Nice because it was recorded in multiple voices. After a few modern stories, I decided to go back to listen to ancient story. Xiao Ye Guang and Xue Yue Zhi Xia voices are really nice. Yun Tian He took a small part in this audiobook. Highly recommended.
FL (Chu Hua) is an actress from the opera staff. She was recruited to impersonate Zhong Shan Wang (Rui Hua) due to her look. ML (Yuan Yu) is also known as Shuo Bei Wang, a general that was assigned to guard the border. They met at the palace. FL’s grandfather died because of Qi Wang. She took on the job of impersonating Zhong Shan Wang with the intention of getting a chance to kill Qi Wang. In one of her attempts, she was saved by ML. ML’s brother (the emperor) was jealous of him and has always worried that ML may overthrow him hence he plotted to kill Qi Wang and frame that to ML.
It was later revealed in the book that Rui Hua and FL are actually identical twins separated at birth. Rui Hua was brought up at the palace by the empress mother and FL was sent to her maternal grandfather.
ML helped Zhong Shan Wang to regain his throne which the empress mother was trying to replace him. ML convinced FL was to help him to make bomb for his military use. In return, he will accompany her to Wu Wei to visit her Grandfather’s crew.
When ML got to know that one of the FL’s childhood friend loves FL, he quickly confessed to FL before it was too late.
There were clashes between these two lovers but after a short separation, both realised that they could not live without each other.
