A Saint Who Was Adopted by the Grand Duke


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

I was forced to live in captivity for the rest of my life because I happened to be aware of the fact that I was a saint. I was truly a ‘real’ saint, but that didn’t matter, because there was already a designated saint in the temple.

When I died from all the abuse I endured, I was sent back to a time before all those previous events in my life had happened. After 15 regressions, I was exhausted. I prayed, “I don’t want anything to do with this, so please just let me die,”

And at that moment when I could finally be able to die, someone said, “How about being my daughter?”

…. That monstrous duke had adopted me.

I'm very sad that the translation was taken down, I thought it was very good quality. I don't know about the new tl quality as I haven't read it yet, but the plot is very sweet. The MC does not get overpraised or doted on immediately. The characters feel like they aren't horribly blown up either. A lot of authors tend to exaggerate emotions so that readers understand and pick up on them, but this one didn't have that problem. I loved it!

So far, this seems like the typical mistreated MC gets adopted by an indifferent duke EXCEPT!! He actually shows the traits of a concerned father to his other children. Prior to meeting the MC, we see him deeply contemplating how to improve the mental health and lives of his twin boys. This alone sets this story apart since he’s not just a person who will neglect everything except the MC. I have high hopes

I love this! The MC breaks my heart. As told in the summary, she dies 14 times, and she is just done with life.

I love that the Duke it not the stereotypical cold man. I mean, he does kill in a heart beat, but he actually has feelings guys!!

For the translation I give it an 8/10. The previous review made it seem so awful I was really nervous to read it in case it was imposible to read, but it's not? It's not perfect I admit. There are part where... more>> I just said "what?" out loud, but it's Wattpad, most of the time there will be a comment of Translator-nim explaining or somebody that didn't get it and then gets explained. And if you think about it a little it makes sense!

I personally don't like to complain about the translation most of the time. It's a pain in the behind to translate Korean, I've tried and for me, it took about 5-6 hrs to translate just one chapter. I was using more than 5 translation pages just to try and piece one sentence together and/or trying to figure out a slang or korean saying. So I appreciate it!! Bottom line, if you read up to here, please give it try, I believe you will not regret it! <<less

I read this novel to the very end, and I must say, it's definitely one of my top novels. The characters aren't too juvenile, and the female lead is just the right amount of weak and strong. She's the saintess of the generation, and she has the most holy power, but she is very pessimistic of life because of her past lives. Most novels where the female lead is pessimistic drag out the frustrating sections to the point where you want to shake the female lead and tell her to... more>> get a grip on herself because she has a new life now, but the female lead grows emotionally at a reasonable rate in this novel. Also, I like how she's not just a princess waiting to be saved, but kind of the other way around!

There is a section in the middle where it gets too long for my taste, but I see why the author wrote it. Also, omg, the other cover is to die for! It's so cute I can't even. <<less

A doting family/father who has tendencies to be protectice (maybe yandere) with no common sense ? hell yeah count me in :D

Its only 3 chapters but you allready hate so much people (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻... poor Daina. How painful must it be to relife a cruel life not only once but 14 times. I hope we will get a decent ML for her. Looking forward for the fluffy actions between the FL and her future family. May the shitty people rot in Hell. (ง'̀-'́) ง

Ahh the prologue is really upsetting and you (as the reader) will just want to shank the wretched pieces of sh— in the temple for the horrible child abuse.

Based on the little snippet at the beginning, however, it seems her future guardian (the grand duke) will properly treasure her as they (the supposedly frigid/scary men) tend to in these age regression novels. That's good. I really do like that trope a lot so I'm really looking forward to that.

The translation is done nicely. I'll return with updates when there are... more>> more chapters. <<less

This is really good. I'm normally strict when I write reviews about novels like these, but this novel just captured my heart. There was no flaw with every character there. The Grand Duke was a great father, he's not the cliche kind of Dad that ignores everyone including his own kids except for the MC. He's the kind of Dad that's actually a great Father. He shows concerns for his own children and even tries to think of ways to make up for their mother's absence and his absence for... more>> always being busy. He's not unnecessarily crazy, he's very just and rational. The brothers are very practical and normal too. They don't like the MC immediately just cuz of something she does, they are actual big brothers! First they asked for a little sister, then they got one. But Judy didn't like her immediately, he even forgot about his promise and stuff. Eventually, like all kids, Judy falls in love with his little sister bit by bit. He felt the need to 'protect' her, (like an older brother which is very cute) when Esther shyly called him 'brother'. There's also Dennis, that's a little taller than Judy, that isn't unnecessesarily 'smart but cold-hearted', he's very cute lol. The trio (dad and twin brothers) are very cute. MC isn't s*upid too, she's very quiet and also very tired, but she seems very happy in this life. She isn't unnecessesarily praised for being so adorable and smart like other mcs, she is treated very normally but with a bit more special care since she's adopted and very thin. She's a normal child for her age! I have a very hard time explaining, but you just can't help but love this novel. The temple is really annoying and hateful though. Seriously. At this point, I wish she could use her powers freely in the care of her family and not the temple. The prologue could also give you the 'cant help but love her family' feeling. That's right! She's not a Saint for the temple but his daughter and their little sister!! It's her choice and freedom to do what she wants!! The duke never adopted her just cuz she's a saint but because he likes her!! Shoo away temple!!

