She is the Crown Prince’s fiancee, but on the night of their wedding, an edict was made and she was given off to marry the crippled and paralyzed God of War.

On their wedding night, the paralyzed groom pressed her under his body: “Do you want this prince to kill you or poison you?” Lin Chujiu is a famous surgeon so she wouldn’t feel threatened that easily. She turned and pressed the crippled man under her body: “Say, do you want me to completely waste your legs or waste your third leg?”

She is a genius surgeon doctor in Modern Era that was transmigrated into the body of the Eldest Miss of Lin Family.

He is a famous prince that named as the God of War and was feared by many.

“I, Lin Chujiu, am not a good woman. I do not know how to write melodramatic words.”

“I am in love with you and willing to do anything for you. I will bear the blame of our country or even help you seize the vast territory of our motherland…”

“I hate you, I am willing to pull out your heart, take out your bones and after you lose your life I will destroy this picturesque country…”

Okay.

The plot is very very interesting, if you like the genre of a reincarnation doctor, once you read the first chapters, you are hooked, absolutely.

The main character is pretty good, the previous life of the girl is pretty sad: she was an immigrant orphan and became a spy in another country. Now she is, as the synopsis said, the daughter of the prime minister that had her previous engagement with the crown prince cancelled and is going to marry the brother of the Emperor that has become crippled (can't... more>> walk anymore) 3 months ago. She has the will to live, and that is what drives her existence, she is also "forced" to help and cure people with illnesses due to a "hospital system" that was implanted in her body and that followed her in this second life.

The Male Lead. Okay....... let's say it like this. I read so many novels of this genre that I can't even count, and compared to other male lead that are in a wheelchair that feign to be useless and wait only for the main character to cure them ad then fall in love with them with their cunningness and shamelessness, it's a little different. Because of this, the plot is interesting and refreshing, rich of novelties.

BUT. I HATE THE MALE LEAD. I can't even count all the times I cursed due to the male lead's misunderstanding of the main character, I hated how all the other people thought that it was natural for the female lead to always bow to the male lead like she is due to suffer all the injustices of the world and cannot say no. Don't get me wrong, he is also my kind of favourite male lead, cynical, cold on the surface, brutal with others and himself, prideful..... but PLEASE!! This is too much, I understand the female character, I understand her difficulties and I also like how we are showed her weaknesses, different from other novels where the female character is OP and without any weak spot.

Spoiler

like when we understand step by step that she starts to like the male lead.. how sad she feel for his distrust, her hopelessness

[collapse]

Every single time I read about the unhappy things happened to the female character... every time I read about her hopelessness....I wanted to stab at the male lead, and this kind of thing never happened really. Especially in this type of novels where normally you would love the male character.

Anyway, I wrote this review just to complain about that stupid, dense, handsome and prideful male lead and in sympathy of the female character, that is a real person, with strengths and weaknesses, a woman that can fall in love and also feel loneliness and hopelessness.

I really do not want to give 5 star as for me reading is about being happy and having to curse every time at the male character's stubbornness was very stressing, but I have to admit that it is written pretty well, the plot is interesting and complex, the palace intrigues, the politics of that world.. all deserves a 5 star here.
So, unwillingly, I give 5 points, but really, male character, BEHAVE BETTER in your next life, please. <<less

Read some parts of the raws.

It's a slow romance in this novel. There are many character in it, and a lot of scheming is involved. I do like how crafty the female MC is. The male lead is ruthless, but in the later chapters, the readers can tell he is caring for a more and more, but very slowly. I'm looking forward to the translation, as reading the raws takes too much effort.

I wasn't sure how the romance was going to be with all the misunderstandings, the mistrust and the miscommunication, but it was worth to keep reading on. It's interesting how the author want to pass on the idea that their relationship is not a straight line. It's something that they build with time and that arguments, failures and mistakes could make them understand each other better when they opened up in the end.

Another thing I like about this novel is the independant main character. She doesn't relied on the... more>> male lead to go through storm. In fact, male lead is... That will be spoiler if I write. Well, I can say that right now, I'm at the chapter where male lead is away and she's kicking ass solving one crisis after another while doing letter exchange with male lead.

