Phoenix Destiny

Description

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

Lu Mingshu had never believed in fate.

She hadn’t believed in it when her father had remarried and caused her family to break into pieces, nor had she believed in it when she’d been thrown into a valley to perish.

She hadn’t believed in it when she didn’t have any resources to cultivate with, nor had she believed in it when she’d been condemned by everyone.

She climbed up little by little from dust, while her reign soared into the sky, which caused the world to look on in fear!

If justice doesn’t come, I’ll personally obtain it.

If fate disregards me, I‘ll open up a way to survive.

No matter what fate throws at me, I will surely become a phoenix!

“What a ruthless woman. I’m willing to risk my life and limbs for you, willing to be calculative for you – I’m even willing to be an enemy of the entire world for you. Aren’t you moved even a little?”

“That’s right, since I‘m such a ruthless woman, what exactly is it that you like about me?”

Traditional Xianxia from a female protagonist point of view finally! ~ ('. '~) (~' . ') ~ So right now, I am only 12 chapters into this, but the groundwork laid for the rest of the story is well thought out with many potential paths for the MC to follow. Can't wait for more. *Now I am at 114-115 the plot has had 5 major events occur and has developed wonderfully.

I have been looking for a CN with a strong female MC for real... where she cultivates and goes on adventures. This LN held promise earlier for that concept. Unfortunately, while the MC does get really strong she can never be the strongest.

I have not found a single CN where the female MC is the strongest under the sky. There is always one (ie the Male Lead) who is stronger. Maybe this has something to do with some Chinese cultural thing where the female can never be stronger than her... more>> male companion. Its rather unfortunate, no matter how many cheats the female MC gets, nor how much effort she puts into her practice, she can never be stronger than the ML.

Anyway, enough of my grumbling, this LN seems decent but gets disappointing later on with the ML either always saving the female MC or taking on the stronger opponent in fights. Author seems to have lost the plot and made the female MC into a side character for the ML. <<less

9 1-star ratings and only 2 reviews for such a good novel. So I have to write my own review!

The first part made it seem like the usual "neglected child joins sect" trope. But it became much better after that. MC meets the sect founder's skeleton and a 9x9x9 Rubik's cube (It was called a Heavenly Wheel but I know better *smirk*). And she gets a legacy after solving the cube. Did I mention it was a frickin 9x9x9 cube?!! (Btw, the MC likes to do things by calculating and... more>> using math and deduction, even in combat situations.) Through this "cube, " she can communicate and trade with other worlds and go there for short periods of time for combat practice. The other worlds have their own systems, and her take on them is interesting.

Spoiler

The other worlds include no-magic scientific worlds like ours (she got a compass and math books from one of them), magic worlds (probably the western-fantasy-hero kind), and other xianxia worlds like hers.

[collapse]

It's not too OP yet because she can only use limited parts of the "cube, " but this has so much potential.

This MC is quite likeable. Even at 8 years old, she's quite smart and tries to be strong. Having her mother and grandfather die one after the other so quickly must be devastating, but she makes the best of her situation. (This happens in the first few chapters so I don't consider that a spoiler.)
Spoiler

It's a good thing she met a master whom she considers a father figure. He doesn't care about much in the world but slowly he begins to care for her, unlike her good-for-nothing biological father.

[collapse]

MC also has this cute friend/playmate who stood up for her and is just as strong as her. In ch37, he fully trusted her and even put his life in her hands, which is really touching. I'm totally shipping these two!!!

The "villains" haven't been dwelled on a lot so far, but they're not too annoying (with one exception. Zhou Yinru, I'm looking at you!) and seem to have depth. Not everyone is determined to push the MC into a hellhole, unlike other novels.

The worldbuilding is just beginning and I'm already excited. MC has spent most of her time in her old rural home or in the sect. Despite the out-of-world trips, we haven't seen much of her world yet.

