Synopsis

Returning to a previous life she doesn’t remember, Tori wakes up in a fantasy world as the heir to an empire. One where magic called cultivation rules. While doing research and kickstarting an industrialization, she has to deal with a family of transmigrators, politics, and spirits. Maybe she’ll even figure out why some of them keep trying to kill her.

Life in a different world has its challenges, even if it’s the life you’re supposed to lead.

This is a slightly tongue-in-cheek take on a transmigration/cultivation novel. The story will be more focused on characters than action. A few characters, including the MC, are LGBT+. 

Updates: Mon. & Thurs.

      I've been following this story for a while and have been consistently impressed. It's an enjoyable isekai/cultivation adventure that follows an capable and confident (if occasionally impulsive) main character as she gradually learns about the world she's found herself in and gains the skills she needs to help herself and her mother's empire survive. Along the way, she meets godlike spirits, survives assassination attempts, and delves into the secrets of her mystical heritage. Great overall read!

      A very interesting take on the reincarnation/isekai trope mixed with cultivation. It lives up to the title and turns any expectations on their heads. 

      The story starts slow but strong, balancing character introductions with slow, methodical world building. Info dumps occur as the MC learns things and aren’t even really info dumps, they’re well placed, bite sized chunks of lore that feel naturally sprinkled in. The strongest aspect of the story is the authors handling of portraying the MC as a confused, unbelieving, somewhat uncooperative participant. The MC realistically questions what the hell is going on and spends the first bunch of chapters pretty confused. So far, the story seems to be winding up with some tidbits of a larger mystery being sprinkled in so I’ll be looking forward to learning about those. 

      Stylistically, I found the use of first person to be very well handled. There weren’t too many jarring tense switches and the sentences, for the most part, flowed well. The immediacy and confusing of the MC was well portrayed by the proper use of first person POV. 

      My only gripe with the story, so far, is the MC herself. She feels a bit too samey, a bit too generic for my tastes. I’m sure my opinion will change the more I get to see her development but right now she feels too much like every other transmig/reincarnation MC. 

      I think the author has a very interesting concept on their hands with the mixing of cultivation and reincarnation. It’ll be interesting to follow the story as it unfolds.

      It's been a very enjoyable read. At the time of review it's building up to the big final confrontation between Inaris and

      Spoiler

      Sparky

      [collapse]
      , something that should be the overall final big battle of this current series, but will be overall just the closing portion of the early part of Inaris's life (which we may or may not get to see more of if there are sequels)

      Inaris has been a pretty entertaining character to read and follow, even if she isn't as over the top or bombastic as many other MCs from different novels. Probably the best way to describe her is pragmatic, somewhat stoic, and competent-she isn't an entertainer or showwoman, but if you want something done she's the one you'd go to.

      Spoiler

      When we find out Inaris was a magic designer baby, this makes a bit more sense as well-they'd want someone well suited to being a ruler and someone who is competent and not overly swayed by her emotions. Inaris does actually eventually confront her mother over this and how Acura hid it from her, but they do work things out for the most part

      [collapse]

      While I do get annoyed at some of the dumb decisions she makes, she at least does try to make a point of learning from her mistakes and has shown later on in the series that she actually does learn from her mistakes-especially not charging into battle on her own rather than letting the soldiers and warriors handle it. 

      Spoiler

      Getting stabbed in the heart, playing dead, and having to play shapeshifting sneak to make her way back to her homeland would do that to a person.

      [collapse]

      Of note for Inaris is how she has the self awareness to allow herself to step back and letter those better qualified than her make decisions and decide the details-she doesn't decide she simply must be the one to decide everything and micro manage down to the smallest detail. On a personal note I also like how she tries to be a morally upstanding person and does the best she can to bring a modern egalitarian morality to a cultivation world and implement it in ways that the people of that world won't fight every step of the way, doing things like

      Spoiler

      implementing trade schools and better public education to help raise up the common citizenry of the empire, as well as allowing for qi talent testing of common citizens and entry into the military where they can get more resources, something that hasn't been done previously with the big sects hoarding a lot of resources and playing gatekeeper on who was allowed to cultivate. There was an amusing bit where they develop use of magitech type things that can use qi or electricity, including things that replicate modern day appliances and conveniences like microwaves and TVs and Inaris notes she wouldn't be able to spot much difference between a random apartment on Earth and one in one of the empire's cities.