I'm giving a 4 because male lead is pissing me off at times. This is just personal opinion by the way. <<less

I've binge read this novel and as of this chapter, I regret doing so. This must be one of the harshest review and nitpicks i'll give. I'll just finish this arc and drop this novel altogether. tl;dr: Its a novel that will get you disappointed a lot of times more than it will give satisfaction. If you're into that then feel free.
Spoiler

Plot 2/5 - A popular theme with Chinese novels and girl protagonist, nothing new.

    • Reincarnation / travel to the past
    • Female protag is a doctor and has awesome life saving skills
    • terrible family
    • Cold male lead
    • etc.

A mash up of various cliches molded into a novel called Princess Medical Doctor.

Characters 2/5

Female lead - Portrayed as an independent individual that falls for the cold protag. Typical. Knows a lot of stuff. Typical. Typical. Typical. You can pretty much says shes likeable and tolerable. 3/5 for her

Male lead - Portrayed as one with disability. Typical. Cold. Typical. Stupid in relationships. Typical. Also portrayed as someone strong and powerful and always in control. Meh. 2/5

Supporting Characters -

Can be classified into three:

Allies that have some brain

Stupid people that are considered as ally

Scheming Enemies.

Typical. Theres no depth or two-faces or any backstabbing or a plot-twist that is so good as of 125 chapters.

Character

growth -

There is? Well hot-dawg. As far as I've seen (Aside from some slow romance slowly coming [the pacing is kinda retarded by the way but who am I to judge; its an opinion. Don't bite.]) theres little to none. Yup yup. Female lead slowly falls for ML, Aaaand then ML fails to live up to expectation. ML likes FL buuuut heeees prideful. Servants are uhm again either stupid or has some brain. Does their attitude toward FL change? Yes. With depth? If you consider simple admiration as a depth then oh boy. OH BOY.

Writing 1/5 -

The icing on the cake on this novel is its author and how he downplays every sh*t the female lead goes through. Im not sure but I think in this novel, nearly dying and being untrusted isn't as big of a deal as it should have been. The author also shows how to properly deal with drama. Time lapse. The only regret that I have aside from the fact that the Female Lead can't get away from the Male lead is that I've read this novel.

PS: Get ready for Forced Drama as well if you're reading this

A review in partial defense of the Male Lead

This is as realistic a time travelling reincarnation in a world of magical-like martial arts, comes. At least it's the most realistic I've seen so far. Some of the spoilers will be pretty heavy and detailed, so be aware when you open them, they are meant to illustrate what I say just before them in more detail, so there should be no need to read them (hopefully if I did it right).

When I say "realistic" I'm not talking about the plots, which... more>> are classics of the genre (but not actually as ridiculously impossible to believe as these things sometimes get)
Spoiler

sister wants to steal her sisters husband (twice), doctor of remarkable skill (not omnipotent though) meets crippled prince, attempted poisoning/wounding/crippling/murdering of characters, framings etc.

[collapse]

I am talking about the actions and reactions of the characters, in particular the male lead (because he's been getting a lot of flak by other reviewers lately, and I would hate for people to not read this story, which I quite enjoy, because of that). So this is a review in partial defence of the male lead.

The male lead is Prince Xiao Tianyao, the current Emperor's younger brother (I haven't seen his age, but because of this I imagine he's a little older than our average ML, hovering closer to 30 than 20, I could be wrong. For reference the FL is 18 when they marry). He's been in a secret war with the Emperor forever, not because he wants to be the Emperor himself, but because he was favoured by their father, and now by the people (as a great protector general, with a wondrous and powerful army). However his status took a fall after the last war, when he returned with essentially crippled legs (due to his elder brothers schemes), and the emperor took his military power away as a result. That's when, not content with the previous humiliation the Emperor bestows a wife upon him: Lin Chujiu. A woman originally betrothed and rejected by the Crown Prince (aka Xiao Tianyao's nephew), known to be crude and rash and careless in words and action. So he's furious, and hates her before they even meet (well duh).

