The Rebirth of an Ill-Fated Consort

Description

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

Crying blood and tears, she pledged a poisonous vow. The gods did not fail her. She was sent back to a decade ago. The legitimate daughter of Jiang family returned from hell.

Forget it, whatever! Since they already claimed that she was a temptress that wrecked the country, she shall overturn the world into complete chaos starting with her beguiling sister, her malicious stepmother, her cruel lover and her heartless family. Let her end the lives that Yama refused to end.

She was a pawn in her past life. In this life, however, the world was her chess board. With an alluring smile and a charming figure that enchanted the entire nation, the red-clothed woman wrecked chaos among the lands. She was a vengeful spirit from hell, determined to make those who wronged her pay in blood.

“I want those who owe me a life debt to hold their hearts out in front of me. I want those who looked down on me to only be able to admire me. I want Lord Zhong Zi to shiver when he sees me. I want to step on this splendid river and mountains!”

— — —

“You are a temptress and I am a thief.” His robe was as dark as the night and his gaze was as cold as the Northern Star. “A perfect match.”

Her red dress was akin to fire, but her heart was the coldest ice in the winter.

He was stoic in his black robe, yet he was willing to warm her frozen heart.

In this life, the elegant man seemed like a snowy bamboo grove with tall, chilly mountains, walking step by step towards her like an unstoppable force.

“Ruan Ruan, if you hate the world, then I shall conquer the lands with you.”

“What if I love the world?” She asked.

“I am the world, so you can only love me,” he answered.

Really interesting! Even though I find the revenge plot kind of overused I'm still liking this novel. The Female lead truly does not have anyone to rely on as the romance is slow. So currently she has no support.

It's the middle of the night. I JUST finished this novel, and came here to gush!

I read this author's works a bit out of order, starting with Malicious Empress, followed by Di Daughter, then lastly this one. Honestly she ranks as one of my favorite authors. No one writes historical plotting / scheming quite the same! I love that she respects the intelligence of the reader and her stories are always tightly written - always moving along quickly and thrillingly.

Originally I hesitated diving into this due to some reviews that... more>> mentioned the below points, but I ended up being very pleasantly surprised:

    1. A draggy last arc. It ended up being all good. Admittedly, for all her strengths I've noticed this author is not the best at writing endings. However, if I have to pick, the ending here was my favorite out of all 3 works. Way less contrived than the others and kept my interest all the way to the very end.
    1. Less romantic vs. Malicious Empress. NOT SO! This actually surprised me quite a bit. I thought the romance here was even more romantic and evident than Malicious Empress! Romance fans - here's a PSA for you. The relationship gets established relatively early on, giving us readers plenty of sweet and cute romantic scenes ;)
    1. More brutal / bloody vs. Malicious Empress. Well, this I have to agree with - the author really pulled all the stops and didn't hesitate to write some shocking scenes in this one. Seems like she toned it down in her later works to not trigger any sensitive readers. Even so, it's not too bad (the writing moves along quickly) and just adds imagery to the story. I tend to avoid gratuitous violence / bloodiness like the plague, and yet wasn't too bothered.
Something about the past life ex (that MC seeks revenge upon) which I thought was interesting, and no one's mentioned in reviews yet. (Somewhat huge spoiler, beware!)

Spoiler

I feel like I've missed something, but somehow I never thought the ex was THAT evil towards the MC. Sure, he was not an angel or pure kind soul by any means, but he also didn't directly kill the MC. At most he was indifferent, uncaring and ungrateful, and used our MC's love for his own gain - he was a bad person, but not evil evil, you know - the kind that are super maliciously evil. That made it more difficult for me to understand the writing of the author which framed him a bit as the "ultimate evil enemy" that needed to be defeated. At the very very end, he also redeems himself somewhat which made it harder to hate him thoroughly and feel satisfied by his ending. IMO, the sister who on her own cruelly killed MC in the most degrading and inhumane way possible deserved a bit more of a struggle, but she was wiped out pretty quickly early on (and with ease).

