Not the "reincarnated with superpowers in ancient times" that you are expecting. It's not that it's lighthearted and there are no schemes. However, since the main characters are away from the imperial power, the schemes they usually face are more or less concerned about those treacherous people. It's good but if you ask me what's good, then I can't clearly tell the reason. Maybe it's the FL's character? But sometimes, I'm actually dissatisfied with the FL's lowkey character, all the recognition that should've been hers were put on someone's head.... more>> However, I understand. After all, it's really not good for a female in this era to be powerful (just look at fourth miss Lu). Is it the family ties between them? It's not impenetrable either nor it's really not that touching that it makes you cry. There are biases, the human heart is changing, etc. Was it the ML's devotion? But in fact, at first, there is really no spark between them that I am even wondering who is the ML. Also, it's not like I have never seen such an ML. Therefore, it's really hard to say what I really like about it. Nevertheless, it's a good story. Especially the latter half where the ML was finally recognized. There is more sweetness and the ending, albeit, it saddened me for those who were left behind, the extras made up for it.

But I am the kind of reader who pays attention to every supporting character,

and sadly, aside from the FL's mother and brother, no one was mentioned anymore. Like, what was their reaction about the FL and ML's death? What happened to the orphaned Liucheng? What about the reborn Li Yao? Why did the FL say that Zhou Heng and Qi Niang's love story failed? And the Qiu maids too? How about the reaction of the Li brother and sister? Anyway, there are unfinished stories of them but it's not bad if we're just focused on the FL and ML's ending.

Last thing is, do not read this via MTL. I don't know if they really have similar surnames like the Xu of the FL's mother coincides with the Xu of Old Mrs. Xu, or the Lu of the ML and the Lu of Madam Lu, etc. Maybe it's distinguishable if it's in Hanzi, but in English, it's really very confusing. Moreover, I'm kinda confused with Prince Yongkang's rebellion. It's not like I don't get it, but the plot revolves mostly around it, yet due to the translation, it's kinda confusing. Or maybe my mind isn't just focused on it.


Overall, it's not bad. Not that lighthearted but not that heavy-hearted as well. The FL is OP but not invincible. She is likeable but not a group pet. There are also interesting characters. 8/10. <<less

Once again a big thank you to the translator for introducing this story. Was too impatient and finished reading raws using google chrome translation.

A very bittersweet ending (more bitter than sweet if you dont read the 2 extras; make sure to read the extras!). At first was annoyed when I read the last chp before the extras but thankfully that wasn't really the end. Although I know it has to end somehow, but still.

Slice of life mixed with action, if you can believe it. Actually now that I think about... more>> it, I myself am not sure what's so interesting about this story or what's so good about it, but all I know is I enjoyed it and am glad to have read it.

There are some mysteries that are never solved (actually the questions were never even asked, but you know they exist) and not everyone's storyline is wrapped up but I guess that's not too important since the rest are just side characters, but there's still a slight feeling of incompleteness. We do get closure for the MC and ML's ending but I somehow wish there was more. Having said that, this ending is probably as good as it gets, even though it's not perfect.

oh yes I was hoodwinked by the summary into thinking that this was a story about a superpowered female vigilante in ancient times but that's NOT what this story is about, FYI, so adjust your expectations. Like I said there is some action but not quite enough and it can be slow-going at times. It was not as exciting or action-packed as I had hoped.

At 257+2 chapters, it's a neither heavy nor light story and takes at least a week to finish if you only read outside of working.

TLDR; it was interesting enough for me to keep going until I finished it with a bittersweet taste left in my mouth, but as for recommending it, I feel like this is kinda niche and not everyone will enjoy it. Still, you can give it a try. <<less

I like ancient setting novels. So currently this is my favorite. It is good to see power other than space, female is officials concubine daughter but there is not much dog-blood drama, All siblings (currently 7) have good and okayish relationship except for one. Since Official daughter so no money and husband and children problem till now. MC is foodie but not master chef so no kitchen and restaurant excessive parts. MC come from apocalypse so is lazy and not much bothered to care about other people but is also... more>> not apathetic. MC is just happy to have good and peaceful days. So novel mostly has slice of life and little action. <<less
