The Legend of Chu Qiao: Division 11’s Princess Agent

Description

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

Chu Qiao was known as Agent 005 within the Secret Service’s 11th Division in her former life. She was locked up in the Secret Service’s prison as she was framed. After she successfully broke out from prison, she sacrificed her life bravely to preserve the Secret Service by defusing a bomb meant to wipe them out.

After her demise, she was magically transported back in time to the Xia Dynasty to start a new life, where she assumed the identity of an 8-year-old female servant. In order to help Yan Xun, the Prince of Yan Bei, escape, she lived in the imperial palace for eight years along with him. In the process, they helped each other to become stronger such that they could rebel against the Xia Empire and return to the territory of Yan Bei.

The first half of the novel depicts vividly how the two characters go through thick and thin, hand in hand – Chu Qiao helping Yan Xun to achieve his dreams and Yan Xun’s love towards Chu Qiao. However, the two of them start to drift apart due to their conflicting personalities – Chu Qiao having a kind hearted nature and Yan Xun having the airs of a prince: arrogant and boisterous.

Chu Qiao eventually leaves Yan Xun and ends up together with Zhuge Yue, who had always fancied her all along. The two of them eventually become recognised as the famous Queen of Beauty and the King of the Green Sea, establishing a prosperous, long-standing and stable dynasty. The old monarchy system was undoubtedly and easily scrapped; the new Xia Empire, helmed by the two of them, rose from the verge of its downfall like a phoenix from the ashes!

Read up to Ch 22, and I have to say I'm utterly baffled by the story. While the story line is interesting, the execution is just plain confusing. MC's early life is was nicely done, except it wasn't quite clear how she first died. The abruptness of her new child body in a different world/time was a bit abrupt as well. The viciousness of her new world where nobilities prey on s*ave children and where might is right is sad and tragic. However, from where the new life begins, the... more>> storyline gets really choppy and just plain confusing. From a group of s*ave children where she is now the last one, and then suddenly becoming a favored s*ave of 4th Prince, scheming with some other noble Yan Xun, I really don't understand what's going on. Not much is explained about the MC's personality or goals. It's assumed that she's sticking around for revenge purposes, but not quite clear. With her skills, she could have really just slit everyone's throats in the middle of the night. So why is she sticking around? In addition, maybe reading the summary here has thrown me off because it makes it seems there are 2 love interests? Both guys don't quite to seem have much redeeming qualities. Zhuge Yue, seems like a spoiled vicious noble capable of killing children for sport, and while Yun Xun participates in similar fashion publically--he may be hiding ulterior motives. Both don't seem very romantic or even redeemable characters thus far. Not sure if I can recommend this novel. Maybe I'll return and marathon it once more if there are more chapters, but too much of this story was off putting. <<less

This story was heartwrenchingly sad - broke my heart and made me cry like a baby. The end was just so bittersweet.

I see many similarities between this novel and Bu Bu Jing Xin, except that this one doesn't end in tragedy

I was blown away by the blockbuster 2017 tv drama, Princess Agents. The amazing fight scenes with Zanilla Zhao, the graphic violence/cruelty in a s*ave-owning aristocratic society, and the inherent power of a lowly s*ave girl with heart and strength who is true to her friends - made a lasting impression on me. It was very different from the other female protagonist chinese historical dramas I had seen. I loved it.

Oddly, the drama only filmed half of the book. Because of the abrupt ending in the drama, I went to... more>> the online translations available at the time:

    • Pinayatsunshinestate's blog translations of the chapters where the heroine and hero meet again, after the drama ended
    • Yunshengw's blog recaps of the novel in summary
    • Spring breeze's translation of the lake scene and immediate aftermath
    • Sueleesunshine's blog translations of the engagement and marriage chapters!!!!
    • Ninja Reflection's blog translations of the final chapters
There are also some incomplete but stilted translations available elsewhere. Basically, from what I can tell from these piecemeal translations,
Spoiler

although there is there is blood, war and betrayal by others, the hero lives and becomes the king of another country, she marries him, they take over the world and live happily ever after.

