The Fierce Illegitimate Miss


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

Yu Linglong is the shu (born of a concubine) daughter in a general’s family. Since her mother was only a tribute dancer, her position is the lowest of the low. She used to live with her mother outside the father’s residence, and they only received some monthly money from him. He didn’t bother seeing them. But when her mother dies, she moves into the general’s residence.

The general is a very irresponsible and violent man. He doesn’t really get attached to women, just letting his lust dictate his actions. His wife is a jealous woman, who killed one of his previous concubines, because he doted on her too much. She similarly wants to get rid of Yu Linglong, in part to vent her frustrations over her husband’s cheating habits.

Because the sixth miss – the general’s legitimate daughter, was bitten by a snake, she needs detoxification. The cure was apparently getting poisoned by scorpions, to fight one poison with another. But since she’s already weak, they decided it would be better if she drank the blood of someone poisoned by scorpions instead. The general’s madam naturally decided to use Yu Linglong’s blood. During the process of getting bitten by the scorpion, the original timid Yu Linglong died of fright (and maybe poison? it’s never made clear). Then Yu Mei takes over her body.

Yu Mei is a modern woman. She was some mafia boss, so she’s very capable with fighting and overbearing attitude. She died because the man she fell in love with betrayed her and killed her. So she doesn’t trust easily afterward.

Since she took over Yu Linglong’s body, she refuses to adapt to the circumstances of a lowly illegitimate daughter, and uses her violence to fight for a peaceful life, where no one will challenge her and plot against her. Basically, she beats them up into submission. In the meantime, she acquires a tail – a very persistent prince, who only seems to stick to her harder, the colder she treats him. Did ancient men have such heavy tastes, she wonders.

Erm... I don't even know what exactly to say at this point. I resumed reading the mtl version from chapter 108-144. I'm dropping this because it's no longer interesting.

I like strong FL. Like physically strong FL, someone who can defend and fight for herself and that's exactly what our FL is. BUT. She's too violent for me. You might say 'duh??? She's a mafia boss from her past life?' I GET IT OKAY? But she literally solves everything through violence. She only toned down around what? Chapter 130+? Lol. She's... more>> also capable of scheming and outwitting her family but she mostly (by this I mean 8/10) solves everything through violence and intimidation. There were times when I just want to smack her and tell her to think more. There were situations where she made it worst because she's too hot tempered. She only realized it after she's already part of something bigger—and there's no way out.

For our ML, he's unrealistically and ridiculously devoted that I also thought he's a masochist. I don't really have much problem with except that he appeals plain to me. Lacks personality. Meh. <<less

I read further into the raws, but I'm not going to spoil. I just want to say, I got the impression that the author read one too many revenge novels with female leads who have to speak their way out of trouble and trap their enemies with their wit, to the point that she (assuming it's a female author) got sick and tired and decided to vent her feelings in this novel...

It's highly unrealistic that a weak-bodied girl would be able to beat up people with martial training, it's even... more>> more unlikely that she won't be jailed, but just let go to run rampant. But I didn't read the novel expecting realism. To me, it's a pure venting tool. An example of 'What if...': what if things could be solved swiftly with a few fists, instead of dragging on and on in a fight of who's more eloquent. What if the lady simply beat up her enemies and lived with a light heart. Wouldn't it feel nice? I've had similar such thoughts when reading other novels, leading me to daydream about a violent badass heroine. That's why I was so satisfied with this novel. <<less

Another transmigration story, but this is no Princess Wei Yang. At least by RAW chapter 54 this story is less darker than most with how as the summary put it, the MC Yu LingLong didn't use silver tongue like most MC of this genre but her fist. In fact she barely talk about justifying her action, she is like punch first and speak later.

As of now this story seems to lean to comedy rather than political intrigue, there's no dull moment of how Yu LingLong spends her day not taking... more>> her family's attempt to straighten her out. She certainly didn't waste her time to put fear of God in her family. Her relationhip with Male Lead and her maids is especially entertaining.
  • There's nothing romantic about her first meeting with ML, she beat him up but it seems he is a masochist so she got a stalker.
  • Her loyal maid *a staple in this genre for the poor young miss* at first is a timid mouse whose first act whenever her miss is bullied is either throwing herself to be meat shield or suggesting them to run away from home. A dozen chapter later, the angry general dad come and her first reaction is to grab a wooden bat and handed it to Yu Linglong as weapon. It says a lot of how good this girl adapt to her new miss, Yu Linglong is very amused.
  • Her other maid, Ling'er is smarter and come later. She saw ML playing music to woo her miss right in their front yard, her reaction is complimenting the scenery + handsome guy is more beautiful than painting before coming back in and says "Miss, it's the prince again!" as if a prince is no different than a persistent salesman
All in all, this is a hilarious light reading... however three stars because it's quite unrealistic a girl so unruly in body that never work out *she is a skilled fighter but that body is a weak young miss* can beat

her general dad so easily

and she is a bit too reliant to violence so far. Not exactly a masterpiece but OK for light reading. <<less

