What if the man you love loathes you to the point where he wouldn’t care if you die right in front him, you live in the same palace but you are always scared to look him in the eye unlike before when he used to care about you, every single detail.
This is the plight of Huo Yu Yan.
The novel tells the story of the love between a partially amnesiac general surgeon and a military surgeon who would rather gain her heart again than force her to remember their past, he chooses to be her present.
After getting the happiness they have always yearned for, she ends up going into a coma where her soul is combined with the soul of the young mistress of the flame sect who is also at the verge of death.
But only one of them can survive, the moment one remembers what she is not supposed to remember, she dies.
He used up his only chance to save the woman he loves but he ended up saving another woman instead, seeing her smile with a face that is not hers and act carelessly with a body that doesn’t belong to her, he loathed the sight of her.
phoenix_8888: At the request of the dear author – prettydimples, I have added this book in my library and checked it out for a review. Here’s my take on your first work. Long comment below.
Overall its a decent novel with some slice of life with the leads that would transfer to another world. However, for me who do not care for too much details thinks that the chapters could be shorter and details reduced. Reason, I speed read/skip the details and get bored easily when I do not think it adds to the chapter or the story. A reader must feel entertained, I’m reading the chapter but as it get longer – I’m wondering when does it end or what’s the aim. e.g. The other world – there is the backgrouind in which- there are 4 kingdoms, fire being the weakest, the queen gave birth to twins one being more powerful than the other, only the mother has the ability to withstand her power. To protect his kingdom & people the fire king made a deal with the wind kingdom with the more powerful twin being a hostage. The wind kingdom found out to their demise her power and negotiated a new deal with fire kingdom that the child would stay with her family until she reaches 5 years with her mother to guide her. The girl at age 5 was imprisoned in a cave by the wind kingdom. The FL somehow has a connection with this twin from the other world. That’s a quick summary of what I got from the chapter which was pretty long. The aim of the author is to give the reader a background introduction of what is to come.
There is also grammar issues with redundant sentences, but I’m uusally light on that because as long as I understand the gist of it, I’ll brush it off. But these sentences add to the unnecessary lengthening & no value of the chapter.
Am I into the novel – I would say no but thats not because it lacks potential, its just that I’m not invested in the characters as yet and its too early to say. The story does have potential, but its not that entertaining so far, my emotions are not there, I read it because its okay. Would I recommend this story to others – I’m not sure, its a matter of personal taste, but this story will remain in my library for now. I may give a 2nd review after reading more.
