2/5 – 2 and not a 1 because it started off decently enough, but after a hundred chapters, you get the sense this is going nowhere, and after 200 chapters, it seriously started pissing me off... ended up dropping it after 260+ chapters, because its not consistent anymore, the main completely changed her character by this point. Much less an assassin, I doubt she has gone past preschool in her original life... the main who is supposed to be a competent woman, is just a whining, crying good for nothing... more>> who leeches from her family, from her love interest, and has s*upid good luck... yet she feels disadvantaged and wronged by everyone who helps her... thick skin much?

To make this clearer, I’ll compare it to the main chars of Stunning Edge and Descent of the Phoenix... both stories start of similarly...

In Stunning Edge, you don’t know what the main char is in her past life. She just possesses a girl who is known only for being an idiot man chaser, she is the joke of the entire city and all men know to avoid her. Then after the possession, she becomes hard working and serious... she apologizes to the family head, asks for teachers, and starts to diligently work to better herself. She treats everyone how they treat her... kind to people who were/are kind to her, ruthless to her enemies, and generally polite but uninterested in people who have nothing to do with her. She doesn’t really go looking for men because she knows she is just so lacking she uses up all her time just catching up to her peers. But even so, she networks and does manage to make some allies here and there.

In DoP, the main char is the same as in DKC... a super-assassin who possesses a good for nothing. When she first came to the alternate world, she was ready to disappear (run away from her family) in order to train, cuz she doesn’t need to rely on anyone. But when she realizes the prince is actually sincere in liking her, she immediately seduces him, moves to his palace and trains there. Therefore, she regains the strength she had in her previous life almost immediately. Despite being a “ruthless, coldblooded assassin”, she generally treats other people well. She trains a group of covert operatives, and they become her subordinates, which is believable considering she used to be head of her assassins guild. Aside from this, she displays many traits one would think an assassin would have including ability to bluff, threaten, keep her composure, use people, manipulate people, etc. She is smart enough to act as a general to draw enemy attention, but also smart enough to realize it’s not her area of expertise so she is just willingly becoming the figure head of the army. She is also competent enough to disappear without any of the enemy countries noticing, then reappearing later in a far-off enemy kingdom to do reconnaissance and assassinate the entire enemy kingdom royal family. She’s also adept at disguises and changing her character and atmosphere completely in order to do her tasks.

On the other hand, the DKC main is the exact opposite of both these competent mains mentioned above. Su Luo, who should have been a competent woman, after possessing the body, becomes a man chasing idiot instead. Every time the main guy says one word, her brain immediately short circuits... so much for being an assassin... But. She’s also unable to understand anyone aside from herself. The guy keeps saving her over and over, and goes out of his way to help her, even once almost dying or lose all his cultivation forever... and the only thing Su Luo thinks is the guy will probably still be able to manipulate her even when hes dead, hes so terrifying like a devil... What a ret*rd...

She’s also a complete fail as an assassin. Or more like, shes just a giant leech. She stays in her family’s house despite proclaiming she has disowned them, she keeps getting the guy to help her over and over and over and over without payment or anything in exchange, and still has the gall to claim he is somehow taking advantage of her when he helps her... All her progress is due to others helping her (but not once is she grateful), or her absurd luck. She somehow manages to attract the strongest person in the country despite being a literal good-for-nothing, she somehow picks up a pet dragon, she somehow gets the dragon’s dad to teach her some overpowered unknown magic, she somehow stumbles onto the hidden tomb of the most powerful alchemist in the world and steals all his research and treasure, she somehow picks up millions of gold worth of cultivating stones, her pet dragon somehow has the skill to pick the most valuable cultivating stones from a pile of worthless rocks... her luck is just absurd that everything she needs constantly falls into her lap, but despite all these, she is still as incompetent as ever... or she’d have already been overpowered 150 chapters ago... All she has to do is find the f***ing courage to leave her house, spend 1 month being a hermit like the main of DoP, and train, but she is just so useless it will probably take her 2, 500 chapters to get that far.

Her actions also prove that she is s*upid, borderline ret*rded. She knows that at this point, she is weaker than her sister’s dog... yet she keep picking fights with her rivals, her enemies, her sisters,... children, pets, animals, s*aves, even random merchants trying to sell their wares because they “talk too loudly” to suit her taste. She's so petty I almost expect her to pick fight with the air she breathes if she keeps this up. But she will probably lose, as she has lost to everything else already. She has just 1 pattern – thinks she is weaker than everyone around her, picks a fight with a random person that crosses her path, flees to Nangong, Nangong protects her, then she accuses Nangong of taking advantage of her.

