The ancient saying goes: Most generals come from Guan Xi, while ministers come from Guan Dong.
He Yan was born to be a Star General.
She was merely a stepping stone for her family, and was used as her brother’s substitute. She had fought on the battlefields for years, bringing peace to Xi Qiang, stopping the barbarians… When her brother recovered, she gave up her position with great laurels brought to her name. Without further ado, she was married off.
During her married life, she was forsaken by her husband and even suffered from a strange illness, thereby losing her eyesight…
The young and pretty concubine stood in front of her, speaking softly: “The decoction you had drunk that made you blind, was instructed to be send to you by the elders of your family. But as you know, the dead tell no tales. If you live, you will be your family’s greatest threat!”
A great general of her time, the heroine of the country, died pitifully in the hands of those shameless women, who only knew to fight for a man’s favor… How absurd!
When she opened her eyes again, she had become the drill fields officer’s daughter, who was weak and arrogant, innocent and naive.
They had stolen her glory, taken her life, lead her army and betrayed her feelings! She had crawled back from the depths of hell and would take back everything she had lost, one by one.
Bring the world under her feet and with her beauty and nobility, overwhelm the nine prefectures!
But would she get out easily once she entered the barracks?
Hardly did she begin her adventures when He Yan met her arch-enemy of the previous lifetime, that young hunk whose “enemies would retreat as soon as he attacked”.
The chic and cool female general versus the handsome and ravenous young man. Two efficient generals team up to conquer the world!

Worth reading. It is about the life of He Yan (pretended to be man and fought wars) who was mistreated and murdered in her previous life due to her acceptance of events dictated by her fmily despite being a capable person. Reborn, she now sought revenge and her own destiny. The pace of the story is good. No repetitions. There is some about how people interacted with each other and war strategies and some palace conspiracies. The author gives depth of some of the characters so we understand and view them a another fellow human being with strength and weaknesses. It is only 200+ chapters (I don’t read any stories more more than 300+ chapters).
