Poison Genius Consort


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

Easily cowed and bullied, she was the useless, ugly woman with no talent in medical skills. Supported by millions, he was Tianning’s most respected duke with the power to move all under Heaven. On their wedding day the bridal sedan was carried to the front doors, but the Duke of Qin’s gates were shut tight.

They told her, ‘Come back tomorrow.’

All alone, she walked step-by-step full of pride through the duke’s doors. Little could they imagine, this unattractive good-for-nothing was a beautiful, genius doctor of poisons!

After transmigrating to the past, poisons expert Han Yunxi finds herself on the verge of being married off to the country’s second most powerful man, the Duke of Qin. Her future life seems set–except her husband is an unfeeling ice block, her in-laws think she’s a eyesore, the empress dowager wants to use her for her own goals, and poison-related plots abound.

Alone, the intelligent (and sensible) Yunxi must carve her own space from the intricate web of court intrigue and the jianghu, relying on her words, wits, and wisdom to survive. Adapt when necessary, use force when required; to survive and thrive is the name of the game to a prosperous life.

No matter what, she’ll prove her right to live!

Good story. However, their love story is absolute trash. MC says she wouldnt fall in love, then get star-struck. LF gives her the cold shoulder then she says she wont fall in love with him. She reassure with herself to draw the line. LF then helps her again, she gets star struck again. Repeatitive cycle. For the love the motherf*ckin christ, even if he is the ML, I wouldnt let myself feel that way.

I know, her life is dependant on his status but still, she should have more guts.

I liked PGC at the beginning, but as the story progressed, I can't help but be turned off by the MC's and ML's lack of moral conscience. They will sacrifice the lives of innocent people without any remorse.

... more>>

for example, once the ML ordered his guards to block MC from saving the supporting male lead. The MC then used poison to kill the guards. The ML didn't say anything about it or feel pity for his dead guards though. The MC also didn't feel guilty at all for murdering people who were just following orders of her husband.


Besides, the ML is too much of a jerk to other people aside from the MC. He never shows care to his family, will fire his loyal subordinates for mistakes caused by the MC, innocent people who found out about his secret by accident etc. Despite that, the ML is still admired and respected or feared by practically everyone. I found that hard to believe since he does not even have any friends. His only merits are superficial: looks, money, physical strength. Seriously, why would anybody tolerate such a jerk is beyond me. <<less

A little unbearable. I wish the MC was more independent, why is she so stubborn as to stay and suffer in the household she's at? Her skills are definitely realistic, and I don't find faults in the fact that she's not extremely OP. What irks me the most though, are the villains. They're so bratty and throw tantrums that hold the MC back and it's like the MC has no support whatsoever and even if she does, it barely helps her. All the villains have status and they use it... more>> to punish the MC, etc. I feel like the villains were given a little too much power. <<less

Just started reading. It's an interesting story and I appreciate that the main character is not a undercover agent in her previous life. While she does have an out-of-place "hidden mechanism" in her body that acts like a storage and has a poison warning system, it does not make her OP. A part of me wishes she could just leave the city and just travel on her own. But I guess her goal is to just simply reside in the the palace and not have to worry about food and... more>> living necessities. I really hate the male lead. And the other male interests don't really appeal to me either. Hoping character development gets better as it goes.

I rated this 3 because I'm willing to continue reading, even though I'm not raving about it. Hope that makes sense. <<less

I loved it. Yes, past tense. It was truly great, I read it for 3 days non-stop, BUT. Yes, but. I was disappointed. I was repulsed. Around chapter 465-470, I was so repulsed by how the main character acted that I finally put it down. It ruined it so much that I lost interest in reading.

The main character was supposed to be strong and respectable, but just three chapters alone ruined it for me. Her character crashed to the ground if you asked me. [Trust me, I can continue reading... more>> other novels where the main character had somebody raped by multiple individuals, but just a few chapters of this ruined it for me.]

She became so blind and thick skinned that she lost her character. She lost her charm. She became even more useless as the chapters go on...


She was so in love that she blindly trusted an individual despite proof otherwise and even condemned that person who tried to prove it.

The female protagonist is so annoying. She is described as a strong willed and independent woman, which is totally NOT the case. Her character is a joke. Her actions are not well justified. There was this one scene where she killed an innocent guard to save the supporting male lead. She literally lets the male lead walk all over her. And she becomes dumb when she is around him. The male lead is not that better off. He was a jerk for the first 300 chapters and have only recently... more>> got tolerable. He lies and keeps stuff from her. He's cold and possessive. She's better off with the other two supporting male leads.