But then he does meet her. And it turns out she's not like the rumours or the reports of the people he had investigate her. She's smart, doesn't know everything, but can still read the situation, keeps her head in tense and dangerous situations, has medical knowledge and tools that come out of nowhere, and saves people none of which are truly on her side.
Spoiler

They get attacked by assassins on their wedding night just as Xiao Tianyao is threatening to kill her (for being a humiliating pawn in the Emperor's scheme), and instead of hiding and screaming for help or fainting, as one would expect a regular spoiled and sheltered girl to be, she walks around cool as a cucumber giving first aide to allies and enemies alike (allies who aren't actually her allies, since they are his men and he intended to kill her) and eventually uses a powder in self-defense that puts everyone to sleep (exept Xiao Tianyao who has built a kind of immunity against poisons and sedatives).

[collapse]

As readers we get more of her point of view and very little detail on his, so we know why she's doing these things which look like they go against common sense, but he doesn't and it makes for one hell of a suspicious first impression. Mainly because of the contradiction between who his investigation says she is, and the way she is in front of him, which makes him wonder what is real and what is not. She loved the Crown Prince, so maybe she was asked by him to spy on Xiao Tianyao. She's the daughter of Prime Minister Lin, who climbed up from the lowest ranks, can't do that if you're not a good schemer able to fool the world. Is the Prime minister really oblivious to her skills or did she learn her tricks from him? She has a good relationship (ostensibly anyway) with the empress thanks to her birth-mother... All of these people are grade A scheemers, and none of them are on Xiao Tianyao's side, and they are all linked to the Emperor. Add to that a whole lot of other small things that crop up and make her more mysterious, despite how good he is at discovering secrets, and despite seeing when she's lying he can't figure out the truth.
Spoiler

She's aware she's being watched by his highly skilled secret guards despite not having any fighting ability herself, she apparently can predict when her room will be searched (he has her medical box stolen several times to try and see her strange tools upclose, but the only thing in there is a note addressed to him every time, and the tools are nowhere to be found), and he knows there's a lie somewhere about her explanation on how she got her medical knowledge and tools but as he can't find a trace of the truth he can't disprove her either (her master was a kind but secretive man who never told her his name but saw how she was truly treated in the Lin household and decided to help her by sneaking into her courtyard at night to teach her his skills... really?). Again as readers we get to know how and why she does all this, but Xiao Tianyao literally doesn't have a clue.

[collapse]

Suspicious, suspicious, suspicious. Nothing but suspicions everywhere. And Xiao Tianyao is a grade A scheemer himself. He's not a good guy, and his schemes are as evil as that of his enemies
Spoiler

amongst other things, he leaks information to the enemy country so that they will start a war to force the Emperor to return his military power

[collapse]
. In the environment he grew up and still lives in, he's never been able to afford to trust anyone even the least bit suspicious, and with that many ties to his greatest enemy? He'd have to be dumb. Which he's not, he's smart, but also very aware that he's not infallible. Unlike some other male leads of the genre who are never in real trouble. Even when they seem to be, it turns out they were aware and controlling the situation the whole time. This is not the case with Xiao Tianyao (it's close, really close, he tries and wants to be that guy, but small miscalculations appear often with devastating consequences, especially for Lin Chujiu).

And although Lin Chujiu helps him and his people on several occasions, and she goes out of her way to support him, none of her suspicious traits are ever cleared or explained. So when she finally does act in a way that seems to go against his interests
Spoiler

She interrupts the treatment of his legs by the divine doctor he's been looking for and has had thoroughly vetted since before he knew her, making his recovery even less likely

[collapse]
, instead of trusting her based on the 3 months (I think that's how long, maybe a bit more) of good will she's shown, he instead believes she may finally have shown her true colours and treats her terribly and I mean TERRIBLY. And this is when a lot of readers lose all faith in him. The fact that it's not the last time he uses her and puts her in danger
Spoiler

his next brilliant idea is to use her as bait to get rid of the assassin that has been hounding him since the wedding, without telling her, which leads to her almost dying

[collapse]
doesn't help his case, I know.

