She was originally a jiangshi that had cultivated for countless years. However, when she attempted to illegally enter the world of the immortals, she was discovered by the Jade Emperor, who threw her into the mortal world. Her soul left her corpse, fusing with the body of the Motian Dynasty’s sixth princess. She didn’t even have the chance to digest her current circumstances, before her maid unexpectedly ignored her mistress, even publicly provoking her!

“What, that weak coward, absolute idiot, who has neither her father’s affections nor mother’s love, and is treated as a maid by her older sister?! The one all the royal princes on the earth unexpectedly loathe?”

“Damn you! This old lady will let all of you understand why the flowers are so red!”

“Hey! Did you hear? That cowardly sixth princess unexpectedly snatched away the man that the eldest princess favored today!”

“How is that interesting news? That fourth princess who always ran amuck in the capital city is now confined to her bed!”

“The good-for-nothing counterattacks! The previously cowardly and incompetent sixth princess suddenly reveals her exceptional talents! Full of glittering elegance, unparalleled disdain!”

She is driven by the desire to shed no more tears! However, if she had known what would happen later, she would be better off acting stupid! She had calculated thousands, tens of thousands of scenarios, but had never calculated one where one day, her own prey would unexpectedly turn around, and ruthlessly bully her instead! Damn it, she still hasn’t sucked any blood yet!

This novel is very interesting.

Basically, the situation is Reversed, with the Female race being the dominant one in the Motian Dynasty. The Dynasty that the MC awoke in is not Patriarchal, but MATRIARCHAL in nature.

This is very interesting since I have only seen a couple of novels out there with the same concept.

The MC is also not those goody-two-shoes kind of MC, nope, not in the least. She's pretty black-bellied and cold. She even killed her supposed fiance because he did something that she didn't like. Well, she didn't know... more>> that the man she killed was her fiance as this happened right after she transmigrated.

The multiple 1-star rating was most likely probably because this is a Matriarchal Novel. And maybe, because they didn't expect the MC to be so ruthless? But yeah, I think those low ratings amounts down to this novel having a Matriarchal System, which directly opposes Ancient Chinese customs (Well, not just Ancient Chinese, I think even now) in having a strictly Patriarchal outlook.

I like the author of this novel, as she/he has the guts to publish something that will contradict the flow of society.

Anyways, this is a good novel so far. I'll leave my rating as a 5 for now, I just hope it continues to be interesting and fun to read, lest I change my rating. <<less

I give this a 5 star review, not because of the current story right now, but the potential I see in it. In all the novels and manga I've read, THIS is the most interesting one yet. There's no bullsh*t cultivation needed really in this or new powers that are even more BS given. It's not even a case of a real reincarnation really. It was more of a case of body possession. What's more, the MC is interesting in her own right.

The plot so far has been a... more>> little cookie cutter. Strong person getting stuck in a new body of a useless dreg of society and completely turning around the situation for them. But that is where I see the similarities end.

Spoiler

The biggest difference in this is the fact that this is a matriarchy which is a very rare setting authors don't really use. It shocked me at first because this is the first I've read of something like this, but in no way does this make the story worse. In fact, to me, it made it even better! It immediately distinguished itself to be different than just a run of the mill reincarnation novel. Although it might feel strange to us readers due to its rarity, it's a fantasy book! The author can do whatever the f**k they want to do with the story and if you don't like it, what are you doing here?

The second difference in this would be the fact that instead of the difference in personality and aura between the original owner of the body and the new soul residing in it being ignored, it's instead magnified in this! Usually, the MC is still mistreated for a while and silently endures the humiliation, but in this, the MC takes no bullsh*t! PERIOD! I can't even explain how satisfying that is to not rage at the absolute BS that is silently enduring and slowly plotting revenge. NO, in this it's a straight forward, "I am a badass now so keep your sh*t to yourself or I will kill you." There's no fluff in the death threats either. Instead of in most novels where they threaten to kill but usually never do it, this MC straight up does it in the next paragraph.


The other difference in this is how the love interests meet and their situations. In the novels I have read, the love interest is usually some unknown character that mysteriously drops from the sky. However, in these novels, it wasn't a matriarchal society. So instead of a strong powerful male companion, we get a more cultured and subdued male lead with the female being dominant. It leads to an interesting set up for their meeting and their relationship.


All in all, this is a nice fresh breath of air that I highly recommend to those of you with open minds to matriarchy settings. If you don't have an open mind, go read something else instead of wasting your time hating on this. My only criticism of this is the fact that it only has 8 chapters.

I honestly don't understand all the 5 star reviews. Did I miss something? To me, this novel is just the usual "black-bellied female MC" story, but executed more poorly than usual.

Before I come off as unfairly critical, please let me explain...

(I will explain in detail from here. I'm going to write a lot, since I don't like to give low ratings or bad reviews without explaining why. If you don't want to read a lot, skip down to the last paragraph for TL;DR.)

