He hides things from the MC. I mean I guess I can understand but after reading a lot of books where the ML can trust the MC absolutely and doesn't hide anything, this one doesn't sit well with me.
The MC told the ML she understood what animals were saying and he didn't believe her. I disliked the ML even more when he thought she was still hiding stuff from him. I think he's just projecting his own thoughts on her. This ML is broken. Probably would have liked him more if he'd been potrayed as the bad guy from the beginning.
MC sounds a bit whiney at times. She's definitely weak but she doesn't seem to think she's weak? You know, until someone who can beat her in a fight comes along (that's like everyone else in the story). Also the love interests were annoying. The ML was annoying too. They're too possessive, bordering on yandere. They seem to want to hurt the MC if she doesn't listen to them. THAT IS NOT LOVE!!!
I almost wished the MC had the balls to commit suicide more than 5 times in the book...
Anyways, I like how adoable this MC is. If the prequel's (The Good For Nothing Seventh Young Miss) MC was awesome in the hilarious and comedic inner monologue, then this MC is awesome for her (almost) unshakeable pokerface and trouble past.
I started this book before I finished the prequel so I was sort of surprised when
the ML in this novel was one of the antagonists from the previous one but with his memories erased.
If I had to say, the plot here seems more developed than its prequel (which is to be expected since the author is improving). Some of the same tropes are re-used though:
When the FL gets pregnant, everyone is just like "We're doomed." Because she's leading troops! I remember the ML's uncle, the Emperor, was staring at the ML's stomach and to quote the author "wishing the baby was in his stomach instead"
Started on the whole empire building process, it became more like watching simcity. Then when he became God, it got even more ridiculous.
At around chapter 1600, the MC pretty much jinxed her happy life
