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!

This is my most favorite novel! Han Yunxi is a super smart but not OP MC that while in love with the ML wont let him walk all over her. On the other hand the ML is super possessive but hasn't realized that he is in fact in love. LOL hopefully he realizes while he still has a chance: which brings me to another point, while there are others who are clearly or most likely in love with the MC she doesn't even place them in her sights. She has... more>> eyes only for Long Feiye. This novel has lots of twists and turns and is truly one that deserves many more stars then just 5. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this one. <<less

The main positive side of this novel is its likeable characters. I really like Han Yunxi's personality: she is determined facing head on her hardships without being over confident. Her cheat, a system able to detect poison and produce antidotes, well fits and blands into the story. After waking up in the body of a stranger and being thrown into an unwanted marriage, she quickly adapts trying to live with the new family who despises her. Her initial wish is to live like a "leisurely cloud", in a peaceful and... more>> uneventful trying not to bother anyone. Of course, her wish is short-lived as she attracts misfortune.

The male lead has a plausible attitude: he is also forced into the marriage but instead of mistreating or bullying the female lead, he initially chooses to ignore her while later using her for her poison skills. He is cold and arrogant, so he will take a while to realize how Han Yunxi is more than a tool who will conquer a piece of his heart. The plot is well-paced with varying short arcs and many secondary characters who, more or less, have a proper personality. Finally, I want to praise the translator for her steady good work and the extra effort she puts in preparing nice and funny teasers for the next chapter. <<less

Overall, the plot is great with level headed MC and the iceberg.

The reason why I gave 4 stars only and not 5 stars for this is because I find that MC has too many enemies to the point she can even dare to threaten the emperor which I find it kind of absurd.

This novel is definitely your choice if you like intelligent characters. The female character is cunning and has a natural flair for politics. Male lead is cold but surprisingly romantic on the inside.

Pace of the novel is a little slow and you're in for a hell lot of drama. Seriously.

The only thing I don't like about this novel is the never ending chapters. I love the novel, really, but I would have preferred it to be shorter.

P.s. The original novel is just as good as the translate version, if not,... more>> better! <<less

So I read ahead using the raws and I like the fact that the romance is quite believable, not like most novels where the male lead will have some unexplainable interest in the female lead. He actually takes very long to actually fall for her (Which some people may not like). Their relationship is also not very clear cut because the author writes about the little actions/ progress in the relationship but never clearly states it which makes it seem all the more realistic. I also like the fact that... more>> she sometimes retaliates but is not entirely vicious or without reason, let's say when the Empress Dowager etc all treat her badly, she doesn't randomly poison them just for revenge. But she does teach others a lesson such as the princess (But she eventually healed her anyway).

Also in the earlier chapters, comments were hating on the male lead which reminded me that I also did not like the male lead at first. I have no idea when he grew on me! At this point of the novel where I'm at (Late 100s), he actually likes her [Not explicitly stated but shown - another thing I like about this novel] but has not fully trusted her or come to love her yet. <<less

Love it.... this is one of the best webnovel I have ever read. It has romance, actions, humour, medicine/medical, politic etc. I hate the male lead in the early chapters, but he slowly fell for our FL and when he realized that he loves FL he became completely adoring. He became sweet, protective and treat FL like she's the most special girl in the world and that makes every girls jelly 🤣🤣🤣 enough to want to kill FL.

It's been a while since the las updates...i hope volarenovels wont quit tranlating... more>> this story.. pleasseee.. pleasee pleaseee <<less

I have watched the drama (legend of Yun Zi), finished it (raw only), it doesn't even disappoint me a bit (well the ending confused me a bit, but I haven't read the whole novel). I wanted to read the novel after watching the drama adaptation.

The reviews are a bit off, I might say. When I choose to read something I often read the comments first. But reviews/comments are disappointing. I like the slow progression of the novel, the translator (s) were awesome (2 thumbs up for you). I'm not into... more>> transmigration stories (some of it are pretty lame and repetitive), but the story line and translation is so good I am hooked. Not so many rapey scenes so I can definitely recommend this to my nieces, though I need more lovey dovey stuff with the ML's, but I can deal with it because the author wanted to get the story as close as to normal relationship as possible.

