“I would rather just go out with a bang!”

For Princess Cecile, being married off to the emperor of a neighboring empire was unavoidable. But wait, isn’t this the same Emperor Estian who’s notorious for being a heartless sadist? In order to maintain her final shred of dignity, the fearless Cecile demands that her future husband carry her all the way from the carriage to the wedding chapel! If this is her fate, she might as well put up a fight before dying at the hands of the handsome emperor. After all, the only way to fight fire is with… more fire?!

Can Cecile become a villain even more fearsome than her tyrant husband?

It's just the first two chapters and I already love the MC. She has the mentality of "if I'm going to die I might as well make the most fun out of it".

She has probably the strongest back bone from Fp that I've seen in a long while.

I look forward to the updates.

So the unloved bastard princess of a small country is being sold to Mr Handsome Super Evil Emperor ... more>>

and while being told she will be killed anyways she realized she might as well go down with a big bang, demanding lots and wanting to drag down her homecountry with her.


Its just the second chapter I read so far, but I feel the rating of 3.9 is unjust as of now so I hope to remember to edit this once theres more progress for me to rate upon. So far I like the MC who suddenly grew balls cause shes like "meh. Might as well" - hope she stays that way! <<less

Oh god, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to review a novel with only three chapters, but dang, this one's pretty fun.

... more>>

MC is one gutsy girl. Hell, I'd go out quietly in her situation, but she went full insane. And what a plot it is, to get revenge on her father's kingdom. I wasn't expecting all her maids to su*cide, however... hm.


MC is not "isekai" into a novel cliche. Just to clear that up.

I'm really looking forward to MC and Tyrant's future interactions. Looks like things are about to get steamy... <<less

I really love it. It's a no bullsh*t type of story. Both the main characters are bold and get what they know they want.

My only issue was that there isn't any smut : (but I can live without.

So greedy for the updates of this novel~

Love it so far~ MC is funny but not s*upid. ML is tyrant but not abusive and seems like very nice partner and husband

so rare to see this kind of romantic story without one-sided desperate love but mutual affection

it's just 8 chapters yet I think it's one of the best romantic stories I've ever read exactly because of MC\ML's interactions

So this world is a novel where The author got transmigrated to (the saintess) a white hair beautiful girl , and the original plot was Some girl transmigrated to cecil body and the tyrant Noticed cecil personality changes and loved her, but the plot got changed where no one transmigrated to cecil body yet and the tyrant start to fall for the original cecil.

but the author In the saintess body seems a mad women

Note that there is a comic based on this novel

I'm ecstatic to have found this gem! I really like the characters and the way they are written... Somehow this novel, reminds me of 'I'm only a stepmother, but my daughter is just so cute'. They have different plots but they both keep excited and interested. I'm really looking forward in to reading more and I hope the uploading of translations is fast and does not take too long.

5 stars. Absolutely HILARIOUS, I avoided this at first because I got spoiled that there was a truth serum involved on their wedding night (I hate non-con) but turns out everything is very consensual and also funny as hell. If you're looking for a deep, complicated novel with machinations and court intrigue, this isn't the novel for you. BUT if you are looking to roll around DYING of laughter, for healthy romantic couples, for a very spunky heroine, then this is perfect. Also I love the twist that the husband and Villainess are in it together. Couples who scheme together stays together. Not telling your partner stuff out of fear is a good source of plot/conflict, but it's also refreshing to see a couple who's so honest and communicative with each other.

The summary for this isn't good. Come children, I will explain. This series is a parody of the genre with a bit of added steaminess here and there. Looking at it any other way would be inappropriate. Most importantly, it is a good parody. I laughed out loud a few times due to the sheer audacity. Familiarity with the genre is recommended. I read the translation by WordExcerpt, quite good overall, but some glaring mistakes happen every few dozen pages.

Slight spoilers from here, but I will sketch the story for you :


First of all, instead of the usual reincarnation into the villainess who then turns around the original story, what we have here is the opposite. The "original work" was already a self insert of a transmigrator taking over a villainess and turning things around and having a harem of ridiculously desirable men. In our story, the villainess, for a mysterious reason, isn't replaced by transmigrator, but remains herself and herself is a pretty great character.

She has to act villainous and crazy arrogant and unreasonable for whatever mostly silly plot reason, and she has talent for this, but she doesn't actually hurt any of the little people. So all the fun without the guilt.

