She transmigrated into an orphan, thinking that she still had her boyfriend with her, yet in an instant, her world crashed. For the position of heir, he said, “Yao’er, why don’t you become my second wife?” A sentence destroyed her wishful thinking, causing her to end their relationship of two lives cruelly.

Imagine this

MC is reading a book in a small room, enjoying the silence.

Suddenly there is a random fly buzzing around.

... more>> Too lazy to bother to kill it, the MC instead says:

"Stop annoying me before I get angry"

Of course the fly doesn't understand it and won't stop

Seeing that her gaze turns cold:

"I warn you, you will not be able to handle the consequences of offending me. "

For a moment the fly stops. Seeing that she is satisfied. But then the fly, that was just resting for a moment, starts buzzing around again, even louder than before.

" Don't tell me that I didn't warn you. " she says in a cold voice as she stands up. After locating the fly she suddenly raises her arm and swoops it, causing the fly to spiral out of control and dissappear.

Having restored the peace in her room, she sits down and starts reading.

But after an hour of peace, it is once again disturbed by the familiar buzzing.

"Dare to offend me again and again, it seems like you are tired of living" her voice laced with some killing intent that even the insect with its limited intelligence could tell was danger. But then it noticed a pastry on the table and the fear was quickly forgotten as it's mind was filled with greed.

Yet before it could take a bite, it was caught by a pair of slender fingers.

"You have had your chances, this is the result you have brought upon urself! "

All she wanted was to read a book in peace, those that dare to distrupt it again and again, don't dare to later come complain that she is merciless!

With that in mind she threw the fly outside into a mud pool.

Yet on the next day the fly was back, with another, bigger fly following it...

Couldn't help but to think this small skit when reading the first 100 chapters. Just like small dumb flies the enemies keep bothering MC. MC doesn't properly deal with em, causing drawn out boring conflicts. There is literally nothing they can do to harm her, while MC own fighting power is through the roof. Yet instead of saving herself the hassle she just gives a small 'slap' to the enemies, making them more angry and causing them to bother her more, making the MC to give a harder 'slap' which causes them to become even angrier, bother her even more, to which she has to give a slightly harder 'slap'. Rinse and repeat. <<less

Okay at the start, got worse as it continues. Plotline is very repetitive and inconsistent. Typical OP protagonist with brainless antagonists who will all die/fail terribly with regrets for going against the female MC.

I started reading this because the summary looked interesting enough. I was expecting a cute and fluffy romance story but the story digressed from the romance to how powerful the female MC is. The summary doesn't really fit the story either: The female MC left the capital indeed for a peaceful life, but not actually intending to... more>> find a marriage partner (she's given up on relationships after the first guy). She wasn't furious at the male MC either for pretending to be an ordinary hunter and even said she would support him if wartimes ever came. The male MC didn't intentionally pretend, he just didn't want to be caught up in the politics back at the capital and was intending to live out a peaceful life in the village like the female MC; so in his mind he IS an ordinary hunter.

Tbh, I normally like OP protagonists, especially scenes that shows those who looked down on them how wrong they were. But the logic (or the lack of it) in this story just to continue the plot gets really annoying sometimes.

Spoiler

Some of these will happen quite far ahead in the story, after about c200?:

