The Demoness Is Not Evil


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

They say Gentleman Xiao Yao (carefree) Liu Feng is a famed righteous pugilist. He himself thought that even if he isn’t considered noble and benevolent, he is at least of honourable character.

But only when he met her, did he realise that he is very well capable of being such a lecherous man. At every little moment he is constantly wanting to take advantage of her, always trying to touch her soft slender hands. It’s hopeless, who told this lady to just be so interesting, causing his heart to helplessly be moved by her—-

Her appearance looks like that of a refined lady from a well off background, but in reality she is nothing like that inside. Not only highly skilled in martial arts, her sharp tongue is also highly skilled, capable of angering people to a whole new boiling point.

Her ways of doing things is also extremely bold, completely treating the principle of impropriety between men and women like an old fart. He had only jokingly invited her to sleep with him, yet she actually pats the bed beckoning him to attend to her (?) Even going to the point of shooing him out the room after eating him dry, finding him to be too obstructive on the eye, what a way to shoot down his self-esteem.

Ai~ to fall for such a unique girl, causing him to be filled with joy one moment, and filled with sorrow the next. Overjoyed when he has her by his side, sorrowful when she acts so elusive. If that was not enough, she didn’t even leave a single note behind and disappeared without a trace, causing him to become like an abandoned husband searching for his wife.

Little do they know that this is an important test to see if these two people can be together…..

great premise, refreshing banter between characters that doesn't cut corners at all. However, the male lead leaves something to be desired. I'm quite tired of female leads who are strong, but not as strong as the male lead. Or male leads that have no respect for the female lead. The male lead speaks for the FL, pressures her to do things his way, and ultimately kisses her and touches her against her will when she clearly tells him to let go and stop. Sorry, I just don't enjoy novels where... more>> the ML forces his affections. He hurts her when she doesn't give him answers, he gets angry at her when she literally just shows her independence. She literally just met him and he's already telling her what she can and cannot do. Joking and teasing are completely separate from continuously making lewd and inappropriate remarks with someone who is clearly upset and doesn't want it anymore. No thanks!

The female lead is also written to be a hypocrite. She says things bluntly and with no regard to social norms, yet succumbs to the ML's wishes because she doesn't want to stand out and break social norms. Which one is it, author? Is she a blunt and uncaring FL who does what she wants while offending everyone, or is she a weak-willed FL who does whatever the manipulative ML says because she wants him to save face?

eh, it's ok. Not really worth it, and the "flirting" scenes seem to be written by someone who has never flirted in their life and thinks controlling partners are sexy. <<less

A masterful piece of jianghu-wuxia romance. If there is one story in this site that can be made into a movie, this can be it. Written in a graceful style, the translator should be praised for being able to preserve much of the subtleties and force of the prose. Of course there are some odd phrases that can’t translate well from Chinese (“like a fish with oxygen deficiency” – I guarantee you will laugh when you come across this line in the novel), but everything else is translated with much... more>> care and precision. Footnotes of some of the more obscure terms and proverbs help to broaden the reader’s knowledge as well.

The story’s main protagonist is the myterious Qu Qing Yin, who had a chance encounter with the leading man of the jianghu (the martial underworld), Liu Feng. Intrigued by her blunt but charming nature, Liu Feng can’t help but be captivated by her. Surrounding their meeting is a major jianghu event that shadows the entire story. This isn’t a strict wuxia story, rather it is a romantic story set with a wuxia world, where knights-errant roam the country, whose deeds make their names famous or infamous. There is perhaps one actual fight scene described at the very end, all others are merely short displays of what such people can do.

The cast of characters is actually quite small but memorable which is understandable as the novel is actually quite short, with just 10 lengthy chapters each divided in two.

Fans of “To Be Virtuous Wife” could very well enjoy reading this despite the vast difference in genre. Both feature a female lead who is intelligent, sharp-tongued and makes the male character who is supposedly the greatest man of their respective realm pale in comparison. Both novels are about the hesitations before commitment, and the passions elicited once intimacy was achieved. <<less

The beginning was fine with the mysterious female MC, but it feels like as it end the author made sure that the MC's background are huge.

But anyway, it's a great story of a OP woman and a gentleman-turned-to-pervert-with-MC man. This story is not much on their relationship as about chapter 5 (?) they already somewhat confess to each other (quite fast I say, like it was just Bang! They're dating) and been "going out". The story is more focus on the hindrance of the MC to be together.

