She had a lifetime of fake virtue without receiving a virtuous ending. In the next lifetime, she controls fates with the flip of her hand.

For the step sister who is two faced, she’ll personally rip off that fake pretty face!

But when she personally offered up her body to her nemesis because of a child who she had no fate with, something unexpected happened.

I don't know if I can continue reading simply because it's so heartbreaking, but after seeing many reviews about the breakthrough between the ML and FL, I feel some reassurance. Definitely a good read encapturing the readers' heart, it starts off real slow in the beginning but gradually you end up falling into the pace-- before you know it you're anticipating the next time they meet and for the FL to react positively to ML's feelings.

Will take a break before venturing off into the next scenes and hopefully meanwhile wait... more>> for more translations so I can read it all in one go. I don't know how long I can hold up not seeing these two be happy together. Someone save me lmao. <<less

Good good good! <3

This one is really pretty good, it reminded me of 'The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage' (that is my favourite one for second chance novel) and it focuses on a theme that wasn't really highlighted in that novel, that is their previous life children.

... more>>

In Rebirth of the Malicious Empress the perishing of the previous life children remain a cause for revenge but the MC never thinks of wanting them to revive again, whereas here the unborn child becomes the real and looming reason for the MC actions for like 250 chap


Another great difference is also the fact that the MC does not really have a family that loves her, so there is not all the loving affection of a family we see with Sheng Miao, but everything is balanced by the Male Lead.

This Male Lead is veeeery peculiar, completely different from Xie Jing Xin, and all the others male leads of others rebirth novels. Here we understand from the start that he is OP and absolutely in love with the MC.


There isn't all the process of "falling in love with the MC" where first he gets intrigued because she is different, and then start to think she is cute when she does something, here he already loves her to a really astonishing point. But because of some reasons


she wants to revive her child so she needs to marry and have s** with her previous life husband that abandoned her even if she hates him now, all for the sake of the child


the MC rejects him continuously and hurts him really badly but he does not give up, and this is a great trait of him.


He is also very understanding and wants to give the MC all the freedom she wants, and sometimes he acts in such a cuuuute way

his ears get red when she comes near him to whisper him some plans she has...>///<


They finally "get together" at about chap 250 and at about that time there is also the scene described in the synospsis above, though their dialogue it's a little bit different...

he finds out that the real reason for her marriage with the 3rd prince is to revive her baby so she says to her that having his baby is good too....>///<

But this "finally get together" does not really mean that they start to become a lovely couple, there are still problems, misunderstanding and unfinished revenges... but at least it's a great leap forward from before <3

So, there are few misunderstanding but not really hateful ones, though sometimes you might feel sad for the MC or the Male Lead (especially for him), it's not to the point where you want to kill one of them because he/she does not understand (it happened to me for Princess Medical Doctor, he male lead was really toooooooo s*upid for having misunderstood..).

In conclusion, it's a really good novel, for the lovers of Rebirth of a Malicious Empress this should be a must try! Have a nice reading~ <<less

The beginning was so good that it made the following developments pale next to it. The first few chapters of the novel had this murky, dark, and dangerous feel to it; it gave the story a second layer of anxiety that I really like, similar to a good horror story. Then, the author decided to follow the typical second-life revenge plotline and things turned a little average. It's still good but it doesn't quite give me the same level of excitement and anxiety.

... more>>

The male lead so far has been a welcome change from the typical overbearing and forceful Chinese male leads (I love how he respects the female lead's feelings and decisions!) but we'll see how long his good behavior lasts. Also, I feel like the way the author wrote their relationship was a bit sudden. It kind of felt like she couldn't decide on an effective background story about the purple eyes so she decided to roll with the whole disciple sibling thing without a firm foundation.
Sidenote: The male lead seems a bit different from the image I got in the summary (Maybe he turns overbearing when he's angry?) so I might be getting red herring-ed by the author—which would not be completely impossible because she does throw some red herrings at you regarding the male lead. Readers, good luck not getting tricked the first time.