———————

*on top of a mountain*

aaaargh air, why will you not enter my lungs faster???!?!!!! you need a fireball!!!

*makes things worse*

i hate you air, that’s it, i’m going to bomb the mountain

*almost kills herself, but Nangong will miraculously show up to save her*

goddammit Nangong, you took advantage of me again by going out of your way to save me!!!!!! screw you i’m leaving

*stumbles on a rock*

goddammit rock, you picking a fight with me too??!!?!)

————————

orz

So yeah... the reason I dropped DKC is because the main is NOT an assassin, but a spoiled 13 yr old girl who has never received an education, “crushing” on a man while having the idea that the person you love = your pet. <<less

It was decent (not great, but an entertaining read) until Chapter 250, when it turns to shit.

Chapter after chapter rhapsodizing about the male lead's glowing nipples and erot*c Adam's apple (and I really wish I was exaggerating either of those). It reads like a particularly r*pe-y Harlequin romance.

Its so strange to me that there is an entire Genre of stories that are, Girl is in some way a compentent person on earth, then dies and takes over the body of someone who's ret*rded in random China Fantasy World X.

Some of them are good, some not so much. This is one that isn't great.

I have 2 main issues with this.

The first is that everyone, EVERYONE, has zero self awareness of their own strengths and weaknesses. Everyone irrationally assumes they're the greatest thing ever. Even people who specifically know... more>> they're weaker than the guy in the room with them, who know their position is weaker, will still act like they're god. And everyone will Irrationally hate the main character.

The MC, before being possess, was a random girl born to the family's mistress, and who has no talent for magic. So, she's basically an average person.

Obviously, her entire family hates her with an overwhelming passion, they can't stand her existence. Okay, granted, perhaps she's an embarrassment to the family, 4-5 kids are talented, then there's the MC. But why do other, non related people, all hate her too? It makes no sense.

Every character is so stuck up, so self important, and so incredibly incompetent, that the idea that this character who wasn't talented and who isn't killing herself when they cross paths, makes them explode with rage.

Okay, so everyone hates her for her lack of talent, but then as she becomes talented, they still hate her. And, better yet, they refuse to believe she has talent.

Pro tip people, when someone offers you a bet for a billion dollars that is based largely on luck, don't accept it, they're cheating.

Every person just self destructs against her through massive levels of s*upidity.

The worst part about this, is that this makes up almost the entire plot. We go from arc to arc of someone looking down on her, exploding into irrational rage, and then walking into an obvious trap. The payout for the reader, would be the satisfaction of watching them crash and burn, but even that fails to be entertaining.

Because the entire scenario is so outrageously s*upid, that it looks like a farce.
Because it happens hundreds of times.
Because there is 30 chapters spent explaining how irrationally s*upid the enemy character is, and then 2-3 chapters of fallout before we rush right back into it.

God it's bad.

Okay, and reason 2.

The male lead, is devilishly handsome, with jade like skin, shimmering eyes, the complexion of a god, silky smooth hair, and more. Okay, a character needs to be described.

The first time they show up, or when their appearance changed.

this guy gets described every 5 chapters. And for chapters that are a page long, when you use 3 paragraphs to talk about his cheek bones, it gets old fast. <<less

Very contrived, full of useless plot.

500 chapters that could be shortened into less than half that number, as each chapter is around 1100 words. Heroine could pretty much lose the assassin backstory and still be the same (she acts nowhere like an assassin). Also, her revenge is just really petty (instead of ending lives fast and cleanly when she can, as a mothafking ASSASSIN should), she likes to play around and get bitten. In fact she's pretty dumb.

All the regular xianxia lucky cheats just don't seem to help her much...... more>> or it could be the fact that she barely spends any time at all cultivating, instead trying to get involved with politics of nobility- hanging around with the major clan heirs, playing their word games. Seriously, why give her these cheats if she doesn't use them? Actually, why write this story with a xianxia background at all?

One more thing. The prince NL obviously shows a lot of care for her and is willing to invite her to live in his palace where she is safe (to cultivate and get strong). But no, she must cling to her 'pride' and 'modesty' and stay at her father's clan home, where everyone hates her and takes actions to bully her. Illogical and s*upid. Besides, where is this false modesty/pride of hers coming from? Scared that people will talk behind her back if she goes live with the prince pre-maritally? FFS you brainless twit, you were an ASSASSIN from the 21st Century, a time where ideals of modesty are far different.

Dropped this because MC straight up doesn't have a clue. <<less

Made an account just to throw in this review, otherwise id feel like I wasted my time on over 800 chaps which are likely to repeat themselves for the next 8000 for nothing. Thank you @chibihaven for your review or I wouldn't know to stop.