Also, I have no idea why the author made it so EVERY female character in this novel is the enemy of the protagonist. EVERY female character HATES her for NO reason. The male lead's mother, princess, empress, empress dowager etc...

And the worse part is how the protagonist does not take care of those annoying side characters that keeps reappearing and causing her problems. She is so dumb, she goes and heals people that have harm her before. Even when the facts are right in her face that the male lead is lying to her, she's in denial. I am done and dropping this novel. <<less

I would recommend this novel to anyone but just know that there's a lot of drama. I use to think that this novel was lame but after I read it, I just got addicted to it. I love it but I hate all those extra characters who would be making everything hard and complicated. It makes me think about how spoil and rude they are. If I was that rude and spoil, I would get whop by a flip flop or something.

Overall, it's going at a good pace. The ML... more>> is cold and doesnt warm up to the MC that fast like others. He's getting interested in her and showing signs of.. Liking her butlike I said before, it's a slow romance and more realistic. Unlike other novels, the MC has to rely on herself since she has no backing or anyone that helps her.

I gove the translation a 5 since it's pretty organize.

The novel would be a 5 if it wasn't for all those annoying girls. <<less

The MC here acts like a typical Chinese light novel harem member. I had to drop the story because the MC is like a housewife with some medical knowledge. I did not see the MC being independent like other female lead stories that I read, so far.

Also, the MC is supposed to be a poison genius, so I figured she would used poison offensively to protect herself. She has used poison a few times, and two of the times were non-lethal poison pranks. During an arc, she tried saving someone,... more>> but somehow it turned into everyone trying to killed her. So, I figured she would retaliate by using poison, but nope, she used poison once or twice, no matter how much she was getting tortured or her life was on the line. The way the story is going, the "cold" husband will save the damsel-in-, I mean the MC most of the time <<less

Finally, a normal and smart MC!! She's not an assassin, super spy, medicine specialist genius, or super spy assassin medicine specialist genius. MC is just a normal doctor that specialize in poison (albeit with futuristic style). ... more>>

she's dead because her superior at work throw a big book to her head because she refused to treat an important person before anyone else. She's not ruthless femMC that kills people left and right, she's actually kind hearted, but she will defend herself if someone bully her.


The romance is really slow, but every small dokidoki moment is worth waiting. You might be want to jump on the wrong ship at the start. Very recommended if you're wanna take a breathe from ruthless assassin troupe. <<less

Among the transmigrate Female Lead MC novels, this novel seems to be one of my favorites. The MC is not arrogant or blood maniac. I think the author did a good job to create a MC who is likeable and cute. She doesn't like to bully or kill but she is not a frail flower who always need the help of Male MC.

The translator and editor are doing a very good job. In short, I am enjoying to follow the adventures of Han Yunxi and I am waiting for the... more>> new releases. :) <<less

Okay-ish. The MC who was a futuristic medical expert of medicines and acupuncture, killed in a very mundane manner. She found herself transported to a different world and time. As of ch23, there is little explained about her new body's past, but she retained her medical knowledge and cheat abilities -ahem-, futuristic augments: a medical diagnostic system embedded in her brain and a pocket dimension for poisons and antidotes (!?). Right off the start the MC finds herself being humiliated on her wedding day as the other party's family was... more>> hostile to the marriage. Her own family was seemingly uncaring of her as well. In the 20+ chapters translated, the so-called husband is hardly likeable himself: we're told he's a cold person and unfriendly to women and his only redeeming features are his fantastic physique and high noble rank. It would be difficult to recommend this story to those new to the genre, it's because the antagonistic cast of this story is quite overbearing, so much so that a new reader to this sort of story would find it annoying beyond belief. One scheme was resolved in a comedic manner and that pretty much kept me reading, and I hope it continues in the same way; because otherwise there's little to differentiate this from other 'woman-transmigrated' type stories.

Each chapter is quite short, but the translator has taken good care of the text and added footnotes to explain the various ranks and conventions. Italics and inflection were given to add dramatic emphasis, it shows the translator's own investment in the story. <<less

Thanks to the translator for the good job..

Abt the story.... it's quite intresting.. BUT... as the story flow..i lost intrested..

Nothing special abt FL..

she's 'just-another-hypocrite-MARY'SUE-character', who time-traveler-> processing -> so-called-trash-young-miss-body -> marrying 'just-oh-too-perfect-prince'...