    1. The female MC owns a massive trade organisation that can cause an economical breakdown of any country at her choice, which was started in the single year before she met her boyfriend (the first guy she broke up with). She was 10 years old when she met up with the boyfriend. Unless I interpreted it incorrectly, the reasoning behind developing this organisation is because she wants to be worthy of her boyfriend (because he's an heir), but kept it a secret from him because she just wanted to help out in the background. This was confusing, because she developed the organisation for her bf when she hasn't even met him in this life?? Though, in the later chapters the reason was changed to for the sake of survival.
    2. Female MC can literally become powerful overnight. In the story, she was abducted by male MC's family from the capital but assassins sent by the ex-bf's wife caused her miscarriage. In the next chapter, this caused her to be enlightened to the fact that she herself should be powerful to protect what's important to her - therefore, she unseals her internal energy and becomes a martial artist on par with the male MC with no problems whatsoever even though she sealed her internal energy years ago because she wasn't able to control them properly.
    3. Female MC's allies under her organisation have exact same backgrounds: i.e. geniuses in a very powerful lineage but abused by concubine stepmothers who killed off their birth-mothers (with even more powerful lineages and married over with rich dowries) with the help of their jerks of fathers who practices polygamy and is hogging the dowry for the concubine's daughter (who is of course, brainless). Of course the female MC therefore helps them take back what belongs to them with her massive trade organisation. Weird thing is, her allies have always been known internationally for being one of the in-charges of her organisation while she is the hidden boss, yet to get the story going suddenly they aren't well-known anymore and the families are unaware of their identities until female MC appears to help support them in taking back the dowries.
    4. Tons of super powerful allies with all sorts of skills from her organisation will keep appearing to help the female MC with her issues. Somehow, she met them all in the first year before she met up with the boyfriend, and these allies, as female MC's elder brother and sisters, helped female MC build the organisation. The female MC will always be guilty at endangering their lives and she will always be comforted that they are helping out willingly because they love her. This conversation repeated itself everytime a new character appears. It was also never explained how the female MC met any of them beyond meeting them when she was young (9 y.o. I presume), just that they are all very powerful (martial arts/lineage) or skillful (doctor/poison/hypnotism etc) and that her organisation will always have someone with the necessary skills to tackle the problem at hand.
[collapse]

At about 500 chapters into the story (I read the raws) I realised that the plot was really repetitive already but I stuck on hoping it would get better... Unfortunately, it didn't, so I decided to drop this. I don't recommend reading beyond the MCs' marriage. <<less

A couple transmigrate into a world together. The boyfriend adapts to the social harem norms and wants to live by them, the girlfriend sticks to the 1 per rule and wants a monogamous relationship so she cuts ties with him. A really refreshing female MC with a backbone.

edit: MC smart yeah, but all the villains set to difficulty level: "super easy".

... more>>

I almost feel bad for the villains looking at how dumb the author made them. Bc I'm sure if they had a choice they too wouldn't want to be born this dumb and death-seeking.

for that reason it's a revised 2/5 for me. <<less

As someone who's read through the raws, I really liked this series at first, but gradually I grew to hate it.

The entire story is 2000+ chapters. I got through to about the 700 area before I just started skipping around to see how it ended. After a while, I just read like the last two chapters or something and was done with it.

It was just so s*upid and repetitive. And honestly, the MC kind of grew OP over night in a super ridiculous way, in more ways than one -... more>> not just her physical power, but apparently all the power she had hidden away that is "slowly" (it's very, very, very, very vaguely hinted at and then tossed casually into your face) revealed throughout the story. But honestly, it's insane to me because:

Spoiler

She's basically described as being the head of a super huge trade and spy organization that can cause the economic breakdown in EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY IN THE STORY ESSENTIALLY. LIKE WHAT? And yet, stuff still happens to her organization because ppl betray her or whatever and I just stopped caring after a while. This was a pretty big twist that was kind of ridiculous - she developed the power for her original boyfriend because she was an orphan with no standing and he was an heir, so she developed this power secretly so she could stand tall next to him. Then, ya know, she left the capital after he was like "be my second wife lol".

What blows my mind even more is that people know that she eventually has some connection to this super massive trade organization because the top heads who are the figureheads for the group all are friends with her and spoil and dote on her but everyone still thinks "lol let's fight her anyways" like wtf????

Also what is the point of a super massive trade organization if you still can't deal with one s*upid side character until 500 chapters later? Like she has all this power but it's essentially... useless.

[collapse]

Also, the MC/ML frequently vow to "deal" with people in one chapter, and then, what do they do?

Wait another 158064 chapters later to deal with them, giving the other person to do a bunch of s*upid crap that will inconvenience them in the future.

Honestly. The author obviously wanted to just draw this steaming pile of crap out so they could idk, make more money or something off whatever platform they were selling their chapters on, because these contrived and s*upid plots could pretty much all be skipped if they had just dealt with people sooner. But nah fam it's clear that the audience wants more contrived and s*upid drama and petty fighting that wasn't really interesting at all.