Description says all, should be romance, somewhat adventure, who expect cultivation just withdraw yourself.

Those who expect romance, beware it may not be the kind you want. In fact I snort, how is this deserved to be called romance, more like a possessive psycho manipulating a kid around. We are missing a "abusive male lead" tag also, unless yall consider choking normal. In fact all the "decent" male like choking when female lead says something they don't wanna hear, I guess choking is normal in this universe.

First bad thing: shitty drama love chase. Second bad thing: tr*sh or 1D characters from the protag to every antag you see. Im not even being harsh here. Main chara dont fit intended description. Su luo is a shrewd assassin? I snort, more like a little smartmouthed kid. Nangong emotionless stubborn his mighty highness? I snort again, more like a raging teenager constantly mad and horny. I dont think I need to mention his ever changing appearing shiny body parts either im sure we all know too well.

Villains are strong yet so s*upid it hardly make sense. Su luo so talented yet lagging. Everyone is an idiot overestimate themselves or just have more than a few screws loose, those who should die already still fumbling around while minor villains by association keep dropping dead.

This su luo even when compared to that guy from PMG is still on an entire new level. Not only her face incites random hostility everywhere she go, her guy being nangong brings another herd of villains altogether. Lets not mention friends. What friend or ally shes made thats not due to nangong?

Theres no one at all I feel like cheering for, feel like a wallflower watching things to just... happen.

Those who expect adventure, also beware. Much of this "adventure" is being dragged around by nangong, or chased around by villains. Think about it, su luo might be running around doing her own things from time to time, but that nangongs shadow always lurking around can interrupt whenever, feeling tied down, so tiring to read.

The saving grace is the humor, also the fact that everyone is so idiotic they keep jumbling around in a mess that it turns into something ridiculous and can be fun.

The thing is draggy and never get better. Randomly written id give a 0 star. I had some fun so theres the 1 star, but still, regretted it. But there no medicine for regrets in this world ah.

Hate it or love it. I would imagine the reception for this novel is quite bipolar. I love it for the back story, the overall story line, and the MC. Despite nearly 8000 chapters, I still feels like there's so many more interesting stories to tell, so much more plot to uncover. At the same time, there are many chapters which feels like torture to read and should be completely ignored. Before anything else, the author pretty much makes it her mission in life to write 6 chapters (6000 words)... more>> per day. In a good month, 8-9 chapters per day. This pretty much leads to nearly all of the problems everyone has with this novel, which may or may not include entire chapters describing just all beautiful and perfect the male lead is (using the same words and phrases!). During time when the author have something she wants to tell, you'll get interesting and possibly enthralling plot. Other times, you might get tens of chapters of the absolute cheesy descriptions of how just about everyone is surprised at how great and perfect the male lead is (i hate this). What you would be able to truly be able to enjoy is the overall story telling, not well written chapters and the miscellaneous stuff that happens, or else will only lead to your disappointment. Unfortunately, I think you can't truly grasp the story until after 1900 or even 3000 chapters. Forgive my selfishness for rate it as a 5 even though it doesn't deserve it. I just love the world built in this novel and want to read more about it.

Edit:

Reading some of the other reviews, I feel the need to point out that this really isn't a romance novel by any means, it's pretty terrible in that regards. This is a Xianxia and adventure novel in truest words. The story is very slow as you can probably tell by the 8000+ chapter. And the main story doesn't really start until 700+ chapters, aka this part currently being translated. And it's from this point onward that she really starts improving herself in a Xianxia way. There are romantic moments here and there, which are mostly for word padding. There are moments where they have random relationship problems, which are used to temporarily separate the MC and the male lead so she can go on her adventures. No surprise, the best parts of the novel are when the male lead isn't around. How the male lead is portrayed is definitely the worst parts of the novel (perfect, all capable, always being able to solve all problems no matter how ridiculous it was). I am actually surprised that the male lead hasn't already become the MC instead of Su Luo. The author uses the male lead as a swiss army knife to problems and situations that he MC shouldn't currently be able to handle. The MC needs to face these situations due to her background, which is slowly revealed (think like 5000+ chapters and not yet fully), and the fact that she needs to keep challenging herself to complete her mission. She's also very spoiled and eccentric, also sometimes very childish, which causes some problems. My personal attitude to this last point is that this is the way she should have been but couldn't be so due to her situation, which makes it kind of cute when she shows this side of herself (when she have someone around that she can rely on).