But honestly his reactions seem a lot more genuine and realistic than if he trusted her and told her everything despite knowing that she's hiding a lot of things. His treatment of her and the way he kind of takes her for granted, controls her life and freedom, is also quite realistic for the time, if completely unacceptable from a 21st century perspective. Women, especially noble women, in ancient China (and most of the world really) were entirely dependent on the men in their lives (otherwise why would they ever fight and scheme so hard against each other to gain and keep favor?), so again realism, in a genre usually lacking in it (I love it anyway, but it's nice to find something a little different).

Same goes with the female lead's reactions and character, she's a remarkable surgeon, but she's no expert in every field of medicine, and the second it's not about surgery she's highly dependent on the device that followed her in death to make diagnoses, which makes her way less OP than the FL's I usually read about. I love that she's smart and savvy and tries to make the best of her situation, but is also lost and vulnerable in this unfamiliar time and space. I love that she doesn't let go of her modern day values even though it might make her life easier. And once he goes overboard, she values herself, and refuses to give in to his attempts at controlling her (it's just unfortunate that she lacks the support to do this successfully). And what I love most, is that she doesn't love him (I mean there's a short time at the beginning where she admires him that could have grown into more, but he blew that), and even if he does start to do things for her, she'll thank him, but she doesn't forget all the hurt that came before and she has no intention of forgetting and letting herself feel more deeply for him ever again. If she'd been the kind of MC to hopelessly fall back into his arms at the slightest sign of gaining his favour I would have stopped reading, but she didn't (I think it's been more than 50 chapters so far, with no sign of her changing her mind in the slightest). This is why I like this story and why I would recommend reading it, because it's good despite the fact that it's very hard to like the male lead.

As things stand (not even 1/4th of the story through) I don't think Lin Chujiu should be with Xiao Tianyao, which is why this review is only a partial defence of the ML, I understand where he's coming from, I even applaud the author for making his actions realistic to the point that he's hateful to any reader supporting the FL, but as a modern person she could never be happy with him as he is, and should never accept such treatment. I am happy that she has no intention of being with him at this time, and is looking for a way to live peacefully away from him. In fact I'm thrilled that she has shown no signs of falling back into his arms. I'm annoyed, like everyone else, that he doesn't care what she wants and is sticking to her anyway, though his actions can be cute in a Neanderthal sort of way (always fun in theory never to actually be with), and the way his people try to help him is funny. And why wouldn't they be on his side, their lives depend on his good will, so obviously they will help his goals and not hers even if they do love her. Not to mention most of them are servants, and aren't aware of the horrible ways he's used her or treated her, they only really witness his positive actions toward her, like taking care of her and being worried when she's been hurt (all his fault, but they don't know that) and the way he keeps her somewhat confined to their home, which again is perfectly normal for the times (though he does it out of suspicion, not tradition, something they don't know). Those who are in the know are his closest subordinates and are just as suspicious about her as he is. Again a realistic reaction from the characters.

I really want to see if the author can maintain those realistic reactions throughout, can they actually redeem him in the eyes of Lin Chujiu and the readers? Maybe this will be one of those bitter sweet endings Chinese stories are good at, where neither of them quite gets the perfect ending. More of a "peaceful ever after" than "happy ever after".

So if you are tempted to read this, but the reviews are making you hesitate, go ahead and read. And by all means rage about the ML and love the FL, nothing wrong with that. After all, isn't it great when a story can make you feel strongly both positive and negative emotions? <<less

If you crave a Doc!MC that isnt as godly as 'Divine Doctor: Daughter of the First Wife' in terms of cheat abilities then this is the fic to read. MC is seriously admirable in personality and ability, she really tries her very best to fight against the bad situations (aka. Drama) thrust on her. The translator is doing a great job with this story. There's so many good things about her but there is just one thing I seriously hate about this story. That is the ML.