For people that aren't quite sure of whether to read yet, I've attached a summary of my favorite scene (c61) as a hook:


Essentially, evil stepmother tried to use the whole "she got raped/ruined reputation" plan but fails. Male lead sent four of his personal bodyguards (They have a group name of Twelve Feng or something like that) to save the female lead except she kind of didn't need the saving. Female lead actually had another plan she needed to enact but Feng 3 (Each Feng goes by his number) pressed her acupuncture point and almost ruined her plan. As punishment, she decided to force Feng 3 to crossdress as a female and send him to his master (the male lead) while having him say "Master, aren't I pretty?" Needless to say, the male lead's reaction was pretty hilarious. Feng 1, 2, and 4 were pretty disgusted too, hurting Feng 3's feelings so he became an actual crossdresser for reals to annoy them as revenge.
Best scene ever.

This novel disappointing me in a different way than other novels do. That's because it started out with a BANG! The beginning of the story, not what happened at the very end of her first life (this isn't a spoiler as it happens in EVERY rebirth second chance novel), but the first revenge action she took was amazing. It was cruel, almost in a sickening way, but still amazing. It was something DIFFERENT from the normal schemes between women in these types of novels. It actually gave me really... more>> high hopes thinking... This is a woman who's definitely going to take revenge to the extreme, rather than trading petty tricks with the people who ruined her entire life the first time.

However, this excitement was immediately followed by disappointment. After that one extreme revenge point, it became another generic novel. Every plot she's accomplished in these last 100 chapters is a scheme I've read multiple times in other novels.

The evil step-mother and concubine step-sister want to drug her and have her caught in the act of adultery?... She'll turn things around so it happens to the evil step-sister instead!

It's only these kinds of situations that happen over and over again, each more generic than the last. Normally, I wouldn't have minded it so much, as these kind of plain generic tropes are what we've come to expect from novels like this. However, again it's the beginning of this novel that got my hopes so high. I mean...


Peeling the skin from the man's body, having her master of disguise servant wear it to provoke the guy's brother into "killing" the guy, making the brother think he killed his own brother? Awesome! Then, taking bones from the guy to carve a flower, using his blood to color it? Crazy, extreme, but ridiculously interesting too!


This gave me high hopes. She did all of this with a smile, even excitement. It showed that she in a way was actually and realistically broken in a sense from what happened in her previous life. Except.. all of that went away. It became a boring "I've lived a full life already so I'm calm, always prepared, and can't be caught in all these schemes" kind of novel. A novel where thousands of times when reading you want to slap the MC for saying things like "they haven't suffered enough yet, so I'll keep them alive longer". Damnit, just take them into a dungeon and do those awful things you did in the beginning. Make it a REAL novel about revenge. After that, I dunno, have new characters appear, maybe ones with relations to the people who died become her enemies. It always annoys me when these MCs constantly keep her enemies alive and just poke at them with a dull stick.

I'm sure she'll eventually get her revenge in the end, but 90% of the middle of the novel shouldn't be generic filler just to get there.

The only thing that leaves me hopeful in changing this review score is that this novel is only close to 500 chapters long, instead of the 2K long novels. That hopefully means it won't be dragged out. I guess we'll have to see.

As for the translating and editing, I rate it a 3.5/5. This is strange since the translating/editing job is close to perfect. There are randomly some words missing here and there in the chapters, (actually kind of odd, never wrong words, just missing words) but that's not why I've marked it down.

The reason I marked it so low is because the author made it so every time you click "Next Chapter", it opens up a new tab. This happens to me whether I'm reading it on my PC or my iPad. As I'm reading on my iPad 99% of the time, this is EXTREMELY annoying. That plus him cutting each chapter in half (chpt 10.1, chpt 10.2, chpt 11.1, chpt 11.2), makes trying to read this a suffering experience. I don't know if he did this because some how it'd count as more clicks to his site (I don't know how it works), but it's obviously something he did intentionally. On top of this, between each SENTENCE he'll create a bunch of empty lines to make it seem like the chapter is longer than it is. Example....

Sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence.

Sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence.

Sentence sentence sentence sentence

Sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence sentence.

(The spaces are actually double as wide as what this is showing, but this site seems to automatically delete those spaces to save space. Makes me wish the translator's site did the same thing.)