[collapse]

The description above says, "The two of them eventually become recognised as the famous Queen of Beauty and the King of the Green Sea, establishing a prosperous, long-standing and stable dynasty." Happy ending. Perfect.

A friend read the entire book in hard copy in Chinese, and said it was excellent.

The drama and book are different, as there are restrictions on historical dramas aired on Chinese TV. For example, although the novel heroine is a transmigrated special ops women who wakes in the body of an 8 year old, who then ends up living with the Prince of Yan Bei for 8 years in his exiled state, in the drama Zanilla Zhao is a young girl with superhuman abilities from her secret sect mother and early childhood assassin training, and only lives with the Prince of Yan Bei for 3 years. Etc.

I haven't yet read the new (started May 2018) chapter-by-chapter translations by Qidian International listed here, but I love the drama, the story that I know piecemeal so far, and I hope their translation is good. So far, they have up to chapters 243 on their website (although it's not updated on novel updates), and you have to either watch an ad, or pay with "stones" (you earn them by checking in on the website regularly) to view the hidden chapters.

I'll update this once I've read their translation. Zanilla Zhao, Kenny Lin and Shawn Dou were amazing in Princess Agents, and like many other fans, I secretly hope they come back to film the second half of the novel!

Update: I've read the completed 292 chapter novel at www. Webnovel. Com. The translation is good. Pros: Our heroine gets her happy ending, sticks to her principles, and I get to read the rest of the story after the lake scene. And there is so much character growth that it even gets kind of sad. There are also some side stories and epilogues at the end. Con: The story has so much war. There are many battles, involving 70, 000 dead here, 40, 000 dead there, etc. It was hard to imagine in my mind, as I'm used to light novels, not war novels. There are many characters and I soon forgot the names of most of the soldiers, servants, foreign royals, etc. They should include a map, because most of the novel involves many characters travelling all over the continent, planning military battles and excursions based on the geography. In conclusion, it was a good read and I'd recommend it. However, the cost in spirit stones is pretty high. <<less

Definitely a darker story. It's refreshing because the MC at first is 8 years old. So none of her martial prowess is very useful yet. What she does use is her youth and intelligence to exact revenge. I am interested to see what happens after all of her revenge. But I am happy that those that deserve to die will die, and most die a horrible death. But this novel is not for those that can't deal with harsh realities of history. Those types of murders and annihilation definitely happened... more>> in ancient china. This novel is really good.

I've been running out of novels with female protagonists so I decided to give this a try.

Through the first 3 chapters we see how the main female MC in her first life is truly a talented and dedicated agent who died for the greater good. When she finally begins her second life as the 8 year old s*ave, it was really hard to churn. I mean, waking up as a s*ave is already some high difficulty setting, but waking up to wolves is another thing. Some names that were mentioned... more>> in the summary made their appearance but it's very difficult to like any of them so far.

It's still at 5 chapters, but the translation is good and the story has a very strong female MC. I'll be waiting patiently for more!

EDIT: This is actually a pretty gruesome and dark story... I wonder if it will continue. But it's great! <<less

Story is pretty good, albeit dark. There are discrepancies in the plot that happeneds several times, usually during major turning points in the story.

Long story short, FL has a severe case of Stockholm Syndrome.

... more>>
Spoiler

To my disappointment FL falls for the man that massecures her clan, sold all of her aunts to brothels, ens*aved all the children of her clan including herself. The s*ave conditions are horrible and before FL's own eyes, her cousins, brothers, and sisters where all slowly dismembered alive, beatened to death, given to an old sadistic pe*ophile and then killed, and fed to starving dogs where they were all devoured while alive. So FL sees all this and swears revenge, but because ML treated her 'well' she spares his life cause he 'spared' her life.... then falls in love cause ML 'saved' her numerous times after FL had escaped. Note ML wants to ens*ave her again.......

One thing I Hate most to read in 'transmigration' story, when the MC are clearly 'a different SOUL', insert into a different body, AND BECOME A ret*rd!

