this point, 1. ML spared MC's life from the deal earlier on because he couldnt bear to kill her and 2. MC realized her feelings for ML but decides to hide it, , although its super obvious x3) ML then asks her why she doesnt want to marry and if she has anyone she likes, , to which she said she didnt wanna marry because she didnt like the other guy and because of her past incident (iirc). ML then asks her if she has anyone she likes in which she denies. ML then tells her that he knows he likes her, and asked her if she knew that he liked her too and AHHHHHH THIS MOMENT REALLY GOT ME ML is so sweet after they confessed and all, , also ML talked to the emperor the day before the general asked for the reward to be the marriage so!! ML is MC's marriage partner! Not the other guy!! Yay!!


Anyways!! Do read it if yall can!

Instead of reading all the fillers in the chapters of this book, why don't I go read a history textbook on some dynasty instead? At least, the trivia info could count as making me more knowledgeable.

Honestly, the story stagnates on these info dumps on this and that person, their backstory and connections. And instead of easing us into this info with the MC, the MC already knows all this like the back of her hand. (Despite being a small officials daughter who did not even grow up in the capital... more>> before, she seems to know every political intrigue of the capital)

The MC makes one random boring move, a couple of filler paragraphs or chapters later, they tell us this move is going to have big impact and go on into filler explanation to tell us why.


You don't get to explore and do things out with the MC. There is a feeling of being left behind.

And instead of long paragraphs of explanation, I wish the characters actions, dialogues and scenes were what we used to get to know this world and it's politics instead. <<less

The romance in this story is better developed than Malicious Empress. MC and ML are just acquaintances, then allies, friends and finally lover. ML is not developing some strange 'appearing all the time wherever MC is and just being a brat' disease. He'll stay silent, until MC asks him for help.

Yeah, this one is not as ruthless as the other novel. But after she finsihes her revenge, I'm tired of reading another conflict. Basically, we see how she deals with her body enemy that wants to kill her (her stepmother,... more>> and the other daughters). After this, we'll read she extract her revenge onto her previous life husband, his family, his lover. Then finally, the last conflict is of course the ML that involves the kingdom.

I cried a river for her father, and her brother. Though, it was frustratingly annoying how the author created filler plot for the brother's future wife. I mean, it's totally unnecessary to create a healer/poisoiner with her own big secret plot and matching her with mc's brother. It's a three in one novel. So tired. Not reading this again. <<less

For the most part it was really, really good. It's a little slow right at the beginning, but the middle is really gripping. The only issue for me was that I felt somewhat disconnected from the last arc, which was tying up loose ends and mostly about the ML's story. I'm glad to see a decent backstory for him, but there were suddenly several new characters, it seemed as though everyone I cared about was just a bystander in that section, and Jiang Li went from a woman who was... more>> capable in her own right to a damsel in distress.

If I had to point out another flaw, I would say that ML was also just a little bit toooooo pretty and OP throughout, but I really enjoyed how he and his psuedo-family interacted, his grandfather chopping up his flowers on purpose always made me laugh.

Otherwise the novel's big strength is that pacing was excellent throughout. It's much more compact than the author's other stories, which really contributes to how hard it is to put down. The plot always seems to be moving! <<less

I enjoyed this one a lot!

Jiang Li starting over in a new person's life instead of going back in time changes the story up a bit from her other works, as she doesn't have the super knowledge of the future that the others have. I love Jiang Li as a protagonist; she's a bit less cold-hearted than some of the other protagonists. I love seeing her make connections with her new family, and being more open to trusting people.

The romance is super slow, even slower than her other works and... more>> really does not pick up until like the last 20% of the story. That said, overall I felt the plot of the story was solid and kept moving at a good pace. <<less

Well, another serve from the author of malicious empress. I've read this after the ill-fated consort, and it's another fresh take with the whole rebirth plot. Of course, the revenge and face-slapping are there, with less death than ill-fated consort (and I'm not complaining about ill-fated consort, come on, she has the most tragic backstory and her ruthlessness is totally justifiable though how I wish the princess in this novel met the FL in ill-fated, lol)

And I don't find the romance out of place? Like with the FL's previous... more>> experience with love and with ML's personality, I really expected the slow burn and initial denials of attraction. Inserting overt romance with all the conspiracies and plottings happening would make it more out of place because FL is in her one-track mission of revenge while ML is in the middle of cooking his own agenda that had started for so long and all these conspiracies seemed had turned him jaded about most people. ML finding her interesting and worth his help is basically him having a crush though he won't see it like that and just say he's only interested about the 'play' and how it will affect his own agenda, lol.

The romance didn't seemed forced or out of left field for me. It's just natural in the grand scheme of things in the novel. It would only just be a distraction for FL whose plans mostly depend on how other people plot against her and her more active approach requires her attention anyway. She's also juggling around three families. When everything almost settled down in her revenge-spree, that's when she has the time to reflect more about his relationship with ML. And ML slowly falling for her can be seen with his actions, him making exceptions for her and accomodating her is already telling.

Anyway, it's worth the MTL. I'll still read the translation because the translators really are amazing. <<less

The story has its own charm. Jiang li does not kill left and right, in contrast to the other MC of author. Rather, she's like a smiling demon (not fox since she's not described as alluring MC). She kills (had her own revenged) only to those hateful ones. I enjoy story more, since there are not much cannon fodder that is implicated by MC's revenge.

You'll probably want to chop the princess to pieces. I wish that girl had encountered Jiang Ruan instead (of ill fated consort). Well, I'll read d... more>> ending first and update my comment later.