That's my example of the format. This plus tiny chapters means on an iPad at, even at normal sized font, you're CONSTANTLY scrolling just to read each sentence. Even when you're constantly scrolling, you still only get about 5-7 paragraphs or so content before you have to click next chapter, then go back and close the previous tab or else they'll you'll have hundreds of tabs after a half an hour of reading. This is an extremely uncomfortable way of reading. I honestly would have given a 5 out of 5 if he or she didn't try pulling these, to be honest, easily seen through tricks. I'm the type of person that reviews translating and editing just as much as the story, as it has just as much potential to make or break the novel since it's a translation. If he or she fixes this, I'll gladly change my score. <<less

I am utterly disappointed in this novel. I have never been as frustrated as I've ever been with a female lead. This female lead aggravates me to no end. She loves to make the male lead misunderstand and loves to hurt him. Despite this he loves her so much which irritates me even more because she honestly doesn't deserve him. I have never been as disappointed as I've ever been with this one. Her decisions aren't well thought out and she's impulsive. She hands out pity packets like it's nothing,... more>> which is an extreme weakness. The beginning was so so promising. I really believed that this had so much potential. Instead all I revieved was disappointment. All in all, I do not recommend this. At all. If you want to read a good badass female lead novel that knows how to plan her staps and isn't impulsive, read Rebirth of Malicious Empress of Military Lineage. It's so much better and will not let you down. <<less

I really like this novel. I think it is well written and has a strong dark undercurrent of tension that you don't always find. This is very similar to many other historical female revenge novels (like "The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage" or "The Princess Wei Yang") in that this is NOT primarily a love story. This is a story about revenge and battling the demons that path creates.

There is a romantic subplot and the male lead is very well developed. I think a lot of the... more>> readers identify with him more then the female main character in that he is easier to understand and more relatable, so it is upsetting when he is hurt and pushed away by the MC. But this is a story about hate and revenge, love and romance are not what the MC is looking for. Though readers say it is pointless "misunderstanding" and "angst, " I think that the way she treats him fits her character and the story well (as of chapter 166).

I find it sad that, in response to the negative reviews, the translator has decided to rush through this section of the story with summaries, in order to get to a happier part. Not everyone is going to love every novel. And it can be frustrating when a story moves slowly or goes a direction we don't want, but avoiding such things does not make the novel better, it makes it bland and forgettable.

Edit: They only did summaries for three chapters and then went back to full translations. <<less

had died and her hand slightly touched her (also dead) child and than she shred a tear of blood, while the servants? Was dragging her dead body away.

This starts well, but gets weird quickly. The female lead got too many secrets and too many "super powers" to be likeable. Im ok with her suffering in her last life, but when she got such an arsenal of powerful tools and relationships at her disposal its kinda her fault to end like that. Im ok with martial arts and potent "chinese medicine", but as soon as you involve ... more>>

face changing and

you went too far in the realm of the super-natural. Also the female lead schemes too deep and doesnt resolve her grudges to my likening - she is over-complicating things way too much. The nail in the coffin is the male lead who is basically a case-study of "how to loose a woman that likes you in five days".. All in all its a solid patch-work of petty conflicts, only worth a read if you are in the mood for small-minded women having cat fights but already read the "good" storys.

Another negative is the translators website, clicking next chapter opens a new tab which is extremely annoying. <<less

The beginning of this was quite heartbreaking. Crueler than anything else I've read so far. When Qingwu is given a second chance, she prepares to take revenge using hatred as her main motivator to live on. She is no longer that naïve little girl, finally seeing how two-faced the people around her can be.

However, at this rate she may completely lose herself just for revenge. If she can let go of some of the past grudges, then she'll be able to see that there is the ML who truly cares... more>> about her. <<less

Good while it lasted... but from what I can get from the MTL, it is way too angsty 4 me (-_-)...

It is a decent lenght, with 483 chapters, but the story itself seems unnecessarily stretched out with unnecessary plots

Beginning is fairly enjoyable, but most of the issues crop up cuz our leads arent very communicative & ruthless enough

You know the drill, people. A reincarnation story with the same soul, then revenge, revenge, revenge.

A lady who dedicated her whole life to single man; supported and sacrificed everything to make her lover sit on that dragon throne-- only to be betrayed by her own sister. She then reincarnates when she was just a child and changes everything from there.