Don't waste your time. <<less

Even though I dislike stories with endless illogical cannon fodder characters, I thought I could last at least until the plot of the story progressed a bit more...

I was wrong.

This is awful. Completely unbearable. Pretty much every person in town other than the MC, MC's friend and ML are 5-year old cannon fodder with no ability for higher cognition. The story is just one endless "X cannon fodder pops out of woodwork to accuse the MC of random sh*t with completely irrational thinking" => "everyone in town suddenly believes in... more>> X cannon fodder for no reason" => "MC shows up and face slaps cannon fodder" => "townspeople all blame cannon fodder" => "cannon fodder hates MC more and tries a new scheme."

Repeat x 1000 and you get this story. <<less

It's a very good novel. The MC is not the usual "I am so great, I will kill them all for looking at me wrong" kind of person. She seems tough and indifferent at first but slowly you see that is because of the initial betrayal at the start of the novel and she was emotionally hurt. In reality, she is very kind and caring, not to menion amazingly talented in doing business due to her natural abilities and skills learned in her past life - cooking, wine-tasting and similar.... more>> The male MC is very good too. He is not the usual Psyhcopath that tends to appear in Chinese novels with female leads. He doesn't hate women just for the heck of it and choose the MC becuase he grew to like her and her attitude to life. His backstory is pretty brutal as well and it shows that he is very indifferent to life because of it - not just women for some insane plot backstory reason. Though when he does go crazy, he can be really sadistic to the point he makes his own side uncomfortable. Even then he cares about not involving innocents. The characters also slowly get background reveals and it's done pretty nicely. The occasional comedy is done right as well. I like the slow pacing as it suits this kind of novel very much. All in all an amazing read.

Spoiler

Asking others who are ahead in the novel, why is there a "Rape" Tag? I hope the female lead isn't the one who suffers? Hopefully not the cute friends or innocent people either. Can anyone tell with a spoiler tag? She is too nice of a person and it would be hard to see it happen to her.

With a little more skill, much better pacing, and characters that acted like they weren't 5 year-old children, this could have been an interesting story.

The main characters all seem to have interesting backstories, and the author keeps you on your toes and guessing. Unfortunately, these brief glimpses are overshadowed by the moronic cast of "villains, " the ham-fisted way they are presented, and the lack of main characters making good on any of their threats. I kid you not, this actually happened:

A villainous girl has the unfortunate habit of climbing... more>> over the male MC's walls and going into his house. The second time, he explicitly warns her that should she do it again, she wouldn't want to know the consequences. But when it happens again, he just warns her again.

This failure to follow up on any of their threats makes the main characters the least intimidating people in the novel. We're told how the supporting and villain characters believe from the look in their eyes that they will do unspeakable horrors, but we never see any of it. And, as should be painfully obvious from the situation described above, the instigating reasons for any of the drama are ridiculous.

The pacing is another issue. It jumps from trotting to galloping and back again in seconds. A conversation about building a workroom and then boom! It's done. No romance for 90 chapters, and then boom! Our main leads are engaged. The MC thinking about hiring people? Boom! Five people from her past turn up with no explanation and she doesn't need to hire anymore. An embroidery test at the MC's embroidery house in the captial? Boom! One sentence and we've suddenly arrived at the embroidery house and the test is already happening.

These are just some of the few examples. The lack of pacing and the poor judgement on where to spend time and effort in the prose, coupled with the almost total lack of description (which doesn't matter so much if it's a mountain, but the capital city? Come on.) leaves this feeling bland and rushed.

Oh, and I forgot to add: While I appreciate the effort of the translators and rely on them to read the story as I know zero Chinese, I feel like they really require a proof reader because there are some very obvious spelling mistakes and also sentences that don't make any sense.

And another thing: It's impossible to tell how old the characters are. It seems like the main female character is around 16 years old (in terms of physical appearance - she transmigrated so she is actually older than that) but I would say one of the principle villains in the village is only twelve. How amazing that a ~20 year old could "beat" a twelve year old girl in a battle of morals/wits. At least it gives credibility to how laughable childish the villains plans are. <<less

I agree with paputsza; so far all the antagonists seem to have extreme autism.