Extremely sweet and short story. I recommend reading if you're looking for something to kill time that's romance, has decent characters, and hilarious banter. MC is strong-willed and sharp-tongued which leads to hilarious interactions between her and the ML.

tldr; funny and witty romance story that's light

The charm of this story is the witty banter between the characters, as the male lead attempts to endear himself to the sharp-tongued and somewhat closed-off female lead. However giving these conversations priority prevented the story from conveying deeper emotions between the two, especially the female lead. It is also a wuxia series and part of the plot is taking down a rapist. Yet the development in the case and the subsequent battles were severly lacking, being confined to the corners of the story for conversations between the main couple... more>> and various other characters. Overall it was a fun and amusing read, but failed to deliver on everything else aside from humour. <<less

I've finished reading this novel in the only word I think to describe it was AMAZING. Seriously, the female MC is more bad ass than the male lead. It started with awesomeness and ended with awesomeness. I really recommend this novel.

the MC is pretty unique, having mysterious past and the male lead here as well has mysterious profile. The story is pretty unique, the personality of the characters are not boring, they have reasons that lead to the current personality. I enjoy the story and the comedy here. Too bad, the action scenes are not many here. The romance is not that draggy or cliche. The story is not that long which makes me happy. Recommended if you are looking for romance story.

Finish reading the whole novel. Short compared to other novels, romantically sweet, hilarious/sassy interactions, loveable characters (even the villains and side characters), and witty quotes. Beware of the funny R18 descriptions and I really hope the author would release another novel of the 2nd generation.

The story was well written but I did not enjoy that much. Perhaps too narrative but lacking lure of imagination. I was hoping for vivid fight scenes or just vivid scenes period but except for the climax everything else was dull, predictable.

It showed a smart hero and a clever heroine but that was all. No character development, no twisted plot, nothing to bait the reader to ask and ponder. As I'ver stated it was well written but it did not make heart beat faster.",)

Short and sweet. You can finish reading the entire story in less than a day. I recommend it if you're looking for a short and sweet romance with a sharp-tongued heroine. Pros:
Likeable main characters.
Witty banter and flirting.
Fast-paced and easy to read.
Relatively good translation quality. Cons:
Limited number of characters.
The plot/mystery is a little rushed.
Over too quickly. Warning:
It has a couple of very minimal PG-13 scenes. Nothing too graphic. TL;DR:
Read it for the flirting and character interactions. Don't think too hard about the... more>> plot. <<less

a quick read with an actual plot around the romance. It may has a bit too much plot-twist and the FL had a change of heart a bit too fast but all in all, really nice read.

If you want a short story about romance and a pretty cool FL, here you go :)

The translation is amazing, the plot is alternatively slow or rushed, the characters are nice for a short story. Overall enjoyable, but the style is a bit too flowery for me, the dialogue can be interesting, but the setup takes a while and gets bogged down. HE, and the MC is refreshingly direct, even if predictably OP.

I have to admit Chinese literature is somewhat confusing. There's a lot of idiom, culture, or words that don't have direct translation to another language. When I read this, there's a lot of underlying meaning rather that literal which confuse me greatly. I have to read and think twice or thrice for each sentence that I didn't get cause how subtle it is. It's like a poem (and I don't like poem tbh).

Fortunately, the translation group is very thoughtful for giving readers some footnotes about what it means. That's a... more>> point I'm grateful with. I really wish the longevity of this group, albeit I wish too much, it seems.

For the storyline, it's simple. Less drama, nothing gore, with some smutty and fluffy scene. Well, it's a romance novel, nothing is deep here. Romance novel is meant for feeding human feeling, which in a way, this novel able to deliver some emotions.

I can't say much for the characters. The characters are interesting in each own. I will recommend this for anyone who is above 17 years old for smutty scene (I've read the worst, but there's nothing wrong for a caution). Oh well, this is josei which means my caution is sensible. <<less

Another Jianghu romance. Very satisfying. The FL and ML are just right. Everything gets solved. Not angsty at all. Conversations between FL and ML and other characters are very interesting. Novel is short but sweet. Has been completely translated.

A great piece of jianghu romance!

I haven't read much of anything like this with a mysterious female OP MC, so my review may be a bit bias. I really like to read about mysterious and strong protagonists so this story was a fascinating adventure full of mystery, politics, and love. All the little tidbits of foreshadowing bring together a satisfying climax and happy ending, but I am still confused about certain parts of the story. For example, what exactly is the background of the ML and how is the male... more>> side character related to the ML? I'm not very good at solving mysteries even though I love reading about them, so I am still confused at this point. As for the ending, I would actually like side stories or a sequel since it ends at a cliffhanger in which another crime is being committed, but oh well. I enjoyed this short story a lot! <<less

A bit short but overall I loved it. Main leads are likeable and it was quite sweet as well as a little bit of amusement at times. I especially like the fact that the female lead was very bold in her actions ;)

It’s a wuxia novel that uniquely sets a female protagonist in a detective-like plot. However, there are also plenty of cute moments, funny anecdotes, and wise quotes. The only downside of “Demoness is Not Evil” is that the story is too short, so the conflict, MC love story and the characters around her are not fully fleshed out and leave the readers wanting for more!