The second worst part of the novel is how everything is exaggerated. In summary, many of the complaints in other reviews in regarding the romantic relationship and lack of character growth are not the reason why this is still a popular novel with almost 8000 chapters. The MC, her background and her adventures are definitely the mean draw of this novel. This is a "long term novel". Having 10, or 50 or even 200 shitty chapters while the author plans out future parts of her story shouldn't be unexpected at all. <<less

A review said this is a twisted romance, I agree. NL does nice things for SL sure, but his behaviors are outright obsessive manipulating sadistic childish shameless throwing tantrums. Using his life to bargain for affection, using his senior sister to make SL jealous and made her sad, when SL said her lips might not for his only he choked her to half death then kissed her to provide air (?) I mean they weren't even in a relationship at that point. Fortunately SL is a masochist (?) because that all seem acceptable for her, and she eventually accepted him as her future mate... I guess I can only blame myself for not having the same taste in men as the author... Some criticize SL for being unfair to NL but uhhhhhh did she not risk herself for him too? Besides NL decided to charge into troubles himself, and most of SL's crisis is thanks to his devilishly charming visage anyway, if he don't at least try to protect her then im afraid he has no redeeming quality to be male lead at all, not when he takes half the screen time while having no respect for even his love interest...

Another review said the parts without NL's barf inducing flirt are the best parts of the novel, I agree. It is entertaining to see SL running around facing her enemies without NL sticking to her like an erot*c pimple, if you can get used to the fact that aside from her ridiculous luck, she is also a villain magnet.

Everyone powerful that fancies NL (yes you guess right that's everyone but SL's maid) or is not from NL friends, they all want a piece of SL. The words rational and reasonable don't exist in their vocab, so don't expect them to act normal... don't expect smart scheming either. Even if NL and SL's personality and actions are described as exceptional this and that, it feels like author overpraises repeatedly to hypnotize readers into believing it. The fact that everyone behaves like a vile kid with elementary scheming is just obvious. The only good characters are the beasts, baby dragon is cute to the max.

Oh well villains make beef with SL for?? reason and I get the fun fun so no complain. But! NL is there more than half the time, so my fun is halved. If you tell me the author is not writing romance around the adventure but the other way around then im sorry to have to doubt you, the weird romance is so invested that I can even touch it. And honestly how is NL not the story lead? His body takes major part of the story... And whatever NL does is revered to the 9th level of heaven while whatever SL does or doesn't do is slandered all the way to the bottom of the ocean. My patience is thinning out and by this point reading the reviews is more fun than the novel itself...

I'm holding on after hearing the good news that NL will secluded cultivate for at least 6 months, that should take around another 700 chap right? right?

Starts off decent enough, up until the male love interest starts trying to ‘seduce’ the female MC. Then it starts pissing me off big time.

I stopped reading when the MC, who’s presented to us as a callous, independent woman, feels guilty for injuring the love interest when he basically tried to r*pe her (that’s not a spoiler; using force is his default seduction technique in every chapter I went through), and every character in the book holds her to be at fault for it.

Apart from that, there is just way... more>> too much flowery description of clothes and eyes and complexions and “devilish handsomeness”.
Props to the translator for slogging through all that crap. <<less

This book sometimes make you question whether the author was drunk half the time.

The more I think about it, the more I want to give it a -100/10.

It was really entertaining in the first 400 chapters or so. The face slaps were satisfying, and well built up, but it was like the author lost their drive after they hit the 400 chapter mark. Everything seemed so repetitive that I grew numb of reading it and started looking for summaries. I only continued because I wanted to see the progress between... more>> the FL and ML.

I'm just going to vent talk about Su Luo, our FL.

There are too many flaws in the novel for me to write about in a review, not to mention the side characters.

Su Luo is an independent, strong, mature and prideful woman who never needs help from anyone, even with all the powerful connections Male lead she has.

I admired her because she always relied on herself to solve her own problems, never asking others for help. She used her own experiences and strengths - from being an assassin, to get herself out of sticky situations.

But she was too Mary Sue, the author tries way too hard just to make her better than everyone else. Even better than the, "Once in a millennium geniuses" of that world.

I'm sorry, but aren't they called geniuses for a reason? Why did the author put such a large gap between them? Just because she's from another world? Apparently luck is more superior than talent in this book.

Which wasn't that bad, some readers like OP female lead that can slap faces? Not to mention, it usually happens in other similar books.

But it got so repetitive, it became really obvious that every living being are just cannon fodders, which was just plain frustrating to read.

Here are some examples:

Spoiler

It's been a long time since I dropped this unqiue novel, therefore many scenes might be not accurate.

    • She swallowed an ancient dragon ring -and she didn't explode from the large amount of energy that was contained in it, so she was deemed the owner of it, and thus turned into a 'extinct' space type cultivator after she transmigrated.
    • Because of that, she had her own space, and while other people have to carry a dimension bag, which was also very rare because you needed space cultivators to make it, and they're pretty hard to find.