No, seriously though, the author keeps using the same 4-5 recurring people going after the MC chapter after chapter just to increase chapter count. I'm on chapter 142 atm whereas it should be more like chapter 20.

This is an okay read but expect your usual cold on the outside but warm on the inside female lead.

Oh, and paputsza, the female lead is not teaching that chick all her techniques because she's an ungrateful b*tch. It's one thing... more>> not to teach others just because they won't kiss your ass, but if you go out of your way to spend your time and effort to teach someone who is selfish and unreasonable then you're just an idiot.

EDIT 1:

I am now at chapter 343 and much of the same has continued. Everyone who goes against the male and female lead do idiotic stuff that they never would have done before. At this point it is my belief that they are infectious and are transmitting some kind of disease. <<less

Finally dropping this story because there is nothing about it that holds my interest. Everyone's entitled to their opinions but reading through some of the 4 & 5 stars they even admit the GLARING DEFICIENCIES:

1. BRAINLESS CHARACTERS the villains are too s*upid to believably live and they are incapable of the basic human instinct of self preservation. Most of the story focuses on them and how they get shown up by the FL. FL seems to be following most of the stereotypical historical transmigrated super OP tropes. Just because you... more>> humiliate uneducated poor people with disgusting morals doesn't make you smart and morally upright. One aspect that made this story unique was the fact that a couple transmigrated together, but that was thrown away by the author after the first few chapters.

2. BORING yes the first few chapters are okay and seem to fulfill our expectations, but dozens of chapters after and the primary focus is face slapping, secondary focus is side character interaction, third focus is trade, etc... Romance is extremely background and quite frankly boring. I personally like slow build romance because it is fluffy and realistic. Somehow the entire premise of the story is set up to provide my ideal slow romance, but the writing is so bland that it manages to miss the mark entirely.

3. PLOT ARMOR makes an already boring story more boring. See other reviews for more. <<less

This would've been quite decent if only the villains are not all set to be highly ret*rded and extreme masochists. Unfortunately, no, they just keep coming back up with the same approaches even after being slapped every now and then, resilient just like c*ckroaches. Not to mention the MC & ML reaction that would just let everything slide. They literally would only give warnings to the people who want to kill them. How gracious (and impossibly dumb) !

Not to mention the number of plot holes...

Like how MC originally wanted to buy some s*aves to run her business, yet found her old retainers in the s*ave house. Interestingly, her former business did not collapse and those extremely talented and resourceful people were just happened to be captured by the s*ave trader..... why?

I know we should not comment on the translator but the editing and grammar can really kill the readers. Translating requires more research to find the correct terms to replace the Chinese counterpart to make the story flow.

But anyway the faults of this story do not lie with the translator but mainly on the author.

The synopsis/summary is very deceitful and paint a totally different picture to what readers expect from the story.

There is a major plot hole right to the start of the story and it does not make any... more>> sense.
Spoiler

The main character and her boyfriend transmigrated to this world. One became an “orphan girl” and the other the son of the Marquis. How did they find each other in this vast world and potentially with their faces already changed?

Okay fair enough they found each other after transmigration they found each other a year later and spent five years together. Our main character was a very beautiful woman and absolutely talented in her past life and this life. There was no reason for her boyfriend to give her up for the sake of power especially with how intensely he loved her and admired her for everything she was.

If the main character really loved him, why would she hid her secret from him? Especially since they were both transmigrators to this world and lovers. Also how was it possible she kept it a secret from him since they were together for the last five years?

She seemed to have given up him very quickly as well.

[collapse]

Now for the first one hundred chapters if you could make it through that repetitive pile of garbage I have to praise your patience. I even tried to think of plausible excuse for the author and our main character.

Spoiler

The two village girls and their mothers serving as the preliminary antagonists were absolute a farce. Villagers could be very thick skinned and have a warped view of the world due to the environment they have grown up in. So it was excusable why they kept coming back to haunt our female lead.