Suppose, the original-body's relative.. also the 2nd-Male-Character.. all those feeling like hate and revange, are NON OF HER BUSINESS!

She might be a genius before. Then turn into a ret*rd... being a nosy into other people business, snooping around and letting her-self into trouble, BUT keep on blaming others for her suffering (???) TOTALY STUP*D!

So I'm still reading it, plan to finish it, but I need a break. A breather. Cause this sh*t right here is HARSH!! The death toll alone makes me wonder how there are still people alive in this novel. The killing of innocents is overwhelming. And the few people who have a heart I fear will be taken advantage of.

This is not a light hearted story. Its full of political bullsh*t that makes me f*ucking hate the rich and powerful. If you can keep up with the fast pace events... more>> and endless characters it's a good read.

Now... back to work the story. ?

**UPDATE**

It took me longer to get through this story than most because there is SO MUCH WAR!!

Very Military and Politcal heavy with enough romance to keep me around.

Though it was good, I kept my review at 4 stars because the story seemed to move forward in time, before going back to the present, and even delving into the past, which kinda got confusing. Then the author went and

Spoiler

killed my favorite character Emperor Li Ce. I was too ready to f*ck someone up!! ?

[collapse]

And the ending was iffy I mean

Spoiler

For Yan Xun to be such a tyrannical lowly bastard who killed off all the people who helped raise him to emperor really made me want to see something bad happen to him. But the worse he got was lonely the rest of his life... Author, couldn't you at least cripple his a$$?! ?

[collapse]

Regardless, if you like heart wrenching drama, non-stop action, and a dark heavy plot, this story is made for you.

Translation is good too!! ? <<less

So far so great! Who and where she reincarnates to, is very different and fresh from the usual. Her personality is also not as stoic and completely emotionless. We get to see her actually feel something for the characters, which are very deep and understandable. How the author approaches this genre is also more realistic and dark. Usually the setting of where the MC lands, seems more like there is a bunch of politics and verbal squabbles, but this story also reveals way more physically harsh and disturbing events that... more>> are realistic to this time period. But that's what makes it fresher and more intense too! The reincarnation actually starts at chapter 4. That's where the action gets more intense and fun. Personally I skipped chapter 1-3 because its just backstory that idk if it's gonna be important later, but it usually never is. Skip it or don't, up to you! Either way a really exciting story awaits you~ <<less

I was so hooked on to the unfinished cdrama that I searched high and low for this novel to get my closure. And OMG this novel is AMAZING! I practically reread ths second half (after the ice lake scene) 6 bloody times and still can't get over it! I read the first half 3 times just to keep up to date with the second half because the cdrama deviated a bit from the novel.

The war scenes are cleverly written, the progress of relationships are much commendable, and growth of each... more>> characters are truly engaging. I am so in love with ZGY-XingEr relationship and hated the author for making them so cold and cruel in the beginning after the ice lake, can't she write it better with moving moments? OMG poor Xing er always get bullied by ZGY cold and restrained character.

Spoiler

I also wished the antagonists had much crueler deaths, to my disappointment, the main villain get to live to the very end albeit alone and with a certain sickness.

[collapse]

It's disappointing that this novel got embroiled with the plagiarism scandal, I don't know to what length they had been plagiarized and whether it had been copied word for word (hopefully not), but if I were to disregard this scandal, I would say this is one of the most engaging and breathtaking novels I've ever read, wonderfully written with amazing scenes that propels the female protagonist to a new level of grandeur. <<less

I first saw the drama that was made for this novel but I'm so happy that I read the novel after. The novel is way better than the drama.

This novel is a slow placed one, especially with the the romance but it's so worth it. Everything is so well written that you'll get sucked in the plot and the characters battles with what they have to do and what they desire that you will not be able to put it down.

