Didn't expect to love it. But I do! The ML (I suspect he will be the one) is awesome! There is teleportation on top of other usual transmigration arc. So far FL has been getting the upper hand! Translation is good too.

The synopsis is lacking. In fact, I read it even though the synopsis didn't interest me.

FL is a assassin/doctor from the future/other world. She is killed by the man she loves and hopes to marry (fiancée is incorrect as they haven't really talked about it). He kills her to... more>> get her heart for his other love (?) - her sister (?). During the heart extraction, she wakes up as the anesthesia doesn't work on her and manages to kill him and herself. She wakes up just as she is about to fall into a trap set by fiancé and sister in the new world. She manages to escape and meets who I think is the ML on the way. There are some funny scenes. She makes it back in time and her revenge resumes. She is an assassin and good at disguise. She has a bunch of adventure. And oh, there is an interesting gadget too - which may even qualify for a pet.

I feel story is a bit slow because the author took time for character development. I loved reading 205 chapters in one go. I am now trying to accumulate chapters to read. <<less

The translator is doing a good job but the story is not worth it. MC is typical assassin/mary-sue thrown into trash re-incarnation with all the fixings (wicked step-family, worthless/uncaring dad, fiance that wants to toss her to the side... oh! and there is a OP tool/power-up; can't wait for the usual mystical pet to show up) ~^-^~ Reverse harem as usual just coz and if this hasnt gotten formulaic by now.... argghhh the chapters are short as hell but TL speed is amazeballs. This is not exactly wipe my ass... more>> worthy but pretty close <<less

Another assassin transmigrated shoujo novel. sigh*

Why oh why...

this starting to give me an image that all MC in shoujo novels are venomous, full of hatred for revenge, or full of schemes...

that would ended up suddenly (probably) become docile and meek like a lamb after they have a boyfriend/husband...

*Look at Description* Follow Gu Xijiu on her journey to discover her one true love!

*Look at Tags* Rape

You can recognize your one true love when they rape you.

... more>> (Fully intend to read and then re-review. Not a good first impression but I enjoy cultivation stories.)

Edit: As of chapter 56, the only rape has been in the first few chapters of a random nobody. If this story needs the Rape tag, most of the cultivation stories need a Rape tag.

Very not into of the main characters being raped. So with that sorted out, so far it just seems like a typical Transmigrated Female Assassin MC. Not enough has happened to see if there are any unique points. <<less

Edit// I read up to date (currently c146) just to make sure I wasn't being hasty, and I stand by my initial opinions.

Honestly I'm not sure what to say... I try to give at least 10 chapters before I really judge whether I like a story or not, but I've read 32 chapters in and feel like I've just wasted my time. 32 chapters might not seem like enough considering these chapters are fairly short, but I don't think I'll be continuing this... Maybe if I'm super desperate.

I rated 2... more>> stars because it's not "get this thing out of my sight" terrible, but also doesn't have anything redeemable enough to break into "average-normal" 3 stars territory.


... Are there any?? Fast translation maybe.

Cons (this might get lengthy) :

- Plot

It started off kinda interesting, where MC is in a perilous situation and has to find a way out of it. But honestly, 30 chapters in and it's downhill... Author, are you underestimating the intelligence levels of your audience?

I mean, I'm an easily pleased reader. Give me something interesting and I'll go on auto mode and won't complain. But the plot armor and the scheming is just not up to snuff. Basically, the IQ and abilities of everyone else is lowered to make the MC look good. Add in some ass-pull abilities/luck-logic to grant to the MC so she can get things done quick and easy, and that's basically how all the conflicts have been resolved so far.

- Writing

Another issue in itself is the writing. Don't get me wrong, the translations are ok (tho I can't really say anything since I don't know Chinese). But this author is a classic case of "Tell, don't Show."


There is a part in ch 30 or something where the author entirely glosses over the matter of MC finally getting some maid servants from her evil stepmom.

She weeds out the spy using a trick and punishes her severely and sells her away. She presents the evidence to her father too so her stepmom can't say anything about it. Then she proceeds to use some psychological mojo on her other servants to make them paranoid that they'll be ratted out if they're a spy, and they end up coming out to her themselves...

Mine is a little more summarized, but that is practically what you get in the actual text.


Definitely one of the least well-written works I've read of this genre... The chapters are short as well, and the pacing is downright horrible. Is the author a newbie at this or something? To be honest, I found myself laughing out loud at how ridiculously cliché the story developed at numerous intervals.

- Characters

These characters are about as original as a mass produced popsicle stick.

It's been 30 chapters and all I've seen is a Mary Sue MC, a typical cold and ruthless ML (presumably), your typical "I don't care" Dad who hates MC because of her mother and cuz she's trash, a scheming step mom-daughter duo who are white lotus b*tches, an idiot Prince who wants to break the engagement with MC cuz he's sleeping with her sister, and this perfect (?) nice guy Prince who's probably more than he seems and has already taken a liking to MC (but why) but will probably fade out later anyways. Everywhere I look, it's cookie cutter, cookie cutter, cookie cutter...

It's fine to use tropes, but with nothing original or with no good writing, how are you supposed to capture your audiences' attention??? How are you supposed to stand out from all the other generic stories already out there that you're taking tropes from??? I honestly don't understand why this has reviews with 5 stars????

I mean, you can tell me that I need to read more, or that it gets more interesting later on... But honey, it's been 30 CHAPTERS. I think I've got a good grip on the author's writing style by now, and it's just not cutting it...