However it makes no sense whatsoever for our female lead to be so lenient towards them. It makes no sense how after their plans had been foiled again and again, villagers still kept believing the rumours they spread again and again. It was simply atrocious writing. The characters also had personality conflicts. I do not believe a person who had her mother sent to jail would suddenly act high and mighty and grab the female lead by her wrist and not fear the consequences. Next moment after being shamed in the public she behaved like a mouse and begging for mercy. Only for her to repeat the same crap again.

Theft normally leads to more than 3 months in jail and 10 heavy sticks to the bottom.

[collapse]

The author is one of those with limited ideas and trying to milk the readers for all their worth by writing short chapters and without decent details and interactions between the characters.

The romance is just as bad...

Spoiler

It seems our female lead is an easy girl. All the Male lead had to do were the following:-

  • Selling game hunted from the forest for less than it is worth to the female lead.
  • Collecting grapes from the forest for the female lead.
  • Causing trouble for the female lead by entangling her with one of his admirers.
  • Playing a game of Go.
  • Somehow managed to hold a conversation with a sophisticated and intelligent modern era woman. Really don’t get how a General/Prince who spends most his time on the battlefield and in a backward society can match our female lead.
  • Oh and by being a man who wouldn’t mind walking into the kitchen... errr most of the chefs in inns, restaurants, big families, imperial kitchen are all Male...

Okay anyway I’m alright being engaged with you. Can the quest requirement be any simpler?

[collapse]

I respect the translators for making an effort to translate their novel but seriously it is really not worth it.

Strongly advised to avoid this novel. <<less

Started strong, devolved into Xianxia stereotype-cardboard-cutouts.

Grammar: 1/5

Writing: 1/5

... more>> Story: 0.5/5

Update as of Chapter 26: Grammar is getting worse. The story is getting by on illogical plot devices. And boy, are the characters beyond redemption, extremes only. Either they really like the MC or really hate the MC. The villagers are portrayed as absolute f*cking idiots who can't think for themselves for the most part. I can't bring myself to like this style of storytelling where everyone but the MC and a select few are braindead to make the story convenient.

I was enjoying this in the early chapters (1~6) before it devolved into simple stereotypes being brandished left and right with no apparent reason nor rhyme. The grammar is pretty bad, but it is understandable and easy enough to get through. The writing is really bad, barely giving you anything aside from a brief summary of a situation, bare-bones dialogue, and quick changes between scenes that almost have you reeling from the whiplash. The story, unfortunately, thus far has been nothing but stereotypical.

Not a recommended read by any means unless you have nothing else to read. <<less

I don't know. I'm not sure the main chararacter is likable. She doesn't teach people who "are greedy" according to her judgement. The main antagonist is completely unbelievable unless you think of her as having undiagnosed autism. Like imagine getting food with a friend and that friend says your order looks better when the orders come and so they grab your plate and huddle over it without asking. This is essentially how the foil character acts. Defeating her isn't that important to me, because she's trying to steal bigger mushrooms... more>> and embroidery techniques compared to the norm in these stories where other girls are trying to beat and murder the protagonist and steal her man. As an artist I really don't care if someone wants my techniques anyways. Going out of my way to hide techniques from someone because they're kind of rude to me isn't something I'd do. So the protagonist is hard for me to like, and I feel like that's the main feature the author is trying to give off. <<less

Enjoyed the 2 chap intro enough to brave the MTL, and here's what you're in for:

It starts small, with all the drama you expect in a Chinese historical romance packed into a little village, but then it starts to balloon as the MC uses her modern skills to make her life a little more comfortable. No spoilers, but slowly, circumstances are revealed on both sides of the romance that take them to the capital and the heights of power and intrigue. The good stuff includes... more>> all the things you expect from a novel power couple plus genuine love, trust, and monogamy. The only bad stuff isn't even truly bad: almost everything takes a while to develop, with the only exceptions being some reveals so tropey they feel almost gratuitous, but since the results are spiteful and terrible to the enemy, I still love it. Enjoy with confidence! <<less

