The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage


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

Shen Miao, the Di daughter of a military lineage, pure, amiable, quiet and yielding, foolishly in love with Prince Ding, threw herself into the role of a wife.

After assisting her husband for six years, she finally became the mother of the world (Empress).

She accompanied him to fight for the country, flourished the country’s territory, took risks to become a hostage in another country. When she returned five years later, there was no place for her in the Inner Palace.

The beauty in his arms smiled brightly, “Older sister, the country is stabilized, so you should retire.”

Her daughter met with a violent death and her son the Crown Prince was deposed. Her Shen family who sacrificed themselves for the country and the Emperor, not a single one of them were lucky enough to escape. With the change of one dynasty, everything was overturned. Her clan perished and she had to mourn for her children.

Shen Miao never thought that being a married couple who have gone through trials and tribulations and mutually assisted each other was just a stage joke to him!

He said, “Seeing that you have followed Zhen for twenty years, Zhen will grant you an intact corpse. You should thank this kindness.”

Under the three Chi (1 chi = 1/3 meter) of white silk, Shen Miao made a malicious vow: In the time to come, she will take part in each and everyone’s end!

Upon rebirth, she returned to the time when she was fourteen, when the tragedy had yet to occur, her family was still alive and she was still the pure, amiable, quiet and yielding Di daughter of a military lineage.

Relatives hiding a black heart, Elder and younger (female) cousins are ruthless and malicious, the new Yiniang is like a tiger watching its prey and the disreputable man who wants to repeat the events?

Her family must be protected, the huge enmity must be avenged, the Imperial seat of the country must also be a part of the trophy. In this lifetime, let’s see who can beat the others!

But that little marquis from the Xie family, the arrogant and obstinate spear carrying youth, stood biasedly at her side and proudly said, “Just the fall of the Imperial power. Remember this, the world belongs to you. You– Belong to me!”

This has all the things I like in a story- smart characters with deep feelings; men and women with sincere and loyal hearts; bad guys that are so evil it is only right to see them tortured (and not just a little) ; and good guys who get a happily ever after, eventually.

This novel is pure diamond! I love it so much.

The way the author wrote about ML makes me think that the author infatuated with ML.


But, overall the story is worth reading, the plot is not easy to guess and unique. Love it!! If it is published in english and available in amazon I will purchase it right away!

first off, I would like to say that I sincerely applaud the author for creating such a masterpiece and I also give kudos to the translator (s) that gave us the opportunity to discover such a gem.


In terms of character development, it was pretty well executed. The main character, Shen Miao is no ordinary main character at all (considering I have read a lot of novels in my entire life and have encountered a lot of female leads). She is indeed wise and has a clear view of the things... more>> she wants to achieve and yet never losing her humanity.

The male lead, Xie Jing Xing was a pretty refreshing and somewhat amusing (for me) because of his none-may-care and everything-be-damned personality. But despite his frivolous outer exterior, it's no surprise that he has a hidden personality as well but you would find that other side of him practical and realistic. I rarely encounter this kind of male leads in stories and it was quite the satisfying read considering he was portrayed quite amazingly (of course the unnecessary overpraise of his looks could be lessened but I'm not complaining, it actually made me laugh.)

On the other hand the side characters as well as the villains' characters were (for me) considered absolutely well-written. It isn't the typical 2d villains and it isn't like those side characters that are forgotten after a few chapters later. Each character has depth and you may even find the villains' convictions believable. This story made me think about the world over and over again and find that the villains greatly resemble some of the people I have encountered in my life (yet less poisonous) and the few good side characters made me think greatly of my friends. I even cried for certain people and it really made my heart ache (if you know who I'm talking about *ahem*)


Gahhhh!! I really can't complement enough and although this review is speaking enough of my love for this story (this is the longest review i've made so far) I still can't get over it all!!! The story despite its concept of rebirth, it is truly well executed and I found that everything seemed to tie seamlessly together. The past, the present, as well as the future that it made me feel quite gratified.

Everything was written amazingly though one felt that the chapters towards the end were quite rushed, I had no major problems with it and overall, I greatly recommend reading this masterpiece.