#RANT WARNING

I've read a... more>> lot of infuriating characters before, like a lot, but omfg I cannot stand the ML. This dude takes the cake for being 'over bearing' to a different plane of existance. Every single character in this is scared of him, not just because of his ability but also his temper. Honestly, the things he does if done by someone without his appearance he would be deemed creepy, manipulative, abusive etc. From the moment ML
Spoiler

didnt trust the MC who already went beyond to get him to tolorate her and trusted a 'divine doctor' out of despararion to heal his legs when MC was falsely accused.

[collapse]
my opinion of him just went downhill.... as the story progressed (to where I am rn) he doesnt even feel apologetic and has the gal to feel wronged and that the MC must care for him.

I get that he is a general hated by his own emperor and is suspicious by nature and be rational/practical but jfc he is so freaking unlikable. Rather that calling it romance between MC & ML it's more like "let see how long her mental strength can last until she's pretty much nothing more than a robot to do what the ML wants her to do". Like the dude wont even giver her space to get to terms of what he did to her. Like even if every single pore of her body says for him to stay away he wont and forces her to always stay with him. She cant even do anything about it because ML will kill her- she doesnt even have any support from her family and the one friendly relative she has cant help her. She is alone and doesnt have anyone on her side. Because all the helpers/maids she has by her follow the ML to the death. Rather than thinking of her situation/feelings, like
Spoiler

when she ran from ML cuz she couldnt stand him (for a good reason)

[collapse]
, they only thought of how 'sad' the ML was without her and keep trying to reconcile them.
Spoiler

even went behind MC's back to appease the ML by using her name to 'cheer him up'

[collapse]

I adore this MC but because of ML I cant enjoy her story anymore. <<less

Although this is your typical transmigration story, it does progress nicely and each chapter is interesting! I can't say much about world building at this point, but characters' development is pretty good. The first chapter/opening will definitely hook you. The plot so far is only being introduced so I can't say much except that I like it and hope to continue to do so. I will update my review as I continue to read! If you like Poison Genius Consort, you will like this.

Spoiler

Both heroine's have access to a medical system. The only differences are that while PGC MC can only detect and treat poisons and it is up to her whom she will treat, the PMD MC can detect all medical issues and once detected she must treat the ill person regardless of whom they are - at least that's what I understood from the last chapter I read.

[collapse]

Also, although the translator is not a native speaker of English/Chinese, the translations are very coherent. I didn't know the translator was not a native speaker until I read the About section on the blog. The translated chapters are released almost daily, which I really like! <<less

PRO: the main characters have their personality, to this most readers find the ML is super annoying. But to me, this is more realistic, if XTY--the god of war who had been very hard to absolutely everyone (including himself) suddenly got smitten, head over heels shamelessly affectionate towards FL in 30 or so chapters... well, I cant blame if some people really want to read romance that leads to their diabetic worsening due to all the fluff and sweet honeyed scenes. In my case, I like it when ML and... more>> FL point of views are shown, not told to us reader.

CON: Most of the side characters' personalities are not very developed--just plain single minded accessories, not much different from other light novel. Other thing makes this novel doesnt get more stars is simply the translation is way too slow. But hey, those translator are doing it for fun. it's already great someone doing it for free to us readers anyway. so Keep the good work, translator/s!! <<less

The quality of the translation affects the story telling, its not unreadable, but its very rough. That being said, thank you translators for putting in the effort, it is appreciated.

The story itself... Well, as others have stated, the male lead in this series is awful. I honestly can't even imagine a woman falling for a man who is this vile to her, specifically coming from a future where women have more rights and responsibilities. Obviously, it is early in the story, so hopefully he will come to have some kind... more>> of redeeming quality.

The female lead.. Is a very shallow Mary Sue with a deus ex machina device attached to her soul. As you read she will at times come across as tough as nails and then magically become as solid as wet toilet paper. From chapter to chapter you are left scratching your head at which version of the character will be written next.

The supporting cast are all card board cut outs that have no depth. Usually put in a scene to either make the ML or FL seem strong and or weak.