What's the difference of TFDC from other stories?

The MC's not so cold-hearted and she faces everything using her innocent facade. The story even began years after she reincarnated and you might... more>> find your self saying "what the hell's happening?" at the start. But hold on folks and you won't be disappointed (or you might, since it started with such a gory scene. Please refer below if you want to be spoiled).


She killed a rather thick-faced man. Skinned him alive and made her follower wear his skin as a body suit. Then after a few chapters the author probably decided she doesn't want any gory scenes anymore and made the other arcs with only schemes and the likes.


TFDC made me hooked. I like it because it was standard xianxia but not at the same time (I'm being vague lol) but hopefully you'll understand me after reading the story. <<less

Like most, I got to 137 ish chapter and just can't anymore. The beginning made such an impact and it was slightly dark, but then it just turns mind numbing and cringe worthy. ... more>>

Her obsession with wanting to get pregnant from a guy who had a cause in her death and treated her like crap is just getting too old. Not to mention, the way she treats her senior brother, is cringe worthy. I find myself really hating the MC and hoping the ML will just tell her later and find someone more worthy.
I have read some spoilers where it says she eventually gets with the senior brother but I can't get through the chapters to get there. I understand for the story to be interesting there has to be some "misunderstandings" and I'm usually all for a few, as it makes it all the more wonderful when they finally get together, but this is just too bad and dragging out for WAY too long.
If I could find summaries of the chapters until she gives up on her idea of having s*x with a guy she despises I would be more interested.


I'm pretty easy going with what I read, and usually not overly harsh. I have read so many reincarnation and transmigration stories, but I still am happy when I come across a new one. Sadly though, this is the first novel that I just can't continue. <<less

Revenge and rebirth, my favorites! The MC finally rebirths and wants to take revenge against her unkind family. Thankfully, in this life, she is a lot more powerful and smarter. The pace is fast and you can feel the suspense building up. The translation is smooth too.

3 chapters in, and I'm hooked.

Deja Vu: It's following the usual rebirth/revenge script, so for the heavy reader, you could probably write the first two chapters yourself, minus the flavor text.

If you're honest with yourself, many of the rebirth and revenge novels are a kind of second-chance high school power fantasy: Avoid the pitfalls of the old life, end up with the power and the hot guy everyone wants to date. The reborn girl is the prettiest, the snarkiest, and the kind of revenge she gets is more about getting... more>> ahead of the people who want to hurt her (and if they trip and fall on their own knives while being dicks, it's called karma). She'll go her own way, being good to those who are good, and paying back slights a hundred fold. But generally, it's a kind of honorable existence. There's scheming, but if the target wasn't a bad person, there wouldn't be a handle in the first place.

Deja New!: From the little I've read and the MTL I've hacked through (because it was so good, I couldn't let it go), this is what revenge is all about! It's vicious and bloody and just *mean*, and it's hiding behind a white lotus smile.

If the usual character kills a man (perhaps painfully) for killing her people, this girl kills him painfully as part of plot 1, then turns his skin into a lure and bones into a gift soaked in hallucinogens to give to his brother as part of plot 2.

I can't wait for more chapters to be translated. Can. Not. Wait. This kind of jagged-tooth vicious takes the usual story up a level and almost makes me pity the antagonists. <<less

The only reason I'm so disappointed was the fact that it started so so good. Then, it started plummeting at rocket speed. The MC for some reason or another loves to torment the ML and honestly at this point I don't know why he's still in love with her. She just keeps breaking ML heart and at the latest chapter, she made some really deep and meaningful and sacred promise and ML truly believed it and.... Guess what? Apparently it was words from when she was young, so it doesn't... more>> count. And WHAT? You can visibily see the heartbreak and despair from ML? Lol whatever I'll still say this heartbreaking words and see him crumble in despair. Then when he leaves I'll sit there and think that I really hate this part of myself.

Sigh the MC is hateful and pitiful. Reading about her reminds of this other review I saw once where the person said if the MC is too pitiful and hell bent on revenge it would be better for the MC to have died. Since it looks like just living is a torment, having to remember the vicious past. This MC is pitiful because her past is so dark and tragic and in her present life she can't let revenge go so she hurts the ML. But also she is hateful as instead of outright rejecting ML to pursue her vengence, she continues to insult his feelings for her by backing out on promises and slashing at his heart.