I didn't mind that, having an internal space was pretty common in transmigration and xianxia books anyways.

    • She got chased by an actual dragon at one time. While everyone was dying, she survived! But the dragon dumped his kid on her, and boom! Ultra rare legendary pet acquired! Of course as compensation, he also gave her a mysterious jade plaque that was filled with rare artifacts, like space cultivation manuals and other treasures.

Which means she could now learn how to cancel out space and tear into void itself.

I didn't mind that as well, in fact I found it very cool. Our MC have marital arts that is unique to just her, like other protagonists in other books.

The next arc was filled with way too many plot holes that were unrealistic even for a fiction novel.

    • An ancient palace opens in the middle of the sea, she went there in search of treasures. The palace being a 'dangerous place' was filled with traps, but every room she went... NO TRAPS, just treasures. While other mobs were dying left and right because they activated some Pandora's box.

There was even one time when she picked a random stone off the ground (iirc), and it turned out to be a rare magic stone that can unleash a powerful move similar to the full strength of a high cultivator.

And the author wrote it as incredible luck.

Because the author spent too much time on writing how OP MC was, it didn't even make sense.

    • In the late chapters, she found out about her true identity. Apparently, she was actually the MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WORLD, and that she was wearing a face mask this whole time, a mask she didn't even know about, and I swear I never read anything about her being ugly or wearing a disguise.
    • Her mother was the previous "Miss Universe" (that's where she got her genes from) -and a powerful one as well. Many people wanted her to be their waifu. Particularly 4 godly beings. But she mysteriously died/disappeared, and only some of her close 'friends' which are the 4 people (all were friend-zoned for this other mysterious man -her father) knew that she actually had a daughter.

She was adopted and no one knew... That's kinda explains why everyone in that toxic af family hates her, they're not even blood related.

    • Apparently, greatest apothecary/doctor/SPACE cultivator was one of the 4 admirers. He knew Su Luo was the daughter, that's why he accepted her as his disciple, teaching her how to make things.

But what made me a bit sceptical was that, Su Luo was bullied to the point of death in her adopted fake family in the past, and this guy never once checked up on her even though she was your beloved's daughter???

She was the one who approached him, and got suspicious after seeing a huge painting hanged on his study with a woman that looks like her. Then he told her everything after she confronted.

When the author wrote that space types were extinct, I thought that they're meant to be... gone. But for the sake of convenience for the MC, author chucked another one in, just to say a few lines that kinda went like this.

"You can use this dimension bag to cover your identity as a space cultivator."

"Okay, but where did you get it, and how did you know that I'm a space cultivator?"

"I'm a space mage myself, I made 3 new bags and everyone knows that one was auctioned away some time ago, now people won't think that you're a space mage cuz they think you're the person that brought space bag."

"Thanks bruh master."

Tldr; She never had to work for all the treasures, all the cheats, all the golden fingers, everything she got. It was dropped right onto her lap. BeCausE of Her IncreDibLe LuCK

[collapse]

The female lead, though a 'renowned assassin of the 21st century', she's pretty unintelligent for her occupation.

Spoiler

There was this one time when I nearly dropped the book because MC was plain s*upid.

Annoying green tea white lotus b****:

  • Some 'fairy' of some lake
  • Childhood friends with ML
  • Has a restraining order.
  • Ears for ornaments, brain for decroration.
  • All the positive feelings ML had for her as childhood friends, disappeared because she doesn't understand the word 'no'.
  • Doesn't take the hint.
  • Uses other poor men just to get ML jealous, but he doesn't give a f***
  • Other people that liked her fake persona died and she doesn't even feel any remorse or guilt even though she's the sole reason of their deaths. She only puts on crocodile tears in front of male lead to get pity from him, but he knows she's a snake.
  • One time this guy used some demonic art, which sacrifices all his blood in order to find a treasure for her, but she was like 'use more, I need to find it first he can notice me, and regret being with the MC.' tf

Anyways, this B**** was unconscious, and there was only the two of them in a secluded room. NO ONE CAN STOP THE MC FROM CHANGING THE ENTIRE PLOT AND END THE BOOK THAT IS STILL ONGOING WITH 10, 000+ CHAPTERS

Su Luo being an assassin, can easily kill someone clean and swiftly.

BUT SHE DIDN'T. INSTEAD SHE WAS LIKE "OH WELLS, I HAVE PLENTY OF CHANCES TO KILL HER IN THE FUTURE.