If you're desperate for a generic genius female assassin transmigrates into trash young Miss who is hated by her family and rises to kick ass and make everyone worship her/take revenge, then this might be for you. But seriously, this feels like one of the lower quality ones... There are better ones waiting to be read out there. <<less

Good, flows quickly. It helps if you allow a large number of chapters to stack up before reading (I read all 81 translated chapters in one seating) as they are brief. They are not as short as other similar stories, at least each chapter has something happening in addition to the dialogue.

The introduction might throw off readers but it is a nice change to see a MC that is immediately thrown into dire circumstances instead of waking up after the fact. In this case the MC woke up just in... more>> time to formulate an escape.

Story wise it isn't too distinct yet: you have the familiar super skilled woman thrown into a younger body of a bullied daughter, complete with a birthmark that mars her innate beauty. The basic background is established quickly: stepsisters, reluctant royal fiance, rival princes... There are a bevy of bishonen surrounding the MC's circumstances, each intrigued by the MC's skills and indifferent attitude.

Speaking of skills, don't take this story too seriously. I get the impression that the author tacks on more special powers whenever convenient, including teleportation and magical medical treatment. I categorize this sort of story that does what it needs to get the story flowing quickly without being too bogged down by details.

What kept me reading (other than the number of chapters already translated) was the ease of reading. The translation is not too awkward and flows nicely. It is definitely helps in an otherwise retread of an often told scenario. <<less

I normally don't write reviews this early in a series, but it irritates me when a decent series gets a bunch of low scores with no explanations.

While this story has the basic trope of amazing assassin transmitigates to trash, the translation is good, the world building is decent, and characters are interesting. So the only reasons I can see for the low review is the supremely awful summary (meaning they didn't read the story) or that it is a qidian release (enough said). Both of those are not good... more>> enough to throw a so far decent story under the bus.

At the moment I am giving it 4 stars cus it shows promise, I may latter give it a low score if it truely is that bad, but for now it is still too early to tell. <<less

This novel is very good. What an interesting read! I admire MC a lot, she is very smart and likable. Male lead, on the other hand, is mysterious and charming.

Highly recommend to read it. I don't understand why the rating is so low. By the look of it, the novel is greatly underestimated.

Well its a hidden gems alright. I read many types of novels like this. Although most of them are similar each one of them had their own charms. A good read and I could understand the plot easily. Looking forward for more chapters soon.

I love this novel. I pretty much like all novels of this genre, unless the main character becomes stupid after meeting the male lead or something like that.

The main character stays brilliant in this story, although I’m not completely sure who the main character is.

I think that the story is exciting. This type of story needs to be read in one sitting since waiting for updates will only break the flow. Other than that, I really like the MC since her ways of dealing things are like the antagonists- acting like a good child but bearing fangs to those she hate. Of course, the slow romance is a bit upsetting (125 chapters and they only met each other once, or the guy is always on disuises), however, I still like it since at least... more>> the MC can explore more of her independence and she does not need to depend on the ML to back her up. The most confusing thing in this novel are the side characters- mainly thbecause princes' names. I cannot differentiate them. All of them have the surname Rong, but when they speak about them through their titles, I get confuse. The current arc is very interesting though. I love how the emperor is backing her up- but the reason for this is a little sad.

He wanted to know if she is good enough for that bastard, yucky son of his (her fiancee). I mean, shouldn't he ask himself if HE is worthwhile for her? His son is a jerk and a cheater after all. I hope she'll reveal that he and her sister are going to have a baby and break that engagement off.

Also, I hope that when her father see that her potential is higher than her bitchy sisters, he would fully support her- like fully and no doubt. Because even though she does not need a backup, at least until she and the ML comes together, she have someone that she could rely on in that poisonous house. <<less

The main character (specially bred assassin reincarnated as undernourished 13 year old girl) is smart and quite rational. For example, she is very ingenious in fulfiling the revenge needs of the spirit that departed from her current body, no slaughter (well, when not necessary), more "punishment shall fit the crime".

Of course, it is full of tropes, but quite intelligent. Translation is so-so, but brisk, so in less than a year it may be complete (very rare for long novels!)

Decent but only average. It didn't give me the thrill I was looking for. But it's not that bad since I managed to read it without dropping it midway. I was just disappointed at the lack of schemes and undercurrents since everything seemed so predictable for me.

Wow so many people rated it one star. Initially when I saw this novel here with such high one star rating, I didn't want to read. But after seeing it being recommended in most of the novel I read I decided to give it a try and oh boy was I glad I did read it. It's enjoyable with a little humour here and there. (Though the love between MC and ML has yet to develop). The only complain I have here is that each chapters are short.

The first thought some people may have is why's the summary so similar to "poison genius consort"? It is vastly different.

The chapters of this novel are short and the plot could be considered slow... chapter wise. And certainly more fun to read than the aforementioned novel.

Female MC is an assassin but not dark, witty but not anxious. Good with words (requirement of any protagonist to win without fighting). She is considered trash in the family but appearance is the topic everyone discusses.

She has knowledge about herbs and medicine... what happens... more>> when you run into someone with a lofty status and looks so similar to your former life's face is a famed herbalist, such a coincidence must be the works of the author interfering too much, right? <<less

Typical female reincarnation story. Nothing special to see here. I would argue that the style of writing seems more childish than most in the genre which is sort of a feat considering they tend to be aimed at either children or teenagers at best.