Anyways the characters and their reactions and interactions are so realistic that I fell in love with this book. You should read it, tbh. I hate the temple tho. MC deserves to be happy!!! <<less

Edit: updated this comment for more relevant information

It's really good, but I for some god awful reason the non-official translations keep getting reported. Its really goddamn annoying, bcs this story is an absolute masterpiece.

The last group who did it tried to keep it on the downlow by using a separate app to publish their translation, but I guess that someone outed them. Which sucks bcs the other stories they were translating were also pretty good.

... more>> RIP Crown Brings Honor, you will be missed.

I just wanna read this story man. The farthest I've read is up till chapter 48. <<less

This is one of the most enjoyable stories I have read. Characters, plot, setting all excellent. There is a reason why you look down the reviews and you can’t find a negative one.

This is a drama and if you don’t enjoy these types of stories then that is fine but I can’t fathom how anyone could give this a 1 or 2 star rating if you base it off of the writing and translation.

It's so cute and heartwarming. The family dynamic is the sweetest I've seen among novels like this (Baby Raising a Devil, Becoming the Villain's Family being some of my favs). The dad is such a doting fool for his kids and the kids are all cute af in their own ways.

Our FL is a goddamn legend. Love her. Let's see more healing and revenge please.

While reading, especially in the earlier chapters, I had constant tears in my eyes from how heartwarming it was for the MC to finally receive not only basic human decency, but actual affection T^T

If you're a sucker for found family tropes like me and enjoy getting your heart broken and built over and over again, then this one's for you.

Seriously, I had to pause reading so many times because I was tearing up and it was difficult to breathe. Our MC has been through so much pain, and seeing her with her new family and experiencing the more beautiful things in life while also dealing with her trauma was just too much for my poor heart to handle. I adore this family. And... more>> I love how the Duke actually cares for his children and actively tries to be a good father to them. 10/10 parenting right here.

Give this one a try and remember to thank the translator! <<less

Novel not recommended to read.

MC is a sad abused girl who wants to commit suicide due to her terrible 14 lifetimes.

She is adopted by the Duke who is kind, and then things swiftly spiral out of control.

The novel basically becomes a tr*shy mess after author has MC become the ultimate saint by adding:

... more>>

A mysterious cursed handsome prince who knows everything about MC.

The former saintess easily discovers evil R woman is behind everything and meets MC.

Both of Mc’s brothers discovering Mc’s Saintness and telling no one.

MC healing people, getting a venomous snake, and sneaking out.


She swiftly is no longer fearful, has a super crush on handsome prince, and starts lobbing diamonds all around. It’s not heartwarming but instead absolutely ridiculous. There’s very little reason to read on even if you include the Mc’s eventual revenge or possible romance. There’s far too little to the story along with even more ridiculous world situation. Mc’s adoptive father is also a useless waste in noticing nothing about the MC and the earlier foreshadowing about evil doctor and investigation of Mc’s origins are going nowhere. MC doesn’t do cute stuff either so really, there’s no value here.

-900Quintillion/10 Mediocre and lacking in every way. <<less

This is such a lovely story. Even though it followed the usual storyline of being adopted by a duke, it has a unique style of its own. The duke is not too cold to his children and the kids have their own behaviours.

The more I read, the more I'm getting pissed off by author's blatant way of prolonging the story with unnecessary filler.

For example, MC was supposed to tell her father something but nooOOOO— you can't do that in ONE chapter; let's prolong it so it will take TEN chapters.

The plot may seem basic at first, and I can't exactly disagree, however I think the author's skilled writing and subtle details make up for it. The details of each character makes them feel real. For example, the ML (Noah), is typically pretty mean and reserved towards others. For people he hates, such as the villainess in this story, he's super cold. But when Esther and Noah are together, you can tell they're comfortable with each other and are closer to each other than they are with any other character.

As... more>> for the plot, yea it's your typical rofan childcare novel, and a lot of people are especially weirded out by the fact that she's 12 but acts younger. For me, I think I can excuse that fact because she's lived a repetitive life of abuse 14 TIMES. She's finally found people who care about her and she's going back to being young and happy. I like this novel especially because it doesn't stress me out with a bunch of evil plots, instead it's a mix of plot and cute family moments. <<less

I really like this novel. Esther is so adorable but the lives she has lived are so horrible. Throughout the reading, you want to do two things: hug her and go blow up the temple. Luckily her new family is there and I hope her new daddy will blow up the temple for us!