  • Remember that stone she randomly picked up? There's multiple. And it contains high amount of spiritual energy. Therefore there is a REALLY LOW CHANCE 0.0000000000000000001% for the person who got hit by the rock to directly break through to that level of strength that the rock contained.
  • With a rank 7 rock, (lets say you're rank 1) you can immediately rise to rank 7 which can take hundreds of years to slowly cultivate, if you get hit with that rock.
  • OF COURSE WITH MC'S 'INCREDIBLE LUCK', when she chucked it, she made people breakthrough.
  • But the s*upid thing was, she chucked it at her enemy that was near death.

First time is fine, because who knew MC was that lucky?

But after the second time, and the third time and so on, she should have f**king realised it by now.

[collapse]

Su Luo is quite a role model I don't wish anyone to follow as well.

There was one scene I was the most disappointed in,

Spoiler

TRIGGER WARNING.

In the late chapters (arena/tournament arc, I think), side b**** is still alive,

wow what a shocker

She brought yet another guy to make ML jealous.

But one night, something happened.

Guy who liked the b****, couldn't keep it in his pants, and r*ped her.

Girl being so traumatized and shooked, fainted because she was saving herself for the ML.

Su Luo, and someone was with her (iirc), saw the unconscious girl.

AND ACTUALLY THOUGHT OF SUCH A DISGUSTING IDEA. They threw her out to the streets and called a beggar/homeless person to continue taking advantage of her when she was unconscious, even

it might be wrong, I don't remember and I dont want to remember

gathering people to watch her being... urgh.

Wow.

In the end, she got pregnant from the beggar, and things escalated after that.

BRUH

[collapse]

I dropped it straight away because of that. She shouldn't even be a female lead anymore.

I only dragged myself to continue because of the 'romace'. I just wanted a sappy love book.

[EDIT]:

Just finally realize how s*upid I was, what love? It was forced af. Xd

Wanna know how they became an actual couple?

Spoiler

ML falls first as mentioned in tags.

Su Luo on the other hand...

Using Tsundere is really an understatement.

I understand that because she got betrayed by her past lover, and that why she died the first time, she didn't want another relationship.

And she finally realised that ML actually loved her unconditionally

WHILE RIDING ON A HORSE WITH HIM after provoking yet another 'powerful and one of a kind genius' and being saved by him because that mob wasn't someone she can offend. #confession_of_the_year #sudden_realisation

[collapse]

Author, if you really don't want romance to happen yet, then don't force it. Even if it takes more chapters,

I don't care, I was surprised, I was amazed. All the author had was that? You'd think after writing 1000+ chapters at the time, the writing would get better...

Highly recommended if you want negative brain cells. <<less

So yeah, as you can see I've gotten way farther into this novel than is healthy.

I couldn't bring myself to give it a 2 star rating though because in the end, I do enjoy the very large universe that is revealed as the story progresses. It also has a way of making me a s*upid grinning fool. And the cliffhangers... Oh the cliffhangers... Make me burning sometimes.

In any case, there are very few 'character types'. Same kind of reactions all the time which can be annoying... Or just boring... Or you just ignore it. The goofy foolish type is quite rampant in this novel, as is the tough old men that actually feel like children inside. Also the amount of people that seem to mindlessly fall in love for and/or worship to the MC can be overwhelming (I forgot what word I was going to use...).

Is the love relationship bland and boring? Indeed. In fact the most infuriating moments I have experienced from a novel were from precisely this one; An appaling little amount of trust between the couple af crucial points in their relationship when they seem to be oh so head over heels in love. This isn't a relationship, it's just a really s*upidly poor way to make drama. It does have its endearing and cute moments.

BTW, the male lead is just so utterly perfect and such a genius the MC literally becomes s*upid and can't think for herself (mentioned often in the novel, so I guess at least the author knows how s*upid she is I guess?).

The constant descriptions of certain (ahem) characters beauty, intellect an/or luck are also a constant reminder of the author's desperate attempt to lengthen and meet their word targets (unfortunately).

In the end, things get pretty repetitive (and redundant). All in all, I'll likely keep reading. I've learned to skim through all the time wasters, like skipping reaction shot scenes of every character (One Piece anyone?) in anime.

Read at your own discretion. Good luck.

At c121, all I can say about what I've read is: A twisted 'romance' put into a xianxia world with a female lead. Like many leads, she is a heavenly talent with heavenly luck, but for the focus is the 'romance', none of this talent or luck is put to work therefore making this a 'shoujo', not a cultivation novel by any means.

The relationship is, well, either you like it or hate it, then either you try to stomach it (hoping it would get better) or you can't. The 'romance'... more>> is intense with emotion and steamy forced actions (from the male lead) so if you like it then you really like it and vice versa. I guess it's similar to 50 shades of grey in this way.

