白发皇妃 The White-Haired Imperial Concubine – 莫言殇 (OE)

Behind the red silk curtain, she was forced to make love, three thousand black strands turned to snow in the eyes of the passionate man on top.

Outside of the red silk curtains, the initiator laughed with beauties and wine, laughingly looking at the erotic show…

When the red was torn, bits and pieces carried into the wind, she difficultly stepped out, with a head full of silver hair dancing in the wind. Ultimately, whose heart is the one hurt?

“Why…why is it you?” An unbelieving cry, he, boasts that he is ruthless, but has plunged into a bottomless hell, eternal pain and regret…

Look, three thousand snow-white strands, glancing behind, breaking ten thousand brave souls.

An extraordinary woman who time-traveled thousands of years, when a head full of black hair turns to snow, when she is labeled as a monster, when she is forced to the edge of no return, will she bow to her fate, or will she change her destiny, displaying a beam of brilliant light…

    Hm, has anyone read this? How does it compare to 夜妖娆 by the same author? I read part of 夜妖娆 but dropped it at around 30%.

    I an also curious to find out how forced-love-making can bleach hair so I skim through the story and here it goes.

    Spoiler//
    She is a time traveler who became Princess Rong Le (aka Man Yao) after she died in the present. Princess Rong Le is supposed to marry the 7th Prince (aka Zhong Zhen Wu You) from another kingdom but he rejected the marriage in her (veiled) face. As she is not keen on the political marriage either, Princess Rong Le suggests that the Emperor give 7th Prince and herself 6 months to know each other better. If 7th Prince still refuses to marry her after 6 months, she will then choose from the other eligible bachelors to marry, which can either be a young, upcoming General or the 9th Prince at that point in time.
    Once out of court, Princess Rong Le assumes the identity of Man Yao and sets up a tea house in the capital. Man Yao charms the socks off the cold, handsome Wu You but he did not realize that he has fallen for her. After Wu You learns that Man Yao is Princess Rong Le, he made use of her and causes her to lose faith in him.
    Man Yao ends up marrying the General but they had a platonic marriage. The General falls in love with Man Yao but not enough not to make use of her (too). Turns out that the General is also the Emperor’s son and he wanted revenge on the Emperor for killing his mother and forsaking him.
    Both potential heirs for the throne tried to take the throne and Zhong Zhen Wu You nearly won. However General threatened him with Man Yao’s life which turned the tide. Man Yao has been force-fed some sicko-poison and to save her life, she must take an antidote before mating like crazy, or else she dies. The General staged an arena of red curtains and forced Man Yao and Wu You to make love with 10,000 soldiers watching. Even though his army can overtake the General and his men, Wu You cannot afford for General to smash the antidote to the ground and so he surrendered.
    The General had thought that the woman in the arena was an imposter who looks like Man Yao but when Man Yao survived the ordeal and came out from behind the red curtains with a head of snowy, messy white, he was truly shocked. “Why…why is it you?!”. Later, Man Yao told him that she has started to trust him in the few months that they are together and has nearly fallen in love with him. But after her ordeal, she now knows who truly loves her – enough to forsake a kingdom and his pride – and swears to be with Wu You forever.
    The first half of the book ended with the General becoming the North Emperor while Zhong Zhen Wu You declared himself the South Emperor. Man Yao becomes Wu You’s one and only royal concubine while the North Emperor never started his harem, hoping that one day, Man Yao will return. Then comes a lot of war, treachery, deceit. Some which tears Man Yao and Wu You apart, some which brings them closer but in the end Man Yao died….. and came back to life (in yet another body) to live happy ever after with Wu You.
    /Spoiler

    A pretty engaging, but long, angsty story. Loved how Wu You loves her but it is incredulous how many other emperors love her. Besides the North Emperor, there is also Man Yao’s brother (Emperor of some dunno-what country) and another Emperor who owns a lot of horses. How can so many men be so deeply in love with one woman? No doubt she is pretty and capable but she has WHITE HAIR dudes, not to mention a powerful husband. I can do without all the angst in the second half which comes from war and battle for power and if you can stand not reading the whole book, I think the first half (about 50-over chapters or so) would be good enough. At least, until she becomes the White Hair concubine.