As a time-traveler.. suppose she shouldn't sniffing around and just mind her own business.. since she's not the 'real' YunXi anyway.. heh (΄◞ิ౪◟ิ‵)

Finally I decide to dropped this...........

One of my first and favourite web novels. This web novel is the reason why I started to read more. I absolutely recommend this novel for anyone who is seeking a refreshing transmigration romance book. I really enjoy the slow pace romance between the FML and ML and how the relationship affects both of their characters throughout the novel. This story is long (1375 chapters) however it is worth it because you can see the development and romance between the two characters.

Thank you RUYI and team for translating an amazing... more>> story!! <<less

This is a really good novel. One of the best out there. It doesn't get you away from all the drama. But once you start reading, it gets you hooked and spend nights reading it just to catch up with the translation. There are no cultivation levels. The MC does have a cheat but it's not helpful at all times. Don't Bet with her. She has an all time winning streak. Hehe

The 1st hundred or so chapters was really unbearable/painful to read. It made you want to transmigrate and get... more>> her (MC) the hell out of the estate. I didn't like how the FL was treated, it made me cry a river but also love and appreciate HYX more. It gets better after that though so cheers for HYX. I hate but at the same time love how that Ice Cube didn't melt after a few chapters. The fluff makes you melt, it was worth the wait. Don't judge this novel after only reading 30 or so chapters. This has more than 1000 chapters so the first part is more on taking out cannon fodders. <<less

I'm totally digging this novel.

Sure, the romance is really slow BUT when it comes... Oh boy, so much grinning that my cheeks hurt. IT'S SO SWEET AND ADORABLE.

I think HYX is likable and awesome, she's smart too.

... more>>

I don't have any issues that she helps/cures her enemies and such things. I mean sure, they bully her and yet she helps them, stupid much? Although that may be true, she also bullies them back in her own ways. Just because they're bullies doesn't mean she MUST be ruthless and not cure them at all. Some things are better left dead than alive. She has her own ways. Plus, not everyone is perfect.


LFY is soooo adorable when he's with HYX. (When the romance comes)


If LFY didn't exist then I would totally ship HYX with GBY. God, that guy is so sweet and adorable, he's such a likable guy. He's protecting HYX in shadows. There is no way you cannot like him. Nope, you either like him or love him. He's not far away from being equal as LFY (I'm not talking about strength). My heart ache when I know there's no way for him to be with HYX. BUT STILL, he's like my best second male lead ever.

To be honest I don't get people who don't like GQS. Sure, he had hurt people who are important to HYX. But he's probably jelly af. He's definitely jealous towards LFY because of HYX, that's why he hates him. But it is such a shame that he has come too late because HYX loves LFY. But even if there's no LYF, there's GBY... GQS is soo pitiful, I pity him so much. I really like him.



Who knows, you might actually come to like it. It won't hurt you from trying to read it. I, myself, recommend the novel. <<less

Well... This novel has been on the top of my list ever since I started reading! ~

I like how MC isn't too overpowered or too much of a damsel in distress. ML didn't fall in love to her so quickly. Although a little slow sailing in romance, their interaction complements with each other.

What irked me though is the villains, especially the btches, theyre too stubborn, and I believe theres alot of them in the future chapters...

This is a very VERY nice novel, though, the villains... really... I've never been so... more>> mad at a fictional characters... still, MC, ML and other nice characters made up for my frustrations so its still on my top books to read ~

I recommend reading this for those who like/love historical, transmigration romance stories, you might not like ML at first for his coldness but really, he's very nice!! He didn't disappoint this reader!! <<less

Just love this story!!!! Although it's a typical reincarnation story in the beginning BUT!!!

... more>> - side male characters are lovable and honestly I like them. GB and GQ I luv u guys ❤️💜💛💚

- side female characters (likes ML) are nice 😶.... OBVIOUSLY IM LYING!!! There as annoying as they can get 😒

- there's an actual plot and not the routine cycle of 'bad guy plots against the MC AND she defeats them'. Well... that happen too but there's an actual back story. Like $:is&7bf5;ju^st€*#!|*<

hahaha in not spoiling anything 😂😂😂 I'll give you a slight taste without spoiling. Well there are ppl poisoning ppl for who knows wat reason and many question about ppls background (as in family ties). OK!!! That's enough! I'm borderline almost spoiling 😂😂😂

but ur most of all

I've already written a full review on this on my Wordpress account! However, now that I've made an account in NU, I still feel like I should still write something here.