Unfortunately, I fall into the "hate it with a blazing passion" category thus dropping it at c121. I'm writing this review to tell you why and hoping to save those who are irked by similar things as me from wasting their time and vomiting their blood of anger.

Spoiler

Female lead:

- So called broken-hearted ice cold assassin who actually does know how to use her brains yet continues to be pushed around (emotionally) by the 'male lead' and her contracted beast, and also the love rival (s).

- Even the simple tactic "use others' knife to kill an enemy" that she used is consider shrewd and assassin-worthy. Ummm??? That's like the basic of the basic.

'Male lead' (yes I say this with a disgust) :

- Extremely talented and described as "devilishly and charmingly" (the phrase is used so many times that I regret not couting it to laugh (or cry) at the exact number of times I had to see it). Whatever body parts and actions of his mentioned, they are praised over and over. Once or twice, or even ten times, I can deal. However, it's too taxing to encounter this every chapter. Is the main lead really the girl, or she's just a channel for the author/reader fangirls to experience the male lead's 'love'?

- He suddenly fell in love, and acted doting, only reason so far is that she is the same as him, cunning, planning, cruel, can kill with a smile. Please don't tell me he hasn't met any girl like that in the cultivation world, because so far all the female antagonists are also like that.

- He is mad all the freaking time when MC is unpleasant towards his forced advances like??? That's why I call it "twisted". He does nice things, say sappy lines, but also forces romantic actions on her (no she doesn't ask for it, she's simply physically powerless).

- He brought MC to a dangerous place while she's powerless, left her alone during the most critical time, forcing her to fight for her life (especially from his childhood sweetheart's scheme), then scolded her for making him worried by disappearing? Orz. Then he didn't believe her words and broke her heart again.

- The sh*t hits the fan (also where I drop this novel) is right afterward when he guilt tripped her into caring/having feelings for him using his own life. First his subordinate blamed her for injuring him while he was still weak (from fighting for his childhood sweetheart yes). How the hell was she supposed to know he was injured? Also she wouldn't punch him if he didn't force kiss her, twice. Then he forced her to use his knife to 'vent' on his body, psychologically control any shred of emotions she had. Yes he succeeded, she couldn't vent shit, and had to say that she forgave him. Then he collapsed, making her feel guilty and frantically worry for his life. The author drops a line from her pov: "She wouldn't dare to hurt him again". GJ author for ruining the female lead. Really, is this how you treat your MC???

Other characters: no one has a brain, everyone is the same.

I would say the leads are s*upid too but that would have been unfair to them because they are not intended to be s*upid, it's just that the author failed to make them smart and mighty.

[collapse]

TL;DR: I started for a good xianxia with female lead, however found out the main point is actually the romance, the kind of which involves lead characters whose personalities and interactions I can't bear to make myself stomach.

Waittt so why did I give it a 2-star??? You're right it shoulda been 1 but I feel like I have been unfair to stop and rate at c121 out of 7700+ chapters so yeah bonus 1 star for any possible good bit that I never have the patience to read. <<less

Very interesting romance novel which executes the move to another world quite well in my opinion, also you will most likely have a love/hate relationship with both the male and female lead at different points in the story.

Pros:
- You will roll on the floor laughing often;
- You will think damm thats cute very often (Meng Meng) ;
- Female lead is awesome and entertaining;
- Well written story.

Cons:
- Short chapter lenght (very short sometimes) ;
- Ocasional Word padding;
- Ridiculous romance struggles by the main couple... more>> happen sometimes.

All said and done I definitely recommend this novel. <<less

I’d like to give a review about this novel before deciding to drop it from my reading list. Well, this novel started good with a transported MC from another world. I expected a stunning MC like from the other novel of the similar genre such as DOP or A Mistaken Marriage Match: A Generation of Military Counselor. And yes, the MC is really stunned me... in another way.

By the chapter 260, I can’t really stand the character of MC anymore. She supposed to be a first rate assassin with a... more>> first rate assassin character, but guess what, she become and dumber as the story goes. She was potrayed as an independent female MC in the beginning but just turned into a tsundere that easily attracted to the male MC. Such irony. The story is also draggy, especially the romance. If it compare to the other novel, ATG is way much better (although some of you may despise Yun Che but in my opinion Nangong Liuyun is worse, and Suo Luo is even worse).

Note: If you looking for a transported MC and a romance themed novel I recommend To Be A Virtuous Wife. <<less

The only novel that I have ever gotten frustrated with and dropped. Yes, I have dropped novels before, but it's usually more of a boredom thing.