      [collapse]

      A bit of a criticism is that later parts of the story rely heavily on certain aspects of Inaris's and another character's power for them to find things or what to do.

      Spoiler

      The author does heavily rely on Rijoko's "guidance" or Inaris's "instincts" to skirt around having to explain how Inaris knows how to find someone or what to do. It gets to the point where one time she consciously decides to just randomly wanders around a city, hoping Pops will help direct her to where she needs to go and find her target-and she succeeds. That said- since her father is a literal god and she's a designer baby they made to be as powerful as possible, it isn't entirely unbelievable that it could happen, and Rijoko having guidance and wisdom as part of his divine portfolio does make it more believable, even if it is still suspiciously convenient.

      [collapse]

      Romance stuff-

      Spoiler

      at time of review Inaris's harem is up to 4-her official husband (actually member 2), her first female consort (member 1), her second female consort (member 3-this one she doesn't sleep with, but she is romantically involved with-I think the author has the second consort as an as*xual romantic-no s*x, but lots of cuddling), and most recently a male third sort of consort. The latest consort being one where the guy will only ever be "visiting" and not a permanent resident, so it might be more like an ongoing fling that occasionally visits rather than a proper harem member. All her harem members get along well and Inaris made it a point to get the harem members approval before adding another, along with her taking great pains to make sure her romantic interests weren't feeling pressured by Inaris's status as the crown princess or that Inaris only wanted them around for a fling.

      Speaking of consorts-Yarani, consort 1, is awesome and helps keep Inaris grounded morally and mentally. Yarani is a very kind woman who even forgives some people that did wrong to her, and Inaris notes that she is very lucky to have met Yarani and have Yarani around to help keep Inaris emotionally stable and grounded.

      Update for epilogue

      Series ended much how I expected it to, but that's not a bad thing. It left me wanting more instead of wishing for it to be over, so I'll say it did a good job of keeping my interest.

      Basic spoiler free summary of the ending is that it's very clearly a "the end of chapter 1 of Inaris's life", but it's a solid place to end where it does since most of the major issues and conflicts that came up in the story were resolved at that point

      Spoiler

      Sparky fights with Rijoko when Inaris's forces reach the Zarian capital, sparky invades Inaris's mind and she manages to hold him off long enough for Mior to come in and save the day and tilt the balance of power enough to kick Sparky out of Inaris's mind, with the consequence that Rijoko managed to pin Sparky down and get him to surrender. Inaris ends up getting her lost memories back because of Jideia's foray into her mind and the pressure she put her under, so that's a nice touch. I don't think there were any other major named character deaths (in Inaris's side at least), and part of the contribution Inaris made to tipping the balance in her favor was getting Isuro to bugger off and abandon Jideia (expect to see Isuro in later books! He's a wanderer and already at the level he can dimension hop, so he's a shoe in for showing up in other series by the author)

      After Sparky was dealt with (surrendering and leaving the Zarian empire's lands entirely to the Sky Empire-Inaris noted she was kinda uncertain about not being able to actually end Jideia herself, but admitted it wouldn't really be an option since even defeated Jideia would be too much for Inaris to kill personally and it'd be more political headache than it's worth to try since the other greater spirits had already agreed with Jideia's surrender and Rijoko accepting it) it was basically loose ends getting tied up, including Ceion's father being dealt with and revealing who killed Elis and Elia's dad (someone who'd incidentally already been killed during the war), putting a perhaps underwhelming resolution to those plot lines, but at least all three now have some closure for their respective troubles.

      Elis ends up being the semi permanent 4th member of Inaris's harem, but he clearly didn't stick around all of the time. 

      The epilogue style of history book recounting the years after the story ended was a fun way to go about it, and Inaris did end up having kids with her harem members and having a big loving family
