The Princess Wei Yang


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

Life is unpredictable. Her husband loved her stepsister, deposed her as Empress and even forced her son to death. In that Cold Palace, she was forced to drink poisonous wine. So in the next lifetime, she made a promise to never do good deeds and help others, to never step into the palace and to never become the Empress!

At the Prime Minister’s estate, the mistress’ daughter is reborn into a she-devil.

An evil stepmother? I will make sure you go to Hell!

A two-faced, hypocritical older stepsister? I will rip apart that beautiful façade!

A scheming younger stepsister? I will throw you into the grave!

You guys didn’t let me live peacefully so you should also expect the same!

Initially she wanted to stay away from disaster as far as possible; however, a man’s heart is like a needle in the sea—impossible to search for, impossible to understand.

The man who once swore to abandon her became someone who can’t live without her.

The enemy from the past lifetime suddenly confesses his feelings for her.

Even worse, she is bothered by a handsome man with a thick-skin who doesn’t know how to give up!

Tf to a person who criticize me, I'm sorry if I came as two-faced for you but I can't change my rating because I write this on phone. And yes I like Wei Yang story, I still will remember it but I don't read it anymore and I don't even give the author any pennies of profit. It's good that the truth revealed. Hope authors who plagiarized get a justice from court. My earlier review is my own honest opinion about this story not the author before know the... more>> plagiarism case. Not an encouragement for people to read this story. If you have anything to say don't write it in review message me instead.

To anyone who want to read my earlier review please take it as a grain of salt.


Hm I think some of you unfair when gave reviews. I agree Malicious Empress is the superior story. But this story doesn't deserve 1 star.

I read a lot of chinese transmigration/reincarnation stories, IMO this is one of the best. And there is no controversial plot either like pedophile love interests, r*pe, dubious consent in romance, shitty ML, a plot armored Mary Sue MC. This story has none of that.

And the plot is interesting too and seem logical than similar stories in this genre. MC is more ruthless than Malicious Empress MC who has more empathy. But that's what make them different, and both of them are enjoyable too, for me.

The pacing is good, not too fast or slow.

I approved this ML, which is rare moments. Since I hate most of Chinese/Korean MLs. In another stories Tuoba Zhen can be easily made as an ML.

One of my favourite LNs here. I like how the MC isn't default the most beautiful lady in the book, unlike most cn novels I can name, where their beauty is almost a virtue itself. In fact, this is reiterated many times over comparing her with her half sister. I'd say she has a certain je ne sais quoi and her calm wisdom which appeals to people in unexpected ways.

The MLs (I won't spoil who's the main) are distinct characters and each has unique interactions with the MC. I kinda... more>> want even the psychopath from her past life to fall for her just so he can have a taste of his own medicine.

The only downside is, as another reviewer mentioned, the nonstop scheming, which gets tiring after a long while. Especially when you get all angry at how she's constantly looked down on in her home. Which also means the story succeeds in engaging the reader. <<less

3/5. Read translated chapters upto 110 and MTL-ed the rest. I am deducting two stars for the VERY rushed ending. The "final" villain/mastermind of the story is the neighbouring country's Queen Empress Pei.

she killed Wei Yangs family and is the biggest enemy of MC in the second half of the story. Her death was completely skipped over! There was no clear explanation of what even happened to her and I feel very disappointed. All that plotting and build up of political intrigue wasn't paid off. The Emperor's death was also very rushed. All in all, what should have been full chapters were condensed into one or two sentences, which I really didn't like.

Compared to The Malicious Empress of Military Lineage (TMEML), another rebirth-revenge story that's constantly compared to this one, TPWY is a lot more vicious with its schemes and revenge. The villains are also more cruel as a result, so we as readers can cheer for their demise.

Personally, this story gets bogged down a lot by the continuous scheming - I feel like TMEML does a better job of pacing the schemes so the reader doesn't get suffocated by them - but it's still a good read. I would recommend reading... more>> the beginning quite fast since it isn't that bad at that point, but to read the rest more slowly so you don't get saturated.