It is INSANE how every woman seems to hate the MC, and even more insane is the s*upid mess with the ML who can't get his priorities straight. Honestly, the book would have been much better without the ML in the begining. It's like he's a walking mess magnate, more than half the conflict in the book is present because people hate him, because people... more>> "love" him, or because he keeps on assaulting the MC.

I barely pulled myself together after this mess of a man chose to protect some other woman over the MC (who wouldn't need protection IF HE HADN'T DRAGGED HER TO THE MIDDLE OF THE f*ckING JUNGLE), but I completely lost it when he was thinking about how he had been attracted to the other woman, he just liked the MC more. So he threatened the MC with suicide but she wasn't even so special to the point where he could have litterally been together with another woman????????

A mess. <<less

I thought I'd summarise some of my main takeaways from this novels narrative, characterisation, plot arcs, worldbuilding, and so forth as simply as possible to make it easier to read and digest! This is only my own opinion of course, but I hope it's a fair review! :)
Spoiler
  • Sexual assault and threatening suicide isn't romantic. It's abuse.
  • Sexual assault and threatening suicide isn't romantic. It's abuse.
  • SEXUAL ASSAULT AND THREATENING SUICIDE ISN'T ROMANTIC. IT'S ABUSE.

I originally loved this story. Well written, well translated.

At c1197 I can no longer bring myself to read this story. It's constantly either the male lead or the female lead getting wounded (with or without lowered cultivation) and then the other having to go save them.

This can only happen so many times before a story should just end.

I think I'll see if I can get this renamed to, "Flogging a Dead Horse".

This one had a good start (and was one of the first I read of this genter)... untill the Jade lake Fairy attacked lol.... All the woman besides the MC and her friend are super bad and jelous and all want to get into the ML's pants like he is the only man existed ever. And thats the whole plot..... Add to the mc's random plot armor and the fact she gets all the best things ever without ever needed to lift a finger and some nonsense explanation as to... more>> why
Spoiler

Her master couldnt have raised her from the begging is beyond me.... his reasons dont make sense since he is faaaar stronger than his enemies he didnt want to kill for ???? orz

After 4000 chaps the story even resets with the amnesia plot! *throws tables*... then for the leads to get married properly the MC needs to become a virgin again..... somehow *facepalm*

Probably the most unhealthy relationship I've ever read in this genre. It takes r*pey ML to another level. Dropped at 120 and I honestly can't understand how it could go on to 9k chapters and it still isn't done. I feel a cold chill whenever they interact coz female lead seems to have no backbone whatsoever. How can she easily forgive the guy for being so manipulative? Egads. I cringe at remembering their scenes together.

This author is still not done with this novel... it’s very draggy. Please just finish it and let this end... let her be with a good guy. I don’t like the males in this novel, fake as hell and pretty dumb.

In the beginning I did like the novel but then after chapter 200 something I started to get really annoyed with the characters. They seem to get dumber as the story goes on. Not dumber per se, cause there are some smart moments. But the way the author wrote... more>> out some of their thoughts, dialogues and scenes just provokes me.

The main female lead somehow gets into a bad situation cause of the guy or she herself made enemies. Then she gets out of those situations somehow; good luck, awesome items, etc., you see where this is going.

I’m really put off with the never ending bad situations she gets into and somehow gets out of.

Read this if you want, but I warn you, 6000+ chapters of this and still ongoing. Go ahead and read this if you can stand the agony of waiting. <<less

This is not a romance cultivation novel. This is a novel about a girl who "hates" but for some reason won't leave the male lead gets sexually assaulted and her narcism. She brags about being an amazing assassin when all she got is a smart mouth. The male lead is a yandere (idk spelling) to the extreme. The MC girl forgets grievances and tools she has to get out of situations.

Main thing that gets me heated is the male leads childhood friend tried to murder the MC. MC asks male lead if he would believe her if she said his childhood friend is trying to kill her and he said no. Than he ends up almost dying and she ends up forgiving him and forgets that happened.

Honestly is a ret*rded MC girl and a yandere male lead who both suck at talking and with there feelings and its just terrible.

Oh yeah...

Theres about 60 chapters about splitting open rocks for crystals... Just so you know. See the status? she only leveled up twice...

Also, if you see a description of someone, it gets repeated copy and pasted. There is a lot wrong with this terrible novel especially how she hates how he sexually assaults her but she doesn't try to leave him or actually hate him.I guess if you to china and you sexually assault girls or r*pe them over and over again they will end up falling in love with you. I mean thats the vibe I get from this novel and every other novel with a girl male lead in it. correction any type of character as the lead.

ALMOST FORGOT! He nearly kills her by choking her to death when she says he can't control her life but then one chapter later when he is struggling in pain from a disease she feels bad for him and helps him. ARE YOU FCKING SERIOUS RN?