... more>> PLOT:

A powerful jiangshi (a corpse monster/vampire) tries to sneak into heaven, is caught by the heavenly emperor, and is forced into the mortal world. The story begins when she wakes up in the body of a weak-willed princess. The country she lives in has reversed gender roles, in which women hold all the power and men are just s*xual objects.

This plot sounds interesting, but then you get to the plot holes...

PLOT HOLES:

  • She wakes up in the body of a princess. What happened to the princess? They never explained if she died or is just possessed or anything.
  • She immediately shows her supernatural powers and vampiric nature to everyone, and NO ONE asks any questions, whether they are servants, friends, or enemies.
  • Women are the ruling class, warriors, and "husbands" in this world. However, for some unexplained reason, all of the men aren't just subservient -- they have extremely weak and "feminine" personalities as well. They fall in love at first sight and cry easily, and are easily beaten up (even though they are strong enough to carry women in other scenes).
  • The old princess was extremely shallow, brown-nosing, weak-willed, and flat out abusive. She let her husband be stabbed and maimed, then threw him into a shed for his wounds to rot. Her servants loathed and disrespected her. All these months/years of hatred and resentment are IMMEDIATELY forgotten in a day. I'm not kidding - as soon as she shows any sort of "strength" or unintentional "kindness", her husband, servant, and other hot males instantly adore and respect her. They crave her attention within 1 chapter, and this is never explained.
  • Despite the author's attempts to limit her power (eg. she gets weak when she uses magic), she is still OP. She can dispatch people with only her killing intent, her wealth is limitless and she easily throws it around (despite being an "out of favor" 6th princess), she can physically maim the most powerful princess in the country in public with zero consequences, she is still inhumanly strong and has vampire teeth, etc etc etc...
  • The main character's personality is extremely inconsistent. She's supposed to be a cold-hearted monster with a killing aura, who lacks knowledge about human emotions or empathy for mortals. However, she immediately decides that a bunch of her servants (who she doesn't even know/remember) are "her people" and will show them warm-hearted concern, kindness, and rushes to exact revenge for them. She's supposed to be someone with incredible willpower who has cultivated for thousands of years, but she gets distracted, yearning, and horny as soon as she sees any hot guy. (Not just the main characters, mind you... she'll be standing up, heart-pounding, and drooling over anyone who is hot or can play music, even if they will be gone within 1 chapter.)
These are just a few of the many inconsistencies within the first 23 chapters.

WRITING:

The writing also isn't particularly good -- the author only knows how to describe how people look, not environments or world-building. The story jumps around without transitions (ex. she does something big, and it skips to the next scene with no explanation about what happened after). The pacing is weirdly too fast (things develop and are resolved too quickly), but also too slow (it feels like the plot has not advanced even after 23 chapters).

I don't think this is an error in translation -- the translation quality isn't that bad (the English isn't perfect, but it's not broken or too distracting). I think it's the novel itself.

TL;DR / RECOMMENDATION:

Overall, I still think that this was a mildly-enjoyable way to waste some time. If you just adopt the mantra "DON'T THINK ABOUT ANYTHING", you'll probably be ok.

If all you want is fluff and some almost-smut (eg. heavy kissing for no reason), you'll get it here. There's lots of descriptions about "faces flushing, " "heart pounding uncontrollably, " etc, even if the reasons behind the lust make no logical sense.

Also, if you're looking for a ruthless female MC who is very bloodthirsty, doesn't bother to pretend that she's weak (or normal, or human), is directly violent, and makes strangers pee themselves, this MC will do that. <<less

I love the main character she is so cool, but also quite kind to her husband. It was amazing how she used her magic to heal his eyes. It was also entertaining when she made a surprise face at her husband saying good thing about her. I end up accidentally clicking four start but I meant to give five stars.

I wish that somebody would just pick this up and translate it! It have been so long since there have been an update! (I would do it myself but I don't... more>> know Chinese and don't know how to become a translator.) <<less

This is A REAL GEM. The MC is Cool, Cold Ruthless but also have the caring and cute part. I love how she STRAIGHTFORWARDLY handle the situation. Did not pretend to be Dumb, Weak, she just be herself out front. I like the intereaction between her and the male lead... they just cute. Its totally a plus and show how unique this novel is with the reverse harem genre and matriarchy. Totally 5 star materials.

Five stars!!! I really recommend this. It breaks convention and is a breath of fresh air. The setting is a matriarchy and the traditional roles you read in other novels are totally reversed (it's nice to read about a place where the woman are in charge for once). The Main Character is well developed and consistent in characterisation, as are the rest of the character. Give it a go.

Now I know the feel why those rubbish series that has plentiful of curvaceous woman got so much rating and love. Imagine josei version of beautiful girl, with limpid eyes, her smile so charming, her hand like a white lotus, so pure and refreshing.

A slightly dense MC with a good story.