Waiting for more updates..... <<less

1 star for the translation. Ruyi is very dedicated and thorough. She churns out chapters frequently and always keeps readers updated if she's busy. Really easy to read and understand her writing.

1 star for the long chapters. It frustrates me to read novels that has 4 paragraphs for one chapter. What's the point? Nothing happens! This story is different. Lots of things happen in one chapter. Story progresses fast too. Just when you think Han Yunxi is safe and just enjoying her day something abruptly happens then the next adventure... more>> begins. I like how the universe is still expanding with new cities and characters. Love it!

1 star for Han Yunxi. She is not all powerful nor have plenty of cheats. (She has 1 cheat). Besides her poison skills, she is a very normal person which I find refreshing. ML (and other guys) fall for her because of her personality not because of her pretty face or her (awesome) poison skills.

1 star for Long Feiye. He was really hard to root for in the beginning because of his denseness and personality, but I think I started liking him when he started liking Han Yunxi. I like how the author makes him a main character and not just the male love interest so we get to know his inner thoughts and know his reasoning for his actions.

And finally 1 star because it's really fun to read. The characters are complex, each with their own secret motives. Even side characters and villains have motives which we can understand from their pov. <<less

So I have finished reading until the latest chapter and I must say... this novel does not live up to my expectations.

It started out really great, but as the story progressed it became kind of dragged out and all over the place... I felt like the story lost the exciting feel at the beginning.

I think what I dislike most is the unrealism. I mean, even after being married for so long, how can they still not do it, and the MC justified it because they are married only "in name".... more>> That is not how arranged marriages work, in the past or even now.

The romance progresses extremely slow. If you hate turtle-speed romance, skip this novel. <<less

I just want to start off by saying that this is my favorite novel. It's a shame that some individuals gave this a low rating either because of the ML's treatment towards the FL or because they only read the first 100 or so chapters. Sure, he treated her terribly and just downright didn't care for her at first but if you are patient and continue to read, our lovely ice block melts and he will melt you along with him.

Anyways, let's get down to the story. It's definitely got... more>> a bit of everything from action to romance to drama and even a little mystery. We get to follow along as our FL Han Yunxi treats poisons, uncovers mysteries, solves mysteries and falls in love with the literally and figuratively coolest ML ever Long Feiye. Like I mentioned earlier, this is my favorite story not just because of the plot but because of the character development. Not only do we get character development from our two leads, we also get some from our secondary characters and that is something that I always enjoy reading in a novel. So, if you are looking for a novel that always has something exciting going on with steady character development I would recommend you to read this. As a bonus you get to read what I believe to be one of the best romances, if not the best romance, in the Chinese novel universe. Happy reading! <<less

Oops meant to give it 3 stars but it won't let me change it. Anyway..

This novel is yet another modern genius doctor female lead arriving in the body of some unfortunate young miss in ancient times about to be married to some ice statue male lead.

What sets this apart from the other similar novels, at least a little bit anyway, is how unreasonable all the female lead's opponents are. They're ridiculously vicious and cruel, but not very subtle or intelligent about it.

... more>>

she happens across someone injured, sees that he's poisoned and tries to help. She ends up a suspect.. No.. The ONLY suspect and almost EVERYONE is trying to pin this crime to her. This is like the first event in the book. The thing is, it's not just her enemies. The father of the injured person also instantly believes she was the assassin, regardless of the fact she's extremely high up in the social hierarchy due to her marriage. She's whipped and tortured, thrown in jail all with no evidence. Now, I'm not saying this couldn't be done, but it just felt so ridiculous and almost unbelievable in how it happened.


Every time anything goes wrong, almost everyone instantly blames her, regardless of how ridiculous they sound. Doesn't seem to be any logic involved.