Honestly the 3 is the pity I have for ML and the good beginning of the novel. <<less

I thought it's a horror palace drama since the first part depicted an MC skinning a low-level villain and doing some voodoo-like things to her sister's fiance but I'm wrong because it immediately turned into a normal drama of its kind. The first part is nice though, kinda thrilling and mysterious and I got goosebumps reading about that.

MC reminds me of Shen Miao and Li Wei Yang (novel version). She's smart. I adore her for her fantastic ideas that, despite not being original, are always cleanly executed. She's the type... more>> who doesn't like to let others take advantage or bully her, doing everything to ensure her revenge gets through in a beautiful way. The ML is of course the typical protective type, but unlike the others which started cold at first before turning into possessive lovestruck fools, he's already like that from the beginning, and I really like that. <<less

This is a second chance at life or do over / revenge type of story.

Though it's still early to say from the available chapters, I do think this novel is a good read. I especially like the male MC, just that he's too much of a wimp when it concerns the female MC. I mean, he couldn't just come out and say how he felt about her her so she just proceeded to her plans you know and end up getting his feelings unknown, well for a time.

Still, the guy... more>> is so sweet to her but kept being so dense, she keeps missing the obvious hints. *Sigh*

Anyways, that's just me and my sentiments but overall this novel is good as well as the current translator (soupybaozi). There are regular updates and I hope this continue till the end :) <<less

As the title said, this is a demonic story.

MC killed tragically in her past life so in her reincarnation she get revenge with her black magic to all those she hate.

Full of gruesome, cruel, ruthless, and spooky mysterious scenes.

scary yet picking my curiosity to how its gonna end.

Edit: the mysterious aura and setting just last for a couple first chapters, the rest are just another soap opera... sob... dissapointing... I change my rate to 2, 5*

The story is somewhat similar to The Princess Wei Young The in these aspects:

  1. Sad past life, horrible stepmother and stepsister, especially her husband
  2. Taking out revenge on the second life, turns to be very clever after reincarnated
But I really hope there's a difference as the story goes on! I don't want to be disappointed. Looking out for more translation though. This is my opinion though I'm new to chinese novels, hoping this novel will be great.

As other reviews said, the novel started out amazingly -- it was great to not have to slog through the usual MC setting up her power process since the author completely skipped to 3 years after MC's rebirth. But after the strong start, the author dropped MC's artistic but bloody methods (which was what made the novel different) for typical scheming you'd usually see from these novels.

One aspect I liked about the novel is the male love interests. First, ML is completely different from what the summary suggests; he's very... more>> sweet to her, always helps her, respects her wishes and doesn't force her to accept his feelings. His character is very Second Male Lead -esque, including helping her quietly behind the scenes (the summary is a bit misleading since what's described still has yet to happen at ch225, so I don't know if he'll change when his bottom line is touched). There are a few other male love interests that are also interesting and likable.

unfortunately, when I say the ML is like a Second ML, this includes being led around by MC and having his heart broken by her despite continuously helping her. MC is traumatized by her previous life and the death of her baby, which makes her completely obsessed with revenge. To achieve her goals, she's merciless to both herself and the people around her. Which is a pity, because when she isn't consumed by revenge she and the ML are really cute together (they like teasing e/o).


she's also obsessed with getting back her baby, which involves sleeping with her previous life's husband just to get back the "same baby" (hence the summary). Yeah, MC's not quite sane. Author also loves angst and torturing ML too much.


Overall: the story falls into typical cliches despite the strong start, but the writing is engaging and the plot moves quickly enough to not be boring (relatively, compared to those 1000+ chapters novels). I did enjoy the first 100 chapters, but when I skipped ahead (ch225) to see how much more the ML had to suffer I realized MC is in too deep in her revenge for the journey to be anything but not torturous, so I can't continue to read. This kind of angst and self-destructive MC is just not to my personal taste. I wouldn't mind so much if this was a shorter story, but I can't bear to read that self-inflicted suffering for 200+ chapters

if you can stand it though, it's a fine read. <<less