[collapse]

Malicious Empress has held the #1 spot in my heart for so long I didn't think anything could meet that standard, but unexpectedly Rebirth has managed to become a solid tie. One of my all time favorites - a perfect balance between relentless cold revenge and sweet sweet romance.

Also shoutout to the translators who have done an amazing job with the translations to date - really incredible translation quality. Thanks for sharing with us grateful readers! <<less

A good story of revenge. One thing I find a bit unbearable is how many people in this novel describe the FL to be vicious and ruthless person. I mean she just retaliates whatever plot or scheme that was thrown to her and never the first to provoke. Yet, when the scheme bite back to them, they scold the FL to be a demon and never think they are the wrong's one. Plus, many antagonists have unjust hate toward FL and retaliate just because of envy or some other ridiculous... more>> reason. It's like the whole world is against her minus a few people who actually like her which I find quite exhauted features in many novels. <<less

3.5/5 stars.

I liked this story. I didn't love it.

This book was written before her more favored novel, The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage, and it shows. This story is far more unpolished compared to Malicious Empress in terms of scheming and tying up loose ends. This story is also definitely more violent and bloody compared to Malicious Empress as well, which personally I don't mind, but other people may be bothered by this. For example:

... more>>
Spoiler

At one point, Jiang Ruan's sister Jiang Dan is killed by being crushed (iirc) to death with stone after she tried to scheme against Jiang Ruan but had the situation turned on her for committing 'incest' (she was a concubine of the Emperor) and for 'getting pregnant' by the Fourth Prince (iirc). (She actually wasn't pregnant). She was sentenced to die by stone. Jiang Ruan came and described directly to Jiang Dan what would happen to her, and then watched as this entire thing happened. It's described as being a sight so gruesome even hardened guards ended up getting sick by it, but Jiang Ruan just calmly watched it like nothing was going on. She then has her sister skinned, and has that skin sent to her biological father, Jiang Quan, who was sitting in prison, to affect his mental health.

[collapse]

Anyways MC's father is literal tr*sh, the entire family is tr*sh, and it was incredibly satisfying watching them get dealt with. This story reminds me somewhat of Divine Doctor: Daughter of the First Wife (Shen Yi Di Nv) in that her enemy is also her own biological father and her Jiang family. The only difference is she doesn't have the Emperor on her side to help her out.

That being said, the story just still wasn't as good as Malicious Empress. Although I admit it was good, I felt as though the second half dragged quite a bit, so I found myself getting a little bored.

I really liked the ML quite a bit, but not as much as I loved XJX from Malicious Empress lol!

That being said, the story is still quite good and I would encourage people to read it. Malicious Empress is better though, and I find the characters in that story are more lovable. Still though this story is pretty good. If you haven't read Malicious Empress yet, I'd read this first as it's not as good, and then read Malicious Empress.

Side note, the translators did a great job for this story! <<less

I have high expectations out of this novel since it's written by the same author of TRMEML and so far I am not disappointed.

Obviously there are similarities between Ruan'er and Jiao Jiao. Both have slower pace romance and are very strong that they can carry themselves without the need to be a damsel in distress but this one is even more brutal. First chapter had me go "woah dark!" and while I pride myself for having the stomach to read or watch gruesome stuff, I still reeled myself when I've... more>> read the details of what Ruan'er went through. I'm very excited to know what schemes and revenge she has in store for her Jiang family and the rest.

I'd give this 10 stars. The other 5 goes to the translators and editors who did a marvelous job. They really and truly know what they're doing. They've managed to translate the novel with great attention to detail. Not only their English is impeccable but they also know how to arrange their translation without making the sentences look awkward. The translation look professional in my opinion plus they go the extra mile by adding pictures to add more reading experience. I hope by the time they finish this story, they move on to another one which I will surely read. <<less

I google translated and read this since I loved the other novel this author wrote which I believe is the rebirth of the malicious empress from the military lineage. And yes it is another rebirth novel I really enjoy this genre. I had high expectations and the story did not disappoint but I felt like the latter half dragged a bit. Overall, a really enjoyable read.

Great rebirth/second novel. It is written by the same author as "The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage" so there definitely are some similarities between the two books... especially in the way the 2 male leads' appearances are described lol.