The male lead is the utter definition of the generic ice block stereotype. I'm sure in later chapters he'll have some tragic reason, but he treats her like a servant or worse most of the time.

All in all, it just doesn't feel good to read. Her counter attacks to most of these schemes seem incredible weak at times as well, making it even less enjoyable.

5/5 translation and editing work though. <<less

Starts off good, but then gets boring really fast. This dude doesn't care for you at all but you still end up liking him. Why?

... more>>

She was tortured in prison for a day than spent two days more after that one day. Than a few days later she got forced to confined into a shack and starved for multiple days. He didn't come to help until after she got released or forced her way out of the two predicaments. He didn't even try to prevent them or speak to anyone after that. Would you care for someone who doesn't care for you?


edit: 82

i find myself skipping chapters in chunks. Story has progressed boringly and it has just turned terrible. Matters can be soled so easily but she likes to make trouble for herself and there is so much useless dialogue and descriptions that I want to tear my hair out. <<less

YES. FINALLY, a novel with an MC who's not an OP medical genius. FINALLY, an MC who's actually relatable (and has a sense of humor... bonus!). FINALLY, a novel with a semblance of a plot. Not to mention an absolutely amazing translator, who only made the story more enjoyable.

I'd take off stars, however, for the buildup. It starts off slowly and progresses slowly. VERY slowly, though at least not as much compared to some other novels I've read (*cough* SSMD *cough*). It feels like some of the chapters are completely... more>> unnecessary, and sometimes I find myself skimming through the chapters, only half-reading the words on the page. Not a good sign.

Also, I didn't take off any stars for this, but I was a little miffed about the romance. The main lead is literally an arrogant, emotionless prick in the first 200 or so chapters of the novel. Why does Han Yunxi even fall for him? Because of his captivating looks? I think I missed the chemistry here. But then again, this superficial "love" seems to be a recurring theme in a LOT of Chinese novels, so I won't judge this one too harshly.

In a nutshell, if you're the kind of person who can overlook these mistakes for a well-written novel with a kickass heroine, this one's for you. <<less

Average. Not good, but not too bad. It's the type of novel that starts great, but gets worse as chapters go on. Oh, and the teasers are without a doubt a reason why I continue to read this. Great job, translators.


As many other romance chinese novels, the male lead is described as a cold, ruthless god with awespiring emperor aura and handsome looks from heaven EVERY TIME HE APPEARS. The male characters have a bit of depth, but that's it. Any female is a b*tch and if she... more>> meets with the MC, she surely will try to do everything to fck the MC.

Also, no matter how this "god" treats her, she will think "What I was expecting from him?", then one chapter later will have forgotten what he did (or not did), because of course: handsome man can be forgiven no matter what.


From the description she looks pretty cool, but any trouble is mostly waiting for the male characters to help or save her.

Should you give it a chance?

A: As you can see from other reviews, some love it, while some find it average. It is worth to take a quick look. <<less

It's tasteful and interesting. I'm not much for the intrigue or the ideas about "face" their society has. I prefer when honor is a bit more natural and reasonable, while being less about... human ideas and whatever society they ended up with.

Still an amazing series for me. Even though I disregard some of the major concepts and content, the tone kept makes it easily digestible to me.

MC is a smart protagonist. MC isn't entirely formidable, she has her flaws and weakness but she overcomes them with her knowledge (poison, medicine) from her post transmigrate self. I really like her character development, its realistic. I've read other similar stories but most MCs are either too powerful or too revengeful, which makes the story arc too predictable and boring. Don't expect a lot of romance as of ch102, the romance is slow building as its a long novel and theres 1000+ chapters left. Male lead is likeable in... more>> my books, he is the tsundere type– slow and indirect show of affections. Not complaining yet from the lack of romance as storyline is interesting thus far. I've been thoroughly enjoying MC's antics and adventures.