The romance is a slow one but it's worth when you get to the part when Chu Qiao (MC) finds out that Zhuge Yue (ML) is alive, that's when the true story of these two starts.

it's a good read if you not against a communism protagonist or a dark story, there were more people died in this story than WWII western front, from a prince to a farmer new born, the wars devoured them all. (our MC alone killed atleast thousands her own)

as a soldier and a communist officer, our main were a straightforward and stubborn type till her dream got ruined by the people she trust most. When the good people killed by their comrades, the disciple ordered soldiers to kill his teachers,... more>> the soldiers killed their own people, her beliefs slowly bend.

not alot about girls fight over some princes, not about building an ancient PRC. Story is about a girl reborn into the end of Warlord era, sacrificed herself for the people, led a harder life than a s*ave or a king. At the end, she changed the era, opened the rulers eyes
Spoiler

2 of them love her, 1 other loved her when the last were just a kid whom called her his aunt...

[collapse]
but the era itself changed her, turned her back to a happy women instead of a stubbon soldier

you might hates the characters but they were well created, everyone has their own growth, they changed, they made people loves them or hates them instead of staying undeveloped till the end. People might complain about the slow development of the main lead but after all, she were a communist who teached some younger childs about civil war (China Civil war) or Marx in her free time, be open minded and give her sometimes to grows
Spoiler

her flat chest hohoho

[collapse]

its a good read as long as readers are open minded ones and can stand the bloodness of war. The countries, the people mind set were well placed into the era. The plot were confusing some time and had lot of flaws but the whole story were well written. read if you have free time and tired of sweet stories <<less

The usual premise of a skilled woman being transmigrated into another world and into a weak body. However, I enjoyed the initial chapters after her arrival. They paint a grim picture of a foreboding story of blood, tears and revenge. The MC is decisive and almost fatalistic in her outlook, she adapted quickly to her new environment and aren't afraid of staining her hands with murder and promised to get her vengeance on the nobles.

Decent start, looking forward for more.

I rarely moved after reading a novel but this story successfully moved me. Although it's filled by so many bloodshed, massacres, broken and lost limbs, unrequited loves, and death of certain characters, I still couldn't help my self for wanting to read more.

Now let's talk about our main leads:

Chu Qiao

... more>>
Spoiler

I love CQ for being strong and righteous but I think she's a bit naive. She thought she could change the world by her own strength but little did she knew that it'll be too much for her to bear. She rarely enganged in political affair in her previous life and mainly focused in military. With that little knowledge, she immersed herself in political affair in the cruel ancient era and utterly defeated by her own beliefs. But I'm happy that she could finally achieve it with ML.

[collapse]

Yan Xun

Spoiler

I actually rooted for YX and CQ to be together, if only he didn't change. But for someone who saw his own families slaughtered on front of him, it's understandable that he'll change, from a bright and playful youth to a cold and ruthless man.

But still I hate him for cruelly killed his own peoples who helped him from nothing and also his citizens who believed in him. I also hate him because he hurted CQ.

In the end, he changes to be a better ruler by abolishing s*avery like what CQ's did but she's no longer by his side. And YX spends the rest of his life in loneliness and feels empty in the inside.

[collapse]

Zhuge Yue

Spoiler

Many despised ZY because he ruthlessly killed CQ's "family" because they're mere servants. I hate his action too but I don't want to be too hard on him because: he was born in a era where servants were worthless. These belief was already rooted for hundreds years. His family believed it. His friend believed it. The society believed it. It's understandable that he'll believe it too.

But he changed after meeting CQ. He treated servants better and he also gradually changed his beliefs.

What I love the most about him is: he loves and belives CQ unconditionally. He also easily thrown his own ambitions for CQ, something that YX couldn't do. He gets the jackpot of course. He has his own kingdom and CQ is by his side.

[collapse]

There is one more character that I love in this story:

Spoiler

It's Li Ce. He's so pitiful. He only loved 2 women in his life but both of them loved someone else (one of them is CQ of course). But despite of that, he still helped CQ when she's in need.

I really cried so hard when I read about his death T_T

[collapse]

But don't worry, although there are so much bloods in this story, it's still happy ending for both of our leads. <<less

I felt pain, frustation, happiness, and sadness all at the same time, but even with those bittersweet and painful feelings, it still makes me to go on and read and anticipate what's gonna happen next. In an instant, this story became one of my very favorites. I love all the characters, I love their flaws, their relationships, and their growths.

