Plot had potential   
Rating: 4.5 / 10.0

To be honest, I had high expectations in the manhua. The plot premise is quite interesting, with science fiction and fantasy components incorparated in the beginning; however, after the initial introduction, the entire series goes downhill.

My first problem is with how the author handles character development and dynamic characterization:
-In the beginning, Ji Yan's personality is inconsistent in the plot and constantly changes between a selfish, jealous girl who thinks only about herself, even going as far to permanently disfigure her sister to achieve her own means, to an insecure girl who feels constantly outshadowed by her sister's achievements. After she becomes oppressed by Wu Cheng, the author sets the second personality as default and completely erases any serious faults in her mindset.
-Zhao Yan is practically saintlike with her ultimate perfection. The author writes her character as a cool, intelligent beauty who is incapable of making mistakes, traits that are considered desirable for women in Chinese culture. Almost every misfortune that stumbles upon her path is a result of outside forces or her own kindness, and her personality rarely changes throughout the manhua.
-Yue Jian's personality after she falls in love with Jing Ren is painfully reminscent of another main character of a Chinese manhua directed towards teenage girls, Lin from Qishi Huanxiang Ye. Actually, did I mention only one manhua? I'm sorry, I meant to say almost. Every. Manhua. Protagonist. Ever.

My second complaint is with the love interests:
-Wu Cheng is scum. Complete (non)human trash. Not only does he regularly abuse and humiliate Ji Yan, he also allows his subordinates to have their way with her as well. Some examples of his treatment toeard her include forcing her to remain in ice cold baths or direct flames for long periods of time; using her to lure unsuspecting human men to abandoned areas and making her watch the resulting carnage; regularly drinking her blood despite her obvious discomfort at him doing so; forcing a bat in her bloodstream that causes her excruciating pain whenever she even thinks about commiting suicide or betraying him; and forcing her to present herself to insentient monsters that want only blood and flesh. There is only a sick and twisted sense of love present, if at all.
-Le Lao takes second place in the list of sociopathic lovers. He kidnaps Zhao Yan against her will, killing her father when she does not reciprocate his affections. He also takes control over her mind and forces her to betray her Yue Jian, and then forces her to forget her memories and manipulates her into falling in love with him.
-Xuan Chi dies conveniently.
-Jing Ren disappears conveniently.
-The only guy left who can compete for Yue Zhao's affections is the Student President, who remains unnamed but becomes suddenly relevant in the plot... conveniently.

The plot was generic and hard to follow at certain points; for example, the Mei Yue Min is considered important at the beginning of the story but is almost completely forgotten about until some of the later chapters. The author also depicts the notion of vampires differently depending on the context, treating the Student President's trivial consumption of human blood as morally okay but rogue vampires needing food for their survival as despicable and deserving to be killed.

All in all, the highest I would rate this is a five. It's not the best, but it made somewhat sense and did not feel like a complete waste of my time.
