    Reminds Me Of ...

    Reading this story reminds of a martial arts novel (wuxia xiaoshao) that I read a long time ago "The Book and The Sword" except that it was set in the Munchu period instead of the Ming era. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    live in ancient China

    What a great story about ancient China this was! A story that starts with betrayal which becomes a curse for the imperial family. Hongdi is the Emperor's first-born son. When the Emperor proudly shows his son to his ministers, he is unaware that his wife is giving birth to another son. Twins, a curse, a sign that the gods don't honor him. The Empress Eunich takes the 2nd child and the Empress knows her baby is dead. Hongdi grows up to be an emperor, marries Wen at a young age and is happy with her. As an emperor he does have concubines, but he does not share much bed with them. In a marriage of 10 years, no child was born and he is convinced that they should move, start over. He continues to build the palace that his father is starting to build and on the advice of his ministers he takes on more concubines. That's how Fei arrives in the red city. She met a boy as a child, but after his parent's house burned down, she never saw him again. Until she looks in the face of the emperor. It could be Shihong. The emperor changes after they live in the red city. Full of distrust of everyone around him, he deals punishments based on his thoughts. Even the first concubine to be pregnant with him is not safe. Even his empress cannot escape his anger. To save the Ming dynasty, drastic steps must be taken.Then there is the man with the dragon mask Exciting story, many detailed descriptions of ancient China. The life of an imperial concubine is beautifully emphasized. Love, betrayal, fears, mistrust, you feel it coming through the words.
