It's the story of a girl that got killed by her father because of her step sister, and a treasure related to a phoenix. She get reincarnated in the same world in the body of a girl with missing parents, then she went looking for her parents and her brother and she tamed the 4 mythical beasts.

I also remember that in the story she found some white haired guy (male lead). Her parents (after reincarnation) left her with her paternal family to protect her but they bullied her.

Her brother joined some sect (he's a prodigy).

    @ManouLa - please edit that information into the question, rather than leaving it as comments on an answer. When you are looking for a book that will help people who are trying to help you identify it. Afterwards, it can help others looking for the same (or a similar) book.

Could this be Born of Embers by Quinn Arthurs?

I always knew I was different. I’d thought it had to be hidden - to stay a secret. I didn’t know my secret would become the key to my survival. Turning eighteen and getting accepted into college brings me everything I need to escape from the nightmares of my past but I never could have imagined my nightmares - and dreams - were just beginning.

Main character is killed by her father and reborn due to her relation to the phoenix of mythology.

  • No I'm sorry it's more of a historical fictionnal novel with an emperor and sects