My favorite part of this story is that LWY, the MC, isn't the most beautiful - instead, the evil step-sister is, and this is one of the themes (I guess?) of the story, that beauty is only skin-deep. Without her beauty, the evil step-sister has nothing else and it's to the point of obsession for her to be the most beautiful (and most talented, but being the most beautiful takes priority). Instead, the MC with her normal level beauty shines with her intelligence and composure as a result, which is a lot more refreshing.

Personally, for me, since the romance isn't that prominent, I'm not too invested in it. It's okay, but not really there tbh, it's mostly the ML supporting the MC at this point. Thankfully, however, the ML and the MC are the same age - altho I have to admit I'm still creeped out how the MC is like mentally 30+ years..... it's just not natural.

As for the schemes.... they can be a little too vicious for my liking. I find them intelligent, but others with a more cunning mind might find them boring or dumb - I have to admit that I'm not good at scheming or anything of the sort so any remotely intelligent scheme seems brilliant to me~ There is also the typical aphrodisiac plot.... that I'm never comfortable with, so for that the schemes also aren't to my taste.

I think another thing that TWPY does better than TMEML is the way the MC acts w/ her loved ones. Both Shen Miao and Li Wei Yang are obviously broken individuals full of revenge, they have no time for friendship or romance or being vulnerable - which is very understandable and justified. But for me, that can get boring fast, and I would rather enjoy watching the character develop and heal herself over the course of the story as she gets her revenge. In my opinion, TWPY does this much better, and it also made LWY more relatable....I always felt that SM was like an old lady, and she was always too cold with her family even tho she obviously loved them - altho it did make me feel bad for her, but still.... shouldn't she be happy that she's finally reunited with them?

Either way, this is one of the typical rebirth-revenge stories that is better than most out there, and depending on your personal tastes, you'll like TWPY or TMEML better. Imo, I think they're equally good, with each having their strong and weak points, altho I think I might like TMEML better because it's not as cruel in its revenge. <<less

I quite liked the story, but I have deducted two stars for the given reasons :

1) The story progresses really sloooowly?, so much so that at one point I wish to just skip to the last few chapters to know what really happened, but wait here comes reason number 2.

2) The translation updates are so slow, given the rate at which the translator is translating it will be years before I really could skip tot he last chapters, by then I guess I wouldn't care for the story and wouldn't... more>> have given up on it. No offence to the translator, I know you guys are doing hard work translating it but it's just really too slow as compared to zazajunni's translation of TRMEML.

3) The Princess Wei Yang is a freaking superhuman and is just goi vicious. I mean I get that what happened to her in her past life was really awful but the writer went way beyond to make her, well basically Wei Yang.

4) Pshh, this one's really not a reason (i just wanted to make another point to continue point number 3). Despite all the unimaginable stuff that a 13 year old female could pull off, I was amazed by writer's creativity, so many methods to take revenge! Wow! <<less

Very good novel. Satisfying revenge like military empress. I like this one better because of MC ruthless revenge. Unlike military empress, MC doesn't give up revenge over love. I like her and her revenge. ML stay with MC because he want MC attention and love. MC treat him like brother.

I like this novel very much. I like how the female lead plot her revenge. I like the cold-hearted, cruel female lead rather than the too kind-hearted one. The drama is another story though.. A big disappointment to a great novel.

First of all... This is not for someone with weak stomach, and unlike fluffy drama adaptation the viciousness of Wei Yang could be considered legendary even by standard of revenge genre web novel. The drama mix several character background for Wei Young and Le Minde, the drama and novel are completely different thing.

Revenge-time travel element in this story weave intricate plot as Wei Young find the past-future and present-future she face now start to fork to completely different path. The meat of this story is a very complicated plot in... more>> Wei Yang's family and royal family. Wei Yang, learning from her mistake in the past become a champion plotter who avoid traps her enemies laid out to her. Wei Young while vicious, sticking firmly to her principle to only retaliate against those who wants to harm her. She didn't blindly kill everyone who wrong her in her past, but they're not so merciful.

The amazing plot against each other aside, the weak point of this novel is repetition of her enemies, they're all doesn't know when to quit. Reading the RAW ahead, it takes 127 chapters for a sensible character on opposite side to appear and choose to get the hell out of her way. And the guy isn't even the smartest one around.
This story really abuse the notion of 'your enemies won't quit till they're six feet under' as proven by how Wei Yang avoid outright killing until they go overboard.