Like AFM mentioned, why did FL become a ret*rd after transmigration? As an agent in her first life, how can she not know how horrible politics is? Why would she involve herself in this struggle? FL’s attitude is baffling and contributes much to the upheaval in the story. The story has too much going on.

The story is your standard strong FMC with politically motivated male characters that is somehow stronger/equal to the FMC (we have a few, as per the description hinted).

After she's reincarnated, it gets somewhat confusing early on since we're dropped into watching the MC in a situation that's not immediately known or explained to us (1st person view) and makes it somewhat mundane in writing, before explaining it from another person view of the situation (3rd person view) which builds new character and the world.

After that, the story flows more normally... more>> where you can immediately guess where the plot is going then follow it without being confused. There was another sudden shift later on that got confusing I had to reread the chapter, and the previous one to see where the FMC went and what exactly is happening.

___________

See the line above? This series could use those line breaks in-between scenes to differentiate two situations or conversation. There are quite a few places which those lines would be useful. Of course the author themselves could have just written better so readers easily understand scene transitions but adding those lines would have been a nice, simple alternative.

150 chapter in : Although there are times that it gets confusing, or seemingly rushed, it's been a while since I've enjoyed a decent read on NU so it's a free 5 star even with it's weakness. <<less

Note: This will just be me ranting about certain parts of the story but, in my opinion, despite them being frustrating, it's still a good read

I'd say the rating for this novel should be around 4-star. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it reading it but at the same time, it was frustrating. And despite Chu Qiao being the FL, I pretty much despised her for being a self-righteous hypocrite.

... more>>
Spoiler

Here are the things that I found absurd:

1. Chu Qiao is, somewhat, a hypocrite. When I first saw the synopsis of the novel, I was immediately intrigued by it and notice the part where it says that "Chu Qiao having a kind hearted nature." In the first half of the novel, we do, in fact, get to see Chu Qiao having this righteous aura around her, especially before she transmigrated but in the second half, as said by Zhao Song, "I liked you as you are now. You were forever so self-confident, regardless of your status, identity, your predicament. You would not look down on yourself, nor wallow in self-pity. You would never lose hope, forever maintaining that faith, forever trusting in your abilities. However, I really hate the present you—arrogant and self-centred, always proclaiming that you are saving people. Who do you think you are? What do you think you're doing now? Being benevolent? Making amends? Or wanting to do some good deeds before you can return to that beast in peace, to live your life?" (Despite him saying this, he probably still has lingering feelings for her) What's worse is that she never regretted it, she knows it's not right but she says it's for the best of Yan Bei and it pisses me off. Yes she cried when someone close to her dies but not because she realizes that she's the reason but because they left.

2-3. Literally ever man she interacted with, for the first time, will have a favourable impression of her, no matter what. The only person I could justify is Yan Xun, they after all started to have feelings for each other during their time at the prison and it developed over time. But for the others, I dont see a real reason for them to have feelings for her and Zhuge Yue, who the hell waits for over 10 years for unrequited love?! It would be better if, during their time apart, he had a lover but nooooo~, he fell in love with a servant he barely knew. Because of this, it is one of the main driving force for the plot, both directly and indirectly.

4. Chu Qiao has no actual character development. She' still has the same character before and after her transmigration with the only difference is, she found true love. Instead, what the author should've done was to remove the transmigration part and let her start from the very bottom (s*ave) and the reason she was able to rise was because of her perseverance then I can say that she will character development. In other words, the transmigration is what's keeping her from truly developing.

5. Note: This is not a rant but something I've notice with the novel. It was already said in the story but I'll just say it again, SHE HAS NO GOAL. Everything she's been fighting for has always been for others and you may think she's selfless but she's somewhat of a passive character, even when she supposedly retired from the war, she became the general again because everyone wants her back.

