volaretranslations is definitely blessed to have such an extremely talented group of translators bringing everyone off the beaten path novels! <3 Ruyi, the extraordinary translator bringing you Falling Dreams of Fang Hua along with brilliant editor Khuja, will be wrapping up FDFH soon. (Psst, there's actually only seven chapters left!)
Therefore, I'm extremely excited to announce Ruyi's next project, Poison Genius Consort! I took a quick read through the initial chapters, promptly bookmarked it, and closed it so I wouldn't be distracted into the next century with it. :D Not your typical cliche tropes, it features a strong female MC with a heckuva amount of wits. I adore intelligent MCs. Plots, schemes, counter schemes, face slapping. Oh how delicious. :D
In the novel's own words:
Easily cowed and bullied, she was the useless, ugly woman with no talent in medical skills. Supported by millions, he was Tianning’s most respected duke with the power to move all under Heaven. On their wedding day the bridal sedan was carried to the front doors, but the Duke of Qin’s gates were shut tight.
They told her, ‘Come back tomorrow.’
All alone, she walked step-by-step full of pride through the duke’s doors. Little could they imagine, this unattractive good-for-nothing was a beautiful, genius doctor of poisons!
After transmigrating to the past, poisons expert Han Yunxi finds herself on the verge of being married off to the country’s second most powerful man, the Duke of Qin. Her future life seems set–except her husband is an unfeeling ice block, her in-laws think she’s a eyesore, the empress dowager wants to use her for her own goals, and poison-related plots abound.
Alone, the intelligent (and sensible) Yunxi must carve her own space from the intricate web of court intrigue and the jianghu, relying on her words, wits, and wisdom to survive. Adapt when necessary, use force when required; to survive and thrive is the name of the game to a prosperous life.
No matter what, she’ll prove her right to live!
Until a special day next month, Ruyi and Khuja will be following a similar schedule to FDFH for PGC. Ruyi doesn't do sponsored chapters and keeps to her schedule out of pure will, so please show her and PGC lots of love. Welcome PGC! :D