I would give this book:

4.5/5 for plot (last arc gets a little convoluted with secret identities, political plotting, and relationship "issues", other than that, it's great)

... more>> 4/5 for characters

5/5 for writing

4/5 for romance

5/5 for overall enjoyment

Jiang Ruan (MC of this novel) is different than Shen Miao, the MC from Military Empress, in that she focusses more on actively getting revenge as since she suffered a lot more in her past life (in my opinion) than Shen Miao. There is a lot of satisfying revenge in this book and the villains aren't all super cliche, like a lot of the ones you find in other Chinese web-novels (ie. white lotuses). Be warned though that this novel does get a little intense on describing torture/revenge/past life scenes, so I would definitely advise for you to skip over those scenes if you're faint of heart.

The romance is decent in this book, but the Male Lead isn't really that present for the first half of the story. Off the top of my head, I remember 3 instances that he had significant interactions with the MC in the first half. I guess this is kinda good because it's established that the MC doesn't have to rely on the ML and that she's strong/smart in her own way, but I wish there had been a bit more progression between the two.

The translators are also doing a great job in capturing the meaning of the original text.

Overall, I highly recommend this novel if you like satisfying revenge, a smart female protagonist, and rebirth novels. <<less

This story is rather similar to The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage (TRMEML) in a sense of the story progression and a bit of how the romance progress. However, there is very obvious difference. TRMEML is much more lighter in the plot compared to this book. This book’s plot is very heavy and there is lesser romance with more scheming and enemies.

The progress of the romance of this book is rather similar to TRMEML where they don’t trust each other at first. However, the difference is that... more>> the male lead is rather attracted to the female lead earlier on the book. Both books are rather sweet in the romance.

The female lead in this book is rather vicious and confident. Her main goal is to get revenge on all of the people who made her suffer. And the list of enemies are rather long and much longer than TRMEML. As readers, we can feel her desperation and sadness through her actions and thoughts. Since unlike TRMEML, she has a vicious and uncaring family members. She does not receive any care and love other than from the male lead and her maternal family.

The male lead however is rather mysterious throughout the book. He helps the female lead whenever he knows she needs help willingly. That is also why the female lead slowly trust in him. He is very understanding to the female lead and is willing to sacrifice for her as well. The male lead is also described to do things very efficiently.

The plot on the revenge part of the novel contains tackling many enemies that just keeps trying to make use of the female lead or just to prevent the eighth prince success in what he plans to do. To me, I think all of the antagonist deserves the revenge since they just plans to use her as a stepping stone for their progression in better success.

The translation of the novel is great and accurate.

In conclusion, this novel contains a lot of scheming and how the female lead tackles on it. It shows a bit of the romance of the female lead and male lead and the romance of the side characters. However, it is rather little compared to TRMEML. I found this novel a little too heavy and I would prefer TRMEML instead. <<less

This novel has less romance and more politics than Military Lineage. I personally like this story better as the various characters' positions are more fleshed out than in Military Lineage. However, this story has several arcs which drag on a bit, especially toward the end of the story, and the ending seemed fairly rushed and unsatisfying to me. I was skipping a lot of passages in the last portion of the story.

MC Jiang Ruan is much more calculating and coldhearted than Military Lineage's Shen Miao, and much better at holding... more>> her own because of it. However, comeuppance for a lot of MC's main enemies (pretty much her entire immediate family) tends to be somewhat lackluster. If you're looking for a rebirth revenge plot, this is okay but The Princess Wei Yang does revenge better.

ML's position in this story is much better explained than in Military Lineage and his reasons for running into the MC are less contrived. This is one of the reasons I like this story better. However, there's less of a romantic chase, so for people who enjoy stories where the ML goes to the end of the world for the MC, Military Lineage is probably better. This ML takes a definite back seat to the MC. <<less

This novel is probably one of the best reborn-revenge story. MC is so calm and deep minded at planning that somehow cause me to awe.

MC always have her revenge as the final goal and always only look at that goal. She is not the typical falling in love at first sight with ML. The same also apply to ML too.