At times, I really want to like this story, but overall, it's just coming out as something that is frustrating to read. Flip and coin and chance it I guess. <<less

Objectively, this is a guilty pleasure. It has the two main defects: the male lead and the female lead's cheat. The male is cold, beautiful without compare (of course), overbearing and is quite confused about the female lead.

One moment he is pleasantly surprised about how pleasantly "different" she is in comparison with other women, but the next moment he treats her badly. Why? Because he is unable to treat people in a decent way but at same time he expects her to feel grateful for the little attention he concedes... more>> her. I guess in future chapters he will redeem himself when he will madly fall in love with her, but, for now, he is unbearable. Then we have the very creative MC's cheat: a system which alerts her if there are sick people nearby and forces her to cure them otherwise the system will make her suffer or kill her eventually. It is clearly only a plot device to create "original" situations, and it annoys me how it stretches my sympathy for an author who goes miles away to elaborate a shred of plot.

Ignoring this two issues, I keep reading mainly because I like transmigrated story. At least, the female lead tries to keep her dignity refusing to bend to the difficult ML's personality and I hope she will not easily fall in love with him. It does not hurt that chapters are very short and the translation is not bad. <<less

This really is one of my favorites so far as it's similar to but slightly different from the other "reincarnated into a badass" novels. I was initially annoyed at this all-powerful medical system that never seemed to run out of anything, but it wasn't too bad for an OP cheat as the author was really true to the medical theme. The only equipment the MC could take out were really only those used in hospitals (save 1 instance but I was reading raws so it might have been my misunderstanding).... more>>

What I like the most, though, was the transition in feelings between the male and female leads. Like RannSy said, the male lead wins the award for most Mulish because he just refused to apologize or accept himself as wrong in any way. But it was perfectly in line with his character- he didn't just jump into being smitten, we can see him slowly go from thinking of her as his property, to wanting her to prove herself worthy to stand beside him, to wanting her to like him, to wanting her to be happy no matter what. I also really liked the female lead's response to the male lead's actions. She'd fall for him time and time again (really only 2 or 3 times), and then get hurt time and time again (also only 2 or 3 times). Until she finally gets fed up and decides not to bother with emotions anymore.

In fact, I think the author should have dragged out the ML wooing the MC more- she did a great job showing the depth of the MC's hurt but dropped the ball on showing how she healed. There were so many plot points planted earlier that the author never used, like
Spoiler

Meng Xiuyuan (may be translated differently), the s*xy young scholar whose throat she healed. Or even the fact that she had the central empire prince prepare an identity for her in the central empire for if she decided to leave the prince. Would have LOVED to see the MC just up and leave, and the ML having to chase after her. But, nope, the author just planted these expectations in my head then never delivered.

Which brings me to my biggest complaint... the end of the novel felt rushed. Honestly, when it got to chapter 920 or so, I imagined there would be several hundred chapters left, only to realize there were less than 100. Don't get me wrong, 1000 chapters is A LOT. But not enough to wrap up the story when we just barely scratched the surface of who the male lead was, and the female lead was clearly still hurt, and they still had enemies left and right. In the end, the problems were resolved, but it was all so fast and convenient, it left a sour taste in my mouth.

Either way, it was still an enjoyable read.

TL; DR: It's gonna be a long, frustrating, and enjoyable ride. And you WILL want to choke the male lead. Several times. <<less

The chapter is so short, too short for convenient reading. The writing, dialog and translating is confusing. The only good thing in this novel is the overall story and premises. I wouldn't reccomend it. If you like this kind of story just read Genius Doctor Black Belly Miss

i think it was as real as it can be for a fiction story ^^

An old (sorry male lead) virgin bachelor that spent his days in and out at military should not now how to sprout sweet-honeyed word, chasing MC all days long. But I really feel hurt for MC, she's being treated as a normal woman in those ancient era should be treated.

The non-logical and not-almighty system is there to push the story. So other MC got this super awesome system to detect the poison, came out with perfect... more>> antidote solutions, and free space storage, but not this flawed system that miraculously transmigrated with MC. Despite the fact that MC is not beating bad guy left and right with her powerful cultivation, she is strong enough, brave, and smart enough to not become your standard Mary Sue that only rely on her hubby.

