I picked this audiobook since it has touched more than 15 million listeners. And it was recorded in male and female voices. I am starting to like Ming Yue Zhao Jing Lun voice and will start to search for his other recordings.
There were lots of angst in the story and some people may not be too comfortable as there few parts on non-consensual sex scene. I almost gave up listening when I reached the part where she was accused, had a miscarriage and was killed. I hated the ML and felt the FL was too weak. Somehow, I managed to finish the story and even listened to it twice.
FL – Su Qing Qian/Liu Li. ML – Lian Che.
FL (Liu Li) is a dancer in the modern world but passed away due to an accident during a stage performance. Her soul was transported to the ancient world into the life of Su Qing Qian, the left minister’s daughter. Apparently the previous Su Qing Qian was in love with the 9th prince who is her younger sister’s fiancé. She killed herself and soul of Liu Li woke up in her body. The new Su Qing Qian realised that she was not like by many people especially the emperor hated her for being shameless in throwing herself at 9th prince. But FL was not aware of what had happened and pretended that she had amnesia. The emperor’s mother likes her and asked her to serve as her personal maid. She was then assigned to the emperor’s chamber. ML does not like FL and almost killed her in one occasion until his lover, FL’s adopted sister (Zhu Yian) begged him. ML and 9th prince did not trust FL and suspected that FL entered the palace because of an ulterior motive. ML fell in love with FL during one of the trip and also realised that FL was different from the previous Su Xing Xian. FL also fell in love with ML and could not stand watching the loving scene of ML with Zhu Yian hence she decided to take up the offer from Yan Ming (a bodyguard to a prince from another country) to leave the palace. When Yan Ming won a contest, he requested for her hand as his prize from the emperor. The emperor was not willing to let her go, he raped FL to keep her from leaving him and the palace. After that, FL became the emperor’s woman but she was not given any title. During a heist, FL was accused as her father’s accomplice. During the questioning, she was treated harshly resulted in a miscarriage and was killed. In actual fact, Yan Ming had giving FL a pill to make her look as if she had died. Her body was replaced and moved to another country. She lost her memory and started her new life. When ML realised that FL had not died, he went looking for FL. He also realised that Zhu Yian was involved in the plot to get rid of FL. FL went back to ML after realising that ML loves her. She also realised that she was just a pawn used by Yan Ming but Yan Ming had also fallen in love with her. There were few misunderstandings between FL and ML but it ended happily for both of them.
