The Peculiars’ Tale

While not a masterpiece, it's still quite enjoyable.

It's fairly different from other things here in NU, mainly due to the MC being generally pessimistic. Stuff happens, but it's a balance of good and bad things for the MC, which keeps the story interesting (i.e. No OP wish-fulfillment nor 100% drama turned in revenge wish-fulfillment).

I wouldn't recommend it to everyone, but it's worth a look as chapters aren't too long.

It's good. It's a classic reincarnated-into-the-villainess-of-an-otome-game novel, with a few key twists;

  • The villainess in the otome basically dies as mook #1 in mysterious incidents. This makes the story a mix between adventure, mystery and action, with romance taking a clear backseat.
  • While the MC played the game, she only got to play two scenarios before she was stabbed to death. Thus, while she does have fairly good info in the first few cases, she'll have to do quite a lot of investigation on her own later on.
  • The MC fights on through the combined power of friendship, cunning, and pure dumb luck. The butterfly effect is strong in this novel, and seems to work in karmic ways.
It's good.