Seems like this novel has a lot of potential. You never know what's going to happen next because it doesn't go the usual ways xianxia novels do. After 37 chapters, it still doesn't feel draggy, and it feels like the MC's adventure is just beginning. <<less

I'm really liking how this is novel is starting. Well written, well detailed universe, many different characters and no cliché bad guys or stupid fans of the MC only there to say 'wow, you're so strong!'. The MC is a smart and courageous child, but not a Mary Sue, I'm looking forward to see how she develops growing up. The cultivation and fighting methods aren't clear yet, but that's because the author is taking his time establishing the universe.

Anyway, if you are looking for a tale of revenge through martial... more>> arts, but a good one, this might be for you! <<less

Edit: since 10 chapters ago there's almost only filler talk, tons of irrelevant characters who all have names and their irrelevant conversations. Also, after ch88 I have to give this novel a huge finger and stop reading, because ... more>>
Spoiler

she meets the two scum who drove her grandfather and mother to death, almost crippled her and constantly plots arainst her alone in a forest (plus their bodyguard). Of course they try to kill her because "no one will know anyway". She has no problem killing the guard, but instead of butchering the two like the vile pigs that they are, SHE TALKS TO THEM FOR A WHOLE CHAPTER??? SLAPS THEM THEM AND LEAVES????? WTF?!?!?!?! YOU'RE NOT A "GOOD PERSON", YOU JUST KILLED SOMEONE WHO JUST OBEYED A COMMAND, BUT THE EVIL SCUM WHO WILL ALWAYS TRY TO KILL YOU AND PEOPLE CLOSE TO YOU, YOU LET GO???? JUST DIE! Basically the retard author did it to create more drama and tension later, but what an idiotic move, like there's no alternative

[collapse]
Initial review: I was very reluctant to try this, becase almost everything gravity picks up is the lowest, most generic type of popular trash that shouldn't exist.

I'm happy I did, because this here is a very interesting combination of femMC, "system" and ok-writing. Definitely looking forward for more. <<less

If you're looking for romance, while there is a smudge in this story, it's definitely not a romantic type of story. MC's father takes her mother's family resources and abandons the family while looking for greener pastures. Due to some extreme circumstances, the MC as an orphan is sent back to her father to raise. However, she's basically just thrown to a mountain with a useless new teacher who doesn't teach and absolutely no resources or education. With a fortuitous encounter she gets access to a new virtual world that... more>> is like a game, with points, forum boards, trading, and chats to other dimensions/worlds. It's a little different from other stories, because the MC is not a transmigrated soul, nor is she a reincarnated. Instead she's a regular soul in this ancient time period with a serious cheat of her "gamer's ID". Throughout her life she levels up seriously through hard work and her cheat skills to empower herself so that she can get revenge on her father and become truly independent.

While the plot is interesting to hold me, it's the MC's personality that is a bit too dull to read. She's a hard worker but she's extremely cold and indifferent to everyone and everything around her except her useless master and one or two close companions. With such a boring personality, she's too 1-dimensional and a bit boring to read despite all the action and level ups.

On the other hand, her love interest is more fleshed out and has more personality. To be honest, I read all the way to the current raws mostly for the Male Lead than the Female Lead. With a poisonous tongue, and a selfish outlook on life, he's quite entertaining to read about. Especially, how he deals with his "quasi father" and the various potential guys eyeing the MC is pretty hilarious. He quite fits the role that geniuses are utterly difficult to deal with and leave everyone speechless with his manipulations.

Unfortunately, the story focuses more on the MC and her constant level ups, while she remains cold and indifferent to the ML. It isn't until around chapter 800 that she responds to the ML, but it's still basically the same cold personality. So as a romance, there's barely a smudge of it in the story because they often spend decades apart, and even when together, she only treats him as barely as a companion. His dedication to the MC is quite romantic and admirable though, so it keeps me hoping that there will be more romance.

