Initially I was not captivated by this manhua, but I am glad I gave it a chance to grow on me. The premise of the manhua seemed rather shallow, and I left off after the first few chapters without the intention of returning. Once the heroine's love interest became more apparent, and his character background was revealed, I became much more interested.
The art style was beautiful. I loved the costumes and historical settings. I also enjoyed the historical details and context in China.
As the story ripened, it definitely took on the feel of a Chinese romance manhua with star-crossed lovers and family intrigue.
