The General Only Fears the Maiden’s Escape


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

Everyone says that General Chai’s personality is cruel and tyrannical, having beaten to death servants and that he prefers men. Even if rumors cannot be completely believed, she doesn’t want to go along with her stepmother’s social ladder climbing intentions. Although she knows that it is improper, she decides to give him a show of severity to prevent him from coming to propose marriage. But before receiving his consent, her stepmother had already made her move. Not only did she order a servant to bring muddle-headed her to the brothel, she colluded with the brothel owner to make plans for her, to let the two of them reach the stage where there’s no going back, and force her to marry.

Luckily, he knew from the start and took advantage of this to play along and help her escape from this trouble. She discovered then that he actually conducts himself in an upright and honest manner, not at all cruel and ruthless like rumors said.

Who knew that her stepmother would put her under house arrest for money, wanting to sell her to someone as a concubine. He worried about her situation, and did not hesitate at all to look after her in the nights, and even making his liking towards her known, making her realize that she had long carved the imposing and handsome him into her heart.

However, with the day of her wedding approaching, the her without freedom did not dare to hope for any results with him. Who knew that in spite of his status of a general, that in spite of criticisms, he would come to steal the bride!

A few months ago, the translator did a partial rage quit (due to reader comments) and so will only release the translation once they're done with the series. Except for chapter 1, all previously released chapters were put under a password. I'm going from memory here, since its not like I can check the latest chapter, but the story reads like a sligtly above average, but typical historical Chinese romance novel. Is it worth waiting how ever many years for it to be released? Probably not. Just pick up this... more>> story if and when the translation is complete. <<less

This novel is completely translated! The FL is a bit annoying because even when faced with love she would rather suffer than let the 'reputation' of ML be damaged. In that era obviously men could get away with anything and accepting help from a decent man should have been fine.

The whole novel us a bit rushed. But it is a happy ending.

I liked the idea of the story. A bit longer novel would have made it more enjoyable.

Definitely worth reading.

the characters are rather lacking, the pace of the story was too rushed and the story development makes little sense.

... more>>

at first the MC hates females and then after meeting the FC he finds her interesting and the next time he is almost madly in love with her.

The FC at first dislikes the MC and all of a sudden he is the most gentle and noble man in her eyes. And also she is completely helpless while the character description keeps insisting that she is strong and oh so unlike other girls....

with regard to the side characters they are either completely evil, selfish or they like the FC because she has intelligent eyes or whatsoever.

Great short story/novel. A plot that is quirky yet engaging and surprisingly romantic. The character development is fairly good with each being interesting and distinctly unique in their own way. The translations were quite decent however some areas left me wondering what was going on exactly, but it's hard to tell if this is translator or author. If the writing was a little better (adaption perhaps?) then it'd get 5 stars from me.

A sweet love story with a happy ending. Short, only nine chapters, but it keeps you reading. Five stars!

Only gripe I had with it was that the ending was too rushed. Plus I would have made him grovel much more if I was her.

He fake died in battle and if she pulled a Romeo-and-Juliet and killed herself before he came back, he would have probably deserved it.

But besides that, very nice novel.

The speed of the novel and romance is rather fast. I wish the author had spent more time on character development and the romance development between both lead.

But regardless this is a nice read cause there is only 9 chapters to read.

Originally I had put 4 star. But I changed it cause I was disappointed with the ending. Author could had done better.....
