* Quick transmigration is a genre where the protagonist travels into the body of a person or character and have to live their life for a period of time. Usually, books of this genre are like one book with multiple stories, called arcs, within.

Available as: Webnovel


Quick Transmigration: Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder follows the journey of the main character, Chu Xiang. In her original world, she was a demonic cultivator** who embraced her role as a villainess. On the verge of dying, she escaped using her magic tool, the Universe Mirror, and travels across time and space enjoying herself and learning new skills. There are fifteen arcs: eight modern worlds, two alternate ancient China, one ancient cultivation world, one cultivation world***, one zombie apocalyptic world, and two alternate worlds in the 1970s.

** Cultivators are characters who upgrade their abilities through studying martial arts

*** Ancient cultivation world is differentiated from the ancient and cultivation worlds because usually ancient arcs focus on being in the harem of the emperor while cultivation focuses on upgrading abilities while this has both in one arc


I would recommend this webnovel to adults who enjoy stories about strong female protagonists. The aspect that I most enjoy is the character of Chu Xiang. She perseveres and uses her skills to silence the people who dislike her. She also remembers to put herself first, not settling for a romantic partner if they do not feel right for her or have different end goals, such as having children.