I definitely love this novel! If not for her abnormal detox system, the MC here isn't OP. She lacked martial arts. She's not some reincarnated genius assassin, but was once only a doctor. There are no initial revenge-revenge, shoot the heavens whatever plots here. She is still definitely human. (Only her detox system is abnormal lol Still can't get over... more>> it! It's the only thing I'm not convinced in this novel!)

Anyway, ahem ahem, the detox aside, there are still a lot of things to love about PGC. I love the characters, the character growth, the universe, and the damn ML! HAHAHA That ice-cube man. I think, in all of the cold heartless MLs a lot of authors are trying to portray, no one could get as close to the genuine cold ML as this one! But! He may be cold, yeah, but for me, because of this coldness, he is the one with the cutest development! XDD

PGC has a really slow development, yes, and a lot of overbearing characters along the way. So one might be easily discouraged with that, and I don't blame you! I think it even break the record for me for having the most annoying characters! If not for MC, I would've dropped it too. The saving grace for me on this one is definitely the lead. Despite all the troubles and the chaotic world thrown at her, she was able to beat them with her wit, courage, and willpower! Being one originally born in the modern world, she even sympathised with the readers with how unbearable and illogical these 'ancient characters' are! HAHAHA

Note that YunXi, the MC, doesn't have powerful backups. So she was forced to suffer everything at the start, and had even resigned herself to believe only in herself and her capabilities to save herself. While her detox system might be OP, the circumstances of MC doesn't make her OP. Time and time, she gets doubted. Time and time, she has to prove herself. It takes a while before she gets recognition, born from her genuine efforts ofc. Yes, she had a strong ML! But what use is his strength when he's as cold as ice? ML knew more than anyone the rules of the jungle, knew that if MC had to survive, she had to learn how to defend herself. And learning to defend herself she did! And she earns my respect for it.

So, even with the slow development, as long as there IS development, I don't mind it so long as something valuable could be gotten from it. And for me, PGC did not disappoint in this aspect (at least up until this chapter. I am enthusiastically waiting the exciting things to come, and so will not comment and try to remain unbiased as I've not read them yet).

The writer here is a good writer, and the translators nothing less! So my reading experience for PGC was really great. They were able to profoundly describe the characters, explicitly or not, and detail development that is neither rushed nor very slow. The characters' reactions and movements were true to their character, logical and realistic, albeit some of them hateful. There were none too OP characters, and their strength were borderline believable, unlike some reincarnated plots out there with authors stacking every epithets they could think of on their leads.

I hint a lot of mysteries lurk around the corner, and eagerly await for them to be exposed. But right now, PGC is a thrilling ride that one cannot miss. If you're in to transmigrated plots with too OP characters, brace yourselves since PGC isn't one like that. And if you're one on the masochistic side looking for persecuted MCs, this one isn't one either... hn, maybe only at the start? lol!

Anyhow, for me, PGC just nicely smacked right there in the middle. The leads are loveable that, as mentioned, even with the unfortunate circumstances and detestable side insect- I mean characters, I lauded them for the actions they took next to fight it. I guess I should laud author for this! XDD

Right now, with Kenkyo and HBAG, unless some unforeseen circumstances later on made me change my mind, this one easily tops on my list. <<less

Rating this 2... For now. I might change it later.

I have some very high expectations for rebirths/transmigration novels like this one, especially ones with medicine /poison tag since I work in the medical field and what's the first thing a poison expert do? She treats Staphylococcus (a bacteria) as poison... And even claimed that the ancients use it to disfigure the face. Sure it can cause the wound to be infected but there are worse bacteria that can cause a wound to be infected and even rot,... more>> disfiguring the face (how they're sure it was caused by Staphylococcus I'm not sure) but that's just me being uptight... And an ass. I actually applaud the author for getting the grape-like appearance right. I can let it pass, I came here to enjoy the novel, not read a medical book...

The reason I gave this a 2 (for now) is because I am ve~~ry irritated with the characters... Except for the female MC, the poisoned general and that imperial physician who helped her, every single one of them is irritating and mostly stupid. But I have high hopes for the male MC, for now I hate you.

I'm putting this novel aside for now, maybe wait a hundred chapters more then binge read. I hope it gets better. *fingers crossed* <<less

Although I like this novel quite a lot for the action, it really should have been named "Long Feiye Is Crap At Communication". One empathizes easily with the MC, but frankly I just want to slap this guy. He keeps suspecting her of cheating on him and not even trying to explain himself, and she keeps forgiving him after awhile and slipping back into getting along well together, despite never having had an actual adult conversation where they sit down and work things out.