Translations are done really well. (No matter how good the original story is, I will drop it if the eng trans are horrible). Conversation/dialogues are very witty. 5x chapters per week, a fairly good schedule. Chapters are long and adequate in quenching my thirst for more. I hope to see till the end of the entire novel! <<less

Although her inter-dimensional storage space and cooking unit stored in her body seems atypical and out of place to the world she transmigrated into (Like regular ancient china, not a fantasy world). It is a crucial lifesaving detail in a world where poison is a family favorite way of dealing with our poor MC. MC is like a cat. Sure she's smaller than you and easily gets bullied but not without you escaping with bloody scratches and an ear barely hanging on.

Just started reading, but I'm hooked already!

Even though the female lead is stuck in a highly unfavourable situation, she bargains her way through! She's unyielding, fiercly independent, and optimistic--you won't be frustrated with her because she takes matters into her own hands. There seems to be a reason for her transmigration, because her skills as a genius doctor/poison expert is continuously put to use. The translation is also superb! Anyone who likes the novel (GDBBM) 'Genius Doctor: Black Belly Miss' would like this too for the medical element. The story... more>> is a bit more lighthearted than GDBBM. The clever protagonist twists the schemes of others so she's the one with the last laugh. There's some comedy to it and although some scenes seem a tad bit cliche and forced its not bad at all because the author still balances it out with elements of surprise--the story just sucks you in!

Lastly I do think there is some sci-fi element to this. The protagonist has a special skill which gives her

An android-like quality and boosts her medical prowess. It's a special system in her brain that can detect poison, store objects, and even store medical information which basically makes her a super powered medical robot!!


From an outsider's point of view, it would seem like she has some kind of super power but that's really not the case. Anyway, read for yourself!! It's just that good! 10 stars!

This novel is seriously the longest I've ever read!! It already has 612 chapters and I cannot believe it there is still more (not that I'm complaining). What I really like about this book is the female lead is super badass and clever she can save her own ass without dragging the male down, in fact, she's helping the male lead A LOT!! (Honestly, I feel like I've read similar Chinese stories like this numerous times but still love each one just the same <3)

This was one of my favourite novels for the engaging, wide-spanning plot. A poisons doctor transmigrates into the body of a pitiful poisoned-ugly bride on the day the Emperor has maliciously ordered her to marry the royal Duke of Qin.

This is is also the best English translation I've ever seen for a Chinese novel. The original translation is on the Volare Novels website. I've read 580 of 1370 chapters. About 5 chapters are released every single week, - entire, long chapters. I'm really impressed. The plot doesn't lag at all,... more>> it moves along at a fast pace, and the story has long complex arcs.

The story starts with Han Yan Xi fixing her own body, then her new household, then moving on to other parts of the country. Because of the secret backgrounds later revealed, I anticipate that the plot will move to the entire continent.

I like the wuxia elements to the story - the secret martial arts, cults, guards, sects; the political elements - the power plots over the throne; and oddly enough, the financial schemes - the dark markets, gun powder, etc.

Of course, the heroine Han Yan Xi has a fantastical poison computer/space system within her, which is her one cheat/power. She is a bit geeky - she likes studying her poisons, and generally doesn't bother other people. She's not the deepest character (for me, that would be Shen Miao from Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage). She's neither vengeful nor angry. Unfortunately, because of her position as Qin Wangfei (royal Duke of Qin's wife), she gets into all sorts of hairy situations.

There are many interesting men in the story, several with secret identities, and they help the plot move along at a fast pace. Like most male leads in chinese romances, the Duke of Qin is cold, smart, wealthy and very powerful. He also has several very deep secrets. In the first story arc, he's not even in the picture - which gives the heroine a lot of space to develop her own role in the new household and organize things her way. The Duke of Qin and Han Yan Xi's relationship develops slowly over the novel.

Where I would take away half a star is the secondary female characters. Like many other stories, most of the other female characters are jealous, beautiful, vengeful types from powerful families who act like complete brats. The male lead is also the typical cold chinese male interest, however, it seems that there is a

taboo on his body that prevents him from getting hot and steamy