The love that is shown between the MC and ML after they get together is so deep that it's really touching. It's the kind of love where you will trust the... more>> other even if everyone is questioning his/her decisions, always be each other pillar of support. Especially ML way of loving MC.

ML is always prorated as cold and unfeeling, but actually his heart is the warmest in the story, not only to MC but also to others he loves dearly. While MC is always portrayed as smiling and warm to others, her heart is the coldest because her heart already frozen in the first life.

That's why ML love is like a boiling water pouring to MC coldest heart. Their love is warm and steamy making my the bystander heart also melts :)

Personally, I love how in this novel everything have karma, those who does good will be rewarded and those who does bad will have their retribution. There's no grey area.

MTL is easy <<less

This is a reborn and revenge story. As usual the first few chapters are started by recounting the story on how does the FL die and the grievance that she had endured all the years she had been alive.

The FL is very calm but slowly taking her time to do her revenge. She does not have any super power or material arts but instead use her previous experience and knowledge to deal with the villainess.

Till chapter 47 the ML only showed twice and I could say this novel is focusing... more>> on FL revenge rather than a romance story between main leads.

The good thing is that those bad people is not too over dramatic in which I can still tolerate their wicked doings compare to another novel that wants to make me puke blood.

Thanks translator team for your time translating this novel, good job! <<less

I am a fan of The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage, therefore I explored the author's other works and so far this does not disappoint. The story of this is also revenge driven except our female protagonist (Jiang Ruan) this time is even more pitiful then Shen Miao because [not really a spoiler since you figure it out within the first 3 chaps, but just in case]

... more>>
Spoiler

she was not only NOT loved by her family but used by her father as a stepping stone to her shu sister's path. She was turned into a human swine!!!

[collapse]

For me, this novel's beginning was already a lot more violent, and although the revenge trope is also being used here, I find that it also differs greatly from Shen Miao's story because Jiang Ruan's personality is very different. She is a lot more lively, direct, and not as suspicious in nature. I think this is due to the fact that not only does she want revenge, but because she treasures her life much more then Shen Miao. She not only wants to get revenge, but to live her life well. Her first encounter with the ML was absolutely hilarious! Her methods are also different because unlike Shen Miao, she has no backing, or power to help fulfill her revenge.

Spoiler

She dragged a bunch of guys who tried to assassinate her to him and basically said since they have already seen you, you might as well help me kill them too, which he did btw LOL. Second time they met, he wanted something she found, ans she just chucked it at him and basically said "here take it" and then proceeds to tell him all about where he can find more weaknesses of a certain someone (that she also treats as an enemy)

[collapse]

Lastly, the translation is fantastic! You can find explanations of many terminologies of unfamiliar idioms at the end of each translation, and each chapter has little to no grammatical and spelling errors. My only complaint is that I wished the schedule is a lot more frequent. I would say wait for more chapters until you read more because I'm literally dying of curiosity. <<less

Honestly it´s not bad. I´m sure I would´ve enjoyed this type of plot more had I not read The rebirth of the malicious empress of military lineage beforehand. I suppose I´ve read too many novels with this type of plot about rebirth, given a second chance, revenge, ancient china setting, all-powerful ML, enemies etc so I´m no longer as intrigued as before.

I skipped over a couple chapters, skim through each page but I kept feeling bored since this story is so similar to the author´s previous work. Honestly I... more>> wish the author had written something different. It feels like it´s just dragging on following a template. Nothing fresh or original.

Very similar to the"Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage" (Obviously) except the MC's life/death before rebirth is even more gruesome and gory. Honestly, it's almost like the NC-17 version with a few differences here and there but still has its own distinctive deviations that keep it refreshing. Right now the story hasn't been developed that much yet nor has it gotten to the real juicy parts, but I can see the potential in this one. I recommend giving this one a read if you're as addicted to the... more>> "revenge/rebirth" genres as I am. <<less

Really enjoyed reading this novel, even more so than The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage. The relationship between JR and our ML is very well developed. It starts off relatively slow, with him being intrigued and suspicious of her and her disliking him because she thought he was helping her white lotus sister, but I really enjoyed this premise instead of the usual he fell in love with her because she's so different from other girls. It's also nice to see he isn't interested in her right... more>> from the beginning, because she's too young. Halleujah.