There is however a transmigrator in the story, she just isn't the main character, and is actually the author of the original story. She transmigrates into the Saintess, who is a supporting character in the original villainess story. The author is just wacky and random. She is sort of the antagonist, but probably not. Remains to be seen.

The ML is originally an insane tyrant that starts wars out of boredom due to his dark past. I think there will be some funky plot twists to explain away his supposed villainy, maybe. Just don't think about it. This a parody. He is just a hunky piece of meat with a good mix of danger and catering to the FL.

There are other over the top characters here and there.

Mm personally, didn't take a liking to the FL as much as everyone else seemed to.

As much as she's portrayed as bold an unrestrained, it seems more like boldness out of lack of forethought than boldness stemming from capability.

The writing wasn't great either so I'll be dropping it. Perhaps the good reviews raised my expectations too high which resulted in more disappointment than usual.

I love this novel... Even just in 8 chapters, the story so far is promising... Cecil is just funny, screw that truth serum LOL... The emperor is just as the title, a tyrant, but it was so funny how he interact with Cecil. I recommend you will love this novel. Cannot wait for the next chapter, what will that saintess do hahhaa. Thank you for the hardwork, translator-nim ??

This is pretty good stuff here. It has comedy, romance, goofiness and somewhat serious undertones perfectly balanced and I find myself looking for more chapters. I thank the author and the harworking translators so much (for their work and their work etiquette-not quitting despite being demanded to release chapters faster 🙏😅. If the translators are reading this, I implore you to take as much time (hopefully not too much) as you need, but just don't quit because you guys are doing great and I am afraid that if you do... more>> quit that other translators (if this will be picked up again) will not be as good as you guys. (I'm not just buttering up anyone. Promise 😁🤣) <<less

The story is nicely wrapped, hilarious, and can bring you to tears from laughing (I keep recalling, re-reading the story and crying because of laughing)

Translation is decent, overall is excellent! Keep up the good work!!!!

This is a gem, MC already making me laugh with her attitude, love that truth serum. ML is tyrant but has a good personality, seems to be going with the flow, telling MC to be a villainess. Affection is mutual and theres honesty between them, hard to find in other romances.

I enjoy the story and have a suspicion of the main plot after reading forward in the manga. I suspect the novel will only get better and become quite exciting. Read more in the spoiler tag.

... more>>

There are many hints that the empress was sent to the palace by the Grand Magus and was perhaps even raised by the three guardian magi. It’s possible that she is directly related to the grand magus in some way. She was born 24 years ago, right when the grand magus began to ‘sleep’. Could she have simply sealed her memories or have been reborn or both...? I’ll have to read to find out!


That said, I’ll probably stick with reading the manga and raws in the future despite the manga being an inferior adaption. The current translator’s work is not bad quality, but they have split each chapter into an average of three parts. This story is already slow paced enough as it is. I’m not someone who minds waiting for another year before the translator catches up, but this isn’t a novel that suits shorter chapters. Chapter 14 was probably the worst chapter we will have for a long time due to a truly annoying character spouting ridiculous demands. Imagining that split into multiple parts is just... *shudders* No one needs to suffer through three “chapters” of that.

I also find it disrespectful of the original work to not only make such a change, but to pass it off as an official chapter. Any loss in quality from changing the pace then gets attributed to the author by any unsuspecting readers. Most groups who split chapters properly label them as parts for a reason.

Masking small releases as a full chapter is a practice I’ve seen more and more of in the last 2 years and it’s not a good trend for translation groups, even if it could boost their release and click rates... in theory. I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews given as a result of this practice which is more likely to limit their potential readers.

I did not dock any points from my rating. This novel deserves better than that. My honest rating is a 4. The attempted comedic elements result in a few really annoying characters. The plot, story building, and even the romance are still solid despite this. <<less

Tho this is not a new plot, this is absolutely a gem. I love the FL and ML in this and

the fact that the author transmigrates in the story as the saintess is new. Meaning, she's going to be a headache for our FL and ml.

I also hope that there will also be a love rival in the future ? I want to see the emperor get jealous hahaha

This novel is sooooo funny, thanks a lot to the translator to bring this one. The FL is a good girl talented to be a villain and the tyrant is just so cute. Too bad there’s no smut in it, LOL. The plot is just so unique, it’s a must read!