I love the fact that the main protagonist is straight forward and does not f** around. She has spunk. She is a much more believable modern person that transmigrated with the gangster background than all those others. It is more inticing than the repetitive carbon copies of "multi-talented and attractive yet cold and scheming witch"

That is all I have to say about this.

It is refreshing and much more relatable and also understandable.

You ever sit through reading yet another intricate verbal sparring match thinking "does anyone ever really think this hard or care?" or have to wait through 200+ chapters of excessively elaborate revenge that never really shows up, while wondering "why didn't she just stab them? It would be faster and more satisfying"?

We've all been there, and this is the novel for us!

A harem issue that would normally take 50 chapters of well staged scheming, the big wife not feeding the poor, concubine-born daughter, is handled in a moment when the... more>> MC decides to beat the crap out the ones who have been starving her and steal the food. You'll feel like cheering! There's a wonderful, gladiatorial rush for vengeance. This is going to be bloody, and violent, and no one will be spared. I think that's my favorite part, that the male characters, so often the real cause for the harem drama they conveniently overlook, are punished as well.

My main complaint is that the translations are fractured across so many translators, it's difficult to read smoothly and continuously. <<less

This novel was really suited to my tastes, she's the kind of female that gives no face and just acts, she's extremely blunt and doesn't care about the consequences at all. In better words, she uses her fists in almost all situations. I've read so many of the female transmigration novels and get sick of the female characters enduring the bullying but get their results in the long run, this female character, however, does not endure at all, she gives them a slap and sends them straight to hell. This is an extremely satisfying novel, though it is very unrealistic the female lead has the power to be so physically strong, she's smart and gives no face to anyone- princess, prince or even the emperor.

As for the male lead, it's nice that he doesn't fall in love right away with her. Although he isn't exactly my top male lead, he's not bad and at least cares a lot for the female lead. However, once their relationship does actually start, it gets a little boring and loses the spark they had in the very beginning.

Oh the 2nd male lead, poor guy... I think the author could've done a better job with this guy, but what can you say, first come first serve.

What I didn't like about this novel was that the ending was really rushed and not as satisfying or tying the loose ends as it should of been, everything just kind of happened with a boom and then it ended. I felt like some things weren't explained well and were left confusing, and some side characters that popped up once and twice were made into a large plot. Yeah, I didn't really like the ending that much.

Overall, for a story that has 173 chapters and not 3000 chapters, this is a pretty good novel to spend your time on and is better than the majority of the female transmigration novels.

If you're sick of intricate, badly written plots of revenge, don't worry.

MC here solves everything with her fists.

In a world where violence is a good method to get your way, laws against assault probably don't exist, and 99% of problems can be solved with a punch to the face, one woman will beat everyone up until she gets her way.

It's a good catharsis to drama filled revenge stories.

I don't have any gripes on this story, I like it a lot actually. The character reminds me of Shi Sheng, not the scheming MC type but still violent type.
My only rant here is that: I *hate* when translators gangb**g a novel (I use that term when different translators take the same novel at once, making the releases confusing and incongruent). This novel has been translated for over 3 years now (I remember seeing this story when I just started reading webnovels, probs about two years ago), and you... more>> tell me it still only has 15 chapters? Why is it that most of the time good novels are always being picked up by bad translators? Can't we just have nice things for once? <<less

The first major arc of this novel is incredibly fun, especially if you've read a lot of reincarnation/transmigration courtyard scheming and revenge-type fiction. Where the typical MC from those types of stories present a very different persona to the world compared to what they're really like, and use schemes within schemes to fight against their traitorous family members, the MC here doesn't give a damn and solves her problems with pure naked force and violence. She doesn't even hesitate to beat up her newfound family members and force them into... more>> submission. As every plot set up by her scheming sisters, stepmother or unruly servants were resolved with decisive and brutal violence, I was wondering how the novel could possibly keep up this level of intensity.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed. As soon as the focus shifted away from dealing with her family members, the novel loses its unique identity and really stops doing anything different from the countless other web novels in its genre. Despite the Strong to Stronger tag,

as far as I can tell, the MC never actually gets stronger. When she starts encountering people who are stronger than her, it doesn't seem to occur to her to try to improve her skills, so instead she just gets manhandled, kidnapped and just has to wait for the ML to rescue her. Very disappointing.

