Phoenix Ascending


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

The heavens and earth change when the blood phoenix descends.

She is the chosen one of the blood phoenix, and she shoulders the blood debt of the entire royal clan. She renounces her fair facade with resolution and enthralls the world whilst clad in white, bestirring nations and dynasties with the flip of a hand.

He is an invincible war god and never shows mercy in his slaughter. His frozen heart is disturbed by her alone, and his tenderness reserved only for her.

Do we work together with one heart, or walk the separate paths of strangers? Do we clash against each other with weapons instead…

In this vast world, I compose music only with you, to astound eras to come.

Some of my gripes:

    • The pacing is too fast at the beginning (first twenty or so chapters) of the novel, which really stands out when it slows down afterwards, and just because in its haste it foregoes characterization, proper buildup, well worked out setting, etc.... Haste makes waste.
    • The pacing is part of the plot. The plot in general suffers from the haste as well. Not to mention that it all is a little too easy for the main character, the prince's trust doesn't always feel realistic,...
    • As I said, the characterization suffers: the original crown prince is a typical wastrel, Nan Xun is a typical male lead, the second prince isn't done that well despite taking a lot of the spotlight and even the main character and her motivations feel wishy-washy.
    • These sorts of novels don't portray women well, in my opinion. As in, they're written badly. Regularly, sentences that end with "... because she is a woman" are thrown in to show e.g. the limits for women, but at the same time they act all fussy and bitchy when the plot allows for it. Eight Treasures Trousseau is an example of a novel that does way better in this respect. The main character suddenly swoons for the main lead; see Empress of Military Lineage for better executed romance in a somewhat similar novel.
Most of my points relate to the start of the novel, but their influence is at least partly felt later on as well. I do have to say it got better a bit after the pacing slowed down. Even so, the characters, the plot, all of them give a simplified feel.

In the end, this is a novel that had potential. It's not bad, but not very good either. It's let down by just being ok in about every category there is to judge a novel. No glaring faults, no shining highs. It's good. A 3 is what I give it, a solid 3 here on NU. If strictly judging, it'd be a 2. I'll still keep reading it because I enjoy it anyway.

This novel is interesting, and overall the MC is likeable. There are a lot of words dedicated to describing her appearance, which clearly draws both men and women.

The major issue I have with this novel so far is the logical flaw- that the MC is a strategist and is supposedly very smart, yet she goes out in public with two figures she's trying to hide her relationship with when there are so many eyes around. It's unlikely that nobody notices or reports it to the person she's supposedly siding with.... more>> Also many times she's able to quickly (and unrealistically) convince someone who tried to murder her or someone who betrayed her to join her side, and she's so naive to believe in them. At first, I found this novel exciting, but these logical gaps are annoying. <<less

The opening is good with a fast pace. then the author decide that its too fast so we get lots of drags n fillers after tens of chapters. it probably about 1/3 of total chapters so brace yourself for those annoying fillers n hopefully u get to the end of this novel.

MC just a normal person. cursed by his phoenix destiny that make a country pulverized her country to have that destiny as theirs. in the middle of story we gonna get some illogical plot where we gonna shake our... more>> head for how it goes. like how MC walks in public with 2 people that she supposed not to when shes manipulating the new crown prince. the fights also kind of unreasonable, imo it only to show how ML care for MC with nothing significant with the plot progress. the MCs personality is also kind of wishy washy about her revenge n romance, cant blame her since shes on her youth...

Overall its not bad, but it could be better written than how it is right now.

3/5 rate from me. <<less

Love it! It's an absolute hidden gem. The description doesn't nearly describe how stunning the novel is. The MC is quite clever, she is not OP like seen in other generic novels, she is quite human with character flaws. It's a breath of fresh air amongst all the Mary Sue novels. Really recommended, you will not regret it.

I love this! The main character is strong, cunning, yet can be fragile at times. The main male lead (from what I’ve assumed) is not overbearing and really supports the main female lead in her quest for revenge.

The plots are also clever, and not as unbelievable and ridiculous, or just pure malice. The author is very good at creating not only great plots, but also belieable characters. Even the main character has her flaws and is not always perfect that she always win over her enemies. She suffers setbacks, but... more>> she gets over it and comes back stronger, though she may be wounded and scarred in the process of it. It’s what makes it more believable, and feels like a mature story that’s not all about your mother-in-laws, concubines, and all that jazz. It’s bigger than that, even bigger than romance.

There is barely a hint of romance so far, because this is not a novel about that, but this is a story of a personal growth of a young woman. The pace is great, not too fast, yet is not purposefully extended by the authors as well to reach 3000 chapters. Every chapter matters and each plot is not repetitive.

I also love the translation, and amongst of the many I’ve read so far, ranks amongst one of the best translations. So thank you Volare Novels!

I cannot wait to read more to know how her revenge goes. <<less
