This story reminded me of 尚宫 (Shang Gong). The author used real history to create her own version romance between the young emperor with FL. Kangxi has so many wives that you can create multiple types of romantic story out of his life. The author tried to give us a realistic picture on why the emperor make certain decision. The romantic scene is not as romantic as I want it to be but the main point of the story is more towards how the plot started. I like the FL who is smart and practical unfortunately caught the eye of the emperor that caused her to be forever locked up in the golden cage. The audiobook was good as it was recorded in multiple voices. It is more like a radiodrama.
This is the story about the fighting between the consorts in the palace. FL – Wei Jua. ML – Kangxi Emperor. FL was a departmental head in the palace. She used her position to earn some extra money hence was punished. She had also offended the emperor with her remarks. Because of her intelligence and indifferent, the emperor started to notice her. FL did not want to stay in the palace and was planning to leave the palace when it was time to retire. Unfortunately, the emperor started to fall for her and decided to keep her in the palace and even registered her to be selected as consort. No matter how FL plotted to leave the palace the emperor was always one step ahead of her to prevent that from happening. The emperor has so many wives and even if he loves FL, he could not show it as it will bring harm to her instead.