6. Forgive and forget, specifically for Yan Xun and Zhuge Yue. For Yan Xun, she LITERALLY knows that he killed everyone she cared about and all the innocents just to reach his goal but she doesnt stay mad at him but instead, defends him saying something like it's for the best. In fact, her last push was when Yan Xun wanted to kill Zhuge Yue but still, all she said was "I wont forgive you." For Zhuge Yue, you both were f*ckin enemies!!! He killed all your friends like family when you were a s*ave yet just because he saved you a few times, you hesitate to kill him?!

7. Note: This is just an idea. The part where Yan Xun and Chu Qiao split up really couldve been done better for a better emotional trauma because Chu Qiao said it herself later in the story, they lacked communication which led to the split and honestly speaking, it's a dull reason for something big.

8. Chu Qiao could be said to have PTSD after the split especially when it concerns royalties and when she heard that Zhuge Yue was still alive but as a king, she hesitates to meet him since it's been 2 years and maybe he's changed but after she met him in a festival (?), she completely drops her guard around him and you may say that it still took a few years for their relationship to be official but it's not to accept Zhuge Yue hasnt changed despite king but because she has PTSD (A rant in a rant: Once again, she has no regret of what she's done and the only reason she has PTSD is because she's tired of all the deceptions, lies, and fights).

9. Chu Qiao realizes later in the stort that maybe, just maybe, she has loved two persons back then; Zhuge Yue, because she gave her a handkerchief (?), but couldn't because of reasons. (Really? you might've loved him all because of a handkerchief?!) ; and the other being Yan Xun for obvious reasons. What's worse, I think she said something like she might've never really love Yan Xun but only thought so because he was her source of warmth at the time and misinterpreted it as love. (Once again, REALLY?! Now you're just making excuses!!)

10. Yan Xun could've, no, SHOULD've been convicted of his crimes. I do admit that Yan Bei is flourishing in his rule but let's not forget how he achieved that (he's basically Hitler).

11. Note: This is a half rant becuase of a detail I noticed. The character/personalities of Zhuge Yue and Yan Xun in the first half just switched between each other which led me to think if Chu Qiao only went to Zhuge Yue because his personality is the same as the former Yan Xun.

12. Note: Personal Opinion. Zhuge Yue best boii so far. So far, in the world Chu Qiao is in, I think he is normal.

13. Chu Qiao keeps saying that the she feels like the heavens favour her so much which I will undoubtedly say it's so f*cking true. Like look at Zhao Song's sister, I pity her so much like despite Yan Xun's status, she had loved him and was willing to do anything for him yet they used her love against her and her kingdom.

Spoiler

What's more she was r*ped and I think later in the story, she used her abilities to rebel Yan Xun and his army but everyone seems to be against her.

14. Have I ever mentioned that she never regretted causing everyone's (innocents and her closed friends) death? If I did, then I will f*ckin say it again. SHE. REGRETS. NOTHING!!! I actually think that it's somewhat reasonable if she never regretted killing before the breakup since she has done it for her beloved but even after the breakup, she was only tired of the war and losing Zhuge Yue not because of guilt or regret, not even a nightmare of her closed friends which makes me think if she ever considers them as one in the first place. (or maybe it happened off-screen)

15. She doesn't use her past life knowledge to her advantage. She only used her wisdom, experience, and fighting skills she used as an Agent to live by. Which makes her transmigration, nearly useless for the general plot.

16. I honestly think it should be a bit longer for the first half because I didnt have an attachment to Yan Xun, especially reading the synopsis. It wouldve been better if we'd seen how he impacted her life as they go through hardships together but instead, all I get the feeling is that he has not contributed for Chu Qiao aside from losing a finger. It was Chu Qiao who has done so much for him all so that they can see Yan Bei together.

17. There are a bunch of plot holes.

18. I don't know if it was the author's intention where she wanted us to sympathize with ALL the characters since well, either they die or they got their own "good" ending but how it was executed for it was way off.

That's pretty much all I have to say... Honestly speaking, with just those factors I stated, it couldve been 3-stars or even lower but I loved it because of the execution of the story and how bittersweet the scenes were especially nearing the breakup and the breakup itself. <<less