What I expected was a novel about an ass kicking MC with no fear of repercussions, and I got... around 50 chapters of that. Maybe that would be OK if what replaced it was as good, but the main plot just isn't very good, the antagonist is flat and uninteresting and the ending is genuinely awful. Massive letdown. <<less

EDIT: put the first part of my review when I had only read up until ch 15 in the bottom spoiler. Feel free to skip it if you want and just read the second half of my review from after I finished the story.

... more>>

I've finally found it. The story I've been waiting for.

Is it cliche and unrealistic? Yes, 100%. Am I loving every minute of it? You bet your ass I am.

The tag line for this story should be "do you ever just want to stop being nice? Do you ever just want to go apeshit?" Because that's basically what this story is LOL.

Recently, I've been reading a lot of stories that have a large amount of petty drama in it. It's frustrating to sit and read as the MC gets torn down only for her to finally get her revenge like 100-1000 chapters later (lol.). My most recent read was Pampered Consort of the Fragrant Orchard and god what a frustrating and annoying read that was. Sooo much dumb petty drama and sooo much of the heroine being "I'm so cool sticks n stones may break my bones but words can't hurt me look how cool I am I'm just a big fat giant doormat, come step on me, I love it when people step all over me, I won't even get mad because I just LOOOVE getting stepped on -"

Anyways. You get it.

But here it is. The story you'll enjoy if you just wanna read about an MC mercilessly beating the ever living God out of everybody around her.

And yes. That was what I was looking for.

Furthermore, the story is short at only 173 chapters, which I incredibly appreciate. A story like this with little plot but mostly fighting isn't something that could be stretched out that long. 173 chapters is fine imo, although 173 is probably still pushing it considering the lack of plot 15 chapters in lmao.

I've only read to chapter 15 and I'm enjoying it so much I had to write a review. She just... literally every time somebody looks at her wrong she'll just beat the sh*t out of them.


Although the plot of story (or lack thereof lol) so far really only qualifies at a 2-3 star area but the sheer enjoyment I'm getting out of it bumped it up to 5 stars.

Hopefully the rest of the raws don't disappoint! 8D



Okay I finished it. I knocked it down to 4 stars. As expected, the story begins to become draggy after a while. The ML and MC don't get together until like.... maybe 20 or 30 chapters until the ending, which I find kind of ridiculous for a story that's only 173 chapters long.

The MC denies the ML for way too long imo. She just acts like a huge bit*h to him the majority of the time, and after a while it stops being interesting and just annoying.

I did knock it down a point because yeah - it got really draggy after a bit. Also, I hated the ending. I thought the ending was the worst and way too rushed. To me, it was like, the author said "Okay I've gotten this far, I'm bored, let's just end it" and that was that. Then, it ended. A bunch of loose ends never ended up getting tied up or they were very hastily tied up.

And now that I've finished this, I should forewarn people right now. This story is definitely pretty violent. I'm not bothered by it, but yeah, others might be. I mean the body count in this 173 chapter long story is kind of insane lmao.


She ruins the reputation of nearly every single person in her family's house, save for I think one of the brothers and that's only because he was smart and was like "peace out" and ran off.

She killed the eldest son by beating him to death with her father's whip, the second son ran off to save his own skin, the third son was taken away by his mother when she eloped, her father died being bitten by scorpions, her second sister became a nun (the sister of the brother who ran off, the only smart pair LMAO), her third sister she sold to a brothel where she was gang r*ped and completely slashed up before freezing to death, her fifth sister she ruined her reputation and then arranged her to be married to a butcher, her sixth sister (the legitimate daughter) was humiliated in front of people and beaten so hard her teeth came out and then holed herself up because nobody would marry her. She beat the mother a bunch of times and then poisoned her with the same poison she used to kill the grandmother.

As for the concubines, one of them eloped with a servant, and then the other one our MC helped out at first but when she turned on our MC, our MC arranged for her to be discovered by the General with another man. He then kicked her pregnant ass out of the house, and eventually she was beaten and her child was about to be born and she went to a medical center. After that tho she was never seen again, even tho she like swore revenge lmao.