Overall it's a good story for one who seek a realism story in ancient era. <<less

The only thing I hate about this novel is the Male Lead, how can you continue reading a novel if you dont like the male lead? I just dont understand him. I dont know how can the female lead like that kind of man, I'll be more satisfied if she comes to like someone else. It's just the start of the story but it's annoying already.

Same as PGC where MC are transmigrated with op medical futuristic tech to the ancient ages. With the same hypocritical cliche "doctor should save all patient" kind of stuff.

What does all these authors think their MC should be? A living budha or florence nightingale?

BUT ML in PGC alot better than ML in this novel. At least in PGC, ML doesnt wanna kill the MC. While ML in this novel successfully killed the previous owner of the MC body. (A certain chapter describe how ML subordinate kill the MC by ML... more>> order but assumed that she miraculously survive by fluke). For those readers who support the ML, thats the bitter fact u cant deny and must admit.

Also some scene are kinda irrational to accept. For example: when MC and male lead in the middle of assasination attempt. They just deeply lost in their chat up the bed after avoiding arrow shots. For real? Don`t they got something todo? Like finishing off all the assasins before talking bullsh*ts in loveydovey mode?

In the end, I think MC is a masochist. Bcoz she fall for the male lead (a completely heartless d*ck).

I dont feel any fluffy, gentle, warmth feeling in this novel. It just feels like reading a S&M novel.

if u lookin for some mind tortures, this novel might be the right ones for u.

if not, stay far far away from this novel.

i dun care if ML gonna redeem his sh*tty acts in future chapters, because for now, what I want is take a bat n hit ML crotch really reaaalllyy hard to end his arrogances.

Thats it!! *Burning this novel in my mind* <<less

Holy damn this is really really really slow romance!! I could say I did not hate the ML as much as one specified novel that would not be name again by me because I truly hate the whole ML beings including his friends and sh*t. Anyway I recommended this novel, I digressed a bit when I read the other comments when I saw they still had misunderstanding, miscommunication and all damn man!! Just what do u expect from her!! Geezz! She really suffered a lot and ML is really a... more>> hateful being for not expressing any his thoughts to FL if only he would!!! Then FL did not hate u as much as she is now!! He is really a prideful person to the point is god damn annoying go f**king die <<less

I think this is one of those novels where I absolutely hated the male lead and I personally felt that he didn't deserve her

... more>>
Spoiler

maybe she would be better off just running off to the central country with a separate identity >_< I understand why she didn't though, it was probably a good choice as well but arrgghh the ML was such a jerk. Misunderstandings are one thing but almost all of their conflicts end with her life in danger

Spoiler

take that time where she noticed a problem with his treatment for example, she ended up with broken ribs and internal bleeding (I might be wrong, it's been a while) and he ditched her in the cold dungeon, alone, without medical help, overnight. SHE ALMOST DIED! He didn't even feel bad about it until like wayyy later when she almost died again.

Or we could talk about that time he used her as bait and she took an arrow to the chest and had to pull it out and operate on herself. Or that time he threw all his responsibilities on her while at war and the enemy commander forced her to eat poisonous food and she almost died AGAIN.

[collapse]

I'm actually surprised she managed to pull through with her horrible health. He probably didn't even remember that her predicted remaining lifespan is only like 3-4 years.

[collapse]

I think the relationship between them is built upon her sacrifices. The more times she risks her lives for him, the more positive feelings he would have for her. Gave it a 4 cuz the MC is honestly a good person even if the man doesn't deserve her... <<less

I couldn't bring myself to continue reading this novel. I like the female lead a lot and the story was just getting intriguing. Initially, the male lead was fine.... but as I read, his domineering attitude was just awful. Started out fine, but doesn't trust her. She constantly gets injured because of him, and still has to force herself to tend to his injuries and wounds. It's like she's a servant rather than a wife. 2 stars because of the rest, -3 because I can't stand the male lead.