Plot wise, I always felt that there was too much repetitiveness going on. MC constantly goes on missions, beats her opponents, and then gets trapped somewhere for decades. Only to come back and awe everyone with her new leveled up OP skills. Then the cycle repeats, which probably normal for most xianxia stories anyway. I just wish that the MC had more emotions so that she would feel less like an android. <<less

This is quite different from what I thought it would be in a good way.

Do not let the romance tag throw you off because from what I am seeing there is little to no romance so far unlike other novels with a female MC where they practically cram the romance tag down the readers throat.

Also unlike other novels where the MC gets crazy strong this one takes more of the approach that the MC is smart making use of tricks and calculations instead of brute force.

Pretty good novel! However, competely ignore the synopsis above. At least up until chapter 84, which is what has been currently translated today, the MC is absolutely nothing like the description, and there is not one handsome male lead or whatever chasing after her. It's nothing like the other generic female lead novels. Heck, she was only 11 years old up until like chapter 80. Finally just had a time jump to 15.

The one problem I have with this novel is the sudden inclusion of levels and... more>> game points. Think it must have been trending when the author had already started the story, and he just jammed it in. In my opinion, this was a sloppy move and a mistake. Can't write in too much detail as I'm on my phone, but if you want a decent female lead novel that's actually different from the rest, this will do...

Unfortunately, while the translation is almost perfect, minus some errors here and there, the release schedule isn't anything special. Seems like it'll be slow going waiting for more. <<less

Wow what a ride! After lot of Chinese novels with female leads I find myself liking this one the best. It deserve to be translated more. Lu Mingshu is not a reincarnator or a transmigrator, just a little girl thrown into the dirty plan of a no good father and his second family. She's brave and cute, we see her becoming a martial artist and overturning fate.

I really want to see more of this series.

Ok this is a damn good Female protagonist Xianxia novel because it doesn't follow the cliches of female protagonist types.

Here her cheat is a Rubik's Cube with 81 faces the former owner couldn't solve this because he sucks at math while our main heroine is pretty good with that so she gets his cheat on his burial site and thats pretty good because only a few people can solve that and she didn't just found on the rode.

After that she goes on a power tripe leveling up like crazy and... more>> thats what I like about it she acts like a male character in these types of novel caring more about power and cultivation then other stuff. <<less

I'm liking this novel.
It's different compared to other normal Xianxia with a female protagonist, not so many clichés and I like how the MC acts.

She's cool-headed and smart/calculative, doesn't provoke other people unnecessarily and isn't arrogant, she isn't acting childish and throws tantrums whenever she feels like. She has a cheat that will make her stronger but she doesn't get OP quickly as she slowly learns and make mistakes here and there, although not very noticeable.

I'm not far in the novel since not many chapters are translated so I'm... more>> not exactly sure who the male lead is... I really want to read more but I need to wait for the updates ;-;
Really ah, it was getting so good.... <<less

Finding this gem, I was actually extremely surprised. Although it does include a few stereotypes (scheming siblings, etc) this webnovel has managed to include some unique things that I really liked, such as the MC's personality. She isn't the "I was born cold and ruthless", but she is gradually growing there through her experiences and slowly getting rid of her naivety. All the while keeping her morals. She is not the type to cheat others out of more than what she could've made them... more>>
Spoiler

as shown in c124, she makes the shop buy the pill recipe for only half price and tells them they won't be able to achieve her effect despite the fact she could've made them buy it for full price and not say how they would not be able to make their pill as good as hers

[collapse]
which is largely different to most female cultivator novels, who seem to enjoy cheating everyone around them out of everything. What I personally loved was the fact that we could see her gradually building her strength. We don't see the typical seen in most cultivation books "she meditated for __ hours and then had a breakthrough to the __ realm". We see her actually working for the strength she's acquired, whether it be through fights or tedious steps. A downside for me however was all the characters. I could barely remember any of the side characters names. <<less