As for romance... strangely enough nonexistent so far

This is an enjoyable read nonetheless, not the most original story in term of idea but well written with a lot of thought put into the plot. <<less

A classic do-over novel where the MCs naivety and kind heart led to her own damnation at the end. Good thing Buddha gave her another chance to go back in time to where it all began.. Now she knows that the beauty of a person does not reflect ones heart, kind actions have hidden motives and praises are hidden knives ready to stab you at the back...

... more>>

And dang it, I hate Tuo Ba Zhen so much that I’m coughing up blood. MC gave her all to help him, someone who have low chance, to become emperor. And in the end he let their child die, throw her into the cold palace, and he’s not even satisfied; he even cut her legs... *coughs blood* Then he marries her *goddess* cousin who is kind and virtuous... Dang it... Ba zhen yah bastard... (╯°□°)╯︵ (.o.)

I feel really sorry for...

... more>>

the previous generation's female leads - the mother of ML and the empress. Their stories really haunted me. While the empress and the princess were never allies, they both got ruined by the same males - the emperor and the empress's brother.

Emperor forced the princess to live in shame, forced the empress to live in hatred. The brother drove Empress to despair by betraying her, drove the princess to madness by raping her.

If it wasn't for these males' petty selfishness, if they truly knew how to love & cherish their loved ones, these two talented beautiful women wouldn't be so broken and had such miserable endings.

One of the best historical novels I've ever read.

Much better than the TV series, but if you're someone who likes fluff and romance, go watch that. This is more about vengeance and cold-hearted calculation. But is it written amazingly? Yes, it is. Wei-yang's character is well written and actually has emotions instead of being a single-faceted cold evil mastermind. I really liked the way she handles things, the information you need to figure out what's going to happen is there, but it doesn't register until she has revealed it and... more>> it's written in such a way that the reader also feels victorious when victory is achieved. <<less

Siiigh, no one was really all that likeable not even Wei Yang. Sure the plots and revenge part was fun but we don't really go into the nitty gritty of the scheming. Its like wei yang tells her maids to monitor or find out things, then next scene is the actual plot when wei yang beats all her adversaries and we find out how she did it and done. Its just unsatisfying. The other is that there are so many words left untranslated which was kinda annoying as I kept... more>> having to go to the footnotes to find out if the chinese word meant anything important to the story and then have to scroll and find back where I left off. This is not like japanese translation where it is easy to remember all the common suffixes and common family titles like sister or brother. This translation has like a gazillion idioms, the many many ways to call or address someone, especially the complicated super large family where there are many wives, sigh. <<less

I honestly love this novel. It has story, depth and MC is a badass who will get revenge for every little thing. Although she was s*upid in her previous life, she decided to be unforgiving and ruthless in this life. She hasn’t done anything I dislike yet and I always look forward to reading the update. Update from English translator is super slow but I still appreciate her efforts and her translation is a joy to read. This is a must read if you like isekai

It's good, scam and political aspects are interesting and satisfying to read. One thing lacking is... ML is somewhat artificial. I don't get why he loooove MC so much. ... more>>

Yeah she save him when first they met, but that's kinda for she's benefits and that showed in her behavior.

He love her just like that in first sight, pushing her to love him. As horrifying as her last love affair she doesn't ready to love anyone so told him I can't love you. He act like she delivery hurt him but he's so in love couldn't help forgive her generously. It grains my nerves. So I'm not satisfied with ML.

And she's really cruel to opponents. Yeah they started it, so deserved to die, but that kind of torture... I'm not opposed to torture a little, kinda like it. But sometimes she's too much.

like boiled all over the body, poison that hurt and itches to the point that digging and maiming herself. Torture that cut off the foot then walk in niddle and burnt iron. Then literally boiled him alive.


But scam and political drama so interesting to the point cover that unpleasant aspects. It unique in that position so try it! May you like this novel or conflict about it like I do or think it's too much, but at least try, it's worth it. That's the reason why I rate it 5. <<less
