A King is Born on the Road


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Iris Lepos.

She was the queen of a fallen country.

Hayer, her husband’s younger brother and her first love, came to her, who remained alone on the throne where even the king had fled.

“Can you find the North Gate?”

The Lepos were born with a map of the world in their head and could find their way in the middle of the desert.

Iris, the heir to the throne, nodded.

And the moment she crossed the North Gate through a severe snowstorm.

She realized. That she’s back six years ago.

“If something changes beyond the North Gate, don’t love me then. Never.”

And knowing that she had the opportunity to save the man who died for her.

“Promise me that you will help me avoid marriage that I don’t want.”

Miraculously given a second chance.

To change her fate, this time she went to Hayer first.

Will she be able to live as a king instead of a shadow queen?

Status: iris!
edit: haven't reached halfway yet, but considering how easy it is for me to lose interest in a series, reading beyond 90 chapters is a feat yet here I am, still interested lol

as the translator, i've only read over 40 chapters as of writing this review, but I like it very much so far (may or may not be biased as the tler lol). It's quite slow imo in terms of getting the plot moving but I personally don't mind, especially since it takes a lot of time for fl's... more>> goal to be achieved. I love ML and fl's dynamic, with ML teasing FL a lot and FL hitting him (gently) because of it, it's exactly my cup of tea

also, I had no clue this was the same author as that "i want to be you just for a day" or whatever it's called when I picked this up. I actually didn't like that series at all and hated the ml, but I love both FL and ML here. Now I'm just hoping it stays good

some of my silly thoughts on the ML and fl:


ML, Hayer Asheri: he's the second son of the king and queen, but illegitimate (the queen had an affair). So he is technically not part of the royal family and doesn't use their surname "Lepos, " and doesn't have a map in his head. As such, him and Iris are not related at all. He is the commander of the Knights of Tejas, and very dedicated to protecting his country. Personality-wise, I love him. Iris describes him as the literal sun and she is very much correct (although he went through quite a bit in his childhood). He is very mischievous and charming by nature, and jokes around like it's his coping mechanism LOL. He's big and strong (twirls hair), and it isn't clear whether or not he actually loved Iris in their first life. He's so caring towards Iris and his knights, and I love seeing him secretly folding inside when he's with Iris.

my favourite part of him is how he's so comfortable with physical contact with Iris!!



FL, Iris Lepos: my nun king!! She doesn't express herself well but she's honestly so thoughtful and her admiration for Hayer has me on the floor. I'm probably exaggerating but it doesn't matter lmao anyway she is very determined to save her country as well, though it stems more from her guilt of not doing anything while she was queen. She's weak physically, but mentally strong, plus she knows how to use a spear!! I'm very excited to see how her character fleshes out. She fell first and I can't wait to see their romantic development :)
