Phoenix’s Requiem


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

Painfully shy and conflict-averse, Yun Ruoyan is a scion to a noble house only in name, a puppet embroiled in political machinations beyond her ken. At the tender age of eighteen, poisoned and at death’s door, she finds herself thrown out into the streets. Her relatives have all been executed, betrayed by her dear husband and her cousin. With her dying breath, she curses her own weakness and swears revenge.

When Yun Ruoyan awakens once more, she is thirteen, transported five years into the past by the will of the heavens. Her death-defying experience has changed her: no longer is she the malleable creature she once was but more questions await at every corner- What is the truth behind the birthmark that disfigures her appearance? What are the circumstances surrounding her mother’s mysterious death?

Will the phoenix rise from the ashes, or will she fall once more in thrall to fate?

Cliche, and not even cliche done well. I gave up on this faster than I usually do because even just the first few chapters made me roll my eyes.

MC is "ugly" because she has a birthmark on her face. You just know that somehow the birthmark is going to get removed so that she can become a shocking beauty. So dumb, a birthmark really isn't a big deal.

Villain plots are so dumb MC practically deserved to be screwed over in her first life. She wakes up to one of those,... more>> "oh no, someone stole the precious knick-knack" plots, where her evil cousin tries to frame her by... just saying she did it. And apparently, everyone went along with that in her first life and she was ruined, even when they couldn't find the knick-knack in her room. In this life, she ingeniously counters the plot with the great skill of... counter accusation! So they search her cousins room and find it. Like... wut? Cousin didn't even plant it in MC's room? Literally no evidence was required the first time around? How is that even a plot? Did the MC just play dead and let herself be convicted the first time?

Less than 5 minutes later, MC discovers the injured probably-the-male-lead on her front step. He forcibly kisses her for no apparent reason. They have a discussion about how she is poisoned as he lays bleeding out in front of her. A deal is struck that they will help each other.

  1. I literally guarantee that when her poison is cured her birthmark will go away.
  2. Do you usually have trouble decided whether to help an injured person? I get that it's hella suspicious that he's there, but maybe your life was ruined in the first timeline because you're an indecisive b*tch. And that's probably going to need more than just dying once to cure, sorry, I don't make the rules.
I don't mind reading cliche stories (or I wouldn't be on novelupdates, haha), but at least flesh them out a little! The point of a cliche is that the foundation is there so the author should be able to spend more time on the other details. This author didn't bother, so I'm not going to either. <<less

This story was so cliche that I seriously thought it was a story I had read before. It's like the author took parts of all female MC wuxia novels and mashed them together calling it a book.

I got to chapter 231 (I was sick needed something mindless) and literally nothing happens. Lots of story arcs start but nothing is ever finished before a new arc begins. So many things don't make sense for a rebirth standpoint

how could she miss an entire rebilion her first life when she was 13-14.


The ML and MC feelings are forced


one minute Li Mo wants to kill her and cares nothing of her life then not much happens between the two but he is in love with her

Her feelings are cautious then the next minute she loves him, just out of the blue like okay we love each other now.

Let's not even get into how until chapter 231 she still 13/14 (author never really clear on ages) and ML is 22-ish?


The revenge plot seems forgotten, she just lets her cousin walk all over her, she is very tolerant of the Yun family who could care less about her and she is more like a damsel in distress that needs Li Mo to save her, than a strong woman who's gotten a second chance. I mean she doesn't even learn.


the part with the 2nd Rong sister had me literally face palm, she just runs right in and gets herself poisoned... again.


The author is very inconsistent with levels, ages, time etc. Just a bad story all around. <<less