10/5 stars it's that GOOD!!! <<less

This was an amazing novel. It captured my attention from beginning to end with the scheming, romance, jealousy, and characters.

I love how the female lead is strong, smart, and reliant in herself, even until the end. Many of these novels, after pairing up with the strong male, the female just relies in their partner to do everything. However, in this novel, even though he does end up helping her out, she continues to make her own contributions and never gets complacent. That's how a good relationship should work - both... more>> people should bring something substantial to the table, not just their beauty and powerless sincerity.

There are some plot holes, but they didn't detract from the overall flow of the novel.

I guess the one main downside of this novel is how flowery the descriptions of the leads' beauty is. I might not have noticed, but the translators got visibly frustrated with it, which was hilarious, and I also started finding it a bit over the top towards the end. A description of beauty is nice for helping readers visualize the character, but it's not like we can see them no matter how flowery the description, and even if we could, what is the point of a beautiful lead? Can't ugly people be good as well? <<less

This was very well written. It wasn't too long and it was neither short. However, I personally would have preferred a different ending. Overall though, it's a very good story. FL is smart. She doesn't only have a sharp tongue, but she is able to plan her revenge properly that she makes no mistakes. It's also partially due to her memories from her past life. I didn't like ML at first when they were both still strangers, because he didn't care about the FL and saw her and her family... more>> just as part of his plans. It's good how their attraction started around halfway in the story rather than a suddenly fall in love in first sight kind of story. They actually had a reason why or events which led to them falling in love which isn't really related to their appearance, which is rare in these type of stories. <<less

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Nothing too over the top as far as abilities go. The revenge bits were in parts quite funny and well thought out. I liked how they recovered from situations that could be damaging to reputations, but most of all I like the interaction between the male and female leads. I love the prince's attitude, it annoys people but is necessary, especially when you have people like his best friend and so-called mother stand-in who are just plain selfish.

This was my first not BL novel and I loved it. The development of the novel is very well arranged, and events are tied to each other, so you are not confused while reading the novel.

The translation of the novel is also good. I didnt confused while reading the novel because there is a dictionary for some family names to indicate who is who.

I recommend you to give a chance to this novel because you will not regret it. :)

BEAUTIFUL... that’s what this story is!

The novel has a purpose and that is to touch your heart.

It’s definitely a tear jerker towards the end, but it’s all in the name of good story building.

Kudos to both the OG author and the translator- :-)

The style of writing takes awhile to get used to at first but about 20 chapters in it became a very easy read. The translator does a very good job of translating the Chinese culture over.

In regards to the story it was thought out very well. Didn't really find any large plot holes or characters poofing into thin air and that usually happens when novels have this many characters and locations. ... more>>

The only character that I did see poof and was somewhat upset about was our little tiger Jiao Jiao. Near the last bulk of the plot the tiger just disappears. As a hardcore animal lover I wanted more tiger time and an ending for Jiao Jiao at least.

I will say that at times I found myself just reading the dialogue between the villains and skipping anything without "quotes" because descriptions got repetitive or reading about how a evil schemer enjoys her tea wasn't really fun for me, I'd rather read more about the main couple. Although I didn't do this until near about 4/5ths into the book and only did it with certain characters I knew would die quickly. So if you find things get a bit dry later than doing what I did may help.

In regards to personality's, I really liked the ML. The MC was a bit viscous for me

Like when the MC had everyone in rape-happy-prince's palace killed, including the maids and all. Granted I get it was done so as to not leave any evidence but at that point the MC had innocent blood on her hands. As someone who catches bugs to put outside rather than kill them I have trouble understanding her means sometimes. I feel if she warned people that she will destroy them if they try things with her some events could have been avoided

but I still enjoyed reading about her plotting and how she dealt with things. Her love for her family is endearing as well, she really puts them first, above herself and all. Even if MC has a personality I'm not %100 on board with she was fun to read about and didn't take away from the story for me.

Over all I give this book a 4.8 in regards to web novels on here it is superb and even deserves a 5. The 4.8 is what I give in consideration of physical books I've read that are made in their original languages so that should say a lot.