After the time skip, the two slowly start to develop a romantic relationship. I like how it takes ML a while to recognize their feelings, because he has no experience and how his steward acts as a matchmaker. Makes for great comedy material. While it was frustrating that JR initially closed herself off and refused to accept the ML's feelings, I feel like it's a very reasonable thing for her to do. It's nice to see her slowly open up to ML and accept their relationship, especially after they get married.

Spoiler

I really enjoyed the fact that he guessed she had been reborn, but didn't want to push her to tell her secrets. He understood it was a barrier between them, but instead of confronting her about it, he decides to wait patiently for the day she opens up to him. It really shows the love and respect he has for her. When JR finally does tell him, it makes it all the more meaningful! You can really see how she has chosen to accept him and his love in this life and how much she has come to trust him.

[collapse]

The revenge / face-slapping of this novel is also very satisfying. Based on how her family treated her in her previous life, and how terrible they are in this life, they definitely deserve whatever happens to them.

I do agree the last arc of the story is a bit slow though.

Overall, very enjoyable rebirth/revenge story. The translation is great. Definitely recommend! <<less

This is definitely a brutal revenge story, and the interesting thing about it is it always leaves you wondering if the ruthlessness is justified. JR's former life was extremely pitiful because she was truly a good person who was so full of love, only the people around her was too cruel and only used her as a tool and all those she loved suffered. She never received the love she needed, and upon her rebirth, loses all her faith on the human heart. On one hand, all those she took... more>> revenge on always attacked her first, but on the other hand her methods were very extreme and reminiscent of how they wronged her in her previous life.

I like the ML's (XS) relationship with her as well. He's a very petty blushing maiden who tries very hard to be a smooth talker, his efforts will forever be appreciated. He smoothes JR's edges. Compared to other ML's, he's relatively less ruthless. As his teacher tells him, he isn't a perfect killer because he's too righteous. His only true sense of ruthlessness appears to aid JR.

Another thing I like about this is how the Prince from the previous life actually loved MC. He doesn't know it early on, but after a (very rushed) dre sequence of the past, although to be fair it has been hinted heavily throughout the story, that he does actually like her even when he had yet to remember. He was blinded by ambition, but he wasn't actually actively trying to hurt her, and initially planned to let her go after being crowned. He even wanted to marry her in the second timeline. The true villain in JR's previous life was her family, specifically her sister. As JR puts it, the Prince's biggest sin towards her was giving her hope. It's just that JR loved him so much it became distorted into hate. He deserved what he got, of course, he had his crimes, but I think it makes it a bittersweet relationship. He does try to reclaim himself and dies protecting JR's child, which makes it even more bittersweet, really.

The side characters are very entertaining as well, especially JR's maids and XS's aids and palace servants.

My only problem with it is how dragged on it was. By chapter 160~ there are only pretty much 2 or 3 members of JR's family left and she already lives in XS's palace, and the rest of the chapters seem to be dedicated to political intrigue and XS's political back story. But other than that, it's all good. <<less

Almost carbon copy of rebirth of malicious empress from military lineage. I don't know if this novel is made after empress shen or before, anyway, it's very similar. I liked the ML in this novel. Ruthless ex, tr*sh family, naive loved ones, OP overbearing ML, the usual stuff. The MC way in executing her revenge is more bloody which I like, but she harmed herself too much and often leave loose ends. At least until the part I read. I have lost interest, so I dropped it until here.

Anyway, if... more>> you've read rebirth of empress Shen then you might like this one as well. MC n ML relationship is more romantic in this novel, and I like their dynamic better. All in all, I like this one better, but since I've read rebirth of empress Shen, the intrigue I felt from the story doesn't really offer much.

The translation by Meraki is really good. And they add a lot of notes to help better understand the context. It might be slow update to some people but considering the length of each chapter, I think it's reasonable. <<less