Literally when she married out, there was nobody left in the entire house. Even her fifth sister had already been married off to the butcher.

Then there's the fact that she beat people so hard that she knocked their teeth out sometimes, she stabbed a bunch of needles, some of them hitting bone, into a s*ave girl who was watching the house under the Crown Prince's orders, she also arranged for the Crown Princess to be caught sleeping with a guard in front of all the other princes and princesses, she also had one of the girls - Yang Yunzhen I think?? - literally burned to death in front of her brother Yang Huanian because she kept scheming against Shi Huiru, who was a naive but true friend to our MC. Our MC was hella pissed when she was murdered under the machinations of Yang Yunzhen and ultimately had her burned to death by dousing her with oil and letting the fire burn her, forcing her brother to watch helplessly from the sidelines. And then she let the brother live cus she promised Shi Huiru she'd let him live, but he was like dead inside after that.

She also destroyed the entire Feng family, starting with the son and then ruining the rest of the family. I think the son had to walk on barbed wire iirc and he had his fingers cut off and sent to his father as a threat. She also extorted the entire family for literally all their money lmao.

There's more. Trust me, I swear to god somebody was getting their ass handed to them every single chapter. It was insane lol


The ML is not my favorite, I thought him too frivolous and annoying but after they get together and I heard his life story, I did have a bit more pity for him. After she accepts him she becomes WAYYY better too. It's too bad she couldn't have accepted him a little earlier on....... lol.

As for the second ML, I didn't like him. I didn't like him from the beginning, and I didn't like him at the end.

My biggest gripe was the ending. It was just so rushed. I really disliked it. If it weren't for the journey being mostly enjoyable, I would have knocked it down more stars.

The overarching plot of this is kind of s*upid too. I felt like it was supposed to be more hashed out, but I really think the author just got bored/tired/whatever and just decided to hastily finish the story, plot be damned.

That being said, it's short, and it's a quick read. I still enjoyed reading it and honestly, it was pretty satisfying to finally read a story where the heroine just beats everybody up, logic, laws and morality all aside and tossed out the window.

She does get a bit more restrained in later chapters and isn't constantly beating people up every chapter, but when she does retaliate, boy does she retaliate.

Ultimately, despite it's shortcomings, it was still an amusing read for me. I'd only recommend it if you have time, you're bored of just reading crafty palace dramas and want to read about someone going absolutely apesh*t against her opponents. <<less

Mafia boss lady gave up everything for love only to be betrayed in the end. As a result, her soul transmigrates to the past as an illegitimate daughter of dancer and a one night stand with a general. I can't quite say that I like this MC. She pretty much solves everything with her fists and violence, which fits her mafia boss personality. However, there are several things that the author plotted that made her completely out of character. MC is a selfish person and can calculate the downfall of... more>> her entire clan, and yet she does save 2 people at different times for absolutely no benefit what so ever. These incident only end up causing problems for her in the end, and seem to be just thrown in as plot fodder by the author.

The MC doesn't care about anyone, much less love until about the last 20 chapters or so. The ML is ok, but he really doesn't get much air time and is just there occasionally to finally give the MC some romance towards the end.

The MC was a thug in her past life, and in the new life she continues down the cruel thug-like life once again with gathering cronies and creating another underworld type of life. Overall, it's a meh story with a happy ending, but very badly plotted scenes. It's great that it's a short story, so I can just mark it as done and soon to be forgotten, because I'm certain I'll forget about this by tomorrow. There's not many chapters, but most of the chapters seem long. If you're extremely bored, give this story a try to read a very untypical MC and ML. <<less

LOL. This FL is unlike any leads in a reincarnated/transmigrated novels I’ve ever read!! She breaks all norms about how a female at that era should act and just acts violently towards anyone who dares to cross her! It’s stupefying and very satisfying. I’m only on chapter 22, so there’s no romance yet as we’re still setting up the stage, but I can only imagine it will get better from here. And hopefully we get more characterization than just violence.

A mafia boss transmigrates into the body of a concubine's daughter mistreated by the rest of the household.

Forget subtlety or schemes -- all problems will be solved with violence!

... more>> Review:

So far, I have yet to see anything that distinguishes this series from other black-bellied reincarnator stories, other than the fact that the MC just physically beats up anyone who wrongs her.

There's a lot of suspension of belief going on -- you have to ignore how her sudden 180-degree personality change and socially-unacceptable actions are simply feared and respected.

I'll keep reading this for now and update my review later. <<less