I really loved this novel in the beginning chapters. True it had it issues but I loved how grounded the MC and ML were and how they dealt with situations calmly and had a bottom line that should not be trampled. However, as the story progresses the groundedness is lost and the novel falls into the bad characters writing that was observed in the initial chapters AKA brainless characters that could not take a hint to save their lives and falls into cliches to make the leads fall into... more>> the power fantasy that all their decisions always in the right no matter what. It was sad. I loved this novel because it had some unique elements I was dying for from other novels of similar types but with time it too followed the bad writing. I rate it a 3 because honestly the first chapters were 5 star all through inspite of character and writing issues but latter chapters after

Spoiler

she is revealed to be a princess

[collapse]

Know this is not a problem but it allows the aforementioned power fantasy brainless to occur when caution and risk based decisions where the key things that drew me into it

it goes down from there (2 stars or below) because suddenly all the peripheral characters want to oppose the leads for very s*upid reasons when logic and rationale dictates otherwise

It is also insulting to the female lead because it does not matter how strong she is, she has to be a damsel in distress. Funny thing is that it only worked effectively 1 time and she got that she would train hard to never let that happen again and it is even commented that she has the same strength as her husband! But the story threw this development to make her a damsel everytime a new threat arrived to emphasise how threatening they were. It rings hollow

RANT Incoming. What made me stop reading was the disgust I felt the when the MC best friend's widowed cousin was introduced. The amount of artificial bullsh*t that was crafted to make her a brain dead woman chasing ML is downright criminal! Her family never tells her outright the importance of MC and ML in thier community (something that is well known to everyone there! If someone had just told her outright, the arc would not have happened. And Oh my god God disgust when the supposed MODERN MC falls for a superstition regarding widowed women and the story justified this gross superstition. I was Furious! I live in a culture that has gross superstitious towards widows and how they are even blamed for thier husband's death and not given the compassion and care they truly need at that time. This widow made 1 mistake that was justifiable ; she was attracted to a lively scene even when she was told not to go because she has been in mourning. Rather that given information and told the full picture, she is mocked and rebuffed and the story is desperately to make her a brain dead character who we are all supposed to laugh at and feel justified when she gains her comeuppance. f*ck that! Rant Over

You may give it a try but be aware that it goes down from here <<less

I can't quite describe how bad this series is... Some series are so bad that they are actually good. Unfortunately for this one, it just stays bad.

Null dimensional characters are a standard fare in bad series of this genre, but the amount of screen space that they get here is actually unbelievable. To give you an example how bad the filler/plot progresses to stretch out the series length, let me suggest how a revelation is made:

"You have such a shallow reason for hating me, and the move you made against... more>> me is really vicious for such a petty reason. It is also very s*upid, and you have honestly tried to hurt me for long enough. So, let me give you one more chance and not do anything to you, so that the series can have some more filler. Oh and also, you aren't smart enough to learn so might as well hope that you learn."

This is writing so shoddy, that it is not even amateurish. Close confidants and mystery organizations are suddenly introduced and you are expected to know them very well in a chapter or two. The male protagonist is supposed to be super doting and what not, but he essentially never does anything to help out the female when she is targeted by brainless bimbos. Female lead has the ability to cook, embroider, maintain a farm, make wine, advanced business management skills, tremendous HR... Why do I even bother listing them out?

At one point of time, I wanted to rate this a 2 just due to the romance between the leads, as it is actually semi-decent. But I then felt that the other parts and poor writing in this series is so bad that the romance is completely overshadowed. And not to mention, all of these support characters are just brought into the series with pre existing relations. The writer never bothered to even try!

When some antagonist is brainless, you expect them to be beaten within maybe 20-30 chapters. But here... It takes 200+ chapters. That directly translates to how terrible the pacing and the general story line is.

THIS IS NOT MANGO APPROVED. <<less

Interesting idea but boring execution. The characters are all very cardboard cut out with little depth, even the MC and ML. Id probably like it more if the antagonists were a little smarter and the MC had to struggle a little more. I hate to throw around 'mary sue' since plenty of male main characters are over powered but this MC would be boring regardless of gender. She waltzes through life like it's made of candy!