P.S. May the translator's and editor's foreheads and stomachs rest in peace, oh and their tables... and keyboards? ok, may all their things rest in peace... and not in pieces... You worked hard guys ~pats back

Having to translate a books worth of flowery descriptions for the male lead was really killing them (and many others)

At long last the journey is completed. This novel was a rollercoaster ride of schemes, revenge, faceslaps, drama, romance, and plot twists. The ML is the mischievous little marquis who complements well with our FL.

Shen Miao the MC has grown so much throughout the story. This series will make you laugh, cry, and smile. It has the right amount of bit*h slaps and sugar to keep you satisfied. The dramas didn't take too long to be resolved and I like the overall pacing of the story, even the romance.

I don't find the story nearly as spectacular as the ratings suggest, but it is indeed one of the better ones from its kind. Saying that, it did get a bit boring at some points, but it is a respectable story nonetheless.

This story normally deserves 3 stars, but I will give it 4, because lately I've read too many disappointing stories with flat characters and the terrible act of desensitizing sexual assault.

This is gem. I love this novel. I hope someday, any production or broadcasting station made an adaptation drama based on this novel. I love to see who will be casting as xie jing xing and shen miao. Shen miao actress shouldn't be too beautiful or goddess as long as the actress can pull off the dignified attitude. For xie jing xing, I watched a lot of cdrama but none of the actor can be like xjx. Zhang bin bin in iwnlyg is quite good but still lack of something... more>> when I imagined he as xjx. <<less

Not as compact and laser sharp as Princess Wei Yang but it will do. Is it me or do the characters seem too cold and detached? The two leads don't even have gentler moments to speak about. They're like two bedfellows sharing a bed at different hours of the day. He goes to work at 6, comes home at 2 to sleep, while she's out somewhere working as a hooker or something.

Even the side story of the eldest sister being raped and the mother hearing her struggles in the next... more>> room yet doing nothing to help, seems detached and written more for plot purposes than elicit some reaction from the reader. A similar incident happened in The Royal's Cute Little Wife where a 14-year old girl tried to ruin the MC's reputation by leading her to a room sprayed with aphrodisiac. Instead, the second ML tricked the girl into entering the room then pulled a waiter in after her.

The subsequent reaction tells of the girl's shock and going home to her parents with her clothes untidy and her face distraught. The mother and father immediately knew what happened, and you can practically see their destroyed faces as they watched their ruined daughter go up the stairs crying.

This bit of episode is not even in the overall plot of The Royal's Cute Little Wife but it is haunting.

In Malicious, the r*pe is written like ya, she was raped so what's the next in her revenge arsenal? Even the mother's reaction was perfunctory, like see the trouble you've caused?

I like Wei Yang better. That one keeps you in tenter hooks. <<less

This is a great novel; great read! Not much else I praise about this that haven't been said here.
Love the plotting and the MC is really cunning. Though, I'm not so interested in the romance aspect, but I do find MC & ML very cute. I'm kind into subtle and slow romances like Princess Wei Yang :)

The only thing I have problem with is the way MC treats her family members / those she loves. It just felt too two-faced. Yes, I know she's doing it because of... more>> her trauma and she want to protect them from the truth - however, I felt like she should allow herself to be a bit happier around them and not constantly keep them in the dark. I would like to see a few chapters where she show her emotions more around her family. Dying for some family love moments lol. <<less

This novel is more than great. It's the greatest. Her husband in the past life, Fu Xiu Yi - I was so happy he was not happy with Shen Miao's marriage. He felt it was kind of 'wrong'.

Only on chapter 6 but so far the translation has been I believe excellent except the editor is terrible

Wrong terminology constantly used doesn't effect story much except when it does which so far is all the time

Example - thought likewise but Shen Miao felt that it was embarra.s. Sed to death

... more>> Second Older Sister, what in love with His Highness Prince Ding

Eldest Sister, did you also saw His Highness prince Ding?”

These are a few, very distracting trying to read the story when you get confused about what they are on about

Way way to many characters at start. There is so far 1 family and two branch familys but with the constant use of names, pet names and miss this miss that with no clear distinction who is who.

The start was brilliant <<less
