“–Just what kind of pretence is that. Is this some new form of torment?”

Yuna, a plain village girl, suddenly lost her plain day to day life. After being requested to by a mysterious light in a bright white world, Yuna finds herself in the body of a beautiful saint. However, what awaited her there was; the contemptuous gaze of the saint’s fiance, First Holy Knight Asyut; the cold detachment from her attendants; and the tense atmosphere of the entire palace. Yuna, alone in her crippling confusion, still tries to fulfill her duty as the saint’s substitute, until one night when she discovers the saint’s sins beyond the spiral staircase…!?

This is a story about a young girl who dies and wakes up in someone else's body. The twist is, she only has one year to occupy that body before she dies again for real, and the original body was someone truly detestable and cruel. MC struggles to fit into her new role and not cause too much suspicion, but also does her best to live her one year without regrets and leave behind a better legacy for the original girl.

The author really focuses on character development and it really... more>> shines in this novel. The MC's emotions feel genuine and she acts pretty much like you'd expect a bewildered young girl in a difficult situation to. That said, she still has that strong, kind, and stand-out MC quality so you want to root for her. The romance feels like it's gonna be sort of a reverse harem with a strong male lead; I'm really pumped to see how MC and Male lead's relationship develops further.

The religious/political/social undertones also look promising, and the translator did a great job with this. I'm looking forward to reading the next chapters! <<less

I'd have probably given this a 5 stars if the MC wasn't so annoying. She's your typical gentle, caring and lovable main character. In fact she's so stereotypical that it feels like she has no personality. Every time something occurs, she gets away with it and force her way through by simply stating "Because I want to." Even when her surrounding tells her that it will cause huge trouble if she keeps insisting on the matter, giving her reasonable and fair arguments, she just doesn't seem to understand. She doesn't... more>> want anyone to die, she tried to take the blame on herself for the "old" Saint's mistakes, she is dense and doesn't notice others' feelings. She is so "pure" that it becomes really annoying, I like to read a MC that uses her head, that uses reasoning and that is smart. I don't want to read about a typical Shojo Manga character. The side characters are way too indulging, almost as if they were waiting for her to make the move.

If we have to talk about the world building, it's still a common "Transported to another world and interacting with nobles" setting. It has nothing new so to speak of. The story is not bad but the setting kind of throws it off. <<less

This is very similar to "And so the Girl Obtained a Wicked Girl’s Body" except whereas that one is more of a cute heartwarming story, this one is more mature and kind of dark like "I Reincarnated as a Noble Girl Villainess But Why Did It Turn Out This Way?".

The plot is interesting, the characters are interesting. It makes you want to watch over the MC's struggles. The low chapter numbers might seem like a short read, but it's definitely not. The chapters are extremely long. And there's still... more>> 80+ chapters to go.

Translation quality is excellent. It's pretty much perfect. <<less

I'm sure everyone's encountered this constantly rehashed premise of transmigration. However, one particular promising feature of this novel is actually the translation. The language is seriously far more mature and masterful than the average translation-- even more so than incredibly popular and well sponsored translations (such as some Chinese wuxia novels). The English is smooth as butter. But idk maybe I'm just too hyped up about the fact there's a translation that doesn't hurt to read.

Apart from the translation, this well-wrung trope is intriguely executed through solid character development.

The translation for this novel was done wonderfully and I thoroughly enjoyed reading every chapter. With each chapter fairly long you can easily immerse yourself in reading it.

When reading the novel, I felt that the characters were really brought to life. Simple descriptions to let us picture them in our minds coupled with the interactions between the characters made for an enjoyable read.

The MC is caring and kind but she needs an injection of something more to give her more personality. Maybe I am just used to reading about feisty... more>> female leads...haha It will be interesting to read about what the future holds for her when she learns more about Celiastina. <<less
